sof006 reacted to Arika S in UserBenchmark Adjusts Algorthym to Favor Single-Thread Performance, Causing Strange Results
Userbench should not be used for any serious comparison, it's good to get a general idea, but you should ALWAYS go and find full reviews on both products and compare them yourself
sof006 got a reaction from That Franc in 5G Waveforms are Potentially Power Vampires
Honestly I'm very happy with 4G. I hope that when 5G gets switched on it increases the available bandwidth for 4G as a result so I get more reliable speeds. My 100GBs of 4G data is perfect and I wouldn't trade that for a 5G contract anytime soon/in the future.

sof006 reacted to BuckGup in Elon Musk's Neuralink Has Applied to the FDA for Human Trials
VSauce on Mind Field highlighted and interviewed a patient that already has an interface implanted into his brain which he uses to control prosthetics. This was a couple years ago too so I don’t think it will take a decade to get approved if there has already been similar devices already in use.

sof006 reacted to yolosnail in Jony Ive Leaving Apple (but not really)
It has just been announced that Jony Ive is to leave Apple and start his own design business
While at first glance this seems like big news, it's likely that nothing much, if anything is going to change as he's basically going to go from working for Apple, to working with Apple
What this could mean, is that Apple might actually start designing their products, in particular their laptops, with functionality in mind rather than making piece of art (which is totally subjective) then shoehorning a computer inside
sof006 reacted to Anomnomnomaly in Surprise! EA rebrands Loot Boxes as "Surprise Mechanics"
The only way to deal with companies like this is too simply stop buying their products. If you buy anything from EA.. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM... EA are just trying to get away with what YOU ALLOW THEM TOO.
You: Take my money
EA: We've decided we want more
You: OK, take more money
EA: That game you bought, we've removed features and content... do you want it for £xx
You Take even more of my money
EA: Hey, sucker... want a random chance to get something cool
You: Will it help me win the game?
EA: LOL... NOPE
You: Take my money
Now it's proven that they use psychological methods to deceive people, social media use the exact same deceptions and manipulations... So it's the easily influenced and gullible that tend to fall for it... Worse still is that those easily susceptible to addiction are even more likely to fall for these things.
So if people are too gullible to realise that they're being scammed and manipulated by these companies, or they've simply become addicted to them... We need proper legislation to regulate it, Belgium has take the right move and I hope more countries follow suit. 'Loot boxes' by any name are a nasty, nasty thing and are designed purely to trick those who are most in need of protection from them.
Also... FUCK EA in general... If you buy anything from them you should stop immediately. I've boycotted them for more than a decade now... I will never give them a penny of my money ever again.

I want this bill to pass so EA suffers. They've killed so many studios, pushed so many horrible practices. This would hit them where it hurts. Their FIFA Ultimate Team.

Honestly I trust people who dont have social media more. Maybe if you dont have any it gives you bonus points because nothing good comes from social media tbh.
sof006 got a reaction from Taf the Ghost in Google Stadia, Live Stream Wrap-Up
The only benefit I can see here is that you don't need to download to play. Just "stream" it. But thats literally the only benefit, and not one i'd see the point as i'd rather download the game and have it physically there to play at all times.

sof006 reacted to DogeOfTech in Huawei Files Suit In its Fight Against US Ban
Huawei is fighting back against the US ban, calling it, "Trial by legislature". They filed their suit against the Ban today, calling for the US judicial system to throw out some parts of the ban due to them being illegal per the US constitution, since there's no evidence and it gives Huawei no chance to fight back against the ban. They also held a press conference on the 29th (today) stating their position and how they feel it could impact the tech community as a whole.
What do I think? Huawei is right. Even ignoring the fact that they may have ties to the Chinese government, there's no support, no evidence, "...no gun, no smoke...". It will set a dangerous precedent going forward and has the real danger of becoming a situation where China bans US companies from doing business with Chinese companies, which would hurt the US way more than it hurts China. Speaking in terms of telecom, Huawei is trying to be a leader in 5G infrastructure and the fact that they can't do that without being able to buy US items, hurts the entire world. Until the US/ANY government agency provides evidence, they shouldn't be cut off from consumers being able to purchase their devices.

sof006 reacted to LukaH in Nvidia trying to trademark..... numbers?
Nvidia tries to block AMD from naming their RX GPUs similar to the RTX lineup by (trying) trademarking the numbers 3080, 4080 and 5080.
I hope they fail because this is just ridiculous. But i hope AMD fires back and trademarks every other number just for the lolz.
sof006 reacted to XR6 in EE to launch UK's first 5G service in May
I don't think they are. After pressure from the US the UK are in the process of banning/blacklisting Huawei.
Personally, I don't particularly mind if Huawei were involved. The US don't have proof that Huawei were spying, and even if Huawei were spying it wouldn't make a difference.
I and everybody else already get spied on by multiple different governments, I personally couldn't care less if another organization decided to watch what I was doing..
