  1. all the cellphone carrier ads right now are pretty much like "5G finally matters now because an iPhone has it" when a number of Android phones had the capability for atleast a year or more at this point.

      Do you think those of us with 3G will be obligated to upgrade to 5G phones?

      Tbh I think its just a given at this point that any modern phone you buy will atleast have 4G by default

  2. still the best commercial of all time

      It was just this, I like the zany chaotic energy from this track which also slightly makes me think of Rick (hopefully this one works)

  4. I just realized that Wario didn't have a random contraption strapped to his back for his Gamecube outing like Mario and Luigi did.

      Wario has the creeping spectre of greed upon his back in all his outings

  5. Everytime a new Apple event is coming I'm like "great, what dumb new design decisions are they gonna come up with this time that consumers on the Android side are gonna have to endure once Android manufacturers blindly copy those design decisions within the next year or so?"

      Please give me a reason to upgrade from an 8.

      Actually, at least just get rid of the fucking notch.

      whatever bad decision they make, there is a crowd who will gladly fork over 1000 bucks for it and they will keep doing it

  6. So surreal seeing almost-current One Piece content in dubbed form. Can't wait for Funimation to catch up even further.

      I once tried to write out an original song by coming up with bits and pieces, recording me humming them, and putting them together to get a complete picture of what it sounded like, and was like "Oh wow this is great"

      I found out about a month later that it sounded exactly like one bit from Radical Train, which I had heard literally 2 times before in my life at that point

  8. Checked my school schedule and it looks like I have a 2 week break between the end of my 1st 8 weeks of classes and the second. Thats, kinda relieving but tbh I was raring to go, mentally prepared and everything to get started on the next class I have to take right at midnight to try and get ahead early. Ah well, gonna try and hold onto this energy for the next 2 weeks anyway.

  9. I never really did like these AI-conversion 60fps videos, but tbh, the fact that the toons were animated on ones in WFRR makes the conversion process smoother looking here than in other animations which are usually on twos. This almost looks like bizarre behind the scenes production footage where Roger is a real living creature trying to get his lines right with the live action actors tbh

      as someone who thinks that the attempts at interpolating animation to 60 FPS are fascinating curios when done competently (i'm in neither of the two camps --on twitter-- who claim interpolated 60fps animation is either superior to their original lower-framerate animation or the absolute worst thing in the world), i really do love this particular WFRR example here.

      for me this is definitely the best example out of the various attempts since, as you said, it's far more consistently smooth than any of the other examples. there was one interpolated clip with mulan that was making the rounds on twitter over the past few weeks, i'd say it was handled really well for the most part, but you could tell the interpolation wasn't or couldn't be consistently applied. some areas of the animation moved more smoothly than others. this near-completely avoids that, probably because there's only one animated focal point in a live-action environment (instead of having to interpolate an entire scene).

      on that note--your comment about this clip looking like a behind the scenes film reminded me how with live-action films that are shot at 48 FPS (double the standard film framerate at 24 FPS), such as the hobbit movies and billy lynn's long halftime walk; are usually described as looking like a soap opera or a BBC (news) production, due to the sets and special effects are more conspicuous at a higher framerate, thus looking "fake" compared to when they are filmed at the standard 24 FPS. i think actually helps sell the effect of roger looking (more) like a living actor here in the clip (and this looking like a behind-the-scene film)l since the high framerate of the live-action film and the smooth animation fit together in near-harmonious sync.

  10. recently found out that Latin America is getting their own new One Piece dub and after watching a clip of it, its astonishing how much their Luffy sounds like our English one in terms of tone and gruffness. Its almost like either they used the Funi dub as reference, or Oda had a hand in picking their voice actors now too since he seems to keep picking Luffy voices that sound similar when choices are run by him from dubbing companies. This could just all be a big coincidence tho, but still.

     for comparison:

     

  11. Got a used Note 10 Plus from Ebay to try out. Much larger than my regular Note 10, about the size of my old Note 8 but without the bezels making the screen massive as a result. It might as well be a small tablet. A little harder to hold but split-screen multitasking is a lot better on a screen of its size.

      Was 50/50 on returning it (especially since the seller said it was "brand new" but the thing arrived dusty af with minor scratches and dents on the back (but with a perfect condition screen atleast) which indicates that whoever had it last didn't have it in a case but atleast had a screen protector on it, and I had to bust out the q-tips to clean it up a bit) but I think I may hold onto it, especially considering its still expensive af to buy directly from samsung itself and it is perfectly functional which is the main thing, so technically I still got it for a bargain considering. I'm gonna get some compressed air to clean it up further in the coming days. (lots of dust still in the speaker holes and s-pen silo.) I'll keep it as a back up in case I ever break my current phone at work, or heck- I might even switch to it.

  15. Its really telling how boring most smartphone designs have come when the manufacturers repeatedly only show off the backs of the phones these days because the front/ screen side is mainly the same now across most models aside from what the eyesore camera notch/ camera cutout looks like.

      You know I was thinking on how much I miss flip phones. I like being able to pull them out dramatically. You can't really have that with smartphones. 😕

    2. Ferno

      Agreed. Speaking of flip phones, modern foldables do have me partially interested. They just need 2 things for me to ever consider one: increased screen durability to the point that using a stylus or S Pen becomes possible on them, and having the prices drop dramatically, to the point that sub-$1000 midrange models start to become a reality.

      I like flip phones just for the sheer sass of shutting the phone on someone.

      This is one of my favorite tech guys on youtube tbh, he often goes in on old phones which is a plus. ah yes, the 00's, when I was a kid/teen and couldn't even afford phones. ..still a time I'm nostalgic for tho

      I've been using a flip phone for a couple years and I don't really miss smartphones all that much lol. The one thing I don't like is that texting is a pain but I was never good at texting with a touchscreen either, I need my fucking keyboards

      I miss my old, crappy, poorly-optimized java phone games. The Guitar Hero 3 mobile version where you needed to press multiple keys at once, except my phone couldn’t do that so some songs were literally unplayable. The amazing version of Sonic 2 that ran so slowly it would take me five minutes just to get through Emerald Hill zone. I didn’t care that they were crappy games, just having any games on your phone at all was a cool novelty.

      I had tetris on one of my cheap prepaid phones near the end of highschool and that was all I needed to pass the time on bus rides to and from track meets, etc.

      I remember Sonic Unleashed mobile. Surprisingly high quality for what amounted to an advertisement for the console versions.
