  1. I have used both on desktop over the years and I've been wondering whether firefox uses less battery than chrome on android. I prefer firefox over chrome because of the blocking tools + ability to install addons, however, I've been struggling to find any well-made comparisons of the 2 browsers in terms of power usage especially since firefox went full-quantum supernova. I shall use whichever saves more battery, so if anyone has useful information in that regard, please share! And if you have tips on how to optimize them both for lower battery consumption, it will be greatly appreciated! Also what about firefox focus? Despite it being chromium based, isn't it the same as firefox if you were to block 3rd party and tracking cookies + install uBlock Origin? P.S. firefox without addons and disabled 3rd party cookies ofc is preferred, Ik that some addons may increase power consuption, I'm more interested in comparing the browsers in a raw-ish form. Thanks and have a nice one! Edit: I just found out that focus lets you have 1 tab, no addons, no sync and bookmarks so that's a turn off for me. Anyways, I'm focused (hah) on chrome vs firefox battery consumption.
  2. So at tech university we've been assigned to plan a cloud solution which would improve security and reliability of a rail-based transport system. The machines are old and not computerized so I'd have to introduce standalone hardware and software to make it all work. The effort and cost should be minimal. I'm thinking on a few possible ways this could work (e.g. a centralized server with limited access according to the rank of the staff members plus a cloud backup) however I'm not very much into cloud architecture so any tips on what must and mustn''t be done would be greatly appreciated! Also if you are familiar with any existing plans which I could base mine on, please share. P.S. It's a side assignment, not rewarding grades or credits.

  4. Here is a suggestion to the LTT staff: Why don't you guys start making fast-paced builds for instagram, twitter and the rest where you just have a cam facing at the building (at the builder's hands performing everything) and then fast forward the whole thing so it fits in half a minute or sth and maybe put some audio track and done, you know...like the speedart, speedrun kind of videos. It'd be a cool trailer thing to put up before or when releasing a build video. Have a great day!

  6. Ay guys, this is not Austin. You should update this though since 10 is a more ocd-friendly number P.S. Ik it's a small thing, just wanted to point it out so it gets updated, cuz it prob hasn't been noticed. Have a great one!
  7. I see a bigger problem lying in the non-removable batteries from a waste standpoint. Also screens that break from the wind changing directions and costing millions to repair so instead you throw the phone away and buy a new one even tho the rest is working... I see the point of having multiple standards increases the waste, however I think they should instead of limit technological advancements of the different standards, they should probably focus on the control of quality - make sure the cables last longer and are tougher, instruct people how to handle cables to further reduce waste, increase their price so that lazy people don't just buy a new one when they are bored or can't lift their pizza boxes up to find their "lost" cable and also make sure they are made the cleanest way possible. Waste will be reduce, technology won't be inhibited. Generally cheap crap increases waste. Economics 101...
  8. Idk if it's just Linus' voice or the way it's captured and edited but it hits some sort of a speaker resonance @ mid frequency and sounds pretty bad on smaller speakers like the ones on laptops. Other frequencies are fine (e.g. deeper or thinner voices, music, except for Linus pretty much)
  9. Quite fun to play with, can't really do any heavy work with them but most are sufficient to run most kinds of storage servers. Not really designed to replace normal desktop pcs, but rather handy for nifty testing. There are some Chinese versions if you want to spare money, but from what I've seen they all work as well as their specs go. Make sure it has all I/O interfaces you would need. They don't really wear out, their specs might make them useless before they would get damaged, it's all electronics so time does very little damage. Don't really heat up too much. I think that most are priced pretty adequately.
  10. Yes, they have changed for good or for worse. I'd say they have evolved though. From a production standpoint they have massively improved over the years. Their content has been readjusted for a broader audience and that leads to some unhappy folks who liked the old style. They don't really have a choice though. You have to constantly change in order to remain relevant and interesting especially when you're one of the top channels in a given category. I've played WoW for many years and the same has happened there in the course of years - the game has changed and adapted to broader audience again to remain relevant and interesting because face it - no one is gonna play exactly the same thing over and over again for years and be excited about it. I don't like the new expansions really, I didn't say they made it right, I said they had to do something different. Same goes with youtube channels. I've followed some for years and the same thing has happened there, but you can't blame them, they are trying to evolve. It is a business after all. Those who stayed the same lost it after a while and their channels died... Change is inevitable for one's survival, however careful one must be how change they interpret. Fans like it to be stuck in a phase they enjoy, but in reality with successful channels/products it's always a constant transition between phases. If they were to be stuck for real, fans wouldn't like it forever. You only realize this when it happens and then it's even worse when they refuse to change in order to remain relevant and then perish. Gone they are, instead they could've been not exactly everyone's good ol' days thing but still out there and kickin'.
  11. I thought we could just throw old and new standards, with or without comparisons, keep adding new ones as they come up,you know...keep it alive and turn it into a standards zen palace or sth we could come back to if we make it deep enough so that it's actually useful for everybody occasionally.
  12. Hey y'all! I've been thinking about how confusing some standardizations have gotten over the years and I'm often finding myself googling some. So I thought - why don't we gather the most important ones in a thread? Imo tables and organized text in pictures as compact as possible would be best. So post any you think of. E.g. PCI Generations, usb, sata, resolutions and aspect ratios, etc...
