  1. https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-brings-galaxy-to-more-people-introducing-galaxy-s10-lite-and-note10-lite Samsung Electronics today announced the new Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite. Building on the legacy of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series, these Galaxy Lite models bring key premium features such as the latest camera technology, signature S Pen, immersive display and a long-lasting battery at an accessible price point. My Thoughts: Just what we need, more versions of the same phone. Also I find it strange that they are releasing this so close to an apparent Feb launch of the galaxy S11. I'm not too sure how big of a market there is for a cheaper version of the Note10, but time will tell. Also way to steal the naming convention from Nintendo!
  2. I appreciate Grey's explanation, but when he speaks about not being able to understand how it works, that's completely false. You can learn how it works, it just takes a lot of time to do so. It's far from magic.
  3. As a programmer, it drives me crazy how everyone is talking about A.I. but no one talks about the difficultly involved. It drives me insane how people talk like it's just around the corner, but we cannot qualify what consciousness is, let alone how to develop or emulate it. The first part of programming is understanding the problem, and we cannot yet understand consciousness. All of this is so far off that I'd be shocked if anything comes anywhere close to a general intelligence during my life time. I view these articles as wishful thinking at best.
  4. Keyed for professional stuff. Most ports that are used professionally are only plugged in once.
  5. Oh man, I'm old. My first "custom built" PC had a Intel Pentium Pro. I believe it was 150MHz, 400MB HDD, and I think 4MB of ram. 1996 was a good year. But my FIRST pc was a hand me down Commadore 128. I believe it was around 1992, and my uncle, who had a lot more money than my family did, gave it to me as a birthday present. Here we are 27 years later, and I work in the industry as a programmer, and I pretty much owe it all to that Commadore.
  6. That won't happen. Apple is as much a fashion statement as it is a technology company. If they changed the design to a circle, it'd be hard to tell the difference between other watches, and that's something apple would never do.
  7. How is it that Canon is releasing a mirror-less that is still worse than Sony's. Come on already!
  8. It's not just Epic games, it's also: Riot Games Activision Blizzard Ubisoft Paradox interactive Supercell So hopefully all of you will not just boycott Epic, but also all the other companies Tencent has major steaks in.
  9. The problem is that Facebook, YouTube and Google are now acting more like Publishers, but don't want to be held liable as publishers. They are avoiding the regulation and responsibility that all publishers face, while also curating content. They want the Platform label, but want Publisher control. That's the issue here. Nothing more, nothing less.
  10. Battery tech is holding us back. My friend has a prosthetic arm, and the battery life is pretty bad. It's not impossible to manage, but it's far from perfect. I don't see anyone wanting to upgrade to a robot arm when you can only use it for 6 hours at a time.
  11. Ok, but an i5 4770k is being shown as better than an i7 4770k (https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-4770K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-4670K/1537vs1538). That's insane. I mean no one in their right mind would recommend an i5 4670k right now, but non-tech people use this to make purchasing decisions, and that's a problem. Add in the fact that next gen consoles are going to be on Zen 2, and not jaguar, multi core + multi threads are going to be the way of the future.
  12. Hard drive failure, battery issue, Wifi issue, charging port issue (which probably led to the battery issue). The nearest Apple store is 10 hours away, so it's kinda been a pain.
  13. Just let us repair i devices without making it so damn hard to get components! My wife has a MacBook pro and that thing has caused me nothing but problems.
