  1. Let's see what kind of luck LTT'ers had today.
  2. Moral of the story: you can't trust the system! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYL5H46QnQ
  3. Same thing on my end. "extremely limited stock" would be an under statement. They probably didn't actually have any stock beyond review samples.
  4. Any reason I can't just unplug or remove it? Why is this a thing.
  5. So I've been using the Windows 10 family features to limit screen time for my 11 year old son. He has discovered that certain games (Geometry Dash) can be played after his time runs out. Normally when time runs out, he is booted to the login screen, but using ALT+TAB he can still access games that are running. Somehow he can even play Geometry Dash in full screen mode! Thanks Microsoft... What is a better option for screen time management? Open to suggestions. Thanks!
  6. I'm waiting for stock to order the Index, and in the meantime I'm wondering if my PC is ok? i7 4790k and GTX 1070. It meets the recommended specs, but what do you guys think? What is the best value GPU upgrade right now? I don't care about RTX.
  7. You need to spend some time learning about the company! There are lots of good interview prep videos on Youtube - check them out.
  8. I totally agree. Get an old used card for now if you must. Give it a few months and see what happens.
  9. Pascal cards are getting very old. I would wait, personally.
  10. Your setup will do OK. A lot of people think you have to be pinned at 144 fps to fully enjoy your display. Not true. You'll adjust settings to get a satisfying balance of quality and speed. Your next upgrade should probably be CPU
  11. I have no issue with luxury products. But the reason Apple profits are soaring while sales are diminished is because their markup on the iPhone X is massive. Yes, it's a good product and worth of a high price, but currently the price is astoundingly high, and people are still going for it. Smart business move (in terms of turning a bigger profit), but it only makes me dislike Apple.
  12. lol this is not surprising. iPhone X is a RIP OFF!
  13. This is great news! This way the market will provide it better and cheaper. Awesome.
  14. I think the whole point of his video was to call foul on PCper's practices. Are you suggesting there is more context that AdoredTV missed, and that PCper did not do anything wrong?
