    How long do you use your phone before you replace it?

    Looks down at my 3 yr old Iphone. The only function that is impeeded is the speakerphone. Everything else works. Thus why spend a grand on a new one.

    Rise of Skywalker

    I clicked this to see some of your comments. I havn't even watched the trailers.. nor will I even go to the theater to care. TLJ taught me that I don't care what Disney thinks about Star Wars.

    Would you quit your job to finish your videogame backlog?

    So if the user is a teenager quitting his grocery store job for extra money above his allowance so he can play videogames on mommy's dime. Sure live it up while you can. The rest of us like things like housing and food and cloths. Yes you can study up for wilderness training and go all...

    Cities protesting 5g

    You realize the exact same thing was said about digital modems in phones instead of analog. Oh less range not as good of signal, I'll never give up my Motorola Razor.

    What was your first pc?

    The question is interesting. What is yours? What quantifies as a PC? My parents purchased a Sears Intellivision and an Atari 2600 and an NES are they PC's? Most of us would say no but.. is that really true? Anyway lets move to what we would more traditionally call a PC. My parents...

    Despite what AMD says in drivers, did s.o. test Ryzen 3000+Windows 7

    Depends on if you have to support that person.

    Who's planning to buy 5700(?) GPU

    I was considering a Navi before the launch. However, I don't feel its worth it. I have twin Vega Frontier 16gb. I'll keep hanging on until the replacement for Vega VII happens.

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    PCIe 5.0 is in beta spec mode atm. As is the norm when a spec finally goes to market. PCIe 4.0 is now set. The only thing missing for me on the X570 is DDR5 support which I figured would be done by now. But hey other than that it works. I am just going to buy a CPU though and drop it in my...

    Is a used CPU worth more or less if it has been lapped?

    Lapping a IHS is not the same as Delid. Where are you coming from exactly? Regardless I disagree with that as well. If a properly delided Intel from many of the series that Intel did a horrible job with the under IHS compound job was already done and the cpu was validated as fully functional...

    Is a used CPU worth more or less if it has been lapped?

    depends on if you are selling to one of us. We arn't the regular ebay consumer.

    Engadget: Apple finally reveals the new Mac Pro

    higher-end staffs and the big wigs that do nothing more than use Outlook but want the computer to 'look nice' for when VIP's are escorted past the front-office staffers. I see this at my office. Only people with Mac's are those exact people.

    Engadget: Apple finally reveals the new Mac Pro

    While I think it looks great. The short NVME and only 2 slots for the entire storage capacity? The selections and specs seem odd but I do understand this design started quite some time ago so intel was sharing with Apple what they "would" be making in the future. It seems so end of generation...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    Industry insiders are showing even after a year Intel not catching up for up to 5 years. If that turns out to actually be true. This could be like the Core era was for Intel but instead for AMD. Centrino, Core , Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, I7 was where Intel dug out from AMD and destroyed them...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    Ah, I see it supports 128GB via the new 32GB single sticks. I wonder what the old boards will do since the 3000 can run on X370 and X470 if suddenly the new memory controller with bios updates will change the ram support.
