I use my RPi 4 with 8GB of RAM for light daily tasks like listen to internet radios, stay in contact with messengers without the struggle of typing on virtual keyboards, and so on. Of course, also to mess around a bit with Linux from time to time. With a good monitor and sound system is just wonderful. I have my music and still can chat comfortably whatever I'm doing on my work computer: keeping it very busy with a large database or rebooting or something. Plus, gives me the feeling of separation between the real work and the ambiance and the plans for lunch.
I appreciate the most that the Raspberry makes no noise (I use it without a fan, just passive cooling) and it's fast enough for those tasks to keep me happy.
Hi @LoisNelson !
In the Deezer app, the "Music" section is mainly separated in two different kind of "playlists":
Made for you:
"flow": automatic playlist which is trying to mix some of your favorites with other songs it thinks you could like. It is designed as the "one easy click" way of starting to listen to something when you don't know what to listen ^^ The algorithm is mainly based on your favorites (tracks, artists, albums), or on the contrary the tracks you have marked as "not happy with", and the favorites of other people who tend to listen to the same thing as you...
"daily" mixes: a bit like the flow, but inspired by specific artists, if you want a more specific mood / ambiance. Selected artists change every day, and tend to be the one you've listened to lately.
"discovery": playlist created every week with songs Deezer thinks you don't know but you could like
and some other automatic playlists based on the current time / day, but adapted to your taste (at least the algorithm is trying to).
Other playlist recommendations like by genre, recommended playlists, selections, etc...
The "made for you" section are selections automatically made to fit to your tastes, using an algorithm.
On the contrary, the other playlists are mainly manually edited and updated
There are also a lot of other cool stuff, like new releases on artists you like, podcasts or even radios.
Last advice: don't hesitate to mark a track you like as a favorite: the more you do that, the more the "flow" feature and other recommandation will be precise 😉
@Pesala The "mugs who fall for this" are on a different page to the FAQ. I wasn't inviting ridicule of those individuals, just the insane scifi psudo-science in the FAQs which tries to establish the authenticity of how the system works.
@kurai Yes, I am very excited about the Cosmo as well. I have ordered two of them so far. I love my Gemini, but I always felt that things could be improved a lot by adding a few details and it seems like most of my requests are in the Cosmo:
2nd screen on the outside, so you can use it as a phone without having to open it. Makes it a lot more like the Nokia Communicator. I used the Nokia 9210 for years. It was the first device mobile phone Opera shipped on and just a great device.
Improved mobile modem and improved wireless in general.
Built in decent camera.
The overall software is also just improving a lot and there are a lot more Gemini software built in. I am very impressed with what this small team has managed to do!
I expect this to become my default phone when it is ready.
A little bit of reasoning for my requirements :-
• Touchscreen, I only want for increasing my productivity
I think that reading PDFs & making notes from it is easier when u have a touchscreen. And so is the case with online practice tests on, say KhanAcademy.
• I am confused with Storage and Graphics Card only because I think that I won't be able to get any good of these with a touchscreen laptop at this price point.
Else its straight away 1 TB HDD with 2 GB AMD graphics card (cheap and best 😂😂)
@ayespy because being assimilated into the Samsung Borg is more fun? 😋
For me, I have a OnePlus 6 right now. In terms of features it is very much comparable to the latest Samsung phones, and it's:
half the price
Stock Android without the Samsung custom interface
Without crapware that gets pre installed on Samsung.
I would recommend it.
