  1. I really wish they had included a non-stock control of one of the Corsair AIOs with the fans from the Noctua one. The OEM Corsair fans with the H110i were pretty terrible and I can only imagine the ones on the H100i aren't any better. Noctua crushes in the case of fans so it may be that the AIO is mostly fine and the fans are most of the issue.
  2. Just want to point out that it's not free, in the same way that Android's Invert Colours and Whitewash modes aren't free. They need to have an extra shading pass to invert/greyscale the image, as well as logic to keep certain parts of the image clear. In many cases it's much cheaper than the power cost of the display itself, but it's certainly not free. That's precisely why having a dark mode in the OS is something people have been looking for. On Android 7 and 8 people were even doing this with Substratum/RRO/OMS, because you're using code injection to make the app render itself i
  3. Yeah they use a machine learning algorithm to identify you as human and just make you solve the puzzle to help train their other machine learning algorithms x'D
  4. The future of Android is Fluid Because there's no point in spending gpu and battery power to do layout and rendering on a viewport that doesn't exist. It's likely adding a widget there to occlude any elements that might get forced up there making them not render and save that little bit of power. None kf the apps I've seen affected by this have been GL apps which also lends credence.
  5. Except in an analogue environment there always is... The chances of two options being equally optimal in an analogue setting is infinitismal in the most literal of senses. A 30% chance of killing someone is mechanically Superior to a 30.00000000001% chance of killing someone, within margin of error. And why do we care about AI being accepted? Allowing human drivers behind the wheel in situations where they will kill a person but an AI would not is grossly negligent. People don't have to like or accept it. They have to deal with the fact that AI are strictly superior to them and liv
  6. I never once made the assertion that ethics isn't important to psychology... It's a cornerstone of psychology and the whole concept of conciousness. I made the claim that ethics, a field of psychology and sociology, has no place in the discussion of the correct choice for an automated car to make when there is always a mechanically optimal solution. That solution may not always line up with ethics, but that's kind of irrelevant because any other possible choive, by virtue of being a worse choice and therefore also posing risk, would also not line up with ethics. With a
  7. I'm going to reply just to this because it is indicative of the communication issue we're having. If you're going to talk about how ethics is an important part of psychology, please read a psychology textbook. Even the basics used for psychology 101. Rationalization, the term *you* used has nothing to do with rational thought or being rational. Rationalization is specifically that psychological quality of using a dissonance as a defence mechanism, that's what rationalization means. It means justifying something irrational as being rational, hence the suffix at the end w
  8. I'm not sure what you're trying to say there as the definition you quoted said the exact same thing I said, namely that it's a matter of random choice or personal whim. Random choice is choice, it is chosen by something, and as such is personal whim. But it doesn't necessarily need to be even seemingly random as it can also be a matter of personal whim. The definition you quoted in argument of my point supports it... And yeah... They're a matter of rationalization. That is exactly what I've been saying. That *is* why they're flawed. Rationalization is not the same thing as rational
  9. I find it amazing that the company behind the most stable Linux distro (Cent) is the same company bankrolling the most unstable (Fedora)
  10. What are you even talking about? Having that car is not a right... Being alive is a right. You don't have a right to have a car. But even if you did your logic is totally baseless because self driving cars are provably less risk to civilians than cars driven by people, unless they're made by Uber. By that logic you should take away everyone's drivers lisence and shut down Uber's self driving program before you even consider shutting down the other major self driving players. What are you even talking about? No it doesn't... Arbitrary is the Latin word Arbitrarius coming fro
  11. Which is what it means for them to *be* arbitrary... Defined by personal whim as opposed to a concrete and fundamental system... Everyone's ethics are different. Everyone's morals are different. And that's precisely why we shouldn't care about anyone's ethics or morals because they're typically not based on any logical reasoning, but rather on the societal conditioning we grow up as. Everyone's ethics are inherritantly flawed. We shouldn't base our future on something we know to be flawed.
  12. The solution to any ethical dillema is to not worry about ethics. Ethics are totally arbitrary and meaningless. They're nothing more than artificial constructs of our minds. Like "time", "life" or "happyness". All ethics serve to do is get in the way of the fundamentally optimal solution.
  13. Considering the quality of the 5k version why is anybody even thinking of this, much less preordering? Like I see a lot of "the 8k version is better! Everyone says the 8k version will be better" but when a company has only released a fairly mediocre product in the past they don't deserve your faith about future products.
  14. It's using the audio codec (DAC/ADC/Encoder/Decoder) in the SoC just like a lot of high end phones so the most likely probability is that they just built the sample release with it running in a lower than native sample rate. A lot of these tiny integrated ADCs have issues when recording at low sample rates, adding a lot more electrical noise then they otherwise would when they downsample. A number of my smaller USB DACs have similar issues if they're doing the upsampling.
