Xbox one? Last I heard you had to disable some obscure bluetooth protocol and even after doing that it wouldn't stay connected.

Do you have to install a special AUR package or something on Arch?

All you have to do is disable ERTM. Wish more things supported that though. It's useful for poor signal conditions

I've tried this method in the past but couldn't get it to work for extended periods of time, like I would need if I'm playing multiple games of Rocket League. With the external bluetooth dongle I have and ertm disabled it seems to be working ok, but I'm pretty sure this is how it was last time i tried it and the inconsistency led me to just using Windows and the wireless dongle from Microsoft to use it wirelessly. I'll keep testing it, thanks for getting me to try it again anon.

No, I know brave serves ads, I'm breddy sure adnauseum had an "agreement" with advertisers

How did we get to the point where new phones regularly cost $1,199? iPhone XS Max only costs $160 more to build than iPhone 6, but the retail price is $550 higher.

Two things
1. Pricey R&D with diminishing returns. The hardware industry has been stagnating for awhile, even moreso with Intelshit

2. Diminishing demand: Every year all the dumb 30 something millennial moms got excited for the new iPhone, it peaking with the "gigantic and huge screen" the 6 had. Now mom-tier users hardly notices when a new iPhone comes out, in fact she's probably using an iPhone 6s or 7 still

Just because it costs $5 to make something doesn't mean you should be obligated to sell it for that (speaking about non-essential luxury items, especially while there isn't any crisis). The price is decided by how much the consumers will pay and go down as more competitors exist. Also don't forget that there's more costs like R&D, advertising, and Chinese slave labor

Almost all Linux users are slaves to repositories meanwhile Windows users can download an .exe file and get the latest version, bleeding edge beta version, or an ancient version of whatever software then want if they have the .exe .

We literally have made habit of frequently changing OS's just to get software we find effective. Solutions have been offered such as distro agnostic pack managers like flatpak and snap, and tools like appimage. However they are primarily ignored in favor of ancient tools like apt-get and .deb.

In Debian/Ubuntu's case apt-get should continue to exist for people who want it and how it saves a lot of space. But developers should be encouraged to take advantage of flatpak and appimage and even tar.gz bundles to prevent software from being chained to particular distros.

I'm genuinely curious. I don't use it because I'm a Firefox chad, but I'd like to know what's supposed to be so bad about it. I've heard you guys called "pozzed", "botnet", and "tranny", but I've never once heard any of you articulate any actual specific reasons it's bad.

Yes, ublock is a better adblocker than what is included in Brave, and far more customizable and easier to add rules to.

I used to use Chrome but got tired of Google's dick in my mouth so I swapped it out for a Firefox butt plug instead. They're really done a lot of work to catch up with Chrome, and I can't think of anything I'm missing on Chrome, except for an extension that mimics IE's scrolling behavior. I have a smooth scrolling extension and it's setup to be similar but I don't know how to mimic IE.

Because the amount of promotion Brave gets on /g/ (either in the form of threads recommending it or threads asking if it's good and immediately receiving positive responses) is at least suspicious, especially considering that Brave literally pays with their crypto currency to everyone who advertises the browser in as many places as possible.
Not to mention that it attracts a lot of shitposters: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/g/search/text/brave/deleted/deleted/type/op/

The only difference is that Bluetooth headphones actually hold that charge long after you unplug them, so they only need to be plugged in for like an hour every two weeks. You have to plug in your wired headphones whenever you want to use them.

Get T-Mobile they don't throttle until 50+ gigabytes and about $65 a month. Connect to hotspot. Make sure that the TTL on packets sent to your hotspot is 65. T-Mobile looks at TTL of packets to determine if you're using a hotspot and that's easy to trick.

Why the fuck does C++ refuse to reveal the size of an array to the programmer? C++ knows it internally, it stores the fucking number somewhere - otherwise delete[] and ranged : loops wouldn't work.

What's that? "Implementation defined"? Who fucking cares. Jesus Christ. Add an implementation-defined std::arr_len() then.

Imagine creating a language that adds a length value overhead to every array and then requiring to keep your own fucking variable for the same exact purpose. "You don't pay for what you don't use" my ass.

Nah, it can just invoke the OS system call.
