Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

More on Sony & Bloatware

It seems that someone at Sony has probably fallen on his sword: the proposal to charge $50 for NOT installing bloatware/crapware has caused a very prompt volte-face from Sony: the statement from the company runs:-

"Starting March 22, Sony will offer Fresh Start free of charge. We want VAIO users to have the best experience possible with our PCs, and we believe Fresh Start will help ensure that happens right out-of-the-box."

Reported here.

I am still working up to the full Vista rant - I am so angry that I am looking for XP...

Until the next time
