Where is the UDID in the new iPhones? Need to register the device to my dev account. This 100 char requirement is terrible.

I have an XS Max and don't see the UDID in iTunes anymore when you click Serial Number (or anywhere else).

CPU Register Vs RAM . - 32bit vs 64bit

Hello,

I was trying to understand what does 32-bit or 64-bit actually means. I am aware that 32-bit can have max upto 4GB of RAM and 64-bit can have in exabytes.

After going through few articles, I understand that 32 or 64 is actually the size of CPU register(Correct me if i am wrong)

Now my question is, How does the CPU register influences size of RAM? (Meaning why we have been told 64bit means more RAM)

May be i am missing something very basic. Can someone enlighten me?

Thanks.

Anyone else having a hard time wrapping your head around object oriented programming?

Learn Programming - 4 hours 50 min ago

I feel like I went from crawl to sprint with a lot of these new ideas. I understand the concept but I still can't visualize half the stuff I'm told to understand in this course.

I've been pressing the "I believe button" for a couple weeks hoping that eventually it will click but it hasn't.

Did anyone else feel this way their first time using OOP?

Python: How can I append and replace a string at the same time?

Learn Programming - 5 hours 5 min ago

for an example, I have this body of code:

linkss = [] embed = [] data = page_soup.findAll('div',attrs={'class':'search-result-footer'}) for div in data: links = div.findAll('a') for a in links: linkss.append(a['href']) embed.append(a['href'] + replace("/f/", "/embed")) ### something like this?

trying to figure out this line: embed.append(a['href'] + replace("/f/", "/embed"))

What am I doing wrong here?

Any trusted refurbished laptop sites for "high-spec" laptops? Plus more details. (long post)

TL;DR: I am saving up enough for a laptop (suitable for graphic design, light gaming) to upgrade from my old one, any trusted websites for discounts or refurbished laptops in the UK?

I've been saying up for maybe like a year and a half now, and I'm coming close (almost) to being able to afford my new laptop. Posted at the foot of this post will be my Predictions list based on what I'm making on average each month and what is soon to come (NOTE: X-Mas money and B-Day money are predictions of what I may have in total, however may not be entirely accurate as I don't know how much I will be receiving anyhow). Does anyone have any tips for discounts or know which time is best for me to buy this laptop?

Current laptop: Full specs here* An old Samsung laptop. Nothing much to say except it's big and heavy and I would like to do homework on my bed every once-in-a-while without it dying on me while also killing my legs in the process. I'm not especially interested in any laptops with the same as my current one because I'd like to upgrade and have this laptop for a while without having to buy a new one again - Something along the lines of a laptop with 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD? Cannot find the laptop model at all, even from the model number on the back.

My needs: I'm currently studying Art and Photography separately at school, which means I will need a laptop capable of withstanding Photoshop Elements 13 and perhaps some digital drawing if I can. Unlike the billions of people on Earth, I might do some light gaming** which may also require decent VRAM and not Integrated/Shared graphics.

Thoughts & Ideas I have a few in mind but it all depends on discounts and whether I can afford it, etc; The Windows Surface line are currently out of bounds (I AM an art student, but there is no way I'm paying an average of 400-800 extra for pen synaptics), the Dell XPS line (I would consider them if I decided on getting a non-convertible laptop), the Lenovo Yoga "line" (the 720 in particular, while I'm looking at discounted prices for refurbished models I'd like to know whether there are any trusted 3rd-party sellers who distribute these models), and MAYBE the HP Spectre x360 (I've watched a few videos on it comparing it to the Lenovo Yoga 720 and it all depends on my final choice). All of these I have looked at in the past and have been on and off looking at them all - But I think it's time I start looking online for advice and opinions.

  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.4GHz 8.00 GB (7.89 usable) 256GB SSD (Samsung branded maybe?) Intel HD Graphics 4000 64-bit Operating System (x64-based processor) No Pen or Touch Input is available for this Display. 1600 x 900 60 Hz refresh rate [I have no idea what the capacity of my battery is but I'm sure it lasts for at least 30 minutes]

** The games I play aren't necessarily graphically demanding, but here are some to name a few: GarrysMod Half-Life 2 The Sims 4 Life is Strange (literally cannot run it with over 5fps) Fallout 4 (will not launch at all, though on this list because I have it on my PS4 and I'd like to have some freedom) I'm thinking of getting Hitman as well at some point.

Small & Light laptop under $800 with TB3

In your post, please:

Post your desired screen size, country code, and budget in your title!

