Chromebook Pixel 2015 Review: Great Laptop, One Big Problem

​What is wrong with these people? Writing a review, or in this case, a video journal review explaining just how great the product (Chromebook Pixel) is but then dist-ing it by the fact that it is "so much more expensive" than the competition?​

​Excuse me, but this Pixel is in direct competition to such laptops as the Macbook Pro so it is completely in the ballpark and yes, it can compare to the Macbook Pro and in my opinion, destroys it! I know because I own both Macbook Pro and the 2015 Chromebook Pixel (i7-16gb version).   I am still waiting for the perfect review where they not only compare but agree with what I have been saying ever since I took mine out of the box.​

Windows Defender disable is reset after latest Windows Updates

It appears the Windows Defender defeat tweak that I posted last month is reset with the most recent Windows Update build. My guess is because this most recent update is pretty much a complete rebuild of the Windows 10 Operating System.   Although it only takes a few seconds to fix once again, so far it seems to only be required if you used the registry tweak (for Windows Home systems).  The group policy edit which is available for Windows 10 Pro systems doesn't seem to be affected.

    No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

    Note from John C. Dvorak

    Remarkable Show 777 on Schedule for Tomorrow

     

    Producers,

    Hopefully you all enjoyed the No Agenda Funnies that ran on Thursday. And in the process, if you got one healthy laugh out of it, help the show to continue by donating today for tomorrow’s show 777.

    Needless to say a lot of news happened over the last week that needs discussion. And you should note because it is show 777 you have your last opportunity to help celebrate by contributing:

    $777 to become a very exclusive member of the 777 Club and Executive producer.

    $77.70 to show ongoing appreciation for the show.

    $7.77 because you can easily afford this level of support.

    Any amount you feel like contributing by clicking here for the open-ended donation.
    The fabulous Pokemon 777 stills flies! And offers another Mile High Club offering. Click on Plane.
    Help put the show back on track after a slow Thanksgiving Holiday week in the USA. The rest of the world marches on although Thanksgiving has a negative effect on everything worldwide. I say this because I watched a lot of Canadian TV over the past week and the Canadians have adopted the ludicrous Black Fridayshopping gimmick even though Thanksgiving in Canada is in October! The second Monday in October, to be exact.
    The rest of the year will be all about selling stuff right up until Christmas and probably for a week after that. Look for an increase in native advertising and fake news. In the meantime support the show.

    I’m behind in promoting poignant pics and here are some great ones. Enjoy.
    New Bavarian Police Uniforms remind everyone of Spaceballs, the movie. Imagine being from Syria and seeing this!!
    This 1920's proposed future cop will be useful in the EU to stop the refugees.

    Apple iPad Pro Claims Its First Victim As It Destroys Google's Flagship

    ​This (mad) Englishman is just that.. completely mad, to even attempt to compare the ipad pro to the chromebook pixel.. Although I don't own an ipad pro, I do own 3 other ipads and I do own a pixel as well as 2 other chromebooks and a Macbook Pro.. The pixel is by far, the best computer I have ever owned​. You can't compare an ipad of any type with a computer--it simply can't be done. The ipad for starters, requires an add-on keyboard.. yes, I do use the apple bluetooth keyboard with my ipads and I love it, however the ipad is still a walled garden thanks to the Apple infrastructure so until that changes, you simply can not compare an ipad to any computer. 

    Sometimes when I read  (and watch/listen) to these reviews I can't help but to think how much of shill this people are for the product they are reviewing.. not an honest review by any means. Spend more than a week with the product and get yourself in to situations where you need to, lets see.. transfer something by plugging in a flash drive or SD card.. oh that's right, you can't.. how about flash? nope can't do that either.. go ahead, jailbreak your device, then you might be able to do a little more but you still can't get 12 hours of battery life out of it.. pixel does..in fact I have reached 12 hours 20 minutes on mine and that was using wifi all the time!

    The review video is 6:17 and they never even get to turning it on!

        Still running Windows Vista? A new computer may not be needed!

        Although they are definitely the minority, I do have a few clients that are still on Windows Vista.. the thing is, these computers are performing well and most certainly meet all the necessary requirements to run the latest Windows 10 operating system.  They may not be eligible for the 'free upgrade' by performing the "normal upgrade' process however that doesn't mean it can't be done.. need more information or would like to get me to get this done for you, simply contact me and I can help with the diagnosis and upgrade if necessary.

        No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

        Note from John C. Dvorak

        No Agenda. There is nothing like it.

        Dear Producers
        Looks like today is going to be very slow because it’s Thanksgiving Day week and listenership and support wane for a few weeks. No matter, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving there is show 777. Imagine doing that many shows that are so important to understanding the events and news of the day with a realistic and fresh perspective. Help us celebrate with the 3 open 777 variants.

        You can get a double producership for $777. Then there is the thank you contributionfor $77.70 (which should be more popular) and finally everyone should afford $7.77.
        And every can make up their own donation, or subscription, by clicking here and contributing anything at all.
        A lot of great stories of piling up for tomorrow’s show including some Climate change action involving bad numbers (again) jiggered together by NOAA to prove nonsense with an agenda.
        This site debunks the nonsense that October was the hottest ever. This should get your attention. They also blast NOAA.
        A bigger stunner passed by the desk with a lost-in-the-shuffle story that ran in theFebruary 10 edition of Investor’s Business Daily which reported on a UN climate change press conference. Let me pull these two paragraphs for you:`
        At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

        "This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution," she said.
        If she comes out and just says it like that, then it must be OK. She’s is not trying to fool anyone unless this is an outrageous hoax..

        So if you take her at her word, you can better understand why it’s appears to be a political debate, and not about science at all. And, indeed, it lines up as a political debate. There are a lot of scientists caught in the middle unable to fathom why they are all being badgered.
        U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres, Not a fan of Capitalism.
        Of course your No Agenda Show has been on top of the realities of the debatestarting with the original Climategate that began in November 2009 when climate researcher’s emails were hacked to show that the numbers were intentionally rigged and falsified.

        That whole thing now seems to be totally ignored as the alarmists continue unabated. They have since turned climate change into a religion, as discussed on No Agenda. People actually ask, “You don’t believe in climate change?” As if a belief system is involved. What kind of a question is that and who notices these things better than yourNo Agenda Show?
        The show needs your continued support to keep No Agenda broadcasting. Help today.Stamp out cognitive dissonance!
        Your co-host,

        PS And thanks to those of you who decided to set up payment plans via online banking or who just like to send checks. Remember, it is No Agenda Show, Box 339 El Cerrito, CA 94530

        PPS Everyone can afford a dollar-an-hour for the No Agenda Show. Compare what you pay for other entertainment including audio books. Here is a special offer.
