    BitDefender Researchers Discover "Terrifying" Security Vulnerability in Intel CPUs

    That's exactly why an adblocker should be standard for every web browser. I wouldn't browse the Internet without an adblocker these days.

    BitDefender Researchers Discover "Terrifying" Security Vulnerability in Intel CPUs

    Oh this is good... as much as I hate referencing The Verge, Intel is currently facing 32 lawsuits regarding Spectre and Meltdown and that was back at the beginning of 2018. (Source) How much do you want to bet that the number of lawsuits is much larger now? Yeah...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    Microsoft continues to back off of UWP programs, Win32 re-"elevated to full status"

    Which bothers this living shit out of me!!! TV is landscape, video should be landscape. Get with the program people! I'm happy to see UWP dying, I just hope that .NET doesn't go with it. .NET is a pretty useful framework.

    Remastering "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" with Machine Learning

    Oh yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' about! That's a significant visual upgrade! The first video I was like... meh. This one, I genuinely had a "Holy crap, this looks good!" moment.

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    And yet Google and their GMail product does it all the time and nobody bats an eye. But again... Google good, Microsoft EEEEEEEVIL. And besides, I've looked at the data through the data viewer app and that kind of data isn't being sent at all. OK sure, an inventory of software that's installed...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    Have you actually looked at the data in the Diagnostic Data View app that Microsoft themselves provide? I have, I have looked at the data it collects and sends to Microsoft and I see absolutely nothing in it that is nefarious, bad, evil, or whatever other kind of scary sounding word you can come...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    Turn it to Basic Mode and it's fine, even the European Union and its GDPR (which is one of the strongest privacy laws on the books anywhere in the world) say it's fine. If the EU and the GDPR says it fine, who am I to argue?

    Microsoft continues to back off of UWP programs, Win32 re-"elevated to full status"

    Win32 is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good in the sense that you can do a lot of things as a developer and make your program do great things but Win32 can also be used to do A LOT of bad things. Your average user here may disagree with the idea that there should be restrictions in place...

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    Nothing. A lot of the Internet likes to hate Microsoft just because it's cool to hate Microsoft. Even if the Son of God Himself came down from on high and blessed Edge people would still hate it because it's Microsoft.

    PC Sales to Decline in 2019 Amid CPU Shortages, Weak GPU Market

    Blame Intel for that happening. If they didn't sit on their asses and actually innovated there would be a reason to upgrade. Oh but no, Intel was shoveling the same four core-eight thread warmed over garbage for the last five years. Like really, what are we on now? 14nm++++++ (give or take a...

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    The point I'm making is that because Chromium is open source we don't have to worry about things like back in the old Internet Explorer days. Again, if you don't like the way things are going then fork Chromium and go your own way and change it to fit your project's needs. Look at Vivaldi as an...

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    The part I don't get about all of the hate about the Internet going all Chrome is that Chrome is based upon Chromium which is OPEN SOURCE!!! Now I'd understand all of hate if it were like it was back in the dark old days of Internet Explorer, the big (even HUGE) difference between then and now...

    Marvel Uploads a New Avengers: Endgame Trailer

    Exactly. I watch a movie to be entertained, that's all I ask of the movie. Apparently they didn't understand that Captain Marvel was meant to be a massively overpowered character. Look in the original comics, she was created to be OP.

    Win Some, Lose Some in Qualcomm vs Apple Saga

    What I seriously do not get is how the hell did Qualcomm get so damn powerful to control what is essentially the standard upon which pretty much every damn phone in the world works with? If anything, Qualcomm is a company that needs to be broken up and torn to shreds because to hold what is an...

    Marvel Uploads a New Avengers: Endgame Trailer

    I see these movies as a way to escape the humdrum of life. I don't pick them apart, I don't go into the movie expecting certain things and when it doesn't happen I hate on the movie. No, I go to the movie to be entertained. Case in point, Captain Marvel. It wasn't the best Marvel movie but it...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I wouldn't say that I love the show, it's an OK show; I'll watch it. It's not at all the complete dumpster fire that so many people here think it is. And yes, I'm an original Star Trek fan. I've seen all of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. If you ask me my favorite...

    Oh bullshit. Brie Larson said that only to get people's blood pressure up and the whole lot of you fell for it. Meanwhile she's laughing at all of you, probably gasping for breath at the same time. The day I get some time to see this movie I'm going to see it. I don't give a flying fuck what...

    I installed this update for Windows 10 (17763.348) and I see no issues, then again RETPoline (or whatever it's called) isn't enabled on my system with my 8700K. I have no idea why though.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I wouldn't say that Star Trek Discovery Season 2 is good, however when you compare it to Season 1 you'll find that it's not quite so bad. Season 1 was a complete dumpster fire. Season 2? Not so much. I'm not saying that Season 2 doesn't have any issues, no sir.

    Linus Torvalds Comments On Apple's Potential Move to ARM

    Apple makes some great products but at the same time they've made some real boneheaded mistakes. Microsoft has made some great products but like Apple, they too have made some real boneheaded mistakes. We can say this about every company in existence; GM, Ford, nVidia, AMD, Intel, Toyota...

    Linus Torvalds Comments On Apple's Potential Move to ARM

    Exactly. Android would be great if only the likes of Samsung (and the other OEMs) couldn't shit all over the damn thing by adding custom overlays to it. For instance, Samsung TouchWiz needs to die in a fire. I could understand that the custom overlays were necessary back in the early days of...

    Linus Torvalds Comments On Apple's Potential Move to ARM

    As did I and I was wrong. The problem that many of us here at [H]ardOCP have is that we look at products from more of a geek's point of view. This goes for both Microsoft and Apple products but mostly Apple products; Microsoft products tend to fail because of their own stupidity and not because...
