This didn't give me a hint of submechanophobia (the water is too clear and the device too small and clean), but it's still a pretty cool video so I upvoted anyway. Thanks for posting!

The media isn't great but instead youre gonna go with... Facebook videos?? 😑

But yeah I'm sure this Facebook shill company gives a totally expert objective analysis on the economics of socialism 🙄 lol they don't even try to do that it's literally just a bunch of fun fact propaganda bs stats

as a bonus the whole video is kind of a racist slap in the face to Venezuelans making them a scapegoat for statistical perpoises

This phone is the same price as the note 8 when it came out.. Maybe a dollar or two more.

Looks like the 8 started at 930 which admittedly is more than I originally thought, but it's still, I just don't love seeing these prices creep up.

I remember when candy bars were just $0.50

hey, if you're cool with the price going up, then fine. Other companies have been able to offer devices at the same price year after year while increasing features and technology. Apple did ipods at 299 for multiple consecutive years. Samsung could do it if they wanted without hemmoraging money.

Manufacturer defects should always be covered, Whether under warranty or not.

see more

But I mean, that's what a warranty IS. A protection for manufacturing defects over a certain time period.

6 points · 4 hours ago · edited 4 hours ago

I mean on widespread manufacturer defects. A warranty is for when (for example) if your nand flash dies (without being subjected to physical abuse), you get a replacement. However, if all models have a defect (for example the butterfly keyboard in the MBP), they'll replace it with the same keyboard, which will eventually fail, so that should be replaced when it fails again, whether under warranty or not; because they didn't technically solve the issue; they replaced a faulty unit by a soon to be faulty one.

Ah, yeah I'm with ya on that one.

My mom used to always say to do what you love and the money will follow. Luckily I settled on engineering because I saw how much graphic designers make. lol

My friends who are graphic designers do really well, but we're in New York where there are tons of advertising agencies and demand for people who can design a great website. And it wasn't very long ago that photographers I knew were commanding $20K/day. Assistants and techs were paid handsomely, too.

Yeah, I don't know if things have changed or what... I thought the salary was like 20-30k back when I check around 2004, but I might be thinking of something else. I also lived in the minneapolis area at the time which was maybe not as high paying of a market?

Patent it 👍

I don't think you could get much more than a design patent on this type of thing considering hooks already exist.

I just don't understand why he didn't just RMA it like the rest of us when something goes wrong with their phones. There's something obviously wrong with the phone and getting an engineer and PR person involved seems pointless.

What kind of backwards logic is that? If a product is exhibiting a problem, then the actual people who work on it getting to take a look is the best thing that could happen because they might learn how to prevent it going forward, and on the PR side it shows the audience that they care. The only reason someone would protest this is if they just don't want to hear about anything going wrong with their baby, or maybe jealous of the attention that a public figure managed to get. Either way completely irrational. As an owner of this device I'm thrilled that this is being looked into. If it's a software issue maybe it'll save me from having to RMA it in the first place.

see more

My main argument here is just that whatever was wrong with his device was probably some hardware related issue because the vast majority of devices don't have that issue so it just comes down to quality control rather than a problem that actually needs investigation on-site like that. Don't get me wrong, it's cool that Google actually went to his house, but it feels more like a PR move than an investigation into an issue affecting a significant portion of users

I'm loving mine too! We've got it displaying family photos right now from out travels together. I finally figured out (thanks to a couple of people in this subreddit) how to Duo call the display from my phone when I'm not at home which is pretty cool too but my girlfriend never seems to want to answer it... lol

Does anyone know if I buy my parents a smart display if I can video call their smart display from mine?

see more

If your parents have a Duo account and set it up to link to their own display, you should be able to just say "hey Google, duo call mom" or whatever and it'll ring on her display (and phone too I think)

I recently bought a cheap USB-C endoscope on amazon but can't seem to get it to actually work on my phone. It just never shows up as a usable camera in any of the apps I've used. Works just fine when plugged into my laptop though. I'd have assumed a phone as new and capable as the pixel should work with one of these?

Try the app "OTG View".

I was having similar problems with an endoscope (via USB-C adapter) on my OG Pixel - none of the apps which worked with my N5 were still working on the Pixel. OTG View worked just fine, though. Worth a shot.

Hmmm, So I got it to work verrrry briefly (like as soon as I started to move the camera it crashed the app) but at least it's something!

At least with ours, it needs to be before a certain version I believe, like my boyfriend's S4 works with ours and my Pixel 2 doesn't at all.

The instructions that conveyed this were in broken English, so I don't know the right way to explain it either, I'm sorry.

