How To Beat Online Price Discrimination

Lehk228 Re:Steering? (145 comments)

My best way is to use the local grocery store that doesn't have a card.

if you want to save money on groceries just shop at Aldi's if there is one near you (there probably is if you live in the eastern US). cheaper than walmart by at least 25% and no shopping card needed.

just make sure to bring a quarter for the cart unlocker and throw a few reusable bags in your car or scavenge any empty carboard trays off the shelves because they don't bag and you have to buy bags if you want them (6 cents no biggie)

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

Lehk228 Re:Ugh - The "classic" control panel is the best. (345 comments)

stop finding, just type, the top right search bar from the control panel will find just about anything by name or description, just like the new start menu (winkey then type what you want)

as far as i am concerned win 7 is the pinnacle of the MS windows UI. I used 8 "metro"/"modern" once it was such utter shit i will never use it, steam OS is close enough I will switch to linux full time and only buy steam games that work on linux or wine.

Despite Patent Settlement, Apple Pulls Bose Merchandise From Its Stores

Lehk228 Re:One crap audio brand battling with another (328 comments)

I am american, I would balk at spending $230 on headphones, right now I am using a $30 logitech USB headset, and to me that was pricey for headphones, but worth it because being USB it gets it's own sound device when plugged in and I can route certain sources to headphones while others still go to the speakers.

that's still the law, if you read your source you would see that the HIPAA violation was the offense for other types of suit, such as a privacy violation.
