    Three-Quarters of Americans “Afraid” to Ride in a Self-Driving Vehicle

    The core difference being that in one the driver has control over the vehicle — so if he fucks up, he is at fault — in the other he has no control. THIS is what self-driving cars are (and why people hate them):

    Bad News for Microsoft: Windows 10 Loses Market Share Again

    I've recently looked over this, and as long as you have IOMMU and set it up correctly it should be possible to get 95%+ performance on pass-through. Here's one guide, plenty more on the internet: https://bufferoverflow.io/gpu-passthrough/

    System Shock Early Pre-Alpha Trailer

    Most likely because they have no understanding of the original System Shock (I even managed to fuck up and call it an RPFPS, when I meant RPA or "Roleplaying Action" — FPS is so closely tied to action these days), merely trying to capitalise on nostalgia. Anyone remember Syndicate? While I...

    System Shock Early Pre-Alpha Trailer

    You are talking about two different houses: Doom is a first-person shooter (FPS), while System Shock is roleplaying action (RPA; not RPFPS as I wrongly wrote).

    Large Hadron Collider Disproves the Existence of Ghosts, British Professor Claims

    It's too easy to fake pixels in 4K. As we all know, you can tell by the pixels... which means that the more pixels there are, the easier it is to tell.

    Qualcomm: Future Smartphone Screens Will Push Resolutions to “6K, 8K, and Beyond”

    Come on guys, they need some way of milking the stone! What else are they supposed to do? Planned obsolescence can only get them so much, they need new and innovative ways to "apply axial torsion to the total aggregate of applicative agents". I mean seriously, are you honestly saying that 640K...

    Google Launches Robo-Tool to Flag Hate Speech Online

    Just because someone writes something, doesn't mean you have to read it. Why do people not understand this? Are you TRYING to be as obtuse as possible?

    Google Launches Robo-Tool to Flag Hate Speech Online

    I couldn't agree more! Just because something is communicative (the internet) that does mean that it is social or that it is a community. Very big warning sign when someone tries to conflate those concepts.

    Gabe Newell Is Comfortable with VR Being a Complete Failure

    It's even more niche than that, it's aimed squarely at hardcore VR enthusiasts. VR brings nothing to hardcore gaming, it's just a silly gimmick that costs an arm and a leg.
