That's when your take on social media is to post gazillions of pieces of wisdom like "there are people who don't know how to love, but so many who know how to make you feel bad!" memes etc., and whatever else drivel you can read on Facebook. I bet if they would sit the same person at a table instead of them looking at Facebook postings on their screen and give them the same equation they might be able to solve it.

Original version has 'Books' instead of Steam image. A gamer made this version.

LOL well it's not always that easy (the nap part). Responsibilities and all. Plus I tend to wake up for naps with thoughts to write on my whiteboards (of which I have a few).

This.

I use an OS to launch and run software. I'm happiest with Windows when it gets out of my way, but Windows 10 has been trying too hard to be my "friend".

Thanks, but I should have been more clear. I was referring to console games, not PC games. My PC is basically an MMO machine, everything else I play on a console. (Although I expect that will start to change around summer of next year when I do my next PC upgrade.)

My life as I know it has come to an end today. Netflix has come to India, I have subscribed to the UltraHD package, watched the first episodes of Jessica Jones, Sense 8 etc., too many TV shows & not enough time, please send help...

We had Netflix for a while but ended up cancelling it. We did enjoy Daredevil and lots of stand-up comedians

I have been posting that I need a new TV to replace my 8 year old 32" TV, now the time has come. I have been pouring myself into different review sites and forums over the past three days, made phone calls to/visited many showrooms and as a result have given birth to the following rant.

TV manufacturers are trying to dupe me(and succeeding). I don't want a curved TV but many of the good models are curved. I don't want a 4K monitor but you don't get premium features in Full HD models anymore. Best Full HD model seems to be Samsung J6300 and it's average at best. Models like JS9000, JU7500, Sony 850C are all great TVs but are 4K. Where's the 4K content? There's little to none of it. If if we get more 4K content in the future, human eye can't see a difference from 5ft+ distance anyway. So I need to pay for a 4K TV to get great picture quality and then use it to watch 1080p content. What?

I'm currently deciding between Samsung 7500 and 9000, which brings me to my frustration with TV prices in India. I don't know if the government taxes are to blame or it's supply/demand kind of thing but TV prices in India are sometimes double that of anywhere else. 55JS9000 is $2297 on Amazon.com, and it's $3656 in India. Prices in UK, Singapore are on par with American prices. It's cheaper if a friend brings a TV from abroad even after paying 36% customs! But I'm not going that route because of warranty.
/end of rant

I'm gonna buy Samsung 55J6300(Full HD) or Samsung 55JU7500(4K but no HDR/WCG) this week. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions for me!

PS: My TV purchase 3-4 months earlier than planned is inspired by +Michael Birke's TV posts on G+ a few months ago.

Hi Wyz,
I bought a Samsung UN46ES8000 three years ago, for half the price of trying to go to Blizzcon, and then we streamed. I don't watch a lot of TV, but here is what I use it for: Old VHS martial arts tapes, various old DVDs, Chromecast from my phone, Netflix, and streaming video via Chromecast. It's hooked up to WiFi. The built-in speakers are decent. I mounted it to the wall. I chose it because I liked the colors. It is smaller, so pixels are smaller, which makes for higher quality image. Also, no motion blur. I've used it with an old PS2, and that works. UI is a pain, like all TVs, but basically functional. It's got tons of outlets for cables. Gesture/Voice UI is crap. I tried the 3D and it works, but I don't use it as there is no content. I bought it at Best Buy store, which is a few blocks away from my place. Oh, and it's flat.

There is also a 60 inch version. You may be able to find a refurbished one.

Well handled by Phil Spencer. That person doesn't seem to realise how childish he/she looks.

After coming so close if Bernie loses in Iowa, it would be so disappointing. What a close finish going on though: https://www.idpcaucuses.com/#/state

I'm watching movies from Netflix Canada mostly these days, hope they don't disable DNS re-routing.
If you’re like many Canucks, you haven’t let being north of the U.S. border stop you from watching your favourite TV shows and movies on Netflix. But now the service is cracking down on users who disguise their location.

I think Canada is more perverted, at least as a percentage of the population. India has a slight population advantage ;)
