    Popular and successful games you just don't care for

    Hate the story and most of the characters in anything made past the 90's so if it features non skippable or just plain too many cutscenes, its an insta pass for me. Generally though open world games let me play my own way after suffering through the initial cutscenes . Too much worthless...

    Apple Took Out a CES Ad to Troll Its Competitors over Privacy

    Don't believe for a second that Apple is any less likely to sell private info to third parties however it is a smart marketing move that'll be hard to top. This may even motivate the Isheep to pay attention to privacy in the future.

    LG Embarrasses with OLED Burn-In at SID Tradeshow

    I guess one more reason to stick with projectors. My JVC still produces awesome blacks after 8 years of ownership(still original lamp) and will only be replaced when JVC releases a 4k projector at a similar price.

    Micro-LED Display Boasts of 1 Million Nits Capability

    This would easily kill off DLP in mini projectors. TI is the worst when it comes to recycling old junk just because they can.

    Uber Car’s “Safety” Driver Streamed TV Show before Fatal Crash

    Uber + Volvo. Every single news article on the subject. It's about time Volvo should take Uber to court. This accident was entirely Uber's fault , no doubt the lawyers would happily come up with something to make it stick.

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich Out Over Relationship With Former Employee

    He'll be replaced by a chick who'll do even worse but will be impossible to fire due to gender politics. I for one think Ottelini was the last decent boss Intel had .

    Windows Systems Performance Impacts from Spectre and Meltdown

    There is no conspiracy. MS found a new way to screw us over and they're riding it all the way to the bank. I expect a nice bump to their stock price in the near future ( same for hardware manufacturers).

    Netflix Now Supports HDR on Windows 10, but You’ll Need an Intel or NVIDIA GPU

    Considering how much time it took videocards to output a reasonable accurate 23.976Hz , this should take about ten years to work on all computers.

    Fox Chief Disses Netflix: "Churn-Like Environment" Doesn’t Appeal to Filmmakers

    LG Dismisses New Samsung QLED TV Technology: “It's Still An LCD Panel”

    OLED is the only tech that can comfortably beat my 6 year old pj in the blacks (still on first lamp) . Glad to see LG at least making an effort on improving it. With Sony onboard we might just get the best of both worlds.

    Star Wars: Episode 9 To Be Shot On 65mm Film

    With the amount of cgi nowdays when even the actors are manipulated digitally seems like a total waste of good celluloid unless they decided to render everything at 8k. Which is highly unlikely considering even 4k renders are a luxury. Many films could benefit from 65mm, this isn't one of them.

    Millennials Admit Using Phones To Avoid Talking To People

    My guess the talking part isn't the issue , more of having to listen someones whinging about how people don't talk anymore (there is always one ). Before phones it was books and walkmans so little has changed.
