  1. Past hour
  2. Maybe I do need to get in on the Insider Builds and test this out because it hardly doesn't look complete to me, unless upgrading some UI aspects, redoing the Microsoft Store (for the third time), and getting a new widgets component is all the hype... Not tryin to be a negative nancy, but I was hoping all the news was the start of things to come, not the "Oh, no we're done... you'll get more updates later" that's typical of the gaming industry for example. We'll see I guess, but at this rate, I'm not going to be upgrading any time soon (since I actually can't without the stupid TPM chip anyway).
  3. By far the worst Ive seen too. Id say Showgirls was even better.
  4. They will release 11 half baked in October. It will take them 6 years to fix the downgraded experience. Right now its only for adding trivial nonsense. I'm curious to see the next build. Let me guess.... They added transparency to the right click menu for the recycle bin and made some panel round. Fanboys who don't use Windows for productivity will cream their pants. Heaven forbid they increase consistency with the new look. Thats been the number one complaint about Windows 10 since day one. yeah, as out of touch as people at microsoft, are you one of them? Am I one of what? Please tell me you are not so naive to have missed the limitless complaints about UI consistency in Windows 10. You would have had to purposely dug a hole in the sand and stuck your head in it to have missed it. UI consistency? that's the only thing you have to report? lol this is why devs and artists chose Apple Wow ignorant too. All in one package. How did we get to be so blessed to have you here?
  5. Both, I think. People have had the time to stop and think about their worth or lack thereof (personal and financial).
  6. F9 and it was probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
  7. Wouldn't the author of the podcast himself including those ads and not the 2nd one? Try playing back older podcasts. I haven't seen ads in Spotify as of yet as a premium user. Joe Rogan's podcast has them, as does Breaking Point. It's a bit of a sticky situation because Spotify was brought up centered around music, and the podcast side is a bit of a new thing. I think they're still trying to find a good middle ground because honestly, I do believe content creators deserve to be making money for their work (as do artists), but even if Spotify prevents these sort of ads, there's nothing to stop the podcaster from adding his own sponsored bit in there, just as you see on YouTube videos already. I believe at the end of the day, people need to acknowledge that this stuff isn't just made for free. It takes time, consumes data, requires editing, mixing, along with content checking to ensure you're not playing copyrighted content that will get you flagged or "canceled". I don't have a problem with a podcast noting their sponsor(s), compared to sites like Twitch or YouTube which will just overlay their own ads over videos regardless. It's all a mess honestly. One trick you can do for podcasts like Rogan's though for example is manually skipping 0:30~ in so it bypasses the 4-5 minutes of sponsored ads...
  8. Today
  9. There are two reasons for YouTube Premium: no ads and the ability to play videos with the lockscreen on. If you're not on a phone then you're left with one reason to get the sub, so I can understand why they're trying this. But it's too late for most; there are plenty of workarounds that have been available forever. Don't forget downloading videos when you're on your next flight. I'm trying to keep this in mind when I fly to Washington next month; I'm about out of shows to watch on Netflix these days.

  11. Harder to do on mobile and on devices like xbox. i dont use on mobile devices, im not a child OK BOOMER! But seriously, I watch YouTube on my phone when I'm elbows deep in a server trying to correct an issue and need a little guidance, or simply want to catch up on the news when I'm doing laundry. You know, kid stuff!
  12. Not on mobile platforms And yes I know about Vanced... I get everything working well on vanced. what am I missing? I didn't even know about Vanced till now. Not that I use YT on my phone as much as I do on my PC. Wasting time on YT is the easy way to kill your battery life. I'm probably in the minority here, but I subscribe to YouTube Premium specifically for adblock, downloading vids, and background playback for some shows that are basically video podcasts. Just sayin for those that would like to listen to certain shows for example, without eating up all their battery or data. It sounds like a lot, but considering I watch YouTube 10x more than anything on Netflix these days, it's not a big deal.
  13. the 10 bit color problem is a huge show stopper for me. Not sure if its on MS or Nvidia to fix that. MS is putting their fingers in their ears and going LALALALALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU over it though. What is the problem? It won't do 10 bit color? It can, but there is graphical corruption and glitching out all throughout the UI until you drop down to 8 bit. Not sure if resolution plays a part too, but I know with Nvidia, paired with high resolution and 10 bit color makes an almost guaranteed problem.it’s hard to miss when you see buttons disappear when you mouse over them, or text not rendering.

  15. Drinking and typing is a bad combination. i gave up trying to understand that.
  16. I've managed to watch the first two episodes...it is, um, something. Episode 2 was a really hard watch..so I've given up on it for now. The Transformers trilogy has been pretty good.
  17. I'm still grandfathered in with the GPMAA (aka YouTube Music + YouTube Premium) plan for $7.99/month.

    Joe Biden - 46th President of the United States

    Well I was half right...lol .. got the number 4 billion correct.
  19. I just don't understand why this movie gets such a low score (4.x) on IMDB. I thought it was cute and the WB franchise tie'ins were creative. It was also fun to pause the movie every now and then to checkout who was in the crowd. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.
  20. I thought I had heard that only about $4billion HAD been given out, out of $47billion. Here's a paragraph from a quick search I found that says the amount they funded, but don't see where the amount that has been distruted is. Wondering if that $47billion is the actual total of the CARES package that came out back when, or is it just for the evictions? "States and local jurisdictions, whose disparate programs have been mired in bureaucracy and communications problems, have disbursed just a fraction of the $47 billion in federal funding enacted since December to help struggling renters pay their housing costs and landlords recoup lost revenue.

  21. Not necessarily. Their high end graphics offerings cannot live off of AS alone, and will likely accept video cards.
  22. As bad as that last line is really, that we could even think that way, I agree.
  23. Of course. Its been that way for the past several years. One should look into the Federal Government's requirements that OSs they use must be current versions. WIndows-10 is quickly becoming "too old," so MS has to come up with a new version, i.e., Windows-11. Pity, that MS doesn't admit to this external pressure being placed upon them. Your tin foil hat is slipping.
