Windows 7: Not all impressed with clearwire

Not all impressed with clearwire

A little over a year ago disgusted with my then current ISP I decide to take over a Clearwire wireless internet account. You can do that for someone so they don't eat the contract. It was a 1.5/256 account.
You have to get a new modem, you can't just use an existing account's modem. Whatever, but wouldn't it save the isp's trouble - oh nevermind. Moving right along the new modem arrives in a timely manner. Within a month it would clunk out at 3 bars, they had to replace it. Seems to be a sensitive thing, the power adaptor does not like surge protectors either. Once your account was up and running they clocked it down on me to 768, nice. But! - If you renew for an additional year you can bump it back up, too cool.
They use g-mail, n/p, I like g-mail & the multiple calendar editing. You get 3 addresses. Decent help on how to set up live - mail. Nowhere, and I mean no where on your account log on page can you get details about when your contract will expire. Lost the old e-mail or paperwork? You have to call in to confirm that info. If you miss the window your up for another year no questions asked. If you decide to cancel your bound to the remaining contract price. They do make that "clear", pun intended. Still want to cancel? - You have to make sure you ship their modem back (if under the rental) and in their possesion before the expiration date.

**UPDATE** Its has been suggested that my CPU may be bottlenecking my GPU. If this is true, please make a CPU recommendation. From my research, evidently AMD sucks and I should get a new MOBO and CPU to get the most performance from my new GPU. I recently upgraded to a 680 4gb from a GTX 560...

Not impressed with HD TV
I have been resisting buying an HD TV for my home because when I go to the store and look at the TVs, I see (IMO) very high prices with only a marginal improvement in picture quality over SD TV. The other day our 18 year old 32" SD TV bit the dust so I gave in and purchased a 40" HD TV. I got...

Impressed so far
Hi all, Installed Win 7 last night and am amazed by how simple and trouble free it was. Installed onto my Acer 6920g laptop, install was smooth with no SATA driver issues. Driver installation was minimal as most of them worked fine out of the box, other than me updating the chipset, audio...

Not to impressed with Win 7 yet
Ok, I have been testing the capabilities :geek: of Windows 7, both x86 and x64 for quite some time now, (since Nov 2008:sarc:), starting with the first release v7-7000 to the latest v 7-7100 on as many as 6 different computers. Some old :sick: (x86) hardware platforms and a couple of fairly new :D...
