    How do you like your coffee?

    I put the salt in the coffee grounds when I'm using my pour-over coffee maker. Really only needs a pinch. It makes the coffee less bitter and less acidic tasting without adding creamer. If you're adding cream and sugar then there's no need for the salt probably.

    Apple and Intel delay 5G adoption on iPhone

    So much Texas on that 5G launch I'm excited. No 5G phones yet though.
  5. why EDIT - After a quick Google, the shirts were only available online, and are not available anymore. You might just order one from American eBay from a seller that will ship internationally.
  6. But as far as crossplay goes, MS is winning, because they control both Windows and Xbox. There's definitely more than 78 million PC gamers, and being able to crossplay with their 35 million Xbox friends will be beneficial to both parties. Sony locking themselves out is asking for trouble. It won't affect them this generation since, as you said, they already have the market share and they can't lose now. But when the new console platforms launch, market share could start swinging to Microsoft, as long as they don't launch a worse console for more money (Xbox One.) It swung from Xbox 360 to PS4, it can swing back.
  7. All of the "lite" apps are releasing because Google released a bare-bones version of Android Oreo for budget phones in developing markets. https://www.android.com/versions/oreo-8-0/go-edition/ Android Go released with "Go" versions of most Google apps. To go along with those lightweight Google apps, lots of app developers are launching lighter versions of their social media platforms. Facebook doesn't say that Instagram Lite is for Android Go, but I'm sure that's where most people will download it.

    Help deciding on a car

    absolutely true statement Even in Texas WRXs are beat up by their owners. Even still, used ones are expensive, with head gasket problems and oil leaks! I'd be really careful when looking at used WRXs. Super fun and cool cars, but the second they leave the lot they're typically on the road to the tuning shop. EDIT - also strangely, people seem to drive Subarus until they die. Looking on Craigslist now for WRXs, I can't find one from the early to mid-2000's with less than 210K miles. If they have fewer miles, they're above market value. That's why I ended up not buying a Subaru.
  9. I'm sure I wouldn't have issues with missing keys after using one for a while, but I just despised the tactile feel. I have a laptop with the generic decent Dell keyboard that I enjoy typing on, and of course my Ducky Shine 5 MX Brown. Totally different league of tactile feel. If you enjoy it, more power to you. All I have written is subjective no inherent flaws other than literal dust impeding the function of the keyboard. Sounds terrifying
  10. My uncle bought a MBP 13 Touch Bar a few months ago. And while I generally love Macbooks, especially the keyboards, the new one is simply terrible. Basically no key travel, key presses are too heavy with little feedback, and the sound is obnoxious. The laughably tiny lift from the unibody made it difficult for me to keep track of where my hands were on the keyboard, a problem I've never experienced on a laptop before. I basically had to stare at the keyboard while setting it up for him. Apple took a leap forward with their new huge trackpads with great palm rejection and two leaps back with their newest Butterfly keyboards. EDIT - it's not really the sound of the key presses that's obnoxious, rather the feeling that goes through your fingers. The click sounds are okay but the feeling is ugly.

    How to turn off "anti ear rape"

    maybe... dont If you must, I'm sure plugging the headset in directly to your motherboard will do the job. If you're using the USB dongle, that might be ruining it.
  12. And worse battery life, a worse screen, worse keyboard, worse trackpad, heavier, thicker, and larger charger. But you're right that it would have more performance.
  13. gaming laptops suck if you don't game on them...

    Don't you just love the non-tech YTs/streamers?

    Yeah but what if it's not? In that position, you would be risking another crash if you just reinstalled OS, and you'd still be losing time. It could be a deeper problem and it's probably worth it to just buy a new computer and not risk anything. If you're a big YouTuber or Twitch streamer, one or two days of lost revenue is potentially a lot of money.

    Don't you just love the non-tech YTs/streamers?

    Exactly. They need to think about time and money. The thought process might be "I can spend $1500 of my time fixing this computer, or I can spend $2000 on a new one and improve my working speed at the same time, PLUS having minimal downtime." It's just logical.
