Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

Well, to put things into another kind of perspective: are things only worth paying attention to if they cause physical injuries, all else be damned?


No. But SOME kind of injury (physical or otherwise) would seem to me to be necessary. What kind of injury did any of these things cause anyone?

I, personally, do not agree with that view. Not allowing women to vote, for example, never caused any injury to anyone, yet it was still certainly wrong, ie. things may certainly be unjustified and/or unfair without necessarily causing an injury of any kind.

Not allowing a person the same rights as another because of their sex is most certainly injuring them, severely actually. I don't understand your analogy at all.

On the other hand, having to move your finger 3mm to the left when you talk on your phone (IF you have an already weak signal) certainly doesn't seem to me to be particularly bothersome... Certainly not worthy of a lawsuit.

They have to copy files backwards and forwards sometimes.
