Must get a spellchecker
I would have to agree with you, Synology for their NAS range is very intuitive for non techy people, shame the hardware underneath is a bit underpowered for what it could be. For SOHO though you could pretty much run one as the main server. Great GUI for a linux backend. XPEnology is pretty good too though, best of both worlds when installed on to a mid end PC (thinking i5 / low end Xeon ?) not entirely legal though I suspect. I guess the usibility is why their NAS's hold their price second hand as it can't be the power of the hardware or reletively slow network transfer rates that keep them popular. Hmm, where have we seen that before ? Apple ?
I think the feds have just busted an international ring of people who like to do that sort of thing.
Catalogue the contents and when you lose it all you can spend 10 minutes searching for the 2% of the content you really want to download again and feel good that you now have 98% of your storage space back to start filling with more crap
can i have your stuff?
Plenty of fans out there who would queue up to lick the backside of those.
So many high end brands move their production to China sending blueprints of their lucrative products to sweatshops and then wonder why the market suddenly gets flooded with counterfeit/perfect copies. They only really have themselves to blame for selling out their own countrys workers in the name of more profit. +1 for making them foot the customs bill though, hopefully at a vastly inflated rate plus expenses.
Add the tech they use to create this Battlefield 3 simulator and swap their projectors for a rift and I think I might have a good reason to clear out the toolshed and remortgage the house, doubt the wife would appreciate the expense though.
is at least much more lucrative than mining bitcoin with only a GPU, AND you get whizzy laser effects and music to sleep to.
I have started using lastpass's automagic password creation doodah to randomly generate my passwords, I am of course (foolishly) trusting them to stay in business for the rest of my life and paying the measly $10 / sorry, now $12pa to keep them "safe". Is that safer than using the same memorable passwords (tiered for banking/work stuff/forum spamming/unimportant stuff) variations on the same theme just to memorise them? I dont know, SSO in a way but there comes a point in life where it all becomes too many to remember. What to do? For example, World of tanks did not allow me to use non alphabetic characters FFS, unbelievable how many times I use their "reset my password" facility as I cant remember it. Might just get a big bunch of post-it notes and put them around the monitor like my Bosses do.
Since I got a Roku with Plex thats all I do anyway, Works for me.
But learn whatever it takes to webify those embedded systems with utterly pointless interfaces to appeal to the new generation of people who wont even buy a loaf of bread unless it can be monitored by their mobile device. Now, off to the shop to buy toilet paper as my iWipe assroll monitor says that the bathroom is reporting only 3 slices left. Get off my........
Very Very Frightening
Convert them to SteamOS, I can buy hats while I am waiting for a balance update.
