Re: iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Note 4 Sales: South Korea a win for Apple | BGR - http://bgr.com/2014...
"To have tears, I would actually have to care about this site. Care to argue over the better machine, the 68xxx/PowerMachine Mac or an X86 PC? A little late. Because the X86 PC won. Boy Genius Report. Boy, certainly. Not seeing too much on the other two words, however." - Bryan Price

bytehead on ELI5: Why did the dial-up sound have to be played out loud? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The sounds were never necessary to be heard by humans. Of course, the modems needed to hear each other. Although it did let us hear to make sure things were going like they should, nobody else was on the line, the other side was actually answering, the phone bill had been paid, that sort of thing. It was a modem option to either completely shut it up, on only during the connection part, or on all the time. I used it on during the connection with dial out because I wanted to know if my computer was dialing. Yes, I had a schedule to automatically dial my ISP and download my email every morning. And left it connected for me so I could go through my email after I was showered. When I was running a BBS, all calls into the modem were silent. I really didn't need to know that somebody was on my computer. And it wasn't a busy BBS, so I never really had to wait long for the person calling in to get control of my computer back. A friend of mine who had been running a BBS longer than I had (and..." - Bryan Price

Re: iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Note 4 Sales: South Korea a win for Apple | BGR - http://bgr.com/2014...
"My first visit to the site, and I'm seeing trash articles like this. Way to go. You are conflating the iPhone 6 AND iPhone 6 Plus as if they are one model (they aren't), and comparing them to one of Samsung's models. That isn't journalistic integrity, it's not even journalistic anything, it's just a hack job. Maybe, just maybe, it might be something to talk about if the numbers were JUST the iPhone 6 Plus versus the Note 4. Remember, Samsung has had a phablet out there for quite awhile. Hence that 4 designation at the end of the name. Apple has been showing signs of pent up demand for a larger phone for some time now. And with the popularity of the iPhone, it's not surprising that the 6 Plus, let alone the 6, would sell well. There is also the question of the Note Edge, which still isn't out, with not much detail on what the cost difference between the Edge and the 4 is, or even the availability of the Edge when it does come out. Getting my hands on an Edge is the only reason why I..." - Bryan Price

Re: Windows 10 Tech Preview gets its first big update: One-click upgrade is awesome - http://www.extremetech.com/computi...
"Well, I've tried it twice. Weirdness when it comes back up and I log in. Wireless is gone. Trying to do anything with the network (even plugging in the wire...), and it takes a long time for it to error out. Second time, it said that I needed to reactivate my copy. Clicking on Online activate, or input key, neither one wanted to work. Trying to run Procexp and set some options failed, and my Moo0 system monitor (which WAS working) kept failing with an error about the device (C: drive I'm assuming...) Rebooting decidedly reset my system back, both times with the windows error c1900101 30018. Which is a known error for upgrading to 8.1 after Googling it. Evidently, I need to disable my networking? But it downloads and then updates all by itself, so how can I disable the networking. At least now it supports my native monitor resolution. RDP was fine. But using the laptop itself was a bit funky without the native monitor resolution. So, maybe the next update I'll get working. :/" - Bryan Price

Re: The Top 10 Smartphones - http://www.pcmag.com/article...
"I had an original Note. A buddy of mine has the Note 3 as well. He is also looking at upgrading. The thing about the Note 4 and Edge for me is the QHD screen. I'm also attracted to the optical stabilization in the camera. My current phone is a Moto G, pre LTE. Didn't think I'd miss that too much. I was wrong. Plus, no expandable storage, no replaceable battery. But it works, and I can afford to wait a month or two." - Bryan Price

"I don't have to get a phone right now. So, I'm waiting to see what the Note 4 is like. The Note Edge also is on my radar, but limited availability has me both intrigued and put off. I want one in my hand, to make sure that gripping it doesn't do things on that side screen. And just how premium that device will be over the Note 4 is another question that will affect my decision." - Bryan Price

