Anyone else notice that the (poorly-concealed Dell) monitor in the video below seems to be displaying the screen in a contracted "overscan" view? Looks like they couldn't get the video driver to work right before recording this demo... »
Deflecting blame may be more effective when it's accurate. Sometimes, you really have been hindered by a co-worker who doesn't answer emails, a contractor who evaded difficult questions, or a maintenance worker who interrupted your work because there's a leak in the lab above your office and they have to get into the… »
I appreciated the indicator in Chrome when they added it, but immediately found myself clicking the little icon to mute the tab. Seems like how that should work—and not by pausing the video or stopping the Flash, but just by muting the sound. »
Eric, you are my hero. I had never heard of 2nd of Charles, and when you said they don't have enough locations, I thought, "Oh, well that's why. We never get the good stuff in Birmingham, AL. We don't even have an Ikea." Then I checked the website...
I am totally making a trip out there this weekend! Apparently… »
I'm right there with you on that. Although it gets annoying when co-workers are all like, "You're using an S-II? You know there's an S-5 now, right?" And I have to defend it by saying, "You know I've got a replacement ROM on this thing that runs all the apps I need to use like butter, and I've got no contract and a… »
Doesn't work as well on the weird vinyl textured wallpaper that some people apparently thought was a good idea in the seventies. »
Passing over the misleading headline that others have pointed out (that this myth relates only to backlit devices), it leads me to a related point. »
I'm sorry, but that is tragic. If they wanted to build this hybrid coaster, they should have started from scratch. You can't alter an historic coaster like that; it's unforgivable. »
I didn't know about Ctrl-Shift-V! Thanks for teaching me another useful trick, Eric!
Lol, I have been using the technique of Ctrl-C, open Notepad, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-A-, Ctrl-X, close Notepad, Ctrl-V wherever I want to paste text without the formatting. »
I have a Prius, which obviously only comes in hybrid, so it doesn't make the list. But comparing it to the Camry, which costs about $2000 less but has a spread of a whopping 25 mpg when compared to the Prius (25 v. 50), I think it was a smart choice. Especially so for my wife and I, as we go on a LOT of road trips. »
While this is a morbidly fascinating thing to read, you should really take it down. Or, at the very least, remove the hyperlink to the Gofundme page. This story went up yesterday at 5PM, and you say it had $140k at that time. It's now just 8:30AM the next morning, and they're up to $208k. That's a nearly 50% spike… »
It is scummy, and, I think, counterproductive. Because the perception now is that you can't trust apps in Microsoft's Windows 8 Store, and, last I checked, that whole interface was supposed to be their flagship, their baby.
It seems to me reminiscent of the Vista/7 desktop gadget gallery. That wasn't exactly the… »
Would love to know if anyone knows a quick way to just restart explorer.exe in Windows 8. I don't know if others have experienced this, but I've tried the OS on multiple machines and keep running into the problem of the taskbar and Start (Modern/Metro) screen going completely insane, with graphics all over the place,… »
Love this thing, but the range isn't great, considering it's clearly designed to be used in a living room setup. My feet are constantly causing interference, when I have them propped up on the ottoman and have the keyboard in my lap. Only about 5 feet from the USB receiver. »
Personal experience and anecdotal evidence from the other comments here seem to support that you need two "Bill Haggle Days." One for the cable company, and one for everything else. I'd also recommend having some alcohol on hand to celebrate when you're done with your cable company "of choice." »
