I'm looking for a laptop with a good 1080p IPS screen and maybe a backlit keyboard.
What should I do /g/?

Did you even read the article? The nvidrone is the murderer.

Verdict: Total trash, do not buy for any reason
How come you can get a 6 Core 12 thread Xeon for like 15-20 USD/EUR on Ebay but even the most basic 1366 socket board will set you back ~$100€?
Why are those relatively powerful CPUs so cheap?
No, I'm not talking about 'making' a PC by screwing in a mobo and slotting in a GPU, but actually making a computer the way enthusiasts had to do for most of the 70s.
Searching online I can find tons of modern plans for simple Z80 computers, but I would like to use 70s era plans for this, like those that would have been published in a magazine or club newsletter. I'd also like to use as many 70s era parts and materials as possible, and I'm having a harder time figuring out what kind of keyboard and monitor would be appropriate.
>but actually making a computer the way enthusiasts had to do for most of the 70s.
They where usually kits.
You can still buy kits to make Z80 based computers, etc.
Most enthusiasts bought actual minicomputers, like Altair, that's why they where enthusiasts, nerds bought kits.
>buy refurbished Elitebook
>order a new battery along with it
>turns out the original battery still has about 5-6 hours of life left
So what now? Can I just keep the battery until the original one dies? Or is it better if I just swap them anyway?
You can store the weaker battery at 40-50~% charge in a cool, dry place for long periods of time.
Keep it as a backup, don't throw it away or anything on principle. Make sure to charge it back up every few months or so.
New iPhone announce tomorrow.
Could anyone explain how do usb c cables vary and what kinds of cables are there, please?
I got a chinese usb c charged 2 in 1 laptop, but posts on what chargers should I use are at least inconsistent. The only rule that I noticed that it's compatible with cables that have usb c on both sides. Would a 9$ 12-9v 1.5a nintendo charger be enough or do I need more expensive apple compatible charger? Stock charger is 12v 2a
After having a smart phone for a good while, I think I've come the conclusion that I Android AND iOS are both complete shit. I'm ready to make the switch. Is there any thing to look for in a dumb phone?
I tried this.
It is retarded.
Still having signal/telegram to be in contact with important persons is nice.
also for train times n shit.
Just get a new number, tell nobody and just hand it to important people. This did the trick for me.
Also do not install any unnessesary bloat
I'm going to do a project in digital forensics.The task is pretty flexible.
I was thinking about dumping some USB sticks with a form of "malware".
However, the "malware" must not do anything else than send system information about the target PC, and maybe spread? The idea is to track the amount of "infections" and see the different system info for the different types of victims, and get an idea how fast a malware could potentially spread.
The problem is that using an actual malware is unethical and would not be approved.
However, is there any form of "ethical" trojans meant for testing? Which only sends system information, and doesn't give access to files or further surveillance capabilities?
As long as it's an unintended installation without the agreement of the user it will be considered malware. Second of all, sending pc specs is considered as personal information. The only "ethical" malware I could think of is an installshield setup.exe then it just sends a "test" string through tcp. Spreading is also malware since unintended install will occur.
tl;dr, to make an "ethical" malware you just need to be a big company like M$:
>unintended install of w10
>sends screenshots of your desktop every minute
>shares p2p updates with nearby pc's (here's your spreading technique)
>records apps opened and closed
>sends your personal data to m$
>makes sure it's difficult to change OS by creating a shitty safeboot feature
looks like a RAT, to me, the best RAT ever invented because the malware IS your OS.
