    Julian Assange Arrested

    Here you go. More routinely they go and shade the truth rather than outright lie about stuff and try to promote stuff like Seth Rich murder conspiracies. They have given good or interesting information in the past, but over the years they've lost creditability. My bad, I'd read elsewhere...

    Julian Assange Arrested

    Uh your "source" is Wikileaks which Assange controls. That would be like if I cited a blog that I wrote as "evidence" to prove a point. If you want to do that sort of thing then fine but you can't claim to be honest or reasonable to do so since doing that sort of thing is a obvious no-no.

    Julian Assange Arrested

    And when they finally did look what happened: their questions were screened by embassy staff and they weren't even allowed to question him directly. Did you miss that part too earlier when I mentioned the 2016 interview? I called it a joke for pretty clear cut reasons. Its probably why the...

    Julian Assange Arrested

    You were claiming they never interviewed him and refused to do so full stop dude. That is the logic that is wrong here. And newer info is always going to take precedent over old info. Which is again also very different from your earlier claims that the Swedes were the refusing to do to it...

    Julian Assange Arrested

    Nope. Read the link about the 2016 interview. The Swedish investigator actually went to the embassy in 2016 to talk to him and actually was on site there: Yeah that is from 2011, read the link from the 2016 interview dude. And the UK authorities recommending the Swedish authorities to not...

    Julian Assange Arrested

    He was never charged because he fled the country and evaded officials and then eventually hid in that Ecuadoran embassy for years. This is completely false. You're looking at some conspiracy Q types as sources if you're reading this stuff. Because he ran out the clock on the statue of...

    “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” Production Put on Hold

    Mike Cernovich isn't a SJW, the guy who was mainly responsible for helping to get Gunn fired initially, he is alt-Right internet celebrity. SJW's mostly didn't care about this faux-outrage since they knew Gunn was being sarcastic and trolling in those original comments. Disney execs pulled the...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    That approach only works with DDR3 ECC DRAM so far. It hasn't been shown to work with DDR4 ECC DRAM. The DRAM OEM's were aware of Rowhammer type attacks in the early DDR3 days and hardened DDR4 ECC DRAM to make it at least resistant to it (they claim its proofed against it). The guys who...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    This isn't correct. There are white papers from the P!!! and K7 Athlon era talking about doing attacks like this. And I can vaguely recall some people voicing worries about this sort of thing all the way back in the 90's when the Pentium Pro came out. It did take a long time to make those...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    I agree! However I think this may be one of those few times. Do you mean this one (SPOILER) only or Meltdown and Spectre too? I believe they haven't commented on SPOILER but hardware corrections for Meltdown and Spectre should be implemented for Icelake and Coffeelake already has them...

    Fujitsu Document Leaks More 9th Gen Intel CPUs

    That 35W i9 9900T is only supposed to have a base clock of 1.7Ghz. What a joke. Yeah it can boost fairly high but it'll become thermally limited so quickly, even with just the single core boost, that it hardly matters. All I can think of is that they're scavenging dies that don't clock so...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    In fairness to Intel they only learned about this exploit at the very end of last year. There wouldn't be enough time to implement a hardware fix of some sort in any of their upcoming or current CPUs. If the memory model itself requires large changes in order to implement a fix that doesn't...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    This is grossly foolish to say. These attacks are going to get simplified, evolved, and distributed just like all the other exploits that have become available over the years and eventually make their way into the more common virus kits. There is nothing about them that prevents that sort of...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    I've been working just fine in it for decades without being fired somehow. Might know more than you think I do! Whatever "real world" experience you or I have doesn't much matter here though. Its totally irrelevant really. We're both essentially talking about what should be happening and...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    Contracts constantly get renegotiated and/or sued over due to being unfair or outright illegal or just because people change their minds. You sign a contract? So what? You're not signing your soul over nor is there any sort of moral imperative for the individual to follow everything to the...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    Off hand InrangeTV's has had to disable comments on some of their highest viewed vids (relating to AK and AR15 dirt tests) due to trolls and they're still going OK. There are others if you bother to look for them. Its not that hard to find them. There is your problem right there. You're...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    Pretty sure it was developed in either Washington state or California. But even then in a At-Will state its STILL perfectly legit for workers to write a protest letter and try to change their employers' minds. Noope. "Just find another job in this shit economy oh yeah and maybe up end your...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    Nope. I was just pointing out you've got no reasonable basis, in any way shape or form (ie. legal, ethical, moral), to be making the claims you're making. "Just shut up and work for your Petty Tyrant no matter what they do or their goals" is complete nonsense any way you look at it. Sure it...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    Money-wise YT has been doing horrible for years. The actual financial details are kept private as far as I know but historically YT has never really made money due to the cost of the servers and bandwidth. The benefit for Google is they use it as a "loss leader" of sorts to get and keep...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    Except bitchute is terrible. I gave it a try for months when some of the gun-tubers got serious about trying to decentralize off of YT and half the time it flat out doesn't work. Even when it does the quality was often horrible and downloads were slow. The awful truth of the matter is there...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    They probably don't want to take responsibility for policing the comments. They already get blamed for censorship with the relatively mild amount of stuff they already do. Also taking action like that by using all the data they're collecting would turn people's attention to it in a way that...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    Well strictly speaking turning comments on or off is absolutely control. Its a harsh and blunt instrument, the "nuclear option" as it were, but its definitely control. Its fair if you don't like it but I think its unreasonable to assume its going to kill YT or something. People, including YT...

