    Naahh. Just read the comments section on most sites or Twitter in general and you will see that it is well on the way to ruin with or without patches.

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    So ... the people who hate on Amazon for wiping out local mom-and-pops are hating on Amazon for doing something that encourages shoppers to spend money at local mom-and-pops?

    Cryptocurrency Mining Slowdown Could Lead to GPU Price Cuts

    Since they were trying to break the rear window, it sounds like they were driven away from the driver early on by the fire.

    "Door Handles Wouldn't Work": Tesla Driver Dies in Burning Car after Crash

    I guess that you are more awesome than the people that were there. “Davie police spokeswoman Vivian Gallinal says the car hit some palm trees and burst into flames Sunday afternoon crash. An officer was nearby and tried to break the car’s window, but couldn’t get the driver out.” We had only a...

    "Door Handles Wouldn't Work": Tesla Driver Dies in Burning Car after Crash

    The problem here is that since the air bags did not deflate, It was damn hard to get the guy out of the car with a closed door before the fire halted the rescue. Whoever made the airbags has a lot of 'splainin to do.

    The Pentagon Wants to Replace Passwords with the Way You Move or Walk

    DoD? Yeah, right. The creation of a super-cookie that can't be deleted, and can follow you to any device, has to be the work of The Facebook, Google, and/or Verizon.

    GOG Ends Its Fair Price Package Program

    Myself included. The last time I bought games at release prices was years ago when I was heavy into playing with my clan. Today, I don't even consider anything not heavily discounted. That does not change that fact that there are plenty of people who are happy to pay the initial asking price for...

    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    If the public wanted Linux the OEMs would most certainly comply. However, users want what they are accustomed to, and has the best compatibility with what they already have. Until human nature changes or MS totally implodes Linux will always have at best 5% market share.

    The American Broadband Initiative Milestones Report

    I think that went nowhere because it generated a lot of RF noise. A lot of opposition lined up against it - astronomers, cell carriers, NATO.

    Congress is Holding a T-Mobile and Sprint Merger Hearing

    CDMA is on the way out so you won't have a choice soon. Verizon is migrating from it, and Sprint might not survive for long if the merger fails.

    Congress is Holding a T-Mobile and Sprint Merger Hearing

    Good idea to have the numbers 3 and 4 carriers merge to make a more viable number 3. Without the merger, Sprint could very well go under which would send more customers to AT&T and Verizon.

    AAA Study Claims Cold Weather Significantly Shortens EV Range

    Every time I seriously look into getting an EV the issue of range rears its ugly head. It just is not good enough yet for my purposes in 2019. That is what the AAA study is about - making sure that potential buyers take the further reduced range into consideration before buying. It has nothing...

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Because they are not selling extra range. Selling extra range would entail adding more or better battery. What they are doing is selling the same battery; only they will not sabotage it if a user pays more.

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    So Tesla takes the obviously weakest aspect of an EV - its range - and intentionally makes it worse ... I'm loving the fanboy defense of this.

    Ubisoft Changing Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC Following Forced Relationship Furore

    I barely played./paid attention to AC games - but isn't it a major plot point that the PC relives historical actions performed by his ancestors? That implies that some old fashioned hetero action had occurred.

    Star Control: Origins Has Been Removed from Stores Due to DMCA Take Down Notice

    How did these two get separated in the first place? It seems reasonable to believe that the original intent was for Accolade to market the StarControl IP for a period and pay royalties to the devs. If Paul and Fred can produce any documentation that this was not intended to be a perpetual...
