    This is a rumour because the main source here is the Daily Mail (who have "sources" none of which are public) and all other sources I have checked pretty much use the Daily Mail as their main source meaning take this with a pinch of salt, I also can't find any information abrout it on the BBC website itself.

    As the title says the BBC designing an alternative voice-Activated Assistant called "Auntie" (The name is going to change on release I believe.... luckily)
    [1]
    So the goal from the sounds of the goal here the assistant would have similar if not the same permissions, abilities and controls to the 3 main assistants at the moment and seams to be (at least initally) UK only, but I can see it being expanded to include other countries if it is a successful project which people start using.

    I am ok with the BBC creatign their own version of the smart speaker with "auntie" (that name just keeps getting worse) but I have a feeling that if the BBC does this by regulatory restaint that the end result could be that the implimentation of their new assistant will not be particularly good.
     
    Overall I think if this is real and is happening this is a good thing as it means that there is an alternative to tech giants which has a good trusted reputaion (in general), who I have a feeling will give you almost if not full control over what data is sent to them (although that could turn out to be false) I personally would trust the BBC over google, apple or amazon and I personally don't use these devices but I think that if the BBC creates this and it is both popular and not completely useless it might be successful. Especially if it can understand the Scots.

    Also side note, if this is real what should the BBC call the assistant, and apart from "Daddy" is their any names which are worse than "Auntie" for an assistant?

    The list is below. The parts in this list are pretty much just as good (motherboards ever so slightly worse but nothing in a meaningful way. the ram is the same just cheaper pretty much and by using a stock cooler your saving $90 enabling most of this)

    That was when it first launched you should be fine now (and hell if your not it will be replaced by your warranty) also it wasn't every card that was affect only a few so you'd just be unlucky to get one that did even if the problem still fully existed

    Changes
    CPU Cooler same teir of CPU cooler on the performance tier just  cheaper
    CPU change (2600 is a 2600X pretty much not worth the extra $35)
    Found pretty much the same ram for cheaper and it's black not blue so doesn't stand out as much (might matter to you might not))
    using RTX 2070 now not 2060 will affect gaming performance and is worth some of the other minor sacrifices
     
    Forgot the 2600 has a good stock cooler if your not overclocking use that instead saving you $40 which could be used for pocket change or 2700 (would put you $20 over if you did that though but that comes with a cooler and extra 2 cores are nice to have)

    grimreeper132 got a reaction from Atharva Phadke in Replace Phone LCD to OLED??   
    Maybe, but it is not recomended.

    But if you do do it, and the the phone does not officially support the OLED diplay, there is five posible outputs I can forsee
    1) The wiring between the two screens are significantly diffrent so that everything breakes/blows up/released their magic blue smoke and dies
    2) The wiring is diffrent and it doesn't work but your phones a soilder and powers through letting you swap back to your old screen
    3) The wirings are diffrent but not massively so it works but it looks worse or operation is not as expected and it's not a good experience and you wish you had your old LCD back
    4) The Wirings are diffrent but to an extent that the experience is the same as the LCD so nothing is gained
    5) The wiring and software support the new OLED and you now have an OLED phone which works perfectly.
     
    1 or 2 is the most likely. And all of this is assuming that the data/power connectors are the same, the impedance of the new screen is similar enough not to cause over current, you can find a screen which is has the same mounting points and is the same size.
     
    TL:DR Don't do it

    grimreeper132 got a reaction from Atharva Phadke in Replace Phone LCD to OLED??   
    I assumed that, but yea the main problem here is because no ones tried it (as fast as I know) and there isn't massive public details about OLED, and because I can't be fucekd reading it all to work out how everything works etc. And because each phone drivers will be diffrent there is just too many unknowns to know for certain

    grimreeper132 got a reaction from Groppa in I9 9900KF ?? News??   
    Due to it not having a iGPU in theory and in practice (to some degree) the CPU will be able to overclock higher and run cooler. But this does not meen that it is a better CPU for you, as the iGPU is sometimes a life saver when debugging what has broken with your PC this time. Also can in certain workloads be utilised to speed up the applications, so they are faster than what they would run at even without the iGPU and overclocked

    grimreeper132 got a reaction from r2724r16 in Nvidia be shitting bricks right about now or in a few months.   
    I must say that it would be nice if this is true, but at the same time even these roumors show that AMD is at least a generation behind nividea as they are building a card to rival a 1080 which isn't even the top teir card from nividea, so despite it looking cheap and powerful, they will only get the lower end of the market, nividea still has the proformance side like AI, as their cards no matter how you look at it are faster.
     
     
    Side note I also hate/love the new naming scheme, I hate it as not their next gen CPUs will have very similar names to their GPUs which will be a fucking pain, that being said the cards have a bigger number than nividea so they must be better

    move the 
    nonzero_count++; to the end of the while loop as your adding 1 to it immediately, so e.g you start nonzero_count at 0 outside the while loop the first number you will be testing from it will be 1 as your immediately adding that 1 to it.

    grimreeper132 got a reaction from TopHatProductions115 in HP forces Intel to officially support 128GB DDR4 on 9th gen core CPUs   
    This isn't for main stream its for business cause they will want 128GB of RAM sure they probably should be using xeon at that point there is some reasons why they might not wanna, e.g. core series are faster, which if you are using 128GB of RAM might be useful, second thing is the xeon equivalents to the core series will be able to support up to 128GB cause they will also have to support up to 128GB if the core series does, so it might be a case HP was forcing intel to do it so they can get it on xeon as it might be a in for a penny in for a pound case of they should/need to support it on both. Either way it's happening and it is good for the consumer in one way or another
