    iKingRPG reacted to gal-m in Apple M1 = the rest of us are living in the stone age!?   
    I've really been impressed with the Apple M1 chip, though it seemed too good to be true at first, but after researching it extensively it looks like the claims actually do hold up.
     
    My question is, what's next? Can Apple Silicon wipe everything else out? I've recently been thinking about building a new high end gaming system, but now it just seems like Apple might speed past anything in the years to come (in reference to single thread performance at least). The whole thing is making me extremely discouraged to invest in any type of Windows machine at the moment... - Yes I DO know that Windows and Macs, don't compare directly depending on a persons specific workload, but I think you get what I'm trying to say.. it's just making x86 CPUs feel a bit old ...
     
    EDIT: I am NOT saying I want to play games on a Mac. I am just simply stating that the potential of Apple's new chips to wipe every other Intel or AMD off the face of the planet might move manufacturers like Intel or AMD to start looking at developing an ARM based chip as well and the potential that would have in a Windows machine..
     
    Anyways, what do you guys think?

    iKingRPG reacted to Schnoz in What are some of your most important/frequently used keyboard shortcuts?   
    I use Windows, so it's primarily alt-tab to switch windows, ctrl-shift-esc for Task Manager, and of course ctrl-shift-N in Chrome.

    iKingRPG reacted to XenZibe in How We Make a Video in ONE Day   
    Okay, I don't like how this video didn't have sponsored in the title. Whereas on Floatplane they do, seems like Floatplane users have that choice of avoiding no doubt because they're paying a fee for content and don't want to watch ads, whereas the youtube plebs even though I pay for YouTube red am not being informed what is an Ad on the channel or not until I've clicked it. That tells me more about the content right there, the fact that Floatplane users seem to have this allowance of skippability whereas youtube users are no doubt baited. Like, there was a decision at a higher level here to go, Put this as ponsored, this as non-sponsored until they click the video and we get that click/view.
     
    You had me for about a minute, so the retention was there and Monday.com was blasted in my face.
     

     
    You guys could do really well with this in just reviewing the Monday.com platform, if you use it like you say you use it, then do it in a normal LTT way, obviously since it's being used by you, an endorsement from you goes a long way rather than this obviously planned skit video. LTT sells content, I know what you guys do I know your workflow and I know how hard it is, instead I got a video of Riley going across the internet taking in all the news possible firing them into a doc and calling it job done, like, wow great.
     
    I'm really interested in mangers like this for in work, it's a big factor of my job to review platforms like this and see if we could be doing things better. This "different feeling" to everything else that you guys produce content doesn't sell me on it. It tells me that you are either hiding something or doing it for the dollar rather than being straight up.
     
    Which I get, you have to do. Maybe it isn't selling to me, but your audience having someone like me in it, which I feel is trying to sell to me, I mean it's a bunch of gamers, kids and enthuiests right? Who has the power in their workplace to change project management platforms, not many. If you want to keep doing this type of content, fair enough, let me know so I can skip it, else simply put I'm not a fan of being snaked like this so I will stop watching.
     
    Really, these videos just aren't my cup of tea, so I do skip over them. It seems obvious if I want to do that, I need to shell out for floatplane to do so. Maybe I'm the only one on this, but the number of times I've felt like this watching a video is only increasing, and I know you've had posts like mine on multiple videos before but it feels like either no one is listening or no one cares. You've got a ton of staff members and need to pay the bills. Somehow that's our fault and we now need to skip videos of yours we feel will be ads because you aren't telling us in the title.

    iKingRPG got a reaction from ARikozuM in Google Enables RCS on All Devices running Google Messages (US)   
    I couldn't find anyone else posted this, so here.
    RCS is the SMS replacement made by Google that allows for things such as read reciepts, see when people are typing, work over wifi/data, and higher attachment sizes, so wayy better pictures.
    Anyway google announched RCS, or "Chat" almost 2 years ago. But US carriers were stupid and only supported it on not even a handful of phones, so google took over and said "screw the carriers" and rolled it out without their help.
    If it doesnt work, there is a work around where you find a secret menu and enable RCS.
    This is huge for the US, as many people use SMS or imessage as their main messaging.
    so the picture quality is a hugee difference,

    iKingRPG reacted to trueCABLE in How to test super fast internet like 10gbps (THEORETICALLY, MIGHT NOT WORK)   
    Agree with mynameisjuan! Please do NOT feel like this.  I was running in small circles for a while trying to come up with a reasonable and accessible way for people to validate out 10G runs, in the context of installing our Cat6A cable.  The white paper also includes a low(er) cost way of generating professional quasi-Cert results that you can hand to a customer!

    Ok, and back to the Windows network stack performance vs. Linux performance.  I will revise my white paper to indicate that single TCP stream 10G validation to 9.XX Gbp/s on Windows is not going to happen.  On Linux, this is not an issue.  I took a harder look at the results above done via Power Shell.  This is the result of using multiple servers to bounce off of on the client side.  Not everyone has this capability, so my original thoughts are still correct at least in context of the white paper.  
     
    That all said, a big thanks to mynameisjuan who did point out that it is TECHNICALLY possible using Windows, but it just turns out it is not necessarily reasonable.

    iKingRPG got a reaction from Blademaster91 in What do you think Apple should do to be better and still set itself apart from competitors?   
    Here a list that could have many things added:
    They could not be focused on putting an i9 in a paper thin laptop, most people that would actually need an i9 would probably prefer a little thicker laptop vs throttling piece of junk. They could launch cheaper iPhones They could stop making pro products near impossible to repair yourself, and even for the people who are skilled at this They could stop ripping people off by putting a 720p screen in a new iPhone and acting like it is amazing and selling for the same high price They could stop ripping people off buy selling iMacs in 2019 with a 5400rpm HDD Oh and about repair, maybe don't charge $550 to replace your stupid curved 1 piece back glass that is super glued to the phone Again, focus on cooling for iMac and Mac Book! Stop adding features and acting like they were invented by Apple, yes I know other companies do this too (Samsung, Huawei, etc.) Let people do basic things with their iPhone without them having to resort to something like Jailbreaking Stop removing things like the headphone jack. Yes, other companies did it too, but they wouldn't have if you didn't do it first. There are 2 main issues with Bluetooth headphones, the audio quality and reliability, and that AirPods are lost all the time because you didn't come up with a solution for that first Stop with the proprietary connections, like lightning, we get you like money. Actually teach apple store employees how to diagnose problems, instead of being like "oh display is cracked, replace display, gpu, board, and battery. $2000" Don't try to stop companies who replace a display without your permission How are you charging more than anyone for a phone, when the labor costs are so low, we always hear about the foxconn factories you use breaking labor laws and under paying. I could go on all day, but you get the idea

    iKingRPG reacted to Donut417 in Advice for renting a tower or somewhere to put my antenna (I'll explain)   
    Id expect a decent amount of rent for a tower. Thats if they are not owned directly by the cell cariers, because I highly doubt any of the carriers would share their tower space with you. Also installing service at a location might be an issue. 
     
    Just because AT&T said no, doesnt mean Comcast will. Though, Id expect Comcast would want a pretty penny. Ive seen quotes as high as $50,000. Because you will pay for each foot of cabling used and any equpment they have to install and Labor. Optical nodes, Fiber and Amps are not cheap. The cost will be determined by what they have to install. Just because they are 800 Feet away doesnt mean they can just install 800ft of Coax. They might have to install new Fiber and a node, then install the coax. That can be a costly affair.
