  1. So glad I went with 32Gbs of RAM on my macbook. Currently using 27Gbs and I'm not even doing more than the usual

      Told ya, although I guess you could've just downloaded more RAM on the 16GB one.

      Ok DrBuckMacGup.


       @DrMacintoshI made sure to leave the signature.

      wtf is this xD 

  2. Couldn't get it fixed on windows so I swapped over to MacOS and used Disk Utility and it formatted it perfectly with no issues.
  3. Yeah my friend used to do something similar with CSGO skins and made over $200 off a $1.25 drop
  4. I have a USB drive that I've used in the past perfectly fine but now it says I don't have permission to view it. In diskpart I can see it has an asterisk at the front of the disk which I think means it has protection on it. I tried clearing readonly attributes and cleaning but that doesn't do anything. I've had this happen before but can't remember how I fixed it.
  5. I use CashApp for my trading and surprisingly enough with an intial investment of $100 I've made like $50 over the past couple months
  6. Just bought $50 worth of stuff on Amazon with the money I made so they aren't lying at least with paying you
  7. I haven't seen anyone on the internet but I have met people in person that defend him
  8. I actually found a decent replacement from a thrift store. It's a naval officers jacket and it is super nice and was only like $5 too
  9. I want to make sure I get a cable rated for 3440X1440 @ 100hz to run my monitor from my macbook pro. Does anyone know of one that fits this description? As well as a USB to HDMI cable. Thanks
  10. They haven't capped anything yet. Also I have VPNs and proxies I can use
  11. I have my farm of 6 phones and I am working on making a servo do the swiping on each phones. Currently I just have hotdogs attached to oscillating fans lol. I also got $6 for every referral code used to I made $36+$6 for the initial sign up bonus. They have since removed payout by paypal but you can still get giftcards from basically every major store chain. I'm going to try an Amazon one tomorrow and also try swapping the cards on localbitcoins for bitcoins as the rates are higher than paypal would be anyways.
  12. My first question is why a laptop over a mini ITX build. Second, undervolting will help, repasting, and also using it on a hard surface that won't restrict airflow.
  13. After calculating the average over an hour it's closer to $864/month but I'll have a machine with 3 phones and I'll see what they generate in a week and report back
  14. I'd love to see Apple react to a botnet app on their store. I'll check my piHole to see if it's doing anything suspicious
  15. That's why you just make a bot farm with old phones. Can't steal location data if you don't have a sim card
  16. You make close to $1094/month off of one phone that is swiping 24/7 btw. So with 10 phones that's $10,000/month or $120,000/yr. Since it pays you in points I doubt the value will stay this high but better to cash in now than be too late
  17. So after some investigating it pays you every 20 seconds roughly $0.006 and randomly amounts ranging from $0.04-$.12. The timer stops after you watched the video start to end so you need to keep scrolling in order to watch. You get $1 by signing up and up to $120 if 5 people use your referral code. It cashes out directly to Paypal or you can buy giftcards. I think I'll just hook up a small motor with a fake finger to scroll every 10 seconds on all my old phones and it should be a nice background way to make money. I have 6 phones I can use so I can cash in on the referral and make $0.03 every 20 seconds for however long the app exists. On top of my Brave browser VM farm I should now be making more than I would if I was mining ETH currently. I'm also probably only using 45 watts of power total.
  18. Remember when people were freaking out over the full body scanners at airports because they could see you naked? That’s all driven by AI now so no one can see you naked. It’s also extremely accurate. I had a receipt in my back pocket that went through the wash and was balled up and the screen highlighted exactly where it was. I didn’t even know it was there

      @James Evens back in the late 90s and early 2000s I believe it was Cannon released a camcorder that had such good IR capabilities if you put a developed piece of negative film over it you could see through most clothes. Once word got out Cannon pulled the camera because of this reason

      I think they need to add humor too them, like robotic voice overs type things, chill people out a bit....

      @wANKER that's all fine and dandy until the response is "Allahu Akbar"😅

  19. That looks like shit compared to AMDs offerings of stock coolers
  20. Still don't have any need for a new iPhone. This was with my 3 year old X

      I love the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, they risked it making the notch with FaceID but man did they nail it, the resell value is still pretty high

      Oh sorry I meant ex

  21. After searching for years to find the perfect laptop I have found it. Is it my macbook pro? No. Is it my matebook pro? No. It's both of them. I've been searching for a laptop that doesn't exist for years and never will. Using both laptops fills in all the gaps the other might have. It's a balance

      I have tried an XPS and it falls short in a few areas. I don't like windows, it's trackpad is subpar, it isn't unibody, drive options, and it's thermal issues. Honestly my Matebook X Pro is the closest laptop I have gotten to being perfect except, it runs windows, it's trackpad, and audio port has an audible hum/hiss. That's the portion my macbook fills in. It's keyboard and trackpad are god damn miracles to use in comparison to every other laptop on the market. It's screen falls short in comparison to the matebook x pro though. That thing has an 800 nit 99% AdobeRGB 3K touchscreen panel with paper thin bezels and boy do you notice.

      I understand the Windows, thing, but Linux is still an option. As for the trackpad, I disagree. Older models (like my 9570) pale in comparison to the likes of Apple who are the gold standard in terms of trackpads in my book. I'm not sure what you mean by unibody, my unit is made of two pieces of aluminum and the screen, where the only build complaint I have about it is the hinge isn't one-finger. You're right about drive options, from the factory, selection isn't great, but both the RAM and storage are slotted which is practically unheard of on premium machines like it. For thermals, the 8750H in my unit hangs around 50C during normal use, but can peak into the 90s in heavier loads. But name a powerful laptop that doesn't do that. I just love the power, build quality, and keyboard of the XPS line, especially when you consider its price vs other rivals. 


      If you disregard my biases, I think the new XPS line represents some very compelling options in the premium laptop space if a macbook isn't your jam.

    4. BuckGup


      Yeah I'm not saying the XPS isn't a good laptop, it's a pretty great one in fact. It's just didn't satisfy what I was looking for and is a bit pricey.

  22. That's not what I said. Youtube is a free service. Alphabet can do whatever they want with it. There is nothing legally that says you can't censor it. I can make a website saying how the moon landing is faked all under freedom of speech and creative commons. Now if the Chinese government came to Alphabet and said censor all these things then that's a different boundary. It's the same idea of censoring certain books in public libraries funded by taxes. There's a difference between private and publicly owned and funded websites. I agree there is a very fine line but you really shouldn't be getting your news from Twitter or Facebook as these aren't news websites.
  23. They do use RED cameras. As well as a handful of other brands like ARRI. Sometimes you'll see film cameras that they then instantly digitize as it gives it a certain look. Sometimes they'll use IMAX cameras and they are just massive
  24. While I don't agree with censoring it's a private platform they can do whatever they please
