    What, no coronavirus thread???

    Hello! I'm definitely non-essential in all walks of life. Apple has me sitting at home doing training but at least I'm being paid and have health insurance. Alice (the wife) is a teacher and is supporting students remotely. And our son is 25 months old and terrorising us. But he's...

    New Hard Drive - physical or SSD?

    A Mushkin Reactor 1TB SSD is about £250 and performs comparably to a Samsung Evo. I've got one sitting on my desk waiting to transfer my data to it before replacing a 1TB hybrid drive that's not cutting it. -edit- A Samsung Evo 1TB is only £10 more on Amazon.co.uk! If you need more than 1TB...

    Apple Thread (Fans And Enthusiasts Edition)

    The 6S is a great phone. It's already faster than current Gen Android phones and for many people it doesn't make sense to upgrade.  Arguably, nobody NEEDS an iPhone 7!  My wife isn't interested in upgrading from hers either. CarPlay is available in newer aftermarket car stereos from Pioneer...

    Apple Thread (Fans And Enthusiasts Edition)

    Got my new phone yesterday. It's the 128GB black iPhone 7. I really like the look of the 2-camera system on the 7Plus but not enough to carry a massive phone. Got a "smoke grey"  leather case for it, which looks and feels great. New design for the 7, much better buttons than the old leather...

    Apple Thread (Anything Goes Edition)

    You're not far off the mark tbh. There is still a little movement.  Some Apple customers switched to Android prior to the launch of the 6 and 6 Plus because they wanted a bigger screen.  Many of them then switched back to get a large-screen iPhone.   Some people switch to Android for other...

    What doesn't piss you off?

    I had to google "Mornington Crescent". Now I have to listen to it.

    Apple Thread (Anything Goes Edition)

    There's a bit of misinformation floating around regarding the AirPods. Yep, they use standard Bluetooth.   Yes, they work with non-Apple devices, but some of the more advanced features (e.g. automatic setup on all your devices) are iPhone specific.  The Verge / Neowin article linked to earlier...

    Questions (which-do-not-deserve-their-own-thread) Thread

    Funnily enough, the posters on the left are mine (Civil War Spidey, Deadpool) and those on the right (Ivy boobs and Phoenix) were chosen by Alice! The small Gaara was painted for me by Alice as a surprise (arguably my favorite Naruto character).

    Looking for new external hard drive with network connection

    I'm struggling to find any direct attached storage devices that also allow Ethernet access.. If a NAS is out of the question, maybe consider a new regular USB HDD connected to a Pogoplug.  I believe you can disconnect from the Pogo Plug to transfer files directly over usb, then reattach to...

    Speaker Connections

    Correct! That's really what it's designed for (it actually isn't suitable for a turntable). Just a heads-up: a few of the reviews for that particular amp mention the wall plug not being up to code! O_o

    Speaker Connections

    I'd get a cheap amp and some banana plugs, like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gemtune-SA-50-Amplifier-Adapter-Standard-black/dp/B00KBIV1WW/ref=pd_vtph_23_tr_t_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=XBREMGDHGPCHSE8F01MZ No soldering required!

    Questions (which-do-not-deserve-their-own-thread) Thread

    Yeah, each KRK speaker has its own power cable, it's just an IEC (kettle) cable. You can plug straight from the Xonar's 3.5mm outs to the RCA input on the KRK using 3.5mm to RCA cables (I think your sound card came with 4 of them). Those Wharfedale speakers look nice but they're passive, so...

    Questions (which-do-not-deserve-their-own-thread) Thread

    I use reference / studio monitors with my computer:  KRK Rokit 8 G2 speakers.   They're not completely neutral (despite KRK's claims); slight bass emphasis, which sounds absolutely great when listening to already mixed music (but can make mixing tricky). They're powered speakers, no amp...

    What pisses you off?

    I've not really been keeping up to date with Britain's exit debate, so this was a good read for me.  The history behind us joining the EU was almost entirely new to me. The most interesting parts related to how little would change even if Britain does leave the EU; so many policies and...

    Good TV thread

    Considering the flak I got in the film thread for spoilers, kinda funny to have to fix that :D

    What pisses you off?

    Might just be an issue with my email account (also Hotmail) or the fact that it's being set up on a new device and there's an extra step it's trying to do? Either way, I managed to log into the website, disable Steam Guard via email, and set up Steam Guard again using the mobile app.  By the...

    What pisses you off?

    Brace yourself for petty annoyances.. Messing around on my MBP, installing software and getting it set up just right. Decided to install Steam and explore Mac gaming (worked ok on my Mac Mini) but Steam Guard is a steaming pile of shit and generates access codes that can take up to 30 minutes...
