im-anti-net-neutrality

I'm anti net neutrality



Thread no: 63847599 - Thread date: 12/15/17(Fri)08:28:30. Replies: 142. Number of images: 8

I don't agree with anyone and I believe that ISPs could profit a lot by putting net neutrality aside. It could increase the rate and quality of researching new technologies which could benefit everyone in the future.

Why would you want to stagnate development /g/?

i fell for the linux meme and nothing i find on google stops the awful tearing in youtube and minor tearing in video playback in vlc/mpv/etc

i have an nvidia 960gtx and the proprietary nvidia driver. enabling full composition pipeline in the nvidia driver eliminated tearing from my DE and lessened it in vlc and mpv but didnt stop it and didnt affect youtube at all

im using cinnamon so cant just swap out my WM or id use to compiz or something

Why does Ryzen suck so much? I got two of these for free from work with motherboards but I'm thinking about buying a 7700k because the only obvious performance differences are in gaming where the 7700k is FAR better. Pretty sad desu.

Looking for a new FULL HD TV



Thread no: 63851146 - Thread date: 12/15/17(Fri)13:25:25. Replies: 6. Number of images: 0

Hello. I posted here recently asking for some suggestions on buying a 4K TV.
I came to the conclusion that it wouldn't make sense to buy a 4K TV right now for me, the 4K would not be used, so it's a waste of money for now.
So I decided I will get a new FULL HD TV, here are my requirements:

- full HD
- smart TV
- HDR
- 55"
- best possible quality
- 800-800 USD
- preferred producer Samsung, but I could get another if it would be better than any Samsungs

If you're looking for purchase advice, READ THE BUYERS GUIDE FIRST. Then post, stating budget and requirements (e.g. size and performance).
>Don't buy anything OTHER THAN HP 2570p/2170p/8570w, Dell E6430/E6440, IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T, X, and W/P Series if you want the Real Business Experience™
>Other business laptops are also welcome in /tpg/ (Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).

Recommended IBM models:
X60, X61, T60, T61, 860, Transnote, PC110

Recommended modern models:
X220 - 12", 768p, cheap and light
T420 - 14", 900p, widely available, socketed CPU, Ivy Bridge installable w/ Coreboot
W520 - 15", 1080p, Desktop Replacement, 32GB RAM on quadcore models, USB 3.0
T440p, T540p, W540 - last ThinkPads to have replaceable CPUs, IPS displays available, chiclet
P series - reminiscent to old build quality, top-of-the-line specs, better than most current mobile workstations, but very expensive

Why ThinkPad?
>Used machines are plentiful and cheap
>Excellent keyboards - tactile feel and quiet
>Great durability: chassis uses a magnesium rollcage for structural integrity, with high quality plastic body panels
>Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models
>Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop
>Easy to repair (most models), upgrade & maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for every model, spare parts easy & cheap to obtain
>The best TrackPoint, great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad
>Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support

Positives of NN Abolishment



Thread no: 63844984 - Thread date: 12/15/17(Fri)03:17:12. Replies: 39. Number of images: 4

Let's talk /g/, I'm not a bot, I'm not a liberal or a /pol/fag, I'm just a computer user who grew up and watched the internet develop as it has.

With that out of the way, I'm intrigued by the recent ruling on repealing NN simply because it means something might change instead of remaining as stagnant as it has been the last many years.

I had dial up in the somewhat early days on my old windows 3.1 system, it took forever but I could play tic tac toe online and frequently searched for games and news. In the early 2000s broadband was built in my area but only within city limits, we finally moved to around 15 mbps download which was amazingly fast, probably even better and more consistent than my current 20mbps connection. Sites werent bloated and tracking based advetising was very basic, also no pop up blockers.

Around 2005-2006 I lived in a rural zone and broadband had just made its way to parts of the countryside, this is east coast canada so im not sure how richer provinces were. The internet still wasnt bloated and websites loaded the fastest I could remember despite being on an older pentium 4 processor.

Somewhere around this point the smartphone boom happened, and the masses began flooding the internet, no longer a thing for nerds, people moved beyond texting with their phones and websites all adapted mobile layouts. I think it was around this point that targetted advertising and tracking found its roots. This is also when I remember the cost of plans getting more expensive, not post NN which was 2015.

So NN was introduced in the US at 2015, its been almost 3 years since, and the internet hasnt really improved since.

My break's over, but tell me how those of you who lived through the same timeline feel about this, personally im not hysterical about it like everyone else is, some of my best friends think Im 'brainwashed' for not being worried. But these protections have only been in place 3 years, and ive seen nothing get better yet.

>what is your Android browser?

I went from Naked -> Lightning -> Brave

Brave is absolutely perfect. It's Chrome but with none of the weaknesses and added features like ad/script blocking.

Naked was too basic, Lightning was better but couldn't do things like per site scriptblocking, and now Brave does everything I want.

What's your story, /g/? Android browsers are such a maze. Hope my story helps.
