Yeah well I'd like to see those chain-smoking, whiskey drinking 1950's manly men compile a Linux kernel or debug shell scripts.

The goal is to replace a 7 year old PC and 2012 MacBook Air so it’s a worthy upgrade with 15% friends and family discount. Appreciate your advice, you’ve saved me another $450 by stepping back to an i7. Cheers.

Yeah I replaced a 2012 mbp also with a 2018. Decided to stay with the Core i7, and instead bumped the RAM to 32gb and the SSD to 1TB. It’s so much nicer than my old MBP 👍

How does Google get in trouble for this yet IOS is completely locked down? Is Apple getting a $20b fine?

see more

Because Apple makes the hardware and software. There are no 3rd parties making their own iOS phones. Google got in trouble because they are forcing 3rd party manufacturers to include Google’s apps.

How about the other manufacturers just make their own OS then? The regulators are going after the monopolies the wrong way. Apple specifically designs its products with proprietary software and hardware which is 1000x worse than Google. The fact Google is being punished for being more open than Apple is ridiculous.

They aren’t getting in trouble for being more open, and a manufacturer can be as closed and proprietary as they want. That’s not the issue here at all.

What Google is getting in trouble for is abusing its market position in one area to increase its other apps usage.

That’s illegal. Google is the one choosing to give away the OS to other manufacturers, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have to comply with the law just because the OS is free.

It’s essentially the same thing Microsoft got in trouble for—and rightly so—back in the 90s.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Microsoft_Corp.

You can’t leverage like a 90% or whatever worldwide market share and then force someone to use your completely unrelated apps as an entry price. Like it or not, that’s the law. It’s “gee you can either include our apps or just die as a company” while a guy stands behind Google giving you the evil stare while holding a blood stained baseball bat.

Quantity over quality

I wouldn’t say 50Hz PAL slowdown is ‘quality’ ;-)

That's a needed 30-40$ extra on top of a 1000$ phone. No thanks.

My general rule is: don't drop electronics. 7 years, same Galaxy S2. No screen protector/case.

Galaxy S2? Christ I don’t want to know how malware infested that phone has to be at this point.

I don't get malware. Why would I do that. I don't download rando files...

But I'ma guess all your apple products are completely virus-free because it is literally impossible to get a virus XD

It’s not a question of ‘rando files’, a Galaxy S2–assuming you’re not rooting and using custom ROMs—is going to be stuck on a quite old version of Android (4.1.2 Jelly Bean) and there are a multitude of known remote exploits for it. You don’t have to ‘do’ anything other than be connected to the internet.

I’m not saying you’re hosed for using Android; I’m saying you’re probably hosed for using such an old version of it. It’s the equivalent of using a Windows XP machine online.

See here for just some of the known security issues with 4.1.2:
