    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    Yep! And the school district would loose out on $2K/mo and get crap coverage! Seriously, having a cell tower on campus is probably doing a ton of good for those kids, but dumb parents are going to kick their own kids in the teeth removing it.

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    It is a plain old 4G tower. I bet these same parents have WiFi and use BlueTooth... for goodness sake, this is a grieving parent grasping at straws. I feel for them, I would be very upset if my kids came down with cancer... but I would be demanding tests of the air and water in and around the...

    BioWare Warns Hostile Replies Make Developers Less Likely to Engage

    I have 2 thoughts on this; 1) If you keep releasing bad games, and games that do not align with what a studio is know for (choose your own adventure RPGs), then the fans tend to get upset... 2) You mean to say that they have the developers stopping from development to respond to posts? This is...

    Netflix Cancels The Punisher And Jessica Jones

    You are not wrong; I have my own media server with the stuff I watch, and Netflix's kid selection is meh. We will probably move to Disney's service when it becomes available... I am part of the problem.

    Netflix Cancels The Punisher And Jessica Jones

    In a move that suprises absolutely nobody. Disney is going to be releasing their own streaming service and will be making their own content for that going forward using these characters. Hopefully they do as good a job as Netflix has done. Other than 'The Defenders' the rest of the shows have...

    YouTube Is Trying to Prevent Angry Mobs from Abusing "Dislike" Button

    How much of this was the hate for their rewind video (which I haven't watched yet... the algorithm knows I wont like it lol), and how much of this is CBS paying them to make it harder for us to abuse them when they inflict bad STDs on our viewing platform of choice?

    Anthem Demo a "Clusterf*ck": Connection Errors, Loading Issues, and More

    How is this a problem? Like, not just for EA, but for anyone. Online games have been a thing for 20+ years. And just because it is a 'new style of play' (which is also BS) does not change the fact that it is clients logging into a database server... this is something that every major...

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    I agree about the agenda thing... Star Trek has always been 'wildly liberal' and about breaking down social norms and considering other points of view. Having a few SJW characters is hardly the most groundbreaking thing they have ever done. I mean... OG Star Trek had a Russian and a black...

    Wendell Answers Questions About AMD Threadripper Regression Testing

    I love Wendell! Its a shame his co-hosts put me off of watching L1 Techs normal content. But every once in a while they let him nerd out and we get some good info!

    Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Lays Out the Company's Vision for Its "Netflix for Games"

    I mean... MS and their track record for stores will be a great selling point on this. most of the win8 titles I purchased through the store are no longer available. Not because my hardware has changed, or because the developer pulled the title, but because MS decided to remove 'backwards...

    California Lawmaker Wants to Move toward E-receipts

    California Lawmaker Wants to Move toward E-receipts

    Exactly! And I buy lots of stuff that simply isn't for me. I don't want them tracking all of that data and messing up what adverts get sent my way. Maybe we need to use one of those dating phone numbers at registers like women use on creepy guys... actually, this sounds rather fun. I am going...

    California Lawmaker Wants to Move toward E-receipts

    This is a terrible idea. Asking to give you an e-receipt is to track customer data, not a way to save trees, and all major retailers already do this. I would rather have no receipt, than an emailed receipt. I would much rather have a better solution of sending the receipt to my bank, and have...

    Ohio Man Says iPhone XS Max Caught Fire and Exploded in His Pocket

    This was my first thought too... You don't put phones in your back pocket! At the very least you will crack your screen, and if it really folds over then it would be no surprise that it could puncture the battery and cause a fire!

    Memory Prices Are Coming Back Down to Earth

    Ya, the current prices still seem outrageous to me. ~2 years ago I bought 16GB of DDR3 for $75. DDR4 isn't much better, so I am not sure why $200 for 16GB is something to be happy about.

    NVIDIA Leads the Race to the Bottom As Its Stock Takes a 54% Hit in 4Q18

    Soooo... I am confused by this. Yes, the bubble on crypto currency has popped, but that is such a small part of what nVidia does. I mean, the reason for the extreme prices of cards was because nVidia was not making consumer GPUs due to professional processing demand for AI research and self...

    Intel Blasts Qualcomm's Litigious Practices

    Intel is just annoyed that they didn't think of this first, and are not in a position to do much of anything with phones with their weak radios and power hungry 60+nm CPUs. If Intel was currently relevant, they would also be suing everyone instead of focusing on playing catchup.

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    The truly ironic thing here is that 8K's usefulness is for just about everything except video! But here are some legit reasons for 8K, even on smallish screens: 1) Textures. We have had life-like color for a while now, and with HDR we are beginning to see life-like contrast. What we have never...

    Credit Card Chips Fail to Halt Fraud, Survey Says

    Well dua. CCs are not required to be present for most translations. Even when a card is present, it rarely requires a pin. Translations online don't require chip or pin. So... if we are not using the technology that is there to protect us, then why would we expect it to solve anything? Also...

    Windows 10 Version 1809 Plagued by Another Data Loss Issue

    Oh man... this makes sooo much sense now! I have been doing lots of large file transfers at work, which sometimes fail for various reasons (I mean... there is a reason we are moving stuff off this server). But typically when transfers failed I could just transfer again, and tell it to skip when...

    Overtime Now Optional at Rockstar Studio after Allegations of "100-Hour Weeks"

    Sure it is optional... but don't expect to be re-hired on the next project though. I mean... it is called 'crunch time' for a reason, and there is also a reason why a lot of these people are not paid much. This OT is built into the budget. A studio builds up, hits crunch where people actually...

    IBM Files JEDI Protest

    10 years sounds like a long time... but then again this is the same organization requesting submissions via DVD... not sure I have used a DVD player in almost 10 years...
