I do like the ones we got, though
hidden for non-members5d

hidden for non-members5d
seems like the only ones are the usb ones
hidden for non-members5d
don’t want to buy those
hidden for non-members5d
the reason I don’t want to buy the ones that you linked to is that the charging mechanism inside the battery steals away from total capacity
hidden for non-members5d
foogrkvhdhccrtk those are underpowered
hidden for non-members5d
the reason you use lithium ones is because they'll give you the full 1.5
hidden for non-members5d
that's why so many devices tell you not to use rechargeable batteries
hidden for non-members5d
it's because their voltage starts at typically 1.2 and plummets quickly thereafter
hidden for non-members5d
the lithium ones that have come out recently were a game changer
hidden for non-members5d
at this point, I've dumped almost all of my NiMH AA batteries - they're just no good for most gear applications, especially ones you care about

Yep

NiMH batteries also degrade quickly
hidden for non-members5d
Lithium batteries are a constant 1.5v until they die

NiMH are a constant 1.2v until they die, but die faster

Devs out there, do you carry a keyboard you are comfortable with?
hidden for non-members4d
Such a personal choice... Might as well ask people what kind of underwear they like 😄
hidden for non-members4d
There's thousands of keyboards, depending on your need and budget. I'd say, do some research, find the one that tickles your fancy and try to live with it for a bit
hidden for non-members4d
Right now I'm using a super cheap plastic portable one, and even though it's not the most optimal, it's been working pretty good so might just keep it until I decide what I really want out of a keyboard, or someone makes what I really want
hidden for non-members4d
But, if you're an Apple user, the place to start is the Magic Keyboard, and work out options from there
hidden for non-members4d
I carry Logitech G Pro 😄
hidden for non-members4d
That's almost 1kg of a keyboard

Once Asus or MSI releases their new gaming portable display, might get a stand and make a holder. I was so resistant to stands for a long time, but I think with two displays it's definitely worth the effort to raise up the laptop

Trackballs are my go to when traveling. At my home base I also have a Logitech g600 mouse which has a bunch of buttons, bought it for gaming but ended up using it a lot more for work, the macros are so damn easy to program that I can’t even explain. Had to manually access and update some code on over 400 Shopify stores a while ago and pairing the g600 with textexpander saved me at least 2 or 3 days of work

Logitech K380 does wreck keyboard reviews though, it must be said.

So I'm seeing a big trend of tiny ortholinear keyboards as supposedly being good for ergonomics but I can't see keyboard that forces my hands to be that close together being comfortable

Not sure if they force you to have your hands closer when compared to any other keyboard
hidden for non-members4d
I literally haven’t used a mouse since I got a MacBook in 2006.. when I see people using a mouse I feel like I’m observing cave people using flint stones.. I also haven’t had much carpal tunnel syndrome since.. anyways I feel confused as to what sort of external keyboard setup to go with if I was to start doing roost stand.. the existing keyboard with trackpad attached to it under the space bar is perfect.. a lenovo keyboard with the nipple pointer could possibly work well though
hidden for non-members4d
Normally most custom keyboards have the same spacing between each switch, so, if you position your hands on the same position, it won’t make any difference. I think the idea of TKL and smaller keyboards overall is just to decrease the space occupied by the keyboard.
hidden for non-members4d
I use a K380 Logitech keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 while travelling. Love it and it’s been reliable for me for the last 2 years.

The k810/k811 is the premium/lighter alternative to K380.

I used that before with roost.

I’m looking for the smallest two drive enclosure that supports hardware RAID 0. The use case is that I want to create a 2 TB backup drive out of 2 x 1 TB SSD drives. This’ll be cheaper than buying a 2 TB SSD and also hopefully faster as it can read and write from 2 drives simultaneously.

I agree with vzrozjznd touchpad under the keyboard is perfect (and pre-2015+ years are perfect size, they made them too big after). The only reason I bought a mouse after buying Mac was when doing video course, mouse made it easier to crop screenshots and move clips in the editor. I still travel with one but use maybe only couple times a year when playing some video game (and I even played all kinds of games on just touch pad from turn based to FPS)

Can't get a good sense of whether huge phones just take some getting used to or whether they immediately make sense to you (or don't make sense to you) as soon as you pick one up.
hidden for non-members3d
I think this will depend on the size of your hands. If you have small hands I don’t think you will ever get used to it
hidden for non-members3d
I have pretty average size hands. I think a Note 10 (non plus) would've been doable without ergonomic concerns.

