    Mouse Recommendations for Mac?

    Setting up three-finger drag and drop on the Mac, under Accessibility settings, is super helpful for me, personally. I highly recommend it - it will work if your Mac built in trackpad supports "Force Touch" - most Mac trackpads do. I drag and drop things without issue on my MacBook using it -...

    Brian Johnson released

    Agreed - my last memory of Brian Johnson was him getting thunderstruck for 3 runs in the first against the Phillies last August

    MacBook Pro 2020

    As a user of a 2019 MacBook Pro with touchbar - the touchbar isn't very helpful, but it's occasionally useful. The model I'm recommending has it anyway. As you pointed out, If you are going Pro, make sure to go for a 2020 version because the keyboard is much more reliable. The $1299 (less any...

    Macbook Pro Keyboard Issue

    The fact that *none* of your keys (the letter keys, other than shift, command, etc.) work makes it unlikely that it's one of those "single key stuck because of the bad design of the Mac butterfly keyboard" issues. I'm thinking it may be configuration based, and a reset of the NVRAM and PRAM...

    Patriots New Uniforms

    Looks like the number font has been changed as well - notice there is no bottom portion at all to the number 1, and how the bottom piece of the number 2 is wider than before.

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 4 at Bills

    Koufax said: 538's ELO system has KC at #1, and did last week as well. The gap widened this week although their scores are still very close. I'll Roethlisberger the ELO joke, @BaseballJones

    2019 Raiders: Khalil Mack Has No Comment

    4 It must have been *torture* for AB to perform in “The Masked Singer” last fall with his vision cut off

    The Ringer

    The Ringer's July 10th story of David Berman {Silver Jews, Purple Mountains) was already awesome and heartbreaking... and even more so now that he has now passed away at age 52...

    Can we talk? Giving up the Landline phone

    Also, buy a good quality UPS (uninterruptible power supply - from a company like APC or CyberPower), and plug your cable modem / wifi router into it. There are sometimes power outages that don't affect the cable signal, and you can maintain phone (and internet) connectivity during these outages...

    Best Tablet for Reading and Light Computing

    2 recommendations: 1) A Surface Go will do the same thing for you, for less money, with a more portable form factor and just-as-sturdy build quality. I have one (the top of the line model that also has LTE) as a secondary road warrior device, and the screen quality is excellent. The Surface...

    Wifi and Router Issues

    Agreed that your wireless hardware is not the issue - it supports 802.11ac, which is more than fast enough to take advantage of your wireless bandwidth. Mid-range Dell laptops, once you get the drivers and BIOS updated (via LoweTek's link), are generally pretty solid machines. But especially...

    Wifi and Router Issues

    If you go to a Windows command prompt (many ways to do this - one is to type "cmd" into the "type here to search" bar at the bottom left of your Windows 10 machine then hit enter), type the following: netsh wlan show drivers then look at the results and type out what is listed after "Radio...

    AUCTION ITEM: Pair of unopened Coke bottles - 2004 World Series Champions

    For auction: a pair of unopened Coke bottles in perfect condition that I have owned since 2004 commemorating the World Series championship. Yes, the 14 1/2 year old soda is still inside. I'm thinking $20.04 for an opening bid. I will wrap them extra carefully and ship them wherever the...

    All iPhone X, all the time

    If you are happy with your 7, a $149 screen replacement at the Apple Store is also an option. But since you are looking to upgrade...also consider the additional costs. The Apple Store is running a promotion now, if you're going to buy a XR or XS, where they will give you $100 in trade-in...

    Traditional versus Boring Uniforms

    The Toronto Blue Jays are great (and rare) example of a design that is modern, only partially 'locked in', compatible with tradition, yet not boring.

    Traditional versus Boring Uniforms

    It's not just script instead of printing: The Rays, Padres, Mariners, Diamondbacks, and (to a lesser extent) Rangers have *stylized* printing that tries too hard to excite (and is also too hard to read) yet, opposite to intent, leads to boredom. Other teams (like the Pirates, Giants, and...

    ALCS 2018 - Houston Astros

    To Kemp's credit, he wouldn't have seen Betts' outfield arm in action. Betts was a 2B all the way through to AAA.
