    I am a sloths

    In moving -slow he has no Peer.

    You ask him something in his ear,

    He thinks about it for a year;

    And , then, before he says a word

    There, upside down(unlike bird),

    He will assume that you have heard

    A most Ex-as-per-at-ing Lug.

    But should you call his manner smug,

    He'll sigh and give his Branch a hug ;

    Then off again to sleep he goes,

    still swaying gently by his toes,

    And you just know he know he knows.

  1. Yes it should, 660 works and the difference between 660 and 661 is minuscule. https://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/optix/en/optiplex-980-tech-guide.pdf https://www.techspot.com/review/233-intel-core-i5-661/
  2. Use Media Creation Tool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5N_RsrdXEY Just do it, its not bad as everyone says, Windows 10 bring more than just security.
  3. I think we should give the users a choice, getting a quick 30% before going somewhere is always nice. Most people will choose the more efferent/ faster alternative, especially in out fast moving world. I remember being impressed by my s3 being able to wirelessly charge.
  4. You have an engineering degree? Do you know how wireless charging work? Love that video, watched it at least 10 times.
  5. Wireless charging being more efficient than wired is like saying wireless WiFi being faster than Ethernet, its possible but will take a while, we are not their yet. Its how tech works, wireless takes a lot more energy than wired. How it works -https://www.computerworld.com/article/3235176/wireless-charging-explained-what-is-it-and-how-does-it-work.html I was talking more about airpods, apple doesn't replace batteries on airpods, they give you replacements. Proof? show me a phone that has faster wireless charging than wired. Tesla's are electric cars that can use renewable energy to recharge them self, most cars are moving toward electric. Age of gas is coming to an end. I agree, instead of moving ports companies should focus on something like a fordable device. Iphone 11 pro max looks like a kids toy next to a galaxy fold. My saying goes more toward, doing stupid thing in the name of innovation like the touch bar, removing ports, most pros have 50 dongles to get the functionality back.
  6. No No Unless your phone is modular, its not possible. Buy a new phone.
  7. I was talking about the whole port less thing not just apple. Also my statement was more about airpods and how they become almost useless after few years of use. I know, samsung does the same thing with its own headphones, which is a fault of Bluetooth. Pure bluettoth headphones are shit that's why companies use proprietary tech to make something much better, that's bad for consumers. My wired headphones don't have that issue, plug and chug. Thare is a lot of latency doing something like that, you might not notice it but i do. I have tried airpods with an iphone X and s9+ but at the end of the day wired is superior and environmentally friendlier due to not having a built in expiry date, lets not forget about better sound quality.
  8. Good but Acer is known for making cheap computers that doesn't last long. How about a Chromebook? Asus Vivobook S15 looks good https://www.amazon.ca/Asus-VivoBook-Light-R3-3200U-Radeon/dp/B07RWJY3ZQ/ref=sr_1_16?keywords=laptop&qid=1575753129&smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&sr=8-16 See if you can find last years HP x360 on clearance sale with a 2500u.
  9. Looks good i am assuming You got a good deal on it?
  10. Whats your use case? Why not used? look for a used x260.
  11. "we care about the environment" , Climate change is real and this will screw things up even more. Headphones like airpods are useless after a few years due to the lithium battery. Wireless future is good,long as we have a good solution, right now wireless is trash. Pros - cleaner looking - easier to use with a single device( or multiple modern device, BT still takes time to connect) - makes apple lots of profit Cons - Bad for the environment( this is a huge deal, actions speak louder than words) - Difficult to use with multiple older devices, something like my DSI can't use wireless headphones. - Planned opalescence( batteries will degrade) -Proprietary chips( airpods have better experience with iphone than an android phone due to W1 chip, experience will vary widely) - Fast charging can only be so fast, wireless changers have a hard limit especially if you use a portable changer. - Latency, wireless headphones still have latency even if its slight. At the end of the day if it ain't broke, don't fix it /don't screw over the planet.
  12. Would you suggest an iphone 8 as a test phone? I am really happy with the s9 plus, sold my iphone X because someone bought it for 700$( bought it used for 500 so made 200$ profit, this is all CAD) Its nice to have an iphone to test out IOS, so what do you think? 7 plus is a bit too old, what would you say is a fair price for a 8? Also love the classic design, notch never grew on me. 

    1. DrMacintosh


      Below $330 depending on capacity and if it's a Plus model or not. 7 Plus is fine since it still gets 3GB of RAM. The A10 Fusion is still overkill for iOS. 

  13. How about something with a micro SD slot. SE can't sure much music due to the small storage size.
  14. Boot camp is a mess due to severe thermal limitation, Drivers are crap, i wouldn't recommend a mac for gaming. The 16 also dosen't have a 4k display, which sucks for such a expensive machine. OP i suggest looking at asus zephyrus, Aero 15x, Xps 15 will be good enough for 4k editing.
