    Funny you say that, as I went from arrow keys with left and right to turn to UT'99 dragging me kicking and screaming into the WASD and mouse aim era (keep in mind that I was mostly playing DOS-era FPSs in singleplayer before then) to Tribes 2...

    I haven't had Comcast at home for a few years; my parents opted to ditch them for AT&T after Comcast went nuts with overages in the stupid 300 GB/month era. 1.2 TB/month isn't enough of an improvement. Granted, it also meant going from 90/10 to...

    IMHO when I am paying for land based broadband service, I am paying to max that shit out 24/7 at advertised speeds. Any lower cap than that is unacceptable.

    This is why we need competition, and an end to all local monopolies.

    Apple is the one tech company which still values user privacy and does _not_ just function as a data broker. However, spyware isn't even the problem here, it's even worse: Apple is essentially controlling what you can and cannot do on physical...

    I got a GTX 980 for basically 970 pricing in late 2015, so I'm in much the same boat five years later. The 980 is the same GPU, after all, just fully enabled and with the entire 4 GB of VRAM being usable at full speed. The thing is, for flat...

    I have a peanut allergy and I demand that the new xbox come with a 'may contain nuts' warning. Can't be too safe!

    Should they have to have a comprehensive list of all things they don't recommend doing with an Xbox? - Do not Vape into Xbox - Do not use Xbox as a Football - Do not paint Xbox with latex Paint - Do not fuck Xbox ...

    Been using Samsung phones for many years, currently on a Note 20 Ultra, and I generally like it except for how they dropped the headphone jack back on the Note 10 and made me wait a few weeks to get some USB-C IEMs that should've been in the box...

    To be fair, I haven't seen many other manufacturers go whole ham on soldering everything to the motherboard... except for Apple, because thinness and they gotta ensure people without hot air BGA rework equipment and a whole lot of patience have...

    Speaking of laptop serviceability, I had to pop the bottom cover off of my OMEN X 2S to install a second M.2 SSD. Six T6 screws undone and it's off, right? WRONG! The damn thing's latched on pretty securely, and takes some careful prying with a...

    Replace "laptop" with "car", and you'll be echoing car enthusiasts pretty well with that statement. Ugly styling across the board, no more manual transmissions, rev hang when you do have a manual option, bigger and heavier without the interior...

    The problem with ranking on brands is that outside of certain brands like Apple and Razer, most of them run the gamut from "godawful plasticky cheap crap where you have to tear down the entire bottom half just to replace the hard drive, topped...

    The chiclet keyboard caveat is what really screws you over, as it's difficult for me to think of any laptop nowadays that hasn't adopted that keycap shape in some form. You can probably thank Apple for that. Even modern ThinkPads use 'em, and...

    My primary gaming desktop is an aging i7-4770K 4.5 GHz/32 GB DDR3-2400/GTX 980 system, and while I've been itching to upgrade the GPU in it, the availability of NVIDIA's new Ampere cards has been a total joke. We'll see if AMD fares better with...

    Acer ConceptD 7 Ezel (not to be mistaken for the non-Ezel version, that's just a plain laptop) or ConceptD 9. Sorry about your wallet. https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/conceptd-series/conceptd7ezel...

    I use an Eizo FG2421 on my desktop - 120 Hz VA. It's probably the first LCD monitor I laid eyes on that didn't look like total crap coming from a Sony GDM-FW900, and the contrast ratio (somewhere between 4600:1 and the advertised 5000:1 in...

    I use an Eizo FG2421, 1080p 120 Hz, as my main monitor. Not much by modern standards, but it'll tide me over until I can treat myself to an LG C9 or CX once the 4K 120 Hz G-SYNC support's been verified from the peope lucky enough to actually have...
