  • Biography
    I am a college graduate with degrees in Information Technology and Psychology. I served six years in the United States Army as an infantryman and did one tour in Afghanistan. I built my first PC in 2006 and have fallen in love with them ever since. I don't overclock much and mainly buy parts for aesthetic purposes and stock performance. I'm somewhat of an Intel/Nvidia fanboy as I have never dealt with AMD systems before. I've built approximately ten complete systems total from the ground up, some for myself and others for family and friends, and have swapped out individual hardware components on so many occasions that I don't have an accurate count.

  1. I know Pixel isn't truly stock, I just like the way they did things. Never experienced Android One stuff though.
  2. @Noctus I would respectfully disagree. I'm not much for audio quality, it's more a convenience thing. Like, I'm paying several hundred bucks for a phone, it would seem a small feature like that would be standard no matter what. Sometimes I forget my Bluetooth earbuds or they run out of juice. Other times my Bluetooth is acting funny and I gotta turn it off, so I still want the option to use a wired pair. It's the same premise as a condom: I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it
  3. https://9to5google.com/2018/01/15/how-to-enable-developer-options-google-pixel-2-android-basics/ Enable Developer options by following the instructions in the link. Then get to the debugging section and enable 'USB Debugging'. See if that works or not.
  4. Just to clarify, did you go into the Developer Options and turn on debugging? I know you said you allowed transfer through USB but wanna double check that that's the option you did.
  5. Just to comment specifically on what you said on the G6, I absolutely agree with most of your points. I would diverge slightly and say if they just had a Pixel-like UI and consistent upgrades, it would have pretty much been a perfect phone for me. I dislike LGs skin wholeheartedly.
  6. So true! It's helpful sure, but wired connections have plenty of advantages as well and surpass wireless in many respects. I too have a 'gaming laptop', an Acer NItro but it was the same price and actually cheaper than the traditional laptops at the time, so I figured it was a good buy since it had a discreet card and some other features I wanted. The brick though is quite big, but not bad overall and has very good length. I Googled your laptop and it seems mine seems roughly the same in terms of 'portability', and I think it's very reasonable. I think that's subjective. I owned Samsung's and LGs and a couple others and yeah they added some neat features, but now I'm on the Pixel lineup and it's actually quite good as well. For me, I text and make phone calls and do some Netflix and Youtube, so I'm a fairly light user and I like the minimalistic approach that Google has. It seems the 'fluff' has been stripped away and you're just left with the basics. Perhaps it's not for everyone, but for me I love it.
  7. At least it wasn't catastrophic. You build your system or was it prebuilt?
  8. Blasphemy! Respectfully disagree. Having gone from a 60Hz panel to a 144Hz and then back, there is a huge difference. But to each their own. They may be good things, but the trend seems to suggest otherwise. Take removable batteries for example, is there even a mid-range phone new this year that has this feature? The last decent one was made two or three years ago. Nowadays it's all about that IP68 and sealing the device from the elements. Even expandable storage is going away, with people choosing massive internal storage options. And most laptops have so many screws, proprietary I might add, that it makes it near impossible to gain access to your hardware. Of course with some digging I'm sure you can find one that's friendly to upgrading, but looking at the mainstream options I don't think it's the norm.
  9. 1. It's not that obvious because everyone and their mother seems to think they need the latest iPhone or Samsung flagship device to browse Facebook and take pictures of their food. They seem convinced they need that high end hardware. At least this is true in my area. 2. My point on that was that it was taking the responsibility away from the driver; yeah of course it can save a life or two, but if we rely too much on it it becomes a crutch, not an asset. Everything in moderation. 3. I just don't like the whole concept of asking my phone to do stuff. Idk, I don't got a tin foil hat or anything but it just rubs me the wrong way.
  10. We're just gonna have to agree to disagree man, or else I'm gonna argue back and forth with you for awhile.
  11. The red nipple is frickin' awesome man, idk what you're talking about
  12. I only mention it because I've seen it with my own eyes, those entering high school and college right now thinking their vehicle will save them if they are distracted. We've had several crashes in my hometown for that very reason. Would I drive more dangerously because I have a seat belt? Of course not. But the next generation seems to believe their cars will save them for some reason. That's why I think it's developing bad habits and too much of a reliance on technology rather than common sense. For the record not everything about safety features is bad, I just think there's a fine line between what compliments your driving and what supplements it.
  13. Ever feel like you were alone in what you thought about technology today? I sure have, so I thought I'd create this thread to see if we're truly as alone as we may think. So ITT, list off a few items that seems go against the grain when it comes to mainstream tech ideas. I'll start. 1. High end specs in a phone (ie 12GB of RAM) are a waste of money to both produce and buy 2. 'Safety features' in a modern vehicles, like applying the brakes for you, will create bad driving habits and bad drivers overall 3. Voice assistants are a bad idea
  14. Yeah I know things have gone rather quiet, I was just curious if during that craze it really was widespread. I mean it was reported on most major tech outlets, but for some reason I felt like maybe it was just a minority. I get my updates, even the big ones, the day they become available without issue. I may have one in the future, but it just seems odd that Windows is seemingly slammed constantly for poorly rolled out updates and yet I haven't experienced it. Just naive I guess And with my laptop, things couldn't be better. Excellent battery life and no issues. Weird, and I guess that's why I'm asking to get some feedback cuz I'm genuinely curious.
  15. I'll probably get schooled by someone else on here, but imo save yourself $25 and just get the cheaper set. Synthetically, sure the more expensive one might be faster but will you be able to tell? Unlikely.
