Tech Talk / Re: Which Camera Should I Get? Master Thread
« on: Today at 02:52:46 PM »
Looking for some backup batteries/charger for my A6000. I see a bunch of generics on Amazon, but maybe one of the pros here can direct me to a quality choice?
No camera pro, and no personal experience, but RAVPower is a "known" brand for battery products: https://www.amazon.com/NP-FW50-RAVPower-Batteries-Charger-Accessories/dp/B01JG54F3C

Meaning will it stop the camera / the video function?

  Just curious when one blocks the actual internet entirely any chance the hotspot on such a small phone would work?
It does not stop anyting about the camera and video.

Hotspot can technically work with "the internet" (which means basically browsing and web connectivity), though not sure if they allow it to remain open.

Seems like you're a bit knowledgeable in this area, if one goes ahead and put the filter to block the internet on that phone does everything else work properly?
 
You should be more detailed what you include in "everything else". But anything not related at all to internet works same as without the block.

Could someone please explain to me the problem with texting. Why is it unacceptable?
Why do you think it's UNACCEPTABLE? It's mostly a גדר some people take in themselves to be farther from technological things.

(There is however an issue some point out that in text it's much less shameful to communicate inappropriately than there is over the phone.)

Any dumb phones out there that could still connect to Google, specifically to download (and hopefully sync) my contacts? Preferably with Verizon.
No.

I don't know how measurements work when buying screens but the dimensions of my computer desk is 19 -1/2 by 19 in tall.

  Assuming that means the most I can fit would be a 19 inch screen or when measuring diagonally you can put a bigger screen?
The 22" in the link above measures:
Quote
With Stand (Inches) 19.56” x 14.44” x 6.57”.
Without stand (inch, W x H x D) 19.56” x 11.49” x 1.22”.

20" measures:
Quote
With Stand (Inches)- 18.01 x 7.02 x13.57
Without Stand (inches)- 18.01 x 1.32 x 10.43

Because my computer desk only fits a 19 to 22 inch screen.
  I can get the exact measurements and post back here in a couple minutes.
Take something like this Sceptre monitor, has built-in speakers.

If you can go with the 22" I'd root for it, but they have a 20" as well.

(For the built-in speaker to work you'll probably need to connect the computer to the monitor with the HDMI and not the VGA (does the computer have HDMI output?)

What do you guys recommend for a 19inch monitor with an attachable speaker or built-in speaker screen?

 Or do most new screens come without a speaker? And I'll need to attach a speaker separately?
What is the reason you're looking specifically for a 19 inch?

I was under the impression that certain pictures are never allowed.
It's not on a picture and picture basis, it's a site to site basis.

(Of course if you're under a specific community it'll depend on their guidelines if you can unblock the skin color filter on that site.)

I'd like to ask a sincere question. If it's deemed inappropriate, I ask one of the moderators to delete it.

What does a woman shopping (for specific items) do with these filters or is she forced to go to a store?
What is the issue?

Most product pictures are quite recognizable with the skin blocked, but if needed you can unblock a site completely.

Funny thing is, on dell they market it together with RAM "24GB Memory: 8GB DRAM + 16GB Intel® Optane™ Memory"

Whereas on HP they bundle it with storage "256 GB Intel® SSD + 16 GB Intel® Optane™ memory"

Maybe they themselves don't know.
Correct.

Optane is "very fast" memory, which is technically what RAM is as well... but compared to RAM it is "MUCH slower"... so it is somewhere in the middle...

I'd side with HP on this because I think that the way the OS handles it is an improvement (cache) to the storage drive. And Dell is just trying to fool you in with marketing talk...

Optane is a new'ish thing so most 'knowers' don't have much real concrete data and experience. And TBH it probably depends a lot on the specific situation (the type of workload etc.)

Personally - my educated guess - I think that Optane isn't to be counted as RAM, in no way.

Need a desktop ASAP

-i5

looking to pay $500, is that hard to find?
Yes, it is cheaper than normal deal pricing, you'll need a מציאה.
