Genuine leather is ok for light use, but don't expect it to last many years. Better than the split leather you'll normally get for this...

I'm guessing you mean micro usb 3 socket? Yeah those are common on hubs. I don't think they are as sturdy as USB A, but it would be easier...

[@JinK](/comment/6076179/redir): They were popular on phones for about a year before USB-C took off, but I think that's the only place I've...

[@cdaddy](/comment/6074614/redir): I don't know, I've seen some pretty good speed tests of no-name SSD's recently. It's twice the capacity,...

Bit are the correct measure for networks. Not all network traffic can be neatly divided up into 8bit chunks, once you start factoring in...

This is more expensive that an SSD + Enclosure option. Ramsta 480GB SSD was $99 yesterday. Enclosures are under $10.

The absolute cheapest usb3.0 hub is about $5 (I've been looking recently). To get one made out of aluminium cost over $10. This one has a...

Probably packaging size. The actual hub part of the device is only a little bit thicker than a USB-A socket, so a USB-B 3.0 socket wouldn't...

You could get a usb splitter cable and plug one into a charger and one into the pc, but that's a bit of effort.

Really? What monitors do you have that you can't clamp this onto?

I just paid $18 for one of these on ebay two days ago :(

This sounds like my experience of using Amazon. I signed up for prime US while I was over there in December and it took me months to cancel...

I had Amazon video for all of last year. I watched a few movies, and half of a TV series. I cancelled it this year.

I've had that watch for about a year now, in fact I'm wearing it today. The colours in the product shot don't look quite right to me, the...

Sapphire glass, simple design, khaki nylon band.... 3bar water resistance. What segment are they trying to sell to?

I owned an M43 a few years back, it was too big to pocket, and the image quality wasn't as good as the APSC canon I had at the time. I'd...

Are these David Avocado Wolfe certified?

So you think that a random on gumtree should just transfer $25k to a buyer on good faith?
09/06/2018 - 18:01
And cash is issued by the government, but theft and counterfeiting exists, so there are circumstances where cash may not be 'paid'. If you...

If the buyer was shady then I might be inclined to meet them at a bank, and cash the bank cheque with them present before handing over the...

Cops don't care about fraud now? Policing in Australia must have really gone down hill.

[@brad1601](/comment/6031861/redir): And a handwritten, signed note of sale, plus a photo of the buyer's licence, would be all the proof...

So you expect the buyer to accept the burden that you, the seller, are not willing to take?

My furniture is artisinally recrafted by my dogs. One of a kind.

The look pretty similar to some of the cheap ones on ebay, but these are slightly cheaper than on ebay (not much).

Are they different to the few other types of screws that you find for attaching mobos, drives, etc? I have a jar of various screws...

Hey! LA Ice isn't that bad (from memory), I remember drinking a lot of that in my uni days.
