    Netflix working on live action Dragon's Lair movie

    I hated that "game". It was just playing back video clips. Move the wrong way, you die. Based on laser disc, so in between motion sequences, was a brief interruption. Horrible "game", imho.

    Slightly Mad Studios Reveals the Final Design of the Mad Box

    How do you announce the box 3 years ahead of time? If it's 3 years, then you obviously haven't designed the actual equipment yet. Also, "hey, we are three years from building actual equipment/finalizing the electronics, but we've been working hard on the BOX. It's gonna be awesome, because the BOX!

    Google Says It Is Discontinuing the Chromecast Audio

    Google Says It Is Discontinuing the Chromecast Audio

    Idiots! I have 4. I've got them connected to old a/v receivers in 4 different areas of the house. I can walk from one to room to the other and they play seamless in unison. It was by far the cheapest way to do what I wanted, and I have ZERO INTEREST IN FUCKING A SMART SPEAKER.. I also don't want...

    Intel i7 9700K and i9 9900K Leaks Showcase “Insane” Core Turbo Speeds

    I love competition from AMD. What I hate about it though, is it's obvious that when there is no competition, Intel is happy to dole out miniscule improvements from generation to generation, until they are forced to do otherwise. Pretty sure they are/have been sitting on some seriously advanced...

    Pass the Visine Please

    As someone who owns a chlorine pool, which nobody uses but me, and I've never peed in it, AND it's gated. I call bullshit on this article. Hotel Pool? Community Pool? Sure. Blanket saying " When we go swimming and our eyes turn red, it’s because swimmers have peed in the water." is just...

    Latency: Why Typing on Old Computers Just Feels Better

    Seems to me it might have something to do with complexity of the operating system. Yes, computers are much faster, but they also have more processes to share cpu time between, GUI to run, etc. Old non multitasking operating systems are sitting there just waiting for input, responding to...

    Amen. I get enough of this shit on facebook, various news websites, don't need it here.

    “Anemic” iPhone 8 Demand Drags Apple Shares Lower

    Ive got a radical idea. Make a phone with all the existing features + focus on making it easier for people to keep as long as they want it by: Making it so they can change the battery Make it more durable out of the box But instead, they've trained people on the 'perma-rent" model

    Google Quietly Shuts Down Home Mini Feature That Quietly Records Everything

    Back in 2001, I worked in HQ Air Force Special Operations Command. Way back then, they warned that phones , which back then weren't very smart, but were becoming so, could be hijacked to listen 24x7 by "nefarious people", and so you couldnt even bring a phone in the building. It all sounded...

    Bill Gates Regrets Control-Alt-Delete Key Command

    I have never once in over 30 years thought twice about ctrl alt delete. For what it does it's perfect. It's impossible to do it on accident, which is what you want for a system interrupt key sequence. It's not like you have to stretch your fingers across the keyboard in some almost impossible...

    Samsung Tweets Out Galaxy Note 8 Picture?

    Is the battery user replaceable? Still loving my PAID FOR note 4, which has needed at least two new batteries. Tired of the phone companies trying to create a permanent rent to own situation... battery dies , new phone is out, upgrade! Pay $$/month for xx months, repeat.

    iPhone 7 Has 'Sold More Sluggishly Than Expected'

    Company leadership is probably scratching it's head. For everyone else on the planet, it's pretty obvious. It's not just the Iphone, but the Macbook Pro, and the whole company is sliding downwards. They aren't giving people what they want, and they have some obsession with taking things away...

    HBO Getting Serious About Game Of Thrones Piracy

    this is a dead horse. Make it more accessible at reasonable prices with or without cable packages, and you'll sell a shit load more and wont be worried about the lawbreakers. You will never get every last dime out the pockets of infringers. Those people are probably your best advertising anyway.

    Only Apple Can Make The Perfect Stylus It Once Spurned

    Some art departments that are already Apple will definitely buy it, because it's a great product, and they really aren't concerned about price. Some people will buy just because it's Apple, therefore, better. I'm sure some people will buy it on it's actual, realistic, merits, because it's as...
