  1. I'm losing my patience on Horizon 4.


    Had a ranked session where everyone except one couldn't even drive. Just rammers, wallriders and people with shitty network connections... 

    1. Cyberspirit


      Maybe it's better on higher ranks?

      I don't play ranked I just like to drive around and race sometimes. 

    2. D13H4RD


      The rank doesn't matter. Most people there drive like utter asses. 


      Though occasionally you meet some legitimately fast guys who also race clean. 

  2. Ladies and Gentlemen This is why; I use Facebook less and less I don't use my credit card on Steam/Facebook/Google Play/iTunes

    Apple's doesn't want to support Nvidia in macOS

    Apple and NVIDIA Throw Qualcomm in the mix and how we have the dynamic trio.

    Clickbait titles and thumbnails

    No kidding. It's like they're doubling down on it even though at this point, they already have the subscriber count. Not to mention a lot of subs likely aren't regular watchers of the show.

    Clickbait titles and thumbnails

    This reminds me. Even when they first did clickbait, it wasn’t nearly as bad because the product that was in the video was in the title, such as “The BEST 15” gaming laptop? - ASUS GL502VS review” But now, it’s “Why would you even...”, and no mention of the RTX 2060 in the title although it’s part of the thumbnail in that case

    OMG Singapore!!

    I actually just got back from Singapore. One tip shared by a family member who lives there is to check online for pricing and take advantage of any coupons/offers that are available. There’s a reason why many of my Singapore-based friends have told me to refrain from buying stuff in SG unless it’s something I can’t find back home. It’s pricey.
  7. i'm trying so hard to copy your pfp, but the pinky one wants to follow the third finger!

      it's worse with the nondominant hand ,_,

    2. Jtalk4456


      weird, that made perfect sense so i tried to see how bad it'd be and the non dominant hand was easier actually for me

    Clickbait titles and thumbnails

    I stopped watching them precisely because it really feels that they're catering to trends rather than building on their integrity. LTT during the kitchen days were ultimately the better days. At this point, I really don't understand why they feel that doubling down on this was a good idea. It risks alienating long time viewers in return for short-term viewers who may come and go. Those viewers won't watch everything you have, guys, nor will they care a few months or years down the line. But long timers will.

    Clickbait titles and thumbnails

    They really need to take a step back. It's already going deep into ridiculous levels. TechQuickie's quality in terms of accuracy has not been well-received lately, with a couple of inaccuracies in some videos, especially when they're now coupled with titles such as "How is this screen NOT BROKEN?!", rather than "Flexible Displays as fast as possible". I know YouTube favors clickbait and it is shit, but by doing so, aren't you contributing to the problem?
  10. I'll just get the Mophie one tbh, if I really had to choose. I'm sorry, but that hump is just so awkward, especially on something that has a bitten apple on it
  11. One thing I don't get though. Why are they insisting on the hump design when it was countlessly ridiculed when it was first released for the iPhone 6s?

    So this happened today.....(story)

    I don't think the guy ever understood the concept of depreciation. When you buy a car for $60,000, you can't sell it at $60k years later because it would've depreciated over time. The only exceptions to the rule are buildings, very limited-run items and some other stuff.

    What are your tech pet peeves for 2019?

    The wild west that is DisplayPort cables that don't carry an official certification (VESA certified cables are impossible to find here) Windows 10 My router constantly needing a second reboot after the breaker trips from lightning. Batteries
  14. >Has 1080p monitor 

    >Plays YouTube videos in 4K


    Because why not? :P


    (I have unlimited and a PC more than powerful enough to playback compressed 2160p content)

      I think my computer would explode even trying 8K.

      my 8600k can actually hold up with 8k...

      @D13H4RD The reason that youtube videos look better at 1440p compared to 1080p is the codecs.

      1080p60/30 content (unless its popular) uses AVC (H264) video with m4a (aac) audio and with any 1440p+ content it uses VP9 (Comparable to H265 in compression) and Opus audio, regardless if its popular. Meaning that if you were to rescale your 1080p60 gameplay videos into 1440p60 that it would actually look better on youtube..

  15. Nope. I still have an iPad 2 and that thing isn't worth much on the second hand market
