    Which iPad best for stroke patient ?

    Also this clamp on mount for her bed if there’s a rail to mount it on: Tablet Mount, CTA Digital... There was an open box for $30 a few years ago, so I have one at home. It stays in its position even with the 12.9; solid holder.

    Which iPad best for stroke patient ?

    I think if they got the big one and used zoomed mode it would be easier for her to use. I would maybe forget about having her hold the thing; get a case that is lap friendly. Something sturdier then this:

    Nicehash Excavator 100% LHR unlock!

    NVIDIA was hacked big time in March… probably just took some time to engineer a workaround with all the leaked documentation out there 😕

    Boeing 747s Use Floppy Disks to Get Critical Software Updates

    This. Boeing is the shell of an engineering company... the 737 MAX is the byproduct of a culture where people don't actually create anything, they just outsource the design work and attempt to act as an integrator / project manager. They've been downhill since McDonnell Douglas conned them into...

    Softbank Approaches TSMC and Foxconn for Potential ARM Buyout

    Blizzard Workers Share Salaries in Revolt Over Wage Disparities

    It's true... they reward loyalty and years of service with more work but no money. It's also fun when you get stuck at a small plant where the only way to grow is to either take your boss's job, become a plant superintendent/manager, or go work for "corporate" in another state. If not then it's...

    Sony gdm fw900 not turn on

    If you bought a monitor that the seller advertised as working, and it isn't, then file a dispute with the seller on eBay. eBay has come through for me a few times including with a $700 laptop that I found out was stolen. If the seller doesn't step up and provide a refund then you can ask eBay...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    ARRGGGGHHHHH. I'm still happy with my 38GL950G, but damn it why can't I have it all?! Maybe the overdrive tuning will be screwed up and then I won't feel as bad :P

    First ATX12VO Consumer Motherboard: The ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming 4SR

    Jesus guys... the motherboard manufacturers already have to do voltage conversion on-board for the CPU and PCH.... you really think stepping down 12V to 5V or 3.3V with the amount of current needed for NVMe and SATA drives is going to be that difficult? They have to design the newer boards to...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Most people just run at 160Hz so they don’t have to deal with that. You’ll probably notice it on the desktop but not in a lot of games. Maybe.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Agreed, it’s not bright enough to use as bias lighting. I shut it off and repurposed the luminoodle led string that was on my old 32” monitor for this one. Much brighter

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz is the only place you can buy this now at MSRP. I had a best buy open box order placed but it got cancelled :(. I went and looked some more at the other two LG 38" monitors coming out, and I don't think they will support strobing... might as well get the better one with g-sync...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    There's an open box on ebay for $1459 right now if someone wants to take that dive. Seller has free thirty day returns. I've been watching it for a week now... they've been steadily dropping the price $20 at a time. Someone buy it so I don't have to keep looking at it in my watchlist :)...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I am hoping it turns into the 34GK950F vs 34GK950G situation where the freesync version has strobing but g-sync does not. It happens sometimes but I'm not holding my breath either :)

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    What I found interesting about the TFTCentral review is that they measured approximately half the amount of overshoot of the TechPowerUp video review linked earlier. Makes this monitor look even better! Good review overall, awesome g2G response times... still want ULMB though. Wonder if...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I wish this monitor had ULMB. Would make it an easier buy so I could go to one monitor. Not sure if any G-Sync Ultimate displays have ULMB though? Phenomenal response time, 160Hz, would be a perfect fit for some strobing!!!

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Has anyone tested the HMDI port to see if it will run at native resolution and at 60Hz at least? It should be HDMI 2.0 right since this is using the g-sync HDR chip? I think HDMI 1.4 can only do 3440x1440 at 60Hz. Anyone try the supposed adaptive-sync support on the HDMI port...

    PC gaming is in a decline — and deserves to be

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    LG 32GK850F US Release? (Freesync 2 version of 32GK850G)

    Has anyone heard through the grapevine if the LG 32GK850F is going to be released in the USA or not? I see it was released in Asia / Canada / Europe earlier this year, but there is no listing for the monitor on the LG USA site and their sales support wasn't super helpful when I reached out to...

    New MacBook Pro i9 Slower than the old MacBook Pro i7

    Looks like Apple might need to do some TDP/voltage tuning for their T2 controller; notebookcheck used Intel's tools (and a macOS tool called Volta that lets you cap TDP) to cap a 15" to 45 watts and the results were much better. Same thing with the 13" at 31 watts.Looks like those 50-60-90? watt...

    4K, 144Hz Monitors Reportedly Use Chroma Subsampling When Running in 144Hz

    There isn’t enough bandwidth in DisplayPort 1.4 to allow for 4K 144Hz 10-bit 4:4:4. They could be more upfront about it. I would say in a game it won’t matter but desktop use youlll notice

    Power Plant Brought Out of Mothballs for Blockchain Usage

    Bitcoin Slide Continues Towards $8K

    Nice theoretical. When would every PC gamer buy a high end GPU? Never... Gamers don't go out and buy a video card en masse unless a new one comes out. They also don't buy them in bulk every single day like we saw through the last six or so months of 2017 and early into 2018. Maybe we need...
