Ask Slashdot: What Review Sites Do You Consult For IT Equipment?
But now I just stick to Amazon.com, NewEgg.com and the like to see the reviews. Once Tom's Hardware traded hands way back when it followed the rest of the industry of just regurgitating vendor claims and I quit reading it, maybe I should check it out and see if it's improved.
Amazon Kindle Fire Surfaces
Hrmmm, so the new Apple killer that everyone has been claiming it would be lacks cameras, GPS and storage.
It's not even an Android tablet competitor (vs. the likes of the Xoom, Iconia, etc....). And to top it of it's a "transitional" tablet, with the "real" one coming out sometime in 2012. Gah. I was actually excited until I read the specs.
If it had at least copied the basic hardware the HP Touchpad came out with it'd have been an iPad killer especially with Amazon's backing and a 199 price, but as it sits it's just a color nook with Angry birds.
Man Arrested for Wireless Piggybacking
I agree. And like I said, he could be in the same boat as your friend but the media chooses just to rely on the fact he was a sex offender and happened to be using an OPEN AP (they said it was for customers, can they prove he never bought anything in those 3 months?) And can you just buy one thing and use it as much as you want, or must you buy something each time to use it, etc...? Any decent lawyer will be able to get him off the hook and probably even get him some money from this whole thing.
