  1. Turns on MacBook to take notes in class*

    My first reaction: "So uncivilized"

    1. Pascal...


      Your iPad: Am I a joke to you ?

    2. TheGlenlivet


      What is this?!?!?  2016?!?!?

    3. ARikozuM


      It's not 2020! It's 2010v2!

  2. Idk what it is, but there is something about a naked iPad on a table that’s just attractive.

      Design is an art. Art can be attractive. 

    3. ARikozuM


      That EPYC Prime95 run gave me the cumz.

    Bernie has 20 more delegates than the 2nd place candidate. If Bernie wins South Carolina....its OVER.

      I did say theoretically did I not? The DNC obviously isn’t interested in fully democratic elections. 

    3. TheGlenlivet


      I wonder if a moderate VP would make him more palatable to the boomer voters.

      Everyone I know over 50 thinks he is too far left... and that's saying it as nicely as I care too....

    4. SenKa


      Fair enough. I did miss theoretically my first read through.




      I've heard rumors of Clinton as his VP, which i hope is nothing more than a rumor.

  4. This is why I got an iPad. Because I can do this anywhere now and I’m not tied to a keyboard and a machine that weighs 3lbs and can’t last more than 6 hours (where as this iPad can last 10 hours). 

    I’ve got a Logitech Crayon coming in the mail so that I can start marking up these documents. 

  5. Ok, so like you know how iPadOS has a desktop browser now?..........Yeah, it literally, changes everything. This thing is a laptop replacement.

      Breaking up with your Macbook for a new love?

    3. DrMacintosh


      MacBook is great for my coding class....but that keyboard and extra 2 pounds gets in the way for most of what I do. 

    4. RoseLuck462


      And for being so cheap, the iPad 7 is incredibly capable 

  6. I couldn’t resist. I bought the iPad 7th Gen. Got the silver 32GB model. Really liking it so far. The bigger screen makes typing on the keyboard a lot more doable. F51337E4-7F68-426A-ACEE-CAA1FC5484BE.thumb.png.bbba4bd2c2ed26c4f9fdfcc705dcfdcd.png


    Also iPadOS looks f*ucking fantastic, right?

    1. PacketMan


      Question: is duet worth it right now? I heard MacOS now supported an iPad with iPadOS as second display. I always wanted to use it as second screen with my old MacBook, but paying that much for duet was a no-no at the time

    2. DrMacintosh


      I got diet on sale. However with SideCar it is irrelevant for macOS users. However, I use Bootcsmp a lot for school (C++ Data Structures) and for that its useful. @PacketMan

  7. I'm really having a tough time resisting buying the 10.2" iPad. I'm thinking that for what I want to do with it, mostly read PDFs, watch YouTube in bed, and be a portable Netflix machine.....the 32GB Silver iPad should be fine? 


    I'd like the 128GB model, but I can't really even fill my 64GB 8 Plus with stuff I use on the daily. 


    Also I was just wondering why iPadOS does not have Preview like macOS. A powerful, free, PDF viewer would really set iPad apart (as if iPad is not the only tablet worth buying anyway).

    1. Den-Fi


      My iPad Pro is def now just a BedPad lol.

      I had to get another one because it's just too good at being a bed media device.

  8. Whohoo. Got another deposit from FAFSA. About 836 shekels.

      Grant. Also gf and I never ended up breaking up. 

    3. BuckGup


      Well that's good I suppose if it helped the relationship 

    4. greenmax


      Free money is the best kind of money!

  9. I watched Beetlejuice today with my gf. So naturally:


    1. TheGlenlivet


      He is the ghost with the most, Babe.


      I can't imagine Baldwin doing a movie like that these days...

  10. Pros of me buying an iPad:

    • A second display when I'm on the go
    • A much more usable screen size for doing HW and looking up notes and videos for HW (without having my MacBook)
    • 1/3 the weight of my MacBook
    • much smaller footprint than my MacBook
    • Can multitask
    • Very long standby time
    • Would not have to pull out my phone at all when on Campus, since my iPhone can relay literally everything to the iPad. 

    Cons of me buying an iPad:

    • I already have a MacBook Pro, making the iPad Redundant and inferior
    • an expense is an expense. $329 is $329 that I could save
    • I cannot work on CS HW from my iPad since an iPad can't do C++
    • Would not be used often when at home or even school. 

    I sadly really can't justify an iPad, but that buy button is so tempting.

      Perhaps, but I've never been one to buy used Apple Products. Maybe refurbished, but never used. 

    3. RorzNZ


      I had an iPad Pro and still have a normal iPad, it’s just gathering dust because I just use my laptop so much more, and everything is already there and can be worked on. 


      I do break it out for flights and long road trips though. It’s just a casual device.

    4. RoseLuck462


      I get the most use out of tablets with them being used for PDF readers.


      I also have the iPad 7 along with the 12.9 Pro and it is quite capable for it's low price.

  11. Upgraded my Grandpas old Dell laptop to a 500GB 860 EVO and upgraded him from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. 


