    Will you be getting the new iPhone Models?

    Probably not. I'm really not a huge fan of Apple devices as a whole (Except the 2017+ Macbook Pro and iPads). Android phones are my shit, so if anything, that Librem phone is what I'm after. Or, if anything, a cheap Chinese android phone like the new Xiaomi. But, I am considering getting a new iPad. My Mini 2 is probably going to lose support soon, it's a few years old, and Apple stopped selling the Mini 3, so this one is probably next in line. The Mini was the perfect size factor for me, so maybe I'll get the 4 when 5 gets released. But as far as phones go, nah, cost-efficiency isn't that great.
  3. Simply put: are you getting the new iPhone? Why or why not? I personally am extremely excited to get the new iPhone. I am hoping for a iPhone X Plus. What are you expecting on the new models?

    Net Neutrality - Status

    Something I've noticed is the push for VPN's has become so much stronger. It seems that VPN companies are providing users a friendly interface to integrate a VPN. Personally, I think VPN's are the first step to getting consumers aware of privacy and the rights they should have.

    Net Neutrality - Status

    I'm looking from a more economic standpoint, because if people really want their net neutrality, they can protect it themselves without needing laws to do it for them. VPNs, VPSes, I2P and other meshnet protocols exist to evade censorship and stop the throttling of certain services, if the need arises. People just don't seem to know about it, that's all. Since I'm not American, take my opinions with a grain of salt. I'm Canadian, so a bit further North, but net neutrality wasn't protected in the U.S until very recently. With the threat of it being taken away, people are scared but don't seem to remember what it was like in the past. ISPs will not simply up the price on a certain service, like people say they will. It's a simple fact of economics. You know why? Because another competitor can just say "Hey, I won't throttle your Netflix, instead, pay a 3$ premium on your internet plan (while no plans have any form of throttling)' and after only an hour, the ISP that throttles will lose about 80% of its client-base, even if their base price is that three dollars cheaper. Call up your ISP, you can have fun with this one. Tell them you're going to cancel because there is a better plan in your area, or someone set up their own infrastructure and offers a better pricing for the service. Watch as your ISP shakes in rage and offers you a 20% discount on your plan. If they don't, just hang up, you don't need to cancel. You won't even need to have to specify any details about the plan in question, assuming it exists, but this just proves that net neutrality doesn't really have any effect on whatever premium your ISP is giving you. If people were genuinely concerned about the well-being of their internet beloved, they would look into stuff like I2P or Zeronet. The fact of the matter is, they just don't. They can cry all they want, but if you tell them about alternatives to protect their own neutrality, or link them a guide to create a neighborhood meshnet that everyone can use, they'll throw back some snarky comment like 'haha, i'm not a nerd.' They won't even take a minute to read through what it entails, no matter how simple it may be.
  20. I feel about that. But these lackluster changes are happening on both sides, AMD finally decided to step it up and make their performance a bit better, but we still rarely see a 4.0GHz default CPU or higher. Like, I know there are a few 4.2 or slightly above, but we've been at this for years now, why won't it get any better? We're still using x86, just as we did for decades, nothing is really new in that world, aside from ARM changes and the development of RISC-V, which doesn't look like it'll have a wide adoption anytime soon. If anything, I think Nvidia is actually innovating a lot more than any other big tech company, really. They're coming up with all kinds of stuff to actually start bringing new technology to the table. SDKs, new hardware, development APIs, etc. are all being built for regular consumers to get them on board if they have a serious project in mind. Not exactly something to buy just to tinker with, the Jetson products have price tags of a few hundred, but if by hell they don't have power... I actually stayed at an Airbnb while traveling around Japan, and my host worked at Nvidia, so we hit it off immediately and talked all night about all kinds of technology like this. I think if anything, they're going to be leading the next technological revolution, if you will.

    Net Neutrality - Status

    As the process continues for Net Neutrality, I am pleased to say that we have the Senate has voted in favor of restoring net neutrality. While we still have a long way to go, this is a HUGE stepping stone for us. If you are located in the US, I encourage you to continue to speak your freedoms and fight for net neutrality. How do you think the outcome will be for net neutrality?
  22. Ya know, I was talking to my dad about how I felt about AMD today and I personally think that AMD is the innovator at this time and I think will overtake Intel at the rate we are seeing Intel develop. We are seeing some pretty lackluster changes from year-to-year.
