I'm at a bit of a loss. I've got the standard problem mobile phones get where it now struggles to accept charge from the USB port having bought the phone in December 2018. Same problem exists when using another charger. Following tips online I've tried cleaning the lint out using the teeth on a plastic comb, it's got a lot of fluff out but no change. Can't remove the battery because we live in the future. Any tips you can give?

I'd rather not have to buy a new phone but its a necessity so I can't send it off to be repaired.

It turns out there was a massive chunk of fluff in one corner and that eventually shot out with some force. Now my phone is turbocharging again which is something it hasn't done since shortly after I got it.

The lessons are:
1. A plastic comb works so no need to buy toothpicks. Don't use metal obviously.
2. You really do have to spend a good half hour at least digging into it. I only managed to get it out just before I was due to buy a new phone assuming the port was broken.

I'm confused as to why you don't just buy a standard dust cover you remove when you want to charge it.

>I'm confused as to why you don't just buy a standard dust cover you remove when you want to charge it.

Not him, but the constant plugging and unplugging of the cable is another factor in port damage, with Micro USB perhaps the most common form of failure, I think USB C is a lot better, but still not immune. So it both protects against dust permanently and also greatly reduces the wear on the port itself.

I don't use them myself as I have 1500 spare usb cables and I don't want to be tied down to one or two special ones, but it's still a good idea.

Also RE: cleaning the port, a can of compressed air is very useful.

Also the magnetic connector reduces the risk of breaking your USB port or pinging your phone across the room if you trip over the charging cable.

Apple used to have magnetic charger connectors on their laptops for this reason, but they abandoned it in their incessant quest for thinness.

Yeah, I charge it at bedside, in the car and at my desk. If I have to connect elsewhere ever, I just unplug the widget.
The benefit over a dust cover is that you just have to lob the cable in the right direction and it clamps on and connects. It also allowed you to connect micro-USB either way up, but that's lost now USB-C has unfucked the design. And yes, connectors fail - these both reduce the number of couplings from daily to annual, and tear free if something stupid (like the dog) happens and the cable gets yanked, avoiding connector damage or the phone being launched across the room. Mine also have tasteful and not-too-bright blue LEDs in the cable ends, so I can find it in the dark on the bedroom floor.
There's no way I'd ever bother with putting a dust cover back on. This cable plays to my idleness, and I'm fine with that.

Lads, help me out with some troubleshooting as I'm at a bit of a loss. I've not been able to get to a professional repair place for months and when I tried a local place a few months back they told me to fuck off because of Covid.

Issue:
Laptop seems to be suffering from some mysterious process causing it to often slow to a crawl and then sometimes it will freeze, fan runs into overdrive and I have to unplug it and put it away for the battery to discharge.

Hardware?
Assumed initially that it was poor internal cooling causing it to overheat so I cleaned the inside and later bought an external cooling pad but no joy. Speccy does not show anything unusual on temperature when it slows.

Software?
Nothing unusual on task manager, have done a reset to see if any apps were causing it, issue seems to be system-wide from testing different apps. Disabled dogshit Lenovo plugin.

I guess I will have to buy myself a new laptop soon which is annoying as I'm looking to get a mortgage in the new year and want to show my life as boring. Plus if I can fix it but still buy another laptop then I can give this to my mum who will just use it for facebook.

I have a spare busted monitor with a nice crack in the middle.

I understand that these days, buying a new one is cheaper than repairing. Still, it feels so wasteful to just throw it away.

Is there anything cool I can do with it, other than just dumping it? Failing a lack of entertaining or fun options, is there a way I should responsibly recycle it?

I just put a 23 inch LG monitor on gumtree for a fiver, and now someone's offering to pay for a courier to Leeds to have it delivered, which makes me feel like I've mugged myself off.

I got it for a tenner a few years ago off some dude who didn't want it because there was a pixel-wide green line 3/4 across the screen going down the entire way, presumably all dead pixels. Didn't bother me much. Then it started buzzing in the bottom left and flickering, found the problem required soldering, gave up.

Presumably this guy has a soldering iron and some experience with this. I mean, it's a good condition Flatron monitor.

Shall I just say I dropped it when getting it out of storage and try fixing it myself?

