    Windows 10 New Start Button redesign

    Windows 95,98,ME,2000,XP, Vista were good start menus. At Windows 7 you had to click extra clicks to open up more menus because everything was collapsed. After 7 it went downhill. I liked the Windows XP start menu the most. The old menu was more structured and required less clicks to load a...

    Another data “accident” at Facebook

    Too many privacy and spying problems with Facebook. Same with Google. Censorship is happening on a massive level also on all these social media and video platforms. Your security, privacy, and free speech are all being violated at the same time. Who knows what else has been leaked. All those...

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    There's a lot of content that is being blackholed and even deleted. Some content is pushed back many pages. Youtube for example has authoritative sources listed first which is a very subjective and controversial matter in itself. Any controversial content even for non political stuff is messed...

    What is the recommended amount of RAM these days?

    64GB or higher is great for heavy users. The more the better. I had 32GB for years and i was always maxing it out with tons of browser tabs open. If you have adblockers and addons those eat a lot of memory also. Really the more memory you can get the better in the long run and the short term ;)

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    Google is censoring searches and content too much these days. Anything not inline with the mainstream is censored. Any free thinking or speculation about controversial topics is shutdown on their platforms like Youtube. Google use to be a company with a great reputation. Now it's a shadow of its...

    Amazon Is Developing a Game Streaming Service

    At some point everyone is going to stream everything. We are all going to live in the cloud eventually. I bet at some point our own windows installations will be hosted at Microsoft themselves in their cloud. We will just boot into the cloud. That is the future. Subscriptions. Micro charges...

    USB-C Audio Is "Dead"

    The headphone jack is time tested and mother approved. It will last another 15 to 20 years at least. The headphone jack gives you more flexibility on what kind of headset or earbuds you want to use anyways.

    Study of Cellphone Risks Finds "Some Evidence" of Link to Cancer, at Least in Male Rats

    Just gotta watch out. Some places show a bunch of birds and certain animals dropping dead from 5g test setups. Not sure about the credibility on everything. Just gotta keep the phone away from your main organs to be safe. Don't leave it on in your pocket too long unless you want to be sterile.

    Microsoft Quietly Cuts Off Windows 7 Support for Older Intel Computers

    Windows 7 is still usable with an Athlon XP if you have a decent video card with 2-3GB of ram. Windows 7 is the last one to be able to run on non SSE2 cpus i think. I got the latest Linux Mint to work with an Athlon XP system and it seems to work just fine. You just need to install custom build...

    Ubisoft Believes Next Gen Is the Last for Consoles

    The problem with streaming is the cost of running those machines on the other end. People will be paying by the minute most likely. Everyone will be nickel and dime'd. Either by the minute or a straight yearly subscription not including the games you have to buy also. It might cost everyone more...

    Windows 10: Upgrade Now or Upgrade Tonight

    Why wouldn't they force you to upgrade if you weren't going to do it on your own ;) They figured they have nothing to lose if you weren't going to upgrade anyways.

    Doubling RAM On Smartphones Is "Silly"

    You can never have enough ram. I had 32GB of ram in win7. 7 didn't take advantage of it but 8 did a little more. Now 10 can reach around 16-20GB during serious usage. Always go for more if you can.

    Windows 10 Usage Climbing As Windows 7 Share Drops Sharply

    Windows 7 32bit works alright with 2GB, athlon xp 3200+, and a decent video card. Can use it online for basic usage like emails and 480p 360p video. HD stuff works if you got one of the last video cards made for agp. Still have a dfi lanparty nforce2 ultra B running today on windows 7.

    It's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it. Especially food and most importantly water. In a week most would be dead without water. Dead or extremely weak to do anything. You could last a few weeks without food but after a day or 2 you will go insane. People...

    Windows 3.1 Took Down A French Airport

    I remember working on a printer system for a company last year sometime and the printer was industrial. It was as big as a warehouse this printer. It was also hooked to a computer which had windows 98. Expensive cost of the hardware limits some places from upgrading a lot of times ;)

    Windows 10, Nvidia being left in the dust.

    I have 2 7990s crossfired. For Windows 10 the drivers got a lot better. The original first driver i couldn't even install without the system crashing during the installation. Had to wait awhile. Now its good though. 2.0 wddm seems a lot better than 1.2 it was before. Online is just smoother...

    The Evolution Of Modern Game Controllers

    Microsoft: Windows 10 Will Be On 1B Devices

    Only way they will hit 1 billion is if they add a classic mode feature which makes the whole UI look like windows xp. The menu is still too much like 8 with all the tiles and all that. They need it to look like the original windows more. They need to stop resisting what the public wants. Losing...
