Just drop a bit of water on it. Glass is hydrophilic and will wet, while sapphire is hydrophobic and water beads off it. It's a pretty...

This. I've got an IKEA knife which stays pretty damn sharp for a few months at a time - but I quickly hone it after each use.

It's an automatic watch, which means it's purely mechanical. No battery here, just gears and springs. It'll probably go about 40hrs after...

The lack of backwards compatibility isn't the biggest issue, but you do lose the full graphical BIOS (and potentially some features like...

Look at their Mortar MAX for around $180. It's the micro-ATX version of the Tomahawk, and has a 32MB BIOS chip for future upgrade...

Depends when you bought your board. More likely than not, you will need a BIOS update.
04/06/2020 - 12:23
All valid points. The purpose of my comment was just to highlight that the upgrade path isn't the obvious "any AM4 board will accept any...

Note that the upgrade path on AM4 is a bit messy right now. B450 motherboards are likely to get support for the next generation, but only...

My favourite Windows Store experience was that when I uninstalled a game, it left 100GB of invisible files in my recycle bin. Recycle bin...

Been using mine for calls and teleconferences and everyone can hear me fine. They apparently aren't the leaders when it comes to mic...

I've been using the T5s for calls and haven't had any issues. They apparently don't work too well if there's loud background noise, but...

These don't have active noise cancellation during audio output (which tends to be expensive). The CVC noise reduction is purely on the...

It's not about specs, it's about the fact that Exynos chips are significantly less efficient. No-one is arguing that a few more points on a...

I find that difficult to believe, do you have a source? I'm sure they aren't regulated in a bunch of different positions and over a large...

Spring drive is cool tech, but there's not much practical point for it becoming standard. If you want a reliable, durable watch which keeps...

The problem is that 0.33A is only a charge rate of 0.17C for a 2000mAh battery. The most common way to detect whether an NiMH battery is...

It claims individual charging channels, which is good, but also says "5-8 hrs charge time". This is generally too slow to enable reliable...

Be aware that while these batteries are great, this particular charger is pretty garbage. It just runs on a timer and does not detect when...

With Macs, there was some truth to it because it was more economical to put effort into developing windows malware as you'd hit more...

I don't think a soundbar is the right solution for a PC, unless you're running it through a TV and sitting really far back. Soundbars are...

The chances increase as time goes on. New exploits aren't going to be fixed, and so it'll become more and more vulnerable. Windows 10 and...
29/01/2020 - 10:27
It's also smart to use a couple of smaller cards, rather than one big card, if shooting some kind of one-off event. If a card dies, at...

Dunno how you can say that. Had plenty of fun with it, and the wingsuiting is great!
12/11/2019 - 17:27
Look at the Liitokala Li-402 ($12 at Banggood right now). It's a smart charger which will charge just as well as the Nitecore and won't...

Couldn't agree more. Go easily loud enough without clipping (as far as I can tell) on my tiny SMSL SA-36A (which is only about 12 real...

Which Volls? I've got the original B44s and just bought a set of these. Felt the low end was lacking on the Volls and was hoping these...

30 seconds is way shorter than what I do. A lot of the 'recipes' I've seen will let the brew sit for 2 minutes or so, which seems to work...

As far as I know, this was caused by a bad batch of rotary encoders. Newer batches allegedly don't suffer from the issue. If yours is out...

How so? I've got one and other than the somewhat odd shape, I really like it.

The HDD manufacturers had the more sensible position, though. Kilogram, kilometre, kilopascal, kilonewton, kilovolt etc are all 10^3. It...
