I got ultimate stock alerts-USA for short, get it? NOW, I'm so rich I'm banging on 6 babes, spend at least 4 hours drinking and having a good time at the casino every day, and have a new BEEMER, black with tan interior-which I park in 3 spaces. THX USA

"Ordered a 64GB unit this afternoon. Amazon is going crazy on their site with lots of vendors bidding up the price and Newegg is already sold out in some models. This is good news for Intel."
[Woo Hoo, the Intel smartphone invasion is picking up speed!]
Altera has already budged. At least, its large shareholders. They're going to take the money and run. Altera management is learning whose company it really is, and it's not management's. I wouldn't blame Intel for playing a little hardball with them now, but 20's is not gonna happen.
I will support anyone taking a few minutes to trash these spammers. I spend half of my time on yahoo reporting them and ignoring them. It makes the boards almost useless. A side benefit is it might detract some ignorant users from actually clicking on their pay per click links.
Probably because the neighbor in question does not exist and is just the usual trollbait for the regular basher that is ITBMA. As if people can't just look at long term charts to see price action and they need a fairy tale to remind them, duh ...

"bought INTC in November 2003 for 31.50. He told me yesterday, what a fool he has been to hold it for 12 years getting a 1 buck long term gain and 3% dividends."
Not saying it's the best that could be done. But certainly better that a savings account.
Why didn't neighbor sell at $37?
PCMark is a benchmark that emphasizes real world tests. It performs actions like playing and seeking within videos, writing text and into files, etc. All of these are race to sleep scenarios where the CPU should run at its high frequency for a short period and then return to a low frequency to save power. The quad core Atom Z3580 with its 2.33GHz peak frequency pulls ahead of every other smartphone, including the Galaxy S6 which was the previous leader. I'm very impressed with the ZenFone 2's performance here, and it does indeed translate into the same real world tasks that PCMark runs.
A perfect storm led Wells Fargo Bank………
A perfect storm led Wells Fargo Bank to empty out all the funds from my wife bank account!! Here’s what happened to her, we are sharing this story in hopes that it won’t happen to you too. Detectives were investigating a criminal case in a nearby city and the culprit happened to have a same name as my wife. The sheriff’s Department gave the defendant’s name and birthday to Wells Fargo Bank, asking them to withdraw all the funds from the culprit’s account. A careless Wells Fargo employee matched the name, but NOT the birthday ( which is standard practice and common sense!) –there is a big difference between October 2 and May 26. Because the oversight, Wells Fargo blindly emptied out my wife’s bank account, leaving us with a zero balance. As a aging middle class family to take of, this prohibited us from buying the everyday essentials that we need to live for eight days. Not to mention, the fear that a law enforcement authority believed that my wife, a hard working waitress at restaurant, is involved with illegal activities. We contacted the involved parties and the Sheriff Department conformed the error that Wells Fargo made and told us they would reach out to the bank to remedy the situation. A few days later, the money was deposited back into my wife account, but the situation had already caused much personal distress. A Wells Fargo executive named Daniel admitted the mistake and apologized, but did NOT say they would investigate the matter or tell us how they would prevent a similar error in the future. Simply, they don’t feel the pain—we do. And we didn’t do anything to deserve this. I hope this inspires everyone to diversify your money to multiple account and DO NOT use Wells Fargo Bank. They have horrible service, incompetent employees, and do not care about their customers. Please tell your friends and loved ones. Roses given, fragrance in hand.
"The 3DMark benchmark has both GPU and CPU components. In this test the ZenFone 2 does surprisingly well, with a score that sits among the newest flagship devices."
"Overall I'm more than pleased with the performance of the ZenFone 2. It's not even worth comparing it to other phones in the $200-300 price range, as it performs at the level of last gen and in some cases current generation flagship smartphones."
"Based on the time I've spent using the ZenFone 2 so far, I'm impressed with what ASUS and Intel have managed to create within their price constraints. In some respects, the ZenFone 2 competes with phones that cost substantially more money. In others, it doesn't do quite as well, but it usually outperforms other devices in the $200-300 range by a significant margin, and this is where its real strength seems to lie.
There's a lot to like about the ZenFone 2."
"In terms of performance, the CPU is competitive at times with this year's fastest flagship devices. Apple, Qualcomm, and Samsung should probably be a bit concerned about ASUS and Intel's efforts to get this kind of performance into devices that cost only $200 or $300, as it significantly compresses the gap between them and $650 flagship phones. Meanwhile the GPU is similar in performance to last year's flagship smartphones and tablets. I think the GPU should definitely be the main area of focus for Intel with future SoCs. Otherwise compared to more similar phones in the $200-$300 range, the ZenFone 2 is well ahead when it comes to both CPU and GPU performance.
Based on what I've seen so far, the choice between the ZenFone 2 and other devices at the same price is looking to be an easy choice if you're concerned with performance first and foremost."
"But don't let yourself be deceived by the price. The ZenFone 2 has some extremely impressive specifications for a low cost smartphone, launching with a fairly powerful Intel quad-core Atom SoC, 2GB+ of RAM, and a 5.5" 1080p IPS screen."
"In terms of construction and build quality, I like the design of the ZenFone 2. The chassis reminds me a lot of LG's larger phones. It curves to a very thin edge, has very thin bezels, and places the volume rocker beneath the camera on the back of the phone. The materials make it look distinctly like an ASUS product, with a brushed finish that reflects light in interesting ways."
"For anyone who really wants to order the ZenFone 2 now, I'll conclude by saying that it's definitely not perfect, but it's still a good display. I think it's by far the nicest one you'll find on a phone that starts at $199 purely because of its resolution."
"While it's not unheard of to see one of Intel's Atom SoCs in an Android device, this is the first time I've seen it in a smartphone with such wide availability. I'll be talking more about x86 on Android in the final review, but the main point is that the nature of Java applications means that users don't need to be concerned about whether their device uses ARM, MIPS, or x86."
"The overall score in Basemark OS II paints the ZenFone 2 in a good light. Its performance when considering every aspect of the hardware ends up being in the same range as the 2014 flagship smartphones. Some of the newest devices pull ahead, with the Galaxy S6 being very far ahead due to its UFS memory. All the devices ahead of it also happen to cost upwards of $500, $600, and even $700, so ASUS and Intel should be proud."
"Actually the fact that you have posted over 16 times in just over two hours is what sucks."
[Actually that you've never gotten over being fired by Intel is what sucks. And that you've been here ever since crying, moaning, whimpering and complaining.]
