    Some people are quick to catch up, others are simply slower.

    It's like audio dealers who have access to more gear, and some of them...are among my best friends.

    Historically, Apple excelled with Jobs & Microsoft with Bill. Balmer is gone & Microsoft attitudes are changing. If Microsoft fell out of mainstream consumer favour, it would be bad for the industry.

    Vendor interoperability alliances will win the day. The next paradigm is be connected to anything at any time.

    Who has more to connect to?

    Long live Lisa.

    Lisa, ...Mona Lisa?

    ______________

    Earlier today I lost Goggle Chrome; blue screen, and nothing that I could do!
    I tried to get online support but that too I couldn't access anymore!

    So I tried different things for about half hour and finally gave up and call a technician.
    I let him inside my laptop (Windows 8.1) and he worked in there for about half an hour.
    He eradicated Google Chrome program, literally, did a bunch of other things that I'm simply not familiar with, then proceeded to re-install Goggle Chrome, with more settings from various hidden sections (to me anyway), and restored my life back!

    I asked him why did I lose Google Chrome (my main browsing home page, and that was the very first time something like that happened in my life, with my new laptop, because it never happened before in my old PC), and he just said that glitches happen with computers. ...What!

    I'm still shaking, and I wonder what's going to be next. There are things in life with PCs (or laptops), that you just cannot understand.
    At least I don't; anyone with an idea here?

    My old PC, with Windows XP (no more support, plus I cannot use IE because of the bugs rampant nowadays), is almost dead (extremely slow), but never did I lose my home page (Google Chrome).
    Only with my brand new laptop that I experienced issue after issue! I'm at lost and figure that even if I get another one, other issues will be waiting for me.

    How can Google Chrome totally disappear and be replaced by a full blue screen just like that! ...Totally beats me!
    I tell you, that was quite a riot! ...For a moment I thought that it was the blue screen of death!

    There is always something new almost every day, and just like today.

    If someone here have ever experienced something very similar to me, please share your experience so that perhaps I can make sense of it all.
    How many years does it take before you are in full control of your own destiny?

    _____________________

    Yeah, that IE (Internet Explorer) browser thing is very sad. It is scary actually! ...And I don't want to use it; not in my PC, not in my laptop, and not in my smartphone! ...Plus all those sites (Google, Yahoo, etc.) where they are under attack and you need to change all your passwords!

    HEY! Maybe that's what happened to me! ...Because Google is vulnerable right now as I learned not long ago. What sez you?

    Rob, where the heck are you?

    Re: Major Microsoft IE bug exposed

    This is very serious, and I was not telling a joke above when I said that I completely lost my main browser earlier today; Google Chrome, and that I got the blue screen of death! That's what it was; I just found out.

    * Microsoft fixes big IE bug -- even on Windows XP - CNET

    ** Internet Explorer security bug fix released by Microsoft - Technology & Science - CBC News

    *** Microsoft delivers Internet Explorer security patch to all versions | Q13 FOX News

    And there are several other websites with comments from people which are extremely alarming!

    I am the most serious right now: Microsoft lost a huge point with me, and I am now doing more intense research in the goal to acquire a totally new PC, a MacPro. ...Or iMax (iMac), or MacAir, or MacBro, or just simply a Macintosh computer from Apple. ...With Mac OS. ...Of course.

    Microsoft you are no longer part of my existence, and I will recommend to all Windows users to switch over to Apple. You brought this upon yourself, and now it's about goddamn time to move forward, finally, after 13 years living with that IE bug! ...That's right; I just found out the truth about it today; just google it, you'll see.

    Bad bad bad apple Microsoft, you are totally rotten to the core.

    Re: Major Microsoft IE bug exposed

    And Mike, I am very glad that you started this thread; because without you I might have been lost forever somewhere in the cyber space, and with someone else having my identity and all my papers, passport, plane licence, credit cards, social insurance number, cash, wallets, savings from my Swiss bank accounts, retirement loots, Canary Island, all my audio gear, all my music (albums and CDs), my movies (Blu-rays and DVDs and VHS tapes), my rings, my watches, my home, my wife, my pets, my birds, my garden, my flowers, even having my own name, and all that jazz of mine!

    You might think that..., but don't, I am dead serious! ...This is XPocalypse! ...IExtremely high breach of security!

    Did you switch over to Apple Barry? ...Because that's what you should do. ...And me too. Because earlier today my blue screen of death was with Microsoft and running Windows 8.1 - the latest goddamn version! ...And with Internet Explorer11, the most updated yet (just recently released as last fall).

    Methinks that this entire abandon of support for Windows XP is Microsoft final death blow! ...And with the very highly serious security breach of its Internet Explorer (IE) all across the board (from version 8 to 11). ...And from what I just learned, IE was having bugs as earlier as 2001! ...So during a full thirteen years, and now just recently culminating to a veritable xpocalypse!

    So, keep using Microsoft products, and give away your most private privacy! ...Because security is not their mojo.
    Bye bye Microsoft, and I'm buying new Apple shares. ...And supporting their products too in real life, and preaching the good news to the yet unconverted good souls.
