    Infinity Reference 253 and R12 speakers 60% off

    Towers are $149 each and the R12 is $169 each. That's shipped. You will not get a better deal for a new 2.1 or 2.2 setup that will blow you away. I have had two of the R12 for a while now. Not the top of the line but you could easily spend a lot more for the same sound. They do the job though. I...

    MSN email listed on the darkweb. Attempts to sync have been made.

    What is the best solution when your email is on a list and you know people are trying to hack it? Should I just kill it? Or what? I don't trust passwords anymore. There is the Microsoft Authenticator app but I don't know if that is worth it. Thanks

    Need a sub $200 phone that my wife can't kill

    So what is the cheapest upgrade over my 2500K atm?

    Completely bewildered atm as to what build would be worth doing in the coming months. I know my 2500K is at EOL but have no idea what to get for gaming. I have a 980 and a BenQ 144hz 1080P btw. Those min frames are killing me in BF1 and pubg.

    Dragon Touch M8 tablet keeps rebooting

    I have had an issue, even after hard reset, of my tablet turning off the display, the power off button appearing or the damn thing just restarting itself constantly.

    Been playing it quite a bit. The game is fun as a casual or if you want to get serious with comp play. I enjoy the faction wars ONLY with a decent crew in TS though. The elite players are VERY good. If you are just pubbing though, no worries. The monsters stay away. Free to play. I have not...