    Bodycount goals are totally ineffective at changing a country or ethnic groups' minds though. Vietnam proved that.

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    I don't think the sort of social interaction that goes on in YT comments is much of a draw anymore. Maybe back in the early days. But now? They're almost always terrible. Not at all easy to quickly browse either. I'm sure some people will act like its the end of the world but there channels...

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    Yeah its kinda harsh and a blunt instrument of control here but just disabling comments is easy and quick. It'll make commenters mad but most YT comments are terrible in general and most of the YT content creators seem to feel its mostly pointless to even bother trying to read most of them. I...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    Except nowhere in the Constitution is written that workers are required to do so. There is also no moral or ethical standard that is reasonable that requires them to do so either. In fact historically in the US its been normal and seen as good thing, yes even going back to the Revolutionary...

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    As others have noted they did already try to take action (the petition) but its absurd to expect them all to insta-quit and try to find jobs in this job market and given the cost of living and general lack of savings most have. More so if any of them have families too. There is also no reason...

    Whaaaat? YT demonetizing channels for bad reasons doesn't mean they're going to be owned and operated in part or wholly by the govt. (that is what Socialism is BTW) from now on dude. Its still a private company and so gets regulated as such and a key part of that is what they say goes when it...

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

    Being owned by them doesn't mean they have any say in what Vox Media does elsewhere with its other companies. Quite the opposite actually. In other words it'd be like blaming iD for something Zenimax or Bethesda did. Vox the news site doesn't have anything to do with this story at all.

    AMD Dismisses NVIDIA's DLSS for Its "Image Artifacts" and "Harsh Scaling"

    Gameplay is certainly a decidedly huge factor in determining whether a game is good but DLSS is strictly about improving GPU performance and made no claims for doing much of anything about improving gameplay. You got a good point and all its just way OT is what I'm saying.

    "I Don't Want Your Respect": NetherRealm Responds to Mortal Kombat "Going Woke"

    Yeah I'm not seeing the controversy. Just as customers and ask for certain things or complain about certain things developers are just as free to call BS if they so choose. At that point its fine if the customers don't buy the game, that too is their choice. Getting mad over CG tittay...

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

    Vox Media and Vox are 2 different things. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vox_Media Vox is the Lefty news site while Vox Media is the owner and was started by another group of people in 2005. Its Vox Media that are acting like idiots here and abusing the DMCA take down system not the Vox news site.

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

    The DMCA was written by the big corps with the lawyers to benefit them and it passed because they lobbied heavily for years to get it passed. It was always obvious what the DMCA would do and that it was a bad law but to play the "govt. always bad" card here is obtuse. Same way the Sonny Bono...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    Actually Fudzilla and WCCFT also said Navi was going to be Q1 2019 back in late 2018. Them all saying it doesn't make it true of course and they ARE rumor sites but to say only AdoredTV was saying Navi was coming in Q1 2019 is nonsense.

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    The wafer contamination only effected TSMC's 16 and 12nm processes. 7nm was unaffected. It was also only effecting ~10K wafers and the fab where the problem occurred puts out 100K+ wafers a month. So somebody probably got fired but its a blip on radar at best either which way. You got some...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    Supposedly not. The most recent other rumors about Navi was that there was some bug that required a respin of either the metal or silicon layers and that it was supposed to have originally been a Q1 product and would now be a late Q2/early Q3 (June-July) product. This newer rumor is odd since...

    Future Processors Could Circulate Coolant Between 3D Chip Stacks

    Chip substrates are relatively poor conductors of heat. Much worse than a IHS. The chip substrate also has to have the pins or pads on the opposite side to connect to the socket as well which will reduce its ability to transfer heat even more. So that idea is unworkable even for single...
