    Texas Is Trying to Block Tesla from Servicing Its Cars

    I see that even a-holes are bigger in Texas too... So much for innovation.

    Get Ready for Targeted Ads on Your Smart TV

    We use Roku's all over the house. Sure they're probably collecting SOME data but nowhere near what the "smart" function of a smart TV is collecting.

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Isn't it already a rights problem when someone says "I don't agree with you and am broadly labeling your words as hate speech"?

    A Reminder from AMD: Our Processors Aren't Affected by New "SPOILER" Vulnerability

    I've been wondering the same thing. AMD keeps getting closer and closer.

    Thank you. This is pretty much how I feel about all this.

    Gearbox Teases a March Borderlands Announcement

    As I've said before... I'm not really invested unless there's innovation. These days a shooter is a shooter is a shooter. Adding loot doesn't change anything.

    Researchers Create an MMO for Neural Networks

    A naturally human thing to do is to teach AI to be adversarial. The first ever game we put them into they're forced to combat each other....

    Cryptocurrency Mining Slowdown Could Lead to GPU Price Cuts

    No. We will claim prices will drop in the hopes that will create a demand but will never actually drop them.

    Nvidia Adds Metro Exodus to RTX Bundle

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    With this mentality who stays in business? They should all just quit since someone else has already thought of 'it'. But counter to your point why is everyone else getting on the EV bandwagon since Tesla already did it?

    Google Employees Claim Work on Chinese Search Engine Continues

    Google is such a strange beast... Definitely an evil beast but a strange one. What other company listens to their employees as much as Google does yet is as invasive as Facebook?

    Samsung Galaxy S10 Preorders in South Korea Are Slower than Its Predecessors

    This and the fact that for so little innovation the costs are increasing dramatically. It's always been a bad idea to copy Apple's pricing model. Especially now that Apple isn't the innovator that it used to be.

    World War Z: Zombies Are Coming Trailer

    Yeah, my first thought was "L4D 3?" Looks interesting enough. My biggest complaint about the L4D series was the lack of variety in weapons. Looks like there's explosives and stuff but basically it seems to be the same game.

    Borderlands 3 Could be Revealed at PAX East 2019

    Question is what will it bring that will make me want to play it? I too played the crap out of BL and BL2. Will be interesting to see...

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

    Didn't Lucas start the Star Wars f-up with crap like Jar Jar Binks? Or the numerous dumbarse edits he did to the originals to make them 'more fun'? Has Lucas learned his lesson? Or will Lucas lose his lunch like the loser we liken him to be? Loser Lucas? carried away...

    Old BioWare Has Become "A Distant Memory"

    Agreed. I wouldn't fault Bioware as much as I would EA. Bioware has turned to sh-t just like all the other companies EA gobbles up and vomits out. The only reason EA is still around is because the ignorant masses keep ignorantly buying their games thinking: "This one's it! This one will be...

    The Biggest Problem with Triple-A, Open-World Games: "They're Boring as Hell"

    Uh...menial tasks have been in video games for some time now. Why else would you have quests and side quests that require you to travel back and forth across the map so many times? I guess this is a new level of tedium?

    The End of Blu-ray

    People like you and I aren't the majority. When I rip a movie that I love to Plex I don't encode it with Handbrake. I leave it raw so that it's as if it were off the BR disc. But let's face it. As data speeds and latencies become better for the consumer hard copies will be less and less...

    Backblaze Analyzes SSD Reliability

    I've recently started monitoring all of our drives at work and find it fascinating how SSDs deteriorate no matter what and I have some enterprise grade HDDs that are years old with almost zero errors and claim to have 100% life left. Don't get me wrong, I put SSDs wherever I can but when I want...

    Samsung Unveils a Folding Smartphone

    I like it. Like the look. The perceived function ('perceived' because we really don't yet know how well it works). The style. Even the dumb notch doesn't actually bother me this time... probably because of the sheer amount of screen space. Don't like the cost. Don't like the cost at all. If this...

    Here Is 10 Minutes of RAGE 2 Gameplay

    Seems fun. Imma keep mah eye on it. And why don't they just say "Alpha"? Isn't that what "Pre-Beta" is? Or are we mincing concepts now?

    Anthem: 15 Minutes of Lost Arcanist Gameplay

    My thoughts exactly. The more I see this game the more it looks like Destiny2. I stopped playing that game pretty quickly because the mechanics and character development sucked.

    Rumors Suggest Nvidia Could Launch Turing Cards Without Raytracing

    So... this is just a 1080ti with more monkeys and hamsters? Silly Nvidia.... they're still trying to finger out their supply problem. Must suck to see those warehouses so full and have no idea other than 'business as usual: pull the wool!'.

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    So we already have so much main stream 4k content and in home screen penetration that we need 8k? I mean I'm sure 8k will be great but uh... did I miss the 4k revolution?

    Google Drops Bid for DoD JEDI Program

    It means that our delicate mindsets can't seem to understand that DoD stuff is necessary. It means that Google's already been working on this stuff for DoD and now someone else has to reinvent that part of Google's wheel to catch up to where they were at. Or at least until the next set of...

    Google Drops Bid for DoD JEDI Program

    Crap like this is how China will overtake us. I understand standing by the principle of not wanting to 'do evil' by extension of having your tech possibly involved in hurting people. But humanity is full of a**holes that want to control everything and those a**holes aren't often on your side. So...

    US Army is Investigating a Quad Bore Rifle

    Are you all really that ignorant? This is a proof of concept more than anything. I'm sure the guy has patented the tech in the base weapon and the military will convert it into something they can field. Do you really think they'd send anyone out with four rounds per magazine??? Come on...
