Comment High end systems should be built (Score 1) 391

If I want a low end system it seems like I can't build one for less than Dell/HP/Acer/Whatever sells them. But if I want something with say 16Gb of RAM, a real SSD (not the "hybrid" BS), and maybe a decent video card then suddenly the price goes up like it is orange juice a IHOP. I bought my desktop and laptop. I built my server because Dell wanted $2900 for a system I was able to build for $750.

Comment Notifications and running in the background (Score 1) 243

I use CCleaner on my Windows systems. I does not run as a service. Since it does not run as a service it does not regularly display notices on my desktop telling me I need to use. So why does every single android app that does something similar, and almost every other app I try to install, want to run in the background and send me notices? This is the same reason I banned Adobe Reader from my desktops. Please Android developers, stop acting like your app is so important that it need to be constantly running and eating up my resources.
