    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Grand Admiral Thrawn in Will Google's Chrome become second?   
    I think its an interesting question. Like why would I use Chrome after the Edge update? The experience will be the same except Sync will be done through a Microsoft account instead of Google, and the UI design will be slightly different. Pages will render exactly the same. You can get Edge on Android and iOS.
     
    The Windows integration likely will be better. Transparent Title Bar in a Chrome matching experience for the first time since Windows 7! 
     
    So I could see myself getting rid of Chrome, as what would be the point?

    Cannot agree with you there. The people giving the warning cannot be trusted. It does not matter who they are. All humans given power become corrupt and wield that power to their own ends. Which is why all the major fact finding sites like Politifact, are easily shown partisan hackery (seriously look up how many subjective statements are fact checked!).

    In games at that resolution, I wonder if you could just turn the resolution down in games though, and enjoy the massive resolution advantage for videos and photos.
     
    And even with the resolution lower, will it look better on the HP with upscaling and less visually noticeable pixel grid.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from GoodBytes in google stadia destroy console ??   
    They also say they will send 4K HDR at 60 FPS at 30 mbps. That is going to have noticeable compression artifacts. Also if you are game streaming for hours on end, you will hit your data cap, and then you got to pay the $50 I am to Comcast for unlimited, or whatever your ISP takes.
     
    So you may not even save money by not having to buy hardware, as your internet cost may increase! Mind you for the $50 Comcast charges for unlimited, Apple sells people a $1000 smartphone, Sony and Microsoft could do likewise sell $1000 consoles that outmatch anything Stadia provides, and does so at only $50 a month!

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Redrooster in I found a 230$ 1070   
    That sounds pretty good, and makes sense when you consider the 1660ti is roughly equivalent, around $280 in a smaller, less power hungry package.

    Why does Android have to do this and not Apple? At least Android lets you get software from someplace not Google without rooting your device.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Blademaster91 in NEW IPADS RELEASED!   
    I prefer the design with bezels for the iPad mini, using the old design it keeps the 3.5mm jack and TouchID and its kind of silly the iPad Pro doesn't have a 3.5mm jack. I think Samsung would have a chance at selling more tablets if they would give it their best SoC, even if the price increased $100 more.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from EarthWormJM2 in Dissenter - The comment section of the internet - And a severe game-changer for free speech   
    A truly great idea. Simple, yet extremely effective. The only issue is that it still relies on underlying internet infrastructure that is in the hands of the tech companies who are run by progressives. So I suspect if it ever gets popular they get thrown off whatever hosting support they had, whatever DDOS protection they have, mass DDOS'd, and blacklisted.
    Most countries sucking does not mean the internet has to suck. You do have a right to free speech, its a human right, its a god given right, you were born with it, and they have stolen it from you, and now tricked you into thinking it was good for you. Hate speech laws have never reduced hate, they have only ever reduced speech.

    Microsoft, puts free web browser and media player with Windows, allows customers to install any browser or media player they want.
     
    ANTITRUST TRIALS, MASSIVE FINES...
     
    Apple creates walled garden monopoly on iOS software distribution, customers can only install what Apple allows, charges developers 30% to get on platform, and then develops their own competing product which does not have to pay that 30%.
     
    ...
     
    What Apple is doing is far worse than anything Microsoft did, and you know it. The entire model is built around creating a software monopoly and then using that to make Apple's products more compelling. That they haven't been dragged into court over this before is quite remarkable.

    As a proud 5 year voter, I say tough cookies. No operating system should have to support OS updates and Security patches for consumer hardware that hasn't been on sale for 5 years. That is entirely unrealistic with the pace of change in the industry.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Glenwing in My 4k monitor only running 1080p   
    Looking at your monitor on Amazon, it says it has HDMI 1.4. HDMI 1.4 only supports 4k 30hz, and lacks the HDCP necessary for running 4k on the XBox. It is not compatible.

