    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?
  3. 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

    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).

    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.
  10. 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

    How to test a used graphics card?

    Thanks guys I think I'll give this a try
  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

    Source: Android Authority Motorola just announced 3 different models for its Moto G7 lineup: Moto G7 Play: $199 Snapdragon 632 2GB of RAM 5.7" 720p screen 3000 mAh battery Moto G7 Power: $250 Snapdragon 632 3GB of RAM 6.2" 720p screen 5000 mAh battery Moto G7: $299 Snapdragon 632 4GB of RAM 6.2" 1080p screen 3000 mAh battery The phones aren't waterproof but they all include a headphone jack. They also don't have NFC, and are running Android Pie. The Moto G lineup used to be a big deal, but now I think that Motorola is losing the cheap phone market. What we're essentially getting is a set of boring phones that aren't particularly good at anything. I understand that you can't expect a lot at this price range, and actually the price was the main feature of the Moto G lineups. But now there are so many better offers that I find this lineup very hard to recommend against other Chinese devices. For me the only model that actually stands out here is the Power variant with its 5000 mAh battery (combined with a low-res screen and power efficient SoC) that should guarantee 2 days of use at the very least. But then at the same price you can get a Honor Play with 4GB of RAM and a 1080p screen. The regular G7 costs the same as the Pocofone, which features a high-end CPU, and for a little more you can even get a used OnePlus 6 or a LG G7 on sale. Now another good feature associated with these phones is the software aspect, but then again while you might keep receiving security patches, Motorola rarely releases more than one new Android versions for their devices. So overall I'm kind of disappointed with this announcement and I personally think that the best offer at this price range is the Honor Play or something like that. EDIT: There is another device in this lineup, the G7 Plus. This model won't be available in the US. It seems more interesting with a 6.2" Full HD+ screen, a Snapdragon 636, dual speakers, and a 3000 mAh battery with the latest Quick charge technology supporting up to 27W. The phone can be charged by up to 80% within 30 minutes, which I think is pretty impressive. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0 and has better front and rear facing cameras It has been reviewed here: Now at $250 this would have been a pretty appealing offer. It has a retail price of £270, which is on par with the Honor Play so to me there's some competition between the two but the Play is the clear winner considering that it has a more powerful SoC and is sometimes available at $250 or so. I think this is what the regular G7 should have been.

    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.

    You should try at least. I did it on the release day and they did assist me.

    Trying to Reconnect Error (Apex Legends)

    I run into this issue sometimes but then it disappears when I retry a few hours later. Have you contacted the EA customer support?

    How Do You Make Work Mornings More Enjoyable?

    Yes I wouldn't recommend it if you have to leave the house at a specific time.

    How Do You Make Work Mornings More Enjoyable?

    I'm in a situation that's both similar and different. I love my job but have a hard getting off my bed every morning and tried different approaches. What makes things even worse is that I work from home. Unlike what most people think, it's even harder to motivate yourself when working from home since you don't have to leave the house so you stay in that mood for a longer period of time and it's hard to get started. I'm still struggling with it, but I've come up with something last week: waking up an hour earlier and play Apex: Legends. It might sound weird, but for me it's much easier to think "I'll wake up to play a game" than "I'll wake up and get ready to work." I limit my sessions to about 30 minutes (2 games) and shouldn't really feel the urge to prolong them since I know that I'll be playing every morning. The good thing is that games like these require a lot of focus and it's good to get that level of alertness early in the morning.

    i5 8400 amd equivalent

    I would recommend getting the 2600X since B450 motherboards aren't the best for overclocking anyway and you would need to invest in an aftermarket cooler. Also, when overclocked the CPU tends to consume more power than it's factory overclocked counterpart.

    Then 8600K all the way. The difference is around $100 in some places.

    In pure gaming, the difference between the two shouldn't be very noticeable, but the 2600 is a lot cheaper, depending on where you live.

    In gaming, Intel processors tend to perform better than AMD ones on high end GPU's, but on this one the difference should be minimal. I would go for the 2600 or 2600X. Now if you're planning on upgrading your GPU later, you would be better off with a 2700 but the 2600X is a very solid option (it's an overclocked 2600).
