re: Oregon has corrected their Issued under Crystobal - Duckismyspiritanimal
As an Oregon fan, I’m really happy so far this season, after the opt-outs and significant amount of injuries we’ve had this season (20 players were out for this game). Herbert and before him, Mariota were great at protecting the football and avoiding interceptions. Shough has been far more willi...

re: Apple Pencil alternative - Duckismyspiritanimal
The cheapest good alternative is the Logitech Crayon. Make sure the iPads are compatible, they use a slightly different protocol. Nearly everything else is just a stylus where results may vary or are app dependent....

re: Have you video editors out there ever heard of the program Davinci Resolve? - Duckismyspiritanimal
Davinci Resolve is great, but to clarify a misstatement you made, FCP X does not charge for updates, if you have purchased it at anytime, you get all the updates and improvements. That said FCP and Resolve excel in very different areas, and have fairly different workflows. Also you need to have a Ma...

re: iPhone 12 preorder starts today - Duckismyspiritanimal
Basically yeah. You will be paying full price until they receive your phone and verify the condition that you stated. Then they will reimburse you for the phone. You typically have 10-14 days to ship the phone back to Apple or the carriers, so you will be able to transfer data. check the terms and c...

re: When is the best time to find a good deal on MacBooks? - Duckismyspiritanimal
Back to school really is the only appreciable discount. Resellers like B+H and Best Buy typically announce a small (relatively speaking) discount. If she’s okay with refurbs, the refurbished page at Apple.com has great deals and for warranty purposes Apple treats them the same a brand new. ...

re: Draft Prospects that I have been wrong about since 2018 - Duckismyspiritanimal
[quote]Herbert's NFL success is an indictment on the Oregon coaching staff.[/quote] To a degree, I think it’s an indictment of Marcus arroyos screen heavy offense, but I also think that it’s an indictment of the receiving corps. The recruiting seems to be taking care of that under Mario....

re: Smart phone insurance - Duckismyspiritanimal
I highly recommend against Asurion. The parts and repairs that I’ve seen them use, is just awful. And God forbid the remanufactured phone they send you has a problem, you have to go through phone tree he’ll to try and source a replacement. There is a reason that Asurion and others are cheaper than A...

re: Sonos Arc with Apple TV 4K - Duckismyspiritanimal
I am, haven’t had any trouble since buying it. Atv > LG B8 > Sonos arc via arc(audio return channel). Now technically that isn’t true uncompressed atmos, but for me it’s been fine. What I’ve seen is issues with older TVs not supporting quality atmos output via arc or e-arc. ...

This is great step, now we need county ordinances to allow college football (particularly for the Bay Area schools, it’s draconian), Oregon governor to approve for UO and OSU, and finally the wildfire smoke to clear so the air is breathable. ...

re: Apple Event: Apple Watch and Ipad - Duckismyspiritanimal
I think buying the series 6 especially if you are planning to keep the watch for several years makes a lot of sense. The discount on clearance watches are not particularly large (traditionally its about $50) plus the new sensors (altimeter, O2, etc) and brighter Always On Display makes a lot of sens...
