  • Replied in long absences?
    I'm not really seeing the point of special handling around vacations.   If you're not using devices, shut them down.  True if you're home or not. But essential 24/7 services (routers, security ...
  • Replied in Replace UPS
    It's just a compact, well understood interface that gives you up to 8 lines.  Easy to standardize on that end of the device, and then make a variety of connectors on the other for various ...
  • Replied in Replace UPS
    This is not a market where price correlates to quality.  At the heart, it's pretty simple technology - a big battery, a charger, and some software. APC is well respected in the datacenter, but ...
  • Replied in Replace UPS
    if you go with Cyberpower, you want the sine wave model : CP1000PFCLCD. Nice features here is the more informative LCD display. the smartups model is fine, also is sine generator. So a new battery ...
  • The expolits of CC numbers is largely a nuisance.   We have fraud protection and the companies have incentive to make sure we're made whole.  Otherwise, they will be forced to fix this messy ...
  • if insufficient people join the class, it can impact the settlement.    The point is less about the personal gain and more about the penalty to the offender.    Motivate them to do the right thing ...
  • historically, but that doesn't mean Edge still is.   Funny enough, search on edge browser security and you see it winning a lab test in 2016 (which always make you wonder about paid for results), ...
  • the insider trading bit will (hopefully) turn into the lead story.   Never a simpler case of insider trading.  Let's see what our toothless DoJ does with it.   Though if they fail, the class ...
  • please provide figures for that assertion.   Random write performance is likely to take a hit, but that's only one element of the whole story.
  • the ramp test has really been the only reliable game out there ... which may answer the question of how useful is 10bit display actually given all the effort. If the card is dithering here, I think ...
  • drop tolerance isn't the only measure for durability, but I'd agree it's significant WRT to units meant to be carried about in a laptop bag.   The substantial increase in volume being the other ...
  • seems more like a magnifying glass to me. With a WA lens, the sun, the only light emitter (as opposed to reflector), might represent 1% of the frame. With a 400 or 600, that percentage jumps...

  • how often did you do it with a long lens?

  • grandchildren or other teenage kids in search of some pocket cash may be the sanest answer here.
  • a 4tb 2.5" drive didn't exist until fairly recently, and the one I see (Seagate) is a 15mm height, rather than the more typical 7 or 9mm height that laptops are built around. So not really a ...
  • Replied in Just for ref
    This is a heat management matter.    Small chassis and 7200 rpm drives don't mesh well, not if you want to keep the fan quiet (or non existent). These days, of course, you're better off swapping in ...
  • Replied in Just for ref
    They started doing that with the Green line.   Their description was so evasive (for no reason really) that it lead readers, as well as many tech journalists, to believe the speed was not fixed, ...
  • This is an advantage of the Sola design style.  No o-rings to worry about.   Obviously it means no choice in the head, and my oldest one (early gen circa 2011) showed some corrosion in the exposed ...
  • Jeff - people managed to do landscape photography with less than 16MP for a long time. At one point, the 5D was an awesome choice. Stitching together multiple shots has long been done. But...

  • for the ads, McDonalds would use them. But reality - the burgers are flat as a pancake and don' t need tilt capability.
