    Microsoft E books to stop working.

    I think you miss the point. People want their books with annotations, and they want their music, hence paying for it. What they don't want is to lose access to the goods which is what's happening. I admit I have no sympathy though, anyone who expects Microsoft to keep a product more than 5...

    Microsoft Announces Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac

    Great, so now my Macs can spam me about not being signed into OneDrive "for backups" as a security risk, just like my Windows PC does? Pass. Does it block like my pihole does? Because I run 90% of my time on macOS, iOS and Playstation, yet my Windows development PC and...

    All Myspace Data Before 2016 is Gone

    1200/300 baud modem using tin, pine and lynx. Lynx to browse the web (it was great before flash became a thing) Pine for emails Tin to download porn, line by line at resolutions my 3x 4k displays probably wouldn’t even register >.<

    Atari VCS Is Powered by 14nm AMD Ryzen APU with Radeon Vega Graphics

    So three things from me (FWIW) 1. Running Linux rather than Android (I applaud it for this) means that it's going to live or die by the software designed for it. I don't know how much lean-back style software there is for Linux but based on how hard Android TV stuff is to get already (most...

    Microsoft Will Pester Windows 7 Users to Upgrade to W10 with Pop-Up Notifications

    IKR, it's not like Microsoft has a history of repeatedly harassing users into installing Windows 10 in the dodgiest ways possible...

    Tesla Unveils Model Y Electric SUV with 300-Mile Range and Seven Seats

    I’m sure they will, and it’ll be $39,000 for the base model (base model starting production 2023)* *note: base model pricing for headline grabbing only. No base model will be sold in your lifetime, but you’re dumb so you’ll defend us as affordable anyway

    Careless Employees Expose Sensitive Data as Public on the Cloud

    Unless I’m misunderstanding what Box is (cloud storage), no, he didn’t misunderstand. Offering a non password protected space to share files like this isn’t something I’d generally expect businesses to use, but here at least it seems like stupid business practices rather than any real fault of...

    Netflix May Be Losing $192M per Month from Piracy, Cord Cutting Study Claims

    So I pay for a service for 2 or 4 simultaneous streams but only I can watch all streams at the same time? Wut? Does that mean that me watching Netflix on my phone while on the road while my other half watches it at home is piracy? Is she the pirate, or me? How about if you charge $x for 2...
