    Sorry, Razer.. I’m not switching

    GeForce Now runs on anything. It worked fine on my old Sandy Bridge Intel HD Graphics

    Sorry, Razer.. I’m not switching

    I disagreed with most of the things Linus didn't like over the previous model, especially the keyboard layout. Full sized arrow keys over a right shift any day of the week. The squashed top/bottom layout is the worst. I also prefer a non-glossy screen over touch support. Working in sunlight is just so much easier with an anti-glare display, plus they look much better. Also glad Razer ditched that cringe-worthy B L A D E branding.

    Why did you buy an Android phone?

    Imagine getting on the train, looking around you, and noticing that everyone's phone looks the exact same as yours. I would rather not have a phone. Also, on principle I will never buy any "computer" with a locked down bootloader. As far as I'm concerned, iPhones (and phones from other manufacturers such as Huawei and HMD) are pretty much bricks. Even if you're not going to install a custom ROM, you should care about this.

    IDE in 2018?

    Thanks for the quick replies! This doesn't seem like a practical or cost-effective solution, so I don't think I'll be going with this.

    IDE in 2018?

    Hi, I'm thinking of building a PC and realized I have a couple old IDE hard drives from 2001ish sitting in my basement. One is 64GB and one is 256GB. Would it be practical to put these hard drives in my system and use them as extra storage (alongside an SSD for boot/most programs and data)? I mean, who doesn't like free storage, right? Are modern motherboards incompatible with IDE? (The system would most likely use an A320 or B350 motherboard.) If so, could I get some sort of PCIe card with IDE connectors? Would this be practical at all? I remember trying to work with IDE a long time ago and it was a huge pain - changing the boot drive required rearranging the actual hard drives in the PC (though that probably won't be necessary lol). Could I create a RAID 0 array with these drives and another SATA hard drive I have lying around, or would that be a stupid idea? (Maybe a JBOD-type solution would be better?)

    Display Technology FAQ / Mythbuster

    This reminded me of something I was wondering that's kinda the opposite of this. I have a monitor with a resolution of 1440x900 - it's a 16:10 monitor, so 16:9 video would play at a resolution of 1440x810 (1440/16*9=810). But when I play 1080p video on YouTube (1920x1080), it looks noticeably sharper than 720p video. Why is this? 1440x900 is less than a quarter of the area of 1920x1080, and 1280x720 is much closer.
