    Netflix working on live action Dragon's Lair movie

    I hated that "game". It was just playing back video clips. Move the wrong way, you die. Based on laser disc, so in between motion sequences, was a brief interruption. Horrible "game", imho.

    Slightly Mad Studios Reveals the Final Design of the Mad Box

    How do you announce the box 3 years ahead of time? If it's 3 years, then you obviously haven't designed the actual equipment yet.

    Google Says It Is Discontinuing the Chromecast Audio

    Idiots! I have 4. I've got them connected to old a/v receivers in 4 different areas of the house. I can walk from one to room to the other and they play seamless in unison.

    Intel i7 9700K and i9 9900K Leaks Showcase “Insane” Core Turbo Speeds

    I love competition from AMD.

    Latency: Why Typing on Old Computers Just Feels Better

    Amen. I get enough of this shit on facebook, various news websites, don't need it here. As if by some chance someone hasn't heard about global warming/climate change whatever, and we need to read about it on our computer geek websites, because we were too busy putting our gaming rig together to...
