    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    This isn't a valid question. If we were soothsayers, we'd all have won the lottery by now. But I'll go first, the next update will break something in Windows 10. :p

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Well the social media blowback is real and has real consequences on people's lives. So I don't think it's purely assumptions. You and me both except I never had FB. Doesn't mean any opportunities have been lost because we either don't have one. Or if we did, passed because someone's views...

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Hah! That's the best part! It's not mandatory. I wonder how many opportunities I've been passed on because I had no social profiles. It can be just as bad and impossible to prove.

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Christ you two are literal. I said not AS OVERT, but you two missed that part. About being judged, are you kidding me? Have you seen the blackface blowback? Think anyone's not been hired because of some FB post of them passed out drunk? It's already here. Doesn't matter if your aware of it.

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    ???? It's already here for the most part. Social media is everyone's 'credit score.' Not as overt as China's but folks are judged nonetheless.

    Here Is the Path of Exile: Synthesis Official Trailer

    Very much feel the same way, but I love the game and will probably play it until I can't any longer. I do like all of the updates that can force a respec, but I get what your saying. And, I'm sure I'll never understand all of the ins and outs of the specs, gems, and equipment. But it's so fun...

    Cloud Imperium Games Spent $4M a Month in 2017 Developing Star Citizen

    RGB LED SSDs are Good for Gaming

    Maybe RGB hate is more marketing fail then a trend that some people just don't like. I've got plenty of RGB that I like, but that video right there it cringey.

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    Yes, I know, exaggeration. Point remains, defective product, bans paying customers. VAC Bans are different because typically someone's using third party software for an exploit. This is built-in banning. Guess we'll have to disagree.

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    Sure, but it's also no different than a company releasing a glitchy product then banning paid customers. "Sorry the Takata airbag killed your family, but it's glitchy so we'll take your license. Kthxbye!" I think this falls squarely on Bethesda to fix and fix quickly. Acceptance of this from a...

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    I can't agree. They put out a defective product. They should pay those people that found the glitch, fix it and move on. They're effectively banning paid customers for a broken product. Bad on Bethesda.

    Future Windows 10 Builds Will Reserve Storage and Tabulate It

    WTF is a "low storage solution?" If your low on storage, it's not a 'solution.' And the OS should know that before it goes and tries to install any more Candy Crush.

    Windows 10 Web Market Share Overtakes Windows 7

    If 10 was so superior, maybe it wouldn't have taken as long? BTW, tell me where to toggle off the telemetry. Can I toggle off updates, as in permanently? I didn't think so. I think your thinking the quick and easy toggling of yourself carries in 10 but sadly it does not. :(

    FCC Panel Suggests Taxing Business Internet Usage to Pay for Rural Broadband

    TLDR but from what I gather isn't likely to pass. But the mere mention of it now makes it feel like it'll be okay 5 years from now. That's how data caps worked. Blasphemy today; reality tomorrow.

    Town Rejects Comcast and Chooses to Build Its Own Broadband Network

    Yes, yes, we can play slap tickle all we want and throw out studies both ways, but I still don't believe it's nearly as bad as the Penn Law study suggests. But I do believe unfettered monopolies, Comcast I'm looking at you, do more damage...

    Is the Cost of a Cable Box Really Too Darn High?

    I think I was offered 90 days or 6 months. I forgot, might have even been a year, but it was over when they basically said, 'we're going to bend you over even more for hardware!' Yea, got to love their 'promotional' periods.

    Is the Cost of a Cable Box Really Too Darn High?

    This actually was the straw breaking my coax. I had Cox, basically, analog, coming from the street in to the TV with no box or other conversion. The TV did the 'decoding' as I didn't have any pay channels. When they mandated the box and required rental fee, I cancelled. It wasn't about the...
