    1070 to 2070 Super upgrade?

    I picked up a 2070s coming from an ancient 970 so im happy. Next move is a new monitor. If you can hold out for a generation or gen+refresh, then all the better.

    zotac 2070s vs msi 2070s ventus

    the zotac is 499 and the msi is 509. I have a gift card from amazon so it has to be purchased from there. I would have preferred the FE but such is life. I am looking for performance/reliability and followed by cooling/noise. It will be in a closed case with no window so i dont care about looks...

    Amazon Workers Lose Monthly Bonuses, Stock Awards as Minimum Wage Increases

    It depends on the metric. Lots of companies have department or facility wide metrics which gauge how much of a bonus the workers will get. If the metric is no workplace injuries for a year for the fulfillment center, then yes everyone contributed. Now if the metric is, everyone who doesn't call...

    Amazon Workers Lose Monthly Bonuses, Stock Awards as Minimum Wage Increases

    The biggest question is what percentage is winning and who is losing. If you have 15 or 20 workers maxing a 3k bonus while 1000 just get base pay then this is a huge win for the majority. If it were reversed, like 80% getting a bonus over the avg 15/hrs then its just PR coverup.

    1080TI's coming down yet?

    I have seen one in stock right now 1080ti under 750 after 20 MIR. However, with a supposedly close release of the 1180, I will just wait. I am in no rush to get something since I don't even have a high end gaming monitor.

    V30 vs S8+, shopping decision

    I have the note8 on verizon. I would have gotten the S8 active if I were on AT&T. I would appreciate the flat screen and extra ruggedness. I did not like the fact there were no black friday deals for any LG phones except the Tmobile BOGO.

    Win10 update kills BT?

    Nope, Broadcom drivers are messed up ( BCM2070A0). Broadcom doesn't list individual drivers to DL anymore, telling you to use windows updates feature. I uninstall old drivers and wait for windows to load them again and it is still messed up. Whatever, I'll go wired until they fix this.

    Win10 update kills BT?

    Yeah it should automatically select bluetooth audio device instead of realtek audio device once I turn on the headphones. At least it did before the update. BT= Bluetooth

    I am in the same boat. I want to move away from sprint. I currently have 4 lines on a legacy unlimited plan. Sprint is OK for work and home. However, when away, when I need it the most( google maps etc), it fails miserably. I am looking into whoever can give me the best coverage.

    OC failed months out?

    Everything is running stock now. It still won't come out of this weird sleep mode now. I have to keep pressing reset on the case to have it work again. I even tried to do a full power down before going to bed. On start up, it still hung on A0. I had to use the reset and then it worked fine.

    Well, 79 deals with booting and 25 deals with memory. I got it to boot up at stock settings but now I am back to where I was. It seems like its goes to sleep, keyboard lights on, case fans spinning etc, but It wont respond. All I get is a black screen but my monitor still detects a signal from...

    Razer DeathAdder Chroma - $38

    Funny you say that, my first 2 diamondbacks circa 2005 lasted less than a year each. My 3rd white Dback still works but its only for office work. My current deathadder has seen heavy CSGO/COD use since 2010 I think.

    2 phones 1 SIM

    I have Sprint and an S5. I already preordered a Note 7. Can I still use the S5 by swapping the SIM out? I plan to use the Note7 for all my normal activities, but use the S5 for runs and bike rides. It would suck to drop my new Note when my S5 can be cannon fodder.

    HTC 10

    That's the thing they never do. They only drop the monthly like 5 or 10 bucks if you lease/finance. I did the numbers on my plan and I would pay like $400 over a 2 year span. Of course I lose out if I don't get another phone every contract period. Lucky for me, my phones either die or I drop em...
