    I have both an Intel HD 4600 GPU (Core i7 4790k CPU), and Radeon R9 285 card in my desktop. Anyways, since the HD is pretty much unused I decided to enable it in UEFI settings for the purpose of running OpenCL stuff on it. Anyways I'm looking for software that can take advantage of OpenCL.

    Mozilla Firefox asking for user donations - huh?

    Too bad I can't rep due to the forum this thread is in. Anyways, thanks. GUIs certainly have their place, but the CLI is more efficient for some tasks. Always liked being able to just use a command in Linux to install stuff.

    Mozilla Firefox asking for user donations - huh?

    Firefox kinda sucks anyways. It always pauses any code executing in tabs that are not active, which breaks some web apps (Chrome does not seem to do this). If Mozilla wants revenue, maybe they should fix Firefox?

    Smartphone screen size

    True... for me personally 5.1 inch seems to be about perfect. I have a 12-inch Surface Pro 3 for any tablet needs.

    Smartphone screen size

    I just got a Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V, and I love it. It is about 5.1-inch screen and borders on being a phablet, but still fits nicely in my pocket.

    Intel Core i3

    What is the point of the desktop Intel Core i3? The Intel Pentium is more than enough for mainstream type use, and for other uses I normally see the i5 or i7s used. The PCs at school I go to for example use Core i5 mostly. I rarely even see i3s on desktops.
