Seagate to Discontinue 7200rpm 2.5inch Drives

No surprise here. SSDs are superior is speed and they're not that expensive anymore -> slow HDDs will remain the main platform for massive storage however. SSDs are unlikely to grow into 4TBs any soon.

Wrong: Don't buy crap. Without demand, it will just wither and die.

Anyone I talked to switched from 8 back to 7. People don't want it even if it was free. 8 is a sad PoS attempt to bring desktop and mobile together. I can only hope MS learns a lesson here.

What's a persistent pirate, lol
The neighbour kid comes over to play with my kids and when noone is watching he changes the WiFi config so he could pirate stuff via my internet connection? Or would that be me?

Only 225? A drop in the sea. By the time they get to the next 250, 500 will have opened.

Firefox OS phones to debut in 2013, no US launch until 2014

I don't see the point in these devices - they won't be competitive. They might hit a sweet spot but for a small market however.

Is there anyone left on Facebook? I guess people don't read or they're not concerned about their privacy until the s**t hits the fan.

Windows 8 forcing me to use a rainlender theme from years ago is insulting. Tiles/shitty desktop aside it really doesn't offer anything over 7 anyways. They've removed some things from win8 which is confusing. Will they go a modular route and sell them like mce? Reduced bloat for specific systems? Unlikely but who cares. I'm close to throwing my parents on an expensive tablet or linux/android in general with an arm/atom based cheap solution.

I don't use facebook personally but the wife does still. She uses it mostly for chatting through messenger if at all. I think I have a google+ profile or something though by accident but haven't checked since I don't use gmail except for the play store login/youtube.

Said Windows 8 would be shit and it is shit. Touch screen on a home PC? Fucking stupid. On a laptop even that we have around that have touch screens, I don't even use. As for screens supporting touch, I can't even get a LCD in town here that is greater than 1920x1080 much less a fucking touch screen. I plan to stay with Win7 for a long time still and I really don't see games saying Win8. Essentially they are the same OS so whatever works on Win8 should work on Win7.

@Firefox phones, I said that in their thread when it first appeared and said, be prepared to lose money. Firefox phone wont compete with Android much less iPhone and I doubt it will even scratch BB sales. It's a desperate move by Firefox imo.

@Facebook, have never touched that crap. If I got a profile it's from my wife who made it to cheat farmville or something. I use Google+ at the very least.

I'm not sure what mozilla is doing but they've been around since netscape. The whole netbook chromeOS thing died awhile back. The mobile market if it changes will likely be because of something like ubuntu or windows phone. If google can take motorola and offer up a unified experience as sort of a standard while keeping the open ended nature I think they'll stay on top. They're just all over the place like always.
