27887 Smartwatches
I lost my trusty LG Watch Urbane about 6 months ago. It didn't really bother me too much as I'd had it for about 5 years (bought for £120 used), and I wasn't really leaving the house. Now things are starting to kick off again, I'm looking at spending a similar amount on a smartwatch, but it seems that the market has got considerably worse since I last looked.

There are millions of shitty cheap watches out there with proprietary operating systems, and a few watches in the £100-150 range, but it seems a lot of manufacturers have given up on making their watches look like watches at this price point. One of the best features of the LG was multiple people not realising it was a smartwatch for months or years, until they saw me using it.

It's looking like my best bet around the £120 price point is a used Samsung Galaxy Watch, but even that is a bit too... it's got the second markers on the bezel and looks a bit Casio. Wear OS or Tizen (I've not had Tizer in years, and now I really want some) are a must, so do you lads know of anything sub-£150 used that's a better bet for looking like an actual watch?

Some googling found this. Certainly not fancy, but I'm trying to think why most people don't already have one of these, myself included. Would I find it too annoying to clip and unclip when I need to leave it to charge etc.? I dunno.

26960 Building a PC
Inspite of everything, I've given myself the medium term goal of building a decent PC, with a view to updrading it over time. I need to edit video and I'd like to play games on it, of course, so since Monday I've been doing some fairly basic research and making sure I wasn't playing myself by adding any daft components I don't need.

The following link is my basic idea that I'll be adding further SSDs and more RAM to over time, but I'd like to know if anyone has any advice, generally or specifically, about building a PC and possibly saving money while doing so. Video cards are still slightly mysterious to me right now.

It's enough to build and secure* a decent size and quality material greenhouse which I could use as a nursery to supply people with lots of free food plants every year, indefinitely. Myself and various charity/local-NGOs would foot the ongoing bill for the soil/compost and pots. Two and a half grand would be plenty, I can do the installation/labour myself.

We've got two phones here with their screens smashed to bits, but that's the only thing wrong with them. The cost of either replacing the screen or getting the data retrieved (I forget which) is about fifty quid so we'd rather not.

All we want is to retrieve the data from them; there are irreplaceable family pictures and work stuff on both.
I think they're both samsungs. Is there a cheaper way of doing it? We have the PINs, is there some software we can plug them into maybe, emulate their screens on a monitor or some other way to get the information out?

Putting pones back together (nicely) is the hard bit a lot of the time, If you don't need to do that, and you don't care about knackering the old screen as you take things apart, it's about as easy as it gets. Watch youtube videos.
I've done a few now, with good results. Amazon/ebay screens aren't always defect free, but again, you don't care.

The cheap chinesium "open all" screw driver kits also help, you should be able to get one for a few quid. Do not abuse them, they work just fine for the inside a mobile phone but won't screw your door hinges back on without disintegrating. A decent spudger also helps, if you have access to the metal banding used in packing a 2" section with tape around one side works wonders.

Is it possible to find a large, cheap, relatively underpowered tablet to function mainly to display a single screen of information?

How wasteful would it be to have a tablet on a shelf just to have an automatically updating weather forecast, or another next to an art desk to display reference images or a mood board?

The main concerns here would be the size and clarity of the display rather than computing power.

You can find old Android tablets on eBay with weak processors and shagged out batteries for next to nothing.

If you want a really big screen, you could get a cheap second-hand monitor or TV and hook up a Raspberry Pi or an Android TV box. If you're reasonably handy with electronics, you can get LVDS controller boards off eBay or Aliexpress for less than a tenner which would allow you to use the LCD from a broken laptop as a monitor.

27810 switching phone contract
I'm currently on a £10 a month rolling contract and I want to switch network provider to one that is £8 a month.

Apparently there's a switching service for this. What I don't understand is, what happens if I switch halfway through my current contract? Do I still have to pay the remainder? It says I must give them 30 days notice if I'm leaving but not sure if this applies with switching.

Yes. The "switching service" just allows you to move your number from one network to another. You're still liable for the remainder of your contract and you still need to tell your existing network that you're leaving.

But if you let your current plan lapse, you'll lose the number. I think that you either need to time it excruciatingly carefully and hope that neither provider fucks up (hah!) or just accept some overlap and pay the tenner.

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a laptop for like £400-600 and I'm basically retarded and can't make my mind up.

I don't really know why, but for several years I've been relying on a tablet and smartphone at home (plus my work PC in office hours), and I think it's time I actually got a grip on stuff like my ridiculous music collection and just being able to do stuff "properly" online.

I wouldn't be doing anything too intensive, maybe a bit of editing of videos. and if possible I wouldn't mind being able to play like sixth-generation (PS3/360 era) games on it, even just with medium settings.

But yeah, does anything really stand out in that price market? Every time I have a look through Ebuyer or whatever I tend to become ridiculously picky or just overwhelmed by the similarity, in reality I've pretty much always been satisfied with my tech purchases.

I for one always take my compsci advice from someone who failed their Argos exam.

In all seriousness you might be right, work has me tied into Intel CPUs for various reasons but I did recently (like a year ago) work with a bunch of HP gaming laptops with B&O speakers and top of the line AMD CPUs. We broke a lot of them but none of them due to overheating of the CPU afaik.

However those gaming laptops were basically mobile workstations - like 2" thick and with a power adaptor the size of a brick.

Human trafficking is more difficult following legalization and regulation.

