    Wrap isn't going to protect from a drop, just buy a case IMO.

    'NBA 2K21' Will Cost $70 USD for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Is this the new normal?

    The most expensive games produced appear to be "free" games that offer in-game advantage for cash. Just look at games like World of Tanks and the like, and you see people dropping $100+ every few months, or worse Star Citizen where instead of $60 or $70 for game, they fund the idea of a game...

    MSI President and CEO Sheng-Chang Chiang Has Died

    Unlike our CIA, they don't bother with the subtlety of a heart-attack gun, as they actually don't mind everyone knowing its them. Well, she is "Chinese ethnicity" you could say, since they are the same race after all having literally come from China. Even Hongkongers (Hongkies?) hate...

    Thanks to Apple Your next BMW Might Only Have Heated Seats for 3 Months

    Future Facebook Market ad: 2021 BMW for sale, 65K miles, may have ventilated and heated seats, may have adaptive cruise control, may have 360o parking camera. Device locked to Texas. Not jailbroken.

    Man, I miss power supply deals

    I keep reusing power supplies to the point I'm afraid to check how ancient some of them are. I just haven't been convinced that there's been any breakthroughs in PSU tech, and they seem to last forever. Personally, I also never touch rebates on principle. Half the time I end up missing a...

    Do we really want our robots to have consciousness?

    Just program them with write-protected robot guilt and make them feel ashamed of their mechanical privilege. Self-preservation is a trait that most living things have only because its programmed in to their DNA, because those that lacked it didn't survive to pass on their genes. No reason that...

    US successfully tests a Laser Weapon that can Destroy Aircraft Mid-Flight

    It was brought up that the only reason the US has friends is because we bribe them with gifts like naval lazerbeemz, and I brought up that its not working because they just take the billions and still just do whatever is best for themselves anyway and aren't real allies, and one of the examples...

    US successfully tests a Laser Weapon that can Destroy Aircraft Mid-Flight

    You could say the same thing about Japanese and Korean cars, and they used the massive savings on R&D to invest into manufacturing and have no problem producing the same tech now. Heck, the Koreans recently scalped BMW engineers to develop their cars, which I'm still not clear how they got...

    US successfully tests a Laser Weapon that can Destroy Aircraft Mid-Flight

    If they can steal and reproduce all our other tech, and they make almost everything that we consume in the US, why would they not be able to build this? If anything, they have more manufacturing capability than the US if entering into a new arms race. "Allies"... riight. Most of our so-called...

    US successfully tests a Laser Weapon that can Destroy Aircraft Mid-Flight

    About tree fiddy. You have to question though, what is the point of all the spending? We'll spend billions on new technology, but then the Chinese spies will have it stolen in a month or less, so all you ended up doing is having the world spend more on defense to equalize again which is a bit...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Eye of the beholder, I guess. Her concave face and underbite make my eye twitch though. Some are boob or butt or feet guys, I'm a face guy first and foremost, and I see twenty more attractive faces walking the isles of Walmart any day of the week IMO.

    Brain structure that controls our behavior discovered

    For the same reason that people like watching Gordon Ramsey or The Jerry Springer show. People sometimes like to feel better about themselves by watching someone whose life is a total trainwreck or who are being berated and stressed out so they can think to themselves, "Hey, at least I'm not...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Picard isn't that bad from what I've seen so far, but could have been better. They made some bad casting choices IMO; particularly the main character with the boring always straight-faced Isa Briones that is painful to watch but always on screen, as they even discussed how every minute detail...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Including a lead like DS9 that was generally well liked. But DS9 didn't have this going on every other minute, or the predictable plot twist that the original CIS white male captain is naturally secretly evil and starts MAGA-quoting... that's what you get for trusting white bois, hah! I also...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Star Trek IS whatever the writers have made canon and put in the show though. Roddenberry died ages ago, and Star Trek Voyager happened, but in any case I was referencing even the names of characters but we can leave it at that.

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Exceptions prove the rule, and uncommon intermarriage doesn't mean it has never happened in thousands of years. "Japanese" is an ethnicity and a very obvious measurable genetic cluster with a common culture distinctly different from say the Dutch or Nigerians, but you will find half-white and...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Christianity and Islam are merely religions that seek to actively recruit and evangelize new followers all over the globe. Judaism is an insular tribe or ethnic religion that does quite the opposite. Like the interview with Morgan Freeman where he called Michael Wallace a "white man", Wallace...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Judaism is an ethnicity, not just a religion, and they went out of their way to make the ethnicities really obvious with heavy Russian and Scottish accents and stereotypes galore. And heck in Voyager the super obvious native-american was having religious vision quests practically every other...