Trying to rationalize pushing up into 6.4"+ s10+ type territory since that's where all the action is these days with new devices. Best android phones - Note 10+, Pixel 4 XL, Oneplus 7T etc. are all huge.

A fairly simple test seems to be whether you can reach across the whole screen with one hand?

I think the increase in phone size has to do with usage, you’re probably more likely to use a phone more frequently the bigger it is
hidden for non-members3d
If you hardly ever want to use a phone, stick with 4” 😉
hidden for non-members3d
I'm in the hand-size camp... I use my phone constantly but have fairly small hands, and I wouldn't want a phone that I couldn't use one-handed -- if I always had to use two hands that would make me use it less, not more

```Since Apple introduced what it calls its Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature in September 2017, and with subsequent updates last year, advertisers have largely lost the ability to target people on Safari based on their browsing habits with cookies, the most commonly used technology for tracking.

Hey all, this is my first post here, to those who wear glasses What do you prefer for cleaning your glasses when travelling internationally? These days I mix a solution of alcohol, water, and a couple drops of dish soap and put it in a little spray bottle. But when I was in Kyrgyzstan I discovered that rubbing alcohol is only available with a doctor's prescription. In the past I've just used dish soap, but apparently some brands eat away at the AR-coating and turn it foggy. Here in the US I've heard that Dawn does that; I don't know what brands to avoid in other countries.
hidden for non-members2d
Of course there are always the eyeglass cleaners that you get in stores, but even in lower-cost countries you can pay $5 for a tiny bottle.
hidden for non-members2d
One drop of Dawn dish soap into a few ml of water. Cue tip to clean the crevasses. As far as the lenses, I just breathe on them and use a lint free cloth, and if they get grease on them then back to Dawn
hidden for non-members2d
Diluting it enough might make Dawn harmless to the antireflective coating -- maybe? I just don't want to replace $600 glasses because I used the wrong soap.
hidden for non-members2d
Alcohol is far more damaging and risk, imho
hidden for non-members2d
If you use Dawn and are super worried, then just rinse it off 🤷‍♂️
hidden for non-members2d
Don't overthink it 😉
hidden for non-members2d
I used to use a solution with alcohol and window cleaner, and never had problems. So alcohol with either formula was fine on my glasses.
hidden for non-members2d
Dawn is considered a "mild detergent", and you only need a drop in water to break the water tension and spread the anti-oil enzymes around. I use it for lots of things where a very mild degreaser is the best
hidden for non-members2d
Upside of alcohol, even though it is a bit stronger, is that it evaporates really quickly
hidden for non-members2d
Yeah, I've always thought it's ironic Dawn has always been marketed as being extra mild and gentle, and yet that's the one brand that eye doctors warn against.
hidden for non-members2d
Fair, dunno.
hidden for non-members2d
I abuse my glasses, so upon reflection... maybe I'm not the best person to give advice 😆
hidden for non-members2d
So in the US it's no problem I can avoid one brand. But travelling the world, I have no way of knowing which ones are safe on glasses.
hidden for non-members2d
Maybe they call it out, because some dish soaps contain hand lotion, which in general is easy to avoid
hidden for non-members2d
I do have a water bottle I use to clean my motorcycle visor, with water and Dawn, and only restock when I see it without lotion
hidden for non-members2d
Other people on the internet seem to love it, so... 🤷‍♂️

So... Here's the thing. When photography and video was a principal hobby, high PPI, high gamut displays were all I wanted. Now, because it's mostly coding and graphics for interactive media, high refresh is just so so smooth and pleasurable, I give that my priority
hidden for non-members1d
I still need nearly 100% RGB displays (preferably IPS, and soon OLED) for work, but not an AdobeRGB gamut any more
hidden for non-members1d
But, high refresh displays make day to day work lovely. For games, they're excellent (especially when you have the GPU power to back it and draw at 144+ FPS)
hidden for non-members1d
