Will probably never happen...... but cool nonetheless.

The Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 and 4 are pure trash. I sold one to this nice lady and it failed down the seam in less than a month. She took care of it, too - I could tell. The seam developed a black ink looking defect where it folds, then it looked like dark green paint dripping. The screen would not respond to touch at all, so therefore I couldn't transfer her data to the new warranty exchanged device. We are forced to use Samsung cloud, Google drive, mediafire.com and iCloud, 'cause these new phones do not have a SIM card tray with an SDXC slot any more. No 3.5mm AUX jack, either.

I know why the manufacturers are doing it - If someone wants to put a new battery in, or throw an expansion chip in, and they are retards and eff up the phone and try to do a warranty exchange, it makes Apple, Samsung, Google Pixel, Nord, Motorola and the rest look bad. Like everyone is putting out sub-par quality stuff, but the reality is some people are not as mechanically inclined as they think they are.
Google has a new watch that is better built than the iWatch and Samsung offerings, but 3rd party reviewers are saying they have to charge the battery twice a day. Junk.

I don't buy any Samsung phones. I am a google pixel fanboy. I like getting updates monthly and the pure android experience. I have a pixel 6 and an iPhone 12 for work.

Yeah, I was fiddling with out Google Pixel offerings - they are a bit different interface, but Android nonetheless.

Yeah, pretty annoying at company money grabs at making it so they are less liable for issues and get more money by making their product less expandable.

It's not just phone manufacturers like apple and samsung. You have john deer, and tesla who stick out for vehicle manufacturers. Then you have all the streaming services like Netflix and Disney +. Then you have subscription services like Microsoft office, and photoshop.

Less expandability, less consumer ownership, just more and more cornering markets and slowly tightening their products services and squeezing the money out of us until the next big competitive break through comes through that (hopefully) doesnt get bought out first that makes the big corporations obsolete if they dont adapt fast enough.

I dont know if it's the company or consumer to blame for allowing this to happen. No wait I take that back. I blame consumers not holding companies more accountable.

These companies have so much "lawyer speak" going on that they have made themselves untouchable - especially if a company throws the ol' LLC moniker on their tag - Look the fuck out, then !

In the end, the tax paying consumer (us) is the one getting it up the ass with no vas. The whole planet is this way, it's not just the good ol' U.S.A.

Looking good. I'm still on the fence if I'm gonna build a new PC or not. I don't really play any newish games. I may ride it out until Microsoft says I cant get patches anymore

Has anyone seen this issue with their install of Windows 11 ? : https://ibb.co/CwsBgSp

It pops up when I start UT99. I can just click the UT icon in the taskbar to make it go away, but it happens every friggin' time.

Win11 - AMD RX6700XT GPU
