Windows and Windows Defender : YOU coded it, so YOU get to protect us!

The "Feedback Hub" in Windows 10 (in case it's only for Windows Insider Builds; just think of it as a question now and then regarding some feature or change in the latest Windows build.

No hassle, either just give a 1-5 score, or ramble on and hope someone at MS reads it (or sometimes don't hope!)....

In the extremely likely idea Microsoft aren't presenting my feedback to Balmer every morning,
why not present it to the world?!

How hard is it to understand the antivirus protection status using Windows Defender?My AnswerScore 4 / 5
Make people give thought to who really is in the best position to write protective software and other components for Windows 10; how can it not be the people who wrote/have access to the source code?
In general, all antivirus software is close to scam-ware, pretending to protect you from malicious code, when code is just as lacking in moral motivation and responsibility as any other language; thereby only giving customers protection afte…

Netcom blir Telia - beholder lusa på nettsiden

Telia har videreført Netcoms horrible hjemmeside, med bugs jeg har observert i årevis; mange, særlig JavaScript-feil, har blitt med gjennom flere iterasjoner av siden og designet(!).

Dette kan under tvil aksepteres...hadde det ikke vært for de vedvarende problemene knyttet til routingen til "Din Side" etter en vellykket innlogging....feilmeldinger, røver re-routes og kludder har plaget akkurat denne funksjonaliteten i lengre tid, og er så in-your-face at det vitner om et selskap blottet for personlig initiativ og/eller et teknologisk verdensbilde;
uansett skremmende fra Nordens telegigant...

Uten å gå inn på det tekniske, denne ble litt for morsom...etter en vellykket innlogging,
ble jeg sendt til den lovende URL'en

Dessverre så den slik ut :

Gosh darn if Microsoft didn't make me do it again!

Don't feel like much of an Insider really....wish you'd use the Windows 10 intro screen background, giving a changelog written in appropriate technological difficulty (somewhere between the style of MSDN and (leaning heavily towards MSDN)...
I've not bothered doing real investigative work for any of the upgrades, and the only things I've really noticed is the disappearance of settings in a lot of software, resetting either completely or fully to a first install. Do that to MS-software (of course), but why reset third party software? If it's compatibility or even security you're worried about, I can't see what settings could ever make a privileged, installed program gain any "superpowers" or accidently slip into a hole in the ground or whatnot. If an application from a third party crashes, that is not yours or my responsibility.
I feel bad for not at least giving a score of 2, for the effort and to reward giving me the opportuni…

Pesky Apps Spit In The Face Of The PC

Why Are There Apps On My PC (or, how my mobile phone impregnated a gullible world)
I remember with fondness the sound recording application that came with Windows 3.1;
maybe even sooner, 3.1 was my starting point regarding GUI.

However....over 20 years down the line, in this world of Windows 10, when I typed "recorder" in the Start Menu, the abhoration that appeared made me shiver, and suddenly a pop-up came from the right of my screen, Microsoft wondering how much I loved the newest I began writing, venting and in the end...ranting. Here is an unedited copy of my message to Microsoft, maybe one day I'll edit and make it more general and to the point, but please...don't hold your breath.

How can you share from an app that has so little functionality that, if you settle for it, you can't possibly have any interesting or worthwhile to say....Complete idiots will record stuff, never know what a sound file is, or a microphone, or how to manage the sound … har lite betryggende nettsider om sin garanti


Passord, må du være så kronglete?

Vil virkelig sikkerheten blir kompromitert om man kan holde seg til passord man klarer å ha i hodet mens man bytter tab, går fra telefon til skjerm...skal det være firesifra, hold det til jubileumsår ;-) 2400, 8800....kodene er jo (håper jeg...) kun gyldelige
i et minutt eller to, så gir dette virkelig økt sikkerhet?
