    YouTube will put ads on non-partner videos but won’t pay the creators

    If the video is in 4K, yep. I don't have a 4K computer monitor (165Hz 1440P). YouTube has replaced my TV subscription.

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    It is hard to cancel your Netflix subscription when you have never had one. Hell, I have never even used Netflix. Now get off my lawn!

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    I have a 1080TI that is already overkill for the games I play at 1440P 165Hz (they are old games, most are 10+ years old). At this point, I won't upgrade to a new GPU unless mine actually fails. In fact at this point, I am not upgrading anything unless it fails.

    Boeing 747s Use Floppy Disks to Get Critical Software Updates

    Do you have any idea how much it would cost to get a replacement part that had newer media designed, tested, approved and manufactured? A lot. Do you think that airlines want to spend that $$$ to upgrade something that works on an old platform? Hell no. I can guarantee the reason this is still...

    Moore’s Law Isn’t Slowing down — Just Ask System Companies

    Anyone else get an Access Denied error when trying to click on the link? Just based off the text posted above, that has nothing to do with Moore’s Law, which simply states that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles about every two years.

    Connect Home Theater Speakers Directly to Sound Card?

    So I currently have a 5.1 home theater speaker setup and a receiver that has multi-channel input (so I am effectively just using my receiver as an amp) via 3 3.5mm to RCA cables to my sound card on my PC. My 5 speakers are all 6 Ohm and I have an 80 W sub that has an RCA input. My sound card is...

    Evga Bstock - 1080ti for $500

    I got a refurb Zontac 1080Ti 11 months ago for $440 (directly from Zontac, not some 3rd party reseller and only $463.78 shipped). I don't play anything that would use RTX (nor do I plan on any time soon) so it was a no brainer for me at the time. With that $25 off code, it isn't a bad deal at all.

    Linus Torvalds Switches To AMD Ryzen Threadripper After 15 Years Of Intel Systems

    Do you people even know what an even number is? 1, 3 and 5 are not even. 0 is even though. Also 1 is less than 2. Please reread what Spectre wrote and try again. BTW the only even prime number is 2.

    TSMC now sinking asets into developing 2nm node!

    My first CPU for a system I built was the AMD Athlon Thunderbird B 1GHz. It was back in 2001. It was on the 180nm process. That is almost 2 orders of magnitude bigger than this.

    Creative releases Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus Gaming Sound Card

    I use a 5.1 speaker setup for my gaming PC and a 2.1 soundbar for my TV o_O;). My receiver for my PC doesn't have HDMI (it is from like 2008 or so) and I use multichannel input (which effectively turns my receiver into an amp only). it is amazing what you can hear with a 5.1 setup.
