    Studies show that it’s impossible to read this meme in the voices of Fry and Farnsworth xD 

  2. Just spend an hour and 45min removing Idle Buddy from my Grandfathers laptop over the phone. We installed 3 programs: EMSISoft Emergency Kit, Malwarebytes, and HitmanPro. 


    Emergency Kit removed Idle Buddy, Malwarebytes found all kinds of shiz and removed them, and HitmanPro was the Nuclear Option which we saved for last. Thankfully it found nothing meaning the other two programs were successful. 


    Because of all this mess, my Grandpa is now finally looking into getting a MacBook Pro xD I'll probably find him a nice 2015 13"/15"

      @imreloadin Never in my life would I give a family member  Linux...

      Why is that?

    4. DrMacintosh


      Reason #1 is the programs he uses aren’t available on Linux and there are no emulators or wrappers for them.

      I’m liberal. I’m only wasteful when it’s convenient. Can’t let a perfectly good meme go to waste.

  5. I wonder, what is the deal with the render scaling on iPhone 7/8 Plus? iPhone 6s Plus did not appear to have any sort of scaling going on, it was all just antialiased. On iPhone 7/8 Plus you can see the effect of the scaling on screen zoom button in the Camera app and also in the YouTube app on the pause buttons. The lines are not incredibly crisp. This only happens with some UI elements and never with text.....so what gives? 

  6. Actually they are.....what is the most popular single phone sold worldwide? iPhone.
  7. The Galaxy Fold, and other folding phones, are not appealing for the vast majority of consumers. Don’t get me wrong, the technology is cool and the technology should be used....just in a more practical application.
  8. I hope that Samsung loses money from the Galaxy Fold It's a fundamentally flawed product concept. The technology is cool, the phone is not.
  9. Strange. It feels like my Series 2 Apple Watch has sped up since I unpaired it and paired it to my 8 Plus. Obviously there is no performance gain, but I think unpairing it cleared up all the junk that was on there. It feels a lot snappier now.

      I wonder if Apple should make it a habit of unpairing and pairing on a monthly "maintenance" routine.

  10. What a total failure of a product. 



    It’s not that the Galaxy Fold is “fist gen,” it’s that the Galaxy Fold is an impossible product and is fundamentally flawed.

      Did the Verge break it with "tweezers"?

      All jokes aside, I agree it's "an impossible product " with today's technology.  Hopefully Samsung won't take too much of a hit on this one.  We need them pushing the envelope and moving Apple and the rest forward with new stuff.

      I've seen two tweets which cite the peeling of that plastic film to be the reason why the failure rate was so high, MKBHD being one of them.

      I think that the design has potential, but there are several shortcomings. 

      First off, flexible and scratch resistant doesn't go hand in hand, second off, ANY movable component is much more likely to fail then if it's non movable.  It's just a greater point of failure, and while laptops are largely alright, phones go through a lot more physical abuse than your typical laptop. 


      Durability concerns aside, let's look at usability.  First off, I find the lack of pen such as in the note series to be a glaring omission, and this phone is quite a bit thicker due to it being foldable.  While I don't find that too big of an issue, not integrating wallet like functionality seems like a missed opportunity.  You could totally add pockets to the foldable backside to hold money and cards.  Although I can see some aftermarket cases incorporating that feature.

    Is Apple Even TRYING?? – Airpods 2 Review

    AirPods 2 is just a refresh, not an entirely new product and he knows that. Linus just likes clicks :3
  12. I’m torn on if I like True-Tone or not. It’s a neat feature, especially when I’m home because I believe that warm lighting it best for homes, but then again, using it means you aren’t getting the full P3 Color experience of one of the best screens ever in a phone. 

    1. RoseLuck462


      For me, true tone is similar to night shift mode for me for when my eyes start to get tired. It makes the screen easier to see when that happens.

  14. Upon seeing posts of 2018 MacBook Pros being hit with flexgate, I've come to the conclusion that the chances of a machine developing flexgate depends on the user. 


    How can a 2016 MBP not have its display fail while a 2018 MBP can when the flex cable design is nearly identical? And actually the 2018 models had their display cables extended! It's because of that, that I'm 90% sure flexgate from people handling the machines by the display and from over-extending the display. 


    I'm not saying that Apple shouldn't start a repair program, but I do think a "You're holding it wrong" will definitely accompany it.

      Environment could be an issue as well.  In particular an area where the temps fluctuate heavily, such as high dessert.

      @Skanky Sylveon or anywhere in the midwest.


      Or literally anywhere on earth since people bring their PCs into all sorts of environments.
