Methodology is all that matters, those 3 were the best I found by far. StorageReview is not really applicable anymore - my SSD reviews are at TR and AT now.
If I'm interested in a particular part I'll google a HEAP more places - but those are the definitive ones for me. Dislike HardOCP for their awful, terrible benchmark graphs they introduced 5 or so years back and the owner can be an ass to people too.
Pedantic but this is not the definition of a troll at all. Steven King would be trolling in his grave if he'd heard this.
We're not talking about a tree of text items - I agree with you that text only trees are messy.
We want BOTH, you know? What we had earlier!?
An icon for edit with a silly pencil and it says "edit" underneath it.
An icon with the GPS bubble, with "GPS" underneath it.
I put Cyanogenmod on my Galaxy S4 recently and the stock google camera is a _fucking disgrace_ stuff is completely unlabelled and utterly meaningless icons, just put the god damned text below the icon so I can understand what the hell is going on.
You know, like this relentless drive to make things flat, single shaded and without borders / lines or dividers making information / data easier to identify. It's all mashed together.
Furthermore the tabletification of web pages, the urge to push Google+ on their customers, really importantly also is the move to remove the menu (context) button on Android devices instead for a multi-task button. One of the _primary_ reasons, literally one of the biggest factors in me moving to Android from Apple was this genius concept of the options / settings / context "other" menu button ALWAYS being in a consistent spot and not fucking floating around on the screen randomly like it does on an iphone! (Yes, I know Blackberry did it first and credit to them too)
But nope, let's change that idea for a multi-task button, what the hell? No thanks - I'd rather just do a double tap of home for multi-task.
Then there's the removal of the text on icons - yes, I get this allows them to be able to regionalise things MUCH MUCH faster, can't deny that benefit to THEM but to me? To identify these ambiguous looking icons? Sure some are consistent, like a green telephone icon at a diagonal angle for call and flat 'hanging up' red phone for hanging up but some of the other stuff is not so clear (and even if you figure it out it takes time to process) It took me at least 30 seconds to figure out how to edit a draft email in the new gmail app about 6 months ago, because they removed the fucking text 'edit' - there's a small pencil icon instead, tucked in a corner.
So yes, a poor UI design program is bloody essential, if not the fucking firing of developers when a project is complete. STOP fiddling, STOP justifying your jobs somehow. Some internet websites / apps are services now. They are like water, it's like a toaster, does it REALLY need to actually change?
Do I really need multiple inboxes? I LIKE the priority inbox, now already the damn thing is 'grandfathered' for their new design, how long until that multi-inbox thing is forced on me as the old one is finally terminated / not supported?
Sorry to rant but Google for the past 18 months is NOT the google of previous times, they are driving me frankly, fucking bonkers. Get your shit together.

(Which is quite over rated)
I would give them both about a 6/10.
Second one has a very slow start but ultimately, not too bad. I saw it in 2D and honestly I expected much worse, it's not a shabby movie to be honest - not entirely deep or great but not bad.
I'm not into the whole comic book thing, so I look at them as regular action movies, I don't care if they "fucked up" a character or any of that. I think the best comic book movie in the last few years was probably Iron Man 1, it's just done fairly well - good story, decent effects, it's not bad.
It's worse, people are cottoning on to this, it's fucking addictive poison which wreaks havok on the body in a biochemical sense.
Transfats certainly aren't "the good fats" but people aren't getting as fat from fat than they are sugar.
The reality is the anti-aging drink, nuclear fusion and EMP weapons are all byproducts of the biggest find, which was of course the unicorn lair. Technology beyond your wildest dreams, the unicorns have always held it back from us.
I for one hail our North Korean, unicorn riding overlords.
Americans seem to HATE the shit out of DST, why I don't know - it baffles me.
There's always these debates, every year same old arguments each time.
Fact is we lead mostly 9-5 lives. You can argue all you like that if I want more daylight, I should get up earlier and leave work earlier, that's never going to happen - life isn't going to change like that.
I love the shit out of DST, it's beautiful, every Melbournian I know loves it, in summer we get these awesome awesome long evenings of light, peoples moods are better, you can go out and so and enjoy stuff for hours. If you're fortunate enough to finish work around 4-ish you can really get a lot done in peak summer. It's cheery and it's great.
If anything, winter should be moved to DST too
As for the complexity of it, my PC's all do it automatically, my phone does it automatically, I need to change the time on my wristwatch, microwave and house clock. This is not a major issue.
The marketing spin has been incredible, specifically over the last 5 years against plasma, somehow the entire "LED vs LCD" thing managed to paint the LED lit panels as the definitive display technology (those of us who understand colour depth, contrast, banding and just plain old "moving nicely" / refresh rate know this is simply not the case)
I managed to pick up earlier this year the second best display in the 2012 / 2013 (ST50) series, 65" - I love the thing, apparently the last Panasonic the ST60 has display lag, bad for gamers- however that could be unfounded and surprising for a plasma.
So for those of us that detest LCD screens (and that's mostly the plasma buyers and video enthusiasts) - we all best hope the OLEDs take off. I finally did some actual research for about 8 hours a few months back to get a better understanding of OLED and yeah ok, I finally get it. We've got a plasma and CRT killer here, finally (LCD and LED were never in the running) the blacks are incredible, the colour range is apparently larger / wider than what the high end digital video cameras can even capture for film, the refresh rate is in the tens or hundreds of thousands of times per second (?!) it's also the thinnest and it uses little power. Viewing angles astonomical, Burn in is a potential issue (slowly getting better) and overall display life is also a potential issue (again, slowly getting better)
We finally have one available to actually buy, in TV form (55" OLED in Korea is now on sale, a measly $10,000) - but considering it's a new tech, I'm actually surprised it's that cheap.
My guess is that in
I do hope to see them on PC desks eventually too. LCD / LED movement is horribly grainy and nasty, I just can't deal with it.
(One more thing, I'd heard Panasonic was doing a joint research lab with someone to move to OLED? So perhaps their days as a premium display manufacturer are not over)
Either way, hope my Panasonic doesn't die for at least 3 or 4 years.
You seriously have no idea what you're talking about.
Watch this and get back to us.
Watchout the reddit lurkers might get angry and start replying to hassle you!
The phones are capable of shooting in portrait or landscape and auto-rotating the video.
One would assume when you start the recording process in a portrait state, you want to see it "normal".
Furthermore, how hard would it be for a camera app to display a small arrow on the display depicting where "up" is.
Finally, I don't care about rotating on the phone itself, rotating even on a PC isn't that simple either
For the love of all things holy, can camera software / smartphone software detect if the user has _initiated_ the recording rotated and adapt appropriately?
Alternatively, can we get some simple, easy software which rotates video easily? Pictures are a breeze, video seemingly not. It's 2013 already!
