How One School District Handled Rolling Out 20,000 iPads

Osgeld Re:Love computers but where is the strategy? (201 comments)

computers in school are the same thing as they always have been, a showpiece, not to be touched, sitting there rotting, mostly unused. So bring in the tablets every kid gets to interact with a magical computer ... which is so simplified at this point someone who has never seen a computer could operate it, and the result, they use the shit out of them, but not for school.

its youtube,facebook,twitter, snapchat, video chatting, and porn, everything but learing, clap clap, not only have you made them stupider, but more entitled to neglect responsibility as well.

States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

Osgeld Re:10.10 per hour (745 comments)

at what point do we feel bad for these people, if your working two minimum wage jobs to support a family then they are obviously a fuckup to begin with and should not be rewarded for it, if they are rewarded for it what it the incentive to improve themselves or position in life, even if that improvement is going from burger flipper to night manager?

AMD FirePro W9100 16GB Workstation GPU Put To the Test

Osgeld Too bad they forgot how to make a cpu (42 comments)

As I sit here at my power hungery, but yet fairly slow FX4170 budgeting out a new i7 machine, I have to wonder if they noticed the very large pile of old video chipsetmakers sitting out in the street?

the R series are not that impressive, hell a few of them are outran by their own cheaper older cards, workstation cards are a niche market, even most 3d cad tools like solid works runs reasonably on a integrated intel.

It makes me wonder what they are thinking, there was a time where AMD made a huge variaty of intergrated chips, not anymore. There was a time when AMD was locked in mortal combat with intel, not any more, but hey check out this 3,300$ video card we might sell a dozen of!!!

good luck buddies

Avast Buys 20 Used Phones, Recovers 40,000 Deleted Photos

Osgeld here's my deal (231 comments)

since I am not a crack addict and have to buy a new phone every 14 months, and usually the phone I buy is the cheapest I can get without contract (which actually gets you some decent android's now days) by the time I am ready to get a new phone, its not worth the time to even post on ebay, toss that shit in the wood chipper (minus battery), keep in mind the last phone I tossed was a 2005 windows phone model (I have newer phones but keep them as backups)

phone junkies are almost as bad as crack addicts, who cares if their precious images of orlando ends up on 4chan, their tits will anyway