"I'm running the Windows version Nightly, currently 35.0A1. Both 32-bit and 64-bit. Neither one of them has the option to change shortcuts from within Firefox. I suspect that there is an extension that does that for them, which is why they aren't seeing it on the Mac version." - Bryan Price

"I went and saw it Thursday. Scientifically accurate? No way! A nice time to turn off my brain and enjoy the sight of Scarlett and hearing Morgan speak, and a damn fine chase scene, along with a few other nice visuals, you got it! Certainly what I needed. Yeah, character development could have been a little bit better, but the pace of the movie made that a bit impractical. I enjoyed it." - Bryan Price

Re: Linux is the quiet revolution that will leave Microsoft eating dust - http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
"I didn't say install. I said BOOT to install. Yes, it took many floppies to actually install both Windows (1.0 and up) and Linux. And I'm curious as to just who is insisting that Microsoft is the only thing that can run computing? It certainly did not come from my mouth/typing. I really don't play the Operating System as Religion game. I have certain software that I need or want to run. It requires an operating system, and in my case, it requires Windows. For others, that might mean OS X. For others, they might have the choice of running anything, Windows, OS X, or Linux. If you have any choice, then you probably are going to go with what you already know. That's not the worst that you could do. Desktops aren't dead yet. Yeah, people aren't buying them like they used to, but then, they aren't replacing them because some new technology came out or some great speed improvement. My latest desktop compared to the old desktop has faster memory, USB 3.0 instead of 2.0, and a slightly faster..." - Bryan Price

"It certainly is Unix like enough, isn't it? Even the Wikipedia article says such about it. And yes, MINIX is a version of Unix, which again, surprise! Wikipedia says such about it. I've been using computers for longer than you've ever been on this earth. Unix, Xenix, TRS-Xenix, Linux (yes, it's Linux Is Not UniX, a recursive acronym har, har, har...), AIX. How many of those have you booted on your equipment?" - Bryan Price

Re: Linux is the quiet revolution that will leave Microsoft eating dust - http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
"Well, what is Linux but a version of Unix. Which has been around for how long now? Now, what I'm talking about here are the client machines, what people use, not the servers. The calling of the destruction of Windows has been going on for decades. Yes, decades. I remember booting Linux way back when, it took three diskettes to do so. We're talking about the Windows 95 era. When starting to install Windows 95 was one diskette (MS-DOS). And back then there was talk about how either Apple's OS (running on 68000 hardware) or Linux running on whatever hardware was going to take over the Windows market. We're still talking about that twenty years later. Will Windows finally falter at some future time and get replaced? I have no doubt. Will it be today's version of either OS X or Linux? Absolutely not. Part of the issue is that desktops and even laptops are going to become a lesser percentage of client machines. You've got your phones and tablets. That's part of that trend, although I don't..." - Bryan Price

"I think WB will be the ones to change the date. Marvel had already stated that they planned on releasing a movie on that date. Yeah, it was unnamed, but still, if WB really decides to go head to head with Captain America, I think WB will lose. I certainly am not that interested in Batman VS Superman. Bale isn't coming back for Batman, and I wasn't that impressed with Man of Steel. Marvel is pulling off fresh stuff. DC and WB, not so much." - Bryan Price

Re: Samsung Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile) - http://www.pcmag.com/article...
"Nit picking. The Note series did NOT have the faux leather plastic back cover. Only the Note 3. As a (former, I lost it) original Note owner, that one certainly only had the regular plastic cover. I will be replacing my Moto G (replacement for the Note, because it/I was CHEAP!) this summer, probably with the Note 3, but I will have a good look at the S5 and compare the two. This issues I see for me with the S5. I'm not interested in the fitness apps. They went to 3GB of RAM on the Note 3, but they stayed with 2GB of ram on the S5. I'm not really interested in a wrist device, let alone the latest and greatest. None of those issues are terminal." - Bryan Price
