you dont have to, if you have plex pass ($150 one time charge or $5 a month) they provide the server and you just put your media on google drive or whatever

my wife (waifu) has been using a 6S+ for some time now (many years) and it is bad and the camera is apparently unusable and she wants to get the pixel 2 to replace it.

she actually, out loud irl, asked me if it was okay that her chat messages would be green instead of blue, and if i would love her less.

i said it definitely would make me love her less, but she's her own woman and can use inferior hardware if she must.

my work computer is stuck on a really dumb usb3.1 to dvi dongle that dies on me every now and then for a bit, and now our supply dude is playing dead for a week ago since i trashed their plan for buying monitor extensions for my colleagues (worthless expenditure of 4000 dkk), and instead asked them to get me, alongside with already ordered new monitor, a 700 dkk converter from thunderbolt 3 to dual displayport

Shifty Pony posted:

I suspect that the real issue isn't the butterfly mechanism itself being particularly vulnerable to dirt because unless a perfectly sized sand grain managed to get jammed at the flexing hinge point there's really no place for dirt to get that doesn't also exist with a scissor style mechanism.

no, the problem is that the keys have loving 0.7mm of travel so nothing moves enough to dislodge any chunk of dirt that gets in there. with scissor keys you can usually hold up the keyboard while hitting the key a few times and at some point during the cycle the movement of the parts will give enough clearance to let the dirt fall out but that doesn't work with the mbp.

then you have to add in that each key sits in a little aluminum-walled pit which will trap any dirt that manages to work its way in until it is either crushed to powder or manages to jam the key.

chiclet keyboards are an abomination. ultra-low travel chiclet keyboards doubly so.

yeah its that. every keyboard gets dirt, but if you normally just spam the button, remove cap, or blow ure mouth or air can, with apple butterfly, even artifically elevated, you buy a new computer. the spacebar key is so hosed even apple geniuses or engineers are unable to guarantee safe removal of it, for instance

just the Apple Watch by itself overtook Rolex this year to become the number one watch maker in the world by revenue.


who cares?
apple is the most profitable PC maker by far, despite only selling a fraction of world wide sales
apple is the most profitable phone maker by far, despite only selling a fraction of world wide sales
apple is the most profitable tablet maker by far, ...
apple is the most profitable wearable/smartwatch maker by far, ...

Rolex and the other Swiss brands may be more profitable. they definitely don’t sell as many units as Apple does. but Apple doesn’t sell anywhere near the number of Casio terrorist watches that are sold worldwide.

before thunderbolt 3 there was no transport capable of carrying a 5k 60Hz video signal, so it couldnít be done in an external monitor.

there is only one 5k monitor on the market, and it only works with macs.

it can be connected to any product that supports DisplayPort at x3 speeds and any OS that can support 5k displays without making GBS threads itself. currently both of those are only made by apple.
