    Nexus 9 or....

    OK thanks guys, nexus it is. And yes, I still don't have lollipop on my N7 (or G3), so I'm aware that the speed of updates isn't necessarily what it's cracked up to be. I'll be honest, the Ipad really tempts me but the $140 price difference is a consideration and I've never actually used an apple device for long. From what I have seen, I agree that they're still the leaders in the tablet realm, it's just a slightly expensive sidestep that I can't quite justify - like how I'd murder old ladies for an InWin S frame but I'm not paying $750 for one.

    Nexus 9 or....

    I'm looking for a new tablet, currently rocking a 2012 nexus 7, looking for something a little bigger in the 9+ inch class. Will be used for reading ebooks primarily, with hearthstone and other mobile games also quite common. Browsing not so much, I tend to use my PCs for that. I was going to just go for a nexus 9 by default, but thought I should ask if I'm missing any good options. Wish the shield tablet had a 9-10" version, since I have nvidia GPUs. Hit me up with ideas! I'm part of the google ecosystem but you're welcome to try selling me on an ipad.

    Experiences with non-techies

    Thanks for the tip. I'm not sure I trust windows with that, but I'll give it a try. I know. I don't believe anything in my original statement contradicts that?

    Secret chat FTW.

    Xbox one release delayed in a couple of countries.

    The free game will be "Get screwed by Microsoft", oh no, wait, they already played that.

    Recommended MX Brown keyboards

    Don't you hate on my orange! The USB terminations are orange also, so at least it balances. :lol:

    Hyperloop plans made open source

    It's also potentially great for Australia, it could make the trip up the east coast a snip and really cut down on the isolation that WA sometimes seems to suffer from. Plus solar panels would be a no brainer across the desert.

    I wish Steam had a way to ...

    Since I assumed this thread was a wishlist for Steam, I'm going to post as if that is the case. :D I wish Steam had a way to... return all the cool features they keep removing, why did /me have to die?
  10. I installed a Hyper 212 in a system with two noctuas, wondered why it was so noisy* then saw that I'd pointed them both inwards so the fans were blowing directly into each other. *6 months after having done it......

    What's your most hated youtube ad?

    It's not youtube, or even one add in particular, but the fact that an ad plays every time I do ANYTHING on twitch. Oh, you want to change the resolution? Maybe it's because you wanted to see the same ad in 720p. Pop out the video you say? Must not have seen the ad properly! *The one with the old guy having his hair shampooed is the worst.

    Biggest Pet Peeve for gaming PC's

    Anyone who bought a "gaming" pc at a big box retail store and then attempts to justify to me why it's better than the build list I very carefully put together for them.
  13. Do your cards have differing BIOS versions or (particularly) amounts of VRAM? If so, you may need to enable coolbits. On my SLI 680M laptop in Nvidia Control Panel on the left under "3D Settings" it has "Set SLI and PhysX Configuration", click that, check the box for "Maximise 3D performance" and you should be good to go. If your cards differ let me know. ;)

    1.6 Petabyte tablet?

    At least, that's what it seems I need! :huh: Brought to you by the fine folks at: I mean, I haven't looked up the specifics on excess data charges for my account, but really, how bad can it be? :rolleyes:

    How about an engine thread?

    Indeed, I read about it in street machine years ago, before I realised I didn't care enough about cars to spend $100/month buying magazines. As for my nomination of favourite engine, the one powering this is light, absurdly power productive and most importantly, mine. :D 2007 GSX-R 750
