Be smart with all your expenses. Learn to cook cheap. Don't waste money on disposable or unnecessary shit. Prioritize saving. Figure out a better paying job you can do and invest in the necessary training/education. Don't have kids.

Why does almost everyone use iPad for their tablet instead of other products? iPad is needlessly bloated and overpriced. (I haven't had it tho). Is iPad that good or Is it everyone deluded by iMeme?

>>70639342
I've been using my iPad Air 2 for over 4 years at this point. The battery is starting to read inaccurately, but that's expected after 4 years. If it gets worse I can simply open it up and plop a new one in, but it isn't a major issue yet.

I use an android phone and have a Linux desktop, but still enjoy using iOS for tablets. Haven't found anything comfier to use for reading doujins at 2 AM
>>
In my opinion since I've had two iPad minis previously, iPads work really well but you're still better off just using a laptop. And most android tablets are either complete junk, under-powered, or are just as overpriced as iPads but work just as well.

Just my two cents. I've used both.
>>
>>70639298
Bought my iPad mini 2 (retina) in 2015 March, using ever since. Its amazing for what Im using it for (casual gaming, music, duckduckgoing stuff etc) and still has a decent performance. Though I remember it was shit for a while when Apple intentionally slowed it down with iOS 10... that said, the latesr OS made it almost faster than it had originally been and I bet that Android tablets have a much shorter lifetime. Im not an Applefag but I read it multiple times that their iPads are the best deals, as they are value for money, and you dont upgrade them as often as a smarphone.

I've looked at Rust and it looks like a very good language but like someone said
>What do you even use Rust for?
Also the only language I really know is C# but to an intermediate degree, I've tried learning C++ in the past but there wasn't any learning resources available for poorfags like me.
>>
>>70641633
Explain. I'm looking at the languages from a Java view and trying to decide what works best for me. I'm assuming this has to deal with ownership.

>>70641650
yes
if you only know java then the borrow checker will be confusing and annoying

Well what's the alternative? Just take the archaic C++ in the ass and be done with it?

They are shit, especially the ARM-based ones.
>>
The good is that they are cheap, small, and usually run a RISC Acorn CPU, which affords it much better battery life due to the reduced power draw. This makes them ideal for school kids who really only need a word processor, calculator, and a web browser.
The bad is that the software pre-installed is all Google, which has some severe implications for security. This is a worry, since Chromebooks are mostly geared towards minors. Yes, Chrome OS is GNU/Linux, but with so many layers of Google abstraction it isn't really obvious.

They could have been OK if they continued to be cheap.

If not getting interviews, work on making resume look more presentable and check for mistakes that make you look dumb out the gate. Also put experience for stupid applications like office and acrobat and experience doing the most common things you'd likely need to do on the job. 9/10 your certs aren't even know by whomever is doing the filtering, and if you only have 1, that makes non-technical people think you have little drive.

If you are getting interviewed, it's something with YOU, be it your appearance, hygiene, or personality.

Make sure you are 5 min early to the interview. Don't come too early or you are making the interviewer need to rush (even if you don't intend for them to), and DON'T come late (gives worst first impression). Sit in the parking lot for a while if you have to.

Dress to impress (dress shirt, tucked, slacks).

Showered, brushed teeth, smell neutral (don't go heavy on cologne or body spray, just get deodorant on your pits.)

Express passion for field. As others have said, let them know that you like tinkering with computers/servers in your free time and have a home lab of your own). Stay in comfort zone of IT field if you don't have small talk game. As long as you make a good impression, even if they don't go for you for this job, if you leave a good enough impression, they keep you in mind in case things go south or they need more help. Some jobs if they have enough budget even make up positions to get good hires if they think you are worth it.

Once you get more experience under your belt, much easier.

I do the same stuff myself and get about 62K if I work overtime (easy).
