FEATURE: ‘ Microsoft downloads Windows 10 on system, even if you don’t opt in ‘


Windows 10

#AceSoftwareNews – Sept.13: Microsoft has said that Windows 10 files will be downloaded automatically on to your PC powered with version 7, 8 and 8.1, if you have enabled the automatic update option. However, users now claim, that regardless of whether you have opted in for the free upgrade or not, the update happens in the background, taking up a significant amount of storage space ranging from 3.5 to 6GB.

While the automatic updates are important as they contain security content and bug fixes, note that Windows 10 is a whole new operating system and takes a considerable amount of storage space. In an statement issued to the Inquirer, Microsoft said: “For individuals who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update, we help upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they’ll need if they decide to upgrade. When the upgrade is ready, the customer will be prompted to install Windows 10 on the device.”

To get the Windows 10 free upgrade, you needed to reserve your copy, which will be downloaded automatically when available. You could also create a USB drive or DVD to download once, so as to use the upgrade on multiple PCs. However, now it is reported that the update downloads even for those who have not reserved it.

This development was first discovered by a reader of the Inquirer who claims, “The symptoms are repeated failed ‘Upgrade to Windows 10’ in the WU update history and a huge 3.5GB to 6GB hidden folder labelled ‘$Windows.~BT’. I thought Microsoft [said] this ‘upgrade’ was optional. If so, why is it being pushed out to so many computers where it wasn’t reserved, and why does it try to install over and over again?

“I know of two instances where people on metered connections went over their data cap for August because of this unwanted download. My own internet (slow DSL) was crawling for a week or so until I discovered this problem. In fact, that’s what led me to it. Not only does it download, it tries to install every time the computer is booted,” he added.

#AceSocialNews – Sept.13: Writers, poets, intellectuals, authors and literary figures have demanded the government to make Pashto an official and educational language.

Speakers at the World Pashto Conference spoke at length on the importance of mother-languages and urged the federal government to grant national and official status to all languages in the country.

Pashto Academy Quetta organised a three-day Pashto International Conference “Pashto Language and Globalisation, Challenges and Possibilities” at a local hotel in Quetta on Saturday.

Governor Balochistan Muhammad Khan Achakzai while inaugurating the conference termed the mother-language imperative for the promotion of education and success of a society.

Renowned Pashto literary personalities from Kabul, Kandahar, Canada, Germany and various parts of the world participated in the conference, which thoroughly discussed history, the importance of, and challenges to, the Pashto language.

Prominent among those who participated in the Conference were Pashto Academy President Syed Khair Muhammad Arif, Muhammad Masoom Hotak from Canada, Wali Muhammad Achakzai from Germany, Habibullah Rafi from Kabul Afghanistan, Professor Dr. Fazal Rahim Marwat, Vice Chancellor Bacha Khan University Charsada, Abdul Ghafoor Lewal from Afghanistan and others.

“Committed nations make their dead languages alive,” Muhammad Khan Achakzai said while referring to various ancient languages around the globe. He pointed out that Pashto was neither an educational nor official language, but Pashto-loving personalities were still publishing books in Pashto, despite the odds.

Pashto writers, poets, intellectuals, journalists and authors presented their papers during the conference and thoroughly shed light on the history and importance of Pashto language. “Everyone has to work hard for promotion of Pashto,” Habibullah Rafi, a writer from Afghanistan told the participants of the conference. The conference will continue till September 14.

Slaves, Sleaford Mods, Stormzy, Jungle and headliners The Chemical Brothers play day two of Bestival


STORMZY_JF_2319.jpg
#AceMediaReport – Sept.13: The second day of Bestival (September 12) ended with a headline set from The Chemical Brothers and performances from Stormzy, Sleaford Mods and many more. Making their return to Robin Hill Park 8 years after they performed in 2007, the electronic duo treated the Saturday night crowd to a 90-minute audio-visual extravaganza complete with green lasers, towering clockwork robots and terror-inducing animation. Opening with their 1999 track ‘Hey Boy, Hey Girl’, the performance took in their much-loved canon of dance hits, including ‘Do It Again’, ‘Go’ – taken from 2015 album, ‘Born in the Echoes’ – and ‘Swoon’, which saw the heaving party crowd sway in unison. As they kicked ‘The Boxer’ into gear, huge brightly coloured inflatable balls were cast out to a simulated backdrop of exploding balloons. Ensuring the night went out in true rave style, they finished on ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’, before playing ‘Push The Button’ and ‘Galvanize’. Jenn Five Meanwhile, Stormzy drew in one of the biggest crowds of the weekend to the Invaders of the Future stage with hundreds of people spilling out of the sides, all sitting on friends’ shoulders to try and catch a glimpse of the 22-year-old Croydon grime MC. He tore through tracks like ‘Know Me From’ and ‘Not That Deep’, requesting his audience to “make some fucking noise!”, to which they more were than happy to oblige. Shortly before, Baltimore’s Future Islands played the Big Top, with charismatic singer Samuel Herring’s eliciting pure joy from his fans. “This song is a dream of you and me.
This is a song about standing by the sea wrestling with a question,” said Herring before launching into the plaintive synth-rock of ‘A Dream of You and Me’ as well as tracks likes ‘Walking Through That Door’ from 2010’s ‘In Evening Air’, imbuing his showmanship with snake-hipped dance moves, twirls and eye-watering can-can kicks. Nottingham’s Sleaford Mods brought their punk poetry to the Big Top.
Jason Williamson spat out a torrent of impassioned rhymes from 2015’s acclaimed album ‘Key Market’s, including ‘Live Tonight’ and ‘No One’s Bothered’, as well as ‘Tied Up In Notz’ – from 2014’s ‘Divide and Exit’ – about which Williamson said: “that song was written for my mum and grandma.”
“Let’s have a very fucking stupid time together!” urged Slaves’ singer Isaac Holman, as the crowd paid heed to his command, turning The Big Top into a slurry of moshing bodies.
Holman got a group of fancy-dress elves to crowdsurf as he asked “is anyone on a devastating comedown?” and red-faced people chanted the band’s lyrics to hits like ‘Cheer Up London’ and ‘Live Like An Animal’ at the top of their lungs. “Thank you for watching us. Have a good night look after each other don’t do anything we wouldn’t do,” laughed Holman.

Earlier in the day, Jungle performed a confident set on the main stage, with the audience grooving along to songs like ‘Platoon’ in the unexpected early evening warmth, with the band’s Josh Lloyd-Watson joking; “I heard a rumour that Rob da Bank [festival organiser] sold his soul for the sunshine.”

The festival finishes today (Sunday 13) with performances from Boy Better Know,

The Jacksons, Ratboy, Skepta and a headline set from Missy Elliot.
