    Bcat00 reacted to maartendc in News - E3 2020 LA Cancelled :(   
    What the hell are you talking about?
     
    This is not an "agenda" or political decision. This is a public health decision based on not spreading a communicable disease / pandemic. 10 years ago they would have done exactly the same thing.
     
    In fact, there was the SARS epidemic in 2003, and because it was less contagious than COVID-19, they fortunately were able to contain it. If it would have spread as much as COVID-19 is now, they would surely have cancelled public events.

    Bcat00 reacted to Tech_Dreamer in Students under quarantine on Wuhan mass reviewed & downvoted a homework app to try get it removed from app store.   
    You almost did it, You crazy sons of bi***

     
    TLDR:
     
    Wuhan,China has been the epicenter for the recent Virus outbreak COVID-19 & The region has been on lock-down since the terrifying outbreak , a good majority of people were put under forced quarantine, some videos from the region showing that government forces locking people inside & taking risky people out to be quarantined.Schools are suspended until further notice. With many workplaces also shut.
     
    in a nutshell  , people were enforced under quarantine to isolate & decrease the spread of the virus which meant kids were at home, forced to work & study from home. this meant a hike in online tutoring for kids. one of the apps that has been used by schools towards assigning homework & other work related comms was developed from Alibaba group called the DingTalk, it's a telecommuting application which during Chinese new year became the most downloaded app on China’s app stores & raised in popularity. so people started using it widely for all forms of communication like other SM apps. it's an enterprise collaboration app that lets you have group audio/video/text interaction with a preset contacts. can be used for both personal & professional use.
     

     
    teachers were using this app to set kids time assigned homework online so they were working at home even under quarantine. it is reported that an estimate of 50 million students and 600,000 teachers use this app throughout China.
     
    the app uses clock in & clock out features, which uses time framed access from users like employees or students logging in & logging out for sessions at given hours, being counted as work.  if allowed it uses facial recognition or fingerprint to confirm that a specific person is the one that's using it & the work is not being done by some other, it also is one of the first Chinese apps to have obtained the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard. Data are encrypted at SSL/TLS security standards. so a very secure app people trust .
     

     
    So the kids there who already pissed off with the chaos happening in the society thought about getting rid of the homework burden, Collectively the kids in the region came up with an ingenious plan & figured out if the app is downvoted & reviewed negatively in the App store in a massive collective manner , it will be put under suspension or be removed for review. thereby getting rid of the online tutoring for weeks.With viral speed, tens of thousands of schoolchildren reportedly began rating the DingTalk chat app with one-star reviews, knowing enough bad ratings would see it kicked off the App Store. The homework app's rating reportedly plummeted overnight from 4.9-stars to 1.4. but unluckily the app still held on without being removed. but the reviews got so bad developer had to to step in via social media to ask to stop what they were doing.
     
    app post begging for stars.

    ios appstore one star reviews.

     
     
     
    So what do you think about this? post your thoughts down below. i think it's somewhat brilliant co-ordination to get rid of a common problem.

    Pretty ironic that tesla is being stopped for environmental concerns when one of the selling points for their cars is that they are better for the environment. But if Musk is right that it's not a natural forest then I don't see a big problem with clearing part of it.

    Bcat00 got a reaction from Whiro in [Replacing Cooler] Arctic Accelero Twin turbo III for GTX 970   
    Okay let's not jump to buying a new cooler right away. The heatsink is fine so just rip off the 970's shroud and fan from the gpu and strip tie a new one to it. If you want to control the fan speed then get a VGA wire adapter for a regular fan to the gpu socket. It will only cost you like 10$ tops for a crappy fan and a new VGA wire.

    Bcat00 reacted to Kisai in what's the cheapest robot vacuum (for hardfloors) you guys would recommend?   
    They're mostly not worth it. Unless you wear your shoes indoors or have indoor pets, the robot vacuums pretty much are an alternative to a broom, not a vacuum cleaner. Most vacuum cleaners don't even clean that well to begin with because the users haven't much idea how to vacuum anything (the floor, the carpets, the drapes/curtains, the shelves, the furniture, etc) other than wall-to-wall carpeting.
     
    If you have long hair, or long-hair pets it will destroy a vacuum eventually if you're not cleaning the brushheads after every use too.

    Summary:
    A proposed bill in Vermont would allow 6 different emojis of 3,019 recognized in vanity plates.

    My Thoughts:
    Oh god, this is going to be another NULL, NO PLATE, NO TAG/NO TAGS, XXXXXXX, or NV situation all over again but for an entire state of vanity plate owners. This is sure to cause all sorts of weird issues with backend systems, OCR, and waste hundreds of man-hours attempting to get legacy ascii systems to recognize unicode emojis. On one hand, I fear for the developers involved, but on the other hand.... DO IT VERMONT, show these developers why you can't trust any input data at all!

    Bcat00 reacted to Velcade in Sonos 'End of Life' products to not get any new updates   
    This is pretty standard.  I have equipment that is at 'end of life'.  It gets no updates and has no replacement parts, when it dies that's it. It's gone. Lots of companies do this.  You can't expect companies to continue to support products indefinitely, that's insane.
     
    There's a lot of hate for Sonos lately...

    Bcat00 reacted to Jumballi in Chairs sale   
    I fully understand, however I bought a chair for $150 usd, broke in 3 months, bought another for $300 and it’s still with me 1 year later.
     
    I bought it from the retail store I worked at, and also there the cheaper chairs always got returned with bending on where hinge for the back was. Never did a high end chair get returned damaged.
     
    If you’re on a student budget, don’t waste your money on this, just go onto craigslist and get whatever is free. Your money is better spent on food or components or games.

    Bcat00 reacted to Ashley xD in linus is the biggest hypocrite on earth   
    In the latest WAN show he says that spending $20K on a Mac Pro makes him extremely uncomfortable, and that he's trying to make as much content as possible in a short period of time so he can return it. 
     
    now tell me this, when linus makes a 10 gamers 1 cpu machine, does that make him uncomfortable? or a 6 editors 1 pc system? is it just because apple refuses to send you a machine that you feel uncomfortable?
     
    because it seems that way to me. you work with much much much more expensive stuff all the time, but only apple's system makes you feel uncomfortable while it costs less than the 2 systems i just listed, by a long shot. 
     
    please stop being a hypocrite and treat apple computers just like any other computer you cover, thank you.
