    The Amazon Prime Air Team Is Developing a Traffic Management System for Drones

    There is no way on Earth I'll put up with the noise from delivery drones. The day a local government greenlights this crap is the day I get armed to take them down.

    773 Million Records from Massive Data Breach Uploaded to Have I Been Pwned

    I've had the same email account since 1997, I'm not surprised I'm on the list. I guess changing passwords every....5 years or so is good enough, right? :p

    How Much of the Internet Is Fake? Turns Out, a Lot of It, Actually.

    I've been saying this for like 10 years. As far as I can see, Google and the greater internet is and has always been built on a house of cards. There are a lot of forces that need the willful ignorance to continue. If the advertisers realized their billions aren't doing what they think it is...

    Google Allows Apps to Scan Gmail Accounts and Freely Share Data with Others

    I don't even have a Gmail account but link my Outlook email in the app on my Android phone. I was surprised when I opened up the never-used calendar app ony phone and it has all of the ETA dates of packages I'm expecting, date set for my flights, etc. I had no idea the Google calendar app was...

    NVIDIA GPU Generational Performance Part 1 @ [H]

    I refer to my purchase of a gtx780 as the worst PC component purchase I've ever made. As you point out, it was eclipsed in short order by games as well as Nvidia, seems to have had poor driver optimization support, and it cost more than the next 2 generation's cards.

    Samba Interactive TV is Watching YOU

    Funny I just got a new Sony TV and took delivery and set it up yesterday and also did air quotes when I read "cleverly recognizing onscreen content". That was a big Nope from me and I denied the app access. Now I want to get into the service menu and just delete the thing.

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    I'm an audiophile and have almost 2,000 CDs. I tried Spotify premium and Tidal's lossless streaming and they really are quite good. Tidal had better quality than Spotify and Spotify was only a smidge behind the flacs of my ripped albums. The only real downside to the streaming services is they...

    Theaters Add Strobe Light Warning to “Incredibles 2” after Epilepsy Concerns

    Yeah that was a pretty ignorant comment. I was surprised there wasn't a warning when that scene came on it's the first thing I thought of; "wow I hope some kids don't get a seizure from this". In Japan they still run warnings on kids shows and dim the brightness of scenes that are borderline...

    Sony to Shift Away from Gadgets

    Sony's insurance arm is where they make all of their money. They have their fingers in a lot more places than people tend to realize. I think it's sad that they joined the race to the bottom in the "gadget" space through the 90s, before that they were generally a premium product like apple is...

    YouTube Launching New Music Streaming Service

    I see Google went to the same brand confusion school as Microsoft. Renaming a service every year after it doesn't catch on, yet destroying what little traction with name recognition you've built up. Killing the Hotmail name is still one of the most boneheaded name changes I've ever seen.
