Same here. Thats why I cant play games anymore. They all want to be downloaded, then constantly updated or you can't play until you get the update. We cant get cable or dsl, we use expensive verizon lte and cant watch netflix, youtube and have to turn off autoupdates on all out computers, phones and tablets. The only games I can play are pirated versions, downloaded someplace else and brought home. They come as a complete download, ready to install and patched to not go online to check for updates.

But likely listening to a cd was just done via an analog input on the soundcard, the cd drive was doing the digital to audio conversion so it wasnt really using any resources. But yes, i multitaskeds on win 3.1 also with some minor programs, game of course sucked and had to reboot in dos mode to play them. What was my sound card setting again ? set blaster a220 i7 d1

Comment dont try tmobile (Score 1) 142

They may look good, low prices and no overage charger (only reduced speed) but for most of the country it will have no service or Edge (slow 2g). We have tmobile and it sucks when traveling. Soon as your outside a city you loose coverage. Try verizon, best coverage but most expensive. Turn off all your iphone autoupdates for both system and apps, that will help.

Comment I have a great TP Link router (Score 1) 278

and it cost about $25 on newegg, I use it for the kid's wifi, it shuts off at 10pm during the week. Last time I looked, it said uptime was about 254 days, I have much more expensive routers that cant go nearly that long without needing reboots. I have zero interest on these $200+ routers everyone is dumping on the market now, even with google branding.

Pretty much. We got a few galaxy relays when they first came out about 3 years ago, in that time there was 1 update. Im now running a 3rd party rom, debloated, many new security updates and features with longer battery life an faster performance as a bonus. Why offer updates for old phones when people can just go buy a new one.

Too little to late. Even if it is better on paper, no one will switch. I use chrome now, I can run it on most any OS, desktop or mobile, sync everything (passwords, history, bookmarks, add-ons) and it works fine.

Anyway, the main reason Id never recommend anyone use a microsoft browser is they are always tied to closely to the OS and just an easy gateway for malware.

Comment Ok, but why ? (Score 1) 62

Since you get get these emulators for free or better ad free versions for $5, hardly seems worth buying a phone just for that feature. Other than that looks like any a countless number of other phones. If it had hardware keypad or gamepad then it might stand out from the noise.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
