    iPhone 12 Won't Include Charger Or EarPods In Box

    Don't really care about the headphones. I've never used a pair that came with any phone I've ever purchased. The charger I can see people being miffed about.

    Need a new Inexpensive wireless mouse?

    Old thread and I am sure you bought something by now, but I use a Logitech G602 wireless on several machines. I wish it was rechargeable but for around $40 they are awesome.

    Cities protesting 5g

    Why would anyone want a 5g connected light bulb or similar device? The sales pitch on these things sounds like one of those old 50's Home of the Future videos. Does it cause cancer? Maybe, maybe not. The cell carriers have to try and remain relevant. They adopt new services so you have to buy...

    What used to be in your wallet?

    Meh. I'd be worried if all of my info wasn't out there from all the other data leaks. Who are these people after? Between all of the companies that have had data breaches, everyone's info is out there now. Sounds to me like the whole system can no longer be trusted, needs to be scrapped and a...

    Prominent tech reporter charged by the FBI in connection with attempting to solicit sex with minors.

    Not sure if the charges will stick or not. He did show up. There was a local guy here caught up in some stuff involving a supposed 16, almost 17 year old girl. He never showed up to the meeting place though. Charges were dropped in that case, and he is suing the state for it. None the less his...

    AMD to Simultaneously Launch 3rd Gen Ryzen and Unveil Radeon "Navi" This June

    Hopefully they use the same socket and I can upgrade to a 3700X from the 1700X. Not that I have any real reason to but who needs a reason?

    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    Meh, I still have customers with WinXP, 95, DOS, you name it. Most of it is for manufacturing equipment that is hundreds of millions to replace. At least once a month I see an old C2D laptop or desktop with XP on it that has bad caps or a bad hdd that the customer wants repaired. We don't fix...

    New Fan Recommendations

    I would have to order something, or drive at least 90 miles to get to a store that sells stuff like that. I do have a Micro Center in St. Louis, but I am not about to make a 5hr round trip for $40 in fans. I think I'll order a few of the Noctura's A12's and a fan controller. Thanks all!

    New Fan Recommendations

    I finally build a new system last week and the fans I have are annoying. I want something quiet that will work well with my setup. Ryzen 7 1700X Corsair Hydro H55 Gigabyte B450M DS3H Mushkin 250GB NVME M.2 SSD GeIL Evo Potenza (2x 8GB) RX 570 4GB I had some Corsair fans that are just too loud...

    FDA Chief Threatens to Take E-cigarettes off the Market

    I have yet to see one of these mythical "Teen Advertisements" they are talking about. The real problem is that cigarettes are taxed to the hilt. State/Fed need some more cash, toss another sin tax on! They want to classify e-cigs as a tobacco product even if their isn't any in it so they can get...

    Panel Makers to Shift Focus to 8K LCD in 2019

    If that drops the price of 4k panels then I am all for it. I'm not much of an early adopter anyway, I let others beta test.

    Nintendo Switch Outsells All Other Current Generation Consoles

    Thought about getting the kids one for Christmas, but I passed on it as they seldom play the PS3, XBox One, or Wii anymore. They want a Wii U for Mario Maker, even though they have it on the DS. They are on their DS's or tablets all the time.

    Apple Turns Its Back on Customers and NVIDIA with macOS Mojave

    Which machine can you actually put a GPU in that is supported by this OS? Sounds like this is aimed more at the Hackintosh community than anything else.

    Town Rejects Comcast and Chooses to Build Its Own Broadband Network

    We use to have a great municipal cable system. The city sold it to a company who provided good service as well. Then that company sold to another provider and they suck ass. I'm sure someone else will buy it in the next 4-5 years.

    NYC Politician Wants to Ban Cashless Restaurants

    Have any of you paid cash for anything in a store recently? A lot of these people can't count back change if the register doesn't tell them how many nickles to give you. Is he going to make the food carts take cards because they are cash only. Make it easier for the elites to slum it up from...

    Windows 10 19H1: All the Changes We Know So Far

    I wonder how many people actually use the new features that are added. Personally the only thing I used in 1809 was the dark theme. The other crap I ignored like 99.9999% of my customers did.

    The Supreme Court Has Refused to Vacate Net Neutrality Ruling by Lower Court

    You mean the thing they have been free to do for 20+ years and have never done? I remember the days when everyone screamed Keep the government away from the internet!! Now all of a sudden you’re screaming for regulation. You’re wanting a solution to a nonexistent problem. Peering agreements have...

    Less red tape and regulation. Seems like something they want to stay away from to me. As a former business owner, the less government involvement the better.

    Blizzard Faces Hellish Backlash after BlizzCon Diablo Mobile Reveal

    I'm not against FPS games, I played plenty of them back in the day. Doom, Duke Nukem, RoTT, all the way to Medal of Honor, UT2k4 and so on. LAN parties were a lot more fun. No lag, you could throw something at your friend who got you with a cheap kill, those kinds of things. Not to mention when...

    Blizzard Faces Hellish Backlash after BlizzCon Diablo Mobile Reveal

    All the FPS games and DLC pushed me out years ago. Buy a $70 game, get half of it, buy a "season pass" for $20, also known as "the rest of the damn game". It has just gotten to stupid levels.

    Macs Could Jump to ARM in 2020

    I'm sure they will still be happy to sell you a $4,000 Mac Pro that is only 4 years out of date if you need to do any real work and like OS X. I could see them having an ARM notebook for the people who's primary application is Chrome but hate their money.

    Amazon Posts Environmental Footage from Their MMO

    You would control a real life robot in their factory fulfilling orders for them AND be paying them for it! Seems like a way to lower labor costs. You log out and the next person who logs in gets your "quest" to retrieve the sacred shoes of Nike from the Shelf of Doom!

    Google Announces New Data Controls and the Closing of Google+ After Security Lapse

    It was probably popular in some South American countries like the other social networking site they had. The name escapes me and I am too lazy to look it up.