    A good dead was done today.


    Oh yeah, and I kinda want a 10.2" iPad?

      @captain_to_firemy mom has the 10.2" iPad, and i helped her set it up. despite the "dated" cpu it still feels very snappy... 

    3. captain_to_fire


      I currently own a 2018 9.7” iPad with the same A10 chip and it does still feel very fast. I wish it had more RAM like 4-6 GB though. 

    4. ARikozuM


      Misspelling or trying to cover up a murder? 



  12. Oh! And another thing, we got the 92 Cadillac up and running again. Replaced the radiator hose and charged up its battery. We also found the hub cap locks so we should be able to put those back on and really improve the look. All that is left is to find a grille, replace all the Window motors, and fix the AC. 

  13. Also, forgot to mention, the gf and I are back together :3


    (that's why I changed the profile picture back)

      We’re going to dinner. She actually hates Valentine’s Day because it’s a Hallmark holiday fabricated by corporations :P

    3. ARikozuM


      Like every other food holiday. 


      Also, apples get 3 fucking months...

    4. Pascal...


      Oh ok then.

  14. I'm extremely hyped for potential Ryzen APU 13" MacBooks, but as I sit back and reflect on what I actually need out of my MacBook Pro....I realize that those needs are currently satisfied by my current 2C/4T model with b*tch tier Iris Pro graphics. 


    World of Warships and Star Trek Online are playable (but not pretty) with settings and resolution cranked down, Visual Studio has no problems compiling my code, I haven't run out of RAM yet even when using 6 virtual desktops and many chrome tabs, I like the way the keyboard feels even though it's not a reliable design, and I don't think I'll ever be hit with Flexgate. 


    I kinda just want to ride this thing out until it dies or it becomes limiting. 


    Also not having to worry about a T2 chip is nice. 

  15. Fuck me, Better Call Saul Season 4 is amazing. I'm only two episodes in and it's got me like a deer in headlights. 

    1. imreloadin


      Shit it took Netflix so long to get season 4 I'm going to have to rewatch the first 3 seasons again just to remember what was going on xD

    2. TheGlenlivet


      Just finished Bojack.... I'm not ready for a new show, still in mourning....

  16. And now for Mr. Conway Twitty:


  17. What I'd like to see in 2020 from Apple. 


    • 13" MBP with a Ryzen APU
    • Mac mini with a Ryzen APU or RX 5500 (or better) Graphics
    • iMac redesign with Navi graphics
    • Mac Pro switching to EPYC
    • A consumer Mac tower with up to Threadripper CPUs

      Catalina code suggests the first two might be possible. The iMac has been due for a design for like 8 years. Doubt we will see a consumer tower from Apple ever again though. 

    3. PacketMan


      I liked the MacBook 12, would have loved to see one with a nice Ryzen APU (powerful enough for 4K HDR movies and, of course, with the option for a nice 4K display) and good port selection

    4. DrMacintosh


      I think the 12” MacBook is a candidate for ARM 

  18. Looks like things with me and the GF are over. She improved on her communication and I have full closure. It’s unfortunate that things came to this, and that I wasn’t able to give her the answers she wanted on the spot about my feelings towards her. 

    The reasons are there, she doesn’t doesn’t want to hear them anymore. 

    It was great while it lasted, but now that it seems over, I‘m thankful I have closure and that I can take this on the chin and not feel extremely torn up about it. At least I’m functional and not an emotional wreck. 

    On the bright side, I might actually have an ex now. Though I suppose not having exes already is what caused this to happen. Meh. Live and let live.

      Now you're one of us again ! Welcome back !

    3. RoseLuck462


      When I saw that your avatar was back upon seeing your post on a notification, I was gonna joke that something like this happened...


      Damn lol


      Sorry to hear this.

    4. Java


      Ah shit, hope you're all good. 



      War Thunder is still better btw  c :

      so i checked the republican side out of curiosity, and...




      this is scary on so many counts ._. what the hell is going on over there?

    3. DrMacintosh


      Well, the GOP isn’t exactly what I would call a rational organization. 

    4. BuckGup


      I always find it funny how people don't want easier and better lives. People would rather be correct than happy

  20. I completely forgot that my Apple Watch is an MP3 player and I can connect my AirPods to it......I'm telling you, the Apple Watch Series 2 is still great, even in 2020.

    (This is a joke, not a serious post)

    (This is though)


  22. New Star Trek Picard episode is coming out today 👀 


    I’ve been really impressed with the first 2 episodes so far and I’m hoping that CBS gets this right. Star Trek can’t face the same fait as Disney Star Wars. 

  23. It's kinda odd that in Windows 10, but not macOS, my HDMI, USB 3.0, USB-C Power adapter only works the its upside-down and in the bottom TB3 port. In macOS it works in any orientation and in any port.

      Your Macbook made it?


    3. RoseLuck462


      Is that what you look like?

    4. DrMacintosh


      Pretty much? The avatar is more feminine than I actually look, and my hair curls out at the ends
