Re: 1349: "Shouldn't Be Hard"

Silicon atoms create very simple crystals. Industrially processed silicon for CPU usage comes in incredibly pure boules. Besides actual semiconductor dies, laptop components easily reduce to grit, simply blend until desired texture.

Re: 1328: "Update"

What's even more annoying is when an update does not require just a reboot, but a series of them (see: os x software updates)
