5 Things You Should Know – Part 293

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. Chase Bank just merged with another bank and the company will waive your right to take them to court unless you mail them a rejection letter.

As the result of a bank merger, Chase Bank is now requiring all its credit card holders to accept a waiver of your right to take a claim against them to court.

You can reject this, but you have to mail it into them.

2. radio.garden is a site (and app) that lets you tune into thousands of live radio stations from all around the world using only an internet connection.

3. You don’t need a 4k screen to appreciate 4k content.

When watching online videos in 1080p on a 1080p panel, not every pixel from the original file is perfectly translated 1:1 to the pixels on your screen, there is some un precision, some margin which leads to some blurriness.

(unlike in video games, where each frame is generated by your GPU so each pixel is “perfectly filled”, nothing is located in between two pixels).

This means that if you set the video quality to a resolution higher than your monitor’s, you’ll be using a file containing more information to fill in that “margin”, the extra pixels from the file will be used to more precisely place each bit of information onto each individual pixel.

It’ll still be 1080p, but a much crisper 1080p, actual 1080p.

4. You can lower the brightness of your iPhone past below its light bar.

This is a great way to prevent your eyes from straining for anyone who is on their phone at night or in the dark. The lowest lighting setting doesn’t always do the job, and using a filter in the iPhones own settings can dim the screen more.

5. You can look up your doctors to see if they’re getting monetary incentives for pushing medications onto you.
