Comment Re:Fujitsu products (Score 1) 100

I have a Fujitsu laptop. It's 8 years old, and I've had to put it aside temporarily because the switch that turns the backlight on when the lid opens has failed. I will "re-purpose" it as a desktop unit with an external monitor soon. It's been a great computer. Laptops are generally consumable products with a limited lifespan, but, except for normal wear and tear, this has been a great unit. It's a lot better than this Dell POS I'm using now (serious quality issues...).

Boon Pickens had a similar idea about 10 or so years ago, and his ideas got shot down for this reason.

...than my android powered LG 47G2 "smart" TV - it SUCKS! Google updated android in spite of everything I tried to prevent it, and broke a LOT of functions. And there's no way to back out of the "upgrades". I called LG and they blame google. Google says it is an issue with LG. I bet the same thing happens with Firefox OS and these new TVs.
