  1. Hey all. I feel like this is an odd question but I cant figure it. My previous phones (Nexus S, Moto X 2014, Nexus 5, etc) all worked as intended in terms of notifications, but my Pixel 3a does not It was set up for notification sounds for when my ringer was on (just sound, no vibration) and if I switched to Android's vibrate mode, it vibrated instead. Easy enough, right? Vibrate in lieu of the sound. Common sense, at least in my head. Not so with my Pixel 3a. In Vibrate mode, the app will only vibrate if I set it to vibrate INDIVIDUALLY in the settings itself. Meaning
  2. Hey all I've got a fully functional 14 year old laptop. It works great as a general purpose machine ever since I threw an SSD into it Windows 7 x64... 120GB drive in NTFS... mobo has Intel GM965 chipset if that matters It has a built in SD card reader. I just grabbed the 64GB Sandisk out of a friend's DSLR and seemed to have no issue --> ~60 GB displayed, exFAT format, read and wrote from it fine Basically just wondering if the older laptop itself limits me in any way in terms of the capacity SD card I can pop in there? Just don't
  3. Hey all. Just upgraded to a Pixel 3a and I love it. However, it's missing two features that my old phone had and I'd rather not give up. 1) It had a built in gesture control for turning on and off my flashlight. I'd do like a 'karate chop' motion twice to toggle it 2) It had a built in 'ringer mode change' based on location or SSID. So when I was within 100m of the long/lat of "work", it would switch to vibrate... and when I exited outside of that zone, it would switch back to ringer. It could also do this based on "when I auto-hop onto so-and-so Wi-Fi network, do that.
  4. The issue turned out to be an odd incompatibility between my phone and the headset. When I paired that headset with 3 other people's phones, the mic portion worked perfectly fine and it was issue-free. They only ran me $9 so I bought a skullcandy pair of on-ear bluetooth headphones for $25 and use those instead. No issues there.
  5. Thanks again Enderman! I love it! (this was before I swapped out the Enter and Space to achieve white keycap uniformity)
  6. Nothing wrong with recommending Corsair -- I love their products! I saw that one too, but I don't like the Cherry MX Speed switches. Is that SE board available with other switches?
  7. For aesthetics, you're right. But my reason for white is because my eyes don't track well on black keyboards, so it's no issue at all.
  8. Holy crap that may be the winner. It checks all my boxes, and I like Ducky. I don't care about black on the bottom lol. When am I ever looking at the bottom of my keyboard?
  9. The ways my eyes work, black writing on white backgrounds is easier. It's how my eyes operate (I don't have great low-light vision) and it's also why "night mode" sites are hell to read. It's also why despite every other aspect of my rig being black (as is the norm these days), my keyboard is white. It's much easier for me to see and track the keys (when I do happen to look down) Back in the mid 2000s, I got a basic wired PS/2 keyboard. A simple full-sized white membrane keyboard for $10.99. No extra buttons like power, sleep, browser, etc. Nothing fancy --- no bells, n
  10. Thanks all for the info! I opened up Speccy and the motherboard tab does in fact say "Chipset Model: GM965" so that answers that.
  11. Heya! I have a Toshiba laptop from 2007. Still works great almost 12 years later, no jokes The only issue is the RAM -- it's running Windows 7 64-bit and frankly 2GB is now pathetic (2 tabs in Chrome + Excel + VLC, and I'm over 90% util lol). Plus I can tell it's utilizing virtual memory a ton. It came with 1 GB (two sticks x 512 MB) which I swapped to 2 GB (2 x 1GB) in 2011. The original spec sheet said: 1GB (2 x 512 MB) DDR2 PC2-5300 (5-5-5-15) Maximum RAM: 2GB Is there something hardware-side that restricts it to 2 gigs, or is that bogus and I can
  12. Hey all. I got Bluetooth headphones recently and I am having an odd issue. The audio quality for music is great (YouTube, my song collection, etc)... but when I place or receive a call, there is a deafeningly loud horn-like crackly buzzing noise the moment I hit the call button, or the moment I accept an incoming call, and it continues into the call with this noise instead of the person's voice -- and the other person hears it too on their end of the call, saying it was very loud like a constant "crackling boat horn". Things to note: - I contacted the seller, they thought it w
  13. "Lossless Audio" section of site.

  14. Hey all I'm new to the world of "better audio" in that I just got a DAC... a few hours ago! I wholeheartedly admit I don't have the best hearing, but I am wondering if anyone has tips to get the most of my audio experience? What I have: Old Audio Solution: Onboard Audio (Realtek chip on a 7 year old Gigabyte mobo, well before they started having the audio 'electrically separated' etc) New Audio Solution: FiiO E10K USB DAC Speakers: Meh, just your standard Logitech Z523 2.1 system (40 watts) Headphones: Sennheiser HD 428 Most of my music: eithe
