I think I'm done with Apple mobile hardware for good. Sticking to my iPod Touch 2G now...
Cyber Monday? More like, Normie-Cringe Monday
Might be able to buy the fans soon if my saving projections were right
Just updated the ProBook 6475b to Windows 10 v1909. Not seeing any glaring issues from the very start - which is good. There's also the fact that I did not have to reinstall any of my applications this time, in opposed to all of the previous major updates. Very much appreciated. Perhaps Microsoft is finally learning from their mistakes If this keeps up, I might actually stop ragging on them as much as I usually do But only if they keep this trend up. The only thing that prevents this laptop from completely concealing its age is the lag fest that ensues when Windows 10 decides to pin the poor HDD Then I'm stuck wishing I had a 2TB SSD, instead of a 2TB HDD. But SSD's of large capacity come at a price...
Man - Google really knows how to make homelab step it up. They sat there and announced that they're axing Google Cloud Print Time to pull up a replacement for it - CUPS anyone? Maybe start a coalition of CUPS-equipped printing networks soon, so that we can print from anywhere /s on the last sentence

@mariushm I think there is some confusion surrounding this. As stated here: https://www.techpowerup.com/241444/amd-ryzen-raven-ridge-comes-with-a-limited-pcie-interface Iirc, the APU's built-in graphics are using Infinity Fabric, not PCI-e lanes. The hypothetical bottleneck, however, still remains.
On PC, games slowly improve in graphics and features over time because there are no distinct generations per se and they just target the best of the moment, which is constantly improving. On console, games also improve in graphics and features over time despite the fact that hardware is set in stone for large chunks of years at a time because the developers slowly learn how to properly harness the potential of the more complex systems
Studios must really be happy that these days the architectures in the xbox, playstation, and PC are all basically the same. In theory, this should means everyone gets the best possible outcome every time, and from day one, and that the idea of "bad ports" are a thing of the past, but sadly it doesn't seem to be the case for some reason.
Don't Sexism, Racism, ect., have to do with both action and intent? As in, the action has to be taken specifically against one or more parties (not by accident or due to a unintentionally bad dataset), with the intent of negatively impacting said party (ei., purposeful use of a biased dataset, to target women)? The algorithm itself can't be racist or sexist, for it has not intention. Said qualities must be applied to its creators. But then you'd have to prove that the accused party intended for the algorithm to setback a specific party. That it wasn't a mistake/poor design. Are we mincing words here?
Okay - just got my hands on a network-unlocked LG v20. Time to get hacky-hacky :3 First, Imma nuke it and throw on the latest TWRP for it. Then, it's either AOSP, AOSP Ex., or LineageOS. Shooting for either Android 8 or 9 (since it appears that LG took their sweet time pushing updates) in this case, so no Android 10 in this case. Definitely looking to ditch the Play Store if possible, but I do use some apps that require it for purchase verification. Might have to leave a minimal version of it on the system, along with 2-3 other app stores of my choice. Will probably be rooting it, since some of my preferred apps and functionalities require root. Definitely have more room for apps than the Nexus 7 2013, so might have more included apps With that, here's the plan so far...
- OEM Unlock the bootloader (wipes the phone)
- Flash the ROM
- Flash the SU package and BusyBox
- Add my preferred ROM apps (apps that should remain after a reset)
- Pickin app stores and user apps
Included Apps will probably include the following:
Google Cloud PrintGoogle's killing this service
- Google Play Services + Services for Instant Apps
- Google Play Books
- Android System WebView
- Google Drive
- Google Chrome Dev
- Google Assistant
- Google In Apps
- Accessibility Suite
- Google Calculator
- Google Camera
- Google Lens
- Google Clock
Android Keyboard (AOSP)SUX
- Google Contacts + Contacts Sync
- Google Now Launcher
- FM Radio (AOSP/ROM)
- Gallery (AOSP/ROM)
- Quick Remote (ROM)
- Google Hangouts + Voice (screw Duo)
- Hangouts Dialer
- Aurora Store
- AppBrain App Market
- Terminal Emulator
- Google Earth
- ES File Explorer Pro
- Voice Access
- Xposed Installer
- Hacker's Keyboard + English completion dictionary
