Cool story bro... So you have your TV with HDMI 2.1 just sitting there and your RTX 3080 connected to it now? 99.9% of the world doesn’t own anything that can handle the video the video spec you are setting as “the bar”

And even stuff that was written down was written on materials vulnerable to time and the elements. So much has been lost.

Yes, and this article talks about a manuscript that helped them make this discovery. I'm sad at the tons of manuscripts and knowledge that has been disappeared.

Oooh, I hope they make the walkie talkie feature work 50% of the time. (I believe this would increase its effectiveness by 50%.)

Also, I wonder if I’ll be able to make watch calls using Siri. Because right now... checking on that... that feature is unavailable. Check back later.

I can agree. I’ve had two Toshiba laptops. One had keys fall off like no other, and eventually the keyboard, for some reason, just stopped working altogether. They replaced the whole laptop under warranty. I had that one for six months, it overheated like I used it on top of a woodstove, even though it was a flat, Read more

This is a pretty common thing when a third party online distributor runs out of stock on something, rather than take down the listing and incur additional listing fees if they get more stock in later on, they just jack up the price to some astronomical number.

Fuck me the people on r/conspiracy are as dumb as a bag of hammers and as useless as nipples on a breastplate. It would be funny to read if so many people weren’t dumb enough to believe this shit.

I use Authy for my 2FA accounts. They have a Chrome extension and I have the app on all my phones and tablets synced up. I do worry about the ones that only want to text me instead of using an authenticator though.

So what’s the general consensus on having a “backup” phone? I get nervous as an increasing amount of my life is 2FA-enabled. Yeah my keys are recoverable but how fucked am I going to be if my primary phone just dies...

If the windows 10 built in control center wasn’t such an incredibly dumbed down useless collection of “functions”, apparently meant for people that need fingers and toes to count, one wouldn’t need to have the old control panel. Why not fix that first and integrate ALL of the control panel features and assets in a Read more

It has always mystified me that people complain endlessly about the Settings app GUI but not about how Start search doesn’t take you directly to the places you want to go. Read more

Meh, what they should have done was make the search feature take you directly to the appropriate place in control panel instead of their awkwardly divided and incomplete substitute.

There are still hundreds of functions that you can only access from Control Panel, as they never bothered to bring them over to Settings.app or half implemented them and never finished it. Read more
