    HP Unveils Five New Innovative and Stylish Consumer Products for Holiday

    That's common way to attempt to argue with no arguments :) Never did I say that "I personally prefer" or that "I'm fine with a power brick", but you attempt to put those words into my mouth while lacking the technical arguments.

    WD has already spent over 7 billion dollars in cash in the last 12 months and prospects are even greater. Going to 7 billion of cash spending from net income of around 100 million last year is likely a historical evolution. I don't think they would even care about our boycott, but I'm dead...

    That's exactly what I've been doing for the last seven months, but I need more capacity and don' really have time to write hundreds of DVDs ... Why do you think I was asking about Blu-ray or tape media ? :) Because I'd hate buying HDDs right now !

    HDD Prices Won't Ever Go Down ! :( How can we boycott?

    I've just read this http://news.softpedia.com/news/HDD-Market-Oligarchy-Continues-Seagate-s-Net-Income-Increases-by-1200-274596.shtml ... and then realized things are going the wrong way. Blu-ray media is still kinda expensive in my view. Tape media is even more in-affordable ... After...

    GPU-Z Crashing Computer

    So, I've tested with 2 more games: Combat Arms ... that I think is based on the same game engine and Mass Effect 1. Both games work perfectly with Fraps, uTorrent and Avira 9 running in the background. The moment I start GPU-Z, in 1 or 2 minutes the system freezes. I've also tried with the...
