Interested in 7nm AMD APUs for mobile. It’s too bad they weren’t able to capitalize on Intels 10nm delays for mobile sooner, as it stands something like the AMD Surface Laptop 15" is just a worse product for using their 12nm part than the Intel business 15, in about every way, Ice Lake even closed the gap with Vega Read more

Don’t bite the penis
Don’t twist the balls
Don’t squeeze the balls hard

Who said that was a thing to do, Cosmo?

My favorite part was when the Jawa in the cockpit turned around and just said “Egg” reverently.

I miss weird tech in general! Remember the Joojoo tablet? The Wikireader, which wanted to put wikipedia in your pocket right when smartphones blew up? The Chumby?

God, those were a minute ago now, huh.

Yeah, their hardware design is right up there trading blows with Apple. I just think they could have gone more ambitious on the chipset, seeing the interior volume on ifixit.

Maybe a Surface Laptop 3 “Pro” that provides the wattage expected of a 15", otherwise this sort of ends up like an expensive LG Gram, though Read more

The web browsing battery life is nothing special either, but video playback does appear to be Intels biggest battery life advantage against AMD.

When it’s a 15W, ultrabook tier chip, in a 15" body no smaller in dimension than a MBP 15 (two 35/45W chips), and posts worse battery life than most of its direct competitors, is that really something special?

The Surface team makes great hardware but they made some weird choices here. Maybe they were leaning on that Read more

“Worse, it’s kind of fuzzy. The iPhone 11's 6.1-inch LCD has a 1,792 by 828 resolution and 326 pixels per inch.”

Almost every time I bring up a 326ppi LCD iPhone’s slight blockiness online, internet denizens rush to tell me I can’t see what I’m seeing because they misunderstood what Steve Jobs said about retina on Read more

It was a very camera heavy keynote. I’d want the Pro because I’m not going for another 326ppi LCD iPhone, but don’t necessarily need so much camera. Maybe I’ll just get a battery swap on my 7 and last till 2020 as the whole line is rumored to go OLED then.

It’s spin, but not a lie. It’s definitely faster than something like an N5000, and budget laptops are the overwhelming majority of PCs.

Bit surprised that the chip didn’t change to at least the A11. A10 should be ok for several more years of iOS updates, but obviously not as impressive now as it was 3 years ago, and I have started to notice more hiccups and pauses on my iPhone 7 with the same chip, not exactly a speed demon anymore.

Does that actually circumvent the issue? I figured it was the OS kicking things out of memory, but I’ll switch right over if that’s the case.

It’s almost a platform switching issue at this point.

Though I don’t know if it’s better on others?

What phone are you on? I’m not exaggerating at all, just stating exactly what happens on my iPhone 7. Like i said, being aware this happens sometimes I’ll play something minutes before getting into the car so it stays in memory, and even then it sometimes forgets by then.

There’s two things I’ve submitted a bunch of radars for that never get resolved, that I’d gladly trade one of these point releases for, lol.

One, iOS’s inability to remember your last played audio source. Play a podcast, pause, wait sometimes as little as ten minutes and get in your car, hit play. Music starts playing Read more

“The company would collect these monthly fees, then divide up the revenue between developers based on how much time users spend playing their games, one of the people said.”

This part I’m worried about - I hope this doesn’t further push mobile into grindey time wasters. Part of why songs are getting shorter is the Read more

If this thing has one build quality flaw, it’s the trackpad rattle, reportedly the same between generations. No one seems to have tried to copy Apples solid state trackpad with a haptic motor ‘click’ yet, which eliminates all such trackpad looseness and build issues. Wish they did. It’s one really tiny thing, but it’s Read more

You keep framing it as that dichotomy but that doesn’t make it so. Of course clitoral removal (or worse practices) are far more severe. That doesn’t mean I have to like either. I don’t have to love the flu to hate cancer.
