    Frustrating Apple calendar issue

    The only way I know is the “official way” Open up calendar Tap the button on the bottom that says “Calendars”. Select the calendar you want to get rid of by pressing the “(i)”. Scroll to the bottom and press “Delete Calendar”. It would be the same process essentially on the desktop.

    Questions about music files listening from iPad Pro 10.5

    1.) Like all things, it depends. How well it was encoded is more than just bitrate like B00nie noted. Also it will depend on your level of discernment and your level of audio gear. Headphones aren't necessarily the only way to tell the difference, it's just that really nice speakers and...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    That isn't true. The issue with Satellites in general and Starlink in particular is that they reflect light. It's compounded by being in low Earth Orbit and the sheer number of satellites necessary to blanket the Earth's surface. This has been talked about at least to some degree and is...

    Windows 10 machines running on ARM will be able to emulate x64 apps soon

    The list itself is the evidence. Even by your own statement, you're at minimum acknowledging greater performance per watt out of ARM, which isn't insignificant - in fact quite the opposite. That's an incredibly important metric. ARM is the only architecture I know that has 15% or greater...

    Windows 10 machines running on ARM will be able to emulate x64 apps soon

    You are at least peripherally aware that the number one super computer in the world is powered by ARM right?

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Just upgraded my keyboard. Got it literally today, and I feel like I'm still getting used to it. But anyway, that said: Keychron K1v4 Full Sized w/ Gateron Low Profile Browns - Logitech MX Master 2S

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    I don't think we're talking about even close to the same things. I summarized that near the end of my post. Although Epic isn't EA, the premise of what you're talking about is the same. EA/Epic advertisements are basically splashiness put into a 15-30 second long ad and spammed throughout...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Look at this thread. This is essentially about media content regarding information for this game. (That we've been receiving piece by piece in live segments over the past several months) Look at the past several major gaming conventions, notably CP2077's 40 minute game play demo. Look at the...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    This game has had hype for 8 years. So I'm not really sure what you're talking about. You can literally just check news articles throughout the development. There isn't anything remotely like this in the gaming space. Whether you personally will like it or not is an entirely different thing...

    8TB HDD - 5400 or 7200?

    The answer is yes, it will be slower. How much, or should you care, comes down to you. Likely it won't matter for you other than when you're actually spending the time transferring over all your 2TB stuff to the 8TB drives. It might take literally hours to move that 2TB to your 8TB drives...

    If you don't raid, why not?

    I realize now that you're talking about raids in games... On topic - I only played MMO's during WotlK and prior to that, I played FF XI for 2 years. I raided WoW as much as I could (having to resort to pubs) - but I eventually quit because the game was taking too much of my life and even with...

    HEVC/H.265 Encoding

    Compression isn't magic. You give something up in order to have smaller file sizes. Most notably image quality. But you also certainly will not have any form of positional audio, definitely no Dolby Atmos, nor even 320kbps level mp3s (likely you're at 160kbs stereo audio if you're lucky...

    Apple Event Reveals iPhone 12

    The whole phone will be a night and day difference. I moved from a 6S+ to a XR around a year and a half ago. I almost went with a XS Max, but opted to save the money. Even without the extra camera or larger size or OLED screen, still a massive change. It's going to be a lot all at once (in a...

    iPhone 12 Pro and Max

    Logitech G815 G915 Alternative?

    So I was able to pickup a Keychron K1v4 full size with the low profile gateron browns. Got an alert via email and the crazy part is the RGB LED models sold out in 45 minutes - just before I pulled the trigger (and this was at 1:45AM!). So, I got a white LED model only, which honestly I...

    Which camera to buy for indoor home tutorials ?

    The internet is great. Formalized education is being erroded constantly by it as the information for basically everything is freely available. My entire photography/videography career is based on this free education. For sure. Whatever camera you buy, you'll probably want to mess with its...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    Sure and if that is priced at $100,000, are you saying we consider that to be cheap? In either case I wouldn’t consider that level of pricing to be at the mid range or bottom end of the market. And unlike your illustration, the Dell does feature actual technological improvements that are...

