I used to use Iperius until I realized that they don't delete files in the backup that no longer exist so when I restored the files I got back a bunch of crap I didn't want that was long since deleted because it had just...

    Anthem Alpha Streamer Loses Entire EA Origin Library after Breaking NDA

    This may be EA's right, I understand how NDA's work but this is why I prefer DRM free stores. If GOG or pulled this with me it would be useless as I have backup copies of all my games.

    Linux 4.20 Performance Decimated by Spectre and Meltdown Mitigations

    I can't decide what issue to blame here. Should I go with maybe they were too 420 friendly while working on 4.20, or I could mention how the new COC is to blame ir should I just blame Intel ? So many options.

    Amazon Is Kicking All Unauthorized Apple Refurbishers off Amazon Marketplace

    Whether or not you wish to use third party repairs doesn't mean that others should have their options taken from them. Why should I not be able to have a third party repair a phone just because you're ok bending over for Apple ?

    Samsung Is Bringing the Linux Environment to Smartphones

    While I am glad Samsung is at least trying I don't see this working out in it's current phone.

    Game Developer Revokes Game License over Bad Review but Later Apologizes

    This is one reason why DRM free is important to me. A store shouldn't even be allowed to revoke anything of mine.

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    Fuck MSI and Nvidia. You shouldn't be bound by an NDA you didn't sign. Having the guts to do things your way in spite of pressure is why I donate via Patreon to [H] and why I trust them. That aside this looks like a great upper mid range card.

    Librem Key by Purism

    Has anybody given this a shot or heard about it ? A USB key from purism that stores secure keys and can be used to encrypt and decrypt. Also can detect if your BIOS or kernel has been tampered with. Doesn't seem too costly at $59.99 USD. Thoughts ?

    Best email provider for privacy

    I use Proton Mail. Client side encryption and open source. Mobile apps for Android and ios. Free gets you 500MB storage. I opted for the pay version because I use a lot of folders and the free version only gets you 3. Had it for 2 years and I love it. I pay about 8 CAD a month for 5GB.

    Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm Deal Extended for Three Years

    Well their options suck. If they fire here there are two issues: 1. They have to put up with a bunch of whining SJW's crying sexism 2. From what was reported they made offers to possible replacements but nobody wanted the job I would say issue 2 is the bigger one. This gives them 3 years to...

    Epic Apologizes for "Embarrassing" Breast Physics in Fortnite

    Bullshit this was an accident. This doesn't just happen. Someone put work in on it. Just be honest, you thought it was a good idea but are caving to the pressure of a bunch of people who didn't like it and probably don't even play your game anyway.
