Comment Re:Buy AMD & Support a Healthy CPU Marketplace (Score 1) 224

Dead on. I haven't used an AMD CPU in probably 15+ years as they haven't been competitive with Intel. I get that all the neckbeards want to stick it to the man (Intel), but frankly, Intel's offerings have kicked AMDs ass nine ways to Sunday. I'd rather spend a few bucks to get an awesome CPU that lasts a few years (i7-4770K still kicking) than an inferior, slower product.

The average ATT store employee has NO CLUE.

So true. I was investigating weird ATT data usage on my account so I brought in a spreadsheet with dates and data usage. The usage column was in kbps and I got in an argument with the worker-drone as to what those numbers mean in MB. This dude turned to the "manager" with a quizzical look on his face and the manager tried to argue with me as to what a MB was.

Both of them had zero idea what I was talking about and I lost all respect for the people they employ in their retail locations.

Shoot, Comcast is probably 1% worried about Google messing up their equipment and 99% worried about Google stealing Comcast's precious customers. Let's be honest here, Comcast doesn't give a shit if there stuff works, but as soon as Google shows up with an alternative, Comcast all of a sudden cares? Riiiiight.
