  • Handling the Spam

    Status: Acknowledged

    As a regular IdeaStorm user, I have spent a lot of time walking through and reporting pages and pages of obvious spam. Here are some suggestions as to how we could handle this: Require moderation of first idea/comment. This approach has proven very effective on other forums. Throwaway spam accounts become ineffective as the spam never appears on the site, only showing up in the moderation queue. The downside is that good ideas from a new user have to wait for a moderator to approve them; the small group of moderators we have may struggle with response times.Implement a spam filter. Frankly, the Axis Capital spams are getting old, as are the meaningless ugly random-number and repeated-phrase spams. I believe that a Bayesian approach could go a long way towards cancelling out these spams.Add more moderators. All that is required is the ability for a minor moderator to hide posts until a Real Moderator can verify that the post or comment is a spam. This is low-risk moderation power because it is non-destructive and very easy to control. These are just some ideas I have come up with, I'm sure there a lot more great ones out there. Feel free to comment with better suggestions or caveats that I didn't notice!

  • I think Dell should refresh their Precision line as it looks very outdated. How about if Dell introduces SLI/CrossFire option and Precision Graphics Amplifier?Hence, options such as Dual AMD FirePro M6100 or Nvidia Quadro M6000 in-a-Precision Graphics Amplifier will be available.Precision laptops are comparable to Alienware. At the same time, heavy desktop professional GPUs such as Quadro K5200 will always outperform mobile professional GPU.Highly mobile users should be able to choose multi-GPU setups while less mobile users should be able to pair heavy GPUs to their Precision.

  • Is it time for Dell to jump back into the Smartphone busines

    Status: Acknowledged

    This has been an idea that I wanted to share ever since I started applying for positions within Dell.  While not employed yet with Dell, but working as an Engineer within a Telecom company, I ask myself is it time for Dell to jump back into the smartphone business.  Dell left the smartphone business officially at the end of 2012.  But before I go forward with my argument, I wanted to see the response this generates…maybe none……maybe yes they should….maybe no!  I will be writing my opinion and ideas on the subject matter on the following points: To go forward with this idea, has Dell learn from the past? Can they compete in this new market? Can Dell create and design a great smartphone that will sell? What type of mobile strategy can Dell develop and execute successfully? How do you get buy-in?

    Build some monitors, gaming and Ultra-sharp monitor with this G-sync or Free-sync technology from Nvidia and AMD. I love Dell craftmanship on their monitors and I know there will be demand for these type monitors.
