What's the best tech blog?
Something that gives news, information on new tech, benchmarks, etc?
Hey /g/uys. I am planning on selling my trusty asus g75vw and upgrading to something a bit more portable. I’ll be able to sell the laptop for around 550. I want to upgrade to something more portable, but more/equally powerful than my asus. I don’t mind getting a used laptop. What can I get in the 5-800 price range? Thanks.
Thanks for starting this thread OP.
What should I be searching for if I want a laptop with good speakers? My 'HP Beats By Dre." laptop is getting on in years and before you say >Beats I got it because it was cheap and discovered that I never had to even consider getting external speakers for it.
I tried 'subwoofer' but there are only like 2 of them.
What is the best way to take snapshots on Windows and why is it the snipping tool?
Its only flaw is that it doesn't allow you to paste the picture into file explorer. Otherwise it is perfect.

I need a cheap-ish tablet with a pen to take notes. Would prefer to avoid Apple and Intel. Any suggestions?
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) second hand
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S-pen (US and some Asian regions only)
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (second hand)
Huawei Mediapad M2
Asus Zenpad S 8.0 (make sure to get the 4GB version with stylus compatibility, not the cheaper 2GB version)
Even the good old Shield K1 tablet has excellent stylus support although these are rapidly becoming collectors items selling 2nd hand for more than the original retail price.
I have a particular interest in the subject as I desperately need an "electronic notepad" for jotting notes at work. Of all the devices listed above the Galaxy Note 8.0 was the perfect size and best at speedy handwritten noted taking, but these are also now becoming collectors items & the tablet itself is forever stuck on Android 4.4
If you are rich, the Galaxy Tab S3 has fantastic stylus support. The Lenovo Yogabook supports stylus too, but I haven't tried it.
What did Windows 10 mean by this?

Hello, le""literal n00b:""" here
So, I've heard about bitcoins and cryptocurrency some years ago and was really interested in the "mining" process but never really got to study it.
So now I got me lurking about the thing and was astonishied when I found out the bitcoin is like 3k$ no and there are hardwares worth thousands of dollars for mining.
Can someone give me an insight on cryptocurrency or at least a link where it is nicely explained? All I found was sites offering me cloud mining wich is clearly some sort of scam.
Mining is just a euphemism for blockchain accounting. Miners check the integrity of every transaction and get a miner fee out of that transaction paid out in a certain amount of coins for a certain amount of hashes called a block.
Buttcoins require powerful CPUs, usually where the whole architecture is centered around mining such as ASICs.
Ethereum is strictly GPU based and can be mined from your average gaming PC (albeit only a very small amount). Thats why some people build special 'rigs' with a ton of GPUs, but shitty CPUs and small amounts of ram.
There are also two types of mining "algorithms". PoW and PoS. Proof of work and Proof of Stake, respectively. In a nutshell Proof-of-Work is more beneficial to miners & PoS requires some sort of collateral (although I'm not that sure exactly how it works)
If you're looking at this as a serious living, I'd advise against that. First off the competition is gnarly, with giant warehouses in china dedicated to nothing but mining cryptos. Secondly its a much bigger time sink then people think initially. With setup, modding, maintenance, and upgrades. Thirdly Crypos are very volatile and can have huge monetary swings, making less to even unprofitable for some of the low level miners.
If you want to do it as a hobby and don't really care if you see an ROI or if you have a gaming rig that you want to set-up to mine in its downtime then you can try it out, its not that difficult unless you're a complete rube.
Here are some websites to get you started:
and you can always try reddit. But everyone on their will discourage you.

You obviously don't do work on your Arch machine. It's probably a fresh install that you immediately riced (poorly) and came here.
I bet you couldn't even install Gentoo or *BSD.
Closed source for profit software is terrible. Corporations add "features" (bloat) to motivate users to keep using their shit software. This creates more bugs and spaghetti code, some of which never get solved. Each progressive upgrade makes the software more shitty. Examples of this are: windows 10, youtube, every android google app, tinder, facebook, etc... This problem extends to FOSS developed by for-profit cormporations, like red hat infecting gnu/linux with systemd.
Open source for free software is terrible.
Neets add "features" (bloat) to expand the scope of their shit software. This creates more bugs and terrible ux, all of which never get solved. Each progressive upgrade makes the software more unusable. Examples of this are: every open source binary
This problem extends to proprietary blobs developed for Linux, like nvidias drivers, no matter how good they are, the system is still to disjointed for anyone to do real work.
I really hate C code monkeys so god damn much.
so not only cpu housefires
not only mobile housefires
now intel is going to created automotive housefires!
we are doomed
no they just are the snarted people on the internet. unlike intel cucks. did you know chad thunder cock uses Ryzen CPUs
