    FS: 1TB Samsung 870 QVO (Low Use), 8gb DDR4 sticks, NIB-ish ATI 9600 AIW

    What price do you have on the RX 480 4GB? I see 125 for the 8GB, but no price on 4GB. (Mostly just curious.)

    Rise of Skywalker

    I know this is exceedingly rare for people discussing Star Wars, but I am in complete agreement. I hadn't seen the prequels since they originally came out, but I recently showed them to my kids, and found them even worse than I'd remembered. Of all the many things to be unhappy with, I'd say the...

    Disney Completes Fox Acquisition

    That's terrifying. It is clear now Skynet will be built inside Epcot. Wait, did Disney buy James Cameron, too? If so, 2021 release for series reboot, Terminator: Mouse Trap.

    JPMorgan Chase Uses AI Powered Video Game as a Recruitment Tool

    I've heard of this somewhere before... Also, I imagine an intern with a high Altruism score would be rapidly shown the door.

    Pop Music Now Sucks According to Science

    It's not just you. The "Bro-Country" invasion and movement towards mainstream pop makes it difficult to determine which genre of radio station you're listening to anymore, much less tell any of the "artists" apart. I went about a decade thinking I didn't like country music any longer, and it...

    Serial Swatter Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter

    Thank you for posting the only comment in this entire thread worth reading. The rest fall somewhere between hang him from his toenails to hug him, it's all those thug cops. Your analysis is spot on, and I hope to see more rational discourse like this from others.

    FS: NFC S3 Mini-ITX Case

    So, I'm confused; you don't have the listed 1060 anymore? If not, here's a free bump for a sweet looking case.

    Robots Keep the Homeless Away in San Francisco

    Swearing in a news story? How can you! It's almost Christmas! I'm going to go watch a Hallmark movie about people learning to love again, and something with a dog. But seriously, that's terrible about your kids and the cult. I sincerely hope you are able to turn things around. Don't let the...

    Robots Keep the Homeless Away in San Francisco

    I thought the issue was homeless people shitting on sidewalks, not people shitting on them.

    Robots Keep the Homeless Away in San Francisco

    I think he was assuming your "modest proposal" was satirical. You know, a little more Johnathan Swift and a little less Adolf Hitler.

    Robots Keep the Homeless Away in San Francisco

    If folks here don't recognize the SCPA as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, they may be missing the most remarkable part of this. (I saw "SCPA campus in San Francisco" and assumed it was some kind of junior college or something.) Too bad all these homeless folks aren't...

    Ready Player One Trailer: Overwatch, Battletoads, and More

    I haven't had a chance to watch the trailer yet, but I really enjoyed the book. This super rich Steve Jobs guy is dying, and leaves his fortune to the person who can nerd out the hardest on the 80's pop culture scavenger hunt. Also some commentary on what people will be good for after robots...

    Amazon Prime App Finally Available for Apple TV

    Wonder if that's in response to Google pulling YouTube from Amazon Fire TV? I'm sure this isn't something they'd just do from scratch overnight, but the timing seems like quite a coincidence.

    Using Light to Assemble Electronic Components Instead of Robots

    Take that, robots! After all those jobs they stole from humans; how's it feel to be on the receiving end? Now, how long before light becomes self aware?

    Google Collects Android Users’ Locations Even When Location Services Are Disabled Far be it from me to underestimate a giant corporation's capacity for shady B.S., but there may be a less nefarious explanation. The Wired story I linked talks about improving emergency messages sent to peoples' phones. Currently, the 911...

    Bill Gates Buys Big Chunk of Land in Arizona to Build “Smart City”

    One Bitcoin Transaction Now Uses as Much Energy as Your House in a Week

    I think if it were a solar/wind powered Nigeria, no big deal. But it's an entire Nigeria worth of mostly coal power, which is a different story.

    Bitcoin Gold Initiates Hard Fork Split to Create New Cryptocurrency

    Just when it looked like midrange GPU prices might return to something resembling normalcy in time for a Christmas upgrade. You'd think Intel would start their own currency that's CPU dependent, to start their own gold rush.

    72% of Consumers Don’t Know What Net Neutrality Is

    I thought it was worth pointing out that in the 16 hours the error went seemingly without notice we managed to politicize this issue without even reading the article. I think that's a good example of "what's wrong with the world today," and not unique to [H]. It seems checking the facts before...

    NASA Warns That Your Eclipse Glasses May Be Unsafe

    Come on now, this is NASA. They aren't out to get you. They're not the FCC. As someone who has been looking at those glasses, I am glad they do have some sort of certification. Eye protection is not something to guess on. I would hate to be responsible for ordering a few thousand pairs for kids...

    Sapphire RX 470 Mining Edition Card for Sale in UK

    I have heard from all the cool mining kids that these cards are the bee's knees and the cat's pajamas. I've heard ROI is about 3 days, and the fans at full load are so quiet, they put out - 20 db. I sure hope everyone doesn't snatch these little wonders all up before I can get a couple dozen...

    Social Media as Harmful as Drugs

    People arebless likely to lie while in a bar than online? Have you ever been to a bar? Oh, the tales you'll hear. Also, if you spend enough time in a bar, you'll almost certainly end up in court, either as a witness or defendant. I somewhat agree with with you on oversharing and the possibility...

    Samsung Employee Stole 8,474 Smartphones to Pay $800,000 Gambling Debt

    One has to wonder how an average person accumulates nearly a billion won in debt. I'd think there'd be a cut off point, where they quit extending you credit. Although, that may be how he ended up in the wheelchair to begin with.

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

    But, according to the article, he was not fined for testimony in court to dispute his wife's ticket. This all stems from an email he sent saying, "I had this thought. As an engineer, I looked into it, and here's the math showing my work. Do what you will with it." It's not like he presented...

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    As in, on paper you aren't required to do any deliveries, but if you don't, you start noticing your hours keep getting cut back, and you get passed over for every promotion... I find it hard to believe they could classify them as independent contractors for only the delivery portion of their...

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    On one hand, I can see the benefits. This is a lot more realistic than Amazon's drone delivery, in terms of months before it's ready for nationwide deployment rather than years. This could be a $ bonus for the employees, who may already be driving for Uber or some other side hustle, and a simple...
