    Granular got a reaction from Alexeygridnev1993 in How to install Linux instead of Windows 11   
    The momen I realized, how straightforward and powerfull the terminal can be, is one of my fondest tech-related memories.
    "I'm commanding my computer to do things and it does them!".
     
    ...And when it doesn't, it returns an error message, googling which returns a stackoverflow thread with a solution for your problem 95% of the time.

    Granular got a reaction from AluminiumTech in Apple's Craig Federighi: Mac malware state "Non Acceptable" and why iOS != Mac   
    Living in solitary confinement jail cell makes you very secure from home invaders.
    Doesn't make for a healthy life worth living though.

    If the OS tells you that a wireless link is established, it probably is. You might not be getting an IP address from the DHCP server on the WiFi router.
    You can check if you have an address and a default route by running 'ipconfig' in command prompt/powershell.

    Granular reacted to RejZoR in LineageOS 18.1 is here   
    Yeah, I don't care if you can't sideload apps on iOS. Coz frankly, I didn't care on Android either. It's just another infection vector where people just confirm everything and disregard anything just to run whatever. It's why Androids are so infested with all sorts of junk.

    Granular got a reaction from sounds in NVIDIA to officially allow GPU passthrough to Windows VM from Linux host   
    Great for those situations when you want to use an open source OS, but don't want open source graphics drivers, so you run Nvidia and also don't really want an open source OS, so you run Windows in a VM.

    Granular got a reaction from Blademaster91 in I thought phone innovation was dead.   
    I care.
    Developers wanting to run their own software on their own devices without paying a subscription fee to Apple for the privilege care.
    People unable to escape Apple's censorship on behalf of governments care. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_by_Apple#Censorship_by_country
    If Linus' rant about not being able to update AirPod firmware from non-Apple devices is any indication, he cares as well.
    Oh, yeah and Fortnite devs seem to care too. I know it's not cool to like Fortnite, but iOS software distribution is a monopoly and monpolies are bad, mmkay.

    iOS devices don't belong to the user. Apple keeps updating them because what they're updating is their device that they're using to squeeze money out of their buyers.
    Asus is (for whatever bizzare reason) updating devices that Google uses to squeeze money out of the buyers.
    The worthwhile solution to this dillemma is charging for software support and/or making the device support package open source enough that other parties can do that.
     
    If you do actually care about e-waste, like you suggested in the RTX 3060 video, why not highlight a meaningfully different phone maker by covering the Fairphone?

    Granular got a reaction from riba2233 in PC Master Race - Beating the Series X   
    I'd say that the main point for getting a PC is that you're not subject to Microsoft's monopoly on software distribution and don't have to pay a monthly subscription for features that are free on the PC.
    Microsoft is selling Xboxes at cost because they're in a position to squeeze more money out of you in the long run.

    So using Windows 10 is like using an Android phone now. You're either running 12 different kinds of spyware, or a cut down out-of-date re-package made by an anonymous hobbyist somewhere.
    You're postponing a problem, not solving it. Windows and MacOS will only ever get worse.

    Granular got a reaction from StDragon in Samsung to manufacture NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 SUPER Series GPUs next year (Updated)   
    I don't get the criticism of Nvidia over going with Samsung. Going with TSMC would have also meant supply issues since TSMC doesn't have enough capacity for the clients it already had. If anything, it's good that there's market for Samsung's advanced nodes, otherwise they might abandon them, like Global Foundries did.
    Sure, not being able to get a GPU sucks, but that was going to be the case either way.
