Is this an effay accessory to EDC on the reg?
>>
No, it's fucking autistic. And I don't mean 4chan autistic like "I think it's stupid", I mean if I see someone pull out a separate device whose functions are built into something everyone carries around anyway, I will assume they're actually on the spectrum.

So, cameras are also indicative of autism?
>>
>>13751149
Different anon but don’t pretend you don’t see the difference

The calculator that OP included is less sophisticated than the ones included in people’s smart phones. Cameras on the other hand tend to have better quality when compared to most phone cameras. A better example would have been using a TI-84

Using spotify on your phone instead of an mp3 player is dumb mate
And an mp3 player is smaller and lighter than a portable charger
>>
>>13751179
I'll bite.
You're creating a false dichotomy. You can put audio files on your phone like you would an mp3, and play them with an on board player. And you really don't need a separate charger. Non-shitbox phones have no problem lasting a full day out, unless you're playing fortnite or something equally retarded on your commutes.
>>
>>13751190
my ipod has a high capacity cf card in it and a legendary dac. it's meant specifically for playing audio (rockboxed too). it has physical buttons that make it easy to use without even looking at it. why the fuck would i use a phone?
>>
>>13751032
The fuck is the point of carrying a calc if it can only do arithmetic?
Get something that does symbolic calculus at least god damn
>>
>>13751215
This, four function calculators are useless as an EDC.
>>
>>13751179
>Using spotify on your phone instead of an mp3 player is dumb mate

you are so full of shit, can you not realise that they are talking about things where there is no difference in functionality/ability.

A calculator on a phone is almost exactly the same as a physical calculator.
A camera or an mp3 player are different in ability and quality of what a phone is capable of.

Also spotify has an enormous library of music and will take forever to even equal the hardware cost of the ipod alone. Don't pretend like you care so much about audio quality on your walk to the bus stop that you need a quality dac and headphones.
>>
>>13751149
Not that other guy, but fuck you anon. Are you so autistic that you think that the camera on an iPhone and an actual camera are in any way comparable? The point is that carrying an inferior version of something that you already have on say a phone is completely superfluous, vs having a good camera that is an upgrade from your phone's isn't. Only exception would be if the camera you carry around is shitter than your phone's, which is hard to do. You're either a retard or a smug prick, either way chug a dick.
>>
>>13751205
That's actually a good point lol
>>
>>13751215
do compact-ish symbolic calculators even exist? I'm not carrying a TI-89 anywhere outside of my schoolbag. My phone can do anything a calculator can do and more, but using a touchscreen is truly suffering
>>
>>13751437
Not the dismissive 'why the fuck would I use a phone' argument. There being a better quality alternative doesn't negate the quality of other options.

I dont always carry my camera so its nice to have a basic one in my phone. Likewise I dont always want to be carrying a camera, an ipod, etc...

>Using spotify on your phone instead of an mp3 player is dumb mate
is also unnecessarily antagonistic, doesn't explain what is wrong with using spotify, and given the level of elitism they can probably barely notice the difference provided by their 'legendary' dac
>>
>>13751513
>>I dont always carry my camera so its nice to have a basic one in my phone
a dedicated music player is much smaller than a camera and personally i use it a lot more

>>13751513
>doesn't explain what is wrong with using spotify
not owning your music, metrics being collected on you, not supporting artists, etc.

>given the level of elitism they can probably barely notice the difference provided by their 'legendary' dac
this doesn't even mean anything
>>
>>13751179
>an mp3 is smaller and lighter
Sure it is, but you’re implying you wouldnt carry your phone with you. Who doesnt carry their phone with them?
>>
>>13751513
Lol I think you responded to the wrong person faggot
>>
>>13751545
uh huh
>>
>>13751539
I acknowledge that a music player is better than spotify but the benefits arent significant enough for me to shell out the significant amount to get one when spotify is 6aud a month.

I mainly take issue with the 'using a phone is dumb' argument, it only works if you already have an mp3 player
>>
>>13751555
my ipod cost grand total of roughly $30. this is equivalent to about 3 months of a spotify subscription
>>
>>13751557
that's pretty good, when I've seen them they are like $100 minimum but it could be my area
>>
>>13751032
only if you need it for your work without the need to take out the cell phone every time. If you are a waiter or merchant, you can use it for accounts
>>
>>13751486
I use a Ti nspire CX CAS daily.
Way easier to use than a phone imo and it's reasonably slim and light compared to a 89
>>
only if you're unironically an engineer, though most would just drop ten bucks on a calculator app.

engineering is effay, engineers are autistic

Ti calculators aren't effay. Get yourself an HP and enjoy the wonderful world of rpn input

Don't have an mp3 player, but I do use my Xperia XZ1 to store my music. Thankfully it has expandable storage

you can't hear a single difference on you FAG or WAVs, plus the S7 has an objectively better... everything. The legend is just that. So legendary, it doesn't exist.

no it's not

>CF/SD adapter unless you get the mini

how can you be this retarded? The sansa clip zip is objectively superior in audio, size, weight, expandable storage and connector.

Lol get real. There's barely enough difference between listening on your phone and on your MP3 player to ever justify having two.
>>
>>13751190
Phone isnt loud enough, and if I'm out and about, I'll be using the battery for maps/strava/ect

>>13752697
Heartily disagree. The size is a factor and so is the battery life. For general purpose it has no effect, but when you have a phablet (aka all phones now) to listen to anime soundtracks when you run for the first time in 3 years, you'd prefer a small mp3 player.
>>
>>13751179
Actually no, Spotify has every song and every artist I listen to without having to carry another device

my battery lost its capacity and the thing is pretty much a brick now. if anything breaks in the ipod i can replace it cheaply

nice job, you bought an outdated piece of shit that is worse than another outdated piece of shit. stay mad people call you a retard for being retarded.

need a soldering iron and a bunch of other bullshit for this. ipod looks cooler anyway

your cope for your shitty ipod is showing. It sucked in 2008 and it sucks in 2018.
>>
>>13752999
>implying i'm an applefag
>implying i give a shit about soldering
it's an ipod mini (2004). they're way easier to maintenance and parts are available in abundance on ebay.
>>
>>13751032
Only if it's the Supreme collab.
>>
>>13753006
I had one but suggesting one now is retarded I got one for $10, swapped out the HDD for 16GB CF in 2008 ($50), a new chinese battery is about $7. 32gig now is 33ish. Wait until your molex connector dies.

Hell even a sansa clip is retarded at this point. They're way overpriced, and the jam isn't terrible but if you don't go to the gym there is 0 reason to use an mp3 player.

Stock calculator apps don’t tyoicsly have all the functions a scientific one would have, more so, one that do offer then may ask you to pay for said features.
>>
>>13753849
holy shit you lug around a lot of stuff. does that all fit in the bag pictured?
>>
>>13751149
DSLRs are higher quality though. You can get apps for your phone that can graph equations and do all kinds of shit a normal calculator (or even a TI-84) can't.
>>
>>13753849
So this is the power of autism...

Do you carry it all around at once? Please tell me you do.

>>13752548
cuz the engineering attracts the most incel of people but engineering itself is cool. that's the distinction.
