    So you're streaming to the laptop from another computer? In the control panel, make sure that the bottom two settings are set to "do nothing."

    itswillum reacted to gorillacowman in COVID Alert released in Canada   
    The Canadian corona-virus tracking app was released last Friday with initial support for Ontario. While the app is available nation wide it is only the notification process is only available in Ontario as of writing this post. 
    The app uses the Apple-Google model for notification. It works by having your phone send out a random code over Bluetooth which other people with the app who are close by will receive and send theirs codes back to you. So you phone will hold a list of codes you have sent and codes that you have seen. If someone get's diagnosed with COVID they will be given a one time code that allows their app to upload their generated codes to a database. Everyone's apps will pulling the new codes found in the database  and checking to see if it has seen one of the codes before. If a match is found the app will notify with information on what to do next. This is an oversimplification if you would like to learn more I would suggest watching the Computerphile video or to read Apple's white paper on the subject both linked in the sources.
    The app maintains a users privacy since the only data that is stored are randomly generated codes which are not traceable to a specific user. It also does not tell you who you where contact with but if you were in contact with someone. If you feel unsure about the security and privacy of the app the code for the app is available on GitHub linked in the sources below. 
    My thoughts
    I believe that it is still  useful to download the app even if it is not available yet in you province. Since the app would still be exchanging codes before provincial support. So if you come into contact with someone a few days before your province supports the app you would still get notified if the person get's diagnosed once the province is using the app.

    The Samsung Odyssey G9, also known as the LC49G95T, is a 49” super ultrawide monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate, a 1,000nit VESA displayHDR certified screen, and quantum dot for great colors. And it’s GSYNC compatible! It’s everything…but can the VA panel keep up without smearing the blacks??

    itswillum reacted to WaggishOhio383 in Looking to get a new phone - can't decide between 2   
    In the end it all comes down to personal preference. As an android user, I would never get an iPhone myself, but if you want a reliable phone with good performance, you can't go wrong with the SE. iOS is much more optimized than android, simply because it's locked down to only function with the apps apple makes you use. While you get great performance on much lower specs than other android phones, you don't have the flexibility to change things like your messaging app, keyboard, launcher, etc. If you're okay with making those sacrifices to get better performance, then do it.
    It really depends on whether you care more about what you can do with your phone's hardware, or software. If you really want the IP rating and wireless charging, then get the iPhone SE. If you want a phone that allows for more customization within the OS, but is lacking some hardware features that you realistically can live without (I've had a Samsung Galaxy S8 for a year and a half now and I've never used wireless charging or had any issues with taking sudden tumbles into water) then go with the OnePlus Nord.
