Now a thermostat; next your fridge.
Isn't technology great?
Why do all SATA SSDs have cases? Why can't they cut costs and sell them bare? That's how most ram is sold. In fact the new m.2 SSDs are sold that way now. Sick and tired of them adding bullshit to PC parts that serve no function other than redundancy for the normies.
>Why do all SATA SSDs have cases?
To fit into HDD slots.

Like SATA interfaces to SSDs
Why do all SATA HDDs have cases? Why can't they cut costs and sell them bare? That's how most dvd is sold. In fact the new blue ray disks are sold that way now. Sick and tired of them adding bullshit to PC parts that serve no function other than redundancy for the normies.
I need help /g/urus! My grandfathers tablet that i recently inherited was literally made of viruses so I factory rest it. When it booted back up, it quite rudely informed me that it couldnt communicate with google servers. I reset it multiple times let it sit for days at a time, and even tried installing all of the latest versions of all google apps available. Nuthing worked!
I need your guys help
It is a trinity tablets t101 running on lollipop 5.0.1
I am hoping for someone to help me please.
It isnt rooted and I cant find a root anywhere.
If you tell me to root it please include a root file.
By the way, there isnt a single oneclickroot app that works, so please dont tell me to download one.
A fellow lurker.
>Generic chink tablet
It's probably fucked, they prob. never even tested the factory reset and it broke everything. That or one of the viruses got root access and fucked something up in the Linux kernel. But probably just garbage.
Recently, after watching Vinesauce Joel's video called Windows XP Destruction, and it made me want to emulate Windows XP on my Windows 10 computer for old time's sake.
I don't remember which version I used in the past, and I can't decide on normal, professional, or home.
What are the main differences between all 3?
I am a decent Java/Android programmer, but don't know C. I want to learn microcontroller programming. Can you recommend me a good, cheap system (raspberry pi, arduino, development and sensor set) and tutorials/project ideas?
I looked into it, they are really cheap indeed. BUt it seems there are not so many tutorials available for them? Being an AirBnB host, I was thinking about realizing some smart home projects. Don't you think the literature and community support is better for Arduino and Raspberry?
Are curved monitors a meme?
Only if they are small.
A large curved monitor emulates the same thing angled multi monitor setups do. Having a flat long large monitor makes the color differences very noticable and annoying.
If 1080p yes. Would rather get monitors with an arm that can rotate.
If 1440p or more, no.
Much more comfortable than two monitors in most cases, there are various degrees of curvature though.
Should I buy McAfee for my Mac?
What do I print?
should i get iphone SE or samsung galaxy S7 Edge?
i want durability: i broke my iphone 5 and lg g3 in 8-12 years each, battery life: i listen to music a lot, which one would carry on longer?, and snappiness: i don't play games but i don't want my phone to lag on opening a website or launching whatsapp.
What does /g/ use to instant message other people on your LAN?
I want to make everybody in my house use a messaging program so we don't have to use shit like Facebook just to send a message to each other's laptop.
What's the /g/ solution to this problem?
Does anybody recognize this keyboard layout? The ubuntu installer keyboard detection comes up with French, but none of the options correspond correctly. Ie standard French is azerty, while this keyboard isnt. I went through all different French and Spanish options but no luck.
Can a phone be hacked when its on airplane mode?
It would probably crash.
I just realised that you can change the time on your phone to the next day and it allows you to get pokecoins again from your gym. But through farming this way im pretty sure i can get a ban, which I don't want. I'm a pretty high level.
So tell me /g/ is it worth it if I don't have to pay to get shit from the store?
Hey guys, I stumbled upon this app and it's actually really good. As per the creators suggestion, I put it on a 7" tablet and stuck it in my car.
Now I have a touch screen head unit, and I only had to pay $99 for the tablet(which I already had), and $2 for the app. I thought i'd support the developers and spread the word.
I think everyone should get it. Only having to set the equalizer once per song is bloody amazing!
I forgot to add the link
Hey /g/ can you recommend a good pair of wireless headphones
I was looking at these http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/beats-by-dr-dre-beats-by-dr-dre-beats-solo-2-on-ear-headphones-900-00134-01-black-900-00134-01/10293068.aspx
Bait or not, you will get bullied in sites like this
If it's not bait, I suggest you to simply ignore /g/ and go buy whatever the fuck you want because it seems you are the much money little brain kind of tech person
An opportunity for you ausfags to get a good deal on the 1080 :^)
Can we get an IT horror story thread going?
User end or IT end, doesn't matter.
As per usual, NEETs don't bother because you have no work experience.
>Customer telling me about when he was working for a tech help line.
>Starts telling me the joke about the old lady in the power cut.
I HAD TO LISTEN TO THE WHOLE FUCKING JOKE LIKE IT WAS HIS OWN STORY.
Also everytime I tip a laptop and rice pours out.
Are there any usable VPNs that you dont need to pay for?
Also, is it safe to use your cards/banks/paypal? Can they be linked back to your address
Will I be forced to get Windows 10 if I get a Skylake processor? I heard something about Intel locking people to Win10.
In a hypothetical , /g/ - what combination of
2) VPN/(s) & or Onion Router + what config, or VPN protocol in general, what kind of VPN source sas well (vpngate.net?)
3) Addons to the browser(s) for security such as disabling canvas, hiding your font count, screen size, .. anything visible a tleast on www.browserleaks.com
4)a Would you disable ipv6 altogether including tunneling or something similar so that your outgoing ipv6 didn't show up anywhere by mistake or would oyu prefer to leave ipv6 fully functional and actually...

