  1. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/ektg8u/chinese_spyware_preinstalled_on_all_samsung/ A reddit user discovered that the Storage section of the Device Care software that Samsung uses in their Android distribution is made by a shady Chinese company named Qihoo 360. This company is well-known to use shady tactics and trickery to install adware and spyware on users' products. Using Wireshark, the reddit user was able to confirm that the company does indeed send data back to chinese servers, under at least two domain names: 360.cn & 360safe.com. To make matters worse
  2. No. It really fucking isn't. Because anyone who has ever, ever actually dealt with mounting monitors on stands or arms (hence actually knows what they're talking about) understands the price is a JOKE. Really, really good monitor arms (a step beyond a monitor stand) cap off at around $200 and usually at that price or above it is because they are multi-monitor arm systems. Not a single fucking monitor stand. My point here was that claiming something "isn't for" someone here is stupid. We have all kinds of people here that utilize really high end products for all sorts of d
  3. You're assuming a company like Apple pays that full MSRP for those CPU's (they don't). Regardless, Apple always chargers more per upgrade step than the actual cost increase of the part and the CPU's are no exception. What is this even supposed to mean? They "aren't for me" so we can't point out how ridiculously stupid the stand's price is? There are far better monitor stands that already exist for less than $999. It is a stupid product for anyone except those blindly following Apple. How do you even decide something like a monitor "isn't for" someone - it has uses
  4. It's stupid that Apple doesn't just use the core i9's for the lower-core count CPU options. They just want to advertise Xeon to inflate the price further for the "exclusivity" feeling. If you're not getting a 16+ core count CPU, then the (measly) 8 extra PCI-E lanes probably aren't going to be useful to you either. The other xeon "exclusives" aren't that compelling in a work environment where you wouldn't also want high core counts, plus Apple is definitely in a position to push Intel into allowing their BIOS to enable things like ECC on the i9's.
  5. Jesus fucking christ, look at the comments on that article. It's fucking pathetic the lengths people go to defend Apple. The term sheeple is real for a very evident reason.
  6. Hasn't AMD said, multiple times, that Navi is still based on GCN and is their last one that will be? Why are people saying it isn't now, I haven't seen any indication of this anywhere.
  7. And people defend them in the US, lol. It's almost like US intelligence committees have research and information they don't release to the public when deciding companies like this might be spying! Wow, shocking!!!
  8. GPU cracking can very much be done, no server hardware necessary. Hashcat is definitely the best password cracking program available right now, it definitely seems to do some magic with the hash rates it achieves. It all comes down to hash algorithm anyway. GPU resistant algorithms will actually run better on a CPU and hashcat can do it too. But yeah, websites that don't do things properly may be hashing passwords in MD5 or SHA1 for example and those can brute force passwords of like 12 characters, even more when the character space is smaller than it should be.
  9. Maybe I didn't read the article closely enough and I'm kind of tired at the moment, but your assessment of the article seems completely opposite of what their overall point was. They say the Natural color profile is accurate, not Saturated. Saturated is tuned for DCI-P3 which will only look right specifically for content tuned for it.
  10. This is really stupid and entirely missing the point. Sure Intel had a 12 core on Xeon. I said 6. Half of their server offering would have been more than easy. Either way, you're missing the obvious point here. It's not to have higher core counts, but have software that takes advantage of it. Yeah, it's not mainstream right now. I pointed that out myself already, if they WERE for sale 5 years ago, it WOULD BE mainstream by now.
  11. The real damage done here is to all the software we use. Had Intel at least had REASONABLE releases, like 6 cores around 2012, 8 cores around 2015, and 10 for 2017 to now sort of match where we ended up anyway, developers would be programming with increased thread count in mind all the more. Optimization would be nearly a decade ahead of where it is now. Intel essentially held the world back a decade in computing with their greediness. Makes my blood boil. Remember, developers target hardware that's already mainstream, they don't target future hardware.
  12. It's not about users seeing phone numbers. Companies sell personal information all the time. Like I said, Discord is FREE service, and had no monetary option until Nitro released. They have to make money through other methods. There's a reason they refuse to use end to end encryption: if they did they wouldn't have access to all your chats, voice data, shared links, files, etc if they (properly) encrypted it all. So I'm just giving everyone a reminder/warning: Be careful linking your phone number to discord. There's no telling who it gets shared with. Edit: Secondarily,
  13. Alright I'll post a different issue that is very on topic. My intent was never to argue, it just always gets to me when people disregard real issues and try to pass them off as "it's only me" or other nonsense. I apologize for my side of it. BE WARY LINKING YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO DISCORD. Personal friends of mine have had a sharp increase in spam calls after doing so for other communities they are a part of. I refuse to do it personally. @ LTT Staff - I hope you guys can look into replacing the phone number requirement with something else eventually, but I understand the
  14. This is incredibly stupid. It doesn't matter what field of science or math they focused on. It's basically a way of honoring their work. Besides, all those fields ARE related to computing. Processors are basically the culmination of all branches of physics, engineering, and math.
