  1. Past hour
  2. "instead of google crap" Yeah, because half-baked Chinese software is so much better... I'm no fan of Google but c'mon lol.

    Warranty void if removed stickers?

    I used to work for a company that didn't have stickers on them to prevent opening. There were no warnings about voiding the warranting if you opened up the case. There was a problem with a switch getting stuck in one position. People would get in there and replace it instead if sending it in for repair. They had a way of knowing if someone opened the case, even to look inside. The bottom feet were rubber and covered the screw holes. They had a clear cover on them that would crease if you flexed it to get to the screws inside.
  4. Think the big problem with that is "banding together"; I just don't see that happening but hey, maybe I'm wrong. There are stories about iPhone sales being down because of nationalization. Just add this to the trade war and I'm betting it will increase the decline of non Chinese tech in China.

  6. The guy who thinks buying apps is "disrespecting yourself" and uses a flip phone is going to tell us which phones are best. Yeah... Okay.

    Warranty void if removed stickers?

    depends on the country where you live.
  8. i hope all non-us based mobile manufacturers unite to create one android OS alternative, or custom android with their own applications (on russia or china for example they have a lot of non-google applications that manufacturers can ship instead google crap)
  9. And? Conservatives aren't known for pushing taxes and social programs.
  10. Jesus ######. I hope Huawei continues with their lawsuit. The way they're being treated lately is complete crap when NO ONE is willing to provide any kind of evidence to back up they've done anything wrong... They make good devices.
  11. Today
  12. I wonder if this will make Chinese Huawei customers more nationalistic. I can imagine a scenario where pride takes over and users buy even more Huawei phones just as a big FU to other countries. I also wonder if this backfires on Google. Maybe other Chinese manufacturers realize Android (well, Google services) isn't a safe bet because Google can pull the rug without a legal case being presented, then they band together to adopt a competing operating system.
  13. Although I am not a fan of Chrome, it must be said that Google has been applying a lot of effort for a long time now for GPU acceleration inside Chrome, so I suspect that this story has more going on than meets the eye ATM. BTW, I strongly suspect that Google will be shoehorning their Filament Engine into Chrome at some point which is a full PBR based Render Engine. Hack on that code at: https://github.com/google/filament
  14. This is why getting blacklisted by a major country can bite you. (The same would be true of getting whacked by Russia if that is where you have a large portion of your sales - Lenovo, for example.)
  15. Extract the package, Force install via Device Manager, no need to wait for HP That can cause problems if the oem customizes their drivers for backlighting, etc. HP is notorious for that.
  16. From the reports of code reviews showing poor coding practices, I won’t hold my breath to see that. https://www.google.com/amp/s/w...ard_savaging_annual_report/

    Diagnosing faulty Ethernet controller

    1. drops on non-wireless are almost always a driver issue. 2. but that assumes you have a quality undamaged cable to the switch and the gigabit switch is not overloaded and there is a quality cable from the switch to the router and that the router is powerful enough to handle the traffic. 3. the device driver will have a lot of settings, some of which could have an impact. Sometimes turning off the hardware acceleration in the LAN card makes the issue go away and the boost is not very useful on a modern CPU anyways.
  18. Hey everyone, let’s take advice from someone who doesn’t use/have smartphones. Yeah Yeah Yeah you want to say we should use iCrap? Did I say that?

  20. Looking forward to see the new super advanced tech Huawei bring out that will make Google's android look like a dead snail on the supercar racetrack.
  21. Damn, that's brutal. Feel sorry for anyone who owns an Hauawi (or as I say Hawaii) phone.
