Some how I feel like that’s next, watch samsung do that lmao 

Now imagining a stereotypical Samsung card.  It basically looks like last year's Apple Card.  It's convenient and quick when you first get it, but mysteriously starts taking forever to handle purchases months later.  Not that you'll be using it, because Samsung will have to recall the cards after they mysteriously start shattering in people's hands.

It's a piece of metal with an RFID chip, why do we care if it gets scratched exactly? It's stupid to make it out of anything other than laminated plastic just because there's no reason for it but... honestly, who cares?

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I mean... all of my other cards look like crap too... what's one more?

 

Also, so that this post isn't a complete waste of time join the LTT folding team!

 

You are a legend.

 

I'd join if I wasn't using my PC constantly when at home, and had it turned off when I wasn't using it or not home. (custom water cooling build. I know I wouldn't be able to save it even if I was present if/when the loop fails, but damned if I'm not here to watch it happen)

They should have anodized it instead of painting it.  Problem solved.

A real titanium card would be too expensive. Coating it is quite cheap in comparison.

A CC size piece of titanium would only be a couple USD retail. Get 100k made in China for cheap.

WHO KILLED OP

So much for the conspiracy theories that it's only a little bit titanium -- I would've been shocked if it was all titanium, since purity can have its own problems.
