  1. Man....I was just entering adulthood when the PS2 came out. Feel so old right now....its not even nostalgic for me because it doesn't bring me back to childhood.
  2. From what I have heard so far, one important difference(other than the obvious) between the regular S20 and S20+ is in regards to 5G support. The S20+ and Ultra support both lower and higher band 5G. The regular S20 only supports one......but I forget which one now. ? Edit: Looks like the regular S20 only supports the lower bands. mmwave(high band) is only on the S20+ and Ultra, though reportedly a later release(later this year?) of the S20 will also support both? I don't expect 5G to be a widespread thing until like late 2021 or 2022 anyways. At least here in Canada.
  3. I'm currently using an iPhone 6s and it received the latest ios update 13.3. This phone is like, what, 5 years old now? Pretty good update life. Too bad I hate iOS with a passion vs android. Stuck with it until my s20 arrives though. They probably think 2 major updates is enough for most people because it seems that the general public switch to a new phone roughly every 2-3 years anyways.
  4. Do we have any news about this causing delays for the Galaxy S20 release? I had it preordered at bestbuy for the bonus items and just got an email last night saying my order will be delayed 2-3 weeks "due to overwhelming popularity".....yesterday was supposed to be the shipping date with the 6th being the release date. I can't find any news on it at all yet, but its still early morning in north america.
  5. I just don't see the point of it....would you use it for some kind of compute work? But its a laptop and the formfactor would have all kinds of issues with heat and limiting performance and all that.... What would be the use case for this to exist in a mass-produced form? I could see some kind of show-off device for a convention but to be available to purchase...... Who is this thing for where they wouldn't just be using a workstation/server machine instead at a much reduced price? Imagine leaving this thing in your car and having it stolen. My buddy just got his wallet stolen cause he left it in his car overnight like a dummy.
  6. Huh. A laptop for over $20k? Neat. I'd rather spend that on an unfinanced brand new 2020 model year car, though.
  7. I mean, do bad guys ever have a product placement on them? Maybe a car but they are always using what appears to be a generic phone, you never see them drinking coke or pepsi or whatever and if they have alcohol its always in a special multi-use bottle as they pour it into a glass, never the original wine bottle or crown or something. Not really surprising to me, just apple is more of an everyday product for most people so it stands out more
  8. Wow that's pretty scary but it seems to be a vulnerability more regarding hardware, not WPA2 as a security protocol. If it was the protocol itself, everything would be affected. Just looked up the hardware on my home router and its Qualcomm so I am good to go, providing all my receiving devices are clear as well but its somewhat hard to find what radio your TV uses......or hell my consoles too. I have to look up everything.
  9. This is pretty awesome. I wish I could have done this with Wolcen but it was on steam. I might rebuy it later but right now and for the foreseeable future it is a huge buggy mess where half the stuff doesn't work. Reminds me of Anthem, which I also bought into cause I'm bad at this. I have to wonder if it is going to make developers/publishers reconsider having their games on GOG though. Too risky and open for abuse?
  10. This is pretty awesome and I'm excited to see what can be done with it. Inb4 bought from dude and patented by some huge corporation but keeps selling for 200k/tonne and no one can ever use this method.
  11. The irony of this is not lost on me and I am finding it quite hilarious. But yeah didn't expect to see Canada up there. Part of my humble Canadian nature, perhaps.
  12. Oneplus wants to have a word with you. The Oneplus One came with Cyanogen as the pre-installed base OS. I had one, and it even had "Cyanogen" engraved on the back of the sandstone grey rear panel. Sadly I sold the phone a few years ago or I would take a picture. Late models of the One lost the Cyanogen label, though, and they broke their partnership not long after and Oneplus created OxygenOS instead. I heard of the Essential phone awhile back but never really looked into it. Was it basically an upstart phone maker like OnePlus was ~5-6 years ago but had their own OS? Edit: Photo from google.

  13. I mean, to be fair...all you need to do to get around the missing headphone jack is a little dongle adapter. While there are a lot of bulky horrible/cheap ones, there are some nice slim ones that work well and some phone manufacturers even pack it in the box for you. Expandable storage is not really something you can conveniently add like that after the fact so I think its the more important thing they are cutting out. That being said, personally on-board phone storage has been enough for me ever since we progressed to 64gb models as the standard. I do take some videos and photos, but I tend to delete the old ones after a few months and even with all my music I'm usually around 20-30gb free on a 64 gig phone. With the new standard being(probably) 128gb or higher, I honestly don't see an issue. One exception being those 8k videos on the S20....if you take a lot of those you'll probably need the 512 model + the expandable storage(at least in north America it has an SD card slot) Missing headphone jack kind of sucks but honestly really not a big deal with the wide availability of quality dongles on places like amazon. People seem to think that no headphone jack means wireless headphones only, and I understand the aversion to wireless. Charging them and keeping track of them can be a real hassle sometimes but jesus just use a damn dongle for Christ's sakes and quit your crying about it. That connector came out in the 50s and as much as I'd like to keep it around for ease of use, too, losing it in modern 2020 smart devices is not a big deal with the alternatives available.
  14. I can completely understand this reaction. For people who have never been to a large convention before, you (or someone you know) almost always gets sick from it. Tons of people all handling the same thing and no body washing their hands for hours? There is something called the PAX flu(also GDQ Flu) but it basically applies to all conventions/large gatherings of people from around the world.
  15. Hmm how I Interpret this statement is that they are planning on pricing the new Xbox in a completely different bracket above the PS5 and way more expensive than the switch or their next Gen and this is partially how they justify it.
