    Avoid kit kat for now

    What phone do you have, and are you running a stock carrier build, or custom ROM? If custom, they can vary widely from ROM to ROM. Also, kernel can sometimes make a difference with battery life.

    Constant "Not Responding" lag!

The update after that states that it was for "Improve system compatibility" (whatever that might have fixed). I would also read up (check their official forums: Official GIGABYTE Forum -...

    7zip

    I know the thread resurrection was done by a spam bot most likely, but thought I would throw in a recommendation on the off chance someone other then a bot reads this. =) I use PeaZip [peazip.sourceforge.net] because it covers most every type of file and it's cross platform (and free).

    chrome freezing

    Sounds like a hardware acceleration bug/issue (haven't used Firefox regular ... ever). But on Chrome you can check with about:flags in the URL bar.

    News Windows 8 Pro costs $40 if you're running XP, Vista, or 7

    I thought I had read not to long ago that they were allowing people to upgrade ONLY from Windows 7. I guess they must have looked at the numbers and saw more XP then 7 users.

    News Apple CEO on friending Facebook, educating Siri and killing Ping

    Everyone knew Ping was DOA from the start, and I could care less about Siri. My interest is in why Apple would want to get mixed up with a sinker like Facebook when everyone sees it's downfall in the distant future.

    News Apple releases Flashback fix

    They need to remove Java from default install. :) Also much of the trouble come from them making their own Java VM instead of leaving it up to Sun (now Oracle) to take care of.
