    EA Announces Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

    There were only 5 in the series which came to PC (not counting the 2 expansions for AA). I did not play Warfighter and I think the 2010 MoH was only meh, but I liked the others. I think it generally works better when the story is based on historical events rather than recent events with...

    Snapdragon chip flaws put >1 billion Android phones at risk of data theft

    I still get the monthly security updates on my Nokia 7 Plus, because it is in Android One and it was released on the 25th of February, 2018. It has a Snapdragon 660, so I hope a fix will be provided in the September security patch! I wish there were more Android One devices to choose from! The...

    iPhone 12 Won't Include Charger Or EarPods In Box

    My bad on the iPad. I thought the USB-C port had the Thunderbolt 3 controller behind it. However, Thunderbolt is a joint between Apple and Intel. In fact, Apple was the only company to use it for a long time. https://www.apple.com/thunderbolt/ Seriously? They are also compatible with each other...

    iPhone 12 Won't Include Charger Or EarPods In Box

    My point is that they are preaching water and drinking wine. Why agree to the changes if you will only skirt around them? Only acting, if you can even say that, more than a decade later too. They have used Thunderbolt 3 on iPads and MacBooks for years. Why not on the iPhone? It would have...

    iPhone 12 Won't Include Charger Or EarPods In Box

    Commission welcomes industry's commitment to provide a common charger for mobile phones (29 June 2009) So, no, Apple is still not doing what they originally agreed to do in the EU. They have signed up 11 years ago. They put a single USB-C on the 2015 Macbook and later on the 3rd gen iPad. What...

    iPhone 12 Won't Include Charger Or EarPods In Box

    Why not offer a $10 rebate for the buyers who give back an adapter, even just the new one in the box? If this would be frequent, they could prove that removing the adapter makes sense. That's my biggest problem with Apple: the only way with them is what they decided on as the best way. I know...

    Windows 10's next major update for 2021 codenamed Iron (Fe) 1-c

    Seriously? Two pages, in a week, and no one has joked about Microsoft entering the Iron Age? It's like... right there... I guess this will be an interesting month. The pilot for the next version of Windows will probably begin soon on my work laptop and I will get Ubuntu 20.04 on my home desktop...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    I forgot to mention that I used this guide when trying to get my VM to work: https://mathiashueber.com/windows-virtual-machine-gpu-passthrough-ubuntu/. The fact that I couldn't get my P2V Win10 to boot doesn't mean anything. I found it informative, easy to understand and to be more up to date...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Yep But I discovered that OOTP 20 won't run with the FIFA instance of Origin, so I have to keep both. They take up about 10GB without the games themselves. I should get rid of some games I have not even played in years.

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    I mean that I only need one of these, because both of them contains an installation of Origin:

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Actually, it was my fault that FIFA did not work. I did not understand that even though I got Origin installed, FIFA will not work in that environment. It works now, because I used the install script which installed some dependencies. The .NET 4.7.2 installer took ages, but it did the trick. The...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    I have tried Lutris today and it really is promising. I could get OOTP 20 working without any hassle. However, FIFA 20 doesn't work at all. I saw an error in the log regarding FIFASetup, so I set it to skip the launcher. Now, there is no error, it just seems to terminate instantly. I have also...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Yeah, I read that it generally works with Lutris, but I also read that multiplayer usually doesn't work. I have a pretty good collection in FIFA 20 FUT, which I don't want to give up on. I have set up IOMMU and isolation of the 1070. Messed it up at first, but corrected it using the recovery...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Thanks for all the posts! My long-term goal is not to use the VM, well, only if something Windows-specific comes up. But with Origin in the picture, it might be necessary to do so, in order to avoid rebooting and switching constantly and to get rid of the installation on the physical drive. I...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Well, I might be going about this the wrong way, but I would need some accomplishments to make me actually change to Linux. I find that solving a difficult task can give me comfort. Setting up the VM successfully might give me that. In the three hours since installation finished, I had trouble...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Thanks for the replies, very useful! I will stick with Ubuntu for now and, if I can't bend it to my will, then I can always try Pop OS. Dual-booting did get set up, so I have the option. Hopefully, I will not have to use it too often. I did get the login loop problem before I could log in. I...

