  2. You can now buy a 15-inch Surface Book 2 with a Core i5 for $1,999 by Rich Woods When Microsoft first introduced the Surface Book 2 in October 2017 in two sizes, the larger 15-inch model started out at a thousand dollars more than the smaller 13.5-inch model. This was because, while the base model 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 was offered with a seventh-gen Core i5 (eventually refreshed with eighth-gen) and no dedicated GPU, the starting point on the 15-inch variant was an eighth-generation Core i7 and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. That changes today though. Microsoft has begun selling a 15-inch Surface Book 2 with an Intel Core i5-8350U, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $1,999, $500 less than the previous entry point. Like all Core i5 models of the Surface Book 2, there is no dedicated GPU. The new model was first spotted over a month ago, showing up as pre-orders on Best Buy Canada that would ship on June 18. After the story became widespread, the listing was removed, although it's back today along with a listing on Bestbuy.com. The Core i5 variant of the Surface Book 2 isn't yet available on the Microsoft Store, although that will likely show up soon. If you want to check it out on Bestbuy.com for $1,999, you can find it here, or you can check it out on Best Buy Canada where it costs $2,599.99 CAD.

  4. > Economists and other public figures have been stating for years now, ever since the emergence of bitcoin, that blockchain technology will be revolutionary And no. Blockchain has some nice features but it has a big problem. It is not scalable. Right now it's more expensive (slow and unsafe, cause it's visible) than a CC transaction.

    Joke of the day

    Alright, that made me laugh out loud, so you now it's got to be good.
  6. > It also cited UNESCO which predicts that $25 billion is lost in remittance fees by No, it's not. Fees are earning (not lost) for some companies. And those companies employ people that activate the economy. However, remittances are money that left the host country, it is negative money to the economy, and it's aimed at the pocket of people that usually are not an active part of the economy of the host and home country. I can understand to send money to your old parents back in their home country (because we aren't black heart) but other that, it affects the economy of both countries. Remittance is not an investment. For example, Honduras is an addict to remittance.

    I would give it to my husband.
  8. The right Windows key and the context menu key just aren't in a convenient location for their functions. They could change both of them to do other things, but they should be things that you would commonly need while typing (when your hand is near them).
  9. It's a cute phone, but ultimately a device with absurd price. Why would anyone pick this over something from Xiaomi that would almost give you a flagship performance for same money?
  10. I think the bigger issue is that they initially denied it.
  11. As if they weren't already in trouble, what could they possibly have been thinking when injecting ads? Makes me think of a President Trump tantrum!
  12. Palm unveils unlocked version of its phone, now up for pre-order at $349 by Jay Bonggolto Palm's availability on the market has been limited, since it was only available through Verizon. That is, until today. Palm has announced the unlocked version of its standalone smartphone, and it's now available for pre-order from its online storefront at $349. Today's announcement marks another step in Palm's effort to rid its device of certain limitations that have been in place for quite some time. If you recall, the company introduced the standalone model in April of this year, expanding its functionality beyond being a secondary device with no SIM card of its own to becoming your main handset, complete with its own number and data plan. The latest turn of events also marks an expanded availability for Palm, albeit in the U.S. only. In addition to Verizon, the handset can also be used with other major carriers in the country including AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS. Dennis Miloseski, co-founder at Palm, said: “With so many cellular options available in the U.S., we wanted our customers to be able to choose how they use and how they connect their Palm. We received a huge response from digital minimalists looking to just carry their essentials, families wanting to connect kids with less distraction, and athletes desiring powerful connectivity on the go, so we made Palm available to them across more mobile networks in the U.S.” To recap, Palm features a 3.3-inch display, 12MP rear camera, and an 8MP selfie snapper. Under the hood, it packs 32GB of storage and runs Android 8.1. The phone comes in Titanium and Gold color variants, and shipping is scheduled to kick off in August. It will ship with a free leather case with neck and wrist lanyards.

  14. I've been in IT for 14 years...never knew about the Shift + F10 shortcut. I would always use the dedicated key mentioned in the article.
  15. Injecting ads on a lock screen ........ genius idea ! Especially when you're already under a microscope, even better!
  16. Whoever came up with that name deserves to be tortured. It sounds horrible and unfriendly.

    They do reach me. But I make the mistake to read them at work, and when I'm home, the notification symbol is gone from the site and I lose track of it. Sorry Thanks for the translation. I'll add it to the code. I'm not sure if the following proposal is suitable for you, but I'd like to point out that it exists. Because I got translations through multiple channels (multiple e-mail addresses, Neowin, Twitter), it became a real challenge to keep track of them and I even forgot to include some. I'm trying to centralize translation requests on GitHub. But that requires translators to create a GitHub account, and cloning the Dopamine repository. By doing so, translators can keep their translation file up to date, and push the changes to my Dopamine repository through a pull request. That way, no translation is ever forgotten, and everything is centralized.
  18. I defended them in the last post about them losing $30B. What were they thinking injecting ads

  22. Why would anyone use this over say WhatsApp (or variations) ? WhatsApp has a webclient and end-to-end encryption etc. Entering an established market with an inferior product is not really the way to gain traction ... They won't unfortunately. WhatsApp doesn't have the traction it does overseas unfortunately, but people will often default to Facebook Messenger otherwise. I suppose at the end of the day, we're all answering to Facebook.
  23. I don't really take full advantage of Gold, but I like the free games that come with it. I also don't pay for Gold - I've been getting it free from Microsoft Rewards (12 months at a time)
  24. Any bets on whether or not every single Facebook owned application and site will quietly opt you in by default on mining?
  25. Cry me a river for Huawei. I don’t agree with this ban but when I look at Huawei I see government funded and supported with almost all of it’s IP stolen from other companies and provide affordable networking and communications equipment because of Chinese government currency manipulation and ridiculously cheap slave like labor with almost no right. No free press , no union and Voice. Someone like You would have most likely been sentenced to death many times over and over criticizing state or companies over there for things like pollution of the air for example Not having a free press, unions, cheap labor and the rest of this list has nothing to do with what they are being accused of. I never said there is a connection and I said I am against it anyway. This ban is designed to put pressure on China for trade negotiations which is useless. All I said is that sympathy for Huawei is nonsense because of the reason I mentioned
