have you checked to see if you have some app hogging your cpu? I have the app battery doctor and it shows what apps use the most battery and maybe you can find out with that which one uses most battery could be the one that slows down too.

I mostly say that because my currwnt phone is slow if I have FB installed and some other apps that always stay running. I honestly think my stress level went down since I have the tablet. I no longer want to smash my phone into the ground as I mostly use it for calls and wifi tethering. Also now I don't even have to turn on my computer in the morning before work as I can use the tablet for the things I used to boot up my pc for which includes email, youtube, read the news and check weather. Oh and this tablet doesnt have any bloatware. There is nothing on it that I wish I could remove. Well except Google+ and Hangouts which I don't use but it wants to run in ram all the time.

I have a feeling that they may be having many returns on this. Now I just hope it lasts. If not then I lost about $40

Asus Nexus 7 2013 edition. Before I go any further I must admit that once I started playing around with it I now don't understand how I lived without one for so damn long. This thing is pure performance with visual quality higher than any Retina display Ipad. 7 inch screen with 1920x1200 resolution and a quadcore 1.5ghz, 2GB ram, gps, 2.4/5ghz N WIFI and Bluetooth 4.0. One thing I would like to have more of is flash storage. After the OS (Android 4.4.4) takes its space I only have left about 11 gigs. Not a big deal as I will not be storing a crap load of media on it. The best part of this tablet was the price. $130 on ebay with free shipping. It's a refurbished model but when I received it it looked brand new with no scratches anywhere and no finger prints. Also it's just small enough to fit in my work pant pocket so I have it with me all day and when I get my breaks and lunch I have quick access to it.

General Chat / Re: The Cheapest Smartphone Plan
« on: August 14, 2014, 05:58:16 PM »
My current MVNO, GoSmart has modified one of their plans so I jumped on it. It used to be $45/m with unlimited talk, text and data with 5GB of 3G data then the rest at 2G (Edge). New plan is the same except costs $40/M and 3GB of 3G. This past month I used up 500MB of 3G in 8 days while tethering my phone to my new Nexus 7 tablet so I think I should be ok with the $40/m plan. I don't stream music/video much so I'm not too worried about using up the 3GB fast. And since I work now I can afford $5 more per month. Makes sense? Anyone know of something better that has no contract and works just by swapping a sim card?

Update! After receiving the card I ordered I had no luck getting it to work. Drivers installed correctly but then I was getting some weird error message when I did the Intel diagnostics. Called Intel and they wouldn't help!!!!!!!!!! Pricks told me that the card was OEM and it was only sold to computer manufacturers. This is really disappointing to me that a huge company like Intel would just blow me off like that. Anyway after a several days trying different drivers and research looking up the problems people had with this card I decided to contact Amazon to exchange it. Well, Amazon did not accept exchanges for this particular product so I had to ship it back to them. They gave me a prepaid shipping label so it was no problem. Once I saw that the refund was posted I researched some more and stumbled upon a site that basically said these cards are great IF you get one that works. HAHAHA. So I decided to order another from the same place and they were right, this one worked! I have not tested it with AC networks as My router does N max but I am happy so far. Haven't really played with the bluetooth 4.0 that also comes on the card but I did try my bluetooth mouse and that worked. So I guess there may be a high failure rate on these cards and that's why they are selling for so cheap.

I know why they do this. They jack up the price whenever they are out of stock. They probably setup the listing with 2000 units available for example and they only stock a small amount. When they run out of stock they edit the listing to change the  price to one noone will every buy at and that way they save on re-listing fees. They have one listing practically forever.

I hope this card will work when I get it. Some people were mentioning that the bios would not allow the card to work in their laptop.

So what's the difference with the Moto G I posted and the other? Why are there 2 with different features and product pages?

I currently have VOIP (Nettalk) but when my yearly contract is up I will re activate my MagicJack as I had problems with Nettalk and they screwed me out of about 4 months of service. Also, I just looked up the specs for Moto G on Motorola site http://www.motorola.com/us/moto-g-pdp-1/Moto-G/moto-g-pdp.html and they don't mention anything about dual sims.

Just to chime in I got GoSmart which is T-Mobile MVNO and I been using them for about a year now and I pay 35$/M for unlimited everything. Data speed is 3G for the first 500MB then drops to Edge (2G). And the 35$ is the exact price I pay. No taxes or fees on top of that and I can go to a local store to refill each month or refil through GoSmart for 35$+tax

@ Egg-Roll I told him basically what you said. Now its up to him. I will not be getting involved in cracking his games or his PS4 if he decides to buy it. I got other things I can do and use my electricity in a more meaningful way. 
@Pinako Ya I know. He wants too much for too little. Delivers pizza and fried chicken 12 hours each day including weekends. Has 2 kids and a wife.

I don't like people that do not care if their actions will affect someone else in a negative way, for example at work.

General Chat / I figure Iwould ask here first about PS4 hacking
« on: June 09, 2014, 10:31:34 AM »
I am a total newb to the entire console game world but a friend of mine is thinking about getting a PS4 for his 2 kids age 11 and 9 IF they do good in summer school. He asked me about PS4 used to play downloaded games and such. I have no idea.  Does the console itself need to be hacked for it to accept games downloaded from piratebay or similar site? How easy is it to do? My logic tells me that it does as Sony and other manufacturers will not make it easy for the consumers to play pirated games. So if anyone here can tell me some info regarding this subject I will pass this info on to my friend.
Thank you.

« on: May 10, 2014, 04:27:17 AM »
Demonoid is back but not quite to the level it was years ago. It now uses a demonoid.ph domain.
Also Demonoid is in a little bit of trouble with Google.
