    iPhone vs Android – The FIVE Year Test

    Yeah? And? Who’s talking about Macs?
  2. I’ve been using a Dark Theme with Chrome on my PC for a while. Maybe I’ll be able to remove it with the release of this.
  3. I should order copies of The God Delusion and The Selfish Gene. Both are apparently very good books by Richard Dawkins.

      You should. As for me, it wasn't The God Delusion that made me question my previous faith that led me to atheism, I read it when I was already in doubt.

      My favorite part of The Selfish Gene is how it introduced the term "meme".

    Is a GTX 1650 a worthy upgrade from a RX 460 2GB

    Nope. Buy an RX 570 if you want a performance upgrade. It’s cheaper than the 1650 and performs better.
  5. Measles cases at an all time high!

      Sure. Cases are higher than they have been in about 20 years. But this is just media sensationalism using statistics without talking about absolutes.

      Doesn’t seem very alarming to me.

    Dell XPS 13 vs HP Spectre x360 comparison

    Most are meant to give an easy value added comparison. I used many XR vs 8 Plus videos before eventually deciding on going with the latter.

    iPhone vs Android – The FIVE Year Test

    It was kinda cool to see the G3 still kicking. Just a shame you have to go through all that work just to make it a good option.

    iPhone XR Dominates the Smartphone Market

    The survey aligns with Apples own sales data. This is a 3rd party confirming what everyone already knows.

    iPhone XR Dominates the Smartphone Market

    Meanwhile I see multiples in every class at my college. That’s why anecdotes are not science.

    iPhone XR Dominates the Smartphone Market

    Whole true, none of those options are incredibly popular.
  11. Released in October of 2018, the iPhone XR was designed to be, “the iPhone for Everyone.” And it seems that the iPhone XR is now the phone that everyone bought. iPhone XR is the spiritual successor to iPhone 5c. The XR comes in a wide variety of color options, has the most battery life of any iPhone, offers a reasonable starting price of $750, and has the design language of iPhone X. With all of these in mind, in addition to the much higher prices of the Xs and Xs Max, it only made sense that iPhone XR would be the most popular iPhone of the generation. The success of the iPhone XR also extends to the UK where it is also the most popular phone being sold. On a semi related note, iCloud has seen decent growth 48% of Apple users pay for extra iCloud Storage. My favorite is the 50GB for $1/m plan. For those of you wondering how these results were found: Something to keep in mind about Apple Products is that the more the internet hates it...the more successful it becomes. Bad faith actors like Unbox Therapy and Jerry Rig Everything portrayed the iPhone XR as a bad phone. Mostly citing the displays’ “low” resolution of 1792 x 828. Claiming it has the same resolution as the iPhone 4 because it shares the same 326ppi. Thankfully consumers can try out iPhone XR before they buy it. And in the vast majority, if not the entirety of cases, the average consumer either doesn’t care or simply can’t see the difference. That’s not because consumers are dumb or don’t know any better...it’s because retina is a real thing. Not a marketing gimmick. Resolution and ppi are nothing next to industry leading color accuracy, contrast, and brightness. So it would appear that in a surprise to no one, Apple has won the smartphone game once again............ Sources: https://www.cultofmac.com/621524/iphone-xr-apple-us-sales-q1-2019/

    GTX 1650's NVENC support

    Another reason just to get an RX 570

    RX 580 at 99% usage while playing PUBG

    Yes that is normal.
  14. Have you checked the AMD support forums? I have an RX 580 and haven’t experienced anything like what you are talking about. It could be a configuration issue. It could be a lot of things.
  15. Only if there was someone out there looking for that specifically. But if they were looking for that they probably have the ability to do it themselves. It wouldn’t hurt to try, but I wouldn’t expect much.
