    World Wide Web creator, Tim Berners-Lee, sad to see his invention being used for evil, hatches plan to take it back

    companies around using your stuff without your consent. you are giving it to them by using their stuff. nearly everything running on software is just licensed to you and in using it you have agreed to give them everything they want. privacy only exists when all parties involved in the...

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    Microcenter gets stock of the good stuff every now and then. they dont sell these high demand things online so it's harder for bots to do anything about it . if best buy cared about their customers, they'd do the same, only sell these high demand items physically in store then nvidia could...

    MSI & ASUS Prep Up AMD AGESA 1.2.0.0 BIOS Firmware For 500 & 400 Series Motherboards, Improved Ryzen CPU Compatibility & More

    motherboards just have to get you to the OS handoff. writing the OS for them is probably not something any manufacturer is going to invest much time into and I'm not sure that's where i'd want a lot of money going as a customer. If they're doing their job right, I should basically not spend...

    "Nehalem" Lead Architect Rejoins Intel to Work on New High-Performance Architecture

    it'll be nice when some day in the distant future intel can sell their cpu's on the merit of them and not thru backroom deals and anti-competitive practices limiting how oems can utilize and market other manufacturer's chips.

    Scientists Develop an Efficient Way to Produce Low-Cost Heatsinks

    Yes, i do my own car work down to the engine block so long as the job doesn't require some special tool that doesn't make sense to purchase for a one-off. A metal intake transmits the heat it is absorbing from the block and surrounding engine compartment air to the cooler air flowing inside...

    Scientists Develop an Efficient Way to Produce Low-Cost Heatsinks

    Why? composite intake manifolds keep your intake air cooler by acting as an insulator without stupid aftermarket "spacers" - they're lighter and cheaper to produce.

    Scalper group says it has ‘no regrets’ over reselling 3,500 Playstation 5 consoles

    Scalping via bots for anything deserves prison sentences. Though, the people paying the scalpers for something like a ps5 or other item that is still being manufactured and sold by the company making them are almost as bad. The lack of patience is insane and basically delaying launch dates for...

    the whole end of x86 writing has been on the wall is something people have have said since the days of the movie Hackers and powerPC architecture. And we see how that writing stuck. Anyone trying to kill x86 only seems to be able to write with magic markers.
