  1. Perfect, thank you! That was the information I was looking for. I‘m cleaning the inside anyway, so it would‘ve been an additional thing I‘d have done if it would‘ve made sense. I‘ll stick to the cleaning then.
  2. Hi everyone, I have a 13" MacBook Pro from 2018, so a laptop that is already running quite hot from the factory. It's coming up on three years in a few months and I've been pondering about performing some basic maintenance, such as cleaning the insides of the device to get rid of any dust that may have built up during that time. While I have it open, I would consider reapplying thermal paste to the CPU to hopefully improve the temperature situation a bit further. This is where I've been wondering: At what point would you recommend reapplying thermal paste to a notebook CPU? More to
  3. I'm surprised that a site like reddit doesn't research its (potential) employees any better. The results are skewed given the reporting going on right now, but I had no trouble finding articles about the person in question from as early as 2018. Given reddit's relevance on the internet right now, you'd think they'd at least type in the applicants name into Google or whereever before hiring them. Reddit offers a forum for basically any topic since users can create (and moderate) them themselves. And since traditional forums are more or less dead in an age where content becoming m
  4. It goes without saying that you shouldn't be posting things you might not want to be associated with in the first place, but I think it's a perfectly reasonable request to want to be able to prevent random users from easily getting a detailed feed of one's activities.
  5. It's cool that you were able to find a solution that works for you, but I wouldn't want to deal with the hassle of making every application look the way I want. Plus, I think in many instances the result would be less than ideal.
  6. I find that it's pretty much impossible to stay in a dark theme when using a device anyway, since not all applications, web pages, etc. are going to be in sync. So even if you have a page that supports it, as soon as you go to Google or whereever, you're still going to get the bright background. So might as well reduce the brightness of your display to a level you're comfortable with and stick with the default light themes everywhere. That way I also barely ever use any display at full brightness, saving me a little battery as well.
  7. I don't understand people's obsession with dark mode settings, I find light themes with traditional dark text to be way more comfortable to read. And when it's late at night, I just reduce the brightness of the display.
  8. Yeah, that's it. Finding a seller that has something in stock is one thing, but with prices like these it's no wonder they're still in stock. Wasn't the 3080 supposed to be somewhere in the 700-800€ realm? I remember briefly thinking about buying one when I first read about the MSRP, but I guess that's not happening anytime soon.
  9. I'm not always in the mood for it, but I like it. I've never really understood why this is (apparently) so controversial, the many wildly different variations of pizza are exactly what makes it interesting. I still regret not ordering the Nutella pizza I saw at a restaurant while on holiday a couple of years ago. Might've been terrible, but it sounded memorable for sure.
  10. I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm just questioning whether it was a wise decision.
  11. I think the only thing they did wrong was the fact that they ever even decided to release the game for seven (?) year old hardware. It was bound to be an extreme challenge, and I don't understand anyone who thought for a second that their advertising would resort to promoting a technically inferior version of the game. Granted though, preventing reviewers from showing footage of it is not only shady but outright misleading. It's an understandable desire to reach as many consumers as possible, but I'm not sure whether they've done themselves any favors here. Immediate finances aside
  12. I was considering an upgrade from my iPhone X this year, but I'm having a hard time justifying that to myself. Outside of the squared edges, this is the fourth phone in a row that looks basically identical and doesn't offer any compelling new features. They didn't even manage (or were willing) to reduce the size of the notch. From the front this could literally be the iPhone X. I get that 120hz would've been another hit on the battery, but at the very least it would've offered a more substantial reason to purchase the new phones. As it is what is even the reason to choose the Pro l
  13. I'm surprised they didn't address the new iPhones in this event. It was rumored that they wouldn't I believe, but it makes me wonder how much of a delay this year's iPhone release is going to have. Oh well, I can't say I was terribly interested in the new Apple Watch and iPad, but iOS 14 arriving tomorrow is a nice surprise, i didn't expect it that quickly after the event.
  14. Well, consoles aren't portable, for one. With smartphones you also tend to have a lot more variety in the types of applications that you might want to use while consoles will probably never run anything that isn't gaming or streaming (i.e. entertainment) related. You could also make a strong case for the fact that owning a smartphone is pretty much mandatory in our modern world (given the reliance on communication and digitalization of even public services). So imo there's a reasonable argument to be made about smartphones requiring some sort of regulation, i.e. by making side-loading a mandat
  15. I'm not familiar with how console game releases work and how much of a cut Microsoft or Sony take from developers (and whether or not it differs when the games are sold online versus off the shelf at a retailer), so I can't comment on it. If the situation is similar, I might feel the same way about video game consoles, but smartphones are very different to consoles in many ways, so I think there are lots of things to take into consideration for a comparsion like that.
