I would rather get the TV and stick with PS3 games. A giant T.V. is how you show women who come over that you are a worthy mate. Just like deer with antlers.

A TV too large for the viewing distance is tacky.

Samsung remotes and user interfaces are especially annoying.

Compared with the 50" plasma my sister paid $12,000 for 19 years ago 85" 4k is pretty impressive though.

I bought a woman a 42 inch LG 4K T.V. at Walmart. Only $360. Strolled out of that Walmart like a king.

You bought it for somebody at Walmart or you bought it for somebody in your harem?

My harem of 4's as Uzique said. The Indonesian lady got a T.V., the Moroccan got a necklace from Swarovski yesterday, and my girlfriend got charms from Pandora. I need to buy the Indonesian some jewelry too.


If you give them a lot of gifts and are really nice and considerate, they will ignore the fact that you don't talk to them for hours and hours at a time. "Whats App said you logged in at 9 AM. Where were you?" "You don't want to spend the rest of the day with me?" [I need to get home to check in with the others.] Etc.

And this is exactly as exhausting as it sounds.

I did end up buying a PS5 directly from Sony, they had an interesting zero interest financing option through a company called Klarna, I checked Reddit and that seemed to be legit.  They just split the $500+tax into 4 separate payments every two weeks and then that's it.  Now I can finally give my new Bravia something that can utilize it to its full potential.

Bought myself an RTX 4070 with all the birthday cash I got.  It’s nice to finally be able to play modern games at 1440p max settings again and still get way higher performance than I was getting.  My RTX 2070 was such a disappointment, easily the worst nVidia card I’ve ever bought.  The benchmarks were showing literally double the average frame rate between the 2070 and 4070 at 1440p in most games so it seemed like the right time to upgrade.  nVidia’s RT hardware is also far enough along now that turning it on doesn’t murder your performance anymore like it did on the first-gen RT cards, which is great.

Isn't that about how it goes though? 4070 is like 80-100+% of a boost over the 2070. Same as the 2070 was over the 970. When I moved to 2070 Super, even with the system bottleneck I could see the improvement. 980 was still a fine card and at the time was worth the upgrade over the 700-whatever.

You never mentioned you got a new card. Did you do a full new build after seeing the bottleneck?

If @me, I had the 2070 since before video card prices went to shit. I don't think I'll upgrade without newer hardware. Probably like year 4 thinking I should grab some new hardware. Longest period I've ever went without replacing a PC, thanks in part I suppose to better hardware quality nowadays and all the games I'm just not that interested in running at max.

I bought a Samsung S23 Ultra. $1300. I was originally planning to get the Pixel 7 Pro $799 but it was out of stock. I liked my Pixel 3a (2019, $400.) and liked my Pixel Watch. I do have a pair of Samsung earbuds I really like and my TV is Samsung too. So I was open to their phones. I am glad I did.

I thought the upgrade from 3a to 7 Pro was big. The gap between the Google 7 Pro and Samsung is even more eyewatering.

It all came down to the rear camera. The Pixel 3a has a single 12.2 MP camera. The 7 Pro has 3 cameras. A 50mp, 48mp and 12mp. The S23 has 4 cameras. A 200mp, a 10 mp, 10 mp, 12mp. I don't know what any of that means but the numbers are bigger. Whoooosh And you do know how much I like pictures and videos.

I finally got a chance to play with the new flip phones. I was charmed by the things. The only thing that worries me is the Hinge wearing out. They feel sturdy but I don't trust that Hinge to last 4 years. I am going to buy one for my mom though.  Product tester.

Also, I have a case for the phone. I wish I was wealthy enough to not care to need one because they managed to get these phones thin and with good finishes.

This camera stuff has come up before in this or another thread. tl;dr the more cameras a phone has, the more specialized each can be at its job.

for your casual reading:

https://photographylife.com/what-are-me … s-how-many
https://www.androidauthority.com/samsun … a-3286077/

tl;dr can make your life easier, but alone doesn't really carry other aspects of good photography practices if you ever want to get into that.

Apparently my Nvidia driver has a vulnerability

https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers … -june-2023

It was pretty hard finding the driver, by some fluke I found the 'advanced' search page, the standard one didn't have it or a link to the advanced page, do I just install the latest one and hope for the best?
