What kind of tablet sohuld I buy /g/? Android, windows or iPad?
I want to use use it to read pdfs and light web browsing when Im at university and to shitpost when Im at home.
It has to be close to 10 inches in sized, I dont want a small screen.
Windows seems useful but I already have a notebook for pretty much all my needs. iPad seems good as well but I seems a bit overpriced for what Ill e using it. Are android tablets good enough? I never really heard good things about it.
There are no other good tablets in android and Windows(excluding surface). I am personally using iPad, so I would strongly suggest that product. As you have to use it for reading books and pet it has special functionalities like Retina display and also night shift mode and built quality is also awesome so would stay with you for long time. Price is more but it is worth it.
Are there any chrome themes that don't look like shit?
Breeze-gtk looks nice, too bad you can't get it on Winblows
Is there a way to use a comfy phone and also have mobile wifi hotspot?
wrong you fuck ass.
you want a "galapagos phone," or a flip that runs android, and you'll probably have to import it from japan. won't be cheap http://www.kyoex.com/categories/Shop-Flip-Phones/
Is the difference between 1440p@144hz an 1080p@144hz really noticable? And is it even worth the jump in price?
yes and yes
but keep in mind that you will need a more powerful gpu for 1440p. i have a gtx 980ti and i usually get between 70 and 110 fps in modern games on the highest settings. i have to turn down the settings to high if i want the full benefit of 144hz.
if you invest in a monitor with gsync, you won't notice a difference, though.
I plan on upgrading to a gtx 1080, as I've heard it can run most games pretty well in 1440p. I'm just worried that the games are gonna get more demanding forcing me to either downscale or upgrade to SLI.
I think ya'll here can agree that the Steelseries Stratus XL for Android and PC is the master race of gaming controllers. Combines the best aspects of Xbox 360 and dualshock controllers. Has driver and calibration software in Windows. Works out of the box in Android, and FireTV.
Found a pair of 901 speakers sealed in plastic in our storage building. They have the eq box and seem to be in perfect condition.
Are these shit like the current Bose speakers or are they worth setting up? They even came with the manuals and all the advertising shit. Bose was certainly marketing the hell our their stuff even back then. There was an instruction manual and a whole different book detailing industry awards.
Describe pedestrian sound like you're talking to someone not wearing a fedora.
I mainly listen to music now on a pair of KRK Rokit 8s(pic related).
So I shouldn't bother hooking them up? Perhaps sell them?
Changes from 2.33 to 2.34:
The version information file (which the optional update check downloads to see if there exists a newer version) is now digitally signed (using RSA-4096 / SHA-512); furthermore, it is downloaded over HTTPS.
Added option 'Lock workspace when minimizing main window to tray'.
Added option 'Esc minimizes to tray instead of locking the workspace'.
Added Ctrl+Q shortcut for closing KeePass (as alternative to Alt+F4).
Added UIFlags bit for disabling the 'Check for Updates' menu item.
The installers (regular and MSI) now create an empty 'Plugins' folder in the application directory, and the portable package now also contains such a folder.
Plugins: added support for digitally signed version information files.
Plugins are now loaded only directly from the application directory and from any subdirectory of the 'Plugins' folder in the application directory.
Improved startup performance (by filtering plugin candidates).
When closing a database, KeePass now searches and deletes any temporary files that may have been created and forgotten by MSHTML when printing failed.
CHM help file: improved high DPI support.
Various code optimizations.
Minor other improvements.
Uefa and Microsoft are forcing users to use Microsft Edge in order to watch HQ live streams.
This makes upgrading to Windows10 a must for those who want to watch Euro2016 matches.
Just as planned.

Do motherboards have quartz crystals to keep track of time? Is there any other electronic method besides quartz?
>Do motherboards have quartz crystals to keep track of time?
Yes, they're usually the rounded metal rectangles you see attached to boards.
> Is there any other electronic method besides quartz?
Yes, but quartz works fine. Now that we have NTP they can be garbage, too. My system board will lose about 30 seconds an hour.
How pristine is your keyboard /g/?
Pic related, it's mine.
