Stainless steel is in fact much better. It can take a lot of hits and show no damage. It does make the whole thing heavier, but many prefer the solid weight of the pros. Aluminum gets chipped and dented in drop tests fairly easily.
I have the 11pro max and it feels extremely solid and well built. It’s also pretty Read more

Apple: “At Apple, we’re environmentally conscious, and always looking for ways to reduce waste. So this year we’ve elected to not bundle a power adapter with our new phones. We’re assuming you already have a drawer full of little, old white USB power cubes at home. So every new phone will only come with a cable... to Read more

It’s funny - for all the praise I read about the tech in the Apple Watch, I don’t actually know anyone who likes their Apple Watch. They mostly seem to wear them because the paid a lot of money for it and think they should, but then turn around and complain when it doesn’t respond quickly enough/at all/as expected. Read more

Not brain surgery exactly but on the subject of early metallurgy, I came across this “pump” in a Madrid museum and was astonished. It’s 1st century Roman. Without the text below it I would have guessed 19th century. Read more

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.

“Chromium steel, commonly referred to as stainless steel, is thought to be a recent manufacturing innovation, but new evidence suggests ancient Persians stumbled upon an early version of this alloy some 1,000 years ago, in what is a surprise to archaeologists” Read more

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

Try literally shouting from any street corner and someone will pay you cash for not all that much less than you paid for it, because you’re in the minority opinion there.

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...
