Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on November 29, 2012, 06:15:41 PMI have heard good things about Windows 8...once you get used to it.Alot of it depends on how many cores your cpu has. If you have 1 or 2 cores XP does everything you need and is stable.
Quote from: Sardondi on December 23, 2012, 02:37:08 PMTo me XP was the Golden Age of MS operating systems. Rock-solid and incredibly stable, it was ubiquitous, well-known, predictable and longer-lived than any other similar OS. I miss you, XP.
Quote from: Camazotz Automat on August 23, 2012, 03:49:04 PMWaiting to see what Apple's next big thing is. I've been wondering if the reason we haven't seen an Apple tv set is that Apple is going to work with LG to produce an OLED tv which would doubly knock out the competition.An article on Yahoo says it makes 4k look tame.http://shopping.yahoo.com/news/forget-4k-ultra-hd-tvs--i-want-an-oled-tv-230337960.htmlHere's another one from Forbes.http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelkanellos/2012/01/12/seven-reasons-why-oled-tvs-could-really-be-real/A guy at Best Buy told me that they will be coming out in March, he also said the prices of current tvs will plummet once OLED hits the market. This article in Forbes says that we can expect prices for them to drop from $ 10k to $ 2k by 2015.LG & Sony have announced that they will be the first to bring them to market with Sony using LG screens until they ramp up their own production. When I buy tv, blue ray players or anything of that ilk, I buy Sony because consistently over the years they last and don't die like the Panasonic my gf's Dad did before he died. It lasted 6 months and died. My Sony tv is 12 years old and still going strong. My gf has my original and its 18 years old. My late friend Glenn had the first production number projection tv Sony ever made because he had bought so much stuff from them. It lasted 18 years and he only switched because they stopped making parts for the projector. Sony - still no baloney.I'm gonna buy a flat screen wifi 60 inch Sony this year to use as a 2nd monitor for the Imac because I have trouble reading small print any more but once I see OLED dropping to $ 2k, I'll get that and give the flat screen to my gf.I can remember going into Costco and seeing the first flat screens they have and they used to be about $ 5k 10 years ago. Now you can get 40 inch ones at Target for $ 250. First adopters always pay the price for being pioneers with new tech.

Quote from: Rachael Nexusei on January 31, 2013, 05:16:40 PMI guess this would go here. It is random and about technology and is on my mind.Do you think continued advances in technology will eventually replace almost all jobs?Sort of like robotics taking over, and we all know what the outcome of that always is!I dunno though, I like robots. As long as they know the rules- "A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws." I am serious about the first part of this statement, well, line two precisely.

Quote from: West of the Rockies on September 24, 2013, 10:49:55 AMJust a quick question from a non-techie. What does "cloud" refer to in regards to networks and such? I'm suddenly hearing something about clouds on various commercials. I don't recall hearing this term even a few months ago.
