Just curious if anyone else does what I do.
I have the U300 package most of the time. But when I switch to U450 (another $20), AT&T gives me a $100 VISA gift card after having U450 for 30 days. I then switch back to U300, and I get a promotional 3 free months of HBO and Cinemax and a free month o...
| Tech Board|| A way to filter out clickbait news sites from Google Now? - ILikeLSUToo on 2/2/15 at 1:11 am|
I like using Google Now to peruse random articles of interest -- usually a lot of tech-related news. Unfortunately, the topic of tech is a haven for clickbait article farms (rumors without substance, misleading headlines that don't deliver, etc.). I've noticed my Google Now page getting more of thes...

Need something to listen to in the car on my 10-hour drive through the night to visit my parents next week. Go-to has always been standup comedy. Some of my favorites are Louis CK, Tom Segura, John Mulaney, Patton Oswalt, Bill Burr, and Hannibal Buress.
Recommendations from those with similar tas...

Same price as the 5K iMac, except the iMac has a computer inside (main drawback being you can't use the iMac display for anything but the iMac, for now at least). Both use the same LG panel I'm sure....

I also found it funny that of the 7 desktop icons I could actually see, 5 of them are malware/crapware.
It's almost irresponsible of me to suggest a new comput...

I just stumbled across a discussion that's pretty important, affecting Samsung 840 EVO SSDs.
Apparently, the longer a file remains on the SSD, the slower it is to be read. And by slower, I mean MUCH slower. Discussion on Overclock.net:

I know its early, but it occurred to me today that this year's medical expenses are going to probably well exceed 10% of our AGI, and with mortgage interest on top of that, I should easily be able to itemize.
The big expenses will come from my 3-month-old son's surgery, which happens next week, a...

My son had his one-month checkup this morning. His head has been misshapen since birth, but the doctors all assumed it would go back to normal quickly -- he was a C-section birth and required the use of suction to get him out.
Now, suddenly at his one-month appointment, the pediatrician is concer...
