BIG trouble in BIG China: Cisco shares fall off a cliff as CEO warns of slump

Kurt 4

The only thing good about cisco is meraki. They've already started jacking up meraki's prices lets hope they don't totally destroy them.

Couldn't agree more. Also, Why the F*** do I need a google+ account to leave a review on an android app? That's just one of the reasons I dropped android and couldn't be happier.

T-Mobile US brags of cash pile this quarter as biz gambles pay off

TMO rocks.

1. No contracts

2. Phone cost separated from plan

3. WiFi Calling

4. Free International data and voice just 20cents

I'm planning to switch our entire company over from crappy AT&P ©

Thai PM's site defaced with smutty abuse

I've been to Thailand several times and it seems like they have more freedom than USA. Maybe you're getting monarchy confused with government. PM is not monarchy.

Google not sabotaging YouTube on Windows Phone after all

Kurt 4
Thumb Up

The new app works great. Just got done pinning a channel to my start screen (try not to be jealous android users).

WP8 already had a couple really good youtube apps, MetroTube and MyTube. The free option by Microsoft is great though.

Nokia shareholder tells CEO Elop he's going to hell

Kurt 4
Thumb Up

My Nokia Lumia 920 is amazing and that's saying a lot since I was previously an android fan. I don't think it would of made much difference if they relased an android 920. It would be like the Samsung ativ s windows phone, most people I talk to have never heard of it or seen it.

T-Mobile US announces 'no BS' rate plans, iPhones, LTE

Kurt 4

Re: "few who can do basic maths"

Yeah. People are clueless. I bought a lumia 920 unlocked for 680 and and signed up with tmobile no contract plan here in the US. When I tell people, they think I'm nuts. But then I ask how much they paid for their phone and how much they pay a month and I'm saving around $800 in a two year period. Not bad at all.

Contracts are awful, it locks people in, takes away their freedom to leave, and they end up spending more in the long run. It only looks good on the surface.

Samsung's new co-CEO: 'Windows isn't selling very well'

Kurt 4
Flame

Dear Samsung,

Nokia and HTC were smart enough to design new phones specifically for WP8. Most people don't care for a galaxy s III with windows installed. There were some users that may have bought your s III with Windows but you failed to release it here in USA. How do you expect to sell any when we can't buy it?

Regards,

Customer

Review: Google Nexus 4

Kurt 4
Boffin

I'm lucky enough to have both a nexus 4 and a Lumia 920. I much prefer the 920, even though the OS is new, it seems more polished and feels more professional. Android seems like a kids toy, no wonder it's so cheap.

Ah but Apple does have a monopoly in tablets where the hell is the ipad browser choice screen? This is all such BS. People already have a choice on Windows, they can install what ever browser they want. How hard is it really.

Store them in MS Skydrive, you can share the folder with your family members. Then the pics will be on your computer, skydrive, and the user's computers that you shared it with. Don't forget to make a backup.

On Windows 7, I have icons, folders and widgets. On Android I have icons, folders, and widgets. On WP8 all I get is tiles? I guess I'll stick with android so I can continue my windows 7 experience.

Skype throws off Nimbuzz in ad-revenue smackdown

Kurt 4
WTF?

Jerks

I hate skype now. They ticked me off when the blocked Fring then I discovered Nimbuzz and now it's not possible to make skype out calls on Android unless your on wifi or have verizon. FringOUT is cheaper than skype anyway. I Just added 10$ credit and will try it out. Fring needs to make a windows app and then people will start making the switch.

Didn't Obama just create jobs?

That's funny then why did Obama say this on October 31 in his weekly address.

"it is clear that the Recovery Act has now created and saved more than one million jobs."

What a bleeping liar!!! The only thing that's clear is that this administration is complete BS.

RDX drives are a rip off

RDX drives are such a rip off. It's probably because they have zero competition. It's either RDX or off the shelf consumer usb drives. When is another manufacturer going to step up and make something to compete with RDX?
