Yeah they’re like 500 pages and DENSE. So I agree, if they tried to jam it all in, it would have been a big mistake.
I haven’t seen the new movie yet but I’m all for them taking their time. Looking forward to it. I think people were just shocked because it wasn’t marketed that way. But this is barely a story imo.
It did, thanks
Yeah I hadn’t considered that the games from 5 years ago aren’t as complex as today’s games.

So this might be a silly question, but something that I have wondered about whenever I see a review and the charts they release with their performance potential is that they’re usually targeting certain resolutions. Like this one is aiming at 1080p. My question is that cards in this price range have been able to game at these levels at 1080p for years now so what’s different about these. Like why would someone buy this over say the Nvidia 1060 from 2016? I don’t quite understand.
So why would someone buy a brand new card today with the performance of a 5 year old card? I think I just have a core misunderstanding here because I have to be missing something. It just seems like this entire industry is kinda broken with how they update things.

Meh, I think that’s another strawman. I can only speak anecdotally and I’m the worst example for this sort of thing because I’m so anal with all of my electronics, nothing breaks. But second hand reports? Basically everyone in my immediate circle of friends has earbuds with busted wires or has had to buy new wired headphones because the wires were busted.
At the end of the day though that means nothing without a scientific study, but point being, I really think people focusing on the headphone jack on this phone have misguided energy.

Who knows about the comparisons of this phone and an iphone but..
I LOVE the larger point you’re bringing up that, we all need to be shouting from the rooftops for these corporations to support their device for longer rather than selling us a new device every year. That’s the part that’s unequivocally not sustainable. With the hardware that is in today’s cell phones there is next to no reason every phone made can’t be supported for 10 years. Easy. Replace and recycle a battery every few years (covered by the manufacturer) and we’d all be better for it. But that ain’t gonna happen so it’s the stuff of utopias unfortunately.

I also know that this is the knee jerk tech media take, but isn’t there data to suggest that people don’t just wildy lose and replace bluetooth headsets like the internet says they do? I thought there was a study a year or two back that basically said that was essentially a non factor.
I’d suspect it’s probably a net wash when all is said and done when comparing sustainability of wired sets vs unwired sets and all that comes with that.

I think it’s three fold. Supply chains, designed obsolescence, and Fairphone. When we have replacement cycles of multiple times a year for almost all major electronics, this is where we were always heading. It’s gross.
Kudos to Fairphone for trying to break the cycle.
Just checked and I’ve got 11GB free.
Yeah I definitely agree, that they should offer more and do away with the emmc entirely. It’s garbage, objectively. Just wanted to let folks know that window’s updates won’t be what kills your Go, it’s that speed (or lack of) that’ll kill it

I’d assume this is just a supply and demand thing. They don’t sell a ton of surface products (compared to say a macbook for example) so they’ve gotta still make their money. I think that in turn means higher costs for consumers unfortunately.
I think if they sold these at 20% less across the board, they’d just be losing their ass which they aren’t willing to do.

It’s not just you, they are fine. There’s still bezel brigade warriors out there fighting the good fight I guess.
