The most useless piece of tech.

A little device that reminds you to replace the water filter in a refrigerator. Doesn’t sound too useless until you realize all it does is count down for 6 months, start blinking a light, then start counting down again when you reset it. I’m usually not the biggest environmentalist, but come on that is just e waste. You can just write down on a calendar when you need to replace it, or add an event/reminder on your phone or computer, or just remember when you last replaced it, or check when you last bought a filter, or multiple more other ways. Idk for some reason it just made me mad when I realized what it was.

I'd say one time use phone chargers or as they say "emergency chargers" , basically power banks with rechargeable batteries you can't recharge and you're supposed to throw away after use (or recycle, but come on who mails them back to manufacturer at their cost) 

For example https://www.amazon.com/ChargeTab-Emergency-Phone-Charger-Micro-USB/dp/B07H7R37M7/

Wtf, you can get a 10 000 MAh rechargable battery bank for that price. Those shits should be banned as a crime against earth

In real life, I act like I know less about tech than I actually do.

 

Main build: CPU: AMD Phenom ii X4 955 Black Edition @ 4,0GHz (Cooler Master 212) | GPU: MSI RX580 8Gb | RAM: 12Gb DDR3 | PSU: Chieftec CTB-500S  | Mobo: Asus M4A87TD/USB3 | Storage: Seagate 500Gb HDD

Yes, I'm aware my CPU is a huge bottleneck. No, I don't really care.

 

Laptop: Asus TUF FX505DT 60Hz 8Gb model

I'm a noob at tech, I don't know that much. Is 1866 megahertz a lot?

No, it's pretty sucky. I hope it atleast has good timings?

I have an old Nvidia NVS 300 Graphics card here and it has only one display output which looks a lot like a DVI port. It is however a DMS-59 port, which only works with adapter (DMS to dual dvi) so the card is kinda useless, because I don't have an adapter. (and the card is legit shit anyways)

That's what that port is!!! I have an old card with that and could not figure out what cable to use with it. I won't be using it anyways because I know it's not good.

I'd say their tendency to dry out ink really easily, forcing new cartirdge buys for the cost of a new printer :(
