    Tom_nerd reacted to Levent in oneplus 9 pro vs samsung S21   
    Samsung tends to include lots of apps and features I never use and some of those preinstalled apps are not even removable.

    I hate samsung with a passion when it comes to phones due to how bloated their software is. I personally would chose OP9.

    Tom_nerd reacted to SavageNeo in tell me what 600w psu is best on a budget   
    for what specs?
     
    what country?
     
    usually pure power 11 600w and cx 650w are more budget options and decent.
     
    but really depends on the specs

    At 2:29, the aircraft shown is N694PB, which is a TBM 700 (https://flightaware.com/resources/registration/N694PB). I know it doesn't matter 😂.
     
    One thing that might be a bit more important though is that I'm pretty sure the laptop RTX 3080 uses the GA104 die. Nvidia should have called in an RTX 3070 Ti mobile or something like that imo.
     
    Also, at 8:41, the graph is labeled as 4K, but I think the actual performance is from 1080p.
     
    Overall though, I'm actually kind of impressed with these GPUs, the naming just doesn't make sense.

    Normally i'm not all about calling out stupid titles or thumbnails, but what even is this thumbnail? At least put a laptop in there or something, jeez.

    Nvidia's new RTX 3080 mobile GPU is the fastest you can get in a laptop, but Nvidia's marketing team hasn't made it easy for consumers to tell how fast each laptop will actually be.

    Since you have a GPU now the 1600 will perform better than the 2400g.

    generally the G series is only used if you dont have a GPU as they offer intergrated graphics. so I would recommend the 1600

    Tom_nerd reacted to MikuKawaii in iPhone 12 mini display is so terrible compared to previous Apple products.   
    I noticed the iPhone 12 mini display looks off the moment I had it last year. So I got an express replacement and to my surprise there's no difference. I went Walmart and at maximum brightness can't notice too much difference between all iPhone 12 models. I contacted Apple multiple times and "the only suggestion we have for you is to wait software update" I was told this from November last year until this very moment. Okay so I bought a colorimeter to measure the white. Remember the perfect white should be R:G:B=50:50:50.
    (Yes I bought the colorimeter because I'm mad, mad at Apple)
    So here's my perfect iPhone XS display, an OLED at minimum brightness.

    And here's terrible 12 mini one

    Here's iPad Pro 2018, an IPS

    I also have measurements at maximum brightness in the attachments too, if you wondering what's the maximum brightness of those devices.
    edit:they can't see it so here we goes

    12 mini maximum brightness

    Xs maximum brightness

    iPad Pro maximum brightness
    Stop false claim I'm nitpicking at minimum brightness which nobody uses. 1. I don't believe I'm the only one in the world that uses minimum brightness in the dark in bed 2. it's simply false to claim I can only see the difference at minimum brightness I never said that. It's a constant green cast across all brightness range.
    So I moved the pictures in the middle.
    See how both Xs/ iPad (OLED/IPS) have almost perfect white while the 12 mini's green just stretched out too much? ANNNNND, I don't believe it's a single 12 mini
    Here's two 12 mini, the middle one is Xs, picture taken on the iPad

     
    I have contacted Apple many times from last year to this year. I got an an express replacement (one of the minis in above picture)  under Apple Care, took 2 stupid months, thousands of calls wasted countless hours explain the same thing again and again. to get Apple release the hold on my card after they receive the original phone, but that's another story.) (Oh and the stupid iPhone they gave me is locked but what I bought is unlocked, all Apple said is it's up to my carrier to unlock it, which, my carrier never lock any phone and they only sell unlocked phones. Spent 2 hours every damn day talking to Apple, carrier for 2 stupid  weeks and I had to live with it, that's another another damn story)
     
    Just forget whatever happened, this is what I got every time when I tried to get my display fixed.

     
    No work schedule as a trillion dollar company , need another year of work to fix it probably.
     
    Again, it's just not the quality I expect from Apple. I wish Linus or any influencer would even just mention it. This issue already got 6k replies on MacRumors forums, they write nothing about it, but I'm still glad they let the post alive.  I member says that his 12 Pro Max is much better than my mini. I think there's a lot can be discussed in a video. If Linus decides to do a video and can't find a 12 mini that terrible, I can mail my mini to him) So weird that no one besides some customers talked about it.
    I made a complaint on Apple support forums too https://discussions.apple.com/thread/252302131
    Here's the link to the 6k replies post on Macrumors    http:// https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/yellow-screen-tint-display-seem-warm-check-here-first.2262691/

    Tom_nerd reacted to Mling in Do you know what happens to plastic?   
    i heard they used to get sent to china to be turned into some other product. But a few years ago china stopped taking the worlds trash so a lot of recyclable plastic ended up in the land fill. Only glass and metals are properly recyclable and good for the environment. We've been using glass and metal for thousands of years.

    When i was a kid in the 90s McDonalds used to have seperate bins for recycling. They got caught out throwing everything into the same skip bin behind their restaurants.

    Tom_nerd reacted to WereCatf in Do you know what happens to plastic?   
    In what country and, in certain countries, what area of the country? Recycling is NOT handled the same in every country around the world and e.g. different states may handle it differently. You should also specify what kind of plastic we are talking about, since even that can be separated into multiple categories.

    Aren't the 1650 out of production? Anyways I think a RX 5500xt should be a alternative although I think that also may be out of stock

    just whenever it asks "would you like to send optional data to Samsung?" just always say no. Then none of your data will be sent to Samsung

    Tom_nerd reacted to FakeKGB in Heard Samsung collects a ton of data...   
    1. Open the phone up
    2. Break the WiFi/Bluetooth/modem beyond repair
    3. Close up the phone
    4. Enjoy your phone that is tracking free... but with the downside of acting like a phone without a SIM card.

    Tom_nerd reacted to JouanDeag in I think I know why my computer turned it self off at random   
    So, my computer used to turn itself off at random when I was using it.
    Replaced the cooler to a NH-D15 chromax.black and it still had temps in the 90s.
    Turns out that the motherboard had starting giving the CPU wayy to much voltage for the clockspeed it was running at. I set it at a constant voltage and temps were in the 60s and it stopped turning off.
    This was on a 6700k
