Can we ever trust chinkshit tech? Should we ban them altogether?

I really like your optimism. Nobody knows what the future brings, but we can only hope that the EU gets control over the situation better then they currently do. Germany already has the DsGVo, an "altered version of the GDPR".
>I'm sure they can come up with a different business model
Nobody knows, but that data theft essentially is their entire business model and I couldn't think of anything else currently that would allow them to come up for their costs and isn't stealing people's data. And offering YouTube, Facebook, etc. for free.
>Again, it's not about informing people that you stole their data.
Well, yes, but in my opinion people should be a bit more educated about what's happening to their data and how much of their data is actively being collected and processed every day. A standard Android ROM is the perfect example for that issue. And I doubt the standard citizen knows about this problem.
> Germany already has the DsGVo, an "altered version of the GDPR".
From what I can see it's the german name of the GDPR?

>Nobody knows, but that data theft essentially is their entire business model
In the past, some retail stores had the genius idea that people entering them were automatically obliged to buy some of their shit. Once people decide this is bullshit, this concept is not coming back.

The EU decided to essentially give people copyright over their private data. It's not peacefully getting undone that easily. I simply expect more nations to pass similar laws.

>Well, yes, but in my opinion people should be a bit more educated about what's happening to their data and how much of their data is actively being collected and processed every day.
The general idea would be nice to communicate, but people actually really understanding and verifying what actually happens is a long shot. We're dealing with the most complex technologies invented to date, and normal people have trouble with understanding the main parts of dishwashers already.

Besides the desired effect of letting people rest quite easy is largely achieved with just passing laws until shit is back under control.
>From what I can see it's the german name of the GDPR?
Oh, did I say DSGVO? Yeah, that's the german name for the EU Law. What I rather ment was the BDSG, that is the germany-only law.
>I simply expect more nations to pass similar laws.
As soon as politicans notice that the whole "Data & Privacy train" is profitable for them, they will start picking up on that, too.
>Besides the desired effect of letting people rest quite easy is largely achieved with just passing laws until shit is back under control.
Educating people about this topic is not as high-priority as stopping the companies from collecting data, sure. But in this day and age our education should really incluide topics like privacy on the internet and the worth of information.
The fact you beleived them in the first place is hilarious
I just want cheap phones, why must chinkoids pursue mass surveillance, literally its just a device for meme sharing.

I wish they had decided to either forego the date window or moved it more to the right to replace the 3 indice completely.
This kind of date window is always half-assed. You either commit to it or you don't have one
Yes it does, feels like the watch was designed in steps that do not look back at was is already done, therefore the subdials feel like an afterthought and put in straight on top with ms paint
This does something to me, I can't lay the finger on it, unfortunately
Dude doesn't know how to wear a watch.

Because its a shit case, designed by a cuck. Even the xl variant has shit aircoolersupport for a 220€ case. The idea of having so much room in the back is awesome and i would love to built a system in one of the xl's, if it had like one cm more room in the front.

You're right, the F12 and the A14 aren't impressive at all. They're good fans with a higher price tag. I do have one NF-A14 and I regret buying it. The fan is good, probably one of the best 140mm fans out there, but it's way too expensive for what it offers.

Regarding your pic, seems to be a situation where the Industrial fans aren't preferable. IMO for typical builds they have a single use case: put them if there's something blocking your airflow. This is where their high static pressure will be useful.
On any other situation, I believe there are better options available.
On the 120mm side, IMO the NF-A12x25 is the single fan that deserves all the Noctua hype. I bought a few of them and they're fantastic.

I switched from 10 to 8.1(first time using it as a main OS) and it's miles better.
Windows was always shit. Fuck your fake nostalgia.
8.1 was decent once you installed Startisback or classic shell.
Had strange issues with a lot of programs though that never got fixed.

>Only Raspberry Pi 4 can output at 4K, so it’s important to remember this when deciding on which Raspberry Pi to choose.

>Raspberry Pi has been a perfect choice for a home media centre ever since it was released in 2012, due to it being inexpensive and supported by an active community. Now that 4K content is fast becoming the new standard for digital media, the demand for devices that support 4K streaming is growing, and fortunately, Raspberry Pi 4 can handle this with ease! There are three versions of Raspberry Pi 4, differentiated by the amount of RAM they have: 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB. So, which one should you go for? In our tests, all versions worked just fine, so go with the one you can afford.

Is this true? Can a 1GB rpi4 seriously play a 4K movie from HDD seamlessly? Should I get the higher RAM models if I'm going to use it for torrenting?

Do you even into codecs? Try playing back x265 4k 10bit on a 1GB RPi.

I worked with a X230 for nearly 3 years, it was alright. I just used all windows maximized and used workspaces a lot. Using a small font I was able to squeeze a Sublime with the sidebar and a 90-char terminal side by side.
Can't remember the res, but back when I was stuck with an older Thinkpad I made a habit of making the taskbar autohide and putting it on the left so it took up less space in the first place. Still do it now since it's just way more convenient
For gaming and coding, install Linux and enter this command:
>xrandr --output <display name> --scale 1.405x1.405
For productivity applications, install macOS, Homebrew, and displayplacer, then run this command:
>displayplacer "id:<display id> res:1920x1080 scaling:on"
Boom, upscaled blurry 1080p, you'll get used to it.
I still game at 720p because of better framerate

>Ghislaine attended her father's funeral in Jerusalem alongside various Israeli intelligence figures, president Chaim Herzog, and prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, who gave his eulogy. Although a verdict of death by accidental drowning was recorded, Maxwell has since said she believes her father was murdered [...] after his death, Robert Maxwell was found to have fraudulently appropriated the pension assets of Mirror Group Newspapers, a company that he ran and in which he held a large share of ownership, to support its share price. [...] Two of Maxwell's brothers, Ian and Kevin, who were the most involved with their father in daily business dealings, were arrested on 19 June 1992 and charged with fraud related to the Mirror Group pension scandal.