My ideal desk display right now would be a 1440p 24" IPS with over 100% RGB (and 10bit, with 8+FRC OK) and at least 144hz. These are coming very soon, but not readily available yet
hidden for non-members1d
I might get an LG UltraGear 27GL850-B soonish, because I'm tired of waiting for the next generation and this one is close enough, whenever it's generally available
hidden for non-members1d
(Oh, and also G-Sync/Freesync support)
hidden for non-members1d
When your gaming, drawing at 4k as unnecessarily compute heavy. Sure, it's nice but for most games you can't pick out the details enough, where being able to use higher graphics settings at lower PPI is far more noticeable (and pleasurable)
hidden for non-members1d
I have a 27" 144hz 1440p IPS at home base and I’d use only that if not for the fact that macOS can’t do fractional scaling to 125% so everything is too small to be comfortable. I use that for my windows/linux desktop and a different LG 24" 4k 60hz for macOS & coding
hidden for non-members1d
I'm itching for a new display at home base really bad. We were promised the next generation of panels in October but very few have come to market

If you’re upgrading to the next gen of GPUs, I don’t think that’s gonna be much of a problem. My Razer Blade handles everything I throw at it with max settings in 4k. 🤷‍♂️

just cover up the display with tempered glass and hope there's no bubbles
hidden for non-members1d
... at, ~60FPS
hidden for non-members1d
Yep, I get between 60 and 80fps generally.
hidden for non-members1d
Me personally, I'd rather have 144FPS in games. It's so much more smooth
hidden for non-members1d
I can imagine a scenario where someone unknowingly reaches up to wipe a spot off the precious display with a normal lens cloth... The whole office goes into slow-mo.... "NOOOO!!!"

I can barely tell the difference, whereas I can _definitely_ telling the difference between 4k and not.

Jabra Headset 370 USB Dongle - has a firmware update available that fails to run on MacOS. Their solution is to send a warranty replacement. How about you just fix your software. Shipping me a dongle half way around the world is likely not going to be easy for them to figure out. 🙂
hidden for non-members1d
I'm the other way around. But, that's

musical_note why we have options 🎵
hidden for non-members1d
Yep. I definitely start to get headaches if it dips _below_ 60fps, but my 4k Razer Blade feels totally smooth to me. I’m very happy with it, as opposed to my 4k monitor, which is supposedly 60hz, but seems jittery in comparison. I think it’s just lag. 🤔
hidden for non-members1d
For me, 1080p is fine up to 17. Above that, I'd prefer to take the slight gaming penalty and go to 1440p (mostly for panel heavy tools like Unity) until 32", then 4k starts to become necessary for work again

But, that's why I want a 24" with 1440p 144hz. Compromise of all worlds
hidden for non-members1d
Looks like I'm stuck with 27" 1440p for the time being though
hidden for non-members1d
I can tell the difference between 4k and 1440p on a 15”, so even larger and it’d be painfully obvious. 😣

Any camera nerds in here wanna talk a newbie through his first DSLR purchase? Currently tossing up the Canon EOS R and Sony A7III, but I can't see the woods for the trees.
hidden for non-members24h
First camera? Ever?
hidden for non-members24h
lrdufiohzbpslv Nope, I've shot some entry level mirrorless and DSLR cameras, always been quite happy with my shooting ability. More recently found myself frustrated by the lack of lenses for my Canon M50 so decided to upgrade it.
hidden for non-members24h
Then, yah... Cut on the lens availability, for your budget and features. By now, you should know what focal lengths you're really using, and find the best lenses in there, and then buy a body. I'm also a fan of bodies that have lots of external buttons
hidden for non-members24h
Honestly, excellent lenses on a used body is better than a great body with crap glass
hidden for non-members24h
(if you're weighing out how to balance the money)
hidden for non-members24h
Might also be a good time to experiment with prime lenses, if you find a gem
hidden for non-members24h
At this point since you're entirely changing systems, but if your budget permits, I'd also suggest going full frame and also again buy a used body

But.... If full frame gives you sticker shock, don't worry. APS-C is absolutely fine without any issue, and you'll save some serious cash
hidden for non-members24h
OK, that's my totally biased opinion, with little info. Take it for what it's worth 😉
