  1. I have indeed noticed this same effect on my 1st gen iPad Air. Accidentally swiping left to bring the "multitasking" view cripples my iPad for 5 seconds while it tries to load it. Swiping up for spotlight search also has the same effect. I definitely feel like this intentional downgrade in performance could be intentional as an "incentive" to buy new devices.
  2. Couldn't agree more. I've been getting a blue screen with the "CPUz_136_NON_PAGED_AREA" whatever that means, I'm also having a host of issues with the NVIDIA SLI drivers, and memory leaks left and right.

    T-mobile will let you stream video for free

    One slight limit, however, all video streaming through this program (called Bringe On, which is only for some services) is downscaled to 480p. Source: http://arstechnica.com/business/2015/11/t-mobile-exempts-video-from-data-caps-but-lowers-resolution-to-480p/
  4. I agree entirely, there must be some legal loophole if it's gone this far that they're exploiting. I'll look into it and update with whatever info I find.
  5. Doesn't look so good. Over the last 3 months, I've invested quite a lot to replace my network equipment and devices to support 5Ghz, and the difference I've seen by doing that has been astonishing. LTE is already fast enough IMO and there are several other ways for service providers to increase speeds rather than moving in on public spectrums such as the 5ghz band. But as always, there are two sides to the story; Luckily, Honestly I really do hope that this doesn't go through. Do you agree?

  6. Thanks for the info, will edit!
  7. Done with life. But on a serious note, People who pay for the ability to watch these channels are being denied access to them, which is entirely unreasonable. While I understand that future buisness acquisitions are important to consider, no company should abuse another like this especially when it effects the consumer in such a negative way.

    newb oc'er

    Wrong section, and 44x is the defualt turbo boost, try to get 46x and under 75c
  9. Damn, that's low. I'm honestly pretty shocked by this. Wasn't this a problem with a hotel chain a few years back? Source: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/08/company-pays-fcc-750000-for-blocking-wi-fi-hotspots-at-conventions/ (1stnewspostplsdonthurtmeifimessedup)
  10. This is a really good analysis, thank you! I'll probably be holding off until Zen too.
  11. Seems like a cool idea. Not really a fan of the default cooling though.

    Kotaku banned from Ubisoft's E3 press event

    But seriously, it's completly ubi's choice whether or not to invite them. Chances are if someone talked shit about you, you wouldn't invite them to your party.

    Hardware Canucks Gets Thermaltake's Side Of The Story

    Sorry, I didn't type my OP too well. What I was trying to say was if something (Thermaltake's design) looks identical (and doesn't sacrifice enough build quality to turn a customer off) to a more expensive product, consumers looking for a flashy yet cheaper alternative may look towards thermaltake's case. I say it's up to caselabs to either . A ) Sell their cases for less B )Create a new case design. Remember that competition is what drives innovation. If a company makes a device that looks akeen to an iphone and performs better (ahem S6), Apple doesn't sue. They make a better phone (or make a phone seem better) than Samsung (perhaps 6s) and hope to recapture customers. It's the cycle of the market, and It's caselab's turn to go.
