    Powerbeats Bluetooth Headphones stuttering audio

    I have a pair of Powerbeats bluetooth headphones. When synced to a Windows 10 PC the audio stutters about once every 10 seconds. The BT receiver on the PC is an Iogear GBU421 bluetooth 2.0 device purchased in 2009. I am wondering if the bluetooth protocol is too old to function properly with...

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    For anyone shopping right now I recommend carefully comparing the prices across models. For instance, I just checked and a 3070 FE is available at Bestbuy for $500 but could find no 3060 ti models below $500. Obviously the 3070 is a better GPU.

    Celebrate: I beat a game at the arcade! SF4.

    Just the credits, and they do not even let you enter initials for a high score. Still, it was such an achievement that we immediately left the arcade. Had to leave the place on a high point, lol.

    Celebrate: I beat a game at the arcade! SF4.

    So I was off on vacation for a couple of days with the wife. We went into a video game arcade in Santa Cruz, CA. Now, I had already played SF2 and SF 4 in the past, the latter on Xbox 360. So of course I knew the basics (combos, specials, super specials, etc). I managed to beat the game with...

    Not to get off topic but since people are commenting on Newegg being an unethical seller. Watch these for background info. I have never had a negative experience with newegg but have a family member who did.

    Anyone else got a 6700XT?

    How about some benchmarks? I was in the market for a 6700xt, but lucked out and got a 3060 ti instead. EVGA queue, only took about a year!

    Is a PS5 overkill on a 1080p TV?

    We have a 51" Samsung plasma TV, model number pn518500, and base model PS4. It was a great TV back in the day and still works fine. Since PS5, and even PS4 Pro, produce images at higher than 1080p, I was just wondering if this reduces the picture quality. In other words, do you need a 4K TV...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    The excellent Forza Horizon games have raised the bar on what I expect from arcade racing games. They are light years ahead of where Need for Speed is in just about every area.

    Review the game you finished recently.

    I thought they we were all excellent as well. Lots of bugs and crashes on Bioshock 2, though. And this was across multiple systems. And both the original and remastered Bioshock 2 ran poorly for me, buyers beware.

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Need for Speed 2015 PS4. Grade D (below average). Not much to like in this racing game. Graphics are awesome, really nice reflections on the wet ground. Lots of car customization. If you pay attention they even brought back a few songs from the very first need for speed game which was nice...

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    I think not. Used to be upgrading every 2 years, but the S20 Plus is holding up well. It seems the pace of innovation and improvement in smartphones has slowed down.

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    While it is informative to read these threads in order to learn about the causes of the GPU prices the truth is that nobody knows where the prices will go next. People have been speculating about this topic for years. I believe prices will someday normalize but have no idea when this will...

    Shenmue III Free at Epic. Hurry, one day only.

    Yes, I had to wait a while even though the game was in the shopping cart. Just completed the purchase a moment ago. Anyway, I think Epic is switching games everyday. So folks may want to keep an eye out since free games appear to be expiring at the end of each day.

    Nvidia DSR and GeForce Experience

    So, I went into the GeForce experience to see what it recommended for F1 2018. This is on a 3060 ti and 2560x1080 100hz monitor. It said optimum resolution is 3620x1527 DSR. Does this mean GeForce experience thinks that the 3060 ti GPU is basically too powerful for the monitor's native...

    Poll: Upgrade to Windows 11 in 4Q 2021?

    Just curious what people's plans are regarding the Windows 11 upgrade. I have a desktop and laptop, both compatible with the new OS. But I wonder if it would be best to wait for more patches before taking the plunge. On the laptop Windows update is listing the 11 update as optional install.
