    “Rick and Morty” Returns May 3rd

    I hate that , 10 episodes per year/season is the norm for TV these days and you cant push enough story with such a number. i get that with sci-fi etc. shows there is a massive post-production work to do on a level equivalent to cinema 10 years ago in terms of special effects. i also hate that...

    Spectra's New LGA1151 Motherboard Takes Us Back to 1992 With PCI Slots

    I was under the impression that you cannot install 6th gen and above on Win7 or less due to lack of CPU driver support i`m aware there are some work around, just seems like excessive to produce something for such a small niche audience

    VMware Updates per-CPU Pricing Model

    IRC we pay around 400K$ to VMware annually just for host licenses, before SRM and vrops , but lets all be honest , they offer you the ability to have the whole data center compute power on a single cabinet , and thats huge, it saves allot of money for enterprises on man-power , electricity...

    why do CPU's GPU's cost so much or do they cost so much?

    9K isn't even that much for a 1u or 2u rack mount server , you shouldn't be comparing that thing to a PC oh and thats before licenses, esxi , OS etc.

    (DCS World developer) jailed and charged with smuggling fighter jet manuals to Moscow

    This is crazy , F-16 manuals are available on the net and eBay and not to mention plenty of countries operate the F-16 and also, its legal for some U.S citizen to buy those , but illegal if he sends it abroad like its some illegal arms sell anyway, this is the formal response from Eagle Dynamics:

    SpaceIL`s Beresheet space craft to land on the moon today

    Well sadly there was a main engine failure during the decent at around 30k ft. and Beresheet crashed on the moon around 5 minutes before touchdown. Good try though, and Israel joined the 'crashed on moon' club, and planted a flag there , just a bit deeper than planned. last photo received...

    Oculus Rift S Dumps IPD Adjustment in Favor of Marketing

    The more i read about the 'S' version the less interested i am about it , barely even a side grade basically the only reason they made it was because its cheaper and manufacturer and probably the slightly larger resolution is a minor cost compared to what they save from the changed from CV1

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    new and stronger GPUs just are not being pushed fast enough , VR still needs to grow before it can satisfy the needs for all types of games and even now high GPUs barely handle it honestly after so long since Oculus CV1 and Vive were released i expected we will be further ahead in both GPUs and VR

    Free-to-Play Games Were Responsible for 80% of 2018's Digital Game Revenues

    First thing , the definition of F2P is kind of misleading, For example i play DCS (a combat flight sim) which is technically F2P , but it only comes with 1 map and 1 plane , if you want more you need to buy, its not about pay to win , its the same as buying addons from 3rd party for MS Flight...
