In theory that's great. In reality you won't get anything like this outside of business/first class. The whole more space concept does not apply to airlines who want to sardine as many people as they can in the space that they have. The reason why first class seats are that big is because when I last checked a flight… » 7/29/14 6:57pm Tuesday 6:57pm

This^^^ .. I am in an environment where our "future" is getting all geared up in a world renowned University, and yet I am met with utter stupidity on an absolutely daily basis. The other day in the campus US post office a student asked the post office attendant how to close an envelope. I can't even make this shit up. » 7/29/14 5:38pm Tuesday 5:38pm

I mean I can kind of see the point of making a study like this (though let's face it - the point is very faint). However, you stand a much, much, much higher chance of guessing their age by "normal" observation factors of their face. And if you can't see them - please do tell me what occasion might it be where you… » 7/29/14 2:09pm Tuesday 2:09pm

People and their fumbling are perplexing. Beside the obvious fact that if you're on live TV in a studio you shouldn't have that happen to you., at least men should have it super easy - just press the volume key through your pants. Every time my phone has rang in a situation I didn't want it to ring (i.e. I forgot to… » 7/29/14 3:27pm Tuesday 3:27pm

So uhhhhh .. uninstall facebook? I know it's been said many times, but how many times do you have to get screwed over by a company before you say enough is enough. I'm sure you don't need to be looking at baby photos, or "which 19th century porn star are you" quizzes on your phone. If you must have facebook for some… » 7/29/14 12:12pm Tuesday 12:12pm

Highly agree with you. As someone who's lived half my life with a European sized fridge and half my life with a n American sized fridge - all I can say is the American size is WAY better. People trying to justify small fridges instead of having big fridges are either single and truly don't have the need for more… » 7/29/14 12:05pm Tuesday 12:05pm

That's fair. Or just get more memory. "Dozens" doesn't even begin to describe my browser. I started off with having 50, then 100, then 200 .. now I think I regularly have about 250 tabs. I just find it easier that way (different strokes). My firefox with that uses about 2 gigs of ram, which is not much (unless you… » 7/25/14 1:07pm Friday 1:07pm

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 7/23/14 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 7/23/14 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. I can go to any shoe store whether it's a Big 5, or Finish Line, or Macys, or Ross, or whatever and in every one of those stores I can find shoes that fit me great in sizes ranging from 9 1/2 to 11 1/2. 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
