  1. well thats not really true, video games are part of the problem. the stem of the problem is our own reward center. loads of things can be addicting, some things are made to be really rewarding and thus addicting. like drugs, music, tv, games, casino's. all things exploiting that easy reward for money. i don't think we can pinpoint it on one thing, in the end society as a whole is responsible for the situation because we all contribute to it in our own way's.
  2. yea i know, for some people it kinda makes sense, but it still is pretty gimmicky. but most people have a consistent 9 to 5 schedule. also its better to maintain temperature when away for an hour or two then to disable (for boilers atleast). they are more efficient on a constant load .
  3. normal thermostats have advanced scheduling. my parents have had one for years, program by the minute what temperature you want on what day of the year. cost 40 bucks. and like i said, niche situation. not gonna buy a 250 bucks thermostat and more on wifi cameras for that one or two times a year we forget to ask someone to water our plants or something like that. its a cool gadget, but its totally a gimmick.
  4. in what niche situation would i want to do that and how does it justify the price premium.
  5. that problem was tackled years before any smart thermostat came around. simple RF controls.
  6. remote thermostats have been around for ages, ya know remote control was a thing before wifi.
  7. i honestly don't see the appeal to this over just a normal thermostat that isn't connected to the internet.
  8. windows media player can play blueray's, atleast ripped ones.
  9. the minecraft brand is incredibly valuable, you can influence basically 90% of the kids next gen consumers directly via it.
  10. remember kids, this plan never worked and the FCC overstepped its jurisdiction and thats what its all about. totally not about the way this is done or the underlying reasoning that nobody as far as I've heard agrees with yet. /s
  11. since the software is so specialized they should also consult with the client and ask if they still have a contact with the developer of the software and ask the dev what instructionset it uses, i would still test it on the actual hardware though. just an extra layer of security and dedication that the client notices.
  12. yea, this. if it uses instruction sets that are much better on intel than probably fuck threadripper.
  13. we're not sure yet since it isn't released yet. its just around the corner, august i believe is the launch date. even if the heat output is much worse, it has much much more cores for a lower price. ryzen is the go-to platform for core's, threadripper will be too. 16 core cpu will cost 1000$ vs 16 cores i9 for 1700$. it is probably a little behind in clocks per instructions but the vast price difference should make it worth it.
  14. why do they prefer i9 over threadripper? is it better optimized for intel and single core performance?
