    New Aircraft Seats Will Make Flights Slightly More Bearable

    This is all fine and dandy, but the moment self driving cars arrived the airlines are FUCKED. Everyone will get in the car at 9pm and arrive at 8am at their vacation. And you know what, good. Overpriced, poor service, need to show up 2 hours early, nothing is free, RIDICULOUSLY uncomfortable...

    German Scientists Invent Working Teleporter, of Sorts

    those final 3 "personal" sculptures that were replicated were a mangled mess. The foot looked like it went through a paper shredder. I would be impressed if this was a students project but that's about where my admiration of this product would end.. Maybe in a few revisions lol

    Samsung Has Announced Plans to Scrap Plasma TVs

    There's no way LED can compare with plasma.... a $1000 plasma looks better than a $4000 LED If you look at a $1000 LED and compare it to a $1000 plasma, it isn't even a contest.

    How Apple Users React To Every Apple Announcement

    As a person who is directly responsible for many millions of dollars e-commerce, I am quite interested in each individual browsers performance and to call Safari mud slow really is not an informed statement. In terms of getting work done, I can get more done with the terminal program on a mac...

    How Apple Users React To Every Apple Announcement

    In all honesty, apple products are extremely polished, and OS X is leaps and bounds far superior to windows in practically every aspect other than gaming. Windows has become a completely unusable clusterf*** since windows 8, and Apple understands the concept of merging multiple devices into...

    Cineplex Charging $3 Extra For The Good Seats

    And this is why i wait for movies to hit streaming/bluray rental. If I stop going to theatres, I no longer "need" to see movies on release day. It's "new to me" effectively, albeit 5-6 months later. ...and I pay $5 plus one or two $1 bags of microwave popcorn, as opposed to $4x15 in tickets...

    Hoping someone from Texas can answer a question for me...

    I am a Canadian who might be moving down to Texas since my better half might have a new position there. Question: How is the internet, specifically in the Houston area? Furthermore, how is the gaming scene down there, any big LAN's etc? Thanks in advance. Bonus question: do you find the...

    The Paper Printer Will Be Dead in Four Years, says IEEE

    As a business owner, all I have to say is: ya, right. It is no equivalent to the simplicity of marking up a piece of paper in a board room with colleagues. Ipad and sharpie don't exactly mix!

    290X CF setup not working - please help (X58 users?)

    Just FYI, the cards are exhibiting "coil whine" - one much worse than the other. I swapped to a MSI Z87-G45, 4770k and Corsair AX1200 and it made no difference. So clearly, mobo, processor and power supply make no difference to the whine. So that's the latest "what now" development lol... I...

    AMD surprise @Jimmy Fallon tonight 12/13/2013

    Probably a drop in the bucket when you consider the audience it hit and the millions of people that saw it, followed by the viral spread of news afterwards (I didn't see the show, and yet here I am writing about it right?) 395 x $3000 = $1.2 mil, not that much when it comes to marketing to...

    Hey Rizen, I noticed the 13.11 beta 9.2 drivers actually rectified the stuttering for me in League of Legends and Hitman Might want to try them out. Still a royal shitpile of a mess though... How AMD ever thought this would pass muster I just don't know. As far as I'm concerned, these...

    If anyone has a X79 mobo or X58 mobo and a 290x crossfire setup, if you could do the following for me, it would be GREATLY appreciated: 1. Turn on crossfire and use ATI 13.11 v9.5 beta drivers. 2. Load up hitman: absolution and turn on vsync. 3. See if the audio crackles and/or the game...

    I tried onboard, it still does it. I tried a sound-blaster x-fi, still does it. The x79 system had onboard sound.

    290x & V-sync = STUTTERING galore!!

    Using CCC to force vsync actually does nothing, vsync is still off. Using radeon pro and forcing vsync, it still stutters exactly the same. Literally no difference.

    290x & V-sync = STUTTERING galore!!

    X79 with 4.1ghz does it too though. That's pretty much cutting edge... So it's not just x58.

    I suggest you look at this thread: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1796311 My friend put together a X79 system with two 290x's and it has the EXACT same audio crackling and SUPER LOW fps with vsync enabled. Looks like AMD really missed the mark on this one.

    Ya that's me, x58 and 290x crossfire IS NOT compatible. I'm going to replace it with a 4820 / x79 system tomorrow methinks... this stuttering bullshit is a joke for such an expensive pair of graphics cards.
