The 1060 is faster the 480 in old games. However newer games will use technologies like asynchronous DX12 and Vulkan. Ashes of the Singularity and Hitman are good examples of the former, and the Vulkan build of Doom is a good example of the latter.

The 480 is faster than the 1060 in those 3 games. Doom/Vulkan is a *lot* faster on the 480.

If you read the Napster business plan from 2001, it seems very similar to that of Spotify: $10 for unlimited music streams. If they would have jumped on board everybody would be using it and the studios would be making money hand over fist.

Instead most people listen to their music on Youtube or ad-supported Spotify, which pays a pittance compared to the paid Spotify.

"I do not care, I only listen to the good stuff which is usually at least ten years old but more often older."

You're falling prey to Sturgeon's law: "90% of everything is crap". It's just that with the old stuff, the crap has been rightfully forgotten. There's lots of good new music, you just need to find a good way to filter out the crap.

This change makes me feel a lot better about my Scribd subscription, it gives me confidence that the service is sustainable. It's still a good deal, I'm definitely part of the 97% that read fewer than 3 books per month. Buying 2-3 books a month would definitely cost me a lot more than $90/year.

I felt the same way after my ISP switched from unlimited to 400GB per month. I'm no longer paying for those leechers that use several TB per month.

If somebody has access to your phone, they have access to your email. If they have access to your email they have access to all your accounts since they can reset the passwords quite easily.

So make sure you have a secure lock screen on that phone to turn it into two-factor auth.
