    How Much Voltage is Too Much Voltage?

    Call your local utility. Sometimes loads change and voltages can shift and they need to re-balance. Not a big deal.

    FF VII: Remake. New news/teaser trailer

    I did a play through of the original 7 just a month ago...and yes, it was that linear; midgard was always on rails IMO...and still is. As for textures...I think this might have been the price for a perfectly buttery smooth game the whole time IMO while on ancient equipment. I never saw a FPS...

    Gamestop won't close it's doors

    Between the people who don't care if people die because it might inconvenience their lives (what you are indicating) and the people who think the world is ending...somewhere, in there, is the truth. BTW..coronavirus (COVID-19) is a variant of SARS. It is a nasty little bugger (much worse than...

    Just got my first projector - Is this decent?

    This really needs to be said about projectors...if you are happy with it then it is a good purchase. The moment you ask for an opinion on something you bought you are asking to seed doubt in your mind which will ruin the experience. Every time I buy a new projector (4 so far in my life) I...

    Buy 2080Ti now, or wait for holidays?

    nVidia right now is in the drivers seat. However I do no think they are sitting idle. I would not be surprised if there is not significant ray tracing efforts going on. While their first debut was not all unicorn and was not something that made me say "well, that is dumb". I...

    Astrophysicist Says He Knows How to Build a Time Machine

    The thing is...if he could even pull off a 100 ms, that would be enough to be the richest person in the world in the span of a few days via the stock markets.

    Thurrott: Minecraft Is Getting a Whole New Look With Ray Tracing Support

    Yes and might be a "long game" kind of thing. Right now the DEV's have gotten really good and non RTX stuff with a series of very clever substitutes. The gap between an RTX card that can surpass that at the same price point just isn't reasonable at this point. Hell...doom did...

    Scientists develop device to detect bacteria in minutes, not days

    I amazed her that the people against this don't realize that electron microscopes for this level of testing are benchtop sized. This is not DOA....far from it.

    Bounty Hunters Can Get Phone Locations for $300

    You aren't being honest. Cops are paid bounty hunters as well, they just paid if they only do their job "half right" or "not at all". Cops aren't all perfect either..there are shit bags there too. So lets use your logic and throw them out as well, who needs cops. As for throwing out the...

    Bounty Hunters Can Get Phone Locations for $300

    You didn't read the article did you? The issue isn't the bondsman who do have a legal right to track people is the bondsman who are abusing their privldeges for personal profit. This is no different than a cop using is squad car to get around waiting for a red right.

    Toyota Unveils Guardian System That Can Make Decisions on the Fly to Avoid Accidents

    Dude..this the internet. If it is digital or digitized and it can be used as evidence and facts regardless of legitimacy or relevancy to current standards. The issue with that crash wasn't that it was how Airbus responded to it. Airbus has a really bad habit of not...

    BioWare Shows Off Anthem at CES

    Anthem is very much about your "suit" and synergizing with other players. Cool downs are pretty short so it is meant to be a hybrid of gun play and your suit.

    BioWare Shows Off Anthem at CES

    I am cautiously optimistic about this game...but after the recent changes to BF5 "live services" I have serious doubts again. I just don't get it. BF5 was decent and, charging for a fucking "red dot"....go to hell.

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season Is Now an Epic Store Exclusive

    DICE Apologizes to Battlefield V Players for Dumbing Down the Game

    Every PVP game that increases TTK usually lands up losing a large percent of its player base. Usually people that get killed by campers are situationally unaware of of the map and land up running directly into a shooting lane again and again and again. Don't get me wrong...I suck and PVP...

    True "pay when you need it" options for GSM tablet

    True "pay when you need it" options for GSM tablet

    It seems what I am asking for is available every where in the world but the united states. We have standard plans through Verizon for our smart phones. However, I have a GSM based tablet. Anywhere the world I go I can buy a sim card and load data on as I need it as use the tablet. Not an...

    New York Passes Minumum Wage Law for Uber and Lyft Drivers

    Better yet, let the government determine what everyone should get paid based upon who fills their reelection coffers the most. I mean, that is what just happened now...might as well go all in.

    New York Passes Minumum Wage Law for Uber and Lyft Drivers

    Then we should abolish "independent contractors" all together and force all jobs to have a minimum wage because both groups "the business" and the "employee" are trying to bypass something to their benefit.

    The Waymo One Commercial Self-Driving Vehicle Service Has Officially Launched

    Nobody says it will be one size fits all pricing for all uses cases. In cases where you live out side of a certain zone you may need to pay a "no passenger fee" to get the vehicle to your house equal to the distance they don't make revenue on. Revenue is revenue..if there is a model they can...

    Announcing the Epic Games Store

    I doubt it. Basic economics says that a lower price will generate more sales. There are many more games I would try at $45 vs $60 and the new store makes that a ZERO COST to to developer. For example, I will not buy darksiders III @ $60. It is not a $60 game TO ME. However, many who have...

    Announcing the Epic Games Store

    I found all the gabe followers on the forum. >.< Epic is the only other "game company" out there that has the raw cash to do this. All the other game stores out there are small potatoes compared to Steam. If they go after this hard for 3-4 years then steam WILL have a competitor because a)...

    Intel Core i5-9600K Processor Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Kyle, This review has pretty much cemented, IMO, that I doubt we are going to see any serious gains IPC for gaming for quite a while. It seems the drive is to optimize uses cases where "more cores is better" scenarios. That is what pays your bills the best. In that same regards...

    NYC Politician Wants to Ban Cashless Restaurants

    A) You are advocating tax evasion B) Your ignorance of being pushed into a higher tax bracket wand what it means is quite telling.

    NYC Politician Wants to Ban Cashless Restaurants

    Because people with cards spend more than that 2% far....more like 20% on average. Second, cash is a risk for robbery. If you have ZERO cash then the visibility of your store getting robbed goes WAY down. This is probably an insurance consideration as well. There are other...

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    I do not care about "loot boxes" in a strict sense. Pay something to get something that is completely defined is okay by me. Pay $7 to get player X in some game...fine. Pay $8 to have an advantage over player ...fine. At least then I understand the game and the value/costs. What bugs the...
