    Yeah ryzen + quadro is what I would do.
    I would recommend buying a quadro used cause you can save a ton off the retail price.

    Ive owned the first 3 oneplus phones. I remember having to buy an invite just to be able to buy one. Pretty dumb for you to think that because im mot happy with some of their decisions that ive never owned one.
     
    And your right at the time they didnt have wireless charging.....no flagship did that i am aware of. Your basically saying that oneplus should not update their features to compete with the other flagship phones in the same price range.
     
    I loved my oneplus phones. I wouldnt buy one now though. Back when they were $300 and competing with the other flagships it was a a hell of a deal. 
     
    And are you under the impression that oneplus isnt looking to gain new customers? What company doesnt want new customers? What kind of logic is that?
     
    They are upping their prices and losing customers. The budget customers are not going to stay with oneplus if they are spending the same as the other big companies. So they need to attract new customers.
     
    Maybe niche isnt the right word. But they are not as big or well known as you make them out to be. Go into any electronics store, cell phone website, or even walk downtown in most areas and see how many people have a oneplus let alone know the company at all.
     
    Your whole argument is basically that they can up the price but not worry about gaining new casual customers.
     
    If an average buyer walks into a store how are they going to be sold on a oneoplus at $800? You think the average customer cares about customizing and flashing a phones os? No. So pitch a $800 oneplus phone that doesnt have the features as other more well known flagships at the same price point.

    What will the people that always comment "china/russia bad" on posts about this tech have to say about this?
     
    pick one
    They do it to prevent terror attacks It's for national security The government can prevent (pick any crime) by detecting it before it's commited If you have nothing to hide then why worry? It's ok if it's public

    IDprofile got a reaction from Levent in LLT Jacket Zipper Location   
    Watching the WAN show and someone asked them why the jacket has a left hand zipper.
    She is completely right on this being wrong. For a unisex jacket it needs to be a right hand zipper.
     
    Pants and shirts worn by men must all be made with the buttons and zippers on the right side with a belt feeding into the left side.
    With it always on the same side this creates what is called a gig line.

     
    Mens clothing is never made in contradiction to this rule.
    Anytime I ever see a man wearing his belt the wrong direction or wearing something with the buttons or zippers on the other side I will immediately notice.
     
    A uniform made for women is the opposite with the buttons and zippers on the left and the belt feeding into the right side.
    Only with a uniform are women meant to follow this rule. For regular female clothing there is no rule and their clothes can be made either in the male or female fashion.
     
    I have never once in my life had clothing that contradicted this rule. If I were to put on a jacket that had the zipper on the left side I would immediately notice and would think that it was made for women.

    I'd probably go with a 3440x1440p and a refresh rate of 120hz or higher. And then depending on the racing games you play you could add on a Tobii eyetracker.

    IDprofile reacted to rissdridin in can't see the wood for the trees   
    Hello fellow tech enthusiasts,
     
    Last year I built this custom PC case at my parents house for my dad to store all his maps and data for our forestry family business (and also so I have a rig to play games on when I'm at home)
    I'm a student at u university, studying to be a English and it teacher in Germany. Due to my very limited income I was never able to build a awesome computer for myself, but I had the brilliant idea to talk my parents into needing one for "their maps and picture edeting ".
    For years I had the dream to create a custom case made out of wood. I was never sure how to do it properly, and also how to find a designer that looked elegant, was 'pactical' and nobody had done before.
    The designer I choose now, I am very happy with, and for the first PC I build, I think it is awsome. 
    I wanted to recreate the look of stacked wood, the tape you would find at any home with a fireplace.
    The wax I achieved this was by making a frame out of 4 pliewood pieces on the top, bottom, and sides, and fine 2 metal fence squares in the front and back. The bottom wood piece has a big hole in it where I mounted one singular 250mm case fan.
    On the sides I prepared bolts and spacers to mount the motherboard, before I screwed the wooden cut pieces to the side  all the way around. The front metal mesh, I spray painted white, and cut sections of of cut wood and screed them to the mesh to make it look like the wood was stacked everywhere.
    The mesh can be screwed on and off with 4 screws. The back mash has no wood.
    The anterior of the case is as small as I could find parts for it.
    32cm of space in all directions has to be enough to install a motherboard, 16gb of ram, an i7 8700k with the biggest bequiet cooler I could find, 5tb of storage and a super tiny gtx1080.
    All the parts fit perfectly, no space to give.
    The hdd and ssd drives were mounted with velcro tape to the sides were there was space.
     
    Cooling in the case is amazing. The one singular case fan pulls up air into the gpu and the rest of the case is just cooled the the massive cup cooler circulating air from front to back through the "open" case design.
     
    One thing I wanted to achieve in this build, was having no buttons or lapels on the case for a cleaner look.
    So I ran 3m extension cords for everything through a sleve from the case directly into one external wooden box that could be placed any where.
    On the picture zou can see the disc drive, the power button, and connections for usb 3 and 2 as well as headphone and mic.
     
    I'm sorry that I cant provide pictures of the build, but I did not realise I would live the PC so much that I would like to share the finished results.
     
    For the wood I used a tree from our forest that i cut down and dried myself. The monitor is also from the same wood, where a friendly carpenter prepared the wood and I got a controller board from Ebay and a old laptop screen.
     
    If I have the funds to hold another one of those, I think I I will provide pictures of the process, but for now  feel free to ask me anything. 
     
    Urs, Moritz

    Paint.NET has been in my toolbox for years. I do all my image work in it and it's great. GIMP may be more powerful but god it's clumsy to use where Paint.NET is compact, straightforward and still very powerful.

    I feel bad about being fat.
     
    I SHOULD feel bad about being fat because it's unhealthy and entirely within my control. I do nothing about it and will probably continue to do nothing about it.
     
    People need to fucking grow up. If you feel that damned bad about it, start eating salad and swimming laps.

    Governments would rather secretly work with facebook instead of fight it.
    Shit as big as facebook can kind of manipulate public opinion by serving the users news articles etc. of their choice, a great propaganda tool essentially
    Plus government want your data too. Perhaps more than anyone else! 
    It's never a government's interest to protect your privacy you know...

    What bothers me is how this wasn't classified as a phishing attack and Facebook being slammed hard by law enforcement and fined billions? If ANYONE else did anything like this they'd be thrown in a jail because it's a god damn crime. But Facebook, nah, it was an "ooopsie". WHAT THE F**K ?! This shit didn't just randomly come up, someone at Facebook had an idea, someone vetted it, it went live and someone did things with harvested data. Don't tell me all of a sudden NO ONE is responsibel for this fuckup. It's absurd what corporations are doing with private user data and no one does a fucking thing when they violate this. Not users, not law enforcement, no one. This is discusting and this is the reason why Facebook just needs to f**king die already.
