    Work/Home Laptop

    What are you waiting for? Buy it! :) I suspect that many people are going to trash talk Lenovo for the whole superfish crap that they pulled which i can sympathize with, but their business line of laptops are Da Bomb. I own the T450s and couldn't be happier. It is the best laptop that I have...

    Obedience School Sues Yelper For $65K Over Negative Review

    You must not have read the article, because she did NOT receive a refund. From the article: “In a nutshell, the services delivered were not as advertised and the owner refused a refund,” she wrote in her Yelp review, which has since been removed from the site. This is definately bullcrap...

    It seems Lenovo installs malware on their PCs (in purpose)

    i got the 1080 display (w/o the touch option) and the screens great (great viewing angles). as for the discreet gpu: meh, i don't plan on gaming on it. I'll listen to some music, movie/video watching (netflix, amazon and local content), work (i'll use it for when i'm on-call and out of the...

    Texting Woman Walks Into Path Of Train

    it's actually good that she survived, but bad that she didn't get more seriously injured. i was hoping that she would be seriously injured and she could be a message to all the other idiots that text while either walking (w/o paying attention) or driving.

    It seems Lenovo installs malware on their PCs (in purpose)

    You can, but it's been my experience that some computer manufacturers provide multiple peripherals/parts/components variations for a given model. example: the onboard ethernet and wifi might either be an intel or broadcom. the touchpad could be either a synaptic or eltech. etc... my...

    It seems Lenovo installs malware on their PCs (in purpose)

    I would boot the laptop at least once and take a screenshot of device manager. It'll make your job hunting for device drivers a little bit easier.

    Corsair K70 Reviews on Amazon

    I'd like to chime in that I just picked up the K70. I like it so far, but I'm concerned about the LEDS for the capslock, numlock and scroll lock not liting up. I have this KB connected to my linux computer. Everything seems to be working (as can be expected since this kb isn't officially...

    Lenovo Slapped With Lawsuit Over Superfish

    sigh... i'm kind of caught in a pickle here. I have always liked (maybe even loved) the build quality of the thinkpad laptops so I have a new Lenovo laptop on order. Right now, I'm not sure how I feel about this situation. I saw the list of laptops that lenovo preloaded the superfish...

    soundcard for linux

    I have recently made the switch to Linux and now need a new soundcard. I still have the Asus Phoebus installed, but there's currently no support/drivers for it in Linux. As such, I'd like to get a new soundcard that will work in Linux and has a seperate headphone/control pod. (at the moment...

    New Steam Early Access Guidelines

    I've never been a fan of the early access stuff. If I truly believe in the developer and want them to succeed/finish, I might offer a donation but I wouldn't want to actually try the game until it's done. My idea is that you can really only play a game so many times before you're bored with...

    Is there a prepaid carrier with wifi calling?

    yep. Wifi calling will never be available on a unlocked/pure-aosp phone. the best and/or closest that you can get is by using google-voice with via hangouts (install the hangouts dials from the playstore)
