    Mr.Meerkat reacted to tautvydas in psu power cord somewhat loose   
    it fried because it outlived its usefulness and was under heavy load and probably overheated when it lay'd down spark show, old psu fan was not spinning for 3 years by that point so i'm not that surprised

    Mr.Meerkat reacted to GOTSpectrum in Help with school project about Crytomining   
    @pumpedNot only that but you could talk about how it has seen growth in GPU sales verses falling sales of all other PC components. Merge with that about RTG growth most likely linked with strong sales to miners. Furthermore you could speculate how AMD and Nvidia are now looking to cater to miners and the shift in the paradigm what this may bring. Massive increases in raw compute power Could be on the horizon and a new tech war... Then explain how it may all be a bubble like the dot-com bubble and how this coping lead to an economic disaster if cryptos manage to take hold. And..... Exhale.

    I'm too lazy to always type my passwords with incognito mode and I want to go back in history to look for the sites I visited especially with a project.

    The one advantage to having them on an sd card though is that can be read and backup by a computer.  If they're locked inside the device, well... rip

    Mr.Meerkat reacted to DrMacintosh in Stay on Android or Switch to iOS?   
    Hangouts is a joke compared to both iMessage and FaceTime.
    "every phone has a messaging service" Yeah that nobody uses and has no unique features 
    fair enough
    Yes it does to a point. That point being app location, wallpapers, how buttons look, etc. 
    Yes iOS does have a file system. The Files App and iCloud Drive not to mention every app can share between other apps. 
    "Do they have innovation" Ahahaha So much Apple has done to better phones is erased with that statement
    No they don't slow down their phones. If they did you would not be able to buy the iPhone SE, 6s, or 7 with the 8 and X being out.

    Mr.Meerkat reacted to mrchow19910319 in Stay on Android or Switch to iOS?   
    I think that it is hard to use one system while people around you using another one. 
    No doubt about that. 
     
    Let me list it out for you: 
    iOS:
    More stable than android. Apps are more polished and unified. and more stable.  It last longer. You get more system update with it. And the update is "up to date". Not getting 2016 update at 2017.  Less customizations. (Almost no customization at all) You basically can only use your app, unlike android you can make the phone do whatever you want.  iPhones cost much, compares to most of the android phone.  Android: 
    More customizable.  More hardware to choose from.  Cheaper.  Less stable software.  Less system update.  you get the idea... The bottom line is this OP, what kind of user are you? 
    A power user wants to let its phone do what they want it to do. Customize it, install different rom to it, change its theme, make it do wonders.  Another type of user only use their app. Like me. i only care about what kind of app I am using, and I want it to work with 0 downtime. I don't care about how it looks, I don't care about whether it has some certain feature (microSD card and lots of internal storage, swappable battery etc). I only use it to do a certain number of things.   
    If you are the 1st type then you should NOT choose iOS. It looks great, everything is more polished and united. But as soon as you go deeper, you will see that there is nothing more to dig... What you see is what you get. It got better with time, just like android. But it is still iOS. 
     
    But if you are like me, who thought fuck those 2 years OS update only, and don't want to play it like a toy and customize the shit out of it end up sacrificing 40% of battery life, you should switch to iphone. Let me tell you the battery only drains 1-2% every night without charging it. 
    *Can your android phone do that?

    but VAT is included in the price of everything* so you get everything back when you get a refund lol
    i really don't understand the point of wow £500 (plus VAT) (can anyone from the US give an explanation of why they are seperate)?

    To be fair, as VAT only has to be paid every couple of months, if their Taxes had to be paid immediately by the retailer, it would make it much easier for UK businesses to refund sales tax...

    Feelsbadman...if this happened in the UK, I would not be surprised if you reported it to ofcom, they would have fined the carrier and you got some reimbursement  
     
    To be fair, VAT (i.e. sales tax) in the UK are only paid every 3 months so I guess its easier for a business to refund the tax to you...

    Mr.Meerkat got a reaction from jeffery7466 in URGENT: Is this enough thermal paste?   
    I'd say that's a little too little, just. Anyway, I'm so used to applying TIM for X99 CPUs, I probably put too much onto my 1700 so I'm probably not the best person to be recommending how much TIM you should be putting onto your CPU

    4K 120Hz is possible even with a 1050 (assuming it has DP 1.4), it all depends on the graphical settings you set your games, and the game.
