The Tech Talk Thread

Someone had to create this thread at some point and here it is. Consider this thread the home for all discussion relating to non automotive tech.
The discussions that at times have made The Amazingly Off Topic thread seem more like a techie chat room should now happen here. This is the home for it going forward and as Nick says "There's no place like 127.0.0.1".

Since this is a subject that some folks get fairly passionate about I just want to once again make my time worn admonishment to

PLAY NICE OR DON'T PLAY!

For the rest I will shamelessly plagiarize what Ben so eloquently said when he began the US/World Issues Discussion thread:

"From now on, please refrain from discussing these topics in other threads.

Now I'm going to lay out some ground rules here:

1. If there are ANY personal attacks, the thread WILL be locked until everyone cools down, and individuals will be reprimanded if need be.

2. If I or another moderator feels as if the discussion is getting out of hand, the thread WILL be locked until everyone cools down.

3. I can't stress this enough...If the discussion gets out of hand, the thread WILL BE LOCKED!!!

So lets avoid locking it, shall we?

Ok guys and gals, have at it!"

That all said:

Let Your Geek Flag Fly!


It's SHO time!

We know who'll be frothing at the mouth from that statement.

To be on topic my iPhone now doesn't play music while I'm on the internet (eg. Browsing craigslist).
Another fault in the looooooooooong list of software and hardware faults this overpriced piece of junk has.
And the kicker: it's only 6 months old. Headphone jack is already completely messed up.

I'm starting to hate Snapchat's bugs in it's software. I want to get a notification when someone sends me something, not when they start typing!

Sounds like what I tell people at work........ "I found the problem.........it's the chair to keyboard interface"

I've come across WAY too many people at work that keep asking me what I think they should get for a phone because they can't stand their Iphone. Love my Samsung.
