Verizon's having major connection issues today.
Wireless or Fios?

Fios had some major issues earlier (9'ish) but it has since stabilized.

The LG Classic with Tracfone's new yearly plan of $199 (around $17/month) unlimited talk and text is a great price if you're going to use the phone on a regular basis.

Or the NET10 yearly plan for half the price:

Stahhhhpp it! No one can possibly steal his ideas, he’s a genius with decades of experience and hundreds of thousands of happy customers. Nobody could ever figure it out anyway.
You can ridicule him for things that are ridicule-worthy (which I'm not saying there isn't any), but it's non-sense to expect him to answer on questions that he thinks could help someone compete with him.

So you're selling a device and not giving out the device firmware details.
Something is strange...
What's so strange? If he thinks holding back this info will prevent others doing what he's doing (hence anyone that will want/need such device will buy it from him) why would he give you the info?!

Vs

Any thoughts?
My go would be option 1
+1

(512 GB storage is nice, but I do not think worth the Intel-premium for what's basically the exact same product otherwise.)

What does Google have to do with Mozilla/FireFox?
Mozilla's MDN Web Docs doesn't have anything specific with Firefox. The page he linked describes the Barcode Detection API that can be used by browsers. And as you can see in the Browser compatibility section only Chrome/Chromium currently support it.

sorry @Yisroel Tech , here is a newer RFB machine for $300l

please let me know what you think...

Dell Latitude 5480 14" Dual i5-7300U 2.60GHz 256GB SSD 16GB RAM Windows 10 Pro

yes its 3 years old but i highly doubt most of the users would know the difference and for $300 instead of close to $540 for a new one i am thinking it might be worth a shot..

thanks again.
It's 4 years, and I disagree that there won't be a noticeable difference.

But it might indeed be worth a shot.

I hear you about the refurb, these guys recently bought i5-6200 laptops with only 4gb ram and 500gb HDD.   

my thinking was even though the processor is older(staples),    the SSD and extra ram can make up for it... ?? (beside the point that the RAM is also probably slower type...)
It cannot "make up for it", because whatever is slow will be a bottleneck for the others.

The idea is that there might be better places to save on.

i also am thinking about a refurb machine since the laptops are usually for occasional use when an employee isnt in the office.

i spotted this yesterday for $309 and now its OOS .  :(

Good that it is! The issue with refurbs in the computer space is just that their specs are usually very outdated.

A 5th gen i5 (in the Staples one you mentioned) is indefinitely worse than an i5 nowadays. It's probably worse than a current gen low powered Core M!

No, don't forget Telegram has multi device support, so it's considered like another device.
Right, but - to his question - since this interacts with your account it can (let's say it would want as part of the filtering) mess with your things.

Will trying out these apps mess up my primary telegram installation?
No (as far as I tried.)
