  • My 2 1/2 year old iPhone 5s had been wonking out the last couple months and I finally replaced it a week and a half ago. Have found iOS extremely annoying anyway (on my iPad 4 too) so should have ...
  • That does indicate the end of the line for it. Thanks for the link. My iPhone 5s had to be replaced last week, at only 2.5 years old, due to escalating hardware issues (failing on/off switch, sound ...
  • Will your iPad 4 still be supported by Apple with security updates once iOS 11 is released, or does all support shut off? I ask since I'm in the same boat with an iPad 4 and would like to hold off ...
  • My 5-6 year old Garmin Nuvi has been great and the earlier software worked fairly well on my 2009 iMac. The newer Garmin Express software wasn't much different in that it was very slow to download ...
  • +1 for Faststone.
  • Seems pretty fast. One thing they refuse to correct is being able to automatically jump to a new tab once it's created - unless I'm missing something it always ends up in the background no matter ...
  • Didn't buy this particular system but the $99 Square Trade deal is a no-brainer. You have 60-days to buy it at Costco and I waited until I was sure I wanted to keep the laptop. The HP I picked up ...
  • +1 Have used this before also and it works well.
  • Update...Naturally, once I deleted the Ubuntu partition the time offset recurred while trying other distros. When I got Fedora installed I was happy to see it didn't affect my local time at all. ...
  • It doesn't appear there will be any choice. Not only that, as businesses are forced to commit more resources to upgraded systems, more IT personnel, significantly tighter security oversight, and ...
  • Have worked closely with IT personnel in the past but your point is clear. My rant may sound a bit black and white but consequences like you mentioned are happening anyway - in a much less ...
  • +1 It's not the fault of Microsoft, it's a cost vs risk balance being exploited. Unfortunately, the landscape is changing (has already changed) dramatically and millions of users are being burned. ...
  • At first I though I'd definitely need an external monitor for photo editing on my 13" 3200x1800 panel, but just sitting closer works much better than expected while editing in Lightroom and GIMP. H ...
  • If you do give it a shot let us know, I'd be interested in hearing how it goes.
  • It is more than twice what I paid for mine. ;-) Mine was 25% off list so that was enough to get me to bite. Costco's 90-day return policy was important - especially since I was moving from OS10 and ...
  • Yes, it seems many distros offer a similar range of desktops now. Interesting you mention printing. I was pleasantly surprised it recognized my HP wireless printer right away, grabbed the right ...
  • Intel i7-7500U @2.7GHz x 2 Yeah, it seems faster than some of the others. The ISO is only 1.4GB and it installed quickly, once I figured out Anaconda. It does use more system memory than Ubuntu ...
  • Had already done a couple of these but had forgotten about Dconf editor, which may be useful. Thanks for the link.
  • Way overkill for me but looks like a very nice system, and who doesn't like $300 off! I bought my laptop at Costco this past winter, partly for that extra year warranty, the 90-day return policy, ...
  • Created discussion thread Trying on Fedora...again
    As recently highlighted in another thread, I’ve been having difficulty re-installing Linux on my Kaby Lake-based HP laptop. It’s partly my fault for not leaving well-enough alone, but the fact ...
