The only "Intel inside" that were allowed in our house are in the wife's Macs... I'll buy Intel when they are the only option left.

AMD 8088, AMD 386, AMD K6-2, Athlon S754, Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition, FX-6300 Black Edition, an AMD A8 and A10-8700P laptop.

All but the first three are still in working order. Looking forward to building a new Ryzen desktop later this year.

Quicksaver has five extensions, four of which are Featured by Moz://a

1) Findbar Tweak, 2) OmniSidebar, 3) Tab Groups, 4) Beyond Australis, and Puzzle Bars.

All of them will be gone with Firefox 57. I highly doubt Piro will be able to continue Tree Style Tab and co either.

Firefox users are fucked.

For the most savings, buy a late-year previous gen around March of the following year.E.g. Purchase a Sep.-Nov 2015 model, in March 2017. Otherwise you are going to mostly see full priced (~$600) phones. Whereas those $500-$600 phones will be $300 to $400 within a little over a years time.

For example, the Moto X Force, Asus Zenphone 2, and LG's V10.

As a feature, "user-changeable batteries" has been chopped almost across the board. LG was the last major OEM to do so. Yet that is not the same thing as, "user-replaceable batteries". Where the first requires a mechanism to easily slide a battery in and out - without taking the device apart. the latter just requires one be able to take the device apart without destroying the frame. That's what I've run into the most, if you can actually get the device apart the battery is not usually glued in place and can be replaced.

For instance, the Pixel's internal design took cues from Googles Modular Phone endeavor -- and many of the internal components are easily replaceable. They (google) don't get any credit for that at all. As most of the user-reaction to Google (here and other tech-enthusiast sites) crap all over them no matter what they do.

The smart-phone market is heavily slanted towards a few key players. The other OEMs need to either charge much less (and less profit) to gain marketshare, or charge more (less sales) -- which doesn't put any of them in a very good place. When the other OEMs go-it-different than the majors, and don't see any increase in sales, then we will continue to see what we are seeing: everyone making the same thing with minor differences.
