    America and Canada Ground All Boeing 737 MAX Planes

    Am I reading that right? The solution is to install the once optional blinky light that says "Maybe sensor fault, MCAS will now try to crash the plane. Good luck in the next 18 seconds pilot"

    Thanks for reminding about the Facebook aspect. Makes it a big fat no for me.

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    I can understand the cost save of putting the tracker in the HMD as 2 cameras but you would think Microsoft could have bothered to make their standard extensible by adding external camera bases or light houses to augment. But hey they called it mixed reality when it doesn't even do that so.....

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    So 6 months and it will be half price in the Microsoft store like its failed predecessor? Microsoft just cant encourage them to burn $$$ fast enough on mixed (but not really) reality.

    All Myspace Data Before 2016 is Gone

    Can you imagine being the IT "lifer" at MySpace and looking for a new job? "I see you've been working at MySpace for the past 15 years" Probably better to just leave a 15 year resume hole...

    I guarantee one of the designers has a Bubblegum Crisis Motoslave toy sitting on their desk.

    JPMorgan Chase Uses AI Powered Video Game as a Recruitment Tool

    "sometimes you might need to hire impulsive inattentive @ssholes" Instead of just using your eyes and ears you can pay us big $$$$ to identify that through a cheesy game.

    Displayport MST hub prices are stupid.

    That would probably be a draw at best and piss off the endpoint/desktop people in the process. I'll just get a $50 to $90 video card. P.S. even the cheapest Ultrasharp 24 is missing DP out for daisy chain

    Displayport MST hub prices are stupid.

    Looked like a lot of out of stock or only refurbs left at monoprice. Maybe the expectation is if you want that functionality you get a Ultrasharp class monitor with pass-through so there is no longer a market? Doesn't help us in cubes who get the penny pinched "standard" screens. Oh well I'll...

    Displayport MST hub prices are stupid.

    We buy the "P" series (AKA the cheaper ones)

    Displayport MST hub prices are stupid.

    One is a 4K TV and the others are Dell LCD's that don't have daisy chain ports.

    The Latest Battlefield V: Firestorm Reveal Trailer Details Battle Royale Mode

    I'd be sort of excited if it was free and their eco system was not chalk full of hardcore cheaters.

    Displayport MST hub prices are stupid.

    Looking at a MST hub for work since Dell dropped one of the three outputs on the new optiplex (7060) Conclusion: It's more cost effective to buy a whole extra low profile PCIe video card than it is to get a Displayport MST hub...

    America and Canada Ground All Boeing 737 MAX Planes

    This is what you get when the software is coded out of a boiler room offshore and tested on a 6AM to 8AM time zone overlap with the US engineers who haven't even had a coffee and Palash, Ajay, and Rakesh sound like they are on the other end of a black hole thanks to skype on a good day and on a...

    Doom: Annihilation Gets a Trailer

    Wow that budget production quality. Nearly the level of "dude the factory I work at is closed over the weekend, grab all your sci-fi/horror LARPing gear and meet me there tonight."
