    911 Calls Raise Concerns Over Amazon Working Conditions

    People in the 50s used to say that the new generation has it much easier and shouldn’t complain. People in the 80s said that the new generation didn’t have to work as hard, just smarter People now days complaining about the new generation are just doing the same thing all those people did in...

    Dead or Alive 6 Hasn't Toned Down the Sexualization, It's Just Tucked It Away

    Honestly doa2 was one of my favorite fighting games but the later games were so fanservice-y that it just completely turned me off of the series.

    Woman Sues T-Mobile after Employees Allegedly Snoop on Racy Private Video

    T-Mobile will need to do some groveling and pay her a hefty sum of money to settle. The employees will likely get criminal charges, good luck fighting that one. T-Mobile ain’t gonna help them there. No one should have to have their privacy violated even if it’s for a trade in where customers...

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

    Honestly I’m usually ok with taxing something to actually build and expand net access to rural areas, but being that AT&T brought this up I say fuck them, just out of spite. The rural areas should be incentivized to build their own network access and just charge a usage fee to the provider...

    Chinese Researchers Claim to Have the World's First Genetically Edited Babies

    iunderstoodthatreference.jpg Honestly I'm on board with genetically engineered babies, as long as it's for health issues (resistance to viruses, muscular dystrophy, alzheimer's, etc) and not for comestic purposes (ie. giving a child blue eyes, or white skin, being skinny, etc). Cloning would...

    Tesla Secures Land for $2 Billion China Gigafactory

    From what I’ve read Teslas don’t have the greatest quality anyway, so it might actually be an improvement.

    Here Is an Early Build of the "Beyond the Baltic Sea" DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2

    I have more of an issue of how quickly that truck stopped at the toll booth. Thing stopped like a mid-sized sedan.

    Principled Technologies Deny Bias in Recent Intel vs. AMD Testing Controversy

    I think Steve tried too hard to put on the kid gloves for this. I like that he did his best to remain professional and unaggressive when the guy said "we've been doing this longer than you've been alive" -- that kind of condescending shit has no place in there when the guy can't answer most...

    "Sex Robot Brothel" Blocked by Houston Government

    I really don't think this has much to do with feminism or swj's -- most of them actually advocate for regulating and legalizing the sex industry as it actually *empowers* women. I think this is just a case of stupidity at best.

    California Bans Weak Login Credentials

    I wonder what this will mean for the medical industry. There are so many places where passwords are weak at best (some don’t have any) and one could potentially access patient info... HIPAA doesn’t care because they rather let someone fuck up and then drag them through the coals rather than...

    Robocall Firm Is Facing a $37.5 Million Fine from FCC for Spoofing Consumer Numbers

    This company is in my town - Tucson. It's all over the local news, and I'm damn happy that they're having a fine that steep. Now if only they would be willing to enforce the rules on ISPs and other companies that clearly deserve it...

    Solar Roadways Aren't Worth the Investment

    At least it's an experiment that was relatively small in scale and turned out it didn't work. That's just how things are - trial and error. I echo whoever said that seeing solar panels in parking areas would be great. And at least here in the US, we have so much open land in some areas that it...

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    I don't think you understand how sexual harassment works. What you're describing is toxic behavior, not sexual harassment.

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    That's why you have logs and why the report button exists. It's no different than what's going on now -- just that people will actually be held accountable for their actions. We'll see. I think it's a step in the right direction and will actually make people think twice before being a total...

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    Right, you report + block and they would have the face the consequences for their actions. Probably given a fine they have to pay, or if they do it often enough, more serious consequences. Plus, if their real name or unique number (ss# or something) is attached to the account, then that would...

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    So... You're confirming that sexual harassment does happen to men. Good for you that you laughed, I guess? What if that happened to your daughter or wife? or mom? Would that be your same reaction -- would you expect her to laugh it off? Or would you get mad and want justice? Then again, I...

    Except it's not and sexual harassment also happens to men.

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    Blizzard has done a decent job at curving the worst of it, their bans are pretty swift and it makes them money too since you'd just have to buy another copy of the game. But while it's in the right direction, it only alleviates part of the symptom and only temporarily. The problem is still just...

