    Replacement for Winamp?

    This is what I have been using. My MP3 library is pretty big and it handles it just fine. Not perfect but works very well. This was my Musicmatch replacement a while back because it converts and tags stuff nicely.

    Looking for suggestions on my HTPC build

    I built a new HTPC to replace my old 775 system that I did have. I am looking to do more than just stream movies from my main box and replace the PS3. I still use it for Netflix, Hulu, and also stream movies from my media server. I have a nice HT setup with an Onkyo receiver, 5.1 surround...

    I'm down for this. If I buy a $600 device, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Maybe cell phone bills will start to come out of the sky too....

    omg what happened to the memory prices ?

    Heh. I guess I bought memory at the right time then. I guess my other computers are sticking with 8 and 4GB kits... I'm glad hard drives finally came down because I was running out of space quick.

    Apple Sued Over iPhone iOS7 Upgrade

    Heh... I upgraded my iPhone 4S to IOS7 and ended up selling it a few weeks later. It turned a perfectly good phone into a slow pile of crap. I left my iPad 3 with IOS6 and have no desire to upgrade (ruin) it.

    Apple Drastically Cut Its iPhone Orders For Next Quarter

    Same here. Up until a few weeks ago, I was still using an Inspire 4g that I gave hell and it still worked great until I dropped it in the lake. I got the new One X+ because of the amount of storage on it and because the camera took some pretty amazing pictures. There are phones with better...

    i386 Finally Gone the Way of the Dodo

    First computer I had was a 486sx that my dad bought for me. It had 8MB RAM and a 1GB hard drive (what was consumed with bad sectors unlike anything I have yet to see to this day). It ran Doom perfectly. We bought it used and it crashed within a year. I started out using 386's and old Macs...

    Average Wireless Bill Increased 7% in 2012

    After having Sprint for 11 years and having nothing but problems with their service coverage for the last 2, I decided to go to AT&T. I pay $10-15 (Sprint was $130 per month) more per month and have 6GB shared between two phones and could not be happier. My wife and I do not use more than...

    Anyone own multiple smartphones?

    AT&T Cutting Returns and Service Cancellation Period

    Sprint did the same thing a couple years back. I can honestly say I am not surprised tat AT&T followed suit but I am surprised it took AT&T this long to change it to 14 days. I normally know within a week if I do not like something and I'll return it anyway. Side note: Sprint can...

    Watchdog Calls eBay's User Policy 'Underhanded'

    Or you can stop using eBay altogether... After being ripped off from buying and selling, I no longer use eBay or Paypal. There are plenty of alternatives that offer better service/sales without the bullshit associated with eBay.

    iPhone And Apple Jumped The Shark

    That's because a lot of people expect nothing but the best from Apple. Apple also put themselves in that position as well with a lot of their ads, key notes, law suits, and the products themselves. Not to mention the amount of people that buy their devices simply because it's an Apple device...
