I don't know how much responsibility Youtube has in this. It's not like they're responsible for people being stupid. And unfortunately there's no law against pandering to them. If there was we'd be free of the Kardashians, "Reality" TV, etc.

Youtube's primary goal (as defined by Youtube) is retaining and increasing site views. The "up next" algorithm is painstakingly crafted to meet that end. It pushes click-bait, controversy, You wouldn't believe..., anything internet rubbernecking related.

In the real world conspiracy stories go die on a tabloid shelf somewhere. In the digital world this stuff is content gold for social media companies trying to attract attention.

How many of you actually installed Epic Games Store?


I had it for Fortnite when that was starting up, but deleted it a few months after. Deleting my EGS account took a week and was a PITA.

That article about quitting coffee is pure garbage. 2 weeks? BIG DEAL!

I quit caffeine cold turkey 10 years ago and it had a dramatic effect on my sleep habits and all around wakefulness throughout the day. Sleep better, need less sleep, don't crash throughout the day.

But.. I had to go through 4 weeks of migraines by quitting it cold turkey (I don't get migraines).

I stopped drinking caffeine about 6 months ago. I really miss the taste and ritual of it, but my sleep and energy levels have been much more stable.

Funny that your avatar pic appears to be some creature holding a cup of coffee.

Ha, yeah I suppose it does look like holding a cup. It’s from a painting that was done from the Secret of NIMH film. https://youtu.be/GMcnZ7ykJ6A?t=2m5s

That's a lot of phone for the price.
better phone, bigger screen, larger battery, more cpu, lower price mine did come with 32 gb though.
That nokia will really retail for about $89 or less is my guess.

Only two stars? Someone is hatin' on ur phone. You should write a review!

Judging by his love affair with the Epic Store those 2 stars are probably accurate.

Thanks for all the advice, gents!

Check out AMD's Freesync List. You can filter the hell out of it for what you want specifcally. Really handy tool. Shows lots of great VA monitors 30"plus for a lot cheaper than the ones you linked.

Appreciate it, but I don't have an AMD card, so Freesync doesn't do me much good?

Nvidia supports freesync now as 1badmf mentioned, some monitors better than others, so verify before you buy.

I picked up a Benq EX3501R a few months ago. It's been perfect for my needs and light gaming. I have a dual monitor setup at work and I'll probably never choose that again if an ultrawide is available as an option. Freesync has worked perfectly so far with my GTX 1080.

To test the chipset you measure consumption at the wall.

Isn't the x570 chipset rated at 15 watts, hence the need for a fan

Der8auer measured it under different loads... https://youtu.be/qk3PD-4zPN0?t=841

He even removed the fan + crappy heatsink and went full passive by installing a very basic heatsink. He doesn't understand why they went with active cooling.

Great video, thanks. The mystery deepens.

Say what you will about Ross, but when he said he'd fund his own campaign he actually did, unlike out current bloviating buffoon.

Perot was a stand-up guy, no doubt.

As to whether he'd make a great prez, who knows. Being a CEO in charge of all aspects of a business is a totally different skill set from being president where separation of powers requires compromise and deal-making.

Not to mention the tiny little detail that a successful business is operated with efficiency, while good governance is measured in it's effectiveness.

Interesting piece on the X570 boards. Techpowerup posted some benchmarks saying there was no appreciable difference between X470 and X570 running a Ryzen 3000 CPU. Which makes you wonder where all that power is going? (PCIe 4?)

My biggest gripe is that FDevs constantly take back seat, ppl just flown to the end of the galaxy to find nothing but dirt. There were no lore bread crumbs, no answers to any of the lore questions, bah, there was no participation from the devs at any levels whatsoever.

Hats off to the DW2 organizers, they did an amazing job making this journey happen.

They really need better in-game community planning.. they are trying right now somewhat but my god they suck at it.

They can't even design a satisfying reward loop outside of piloting.. you think they should try crafting community events? Honestly be happy they don't get involved more.

Let us know when Sandro has been fired, then it might be worth another look. Until then enjoy the RNG pretending to be a game.

Besides the price point I like that it uses significantly less electricity as well - we all need to be using less, and it's expensive in Ontario.

Really? It's super cheap just next door in Quebec and if I'm not mistaken, Ontario is also mostly on Hydro.

Have prices gone up that much since Hydro One's privatization decades ago?

Does privatization ever lower prices? Price map from Hydro Quebec's 2018 report.. http://news.hydroquebec.com/media/cache/ce/b1/ceb18534078ee4c66d734acf25e5129a.jpg

Google has some stuff.. http://rainydaymagazine.com/wp/2018/12/30/diy-herman-millers-aeron-chair-repair/

My wife and I have Steelcase Leap chairs, and the cylinder on mine has been a constant issue. Mostly because I fidget a lot and chairs don’t seem well designed for that. Should probably just replace it with a bean bag or something equally low tech.

I guess everyone has already moved on from 1080p right? Lol. I'm quite happy with my 1070ti still. It handles everything I throw at it and my i7 is going on 4 years old... I suppose 4K will truly cripple me but as long as I don't see what I'm missing, I don't need it.

1080p on a souped up 970. I'm happy. May build a new system in 2 years, with a new monitor. Till then, 1080p is great.

1440p is the sweet spot. The main benefit, aside the resolution increase, is that line aliasing is vastly reduced. Meaning you only need a touch of anti-aliasing, or can run with something like SMAA only. I wouldn't worry about 4k, it's still very niche for the PC market.

Apple devices are supported far longer than any Android phone. Kinda makes the price a wash.

We have $200 android phones that are 6 years old at work, and they still get updates.

When does this price wash thing start?

So you’re saying KitKat/Lollipop devices are currently getting OS updates? Burden of proof is on you my friend...

What I think you mean is that Apple devices are supported for two years at which point they slow iOS down to a crawl for all but the most recent phones. Planned obsolescence.

That was the complaint with ios 11, (so far) hasn't happened since. I'd still take a slower phone with security updates, than yet another abandoned Android product.

Last time we moved we ended up loading up a 26' truck and just parking it at a gated self-storage facility for a week until we could move in to the new place. It was a better option to pay a little extra for the truck than to load/unload twice. For what it's worth.

Edit: The greatest benefit is that allows you to schedule labor on your timeline. (We moved ourselves, but hired some guys on each end to help load/unload.)
