    Android version for LG G2

    Thanks for the replies folks. The phone is D801 (The T-mobile version). I'm hesitant to run a custom ROM, because I'm a complete noob at mixing/matching radios and other things. I'm not going to have the slightest fucking clue what to do if I install a ROM and suddenly my wifi stops working...

    Android version for LG G2

    Just got a new G2 (D801 T-mobile version) and I've been trying to figure out what version of Android to stick to. I know that oftentimes, new OS versions work poorly on older hardware (iOS 7 on iPhone4...), so I want to avoid making a stupid update decision now. Does anyone here know the ideal...

    GoPro's CEO Is Highest Paid Executive In America

    LOL, yeah CEOs are so valuable. They deserve our respect because their crowning achievement is making millions a year. Right? Don't you see the cyclical retardedness in your thinking? In my short career I've already acquired extraordinary contempt for and disappointment in high figures in...

    GoPro's CEO Is Highest Paid Executive In America

    What an idiot. Everyone at the company earns the same now, regardless of intelligence or work ethic or crucial knowledge. At the cost of 75-80% of their yearly profits.

    I Quit: What Really Goes on at Apple

    Thanks for the post man. I'm pretty early on the engineer career path, but this isn't where I want to be headed. Already looking for another career path without politics and idiocy. You'd think at least scientists and engineers could get shit done without bickering like schoolgirls.

    Good, breathable headphones

    I don't really listen to music at high volumes, so I'll give the 598s a try. Thank you all again for all the suggestions. PS: Dan, reading your sig, it's nice to see you've come over to the dark side ;)

    Good, breathable headphones

    Thank you everyone for the many suggestions. I guess I didn't realize just how leaky open headphones are. I've got people <10 feet away from me without walls in between, so based on these responses it sounds like open cans are out (even though they're the only ones which are actually...

    Good, breathable headphones

    Hello folks, I'm looking to purchase good headphones for around $250 to use in my quiet work environment, and was wondering if anybody here might be able to help me find them. I'm not an audiophile, but I'm young and I've taken good care of my ears. I also don't care about 'gaming sound' or...

    Star Citizen SXSW Video Montage

    Game looks awesome. It's coming along and it's going to be great. As for this: Yup. Identity politics for you. Everything must cater to me and my specific racial/sexual/religious demographic or it is racist, sexist, and oppressive :p.

    Google: It's 'Irresponsible' Of Apple To Make Everything Expensive

    Revenge Porn Is Becoming a Criminal Offense in U.K.

    More faggotry from England. Is posting revenge porn an absolute dick move worthy of social shaming and contempt? Unquestionably. Do we need yet more laws expanding the grossly-distorted modern definition of "victimhood"? Absolutely not.

    EA Exec: Games Are "Too Hard to Learn"

    Look, if you can't be bothered to take a couple hours to learn some basics in a game, that is fine. You are perfectly welcome to enjoy games with no learning curve, jump into action immediately, etc, and nobody reasonable is going to look down on you for it. The idea that deep, complex games...

    Revenge Porn Website Operator Facing 20 Years

    If the pictures were taken in confidence, it is dishonorable to later upload them. That is true regardless of whatever dishonorable acts the female significant others may or may not have taken. Nobody can argue with this.

    Fassbender And Rogan As Jobs And Wosniak On Set

    Fassbender is a great actor. Rogen...not so much. Regardless, Steve Jobs doesn't deserve the slightest bit of attention, so this movie is a travesty.

    Dell Is Back

    Inspiron 8200 was a phenomenal laptop in 2002. Absolutely phenomenal. It was snappy, the CPU and graphics performance were great, and so was the screen. Loved that computer. I "upgraded" to another dell in 2006 and was disappointed at the reduction in build quality.

    Don't give two shits about broadwell. Skylake is the only hope enthusiasts have left. It's entirely possible that Sandy Bridge will go down in history as the last great architectural improvement on silicon.
