>/g/ thinks they can simply boycott Google
That is never going to work, most normalfags are simply not willing to boycott a service like that for no other reason than they dislike them. Hell, look at Microsoft, every normalfag loves to hate on Microsoft but they still use their services anyway. For normalfags it's 99% convenience 1% principles. If fucking PRISM didn't change people's opinions about Apple/MS/Google then this won't either.
Now I'm not saying google is invincible, but the only way to truly defeat them would be by making their search engine obsolete. Most of Google's products/services are mediocre, the search engine is the only good thing, and it's what started it all. All other Google services are secondary, this is their core. Come up with the trillion dollar search algorithm and their entire empire will crumble.

>tfw use Xubuntu as daily driver
yeah it's difficult but worth it I think. I have people always tell me I'm strange or "they're going to have your info anyways", or even better "I like the convenience of having an assistant in my pocket who can read my emails and set reminders in my calendar"
we're going to be stuck in this rut for awhile until online advertising dies
I am interested in recording game audio with audacity (among other things) and I am a total newb with the program.
I already have the recording device set to "Stereo Mix", so I already have my computer's audio playing back through audacity. Now for the questions:
1. When recording audio, is it best to turn up my audio high enough to where the audio is playing at the -9.0 to –6.0 dB range (as recommended by Audacity's website) or should I record the audio at a listenable level, then amplify it once the recording is done?
2. How can I get the best quality out of my recordings? Does it all lie within the project rate? If so, what is the best rating I should set it to?
I would also prefer to save these files in FLAC for archival purposes, so there's that.
This game in particular is Wario World, so it's a gamecube game. I guess I should research the sample rate of gamecube games?
Also, is there any way that I could record the game that loud without actually hearing it that loud as I record it? I can always take my headphones off then blast the audio up but it would make this process that much more annoying (and this process is tedious as it is)
I had to send my ASUS motherboard off to be repaired it only lasted 7 months when they received it they said there was physical damage to the CPU pins. I don't remember any damage when I said it because I put the CPU cover in packaged it very well with bubble wrap so where is the bent pen that they're talking about in the picture? Now they want to charge me for a refurbished board
First they wanted to charge me $130 but I got them to go down to $84
Are they trying to scam me? I really don't have another $400 for brand new bored what should I do?

Do I really need this to get a fucking job that pays $20 an hour?
I work at Bank of America and want to climb the corporate ladder to some sort of Sysadmin or dev position. I'm going to school for Computer Engineering, what do you guys think?
>climbing the corporate ladder
That means management you fucking retard. If you want to remain a wage cuck code monkey, by all means get your little certificate and then marvel at how unimpressed the big guys are.
You walk into the computer store and this guy slaps your Thinkpad.
What do you do?
Looking to get one of these but before I take the plunge want to hear what you /g/uys think.
Are these as good as they say or is it just a meme?

why are all autocopy addons on firefox such shit? seriously, the idea seems so simple but everything i've tried is buggy
is it time for me to learn how to develop a webextension?
Looking to get a new router and maybe even a modem, what'd you recommend? What kind of specs does one look for in a router?
Who else on time Warner cable and bought their own modem or router? I think cable modem. But with Wi-Fi.
I am confused now.
Is their something more recent considering this shit came out in 2013 lol
Woah man, if it's .NET don't do that. Start with Channel 9 videos, there's a complete intro course that's constantly updated. Then religiously goto MSDN. Especially now with Core, so much code has been deprecated this year its insane.
Thoughts about cloud services, do you use one?
I use google drive's free to 15 GB to back up critical folders - pretty useful.
More specifically, what does DRM (esp. DRM in HTML5) wrong? I personally think it's OK to support artists by paying for movies, for example. I mean, I don't break into a cinema, I pay for a regular ticket.
Why do Linux users hate Netflix? It's not like they are forcing you to use it .. if you dislike DRM, just don't sign up for Spotify or Netflix. It's that simple.
On a related note, current "security" systems like Flash should die in a fire. They are insecure. I'd much rather trust a browsers built-in DRM than Flash. So in the long run, built-in DRM might make browsing more secure.
If people don't support artists, artists go bankrupt. I know that it is incredibly hard to pay your bills as an independent artist. So this is why I am against piracy.
Again there are exceptions to the rule like media companies charging for every single frame or something. Just leave those websites and don't watch the video then, what's the problem?
Most people are fine paying money in exchange for some entertainment, unless they're poorfags/entitled and just want everything for free. The idea people don't like is spending $500 on your Steam library of 250+ games only to get banned by Valve and lose access to all of it. That's why people don't like DRM. Normally it means your payment is for "access" to the product and the company reserves the right to limit that access however they see fit.
Alright I understand this issue for games, but for HTML5? I mean, this feature will mostly be used for streaming videos. If the video site doesn't provide the videos I want, terminate the subscription and let the money speak.
On the other hand, movies are a one-time thing, mostly. While I do rewatch movies from time to time, most of the time I watch a movie once and be done with it. So it's not like they can erase the movie from my brain once I've watched it (like you could do in a software - restrict access to the files you've created).
If you however pay for movies (in a system such as Google Movies), where you don't actually get access to the movie but trust the company that it will grant you access to the movie - that's on your stupidity, not a problem of DRM. Trusting companies that they will always have your movies available is likely to end up badly.
So...how fucked am I /g/...huh!?
