    Epic Games is being countersued by Google

    ...are you not entertained? Or, as Erek would have said - excited?

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

    I remember Kyle doing a video where he very clearly disclaims, "we aren't saying you should do it this way, or that it's the best way - but it's how we're going to do it." It was probably application of thermal paste or something.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Alita. Yes. Of course, my first (and only) impression of it was from the live action movie. But I enjoyed it.

    AMD X Apple unveil the Radeon W6800X Duo

    Eh. Certain use cases probably scale better than others. I am content to leave it in the rear view mirror. No support. Terrible scaling. Double the usual double investment now. I'm getting soft in my old age.

    New Spectre Flaws in Intel and AMD CPUs Affect Billions of Computers

    Big iron guys may be concerned with it. For the every man? Meh.

    Hut 8 Purchases $30M Worth of Nvidia's GPU Miners, Looks to Push Capacity to 1,600 Gigahash

    1,600 gigahash. Man, it makes my (former) operation look like a joke.

    X8DTI-LN4F - any processors worth putting in it?

    Yikes. Necro. I've since replaced all that stuff with Threadrippers.

    EA Announces Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    I will buy, eventually. It and Bioshock remaster are on my short list. I just don't have time to play anything these days.

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    Your answer to being angry about people buying too many graphics cards is to make spending on GPU's illegal. You do know this isn't insulin, right?

    Scalpers Have Sold 50,000 Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

    Hummm. Well. I'm not really feeling an upgrade for a while. I've been so busy at work - I haven't had time to play anything. I don't believe my machine has been on for other-than-work purposes in several months. There are millions of decent GPU's available, but if you want the Patek Philippe of...

    Intel Corporation Class Action Lawsuit - 7nm Woes

    Yeah, but it's not like they produced millions of bad airbags. They allegedly materially misrepresented an outlook to investors with the intent of inflating stock price. So, they said they have a new, better airbag on the way in the near term - when in fact they were having manufacturing...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    I guess this wouldn't work great for a mobile use - like an RV? I've been considering buying one, gutting it, putting comfy leather furniture and a wet bar in the back - then hire someone to drive me around on a road trip while I get wrecked in my mobile lounge.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    So. There's scalpers and there's scalpers. If I wanted one, and if it required standing in line for 5 hours to get (like FrgMstr mentioned with lines around buildings), then I'd pay someone MSRP +$10/hr or whatever for the product. That's not horrible. Now - doubling the price of the...

    Edward Snowden returns to Joe Rogan Experience

    The tempo shift is a very common characteristic of young professionals giving advocacy presentations designed to masquerade as informed and informative lecture. I have seen it many times in a professional capacity. Disclosure: I didn't watch the video. I just skipped through a few places to...

    The Great RTX 3080 Scalping event has begun!

    Alright. Alriiiiight. You've convinced me. I'm in for 8. They'll be on FS/FT as soon as they arrive. /S...maybe.

    GPU Market Gets Flooded With Used GeForce RTX 2080 Ti’s

    Way back when, you'd have had a sneak preview. On the other hand, that came with shackles aplenty. I imagine that takes a lot of the fun out of it.

    GPU Market Gets Flooded With Used GeForce RTX 2080 Ti’s

    I've got a 1080. Does fine. Make fun all you like - bothers me not a bit. I've had many, MANY GPU's. Right now, I'm good. Also, we are talking about - at least in the case of 3090 - a $1500 component. Ability to pay and enthusiasm should not be inextricably linked. I'm sure plenty of people...

    Cyberpunk 2077 MP monetization will make you happy to spend real money

    If hearing there are opportunities to spend money on in-game purchases makes people swear off the game...they probably weren't going to buy it anyways. That's ok - keep voting with your wallets. It's what I would do, if I had those convictions.

    Chinese developer unveils new 64-core CPU for 8-processor servers

    Joust: Lawful Neutral. In Star Wars, I'd have had so many medals on my Imperial uniform, I could've been mistaken for a Technicolor disco ball. ...unless someone made a compelling argument for a better system to be in place. It would probably have been some Rebellion girl that got my...
