  1. Spotify loses anyway, they get hit by the app store 30% cut. But this seems more of a marketing tactic, most apple users can't take advantage of lossless audio, not even the $550 airpods headphones are 24 bit 96khz lossless.
  2. I've had asus products that failed so the claims of "x company sucks" seems really subjective.
  3. This keyboard seems way overpriced and that uneven key layout on the left side is just weird and annoying imo. Although i couldn't really see spending nearly $300 on a keyboard anyway, but some DIY keyboards for $200 or less are better than this one.
  4. No, unless you want to get everything wet. I recommend an electric air duster, and use something to stop fans from spinning too fast.
  5. If they hate then it baffles me why companies spend so much on the "we care about the environment look how green we are" marketing. I think at least some people can see through the nonsense enough that right to repair is finally getting attention. And new cars with LED headlights and taillights aren't any better, they do burn out and it usually involves replacing the whole headlight or taillight assembly.
  6. I think windows 10 updates have gotten better, but theres still way too many updates that come up that can crash the OS or cause dumb issues. Or windows 10 installing drivers even though I've already install the correct drivers, thats a really annoying one. But I'd rather Microsoft fix obvious problems with the OS than do things like change icons, or experiment with a version of windows 10 they don't even seem to be seriously interested in. The Surface duo is a neat device though, I like a folding phone that doesn't have the fragile plastic flexible screen, but I'm curious if this means M
  7. I've been disappointed with Intel for the reasons you mentioned, and their changing the socket so much. I don't really get the stability reason, Intel spends more on their R&D than what AMD's entire market value is, I'm sure Intel could figure out how to support 3 CPU generations on one chipset. I hope DG2 can at least match Nvidia and AMD on midrage GPU's, LTT has done a video on the price climb of GPU's, so has Gamers Nexus. And I think both Nvidia and AMD have been screwing over the consumer since the last mining boom with increasing prices but not significant jumps in performance
  8. Both of them take your data, but having a higher device cost and still giving targeted ads for example isn't worth switching in my opinion. I prefer a mid range Android phone, because of more features at a lower cost, there are plenty that get 3-4 years of updates, I use a browser with an ad blocker, and I don't keep personal stuff on my phone. I think apple is overpriced, and I won't buy their products because of the device cost, and their anti-consumer stance on repair.
  9. I'm just curious, are you an Apple user? No one knows how to repair the products because the product is locked down by software, and not even third party technicians can get parts, thats what this legislation is for, so repair services can get parts, and make parts and repair more accessible for the consumer. The bill would would make it so that it would be in a companies best interest to make parts and documentation available, if a device were more easily repairable and lasted longer without having to be replaced if a part breaks, I think the average person would rather buy the p
  10. Ok yeah sorry I misunderstood your post then, I agree companies shouldn't be promising things or making a bunch of marketing claims they can't actually bring to the consumer because of any limitations, like bios chip size. But yeah AM4 has been a bit of a mess, especially if you aren't buying the high end chipset, even with the high end chipsets, AMD didn't allow PCI-e 4.0 on X470. I recall a reason being that extra board layers are needed for PCI-e 4.0 and most boards couldn't run 4.0, but i'm not sure about that myself and I think they could've allowed users to test a beta bios as PCI-e 4.0
  11. If this isn't illegal, it should be in my opinion. I don't see why anyone would pay a subscription for a safety system, something like this should be buy it once and it works when you power it on.
  12. I like the Sony Xperia 5 III, no notch or hole punch, it has small bezels on the top of the screen, and still has a headphone jack. Or if you don't need a flagship phone and can deal with a hole punch, the Samsung A72 has a headphone jack.
  13. RTX is a nice feature, but not a main selling point or worth paying extra for in my opinion. And you can't even play an RTX game on a RTX 3080 without a performance drop unless you use DLSS, that doesn't seem like a good deal to me because that tradeoff isn't usually worth the decrease in image quality.
  14. Thats an interesting way to twist what i said about the B450 beta bios issue into something that fits your argument. The B450 beta bios issue did deserve a ton of criticism because AMD wanted to cut support after 2 CPU generations, forcing you to buy a more expensive motherboard because B550 was delayed. But X370 got 3 CPU upgrades for support, and people in this thread have put up some very reasonable points why AMD might not want to add microcode to X370. I'm looking at reasons given such as low quality VRM's, which means motherboard makers would only be able to support the 6 and 8 c
