    Used hardware prices not impacted by new launches?

    Intel does not like to drop their prices. Up until Ryzen 3rd Gen, they have not had the competition to force them to either. But I was just reading an article this morning about Ryzen 3rd Gen out selling Intel 4 to 1. But I still wouldn't hold my breath on Intel dropping prices. We are not...

    Help me upgrade from my Celeron

    Are you ok going to a Ryzen? You could get a R3 1200 and a B450 Mb for about 140. Cheaper if you live near a microcenter. That would give you a much better upgrade path and the 1200 would crush the Celeron.

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    I agree with most of what you said in this post. But were not talking about the government violating our 1st amendment rights. We are talking about censorship from private company's. Company's shouldn't be able to solicit your content(Make Money off it), then have immunity from it and then be...

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    MarkVI's post is doing real harm to me, just look at the poor readers of [H] and the harassment of your post. Should all the readers have to suffer from your speech? Time to ban MarkVI....../S This is the rabbit hole this goes down with your logic. If we keep going down this road we could soon...

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    What we need is a change to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, that requires the businesses immunity to be contingent on non-censorship. They would only be able to remove content that is illegal.

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    I would be all for making all drugs legal if drug users would stipulate to these concessions: -Drugs could only be used in your own home, no public use. - Selling drugs outside of what ever is regulated from the government his a large prison sentence starting at 25 years. - Any Crime...

    Mobile phone screen protector

    I have used a lot of the SuperSheildz brand glass screen protectors from amazon. They fit great and I have had minimal issues with them and they are very economical. So even if you have an issue just pull it off and slap on a new one. Glass screen protectors defiantly feel better to me and seem...

    Unable to change product key in W10 1809

    Windows saves a signature of your hardware when you activate. If you reinstall with the same hardware and no major changes then when it gets internet access it will reach out and check the activation servers. If your signature matches then it will automatically activate windows. If you want to...

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Are you being obtuse? If they had to produce a different battery that had smaller range then it would increase production costs vs just limiting range in software. Furthermore, production costs are never static. Cost of materials fluctuates, payroll changes, utilities change.

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    This is a very strange way to look at this, while I respect your opinion. It does not make logical sense to me. They produced the standard model first, they are not changing the price for it. They are just adding a new cheaper version with less range. By that same logic you would expect...

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Has nothing to do with fanboy"ism". You are leaving out a key point, that they are going to sell the reduced range model at a reduced cost to the consumer. They are not doing away with the full range model. If a consumer makes a choice and decided they do not need the extra range and would...

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

If they make a new battery type that has a limited range they will incure new production costs Whereas if they software limit the range the cost would...

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Your looking at it totally wrong. The reason they are doing this in this way is due to production costs. If they were to build another battery pack with less range, they would have to make a new production line to produce those batteries(Or make massive changes to their existing line) that...

    San Francisco Passes Proposition C Also Known as the "Homeless Tax"

    Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm Deal Extended for Three Years

    RGB 5050 LED Strips for lighting Home Theater speakers to look like AMC Prime.

    What about a recessed wall plate or a brushed wall plate? You could mount the box directly behind the LED connetor and that would allow the slack to slip back into the wall. If you wanted to take the speaker down you could just lift it up with the slack that you leave and then detach it...

    Twitter Hires Academics to End Combative Conversations on the Platform

    Yep they are just going to farm out the culling of free speech to ultra left wing groups, so they can still claim "hey we are un-biased, we are taking all of this input in form outside sources." But once you look at the sources they are using you find that they are radical left wing groups that...

    SpaceX Nabs $130 Million to Launch an Air Force Satellite With Falcon Heavy

    LoL, it just goes to show the levels of buricratic incompetence. They refused to use spaceX's payload adapter because they didn't trust it. Then awarded that part of the launch to Northrop with an open check and they still fumbled. But knowing our government I'm sure the conversation is going...

    Old Router, DDW-RT, and new Interfaces

    I am in the same mindset as thebufenator, except I think you should go with Ubiquity Unifi. It will be 100% better than any consumer grade firewall/router/wifi that you can buy. And if you have an old computer to run the controller software on you can get a gateway and a AP-Lite for 200 dollars...

    Why am I paying for 200Mb, and only capping around 100? There is a difference between "Giga"(bit) and "Mega"(byte) and "Mega"(bit) have you ran any tests that show your internet speed is not what is advertised? ignoring that isp's say you get "up to" those speeds.

    China Plans Hypersonic Jet That Can Fly Anywhere in the World in Three Hours

    If they hold a press conference or "publish a paper" or brag about the capabilities of something like this it is 100% propaganda. Just think, if they had this capability in an aircraft the military/government would be all over it for their uses and it would be classified at the highest levels.
