    Do you like Android or iPhone better, and why?

    iPhone 7 for work - prefer it to Android for that specific use-case. Simple easy,security that isn't always in your face, gets the job done. Samsung S9 personal - I'm used to Android and I like the ability to modify the UI, and Swype keyboard is best keyboard

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    I've played through the first level (Olympus) and if you try to get the story you'll end up spending way too much time trying. The gameplay is fun, the voice acting is forced and halting. All in all, I can't see myself finishing this one. But that's me - old fart waiting for Crackdown 3 lol

    Metacritic: Xbox One Didn't Have a Single Positively Reviewed Exclusive in 2018

    I transferred from an older PC to a 1X. With Xbox LiveGold and Gamepass (none of which I've paid a single cent for - thank you MS rewards program) I have access to more high quality games than I could ever play. As a PC gamer I've converted to a controller and I have very compelling content that...

    Forza Horizon 4 - A beautiful game

    The one Xi s a superb platform for this game, I spent my time so far in a mix between 1080x60 and 2160x30, I'll need more time to determine which I like better,. For now I really like the 4k when looking at the car model in a static environment. I haven't driven enough in the 1080 mode to make a...

    Forza Horizon 4 - A beautiful game

    Found it to be quite enjoyable just saying heck with the races - just went out, and bought some cars that I've previously owned and tricked them out Loved the Mini - most agile car I've ever owned I had an 85, but this looks identical except for the rear spoiler. If you have Gamepass, go...

    Halo TV Series Is On Its Way

    To get used to controllers (to make me feel justified in my purchase of an Xbox 1X) I ran through Reach, MCC and 5 starting in November. I liked the story a lot. If done well, the series could be compelling enough to sit with the best sci-fi out there. I would hope that this is an initial foray...

    I ain't saying it'll best my Canon with a nifty - fifty in a tripod with someone posing, but if I'm watching a movie on the couch and my cat does something funny, setting up the studio is not possible, going from an S3 to an S7 I noticed tremendous improvement inn low light response. Hoping...

    Microsoft Says It’s Time to Kill Off the Password

    Isn't this the same as requiring the enduser to use an authentication that they *against their will* can be quickly and easily coerced to provide - rather than just saying "take a hike" they can use your body against you. Complex passwords and two factor authentication keep the individual far...

    Has anyone downloaded and ran the "Insects" 4K HDR demo? My monitor (UN78JU7500f) is HDR compatible but only has an 8 bit panel. I'm still noticing a marked difference toggling HDR mode. I am really amazed at the difference toggling between 4k, HD, non-HDR and HDR settings.

    The rig in my sig is long in the tooth, I can't think of a better expenditure for a graphics upgrade, but I'm currently running a Xbox 360 as a console for comparison. I think I will be delightfully surprised at the performance/quality.
