    Brave is Chromium. So its just Chrome with additions.

    My Unpopular opinion is that one day Microsoft Edge will beat Google Chrome.

    Since uh.. it IS Chrome, that'll be a neat trick =P

    Google doesn't really care, as long as you're in their ecosystem.

    I've far to many times been at a party or a plethora of other social events, where people just can't seem to put down their phones.

    Another reason is that always having information in your pocket, can be negative. Want to prove someone wrong in something? Link them to a article that confirms your bias on something. Too much information always being there is something I just think blurs the line of what information is good or bad.
    Hm, seems reasonable.

    "Pull out your phone" implies that i always have my phone in my pocket. I dont.

    A lot of days i dont even have pockets, and my phone is in the living room or my office and I am not, and having the watch on (mind you, i didn't spend 400$+ on a smart watch; i got a 130$ WearOS watch from Mobvoi (TicWatch) that is perfectly good) means i dont miss calls or messages or emails... and i can control my smart home stuff with it... without having to "pull out my phone". 'Cause its strapped to my wrist.

    I agree with the "its not for everyone" thing - though in another 2-3 battery generations it might be. When i can ditch my cell phone and just wear a phone on my wrist, im there.

    The tech is already there (LTE smart watches can make calls) they just dont have the battery life.
    Ah, see I also avoid smart home devices. I'm not a luddite or technophobe--quite the contrary, I work in IT and build my own machines--but I prefer just walking around and hitting the switches I need to for lights and stuff. I watched my grandmother try turning off the lights with Alexa for minutes on end when I could have just walked around and flipped the switches myself in seconds. It's the personal control I don't want to give up, I think. Middlemen just get in the way, though I'd probably feel differently if I built and programmed a device from scratch, which would never happen because I'm also a bum.

    Lack of pockets is a failure of fashion design though, I'll give you that. I wear jeans or basketball shorts 99% of the time so that's not an issue I run into personally, though I certainly have herpa derpa'd and left my phone in weird places on occasion. Hell I nearly left for work without it this morning! Not that having a non-LTE watch would have helped from 10 miles away.

    My uncle has one of those Samsung Gear 3 watches hooked up to the data plan so he can get texts and stuff through it. I tried it for all of a day and just couldn't hack the small screen. Old age, I guess. Wouldn't mind a fitbit though? Just something dedicated to heart rate and steps, maybe.

    VR is an useless technology and already outdated because if anything, then Augmented Reality will be the way to go.

    Sadly Smartphone games will be an even bigger market in the future than they are now. And there will still be not a single real game on the phones for the next few years as long as people pay money for games that could have been created in the 90s.

    Windows will soon be based on a linux-core, althrough the file-system will stay the same.

    Alexa in particular has trouble understanding older people, and is not as good at voice recognition as Google or Siri. I never have an issue with my Google Homes. THough because i slur a bit it will sometimes confuse "on" for "off", but thats on me. I think both BitWit and Paul's Hardware did tests with all three ecosystems, and Alexa came out dead last in pretty much all situations.

    when I could have just walked around and flipped the switches myself in seconds. It's the personal control I don't want to give up, I think.
    So dont? I use TP-Link's Kasa ecosystem, and their smart switches (light switches) still havephysical toggles. You can ALSO turn them on and off with your voice. The Smart (plug) Switches have physical buttons on them. I cant imagine that Samsung and Phllips and the other ecosystems dont have the same things. The reason we upgraded is to be lazier. If i forget to switch off the lights in the kitchen, i can just tell Google to do it. Its amazing when you're in bed and realize you left the overhead light on. Or when suffering from FIP (Feline-Induced Paralysis) or CIP (Canine-Induced Paralysis).

    My uncle has one of those Samsung Gear 3 watches hooked up to the data plan so he can get texts and stuff through it.
    My Wife has a Samsung watch because she wanted it for fitness stuff (which WearOS lags behind in, just a bit)... but it sucks rocks for anything else because it runs on their "Tizen" OS (Not Android/WearOS) and its voice-recognition and voice-activated stuff is TERRIBLE.

    Meanwhile, on my 129$ TicWatch with WearOS i can use my voice to control the whole thing, send texts that way, have it read texts out loud to me, etc. (Which Apple is also good at via WatchOS). Ill agree that trying to manually type on that little ass screen is a no-go though. I have big fingers.

    How is it overrated? It's functionally superior in every way to HDDs... nothing to do with being 'over rated'. That's like saying Vehicle travel is overrated when walking is just fine. <_<;

    Strange to see managed languages above languages that accessing the memory and hardware directly with with very fast code (compiled) and lots of optimisation potential (for games or enterprise apps).

    I don't see C#/python above script languages at all, similar learning curve and similar restrictions.

    This is a subjective opinion. Thats what this thread is layed out to be about. Scripting languages are for newbies. Nowhere near similar learning curve. Python is a very high level language but its still lower then the script languages for a reason.

    Of course they were. NVIDIA bought it for a reason and 3DFX SLI made it till 2020 in NVIDIA GPUs.
