This is a question I often hear from parents new to swimming. You will sometimes hear swimmers and their parents refer to a pool being fast. And at certain meets you might notice that some of the faster swimmers don't even bother to signup even though the pool might be less than a mile from their home.
One of the issues I have run into with my Pixel 5 Phone is it overheats when recording 4K 60 Video. I know some of you would just suggestion turn it to 30 FPS, or even go down to HD, but I didn't pay a small fortune for the latest from Google to not use 4K 60 video recording. After some research I found the Trick to making it work.
So its been just over 3 months since I switched from Google Fi to Verizon Wireless. One this is clear. There is a huge difference on Verizon. My entire life I have assumed the spotty coverage, dropped calls, poor audio quality, and inconsistent speeds were just a fact of life with cell phones. I didn't expect much more when I switched to Verizon, with the exception of a more expensive bill. Here are the results
Yes, Verizon costs more. But I am finding the biggest reason to move to verizon is one you only realize after you move, and its also one they don't mention in their marketing. Voice quality affects business relationships!
Recently I had to do this and it was a huge learning experience not just for me, but also for the Customer Support Reps at Verizon who some of which have been helping customers for over 5 years. If you are like me, and found the voice quality and reliability of Google Fi's Network to be terrible, and want to move to Verizon here are the steps you will have to go through to make it happen.
A few years ago I posted about switching to Google Fi, which is an MVNO carrier ( meaning they don't actually have any toweres of their own. The process was simple, and I was happy with the service. Until I wasn't. Now I just switched to Verizon. Here is my story and why many of you might be about to do the same.
Recently my son was editing some of his videos for youtube. He came to me with a problem. Vegas was crashing. It would lock up and then force close. I suspected It could be the Video card, or maybe a corrupt system file. Turns out it was just a corrupt index.
One thing I have learned is whatever the TV talking heats are pushing as part of their fear agenda, almost never happens. They simply state theoretical bad case senerios in an attempt to keep viewers engaged. But the truth is COVID-19 is not like anything they have ever seen before, and what they are predicting is not going to happen. Here is my prediction for what will happen.
As a hobby I mine crypto currencies. After all when your work station has a couple of high end GPUs why not? Of course those of you in the know, obviously know I am not mining bitcion, but rather one of the hundreds of other ALT coins that are still minable with GPU, and haven't been taken over by the ASICs... yet.. Forever I have done pool mining, but recently I decided to give SOLO mining a try, and now I will likely never go back.
When Sony's A99ii Full Frame DSLT camera came out it had leading specs that people like me drooled over. But unfortunately it seems that Sony never intended pros to use this camera's 4K video recording for more than a minute of video. I guess they want us to fork out the big bucks for a dedicated Video Camera, rather than have the novelty of an all in one Photo / Video machine. After several years I think I have found the cause of the overheating, and its all in the batteries.
