The human-curated radio stations and playlists are very good. I think Apple Music is pretty good value for money. Hardly anything I can't find on there.

I suspect this is equally true of all the £10-per-month music streaming services. They have very similar catalogs.

I'm using a free 4 month trial of Microsoft Groove at the moment and yeah, I've found everything I need/want on there.

You can't.. actually... so there!

My Zune is used pretty much exclusively for Podcasts these days and I'm thinking of upgrading to a ZUne HD but I can't seem to find one for the right price.

I plugged my Zune in the other day, to see if it still worked. It did. I said "huh" and put it back into the drawer.

Yep. But where it stands apart is the stuff curated by real people and not algorithms. Unless Spotify has changed recently.

Everyone I know who uses both says Spotify is much better at it. The Discover Weekly seems to be very well-loved.

I could but then I'd have a Zune sitting in my drawer gathering dust. I wouldn't want that to happen.

One of the earlier models - maybe the first, not sure. Certainly not a fancy HD one.

I find them usually good, but with some enragingly bad exceptions. Limp Bizkit... Awful.

Fancy selling it? I've been reading about installing new hard drives in them and have been after a donor for a while.

I'll dig it out and see what kind it is, if you like.

It's yours for postage costs.

Not as good as Papa Roach, obviously.

That's going to get a little harder from now on:

Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update, called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, will bring a variety of new features. But one long-standing stalwart of the Windows experience has been put on the chopping block: Microsoft Paint.

I still use Paint several times a week. I highlight a group of files, right-click, choose 'edit' (the option doesn't appear if you highlight over 15 files), which loads them all up in Paint, where I crop and resize each one. Then when all done, I use Caesium to compress them.

There are probably easier ways, but it's the quickest I've got so far.

There are probably easier ways, but it's the quickest I've got so far.

Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"ExplorerStartupTraceRecorded"=dword:00000001
"ShellState"=hex:24,00,00,00,30,28,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
  01,00,00,00,12,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,22,00,00,00
"CleanShutdown"=dword:00000000
"Browse For Folder Width"=dword:000002bc
"Browse For Folder Height"=dword:000002e1
"link"=hex:16,00,00,00
"MultipleInvokePromptMinimum"=dword:00000064


If you save that as a reg file and run it then you're an absolute idiot.

However, if you Google for something similar and then get it from the internet and do all the backup stuff then you can open as many files as you want from the right click menu, because that's what I did with my work machine.
