English to Chinese translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - IT (Information Technology) / Vista security
English term or phrase: cute
Worst of all, some new features added to Vista actually have proven detrimental to overall security. In January, hackers discovered that Vista’s speech recognition feature could be used to gain limited access to a remote system, including the ability to delete arbitrary files. Such annoyances sound almost cute — until they result in real data loss.
不是所有的“new features ”，而是“some new features ”。这里讲得挺清楚，某些新功能已经被证明损害了整体安全性能。它们看似华丽，其实包藏隐患。一旦发作，就是十足的“annoyances”。用“cute”这个词，是说它们华而不实。这句话换一种写法就是：“Such new features are not annoyances until they result in real data loss。”
