Intel's refusal to properly support HDMI/DisplayPort to a TV without clipping the black levels makes their integrated GPUs worthless to me. I'm selling my newer laptop in favor of keeping my old one that has ATI graphics for this reason alone.
I just bought one last night. I'm tired of all the little broken things and lagginess of my two previous Android phones and iOS isn't for me.
I'm not paranoid about privacy concerns because I have nothing to hide.
Exactly. I live in a university town and the local Radio Shack stocks all sorts of parts, soldering tools & supplies, Arduinos, soldering kits, and other gadgetry.
The EE dept's electronic shop is still the place to go for specific parts though.
Not necessarily. Embedded systems, for example, can absolutely rely upon closed-source software for which there is no open/cheaper/comparable alternative. I posted my reply while on break from working on such a very thing.
The company's growing rapidly and raking in $$$. I fail to see how they have a "horrible business model".
I just ditched Google Voice after using it for 2-3 years because it's incredibly unreliable. Missed/late deliveries of texts, incoming calls that don't arrive and go straight to voicemail (with an occasional notification that I even have one!), and messages that won't even send without a reboot. I'm far from the only one either.
Sorry Google, but I need my phone to actually work as a phone. I guess I got what I paid for.
Funny- it's Intel's driver for my PRO/1000 GT that's been occasionally causing my desktop to crash and reset when going into standby, according to the minidumps. Maybe it's just Intel that's not ready for Windows 8?
