    Windows 10 New Start Button redesign

    Windows 95,98,ME,2000,XP, Vista were good start menus. At Windows 7 you had to click extra clicks to open up more menus because everything was collapsed. After 7 it went downhill. I liked the Windows XP start menu the most. The old menu was more structured and required less clicks to load a...

    Another data “accident” at Facebook

    Too many privacy and spying problems with Facebook. Same with Google. Censorship is happening on a massive level also on all these social media and video platforms. Your security, privacy, and free speech are all being violated at the same time. Who knows what else has been leaked. All those...

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    There's a lot of content that is being blackholed and even deleted. Some content is pushed back many pages. Youtube for example has authoritative sources listed first which is a very subjective and controversial matter in itself. Any controversial content even for non political stuff is messed...

    What is the recommended amount of RAM these days?

    64GB or higher is great for heavy users. The more the better. I had 32GB for years and i was always maxing it out with tons of browser tabs open. If you have adblockers and addons those eat a lot of memory also. Really the more memory you can get the better in the long run and the short term ;)

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    Google is censoring searches and content too much these days. Anything not inline with the mainstream is censored. Any free thinking or speculation about controversial topics is shutdown on their platforms like Youtube. Google use to be a company with a great reputation. Now it's a shadow of its...

    Amazon Is Developing a Game Streaming Service

    At some point everyone is going to stream everything. We are all going to live in the cloud eventually. I bet at some point our own windows installations will be hosted at Microsoft themselves in their cloud. We will just boot into the cloud. That is the future. Subscriptions. Micro charges...

    USB-C Audio Is "Dead"

    The headphone jack is time tested and mother approved. It will last another 15 to 20 years at least. The headphone jack gives you more flexibility on what kind of headset or earbuds you want to use anyways.

    Study of Cellphone Risks Finds "Some Evidence" of Link to Cancer, at Least in Male Rats

    Just gotta watch out. Some places show a bunch of birds and certain animals dropping dead from 5g test setups. Not sure about the credibility on everything. Just gotta keep the phone away from your main organs to be safe. Don't leave it on in your pocket too long unless you want to be sterile.

    Most of those fake accounts are bots used to make people artificially famous and popular. There are services out there for this kind of social engineering.

    Microsoft Quietly Cuts Off Windows 7 Support for Older Intel Computers

    Windows 7 is still usable with an Athlon XP if you have a decent video card with 2-3GB of ram. Windows 7 is the last one to be able to run on non SSE2 cpus i think. I got the latest Linux Mint to work with an Athlon XP system and it seems to work just fine. You just need to install custom build...

    Ubisoft Believes Next Gen Is the Last for Consoles

    The problem with streaming is the cost of running those machines on the other end. People will be paying by the minute most likely. Everyone will be nickel and dime'd. Either by the minute or a straight yearly subscription not including the games you have to buy also. It might cost everyone more...
