I'm no hosting/cloud service provider. I have a pretty solid rig outfitted with a boot SSD, 6 Mechanical drives, and a BluRay burner.

I bought six of the 4TB Seagates when they first came out and all but one had died by the fall of last year. I replaced the 4Tb Seagates with 8GB HGSTs the first day I could, and all have been working fine since installation. (though I did have a problem getting one of the HGST drives recognized by the OS (Win 8.1 Pro x64)

You make videos of your commute to work??

I do. I use a $39 dashcam that I bought on Amazon. If I am in an accident, and it is the other driver's fault, I will have a record of exactly what happened. If it is my fault, I can quickly detach the camera from my windshield and hide it in the glove compartment.

The 2nd day of using the GearPro, I almost ran into someone because I wasn't paying attention to the road because I was fiddling with my camera like a moron.

Fixed that for you.

The 2nd day of posting on /. I spelled, "Go", incorrectly because I was more concerned with posting as AC than looking at my fucking keyboard. Moron.

Fixed that for you.

Submission + - App Compatibility with older tablets? 1

mandark1967 writes: Just wondering how many of you are experiencing application compatibility problems on older tablets. I use a 2nd gen version of the Asus Transformer (TF-701) mainly for reading, music, some light surfing. It's one of the more recognizable/established tablet makers so I thought I would upgrade the apps to newer versions since they supposedly have more/better features.

The latest versions of the Kindle and Google Books apps work "oddly" on my tablet. In Google Play Books, half the pages in a book fail to show up until I remove the download, re-download it, then scroll back and forth through the pages. The newer version of Kindle crash more often than I can count and half the links on the Kindle store just flat out don't work. I would like to use the newer versions but don't want to spring $600 for a new tablet. Thoughts?
