    Lenovo T440p Laptop Upgrade
    • One of the few laptops that still have not so bad construction.

      Of course, they ditched lot of nice IBM things, but some remain, including upgradability.

      One of Huawei new "cities" campuses, and they have multiple. Spending total are around 25x more compared to Apple campus.

      Private talks is that for large companies like Huawei and Samsung current flagship and even middle range smartphones margins are extreme and even with billions funneled to top management bonuses they do not know where to park cash.

    US: Prepare for weak dollar and much more new tariffs
    • As your President, one would think that I would be thrilled with our very strong dollar. I am not! The Fed’s high interest rate level, in comparison to other countries, is keeping the dollar high, making it more difficult for our great manufacturers like Caterpillar, Boeing,.........John Deere, our car companies, & others, to compete on a level playing field. With substantial Fed Cuts (there is no inflation) and no quantitative tightening, the dollar will make it possible for our companies to win against any competition. We have the greatest companies.......in the world, there is nobody even close, but unfortunately the same cannot be said about our Federal Reserve. They have called it wrong at every step of the way, and we are still winning. Can you imagine what would happen if they actually called it right?

      Looks suspicious, very suspicious.

      Inflation coming, guys, and China will be blamed for it.

    Mass VR will be phasing out slowly
    • Samsung will no longer make any VR headsets for their phones and will stop making existing ones soon.

      Other manufacturers will follow. Chinese cheap VR headsets products are constantly cutting production also.

      Mass VR never really picked up, as around 80% of all VR headsets sold had been included for free with phones during deals.

    Capitalism: Apple starts blocking all third party battery replacements
    • If you replace the battery in the newest iPhones, a message indicating you need to service your battery appears in Settings > Battery, next to Battery Health. The “Service” message is normally an indication that the battery is degraded and needs to be replaced. The message still shows up when you put in a brand new battery, however. Here’s the bigger problem: our lab tests confirmed that even when you swap in a genuine Apple battery, the phone will still display the “Service” message.

      Thing that we see here is that battery is also small computer now and requires authentication.

      And it is only first step, second will be full blockade of unauthorized battery replacement, watch the news for horror stories of exploding Chinese third party batteries, will be soon in all major channels.

      All, 100%, new upcoming Apple notebooks will have same feature where each and ether component, even soldered BGA chips will require authentication and replacement only by authorized service. MY source confirmed that Apple intent to fully, 100% crack down on any third party service for new products, as well as later destroy Hackintosh (by going to proprietary LSI).

    Idiots: Warranty labels on NVMe SSDs
    • image

      same drive, but proper placement (really good is not have such at all)

      image

      Placement on top makes such drive overheat in few seconds during writing even with heatsink on top (as label is really horrible for heat transfer.

      Lot of other brands like to do similar things.
