Google give play store, play services, etc. a special position in the OS - you can't stop it and you can't really limit it either. And no,...

Custom build, Ryzen. As you get more money you can put a decent graphics card in there, and also update the processor to a 12-16 core CPU...

Actually I kind of expect these processors to continue, with the new ones slotting in on top. At the same time I'd expect the prices to...

Well first I tend to transcode in slow time, so the format stored is one that can readily be played anywhere. However if you really want to...

If you use the month to month aldi plans then the higher ones have free international calls to certain countries, etc. eg XL pack is $35...

Aussie Broadband. They are generally the first choice anyway because of bandwidth and tech support - but they also don't charge a setup fee...

You're lucky you have to press next, the blu rays in my local machine only reach to one screen. I think the issue is they can closely...

These are usually pretty local to the place that originally went out of action - so don't be surprised if it doesn't work.

[@OnlinePred](/comment/5956352/redir): Depends on if you have some taste buds left. To me reigning in the peat etc. a bit allows the other...

A proper tipple, but be aware it is reminiscent of old ashtray and muddy boots. Be sure you know what you are letting yourself in for,...

Well MH 370 wasn't an accident either. If a pilot decides to end it all, he's capable of taking everyone with him, no matter the airline....

They used to be bad, but have got a lot better. Malaysia used to be OK, but cost cutting has made them worse. I've always considered Qantas...

Yeah, they're not even particularly cheap. I'd take the Laphroaig anyday, and even then there are better Islay for not much difference in...

Basically it doesn't exist. "Glen Marnoch" is a brand name for what ever batch of malt Aldi bought up to make it sound right and give it...

Aldi, basic sim with the 20GB data pack (365 day validity). Phone calls come off the credit on the SIM.

If they really had a 22% fail rate, then nobody would still be selling them - too much hassle. I'd expect the real number to have a decimal...

I'd be looking at putting something like unRAID on the N40L and getting some parity in there to protect the data. And you could also have...

We don't know what the new processors will cost, or indeed what the new MBs to go with them will offer. After all, this is effectively...

Don't forget, these are using the old 14nm dies. You can expect Threadrippers with the new 12nm dies to come out in the near term - so...

Note that from other news today, those cheapo plans are likely to get slower in October. NBNCo want to kill them it seems.

Generally I think an optical drive in a desktop is a sensible move, even if lots of people and manufacturers now avoid them. Not only are...

Note the small print on that $2 off rental is a bit weird. You have to rent two disks to use it, which means you still end up having to...

I'd go for a cheap android smartphone. I'd also put the google phone app on it, since it blocks spam callers. Some phones have the loop...
