    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.

    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...

    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?

    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.

    WoW Classic 8/27. Beta is May 22–Thurs May 23

    Sure but people that started say 5 years ago don't know what original vanilla was like in Wow. They think everything's broken. So it's funny to see them saying it's too hard. I get it though. I left wow and moved on to FFXIV.

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    I'm going to wait for the 16Core release the 8 core and 4 core chiplets isn't what I want. I want the 8 and 8 core chiplets. It will happen. Note I am running 64GB of DDR4 on a 2700X(4300mhz) ram at 3000mhz. I have not heard if the new CPU can support more or not?

    Texas expected to ban red light cameras

    Ours in Michigan are heat sensors pointed down from polls on the coners of the street with sheilds around the front. They look like camera's kinda but they are just giant heat sensors for traffic red light control. Gets green to come up much faster especially late with no one around.

    Texas expected to ban red light cameras

    That shorting yellow light times comment above is accurate. My city did it and caused many deaths and got sued. We dropped the redlight system and increased the yellow by a full second from the original yellow time and now our accident counts are FAR lower.

    Eye-strain with new monitor - how did you deal with it?

    When I switched from my 3 27's I moved to a 34 Inch Ultrawide LG. Its the same height physically as my old 27's and I moved up to 1440. When switching make sure to ponder the vertical realaestate volume. Also, any increase in rez may require using features in windows such as large text mode.

    OLED burn-in is real

    Yea for something your watching news or sports constantly with markers on the same point of the screen I would just go simple cheap LED TV. No real worry if it happens to one of them in a few years they are dirt cheap anyway.

    On a side note. What was everyone's 1st Dedicated Graphics Chip? Cirrus Logic 5430 PCI 1MB upgraded to 2MB. omg... I know! (of course, this discounts the Apple 2C's 65C02 as it wasn't dedicated to graphics.)

    Intel's 9th Generation Core Family - R0 Stepping

    Intel’s 3-8% improvements marketed as new “Generations” of processors is what allowed AMD back into the game. I now wonder if ARM will have any say about this market. Time will tell.

    Intel Shows Off Graphics Card Designs at GDC 2019

    Intel has never had stellar driver support. Especially in the video cards or integrated video card side. So I have zero faith that even if the product works that it would get proper driver support. Has anyone suddenly heard about Intel hiring AMD/Nvidia Videocard driver personnel away?

    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    I am quite happy with my 2700X and don’t really see the need to upgrade to 7nm immediately. Im thinking wait for DDR5 and the gen later and then do a ground up rebuild. My AMD Frontiers on water have been doing just fine powering 1440 ultrawide.
