    McAfee’s Everykey Can Unlock Your Phone, Accounts, Doors, And More

    Sure, centralizing security in the hands of the everykey people introduces the potential for backdoors. But I still think this is safer than the majority of the average person using simple-to-guess passwords.

    Titanfall - Beta, anyone got in?

    Any ideas if the PC vs Xbone versions play significantly different? With all the hype of the cloud gaming of the Xbone, I'm sure the devs had time to optimze this game for it.

    Opinions on selling 7970 CF

    Sorry I meant an R290. I'm asking because if I can conservatively sell the 7970s for about 250 on Ebay, it seems like I'd have to shell out another 250-300 for the R290s from their leaked prices on newegg.

    Opinions on selling 7970 CF

    Currently still running strong on my reference 7970s from Jan 2012. I was wondering if people here are rushing to sell their 7900 series of gpus now as the prices on Ebay have dropped quite a bit already. Would the opinion here be that a single R290 will provide a consistently better...

    How can nvidia compete against mantle amd cards?

    Most major PC games are on all consoles as well, so in theory Mantle will be used by default. The same can't be said for Nvidia's future Mantle-clone.
