    What site for reviews?

    Hey guys, Now that Hard[OCP] is done, can someone recommend a good tech review site? I used to trust HardOCP for my equipment choices and usually based decisions on their recommendations but now I'm not sure where to go. I don't upgrade often, so I need a good go-to place instead of reading 10...

    Samsung Unveils a Folding Smartphone

    There's potential, certainly. I'd get it in a few gens when the front screen fills most of the estate, the phne is thinner and a different aspect ratio, notches are gone and...well, those are actually my main issues right now.

    Samsung Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy Buds Commercial Leaks

    Curious about the buds, how they'll differ from the IconX 2018 which are quite decent. I hate the punchole and any other notches on phones, I hope they don't put that thing on the Note 10 (they probably will) and find a way to get rid of that junk. I'd rather have a top bezel or a slide-out...

    The Witcher TV Show Casts Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold

    k, while my initial reaction is negative, isn't she quite light? She doesn't really seem your typical black, she's just not very fair-skinned. Kinda like a tanned white person. I'll have to see the final character.

    Science Confirms That Bluetooth Headphones Are "Mostly Terrible"

    meh, yeah, if you're super-hardcore then of course, but I'm using Sony MDRs (1st gen) and the quality is very good for me, while the advantages outweigh any minor losses in quality. Pretty much no connection losses, other than sometimes in very busy areas. If I'm at my desk or watching TV, I get...

    Oculus Co-Founder Leaves Facebook Amid Rift 2 Cancellation Reports

    To be fair, card board was a nice avenue for trying the VR before making any more-expensive decisions. I mean obviously it's leagues behind any serious VR experience, but at least for someone who's never tried it, it gives a taste of what the whole thing is about without any serious...

    Google Maps Pulls Cupcake Calorie Counter After Backlash

    In Canada (or, at least, Ontario) restaurants with more than 20 locations are now required to print calories beside the meals. I'm now surprised that this passed and wasn't challenged as offensive...or was it... :D

    72% of Consumers Don’t Know What Net Neutrality Is

    PayPal Hates on Hate and Haters that get Paid for Hate and Hating

    Well said, Kyle. Don't give in to these pressures from the left, maintain your integrity. Just cause you have a brain and can actually analyse situations and asses them, does not make you a far-right extremist or any of the epithets attributed to you. I like that [H] is quite objective...

    Blockbuster Has Managed to Survive in Alaska

    it was kinda cool going out to pick up a movie for the evening. obviously digital is more convenient, but there's no barely any option for true HD content though. Online is good but it doesn't match a true Blu-Ray so I kinda miss that option for rental.

    Oculus Rift + Touch Combo is Now $598

    Tried the VIVE yesterday. It was really cool, but the resolution kinda sucked and the screen-door effect was very obvious. I'm also wondering how quickly games and demos would get boring without good AAA titles after the initial `wow` factor would wear off. It might be a lot of fun to play next...

    YouTube, Disney Ditch PewDiePie over Anti-Semitic Comments

    This. I totally agree with this, the left has just gone bonkers and I'm glad people are catching on, because there's hope to turn this around. The PC idiocy has crossed the line a long time ago.

    Factory Replaces 90% of Human Workers with Robots, Production Rises by 250%

    I dunno, something tells me that this robot revolution will not be as grim as some say, society will re-adjust and jobs will crop up in other sectors. Someone has to now make the machines, right? Or support them, design them etc., sh** ALWAYS breaks. Think back to the dude who lit lamp posts...
