Off to camp

I’ve been slacking on posting things just because school has worn me out. I am off to summer camp (yay?) for a while. That’s my excuse for not posting things for the rest of the month.



I like playing video games.

HD life?

I have an HD with 1104.3 days on it. I have noticed that loading is much slowed now compared to a few months ago. There has been no software changes in those months. I am wondering how long Hard Drives usually last? If it matters, my HD is a “supper fast” HD from the time before SSds. It has been my boot HD for a long time. Should I replace this HD with an SSD soon or does it have some life left in it? Thanks!

How long do Hard Drives usually last? WDC WD3000GLFS-01F8U0 ATA Device with 1104.3 days or 3.02 years on it.

I’m staying on Windows 7

As much as I like windows 10, I cant say I would use it as a daily driver.

I hate the UI. There is no areo affects.

They have simplified it to much. You can’t even change the themes anymore. You have to dig through many settings to change your screen resolution. Explorer no longer has the full “C:\users\” is just has “(yourname) > file > file

There are a lot of minor things that i hate. Just the overall experience was not good for me. It’s hard to explain. I really just like Windows 7 and i think I will keep it. I will reserve Windows 10 for all my PCs but I think I will go back after a little while. The only devices that I will keep on windows 10 will be the Windows 8 devices (tablet, sisters pc).

Uses for android device with broken digitizer

I just broke my Nexus 7 2012 screen. My laptop was in a backpack and my Nexus 7 was under it. The screen was shattered right where the micro usb port is. The digitizer dead. Now, I recently bought this Nexus and I don’t want to get rid of it. I don’t want to fix it because I could buy a new Nexus 7 with that money. I just see no point in buying a new one.

Just because your device does not have touch response anymore, it can still be used.

Here are some uses of a device with a broken digitizer.

I have a Micro USB to USB adapter. I can use a mouse with it. I have hooked up a mouse and from there connected a Bluetooth keyboard. For gaming, I connected a PS3 controller to my device. If you are interested, look it up on google. Then go to the Android TV game section in the Play Store. You can download most of the games in this section and use a game controller to play the game.

I use this device now for watching YouTube videos, Netflix, Hulu, and playing music. I also use it for my chrome cast. Although the main reason of me having this device has been mostly defeated (gaming), I think I will be able to use it until I rack up enough money to buy a new tablet. I don’t have any intentions of buying a new tablet any time soon.

I am sad that my Nexus 7 has broke but I am happy my laptop is still okay. 😛
