    Teac AI-101DA + Orb Audio > 7.1 HDMI Surround Sound

    I just started having this exact problem with mine this week (had mine since June). Leaving the knob turned all the way down and using the remote instead helps prevent getting my ears blasted out, but yeah it is unusable until fixed. Currently looking in to that 1 year warranty before it's too...

    iPhone 6S Plus Vs. Galaxy Note 5 Speed Test

    Ah, the age-old fandroid argument that iPhone hardware is inferior due to lower clock speeds/less cores. Magically, iPhones somehow manage to keep up in benchmarks with this "superior" hardware, therefore the benchmarks should be thrown in the trash. For fandroid to be logically consistent...

    YouTube Stars Blindsided By Nintendo's Ad Revenue Grab

    Flop console plus overpriced gaming portable plus smartphones plus Nintendo moving to make games for smartphones equals the beginning of the end for Nintendo as a hardware company. Back on topic, Nintendo is evil as fuck for doing this and I hate that they get a free pass from their...

    Refurb SteelSeries 6GV2 Mechanical Keyboard - $45

    This is a mind-blowing deal on a great keyboard. It has near-zero bells or whistles and that's what I like about it. No software to install and it comes with a USB to PS/2 adapter so you can use it like it was intended. I love that there's no bloatware needed for its media keys to work, and...

    Uber Driver Gropes Passenger

    This^ As a driver for a ridesharing company myself, I constantly hear how people (yes women too) feel way more comfortable and safe in a ridesharing car than a taxi. I get horror stories all the time about smoking cabbies that don't stop when their riders request it, taxi drivers driving sick...

    Honest Apple review

    As a former Apple laptop owner of many years, I couldn't agree more. Modern Apple laptops (even the MBPros) are slowly becoming iPads with keyboards. Now, that's not necessarily a bad thing, but I want a GPU in my laptop and I don't think my only option should be to drop $2000.

    Get Battlefield 3 For Free

    This is what I was thinking. Origin's login system is definitely a huge pain, but if you're enough of a PC user to be posting on these forums... You should probably be proficient in keeping your passwords straight.

    Get Battlefield 3 For Free

    I don't understand this mentality. No one forces you to have all 10 of them running simultaneously. If you must have Steam open to speak to friends while playing a game on another service I seriously doubt your PC is potato enough to be strained by 2 programs.

    Get Battlefield 3 For Free

    If you hated Steam for all the ways that it could have panned out to be bad, and now hate Origin to the point that the thought of even installing it in order to get a free game turns your stomach... You might be a complete hypocrite. I would make the argument that if you DO log in to Origin and...

    BenQ XL2420TE Picture Problems

    It's actually impressive how bad that is. I'm no expert but I think you've got a defective one. Assuming the monitor's drivers are installed, your OS is running 32 bit color/set to 144hz in the OS/GPU driver settings and you've eliminated bad cables as a possibility I'd send it in for replacement.

    More People Watch Netflix Than Cable

    This is what happens when you give people the opportunity to choose what they want to watch instead of selling only 50-5000 channel packages and charging them for what they don't want, complete with ads. I'm looking forward to the day that the internet kills cable TV. Adapt or die, cable...

    TV Contributes More to Obesity Than Computers And Video Games

    Don't forget though, if you play videogames all day you're still really anti-social and probably going to murder someday. If you watch TV all day you're still a normal, non-violent person with friends. So TV still has that going for it.

    Ubisoft Wants A Better Relationship With PC Gamers
