@OzBobWa: I don't know if we want to delve into that argument, it's not really within the scope of our show. But I would mention a few things:
* After doing the battery rundown tests, in addition to just seeing how long it ran until the battery died, it would be more scientific to look at the System Power Report to make sure there weren't other background processes contributing too much to the battery usage.
* To get even more scientifically accurate results from the report, it'd be best to use systems which have integrated power metering chips (we talked about this in more detail in our earlier episode on Energy Estimation Engine). Unfortunately, most devices on the market do not have these.
* As there is video playback involved, the results may vary significantly across different hardware because hardware offload for GPU and audio may be a factor.
* As mentioned in this episode, screen brightness is a big factor. I don't know if these other people who did these tests were forcing a consistent screen brightness across all of their tests. If not, their results could be misleading.
@s3curityConsult: Thanks. :) I was under the impression the officially released Windows Insider builds were supposed to have symbols indexed on the symbol server. If you do ".symfix" and then ".reload" does it find them?
@Luke:Not enough information there to determine anything. If you share the .dmp on a OneDrive we could take a look. If I'm not mistaken, though, that looks like Office 2007, which hasn't gotten any non-security fixes in several years now, so the real answer might be to update to a newer version of Office.
