    The Verge Ridiculed for "How We Built a $2000 Custom Gaming PC" Video

    I noticed this several times when mainstream media reports on tech or on stuff out company does. Even if you contact the media about mistakes they wrote before releasing it, they discard it as "nobody really knows the difference anyhow" and they didn't change it. I stopped watching mainstream...

    Speedier Broadband Standards? Pai’s FCC Says 25Mbps Is Fast Enough

    25Mbps for broadband is more than enough, home networks don't need more. 4g of 75Mbps is not enough for a single phone those NEED 1.4Gbps so you need 5g. Sounds legit.

    US Senator Asks Government Agencies to Stop Using Flash

    Politics is about influencing the 99%, they don't care about frivolities like truth or hard data. Their audience gets their information through mainsteam media. If you see how mainstream media handles news and facts, you know how little actual facts most people get. We had our national TV over...

    IBM Bans All Removable Storage, for All Staff, Everywhere

    Since they are a renowned tech company I hope they are not naïve about this. I mean do they also ban any other piece of technology that can hold data? Smartphones, mp3 players, smartwatches,...

    Researchers Believe Aliens Could Send Malware and Destroy Humanity

    "researchers" ...right. So the only way they found to have computers that are not connected to a network is sending them to the moon? How are you going to use those computers? Either connect them remotely , ow wait that would put them in a network , or send people on a regular basis to go check...

    Blockchain Startup Takes $11, Leaves Penis

    Discusssion ...TokennDesk. did you spill some sugary beverages on your keyboard lately. So they got $11, or $11 per backer , if they ended up with 200 backers that's $2200 , in the article it says something about $3000. How did it become millions. Did the culprit use his 3000 to but bitcoin...

    Indeed , in case of a real emergency I hope the night shift doesn't let the day shift send out the warning just so they can go home in time, waiting at the door eyeballing the clock

    Why Hasn’t the Year of the Linux Desktop Happened Yet?

    afaik the main reason why people prefer windows is because it's what they grew up with and/or what they learned to use at school. Microsoft knows exactly why it gives all schools special deals on windows and office. Most people don't care enough to want to "learn" a new OS. Most linux distros I...

    Boeing CEO: We’re Going to Beat Elon Musk to Mars

    I've lost a lot of respect when musk announced he wanted to sent mark Mars by shooting a car into space. That's just promotional bullshit. It serves no purpose and shows why privatisation of something like space isn't really a good thing. So if Boeing's project is a bit more scientific and would...

    EVE Developers Pulling Out of VR

    I tried both rift and Oculus and I would buy one if the screens were better. Room scale games are in general as interesting as playing a Wii party game on your own. I think they haven't released a version with a higher resolution, because only a small amount of people have PC's that can run...

    PC Gamer Proclaims Dual Shock 4 Best Controller for PC Gaming

    Since when is installing software a hurdle for a pc enthusiast? I've been using my ds3s for years with scptool service. Installed it once using a Bluetooth dongle. Never had any issues with it. Works very well. It's the only thing I used from my PS3 the last few years.

    Samsung Officially Unveils $499 Odyssey Virtual Reality Headset

    If the screens would overlap , you'd not get depth at all. Both eyes need a different viewpoint to perceive depth. The newer gpus just use a better optimised pipeline for multiple renderviews, instead of the old one render pipeline to one renderview

    Samsung Introducing New Quantum Dot Curved Monitors At CES 2017

    Android Ransomware Infects LG Smart TV

    I never understood the need for smart TVs. It's slower and less secure than a PC. Things like TVs, fridges etc should not go online for any reason in my book. If my current TV dies, I'll probably never plug the new one into the network. TV makers should focus on making TVs. Fix the HDMI FPS lock...

    Tesla Sued Because 469hp Is Not 700hp

    many cars and motorcycles use horsepower on the crank not on the wheel anyways, so if you measure it at the wheels it's always lower. They could indeed just dyno the engine, but it's not easy to compare combustion engines with electric engines anyhow. Totally different power curves

    Teen Uncovers Route To Free Web Surfing On T-Mobile U.S. Network

    Yeah exactly what I was thinking. Bypassing their firewalls when you do a speedtest, isn't that a form false advertising. It's fooling your customers in my book. Poor kid with the gun cooky. If that's a gun, then I'm superman.

    Beware: These Android Apps Will Drain Your Phone's Battery

    Yeah, the fb apps are a horrible waste of space memory and battery. I uninstalled them and use the site, my phone battery now easily lasts 30 to 50% longer. Apps like greenify are also nice, they allow you to shutdown the services that apps start to keep you constantly up to date(which you...

    Retail RX 480 4GB to 8GB Memory Unlock Mod Works

    What he said, this is no blunder nor is it free memory. These cards didn't meet the specs for the 8gb version or weren't stable, so they are sold with a BIOS which makes them more stable but perform a bit less. It makes more sense to sell them cheaper than throwing them away. You might be...

    Price Warriors Are Vandalizing GeForce 1080 Reviews

    I've seen prices up to €680 for 1070gtx and a crazy €899 for the 1080, I guess the retailers want to get rid of the older cards while the 10 range is under stocked. I want one but not at these prices, I'll have to wait a while guess.

    Many Of Your Android Apps Send Unnecessary Hidden Data

    I noticed this as well. The most basic apps on android have services running. 80 % of the apps I use have services and most of them don't need it. I wished google would be a little more strict about this or at least let me deny the service rights for some apps or hibernate specific apps' service...

    Peter Molyneux: 'It's Over, I Will Not Speak To The Press Again'

    Molyneux is funny, he so craves to be in the center of attention that he organizes interviews with the press to say that he will not talk to the press.
