    BitTorrent Traffic Share Drops To New Low

    My thoughts are pretty close to this. With legitimate and easy to use alternatives (Netflix, Amazon streaming) there's not as much need for me to torrent TV shows and movies.

    Google Loses Data As Lightning Strikes

    Reading the issue logs for google is an entertaining activity. Even google employees are susceptible to fat-fingering a setting, just like us!

    FBI Investigating Series Of Fiber Cuts In Bay Area

    I read about this somewhere else yesterday and the bad guys may have been dressed as utility workers, which makes this pretty dang premeditated.

    MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G Video Card Review @ [H]

    Pirate Bay Uploader Hit With $32m Lawsuit

    NVIDIA's Jetson TK1 Mobile Embedded Supercomputer Now Shipping

    This is really cool, an affordable way to get into dedicated CUDA stuff could be a lot of fun. On a smartass note: How long until people buy this for mining cryptocoins?

    GTX 580 SLI upgrade/sidegrade

    What this gentleman says, pretty much. Plenty of mid-range cards will absolutely spank Source engine games at 1080p.