    Chett_Manly reacted to TheDailyProcrastinator in My review on the Noctua NF-F12 (and my resolution on ML or NF)   
    If you are looking to purchase Noctua fans I am sure you are well aware of their reputation, and specifically their beloved NF-F12 fans, and with good reason. You get a premium packaging and unboxing experience, and most importantly their extremely high-quality fan. All around I really love these fans but subjectively there is one reason I can’t give it a 5-star review. And that reason is the Corsair ML series fan.
     
    I will begin with the subjectiveness of my review, to say the ML is better is not a fact, simply my opinion. However, I will lay out some facts as to why I prefer the ML over the NF, but every person can interpret facts a little differently, and respectfully I have no issues with the NF-F12. 
     
    Anyways, for those of us that care about aesthetics the chromax edition of this fan is really the only option, I honestly could never bring myself to buying the standard puke brown version (for those of you that can look past that I applaud thee). But for your $29 (Canadian pesos) hard-earned dollars you get a nice assortment of colour swappable red, black, white, blue, yellow and green anti-vibration pads. This along with the 4-pin PWM cable extension all wrapped up in a nice large package. Out of the box performance is great, these bad boys move a lot of air and have performed excellently for my use. I have three of these as intakes against the mesh front panel of my Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG pulling air through my four 3.5” hard drive cages. This of course restricting some air flow and causing some more fan noise (to be expected), despite this my hard drive and internal case temps are respectable. I decided on these fans as they move a lot of air despite being very well static pressure optimized, perfect for being mounted in front of hard drive cages.
     
    But now I reason with the value of these fans. At $29 (at time of purchase) they represent a ‘premium’ 120mm option. At the time of this review the ML 120 2-pack is $37.50, which subjectively is just as quiet of a fan around 800ish RPM (my opinion) and looks pretty much the same, you just don’t get colour swappable anti-vibration pads. Blind math prices them at $18.75 each which is over a $10 saving per fan, so if you need four fans for your system this equals to a $40 difference. Now some of you would argue that you get what you pay for but to that, I would argue, “do you really?” and “is the price premium necessary?”.
     
    Let me throw some raw numbers into the equation:
     
    Corsair ML120 2-pack: (ML120 Pro series have the EXACT SAME specs)
    Price: $37.50cad (effectively $18.75 each) Speed: 400 - 2400 RPM Sound level: 37 dBA @ max RPM Static Pressure: 0.2 - 4.2 mmH20 Air flow: 75 CFM @ max RPM Warranty: 5-year  
    Noctua NF-F12 PWM Chromax:
    Price: $29cad Speed: 300 - 1500 RPM Sound level: 22.4 dBA @ max RPM Static Pressure: 2.61 mmH20 @ max RPM Air flow: 55 CFM @ max RPM Warranty: 6-year  
    I will let the numbers argue for themselves, but to say one is better than the other is not entirely objective. However, I PERSONALLY find the ML fans quieter at the same RPM, and although I keep my systems as quiet as I can, the higher max RPM of the ML fans is something I am sure that appeals to some users. To be fair there are higher RPM models of the NF-F12, the industrial 2000 and 3000 RPM models, but these come at $33 each, and are not available in a chromax version. 
     
    So to wrap this all up, if you still want/prefer the NF's, great! You are making a good purchase and will be very happy. But having personally bought three NF-F12s and one NF-A14 I will stick to my ML’s in the future. I own the 2-pack variant, Pro LED’s (in 120mm and 140mm), and the Pro RGB’s. When I consider the three variables of price, performance, and aesthetics, the ML’s are my favorite in all 3 categories. That said the NF chromax fans are a very close second, and I genuinely hope to see some new colours and possibly an RGB version in the future. I think this would get Noctua more customers. Anyways, to those interested, I can highly recommend Noctua products and specifically the NF-F12 chromax.

    Wait until summer for Ryzen 3000 chips. The move to 7nm is looking to be very significant, as AMD likely will match or beat Intel in single thread performance while also shipping 16 core consumer chips.
