    That all fine and dandy if the US wasn't spying on us so as they are all spying on us, I'm going to buy from who delivers the best product at the best price. At the end of the day, we all know that a lot of countries are spying on us, including the US, I don't like it but that just the way it is and I'm certainly not going to ban a company like Huawei because the US government feels under threat from China growing power around the world which is what this is really all about.

    There is NO proof found Huawei spying and for NO brainers, for god sacks and trolls, Huawei is a private company, NOT branch of the Chinese government and There is solid proof CIA, NSA spying on American citizens, and 5 eyes countries spying on the universe.

    I'm going to be blunt here because I see several issues with how you handle Windows 10; you're likely causing a good portion of the instability yourself by force disabling core functionality. Cortana is in the process of being separated out and can easily be properly disabled from Settings now without resorting to force disabling through registry or deleting files. both of which can cause some instability. I don't understand why people are obsessed with disabling telemetry. it has been there since the XP days; it doesn't track anything personal but grabs things like crash logs and such so Microsoft knows what to fix/adjust to improve stability; disabling that means Microsoft doesn't know what breaks or is broken on your setup so they cannot compensate. Live tiles there's nothing wrong with and if you don't use it it's just not there. nothing to disable. if you don't like tiles period just unpin them all and the start menu will just be your A-Z programs list. Or you could always install a 3rd party Start Menu replacement and be happy with that. And I have no idea what you mean by "cancer bandwidth" function so you're probably looking too far into things there. Lastly WHY are you so against updates? They keep your system secured. Windows, Linux, Mac, whatever. They all need updates to remain secure. If you refuse/ignore updates you're just asking for trouble down the line. There's NO reason to be so against them. Driver updates are another story as they are the ones that can sometimes break things, but Security updates an Cumulative updates should NEVER be skipped or ignored. So MIcrosoft forces the updates, big deal. That's because the average user (not you or me) doesn't even know what an update is but Microsoft still wants those users to remain secure and with the latest features. I guarantee you that if you were not to mess with so many core features and functionality then your system would remain a LOT more stable and be able to do everything you need it to. There is nothing wrong with Windows 10 and in regards to gaming it is one of the best OS's at this point even for legacy gaming Microsoft has done a lot to improve gaming performance since Windows 10 No offence but the problem is not Windows 10, the problem is YOU

    Well if apple can make one that works, is released to the market and stays out. Then they can have the title.

    you mean like any other stock or share? Share prices are based on something tangible, like the performance of the company. Unless you are speculating on penny stocks, share prices are far less volatile than crypto currency. Share prices are not linked to performance. They're linked to perceived value, faith in the company and overall perception. Performance may increase faith and, as a consequence, perceived value. Performance may well be damage control, pushing employees hard and appearing desperate. "Performance" in some circumstances can actually indirectly lower stock value. Faith is not tangible.

    I can't agree with those saying that the OP is the cause of his issues with Windows 10. Windows 10 is an irritating OS. This is my list: - It comes with lots of unwanted stuff pinned to the start menu - The start menu search doesn't always work (e.g. searching for for a program which is in the start menu, doesn't always produce a result) - Windows updates require a reboot and need time to get applied before logon is possible - Feature updates contain so many changes that they have a risk of breaking a working system - WIFI dies randomly, and can only be revived by a reboot (this might be driver related. But a PITA that this Broadcom chip still doesn't work with Windows 10) I replaced Windows 10 with Ubuntu and i'm very happy. None of the issues above. Updates that do'n require a reboot, are bliss (Most updates don't need a reboot, only kernel updates. Those are applied after a voluntary reboot, any time, which doesn't cause extra downtime before the logon screen). That being said, Linux takes some getting used to. It is a completely different beast. A lot of software in your workflow will need to be replaced by open source alternatives.

    For me, an operating system update should not break my workflow. Security updates are good. Bug fixes are great. A good operating system, in my opinion, is one that can be updated without forcing me to deal with new issues or change the way I use my computer. I have no problem with Windows or Linux installing updates that require rebooting every night if needed but the changes introduced by those updates should never be intrusive. It means I can resume my work and use my computer immediately after updates and reboots.

    Hmmm...not very good advice. Linux has security vulnerabilities like any other OS...so it's best to keep it patched like any other OS.

    So we have a local "It's $5". It's a place that has a bunch of bins **** (probably mostly amazon returns) that you can go through and maybe find some good deals. So they restock the bins on Saturdays and Sundays. Then Monday it's 2 for 5 all the way up to Friday when it's 10 for $5. I went on Saturday morning when they restocked at 9 am, I was number 19 through the door. 1 min after entering and looking in the second bin I found ... So if anyone has this store near them, they may want to have a look some morning when they restock. So far this watch is amazing, I love IT! I love the second screen that turns (In the above photo) on when the phone goes to sleep so you can still quickly see the time.

    Would eMMC really offer any advantages over SD cards? True, it would be faster. However I was thinking about shelf life. SD cards die fast when their being continuously written to (such as when an OS is loaded from one). The Pine64 utilizes socketed eMMC, so it would have been nice to at least get an eMMC socket on the Pi4, for people who intent to run an OS on one for an extended period of time (and the USB and ethernet would be free for other things).

