Just like there's a time and place for a mankini.

I don't consider them good value because they have non-replaceable batteries. Once the battery fails or dies completely and can't hold...

I'm from WA and I had no idea it wasn't a permanent fixture on the menu elsewhere.
17/05/2022 - 17:27
By being reliable since it uses the Zigbee protocol which allows for local control (no internet required) and also because it's easy to...

Malindo and by extension Lion Air (the parent company) have a terrible safety record. I'm not really counting the 737 Max incident because...

It seems ridiculous. They have full control over the hardware and OS, yet they still screw it up.
05/05/2022 - 01:09
I use in-ears a lot in summer because closed-back headphones are uncomfortable and get sweaty. Same goes for listening to music while...

You could fit a 3.5" HDD and 2.5" SSD easily enough. If you don't need the optical drive, then you could just disconnect its SATA...

These are great for running Blue Iris (surveillance software) since the power consumption is low and you can make use of Intel Quick Sync...

I've never claimed with the Price Protection policy, but the list of eligibility requirements always seemed so restrictive anyway.

At least on the flight part, you could just buy flexi tickets although they do cost more.
03/05/2022 - 13:46
Yep, but that's only while they classify them as a 'current' product. After a period of time determined by Apple, they mark products as...

Yes, but not just movies. It would also apply to YouTube which generally uses VP9 codec for videos as well as other video content, so you'd...

The main issue would be acceleration of H265 video. H264 would be fine though.

Most ANC headphones don't have replaceable batteries, you're right, but there are some exceptions such as the B&O Beoplay H9i. At least...

> The reality? Another downside is that the battery isn't replaceable and you're at the mercy of Apple as to how long it'll be supported....

Non-replaceable battery too :/
23/04/2022 - 12:54
Truly a 'cash in hand... job'
22/04/2022 - 13:05
Depends on frequency of consumption and the volume of coffee I guess. If you're buying $4.50 coffees twice each day, let's say arbitrarily...

The big problem with AirPods is that the battery can’t be replaced, so after 2-3 years or so they become junk. Sony’s in-ears have...
20/04/2022 - 09:49
No, they’d be terrible because of audio delay. You’d want AptX Low Latency support if you were thinking of buying something wireless...

It works fine, but you really must have ethernet for the host computer and also the Shield for the best experience.
15/04/2022 - 09:51
XM4 because the lithium battery is replaceable and not soldered. When the battery in the Bose set inevitably dies, then you’re stuck with...

They’re great for that price. My only qualms would be not being able to try them first to see if you find them comfortable.
13/04/2022 - 11:46
There's no difference. You'd start seeing degradation if you were extending by much longer lengths.
13/04/2022 - 00:42
Great find. JB are trying to sell these for $599.
11/04/2022 - 10:58
While I realise you said you want closed back (no sound leakage) and wireless, a lot of wireless headphones sold today tend to have a form...
11/04/2022 - 10:39
Just be aware that SSDs are terrible for offline or 'cold storage' purposes. Unlike HDDs, they need to be powered on occasionally to...

I’d be inclined to get the Anker ones instead. They’re well regarded in that price range.
07/04/2022 - 23:29
You can get universal headband covers to sort that out. I've had that happen before and while it doesn't 'fix' the problem, it does at...
