>In eight hours of network traffic analysis there where 5508 connection attempts that tried to send data back to 51 different Microsoft IP addresses.
>At 30 hours of use, the OS expanded the data reporting to 113 non-private IP addresses. Forbes’ Gordon Kelly comments that: “Being non-private means there is the potential for hackers to intercept this data. I’d argue this is the greatest cost to owning Windows 10.”
>Using another clean installation of Windows 10 with all data tracking again disabled and adding a third party tool DisableWinTracking, another 30-hour testing session was done. Windows 10 still managed to “phone home” with data 2785 times to 30 different IP addresses.

I know right, wanted to make it sound like that :')

Good projectors are very pricey. I had a E400,- projector which was a piece of shit, couldn't see anything without closing the shutters entirely. Sitting in darkness all day was very depressing and unhealthy. Upgraded to that E1000,- 4000Lumen projector, can play with both windows completely open now.

Does the second hand quickly speed up and catch up to where it's supposed to be or does it really stop completely? Some movements have indirectly driven seconds hands where the seconds hand can sometimes stop if it gets jolted slightly. It has no effect on actual timekeeping and the seconds hand will catch up to where it's supposed to be, but it looks bad. Most old movements are indirect drive, most modern movements are direct drive but there are exceptions like Vostok movements and 8xxx series Miyotas.

Play books

Not even trolling, its by far the best, it has night mode, a nice UI, it saves all of your PDF/ebook on the cloud, it saves the page where you left and syncs with all of your devices...
Other than the play store, its the only Google app on which i havent been able to find a "serious" alternative

Yes it does.
RPI2 with proper configuration, debian and correct overclock gives you decent performance.
To play videos use software that can utilize the GPU. With no hardware acceleration you will need all 4 cores to play videos.

Use this on RPI1

The mission of /ptg/ is to promote the highest possible standards of tracker service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.

Rooted cm13 nightly on Moto x 2014 Verizon

Pros:
Ad blocking and background play for YouTube
Ad blocking in general
Battery life
Better customization (themes)
Being able to update phone past carrier support (ie android 6.0 on carrier Moto x, updates stopped at 5.1)
More little tweaks


Con:
Can be intensive to start
Can boot loop (not hard to get out of, I have done it twice)
Sometimes requires research to get things to work (Xposed for me, had trouble installing the framework)

It's not worth it IMO. A lot of the features that came with the phone won't work.

>fingerprint scanner
>no slow-mo
>worse audio
>no manual camera, no various modes..
>worse battery life

Rooted stock is the best - just remove the things you don't want and you're pretty much set.

>t. a flashaholic
>>
>>52914683
>risks
Gertain one-click-root programs might install adware on your android device or desktop pc.
With most manufacturers, warranty is void if you root.
>rewards
-full control over filesystem. mount, umount, trim, mkfs all you want
-full control over apps. Remove unwanted crap, move stuff to /system, block certain features of apps like ads
-fine tune the linux kernel undernath: change processor frequency and freq governor, IO scheduler, caching, firewall etc.
-run gahnoo slash loonix from a chroot (loop device or partition). debian, ubuntu, arch, even fucking gentoo. you name it
>>
>>52917968
Fingerprint scanner and slow-mo are not working, that's true. Worse audio, I'd have disagree. Viper4android can really improve the sound quality on every ROM. No manual camera - I don't think that our phone even supports that. Camera modes - how many of them have you actually used, other than HDR? Worse battery life - not true. Look at my screen shot. I used to get 5 and a half to 6 hours of screen on time on AICP 10 ROM.

>he fell for the tablet meme

What's the point? It's just a laptop with less functionality, worse performance, no keyboard, 1 or no USB ports, etc. etc.
