Help me understand people who are oh-so-concerned about newly developed AI tools.

Alas, deep fakes, derp fakes, synthesizing Film or other convincing data like voice recordings, 3D models, etc...
Yeah it takes into question the suitability of recordings in curt. And what else?

Then there is this guy (also gives TED talks inventing scary tech related "scenarios")

What's wrong with people? Has decades of machine uprising scifi made everybody so afraid that they won't appreciate simple non-intelligent tools that make menial work unnecessary?

So both my old laptops are broke.One of them makes an extremely loud noise and the keyboard is fucked from spilling tea onto it years ago.
The other one has the screen hanging on by its threads and also makes a big loud nose and doesn't load up for more than 5 seconds.

>What I need it for.
>Browsing the web-I'm sick of only using my iPhone.
>Strewing films onto my tv and playing music when o don't want to use Spotify on my phone.
>secure dark market use so I'll probably want to use tails OS on it
>I would like to start playing about with music making programs for fun
>I'd like to relearn photoshop so I could make cool photos for a business I have planned.

Ive seen you can get some refurbished laptops for about £200

A quick look and these are two laptops that I think would work

Any suggestions ?

Long story short, I set up my router to control the bandwidth on my room mates tv. He was using a cheap tv with built in Amazon, Netflix Hulu, youtube, spotify streaming apps. So he stopped watching netflix because the video was coming out in a horribly low resolution. A few days later and his tv won't turn on anymore. Did I do something to cause this?

They'll unlock it if you produce a death certificate. Or you can just ask the previous owner if you didn't steal it. That's usually how it goes.

There is also an other problem, this iphone i got was bought by my sister with the previous owner who deleted his icloud account and then she gave the phone to her ex boyfriend who added his own account,

but my sister's ex-boyfriend is an asshole he return the phone to her when they broke up but he is refusing to unlock the phone because he is an asshole,

so i guess that this phone is fucked, thank you for you answer.

Google has launched an ad-blocker for its Chrome web browser that is designed to prevent "annoying" and "intrusive" ads being shown to users.
Google announced the move to curtail full-page and auto-playing video ads, among others, last year.
The choice of which ads to block will be determined by the Coalition for Better Ads (CBA) - made up of companies including Google and Facebook.
Sites will have 30 days to remove disruptive ads before blocking begins.
A survey of 40,000 US and European web users found that the most intrusive ads were full-page ads that hide the content of a web page and flashing animated ads, according to a blog by Chris Bentzel at Google.

"Chrome will automatically block ads on sites that fail the Better Ads Standards," wrote Bentzel.
"When at least one network request has been blocked, Chrome will show the user a message indicating that ad blocking has occurred as well as an option to disable this setting....."
The ad industry was generally accepting of the move, said Emily Tan, an editor at Campaign magazine.
"At first, people were worried that it would be implementing ad-blocking across the board," she told the BBC.
"Now everyone has a clearer picture of what it does."

Block party
Sites that have already altered the ads they show after being warned by Google include the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune.
However, users who simply want to block as many ads as possible may seek other solutions.

I have been using this link added to my hosts file to block most ads: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt I have also added; JavaScript Popup Blocker, No AutoPlay & Stop Autoplay for Youtube to my chrome type browsers. Seems to take out about 90% of the ads.

Largest advertiser on the internet blocks competitor's ads natively?

I agree with >>121623 about what the strategy is here, but google keeps throwing around their weight like this... I wonder if it's going to get them into antitrust trouble eventually.

Consider Google is US based. The (mostly right) policans and unwitting, haha 'followers,' made it possible so peoples information can be sold to this highest biddder. So basically no privacy. I doubt google has ever scraped peoples emails.

Heck, don't even have to wait for things to land on a server, ingoingg outgoing information is open to the trump fuks, and basically underminining our whole
internet infracrature. Trying to bring outher nations down along with the whole show deal.

If i uninstall my graphics card from the Device Manager....

Then restart my computer, will it install back on relaunch?

(The HDMI output isn't running correctly and thought this might fix it)

I assume this is a plugin card.

If it is a plugin card, do msconfig under start/run, see what is under start.
May be some worthless stuff related to the card or monitor.

Some disagree, especially tech from companies and say get drivers from the cards website. I think windows update does just fine with graphics cards and monitors. Could be a monitor driver as well.

But my point is updates from websites often install stuff you may never need. Nor want performance wise.

It'd probably be safer to uninstall from add/remove first, reboot the computer
sometimes it'll get redetected. then uninstall from device manager and reboot again to make sure it's completely gone (should default to generic VGA). at that point you can reinstall the driver from scratch.

because otherwise the driver files are still there and it'll autodetect upon reboot.

unless that IS your goal. then do as you mentioned originally.
this behavior hasn't been standardized (despite Microsoft guidelines) and your results may vary depending on device and manufacturer...

Guys i need some advice. i am 28 year old male, livin in Eastern europe, at the moment im working in warehouse and all of my life worked physical jobs but im also attending college(Multimedia technologies degree)
Im very uncertain of which career path to choose. im very introverted, have terrible anxiety but still i want to move on in life, one of my main character quality is that i have very rich imagination and good sense of humour(dunno how that helps lol)
So i must choose between few different career options:
  1. Sound engineer and producing(i like it alot, but huge downside that there are practicaly no jobs in my country for that branch)
  2. Graphic designer,like Photoshop master and etc.(its ok but i kinda suck at drawing,in a sense i never trained myself how to draw)
  3. Programming games or software (alot of job offers for this, but sometimes i think its too hard for me, since i cant into logic and ima brainlet for maths)
  4. Web developer (lots of jobs, but kinda meh for me)
  5. 3D artist,animator ( looks fun)
  6. Sysadmin or helpdesk, like IT route (well, maybe its boring but i think requires least brain usage)
So what do you think guys, what would be the best and most lucrative career path for an old fart like me?
Maybe some of you already working in one of my listed fields, and could share expierences? ive tried so many of these things, but if i want to make something out of myself i need to focus on one specific thing i guess ;/
Thank you for your time

Sup /tech/

I'm not sure if this is a subject better suited for you or /vg/ but hopefully some of you can share some experiences.

So basically I have used the Razer Goliathus Speed mouse pad for about 2 years. Although it's a great pad, I was really having issues with friction under my mouse (yes I would periodically clean the mat but it never seemed as smooth as it once was) so at the suggestion of my friend, I decided to try out a hard mouse mat.

I ended up getting the Corsair MM600 and for the most part, I like it. My problems with friction are obviously gone and I feel like flick shots are a lot easier. Pixel accuracy is still a bit difficult but I've had the pad for almost a week and am hoping I just adjust to it.

I do have one issue though, I tend to sometimes spin out (point at the sky) or the tracking will stop short on big swipes. I've read that sometimes the sensor can't keep up with fast movements, however this is a Logitech G Pro mouse I'm using. I also have used the surface tuning in the software (the hard pad preset seems the best).

I would like to know if anyone here has had similar experiences and if the problems went away after awhile (maybe breaking the pad in or something). I really don't want to stop using the pad but it is fucking me over a bit in FPS games like Siege or Overwatch.

Thank you.

It should be in msconfig under startup, or be removed in add/remove programs.
Annoyance programs the make things difficult and serve little purpose for the end user.
