    VRoamer Generates On-The-Fly VR Experiences While Walking Through Buildings

    Today, malls are dying because of the ease of internet purchasing... In the future, a mall will become a huge virtual environment where thousands of people will be walking around wearing headsets and not a one will be interacting IRL. It's actually kind of scary to think about.

    Digital Foundry Analyzes Google's Stadia Platform

    This is such a huge win... AMD will get loads of cash selling Google hardware. Google will then have an army of programmers improving the AMD open source drivers... Then... The entire enterprise will fail due to internet latency and bandwidth limits... But AMD and we the consumers will get a...

    Intel Comet Lake Processors Could Pack 10 Cores

    This is an acknowledgement by Intel that AMD is about to release a new CPU product line that will push Intel even further behind. Intel is trying to make people hold off buying the new AMD parts by promising something wonderful in the unspecified and probably distant future. Simply put, I read...

    Windows 10 Will Uninstall Incompatible Updates

    This sounds like a great feature... For all of you who were updated to Win10 from Win7... You will now have all of the broken parts of win10 removed... I think that means you will be rolled back to a working windows 7 machine. Congratulations.

    Alphabet Launches Chrome Extension That Filters Comments With AI

    What would be useful is having a plugin that blocks all 1st, 2nd & 3rd party tracking. Oh wait... That would break google's business model.

    Ubisoft Will Prevent Third-Party Digital Stores from Selling "The Division 2" after Release

    First off... I haven't played most of these games butt... They all look the same to me. Some guy running around in camouflage shooting an automatic rifle in a post apocalyptic world. What's the difference? What compels someone to buy a new game when it is only marginally different from the...

    PSU Connector Rant

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    Never have I read a comment so devoid of thought. Your entire premise is based on the assumption the "War on Drugs" failed. Simply put if you had spent any time at all thinking you would have realized there never was a war on drugs. Yes, there was a federal and state policy stating that we...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    This is one instance where I think we should adopt the Chinese mode. Death penalty for all drug offenses. They learned a hard lesson long ago. China was once a first world country and drugs were legal. Then the excessive drug use in the country effectively destroyed the country...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    I've noticed some debate about moderating the comment section. The real bad guy is google. Google obviously has a method of discovering inappropriate comments therefore they should simply block the comment before it is ever posted. Now since google can find and block the comment at any point...

    Intel Gen11 Reportedly Takes iGPU Performance to Another Level

    I looked at the article and it is very misleading. The new 940 performs 213% times faster than the old 620. Their math... 620 => 1621, 940 => 3453. 3543/1621 = 2.13 Then they subtract off 1 for the old 620 and get the misleading 113%. The thing is more than twice as fast as the older version.

    Google Forgets to Tell Consumers That Its Nest Security System Has a Built-in Mic

    In all my years... I have found that if the package doesn't EXPLICITLY say that the feature / functionality is included then IT IS NOT included. Having a microphone included and NOT listed is clearly intentional. To get right to the point. This is nothing less than a hidden listening device...

    Microsoft Begs You to Stop Using Internet Explorer

    Microsoft... I'll make you a deal. I'll listen to what you want and stop using IE. Now, you listen to me and give me back windows 7! I think that is a fair trade. P.S. Win 10 would be ok too if you strip out all of the spy ware and put back in a proper desktop.

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    I can tell from your comment that you are both intelligent and young. Your comment makes prefect sense unfortunately, no taxes go away. So, if they added a tire tax then you would be paying a fuel tax, an EV tax and a tire tax.

    Asus GPU Tweak II Overlay Injects Ads Into Games

    I am wondering, is it possible that this "Ad" can be interpreted by some game companies as cheating? Content is being injected into the game and that sounds like something that game companies would frown upon because of the cheating potential???
