I have a heavily modified modified Nexus 5 running Lineage OS. I soldered the original battery flex cable to an LG G2 3000mAh battery. I also soldered on a 64GB flash chip but the phone would only recognize and write to 32GB of it. So I did some software modifications and used some files from a Nexus 5X to get it to address all 64GB. Now it works fine, even through updates. I think I'll only have problems with major version upgrades, which is still a simple fix of copying and pasting files. Not sure since I've only gone from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 OTA so far.

There's literally nothing to hate. This is my dream phone.

T500 released 2 years after T61 released. T61 has Nvidia Quadro / X3100, but I don't think T500 R3650 or X4500 sucks more than Quadro or X3100.
Use mint or fedora, they're both learner friendly and easy to install

So basically it's now completely illegal to stream movies in germany. I used to stream a lot of them with my former gf a few months ago.

Am I fucked now? I already got fined 2000€ for torrenting last year (and never did it again since then). Or is there a chance I won't get fined fortunes when I just stop now?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
did you seriously pay 2000€ to some scammer ?
i torrent a few 100 gb / month and never got any problems.
no its not.
The lawsuit concluded that only those who PAY for streaming illegal content can be prosecuted at all.
Meaning it is now official that free streaming is legal!

Also you are a turbocuck for paying the fine. Either ignore it completely or give a "modifizierte Unterlassungserklärung" where you say that you will not do anything bad in the future but deny that you did anything in the past, and of course refuse to pay anything.
So there was one judgement that said streaming is an illegal download, can't find an english article

Another one is about the streaming box where it originated: https://www.engadget.com/2017/04/26/eu-court-rules-selling-pre-loaded-pirate-boxes-is-illegal/

I didn't pay the fine.
A lawyer did the Unterlassungserklärung, but he had to do it twice and case is still not closed.

Thank you for your answers, I really appreciate it

7740k might even hit 6ghz on water since it has no integrated gpu. What's amd's response to this?
314 replies and 60 images omitted. Click here to view.
desu for me 7700k is just the same shit ryzen 7 1700x is.
Only difference is that R7 might have better performances with the time since programs might be more and more multithreaded + optimisation.
According to your garbage benchmark 7600k is better than the 7700k in gaymen
Holy shit Intel is complete garbage at literally everything.
We don't know exactly what he meant yet, though. It's quite possible that he means that the theoretical throughput is higher, rather than that it exhibits higher IPC "in practical applications".

That interpretation is not at all unreasonable, seeing exactly as how Zen has more capable decoders (4 vs. 1+3), a wider fetch from the µop cache (6 vs. 4), much wider retire (8 vs. 4), and more issue ports (10 vs. 8). So that, on specifically tuned code, it may very well be able to blow Intel out of the water. But that doesn't automatically mean that it beats Core in code that hasn't been specifically tuned, or that doesn't exhibit inherently high ILP.

then stop looking at ultrabooks if thats not your use case faggot.
But there are ultrabooks that have USB A anon. Only Apple products are shit at connectivity. My XPS has 3 USB A's and a card reader, while being smaller and weighing less than a MBP.

The Acer Swift 7 does not have this problem.

My MBP is now 7 years old (pic related, my mid 2010 MBP). It's still running as well as the day i bought it. Due to:

Rugged build
Fully integrated ecosystem
Excellent screen
High quality components
POSIX Compliance Unix OS

Macbooks still have headphone jacks. A pretty good one iirc. If talking about the iPhone, just use a dongle, one even comes with it.
I actually have, 2013 MBP. It's not as ergonomic as a thinkpad. Stop evading the issue.

I used a Macbook Pro back in college. However, I've used a Windows PC for my daily driving, and gaming. So, I have recently gotten a job that is forcing back into the Mac ecosystem.

Employer-kun gave me a choice between a 2015 MBPr, and a 2016 MBP with Touch Bar. I decided to go to Best Buy to get a feel for both machines before I gave my answer.

Firstly, WHAT THE FLYING FUCK? I am triggered as hell! Their Macbook, with the first iteration of the butterfly switch doesn't give any feeling of having pressed the button. Their 2016 MBP with TB, with the second iteration of the butterfly switch is slightly better, but it's not usable for any prolonged period.

Needless to say, I am taking the 2015 MBPr for work, but seriously wtf was Johnny Ives, or Tim Cook smoking when they decided to implement this horrid butterfly switch?
