Uh...Isn't this kinda like the DS line? Hasn't it already proven to be successful?

If both screens become indistinguishable as one, there's a huge opportunity here.


Can I take this opportunity it may be helpful for me.

Helpful in being able to use English properly? Well, then, please, take all opportunity you need.

I must follow the DS line.

Please tell us what it leads to you when you finish following it! The 3DS line.


It's sad that these forums have become so quiet suddenly that conversing/playing around with a spambot is the only real action happening. :(

If you go no one may follow. That path is for your steps alone.

Aww...It got banned. And after it was kind enough to wish our likes success and our lives joyful.


I think there is a conspiracy going on. Why was our newest member banned so suddenly? I think the mods set this user up. Khush must have felt threatened that this user's witty and constructive posts because he did not want to lose his position as Best Poster. He added a bad link to this post, then removed it so it looks like he was the "big hero" of the forum. He is creating a false narrative on how bots are bad. Why judge all bots in the same light? Fight back against bot-ism and mod brutality!

And ShyGuys a Patron! This HAS to lead to an investigation! If it happened to one of us regular forum members it would be swept under the rug and there would be a statement about how "mod work is hard".

I've been waiting for that spambot to slip up so I could ban it with my banhammer. (I call my banhammer Sweetness). But this spambot had been tricky with vague posts that could be interpreted in many ways so I had to be even more cunning. Thus, I tried a new tactic and decided to pretend to be nice and let an encouraging and welcoming environment form around it in this thread. Sure, enough, the spambot felt safe enough to finally reveal its true nature and that gave me the right to ban that demonbot back to the hell it came from! The fact that other users are upset to see it go is just the icing on the cake for me! lolololololol

Of course, it looks like the lame-stream media wants to drum up some fake outrage over the incident but they won't be able to succeed since I was actually lenient to this spambot. A lot of times, I'll delete all of a spambot's posts even if they were on point or non-spam related. However, in this case, I decided removing the link was enough and left the rest of it's posting history intact for those that may have enjoyed it's messages. That calculated display of compassion means Internal Affairs will find nothing wrong in my actions and I'll pass yet another review or investigation (if one even occurs on this matter) like usual. In the immortal words of Rick Astley: "You know the rules and so do I."

That's not a very warm and welcoming environment you're creating there, Stratos.

Not new tech, but relevant to current tech needs and interest

SSD prices could drop like a rock for 2019.
Could be a good time to upgrade that harddrive.
I'm hoping this also relates to things like SD cards as well

I wonder if Samsung knew about that when they announced a 512GB version of the Note 9, with the base model being 128GB.

Good to see, though.

Even more impressive - the new spec for SD cards means we'll eventually be seeing 128TB micro SD cards. One hundred twenty-eight fucking terabytes, on a micro SD card! With write speeds of 985MB/sec!

If it becomes 8 cents a GB that means a 64GB sd card would become $5.12. 1TB could be as low as $80.

Switch is looking even more attractive.

So it is 2018 now - 2019 1TB $80, 2020 2TB $60, 2022 4TB $40, 2024 8TB $40, 2026 16TB $40, 2028 32TB $40, 2030 128TB $60. Not counting for currency inflation. OR maybe it is. We'll have to check that in 12 years to see how accurate that is.

Super glad this news dropped. I have been looking to invest in my PC, just bought 16GB of RAM, and I'm waiting for the sweet spot to grab a 1080/1080ti. The last area of performance need I see is migrating to a SSD. I'll hold out for the 1TB/$80 price to upgrade my storage.

Forget about that graphics card. Where I am living anyway that 1080ti is still 50% above the normal price during the life cycle while currently on sale!

I am waiting on the 20xx to drop but my expectations are low.

$1200 for the 2080ti...ouch.


Pretty sure I'll get a 1080ti, just waiting for one to drop to $500.

I might cave and get a 1070 if the prices don't drop by the end of the year.

Anyone heard of cool things coming out of CES 2019 yet?

Only thing I've noticed is a watch that runs on solar and body heat. https://www.cnet.com/news/solar-and-heat-powered-matrix-powerwatch-2-can-run-a-marathon-with-gps-and-heart-rate/

Oh that is awesome. Built it virtual surround sound and Apple AirPlay are huge pluses for me.  Though affordability is a bigger thing. :(

I don't have a link at the moment, but did you all see that 2 different companies just announced 1TB MicroSD cards!!!! O_o

that's practically unlimited storage in phone. LOL
Hope that means price shifts are about to happen soon to get the currently available 256GB+ cards to become affordable.
