Looks good but I am wary of Xiaomi. Can't trust them to not just suddenly start pushing ads on it in future.

Even then, the kid's parents won't go for Xiaomi, anti-china and all.

 

Hmm. Got it. They dont push ads on the Mi Notebook though from what I know. Even if they do, its a windows device and you can easily uninstall any preinstalled software.

 

 

I still don't understand the anti China sentiment wrt to buying products. You effing cant buy any gadget in today's world without it being linked to China.

True, I personally don't care about it but they do. They are okay with a product being manufactured in China but not by a wholly owned chinese company.

 

Anyway, will look at offerings from HP and Acer.

Also, guys are password managers like Bitwarden reliable and safe to store all our passwords? Any recommendations for the same?

Did you manage to finalize anything?  I started using Dashlane and got their yearly membership. Seem it is very highly rated and priced well for its subscription.  So far no complaints apart from their hit or miss auto fill functionality. 

 

I was hesitant at first but given that almost all bank logins have 2FA , I took the plunge into using the password manager.

I saw it first hand on how important it is to pass on such important info , if something untoward happens and with this method, you only need to pass on one login password.

Nothing yet, didn't research further. I am still scared about password managers lol even though everywhere I've read it has said that it is completely safe.

How much is the yearly membership for dashlane?

There are couple of weird blurry lines on my samsung led tv screen.

One line has been there for a few months, another one developed just a couple of days ago.

 

What could be the issue and how much would it cost to fix this? 

Will this keep getting worse in time? I don't mind using it as is, if it costs a lot to fix.

 

Its over 2+ years, so no warranty

model: samsung 43" NU7100

I've been using the kaspersky password manager that was part of the Kaspersky Total Security plan. Does the job reasonably well. Syncs across my PC and phone app.

Surprisingly cheap in INR compared to USD. I think i got the family plan for 750  (Annual).

 

I was also skeptical so didn't save banking related passwords initially, but started doing so later on after reading about how they store the passwords.

Why aren't you using Google passwords? 

This one also supports in-app password entry. Not just chrome. So even in android apps, it can do auto fill.

 

Also google already knows too much about me. Didn't want to keep all eggs in one basket.

I use a Galaxy Watch 3 and its pretty good when it comes to fitness tracking. However, only downside is the 1.5 day battery life but have gotten used to it and doesn't hamper day-to-day activities. GW4 is out as well with the new WearOS but the pricing is yet to be out, probably will be close to 40k(for the classic version) and maybe around 30k for the regular one.

GW3 is extremely comfortable to wear though, especially with a silicon band. There is also the Galaxy Active 2 which was around 17k afaik.

The prices and dates are out. I'm eyeing the 44mm normal GW4 (not classic) which retails at 27k. I can get it for ~12k (saved Amazon Vouchers). Good deal or no?

Haven't seen the reviews yet of it tbh but for 12k, its a no brainer tbh. The price is amazing for the watch. Although this is just solely going on the price and my experience with the Watch 3, haven't read about the GW4 much, nor seen any video reviews yet of it. But the price is too good.

Yeah, I must have seen about 10 reviews by now. The watch is good, though some things I will have to get used to soon (like charging every 1.5 days compared tomy fitbit's 3 times in 14 days).

My entry price fell further since I got some more vouchers from CC points redempition. Now the cost is similar to a Dualsense controller :wOOtjumpy:

 

I'll be ordering this today for delivery on launch (~10 Sept)

 

Edit: Ordered the silver 44mm one :dance:

Bitwarden is superb from my usage, never had a problem with it once. It's free, and it's open source with even a self-hosting feature.
