  1. People also lived without the internet, color tv, ....., and basic medicine.

    NVidia Losses half of its value

  3. Or, they just have a notch since some people do prefer the extra screen space and aren't bothered in the slightest by the presence of a notch. Stop misconstruing the notion that everyone hates the existence of the notch just because YOU do.
  4. Interferes with wireless charging, adds cost/complexity. Becomes an issue with cases. Not seamless to flip a phone around to take a picture and then have to flip it back around again, especially keeping in mind that people often take multiple attempts. Video chat becomes a problem if you want to do something else or if you want to show the other person what you're seeing.
  5. In your opinion they're more of a hassle, that's not universal. Most people also only use a single pair of headphones with a single device, so even using an adapter doesn't actually affect them.

    Corsair now sell 'Fake Ram' to fill your RGB needs

    Not exactly. They're charging 80% of the price that the cheapest 2x4gb kit would cost. The cheapest option for Corsair RGB memory is a 2x8gb kit for $130.

    Test the Claim

    The physical hardware can't become faster, but it could get better at recognizing your fingerprint (in theory).

    TicTacToe dynamic Victory method

    Something like this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10038585/a-recursive-check-for-a-winner-in-tictactoe-using-a-two-dimensional-array

    TicTacToe dynamic Victory method

    Without looking through your code, I would suggest recursion that will start in a given square and check in the vertical and horizontal directions (1 space at a time) if the piece in that spot (if it exists) matches the origin spot. If the count at any point hits 3 (or whatever the threshold for winning is), then that person wins.

    OnePlus CEO tells the truth about 5G

    Speed isn't the only advantage of 5G no matter how much people want to believe that to be the case.
  11. It depends entirely on the course and professor. My Calc 3, linear algebra, and DIFFEQ exams were a mix of complicated and conceptual problems. Calc 2 was a mix of the above and multiple choice. Meanwhile Stat and the remaining dozen or so math classes were all heavy theory classes and my exams looked more like essays than math.
  12. Yeah....a dust particle isn't going to conduct anything across the gap between pins. This is going to be an issue caused by water damage or possibly metal shavings... If a simple dust particle was enough, then the RMA rate would be so stupidly high and there would be a class action already in play given that this issue affects Macs from the past 2+ years. 15" MBP -- 6 Core, 512gb, Pro 555x, 16gb DDR4, Retina screen, 10hr battery - $2600 ($2400 w/ 256gb) XPS 15 -- 6 core, 512gb, 1050Ti, 16gb DDR4, 4k, 7hr battery - $2100 (cheapest config w/ >1080p and > 8gb ram) Both are very much so over $2000 and both are in the same price bracket with the same target audience.

    What does Instruction[0] mean?

    Instruction[0] references the first character in the string 'Instruction' while Instruction[1:] references all characters except the first. E.g. Let instruction = 'hello' Then instruction[0] == 'h' and instruction[1:] == 'ello'
  14. Yeah....they do though. Apple is far from the only company to sell expensive ultrabooks (that are frequently recommended). And let's not ignore the fact that this "malfunction" that is going to kill the CPU because of the design issue is going to be user-induced water damage 99.9999% of the time.
