  • Why do SSD prices increase?

    Best answer: I don't know where you're looking but I can still get a 1tb 860 EVO for less than $150, whereas the 500gb version is $80. A 2tb 860 EVO is about $285 on amazon.

    It does appear that these drives might be going back up in price. A month ago I bought another 1tb 860 EVO for $140. Speculators say the prices of DRAM and Flash memory are going to rise this year, due to cell phones using more RAM and Flash memory and the Flash memory and GDDR6 memory that will be used in the new gaming consoles. It would make sense for the 250gb drive to be more expensive since the production cost for the controller, PCB, and case are going to be the same no matter what size the drive is.

    There are 2 factors at play here.

    1. The listing you see of 1tb, 2tb, and 4tb drives are from 3rd party retailers who always charge more than MSRP.

    2. Understanding that only a handful of companies make Flash and DRAM Memory and that these memory modules are sold as a commodity. This means the price of memory modules fluctuates. If you've been paying attention to hardware for more than a few years, then you will remember 16gb of low quality DDR4 RAM going for $150, and a premium 500gb SSD going for $150 just a couple years ago.

    Hi guys. For a few weeks I've noticed in the available wifi networks list on my phone a "FBI Surveillance (govt)". It will be there and then disappear. It's been on my 12 year old daughter's phone too. Has anyone else seen this? I'm in WNY.

  • What are WIFI hotspots?

    I never knew of WIFI hotspots until recently at my library. If I bought one myself what would my extra charges be to keep it running. Is it based on how much internet time I use? What should my additional costs be if I get a hotspot?

  • How does Youtube pay so many people and where do they get the money from?

    Best answer: They do it automatically via electronic payment.

    They get the money from being part of the same corporation (Google) that's also home to one of the world's largest online advertising platforms (AdWords + AdSense).

    The money comes from companies and individuals paying for advertising through Google AdWords, with display ads (banner ads like on the side of the webpages both on YouTube + the similar one on the right side menu here on Yahoo Answers).... and also the video adverts that cut in at various points through the video content you watch on YouTube (e.g. for things like Grammerly, and various others).

  • How can I disable my parent’s security cameras?

    My mom caught me having friends over when she wasn’t home, and the next day, 7 Arlo home security cameras were installed inside and outside my home. I feel violated of my personal privacy, and overall... I hate it. They are wireless, so id assume they’re connected via WiFi, but the room with the router is locked out of my access. Any help is appreciated.

  • Do cameras ?

    Best answer:  Look at a photo and tilt it. The photo looks different. To be realistic you have to look at a photo head on, but also you have to be the correct distance from the photo.
     "you have to look at a photo head on", yes, that also means that if you move your eye from the center of the photo you are not looking at that part of the photo head on! So as soon as you look away from the center (as taken by the camera, not as cropped later on) you are distorting the image.
     Depth of field! Things in the background are out of focus. Things too close to the camera are out of focus. That doesn't happen with eyes, in real life as you look around your eyes re-focus immediately for any distance. (Unless you need glasses!)
     There is also the problem of whether 'rectilinear' lenses are realistic anyway (see other answer about fish eye lenses). Because the human eye is not 'rectilinear' anyway! (It gets more complicated when you consider brain processing too.)
     On the subject of brain processing, the brain also corrects for color cast, which for a camera you will have to do in Photoshop (or similar software (which may be in-camera)).

  • Is it worth buying an SSD HDD just to put Windows 10 on?

    Best answer: If you like faster boot times. There is even a speed boost on older motherboards that can't take full advantage of the ssd speed due to not having the lastest, faster sata ports. If you have any applications that are slow to open, an ssd can speed that up as well.
