The only reason Avast took best over something like NOD32 is because of free. If cost wasn't a factor (i.e. you could download and run NOD32 for free on as many machines as you want) there's no way in hell Avast is better than NOD32. Just saying. » 7/23/14 2:31pm Wednesday 2:31pm

"I save 85% of my income" I don't know how much you make, but unless your bills are taken care of by a trust fund, or your parents, or some other "sugar" entity, you're either in the upper echelons of income, or you have a middle class salary but live like a homeless person. » 7/23/14 12:00pm Wednesday 12:00pm

I wouldn't call it that. I actually have very little sympathy for some company (or the airport - not sure how it works) installing a few wireless access points and charging $20 for access for what will probably be only 1 or 2 hours (at least that's how long I stay at airports in general). Make the cost reasonable and… » 7/18/14 11:56am 7/18/14 11:56am

Measuring your feet yearly is just pointless.

Why? Because manufacturers do not use an accurate scale or if they do… » 7/18/14 11:48am 7/18/14 11:48am

Can't tell for certain if article is sarcasm or not. If sarcasm based on the previous article - fine. If not sarcasm - please stay away from anything more complicated than an iPhone. If a few different kinds of screws confuse you, or plugging in a small motherboard cable is beyond your capabilities you should… » 7/18/14 12:48pm 7/18/14 12:48pm

So I'm probably jaded as I've built over a thousand rigs over the last couple of decades - you make it sound so "romantic", and I look at it as "work". I guess I do get a bit more giddy when I'm building MY rigs and not rigs for the office of friends and family, but yeah .. meh ;). » 7/15/14 6:23pm 7/15/14 6:23pm

This ^ . I mean I can see how Amazon could have done this on purpose to make it so they generate more revenue, and I am all for curbing corporations from gouging/stealing/cheating consumers, BUT in this case - you're a parent - fuckin' get your shit together. Either teach your kid proper behavior and responsibility,… » 7/10/14 2:00pm 7/10/14 2:00pm
