    Is Downloading YT videos safe?

    If YouTube wanted to prevent users to download videos from their platform, they probably would have found a way to block this. I think it's fine as long as long as you don't do something that's against their ToS like republishing them or making money out of them.

    Nvidia to launch GTX 1660 Ti; 1060 Replacement?

    So I just came across that article implying that the 1660 could be as powerful as the Titan X : https://www.tomshardware.com/news/gtx-1660-ti-leaked-benchmarks-pricing,38630.html Thoughts?

    What to check when buying a used phone

    Do these get altered with time? How does smoking affect the phone? As for animals I think you are referring to cosmetic alterations?

    What's everybody's SSID called?

    Everytime I get a new router, I name it after the hero of the last movie or series I watched. So the one I'm using now is named "Beck" (Tron Uprising) but there has been "Hugo" (Hugo Cabret) and Bilbon (French version of Bilbo).
  5. Hi I've seen that shop selling both used and new smartphones. I'm interested in a used Galaxy S8 for around $340 with a guarantee. Now for an extra $25 I can buy a new battery and replace it the old one. I think I'd be good to go with all that but I'm curious to know what else can get old in a smartphone and if there's anything I should test before buying it. Thanks

    Apex Legends Disco PC!

    It happens to me too. I think they will address this along the way because there are many other glitches and stuff to fix for now: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/bd-p/apex-legends-bug-reports-en

    Dealing with Depression

    Nope, it doesn't have to be expensive. Anyone can travel, regardless of your budget. If you can't afford to visit another continent, you can't visit a country nearby. If you can't visit a country nearby, you can visit a town nearby. If you can visit a town nearby, you can visit a neighborhood nearby. I don't know, the point is there's always something to discover. Wherever you go, you don't have to do the most expensive things.

    Dealing with Depression

    I also think that life's too short to limit yours to work. Have you considered travelling, going to a different country/continent to find out what life has to offer. Maybe your happiness isn't where you are currently.

    How to test a used graphics card?

    Thanks guys I think I'll give this a try
  11. Hi, I'm considering buying a GPU on eBay and I can see many good deals on used hardware. I'm particularly interested in an RX580 that has been used for mining during 3 months according to the seller. I like the fact that eBay offers a good warranty but I want to make sure that there won't be issues after the warranty period. So I want to know if there are any tests I can do or things to look at to estimate the quality/durability of the product. Thanks
  12. I've often seen similar questions on this forum. Learning a language is nothing, what matters is learning programming concepts. Programming languages are only a matter of syntax and they all have their specificities, however if you are a good programmer you can learn a new language in just a couple hours, or maybe less. You might not know all its specificities but you should still be able to write complex applications if you are comfortable with the complex (or not) programming concepts/data structures, etc. So to answer your question, learning a new language won't get you more confused or make your learning harder as long as you do it the right way, which is mostly through practice and personal projects.

    Motorola announces the Moto G7

    That's the question

    Motorola announces the Moto G7

    Considering that many of these phone makers like Xiaomi or Honor sell their devices on the European market, there's no excuse for Motorola. Plus Motorola can now be considered a Chinese manufacturer considering they have been acquired by a Chinese brand.

    Actually the G7 and G7 Plus have 1080p screens.
