    Portable bluetooth speaker for my car

    It does, but I only have a single 55 year old paper speaker in the middle of the dash in it and the radio is AM only.

    Portable bluetooth speaker for my car

    Thanks for the suggestion! I did end up getting the Flip 4 and man is that thing loud! the sound is really clear and crisp too! A bit pricey but well worth it in my opinion, I don't want to hack up an original working radio in my car so this was the best option in the end.

    Portable bluetooth speaker for my car

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what portable bluetooth speaker that is loud enough to be used to play music in a car? I have a 1965 Ford Mustang that still has the original radio that i dont want to replace, but I want to be able to play and listen to my music while driving it. Preferably something small enough to fit in a cupholder, but be loud enough so i can hear the music over the wind and engine noise while driving. Thanks

    General disinterest in tech?

    that kinda happened to me as well. Like when I was in high school, i used to be on the forums everyday and working on computers everyday. Now I don't even play games anymore and this is the first time i checked the forums in like over 2 years. I guess life got in the way or something, but now my new hobby is working on cars. I still like working on computers but not as much anymore.

    Should I buy a older used macbook pro 13 in for school?

    so like a used lenovo thinkpad?
  7. Recently i realized that its really difficult to go through college without owning a personal laptop to be able to have to take notes in class or do work anywhere on the go. I recently purchased a brand new 2018 MacBook Pro 13in with touch bar for school and im still within the 2 week return window. Lately ive been having second thoughts about keeping the computer because for what i use it for, (which is taking notes in class, typing up essays for school, watching youtube, and watching netflix or just basic web browsing, i feel that i can't justify the price of the computer for the tasks i use it for. The thing is, I really like MacOS and how its pretty well optimized. I already have a custom built desktop at home so I just want a laptop to do basic task. My question is, would it be a good idea to buy a used mid 2012 macbook pro 13in with the 3rd gen i5, replace the 500GB hard drive with a SSD, then upgrade the ram to 8GB or more. In my area, I see that second hand 13in MBPs range from $200-300. I just need the laptop to at least last me through college (between 4-5 years) and if it clunks out after that then i'll cross that bridge when i get there. The main thing i worry about is would the processor being a 3rd gen i5 become slow, obsolete, and unusable before i can get through college. What are your opinions on this?

    Time to buy a first car but have no idea what to choose

    Get a used Volvo. Those things are more common where you live, so parts are easier to find and most likely cheaper too. Older Swedish made Volvo are bricks. Basically indestructible. Granted they dont look sporty, but you'll never be left stranded on the side of the road with that thing.

    Is buying ex mining cards a good idea?

    This was on the posting's description. Full disclosure: this card was used for ethereum mining at 75% power target (~110W, ~65C).

    Is buying ex mining cards a good idea?

    Recently I came across a listing on craigslist for a used EVGA GTX 1070 that im thinking about buying. Its listed for $300 obo but the thing thats got me on the fence about it is the owner says that its been used to mine etheirum for 7 months. Im wondering if its a good idea to buy a used ex mining card to use in my PC for gaming? or am i better off steering clear of mining cards and buying either a new card or holding off on upgrading the existing GTX 960 in my PC. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Supermicro X8 DTL-IF-O 5 short beeps 1 long beep error.

    Hey Michelle, I already sold the system a long time ago without trying this. It just never came across to me. Hopefully this solution will work for someone else that has this problem down the road in the future. What I remember worked for me was to switch the power off on the PSU, wait about 30 seconds, then flip it back on again and it would work without any issues