USA, 13" and light preferably under $700

  • Total budget and country of purchase: $700, USA

  • Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. No preference as I have an iPad already, battery life 8+ hours

  • How important is weight and thinness to you? I have a 6 lb Lenovo Y700 which is too heavy. I want something light to carry in my backpack along with an iPad

  • Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. Windows

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. N/A but 13" tend to be lighter weight

  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. No

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? Fortnite, maybe med-high w/an eGPU

  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)? I do like to type fast 90+ WPM but no preference, would like a more solid build quality.

  • Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion. Basically something to replace my Lenovo Y700 which is too heavy and bulky to carry around. Even though it has great specs like an i7, GTX 960m, it has ~3 hour battery life which sucks and is too heavy

I was looking at the Y730 Yoga 15" at best buy for $600 but I feel like 4.2 lbs is still too heavy (I only looked at it online) meanwhile the 13" is $830..... and people are complaining about battery life on both

Basically Something that can be used in/after class for more robust tasks like flashcards, multiple tabs browsing, etc (I mainly use my iPad for notes now) and will be connected to a 24" monitor at home. I don't care about things like speaker quality, touch screen or any gimmicks

Literally just want ~8+ hour battery life, TB3 for an eGPU and to be light to carry. Thx

Weird extrusion issues

3D printing news - 5 hours 21 min ago

Hello!

I am printing on a Prusa i3 Mk3 with PLA 215C on the nozzle and 0.2mm layer height. As you can see from the images the first layer is smooth and has not extrusion issues but the second and third layer are very brittle and easily removed. What can I do that this doesn't happen. I heard to lower the layer height to below 80% of the nozzle diameter but I am using a 0.4mm nozzle. What can I do tto fix this? Any tips are greatly appreciated.

Laptop is for my partner, who has very limited technical knowledge, to be used as a general purpose machine. Her main requirements are "it looks pretty, is small (<15inch) and light". I was eyeing up this https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/enigmaVIII/ but with the SSD upgraded to 250gb however I was worried that the processor might be a bit too weak or that I'm overspending for her usecases. Ideally would like the machine to be viable for 4+ years

Why does this if statement keep triggering if it's supposed to be false?

Learn Programming - 5 hours 37 min ago

if (length != 1 || (args[0] != "1" && args[0] != "2" && args[0] != "3"))

When I run the code, I get:

length = 1

args[0] = 1

which means the if statement shouldn't be triggering since it should evaluate to False, but yet it does keep triggering ??

I Hear You Offer WiFi

Hack a Day - 5 hours 41 min ago

We are swimming in radio transmissions from all around, and if you live above the ground floor, they are coming at you from below as well. Humans do not have a sensory organ for recognizing radio signals, but we have lots of hardware which can make sense of it. The chances are good that you are looking at one such device right now. [Frank Swain] has leaped from merely accepting the omnipresent signals from WiFi routers and portable devices to listening in on them. The audio signals are mere soundwaves, so he is not listening to every tweet and email password, merely a representation of the data’s presence. There is a sample below the break, and it sounds like a Geiger counter playing PIN•BOT.

We experience only the most minuscule sliver of information coming at us at any given moment. Machines to hack that gap are not had to find on these pages so [Frank] is in good company. Magnetosensory is a popular choice for people with a poor sense of direction. Echolocation is perfect for fans of Daredevil. Delivering new sensations could be easier than ever with high-resolution tactile displays. Detect some rather intimate data with ‘SHE BON.’

Review: Founders of Gloomhaven groans beneath its own weight

Ars Technica - 5 hours 42 min ago

Enlarge

Welcome to Ars Cardboard, our weekend look at tabletop games! Check out our complete board gaming coverage at cardboard.arstechnica.com.

“In the age after the Demon War, the continent enjoys a period of prosperity. Humans have made peace with the Valrath and Inox. Quatryls and Orchids arrive from across the Misty Sea looking to trade. It is decided that a new city will be built on the eastern shores—a hub of trade and a symbol of many races working in harmony. Each race brings their own specialty to the city, and each race holds a desire for influence over the city by contributing the most to its construction.”

This, the opening paragraph of Founders of Gloomhaven’s bewilderingly dense manual, might mean something to hardcore board gamers—but to anyone who hasn’t played the original Gloomhaven, the current heavyweight champion of board gaming, it’s confusing (to say the least). As you’ll see, confusion and complexity are the order of the day with Founders.
