She gave a 30 minute talk during my division's all-hands meeting last year, and it was incredibly boring. Basically her, on stage, reminiscing with our department's SVP about their careers. It was like listening to to two people talk about the vacation you didn't go on and couldn't care less about.
My AMD 6870 appears to have died on me, and I'm looking for a replacement around $300. I haven't been paying much attention to the video card market over the last several years, so I'm now a little lost on what my best options are. I have seen very few video card related [H]otdeals or Slickdeals...
Several years ago a coworker of mine, who did contract work for Southwest Airlines, mentioned that they had an old Sun box with an uptime of something like 13 years, running some horribly outdated version of SunOS. The box was critical to some sort of functionality within Southwest, and any...
Seriously guys, this was in east Texas, land of the patent trolls.
Any time you see a story about a patent lawsuit that includes the word "Tyler" or "east Texas", you should turn your skepticism dial to 11.
New chipset without native USB 3.0 or PCI 3.0? New SSD line without SATA 6 Gb/s? WTH, Intel?
Am I mistaken that leaks like this usually come from Chinese or other south-east Asian websites? It really seems like a disproportionate number of leaks relating to road maps, engineering sample...
Currently waiting on my GD05B to arrive in the mail, so thank you for the link to the review. I was more or less shooting in the dark when I picked it, so it is reassuring to see the series has a good reputation.
I would imagine you could simply change the extension to .mp3 and it would work. Just dont try to play it.
Does anyone know what the normal cost for this is? ~$0.50 for a year is nice, but I'd like to know what the year over year cost would be, and I'm having trouble finding that.
Now, before your knee jerks and you stub your toe, I'm well aware that the general consensus is that an HTPC and NAS should be in their own disparate systems. I understand (generally) the arguments against doing it, however I feel that in my circumstance combining the two into a single system...
I'm thinking about getting one or two of these for a NAS setup. Does anyone happen to know if there are any 'tricks' involved with this particular drive? For instance, do jumpers need to be set, or does it need to be configured with windows only proprietary software to be usable?
I did some...
It seems to me that, after blowing the dust off of my memories of FET architecture, this 'solution' would cause significantly more problems than it would solve.
I'd imagine it would require a significant change to things like chip fabrication, read/write algorithms, OS operations, etc...
Maybe I'm missing something, but it would appear to be cheaper to have this shipped (for free) from the Egg at $175 than to buy it at my local Fry's and pay the sales tax.
Got an email from the Egg, advertising their double shellshocker for today.
Q6600, Retail, for $169.99 with free shipping. Note that the sale is from 3:00 PM PST to midnight, for today only.
Love me some Chrome, and I'll welcome the add-ons.
The one thing I really wish I had was the ability to add options to the right click menu. For instance right now if I highlight some text and right click it, there is an option to "Search google for '<text>'". That is incredibly useful, but...
I've had a couple Raidmax cases in the past, and they were all quite horrible. Poorly designed and poorly built, quite the disappointment, really.
Have things changed and now Raidmax makes descent cases?
Fry's B&M has the EVGA GTX 260 graphics card for $189.99 with a $30 MIR. This is from the Dallas area Fry's add, but likely exists in other markets.
I ordered this morning expecting to get an apologetic email saying they didn't have any in stock. Instead I just got an email saying my proc just shipped. :)
I went to put this on slickdeals, and it looks like one of you SOB's beat me to the punch ;)
OEM Q6700 for $149.99 + $5.99 standard shipping + tax (in some states). Not available for in-store pickup.
This is hot to me because I have a 975 MOBO that wont accept any quad other than a Kentsfield. I was...
I've wondering this for years: what does MicroCenter mean when they list some parts as being "Private Label"? How is a "Private Label Intel-based" MOBO different from an "Intel-based MOBO"? They are the only e-tailer I've seen list computers parts that way.
