The failure of being Time Warner

With last year’s acquisition of Insight Communications by Time Warner, I have begun to see why customers of Time Warner have grown disgusted with the quality of their services and why are considering DirecTV. For months on end I have seen nothing but a degradation of my services at home, services that I depend upon to be able to accomplish the vast majority of the work that I do. When Insight was our provider, never did I see failing quality like this nor did I have any complaints regarding their customer service reps who were always more than happy to assist any problem I may have had.

The reverse is true with Time Warner. (more…)

I have to start thinking about a new laptop

Laptops

I have had this laptop since I went off to NC State out of High School. Before that I just had a desktop computer and I replaced it a couple of years ago. That is what I use if I have any serious stuff to do, because this laptop is not all that capable any more. It is simply out of date and over time it seems to have gotten slower for what ever reason. So I am going to take a good long hard look at the best Cyber Monday laptop deals for 2014. I am not sure what I am going to be looking for. Obviously there are a wide variety of options. The nicest thing would be if you could find a real gaming laptop at a reasonable price and I am guessing that it is not going to be too far in the future when that becomes a real possibility.

Working On This Used Phone

I got this iphone for free and I decided that I would sacrifice it to the project of learning more about the operating system which Apple uses on the thing. I am mostly interested in iOS 8 jailbreak s, this phone is an AT & T phone and I have no desire to try to use it with that service. I want to be able to connect it to any service that offers me a good deal. Most of all I am interested in how they work and learning how to mess with them. It is not hard to figure out that cell phones have assumed an immense importance in the world that we are living in. If you knew how to fix them, even just a little that would be a big thing for a person like me who is going to be going in to the job market in a couple of years.

Most of all I would love to be able to stay out of the job market, which you could do by having a skill which allowed you to make good money without having to answer to some guy who wants to tell you to wear a suit and tie. I definitely would like it if I could just wake up any time I felt like it, rather than being a slave to an alarm clock and a morning commute. If you knew how to wirte apps for iOS operating systems, android computers and the like, that is the sort of skill that could get you out of all of that mess. At worst you could end up making fifty dollars an hour doing it for a company and perhaps you come up with that big idea, like Flappy Birds or Angry birds or some such thing.

Xiaomi adds another former Google executive to its team

Xiaomi-Mi3

Chinese hardware manufacturer Xiaomi has added another former Google executive to its team. Jai Mani was a strategy and analytics associate for Google Play during his days at the search giant. The new hire will lead Xiaomi’s product team in India. According to Hugo Barra, who has worked with Mr. Mani in Google, he will be the connection between Xiaomi’s rapidly expanding user base in the country and the company’s engineering team in Beijing. Xiaomi will soon set up an engineering team in India as well.

Xiaomi’s latest personnel move is yet another indication that the company is serious about expanding internationally and ramping up its presence in India and Southeast Asia. The company is making provisions to sell 100,000 units a week in India this month. The Chinese company wants to build products or applications that run on its cellphones aimed at a global audience from India, Barra told the media earlier this year.

Meet the Gionee ELIFE 5.1, the world’s thinnest smartphone

gionee-elife

The Gionee ELIFE 5.1 has set a new Guinness World Record for its diminutive dimensions — it’s just 5.1mm thick. Although it is currently officially the world’s thinnest phone, don’t think that the handset is merely a gimmick. Ok, it isn’t packed full of the latest hardware components — just 1GB of RAM, 16GB of non-expandable memory and a choice of TRU Octa-core 1.7GHz or Quad core 1.2GHz CPU — but those components are packaged together elegantly, surrounded by a magnesium alloy external frame and topped with a 4.8-inch 720P AMOLED screen.
