Android 10 has been fine for me. What's the problem with your phone?

the sound volume on calls is so low I can darely hear anything, I have to put it on speaker just to hear but if theres any background noise like in a shop I cant hear a thing. Every other sound works, streaming radio is fine, youtube vids are find, my brother used the facebook mesanger to speack to me & that worked, the ringtone sounds perfectly fine at the volume I set it to its just calls that are totally buggered even when tured to max volume

My old phone was acting up, so I got a Moto G8 Power. Nothing super high-end, but very good for the price.

I have a USB microscope which is 1000 magnification. It is fucking awesome I can see in my own skin cells and have 1 million ideas of things to look at. I will post some images on here some time.

Seriously though I am open to ideas for microscopy. Maximum magnification is 1000x.

a random old timey photo.
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

So, I really didn’t need a new computer, but Micro Center had a deal that I just couldn’t resist.

10th gen i9 10850k
Asus Prime Z490-A motherboard

A bundle for $550. That’s less than I paid for my i5/Gigabyte bundle I bought two years ago.