hidden for non-members23h
Long time Nikon fanboy here. APS-C is all I can afford, lol. Currently on a D7200.
Having used a buddy's D750 and Z6, I don't think I am missing out on a lot. The mirrorless ones do give you a weight advantage. My Nikon rec would be D7500 or Z6
hidden for non-members23h
Brand is all about what system that jives best with you, so was trying to avoid it
hidden for non-members23h
agreed!
hidden for non-members23h
If I were starting now, I would probably go Sony. They have some amazing glass, and they are on the top of the mirrorless game
hidden for non-members23h
I'd pick up Pentax again, because they offer a lot of bang for buck, they're built like tanks, and I like DSLR over mirrorless. But that's a preference based on how I use (and abuse) cameras
hidden for non-members23h
their build quality is truly unmatched!
hidden for non-members23h
Definitely, especially for the price. Canon has tanky bodies and lenses too, but they're far larger and definitely far more expensive
hidden for non-members23h
I also have some lenses 😉
hidden for non-members22h
If it’s your first one, I’d pick up a used system to try out and get used to. Figure out what you want. What will you be using it for? IE what type of photos/subjects will you be taking pictures of do you think?
hidden for non-members22h
I use Olympus (M4/3) and am pretty happy with it and the lenses for it.. their 12-100 is awesome. A good friend of mine has gone from FF for years to M4/3 and now ended up with Fuji (APS-C) and is really happy with it. Seems to be a nice balance between FF and M4/3. If I was going to go FF now I’d probably get Sony. Do you want DSLR or FF - if it’s just FF your after I’d go with a mirrorless option.
hidden for non-members22h
Mirrorless or not is not a brand decision, but a personal and technical one IMHO
hidden for non-members21h
urboqvqfijlvck vdiouvg shefgxg Stepped out for a walk and came back to solid gold! 🌟 Thanks so much!

My big requirements are not going too huge, FF and good lens. Feeling seriously as though Sony might be the way to go. The A7III sems to be well priced and I am fairly sure with their 24-105mm lens I am a third of the way to having what I need.
hidden for non-members21h
My firm suggestion is go by the lens ecosystem first, and everything else falls into place
hidden for non-members21h
Not just one, but the ecosystem as a whole. (Third parties too)
hidden for non-members21h
But, maybe spoke too soon... Usability of the body, for your personal preference, does weigh in
hidden for non-members21h
Only other consideration I’d bring up is weatherproofing (if you need any, some or lots). I’ve become a bit spoiled with my Oly - it got broadsided by a saltwater wave last year in Bali. Gave it a rinse and a dry and it’s been rock solid. Also nice for when your out walking or hiking and it starts to rain 🙂

Hey, any of you using the iPad as a second display on the go since the launch of sidecar? I've tested it earlier with an iPad 6th gen + MacBook Air 2017 (the MBA 2017 isn't officially supported but you can bypass the lock) and the experience was far from good. I'm considering upgrading to the Macbook Air 2019 and knowing how well Sidecar worked with it would definitely help deciding
hidden for non-members14h
I had a great experience with my iPad Air 2 and MBP 2016 using Duet app. I feel wireless connectivity may lag a bit as it happens with Airplay.
hidden for non-members14h
Sidecar works quite well once able to connect. The issue is that sometimes it connects but the iPad is showing nothing. I generally restart iPad and it would work again
hidden for non-members14h
I find the quality of Sidecar better than Duet (again given after it connects successfully). So I always have Duet as backup
hidden for non-members14h
I saw the 16” MacBook Pro in person yesterday and it reminded me of the 17” MBPs, just seemed huge.. and quite heavy too
hidden for non-members14h
I’m definitely looking forward to the 14”
hidden for non-members14h
It’s the size of the old 15 inch retina. Perfect size
hidden for non-members14h
it looked and felt big, didn't have a 15" to compare with, and i only have a 13", so that's what i'm calibrated to
hidden for non-members14h
Good to know that I was actually looking for a review for Sidecar from someone who has used Duet so I can get an iPad Pro for that purpose
hidden for non-members14h
Yeah, I think that’s the thing. I’ve checked the dimensions online and it’s slightly smaller
