Wouldn't you know....
The warranty expired only one day before it died?
No one sees the obvious here? Android tablets will outsell everything as you can pick them up for around $50 USD. These are throwaway devices as they perform poorly but are given to kids to use instead of an expensive iPad, laptop, etc. All I see is more stupid junk devices going to the landfill.
Re: No, Liam, I won't be using a fondleslab as my primary computer.
No one has mentioned what I am using right now - the Dell XPS 12 with 4th core I7 CPU. This thing is a full blown netbook AND tablet. Much better than the surface pro I used at work. I can be very productive, and then fold the screen and do my consumption with the netbook in tablet mode all for around 3 pounds. No need for an extra keyboard, just a mouse or touch. Mouse for productivity and touch for consuming. iPad no longer gets used here except by the kids for some games. This blows the kindle away as I can have more reading area or view two pages like a real book. Backlit keyboard, instant on, etc all works fantastic. Can even boot up faster than the iPad from complete shutdown.
For US people, Costco has the FULLY decked out version for $1199 with all options and max memory. Only thing it lacks is good video as it uses the Intel 4400 for video. PC's will also never die as they make great game machines with more flexibility than the XBOX/PS4/whatever. Will be interesting to see how well the steam machines fair this Christmas. Let us be honest: with the exception of the Dell XPS 12, laptops/PC's for productivity and tablets for consuming.
The Real Story is......
Windows was identified as a virus and squashed!

Missed one. Sony no longer permitting Linux to run on the PS/3 :(

Sure you didn't mean "Whales?"

Re: Well I Like It :D
Don't forget PCI 3 express standards so upgrade the video card AND the motherboard - and then it continues from there! New CPU, new RAM, etc.
Re: good enough
Funny - the BIOS I have on the new ASUS z77 Premium allows you to disable secure boot. Ironically, the original BIOS did not even support secure boot, but when I upgraded with the latest 0 low and behold it was now on the menu. However, it was quickly disable! I suspect other manufacturers will do similar things...

You are the only one seems to get it! Stored procedures STILL can be vulnerable to SQL Injection. It is ALL about checking the input!!!!
Of course the obligatory....

@me n u - Handbrake
Get handbrake to create your MP4's - best yet, it is FREE!
I am just curious
Quite honestly, I loved the original - in multi-player only. It is way more fun to play against people (or with people) so I never played the single player version.
I cannot find a GOOD review on the multi-player version - it LOOKS like it is a blast (pun intended) but it could also be garbage. Can ANYONE please advise me if the multi-player option is as fun as the original? My point for buying games is multi-player and not stand alone...
Maybe another reason?
I would think if 70% of these are being returned, then they are doing a poor job of educating the users - unless they are being returned for other reasons and Motorola is blaming the apps and not their engineering design....
Either way, IF you identify the cause, then you should fix the root cause through education, have an app verification system, make it easier to see all apps consuming the phone, etc - or you really should not be in business. Well, with a 70% return rate, that may not be too far off!
I have had two new SSD drives fail on me from Crucial and another brand in under two months and on one of them - NOTHING was recoverable.
While I do use SSD drive in all the laptops, and have had good luck with Kingston, they are still VERY unreliable so you had BETTER have good backups.
Well you know....
Back in those days, most systems were accessed through terminals and telnet with very little security. You could use a TI1000 or TRS80 compute or Apple II or Atari 400 and still be able to hack into most computers. However, back then, most had very little security (if any at all). With call packs, you could easily war-dial with a 300 baud modem. Think about it - how much processing power do you need for TEXT???

Here is the SSD catch
There are known issues with small files and multimedia files stored on the SSD with the sandforce controller.
1) Performance degrades over time - some recommendations are to low level format the device and reload the O/S to get your speed back
2) To achieve 275 mb/s, the files must be uncompressed
3) Based upon #2, video, picture, zip, etc files will be read at 150 mb/s It also contributes to issue #1 with SSD performance degradation
4) Using a SWAP file with these will clearly shorten the life of any SSD
5) There are also issues with small files, etc.
Your best bet is the O/S on a small SSD and your data files, temp files, SWAP files location on a regular hard drive. This is currently the optimal solution. Would have liked to see Seagate to this type of comparison...
