Being a long time Windows user and fan (not sure I know why any more though) I of course used the Windows Update Advisor to get the Creators update as soon as it was available. Not that there was any surprises of course. As a Windows Insider I already had it installed on one of my devices and so I knew what it contained. Anyway, since the update now has gone public I thought it was time for another of my rants about Microsoft.
Be warned, this is another one of my rant posts. Rude words can be expected.
Fed up with fucking bloatware? Well I for one is really tired of all the fucking bloatware that manufacturers install on their devices before shipping them. It is sooo tiresome to have to spend hours to clean up your new device the first thing you do. And sometimes the manufacturers try to prevent you from removing their crap as well!
Windows 10’s tiles are abysmal. Not the ones that comes from pure apps pinned to the start page or menu (mostly at least) but the ones coming from pinning URL’s or folder locations. Since Microsoft Edge was introduced most pinned URL’s simply shows the Edge icon and grabs the, often way too long, page title from the site. To make matters worse you cannot change the icon nor the title as you can do with a normal desktop shortcut.
All in all smart lights are quite fun, at least I think so, as well as practical. No more running around and turning on or off all the lights. You can turn them off automatically when the sun comes up, at a certain time or when you are not at home in order to save energy. The bulbs themselves are somewhat expensive, especially if you go for the ones that can do colors, but they are LED powered so theoretically the should last a very long time, certainly longer than normal lightbulbs for sure.
