    MSI GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK Overclocked 4K Review @ [H]

    Quit digging, it makes you look like you're 14 (and that's besides the lack of basic English skills, i.e., capitalization, although to your credit you appear to have at least passing acquaintance with use of the period). It was 980ti vs 980ti as was made clear in the article abstract (reading...

    Should You Hope Your Child Never Has To Drive A Car?

    There are times, especially in really nasty congested traffic where autonomous autos, ON A NETWORK would be a better means of managing the congestion (I used to work at TxDot, we did studies on congestion management). Imagine a network that knew where everyone wanted to be and could adjust...

    Hail SATA: Performance SATA Solid State Drive Roundup @ [H]

    Comparing SSDs to each other is like arguing about which wax applied to a supercar trims the most milliseconds off the trap time. Unless your application requires HPC performance, just get the cheapest drive (hell, get two and save an image once a once). Compared to spinning drives the...

    Heads-Up Displays In Cars Can Hinder Driver Safety

    You mean bright shiny things are a distraction? Derp, really? It takes a study to discover that a driver in a car on a public roadway isn't functionally the same as a fighter pilot in a dogfight? So anytime you see someone driving a car with a cellphone in their hand and anything hanging...

    NASA Lets You Experience “Pluto Time”

    It's not about you, and if your panties are in a bunch try googling: Perhaps the article was meant to make readers curious about light intensity. Or perhaps it was meant as whinger bait.

    Google’s European Chief: We Don’t Always Get It Right

    Too bad Google doesn't seem to be aware that America is not a uniform left-coast liberal values driven culture that will blindly follow Google like a horde of sheep.

    Grand Theft Auto V Video Card Performance Preview @ [H]

    MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING High Resolution Review @ [H]

    Looking at the 1080 comparison wherein the 770 62.6 FPS in BF4 Ultra vs the 960 at 57 FPS is ~10 % lower, I'm thoroughly unimpressed because my 760 SSC was about 10% lower than a 770 and that was in 2013! So exactly what is the value proposition for a 960 vs a cheaper 760? Or is there just...

    MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING Video Card Review

    Agree completely, moreover, based on "apples to apples" comparisons (which can be stupidly [H]ard to come by (and by apples to apples I mean, "instead of taking the 970 & 980 and testing them SOLELY to other high end cards running 1440P (4K), test them ALSO against other cards running at the...

    New York Prosecutor Wants Harsher Texting While Driving Penalties

    This^^^ QFT. And for the 1% of the people who commute to work on mass transit, perhaps a cell node/wifi on the vehicle? If not, then do WTF we did before 2000- READ A F*CKING BOOK. For f*cks sake; use your head for more than a way to keep your ears separate; your "right" to text/talk too...

    NSA Employees Intercept, Share Private Nude Photos

    Why assume it's his fault or choice to "now pump up his cause"? Are you so naive as to believe that the media is merely a disinterested conduit of truth, justice and the American Way? For all you or I know, he's had everything out on the table from the beginning and the media report only...

    What Planet Does Larry Page Live On?

    Slaves were no longer working the fields and were replaced by mechanisms that required no pay, but, at roughly the same time, there was job creation in factories to absorb some of the new workers. (And by the way, there was NO MINIMUM WAGE IN 1865) And there was little work in the...

    What Planet Does Larry Page Live On?

    We have a 3 person (and one dog) household with an income (unadjusted) of about 110K/yr. The house is paid off, the 3 cars are paid off and this was on a single income that was 'only' 36K 20 yrs ago. So yes, $200K *should* keep a family of four in at least a house, car and food...but it...

    Devils Canyon i7-4790K $279.99 Microcenter pre-order

    Now if only someone would benchmark it OC'd against a 2600K OC'd using the same damn benchmarks so we could have a meaningful comparison to use for decision making, life would better. My 2600K is rock solid at a relatively modest 4.3 GHz (a little wobbly at 4.5) what would be the real...

    Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Review

    Hmmm. I'm running a i5-2500K at 4.3 GHz on about a 20-25% improvement UNLESS the app is heavily threaded, where the i7 would show a bigger improvement. Meh for now. Rather spend the money on a 1TB SSD.
