Is 5G really good?
  • The problem is true 5G is high frequency and very low range, requiring towers everywhere. Also realistically we don't even need these speeds on mobile devices, what it should've been is a better 4G with more reliability and better performance in crouded areas.

  • Is 5G really good?

    I've heard multiple issues with 5G, like range and stuff, effectively sacrificing range and reliability for even more speed just so that companies can market it better. Do you think 5G is a downgrade compared to 4G?

    why are incels frowned/hated upon?

    Obviously I can understand why mysoginists are hated upon, As their belief is all women are trash or men are superior etc. But why are incels also generally hated upon? They are lacking in a way that makes them unable to gey in a relationship, but that shouldn't necessarily mean they are mysoginists, right?

    What am I missing here? I haven't ever had a relationship with a woman, but I don't hate all women either. I just consider myself unlucky. Does that make me an incel?

  • do you know what makes them even more money? Making you pay, and then selling your data anyway!

    You CANNOT opt out of data collection from youtube. Just pay them or they'll put an absurd amount of ads to the point it's not usable anymore.

    HBO Max is removing features from my plan without reducing my price.
  • what they do is lure you in with unsustainable prices and once they got established slap you with real price. Because for the real price you wouldn't find it worthy in the first place. But now that you enjoy it it's more likely you'll pay more than what you might initially do

  • I finally bought my laptop
  • Yesterday I forgot to turn on the switch and played on battery without knowing for 30 minutes. Went from 100-60. The game was old enough so there weren't any performance difference so didn't notice

  • I finally bought my laptop

    I was looking to buy a new laptop for some time (have even asked your help), and finally I went with an Acer Nitro 5 . I got it 2 days ago and so far, I'm fully satisfied.

    Specs:

    Intel core i7 12650H (only goes to 4.0GHz due to thermals), an 150W RTX 3070ti (which does go to full 150W, no thermal issues there), a 1Tb SSD, 1440p 165Hz display that looks super good, 57Wh battery(yeah).

    In setting up the laptop I did face some visual glitches when I installed Intel graphics drivers from Intel's official website... Had to reinstall Acer drivers to fix it (weird). Otherwise no bugs. Even installed Linux. Got 4hrs battery life that way.

    I tried running 3dMark Time spy and have added the results in the post. modern games are yet to test.

    What do you guys think? Should I check anything else? Would you like to see something else running on it?

  • Install unlock origin extreme! They now use quantum computers to break YouTube's DRM locks and allows free content!

  • and no this is not an invitation for oil addicts to rant about EVs
  • Cars itself are actually only a small part of climate change. The major part of it is form construction, planes, and electricity. We can fix electricity with sustainable energy, fixing planes is a lot harder as of now. Fixing construction seems impossible for now.

    We'll run out of time before we we hit zero. We are already too fast to break before the cliff. All we can hope for is a soft landing, and we need everything for that. Even nuclear energy (go 100% on nuclear!)

    Hi, I've recently put some posts asking what laptop should I buy. I got some quality advice, so thanks for that guys. I've finally bought (well, paid, it's not reached yet) the acer Nitro 5.

    https://www.amazon.in/Acer-i7-12650H-Graphics-AN515-58-Keyboard/dp/B0C5R13NGB

    I know the battery is shit, planning to check the thunderbolt port to use an external power bank. But other than that the specs seem awesome, the reviews also say the same. There's just no other deal that gives a display like this with the specs. I hope the build quality is good, I've bought an external extended warranty, so the risk is minimised (I hope).

    What do you guys think? This is my first gaming laptop. Is there anything I should do first on receiving? Any ideas how to extend the provided battery's life? Is Win10/11 better for this hardware? Can I use it for like the next 4 years?

  • I do use linux on my current PC, but does linux improve battery life more than windows, is it possible to permanently disable the Nvidia GPU in linux to improve battery life?

  • Which of this is a good laptop deal?

    I'm looking to buy a laptop, and found some deals, among which the most I liked is this Dell G15 at. ~1200$.

    https://www.amazon.in/dp/B0BHYQJLN9/?psc=0

    Is this a good deal? I like how it looks, and the reviews say only battery is bad. But I hear Dell is not good unless it's XPS. Should I buy it?

    Other good deals I found, which one is the best?

    Lenovo at ~1300.. (Good package with good battery) https://www.amazon.in/dp/B09NP4W2PC/?psc=1

    HELP - Acer nitro V at crazy price
  • I am stuck on a laptop. So waiting for ASUS is better? They do seem to have a premium price tho. I can't find any "killer deals" like this for ASUS. I don't play games on battery, but I do watch movies and youtube on battery a lot. Also I want it to be portable (i.e: not stuck to a power of all the time)

  • HELP - Acer nitro 5 crazy deal
  • So, go for it? Is looking for ASUS for their 90Wh battery and better build worth it? (Looks like they have a premium price tho)

  • HELP - Acer nitro 5 crazy deal

    I found an acer nitro 5 with 1440p display and an RTX 3070ti for a crazy price around ~1000$. It sounds too good to be true and I suspect aggressive corner cutting. Is it an actual crazy good deal? Should I buy it? Should I leave it and keep looking for ASUS deals?

    So, just go for it? Is ASUS's 90Wh battery not worth the premium, or is this too good of a deal to skip?

    Can we start a group in wire?

    I use wire (wire. com) for daily chatting. I like it but I couldn't find any good communities in wire. In session, or simpleX, there are privacy (and other) groups in which anyone can participate.. Can we start a privacy group in wire so we folks can also hang around?

    Is Skiff trustworthy?

    I've been using skiff. com for sometime, as they claim to be a fully privacy preserving app suite like GApps or proton. One thing I like is they provide 10GB storage even for free accounts, where proton eventhough much bigger provides only 500MB.

    But that got me wondering... Are they trustworthy as proton? Is there a chanve they end up being a honeypot? Does data actually gets encrypted before sending to the servers in a trustworthy way?

    Is wire messenger private in 2023?

    Basically title. Looks like wire is now heavily being targeted towards corporates. In a corporate environment you don't need too much privacy, so I was wondering...

    Is wire messenger private in 2023?

    Where does it stands in the current stack among WhatsApp, signal, simplex etc..?

    Exactly how much data is being collected?

    Hello, I am looking to buy a new laptop, and I noticed that the GIGABYTE G5 with rtx 3060 is currently at available at a very good price for me at ~900$. I cannot find a similar specced device for that price anywhere. Is it good enough to buy, or should I wait for another better deal?

    Also is amazon safe for this?

    Wanna buy a gaming laptop 2

    I had posted a post regarding wanting to buy a gaming laptop, but it turned out to a discussion about budget and such I didn't get much much info from it..

    Forget about budget and other stuff and all. If you HAVE to buy a laptop and gaming IS a requirement, what would you look? which brands are good or bad?
