I thought the ponderings thread was getting a little computer-heavy, so I made this thread for general whinging about technology and the like. It sort of already exists in other threads, but that didn't stop people...

I have a laptop with windows 8 and I dislike the shitty app thing that showed when I turned it on the first time. I haven't turned it on yet, but I still need to check it out to see how shitty it is.

The pondering thread gets a little eveything-heavy when someone brings up a interesting topic.

Windows 8 is a lousy Operating System. Its supposed improved performance and claims of improved battery life are exaggerrated, Windows Store is a shameless attempt to pump people for money, and the user interface changes decrease productivity. It is a poor product created for the sake of getting money from your pockets into theirs while offering you as little value as possible. Security is not much different - most exploits and malware that work for earlier Windows versions will still work on Windows 8. One thing that might not work well on it is you, because they switched the interface around so that you have new computer skills to learn. It doesn't really matter whether you want to buy it anyway, because sooner or later it will probably be forced on you by hardware manufacturers.

It's also a thinly veiled attempt at cashing in on the tablet market while pushing desktop users aside. I bet there is much more security holes in it than ever before too. If you are forced to get it, is it possible to downgrade back to Windows 7?

nah, they're for porn and anime.

when companies try to sell their product and claims it is "hackable" why not give me a proper product instead of trusting amateurs to do the companies job.
your product is still shitty.
>> No. 44 [Edit]

That side of the product is obviously aimed at those companies to work with and hack, not for an unskilled person such as yourself.

I'm not going to argue about this, but this reminds me of when Linksys got in trouble using GPL licenced code in their WRT54 routers, so they eventually released the source code and started using it as an advertising point.

pretty much. this always crosses my mind when I see computers advertised. its never spoken about in public but I'm guessing social networking and porn are the 2 things computers are being used for the most.

The keyboards I have are such shit. The V key on this one is loose and the left ctrl & numlock on my laptop are both broken.

Why isn't there a desktop computer case that can hold the parts for two computers in it? One may be able to fabricate such a thing themselves, but I don't want to spend money doing that. That being said, I probably wouldn't buy a premade one as it'd be expensive, so there's that too. Sure would be cool though.

Because you can buy two cases?

Well there's those open cases used for benchmarking, I think they might support multiple motherboards.

I was looking, and I actually found one. Thing is, it comes at a hefty cost. Looks damn cool though.

That's fucking wicked bro. What you need too pcs in one case for though?

There are two I use regularly, so it'd be cool to put em into one, no more to it than that. Just an idea I was thinking about.

my flip phone stopped taking a charge and now i have to get a new phone and i'm afraid that i'm going to be forced into getting one of those rectangular 3dpdbook tracking devices that ntggers prefer to telephones these days when all i really want is a telephone to call people with and not a gps tracking device which uploads my position to the cloud constantly, even when i'm committing crimes. imagine being so fucking stupid that you pay the phone company hundreds of dollars a month to collect incriminating evidence against you.

i run a separate machine for my file server because i found out i don't like sharing ram and bandwith with the outside world. i capped the server's bandwith at a bit below my total capacity so it can do it's thing and it never causes me any trouble.

I am trying to read a handful of ext4 formatted drives from windows. However, since I used some specific format parameters so I could save disk space, some of the linus fs readers don't work. This one called ext2fds actually allows you to mount drives right in windows but it only works with the one partition I formatted with default parameters. Another, called DiskInternals Linux Reader, does work but only lets you browse the file sytems in their standalone program. You have to "save" files you want to copy over to use them normally. Real round about way of doing things but oh well.
