Why is the Kilobyte sometimes defined as 1000 Bytes when it has always been 1024 Bytes? When did this begin? I assume the Kilobyte (1000 Bytes) was invented by storage manufacturers to sell less storage, if so, I want to find who's responsible.

It's because 1024 was too difficult for stupid faggots to work out in their heads.

Welcome to Libreboot General Thread!
Beginners feel free to ask questions!

https://libreboot.org/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libreboot

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
That's a red herring and has no bearing on the project
The dispute with GNU was resolved several months ago

>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 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 a desktop system (see the wiki page)

a new hobby of mine is to make google searches for random things, and seeing how many ads are clicked by adnauseum . Specifically on google search. So far, the google search yielding the highest amount of ads is


"curtains"

It seems like "normie" item searches are the ones with the most ads . Cutlery , Mattress , Ovens , etc..

i assume that people searching for these items might be less tech savvy and more likely to click an ad.
>>
Google now shuts down websites that don't align with their social viewpoints. So something which threatens their profits like adnauseum is going to be fucked over hard.
>>
>>62290414
>>62290376
You'll get the most ads for items that women would search for, and especially items that really stupid women would search for.

Women drive the vast majority of consumer spending. Every advertisement is marketed foremost to women for this reason.

Google just unlisted Rogan's podcast on James Damore, and scrubbed their search results. This is just mere hours after the livestream finished.

They fired the guy, and are now censoring what he has to say. What do they have to hide? This is not politics, it's clearly technology related given how big of an influence Google has on the web and the average consumer.

Stallman = 0?

I need a thin form factor laptop with good specs and I was looking at getting a MBP but then I saw this thing and was half considering it. I wouldn't really be doing any gaming except for FF14 mostly videos, and programming while I'm out to sea.

My only problems is alot of people have said they need to undervolt the CPU for good temps and the retarded placement of the keyboard.

Anyone have one of these and can comment on it?


Not really interested in the XPS 15, the X1 carbon or the thinkpad.

Why don't you want any of those / what is your budget?

By the way the majority of laptops you will want (thin) are going to undervolt the CPU.

Anyway just go to amazon and limit by core i processors, the size you want, and then sort by highest price. Those will probably be thinnest. There's a lot of asus / acer shit that is thin if you, for whatever reason, dont want xps / carbon.

>>62289588
I don't like the look of those other two, my budget is $3500. I know the CPU will be undervolted if it gets to a certain temp but with the ROG people are actually having to change the clock speed which I don't/shouldn't have to do.

I looked at the razor and while it's nice I don't fully trust razor.

More than likely just end up getting a full spec 15in MBP.

My last one died and I'm stuck with a horrible old Sony that is giving me aids.

I want something with
>decent specs
>good build quality
>long battery life (>3Ah)
>small dimensions: shorter than 15cm=5.9in, and slimmer than 7cm=2.9in
A physical keyboard and stock Android 7 or higher would be nice, too.
Price doesn't matter too much.

Right now I am looking at the Blackberry KeyOne, the Google Pixel and the Oneplus 5. Also the Moto G5 for a bang4buck option.

Gimme advice, suggestions, alternatives, warnings, etc

I trust you, /g/!

If you get a Pixel, wait until the new one is out, should lower the price a bit. I've had really good experiences with Xiaomi lately, can recommend the Mi 5S and Mi 6 if you dont live in the US.

Otherwise your choices are solid I guess. You could also look at Nokia.
