    The 2018 Butterfly Keyboards still have a problem

    I went to the Apple Store a little while back. Here is what I found: +iPhone XR is LEGIT! +The resolution & pixel density differences between all of Apple's newest phones are negligible to the trained eye, unnoticeable to the untrained one. +The iPad Pro is LEGIT! +I still hate trackpads. +I still hate Apple's Magic Mouse. +I felt like I was gonna break the MacBooks (any of them) if I pressed a key too hard. To be honest, my style of typing isn't touch-typing; rather, I'd call it "finger-punching." I pretty much punch every key I type with a finger (any finger, really) except for the spacebar which I hit with the side of my thumb, as is traditional. For me, I can't tell if I hit a key or not with Apple's new MacBooks; the keys are too flat! And because they're too flat, I feel like I could punch a finger through a key and break the "butterfly switch," even though I subconsciously know that I won't. Not my cup of tea.

      @Spotty Idk what you are talking about, ET is the best game ever made.

    4. ARikozuM

      ARikozuM

      YEA! At least ET has records under its belt! 

       

      First game to fill a landfill? Check.

      Least wanted holiday video game? Check. 

      First to crash the games market? FUCKING CHECKED!

  3. Well, at least they create a solution at all. It's not like they're Bethesda or EA trying to say "iT's A fEaTuRe!" I actually think it's a brilliant idea, and I don't think it looks ugly. Doesn't look much different from the phone cases with card holders on the back. Still wouldn't buy it, though. Would never pay $130 for a friggin phone case!
  4. Looks like I'll be looking for ANOTHER mouse this summer. 😡

     

    The Razer Atheris would be the PERFECT wireless gaming mouse IF:

     

    +The battery life was better.  (up to 175 hours per AA battery, which is underwhelming)

    +The wireless USB receiver wasn't cheap sh*t! (It won't let go of the USB port, and IT'S LITERALLY FALLING APART.)

    +The mouse didn't have any rubber.  The rubber makes my hands sweaty and pales in comparison to my wired Logitech G203 Prodigy's plastic grips.  I end up squeezing the mouse so that it doesn't slip from my hand.

    +The mouse had good build quality. (The mouse's sides make a little crinkling noise when I grip it.)

    +Razer Synapse was good software.  (It's ok...)

    +Razer's wireless mouse drivers weren't TOTAL SH*T!!!  (driver-related connectivity issues)

     

    Seriously, my Atheris's wireless reception is choppy, and it used to be worse.  Updated the mouse's drivers, which improved the reception, but didn't fix it.  And forget about the Bluetooth reception; it still SUCKS!

     

    What a waste of $40 for a cordless, portable mouse! 🙄  (Yes, it was a waste.  Aside from the now deal-breaking cord, the $30 G203 was a much better investment.)

     

    I had heard that Razer had been going downhill, but that their mice were rebounding.  They weren't.  The days of the amazing Razer Copperhead are long gone!  Goodbye, Razer!!!

     

    Ok, so, what's gonna be my replacement?  The Logitech G305! :D   250 hours per AA battery, and wireless connectivity WILL be better based on reviews.  (Also, Logitech has proven themselves to be masters when it comes to USB wireless receivers for mice.)  Not to mention that it's got a better optical sensor AND that it is a wireless, upgraded version of my beloved G203! :D 

     

    Also, Logitech knows how to make f**king software, which Razer has failed miserably at!

     

    The two things I will miss about the Atheris:

     

    1. The design (shape & size).

    2. It has the best goddamn scroll wheel I've ever used!

    1. Origami Cactus

      Have you used the scroll wheel on high end logitech mouses? You can completely free the scrollwheel, so it just continues spinning after you give it a good speed.

    2. Techstorm970

      Techstorm970

      @Origami Cactus I've seen that in reviews.  I've never used or tested out a mouse that has that feature.  My first impression is that I'd find it annoying and end up scrolling too much 80% of the time, but maybe I'd get used to it.  Again, never tried it, so all I can do is guess.

      so basically what @Techstorm970 wants is a Logitech G900/903. Alright...

  5. @Tech_Dreamer No, Nvidia is still Dipshit of the Month...

      I was struggling to find dipshits for a few months...

      Now all of them are coming out at once...

      WTF do I do?!?!?!

  7. Yeah, usually it's the indie games that you have to worry about more in that regard.
  8. Ultrawides are a fun idea to entertain, I agree! But they can be hard to justify for many of us. The 1440p standard would be your best bet if you do much gaming; 1600p could cause unforeseen issues. Although, if you do more with the VHS tapes than you do with games, then the 1600p monitor's--err--"more square-ish" shape would be great. Edit: Changed "cubic" to "square-ish." We're talking 2D here, not 3D!
  9. Which do you want more? Higher resolution or greater multitasking capabilities?

    Intel I6 9600K Idle on 800 Mhz

    Oh Intel is doing power-saving stuff for desktop CPUs now??? Neat! Yeah my i7-8750H laptop CPU does stuff like that all the time. It's a 2.2GHz CPU, but runs at 1.4GHz on idle (if not lower) and is currently wavering between 1.5GHz and 2.9GHz. Feature is pretty cool, actually!
  11. Wait, is that Yuri from Doki Doki, except she's a cat girl?
