Laptop/upgrading soon edition.
I'll be in the US in a couple of months, and I wanted to take the opportunity to buy some parts for upgrade.
Where do you guys get your parts, physically? I'll be in NY for less than a week, can't really order them by mail.
Why are search engines illegal in America?
Reasons to use Manjaro?
Reasons to use Debian?
Is Manjaro just Ubuntu based on Arch, not Debian?
Any neckbeards on here that were around when BBS was really popular? What was it like?
I've been reading about it recently and it looks comfy as hell
Exciting as fuck. No one I knew in real life had this hobby. Tons of beautiful ANSI art, interesting discussions on whatever topics, chats and downloads. The idea that you can "talk" to several people at once without actually speaking was mindblowing.
It was such a time when you truly knew you were on top of something big that only mainstreamed several years later. The rebellious nature of the scene is not present anymore other than to some extent in boards like 4chan. Retards were then of course,...

Seems really cool. I wish I was around at that time. It seemed like whole BBS/internet dawn really brought out the best aspects of the internet. Sharing, meeting people, connecting, etc.
I made a thread about bbs on britfa.gs a while ago and a guy said it was such an inconvenience compared to how the web is. Although i can imagine the awesomeness of how niche and fringe it was
i wish you computer faggots would just go and die. fucking losers that live in their parents basements that spend all their money on un-needed shit, just to show their friends that they have a bigger e-penis. The funny thing is too, you fucking faggots know nothing about electronics at all, mostly just a bunch of teenage kids that need something to feel special about because they have no friends.
But I like the smell of cum in my room.
When did you realize 4chan is just another social network?
After 2 weeks or so. You should see my filter list ,about 70 of threads are always hidden because they are constant shilling or company advertising. gpu/headphone/mobile/cpu/brand shilling and not to mention daily cancer threads where 98% of the posts are reports from last thread. baka
Looking at the Vizio M series 55 inch.
Seems it's only 60hz vs the 65 inches 120hz(true)
If all I do is play PS4, WiiU emulators, and BD rips on it, will 120HZ make a difference?
When your shitty OS is so badly designed it has unfixable vulnerabilities: https://thehackernews.com/2016/10/code-injection-attack.html

Are there any good technology youtube channels?
Do all batteries have the same efficiency? If batteries had specs like phones, what would be the absolute best battery humans can make?
There you go /g. It's been posted. No need for any "nvidiot suicide watch" thread :^)
I've got a car which was made inbetween the time of tape decks and aux jacks so I've just got a CD player.
I currently use a bluetooth to radio device to stream music to my car stereo but its staticy and doesn't sound as good.
Are there any better options out there for me or are there any recommended bluetooth-radio stream devices?
Pic related is what I use and its crap
So, Safari is a lot snappier than Firefox, and unlike Google, Apple isn't in the business of selling ads, so they have little reason to track me without my knowledge. I'm aware that you can save browser history and bookmarks between devices with Safari, but if you disable those features, wouldn't it be reasonably safe?
Unless you built your processor on an FPGA board you're already in the botnet. That "software will save us from mass surveillance" thing is just a meme to distract us from important things.
No matter whether features are enabled or disabled, there is no reason you wouldn't be safe with Safari, but I'll let /g/ complete or contradict this statement.
Safari is a good browser overall and I use it as my main. The only feature I really wish it had was webm playback. It's not a very common format outside of imageboards but still annoying to have to download webms and play them in mpv.
when is the last time you used pic related
Why did Spotify stop using P2P technology?
Who thought this was a good idea?
Thats a joke you fucking retard. Chinks spell out the symbols phonetically with English and they use software that automatically converts it to the symbol

You're in a universe where desktops don't exist and you still play video games. What do you buy?

/g/, I'm looking for a laptop which I could use to study machine learning, specifically, Artificial Neural Networks and the TensorFlow library. For that I need a decent GPU. Would 1060 be enough for this task? Should I get a 1070? AMD is out of the question since Tensorflow only supports CUDA and it has to be a laptop.
I saw some Asus / MSI / Alienware laptops which fit my requirements. Are these the only choices?

I'm selling my chink phone Meizu Pro 5 because of the shitty rom, /g/tards help me buy a better android phone.

wat do, i've been stuck on this for almost a day now and i've done a fresh install twice now just to get the same result each time.
So is the camera on a macbook actually able to be hacked to circumvent the light from turning on while it's activated?
Tell me why I shouldn't get this phone. I don't want the new iShit, and I'm familiar with Samsplode because I've had an S4 active for the last few years but its really showing its age.
Is the normal S7 the same without the gimmicky bezel or is there legitimate hardware advantages?
Also, I moved all my shit onto a microSD. Can I just mount it into my new phone and be good to go or do I need to format it for the new device?
ask away faggots.
you gotta show off what you can buy with daddy's money
"Everything is alright with Firefox!"
This is especially annoying on my work computer. The cpu is a Core 2 Quad that's probably about 8 years old. The previous user put 12GB of RAM in there and I upgraded it with an SSD, but when I have a lot of tabs open, it has a tendency to become unbearably slow.
I'm really close to switching to Chrome for my main browser if this issue persists.
