  1. Just want to poin out that there are other applications for PCIE Express than just graphics cards, but yes you are correct that in the gaming market its just going to be another marketing 'feature' for mobo manufacturers.
  2. What other updates have they made to Edge? Any performance/efficiency ones? I assume it would get worse since it now supports extensions. Also did they add touchscreen gestures such as swiping right to go to previous page?
  3. Current setup - an Kinesis ergonomic keyboard, a Microsoft Intellipoint mouse, and a Monoprice headset. Thanks for the giveaway!
  4. Dark Theme + Linux Subsystem + Android SMS Passthrough + Little things like taskbar notif count, can't wait.
  5. Got a reference HD 7970 that runs loud and hot, but also well so i'm not complaining. However an upgrade is always nice, especially when free!
  6. but where was the driver when it hit the trailer? obviously he/she did not see it either. Nobody is claiming it is perfect, again its just an assistance, and people need to treat it as such (which is on Tesla for improper/insufficient marketing/warning). I hope pedestrians never get hit, and i'm not saying its not possible, but since autopilot doesn't handle stop signs or traffic signals, i don't know what situations a car would encounter pedestrians where its feasible to have autopilot on. also btw its "the question is when, not if, ____". what you said (how long, when) are the same thing xD, just letting you know for future use.
  7. not sure where you got the $17k number, Verge is saying its $3k: http://www.theverge.com/2016/4/18/11451236/tesla-autopilot-trial-self-driving-autonomous (which i didn't know, thought it was free). Nonetheless, I think its worth it since if you can afford the 80k car, another 3k is worth it for making a daily work commute less draining. This and in addition i think they should have people earn a type of license to use this feature, some kind of training course because it is obvious people are not using it safely. source on when AP caused someone's head being chopped off please. And if you look at the ratio of miles driven to accidents the autopilot does better than human driving. Still though Autopilot is not meant to replace human driving, it is more of an advanced cruise control and needs to be emphasized as such. Even though i think its cool, i honestly don't know how people can trust it enough to take over driving for them, its just an assistance.
  8. Looks like a great projector, really cool how it only needs to be 4" away. I'm thinking of getting a projector for my Dad's birthday, will give this one a consideration!
  9. careful, you might get murdered with that kind of love for console on this forum! but in seriousness I'm considering getting an Xbox One for all the TV/OneGuide features (OTA support). I also need a new laptop and was waiting for the new macbook (since i want *nix), but since the anniversary update is going to have Linux for Windows, this looks tempting.
  10. I'm using a standard Dell OEM Keyboard and its starting to hurt my wrists, currently wearing a wrist brace while typing this.
  11. Google already does this if you have an Android + Google Now. When I enter a store it gives me a notification asking if I want to see coupons. Then afterwards it will ask me if i want to put a review on maps or wte.
  12. I'm building an android app with a webview component and am currently implementing how PDFs get opened in the webview. The site I am accessing is our university's course dashboard (where we can access hw, grades, announcements, etc) which requires a login to access the content. In my webview, if i attempt to download and open a PDF posted by an instructor, it redirects the link to the login page even though I am already logged in. However the pdf downloads/opens when accessing the site the Chrome app. Here is my code for downloading: myView.setDownloadListener(new DownloadListener() { public void onDownloadStart(String url, String userAgent, String contentDisposition, String mimetype, long contentLength) { DownloadManager.Request request = new DownloadManager.Request( Uri.parse(url)); request.allowScanningByMediaScanner(); request.setNotificationVisibility(DownloadManager.Request.VISIBILITY_VISIBLE_NOTIFY_COMPLETED); request.setDestinationInExternalPublicDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS, "temp_file.pdf"); DownloadManager dm = (DownloadManager) getSystemService(DOWNLOAD_SERVICE); dm.enqueue(request); } }); Is there something I'm missing dealing with cookies/session handling? I'm rather new to android. Alternatively the same login page is presented if i attempt to load the PDF through the Google Docs Viewer. Thanks in advance.
  13. could you give me a link to where its $70? Thanks!
  14. question is do they actually review all the feedback they receive.
  15. So basically they're replacing 5 of the pre-installed apps with promoted/suggested tiles? Isn't that a good thing?
