    What companies are good now days

    Went on ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo's websites. Not really liking anything. We are going to hit a few stores over the weekend to see what they have.
  2. My mom's 2011 era HP computer has been having video issues and I think its pretty much toast that this point. What pre built brands are good? She wants something she can walk in to a store and pickup that day. So I need to know what brands are good and what brands to avoid.

    HP Pavilion P7-1010 No video

    I know the computer boots up to Windows. 1 the hard drive works, I tested it with my USB to hard disk adapter to verify the data. 2 I got picture for 30 seconds using DVI to HDMI plugged in to my older Samsung TV. On VGA is will not display any images and it actually makes my TV act weird. The power LED blinks and it seems like it has a hard time changing source. On DVI-HDMI it only displays a picture if I hold the power button in for a few seconds. It shows the log in screen. A few things I did notice about this machine. The motherboard uses a 24 pin port but the PSU is only a 20 pin. That another reason I dont want to put a GPU in it, for fear of stressing a OLD psu out. Plus I couldn't put my HD7950 in it as it doesn't even have PCIe Power Plugs and I dont have any adapters. If the iGPU did die, its best we buy a new one, because that means either the CPU or the motherboard (Where ever the iGPU is located on that machine) is probably giving up the ghost.
  4. So as the title says I got one of these old ass HP computers. Or I should say my mom does. About a week ago we had issues where the screen would not turn on after the computer was woken from sleep. So I did a test by taking the tower and plugging it in to my TV. My TV is one of the only ones in the house with VGA. The computer had issues until I replaced the VGA cable. Then it worked. We'll now it's happening again. I'm fresh out of VGA cables but the machine has a DVI-D connection. So I used my DVI to HDMI cord and still nothing. The only difference is I'm using my mom's TV as it's next to the computer. So whatcha think.... The computer finally dead? I thought maybe the iGPU might have died. But the only dedicated GPU is in my gaming rig and I'm sure if I plugged into this machine fire would happen or at the very least the GPU and or the PSU would die. Oh btw the display can detect if a cable is connected. Just bitches about no signal. Not sure if that helps.

    OnePlus 6T questions

    Yeah BUT the software on the T Mobile supplied device is out of date compared to the one directly from One Plus. At least according to the T Mobile forums.

    OnePlus 6T questions

    I see some valid points above, however. 1) I did not notice a big difference in resolution from my LG G3 (1440p) and the OnePlus 3T(1080p). 2) I dont really give two cares about cameras, I frankly dont take that many pictures and all my previous phones did fine. On top of that I dont do selfies as I dont like my picture taken. Most pictures with me have a middle finger in them. What I care about is longevity. My sister has had issues with ever Android device she has ever had. However, she has had the iPhone 8 for over a year without an issue. Which is why I was kinda considering the iPhone X, which looks to be around $750 or so. Im a little disappointed that my 3T has really only lasted me a little over 2 years. Considering my LG G3 lasted over 3. Out of all the Android devices I have had however, OnePlus has been my favorite. I like Oxygen OS, it seems to be pretty stock with One Plus's flair added. ALso, they are one of the few manufactures that seem to update their devices regularly. @Darkseth you do make a valid point about cost. The OnePlus 6T with 6 Gigs of ram is not much more than what I paid for my 3T. The issue is id have to order it from OnePlus directly, because the TMobile version according to the TMobile forums is quite a bit out of date in terms of software compared to the one you get from One Plus directly. Where as Apple controls updates on all their devices, so I could actually put X amount down and finance the rest. Was talking to my friend yesterday and he said some of the newer Samsung devices are actually not shit. Though not sure if I would take a chance.
  7. Well first Cordless phones have been around for fucking ever. Im 30 years old and had one as a kid. So that solves that issue. The other issue is moving the modem. In order for the modem to get the best signal, Comcast tends to put a two way splitter on the main line that does one side for TV the other for internet. If you have more than one TV then another splitter is used for the TV side of the splitter. Modems require a signal to be kept in a certain spec, more splitters can push it out of that spec. What Im saying is, if the coax in your room has too many splitter's between it and the main line, YOU WILL HAVE ISSUES.

    OnePlus 6T questions

    For the record I was not comparing Android to iOS. I just said I was considering an iPhone. Also Apple and Android are competing platforms so yeah they are in the same market. It just comes down to features an OS at this point. But like I state, "Considering" is not the same as buying. This thread is about information on the OnePlus 6T as Im considering that as well. Im just kinda disappointed that the 3T didnt last me more than about 2 years before it started having issues.

    OnePlus 6T questions

    My OnePlus 3T has been kinda acting up latley. With laging and the fact that Bluetooth fails horribly most of the time. Looking at the 6T, I see according to OnePlus.net that it includes a screen protector and case. I was currous about the quality of these items? I got the essentials kit with the 3T and the screen protector lasted about a year. The case was so so in terms of quality though Im still using it. I have other questions: Would the DASH charger and cord from the 3T work with fast charging the 6T? How well does the in screen finger print reader work? How well does it perform on the T Mobile network? How well does the face unlock work? Is it secure? Im considering a few devices. Ive looked at the Razor phone though I think its gamer esk for me. Ive even considered an iPhone as my sister has one and its the first phone she hasn't bitched about fucking up. Im open to other suggests as well, NO SAMSUG devices however. Had a bad experience back in the day, my sister had a bad experience with her last one, and my mom also had a bad experience.
  12. Directly from Wikipedia"United States Antitrust law is a collection of federal and state government laws that regulates the conduct and organization of business corporations, generally to promote fair competition for the benefit of consumers. (The concept is called competition law in other English-speaking countries.) The main statutes are the Sherman Act of 1890, the Clayton Act of 1914 and the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. These Acts, first, restrict the formation of cartels and prohibit other collusive practices regarded as being in restraint of trade. Second, they restrict the mergers and acquisitions of organizations that could substantially lessen competition. Third, they prohibit the creation of a monopoly and the abuse of monopoly power.[1] " Youtube has competition, I have not heard of any Mergers between Youtube and other video platforms and they are not a monopoly based on the fact there are other video sites out there. While Youtube could be breaking some other laws, Anti Trust is not one of them.
  13. Doesnt follow the 5G standard. This is not true 5G service. Its only slightly better than the fake 5G AT&T was trying to push off on its customers. I heard Verizon is no longer deploying this service they are waiting for true 5G equipment so they can deploy proper 5G services.

    Possible Phone Upgrade

    Because if the Bluetooth issues with this one. Also not sure if I want to stay on Android. Android auto is kinda shit, it goes AWOL all the time when I'm driving.
