  1. Yeah this is definitely hypocritical of them. There's a bunch of stuff samsung does that don't exactly encourage sustainability. Such as making their phones difficult to service without specialized tools to the point where even just swapping the battery is a rather involved process.
  2. For the most part I agree. There are some use cases and some currencies are better than others (the ones that actually function as currencies and not investments) but most of them are trash.
  3. I have a thermal take case (Thermaltake View 31 TG) and I think it looks/feels high quality? Was rather nice to build in thanks to the amount of space it has.
  4. Indeed real currencies do fluctuate, but shit like this doesn't happen unless there's something seriously wrong with it. As for other cryptocurrencies that fluctuate a lot less and can actually be used as a currency. I agree, those are actually pretty awesome! The only issue I'd have with them is the energy used to maintain their network which also varies and can sometimes be justified.
  5. That's why it's retarded. An actual currency shouldn't be an investment. It should be used in circulation not stored in a vault to be turned into an actual currency later.
  6. Isn't 2nm so small that quantum effects start breaking the normal functioning of a transistor?
  7. I can see valuable reasons for cryptocurrencies and with stuff like ethereum where it's a smart contract you essentially have a distributed super computer which is kind of cool but the reason why I'm not onboard (aka why I'm not a multimillionaire) is that a conventional super computer is far more efficient than a distributed super computer will ever be.
  8. I've said this before and I'll say this again. I'm never buying a phone with a screen defect or a missing 3.5mm headphone jack. Ideally the battery is also removable but that I'm a little willing to compromise on that if the battery lasts for well over a day and doesn't deteriorate too much with age/use.
  9. I'd suck it up and get a fairphone or (dream version cause you're already being completely hypothetical about fairphone not improving) look into building my own phone from the same components major companies build them from with the addition of the features I want. Then since chances are there are other weirdos like me I'd have a potential product and customer base so I'd strive to build another company like fairphone that'd make a phone(s) that would have all the stuff I'd want. TLDR: If I don't like the universe and there's no way I can have what I want then I'll try to change th
  10. Yep, that's exactly what I indent to do. It's the whole "vote with your wallet" idea taken to it's logical extreme. Besides there are companies out there that are trying to make good products like the fairphone. Which just lacks an oled display but that'll change as oled becomes better/cheaper.
  11. Buy a phone from a better company. I'm never buying a phone that doesn't have a 3.5mm jack, an intact oled display, and a removable battery. It's insane that these 3 simple requirements are considered "unreasonable" these days.
  12. And this is exactly why I'm waiting until the game gets fixed before getting it.
  13. For law enforcement maybe but Apple has made it pretty clear they still want your data for their own uses (ie advertising, improving the experience, etc). Example of Apple being awful:
  14. Nah, I'm convinced it's just for PR while also letting them be the ones that collect all the data.
  15. Agreed, no society can truly be 100% capitalistic due to the countless anti-consumer problems inherent to the system. As for using laws to curb scalping, that could help but it'll also create a black market opportunity as laws often tend to do.
