  1. The point of statistics and surveys is to generalize and extrapolate. No need to be sarcastic.
  2. Like I said. 2000 is a small number, but I wouldn't be dismissive of the results. It's a sentiment I've shared with them because I hate throwing out a good phone because it's three years old. I especially considered getting the new iPhone SE for my mother because she is not tech savvy like you said. It's smart to want to appeal to many, not just the technically able. Besides, it would be another thing I just don't have to worry about.
  3. SellCell surveyed 2000 (I know that's a small sample, so take this with a grain of salt) US based Android users and about a 3rd of them say they're considering switching to iphone 12. Reasons cited were long term support and privacy mainly, then features. Quotes My thoughts Linus was talking about how android phone makers need to figure out long term support during the last WAN show and it looks like if they don't they could start loosing a lot of customers over time. Hopefully something like this gets their attention. If a company could commit to even match App
  4. Thanks! that's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. I can see how data retention can get mixed up with overall lifespan. You're right that it doesn't matter. No little heat sink is going to take active use temps to ambient and I don't leave my SSD in the oven when I'm not using it. I was thinking from people's forum posts that you want your SSD in the 80-90 C range and I was like, "no way! Why would they put heat sinks on them from the factory?" My favorite part is that those people recommending NEVER using a heat sink are still wrong, and if I understood the reading correctly, the opp
  5. Thanks. I get that it just does a better job dissipating heat than open air. Another reason why people recommending never using a heat sink gave me pause. The idea seemed prolific enough to ask more about it here to see what more experienced people think and more importantly could link me to.
  6. I recently got a new M.2 NVMe SSD and went looking for a heat sink for it because it gets a lot hotter than my old SATA M.2. After installing the heat sink I read on some forums (this one included) that, while the controller likes to be cool, the NAND chips shouldn't be cooled because they wear out faster when cool. This didn't make sense to me as you can get SSDs from the manufacturers with heat sinks on them, an external SSD enclosure I bought came with a thermal pad to dissipate heat to the case and the WD SSD Dashboard has a little temperature status indicator on the GUI that only shows gr
