    SimCity V (2013) - screens/artwork and information

    Your joking right? SimCity is NOT played on some other server running it. It has Always-On DRM meaning you cant play offline. I can guarantee you it is running on your actual PC not something in the cloud. That is also the reason people are so pissed, they have the files, they have the hardware...

    Megaupload Shutdown Boosted Digital Movie Revenues

    Eh... Some crucial info is missing, like funded by and they refer to digital but some could be from physical sales moving to digital etc. Also 2 studios seems to be a bit of a small sample size if you ask me.

    Razer Mouse Requires Always-On Internet Connection?

    In case this was missed, if/when they stop the legacy drivers you will have to use the always on ones that (may) spy on you.

    Apple Files Anti-Theft Patent

    Hahahah that's a good one. I cant imagine how they would detect this so called "theft-like movement". Now with that iTicket, what if you forgot to turn your phone off on a plane? Or a subway? Since Maps has no clue where you are....

    Kansas City Residents Slow to Sign Up for Google Fiber

    You don't need the $300 upfront, its either $300 upfront OR $25 a month for 1 year. Its true that Troost is the dividing line and your right, they have rims and this and that but, the ones that truly are struggling to pay their bills don't care about the internet at home due to a likely...

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    Roflmao, PSUs are nothing, that PSU that zapped you must have had issues, since as said that's a heatsink. I don't even know how many CRTs and PSUs I have opened and fooled with. One psu needed a fan, it later blew its cheap as heck caps in it so then I replaced the caps in it. Matter of fact, I...

    Tested: Google Search Gets B+, Siri Gets a D

    Errr........ IDK who is smoking what but android has had voice actions for awhile so why didn't they compare the two? Only difference is android doesn't talk back. In response to previous reply, they seemed to have chosen not to compare the two which would be about as close to apples to apples...

    RIAA: Google Doesn't Do Enough To Fight Piracy

    Too true, gee I wonder why Google LIMITS the number of requests? Maybe because that means SOMEONE (or multiple people) has to review them and/or the process is not fully automated and Google doesn't want to spend millions policing links that SHOULDNT be their problem, if its a problem take it up...

    Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 1850rpm fans - $14.81ea + $6 flat rate shipping

    >.> I just spent the same on 6 deltas that are 25mm and have better pressure so I would love to hear how these are still better than the Delta FFB1212EH. I am gonna use a fan controller to slow em down and at the speed I will have em I should only need 3 and it should be around 2x an AP-15s...

    Cant Enable SLI >.<

    IIRC, the only fix for my 275s was the SLI Patch worked great on my M4A79XTD EVO and my P8P67 PRO Try it and it should take care of the issues, you can find it here: SLI Patch

    Why do you hate Apple? (intelligent discussion)

    ....... Why is your library so MASSIVE? I have just about all of the music I like in mine and its tiny, only a few thousand.

    Why do you hate Apple? (intelligent discussion)

    Hmm, don't seem to have any "responsiveness" issues and I use it almost exclusively for music, WMP w/ Mega Codec Pack for ALL video. iTunes due to the iPod but less complicated than having multiple players for crap.

    Asus P8P67 1x PCI-E slot won't work

    The bottom x16 slot is electrically x4 and x1 lane wise by default. In the UEFI if you enable it you can make it full x4 but you lose eSata, front panel USB 3.0 and something else that I cant recall so, IMHO not worth it.

    Why do you hate Apple? (intelligent discussion)

    I had to use them in a graphics design class and it sucked because they were OLD. Most were Power Mac G4s, some were Power Mac G5s and only 1 row (1 row = ~10 PCs) was newer. They were Mac Pros, which were 2x Dual core Xeons (luckily I worked on one of these) but they were so horribly slow due...
