My Mind to Your Mind, Your Thoughts to my Thoughts

I’m back

After a long stint away, I am back.

Lots has changed. I am a degreed Chemical Engineer, and I have owned two apple products (WHAAAT).

Let me start with expressing frustration with technology. I recently purchased the 2013 Apple Macbook Pro Retina 13 inch model. One of the first things I did was set up my mail accounts, mail crashed.

I am tired of the mantra that Macs do not crash, and Windows does. They are equal here. I thought it was pretty interesting comic relief.  The notebook then became unresponsive, or at least the keyboard and trackpad did. Apparently this is a known issue. I expect more from Apple.

I like the Notebook, I can write a formal review later perhaps.

I also run a Windows desktop, of which I love. Upgraded to 8.1 and am having a pretty swell time. I am an 8 lover , not hater, despite that, there are issues here too.

I snapped IE11 next to another app, then IE freaked out.

Snapping the Xbox Music App next to the Bing News app, makes some of the news article unreadable. How does this stuff get past QA?

My windows 8 PC is also my gaming PC. Picked up BF4, which is a great game, but severely bugged, once again another frustration with technology.

LVLCAP does a great job at explaining the issue. Netcode is awful, frequent server and client crashes.

Nvidia drivers are awful, the latest WHQL 331.65 gave me artifacts, possibly ruining my GTX 680.
