    Microsoft Fights Fake News with New Edge Browser Feature

    Em. No. Newsguard was pretty much busted on Day 1 flagging Propaganda sites as Legit; and flagging #Who #What #When #Where #Why sites as fake. It... was proven within a matter of hours to perform the exact opposite of what it claimed to do. Microsoft got called on the matter... but so far...

    “Solo” Box Office a Historic Failure for “Star Wars”

    #GoWokeGoBroke Star Wars and a Wrinkle in Time both demonstrated that audiences do not want their movies filled with leftist pap. Black Panther and Avengers/Cap America showed that audiences adore films that are #ProTrump or anti-leftist. It is that simple.

    KGI: TrueDepth Camera Gives Apple 2.5 Year Lead over Android Competitors

    I'm struggling to actually find a point in this "Cool Story" from Krazy; but here's my shot at it. Not just opinion. Provable fact. Here's the thing Krazy.

    ... Does not seem like you know what net Neutrality is either... And that it was not rolled back because it was never implemented. What the Tom wheeler FCC and Obama administration put into place was not net Neutrality, nor did it even resemble net Neutrality in any way. From 2010...

    Linux Who? Windows Still King of the Desktop

    Most Linux Desktop Users don't care about marketshare. Never have. Likely never will. There's a reason (they) happily scrap about what Desktop Interface is better than another; or about the differences between Window Managers and Desktop Environments; or even about what code creation tools they...

    Twitter Tests New Ad-Blocking Reader Mode

    And yet... if only Twitter would simply offer Twitter users an option to use the Twitter service WITHOUT ads for say $2.99 a month, $10 a year... they'd probably make a profit in just a single day.

    OpenOffice, After Years Of Neglect, Could Shut Down

    It's probably worth posting to the actual mailing list host rather than the ArsTechnica take on the story: openoffice-dev mailing list archives Apache's mailing system does not lend itself all that well towards direct linking of messages or threads; so if it works the opening email should be...

    Streaming Music Crosses $1B In US Sales

    Partially because almost "everybody" is hung up on reporting figures from Spotify or Apple... rather than the juggernaut known as Google Play Music.

    ... what... analysts? AMD has been doing BUPKUS to get their chips into Android and ChromeOS products; basically the only market segments that are sustaining worldwide sales growth. Every analyst worth their salt knew that AMD's earnings were going to be weak because the company still hasn't...

    Google+ Is Slowly Being Killed

    The continued reports of G+'s demise are greatly exaggerated. Let's face it... G+ is a social network that dusted Twitter off like a bad habit a couple years back, and is only second in size to Facebook in terms of both active user population and generated content. So... if G+ is dying or...
