    Apple India factory of on probation for wanting better food and better conditions

    Should I start saying that this isn't an Apple unique issue before other people do? That other companies use Foxconn to make their products? That other manufacturers are just as evil. No need for suicide nets this time. Apple makes so much money partly because they'll do anything to keep...

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    If you’re grandfathered into the original $5 a month “Founders” tier or pay $100 a year for “Priority” access, then you aren't getting 60 fps. We somehow missed the part where Nvidia raised the monthly fee to $10 per month earlier this year. Even still, Nvidia now offers $200-a-year tier that...

    Playstation 5 hacked... twice

    All PS5 root keys have been extracted. I know that piracy potential is the first thing that comes to mind but if I were Sony I'd be worried that someone ports Linux and you can mine crypto on it.

    DRM has ruined Resident Evil Village on PC

    Resident Evil 8 has performance issues on PC and up until recently nobody knew why. Now we know why and it's because of DRM in the game. Specifically Denuvo since a crack team had it removed and now the game is fantastically better. A reminder that pirates have a better experience than those...

    US PC shipments soar 73% in the first quarter as Apple falls from top spot

    HP took top spot in PC sales with 11 million units sold in total and an annual growth up an astonishing 122.6%. I wonder if that's the reason Apple decided to limit their new macOS Monterey Features from Intel Macs? "Other companies boasting big growth numbers include Samsung at 116% and...

    Early Tests Show Xbox Series X Is Loading Games Faster Than PS5

    Surprised nobody posted this but so far the Xbox Series X is loading faster than the PS5, but these are all games on the PS4 and Xbox One. So these games aren't using any “next gen optimization”. Still interesting to see that the raw performance of the SSDs aren't that different...

    A trend I've been noticing in games is that they look great. Graphics have never looked better. Almost every game now comes with HDR and realistic physics. Though one other trend I noticed is that games are now shorter. If they aren't short then they suck. What I'm saying is that game...
