They’re definitely getting cheaper. But that’s a helluva deal. The only thing I see at a quick glance is maybe bc the refresh rate is only 60 rather than 120?

I bought a Samsung 40” for my room in August and paid $399

120's nice, but some of them that say that are faking it. Really what you want now is OLED, which is still a little more expensive but you get better contrast and blacker blacks.

Try smoking better dope before you watch one.  Works wonders for me.

I bought a Deebot (cheaper roomba) over the holiday season. We’ve used it a few times, thing is a beast. Probably not a complete replacement for a regular vacuum cleaning but can def keep the place looking presentable when you’re too overwhelmed by work and a baby to vacuum.

perhaps you could explain sd's reasons for "disliking" it as well since you seem to be so in tune with other peoples minds

Ok smart people... questions:  Does anyone here use Apple Watch and fitness for cardio?  I do interval training and the outdoor walk app on the watch misjudges distance routinely.  My phone says I ran 4.49 miles yet the app on the watch reads 4.16.  Why is there such a discrepancy?  I’ve contacted the “geniuses” at Apple and they’re no help.  Is there a way to recalibrate this thing to set it to use GPS instead of stride?

Note:  I’ve tried the outdoor run version and the same thing happens only less frequently.

Thanks for your condescension and indifference in advance!

I can't help you but I'm curious...which one is more accurate, the GPS or the stride counter?  The former, I presume?

I forgot to check back on this.  Evidently it was a bug error.  It was cured by the last update I did.

And the GPS was spot-on.
