    Wanted: Hundreds of Entrepreneurs to Start Businesses Delivering Amazon Packages

    Your drivers will have to use an Amazon leased and labeled van, your "employees" are going to have amazon labeled uniforms. They also are going to be supposedly helping with finance, fueling and insurance costs as well as business training. Do you honestly believe they arent going to tie you...

    Wanted: Hundreds of Entrepreneurs to Start Businesses Delivering Amazon Packages

    If amazon thought they could save money over the usps or fedex by buying vehicles and paying the drivers themselves, they would have already done it. If you think about it, the real screwing comes in as you are essentially tied to the company, but not an employee and arent covered by any labor...

    Convince me to keep the faith for a Ryzen cpu...

    If your mainly using your machine for gaming, i myself would probably go with the Intel i7 8700 and a midrange z370 board. The non k version should be a bit over $300 when it becomes available sometime in the next month or so. Going with the non K part you can get away with a much cheaper...

    Gambler Hits $1.4M Jackpot, Casino Says Bingo Machine “Malfunctioned”

    All the casinos have the no payout due to malfunction clause, however in this case what bothers me is they didnt have to prove the machine actually malfunctioned. The feds simply shielded them from the lawsuit entirely. That pretty much tells me they are scamming the guy. We have a bunch of...

    [H]OT DEAL: Acer Recertified Monitors Back In Stock (X34 Predator $730, XR341CK $600 and more)

    Just a quick long term update, I bought an x34 last summer (2016) from acer recertified. It had roughly 40 hours on when it arrived and it had/has some backlight bleed on the corners but for the price i paid im not complaining. Still going strong a year later, no issues or complaints on it.

    How are you guys liking your X299 CPU's/systems?

    Does anyone know if theres some updated gaming benchmarks for the 7800x now that the early bios issues have been fixed to a degree. Almost all the early reviews I saw were pretty disappointing, showed it losing handily to the 7700k but most of those were done in the first week of release.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Ah well, I was hoping we would have a release date on the desktop parts but I was prepared to be disappointed. If i had to guess now, I would think October or November at the earliest to give retailers time to move out as much of the remaining kaby lake inventory as possible. Gives me a few...

    Arozzi Vernazza Gaming Chair Review @ [H]

    I sat in the boss and owned the classic (which is just a smaller version of the boss) for a few weeks, their office chairs use a stiffer foam than the racing chairs and I just couldnt get used to it. I am lucky enough to live close to their Michigan showroom so i was able to actually sit in...

    Elon Musk's Plan to Power the US on Solar Energy

    Well as Chariman of Solarcity I expect nothing less from the guy, even if it is all snake oil. Of course he would love to be the one to sell you that 100 miles of panels, paid for most likely by you the taxpayer. My guess is Trump pulling out of the Paris accords has him worried here in the...

    Classic Edition Super NES with 21 Games

    I can't see spending the money on it to be honest. I was hoping we would get a switch virtual console announcement over E3 but still nothing from Nintendo. As badly as everyone trashed the wii-u, it was great being able to play older snes and N64 titles on the tablet and have an entire store...

    Wall Street Cheers Replacement of Cashiers with Digital Kiosks

    There has been a job transition but it hasn't been an entirely positive one, at least here in the states. When you start looking at all the big Midwestern cities/states/counties that used to manufacture stuff back in the day you notice that some of the biggest employers now are in the public...

    Wall Street Cheers Replacement of Cashiers with Digital Kiosks

    Its interesting to read all the viewpoints on the left/right and socialist/capitalist sides of the aisle on this. I myself get why a business needs to keep costs under control, but the ongoing elimination of direct human interaction to me isnt a good thing in our society. The next 10 to 20...

    Wall Street Cheers Replacement of Cashiers with Digital Kiosks

    I've never been a fan of the damn kiosks anywhere they install them. I like to interact with people not keypads. I figured this was going to happen though with the whole push for a $15 living wage making its way through the service industry.

    Intel Core i9-7900X CPU Reviews

    I get it, the 7900x is the big flagship product so its getting most of the press, but why all the 7740x reviews and almost nothing on the 7800x and 7820x. I find it hard to believe people are more interested in a rebadged 7700k rather than the new 6 and 8 core parts. Those 2 are going to be...

    MSI VR ONE - Wireless VR Backpack Review @ [H]

    I just dont see much value in this. I get people want to have a wireless vr setup but a solution involving game streaming seems to me to be the way to go rather than strap a whole pc on my back.
