    Amazon Sucks at Running Whole Foods

    Agreed, multiple sites and reports are that this was a cost-savings program implemented by Whole Foods to cut down on their costs and OPEX. Basically a system, which appears to be short sighted or not researched and analyzed well, to cut spoilage to near 0 at the expense of lost sales due to...

    No 2017 Bonus for You, Hewlett Packard Tells Employees

    Glad I work for HPi, which ironically is the picture that is posted. HPE doesn't use that logo fyi, theirs is the big ugly green rectangle. HPi did great this year, no idea how HPE keeps sucking.

    HP Envy Dv6 725 won't run windows 7? (buying tomorrow please help asap)

    If it's a DV series, its identical to the Win7 version. Down to the casing and wiring inside, they are 100% feature and hardware identical. Just download the Win7 DV series driver packages and install away.

    Windows XP support for _any_ socket 1150's?

    Not necessarily, sometimes its because the highly specialized equipment that requires these old OS's the makers are dead and gone, or they just don't bother supporting their hardware. An example would be a request for PCs i recently got where the client was a university and they too needed XP...

    Well to the people thinking this park has nothing to do with WoW, if you go to the reddit article this is from there is a whole bevvy of pics, and about half of the rides explicitly mention WoW/Warcraft. An example is a pic of a board talking about being a soldier of Silvermoon under the...

    Samsung To Unveil Galaxy S3 Mini On October 11?

    HTC Rezound: 4.3″ Super LCD HD (1280×720 resolution) – 342ppi Been out for almost a year. As an owner of said device, I can safely say I adore its size and find, for my small hands, that the S3 is too big for me to easily be able to reach both sides of the screen with 1 hand with...

    Labor weekend: Lenovo i7 laptop - $499 after MIR

    Just to jump in on this, in respect to photo editing all modern photo editing and RAW processing engines such as GIMP/Lightroom/NX can fully use a video card as an additional resource for the work, so having a good video card can greatly help. My sister just got one of the DV6z PCs with the A10...

    Labor weekend: Lenovo i7 laptop - $499 after MIR

    i7 and the subpar integrated graphics? What use is this, who really needs an i7 for office work, especially at the big hit to battery life that comes with it? Good price, but I don't see the point of machines like this.

    Best Verizon phone right now?

    The Rezound is a great value phone right now, 1.5ghz dual core/1gbRAM/8mp camera with a 720p NON-AMOLED screen, can be had for around 50 bucks when they go on sale. Hardware wise the S3 beats it, but if you want something that isn't so big and non-AMOLED screen the Rezound is really a nice peice...

    Pioneer Speakers!

    Well its for movies and the like, so its on a Yamaha reciever. As for the sub, yeah it whistles pretty badly if its turned up but the room its in is about 14x10 and I don't have it even at 30% as I don't like it when a sub is overpowering/shaking my room. I could afford a nicer one, but it...

    Pioneer Speakers!

    I have a surround setup of the Pioneers (41s front, 21s back and their center) and I couldn't be happier, especially as it cost about 230 bucks for the full set, throw in the Polk 10" ~100 dollar sub and it makes for a great setup.

    Audio-Technica ATH M50 vs V-Moda Crossfade LP Durability?

    The M50s take a bit of breaking in before they REALLY come alive. If they are a bit tight on your head, stretch them over the top of the box they came in and run some white/pink noise on loop for a few hours. It helped mine a ton.

    Need recommendation for a wireless gaming mouse.

    G700, its fast as heck, buttons galore and free-spinning-on-demand scroll wheel is awesome. Battery life is ok, I have a set of 4 charged eneloops in my desk drawer I swap out as needed, I don't even recharge with the cable anymore as you can get a full eneloop setup at costco for like 20 bucks.
