    Tesla Largely Responsible for Slide in US Home Solar Sales

    I've been seeing this on the G feed and I've yet to read it. If they don't mention that tax breaks and the amount for paying back into the grid changes in the blurb then I feel it's going to be myopic speculation.

    Quake Champions is Getting a New Champion

    Oh shoot, ti's been released already? I keep bashing it as an upcoming game. I should switch my tense.

    Google Has Launched Three New Photography Apps

    I still don't understand releasing things only on your competitor's platform or first. It's not like the play store doesn't have the ability to target specific phones. It just makes your own platform seem inferior.

    Virginia’s $40 Toll Road Better Be the Future of Driving

    I hope this isn't the future and it dies a quick death. I live in the burbs but grew up in the city. I have friends on the north side of the city and I am in the south burbs. I rarely have or want to go into the city in the morning rush but there have been times. With congestion charge it...

    Netflix Is Not Going to Kill Piracy, Research Suggests

    Of course Netflix won't stop piracy; the biggest reason is that the industry won't let it. The content they will allow Netflix to have or not is a big impact. All the articles of "oh my gosh what's leaving netlfix" shows this. Also there are no deals that seem to be that this is where older...

    Google Says Nearly 250,000 Web Logins Hijacked Each Week

    This isn't about what someone is looking at. Google becomes suspicious of our activity, causing a prompt to verify you're human. If I get that page and look at the other info they suggest things like malicious traffic. However they don't tell you what exactly, I could have a bot on my network...

    Google Says Nearly 250,000 Web Logins Hijacked Each Week

    I can't be too happy with Google and security. Because I am an admin for a school and I use a web filter that relies on SSL inspection via MitM, however Google becomes suspicious of our traffic and breaks that. However I cannot get any information on whats causing this to fix it. Nothing at all...

    Ubisoft: PS5, Next Xbox Are at Least Two Years Away

    I'd hope with the refresh systems that we'd almost reset the clock and be closer to 3 to 4, years. I'm still hurting form XBL games I can't have anymore and I am not happy with what's been done with current generation. I think I'd be better served with leaving them alone.

    Verizon Wants FCC to Ban States From Protecting Your Privacy

    Their network has been crap for... a while now. Dropped calls in Downtown Chicago, low signal and terrible throughput. Not to mention how they hijack Youtube and FORCE everything to go to the lowest (240p) resolution. Last time I jumped it up to 1080 because i needed to see detail, it buffered...

    Facebook Denies 'listening' to Conversations

    I have to kind of call bull on this. Rather it's them directly or an ad partner though them, I think it has happened to me. One night I was at bar trivia and I was discussing, umm, boobs sort of. We got into a conversation about bindings, and I brought up my favorite example of Christina Ricci...

    Amazon Is Testing Its Own Delivery Service to Rival FedEx and UPS

    How is this news? Amazon has been doing a lot of it's own shipping for a while, they have their own end to end for it and several planes if I recall correctly. I've got a package today that is coming all by Amazon, granted it's probably coming from the warehouse not that far from me, but I have...

    Microsoft Shutting Groove Music, Moving Users to Spotify

    Should have stuck with Zune, which is still the back end you know. I look around recently and still found Zune mentioned in the error messages. I tested G music for free and got in on the low rate, then I decided to get a family plan for the same price is my old Zune subscription and give it to...

    Microsoft Explains Why Edge Has So Few Extensions

    The Secret Cost of Pivoting to Video

    Video has it's place but there are places where it shouldn't be. When the video is annoying (the people in it, how it's produced and so on) it's something I try to avoid. If I can get through the printed article faster than that article I will try to avoid them or the site. If I have to sit...

    The Duke, Xbox’s Biggest Controller of All Time, Will Be in Stores Soon

    All it's glory? Wasn't the Xbox going after the Dreamcast and had a memory card slot or two in the controller as well? (nope, didn't read the article and I'm not near my controllers)

    Arris Modem Comes with Three Free Backdoors

    I didn't read the blurb enough and it took me until to today to realize that this includes AT&T. I have no choice but to use their hardware (and be charged for it in certain circumstances) One thing I don't like about them too is they seem to be able to open Browser windows. When the VDSL...

    Don’t Use Windows 10 to Move Data on Your Android Phone

    I've actually had this happen. I thought it was user error and I was glad I had a backup or had previously copied things by FTP. I was doing things with 1000s of files in a folder about a few gigs big,lets say around 11, when I moved stuff it was coming up around 6. It was also not faster to...

    Backblaze: Hard Drive Stats for Q2 2017

    So I left Seagate for storage many years ago, however I've been using them for external storage and I'm doing so right now. I need to increase this storage and they seem to be the only game in town. I really hope I don't get burned. Right now I have 1.5TB in a USB3 - connector powered unit...

    Redditor Archived Nearly 2 Million GBs of Porn to Test Amazon's Unlimited Cloud Storage

    So far they say they are keeping free photo storage and they recognize the thumbs in my Raw files so they were freely stored before. Videos aren't stored :/ I was looking into backblaze as someone else suggested. I have not tried them either and they have an all or nothing approach but if you...

    Stanford University Dumps Java as Introductory Programming Language

    I think as long as you get a strong understanding of OOL programing and fundamentals it doesn't matter what you start with. Start with something widely used and you can get sort of instant gratification then move on. The second language and so on, yeah should be something that's going to be...

    Introducing Backup and Sync for Google Photos and Google Drive

    2.2GB? I do that in a weekend if I have something I go to where I'm only mildly interented. My photo collection is - hold on - 1.04TB and growing. (there is some video in there) I use Risilio(sp?) to sync and hope that with the policy change my raw pictures still count as free storage via amazon.
