    Android: Blocking or muting notifications while on a video call?

    I have a Samsung phone and am somewhat new to android. I find when I am doing job interviews on MS Teams or Google Meet, that I occasionally get messages or alerts that interrupt the meeting. Is there a way to block or mute all messages and notifications just before or while I'm waiting to...

    Best 27-32" Productivity Monitor [edit: 1440p only]

    Sorry, my bad. It was late at night and for some reason I was reading the spec 144 Hz as 1440p. Anyway, the Asus ProArt PA279CV should be okay, but I was reading some negative reviews about it on Amazon, especially about issues with the USB-C connector, as well as poor customer service. If you...

    Best 27-32" Productivity Monitor [edit: 1440p only]

    If you want to really zoom in on images, occasionally look at large photo files, or do any kind of photoshop type work, 4K can be really helpful. If not, then you probably don't need it. If you go with 4K, the scaling only affects the OS system GUI and fonts. Almost all apps and programs have...

    Poll: Which motherboard has the best UEFI menu?

    Interesting that the Asus and ASRock GUIs look similar, and the Gigabyte and MSI GUIs look similar. To my eyes, the Gigabyte seems a little easier to read, with the text layout being a bit more spaced out and clearer. Which do you prefer aesthetically?

    Question for anyone with a 27" 4K monitor

    I know someone with a 32" 4K monitor and he scales at only 125%. I was thinking that therefore a 27" 4K might need a lot more scaling because of the much smaller screen size. But from the responses here it seems that only 25% more scaling is required for most people. Interesting. Thanks.

    Question for anyone with a 27" 4K monitor

    What do you set your display system scaling % at to make things more readable? - native resolution? - 125% - 150% - 200% I'm just trying to get an idea of whether you can get more usable real estate with a 27" 4K or a 32" 4K after factoring in scaling.

    Alternatives to Adobe Acrobat Pro?

    My version of Adobe Acrobat XI Pro is getting rather old and now that Acrobat has gone completely to a subscription model, it's too expensive. I use Acrobat mainly to do OCR and scanning of PDFs. I like some of the advanced features as well found only in the Pro version. Are there any cheap or...

    Video stuttering in Firefox

    Yeah, thanks. It makes me wonder if Firefox is doing something different with older codecs.

    Video stuttering in Firefox

    No, didn't work. I wasn't having problems with youtube anyway, just videos embedded in websites.

    Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset integrated graphics (circa 2009). Driver has been updated or no new driver available.

    It happens right from boot up.

    Video stuttering in Firefox

    There is no video problem with Brave, Chrome, or Edge, so I don't think it's a driver issue. The only extension I use is Ublock Origin.
