    Corsair Product Marketer Fired with Extreme Prejudice

    I hope this is a joke. I think this looks better than all that carebear stare stuff. I honestly never look at my case so I don't get all the fuss about decorating things anyway. When I'm at my computer, I stare at my monitor.

    Google Maps Pulls Cupcake Calorie Counter After Backlash

    A lot of people don't understand what libertarians stand for and just eat up whatever the news says. It's easier to create sensationalism if you only have two opposing views instead of explaining what the different ideologies are. That would take too much time for the consumption based society...

    Are Audiences Too Lazy to Appreciate Blade Runner 2049?

    I agree with you 100%. The flyovers and expansive vistas he did in 2049 and Arrival would really bring Dune to life, just trade the greys for oranges. And then you have his Los Angeles in 2049 which you could just change the signs to Geidi Prime and nobody would know it was a different film.

    Are Audiences Too Lazy to Appreciate Blade Runner 2049?

    I agree with this because I have a theater in my house so I get the same experience at home. I only go to the theaters when I can't wait for it to show up on Netflix/Torrents etc..

    That's what I'm wondering. Is this just for pro sports players with big hands and if not what is the point?

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    That's glorious. Pure insanity, and I like it! I just try to reduce the amount of things in my htpc to keep it open and the air flowing through. There isn't any other reason why I couldn't just throw in a sata card. This is the ancient beast currently driving my htpc with a gtx 1060 to run 4k...

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    I actually need the 10 sata ports. I'm looking to upgrade my HTPC that has 8 3.5 bays and 2 2.5 bays but the current mobo I'm looking at will suck two of the 10 sata ports if I use a m2 drive which is lame. I'm guessing this chip has less sata ports because they're using some of them for the...

    Vendor: Amazon Jacked up Prime Day Prices, Misleading Consumers

    Amazon de-listed the Nvidia Shield Pro on Prime day because they were selling the standard version for $20, it magically reappeared in stock after Prime day. I'm sure they were engaged in all sorts of shenanigans for Prime day.

    Cox Expands 1TB Data Cap to More Territories

    More Affordable 10GBase-T Switches Imminent

    I had my new house wired with cat 6a and then started researching 10gig hardware and was totally bummed to see that it didn't really exist for consumers. But looks like this might be out the same time my house is done being built so I'm totally pumped.

    ASUS “Leaks” STRIX X299-E Motherboard

    I think I'm old now as I don't care about the color or lighting of anything on my PC anymore. I didn't even get a window panel on my last build. It sits on the side of my desk and I never look at it, I'm too busy gaming.

    Arozzi Vernazza Gaming Chair Unboxing & Assembly @ [H]

    I've learned with four cats in the house fake leather anything is no longer advisable. The cats will give it a makeover more to their liking, e.g. entrails spilling out from all corners. I have no idea why they like fake leather so much, they leave real leather alone. Mesh chairs it is and I...

    Your 4K TV Is Probably the Only 4K Converter You Need

    The guys over at AVS did a speaker cable test and they made a speaker cable literally out of tin foil and tested it against expensive speaker cables, there was zero difference between the aluminum foil and the expensive cables.

    [H]ardOCP Spec Bookshelf Speaker Setup

    Same, but I bought the receiver and speakers for this purpose. Just some SVS Prime bookshelf speakers paired with a SVS SB1000 sub and a Marantz receiver over HDMI. Music sings and I can turn it up and my girlfriend feels the bombs going off in BF1 from the bedroom.

    San Francisco University Lays Off IT Workers; Jobs Head to India

    That's interesting. UC Schools was a client of mine at a previous employer and they required everybody that worked on them as a client be on shore. We couldn't utilize any off shore developers or off shore call center reps. Hypocrisy.

    Recommendations needed: 2016 Cheap entry into surround sound?

    You wouldn't want to plug your hdmi into your tv and optical back to the receiver. Cable Box HDMI --> Receiver --> HDMI to TV. You will run everything into the receiver and one cable to the TV and switch between the sources with the receivers remote. If you are using a smart tv instead of a...

    New LG OLED TVs Are Only 2.6mm Thick

    The only place I can put that ugly sound bar is on top of my center channel, it's pretty pointless. I would wager "most" people buying this level of tv have a dedicated receiver and speaker system. The G7 might work though, I believe the soundbar folds up under the TV which is ideal for those...
