    Oculus Quest 2

    So glad I just read this thread. Ordered 2, one for my older son who's been eyeing one for awhile and one for my youngest's birthday coming up in August. Saved me $200 and if this was reddit and I felt like wasting money on fake currency, I'd give you a gold award for the heads up. Buy em up...

    Nissan source code leaked online after Git repo misconfiguration

    Our Armada has been awesome granted it's still made in Japan and has an actual 7-speed transmission and not the CVT. All of their problems are the models with the CVTs in them.

    NES ($50) and SNES ($70) Classic, refurbished direct from Nintendo

    I have a PS One Classic bleemsync'd, SNES Classic, a Retropie Box, an original SNES system, an original NES, an original Sega Master System and Genesis with CD, and of course an emulator on my computer that does all of these. Guess which one I use for the vast majority of my classic gaming? yep

    Fry's Electronics: 20% Off In-Store on Saturdays

    The Fry's in Irving TX has been a ghost town the last few times I went by there as well. Empty shelves, cafe closed, and it seemed it was being run on a skeleton staff. The parking lot was empty too. It's really sad because Fry's was never the cheapest, but they had everything and I mean...

    Disney Reveals Price, Release Date, and Content Plans for Disney+ Streaming Service

    Wonder if they're going to make available, all of their older stuff. I'm talking the old Herbie moves, Apple Dumpling Gang, Computer that Wore His Tennis Shoes, etc.

    YouTube TV prices will raise to $50

    So I can have better streaming channels for $50/month only to blow through my home internet datacap and pay extra on the data consumption. Got it!

    LG Embarrasses with OLED Burn-In at SID Tradeshow

    You can pry my Pioneer Kuro 60" plasma from my cold, dead hands. Or, if it decides to crap the bed beforehand :D.

    Net Neutrality Is Really, Officially Dead on Monday

    What an oxymoron. What you're implying is the government provides the freedom.

    LG 55" OLED TV $999 (Refurb) on Woot

    Here ya go. Only $88 more and I can actually vouch for the seller as I bought a plasma a few years back from them and had it shipped to Oklahoma from NY.

    Google Pixel 2 XL Launch Event - Live Stream Press Conference

    Grrrrrr, no headphone jack. What is up with this sudden rush to get rid of it? I know they give you a free dongle, but you can't be expected to carry that everywhere you go. BT headphones suck so the only good way to get good sound is with regular cans.

    Why so excited for the iPhone X ? It's the same old thing running boring iOS

    Come on guys, WP is where it's at. :D. Seriously though, MS had a good thing going with WP 7 and then 8 but managed like they always do, to screw it up.

    Chrome Crushing It In The Browser Wars While Edge Continues To Sputter

    Hey, at least Edge finally (mine got updated today) got the swipe gestures back from the 8.1 days which are so intuitive for webpage navigation. Say what you want, but on a tablet, that's something that MS really has on everybody else.

    Apple Unveils New MacBook Pro With OLED 'Touch Bar'

    Google Pixel Scratch, Bend, Burn Test

    Have a Galaxy Note 4 that's been naked since new a year and a half ago. As to be expected, there are a few scratches that are not perceivable when the screen is on, but they are there and easily viewable when off. I hate the bulk and or stickiness a case adds and by stickiness, I mean not...

    Ghostbusters Official Trailer

    Horrible, horrible, horrible. Can't stand McCarthy as I don't think she's funny, and I'm tired of Hollywood trying to ruin fond childhood memories for me.

    Plan ended WTH happened to contracts?

    Your absolute best bet in terms of cash outlay, is to find a generation old or so new phone on Ebay and go to a pre-paid service that uses whatever towers are most prevalent in your area. For instance, I'm seeing brand new Nokia 1520's (6" monster flagship released a little over a year ago)...

    Microsoft Lumia 950 & 950 XL

    Long time WP user here and I can attest that these are wonderful devices. Started with a HTC Trophy on Verizon, then a 920 on ATT and currently a 1520 on ATT. All have been bulletproof, and I still get strange looks when I whip it out in public and people don't recognize the OS. I've had...

    Is Sony Declaring Defeat On Handheld?

    Still play my first generation Atari Lynx from back in the day. Blue Lightning, Paperboy, California Games FTW. Gaming on a phone is a terrible experience IMO. I've got a Lumia 1520 (6" screen) so while that's nice, no feedback, buttons, or thumbpad just plain sucks unless you're just...

    PSA: Intel Pentium G3258 + Windows 10 = fail for most users. No official Fix yet....

    Just so I'm clear before I try and upgrade myself, you've got the G3258 with a MSI PCMate z97 board correct? That's my exact setup so I just want to be sure I'll still have overclocking abilities on both cores with this board. TIA

    AT&T Rejects $100M Fine From FCC

    No matter your feelings on AT&T, any time a corporation tells the government to effectively f-off, you gotta love it and root for the person or company doing it. The FCC is just another reason why our government is so jacked up.

    Why I’m Dumping Google Chrome

    Trying it now thanks to you. So far, I like it. Funny how I remember the tabs being below the bookmarks bar earlier in FF's life but they switched a few years ago to being on the very top just like Chrome.

    Zuckerberg Addresses 'Real Name' Problem

    I don't know why anyone has a FB account as it is. Zuckerturd has proven himself to be an anti-privacy guy and is for a truly "open" digital world in which there is no expectation of privacy. We are watching a bunch of mindless narcissists post stuff that no one other than perhaps their own...

    Apple Recalls Beats Pill XL Speakers Due To Fire Hazard

    Come on Steve, what do you expect out of us by posting something like this? You should know by now that none of us here on [H] are stupid enough to pay for overpriced, over hyped, Apple, and Beats crap. :D

    Netflix Starts Testing Pre-Roll Ads

    As others have stated, a preview of one of their own shows is one thing, but actual commercials for products outside their scope will have me cancelling immediately. That and the very first time I see a "Orange is the New Black" preview on a kid's show and don't think they wouldn't do it either.

    Google Is Terrible At Selling Smartphones

    The masses are what drive mobile phone sales. Niche devices for the geeks out there, will never sell as well as a device you can walk into any store and buy. Doesn't matter if it's better or not, it just won't sell against mass marketed devices like the Galaxy and iPhones of the world...

    Best Buy CEO: Tablet Sales Are Crashing, Hope for PCs

    QFT. Nothing but good experiences returning items and getting price matches to Amazon at my local BB's. It really must be region dependent I guess. Amazon is starting to piss me off with the rising costs of shipping things overnight (used to be $3.99 regardless of size), higher prices...

    Microsoft Invents A Splittable Game Controller For Surface Tablets

    Back when I had an original Droid, I bought a "game gripper" that was just a simple overlay of the keyboard with NES style controls. Simple concept, but when paired with all my emulators, it was genius.

    Opera 21 Launches For Windows and Mac

    Weird. Tried to update using check for updates and it doesn't take you to 21. You have to download from Opera's site directly. It is faster it seems. Wish I could find a dark theme for the bookmarks bar and address bar though.
