re: Google's Unicorn: Is Project Ara closer than we think? - Korkstand
[quote]The CPU, GPU, cell radios, and RAM are all baked into the exoskeleton of the phone and are not modular. At least in the first model they are trying to ship.[/quote]I think that's how they plan to do it going forward, too. I read an article that says their market research said people just don'...

[quote]The allure for me is that I don't have to worry if my BT headphones have been charged or not. I also believe that the sound from the wired is better than BT. [/quote]USB to 3.5mm adapter cables exist, but I think the phone has to support it. And obviously any phone that eliminates the 3.5mm j...

re: Google's Unicorn: Is Project Ara closer than we think? - Korkstand
[quote]It's still not smart to get rid of the 3.5mm.[/quote]It will have to be smart one day. It may seem small, but the socket takes up a considerable amount of space inside a phone. It is something that has to be designed around for (IMO) minimal gain, especially considering that there are multipl...

re: AT&T Uverse/TV users.. regarding the $99.00 Installation fee - Korkstand
[quote]I also got $49 waived for some stupid fee, the $99 for some stupid fee, but there's a $50 they can't do anything about.[/quote] :lol: Here a fee, there a fee, everywhere a fee fee. Don't fall for the "I'm sorry, that's the best I can do" bull shite. They will even put you on hold and preten...

AT&T trains their reps to use so much misleading language it's pathetic. I don't even think the reps realize when they're screwing a customer over. ...

By the way, I think everyone should sign up on [link=(https://swgoh.gg/)]https://swgoh.gg/[/link].

re: Updating Kodi on FireTV Stick - Korkstand
It just runs Android, and typically when you sideload an apk you don't have to uninstall the old one first. It just upgrades the existing app and keeps all your settings. I have not tried this, but I think it should work. :lol:...

[quote]Upscaled content by its very nature won't look as good as native resolution.[/quote]It can look identical, better, or worse, depending on the scaler and settings. There is nothing inherent about the process that makes upscaled content look worse than at native resolution. A 1080 pixel fits pe...

[quote]he whole "is the curved TV a gimmick" thing doesn't make sense to me. [/quote]People call it a gimmick because it fits the definition exactly. The marketing says a curved screen looks bigger because the edges are closer to you. The reality is the effect is so minimal (less than 1" perceive...
