[ubuntu] Help interpreting SmartCTL results. Did I buy a bum drive?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I bought a 'no brand' hard drive off eBay sold as new never used. It's a 10K RPM 150GB. I have been experiencing a rash of random segfaults and other bad behavior on my new ubuntu 12.04 box (C2D, 4GB, HP dc7800, etc.) I ran smartctl on it to test it. The results can be seen here: http://pastebin.com/RgkjpQEw 2 things stuck out at me. 1) ID#9, the disk total life. (Hardware)

Water damaged my SGS3, where to go from here?view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I accidentally dropped my brand new phone in some water, and I thought it was dead at first but after a couple days it booted fine, but the battery seems to drain pretty fast and it also periodically vibrates when it's off but the battery is in. I want to get it replaced but I'm not sure what my best options are. Can I sign up for Asurion insurance and get a replacement with a deductible? (HowTos)

LG 4x HD Fits the Galaxy S II desk dock! Plus my customcar installview story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I ordered a cheap desk stand from eBay, for the galaxy SII and the 4x HD fits perfectly! I also customised a dock for my car, got fed up with trying to squeeze the phone into a rubbish looking universal mount, then connecting a trailing cable. So I hid the cables hard-wired behind the dash, and dremel'd the dock to shape, bent it with a hot air-gun, clamping it in a vice. (HowTos)

Camera Lens Protectorview story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Not sure if anyone has concern about scratching the camera lens, but I don't like taking chances when there is such an easy solution. I cut down a screen protector to a diameter a little larger than the lens so that all edges remained under the battery cover. I placed the screen protector over the lens with the battery cover off, then reinstalled the cover over top. Presto: lens protected. (HowTos)
