    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Lots of good (and some bad) thoughts and opinions here. Speaking for myself... and no I haven't 100% fleshed this out... For the "free" platforms over ~50M, I would like accounts to be authenticated somehow, tied to a real person, via a PKI or CAC card or some-such, which you could not change...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    Try this approach: Explore as much as practical and to a point, avoid the story quests... you will eventually be forced to switch over to the story quests due to being under-leveled. You seem to get more XP for the story, so when the majority of exploration seems to end up with red skulls and...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    I'm surprised nobody has brought up freesync vs g-sync. Freesync IMO makes the case here to go with the VII vs the 2080.

    Criminals Are Still Exploiting SS7 Cellular Network Flaws

    Sorry, nothing can be done. Consumer protection = regulation and that's a bad word so just accept loss of life savings. Besides, if the common man doesn't fully understand intercept 2 factor SS7 then that's his fault, amirite?

    CalTech Builds a Drone With Legs

    Yeah... so it's not if we all die, it's when.... and the when just got sooner... a cyberdine T-800 wasn't bad enough... now it flys as well, because of course.

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I sure hope they don't "Shannara Chronicles" The Witcher... Call me cynical, but I read "stopped playing the game so we could create our own visual adaption" as not a good sign. Then I saw the picture of the actors and thought... here we go again.... I hope I'm wrong.

    Meet the Chatbot That Trolls Telemarketers

    Whatever we do, please don't legislate any regulation with teeth, otherwise polliticans might get less dark money *gasp* Besides, we all know any regulation is job killing bad, best to just let pure unadulterated capitalism run amok. Actually surprised we haven't shuttered consumer finance...

    California Introduces Bot Banning Bill

    Having a hard time understanding your logic. You'd have to do that whether you thought it was a bot or not, the only thing that changes here is you know. Unless I'm reading this wrong, you'd be able to see the bots in a facebook thread. Wait... are you a bot? :P

    Fixjeiphone NL Presents the World's First Teardown of the Apple iPhone XS

    Very cool video. I snagged the Xs, should be coming today. Only did it because AT&T threw in a free 8 plus (that came yesterday) and it's a good time for wife and I to upgrade... she's still on a Oct 2012 original iphone 5 and my 6 has been having issues with the screen going blank and battery...

    Apple Leaks Unnanounced iPhones

    Only care because the 8 plus price should drop... wife broke her 6 plus so she's back on a vanilla launch 5 for about 8 months now. I am not a Mac fan but I like the iphones, mostly because when it comes to security all the issues I hear about are on android...

    How do you feel about Nvidia pricing on the new RTX video cards?

    That's the thing though.... you pretty much *had* to pay that if you wanted to play the game. Whereas now, you can play the game at 1080p 60 FPS for a fraction of what a new card (and monitor that can utilize it) cost.

    It's been 8 years since I bought a monitor - question

    This is the crap that is keeping me on a PS4 Pro vs. building a nice Ryzen 2 or upcoming 9700K system.... the damn video cards and monitors! For my thinking, the only reason to do this and spend those dollars is to get out of the 1080p and 60Hz world.... Only thing that makes sense to me is a...

    Rant: The issue as I see it.

    No I get that and can accept that absolutely... but I want $600 video cards back. Heck, remember when we thought that was obscene? ... and my 27" monitor, which is just awesome for what it is, was $150 on sale. Does it really cost $500 more to make it 2K and have a 144Hz refresh rate when...

    Rant: The issue as I see it.

    A GTX 1070 with a 2500K will net you MIN 55+ FPS on almost every gaming title available @1080p high or in most cases, ultra settings. Want more? That leaves either 120/144/165Hz monitor gaming and/or 2K/4K gaming. Want to play 144Hz @2K? Oh you gotta get Nsync please drop $700 for a new 27"...

    AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen 2 2700X Zen+ CPU Review @ [H]

    A few questions: - so do all the features work on x370 same same x470? If so, what's the difference between the boards? - What do we miss B350? Precesion boost overdrive what is that? Ajust amps? Any real world need for that? - 2700X is 105w 2700 is 65w, is power draw from the wall less...

    AMD Ryzen Gen 2 Processors and Motherboards Available for Pre-Order Today

    Very hyped about this... only reason I'm not pre-ordering is I have a trip planned right after launch. I'm doing a new build, it's past time. That Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Gaming x470 is the sweet spot! Going 2700X, I see it as $30 more for the Wraith cooler, which is all I should need for 4.3...

    Amazon Shares Fall After Report Trump Wants to Curb its Power

    Great quote from the article: "Trump has criticized Amazon over taxes and jobs in the past, without offering evidence." Read: Trump doesn't like what the WP says about him, so he's going after the owner, because The Whackos love capitalism, except when their cult leader says it bad or sad...

    Have crappy loser 1700X, options for a change?

    As someone who also lost the silicon lottery with my 2500K, I say keep it and deal, but that's probably not what you're going to do so..... Sell it NOW, this week. Use the 5930K for the next month. Then grab a Ryzen 2 and a better B450/X470 MB next month. No way would I go blue or same gen...

    AMD CPU Attack Vectors and Vulnerabilities