I'm at a stage where I have the time and resources to think more about the data that's collected about me, what I choose to make available, and how this might impact my life (perhaps all of our lives).

I really enjoy being able to use Google Maps and similar services, but suspect that even with certain features turned off, my location is likely being recorded. I also use Google suite for many things (e-mail, calendar, and so on). I have a mostly blank Facebook profile, but several years worth of use on WhatsApp. I'm vaguely aware that there is probably a tremendous amount of my data between several companies that is being stored and sold for advertisement, or perhaps even other purposes.

The question is: is this something I can avoid through clever personal choices, or can this only be addressed through more collective action and legislation? Am I wasting my time by installing an obscure Linux distribution and nagging my friends to join Diaspora rather than Facebook?

Have any of you found a "sweet spot" of compromise between privacy and practicality?

Honestly the older I get the less I care. I don't know if I'm just giving up, because I still bristle at the idea of companies having this data on me, but at the same time I feel like they already have nearly two decades of digital information on me, if they were paying any sort of attention. I was not nearly as privacy conscious at 15 as I was at 20-odd, and it's waning again now. The horror of the google maps timeline showing me every location I've ever visited in the last ten or more years is balance by the luxury of being able to go meandering and just have it all recorded for my leisure later. Same goes for being able to search for something like "passport" in my photo archive and a scan of my passport I used three jobs ago showing up. Horrifying, but delightfully convenient. Is that convenience worth the price I pay for it? Almost certainly not, but it's really hard to quit. I suppose that's the point.

Sorry to not help at all, there. I think there's a lot you can do to easily become more infotight, but perhaps a lot of that's negated if you still want to drive on a UK road or carry a mobile phone, or use a debit or credit card.

I, too, have read the book in the picture and I, too, did not enjoy it. I wanted more anger. I wanted it to be more accessible. I wanted it to have been written by Malcolm Gladwell.

Anyway, I try my hardest not to create new profiles for anything. I do not use apps which replace things I already have (I don't walk outside to an unknown location and trust Google to direct me; I take the A-Z with me that I already own). But there is only so much you can do: I try not to use Google websites in a lot of situations, but in those situations, there are often other services which you can't use unless you do a Captcha, for Google, for free, to train their self-driving car software. So Google do own you. But I keep refreshing the Captcha until I do not get a "keep clicking till there are none left" or one of the big pictures split into 16 segments; I refuse to do those and have been known to just try again later if I can't get an acceptable Captcha. But you can't just refuse to use any services they're involved in, because they are the gatekeepers of the entire Internet.

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?

Cheers.

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.

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.

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.

> Someone from Currys/PC World said so.

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.

Caveat emptor and all that.

Intel's latest are shite, Steve from Gamer's Nexus told me so and I trust him because he looks almost exactly like me.

I would have thought their testing methodology would be what put them in the trusted category, rather than his matted locks.

Woah, pal, let's not start saying rude things about Steve's very nice hair. This has been a perfectly civil thread up until now.

I recently installed this on my home network. I've never really experimented with adblockers before.

It is absolutely brilliant, easy to install, works perfectly. For the past week I have been browsing all my normal (news and other) sites with almost no adverts whatsoever on all the computers in my house, with nothing other than a DNS server change.

I commend it to you all.

I tested it on my smart TV and it seemed very poor at blocking YouTube ads.

uBlock origin is enough to block most ads on its own.

Whoops my bad, didn't read it was for TV specifically, but unfortunately the answer is that blocking Youtube ads on your TV, even with a Pi-hole, is just not that doable at the moment as Youtube's videos and ads are served from the same domain.

So my Three contract (24m One Plan at £33.50pm) is finally bloody ending and I'd rather not keep paying for this lacklustre Galaxy S4. It's caused me more bother than good.

Do any of you chaps have recommendations for a more modern handset, perhaps on contract at a lesser price? Stock Android is a bonus. Expandable memory is a must.

The Pocophone talk in /101/ got me thinking about my Pocophone F1 and how it's still working great, but the camera is fucking atrocious. If only they were interchangeable phone-to-phone, I'd upgrade it without having to ditch the rest of the phone.

Fucking planned obsolescence.

Yes, they're modular so the parts are replaceable/upgradeable.

Thank you for this, I'm looking to upgrade my phone at some point this year and wasn't aware of these.
