    Laptop Batteries ... Not Charging ... Creators Update

    My HP x360 Spectre stopped charging a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, that also makes it not usable plugged in once the battery is dead. I found conflicting info, but a new battery fixed my case. It was 2 1/2 years old. Along the way, I noticed the new setting in the Windows 10 Creators...

    Best Cellphones for Remote Areas?

    I've been trying to find information about which phones have the best data transfer/call ability in remote areas irrespective of carrier. I've found spotty information that says Note 5 is better than Note 8, for instance. I've also found a couple of posts in other forums that imply Samsung S7...

    Any 4P News for Folding?

    I'm just wondering if there is any news about 4P folding that I couldn't find. Nearest I can tell is that there are few people talking about 4Ps, so I guess most aren't using them. In any case, any sources for new information would be appreciated. Mine have been good folders, so I don't need...

    What's your strategy for 4ps that are/were folding?

    I finally handled an iPhone 6 plus and iPhone 6

    I finally handled an iPhone 6 plus, and the one review that said it it was out of balance seems to be right. The iPhone 6 seems much easier to hold. I only had the 6 plus in my hand for a few minutes and almost dropped it a few times. So, if you have a iPhone 6 plus, have you dropped it...

    How much do you use your stylus or s pen?

    How much do you use your stylus or s pen? My contract is up soon and I'm considering a larger phone. I'm considering the Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 6, Galaxy S5, and iPhone 6 and 6+. I've had a few friends demo their Note 3s, and they seem to leave out the stylus use. I think that might mean...

    Best PPD for gaming GPU?

    I'm assuming nvidia still has an advantage for ppd for GPUs. What models should I consider that are very good for folding and also very good gaming cards for 1920x1200.

    Anyone having problems running 6200 procs?

    Anyone having problems running 6200 procs? I've had two motherboards (one 2P Asus, one 4P Supermicro) fail running 6272s. The only thing in common has been the ram and 2 6272s. In other words, different OS (Ubuntu, Windows Server 2008 R2), different powersupplies, cases, drives, etc. The...
