    Huawei Phones Likely Spying on You Sez US Intel Chiefs

    I'm as cynical as the next guy so this whole "Watch out for China!" bullshit coming from an agency responsible for the bulk collection of data and use of secret courts in clear violation of the 4th Amendment really grinds on me.

    Coinbase Ordered to Turn Over Identities of 14,355 Cryptocurrency Traders to the IRS

    I'm certain the IRS would be more than willing to seize the coin in the process if you don't have the scratch to pay. They would liquidate it and deduct it from your bill. :-)

    Anker PowerCore+ 26800 $57.99 @ Amazon w/ Promo Code

    It's only 26WH of energy. You should be able to hand carry up to 100WH of battery capacity on an airplane I believe. The regulation is designed to cover most laptop computers.

    $400 for two cores? Get outta here! Such rubbish. If you're going to spend $999 on 10 cores why not just spend $1199 on 12?

    Retail 7700K Not Up to 5GHz - 3600MHz

    When you start at 4.5GHz nothing short of 4.9GHz is close to 5GHz. Percentages be damned. 4.95/4.9 = sure (you got close) 4.8x = 4.8x

    Google Puts Boston Dynamics Up For Sale

    Sounds like a intellectually challenged Executive assistant doesn't understand that research takes money and time both of which Google has and properly spent within companies like Boston Dynamics could result in a product potentially worth trillions of dollars.

    It worked (and continues to) fine on the families laptops and tablets. The simple machines (Media PC, etc) but my gaming rig it cratered right to hell. I think it stayed up 10 days.

    Should You Switch To Windows 10 Or A Mac?

    I used to rely on the phrase "Windows just works" because even with 8.1 it did just that... it worked. Day or night. Rain or shine. It just worked. Battery backup to keep brown outs at bay. External Hard drive for system images once a quarter only hooked up during the image. Cloud drive for...

    Write And Draw On Web Pages With Microsoft Edge

    I use a much more complicated method when trying to direct end users to specific web content I need them to use during support scenarios. It would be nice to be able to just draw on the page and then screenshot it.

    SCOTUS deferred to the Department of Labor's interpretation of "security screenings" following the Portal to Portal Act of 1947. The Portal-to-Portal Act eliminates from working time certain travel and walking time and other similar “preliminary” and “postliminary” activities performed...

    Supreme Court Rules No Pay For Security Screening

    SCOTUS differed to the Department of Labor's interpretation of security screenings in relation to the Portal to Portal Act of 1947. All that needs be done to rectify this is have the Department of Labor classify security screenings as a job function akin to putting on protective clothing.

    Amazon Workers Want To Be Paid For Waiting In Line

    What's epidemic is employers thinking they can treat people anyway they want and get away with it. Your ancestors fought for rights and entitlements because they actually experienced the kind of life you advocate first hand and didn't much like it. I wonder why?