hidden for non-members14h
And I’m using a 2015 15 MBP so that’s what I’m used to already
hidden for non-members14h
I am using iPad Pro 12.9" 2018 for this purpose by the way
hidden for non-members13h
I swapped up from a 2012 13” MBPr to a 15” 2015 MBPr and after a couple days I didn’t really notice a size or weight difference in daily use. Only time I do now is if it’s open and I’m carrying it one handed while walking. :)
I don’t think I could go back to a 13 now after having the extra screen size, power and ram.

hidden for non-members12h
I have no idea if people buy 50k dells.
hidden for non-members12h
well, considering some of the processor upgrades alone for Dell are $35k
hidden for non-members12h
unless you believe NO ONE is buying them, it seems logical to assume someone is buying $50k Dells
hidden for non-members12h
Studios spend ridiculous amounts on systems for rendering etc.. but from what I remember they all tended to prefer Apple. I would be curious the type of person that would buy a 50k dell.
hidden for non-members12h
machine learning, modeling, CAD, etc
hidden for non-members12h
we're nobody and we have 20k Dell servers for databases

there are graphics cards options that are >$30k alone

I have a 16". Yes it costs a fortune, but it actually feels worth it. Back to feeling like a MBP that could last me ~4 years macbook pros have for me in the past, in which case it pays for itself over time no question. Only thing is I wonder if they’ll drop a high refresh display on the MBP line next year, in which case that would be the one upgrade I’d really have FOMO over
hidden for non-members10h

it supports hundreds of different applications

I was in contact with CCC makers and they told me to use migration assistant 🤷‍♂️

There’s also something about config in memory caching. Some apps write the config on unload. So restore must occur when app is closed.

I would assume those apps have been removed from Mackup. I can't imagine you were the only one that had that issue. The sync does happen via the cloud, though, so I can see where that might be an issue

Bartender app behaves this way and it’s not removed from mackup.

dahurfhexn I am definitely not a professional, but I really want to get a full frame sensor and some better glass. Right now I a shooting the Canon EOS M50 which is a dandy little camera, but the lack of glass is killing me.

Ya, I keep debating switching back to full frame. I might in the future, but at the time I switched it made better financial sense and the weight of the camera was a little more than I wanted. I can't recommend the sony line enough though, their sensors are to die for and the glass is up to par now with the rest

nwuxqqkgcz I _think_ I am sold on the Sony A7III -- the pricepoint and sensor seem hard to beat. I think I'll start with either a 24-70 or a 24-105 and get the other in 2020.

Ya that thing looks slick

pxkjjhsnfr Going to go take a look in the flesh this AM. Hopefully the camera store will let me pop in an SD card and shoot a few frames to take home and check out in Lightroom. 😄

wow love the donut adapter, I needed that in my life!

Someone on here linked it a month ago, got it and havent looked back

I’d say it’s my Roost stand with K380 keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 - puts me into a focus zone and reduces physical stress
My most recent purchase that I’m loving is Krisp . ai for being able to do calls etc in noisy environments. Combined with a Jabra Evolve 75 wireless headset with ANC and boom mic makes for awesome calls and the ability to zone out too.

Update Airserver is the best. Deleted Duet and LonelyScreen. Airserver puts the other two to shame. So seamless. As a bonus it also does Google Cast and MiraCast.

did finally get Duet to work, but it's laggy and unstable still. No issues with Airserver so far.

has anyone put a fat-ass Razer gaming laptop or smth into a Roost stand?
hidden for non-members2h
Does it work?
hidden for non-members1h
Don't see why it would not... People put their MBP 15/16's in stands all the time

Razer is that thin?
hidden for non-members1h
What? They're not chunky thick laptops
hidden for non-members40min
If it’s a thick one you would probably need to use the Nextstand or whatever the knock off one is called. The roost only takes up to about a .5" lip I think it is. We tried a guys big Alienware in my Roost and it fit but was super snug in the front. I’d be worried about it wearing the plastic there.
