  1. Focus group for a company name

    .it or .io
  2. Focus group for a company name

    A play on the word illuminate is pretty overdone. I actually quite like Dreme.
  3. Casey Neistat's camera vid

    Don't think it can really be considered false advertisement. You think if Samsung made a TV commercial with this same concept they would be above trying every possible way to make the IPhone seem worse? It's clearly indicated that it's a sponsored video, you shouldn't expect actual info from it anyways IMO.
  4. SuperFlower PSU

    Eco mode seems a little sketchy to me. I have an EVGA PSU (their OEM is Superflower if I'm not mistaken) and I've noticed that it gets pretty warm when I engage Eco mode and the fan turns off. Since the fan is pretty much silent anyway I just leave it on.
  5. 280 character tweets like or hate?

    In general it seems like a smart move from Twitter to stay relevant. People are currently being annoying with the "look at me I'm so clever I figured out how to press period then enter lots of times and my tweet is really long isn't that funny" tweets, but I think the novelty will wear off pretty soon and it'll be just plain helpful.
  6. I currently have the PC with the Pentium in it. The PC has no storage and therefore no OS so it would be kind of a pain to set it up and test, figured I would see what people think first.
  7. Right, but the objective is to spend the least amount of money on the system while still giving them a good experience. I don't need a GPU for that, but a might need a better CPU if the Pentium is a problem, that's what I'm asking.
  8. May I ask why? I figure the iGPU will be plenty powerful, no?
  9. USB-C Cable missing pins

    Makes sense. Considering the type-A side is bright blue, I would hope it at least does USB 3
  10. I acquired a random SFF Dell PC that I'm planning to make into an HTPC for the family, since they're currently running one of those awful Samsung smart TV's with poor performance, a stupid UI and endless issues. It has a Pentium G3220 currently. Assuming that it's accompanied by an SSD and ample amounts of RAM, would that CPU be sufficient for 1080p TV/movie streaming? Or should a little more be spent on an upgrade to an i3?
  11. USB-C Cable missing pins

    No no I meant my first and second photo, not the diagrams. Wouldn't both of my connectors be male? Interesting, this $6 cable I bought off Amazon has all the pins. I wonder...
  12. USB-C Cable missing pins

    Didn't know that, good thing I don't use it much.
  13. USB-C Cable missing pins

    The second one does, the first definitely does not. That makes sense, I do get pretty poor transfer speeds off the 6P. That's probably it.
  14. USB-C Cable missing pins

    Is it maybe because the old cable is type C to C, while the new one is C to A?
  15. USB-C Cable missing pins

    I bought a nice braided USB-C cable, and I noticed that it has many more pins than the charging cable my Nexus 6P came with. Old cable: New cable: Does this equate to a difference in potential data transfer speeds and/or power delivery? What's the reason for this?
