Games that are 100% offline with no internet components purchased from a presumably DRM-free platform, that attempt to send outgoing packets across the internet, presumably to track when you play the game.

Made even worse when the game crashes itself when you block it with a firewall. I've run into an issue where some games crash when I use the built-in Windows Firewall to block them, and where they crash only when my second firewall is enabled to block them so I have to use either one or the other to block them and figure out which the game works with.

The other option is to yank the ethernet cable out of the computer before ever playing the games which seems a ridiculous thing to have to do to avoid what amounts to spyware in your games.

when you send an offer of €38 on an eBay listing, and some time later get an automated mail telling you that it was sold for €36.

Hunh...

disk failure
I was able to get stuff off the disk [it's an external], but it's still really annoying to see $80 vanish like that, and it was only a few months.

Related: when you send an offer on a $100 item for like a dollar less* and it gets automatically declined.

*As a curiosity after other reasonable offers were auto-declined.

eBay constantly "helping us" sell our shit by automatically turning on the "best offer" feature.

I just love it when people waste my time with bullshit low ball offers.

If I was desperate for money and wanted to sell it below the maximum value, I'd use the auction format.

I finally blocked a person that was using an offer bot. I'd consistently get offers from them for 40% (or lower) of my asking price. I like to have offers on but having auto-declines for garbage tier offers is a must.

I once had someone message me with some pretty nasty shit after their first 5 lowball offers were declined. I sent a reasonable counter at one point. I ended up blocking them and they made an alternate account to send me more nasty messages...

Oh that's my pet hate, some people just take the piss.

When you've been using the same mobile for years bc you don't care about the latest fancy stuff.
...but the battery is living its last charges, and you realize only now that it's not removable/replaceable.
So you basically have to buy a new f* phone right at a time you're f* broke but absolutely need one for work anyway. :x
Will pay attention to that not-so-little detail this time. Grr.

I’d recommend the LG G5 for your mobile needs, I upgraded to the G6 but I’ve still got mine as a gig/night out hone and it does day to day stuff at a decent speed The battery pulls straight out from the bottom, no need to mess around taking the back off. They go pretty cheap these days as well.
Anyhow, dug out the old crystal brick last night so I could re-start Silent Hill 2. Was astonished to find that the only input for the XB on the other half’s super-duper 65” 4K HDR TV is composite, no component, so it looks like dog shit. Then I remembered what a half-arsed attempt the joypad is – dpad isn’t too bad, but the face buttons are awful. I’d pay a decent price for a legacy Xbox that just worked with everything from XB-X360-XO and didn’t look like crap on a modern TV. I’m going to have to cave and find room for a CRT. I did a quick search and noticed that you can actually can an HDMI cable for it these days – anyone ever used one?

Fat women who go out drinking every weekend and then cry about how much they hate their bodies. Like... you're never going to stop being fat if you let your friends drag you to bars all the goddamn time.

People who go in the passing lane and sit next to a car in the other lane can just fuck right off.

yeah, this non-removable battery shit kinda pisses me off
I miss my Galaxy S3 sometimes. It was the last damn phone I've had with both expandable storage and a removable battery. Even bought a second battery for it, so I'd just swap when I got home, the other would be on a battery charger.

nowadays, I carry a powerbank -- not nearly as good, but it works

Fuck. I ran a Galaxy S3 up until about 4 months ago. Always relied on the swapable battery feature. Finally had to "upgrade", got the Samsung J7 Refine. It exhibits all of the same glitches and downfalls as the 6 year old Galaxy S3. Nothing runs better on the new phone, and now it is even more bloated with bullshit and constantly pushing shit software and advertisements on me.

Related pet peeve: all the stores (I went to 4) had the 16GB J7 Refine on display and advertised at $250. When I tried to buy it, they were like nope, we only have the 32 GB model for $300.
Had to buy the 32GB model even though I have no use that. The thing has expandable memory, why do I need 32 GB internal for $50 more?


Unrelated to phones, know what I can't stand? People who say "No yeah" as an affirmative. Or the inverse "Yes, no." when they just mean "No."

Yeah I'm totally unattracted to the so-called crazy specs of smartphones when after all these years whichever model i've tried (only androids tho) still can't manage more than two-three email accounts smoothly, disconnect from data networks after a while when you're not using them, keyboard's still too small and tricky if you don't have a huge screen, hard to read in broad daylight and the battery depletes too f* fast if you raise the brightness to compensate, and many have shitty GPS reception too.
Won't even mention browsing the internet, I don't do that much anyway, it's just too small for that period.

In short they're not so good at the basics, which is too bad since it's practically all i'm interested in.

For one I'm in the camp of those who think foldable screens (turn into a small tablet) will be a massive progess, the device remains as portable as before when folded, and becomes much more useable unfolded, much more comfortable for typing/reading/browsing.
With foldables no need to go for a ridiculous 'phablet' bigger than your hand.

Mini-periscope optical zooms if they develop well over time, will also be good progress, that upcoming 10x from Oppo will probably suck but it's a nice step forward.
The camera side of smartphones is probably the only other useful function besides communication, assuming they become decent, and i'm in the camp of people who like a zoom in their compact/pocket camera.

I like when the hardware actually improves with real innovations, don't care about how much cores or ram they carry nor how thin the borders are or if the resolution is 4K, if that doesn't make a difference in practice.
I mean smartphones as they are - simple palm sized screen with everything flattened and stuffed behind in a limited/closed monolithic design - can't fully replace dedicated devices, so of course the hardware has to evolve physically.
Meh, the walkman era was more fun.

So I haven't looked for a new phone seriously yet but it'll certainly be low end. Just browsed a few reviews around and they're all so annoying, like entire pages dedicated to the damn screen, camera, performance in games etc. I've read several that didn't make clear if the battery is removable or not! and apparently the quality of reception of the various networks isn't much of a concern to the reviewers. Are they reviewing atual tech devices or are smartphones some sort of fetish ? :?

It's much harder to put in the effort to lose weight when you could fill the void of depression with more alcohol ! It's not even the booze that gets people for weight gain, it's all the late night snacking afterwards along with the doing fuck all the entire next day.

When that great Subnautica game suddenly decides to spawn you in a room with no way to get out. Game Over, have to restart from the beginning.

Great game, no kidding, though.
