Need a recommendation
I just got done paying off my galaxy s6 active and it aged like actual dogshit (despite the name, if you are actually active the built in case will eventually peel off and you will break the screen a few times).
I'm on AT&T in the US and just want something that is reasonably priced has a good camera and decent processing power that AT&T offers.
I've heard that LGs have pretty good cameras, are HTCs any good?

Is there any terminal program that can show live cryptocurrency charts?

But why? You can't even display box plots accurately enough in a cli environment.
A cli script for tracking the worth of your portfolio is the only thing I can imagine the cli being usefull for with trading.

x264 lead developer and turboweeb Jason shows how millions of dollars won't help you pass.
He singlehandedly created and advanced the field of video compression by lightyears. Then he became a she and abandoned the entire field of video compression and open source. She now works for Apple, the most restrictive company in terms of developer freedom, known to treat their workers like slaves. She's getting millions out of x264 royalties and doesn't even have to work yet does. She now does educational cosplay (see @FioraAeterna), showing further that different clothes won't help you pass.

Here's she giving a speech last year:

This convinces me that hormones make you a worse developer and a worse human being. I think no one should undergo HRT since soon in the future our brains can be converted to computer chips so we can change bodies and abolish the meaning of gender.

She abandoned all links with his former self quite badly. The first thing she did after she transitioned and got a new name was a couple of patches for Dolphin. In an interview for this work she said that this was her first time contributing to an open source project[1]. Which is retarded considering that she was still contributing to x264 under her new name and also she rewrote the entire git history for the x264 project (which is a taboo that no serious project will EVER do, since it makes everyone have to redownload and rebase all their work). Putting the needs of someone who can't live with their past in front of the project's future and development is a very bad sign and an abuse of power.

Providing that you're using the 3.5mm output from the tablet with the amplifier/tuner functioning as a hub for your speakers, the tablet's dac (digital to audio) converter will be responsible for the overall audio quality.
>>
If your tablet has a really shitty amp and really shitty Dac, the you'll probably notice. iPad is probably the only tablet that with an adapter you can have true unamplified line out.

No, Android tablets are only slightly better than Apple ones. Get a surface 3 tablet pc instead. You can run android apps through bluestacks on it for free.

proprietary garbage

Could you just procedurally generate a massive reference file of every possible combination of 1s and 0s, then use that to "compress" data by referencing the reference file? Then all you could have to store is the algorithm to generate the reference file and the "compressed data" that references it.
8 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
such a reference file would be infinite in size since there is no end to the possible combinations of 1's and 0's.
>>
>>62147633
The data referencing the file would be about as big as the data you are referencing. So you don't gain anything. It is basically another form of PiFS.

>>62147647
What if you limit it to n byte blocks? There aren't an infinite amount of those, even if you make n exceedingly large

Bought Dell Xps 15 from a seller on Amazon, it was in 'Used - like new' condition, and had its hdd replaced with 500 ssd, all for a pretty good price.

However, when it arrived yesterday, I noticed there's a pretty clear difference between left and right sides of screen when white or something bright is being displayed.

Left side has reddish hue and right side has a greenish hue. It's not really noticeable when watching something non-bright. I asked other people and they could all clearly see it.

I decided I want to return it. What are my options? This was my first major Amazon purchase, I don't know how returns work. Should I contact the seller first? Or the Amazon customer service?

Probably contact the seller first.

Did the seller talk about the screen issue in the description, or did he only talk about the SSD?
>>
>>62147385
I've had horrible luck with uneven tints on all kinds of laptop displays and desktop displays. It's my belief that it's quite a common issue but one of those things that most people don't notice or aren't bothered by. Clearly, you're one of those people like me who sees it and is driven insane by it.

It's not really something you'd notice when watching media or gaming, but with internet browsing or documents which usually have white or other light solid-color backgrounds, it's extremely obvious and bothersome.

As for the return, look at your order history in your account and see if it has a return option somewhere. I know it's easy when an item is actually sold by Amazon, but it might be more of a hassle with a third-party seller. I honestly think there's a good chance that the seller didn't even see the problem with the display, but to anyone who's not blind, it IS defective and you have every right to claim it as such.
>>
>>62147483
He only talked about the SSD (which should've been 512, not 500, but not really an issue), didn't mention screen.

I read some info on Amazon and they say that if item is eligible for Amazon Prime (mine was), even if its sold by third party I should talk with Amazon customer service and not with the seller.

Still I feel like it would be fair to contact seller first. What do you think?
