  1. Yeah, if you're resting your tower on it I'd probably put that over an Alex drawer unit.
  2. I really don't think you're going to see any difference between the three. If you're worried about noise, you should just have a case with proper sound deadening and the drives really wouldn't matter at all.
  3. You could look for a hard finish, like a plastic mouse pad. Those would be fine. Some people actually prefer that feeling.
  4. As a model, yes, not of all of the inventory the company produces. It's not so much about transparency as it is about consumers not understanding how business works.
  5. Right. Of evga.com stock. Not of every card they produce.
  6. I'm pretty sure only a couple of retailers said they were selling one per person. It's also possible he got them all from different retailers. The title really makes no sense in relation to the picture. On top of that, who cares? Certainly not the companies. A sale is a sale. I mean, he's selling them. It's not exactly doxing when he put the info out there himself.
  7. Having something your hand rests on like that, you're going to stain it in no time. I really wouldn't.
  8. CPU is a bad choice. The 11400 is a better choice and is significantly cheaper. Go for the 1660 Super. It's better, and cheaper. Honestly I'd consider getting a prebuilt. You can get a significantly better system for the same price.
  9. TIL: Most wasabi isn't wasabi at all, but rather, horseradish.

      real wasabi is definitely way different than horseradish, if you ever have the chance you should definitely try it.

      Horseradish is great! Never had wasabi though, did try wasabi flavored peanuts but they just tasted like a cannonball exploded in my mouth.

      Hahaha, yeah I have wasabi peas. Probably similar. Can really help clear out the nose!

      Yeah, it's hard to find though. Well in most of the places here, since none of them are particularly high end. That sad small town life.

      Yeah it's not for everyone but I absolutely love it.

  10. Nope. Cards go through different lanes quite often. Those could have been for retail lanes that were moved to LTT, or they could have been cards reserved for giveaways and other such events, and filtered over to LTT. I'd also like to note that a simple notification doesn't entitle you to anything, so they really have no requirement to give you the chance to buy a card at all.
  11. Depends what your local market will bare. Check your local classifieds and price accordingly. I'd sell the video card separately. You'll make far more money that way. If you're selling it with, let me know He's not buying anything.
  12. Yeah, I was impressed! Even the packaging they come in is pretty nice. Plus the rubber cable ties with each cable is a nice touch too. I was considering buying one of their power banks, and after seeing this, I'll definitely pick one up.
  13. I wonder if this will be the year I get an iPhone ūü§Ē

      The only thing reeeeally holding me back right now is that I hate having apps shit all over my home screen, and currently they haven't remedied that.

      I'm guessing you mean the fact that you cannot remove apps from the home screen without uninstalling them?

       

      While this is "true", there are plenty of real world workarounds.

       

      For example, you can leave the first "page" of the home screen completely empty if you want. I do this so I can see my background image without things in the way. All apps start on page 2. They also introduced folders some time ago, so you can hide apps that are rarely used (and with the new launcher ("App library") you could literally hide all your apps in a folder if you really wanted to.

       

      The one thing still missing is the inability to put apps at the bottom of the screen (or in any other order other than starting from top left to the right, one line at a time).

      Since they're supposedly adding a 120hz screen this year, they're slowly chipping away at what I consider requirements for my device. I also appreciate their ever-so-slightly wider displays.

      What use-case do you have for a 120hz screen? Do you play a lot of mobile games? Granted I've never used a phone with a high refresh-rate screen but I don't feel like I'm missing anything on a personal level.

      Just now, dizmo said:

      Plus I don't really use apps so I won't have to buy a massive library if I switch.

      One of the only annoyances is if I ever want to go back; I haven't looked into if they still make it a royal pain in the ass.

      Depends on exactly what you're worried about here. There exist apps that can assist in "migrating" from iOS back to Android - Google Drive can apparently do this. You probably won't be able to pull all the app specific data, but you said you don't really use a lot of apps, so again it depends on which exact data you want to bring from the iPhone to Android.

      Until there's an app drawer, none of the work arounds really appeal to me. There shouldn't need to be one. There should just be an app drawer.

       

      It's just a much smoother experience. I don't play games on my phone, but it makes almost every interaction with it a more enjoyable experience. I'll never go back.

       

      It's not so much data, it's the iMessage system and how it doesn't always disassociate the number properly, so you don't receive text messages as you should.

      Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what an "App drawer" is, but isn't that literally what the App Library is on iOS 14?

       

      According to a rudimentary search of "App Drawer", it's a section of the phone, separate from the home screen, that houses all your apps. That describes the App Library on iOS (perhaps there are other features you need that are not covered by this basic definition, which may or may not be accurate).

      That's fair enough - I don't notice not having it of course. Perhaps that will change when Apple releases an iPhone with a high refresh rate screen.

      That's certainly a potential problem, but as long as you switch off Facetime and iMessage before doing the migration, you should be totally fine.
