New Puter annoyances

So, I got the new laptop (blogging from it right now baby!) and I have to say, every time I get a new computer I am absolutely amazed at the amount of CRAP that comes pre-installed on it that nobody wants.

Note to computer manufacturers: no one wants this shit, and they especially don't want it all set to autorun when the computer starts up.

It's like buying a new car and the first thing you have to do is get a bunch of cigarette buts out of the ashcan and a bunch of crap out of the glove box.

To complete the analogy, what you'd be getting out of the glove box would be junk mail the car company had been PAID to leave there for you.

Nice work computer companies.

But other than that, I love the new puter. I love having something portable. And Civ 4 looks fabulous running on this machine. My last puter wouldn't run it at all, and the one before that could only run it with the graphics turned down to the lowest setting.

Great looking game.

There, I ended on a positive note.

Preloaded junkware on computers - don't expect Dell to change it, it's one of the ways they keep their costs so low - on some configurations they could actually give you the computer for free and still make a small profit on it from all of the junkware they were paid by advertisers to preload.
