    Amazon Denies Accusations Of 'Brutal' Worker Treatment

    Ohhh, how true your post is! This is exactly what is happening. Thanks man, I am glad that there are still people with open eyes. To add to it, the laptop is actually being phased out in place of the remote login. Look! Now you can login from ANY device, ANYWHERE! Look!

    President Pushes For More Diversity In Tech

    I know. This is so stupid. At least in the western world, girls have the same opportunity to go into tech as guys. Why push them? If they get interested, they'll go to these jobs. I don't see people crying for more diversity in taxi drivers, nurses or, as someone mentioned earlier, firefighting...

    Batman: Arkham Knight NVIDIA GameWorks Batmobile Video

    Hard to boycott this game :) The real question, though, is - will it support 3D Vision? Those games look so amazing in S3D.

    The Crazy Training Schedule Of Pro Gamers

    Not sure why you're calling us clowns. You seem quite aggressive about this, I don't think there's point to further discussion. If you are in a position of hiring people, and you deem high-profile pro-gamers more worthy than college graduates for the position - it's your choice. As it is now...

    The Crazy Training Schedule Of Pro Gamers

    You are talking solely about soft skills. The other side of the coin, usually the more important one (depending on the field, of course) are the hard skills. Yes, they can dedicate, work hard, focus...but what can they actually do? That's the important part. The skills you mention are absolutely...

    The Crazy Training Schedule Of Pro Gamers

    Well, I wouldn't go that far as you could say the same thing about any "real" athlete, the difference being that they get many more dollars to wear Nike's "pro athlete" sneakers festooned with the latest and greatest in rubber-tech :) They also get upwards of millions in wages but why is that...

    You can't, you can only maintain such state for a short period. Doing it this way you are slowly ruining yourself for the long term, especially at this age, Drugs are no solution, they just worsen your health. There are many studies about how much sleep a human being should get and most point at...

    DIY Star Wars BB-8 Droid

    My initial impression of the robot was also mixed, it's a tad too cutesy but it's growing on me and we'll see what it can do in the movie. The movies so far are very promising though, they definitely give off the SW vibe in my eyes. Can't wait.

    Amazon Workers Must Sign 18-Month Non-Compete Agreements

    That is applaudable what you did. Respect for courage to point out and stand up to something that is blatantly against the law. There need to be more people like this.

    Are Smartphones Making Our Children Mentally Ill?

    Yes, you're right. That's what she advocates, that parents take more control of the net usage time of their kids, a frontier that is still new to many and that many do not handle properly.

    Are Smartphones Making Our Children Mentally Ill?

    Very interesting article that I agree with. What worries me, though, are the kinds of responses on this comments's almost like she's talking about many of the responders here... Guys, she clearly stated that she's not against the internet, but warns about complete alienation and...

    Canadians to Be Allowed to 'Pick and Pay' TV Channels

    well, dude, exactly, welcome to my world! Rogers charges me $10 just cause I wanted that one channel... Not only that, in order to get this package, I had to sign up for the highest cable plan! They did give me a nice discount though, otherwise I would probably bail a long time ago.

    Tesla's Model S Getting 'Autopilot' Mode In Three Months

    Guys, relax, there's a huge catch when you read the article. "He's also careful to point out this isn't true self-driving, just very powerful automatic steering (it was announced alongside the dual-motor Model S in October). The downside? It's only available on highways, and it requires one...

    Apple’s Trick for Using “As Little Gold As Possible” In Its $17k Watch

    How The Islamic State Is Using Social Media

    man, big deal, anybody has access to social media now and cheap phones can take decent photos and videos, it's no wonder they're doing it. There have been videos from Bin Laden 13 years ago as well. Anyone with a brain realises that they're just cowards fighting guerilla warfare from their silly...

    3D Is Dead. Will 4k And 8k TV Make It?

    Heck, I hope they make it, but given the current situation, it's really hard to stay positive. Like the header said, today's stations still have trouble delivering true HD, heck, in Canada HD still feels like luxury in cable. It should be a frickin standard everywhere by now, seeing standard def...

    Google Chairman: "The Internet Will Disappear"

    Even if taken out of context, it's kinda obvious he cannot mean it in a literal sense, more like "the internet as we know it will disappear".
