Ask away. I know some stuff.
My Chromebook is currently running OS version 112. It has never updated to 113 and now 114 is on the way. I've manually checked and it says the computer is up to date. I find this rather odd. Can updates be model specific?
It's a new model btw. It's supposed to receive updates until June 2030. So that's not the issue.
Nevermind, I found a link and it does vary by model. 112 is current for the model I have. I guess it comes down to hardware requirements.
Is there a simply usb-powered string light that I can plug into my tv, so that when the tv is on, it's backlit.
For fuck's sakes, everything on Amazon requires an app, bluetooth, connects to Google/Amazon/Apple/NASA/the proletariat.
I just want the tv to look purdy from behind.
If you literally just want lighting and not proper "tv backlighting" (which could be sync'd with the picture to provide scene-appropriate color), you can search Amazon for "usb fairy lights." They're super common/cheap:
Only catch is you'll have to make sure your TV's USB port is decent; lots of TVs output only the bare minimum power because they're only there to power a firmware upgrade USB drive or something.
Have you considered a tramp stamp?
I know more than a few people here on the board either have, or have asked about them, but Garmin has a bunch of their various watches on sale for Prime Day today/tomorrow, in case someone was waiting for a deal.
Looking at getting a new 4k tv. Most places around here sell samsung. But there are 4 different lines. OLED, QLED, Neo QLED, Crystal HD. Anyone have one, and why did you choose it over the others?
I'm not a huge TV guy but just some comments on display technology...
OLED is generally going to be the best pure picture quality. Blacks are incredibly black and colors are very saturated - OLEDs don't have backlights, so when an OLED pixel is displaying black, it's actually off. However, OLEDs can suffer from burn-in, so they may not be the best choice if you either leave certain channels on a lot or if you want your TV to last 15 years. Also they're dimmer so they may suffer in extremeny bright rooms.
QLED is pretty much just normal LEDs with some fancier tech.
Neo QLED are mini-LEDs. These will be better than QLED because mini-LEDs can turn off their individual backlights, but since they are still backlit they will still likely not be quite as good as the best OLEDs. But they will be brighter and have no burn-in.
I have no idea what Crystal HD is, sounds like branding bullshit.
TV’s with medical healing properties?
It's UHD for the poors who can't afford QLED.
The new Microsoft agreement says,
That doesn't seem like "my content." What are they trying to protect here?
The interaction with (and subsequent output from) AI services can be personal. If I ask Bing to help me understand the interactions between my herpes medication and my crabs medication, it's probably good if that output isn't considered Microsoft's property to share.
Totally agree! Thank you! I was misreading the notice in that part, as if it was implying it wasn't protected as private, due to being generated by AI.
Also, sorry about your herpes and crabs.
You can run a fairly reasonably trained LLM locally on your Apple silicon machine provided it has a sufficiently large hard disk. You can further keep it away from the spais by just air gapping that PC from the internet.
