  1. The issue is still there when I switch to the normal light theme, so I don't think so
  2. Hi. I'm experiencing an issue with my youtube notifications. When I click on the notification bell it doesn't show any text. So all I see is thumbnails and the avatar of the uploader. Also when it was uploaded, but not the video title. I have included a screenshot of what it looks like here I am using the newest version of Chrome. This is not an issue in Safari and also not an issue in Chrome BEFORE i log into my user account in Chrome. If I just log into YouTube without logging into Chrome, it shows the normal notifications. But as soon as I log into Chrome, the text disappears like in the screenshot. I have tried restarting and reinstalling chrome. Deleting all cookies and cache. Deleting my browser history etc. Disabling all extensions and resetting the settings. Not sure what to do at this point. Any help would be much appreciated
  3. The Acer is IPS, so obviously better colour production at the same price point. The PG278QR has quite an aggressive coating and uses a TN panel. Makes everything look a little bit "grainy". I would get the Acer in this situation

    Gamer Health

    I'd say just get up and move quite often. And also do some sort of exercise each week. Preferably at least 3 times a week. Humans weren't designed to sit down and do nothing physically all day. Also quite important if you use a mouse a lot, to have a decent wrist position. Don't bend the wrist up or down too much. Adjust your chair or table height so it's aligned with your wrist.

    GYM time !

    I'm doing the Starting Strength routine. It's basically compound lifts 3 sets of 5 reps. You add 5 pounds each workout, and progress quite nicely. At the moment, I have a hip injury, so I don't know what my current lifts are. My best lifts however are: Squat: 300lbs 1RM Bench: 220lbs 1RM Deadlift: 330lbs 1RM
  6. You won't get the iPhone X this year if you're not extremely lucky with pre-orders or something. It's gonna be in very high demand and they're not making enough to meet it. Regarding what phone you should get, it's highly subjective. The S8 does almost everything the iPhone X does, but cheaper. Of course, it doesn't have the AR capabilities and the Face-ID thing, but do you really need that? Also depends on your budget. A 1000$ phone is no joke, and the S8 is way cheaper in that regard. I would actually get the Oneplus 5 if you live in a country where you can get it through their website. It has a very light android skin, great camera, great performance, looks great, and doesn't cost that much. I think it's under 500$ actually.
  7. Depends on what she's doing with that other guy. If they're just hanging out and having fun as friends, then that's no problem. And you shouldn't worry about it. If you feel like she's doing it just to annoy you or make you jealous, then I would maybe talk to her about it. I've had some girls do that to me in the past. Don't let yourself be treated as a disposable tool. The relationship should go both ways, with mutual respect.
  8. If you don't need G-sync, I wouldn't get it. Many cheaper and better monitors on the market in the same segment (1080p 144hz). The newly released LG 24GM79G is such an option. The Viewsonic XG2401 also offers excellent value for money. They both offer better color and contrast, and the same amount of performance. Just no G-sync.
  9. Should be enough for that
  10. Sorry, I dont know much about AMD cards. But I thought the RX 480 was more like a GTX 1060 in terms of performance. Definitely not a weak card tho. I would maybe go for something stronger if I was planning on playing games like BF1 in 144hz.
  11. Adaptive sync is free sync. For calibration it's hard to say, but I would guess it uses the same panel as the pg248q. Might check out some settings for that
  12. Probably using a cable that can't handle 120hz @1080p, so he has to play on a lower res
