  1. Ahh yeah makes total sense that he'd have two phones simply just because of who he is. Thank you for your answer! I agree, android smartwatches is a pretty terrible landscape. I remember seeing the moto 360 and really liking it, but never got it, instead got the Gear S3, which being honest was a pile of crap. The Fossil Q is nice but is just so limited and everything seems to need to be refreshed before you use it. Heartrate: refresh before use, notifications: refresh and maybe some will come through, Weather: refresh for up to date. Apple just seem to have nailed i
  2. So I've noticed that Linus and a lot of other Youtubers seem to use the Apple Watch as their main smartwatch. I had the original Apple Watch back when I had my iPhone 6S, and absolutely loved it. I got a Samsung Galaxy S8 after that, and loved the phone and Android experience. I now have a Samsung Note 10+, in my opinion the best looking phone of its generation, and I love it and don't want to change. I pair it with the Fossil Q (WearOS) smartwatch, and whilst I like it enough to use it, I don't love it as I did the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch is definitely the biggest
  3. I agree - but damn I have so much on this install that I wouldn't remember what is even on there, as well as the fact that I do a lot of Flight Simulation on Prepar3d, and the amount of add-ons I have installed on my secondary drives (but linked through to the P3D install on my main windows drive) is unreal. Not feeling having to re-link all of that back up for the rest of time. But I totally agree with your comment and thank you for the advice. Besides I think my install of Windows is fairly uncluttered. I tend to uninstall everything except for what I know I need, which gives me a nice
  4. System's 90% built (with the intel processor) and awaiting the 3090 to be put into it, and then I'll immediately be putting my old drives in, so I'm past getting an AMD processor. Ahh okay - I'll check that out! thank you!
  5. Hey all, So I think I'm the only person in the world switching from AMD to intel over the next few months. Going from a 2700X to a 10900K, and a 2070 Super to a 3090. I'll be using the same boot drive, and thus the same Windows install with all of my drives just plugged into the new motherboard. Do I need to uninstall any AMD software (chipset drivers, sound drivers for the old motherboard etc), before making the swap to the new system, or should it just ignore the AMD/B450 stuff it doesn't need and look for the intel/Z490 it does need? Cheers,
  6. Scrapyard Wars - Coronavirus Edition One or two employees (Bankers) hold the keys to the LMG warehouse inventory. They decide what and how much to sell things from the inventory for. Up to 4 individuals or teams have to do a dash with a budget to buy the best parts (or most balanced) in the building. Budget should be restrictive so that the best parts can't be used. Bonus points for exotic cooling, modded cases, basically the weirder and more creative the better. But you can only use the resources INSIDE the LMG warehouse, and no going outside for any reason.
  7. I believe they developed for Series X and PS5 this year too, but plan on holding all of their PC versions on Origin back to the PS4/Xbox One X versions indefinitely. If there's one thing EA love, it's screwing their customers every year.
  8. If you want soft, don't go for the Secretlab Chairs. I 100% recommend them though. They're great and have done wonders for my back, neck and posture, but they're rock hard. Sometimes soft isn't what you need. From March to June this year I was getting all sorts of numbness with my old IKEA chair that I thought was too hard. I bought a Secretlab Titan, and it actually turns out the IKEA chair was just giving me bad pressure points. The Secretlab is hard but very comfortable, it's an odd sensation. You sit in it and say 'wow this is hard', but then lean back and you almost feel 'at one'
  9. If I were to plug in an old USB 2.0 A Male to A Female extension lead into a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) port on my motherboard, does the cable have the ability to downgrade the data transfer rate or shouldn't it matter? i.e. Do i need to buy a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Extension? Cheers, Rhys
  10. It looks okay to me, as long as you don't cable tie them down or anything. I wouldn't bend them too much more though. If the bends were too tight, it would either: A) be fairly hard to bend any more and settle on a radius B) Noticeably start to kink and bulge at the corner point (which you don't want) Referring to 'How much can you interfere with them': They should be able to handle a some light to moderate movement and bending, just don't wrench them and try and bend them for half an hour straight, you may put weaknesses in the plastic barbs that could weaken fu
  11. What is your most and least favourite PC component brand and why? Most Favorite: Reason: Least Favorite: Reason: I'll start with my opinions! Most Favorite: Corsair Reason: I love their design language of everything they do. Classy enough but a little 'gamery' where it needs to be. Good quality products too, never had a bad thing from them. Least Favorite: MSi Reason: Pretty much the opposite of Corsair. Their red dragon aesthetic made me cringe, a lot of their products are 'gamer' to the extreme, and the one MSi item I ever had faile
  12. Hmm I used to have quite a bit of Apple gear, not really a fan boy, I'll have anything if I like it. Phone: iPhone 6S Watch: Apple Watch 2 Audio - headphones, earphones etc: Apple wired Earpods (came with the phone) Laptop (Optional): MacBook Pro for Music production and an Asus Windows laptop for college Tablet (Optional): iPad Air Now I have: Phone: Samsung Note 10+ 5G Watch: Fossil Q (Google WearOS) Audio - headphones, earphones etc: Apple Airpods Laptop (Optional): Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet (Optional): M
  13. Hey all, So I have my second whole new PC in progress (This one is technically my first but I now have none of the original components in it through years of upgrades, you know how it is). It's strange because I've never had a whole other spare PC to work on and truly put my dedication toward, so this work in progress is turning out to be the best thing I've ever done. Normally I'm rushing to get it back on because I don't have a PC temporarily. My current (outgoing) PC is as follows: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Motherboard 32GB Corsair
  14. I guess but I was angling more at PC components and feature overviews - then bringing them into build guides etc. Or comparisons between all the Z490 /X570 motherboards, stuff like that. Build off - best Ryzen build v best Intel build. I dunno, something a bit more fun and intuitive regarding good old fashion system building,
  15. So recently I've been going through the LTT video history on YouTube and just enjoying the old unboxing/build guide videos all over again from the Ivy Lake/Haswell era. I'd absolutely love to see a stripped back, dedicated PC component unboxing and walkthrough channel for any newcomers to the PC game. They're the videos that made me confident enough to build my own PC way back then, and I feel this generation are missing out, because most/all channels gloss over the features and installation of different parts and just palm it off, saying 'but you knew that anyway' - some peop
