Film does have some advantages over digital cameras and nobody could predict that by now phones would have cameras so powerful.

Kodak has no big market anymore because most consumers are happy with phone cameras and looking at their photos in a screen, something that seemed farfetched in the 90s.

I miss the days of early computer building. Late Windows XP era was the best era. Windows XP was just as light as it had always been, and hardware was advancing toward being capable of running the shitbag that eventually came to be known as Windows Vista.

PC building then:
>shop for parts
>huge selection
>spend next to nothing for midrange stuff
>Windows XP screams
>browse Newgrounds and AlbinoBlackSheep


PC building now:
>shop for RAM

People hated Home Edition separately from Pro, if they hated it at all. It had a lot of "media center" stuff that came with it. ESPECIALLY if you bought it off the shelf.

Most of the bloat came from PC manufacturers.

Real talk: Have I accidentally played myself into a corner?

I bought a Note Galaxy 4 about 4 years ago and it has been my phone since.Now I want to upgrade but every phone I look into that is in my budget is inferior in some way, be it screen or battery or even simple storage.

I don't wanna shell out 5 thousand bucks, I only have about 2000 to spare (BRL).

I thought about getting a LG V35 ThinQ or a LG G7 Thinq but even they seem to be pushing the price here.
>>
I've got an old Samsung Wave 525 phone that won't react to touch anymore. After falling down, the screen was slightly cracked, though it seems pretty deep in one spot. I've tried replacing the LCD and digitizer but to no avail. The phone still turns on and reacts to the physical buttons just fine, but I can't get past the home screen without a working touchscreen.
Thoughts? Am I missing some other part that might be damaged?
>>
>>74814625
>or hide the roastie cam like K20 did
Sadly, I think pop-up cams are on the way out. They take too much phone space, and don't appeal to either normies or autists who are scared of anything mechanical. Even OnePlus is ditching it fromtheir 8 Pro in favour of an IP rating.

The best we can hope for is either Xiaomi sticking with their slide format for the new Mi Mix or under display cams developing very quickly, and needing a very obvious mechanism to show they're recording (eg. the screen on top turning off while filming).
>>
Any phone that has good ROM support (signature spoofing and gcam ports), fingerprint reader, removable battery, SD slot, and is one handable? Don't even really care if it's 3 or 4 years old at this point.
>>74814642
>Have I accidentally played myself into a corner?
Yes, there is absolutely nothing that has the features of the Note 4 and S5. Closest things are LG V20 and G5 but they are risky when it comes to bootlooping and don't have a waterproof rating like the S5.

Isn't each individual pixel essentially its own tiny CRT? I'd assumed each was a minuscule vacuum chamber rather than the whole display sharing one
>>
>>74814252
thats the exact opposite of fragile lol
>>
>>74814287
they are a million miniscule electron emitters, but they are way too small and close to each other to divide them all into their own vacuum chamber, so they essentially share the same volume
they also are not supposed to have the thingy that manipulates magnetic fields to guide the electron to its pixel, so the emitter needs a straight line to the screen that has the phosphorus
putting supports everywhere would complicate that
they dealt with that by making a few subdivisions in the screen and putting a strip of glass to support the vacuum and keep the screen and the emitters separate

>>74814303
it isn't, trying to reinforce the glass just so that it doesn't collapse while still providing a good image was hard enough, making it tougher than CRT's tubes was always out of the question

so is this your opinion or as that of an actual engineer? because from the (limted) information about sed panels, i have never heard them being described as fragile which would be a pretty big concern to mention

Html, css and php.

I'm fairly new to web dev, and spent a lit of time learning the above. PHP is taking a long time for me to learn but i'm getting there. Once I have PHP down i'm going to start learning js and react.

If it wasn't for the fact that all hots I know of don't have node.js installed on their shared hosting servers I would of learned it earlier. Fuck paying £50 a month for a vps just so I can host a site built with js.
