    Turning Off Wi-Fi And Bluetooth In iOS 11's Control Center Doesn't Actually Turn Off Wi-Fi or BT

    Bluetooth is the big absolute NOPE and if you discover it's enabled on your phone, you are required to report it to security immediately. Honestly, everything truly boils down to the honor system; you are being trusted to do the right thing and follow protocol when you are granted a...

    Turning Off Wi-Fi And Bluetooth In iOS 11's Control Center Doesn't Actually Turn Off Wi-Fi or BT

    That's....not how it works. Computers are used to process classified data, albeit on an "air-gapped" network. There are certain areas where personal electronic devices are absolutely prohibited (vaults, SCIFs), but generally, employees are allowed to bring personal electronic devices into...

    Turning Off Wi-Fi And Bluetooth In iOS 11's Control Center Doesn't Actually Turn Off Wi-Fi or BT

    This is a disaster for anybody who works in a classified environment. You're not allowed to have wi-fi and bluetooth enabled, so anyone with iOS 11 is at risk of a security incident if they don't realize this.

    HD Retrovision Component Cables for Genesis, SNES, Saturn, etc.

    Right, depending on how you upscale, there will be input lag. The Framemeister uses a frame buffer to perform its upconversion, so there's like a 2 frame latency there. However, the OSSC is a line multiplier and has no frame buffer, so the latency is 1-2 scanlines (essentially no latency), but...

    HD Retrovision Component Cables for Genesis, SNES, Saturn, etc.

    "Fuzzy pixels" weren't necessarily due to the CRT, but because of the awful video quality that most people would see via RF or Composite video output. Furthermore, for people who value accuracy/faithfulness, playing on the console itself is superior to playing on an emulator, in spite of all of...

    HD Retrovision Component Cables for Genesis, SNES, Saturn, etc.

    I've got another item on order, the OSSC (open source scan converter) that is essentially a line multiplier that takes Component, VGA and RGB Scart as inputs and outputs via HDMI, so that won't be a problem. I'm currently using a Sony CRT HDTV (30XS955).

    HD Retrovision Component Cables for Genesis, SNES, Saturn, etc.

    www.hdretrovision.com So, first off, no I don't work for these people, nor am I affiliated with them, but I just picked up these component cables for use on my SNES and Saturn and I must say, wow. If you have a decent TV and like retro gaming, you must get these. Here's a quick comparison of...

    Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    You can use sapphire, rubies, topaz, and diamonds to upgrade the various circlets. Sapphire = cold resist circlet, Topaz = lightning, Ruby = fire, diamond = guardian resist.

    Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    None of the dragons can be killed that I'm aware of, and the only one you have to clear corruption from is the one on Mt. Lanayru. I also agree about the snowball bowling. Seems like it's better to just go around and farm ores, but I don't know where a good place to find them consistently is.

    OneDrive "Runs like a Dog" on Windows OS Rivals

    As a onedrive user, I feel like it runs like ass on Edge/IE too. Every time I need to go through my camera roll to select a bunch of pictures for something, it drives me insane how shitty the performance is.

    Nintendo Switch

    Any reason you wouldn't just want to get a USB-C cable and pair it with a flattish battery pack instead of lugging the AC adapter around?

    new dreamcast hdmi box - looks good!

    Wondering if this is actually any better than getting a catch all device like the OSSC Upscaler.

    NES Returns!

    I was able to get one recently....I hooked it up, played a little mega man 2, and then disconnected it. I guess it's cool, but I realized I just don't care about most of the games on it (right now). Nice to have for collection's sake, though.

    T-Mobile Battles Verizon Unlimited by Rolling Back Tethering and Video Throttling

    You don't need to pay anything to get unlimited international data. The only negative is that it's capped at 128 kbps, and I think there's an option to bump it up to 256 kbps if it's not standard now. I recently spent a month in Taiwan and having that was indispensable, despite the speed.

    Plex server and Mu-mimo wireless adapter

    I've been wireless on my plex server for the past year without many issues. Other than USB drivers being flaky, the speed is good enough to stream 1080p to one client. Not sure about simultaneous since I'm the only one using it. As long as you're getting 100+ Mbps, you should be okay. I was...