Do either of you two feel like we've reached a kind of technological end point? It feels like the internet was the last great technology to truly alter the way people live their lives, and from here we're justing making sleeker or faster versions of what we already have. That Frankie Fukushima fella said we (or at least the west) reached the end of history in the sense that we've settled on a "final", least worst political system. In a certain sense it feels like we've reached an end of technology too, and that we shouldn't expect there to be any more technology that can truly revolutionise life.

If you put it in schizo "dude reality is a simulation lmao" terms, then you could say that we've begun to scratch at the walls that are the limits of the simulation.

I googled the topic and it seems certain people who are more qualified to provide opinions have reached similar conclusions.


> The notion that our 21st-century world is one of accelerating advances is so dominant that it seems churlish to challenge it. Almost every week we read about ‘new hopes’ for cancer sufferers, developments in the lab that might lead to new cures, talk of a new era of space tourism and super-jets that can fly round the world in a few hours. Yet a moment’s thought tells us that this vision of unparalleled innovation can’t be right, that many of these breathless reports of progress are in fact mere hype, speculation – even fantasy.

>Again, this "advance" just lets us maintain the normal better.

This really depends on what the "normal" means, for you. If the normal is just "able to produce a vaccine", then yes in a very broad sense, you're right, but the speed at which the vaccine was made was dependant on plenty of technology and processes that did not exist just a few years ago; mRNA vaccines were tested in animals from the 1990s, there was a lot of excitement and companies being built around it for human use in the 2000s and 2010s, but nothing really came to fruition until 2020.

Other recent biotech breakthroughs include CRISPR. Though the acronym strictly refers to understanding a pattern in DNA, it's usually used synonymously with Cas9 or CRISPR-Cas9, a new technology allowing us to edit genes within organisms.

I would say that, based on CRISPR alone, we are going to see some pretty wild and unexpected advances.

Ok so this might be a long one, not sure yet...

(Before I go any further I'll make it clear that this could just as easily be a mental health question as a technology one. I really don't know anymore and this is basically the last time I'm going to ask before I throw myself on the mercy of the NHS. I don't think I'm wrong but I wouldn't, would I?)

Let's say there's a massively successful tech company whose name begins with G (From hereon "Big G"). Let's say Big G also owns a successful video-sharing platform. I spend a lot of time on this video sharing platform just listening to music and watching clips of TV programmes from back in the day. Occasionally, while using this service, I will be reminded of a show I loved so much that I use a completely unrelated internet-based service to download the entirety of it, it doesn't matter what the show is but let's just pretend for the sake of argument it's Friends.

I NEVER use Big G's services on my computer and I NEVER torrent on my phone. As far as Big G can tell I probably don't even have a computer. I'm not more or less likely to discuss Friends on chat/messenger platforms on my phone than I am for shows I'm not actually ever going to download (let's say it's Everybody Loves Raymond) but still might watch clips of on Big G's video platform.

Furthermore I always use a vpn on my computer and I don't ever bother with one on my phone. Further, furthermore, I'm a Linux user on the desktop. Not because I especially care about free software and/or privacy, I just genuinely find it a better, friendlier-to-the-user OS than the various alternatives. I don't run Linux on my phone because I have a life and stuff and just use an OS made by Big G (technically it's still Linux but not really). I have NEVER(!!!!!!) logged in to anything related to Big G on my actual computers.

Big G can probably tell there are more devices on my network than I ever actually use their services with but they shouldn't(?) be able to tell what those devices are. It might be a a Raspberry Pi with an external drive stuffed with pirated shows but it could just as easily be a phone used by another resident who doesn't use Big G's email service for all they know.

And yet... whatever show I've just torrented. The next day Big G will start recommending me clips of it. Any show. It's literally like they're watching me.

How do they do this?

That's the most recent science I've heard too.

I have never bought into the bald men having more confidence, it's more that confident men are more likely to make the decision to shave their head rather than cling on. This idea is supported by a quick google of the various baldness related forums that exist mostly so men can post pictures of their bald spots and say "WHAT SHOULD I DO?!".

I feel bad for anyone who is that stressed or depressed about such a common trait in men.

It would make sense in that people like Trump and Musk are the other extreme, they're highly confident but they're also narcissists.

I have a work laptop and a personal laptop on my desk, with a nice big monitor, bluetooth keyboard, and bluetooth mouse in the middle.

I can switch between which secondary display I want to see on the monitor with the push of a button, but I have to pair the keyboard and mouse every single time.

Is it possible to pair the keyboard and mouse with both laptops and easily switch between them?

It seems like certain models of keyboard like the Logitech MK850 are designed with this in mind, but it would be nice not to have to buy any more new kit just for this.

Synergy is what you need. It's a bit of software that allows you to do this - it's like a VNC or remote desktop application, but is specifically designed around using a single keyboard/mouse across multiple computers and monitors.

It used to be free, but I can see it's now $29 for a lifetime license. I've used it loads, works across Mac/Linux/Windows, and while a niche use case, does exactly what you're describing.

Good shout, but my work laptop requires admin privileges to install new software. I'll raise it with IT and see what they say, but I'm open to other workarounds.

Getting a flashback to my Maplin days where we would sell people KVM switches that had probably been made in the mid 90s.

Incoming calls on Skype Android has a big, coloured "answer with video" button as opposed to a smaller, greyed out "answer with audio" button, as below:

I can't find any way to change this, so almost everytime someone Skype calls me I give them a 6 second closeup of my ear, or of my face at an unflattering angle.

There is no point to this thread other than to say I am thoroughly annoyed.

I would assume the hold out on using skype probably isn't them but the people they are talking to through it.

We'll forgive you this time, but go and stand in the corner and think about what you've done.
