    What do you do when all of the UWIR members are busy in real life and can't write this week's UWIR? You resurrect the deado_O. This thread is written by the now dead forum troll @SJBoss. But I wonder, "Why did he even"! I ended up correcting it so much, I might as well have written it from scratch

    Welcome to another Episode of "Why are we even?" or was it Week In Review? I lost the track because with each passing day (week?) we talk less and less about technology and more about how genius people that reside here are, and sometimes even the people who run this thing.
    This week is no different, So folks buckle up this is going to be a bumpy ride:rolleyes: and let's just
    [​IMG]

    So, usually this thread consists of news about the forum stuff, something about the outside world and genius of the week.
    But today, it's all geniuses (well, mostly) and you get to pick the winner! Exciting, innit?

    We do have a few interesting news and things to talk about so let's get those out of the way first:

    Qualcomm and Intel are Partners (Spoiler: they're not :rolleyes:)
    There was an article on XDA about how Intel might be building next gen chips for Qualcomm in near future and then there was more explanation how they might not and that's it, basically a clickbait.
    @CosmicPaladin talks in detail about this business transaction between Intel and Qualcomm in his well written thread. Do give it a read.

    DIY Laptops but you still can't change the important parts yourself
    There was an article on XDA about how Intel might be building next gen chips for Qualcomm in near future and then there was more explanation how they might not and that's it, basically a clickbait. The Next thing is DIY Laptops from a Company called Frame Work computers. They'll let you choose and customise almost every aspect of the Laptop but for the processor you still have to change the mobo. Still considering how laptop market is It's a step in a right direction.

    No "T" this year?o_O
    If "Twitter News" has to be believed, We might not see a T version of OnePlus's big duo this year. According to Twitter user Max Jambor, OnePlus won't be releasing the T variant this year for some reasons which is kinda surprising. Thoughts?

    Note 7... Is that you?
    OnePlus had a blast launching Nord 2 5G powered by Dimensity 1200 AI (that's all of it, innit?:rolleyes:) last month but that didn't stop there, some users are having a blast after buying the device. Curious?
    According to this guy, allegedly, his wife's brand new Nord 2 went full Note 7 (means it exploded you illiterates:rolleyes:) while she was out for cycling and due to this she met with an accident. What unfortunate turn of events! OnePlus is yet to comment on this. But we all know how it goes.

    Edit: Apparently, the tweet has been deleted, twice! But I'm a genius myself. Here is the screenshot. Why the poster delete it, no one knows. But one can speculate. Either he faked it as spontaneous combustion or OnePlus paid him off. It's up to you guys to make a decision.

    GENIUSES OF THE WEEK

    Storeception?o_O
    Have you downloaded the OnePlus Store App? Yes? Check again! Apparently, That's what happening to one of the OnePlus user even though he already downloaded the OnePlus Store App (I believe he had his reasons:rolleyes:) he still get notifications to download it. the fun part is, he gets that notification inside the App itself:rolleyes: That's some next level PR stuff.
    Maybe they want you to install another store App in the parallel, Since Color OS lite has that built in? or they're having a laugh about it.

    China is coming to get you! or not:rolleyes:
    Remember the time when we used to share gifs of trump blaming "CHINA!" for almost anything? Yea, well that's the case with every proud "Indian" (there aren't much, don't worry:rolleyes:) now, thanks to Mr. Moody.
    This guy wanted to know if China was doing any shady buisness through OnePlus products and he wants to talk to the Top dawgs only, not some trolls like @Tobikage or @sfomin :rolleyes:
    It's funny how everyone is only suspicious about Chinese products when it comes to online privacy and while it might be true to some extent, it doesn't mean you can just ignore everyone else.

    Become a Walking Billboard!
    Yes!! You heard it right!! Wanna be a walking Nord 2 "5G" spec sheet? OnePlus got you covered! You can win a spec sheet T shirt in the raffles and walk around like a OnePlus billboard fan, and the best part is... wait for it... You don't get paid for the free marketing they get!!

    The future is here! Well, almost : Brace yourself!
    The next revolution in technology is just one step reply away. This guy has some extra ordinary Inventions that might change course of reality or bend space and time for all we know, since his "Inventions" are still a mystery and he'd only share it with one person, Pete Lau. And that's why, his Inventions may never see light of the day, sigh. Another Tesla wasted.

    "Tampered" Screen Protector
    That's not a complaint which in itself is very unusual and fascinating at the same time. This user wants his screen protector to be tampered with and his requests only get more bizzare from here. Looking at OnePlus' record, his request might not be that unusual, since one of the user's "Brand new" 8T was not that brand new, apparently. So there's a chance his request may be fulfilled.

    That is all, have you decided yet who deserves the title of Genius of The Week more than the others? If you haven't, go on debate in the replies and brawl until we have a winner or you're all dead:rolleyes:

    The End
    You know the rest, tag one of the guys, @B_Wrath @BobbyV8_ @Tokolozi @McJader @Shivang Joshi (still MIA, or is he KIA?o_O), if and when you see something worthy or interesting enough to be included here. Adios! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand It's gone.

    So this means less ' OnePlus cheated us threads ' ;)
    T devices are great, I was really disappointed when they not launched a " Nord T " and now no 9T 😏:smirk:

    And thanks for all the Genius of the week :cool:

    Thanks again for the UWIR :)

    Thanks again for my Sunday read. Can’t really decide for GOTW, tempted to choose the “China dude”, partially because he has difficulty reading or at least understanding.

    True!
    The 'Chinese Spyware guy' was only interested in the opinion from genuine users and experts!
    He is my GOTW.

    Thanks @B_Wrath for this edition of UWIR.🤗

    I do not like the polls here. Kunti never differentiate amongst her 5 Pandava Sons, how in this damn world, you did not allow Multiple options in the poll.

    Note 7 tweet is no longer available, I guess the tweet is deleted by some secret agents of the country?

    True

    But now the tweet is gone, I guess OnePlus won't comment on the incident?
