    Why have a 12TB NAS device with USB2 ??

    Wow, did I just magically zoom to a DailyTech post disguised as a TechReport shortbread?

    As an aside, I’m in love with Intel X4500 integrated graphics…they finally put some horsepower in so the TVPC really works good without a discrete card.

    At the end of the day if you think BUSH was the worst part of his 8 years in office you are more ignorant than you already sound.

    I thought today (November 9) was supposed to be the launch day for the GTX 580. Where are the reviews?

    • sweatshopking
    • 10 years ago

    “Fudzilla reports George W. Bush owns an iPad” If that doesn’t prove their bad, I don’t know what will.

      • ManAtVista
      • 10 years ago

      I always find it ironic how much energy people expend bashing Bush, but give for instance, the Chinese a complete pass. Murderers of 120 million people in the last 50 years, not worth trolling everytime there’s a chinese story. But everytime there’s a Bush story, we have to frantically and mindlessly attack the man, less one single person doesn’t hate his guts. But that’s because ‘liberals’ are so smart, and I’m just too dumb to understand the logic, right?

          • bittermann
          • 10 years ago

          I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again..The worlds biggest threat is China…hands down. They have the numbers, evil arrogance and backwards selfish thinking to do something really stupid.

            • Grape Flavor
            • 10 years ago

            Backwards thinking, lol. If they’re so backwards why are they a rapidly rising star and our nation is in decay, huh?

            I view most China bashing as the futile efforts of a country ravaged by chronic mismanagement and stupidity to find an external force to blame for their own incompetence.

            It all comes across as a bunch of bitter butthurt that the Chinese have figured out how to effectively (not necessarily morally) run a country, while all we can do is act like bratty kids and point fingers at each other.

            The world’s biggest threat to the United States is the United States, hands down.

            • bittermann
            • 10 years ago

            Sorry but if condoning the lack of human rights via torture, murder and oppression is your idea of progress your a flipping idiot…

            If you live in the US and think it’s crap then get the h*ll out and go live in wonderful china…if you don’t live in the US then I guess you are just as much of a blowhard as the rest of us.

            • BoBzeBuilder
            • 10 years ago

            Can’t say I disagree. Instead of pointing the finger at everything they don’t like, America needs to take a good look in the mirror.
            Their broken politics and “corporations” are going to hurt them far worst than the Chinese or Russians.

            Edit: Woops Reply to #11

            @#18 you moron, read his post again before you get your panties in a bunch and telling him to GTFO.

            • bittermann
            • 10 years ago

            Yeah I’m a moron but you are an idiot as well. You all cry that US is imploding but don’t do anything about it except bitch and scream my country sucks, blah, blah, blah…If you don’t like it help change it for the better or GTFO.

            • BoBzeBuilder
            • 10 years ago

            Other than bitching and moaning, I like to be able to “recognise” the issues and be realistic, instead of waving the flag like a delusional ignoranus.
            I don’t live in the US, but things look more discouraging for America the more time passes.
            Not to say it’s going to implode, or it’s the end, but “progress” is what I sadly do not see.

            • blastdoor
            • 10 years ago

            I think the world’s biggest threats are ignorance and unenlightened self-interest (enlightened self-interest isn’t so bad). It seems to me that China and the US each have their fair share of both of these things. In the US, I’d say Sarah Palin (much more than George Bush) is the personification of these threats (Bush is kind of ignorant, but I don’t think he’s guilty of unenlightened self-interest). I don’t know enough about Chinese politics to identify a single person to represent these threats, but these threats are definitely evident in some of their policies (currency undervaluation and massive military build-up spring to mind).

        • Grape Flavor
        • 10 years ago

        I think what’s bad, besides the inability to move on and focus on our current problems instead of obsessing over Bush, is the personal attacks.

        A better example of irony might be: The American voters, after witnessing the obvious devastation of eight years of Bush/Cheney policy, returning to the polls to elect the same failures back into power.

          • OneArmedScissor
          • 10 years ago

          You mean politicians? You know, those guys with the “two parties” who are so different from each other that they wear the same thing all the time – business suits.

          Eight years of “Bush/Cheney policy”…several of which immediately preceding Obama’s term with a Democrat majority in congress. Yeah, I’m sure it was all two peoples’ fault.

          Irony is people attacking one side and showing a bias towards the other when they’re the same damn thing and don’t give a rat’s ass about you.

            • plasticplate
            • 10 years ago

            Completely agree with OneArmedScissor…strange that even most educated people cant see through this. They may have two different parties, but if there is one common factor, its that you get screwed all the time. Best thing would be to ignore the politics, do ur job and make sure you think forward for u and ur family and stop wasting time debating which side is better than the other. Besides, with is so much happening in the tech world, why would u even care about politics………unless some troll started this……oh wait, was that first post by SSK….oooooooo……well played SSK, well played *BOWS*

      I’ve quit clicking vr-zone links. Kaspersky keeps some script from loading. The page takes forver to load and then freezes. Can’t scroll until I hit the back button. Not sure if it’s something to do with their fancy Twitter sliding tabs or something malicious….

    The Eight Is Enough VII. VR-Zone link is throwing up a malware warning screen. Hmm, never had this problem with VR-Zone before.
