  1. Show me more practical use cases that shows this quote-on-quote new technology has that gives it a massive advantage where jumping ecosystems is worth it.
  2. Don't think that's his issue since he's able to reset the BIOS without a problem.
  3. I mean, I suppose you can force the software to do anything, but the monitor is a 1080p monitor. https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.QB2AA.001
  4. Kirk could overact his way out of anything. We saw Solo's acting chops in "We're fine, we're all fine here now ...thank you...How are you?"
  5. You say this worked before? This monitor literally doesn't have enough pixels to do a 1440p resolution.
  6. It does seem like a rather daft setup, but I could see it working I guess. Guess they're trying to pitch it for notebooks I suppose if you're watercooling with your own customizations, but it's really just an ugly collection of parts that maybe would work as an external setup? I dunno. Looks sketchy to me, but I'm not a watercooling enthusiast... Maybe I could see it as an external setup with long tubes going inside a computer as well that would lessen the chance of leakage causing an issue? Is there a market for this? I assume so if someone made it.
  7. "RISC architecture's gonna change everything." --Hackers Yeah...dev board, like many others but this one's for an even more niche crowd. Where there's a need the market will fill it with a product if possible...then the product will fail or not. Tinkering can be an expensive hobby, but you can bet SOMEONE will buy it.
  8. Had a PSU blow one of the large caps clean off the PCB inside the PSU (think that was on my 386 or 486), but mainboard was fine. I agree with the other statements though, no way for us to know. You would need to test.
  9. Right, that's what I think. However, I noticed that both my carrier and the phone manufacturer in the cases of Google Pixel phones and OnePlus phones don't seem to have that insane gap between Google/OEM release vs. carrier. Having timely security updates is very much appreciated. OS updates as well, but security updates definitely. To @Stylized_Violence's response, yes, that's the way I feel. I admit that since I'm not rocking a portable audiophile set with my mobile phone and rarely require the jack for utilitarian uses much any more, I'm relatively fine with losing the jack.
  10. I was more specifically referring to the increased frequency which phones like Google-branded or OnePlus received updates, notably security updates, with an interval as little as a month. By comparison my old LG phone (when it was new) got update like...one every half year, if it was lucky? I'll check out the Sony phone. I'm kind of leaning towards the OnePlus 8T if I'm stuck with no expansion card slot, but I haven't looked at Sony's offerings.
