Alienware's Triangular Area-51 Re-Design With Tri-SLI GeForce GTX 980, Tested

Dan Askme Re:Nice Advert, shame about the detail (132 comments)

but to just label everything Dell makes as cheap is incorrect.

I worked in a PC repair shop for 5 years. Most of the PC's we had for repair by the customer was Dell (yes i'am aware of popularity increases that number).

Nearly all the Dell systems we had were PSU failures just after their warranty expired (13months +). The others were motherboard failures.
We never had a Dell PC with a broken HDD or CPU, mainly because Dell couldnt profit from making a cheap counterpart.

They are cheap.
Look at a "custom" Dell motherboard if you get the chance, notice how most of it is empty space (parts removed for profit) and low quality PCB components. Dell's "custom" parts give you the bear minimal with only one goal, to just reach outside the warranty window before it goes.

Can Ello Legally Promise To Remain Ad-Free?

Clearly this is just an attempt to get the userbase up. If completed, and data centres are required, these "promises" will soon disappear.

OEM Windows 7 License Sales End This Friday

Dan Askme Backlog and Profits (231 comments)

MS clearly wants to force Windows 8 onto its users, even if it means pissing them off, we knew that from day one. This is clearly their last ditched method of getting it done.

Cant get someone to buy your "upgraded" product? Force them.

The sheer backlog of OEM keys will remain in circulation for at least 2-6months afterwards.
If you cant get a 7 Key after that, might as well buy a tablet. Then you can read on wikipedia about what computers were like before the "Useless Big Empty Square Monster" took over your PC.

Alienware's Triangular Area-51 Re-Design With Tri-SLI GeForce GTX 980, Tested

Dan Askme Nice Advert, shame about the detail (132 comments)

Motherboard:
Custom Alienware Area-51
Power Supply:
Custom Alienware 1500 Watt

These "Dell" minimal/cheap profit driven components worry me. As with all Dells, they skimp on quality.
Whatever the warranty is, add a day. Thats how long your PC will last before you need to pay over the top prices for "custom" replacement parts.

The only "good" parts in this package is the GFX cards and CPU. The rest is just cheap profit driven components. I mean, look at the stock ram without heatsinks, look at that "custom" motherboard. How cheap can you go lol.

Monitor is 8ms response time....... On a system marketed at "hardcore gaming". Only Dell!

Review (Advert) also lacks:
- Psu specs (number of 12v rails, efficiently, etc)

This product is such a gimmick. I feel sorry for those who are unable to build their own PC's with higher quality components, whilst saving 50% on the price.

After an NPR podcast fingered the marketing of tampons to girls as the culprit behind the declining percentages of male tampon users.

Doctor Who To Teach Kids To Code

Dan Askme Re:UK Only? (164 comments)

At the moment it appears that this is only accessible in the UK. Are there any plans for it to be released elsewhere (without having to circumvent location blocking)?

British Broadcasting Commission.
And yes, they block all non-UK IP addresses from accessing the BBC websites. Anyone in the UK who watches live TV must pay a TV license, which all goes to the BBC. So in effect, only we (the UK) pay for the service, and, are given access to it.

You'll either have to wait for BBC worldwide to take it on, or, get yourself a VPN in the UK.

Which Android Devices Sacrifice Battery-Life For Performance?

Dan Askme Irrelevant. Comes down to users. (108 comments)

Which Android Devices Sacrifice Battery-Life For Performance?

The ones owned by people who dont know about background processing?

The majority of users have no clue why/how the battery drains, each device and its user will get different "real world" results.
At the end of the day, those users probably couldn't care less because they can magically charge it with electricity!

Gigabit Cellular Networks Could Happen, With 24GHz Spectrum

Dan Askme Range? (52 comments)

Cellular networks currently use frequencies between 600 MHz to 3 GHz with the most desirable frequencies under 1 GHz

Mostly because the wavelength and potential range at 600-3000MHz(UHF) is greater than those at 24ghz (SHF).

http://patentimages.storage.go...

Longer wavelength, longer range. Rocket science.

BitHammer, the BitTorrent Banhammer

Dan Askme Python - Destroying the planet? (429 comments)

Clearly you care more about getting free internet access than saving the planet.

Why didnt you write it in c++? do you not care about:
- Energy usage of your program
- The impact it will have on world energy supply usage
- The extra heat generated to process python on your CPU, impacting the worlds environmental temperature.

But hey, we can all be aholes like you when we use your mentality of thinking.
I'am off to make a program written in Java that keeps my CPU usage at 100%, because noone will let me share their radiator for free..........

Coinye Currency Abandoned due to Legal Threats

Dan Askme Dan Askme writes  |  about 9 months ago

Dan Askme (2895283) writes "West, who alleges that the creators of Coinye are trading on his name and image without permission, had previously filed suit against the anonymous coders who are creating it. Today he broadened his attack to include the operators of Coinye exchanges including 0daycoins.com, Coinye-Exchange.com, and NewChg.com.

Coinye developers have apparently abandoned the project.
