schestowitzExactly. The problem is they assume most people are too ignorant to care about "technical stuff". In other words: they think we're dumb. And most people don't really care. Apr 21 12:14
schestowitzAnyhow, even with "full" info on a back it's still not really a full info. It is usually very general info about "technology behind series A/X", not about specific manufacturer, or even architecture.Apr 21 12:14

schestowitz"I hope they stop that kind of stuff soon. It's not just x86 anymore. Architecture is important."Apr 21 12:14
schestowitz"Of course it is. I've spent countless hours trying to figure out exact arch and and type of the CPU used in one of the tablets I wanted to buy. So yeah, it's that bad."Apr 21 12:14

schestowitz"The answer is: way too long. Actually, they should only keep it as long as the processing of the message/instruction goes. No more than that. And no, they don't need it to improve their services for other users using these very recorded messages. This could be always achieved by saving results to the text files with logical "0" or "1". Keeping the whole recorded voice instructions doesn't make any logical sense, because it Apr 21 12:37
schestowitzneeds to be pre-processed again everytime you want to use it [... in order to "improve" other people's service]. Thus, the real reason they keep it so long has nothing to do with usability/service improvement."Apr 21 12:37