    Ubuntu + Win10 VM

    Hi and thanks for checking this thread! The objective I've set for myself is to try and change over completely to Ubuntu. I have several reasons, but they do not add up to this being a must. I will see if I want to continue down this path or not. I have a desktop with an i5-7600K with 16GB DDR4...

    European Cable modem exploit gives hackers full control

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Yeah, I played it more on Win7 and it usually crashed after an hour or two. I think it having memory issues has very little to do what version of Windows you are using. Hard to understand why it was never patched, not even the GOG version which is missing multiplayer too. I love this game, but...

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    THANKS! I almost fell out of my chair. I have read and heard a _lot_ of discussions between customer care, technicians and customers of major PC brands, but the original video and "Lyle" definitely gave me a whole new experience.

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Had the same kind of issues in 2007, with three different distros. After I got the drivers to work, performance was much worse than with XP/Vista. It got better, but it is still not worth the hassle for me. It feels like this has come to a junction now and hopefully takes a turn for the better!

    Asus and Gigabyte Drivers Allegedly Contain Serious Security Vulnerabilities

    I have a Gigabyte Z270 Gaming K3 board since last summer. NONE of their software works or ever worked for me except the drivers. They claimed that it works on the previous Win10 version, until they gave up and did not even post updates to their software anymore except for the soundcard drivers...

    Microsoft Admits Normal Windows 10 Users Are "Testing" Unstable Updates

    Yes, because if they made that, or any other, statement, you would believe them, right? That's the gist of it: People generally care about how it works and how you can make it work and not how the company or any other person, be it fanboy or hater, claims it works. You tend to claim that...

    Woman Sues Apple over iPhone Notch

    I'm not sure if it is this lawsuit, but there is one which argues that some pixels don't have the usual 3 subpixels, but only 2, so the pixel count is misleading. Also, it argues that the screen on the 8 plus is better than on the X, so the ads are misleading...

    Windows 10 19H1: All the Changes We Know So Far

    I use the Pro version as I could get a retail key for about $20. Since then I bought more for friends and family at around $10. OEM keys go for even less and can be transferred (in the future, if need be) the same way as retail for some time now. I can always get what I want from the store and I...

    Windows 10 19H1: All the Changes We Know So Far

    Thread lightly. Generally, people complaining about Windows (10) around here just want you to listen to them. They are not interested in solutions. For some reason, they are not content only with taking their medications, mint or whatever. :P OT: Regarding the previous update which is still not...

    Malware Strains Fight over Access to Android Devices with USB Debugging Mode Open

    For this to work this requires: Enabling debugging on the phone. AND setting the adb service on a PC to listen over the network. AND setting the listening port on that PC to 5555. AND if you let that PC to connect to your phone for debugging. That's not even the default port and adb doesn't...

    Android Security Updates are Now Mandatory

    I have a Nokia 7 Plus which is an Android One phone. It has stock Android with only minor tweaks from Nokia. As far as I know, you don't lose your warranty even if you root it. It is already on Android 9 and receives all security patches (monthly), about a week after Google releases them. The...

    Windows 10 October Update is Losing User Data

    Did you read my reply? I didn't and still do not question that quality should be better. However, I've clearly explained why I have doubts about this report. I have some reservations about believing a report citing one unknown person's account without any evidence, regardless of the topic or my...

    Windows 10 October Update is Losing User Data

    Your statement is dishonest as it is based on half truths and only on one person's account. If this was a programming error than a hell of a lot of people would have experienced it already. More people lose data every day to things much less malicious than Win10. But bashing anything MS or Win10...

    Windows 10 October Update is Losing User Data

    Although, we should make a note here, that if there is only one (1) somewhat confirmed case, then this smells like bullshit. Considering the adoption rate of Windows and the fact that most people can't be bothered to set the updates to the slow ring. If this happened to someone with *nix, MacOS...
