    Just How Brave are You?

    It's difficult to sniff traffic going through Tor unless you control an exit node. The only data your ISP will be able to collect is you connecting to random entrance node IP's. They'll have no clue about what websites you visit or which IP services you use.

    Just How Brave are You?

    If you're so inclined you can do this with a router using Tor. Easiest way to get it set up is to use Pfsense, torify the connection then set up a cron to cycle the nodes every hour. It will significantly reduce the speed you get from your WAN but it's a good airbag to use in addition to other...

    The Small Things in Life...Android Msg Gets "Mark as Read" on Notifications

    I've had this for months on the official android messenger, I honestly didn't even notice it as a new feature. It was just there one day and I was like, "eh." I guess that was something added in the O beta that just doesn't matter to me.

    Amazon's New Refunds Policy Will Crush Small Businesses, Outraged Sellers Say

    This is awesome news. Totally warranted because of the horrible QA going on with 3rd party retailers on Amazon. In the past 6 months more than half of the items I've ordered through 3rd parties on Amazon have shipped me the wrong item, and because of the return policy I have to take time out...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Unboxing and Install

    Watch a Speedrunner Set the Record for Portal Using No Portal

    He used a portal at 6:36 to get something to fall from a high wall. Run does not count.

    Battle for the Future of the Internet

    The reason net neutrality is threatened is because we haven't classified internet service as a commodity and/or public service like water and electricity. This needs to happen because it is becoming increasingly difficult to live without internet access. Many people's jobs depend on it...

    Study Finds Gamers Have Lower Sex Drive, but Last Longer in Bed

    Did you exercise daily and how much did you exercise each week? I'm in my mid thirties now and feeling the reverse effects as I was extremely active and muscular in my twenties. I don't have as much time as I did then to exercise and I'm wondering how difficult the road will be ahead. I'm at...

    Oregon Man Temporarily Wins the Right to Call Himself an "Engineer"

    I've worked on multi-million dollar critical projects and saved the company I worked for millions with my work. I am an engineer, the formal engineers I work with refer to me as an engineer. I put engineer on my resume and wouldn't hesitate to do so in written testimony. You can fuck yourself...

    Oregon Man Temporarily Wins the Right to Call Himself an "Engineer"

    It's the trend I'm seeing in the industry, schools are spitting out more and more inept "engineers." Don't assume things will remain unchanged just because you wish it to be true.

    Oregon Man Temporarily Wins the Right to Call Himself an "Engineer"

    I don't know if it's intentional but you really come off as stuck up and snobbish in this thread. You seem to hold the opinion that formal education and certifications are your god and anyone without them shouldn't be doing any work whatsoever. I call myself an engineer without any formal...

    Dolphins Have Figured out How to Use Tablets

    My cats use tablets the same way as this dolphin does, and they were just as quick to figure it out. A very lackluster demonstration of dolphin "intelligence."

    The Complete, Untold History of Halo

    The 5.1 surround in Halo 1 was pretty great, That's all I can remember liking about it. I remember being pissed that I couldn't play co-op multiplayer over lan and the fact that the campaign was only half finished, with the latter half of the game being 100% backtracking. I also remember being...

    Google Pixel XL Phones Blacklisted as Stolen

    I have a theory about why this happened. Project Fi has deals with Sprint and T-Mobile to use their networks. The Fi Android OS periodically checks signal strength of both T-Mobile and Sprint and connects to whichever one is stronger. Now if I have Project Fi and I take the sim out, reset the...

    Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Reports Strong Results for Fiscal Year 2017

    You never need to use micro-transactions in GTA 5, like those shark cards to give you in game money. Worthless, all you need to do is tool around doing random missions online for about an hour and inevitably some hacker will log into your session and give you millions. A couple nights ago...

    PREY with Denuvo Cracked in 10 Days

    You can't use Steam refund to demo a game. After multiple refunds they warn you that anymore may not be honored. The refunds are there to save you from a mistake of buying a shit game (i.e. No Man's Sky). Piracy is still the best and proper way to demo a game.

    Hackers Hold Disney’s Latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" for Ransom

    I didn't even know about the new movie until I heard about this ransom. So it worked, I'll watch it in the theater. I love all things piracy(including these movies), the ransomers should be drawn and quartered for this. If you've got some juicy bits, spread that shit.

    Lawsuit: UploadVR Had "Kink Room," Pressured Female Employees to "Microdose"

    When I first read the title I thought they had a kink room in their VR application and was confused, thinking "microdosing" was some new VR slang. I still have no clue what a microdose is.

    Uber Faces Federal Criminal Probe over Transportation Regulation Evading Software

    Only thing I think that could be potentially damning about the software is how it probes user data, though if it uses OSINT there's nothing illegal about it. I think Portland is just pissed because they're having trouble keeping Uber out of their shit hole town. I never hear a good story about...

    $1B Overwatch Revenue drives Activision-Blizzard to Record Q1 2017 Results

    I played the original team fortress and tf2 and don't really get the comparison to overwatch, maybe from a very basic view of "it's an fps with healers and turrets" but that is a very, very vague comparison. The IP is completely original. OW started as a new mmo called Titan and they scrapped...

    Ranger is Back in QUAKE Champions

    I played the CBT a few weekends ago. Not impressed in the slightest. The game is a huge cash grab with micro transactions coming out the ears and Bethesda have given themselves an impossible task balancing between the champion skills, health, armor, speed, weapons, and the nightmare that is...

    Netflix Gives Controversial "13 Reasons Why" Series More Viewer Warnings

    I'd rather them give a warning more akin to "Danger, this Netflix original series has atrocious acting and completely unlikable characters, horrible writing and we're ashamed we even let it be filmed."

    Twitch Streamer Gets Swatted off a Plane

    You're confusing terms here. "Doxxing" is simply posting information about someone on the internet. Doesn't matter if they are 2 months old or have super top secret government clearance, it is not illegal to say anyone's name online. You can even post their social security numbers if you have...

    Twitch Streamer Gets Swatted off a Plane

    "Doxxing" isn't a crime in the US. It's your responsibility to control your online footprint. Whatever you put out there has already been found. That's the way of the world. Government is not there to protect people from their own naivety.

    Your 4K TV Is Probably the Only 4K Converter You Need

    The new LG OLED is incredible, it's actually too good in some cases. It's hard to watch some of my favorite old movies on it because of how it destroys the illusion when you can see the fake movie sets. The upscaling is great.

    This Is What Xbox Games Look like on Project Scorpio on 4K and 1080p Displays

    You might be forgetting that the PS4 Pro, PS4, Xbone and scorpio can't render nearly all games at above 30fps, and in a lot of cases struggle to do even that at 1080p. My current rig can play all the latest games at >30fps, most of them at >60fps and I bargain binned it together from used parts...

    GIGABYTE AORUS AX370-Gaming 5 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Excellent report from the first wave of the AM4 platform. I especially liked how the conclusion had both Dan's and Kyle's opinions thus far. What I got from this was what I was planning on doing, wait for Vega release to build an AM4 PC. Hopefully by then we'll have the 2nd wave of AM4...

    Disney Will Never Alter or Restore Original Star Wars Trilogy

    Why are you guys asking for anything? We already have the despecialized versions in HD and they look fucking great on our OLED screen. What I want Disney to do with Star Wars is dick all. I don't care about it anymore. I got what I wanted.
