Man, FireFox is getting incredible unstable these days (I'm on latest version 55.0.3)

It's crashing seemingly randomly a couple of times per day with only a couple of tabs open

Chrome has never crashed, only once in a while a specific tab crashes but it doesn't suicide bomb the other tabs like Mozilla does

Apparently apple is pretending that USB-C doesn't exist.

It does. I don't really know what the deal is. I guess they like giving their customers antiquated hardware?

Pajeet has never been able to afford iPhone, which is why Apple ignored his country until just last year

>>62395960
Why Apple insist on the Indian market tho? What is their evolution especially considering their prices ? Because technologies /AR & AI are going to be huge in the future so phones will become more and more expensive. Why Apple is promoting their phones like if everyone could afford them whereas in reality they are making it unaffordable more and more years after years ?

In a year or less, we’ll see phones with specs that are on par/better than the iPhone X.

Yes. Processor probably a month before next iphone. Camera a month after this one is released. We still need 3dtouch and I have no idea why android phones hadn't done it.

Logic Pro is just GarageBand for autists

nigga my phone is 1080p and that's way more than what you need for a fucking phone

anything higher would be a waste of processing power and battery life, you literally can't even see the pixels so why go higher

Does anyone here use left handed mouses? Im really struggling to find anything decent. I just want a wireless mouse for some home browsing, that isnt total fucking shit.

Welcome to /lgbt/ Libreboot is the Greatest BIOS Thread!
Beginners feel free to ask questions!

More info about the project:
https://libreboot.org/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libreboot
https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreboot

Helpful resources:
Flashing the X60 internally (easy)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K5jo9gk9LQ

Flashing the X200/T400 externally (advanced)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyxgYnOcsTw

So /g/ why haven't you installed the only BIOS that actually respects your freedom, privacy, and human rights by using no proprietary firmware and disables the Intel (NSA backdoor) ME?

>inb4 the dev is a tranny and drama queen
That's a red herring and has no bearing on the project
The dispute with GNU was resolved several months ago
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQCwYAhZnQg

>inb4 no compatible system
You can literally get a ThinkPad X200 for $50 on ebay

>inb4 no beaglebone/pi for external flashing
You can get an X60 for internal flashing or use a Libreboot flashing service (about $50) on ebay for X200/T400

>inb4 that hardware is ancient
An X200 will pretty much do anything besides "muh gaymin" plus there are some descent mobo's that support Libreboot for an Intel or AMD desktop system (see below)

Compatible Laptops/Boards:
Server boards: Asus KFSN4-DRE and Asus KGPE-D16
Desktop boards: Asus KCMA-D8, Intel D510MO, Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L, and Apple iMac 5,2
Laptops: Asus Chromebook C201, Lenovo ThinkPad X60/X60s, Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet, Lenovo ThinkPad T60 (some exceptions), Lenovo ThinkPad X200, Lenovo ThinkPad R400, Lenovo ThinkPad T400, Lenovo ThinkPad T500, Apple MacBook 1.1, and Apple MacBook 2.1

You know how the FBI wants to hack your phone or force you to unlock it so they can botnet your ass? You know how forcing you to give your passcode to them is tricky, legally speaking?

Now it's easier than ever for them to access your phone!

>Be in FBI/CIA custody
>They take your iPhone X™
>Shove it in front of your face
>Now they have all your data
See? iPhone X™ makes everything easier than it has ever been!

>implying there isn't a more convenient backdoor

Correct, I do think there's some sort of SOS feature, where you just click the power button a few times or something and it will require passcode to unlock, much like the fingerprint?

You mean embedded devices? Like your Android phones?
