I go to the MacRumors forums. I expect a certain degree of retardation from it's users, and often I close the tab feeling slightly annoyed by their stupidity after I'm done browsing it in that instant.

But today, you know, I see threads like, "does the 16" MacBook Pro kick the 2019 Mac Pro's ass?" and it's like why are you comparing a portable computer to a computer that should be used solely as a professional workstation?

It's like, give me a fucking break. You can't compare the two. I personally think anyone stupid enough to shell out for a Pro Display XDR and a Mac Pro should be sterilized out of the gene pool, but I digress.

Why do Apple users only develop a cursory knowledge of computers and let Tim Apple do the rest of the thinking for them? I don't get it. I have a 16" MBP because well it has features that I desire in a laptop, but that is not to say that if a Windows powered laptop somehow gained the awesome speakers and niche software I use on the MBP that I wouldn't buy it and escape the Apple Hellfuck Community asap.

pls euthanize me.

If you think that's bad then you should know that these applefags are among the smartest of all normalniggers. To the average person a computer might as well be alien technology, and the politicians who say we should ban X, Y and Z are completely trustworthy.

>>74812528
This. If you think people comparing a laptop to a workstation is bad you haven't seen jack shit yet.

How did you on your latest interview, /g/?

Pic related paints a grim picture for a software development career. I'm myself a Computer Science major and this usually makes me reconsider things.

>the only way to achieve that is memorization
If you can only solve problems you've seen before and memorize solutions like a drooling retard, you deserve to get filtered.

The final solution is not the most important thing in these interviews. What's important is how you approach the problem and your ability to communicate your thoughts.
You'll make a better impression if you can come up with an O(n2) solution while clearly explaining your thought process and why it works, rather than just writing the super efficient O(n*log(n)) algorithm and not communicating with the interviewer.

These are hands down the worst media remotes I've ever experienced in testing.
>pitiful battery life (have to replace the batteries for the "Enhanced Remote" every 2 weeks)
>frequent disconnects
>lag within app loading
>device occasionally "forgets" remote, necessitating resync
>can die randomly with no chance of reactivating, requiring a replacement
>mic is shit + can't recognize certain words
>sometimes, face buttons will randomly stop working with only the volume + power buttons left working
>IR remotes for the Roku TV OS under TCL & Hisense are even WORSE due to lag, distance from IR sensor, and random disconnects taking several minutes for the TV to recognize the remote again
Cheap fucking Chinese tech. Roku is overpraised & overvalued. Fuck these remotes.

Am I thinking correctly:
>Built PC in 2012 from (near scratch), 600w PSU
>2018-20, new GPU (8GB RX580), Some new SSDs and HDDs
Now in 2020 I'm thinking
>New AM4 Mobo
>New AMD CPU
>CPU Fan (for sound)
>New Case
>16 BG DDR4 Ram
I'm thinking I can do this all for about $500 or less with sales/rebate and use the old Case/mobo as a home-lab environment. Am I thinking correctly or is this retarded? My CPU is my bottle neck right now and I want a gaming PC that's gonna last me another 8 years with few modifications (next thing I need is probably a new PSU and more SSDs until a new GPU for 1440p gaming.

Will post upgrade parts soon.

Any hope for my dodgy switches /g/?
Long story short I took a series of accounting courses that saw me pressing zero a lot, angrily
Now my zero key doesn't always work on a keypress.
It works, but it doesn't work 100% of the time like the other keys. I have to press it harder, basically I need to smash it to print zeroes.
I've already removed the cap to rule out debris blocking travel.
Is it fucked? Can I replace just a single switch?
