    Windows 11 beta thread

    Windows 11 just rolled out its official beta release. If you are in it, what are your thoughts on it? I was in the Dev channel but will be reinstalling Windows 10 and going with the beta channel instead. Surprisingly I haven't had any problems beyond a few minor inconveniences. I don't really...

    Apple M1 SOC platform discussion

    Apple announced the M1 chip today along with a refreshed Macbook Air, Mac Mini, and Macbook Pro 13". Lots of big claims and loaded phrases like "Up to 5x faster than the best selling computer in its price range" have me a little worried. I'm also split since I like Macs for enterprise and...

    Dear Nvidia,

    https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/398186/rtx-3080-nvidia-store-availability/ I'm sorry, what was that? You say you care and that you were doing everything you could to prevent bots from buying-out right? Where's the captcha in your store? Where's the...

    Pop_OS! 20.04 releasing soon. Loving the beta so far.

    18.04 didn't play well with me so I have been using 19.10 for a while. I wanted to get on an LTS version so I jumped in the beta for 20.04 since Ubunbtu 20.04 is being released today. So far I love it, its been every bit as solid as 19.10 for me. Good stuff, I highly recommend it. Especially if...

    Lian Li customer service

    Is amazing. I have an o11 case from them. The bracket that holds on the glass panel fell off (its glued on). I emailed their customer support and heard back the same day. 3 pictures attached to an email later and they are shipping me a new glass panel. I just wanted to bring this up since we...

    LG V60

    Backwards compatibility in the next generation of consoles discussion

    With the new Xbox and Ps5 news trickling in, it seems like the rumor mill is spun up again on backwards compatibility. The lack of backwards compatibility for me has been a huge issue with me investing in consoles much. Xbox One had a very limited selection of backwards compatible games with...

    Private Internet Access sold to Kape Technologies (a shady company known for bad privacy ethics).

    Kape Technologies is very well known for their lack of privacy ethics, selling user data and including malware/spyware in their software. Here is a snippet of their TOS (Credit: /u/VADept on reddit) Needless to say, as a 8 year customer.. today will be my last day with them.

    After years of fighting with carriers, Google rolls out RCS.

    https://www.blog.google/products/rcs/upgrading-messaging-android-us-rcs/ Chat features are already available for some of you in Messages, and today we’re starting to broadly roll them out in the U.S. If you already have Messages, you’ll also be prompted to enable chat features in the coming...

    World of Warcraft Classic

    Whos playing? I thought I'd log in, remember everything that sucked about it, and then log off. Instead of played a couple hours last night, played during my lunch hour, and can't wait to go home and play more. It's a feeling I haven't felt in a long time.

    How do you like updating your kernel.

    I just got an intel AX200 to replace the killer wireless nic in my XPS 15. I dropped it in and booted into Pop Os to find there wasn’t a driver. No big deal though, I looked into the documentation and Intel says they will support it in kernel 5.1. I grab the .deb’s from Ubuntu’s site and install...

    Jony Ive leaves Apple

    https://www.ft.com/content/947e557a-98a8-11e9-8cfb-30c211dcd229 This will be interesting. I don't know how much say he has had in current Apple products, but I do know some of my favorites from them have been designed/influenced by him.

    Pop!_OS confirms continued 32bit library support.

    This distro continues to amaze me. Hands down the best distro I’ve ever used. The only thing I miss just a little bit is the AUR, but not enough for me to switch away from Pop.

    Google created an iMessage like messaging system called "Chat".

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/18/business/google-rcs-protocol-chat-android-imessage/index.html Finally. Especially since RCS is pretty much a bust since individual carriers liked screwing with it so you couldn't use it to send RCS messages outside of their network, or just straight not enabling...

    Private Internet Access 2 and 3 year deals (2yr $60, 3yr $80)

    I've been using PIA for years now with not a single complaint. The client works on all my Windows, Mac, and Linux boxes with simple setup. If you don't want the client, it works great using your own or just setting it in your VPN settings. 2 year - $60...

    Apple finally releases the new Mac Pro

    https://www.apple.com/mac-pro/ Looks good. I like the logistics of the case design. I don't do music or video creation/editing so it wouldn't make much sense for me to get one, but its nice that they finally released it.

    Another Pop OS thread.

    How is this distro so good!!? I literally can’t find a single tiny bug to bitch about. Literally. I have been running it on my laptop for about 3 months now and it’s been great. That’s kind of cheating though since Linux has been very simple and forgiving on my laptop. I’ve tried to get Manjaro...

    Micrososoft Edge Chromium

    Anyone else using the early versions of this? I have been playing around with it this morning and I am very impressed. Its really fast and I get pretty much all of the conveniences of Chrome. I've slowly been removing Google from my life and I know that Microsoft doesn't exactly have a good...

    RCS. How is it working for you?

    Anyone here use RCS? How is it working? I know it’s kind of a new tech that hasn’t had a lot of usage yet but I’d love to ditch my iPhone and iMessage permanently, and RCS will let that happen if it’s as good as it sounds.

    iPhone XS and XS Max Benchmarked: World's Fastest Phones (Again)

    https://www.tomsguide.com/us/iphone-xs-iphone-xs-max-benchmarks,review-5745.html Not much new here. Apple chips have been faster than snapdragon and intel year after year. I wish they would lower the walls in the garden a little so the SOC scan stretch its legs a little more without jailbreaking.

    Wine 3.0 released

    https://www.winehq.org/news/2018011801 Now with D3d 10 and 11 support. This (theoretically) opens up a lot of titles that are holding people back from switching. Should make it a lot easier to get Witcher 3 and GTA 5 going.
