Huh, surprised at so many anti-smartwatch comments here. I wear a Garmin Fenix, and use it to track my runs and other workouts. It has a Spotify app in it, so I can run with my tunes and no bulky phone. I sometimes misplace my phone, and the Find Phone feature on the watch is very useful.

From Saturdays DSLR article
"A $5,000 pro DSLR will lose 1/3 of its value as soon as you open the box, and then lose $1,000 per year"
Don't let BoP see that first link, Or we'll never hear the end of it.

Math is an abstract logic system designed by flawed humans to attempt to rationalize aspects of the observable and unobservable universe.
Tik Tok teenagers would probably be better served not just randomly asking strangers, but reading up on the history of math, as the article eventually discusses.

Sounds about right to me Idonyo.
The shear size of game installs are growing so fast that I'm building a new system and I bought a 1tb m.2 SSD for the sole reason that my 500gb SSD just isn't enough. Between the software I use nearly daily, the many gb of art assets I have because of my job, 2-3 games is all I can install before I'm at less than 50gb of free space.

This Swedish girl is a product of her handlers. She is espousing what adults with a specific agenda have told her. I don't think she is bonkers, just misinformed by the people that are using her. I find it very sad that people have to use a child to push such an agenda, especially when it is not backed by any scientific facts. Yes, the earth is warming, but the silly sky is falling nonsense has no basis in fact.
No the sky isn't falling but the earth is going down the drain really fucking fast. Many suspect we've already moved beyond the tipping point and are at the start of the next extinction level event, meaning it's already too late. This isn't a drop off a cliff, but a long slide into extinction that picks up speed as it goes. Ecosystems are collapsing. Keystone species are disappearing. We're running out of fresh water, top soil, arable land. Population is exploding and everyone demands more, more, more. It's completely unsustainable - and has been for several decades now. Yeah, there's an agenda, the 'Hey I live on this planet too and it would be really nice if it didn't go to Hell in a handbasket in the next couple of decades which is exactly where it's going' agenda.

I always get worried when I see that cloud save box appear, no matter which game. You're always just one click away from fucking yourself over...
I've only fucked myself over twice. Once early into Steam doing this, when Steam lost my save (best as I could tell.) Another time when I had been offline without realizing it and ended up with two different saves, out of sync, and the wrong one got uploaded (at least 50% user error, if not 100%.)

Wish I could do that with every launcher; Ubi's I think lets you close it but keeps some process running, Origin and Blizzard I remember would kill the game, and Steam might be game dependent based on using Steamworks DRM, but since most do I haven't bothered testing, and nor have I tried for Bethesda's.
So to fix Borderlands 3 you need to get rid of Epic Game Store?
GoG's the only (other?) one that just lets me play my damned game...
Something I wish more clients had.
Also what issues with BL3? Been watching tons on streamers and none of them have had issues.

On my Andriod phone, I use Firefox for the majority of browsing, and launch Firefox Focus for web searches. I've been thinking about switching away from gmail though.

I just finished this game and it was pretty lackluster, not sure I want or need new content. The story is even shorter then the one in the first game, granted you can spend several hours doing pointless side missions but those are even duller then the story missions.
I did not even get all the different weapons b4 the game ended, not that it would matter much, the AR and shotgun are all you need.

Cheater should've been instantly kicked from the game the moment they knew he was cheating... Why let him play after that?
Put his face and real name out on the internet, hardware ban this guy, take away his game account and put out a statement that this is going to happen to every single cheater they find. Some hardware bans cannot even be fooled by spoofed hardware ids, so right now it can be done.
You guys are way too magnanimous... /s

One new map. 20 new modes. GET READY FOR BATTLEFIELD!
So boring. This game needs regular injections of new content, not this drip drab nonsense with mode overload. Most appalling is the total lack of vehicles in this game. Gone are the days of multiple transports and mini theaters of combat within a map. Instead its boring chokepoint conflict over and over.

50 million? That's crazy. I wonder how many of those actually bought any cosmetics or whatever they are selling in game though.
This still looks like yet another BR game that I'm going to skip though, I don't find that gameplay style appealing at all.
