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.

General Chat / Demonoid is back ..... almost
« 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.

General Chat / Re: Firefox the new Chrome?
« on: May 10, 2014, 04:20:39 AM »
I recently and hopefully temporarily went back to the fox after chrome been giving me crap and eating my ram like a fat lady at a All you can eat buffet. Ok so I don't like that chrome uses a separate process for each window that is open because if one of the pages I have open decides to misbehave and freeze I have to shut down each process individually to completely reload chrome and I like to have my last open tabs return which chrome only does this if I reboot but if I want to terminate entire chrome without rebooting I have to end each process and only the last tab closed will return automatically when chrome is restarted. I know I can look in recently closed tabs but there should be an option to have them all restore automatically after chrome is closed completely by the user not during a reboot. So anyway Fox is looking almost like chrome now which I am not sure is a good thing. Seems like all these things are slowing it down and Chrome still appears faster for me on Windows 7.

General Chat / Re: Which SSD is better?
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:20:48 PM »
Ya this is going in a laptop that runs hot and currently has a 160GB hd. The laptop is really slow resuming from hibernation so I'm getting it to help that. Eventually I will get a boot ssd for the desktop as well. I ordered the Intel cuz of the 5 year warranty and because it was less $ than the Samsung. The total with tax came out to $149.71. Amazon has a warehouse 20 miles from here so I should have it this week.

General Chat / Which SSD is better?
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:02:40 AM »
Pinako warned me that Slickdeals will make you buy stuff that you otherwise wouldn't but you know what? It's ok. I work now so I will spend some money and enjoy things LOL.
I am in the run to buy my first SSD and Slickdeals has one for sale that interests me.
Intel 530 Series 2.5" SATA III MLC SSD: 240GB $136
http://www.amazon.com/Intel-2-5-Inch-Internal-Reseller-SSDSC2BW240A4K5/dp/B00DTPYT78/?t=slicinc-20&tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag=96751e0523b54d04a041a457c60e72ca

I was reading the comments on Slickdeals and someone mentioned that for a few $ more I can get the faster Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE250BW
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-EVO-Series-2-5-Inch-MZ-7TE250BW/dp/B00E3W1726?t=slicinc-20&tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag=7185602e88ff471596bdb387676bfc7a

But here is my question. I went to newegg and Amazon and compared the reviews. It seems that The Samsung has higher score in reviews but has a 3 year warranty VS 5 year on the Intel. Does it make sense to buy the Samsung with the shorter warranty? Also, from the reviews seems that more people reported the Intel drive just die some time after use. Personally I always trust Intel with CPUs but am not so sure about SSDs eventhough the warranty is better than Samsung. Samsung is a solid company except I had some problems with their desktop Spinpoint harddrives.

Any ideas?

I made a basic database from a blank one and it seems to be ok. I can check out the templates too.

You know I never thought about Access. I just got Office Pro 2013 few months ago through DHS for $10 (legally HAHA) and it does have Access. Will see how that goes then I guess I can try excel. Thanks.

General Chat / Recommendation on a database software?
« on: April 11, 2014, 05:01:43 PM »
Can someone recommend a modern database software for offline use not necessarily needed to be shown online but it could be useful if it can output html interactive pages. I'm basically talking about something that I can catalog computer parts I have here and be able to sort the columns any way I want by type or speed or brand etc. Something oldskool I used to use centuries ago like Borland Paradox or on Mac Filemaker Pro. Something simple.  I know I can probably accomplish this in excel but excel is a little too complicated to use and I'm not sure about sorting columns. Thanks!
