    Battlefield 2042

    It‘s called promotion. It’s also a tease to get people talking. Seems like it worked.

    Microsoft broke Windows 11 injecting ads

    Ads have been a part of Microsoft programs for a few years. I get ads for Office365 in my standalone Office. Annoying, but on a scale of 1-10, a 2.

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    I have a 10980XE on an ASUS ROG Strix X-299-E Gaming II mobo and a watercooled EVGA 2080 GPU. I have the CPU cooled by a Corsair 110i cooler and cooling is not an issue. I can't even get the CPU to throttle with any of the AIDA64 stress test or even PRIME. I have the system set to use ASUS own...

    How much RAM you got?

    128 Gb on my desktop machine and 40 AFB on my laptop (32Gb + 8 Gb fixed to the mobo)

    i9-10900X or i9-9900K

    I have done exactly that, moving to a 2 TB NVME drive (Intel 660P) from a 1 TB SSD. I also installed a i9 10940X whis is OK but not a great overclocker.

    Intel Core i9 Cascade Lake-X thread

    The ASUS TUF X299 Mark 2 had a new bios released last weekend (2002) which "Add support for Intel® Core™ X-Series 10000 Processor Family" . It also does not kill the Kaby Lake-X 7740X processer either. I have both with the new bios. Everything is just fine...

    Report Claims Canadian Police are Tracking and Acting On "Negative" Behavior

    Good grief. While discussion of the hub model is useful and necessary, it may or may not be the threat to democracy and individual liberty the article paints it to be (dig deeper and you will fine a better informed Vice article). This is not a new concept and Canada is no pioneer. It was started...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    Samsung Quits Blu-ray Player Market

    When streaming by internet is just not available in many parts of the non-urban world, the DVD makes a lot of sense. When download speeds are under 10 Mb, physical media make a lot of sense.

    Only Plebs Use Office 2019 over Office 365, Says Microsoft's Weird New Ad Campaign

    Um... no. I have a problem with paying in perpetuity. So does my accountant at tax time. Yes, I will buy Office 2019 simply because the rest of the world insists on a poor product. Me? You will pry WordPerfect from my cold, dead hands following my keyboard failure.

    Tesla Model 3 Owners Vent about Polar Vortex Affecting Cars

    You aren't familiar with a battery blanket? It's like an electric heating pad or electric blanket for your battery. Very popular in Canada in extreme cold. You plug it it along with a block heater and your ICE is guaranteed to start every single time.

    Tesla Model 3 Owners Vent about Polar Vortex Affecting Cars

    Young? I think you mean dumb. Dumb as a sack of hammers. At least their design engineers appear to be. The Smithers Winter Test Center is just one location where winter testing is conducted. There are others. SWTC is located on an old Nike Hercules missile base on the UP of Michigan...

    RGB LED SSDs are Good for Gaming

    Sell the sizzle, not the steak. Kind of like telling me that the non-functional hood and fender scoops on my truck will make it go faster. Just another proof of "There's a sucker born every minute"

    Microsoft Wants to Know How It Can Improve Windows 10 PC Gaming

    Privacy is not a fundamental right. Security of person and the protection against unreasonable search and seizure are. Microsoft can ask for information and you can tell them to go piss up a rope, too.

    Future Windows 10 Builds Will Reserve Storage and Tabulate It

    Yes, it's in the latest Fast Ring build (18312). What this does a lot of is replace many of the functions of CCleaner without the granularity. I keep Storage Sense turned off, too.

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    Not in this jurisdiction. Municipalities can set standards such as minimum number of handicapped spaces and fire routes but otherwise, little else. The police won't even come for a parking lot collision. Private property.

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    Such hate for truck owners. For the record, I own a truck and I would never give an electric vehicle room in my driveway. You will have to pry the steering wheel of my truck from my cold, dead hands.

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    How can there be? Parking for chargers on private property are governed by rules and regulations of the owner of the parking lot. The property owner can tag and tow a vehicle blocking a charger on their property and make is quite pricey to do so, what with tow charges, storage charges, release...

    EA Stock Plummets by $21 Billion as Battlefield V Sales Disappoint

    I have been in since the Alpha of BFV. I wasn't that happy about it, but I did bite the bullet and buy it. When I started playing I just kept getting killed right after spawning and by people in cover you could not spot. I learn now that the spotting model changed and the TTK was futzed. I may...

    Vitaminwater Offers $100K to Quit Smartphones for a Year

    Can't do it in Canada. CDMA is no longer supported in Canada, which is what 1990's era phones used.
