2. Re: Galaxy Note 7 replacement airplane fire might lead to second recall Oct 7, 2016, 10:42 MajorD
 

While traveling over the past several weeks, via three different airlines, each requested to turn off, not use, do not charge your phone on the plane if you have a Galaxy Note 7. So I wonder if somebody did it anyway......

Interesting history recap. He seems like a pretty cool/humble guy.

...Microsoft pouring a bunch of money/resources into another project, go to market too late (again), have 'some' potential, and then abandon it? No, it can't be.

People were making comparisons between the Band and the Zune, which seems pretty accurate - both were pretty much "me too" efforts that came way too late, but were actually pretty decent. Just nobody cared.

It's too bad really. Can't Microsoft see that is part of why they are so negatively thought upon and have very little following?

I had a ZUNE, like you said, it was pretty decent.'

Well, if Microsoft ever gets out of their own way before it is too late, they might have a chance. Their 'Surface' and cloud storage divisions are doing very well..........

Okay, so I watched the premier of WestWorld last night on HBO, and I must say I was not disappointed. I thought it was well done, and I'm ready for more. The cold storage was F'ing creepy.

Okay, for those that did watch it, did you pickup on the tribute song that was playing on the piano in the saloon when it was closing down for the night (~at the 43 minute mark)?

Well what exactly did they think another phone was going to be? It has to, ostensibly at any rate, still act as a phone, right? I mean that is its primary purpose at the end of the day, isn't it? Maybe they should have designed it as a cube, or a pyramid or something else, practicality be damned!

Yeah, I was wondering what people are expecting, a holographic video phone for the wow factor?

About damn time!

Hah! I wonder how long it will be until we do see one though.

WestWorld has to be good or else.

IMO, HBO rarely puts out a bad series, so there's hope there.

You know, it's funny. Whenever I'm downtown I see the people lined up for the food bank they're all smoking. So they can afford $15 for a pack a day but not food? Yeah. Ok.

I bet a lot of those folks are also paying $15 for a hit of smack. That's the nature of addiction: it becomes priority number one. And by many accounts, nicotine is even more addictive than heroin.

I smoked off an on for 20 years. I quit cold turkey 5 years ago and haven't smoked since. And at points when I was young and broke it was never a question of priorities. It's called willpower. Life's about choices. Sometimes I must say no to my desires in order to know I'm truly free.

It's physiologically easier to quit when you're older. And most people do, naturally. Also, not everyone can be as great a human being as a Cutter.

Everyone's body chemistry make-up is different, so some people can become more addicted than others. On that note, it is interesting how some people can live their lives majorly drinking and smoking, with poor diets and live into their 80s and 90s, and then there are some that don't drink or smoke, have a healthy diet and life style, and keel over at a much earlier age.

When our number comes up, it just comes up I guess......

What the hell, suing the users for $18 million? Is that a joke?

For negative reviews? I swear Congress just passed a law relating to retribution against negative reviews on Yelp or something, like a week or two ago. (in the US)

Yeah, I heard a snippet of that too, but can't remember the details. It's absurd!

Happy Friday all!

Okay, so my wife and I just finished plowing through the HBO miniseries 'The Night of'. All and all, we really liked it, but certain aspects of the show felt rushed, which I would guess was due to budget constraints. That's where creative editing comes in, which was well done too.

Now I anxiously await the premier of Westworld.

HHHMMMMMM.....I wonder how legit it is; 4GB more of VRAM vs vanilla 1080, higher power consumption, and lower base & boost frequencies. /shrug

I've always/still download GeForce Drivers from Nvidia w/o any login, do a custom install and choose the minimum (Graphics Driver and PhysX System Software only), uncheck the rest of the bloatware, and walla!

Regardless, it is pretty much a moot point with all the other information that is gathered by a lot of other devices/software everyone uses: Google, Apple, Microsoft (whipping boy), Creative, etc. etc.

Granted, you can be conscientious of what you're installing, settings, what you're agreeing to, etc., but living in this day and age, there is going to be data collection one way or another.

Please pass the beer nuts......

1. Re: Best CPU for gaming guide - PCGamesN Sep 14, 2016, 12:15 MajorD
 

Still running strong with my i7-2600K overclocked at 4.9Ghz. With video card upgrades, I have had no need to upgrade CPU/MB. I'll probably be able to get away with 'one more' video card upgrade (GTX-1080ti) before I'll have to upgrade my CPU/MB/Memory.
