    High Performance to Noise Ratio in Noctua's Next Generation A-Series Fans

    Yeah, but then you end up dressing like you just got run over by the clearance rack at Goodwill

    The Last Throes of Mad Catz

    Mad Catz also bought Saitek and cranked out low-quality versions of the cyborg 3D. I had a game-port version of the stick from when it was still made by Saitek, and the later Madcatz version was nowhere near it in quality.

    Social Just Warriors in Space....and Beyond

    Obesity is caused by eating low-quality cheap food. Someone who spends $5 a day on the Mcdonalds dollar menu is going to be more obese that someone who spends $50 a day on seafood and steak at a fancy restaurant

    Social Just Warriors in Space....and Beyond

    I had never heard of Point & Clickbait before. It looks like a gaming-focused onion-esque parody of Breitbart. (I assume its a parody anyway, it's getting harder to tell lately)

    You Should Care about the Supreme Court Case on Toner Cartridges

    It really depends on which part of Hollywood you are talking about. Directors, writers, actors, and production crew, sure I could see that. After all, it's hard to create something that appeals to the masses if you only think about yourself. Movie studio executives and financial backers (the...

    VR Gaining Traction in the HardForum

    There is a VR version of the Dolphin Gamecube emulator that works similar fashion as vorpx. Metroid Prime supposedly plays pretty good in VR, other games not so well.

    VR Gaining Traction in the HardForum

    You can't look around or behind you with a flat screen, no matter how big it is. Granted, any game that requires such actions will have a dedicated 'look' function, but VR makes it a much more natural thing to do.

    Google Working on Secret VR OLED with 10 Times the Pixels of Current Displays

    I would like to point out that the screen door effect is not directly related to the resolution or pixels per inch. It's caused by the gaps between the pixels, so all they really need to do is to make screens with larger pixels and smaller gaps.

    Noctua Exhibit at Computex Has AMD ThreadRipper Heat Sinks and More [Rumor]

    Just wait until the fans starting playing the corporate jingle every time you turn them on, like some modern appliances do. You hit power button and hear the post beep, followed by 4 different jingles playing at the same time.

    You Should Care about the Supreme Court Case on Toner Cartridges

    I don't know if it applies here, but some printer companies were adding an automatic expiration for cartridges, where the cartridge would record the date when it was first installed, and report empty after a set amount of time had passed, regardless of actual ink level remaining.

    HTC Vive Wireless Shown Off by Intel at Computex

    Isn't it a bit late for Intel to be annoucing this, when the TPCast wireless adaptor is going on sale sometime in the next 3 months? The 3rd party Windows Holographic VR headsets already do this, using some variation of kinect technology

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    It's a solution for a problem that doesn't yet exist, but it's becoming increasingly clear that, if it does happen, it will happen within the next few decades. The important thing to remember, though, is that creating any solution will take a long time, and there needs to be a solution ready...

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    It comes from the 1%, who currently have 99% of the money.

    Mark Zuckerberg Calls for Universal Basic Income in Harvard Commencement Speech

    This was at Harvard, a school for rich kids who already have income for life in the form of trust funds. Is there a phrase that means the exact opposite of "preaching to the choir"? Because that's what he was doing.
