    To be brutally honest, your best bet is to go for a Playstation and their VR Kit.

    It has educational titles and shit, but at least if they get bored with it you can nick it for Call of Duty.

    (I.e. a backdoor purchase you can tell the missus "but I only bought it for the kids, seems a shame to let it go to waste").

    How about bag of shirt phones. The newer the shit the shittier it is.
    The curved face may provide a softer more tactile feel but performance suffers. Bag of shot this new thing. I feel like a robot having to hammer out the damn keystrokes.

    So never again Samsung. You loose.

    End of relationship.

    Here we go! Newly leaked DJI Osmo Pocket video and photos surface ahead of DJI’s “Because Life is Big” event in New York this upcoming Wednesday. The photos and video show the actual packaging of the new handheld camera and gimbal. We have now seen an initial photo early this summer, the FCC filing, the leaked photo from last week and now these leaked photos and video. It seems that we will not be seeing a new Phantom 5 this week.

    Next, I need external storage of a reasonable size (1TB or 2TB), and it needs to be quite speedy too (at this stage, I'm not quite sure whether the work I'm doing will be better served by more space or more speed), so I'm considering these two:

    Glyph Atom raid which'll go about 800mbps read/write and cost around $300 1TB or $500 2TB



    Samsung X5 which is three times faster, but more expensive at $500 1TB / $1000 2TB




    The Samsung is dammmmmmmmn expensive, so may end up with just a 1TB Glyph Atom raid for starters (can always add more later if needed).
    How do I post these pictures???

    I think I will be having to buy a new laptop soon,too.
    Looking for a decent rig that can handle games and high power programs. May as well by something relatively future proof.

    Batty - you can just get the NVMe drive and an enclosure and DIY - 1 TB 250 USD - https://techreport.com/review/34413/...b-ssd-reviewed

    and for the gizmo terds

    if you are thinking about doing some home automation - this device you can install ubuntu , have it run a VNC server , plug it to your wifi router via cable or wifi and talk to it from your main computer

    from there the world is your orange

    Over the past couple of years I've bought 4 1tb WD externals, one stays plugged in for constant use which is working fine, and 3 for backup/storage that I rarely use; one of these clapped out last week while I was uploading so I checked the other two and one of those is also dead. No more WD for me!

    Devil and the deep blue sea there.... gay overpriced tat or chinky spying.

    Note 9 might be better.

    As for laptop, MSI is the bollocks.

    I've had one for a few months. My only beef is that although it has two slots for sim cards, if you add a memory card, it uses up one of the sim slots.

    FFS what sort of review is that? They don't like the design?

    I have this and it's a beast.

    I didn't buy it to carry it around all the time, so the cons are irrelevant.

    MSI GT75VR Titan Pro

    The Pros
    Excellent graphics performance; Solid overall performance; Extremely comfortable, colorful keyboard; Stays remarkably cool while gaming;


    The Cons
    Very heavy; Below-average battery life;

    If they were magnetic drives then they do seem to be less reliable - I've had a WD 1TB for a couple of years, but I don't trust it hence why I backup on the Glyph SSD and also keep the really important stuff on my MacBook SSD and Mac mini drives too.

    I'm not sure that any drive is totally reliable, so double backups seem to be the way to go for vital info. I suppose cloud storage is great too if you like that route.

    Cloud storage is great because it's free up to a reasonable limit.

    Just do your own encryption before storing it.

    large microSD cards might soon be a thing of the past

    Samsung Electronics has posted a news item to announce the fact that mass production has started on its 1 TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution. The 1 TB eUFS has been measured producing a sequential read speed of 1000 MB/s and a sequential write speed of 260 MB/s. As Samsung carefully points out, this makes it faster than a typical SATA SSD.

    I thought Harry might get the message that if you drop the h from shirt you'd get what I'm saying. It's crap. I took it back right after I drove back from Texas. I couldn't see myself stuck with the damn thing for two months in Asia.

    Hell that would be like trying your play station three. Not at all worth the effort.

    You Harry are an idiot for thinking I'm retarded. I think your a broke ass bitch stuck in a screwed up joint because you couldn't play the hand that life delt you and so you folded.

    Prove me wrong, looser.

    The answer is.....most of the time. The last two months were a bit of a party though. I almost miss the place now.

    I may give the phone another shot. I only had it for a few days and I really didn't like it for texting and knew if I didn't take it back before I blasted off on sabbatical I'd be stuck with it. I was happy just to pay the restocking fee and stick with what worked for me at the time.

    Oh, and Harry sorry if I was a bit blunt with you. I'm really not a retard, just a little artistic.
