    Microsoft: New CPUs Will Require Windows 10

    Never been a huge MS fan, but just always used it cause it was what was around for me since windows 3.1 days. Now it looks like it's finally time to move on, especially after the 8.1 support dropping BS.

    Google's Creepy Plan To Kill The Password

    This... I have only ever had one account compromised, and it was my own stupidity. Stop forcing certain password types, let me determine my level of security needed for my information. It's even more annoying at work, now that they don't let us recycle PWs and I have to get a new one every 30...

    AMD Accuses NVIDIA's Gameworks Of Being 'Tragic' And 'Damaging'

    I recently switched to Nvidia cards for the first time since 2006, thanks to the BB deal on the gtx 970s, little faster than my 7990 was. All Nvidia has to do is drop their prices and they would finally tighten AMDs self made noose.

    EVGA GTX 980 - $236.54 for Price Matching ONLY

    BB will surprise ya... I bought a 3770k and z77 ud3h from them a couple years ago for about the same price as Amazon and technically paid nothing for it thanks to video game flipping between BB and Gamestop. Turned a couple Arkham City's/Rage's/Bulletstorms/FFXIII-2's into 1800$ in credit...

    EVGA GTX 980 - $236.54 for Price Matching ONLY

    Problem now is, the memo went out... not to mention BB removed it from their website for shipping and in store pickup (might get lucky randomly running into one after people forget the memo) I wish I could have picked up 2 gtx 980s instead of these 970s but eh

    I wish I got in on the gtx 980s... but I guess I will be ok with gtx 970s... The question is, should I replace my 7990 with them? orrrrr??? Hmm going to be a rough few days of deciding.

    PlayStation Now Is Still Way Too Expensive

    This is why i always keep my old systems hahaha... So much cheaper to play the games on ps2 or ps, or dreamcast/etc then to buy reboots/blah blah. Everything since my SNES is still chugging along strong! I even break out the ps2 a couple times a year for Everblue 2

    Trace repair on motherboard

    Took it out, tried it on cardboard with multiple sticks of ram (different brands/speeds etc,) tried it on 3 different psu's, etc etc. Also stand offs in both cases are already in from factory. *edit* New pictures: Took a couple more shots with a much better camera. Hopefully this...

    Trace repair on motherboard

    I was using my note 3, I will have to break out my big camera and try to get some better macro shots. It appears to be superficial, as if I just scratched the protective layer, but I don't see why it would be shorting out otherwise. I will try to take some better more detailed pictures...

    So wait, there are CD snobs now? It's like vinyl snobs in the reign of CDs. I haven't owned a standalone cd player since the 90s, and just use them in my car these days. What makes this thing better than say my optical out on my ps3/ps4/etc?

    Electronic Health Records Ripe For Theft

    Longtime healthcare worker here... Almost anyone can get in and out of a place if they're wearing a name tag/badge of some kind and the right uniform. My hospital is starting to lock more areas and require key cards for every area a patient accidentally wander to.
