    Ugly GPUs

    That time period when we were switching from AGP to PCI-E was weird and gave us abominations like this.

    Recommend an affordable 1440p 120+hz Variable Resfresh Screen?

    I have a slightly higher tier Pixio, the PX7 Prime. It's been a very nice monitor. 165Hz, 1440p, IPS, and Freesync works flawlessly with my 2080 Ti. It's not going to win any beauty contests but it does everything I need it to and quite well. It has consistently had instant coupons on Amazon...

    I am still using my iPad 2 from 2014. Are people upgrading iPads?

    I currently have an iPad Air 2 and an iPad Mini 5th generation. In most tasks the Air 2 is still fast enough but comparing it (A8X with 2GB RAM versus A12 with 3GB) it really shows its age. I figure I might sell the Air 2 and get something for it while it still carries a bit of value. As far as...

    What do you look for in a gaming mouse?

    Size is crucial for me. I have small hands (13cm from tip of my middle finger to edge of palm and 9cm across the palm) and gravitate toward smaller mice as part of that. Prior to my current Model O (which, yeah, I'm really eyeballing the O-) I used a Corsair M65 Pro RGB and a Logitech G mx518...

    iPhone 11

    I know I'm a very unique position. I have two phones. I have a Pixel 3 with Google Fi that I got at the start of the year and absolutely love. It's my first foray back into Android since a very, very negative experience with a HTC Droid Incredible (I had a dud unit that died at just under 12...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Using a Glorious Model O glossy at the moment for mouse and a KB Paradise V60 Mini with Cherry MX Clear switches. I'm very pleased with both to be honest. I still prefer clicky switches, however I irritate my husband with the clicking. I was afraid the tactile bump wouldn't be as pronounced like...

    3950X Who's waiting for it?

    I'm certainly considering the 3950X. Right now I'm content with my 2700X, but, the fact I can just drop in a 3900X or 3950X? Super tempting. I'm thinking this is going to be a bit like my 2600K system though regardless of which Ryzen 3rd gen I get. I had that from 2011 until October of last...

    Glorious Model 0

    I saw Microcenter now carries them so I went today to check them out. They had all of the colors and textures and had one box open to let you feel the mouse. I'm super happy they did as I was able to check the weight and size in person rather than estimating online. I thought about waiting for...

    What was your justification for RTX 2080 ti?

    I already had a fantastic 4K monitor, Acer Predator, and found the GTX 1070 could do it, just not as well as I wanted. I wanted the best, without paying north of $2000, and saw the EVGA was $999 on their site so I got it. I did overkill for this system with the 2080 Ti, 64GB RAM, Ryzen 7, but I...

    Logitech MX 518 w/ Hero sensor

    I loved mine. I'm currently using a Corsair M65 but if this were to pop up here, and not from a Chinese reseller, I'd pick one up. I've still not found one as comfortable for my hands as the MX518. And, yeah, I even liked the weird mid 2000s shell aesthetic.

    Arthur C. Clarke Predicted a Computer Would Fit on a Desk in 1974

    The first wartime submersible was roughly 50 years before Jules Verne was even born, the Turtle.

    Rumor: Sony Could Be Considering a PlayStation Classic

    But will you have to flip it over upside down to play games like the real thing?

    Dubai Deploys First Robotic Police Officer

    It's what happens when a country has so much money they literally just blow a few million on whatever they feel like because they have the money to do so. All the more reason to avoid Dubai. Especially with the plan for 3 meter tall robocops with humans inside zipping around at 80 kph.

    Fallout 4's 58GB High-Resolution Texture Pack Is out Now on PC

    I figure I'll try this out when I finally upgrade. My GTX 970 has the power just fine, it's the memory that is lacking for these newer games and their higher resolution textures.

    BioWare Releases Mass Effect: Andromeda Character Kits

    I think part of why it felt like such a gut-punch with ME3 was you were able to fully flesh out a character that you became intimately involved with over the series. Shepard wasn't just another action hero, they were the culmination of your choices throughout the hundreds of hours you lead them...
