That doesn't work. You used to be able to run the windows version of google chrome in wine to watch amazon videos in 1080p, but that hasn't worked in years. Just pirate it. It's easier than messing with their stupid DRM.

They should require it to be disclosed for any ads.

I tried google earth in Firefox and it runs smoothly, but I noticed it's putting some load on my GPU. Maybe hardware acceleration isn't enabled or isn't working in Firefox for you. I imagine it would run like crap without hardware acceleration.

People also make Linux run on low powered microcontrollers that take hours to boot and don't have enough processing power to do anything useful just because they can.

I just use the exhaust fan for temperature control.

If you use Firefox, you can transfer tabs between your phone and computer.

I made a sleeve of aluminum foil bubble insulation for mine. I taped it together with aluminum HVAC tape. It makes the enclosure heat up quicker, but I have to run the enclosure fan on longer prints to keep it from getting too hot.

Someone probably just did a crappy job converting HDR to SDR.

Will the chip actually last that long though? I would have expected a ceramic package with gold plated leads, not a plastic SOP-8.

Apple hardware is overpriced and they go out of their way to make it unrepairable.

It also makes the game look worse since you need to run it in 720p to get a playable frame rate, which requires non integer scaling on a 1080p screen. They could have gone with a 120Hz 720p OLED screen with variable refresh rate if they wanted a better screen than the Steam Deck for marketing reasons.

Why do they keep putting 1080p screens in the Steam Deck clones when they don't have enough GPU power to run most games in 1080p?

I picked this little scope up from the Seapac swap meet a week and a half ago for $3. It turns out that all it needed was some contact cleaner to get it working again.

This is a portable scope that can run from 12V DC as well as an internal battery. I don't have the battery for it, but I could probably put some 18650's in there if I disable the built in charger.
