You people that worry about data have phones and computers right
It’s like those people that say they’re skeptical of privacy because of smart devices like an echo but have cell phones and computers all over the house.
The only one I'm skeptical of is the Facebook portal we got as a gift
TIL: I’m married to WED
Is it hypocritical because I own 3 Alexa/Echos? Yes.
But I’d never own a FB-created product like that.
Supposedly they made some improvements to new model’s keyboard mechanism to prevent things from getting under keys but don’t know if it has made a huge difference. You could easily never have an issue with it, that is just the one knock on those models. The new 16” MacBook that was just released and has a new mechanism altogether should fix the issues they were having but rest of laptops won’t get them until next year at the earliest. I believe Apple also offers extended warranty on those keyboards at no cost but not sure how long it is for. You could probably google it pretty easily and find out.
or you just dont ocnnect the tv to the internet. easy.
i initially scoffed at this but am now buying an expensive board game so i can force my wife to play with me. she doesn't like the video games I do and i dont care for most coop video games.
This is not a bad solution right now. 5 years from now, however, those tvs are gonna have SIM cards in them and you won't have a choice.
The OS on your phone and computer receives regular security patches that while they arent gonna stop Apple or Samsung from getting your data, will stop a random hacker.
Your LG tv is the most easily exploitable thing in your house even on Day 0
I'd never buy it myself.
That said the tech is actually pretty cool.
Yeah whatever, learn whatever you want about me
I mostly feel that way too but mostly...
I'm looking for fireplace accessories for the new house. Anyone seen any deals today? Could be just to small market of an object though.
Does anyone else have a Pixel 3a? I bought one since it was $100 off and I want a really nice camera and don't care that much about the other specs. I'm wondering if I should get a screen protector.
it’s fun, my wife won’t play Gloomhaven though. I’m running one campaign solo and one with friends, haven’t played either in a few months though.
The first time run it using all the stuff in the box but after that use the Gloomhaven helped app to track all the monsters
Just watching Amazon randomly or a store like Kohl’s is your best best imo
If I could get Costco’s website to work, I may purchase a 2019 MacBook Air for $799. If not, I’ll probably get the 2017 model for $650 on amazon.
Not when the pixel 4 has a really really nice camera.
I'd just get a good case and belt clip
im going to break my brain over what air fryer to get
I was seriously considering spending the money on a Pixel 4 and saw a lot of meh reviews. I also considered dropping a lot of money on the oneplus 7 pro but I just can't bring myself to spend more than $400 on a smartphone every couple of years when I really don't use it for anything intensive (other than wanting nice pictures). I am about to splurge on a new System76 laptop as justification.
i only have a couple hours of watching while smoking the turkey and quick glimpses of football, but it’s a major upgrade from my old lg
so far a decisive thumbs up
i had a pixel 2 xl and currently have a 4 xl. i use an otter box with no screen protecter and have never had any issues. maybe ive just been lucky, but im generally unlucky and am pretty rough on everything.
I thought someone on here was saying they could give camera advice?
I've never had a camera nicer than my pixel 3 but what do you all think of this as a starter kit. or maybe this would be better in another thread?
I had the Pixel 2 XL and loved it. If not for some issues in group chats with friends who have ape products, I'd still have it.
The regular Pixels apparently have a stronger glass screen so I might as well get some tempered glass protector.
Has anyone used that liquid protector stuff? Wonder if it's worth the higher price.
the lack of bloatware is my favorite thing. so as long as google keeps putting out good phones i'll keep buying them even if they arent the "best" on the market.
sorry to spam this thread but another question. Looking at smart locks. 5 doors to the house. anyone have thoughts on whether its useful to go smart lock all the way around? or just one from the front door.
I only have one On the front door and it’s amazing. The ability to type in a code to unlock is awesome. I wish I had it on other doors.
WEll I got some true wireless Soundcore (Anker-ownwed company) bluetooth earbuds for like $89. 7 hours on a single charge, wireless charging, IPX5. That's about it for me this weekend.
Powerbeats Pro seem to be the consistent winner in YouTube reviews for runners or people who have rigorous workout routines. They’re bulkier, but are more secure to the ear. They are waterproof, have up to nine hours per charge, and sync very well with iOS/Apple (Apple apparently bought the brand). They don’t have active noise cancellation, which is the main drawback for their price point.
I have these. Like them a lot but one batch stopped charging right, they just mailed me a brand new set.
I bought the jbl's at the recommendation of a Best buy rep and they are my least favorite purchase of the year. They don't charge consistently and need a charge box, they disconnect if I don't get a call for 20 minutes. I've had a few Bose sound sports and I love them but have had the rubber housing on the control deteriorate so was looking for something new. Tried the Bose 700 and they were nice but not 400$ nice. Sent them back and now have the Sony over ear.
Not sure what you’re upgrading but I can tell a difference too. I can also tell it’s not a top of the line model but between the size upgrade - 65 from 50 - and the the tech upgrade, it’s still definitely an improvement.
Anker is good stuff. I would prefer the AirPods Pro but not a chance in hell I’m dropping $250 on those
Upgrading from a 55 Samsung that’s about 5-8 years old
Pretty much the same.
Tv guys. Is it worth the price difference for the 7 series?
Got Netgear Orbi triband mesh (rbk23) with 3 units from Amazon in “used-like new” condition for $187 and no tax bc I guess vendor (unlike Amazon) is not in my state?? Regular $299 and BF sale price $263 new...
Today I got to spend $4300 on a bedroom set. Yay Black Friday.
How much did you save?
I bought the refurb version from amazon with warranty and it’s the shit. I would recommend getting the extended warranty if you can. I accidentally bricked my satellites and they replaced all 3 pieces for no charge. (Protip: updated the main orbi before the satellites).
Went with the Nest thermometer and a Nest Hub.
Went to Best Buy to pick up and the Sharp 4K Roku 50 inch was $230. Dumb to not purchase so now I have a bedroom tv.
Now what are you going to get her with that 2k that she just saved you?
Did you get warranty through amazon w purchase? Or squaretrade/other?
How did you brick the satellites? I worry about those too bc the main will def be hooked up to a surge protector, but not sure about satellites as they may be unsightly wherever they’re located (but FL thunderstorms eat electronics for breakfast).
Sigh... now looking for electric receptacles with built in surge protectors
I got the warranty via amazon when I checked out (asurion). I bricked it most likely because I updated the firmware on the satellites before the main router. Or atleast that’s what I read online.
