Comment $500 mirror (Score 1) 290

Let's see... 5 bucks for a mirror... 500 for a camera. Sure. After all cars are cheap. What's another few hundred bucks. And who wants to spend 5 bucks for a replacement mirror when they can pay 500? Plus installation.

They all have flaws. Use one for this, another for that. One has neat add ons, the other has crap. 9 jillion browsers out there and none of them do a decent job.

Problem with that is the shows themselves are built to x amount of minutes. Seems to me they really can't cut them unless the shows themselves are produced a bit longer. Last I heard, the average sitcom was actually 22 minutes in length.

Comment Not happy with 10 (Score 1) 288

I installed 10 on a laptop. When setting up it gives an option to opt out of auto update. But... auto updates anyway. What scares me is that I learned long ago not to install most optional updates. Video drivers usually don't work. Lan drivers usually don't work. For the lan, you have to dig out the mobo software and reinstall it. Then get on line to get video drivers. Not fun.

As far as the 8 metro screen. How is it, after all this time, no one seems to know how or even that you can shut it off. I didn't like it. I disabled it. The only thing 8 screwed up, IMO, is the start menu. Which classic start fixed. Of course, 10... removed it. So here we go again.
