    A little, yeah. I figured light Safari browsing wouldn't be a strain. Not sure if I want to deal with the hassle of reselling it and buying a more expensive Windows-based laptop though. Supposedly the lag is caused by graphics switching. Running on the 5500M dedicated GPU only appears to have fixed the problem.

    RIP to Sean Connery. Classy man, and unfortunately a quality that is often forgotten in this day and age.

    Looking at friends'/followers'/etc profiles on NBR and seeing how a lot of them haven't posted anything since several years ago.

    Some may know here that I often post some of the cigars I smoke on Instagram. I follow a couple hundred fellow cigar smokers and companies, and about three are women. So when I go to search IG, a vast majority of the pics are women smoking cigars. Nothing against this, but not interested in overt sexualitzation of the women and their cigars. Now what really is bugging me is within the last week, it's been a lot of women showing off their feet. Now which algorithm is coming to the conclusion I'm interested in this I'd like to know. Enough already.

    If I had to guess, it could well be the cigar companies: they want to provoke an emotional trigger to make you smoke.

    I'm not kidding. Watch "The Social Dillema" on Netflix (nothing to do with socialism, in case anyone is repulsed by the title).

    I'm so sick of tech right now. Any time a new product comes out, be it a new graphics card or a processor or a console, it sells out within two hours and then is impossible to find for the next several months. Even worse when bots are buying them all up so they can be resold on eBay at exorbitant rates. It seems like this problem is worse now than it's ever been before, but I'm not completely sure on that. Oh well, at least Apple seems to have consistent stock :)

    I totally agree. I know a sale is a sale to the manufacturer but man it can piss off the customer base. Not sure how easy it is to control but something should be done.

    I spend a lot of money on stuff I don't need, but I rarely will spend more than MSRP and try to get it for below whenever possible. I buy a ton of old Lego sets and always can find them below MSRP. I refuse to pay over list price for my next GPU. I may even switch to team red if I can get one at launch next week.

    You sound like a shill for Apple. How about the BS claim their MacBook Air is faster than 98% of the PC latops out there without providing any facts to back it up. How much faster and which PC's are we talking about?. Then we have stupid rebuttals with nothing to back it up either.

    Well you don't have to buy on release date.

    Patience you must have, my young padawan.
    Go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over.
