    Motorola Moto X Force XT1580 32GB Black (FACTORY UNLOCKED) Switched to Project Fi so I have a new Pixel, but this phone was awesome while I used it. FWIW, my single (positive!) Heatware review :)

    Seagate Laying Off 2,217 Employees

    Cursed earth, right there. They should burn it and salt the soil too.

    Turns out this isn't just "some guy"

    Comcast 1TB Internet Cap Is Becoming A Reality

    Not going to happen, at least not for the next 4 years. Not trying to make this a political post but... this is inherently politics. The FCC was headed by a majority body of people (led by Tom Wheeler) that distinctly had public interest in mind. In each and every dissent, Ajit Pai and Michael...

    The Fate Of The Furious Official Trailer

    They're rebooting the series into Safe Mode?

    Google Has Scaled Back Self-Driving Car Ambitions

    I really like the stuff Google does, but they have really piss poor follow through when it comes to nearly all hardware and a lot of software. Project Fi, Google Fiber, Nexus phones, Nest/Protect/Dropcam, Google Voice.... They're too wishy-washy and it seems like every time a project hits a...

    AT&T: Letting Us Buy Time Warner Will Be "Good For Consumers"

    Exactly. And as long as Verizon and Comcast exist as "competition" then the anti-trust suits have little leg to stand on. Pay no attention the illegal collusion between the companies, right?

    Eavesdropping Toys Send What They Hear To A Defense Contractor

    I'd credit Nuance for selling Dragon, but not for creating it. That's a whole other interesting story about Goldman Sachs screwing over people (as usual).

    Consumer Group Wants 'Autopilot' Term Banned From Tesla Marketing

    So your appeal is to dumb down the language to the lowest common denominator, eschewing personal responsibility of ownership and education? That's how you end up with a world described like the Up Goer Five. Alternatively, not all facial tissue is 'Kleenex', not all...

    HBO and Cinemax Now Available for Amazon Prime Members

    Ah yes, good ol [H], where everyone fucks 10's and makes $500k/yr. It's like the DuPont Registry for computer geeks.

    Why Can’t Silicon Valley Solve Its Diversity Problem?

    How to fix it? For each recruiting event you hold at MIT and Cal, hold one at Howard and Morgan State. For each recruiting event you hold at Barnard and Spelman, hold one at Hampden-Sydney and Morehouse. If you're only recruiting from a very small college pool that YOU "think" is only the...

    Consumer Group Wants 'Autopilot' Term Banned From Tesla Marketing

    So tired of hearing this crap. Bunch of a-holes that can't bother to read a user manual that complain that the word is confusing them. Even Autopilot in a plane doesn't offer "complete route control and avoid all collision possibilities", it requires the pilot to remain aware of his...

    Cyber Monday Is Now Pretty Pointless

    I got a Fitbit Charge 2 for $40 off on Amazon on Cyber Monday, also an Anova Sous Vide for $126 (normally $200). They were both things that I was specifically looking for though, so I was pleased when I saw the price drop. I think just the amount of stuff is overwhelming to search for deals...

    Mark Zuckerberg: Identifying The "Truth" Is Complicated

    This entire election, and culture battle of the last (shit...) 15 years has been what criteria exactly constitutes a "fact." As soon as we as a population started allowing there to be a difference between "liberal facts" and "real facts" in Western media, that was the beginning of our downfall...
