What benefits do smartwatches have?
Is it better to have a notification checker on your wrist? or is pulling out your phone out your pocket just as effective?
I have a Huawei Watch 2
>Is it better to have a notification checker on your wrist?
Yes, as someone who communicates a lot, it's really helpful. I also found myself using it quite often to answer quickly.
>is pulling out your phone out your pocket just as effective?
yes, but it can be incovenient
My suggestion: get a cheap-ass fitness tracker (less than 20$) that can show notifications. If you find it usefull, get a full smartwatch.
I did that.
>listening to lossy music
It's like you want to be a normalfag.
wavpack is my preferred option for archiving recordings i've made, or any albums i hold dear to my heart (the hybrid mode with correction files is amazing). music that is not dear to me, can be lossy as long as it sounds good, so the rest of my collection is mostly in ogg at 224kbps and i'm slowly transitioning to opus.
Should I buy the S6 active?
>inb4 buy a chinkphone lel
Chinkphones have shitty cameras. I know that it only has 32gb of storage but I can always keep dumping all photos and shit on my pc. So should I buy it or is there a better alternative at that price?
Are toroidal transformers a meme?
Toroidals are physically smaller and have lower heat loses for the same power rating as conventional EI cores. This can be proven in first year college physics course. What exactly are you asking?
>run Windows 10
>see System(PID 0) is connected to 10 different servers
>explorer.exe is connected to a server in Virginia
>svchost.exe is always connected to and sending and receiving to 4-8 different servers.
>very often random CPU, disk, and network activity, using up my computer resources
>run a netstat:
>see 10-15 connections to different servers
>lots of ports open
How did it get like this, /g/?

I also wanted to know.
what are some videos to watch while I'm eating?
>muh headphone jack
Daily reminder that if you weren't poor you wouldn't need a headphone jack. I have a pair of Bose Quietcomfort 35 headphones and have no need for an ugly obsolete headphone jack.
Apple is superior.
Is MDs worth getting into? I hear the quality is better than vinyls.
>wanting something that requires special software JUST to transfer files to it (which also have to be converted before transferring)
I had it. The quality was good, but it was too fucking annoying to use.
So I tried to do a homemade FOSS waifu using metal and glass as support and now I have 7 stitches on my dick
How long will take sexbots to become a thing?
Why is intel spending billions on 2% perfomance increases when they can fucking control the world with botnet whores?

If you aren't using org-mode in any capacity, you really should give it a try!
I've recently gotten into using it. I'm using a bare minimum subset of its features and still notice a huge boost in productivity even over other notetaking applications.
Want to try org mode but you're a vi/vim guy? Give spacemacs a try. I've never used emacs in my life outside of the most basic commands and can comfortably operate it (including org mode) using vi/vim bindings.

What is his endgame?
Why use Bash when Python exists?
>inb4 muh UNIX philosophy
You get a large, well documented standard library to use for your scripts. And with Python, you're forced to have good coding practices (e.g. for readability).
Why would I use python?
>have to get a shell AND a python interpreter
>have to learn another language
>can directly type smaller scripts into the shell without even needing a file
>can apply existing knowledge of shell utilities to script files
>can easily use any utility I'd use in the shell in a script
2017 is a great year.
