    Hackers Tricked A Tesla Into Hitting Objects In Its Path

    I see no fundamental difference between this and someone intentionally ramming the Tesla with their car. You can't possibly fault the car for a third party's intentional attempts to sabotage it.:rolleyes:

    GTX 1080 Retail Store Availability Only Founders Edition?

    Oh well, it's not like I'm trying to buy life saving medicine. :P My 970 will do just fine until there's less friction to replace it.

    Who has a 970 under water?

    My GTX 970 is currently cooled using a Corsair H75 and NZXT G10. I have a small case (Corsair Air 240) and it gets toasty inside while gaming. My primary motivation was reducing noise, since my case sits on my desk 3 feet from my head. It was a PITA getting everything installed and running...

    Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge

    This. It's not a huge issue, but having used my wife's 6P (which doesn't require a button press to unlock) for a bit I'm not used to pressing the button and occasionally I'll find myself hovering my thumb over the button wondering why it won't unlock:LOL:

    Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge

    I purcahsed an S7 in-store from t-mobile today to replace my aging Xperia Z1 Compact. I also considered the Nexus 6p, which my wife has. So far I'm underwhelmed with the S7 :( My issues so far: Fingerprint scanner requires button press - as far as I can tell, the fingerprint scanner on the S7...

    The Division Breaks Ubisoft Records

    I didn't play the beta and I am really enjoying the full game. The vast majority of the time I have played has been with friends. The team-play in this game is fantastic. The graphics and immersion are also fantastic so far. It's like serious sam with loot. :D Dark Zone pvp is pretty intense...

    Survey: 60% Of Windows 10 Users Give It A Thumbs Up

    Lack of Windows Media Center prevents me from upgrading my gaming computer or HTPC. If you want to watch protected content through a cablecard setup, there is no viable alternative at the moment. :( I tried to upgrade my laptop from Windows 7 but the update repeatedly failed so I gave up.

    Need some guidance on HTPCs

    When my wife was home recently for our baby I bought an Amazon Fire TV and a small TV for upstairs. I don't know about access to your movie library, but navigation to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO is a breeze on the Fire TV. Even if you didn't already have the subscriptions and needed to...

    Sony Changes Stance On Waterproof Phones: Do Not Use Underwater

    I tested the "waterproofness" of my Z1 compact in a glass of water when I first bought it. The phone failed miserably. Fortunately I was able to return it at the store for a brand new replacement. I really like the idea of a compact, waterproof, full-featured phone with a great camera, but I...

    ARK: Survival Evolved

    I am running at even lower settings until I get a new graphics card, but FWIW I found turning up the textures improved the quality more than anything.

    Solutions for big phones while running?

    If you're willing to spend a little more, the Jaybird Bluebuds X headphones are fantastic. The sound quality is great, the battery lasts for ~8 hours, and they don't fall out when I run, rock climb, or otherwise work out. I've used other IEMs in the past (e.g. Shure e2) but the Bluebuds are a...

    Desktop SMS solutions?

    Mighty Text +1. You just install the app and install the extension in your desktop browser, no complicated setup necessary. I've been using it for a couple of years now and I highly recommend it.

    Sony's latest offering: Xperia Z3

    Mine wasn't. I carefully checked all 3 flaps before testing to make sure there was no debris blocking the seals and then I made sure they were securely closed. Water still managed to get inside and under the camera lens after a 20 second dunk in a glass of water. Despite the obvious water...

    Sony's latest offering: Xperia Z3

    I bought a Z1 compact this weekend and mine was not "waterproof" enough to survive a brief dunk in a glass of water. Other than that issue, I love the phone, and the Sony store I purchased it from swapped it out for a new one.

    Good lord, would you guys just cut the foreplay and do it already:p Back to Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition on console... I've just about finished Act IV on my crusader and I've played a few hours of local multiplayer, so I wanted to share my observations. Local coop is a blast. You're...

    Fire TV + HDHomerun?

    Has anyone used Amazon's Fire TV with the HDHomerun app to watch live TV? The app's a little clunky, but I have no problems using it to watch TV on my Nexus 7. Based on my limited research the Fire TV appears to have a more powerful processor so I would assume it would be at least on par...

    Kalypso Steam Sale - Tropico 5 and others

    I purchased Tropico 5 and I regret it. I haven't been able to make it through the tutorial without the game crashing. I've also experienced glitches where I complete an objective (e.g. "build XX") but the game does not recognize the completion. It's certainly possible the issue is with my...

    New Xbox One features coming soon DLNA+

    I have a HTPC connected to my X1 as well, and I use the HTPC for watching movies and TV (and the occasional game--thanks Steam streaming!). I have an IR receiver connected to the HTPC, but it's not compatible with the X1 so I can't use kinect commands to control the HTPC. I've ordered a receiver...

    I currently am on T-mobile but I used Straight Talk for a couple of years. Their $45 plan is ~$50 with taxes, uses ATT or t-mobile's network ( I was on ATT.) You get 2.5GB of "high speed" 3g/HPSA+ and then it throttles down to EDGE until the next billing cycle. I ended up leaving ST because...

    How much difference of 24 ohm vs. 64 ohm makes on a portable CD player

    You will probably not be able to notice any difference in sound quality from the change in impedance alone. Everything else equal, you may be able to notice a difference in sound volume, particularly with regard to lower (bass) frequencies. I have a pair of DT770 PRO headphones which are 80 ohm...

    Cleaning up some coax runs

    I installed the amp today and so far things are looking much better! I haven't touched any of the settings. Here are my signal levels before: Here are the signal levels after installing the amp: I still need to clean up the wiring, but it's HOT outside so that can wait for another day :)
