    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Lots of good (and some bad) thoughts and opinions here. Speaking for myself... and no I haven't 100% fleshed this out... For the "free" platforms over ~50M, I would like accounts to be authenticated somehow, tied to a real person, via a PKI or CAC card or some-such, which you could not change...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    Try this approach: Explore as much as practical and to a point, avoid the story quests... you will eventually be forced to switch over to the story quests due to being under-leveled. You seem to get more XP for the story, so when the majority of exploration seems to end up with red skulls and...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    I'm surprised nobody has brought up freesync vs g-sync. Freesync IMO makes the case here to go with the VII vs the 2080.

    Criminals Are Still Exploiting SS7 Cellular Network Flaws

    Sorry, nothing can be done. Consumer protection = regulation and that's a bad word so just accept loss of life savings. Besides, if the common man doesn't fully understand intercept 2 factor SS7 then that's his fault, amirite?

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I sure hope they don't "Shannara Chronicles" The Witcher... Call me cynical, but I read "stopped playing the game so we could create our own visual adaption" as not a good sign. Then I saw the picture of the actors and thought... here we go again.... I hope I'm wrong.

    Meet the Chatbot That Trolls Telemarketers

    Whatever we do, please don't legislate any regulation with teeth, otherwise polliticans might get less dark money *gasp* Besides, we all know any regulation is job killing bad, best to just let pure unadulterated capitalism run amok. Actually surprised we haven't shuttered consumer finance...

    California Introduces Bot Banning Bill

    Having a hard time understanding your logic. You'd have to do that whether you thought it was a bot or not, the only thing that changes here is you know. Unless I'm reading this wrong, you'd be able to see the bots in a facebook thread. Wait... are you a bot? :P

    Fixjeiphone NL Presents the World's First Teardown of the Apple iPhone XS

    Very cool video. I snagged the Xs, should be coming today. Only did it because AT&T threw in a free 8 plus (that came yesterday) and it's a good time for wife and I to upgrade... she's still on a Oct 2012 original iphone 5 and my 6 has been having issues with the screen going blank and battery...

    I'm sure Mick Mulvaney is on top of it, and by on top of it I mean taking a cut.

    Apple Leaks Unnanounced iPhones

    Only care because the 8 plus price should drop... wife broke her 6 plus so she's back on a vanilla launch 5 for about 8 months now. I am not a Mac fan but I like the iphones, mostly because when it comes to security all the issues I hear about are on android...
