    Pull the ram stick out and test if everything is working then something is wrong with that ram stick.

    Assuming this is the case it is probably best to run a memory test.
    http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20/memtest86 -4.20.usb.installer.zip
    Download that and run it put it on a USB drive then reboot put back in the ram and boot from the USB and run a memory test.

    Piledriver may/is worth waiting for.

    Well I would be waiting months just to get the money for the motherboard.
    So I would probably sell it no one in my family cares if we sell gifts.

    I would then sit on the money from it and wait for PileDriver.

    I am not sure why Intel jumps up to so many pins but AMD has only gone up 1 pin in recent years and the new socket really only brought more power control features.

    Surge protectors do nothing to protect you from a brown out.
    It is best to shut your computer down during them or use an UPS.

    Quote from battlekid


    No, not all the ISPs do that. Google as an ISP worries me greatly, they are well known for being careless with privacy.



    Please find me one ISP that does not log your traffic information for at least a month.

    Time Warner Cable

    Time Warner informed us that they store IP-address logs for up to 6 months.
    Interestingly, the company is the only ISP we contacted that also posts information regarding its data retention on its website.
    Comcast

    Comcast did not respond to our inquiries but has mentioned a 180 day retention policy for IP-addresses in BitTorrent-related court documents. On some occasions cases have been dismissed because logs were no longer available, meaning that alleged infringers could not be identified.
    The 180 day policy is also mentioned in the Comcast Law Enforcement Handbook that leaked in 2007.
    Verizon

    Verizon’s Privacy Office informed TorrentFreak by email that information about IP address assignments is retained for 18 months, the longest of all ISPs who responded to our request.
    Qwest/Century

    The Qwest/CenturyLink Law Enforcement Support Group informed us that IP-address logs are kept for approximately 1 year. As is also the case with other Internet Providers, Qwest/Century noted that personal details are only disclosed when the company receives a subpoena.
    Cox

    Cox failed to reply to our inquiry, but previously it has mentioned a 6 month retention policy for IP-address assignments in the press. In Cox’s “Lawful Intercept Worksheet” the company also mentions that logs are kept for “up to 6 months.”
    AT&T

    AT&T’s IP-address logging practices are not public. Initially the company did not reply to out inquiry, but upon publishing AT&T’s Privacy Policy Team promised to get back to us as soon as they find out how long logs are kept. We will update this article as soon as their response arrives.
    Charter

    Charter lists no information about their IP-address retention in its privacy policy. However, a reader alerted us to an answer on Charter’s website where it states that residential IP-addresses are retained for one year.

    Interesting, but who wants to live in Kansas?

    A boring, flat, land locked state.

    You'd need internet like that to distract from how terribly uninteresting your region is.


    Its not only in Kansas its in Kansas city it spans two states.

    Ocean sucks anyway and its not actually flat most of its pretty hilly.

    Better then the deep south.

    Wait you can control the tv with a tablet wasn't that one of the big feature of the nexus Q?

    Does it record it actually or just store it on the Internet?
    I am assuming it integrates with play and that kinda kills off the use of the Nexus Q.

    Does it use the internet bandwidth over fiber?

    I guess the Nexus Q would be more for people who aren't in the Kansas city area to get some of the features.

    soo..

    how do they plan to give everyone up to 1Gbit/s? it would require major infrastructure changes in most countries and or cities.
    also, i dunno if i like the idea of google being the owner of my internet connection...


    Ya my guess is Google will pay for it mostly off adds from the personal information you send over the net.
    But all the ISPs do this anyway.

    DNS crypt and https everywhere try to spy on my internet bitches.

    As someone who is moving to Kansas City this just makes the deal even greater.

    Hopefully its pretty cheap for 1gbps and they offer free static ips.

    I find that FedEx and UPS (from the US) are fast, but those $50 "customs" charges seem to be a bit of a scam.

    How is it that USPS + Canada Post can do it for $7?


    Not really going through customs can be a pain.

    USPS is owned by the USA government and I am assuming Canada Post is the same.

    How do you know he shipped it with UPS?

    Something from the US to Canada takes like 5 days D:


    Never said he did just saying that normal UPS or USPS for me at least gets here quick.

    That's some freakin' express shipping right there. 2 days.


    UPS the vast majority of times gets it to me in 2 days even if its 3 or 5 day shipping.

    Quote from FrozenOblivion

    My aunt dropped you iPhone 4s twice and the screen already has scratches and it can't turn off anymore (circuits are messed up or something). My mom dropped her blackberry torch 9800 over 40 times in the past year and it only has a few scratches on the sides, nothing work with the phone or the screen. Both of them don't have cases by the way.


    Smart phones tend to break more then dumbsmartphones like black berrys its just the way it works.

    The new one comes out in a few months.
    it's just on a different schedule like Nvidia and AMD.

    Think about how long the S2 stayed.


    Not really Moto updates usually on a 3 month or so basis.
    The S2 also got many upgrades during its life span it did not stay on the exact same hardware the whole time.
    While Apple sits for long periods of time.

    And iPhone is a year older. Quad-core in phones didn't exist back then. That's exactly what this thread is talking about, the new iPhone.
    The ppi is not better on the S3, it's better on the iPhone.
    iPhone build quality is better than Samsung's (not HTC's or Motorola's, but Samsung's)

    I'm not for iPhone by any means, I hate the software, but you have to stop hating. It's a year older. I do admit iPhone is still a bit behind in hardware, but still.


    Apples fault for not keeping its line updated.
    HTC build quality ha, I would take an Iphone over any HTC device especially the modern ones. Sammy may use plastic but they still feel better then any HTC device I have had the misfortune of holding.

    Apples biggest flaw with the iphone is the slow updates and the long cycle of them being out.

    Quote from TheSoulCraft

    Dude its 8 cores and like 4ghz what are you talking about.


    It also uses an arch that is not properly supported by Windows 7.
    Its gaming performance is also pretty pathetic and being a gaming community here we look down on it much harsher then say a forum for people who do render work all day.
    Just because something has lots of cores and a high clockspeed does not mean its fast.
