Samsung Series 9 15 inch ultrabook – Bloatware removal

Samsung Series 9 15 inch ultrabook – Bloatware removal

More posts about this laptop¬†here,¬†here¬†and here. The downside of an Ultrabook is the small hard drive. ¬†One of the downside of the Windows ecosystem is the OAMs can install a bunch of useless software, also known as “Bloatware”. ¬†Samsung didn’t fill this machine up with that much bloat, but with this small of a drive, every kilobyte counts. So the system shows that out of the 128 GB SSD that only about 89.1 GB is¬†usable. ¬†Of that¬†paltry¬†89.1, only ~58 GB…

Their ads worked on me, I flew Southwest to avoid fees.

Their ads worked on me, I flew Southwest to avoid fees.

I am a bit of a road warrior, I do a fair bit of traveling for work. I have been rather loyal to my airline of choice and their star alliance partners. But when I had to book a flight at the last minute for a family emergency, I thought long and hard about the carrier I choose. My main concern was that I am not exactly sure when I need to come back and a round trip ticket was…

Sennheiser CX300-B Earbuds

These Sennheiser CX300-B Earbuds (Black) ear buds just arrived on my door. I plugged them in to my Ipod Nano and was surprised by the great sound and noise cancellation (I had to switch to the small plugs). I have the stereo on and a small space heater next to me and I can’t hear either with the earbuds in. The cord is long enough. the only thing was the packaging. It was one of those crappy plastic blister packs…
