    Which iPad best for stroke patient ?

    Also this clamp on mount for her bed if there’s a rail to mount it on: Tablet Mount, CTA Digital... There was an open box for $30 a few years ago, so I have one at home. It stays in its position even with the 12.9; solid holder.

    Which iPad best for stroke patient ?

    I think if they got the big one and used zoomed mode it would be easier for her to use. I would maybe forget about having her hold the thing; get a case that is lap friendly. Something sturdier then this:

    Nicehash Excavator 100% LHR unlock!

    NVIDIA was hacked big time in March… probably just took some time to engineer a workaround with all the leaked documentation out there 😕

    Boeing 747s Use Floppy Disks to Get Critical Software Updates

    This. Boeing is the shell of an engineering company... the 737 MAX is the byproduct of a culture where people don't actually create anything, they just outsource the design work and attempt to act as an integrator / project manager. They've been downhill since McDonnell Douglas conned them into...

    Softbank Approaches TSMC and Foxconn for Potential ARM Buyout

    Don’t forget about that gem WeWork... all this VC money down the shitter that could have been better spent elsewhere.

    Blizzard Workers Share Salaries in Revolt Over Wage Disparities

    It's true... they reward loyalty and years of service with more work but no money. It's also fun when you get stuck at a small plant where the only way to grow is to either take your boss's job, become a plant superintendent/manager, or go work for "corporate" in another state. If not then it's...

    Sony gdm fw900 not turn on

    If you bought a monitor that the seller advertised as working, and it isn't, then file a dispute with the seller on eBay. eBay has come through for me a few times including with a $700 laptop that I found out was stolen. If the seller doesn't step up and provide a refund then you can ask eBay...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    ARRGGGGHHHHH. I'm still happy with my 38GL950G, but damn it why can't I have it all?! Maybe the overdrive tuning will be screwed up and then I won't feel as bad :P

    First ATX12VO Consumer Motherboard: The ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming 4SR

    Jesus guys... the motherboard manufacturers already have to do voltage conversion on-board for the CPU and PCH.... you really think stepping down 12V to 5V or 3.3V with the amount of current needed for NVMe and SATA drives is going to be that difficult? They have to design the newer boards to...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Most people just run at 160Hz so they don’t have to deal with that. You’ll probably notice it on the desktop but not in a lot of games. Maybe.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Agreed, it’s not bright enough to use as bias lighting. I shut it off and repurposed the luminoodle led string that was on my old 32” monitor for this one. Much brighter

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    For what it's worth I don't really ever hear the fan on mine. Maybe if I am up close to the fan grill.
