    DigitalHermit reacted to ripanotha2013og in Apple up to no good? They could possibly be intentionally slowing down older devices.   
    Money is a pretty big factor if you ask me.
     
    And for cell phones, contracts can be a bitch.

    Yeah, that Pentium should be enough for a home file server,
    no problem. Nicely enough, it also supports ECC memory if
    you wish to use ZFS or something else which would make using
    ECC RAM a good idea. And 8 GB is fine for streaming and
    bulk storage (unless, again, ZFS in some circumstances).
    EDIT:
    Or, as said, an Atom might also be a viable solution. Many
    roads lead to Rome and all that.

    An Atom-based system with FreeNAS would do fine if it's just for personal use...

    You can also check out the Raspberry Pi stuff... They should have one being used as a NAS server...
     
    EDIT:
    You'd need at least 2 HDDs for FreeNAS... The OS takes up the entirety of one disk (I'd recommend getting a small SSD for this or a 32GB SD Card/USB Drive)...

    Don't worry about it% from statistics I have read.
     
    They fail so little that it isn't worth your time to choose a card based on failure rates.

    DigitalHermit reacted to Craftable124 in What do people hate about Apple?   
    I do not hate apple, nor dislike them as a company. I do however dislike their products, as they don't have the functionality I can get with a custom windows machine or an android phone.
     
    Actually I do find them over-priced. The new Razer Blade Is a beast of a machine, especially for how thin & light it is, and it's much better performance wise than the equivalently priced MacBook Pro. And if bulk isn't a concern, you can get MONSTROUS performance for much cheaper than both.
     
    I find the mac pro stupid regardless of your defense for it. I'm not in the position to buy a workstation right now, but I don't need a tiny system, nor all the external things it requires. I don't know about the pro marked it's aimed at, but it's lacking internal expansion kills it for me. With my desktop, I can expand to 7 HDDs, multiple GPUs, 2 CPUs , and whatever I need that can connect to PCI, like a capture card, RAID card, etc. I CAN add this stuff with a Mac Pro, but that requires a desk cluttered with peripherals I could have inside a PC.
     
    Thirdly, I dislike MacOS for serious work. I actually like it for basic stuff like web browsing and such because it's simple and it has a nice UX (is that the right acronym?) I think. For serious work, I prefer windows. I like VisualStudio better than Xcode, and Windows has all the pro software like Premiere proand Pro Tools (I actually use Sonar, but that's beside the point) so I see no reason to use MacOS for production.
    I also begin to miss the windows aero functions like drag to top for maximize, etc.
     
    This one's obvious but gaming. Mac hardware usually lacks in the graphics department, and the lack of games for MacOS was actually the final straw for me buying a new laptop.
     
    Finally, Their stuff is locked down. I owned an iPhone 4, and I must say after Jailbreaking it was great, however after switching to an LG G2 years later, I realized that Android let you do so much of the things I could do with my iPhone after jailbreaking without even rooting my device, and being one for customization I instantly loved that.
     
    Keep in mind I have owned a MacBook pro, and multiple iPhones in the past, So I'm not rebroadcasting what I've heard, this is from experience.

    Anddd here comes the economist!
    10 trillion dollar that didn't depreciate in value? I'd take 1 trillion and set up a legitimate charity, and reinvest the rest into innovative companies that I think would make a difference in the world. Then I'd continue to live as a middle class guy with a hired bodyguard that poses as a business associate.
    Surprise my future spouse with my financial status that I'll keep hidden till I get married.