1. Self-compiled Firefox or TOR Browser with security patches and deleted bloatware.
2. Your own VPN-running system on encrypted drive on a good VPS in non-NATO country. TOR exit node-proxying.
3. uBlock for normieblocking, Noscript or uMatrix for advanced. Firefox about:config, user.js fixes. Browser kill switch + ramdisk for evercookies.
4. a) You may disable it if you don't need it.
b) Spoof or reflash the wifi module firmware
6) You can reflash BIOS to change some hardware IDs.
7) Run your Internet-connected programs in a virtualized container for extra security, block all other ingoing or outgoing connections in iptables.
8) Yoa re already on a watchlist.
Sounds pretty sensible, in a criminal way of course ;)
Thanks, anon. OP here, btw. And so are you!
Nah probably not.. I'm pone of those maniacs who literally emails the NSA and FBI on a regular basis. The serial killer type who like to ham gout with cops to pretend they can empathize with that father figure type.
But, as I always say:
give peace a rest.
I'll have to look into a lot of wha you posted as it was a bit over my head. just learned a bit about chimney offloading...

Alright I need some help, I have a laptop and just bought a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma because built in mic is shit. But when I plug it in all of the usbs stop working on my laptop until I restart my laptop. If anyone has this problem hlep me please.
Do you have the Razer™ software installed?
Are you using a non-Intel USB 3.0 port?
Any media people don't use anymore. VHS, CED, Laserdisc. Anything.
Tapes. Kinda slow if you load big programs, but not so bad for smaller ones like this 1 KB game:
Granted you can't put much in 1024 bytes, but that's all a stock ZX-81 had anyway. Even the VIC-20 only had 5 KB, but you can actually make pretty cool stuff with that, and the loading times are still ok.
Pic is Matra Alice (rebranded Tandy MC-10) that had 8 KB, so tapes made sense there too.
Great for making mix tapes from radio songs or various other tapes, or anything else really. I even recorded some of my favorite...

'Twas so nice to push them in and pull them out.
>And unlike CDs, they don't skip when you hit a bump in the road or whatever
I thought that's not an issue like for 10 latest years.
I have a Thinkpad 600,it shows ERROR, so i decide disassamble it.
What can i do with the mother, hdd and keyboard?
Probably was just a clock error. Set time date, reset. If error again, turn it on and off, should be good.
Also burn it
80% of the time its the CMOS battery just died
that thinkpad is old as the hills so just replace the battery on the motherboard, load into bios and set date and time and your done.
its really that simple.
and yes i'm talking about the round battery on the motherboard.
now go back to /sqt/
who /lisp/ here?
so one of the defcon ais got out but I've heard its nbd cause it only finds proof of vulnerability, not actually doing anything offensive...whats the actual deal here?
Is he Santiago 2.0?
What was the most tin foil hat moment /g/ had?
Ever regret selling you first PC /g/?
Looking back I really shouldn't have sold any of my old PCs... I should have kept them...
I had a amazing Samsung SyncMaster 997 19" monitor and I fucking gave it away because it was too big... little did I know...
Now I'm looking at shitty sites trying to reconstruct my first PC but I will never be...
I got to see a stupid mother throwing away a fully working CRT monitor and saying "It's old, we don't need it." but she keept the broken PC instead and didn't touch it for about 7 years later when I got it from her... I feel seasick everytime I think of it.
I'm trying to sell my pc for 10$. Pentium 4 single core 3ghz and GF6200, 1 gig of ram. No one wants this old shit. I had a few crt monitors but I didn't pay attention to picture quality so it was thrown away probably.
I'm about to do a clean installation of windows 7. I'm wanting to put all "essential" software on a few archival DVDS I got leftover from work so I have an ark of decent software.
Fight it out to the death for the best software to put on it:
Aside from browser, virus protection, media player, etc.
I also need something that'll allow me to edit and save .raw images as a .jpeg or whatever.
