  1. Yea so apart from sports and maybe the occasional vintage festive Halloween, Christmas, etc. movies from like the 90s (stuff Netflix and the other streaming services probably won't bother with), I don't see any programming that would make IPTV appealing to the average consumer. Heck even news channels are streaming their evening news live on YouTube rather than using IPTV exclusively for the internet side of things.
  2. Then there's people like Instagram that completely reversed things and made all videos autoplay by default. Honestly not only is autoplaying videos annoying and at times startling, but if you're on mobile... oh boy... there goes a ton of your data every time.
  3. Sports. They simply do not exist on Netflix, Amazon TV, etc. The only way to watch your Hockey, F1, Football, American Football, etc. is through traditional broadcasters. The one I'm subscribed to through my cable subscription allows users to watch past programs and games at their leisure, albeit the recordings only go back to maybe a week or so.
  4. This is from Shaw, a Canadian provider and the price doesn't seem too out of place from what you're quoting. https://www.shaw.ca/tv/plans At least, on the surface
  5. I love how the person says "this is a very modest sum for my work". Work no one asked for lol. It's like those people who clean your windshields when you're stuck at a busy intersection without you asking, and then they demand payment.
  6. So the issue I'm having has been happening for a long time. Essentially what's happening is my system would stumble where it would pause for a second or so randomly (screen freezes and sound loops rapidly) and soon returns to normal. It's rather annoying especially when trying to watch stuff on YouTube/ Netflix. The system is overclocked but it still does that at stock settings. Also, from a cold boot, it's slow as balls. The machine could just hang (but you can move the mouse, but clicking on stuff will react but nothing happens) for a few seconds on end before it snaps back to life and every
  7. When I saw the first photo I was thinking that's not bad. Then I got to the last photo... kk yea I see why they think that it's overkill.
  8. Oops I took a course on the science of brewing beer. No seriously, BISC 373 at Simon Fraser University, look it up.
  9. In no particular order Oolong Tea HK Style Milk Tea Earl Grey Tea Green Tea (sometimes pure, sometimes with a hint of lemon) A&W Root Beer (I can stand Mug and other brands of Root Beer but A&W is my favourite) Coffee (Double double or Single single, black depending on the roast) Beer (The Last Strawberry Wit is one that comes to mind) White Wine Whisky to warm me up on a cold day Yakult (like every Asian growing up)
  10. I would love to be able to do AD tasks on my phone. /s No seriously apparently it's a thing: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.bealsystems.ADUserManager&hl=en&gl=US
  11. They'll all use the same wiring schemes as far I as I know. The only difference is in the make up of the wires themselves.
  12. You'll have to go on the used market to get anywhere close to that. And even then, you might not make it. You'll be at best looking at some used Business laptops like your HP EliteBooks, or Dell Latitudes at that price range.
  13. It does sort of look like one of the heat pipes have exploded.
  14. It depends on the game and rest of your system. Overclocking your CPU is not the be all end all. If your GPU for instance isn't up to snuff, overclocking your CPU all the way to 5GHz ain't gonna do anything.
