Which Android Devices Sacrifice Battery-Life For Performance?

synapse7 Re:all (108 comments)

Any phone that can run a game is sacrificing battery for performance. If you set the cpu limit to 800mhz you still will be able to "work" from your phone and will gain 12-24 hours of battery time.

Netflix Video Speed On FiOS Doubles After Netflix-Verizon Deal

synapse7 Google next? (204 comments)

I occasionally view instructional videos from youtube at the low default quality, the videos will play for roughly 10-15 seconds and then stop. I have to pause the video, wait for it to buffer and continue to do this to get through the video. I'm on a 60mb service which tests out fine, I can download over 7MB/sec but can't reliably stream 480p video from youtube.com.

Anybody else experiencing this with youtube?

The Minecraft Parent

synapse7 Re:I look forward to Minecraft with my son (174 comments)

My 2 year old girl runs around in Minecraft on her tablet and on a PC. Although by her behavior she must have inherited my genes from playing doom, duke nukem and the like growing up. Unless your son is isolated, I doubt you will be able to keep him from minecraft before 3.

U2 and Apple Collaborate On 'Non-Piratable, Interactive Format For Music'

synapse7 Re:This is silly (358 comments)

I would like audio tracks to have a higher sample rate, something similar to audio from a DVD. It is 2014, I'm starting to feel fucking old and music is still at the same quality as it was when I was buying CDs in the 80s.

Microsoft Killing Off Windows Phone Brand Name In Favor of Just Windows

synapse7 Re:Abject brand mismanagement (352 comments)

That is why most people are unable to update a windows 8 install. It is even a pain for me because I can't seem to push out some updates from WSUS and have to get these from the windows store, WTF. If there is a work around I haven't put out enough time to find it..

Is nvidia using patents on commonplace patents to get a piece of the pie they are jealous the don't have. Or are these legitimate patents and said companies are willfully stealing technology?
 
Keep in mind my next purchases for video cards and cell phones will depend on the answer..