    Star Trek will go to Strange New Worlds in new spinoff series

    Going through those list of names producing this show, a quick google result says the first four I bothered checking are all Jewish, most Star Trek actors are Jewish, even the Vulcan salute is secretly Jewish, and yet as far as I know there has never been a Jewish character (by name like...

    Tom Cruise making a movie in space with Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA

    Tom Cruise is like that mean THOT from highschool. You don't have to like her personality or life choices to be entertained watching her jump on a trampoline. Get up on that trampoline and bounce Tom, bounce!

    You guys. The voice acting...it's so bad. =( Trials of Mana

    I can't watch any anime dubbed in English. Some that I've watched before and was entertained by were painfully cringey in English. I'm not sure if this means that the material I'm watching is actually retarded, but I just like hearing Japanese actresses overact, or if the English voice actors...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    [No Longer Available] 5700 XT $349 @ Dell, AE $369

    Isn't that an Nvidia proprietary technology? If so, I thought both of the next gen consoles are to be AMD powered, and games tend to be heavily influenced by that. I'm more concerned with driver complaints on the AMD side, has that all been ironed out by now?

    Gamers Nexus tackles the question: Which is better, liguid or air cooling?

    Passive cooling is bullshit, and not needed when you can use silent slow spinning fans. Liquid is not quieter most of the time (idle) these days, because if comparing apples to applies its often two 120/140mm fans plus a pump vs two 120/140mm fans and no pump. No pump wins.

    Gamers Nexus tackles the question: Which is better, liguid or air cooling?

    The benefit is that the best coolers are still water coolers, particularly if you are talking about brief CPU spikes since the liquid has some thermal capacity and tends to smooth things out, and that they can be oriented in a way that they aren't adding any heat to the rest of the system...

    Boundary, a high-concept space FPS, headed to PS4 and PC in 2020

    Just to clarify, I have an entire room in my house dedicated to VR, no issues with VR in general, but I can only imagine how it would feel flying around the place with no real up or down rapidly twisting, turning, looping, and spinning as is required for fast-action first person shooters.

    Boundary, a high-concept space FPS, headed to PS4 and PC in 2020

    Its like a regular idea, but you have to hold it in your lungs for a full 30 seconds before you exhale, cough violently, and then share the "high concept" with everyone in the drum circle.

    "Trillion Core" Chinese CPU vs. AMD & Intel: ZhaoXin X86 CPU Review ZX-C+ 4701

    Japan and S.Korea transitioned from primarily medieval fishing villages with a feudal government to completely modernized by scalping European engineers, sending their government to European and American universities to be educated, espionage, and reverse engineering, so obviously China is and...

    Remastering "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" with Machine Learning

    STD could have been fantastic, as I actually like the interesting overly stylized artwork and even dug the first three episodes, but they went so "woke" with the straight white male bashing, fat acceptance, masculine women, lgtbtq and so forth that they forgot to actually make a compelling plot...

    “Rick and Morty” Returns May 3rd

    I thought claw and hoarder was pretty good as well, but mostly I just didn't like that it takes so long to get a season out, and then I was really hoping for 10 episodes for that season.

    Samsung to stop (monitor) LCD production - Focuses on quantum dot OLEDs

    Do we really even need to distinguish between monitors and HDTVs now? IMO with HDMI 2.1 spec they've caught up to the point that its really just about screen size, and have no issues using my "TVs" as monitors.

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    You're surely measuring the up to 8GB of cache on that $1000+ RAID card that apparently draws as much power as some GPUs, and as was mentioned is not going to be on sub $100 RAID cards for typical home use making such an investment (cheap RAID card) a waste of time/money/slots unless your mobo...

    From the brink of bankruptcy to a 1,300% stock gain: How this CEO turned around her company.

    If its anything like the companies I've worked for, I'd wager there was also some turnover in the actual engineering team that were working 60+hrs every week and created the new products that were successful and making the company money, and are overjoyed that all of the credit for their...

    I find it interesting that you can offer this advice that you can't seem to take yourself. 6-years and going, and hardware like this has planned obsolescense. You don't seem to understand where you are or what product you're looking at. I keep trying to keep you on topic to understand that...

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    You don't have any. You already cited "personal experience" as if that could at all be valuable with how few systems you likely have built and managed lately, especially if you're already so biased against software RAID to not have likely even used it in the last decade. Software RAID used...
