Wow, what a colossal glittering jewel of ignorance the AC espouses! No, not all lithium batteries are the same. At best, a Samsung S4 battery will use a generic 1500mAh cell with filter material to fake a real one that's rated for 1800mAh. At worst, the actual cell is substandard quality in both materials and protection circuitry that leads to a run-away exothermic reaction; FIRE!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You were saying?
You paid for, and trust a counterfeit battery?! Don't let that 12 bucks burn a hole in your pocket.
BTW, my phone isn't just for personal use, it's also business. When I need a working phone, I need one ASAP. As usual YMMV. For me, value is in turn-around time to resolution; be it replace or repair.
Never been to sauna, but I want to try. I'm a texan, so we don't really have the environment for that being a warm gulf state. When I traveled to China, I did try the hot springs (Singapore design I think) while I detoxed with rice tea; more or less. But yes, you come out feeling like a million bucks. I only wish I could do it once a month or more often.
And yet you can die in temps and lower humidity levels from heatstroke. Figure that shit out. The moment your "ambient temperer sensors" turn off is the time you should leave IMHO. That's a real bad thing to have happen.
See, that's why I get AppleCare. It's both insurance and covers battery failure too. Just walk right into an Apple store and often they will either replace the battery right then and there, or swap the phone within the hour. Restore from iCloud and done! To hell with those other cell replacement plans or insurance policies, AppleCare is the way to go.
Can I walk into a BestBuy or elsewhere and get the same level of service for a Samsung phone?
8. Install Windows Updates each month. No excuse. Also get rid of XP and go with Windows 7 or newer.
IT 101 for SMB (or any business)
1. Get a business class Next-Generation firewall.
2. Don't install JRE or Flash if you can at all avoid it; they're vector for web drive-by-download malware
3. Installed managed AV for all workstations.
4. Block outbound port 25 (SMTP) so as to not be black-listed and fart SPAM from an infected machine to others out in the world.
5. Block TOR at FW level. Unfortunately. it's how bot-nets communicate these days.
6. Limit share access by department and roles.
7. Educate users of cons online.
The more space you have, the more hardware you can cram into it. All things being equal in hardware, extra space defines performance. From multi-socket CPUs, to 4x SLI video cards and beyond.
Basically, the desktop says to the laptop "whatever you can do i can do better!"
Thermo nuclear war. Lets see... With TNW, you can kill off the main population; the malthusianist would be happy. Nuclear winter would ostensibly counter AGW. And, well, conquest of warfare. But most of all, the Earth will be saved.
Feeling confident yet?
It's what happens when you go poking around where you shouldn't. Do not attempt to solve this problem, or the universe will end.
TLDR. Encryption is like storing a memory outside the brain. If you really want to crack encryption, be honest and use a $5 wrench instead.
Desktops have MUCH better cooling systems, and hence are much less likely to suffer from extreme temperature problems...
Very much true. I sysadmin about 40 high-end laptops; Dell Precision and a few HP Elitebook series. Over the past six year generation after generation, I would say at least 10 of those suffered a GPU failure at some point. Most occurred under the extended warranty, a few past. As for the HPs, one had its GPU die. I try to blow as much dust as possible when one crosses my path. Very easy to tell who has pets at home and who doesn't. Unfortunately, these users are geoscientists that run some serious programs and need to be mobile. Point being in all this, I've never seen a high-end nVidia Quadro card fail in a desktop machine, but plenty in laptops.
I'm sure there's that, but really I think it's how wealthy parents view their children; as precious little snowflakes. The slightest thing that may harm them, wont.
My son got all his shots. He cried when I held him. But you know what, I wont have to worry about him growing up strong only later to be taken down by some fucking virus that was ostensibly eradicated. If anyone reading this has children that are not yet vaccinated, now is the time to start talking to your pediatrician ASAP!