Since I'm most definitely not allowed in *their* subreddit, I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about the discussion they're having over there... They literally sound like a bunch of old people ranting on facebook. These people think they're enlightened or some shit, but they're worse than I even thought. Someone mentioned that theyre vacationing in oregon and the bathrooms are now labeled unisex. His daughter pushed open the door "to find some fat degenerate sitting there with his dick in his hand" which has now devolved (even further) into a thread about how we need to get pedofiles out of our bathrooms. Like wtf are these people even on?

It’s not that hard to get sex. Women enjoy it just as much as men do and there is no shortage of women who engage in casual sex from time to time.

However, incels seems to have a high standard for the type of woman they want, and no standards for themselves. A woman who stays in shape and coordinates her outfits and has her hair done up a certain way is someone who cares about her appearance and her physical appeal to others. The amount of work she puts in to maintaining that particular level of attractiveness is very likely tied to what she expects from a partner- a reasonable amount of self worth and self importance, to the point where the male actually puts thought into the clothes he wears, the way his hair is styled, the length of his facial hair, etc. Not just putting on a fedora to hide your unkempt grease slicked bed head, the same dog hair covered black anime shirt featuring half naked children with adult physique you wear to bed at night, no attempt to shave your facial hair beyond what your electric trimmer is capable of and a general aversion to even just playing along with social norms so that you at least appear like someone with even a minute understanding of how to communicate with their human beings outside of the meme-laden voice chat in your favorite MMORPG or the cesspool that is 4chan.

Funny enough, they could still find women who are into all of that- if only they hadn’t convinced themselves of this incel bullshit and withdrawn into a pitiful, entitled, self destructive persona non grata... and even worse, apply a much higher standard for the women that expect sex from than they do to their own appearance and personality.

Is it ok to remain celibate into your 20’s? Is it ok to focus on other things?

Yes. YES. As a matter of fact, you SHOULD remain celibate until you find yourself - and your 20’s is a great time to do just that.

I was a virgin until 23. I’d had girlfriends, I’d fooled around, but never had sex until I was 23 and feeling the same way - alone and undesirable.

My first time was with a random girl I found on Craigslist, of all places. Just a quiet, shy college girl who didn’t date often and wanted to fuck. So I went over to get place and it was awful. I wasn’t into it because I felt really awkward and guilty, she didn’t know what she was doing and basically just laid there... it was terrible.

I thought for sure after that that I really was unattractive and undesirable but I kept trying and eventually went on a date with a woman who was 8 years older than me and very attracted to me. I told her I was basically a virgin, she didn’t seem put off by it. When we eventually decided to visit the bed room, not only was she not put off by my being a virgin, but it turned her on. She enjoyed teaching me, instructing me, telling me what to do, and she fucked the ever loving hell out of me night after night, sometimes twice in a row. Wasn’t long before I learned how to please a woman and she wasn’t afraid to tell me exactly what she wanted and needed.

Turns out all along that I wasn’t unattractive or undesirable, I just lacked self confidence and had to find the right woman who could get past that. She gave me a massive confidence booster and after we split up (she moved due to her job), I started dating again, and here I am a decade later married with two dogs a kid and my own home.

Weird, works for me every time. There are two places in the Google home app where you have to link Duo, did you do it in two places?

1) Settings - More Settings - Voice and Video Calls - Video and Voice Apps

2) Settings - Devices - Kitchen Display - Duo Video Calling

see more
Original Poster1 point · 3 days ago

Hmmm... I think ? Do you happen to remember which two places? I've got it linked under Settings -> Voice and Video Calls -> video and Voice apps

and I believe I set it up in the device settings for the device settings for the kitchen display as well.... anywhere else I'm missing? Its crazy that this isn't simpler to set up!

Edit: I may have figured it out! There was yet another settings page for the kitchen display which I seemed to have not noticed until now. I enable duo for that so I'll have to try it out when I'm off work!

I was at a crowded local dive bar with my wife last year for NYE. She's put on some weight but still looks sexy to me. This idiot we'd been sharing a table with asks her when she's due, even though she was holding a beer. Some people are just morons.

Your wife is on reddit, isn't she.

Everyone was shitting on last year's models too and then they still sold out. Make sure you're quick!

These are such cases that inspire me to stay with Apple, even though I love Android and see how better they are in some ways.

Totally in awe of their customer service. Google needs to catch up and atleast stay comparable to their #1 competitor.

see more

I won't say it's perfect, but I've had nothing but good luck with Google's customer service which is one reason I haven't really considered switching to anything else. Every once in a while when I start noticing burn-in on my phone screen I'll hit them up thru the chat support in the Pixel's settings menu, tell them whats happening, tell them I've already done a full reset (they always ask you to do that) and it didn't help. Then they give me the replacement options and I choose the one where they send you a replacement before you have to send your original device back. Never had this good of luck with any other phone manufacturer as far as support goes. (even apple required me to bring my girlfriend's phone to an authorized repair shop 35 minutes from home to have it repaired under warranty which took multiple days because the nearest apple store is 2 hours away)
