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".
Because, you know, some businesses don't rely on closed-source software for their continued existence...
So, Spock's Brain wasn't such a crazy episode after all!
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? Win8 Pro RTM x64 from MSDNAA.
You could put some backup drives in a safe deposit box. With as much as you're storing, it may be beneficial to store just the bare drives.
I'm not sure what to think of this- by becoming a direct competitor to the Windows 8 app store, isn't Steam losing its differentiation as a specialty store for games? This might end up hurting them in the long run.
At that point, you might as well just build a train.
Not a problem with a Thinkpad.
I made a little over $130 on this program since I always used it when I built computers for friends and family. Fortunately my new CC has rewards but Newegg isn't a member- I guess I'll take my business to Tiger Direct from now on.
Yeah, and it also makes me feel warm that valley high school, which already has a billion IBM laptops including some very nice Core Duo T60s, will probably get even more stuff out of this. Maybe they'll put the money towards more smartboards, those things are fun.
