    Hahahaha. I thought I was running 144hz on my new monitor. Everything felt smooth. Turns out the driver update/reboot reset it to 60fps, and the smoothness was just the nice pixel response/change times. Setting it to 144 in settings + Rocket League, and it's even better.

    Apple credit card review:
     
    Its a DOA product. Completely useless. We already have much better credit cards from other banks with better cash back rates.
     
    If you want 2% back everyware, you can get the Citi Doublecash. 2% back everywhere and no need to use apple pay. Thats 1% more than the apple card for everything.
     
    Okay how about that 3% at apple.com? Well you should get yourself the US bank cash+ which has a 5% back category for electronics stores. Thats 2% more than the apple card.
     
    Want more than 2% back everywhere you say? Okay, but its gonna cost you.
     
    Alliant credit union has a card that will get you 2.5% back on everything, for a $99 annual fee. In order to "break even" with this card, you will need to spend $19,800 every year to earn the same cash back rate as the citi doublecash. Ever dollar After $19800 brings you closer to earning 2.5% (hint. You will never truly earn 2.5% because of the annual fee).
     
    Bank of america also has a travel rewards credit card that earns 1.5 points per dollar which can be converted to 1.5 cents per dollar or 1.5% cash back. The magic happens if you have over 100K with BofA. If you have over 100K with BofA, they will increase your cash back rate by 75% meaning you are now earning 2.625% back on every purchase. The downside is you have to keep 100K in assets with BofA or Merrill lynch.
     
    The travel hacking community has already thrown this card into the "useless product" category and all the travel bloggers stopped talking about the card awhile ago. Doctorofcredit.com made a post about the card when it was first announced but hasnt talked about it since. The apple credit card is a dumb product that doesn't deserve to exist. End of story.
     
    Yet apple fanbous will still sign up for it when there are better cards available today.

    Ah, that's better... the 32GB is like the min disk space for a new device, to try and stop those 16gb impossible to update/use devices:
    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/windows-10-may-2019-update-storage-requirement-install,39576.html
    Not really asking existing users with 64/128gb SSDs to give up space for updates, just stopping OEMs from making more systems with only 16gb (thin laptops/netbooks with dire specs).
