    The Road to PS5 - Deep Dive into PlayStation 5's system architecture

    I have something to add for those going on about PCs versus console market saturation. I would consider people gaming on tablets and phones to be "PC gaming" in the touch input device interface. In this since, consoles are not really in the lead are they? Dedicated gaming PCs are the rich man's...

    Newegg philosophy: 3 day delivery does not include 2 days it take to get in mail!

    They may be using temporary workers that do not properly scan packages. In my area they have been using temps to run packages heavily around the holidays.

    Newegg philosophy: 3 day delivery does not include 2 days it take to get in mail!

    It is a Chinese business. Try to avoid buying from Chinese companies. From organ harvesting the Muslims in Northwest China, to authoritarian social credit scores, to stifling any concept of free speech, they cannot be supported without contributing to the enslavement of humanity.

    Chris Hook and Heather Lennon, former Radeon Staffers have left Intel

    Perhaps a paranoid manager is thinking corporate espionage is going on as well. It is rather high stakes and spying is more probable in high tech fields since they would already possess the skills to do so most likely.

    Do you use all the motherboard standoffs in your build?

    I always fear doing damage in any way so I use full anti-ESD gear along with all standoffs. I also pull out when I screw and the wife is on birth control pills for extra redundancy. Better safe than sorry.

    Microsoft Pulls Windows 10 October 2018 Update after Reports of Mass File Deletion

    Sounds like bad management to push an inadequately tested update. The nightmare would have gotten worse if they didn't pull the update though. My windows 10 pro got hosed from the last major update behind this one so I never got to try this one. :unsure:

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    I think the pricing meets what might be terrible yields. They are consistently out of stock everywhere concerning the 2080 ti. The regular 2080, not so much. Is it worth it to go from the 1080 ti to a standard midrange cooler RTX 2080 when running 1440p?

    Amazon Removes Nazi-Themed Goods from Its Store

    I get your parallel. I just see it as the next step after they used Rules for Radicals since the seventies. The Antifa handbook takes the same approach on the social side internally but adds violence and intimidation towards external threats to their cause. This is causing a schism within the...

    Amazon Removes Nazi-Themed Goods from Its Store

    You are talking about Antifa which actually received support from prominent DNC members until being classified as a terrorist organization. Sadly, Keith Ellison still promoted one of the handbooks of Antifa in a tweet. This was shortly after he was made #2 at the DNC. It was a book made...

    Amazon Removes Nazi-Themed Goods from Its Store

    I totally agree. The far right(alt right) and the activist left play the same game of identity politics which is the precursor to genocide. The activist left is just powerful enough to try and pull it off since they have the numbers and funding. The alt right has very small numbers and lacks...

    Amazon Removes Nazi-Themed Goods from Its Store

    The Dallas shooter was BLM. Many cop killers are BLM but it is fairly rare(a couple a month in a population as large as the USA is fairly insignificant). BLM membership is so large that it is hard to say which actions are in fact committed by an attack planned by it instead of an indoctrinated...

    March 20th, eBay is doing 15% off everything from 9am - 7pm Pacific Time. Use coupon PSPRINGTIME

    These codes have me ordering from ebay far more often than I would normally. I guess rakuten is putting the heat on them since amazon isn't known to do many promocodes. Rakuten is promotion driven like department stores were back when face-to-face sales was king. It is nice to see the niches...

    Office Depot To Buy CompuCom For $1 Billion

    Within the last year or so I have had great experiences with Office Depot. Their rewards deals are awesome. Where else can you buy stuff like two packs of AAA batteries for the cost of tax plus 2 cents after an automatic rebate(no application or form to fill out) that comes back in three months?

    I thought Office Depot only bought OfficeMax. Staples being their only real direct competitor. My corporate discounts work at the two former and not Staples.

    US Judge Recommends Blocking of Sci-Hub from ISPs and Search Engines

    Does the American Chemical Society pay for these studies or just publish them? Are these studies paid for completely with tax dollars? Perhaps they should change their business model to a more open to the public and upfront cost for access. I was looking to see the cost of access and it looks...

    Tesla Is Sending Battery Packs to Storm-Ravaged Puerto Rico

    The federal government is doing what it can and is not prepared to rebuild a territory and it never was. The locals plus contractors will have to do that. Funding to assist is a good idea but there is no fast solution. Washington DC pays federal income tax and plenty of other taxes. Puerto Rico...

    Google Employee's Anti-Diversity Manifesto Goes “Internally Viral”

    I don't have a dog in the fight with the subject matter of that disagreement. You attacked them first by questioning their education level and then stated yours implying some sort of superiority and acting like the standard ivory tower type. If you have a strong argument in a debate then you do...

    Google Employee's Anti-Diversity Manifesto Goes “Internally Viral”

    I am in NC as well and I would think most areas of the country would find cussing your boss out would cause you to get fired. Wouldn't such hostility cause issues in the workplace. Even bosses at my company can get fired for cussing out subordinates since it is threatening and causes a hostile...

    Amazon is Telling Third-Party Sellers to Speed Delivery by up to 40 Percent

    NASA Using Two 1960s Vintage Jets To Chase The Eclipse

    I only know how difficult the SR-71 was to maintain and not the U-2. I have never been through the maintenance literature on the U-2 but I have been through the old SR-71 repair documentation. The required usage of titanium tools on the airframe is a hassle. Leaking fuel immediately after...

    NASA Using Two 1960s Vintage Jets To Chase The Eclipse

    The SR-71 Blackbird was an incredibly difficult plane to maintain(due to titanium and space allowances for thermal expansion) so I can understand why they were not used. The SR-71 Blackbird leaked on the ground worse than Chinooks and that is saying something.

    Those that got The Crew for free, here is the WILD RUN DLC for it $14.99 + one FREE game.

    Those LEDs look like they would give me eyestrain. I'd assume the LEDs are turned off when you are gaming and so on. Honestly, lots of LEDs in my face like that in the dark trigger migraines for me. :(

    Wasteland 3 Funded In Just Three Days

    That trailer was terrible. I hope they change the game mechanics, voice acting, and facial gestures to be less "Saturday morning cartoon". Or is that the appeal? Maybe it is just so preAlpha that the trailer was whatever they could cram together before asking for money.

    Norway Banning New Sales Of Gas-Powered Cars By 2025

    In ICE it is not an explosion but a controlled burn. An explosion within an ICE is called detonation which does damage to an engine and is a rare malfunction. I am not an engineer with a strong background in ICE but I know enough to discuss the basics. Look at ratio of miles driven to incident...

They can go into thermal runaway. I have seen...

    HOT FIRE! Acer Predator x34 (GSYNC) - Refurbished - $729.99 SHIPPED

    Big gamble with a warranty that short. Especially coming from Acer. Good luck guys, I wish you all the best of luck. Too risky for me. :( *EDIT* Would a low cost third party warranty lower the risk? Squaretrade possible or worth it?

    Free Chipotle Burrito

    They have a can to the left of the register that says "Tips" that you can throw cash in. I put $2 to $5 every trip I have cash in my wallet.

    Free Chipotle Burrito

    Free Chipotle Burrito

    I eat their chicken burrito about 5 times a week. It's great at the location I go to but there is a terrible ghetto one across town that picks the bitchiest black women on the planet to work there. I am inconveniencing them by ordering. You know the type. I wish it was legal to pull out my...
