    Razer is launching a prepaid credit card

    I'm not arguing your point in general, I think you are probably right. But I recently got a pre-paid credit card for paying for stuff online....the more shadier companies (like file sharing). That way if they try to over charge, or my card info gets stolen I don't have to worry too much.

    PS5 Price Revealed

    First game I ever bought was Populous 2 in the early 90's and I paid $50 for that. The difference though was that 30 years ago you sold 10's of thousands of units. Now you sell 10's of millions of units.

    Apple helped the US government build a 'top secret' iPod, former engineer says

    Article doesn’t actually give any information. iPod designer claims he helped develop an iPod that looked and functioned like normal but had the ability to do other things. No one at the company can validate his claims cause it was top secret and couple people that did know have left. Developer...

    Apple blocks WordPress iOS app updates because they weren't getting a cut of free purchases.

    Don’t forget the next part of the article, where the developer seems to understand the issue better then those getting outraged on his behalf.

    Apple blocks WordPress iOS app updates because they weren't getting a cut of free purchases.

    What part am I supposed to be outraged about? Not following rules or Apple making a profit?

    Apple blocks WordPress iOS app updates because they weren't getting a cut of free purchases.

    it said in the article that there was a way for customers to find out about purchasing things outside the app. Which is where the problem is. The developer said “ok you caught me, I’ll just remove it an we are good now?” Apple is saying no, make it available the proper way that you agreed to and...

    Apple blocks WordPress iOS app updates because they weren't getting a cut of free purchases.

    I don't understand the rationality for why so many people believe app developers are entitled to the 10's of millions of users on Apple's platform and not have to pay anything for it. Apple created the entire ecosphere that allows for this app (program) to exist, in exchange for that, they want...

    Apple for no reason so what ever other than greed and evil...... Oh, so in other words....just follow the normal rules and he would be fine.

    Never had amd before

    AMD Processors will make all your dreams come true* *Not valid in all states. Results shown not typical. Your results may vary. We have a Ryzen 2600 on our Oculus Rift S. I would say the video card is the important factor on VR. Went with AMD because the price is very competitive. Since then...

    Sampler Feedback Streaming will allow Xbox Series X to better the I/O throughput of Sony PS5

    I'm not too concerned with the tribal banter of Team Xbox versus Team Playstation versus Team PC. but I what I found very interesting in regards to the Playstation SSD announcement is how games were so fundamentally impacted by the speed of the storage medium. The maps and game play themselves...

    Epic Games integrates into GoG, and Tim Sweeney advocates for universal game ownership across all platforms

    Oh also, none of these games or services are sold for the sake of art or your enjoyment. They are created and sold to generate revenue, for everyone involved. That's the only reason these different services and games exist. This notion of universal ownership would seem to fly in the face of the...

    Epic Games integrates into GoG, and Tim Sweeney advocates for universal game ownership across all platforms

    When you make a purchase on Steam now, you have to agree to the "subscriber" terms of service for every purchase. Its seems Steam might be side stepping this issue by not selling you anything. Instead you pay a one time "subscription" fee to use that product indefinitely.....until you can't. So...
