    Get Ready for Targeted Ads on Your Smart TV

    I will never get a "smart" TV if this is the direction they will go. If the last TV ever sold is a "smart" TV then I will find a way to make a monitor work. "Enhance the viewing experience," my ass.

    NVIDIA Controls AIB Launch and Driver Distribution @ [H]

    This level of power grabbing cannot be rewarded. Thank you, [H] and Kyle.

    Who Gets To Be On The Steam Store?

    I can't agree with your reasoning. Killing people is also a crime. Therefore, the people stimulated by such content are almost all criminals per your logic. There goes most of [H]! Back to far as I know there has not been a link demonstrated between video games and violence. In...

    GeForce Partner Program Impacts Consumer Choice

    Kyle, in the 16 years I've been following [H] I have yet to see you on the wrong side of an important issue. Thanks for speaking up and you have my support.

    Tim Cook Calls $999 iPhone X a “Value Price” in New Interview

    To be fair, he's correct. The iPhone X is a terrific value for Apple's bottom line.

    Introducing the GeForce GTX Battlebox

    No handles, god-awful aesthetics, price premium? It'll sell like hotcakes. Thanks but I'll keep on building my new computer with its DAN case. :)

    Tossing my hat in the ring. Thanks as always for an excellent review, [H].

    YouTube Announces Streaming TV Service for $35 per Month

    I really want alternatives to cable companies to succeed but this idea needs work. As it is, it's just like what I hate. What I would go for: Three (could be more) tiers of channels Packages $10 and up (using Netflix as a baseline) giving you X, Y, and Z number of channels of your choice from...

    Windows 10 Game Mode: Free FPS Boost Of A Few Percent, With More To Come

    Probably not very many on this forum. I also can't speak for anyone else but when I've introduced people to PC gaming they're amazed at how much better of an experience they can have in the right game. So long as the options are there I'll be happy but I really hope they don't want to make the...

    Windows 10 Game Mode: Free FPS Boost Of A Few Percent, With More To Come

    More console-itis is JUST what the doctor ordered! ...said no one ever. The only way to make a gaming experience more predictable is to stop pushing boundaries which I sincerely hope doesn't happen. That's why I do PC gaming in the first place.

    Kaby Lake 7700K vs Sandy Bridge 2600K IPC Review @ [H]

    Thanks for the write-up, [H]. Looks like I'm not upgrading from Ivy unless Zen rocks. I hope it does, just to poke Intel in the eye. And of course to give consumers more choice. Not holding my breath, though.

    Watch Dogs 2 GeForce GTX Bundle: Get The Game For Free On PC

    Me, too. I don't think you're missing much. Dan should have my case delivered by the time Zen's impact on the market, if any, is clear. From what I hear Kaby Lake should be a good but not earth shattering upgrade. On this specific topic, I hope gaming bundles like this keep gaining in popularity.

    Are We Supposed To Believe The Nintendo NX Is Coming Out In Nine Months?

    I'd bet on them frantically redoing it to avoid horrendous embarrassment. You can only thumb your nose at technology for so long before you're left in the dust. They could probablly target a middle range of hardware that is at least somewhat competitive feature-wise with their competitors and...

    How Much Does Kyle Hate AMD?

    I've been here a long time. Long enough to see Kyle go back and forth on his opinions. So far as I can tell, those opinions are about what AMD/Nvidia/Intel/etc. is doing, not about the company itself. Every time Kyle has said he doesn't like something he gives you the reasons why. That's why I...

    Corsair SF600 600W SFX Power Supply Review @ [H]

    How hard would it be to open the casing and replace the fan with a higher quality one?
