Windows 7 vs Royal Mail

You should all be aware that Windows 7 is out on the 22nd October 2009. This has been planned for quite some time. However only recently the workers at the Royal Mail have decided to go on Strike on the 22nd and 23rd October 2009.

I don't know if you picked this up already, but the release of Windows 7 will be delayed even longer because of employees of the Royal Mail.

If it was me, I would personally look to employ some of the 2 million unemployed UK citizens (according to the BBC) and give them £4 an hour (cash in hand). This would put pressure on the fortunate Royal Mail staff that still have a job to "shut up" and "get on with it".

Remember this, there are over 2 million people that could replace you tomorrow. So don't cause grief to others expecting goods, money, travel documents and so on.

Also I was in charge at the Royal Mail, I would teach them a lesson by paying them 1 week later. Two can play at that game...

Apple users lose files

Anyone upgrading to the OS "Snow Leapord" may lose all their files when they login under a guest account.

According to the BBC "The problem, reported by more than 100 users on discussion forums, surfaced shortly after the OS's August release." Now that includes everything like pictures, videos, music and so on.

For those of you that are careful, I hope you ran a backup of your files as no OS is 100% perfect.

If you want to use a quick fix, backup the files in other accounts, delete the guest account profiles and then a new profile should work fine.

Final Note:
Tell your friends with the OS that you've heard of this great program called "iDelete". It only works when they login as a guest :)