    Which camera to buy for indoor home tutorials ?

    I will note that if you want to do this a lot cheaper and want to use automatic modes that are simple, you could just not go down this path at all. I may have illustrated too well, that going down this path - there's a lot of info. A camera like the Sony ZV-1 might be a better choice for you...

    Which camera to buy for indoor home tutorials ?

    Public speaking or even speaking in front of a camera isn't a skill set I have. It takes a lot of work and talent to be good at it. And I watch people do some type of public speaking every week. Yes and no. If you want the best the camera can provide for you then you'll have to set it up...

    I'm really bad at taking compliments, but I'm trying to get better. I'll just go with: thank you! (Oof that was scary). This is a function of Aperture, not based around whether it has a big zoom range or not. Aperture's are listed as one of the specs on the box of any lens you buy. For an...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    The great irony is that CP2077 looks like it will have better driving mechanics than any GTA game and obviously those games have their core centering around driving. And that's not even including the idea of every car being unique, with different handling characteristics, and using real car...

    iPhone XS Max vs 12 Max pro screen

    I moved to the XR from a 6S+ about a year and a half ago. Honestly if the 6S+ didn't have a camera problem I'd still be on that same phone today. But Apple did give me $250 trade in; normally I'd sell my camera on CL or Swappa or here to get more money - but Apple gave me roughly what the...

    Which camera to buy for indoor home tutorials ?

    Right. The workflow for this isn't that you zoom in or out. You move the camera. In the photo/video world, the very old joke is: "zoom with your feet". In the example of all the work shot of Brent Southcombe above, it's all using this principle. All of it was shot handheld or with a gimbal...

    iPhone XS Max vs 12 Max pro screen

    If you're upgrading for pure display improvements alone, then it's probably not worth it. Both displays support DCI-P3. The big headline feature of the 12 Pro is HDR 10 support (it also now supports Dolby Vision and HLG). However most content in general isn't HDR 10 (or Dolby Vision, or HLG)...

    Apple Event Reveals iPhone 12

    My post sort of covers this, here it is again. I also expected Apple to also implement LTPO with high refresh rate. LTPO basically is dynamic refresh rate, allowing 1 Hz while the screen is on and not being touched and not showing any animated content. Then as soon as its touched (or any...

    Apple Event Reveals iPhone 12

    Not everyone likes MOBAs. Frankly I don't know what Fortnite or Apex Legends really looks like because those titles don't interest me either (due to the Apple/Epic lawsuit I have seen some char models from Fortnite - seems kiddy). But these are all popular games in the right circles. There...

    iPhone 12

    Like others, I'd say the biggest omission was lack of "ProMotion" display. 90Hz or 120Hz with LTPO. Paired with a 180Hz or 240Hz polled touch sensor, it would feel incredible. It's a super weird omission too; because I feel like Apple in general tries to push display quality and they've fallen...

    tl;dr at the bottom. If shot properly any of these options will give excellent results - you could pretty much use any camera to accomplish this (even looking "professional"). Equally as important will be sound and sound quality (I recently started learning music production for fun, and man oh...

    any canon lens out there that makes no noise when it focus at video mode?

    Your response doesn't really make sense to me. Do you want to not have motor noise or not? Do you want to even have sound or not? The short response is: basically everything you do makes noise, including quiet movie sets. "Noise" is generally eliminated by having a microphone as close to the...

    This trailer will make you want to buy a Xbox Series X, and the $4 a month for GamePass Ultimate should seal the deal!

    "Were". While $2.99 might be an overstatement, basically every triple A title I've purchased I've done for <$10 by doing what I mentioned in my post. Which is waiting 2 years +/-. This includes DX:HR/MD and the Mass Effect series. This also has the side benefit of having 2 years worth of...