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    What's wrong with that? The private sector certainly can't do shit about it, and what they do is often not enough, nor is it a deterrent. Logs and chat recordings can be kept and thanks to compression, it wouldn't take that much space. In fact, the fines could be used for said maintenance and...

    South Korea May Make Sexual Harassment in Online Games Punishable by Law

    I'm totally ok with this. I wouldn't make punishment jail time -- a fine that just goes up every time you do it will be enough. Also start attaching a person's real name to an account that's visible to moderation and not the players.

    NVIDIA’s RTX Speed Claims “Fall Short,” Ray Tracing Merely “Hype”

    Thank god I am happy with my 1080ti right now, because I sure as shit don't wanna get this card when it comes out. I will have to skip a few generations with nVidia until this new tech matures. And that price lol

    Speedier Broadband Standards? Pai’s FCC Says 25Mbps Is Fast Enough

    I mean, this is specifically what the guy was brought in for. To fuck everything up. The President wants to make sure that when he leaves it will be a massive pile of flaming shit for the next administration. Dude’s just doing what he was asked to do.

    Here’s Elon Musk’s “Submarine” for Rescuing Trapped Thailand Kids

    While I think it's awesome that Elon is helping with what he can (regardless of reasons), I can't imagine having to be in that tiny cylinder. I'm not even claustrophobic and just the idea of having to get in there makes me nope out of there like crazy. Hopefully there will be other uses for this...

    China to go Full Dystopia With Mandatory Vehicle RFID Chips in 2019

    Given how there apparently seem to be so many terrible accidents happening in China -- kids being ran over, even -- I am ok with the RFID thing. Having said that, I don't know how reliable it would be given RFID can fail so much from what I've seen..

    Don't Expect New GeForce GPU for a Long Time

    I only buy a new card once every 3-4 years anyway, I’m perfectly happy with waiting for a substantial upgrade instead of having all these smaller incremental ones. Should also give AMD some time to catch up.

    Rumor: Sony Could Be Considering a PlayStation Classic

    No thanks. I got my fill of playing ps1 games on my 1st gen ps3. Then I went to emulation. (S)NES, genesis games coming back are fine because they don’t need to age well - the graphics and gameplay are simple enough.

    New iPhone Leak “Confirms” Apple’s Radical Design

    I'm not an Apple hater by any means -- I love the OS from the get go unlike Android. While Android is more customizeable (sp?), it's also a much bigger pain in the ass. iOS is a closed sandbox, but it's a phone; I don't need it to be like a PC or laptop. What I don't like is how Apple has been...

    New iPhone Leak “Confirms” Apple’s Radical Design

    The 8plus so far has been a disappointment for me. And any phone that no longer uses a fingerprint reader is no longer a phone I plan to purchase. If this phone follows that trend, I will go android for my next phone in a year or two.

    Overwatch Pink Mercy Skin Raises Almost $10 Million for Breast Cancer Research

    I work in the cancer research industry and I bought this skin. If I had a 2nd account I would have bought it for it too. There’s a lot of charities where not a lot of money goes into actual research but this one is pretty good. If you’re ever wondering about a charity go here (I currently have...

    Classic NES Makes its Way Back Again

    Mehhhh. If I want a nostalgia shot there’s always emulators. I have my PS4 co troller with a Bluetooth adapter on my pc so I can play just fine if I want to. But as others mentioned, they should just release the games on their virtual console for like a buck.

    UK Shops to Sell “Porn Pass” Access Code to Allow Adults to Visit X-rated Sites

    I mean, yeah some form of age verification would be great, but it should be an option in ISP's if we want to allow porn or not. Or at least provide more options for parents to set up filtering to make it safer for children. The whole getting a pass thing is just lol. But, I mean... I dunno. I...

    NVIDIA Pulling Plug on GPP

    The last AMD product I purchased was....Well, the Athlon XP. I have not purchased any AMD product since, and certainly none of their video cards because I’ve felt Nvidia and Intel products to be superior. I have also encouraged people here that they should but the better product for their PC and...

    NVIDIA Pulling Plug on GPP

    Making a statement with your wallet is absolutely the best way to have your voice heard, but it’s also ok to decide to buy a card from nvidia. Microsoft, Intel, etc have also committed many anticompetitive actions, some of it being outright illegal but it’s still ok to purchase their product...
