    "Microsoft's done their best to kill gaming on PC"

    the widespread use of linux in the wider world. the ubiquity of linux in all areas of computing other than the desktop, especially in the mobile world. so much development is cross platform and windows isn't the sole target for lots of projects now, in total contrast to 10 years ago.

    Nexus-Five thread

    Indeed, the nexus 4 is the first phone ever where I look at the next generation of phones coming after it and go "that it?" its gonna take a real leap in power demands in software to make the nexus 4 anywhere close to being out of date in terms of cpu/gpu power. There are still good reasons...

    The Desktop PC Needs A Makeover

    Wow, someone needs to get off their high horse. Not only are you completely wrong about your characterization of most users on this board, but you really do seem to misunderstand that "standard" doesnt mean the one and only option, or at least overemphasize the impact of what a new standard...

    I hope LG gets it again, I'm a huge fan of my Nexus 4, and even though i'll probably stick with it until next year, if there is a 32/64 GB option for the next Nexus phone, I'll be mighty tempted....

    Sony announces Google edition phone.

    Of the three announced, this is the best one.... Great build quality, SD card support, waterproof construction, excellent traditional modding support from Sony, and ON SCREEN BUTTONS... Like a nexus is supposed to be.... If this comes out, this will replace my nexus 4, 100%

    Google Edition phone; Samsung S4 vs HTC One

    To me, the better phone, by a landslide is the GS4... SD card support (this is major), better camera in most light, removable battery, excellent repairability, and much more durable plastic shell make the GS4 a much better buy for me. Sure, it isn't as pretty as the One, but the screen...

    T-Mobile's new pricing explained

    the real payoff comes if one buys a second hand phone off ebay or even hardforum or craigslist. wait a year, get the next best iphone, or next best android phone, and you'll be saving lots. especially now, where we are at the point where even 2 year old phones (Galaxy S2 era, and almost iphone...

    Looking for first-hand [H]-user opinions of Windows Phone 8

    How big a problem is this? I assume mobile apps are pretty small overall, and that if you do have an SD card, you'd use it to store the things that really do take up space, like MP3s, pictures, movies, etc correct me if wrong?

    Switched from AT&T to T-Mobile, some early observations.

    Wow, I dont have any problems with the service, but your post makes it tempting to get a free $20, lol.... I wont though, that would be a dick move on my part :)

    Verizon to counter T-Mobile's payment plans...sort of

    indeed, the people staying on unlimited past this november (2 years since the GNex was released) are payng for it though the loss of subsidized phone pricing though i guess if they want newer phones they can always just get second hand ones on ebay or the like

    Windows 8.1 Allow Users to Boot to Desktop?

    now they just need to add options to disable all the hot corners, and an "express setup" option during first boot that disables all the metro apps from being the default file handlers... and they'll be a long way to repairing the damage what retarded decisions by them lately...

    Switched from AT&T to T-Mobile, some early observations.

    Yikes, sorry to hear about your bad experience. Outdoors I've had nothing but an impeccable signal.... same indoors, but maybe it has to do with my building being airy and having lots of windows? Either way, TMO has been a massive step up in terms of performance and pricing for me... I...

    Switched from AT&T to T-Mobile, some early observations.

    As a recent AT&T to T-Mobile convert, I have had an excellent experience... If you, like I, spend 99% of your time in the New York metro area, the *only* recommendation from me is to drop *whatever* carrier you have and go T-Mobile (preferably to the $30 100 min/unlimited data plan). TMO's...

    iFixit gives HTC One 1/10 for repairability

    Never seen the inside of a Galaxy S3 then I take it... held together by philips head screws, no glue anywhere in sight, all pieces easy as hell to take out without the aid of anything other than the screwdriver... amazing repairability considering how light and slim it is.

    I actually run Win8 on my desktop, and it does indeed work quite well with a start menu replacement. I use start is back, which essentially hacks the windows 7 start menu into the UI, and allows the hot corners and charms bar to be disabled Even so, the metro UI and MS's retarded design...

    Windows Blue Update Leaks Out

    Someone should tell MS that so they will stop trying to push their retarded metro shit on traditional desktops and laptops.... seriously, if I'm running "WINDOWS 8", I assume the first thing that appears when I install/run a windows 8 PC and that big start screen appears are indeed the "WINDOWS...
