    Facebook Employees Had Access to Millions of User Passwords Stored in Plain Text

    That is my question... while I am concerned about passwords being in plain text of course, and this particular incident is obviously a huge threat to users. I am more concerned that the encryption used is actually reversible such that they can be decrypted to begin with as that is more of a...

    No Mans Sky "Beyond" Update Will Feature Multiplayer

    That's kind of the way I feel about it as well :ROFLMAO: One of my coworkers said he liked it, but ended up getting stuck on a planet for some reason and just gave up.

    Google Announces a New Campus in New York City

    I get the whole "talent pool" argument for locating this in New York. But it is taking an already congested city and making it even more so. It also just seems kind of silly, even though they have the money, to just build in the most expensive possible place they can think of. Take Phoenix AZ...

    FCC Votes to Classify Text Messaging as an Information Service

    I'm not sure how I feel about this one. Either way gives one "group" some power over the other. If it happens that there some possibility that my hate speech texts get blocked I'll just start hate speaking on encrypted apps. :ROFLMAO: In all honesty, as long as 99.999% of my text messages get...

    Rockstar Intends to Address Red Dead Redemption 2's Economy

    I have no problem with micro transactions as long as they don't give any player an unfair advantage.

    Microsoft Is Replacing Edge in Windows 10 with a Chromium-Based Web Browser

    As much as I love this forum, it's members disdain for Microsoft in general is rather annoying, often times completely misinformed and rather pathetically biased. No, fuck that, lets just continue with brand bashing because all the cool kids are doing it. :meh: Competition is a good thing. The...

    Microsoft Is Replacing Edge in Windows 10 with a Chromium-Based Web Browser

    That's an IoT solution, it would not be replacing Windows Desktop.

    Microsoft Is Replacing Edge in Windows 10 with a Chromium-Based Web Browser

    Not really true. It's was based on a fork of Trident, but was re-written almost from the ground up to be compatible with WebKit. It shares very little of its code base with the original Trident(MSHTML) engine, and actually performs better then firefox or chrome in a lot of benchmarks. Whether or...

    Replacing an old RAID Hyper-V setup, and have couple questions...

    So I've been running an old LSI/3ware 9650SE-8LPML raid card with a few WD Red 5400RPM 4TB drives in raid 5 for a few years. I've transferred this raid setup between several server builds, and have not had any issues with the exception of a single failed drive when I first set it up. It is...

    Diablo IV Will Be Heavily Influenced by Diablo II

    Diablo 3 was fun, until I beat it. Then I never touched it again, seemed like a waste. Id really just like to see more of a God of War slash Assassins Creed mashup. With similar simple battle mechanics as god of war, but with movement/physics and story like assassins creed. That would be the...

    Scammers Mimic Elon Musk on High Profile Twitter Accounts

    I would like to think anybody who understands and/or uses bitcoin wouldn't be stupid enough to fall for this sort of shit. It seems I have again underestimated the stupidity of people.

    Proposed Data Privacy Law Could Send Company Execs to Prison for 20 Years

    I would agree with the corporate fines and such, but the prison time clause alone is going to kill this thing. I'm not saying certain people shouldn't be doing prison time for certain things if willful negligence is shown, but has others have mentioned before, its not always the fault of the...

    Microsoft Completes $7.5B Github Acquisition

    They wont do that. Fact of the matter is GitHub is FAR superior to TFS in so many ways. They know that and have publicly admitted as much. When the .net platform source went public they made the choice to put all of that stuff in GitHub rather than TFS for a reason.