    Would eMMC really offer any advantages over SD cards? Yes, speed. Even 8gb for a lighter Linux distro could provide a substantial speed boost.

    Most Windows 10 issues I have seen stem from bad drivers. You also seem to tweak and disable many of the core features, which could be causing some of your issues. If you have a Windows 7 license you can go ahead and install that, you can also install Windows 8.1 or you can go with a Linux distro. It is your choice, however it does seem like you've made up your mind and do not want Windows 10. What do you use your computer for? If you move to Linux, just make sure any apps you have used on Windows have a comparable Linux version.

    Sure it is ... it is worth $10,594.03 $10598.61 $10,630.08 right now ... so if you bought it at let's say ... $3500 and decided to sell it right now you'd make $7000 Though I hope it doesn't continue to climb ... remember what it did to GPU prices last time.

    Just another reason not to buy Chinese rip off phones... As a consumer, I will buy whoever delivers the best and I don't care if it's a rip off product or not as long as the product is of good quality, after all, it's not like companies care about our well being, why should we? Yup this is why China is a superpower. Copy and cheap labor Every country and every company copies other countries and companies, if have been happening for years and it will never stop. everybody copies everybody ​​​​ True and they all will continue to do that if it offers a advantage, the only thing with China is that they are more up front about it whereas the west are more sneaky about it, in that sense, I can respect what China is doing more then the so called good guys in the west that use cloak and dagger tactics to be made to be seemed as the good guy where in reality, they are doing the same thing China is doing.

    I get where you're coming from, but the database stuff I have to run is Windows based. I don't think any of it would install on a NAS. I know I went overkill on it probably, but I just decided that I'll pay what I pay and just have enough power for growth.

    My impression of eMMC is that it's like taking an SD card and soldering it onto the system board. I own a cheap laptop that uses eMMC storage and it's and awful, slow thing. I really doubt it's doing any better job at wear leveling compared to an SD card.

    An old Italian man goes to the doctor. He tells the doctor "Doc, I need my sperm count". The doctor replies "you're 80 years old, you don't need your sperm count". The old Italian man persists and eventually the doctor gives him a sample cup and tells him "go home and bring this back in a couple days"... The old man comes back three days later and gives the doctor an empty sample. The doctor asked what happened. The old man says, "I tried my left hand... And nothing, I tried my right hand .. nothing. I went and asked my sweet wife. She tried her left hand... nothing. She tried her right hand... nothing. Doc, she even tried her mouth.... still nothing. So I went up to the woman who lives above us and Doc, let me tell you, this girl is fit. She tried her left hand... nothing. She tried her right hand... nothing. I even got her to try her mouth... Still nothing.

    Just like gold isn't inherently worth anything. Just like the dollars or euros in your pocket aren't worth anything. It's what they're worth to other people and financial institutions that gives them value. Just like bitcoin Eventually, we'll move to a completely new standard of currency. Like printer ink.

    "I don't like it therefore it sucks" Ok buddy. I use overlays for media apps all the time but yes you speak for everyone. If you find it annoying have you ever considered just not using it? not possible not to use it, they force it on you eventually. Maybe it would to know that a Window that stays on top is NOT an 'Overlay' ? Ok, maybe this isn't a technical complaint you have. So then I must ask, how on earth is any feature being forced on you? If you don't like something, don't use it. PERIOD. (How did we to 2019 and now every new feature people see as a bad thing. When did software having too many features become an issue? I can get an argument about software UX complexity of features, but that is left for things like AutoCAD or Maya, not a freaking video player.)

    They'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they didn't. The communities behind the previous Flight Simulator games are massive (same as the old Microsoft Train Simulator and newer non-Microsoft train sim games).

    "I don't like it therefore it sucks" Ok buddy. I use overlays for media apps all the time but yes you speak for everyone. If you find it annoying have you ever considered just not using it? where did he say he speaks for everyone? Do people have to put a disclaimer saying: "the views expressed above or below are my own and not to be construed as an implied statement that said views are correct for all people"? Good grief, learn to step back and just accept some people write their own opinions and leave it at that. The default position should be that statements are opinions, and only when people use the (increasingly used and stupid) "no one likes" phrases can we then argue "you don't speak for everyone". with a blanket statement like that it's definitely sounding like he's speaking for everyone ...

    This stupid urge of "But think of the children!" is really getting on my nerves. Stop treating people like they are retarded morons who will get scared for life if they see a god damn bob or vagane. Or some blood. Or a gun. Or some shooting. We've been subject to all this stuff for decades, centuries and thousands of years. And we all turned out fine. You can't fix few broken individuals by behaving like dictators or fascists on whole nations.

    Straight up stealing content Are the Genius lyrics behind a paywall or anything? If not can't any search engine scrape their site including the lyrics, that's how they work after all. Of course they are supposed to link to the site the results came from, if Google is just posing their lyrics without any link or mention of where they came from that's definitely not right imo. If you search for lyrics on Google, it shows the lyrics on the search page, but it doesn't show where those lyrics came from at all. Whereas if you do the same on DuckDuckGo you get part of lyrics and it includes a link to the site for more. The DDG approach, with preview of content and link to the full content, that is the best middle ground for consumers and content providers. The Google approach, with stealing of the whole content and no link to where it came from, that's pretty bad and unfair.
