NASA Update Will Deal With Opportunity Flash Memory "Amnesia"

Redbehrend Re:Flash memory sucks (52 comments)

I run SSD's on all my computers and never had one fail yet and when one does, it takes less than 10 min to get a new one up and running. (Already tested my restore plan with my backups) In the meantime I enjoy the awesome performance and get back my 10 min and money in x1000 from the time it saves lol.
Most of the ones that fail are the cheap clearance, no name ones, the good Samsung and Intel ones are developing a great track record.

But on topic, the rovers are all custom and it's been 10+ years, i believe they already know about this flaw now and they have found ways around it with newer flash memory.

Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?

Redbehrend Re:Never had such issues (325 comments)

I wouldn't recommend the apple i7's they are having the same issues and running hot, I had a friend's burn up in the first year of owning it and all it did was sit on a cool glass desk which is prime for a laptop. From the reviews they seem to run on the line of hot and too hot.

Is Kitkat Killing Lollipop Uptake?

Redbehrend Re:Manufacturers (437 comments)


You have to wait for manufacturers to put their bloatware into it
Then you have to wait for the carrier to add more bloatware
Then 6 months later you get the now outdated update....
I switched to custom roms long ago, I get the update within 24 hours of Google releasing the source.
Moral of the story, phones and android would have a lot better rep if they took out all the bloatware. That's why Google's been changing rules in order to fix this problem. 9 out of 10 times your waiting for the manufacture or carrier for the update.

Is Kitkat Killing Lollipop Uptake?

Redbehrend Re:I probably would upgrade if I could, but... (437 comments)

Most people are not using Lollipop because it's not available yet FROM CARRIERS! Lots of people are running the unofficial roms though. My friends that have Verizon s5's haven't gotten any kind of update notification yet.... My family members that use the latest AT&T phones haven't yet either so talking percentages when the carriers are holding back the roll out is dumb IMO.

I have been on it since the source was released and it doesn't have all the fancy moded in tricks yet but it's looking very promising, I love that it includes tasks I had to use tasker for before lollipop and that my battery lasts longer. IMO the biggest problem with it hasn't been the OS but lazy app companies not updating their apps to be compatible for lollipop soon as it became "official" they should be updating their apps. t's funny how the small teams with crazy complex apps already updated yet the muli-million / billion dollar companies still haven't.

How Long Will It Take Streaming To Dominate the Music Business?

Redbehrend Re: No thanks (169 comments)

+1 I love play radio and streaming, I still buy music through the play store to support the artists I love.
I still sub spotify sometimes for 5 bucks and I tried apple radio and it was a joke IMO. People might be like 2 services are you crazy.. Right cuz 10 dollars for a full month of any song I want is really expensive you probably spend more on fast food lol.

Three-Way Comparison Shows PCs Slaying Consoles In Dragon Age Inquisition

Redbehrend Re: $500 per card or per household? (227 comments)

I bought a ATI 5770 several years ago for 125 and gave it to a friend and it still plays games on high lol. Video cards even have upgradeable firmware now. They have console controllers for the pc, only time I ever owned a console was when they had really good console only games.

Android 5.0 'Lollipop' vs. iOS 8: More Similar Than Ever

Redbehrend Re: It's all about the haters (178 comments)

Android is cheaper hardware and app wise... Android can do 100s of things that ios can't. If gives you more freedom, options, carriers and companies. I had apple for years and I don't miss it at all. Can I afford apple? Yes I just choose not to overpay.... I understend why people like apple cut its trendy with the tech impaired. Just like living with the Kardashians....

AT&T To "Pause" Gigabit Internet Rollout Until Net Neutrality Is Settled

Redbehrend Re: if only (308 comments)

Att has been great in orange county, Ca. We were stuck with Cox for so long with the old big crappy boxes that die every 6 months and lose your recordings. They also give you more bang for buck because they are half the price. I'm no fanboy as I'm waiting for Google fiber but anything is better than these old school ripoff isp companies. Cox doesn't even have good Internet anymore it's always partly down for maintenance. You have to pick the lesser of two evils right now....
