Re: Memory vs Processor
"The new norm should be SSD."
Agreed after seeing first hand how upgrading to a SSD in this core i5 laptop has really boosted the running of the operating system.
But I can't reccomend the WD Black2 Dual Drive which is the one I installed, 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD in one package sounds good in theory but how they got both to work simultaneously through a single SATA connection is nothing short of a kludge which requires special software to activate the 1TB HDD after you've installed the OS on the 128GB SSD. The system effectively sees a single drive split into two partitions, meaning things can get tricky if you have to reformat the drive to replace the OS.
Yet that's not the worst of it because at random intervals the drive light goes on for a full minute or two, completely locking up the laptop for that time, I've lost no data but it's an issue that has plagued users and WD know about it but they haven't made a firmware fix, it mostly happens if I'm transferring many gigabytes to/from it but can strike at any time.
You've just given me a business idea, re-package those joke glasses with a new label:
"ANTI SURVEILLANCE TECH"
I keep my 128GB USB3 sticks in metal airtight capsules to make sure they're not damaged during transit/storage, for a 2.5" 15TB drive I think I'd want of those large reinforced flight cases which has its own wheels to feel the drive is safe.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Actually, exactly how many kidneys will I have to sell to get just one of them?
Yes, exactly, I don't understand why Time decided to show everyone what the Oculus looks like when you're observing someone using it, instead of an illustration of what the experience of using the Oculus is like.

Look everyone, it's one of those people who engage mouth before brain.
I bet like too many other numbskulls you never saw the whole interview and are just taking that single line he said completely out of context.

Now they're on Amazon, perhaps Clarkson should change his tradmarked "POWERRR!" cry to "BANDWIDTH!"
Re: Unlucky if you live in one of these areas
Must be really bad if they mention Glasgow, Bristol and Manchester twice for maintenance work on the 28th.

Windows search was 'adequate' on XP, I hate the Win7 version and haven't tried 8, but very very glad I discovered the free Windows search tool Everything which indexes NTFS attached drives very quickly and displays realtime search results as you type, with regular expression capability for even more refined results.
It's all very nice giving them their own little road network to play on but what happens when the cars learn of the huge road network outside of the gates?
Going by the whole fruit association thing, does this mean the people inside will be referred to as 'Worms'?
"I overtook this Apple Car the other day on the freeway, it sure wiped the smug look off the face of the worm inside!"
How will you know if someone has an Apple Car?
They'll beep at you.
FFS it was a JOKE, no need to be such a pedantic dick about it.
That's quite a lot of money for a basic green screen setup...

Has anyone got a poppadom the size of lake Michigan? This stuff's really good.
/typed from memory despite not seeing that episode for years :)
"Sir hadn't you better buckle up?" "Ah, buckle this! LUDICROUS SPEED! *GO!*"
My 9 year old godson is a Star Wars fan courtesy of his dad, he'd never seen Spaceballs before so we all sat down to watch it one night, until he piped up about 1/3 the way through that he coouldn't handle it anymore because he found it just too weird!
I still have a working email address from an ISP I was kicked off over 8 years ago!
Won't say which one in case they hear of this and close it down :)
(they kicked me off for over-usage of a package with 'unlimited' in the title...)
"As long as you're in the country where you bought Microsoft Wi-Fi"
"You can't save time for later."

That desktop wallpaper looks...ominous
Like part of a poster design for a supernatural horror film.

A 'vegan'? Is that someone who's from Vegas?
Technological advances are generally a positive thing, until something like this comes along and you have to stand up and say stop already, technology shouldn't be so pervasive.
Isn't 4G particularly vulnerable to jamming?
Criminals could have a field day with a bunch of cheap Chinese import jammers bought over the internet with practically no traceability, knowing the police would be commincationless even if they tried to use their normal mobile phones.
KFC in China ?
If the internet rumours are true that Chinese eay anything, how can we be absolutely sure it's even chicken, mutant or not, they're serving over there?
Futuristic Home Owner's Diary from about 20 years ago, doesn't seem too far from today's futuristic home predictions just without wifi, and replace the Usenet reference with Facebook & Bittorrent.
The only makes of car I can think of which you can fit in your pocket aren't involved in the mobile industry, you know the ones, Matchbox, Hot Wheels, Corgi, Dinky...
Apple will love this!
It'll give them the ability to legitimately state they can't replace the battery so you'll have to buy a new one.
