Netflix just doesn't do it for me. Yes, it has more content but it's content that I have no interest in. Just like Amazon, it has few movies that are new and good. At least with Amazon, I have the option of renting a newer movie. I have to leave Netflix for that.

I buy Netflix twice a year for a month to get their original content. I just got it for House of Cards and then couldn't find anything to watch. What am I watching tonight? I paid for the last Hobbit movie on Amazon (with credit I got for not taking two day shipping on my Prime account).

In a way, Netflix is better because I don't have to have a yearly contract. However, I bought Prime for the shipping and so I use the heck out of it. I bet Amazon will eventually offer the movie service monthly as well ... once they start making some coin.

Filling it with acid and having the nozzle jam?

General question. I have a 17" laptop with a non SSD hard drive and optical drive that I have connected to an external monitor. My desk is not very big so to reduce the footprint I may want to buy a vertical stand for the laptop (I usually have the lid closed anyway when at my desk). Is this a bad idea?

Shouldn't matter. The biggest issue is moving it while the hard drive is running but I think laptops pretty much took care of that. Just don't block the exhausts.

I don't find this weird. It was almost two years before I found the strength to delete my father from my contact listing.

I never considered deleting them as I want to keep their details. I do add a date of death field.

If this can happen, Cyanogen is the only one I know of that can do it.
Speaking bold words once again, Cyanogen's Kirt McMaster says they are preparing to put "a bullet through Google's head". The first step? Reportedly Cyanogen may be teaming up with Blu to create a phone without Google services.

Good. Add Blu to OnePlus and BlackBerry to the list of companies trying to implement Android without Google. Google needs to be a customer of Android phones and not the other way around.

Dots anyone know of a download program/app/plugin that integrates SHA/MD5 verification?

Ideally I'd like to be able to input the MD5 checksum, click on download, then let the program do the rest.

There are lots of manual ways of doing it, kinda want to make this easier.

A Windows and *nix solution are both desirable.

+Michael Misch While true, I've yet to meet a school with the ability to pay for proper backups, hot swappable servers, or a decent network admin.

A good CoLo would have helped immensely, though. And you might be able to get a discount as a not-for-profit or an educational institution.

Called Pony Express, the service also is designed to let people pay their bills within Gmail, rather than having to go to a telecom or utility company’s website to complete a payment.

After all the article's 'hype', he ends it with saying the Titan X can be outperformed by the GTX 980!?! Does he mean 'GPU performance' based on ROI?!?
