    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    I feel like this is a non-sequitor not relevant to the issue, to be honest. Yes, there are cameras in big stores. However, from time to time, wives (or husbands) might send husbands (or wives or mistresses or whatever) photos to entice their partner. They might take these photos on their...

    Is GT710 good enough to run 4k @60hz and 2nd monitor at 1080p?

    Honestly, if you check out the list of supported resolutions, even ancient cards, like the Radeon 9800 series from the late 90s; they usually state they can do "resolutions up to XXXX" where XXXX was 4k resolution. For the time, pretty extreme resolutions as output. The catch-22 is monitors that...

    Cliff Bleszinski openly admits going woke can hurt games.

    Woke, more or less, means you've adopted the set of beliefs generally incorporated under the umbrella of intersectional feminism. This includes some core tenants like everyone experiences oppression for different facets of their group-dynamics/class structures and one can experience multiple...

    Number of Switch vs. Wii games launched over first 3 years

    Completely agree that it was amazing... in it's day. It being cartoon sprite driven actually stands up pretty well except for an outdated limited 256 colour pallet. It stands up way better than even slightly older games like Deus Ex that were textured polygon driven and whose polygon count is...

    Number of Switch vs. Wii games launched over first 3 years

    Don't you know, they've released for the switch hundred of emulated games you can buy? They are probably rigging the numbers by counting 'BREATH OF FIRE 3!!!!!' as a GAME released for the SWITCH.

    AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening

    That screenshot, if an accurate representation, really goes to show sharpening is doing a much better job than DLSS. DLSS looks so blurry and without fine detail it's pathetic. I feel like the textures went from HD to SD or back at least 10 years in gaming texture graphics details. It looks...

    PCIe SSDs Will Overtake SATA in 2019

    The DHS Issues Medical Advisory for Medtronic Cardiac Devices

    My guess is maybe a senator or a few rich congress men have one or more in their chest, so they are worried about politicians being remotely killed via e-terrorists/foreign hackers. As unlikely as it is....

    Google Fined $1.7 Billion Over Monopolistic Practices

    Maybe not. Their 2017 revenue was 117B and 2018 was 136B. So that's just over one percent of they revenue. If you were making 136 thousand a year, is having to pay a thousand dollar deductible for an insurance issue a huge chunk of change? It's less than one tenth of your monthly income one...

    AMD Talks 3D Stacking at Rice Presentation

    Commonly accepted values based upon brain wave states suggests about 4hz to 45hz. Not megahertz but hertz. Like a processor though during a single hertz many different tasks seem to be able to be run at once. So perhaps that's a billion things happening 45 times a second when you count reading...

    Prisoners in England to Be Taught Code

    I'd say great argument but you just made an insult in the form of an ad hominem. Nice try. Furthermore, I wasn't the one to imply HTML/CCS were coding languages that would be taught by this learn to code program. That was the person I am replying to. I just quoted his language of choices back to...

    Then the program has failed right off the bat, imo. The former entry level stuff is set on track to be programmable via AIs within two decades if not sooner. There's already countless 'website-building' websites out there that will do basic HTML/CCS/JS for you with plugins, pre-made scripts...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    I think that might be more jarring for people to go from slower to fast to slower. It's akin to how one can 'sense' when FPS drops in a video game or see/sense micro-stuttering. It might make more people sick or disrupt the disbelief what you are watching is real and pull you out of the film...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    Why? Superior frame rate produces better quality results. Why would you want slower FPS for some scenes except for the sole purpose of saving bandwidth or smaller file sizes or legacy of being "used" to dialogue being slow.

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    In my entire three screenings in theatres I saw, representing probably 200 to 300 people, I didn't witness anyone looking sick or queasy leaving the theatre. Not many. This was the point of the letter. To plead to theatres to upgrade. This plead occurred about a decade ago when they were...

    Marvel Uploads a New Avengers: Endgame Trailer

    We'll see. Word on the street from reviewers is that the Captain Marvel movie is set like 20 years PRIOR to this movie in the 1990s so it had virtually ZERO tie-in to end-game so you can fully enjoy End Game without watching Captain Marvel. This movie itself has pretty bad reviews even on the...

    Should I wait till summer for the GTX 1180 or get a 2070 or 2080 now ?

    Every dollar spent on R&D has no return on investment until the R&D is finished and the product comes to fruition. You often have to continue to invest in R&D over time to develop a product. All initial R&D investment can seen as bad money if you are only looking at the cost as a loss on your...

    Google Pay Equity Analysis Results in $9.7 Million in Adjustments

    FTFY. :P Most of the adjustments went to new hires whom with a tech company tend to be younger-people. So younger people were getting "underpaid" compared to their "older peers" and then were given more money. The funny part is the "older peers" usually get paid more because they've been...

    George Lucas Is Reportedly Fixing Luke Skywalker for "Star Wars: Episode IX"

    1080 TI vs 1080 TI SLI vs 2080 TI Personal Review

    Very interesting results. I'm surprised by the range. Sometimes one 1080ti is like 85 percent of the 2080ti with a price difference of almost 100 percent more for the later. Other times the 2080ti seems to be like 35 to 40 percent faster than a single TI. It seems depending upon the game that...

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