Basically, the A12Z is a Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC). Intel and AMD CPUs like those found in nearly all laptops and desktops available today, are both a Complex Instruction Set Computer (CISC).” Read more

THIS. 1000% this. You can occasionally score a refurbished M142 for ~$300 on eBay, and the bang for the buck will not get any better. We’re talking 256gb SSD, 8gb Ram, and a mediocre 1080p screen which will be just fine for productivity (don’t take it outdoors though). Plus the AMD 3500u absolutely smokes the Read more

Fair.  Was honestly just curious.  My girlfriend insists on all of her cars being AWD... we live in suburban Detroit...

All of these Fossil smartwatches are just so damn big. I was intrigued by the Hybrid HR in a dive watch look, but it’s 44mm. That’s a big honking watch!

There was a village in Africa so remote that they had no electricity or electronics of any kind. As an experiment the OLPC people left a pallet of the devices in the village with no guidance, training or even explanation. Within minutes the kids of the village, who had never seen so much as a light switch, had the

AMD and Microsoft have both been VERY tricky with how they frame this guy (comparing the battery life only to the 13-inch counterpart and not other 15-inch competitors). I wanted to look at it versus some 15-inch but I don’t have any U-series 15 inch products I’ve tested lately. They’d absolutely do better, but they’d Read more

from the end of the cutscene to talking with Eris the ending felt a bit rushed... we just blipped back to Sanctuary, how? Read more

As someone new to iOS (from Android), this frustrates me to no end. I have Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music and Pocketcasts installed and it chooses one of those (doesn’t like YT Music for some reason). I have this issue everywhere - when I’m at the gym and pause wireless headphones to talk to someone, get in Read more

But also, I wish there was a way to tell the OS to just not automatically play anything when connecting. I have half a dozen apps that play audio. Stop assuming you know which one I want. I’ll just start the one I want.

The inability to remember the last played audio source makes me want to open the car door and fling myself out at high speeds.

I’d trade it all for better performance when you’re in the car with no CarPlay. Ever been using a map and get a call? Only takes 3 physical clicks of the home button to get back to the map, and forget about it if you have Face ID.

HOLY SHIT THIS. I want cage the elephant to die in inexplicable ways because it defaults to “Aint No Rest for the Wicked” EVERY GOD DAMN TIME IT CONNECTS TO BLUETOOTH.

I straight up deleted my Music app in hopes that it’d stop interrupting me when I try to pause a podcast or youtube video. Instead now all I get is silence (which I guess is better than some song blaring when all you want to do is pause)

This, but for me it’s wildly inconsistent. 90% of the time Spotify will pickup where it left off, but occasionally music from iTunes will play. And for no rhyme or reason. The only hypothesis I have is sometimes Spotify will update or be closed in the background, and as soon as my car connects my phone just defaults Read more

Something about these have always felt like good 30 dollar games. They're not bad, just a bit middling and monotonous toward the middle.
