    XBox Game Pass for PC - The Netflix of games (low price)

    This is a great deal for college students who don’t have time to play during the semester. Pay for the subscription during the summer and get caught up on the games that are available, cancel before the fall semester starts.

    This is the PC killer (Haha JK) - The Xbox Scarlett

    It might be a small Navi vs big Navi difference or it can be a custom design for consoles

    This is the PC killer (Haha JK) - The Xbox Scarlett

    They didn’t specify the resolution for 120 Hz. Could just be 1080p 120

    [ended] Apple WWDC 2019 Livethread?

    I wonder if that power slot is 12v on the pins. I could see a company making adapters that break out that slot into standard power connectors for newer GPUs in the future.
  5. The base config mac pro has always made the least amount of sense as is. The pricing for the high core count version is where it could get interesting (or just alright), or just get the cheapest version and put in a Xeon w-3175x yourself. I can't wait for all the youtube videos bashing the base model by comparing it to 8 core ryzen chips or 9900Ks. Not the most accurate comparison but still valid even without more than dual channel memory, ECC memory and fewer PCIe lanes.

    4k tv that doesn't violate my privacy?

    Vizio lets you disable their content detection software and you can treat it as a dumb tv. I have a E43-f1

    Which used GPU's should my friend buy?

    I would recommend the 390's over the 290's due to larger frame buffer. They are really good deals used.
  9. Stability, I used to use edge a year or so ago but switched back to chrome due to edge having to reload web-pages a lot. NFL website and other sites that hosted videos that weren't major video platforms were the most common to crash. The speed for me was in the range that was acceptable, and the UI is good and stays out of the way. I would use FF but the UI just drives me nuts. It feels like it takes up more screen space and is distracting.
  10. what GPU is being used with it? Spending more on the GPU might get you closer to the 240 fps mark for more games. If the game is CS:GO then the previous statement would be invalid as more GPU doesn't fix that.
  11. How long until someone takes one apart and gives it the liquid metal treatment like Quinn of Snazzy Labs has done before
  12. Some people must have the worst luck with them then, I haven't purchased a cable in years. I still use the Apple cable that came with my iPad Air 2 in 2014.
  13. I would laugh if all the rumors of usb c charging amounts to a type c to lighting cable being included with devices.
  14. cool My 7 is only two months old but I might pay $29 at the end of next year for a first party battery replacement if it is that cheap. People will still blow this up and call planned obsolescence even though it was designed to maintain usability.

    Yes, iPhone 7s sold through AT&T have Intel modems, the rest had Qualcomm modems
