    Who still uses Skype??

    Are you kidding? I use Skype all the time to video chat with family. I'm not talking about Skype for Business. Skype gets its usage from individuals, not companies. Teams is a business app, mostly. It really sucks compared to Skype when it comes to UI. I use Teams at work, and it's fine...

    So ARM is doing what Nvidia couldn't

    In regards to monopolies (though slightly off-topic), are there any modern motherboards with built-in audio not powered by Realtek? My god, their sound drivers are an absolute mess now that we have "premium" audio solutions like Nahimic from SteelSeries (which is absolute garbage and makes...

    NVIDIA's RTX 4080 Problem: They're Not Selling & MSRP Doesn't Exist

    Windows 12

    Considering all of the sound driver and sound issues in general in Windows 10/11, I can't wait... Realtek audio drivers were so much better back in the day when the entire package was 250MB+ with Realtek Audio Control console bundled with the drivers packed full of features such as "Loudness...

    Complete tweaking guide for Windows 7 SP2+

    Heck yes! And my XP Atom netbook from 2009 still online too using New Moon browser :p Just because it's not officially supported doesn't mean it's inherently a security risk. Plus, it's the latest OS that's going to get targeted the most :p. Reverse security is a thing just like reverse...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    Good! I would develop apps for iOS if I didn't have to pay a ridiculous monthly fee and could distribute my apps from outside the app store and control my own payments and licensing terms. Screw Apple. As it is now, I still hope they die.

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    Meanwhile, I feel like my AMD Ryzen 1700X is the most unstable processor I've ever owned. So many weird problems, and it seems like no one knows why? I even bought a 3900X, but while in use, it just failed on me, and the entire system was hosed. Memtest complained about failing to initialize...

    5g and the weather

    Since our leaders are mainly sociopaths, it's hard to trust anyone. I've dealt with several different sociopaths in positions of power as I have moved through life, so I do honestly believe that yes, people (especially the sociopaths running the world) do not represent our best interests as...

    5g and the weather

    I can't wait to get cancer from 5G! Tough choice. Cancer or slower internet (and 5g not really being that much faster as mentioned earlier in this thread). Cancer! Yay! I love how we actually study effects of new technologies before deploying them... oh wait... nevermind. We don't. We're...

    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    Windows 7 masterpiece UI? Hardly. XP had the best UI. It was so simple, quick, responsive, and easy-to-use. It's been all downhill since XP. What Linux lacks is a GUI file explorer as fast and efficient as Explorer.exe. That, and being able to play all windows games. Once those two things...

    PlayerUnknown Leaves PUBG Development Team

    Which they still didn't fix. Still too much desync. Too bad because if that could be fixed, it would be the best game ever. I think they just released new skins and fixed easy hanging fruit bugs. It's fixed. lmfao

    Firefox 66 to Block Audible Sound from Autoplay Video and Audio by Default

    Terrible for so many reasons. Chrome did it first, and now Firefox wants to follow in its footsteps (as usual - Google sets web standards now, and Mozilla rolls over and says we better do it too). There are so many use-cases where auto play sound and video are legit and valid. Yes, some sites...

    Facebook Employees Panic After Apple Revokes the Company's Enterprise Certificate

    I hate Apple so much. One can't develop apps on iOS without letting them have full control over your licensing / money making system. I understand your app not being listed on the official store, but why can't I develop an app that is installed manually? It's pretty much next to impossible...

    Mozilla CEO: Microsoft's Adoption of Chromium Is "Terrible" for the Web

    As much as I hate IE and Edge (and never use them), at least it was a third option (different engine). The major players are only Firefox and Chrome today. The problem with everyone using the Chrome engine is that Google forces and makes up new standards and restrictions all the time. Apps...

    The Firefox Public Data Report Details Hardware and Browsing Tendencies

    Or you could use Pale Moon which isn't developed by a single kid. And, New Moon (an XP patched version of Pale Moon) is the only modern browser you can still use on XP... like I am right now on my atom netbook (first gen).

    Connecticut DRS Moves to Collect Back-Taxes on Newegg Customers

    Yes, Colorado is very aggressive on this too. If they're going to start playing this game, I'm going to quit buying in general. Screw the economy, and thanks for killing it for us. We now live in a country where it's not worth creating a business, not worth innovating, and not even worth...

    Microsoft Meltdown/Spectre Patch May Bork Athlon Systems

    Spoiled much? If it runs well on older hardware, it will run great on everything else. More people should cater to the lowest common denominator. It's called efficiency which no one seems to care about anymore. I can hardly use a browser these days on my 2009 atom netbook without lagging...

    Intel SPI Driver in Ubuntu 17.10 Release Might Corrupt Your Laptop Bios

    I guess you didn't even read the article in the link you posted. It is a generic catch-all web page with basically a whole lot of nothing on it. I dislike Windows, but come on now, at least post something of relevancy. I guess the people who liked your post didn't read the link you used...

    Former Compiz Developer: Free Software Desktop Might Enter A Dark Age [editorial]

    Unfortunately, in Windows, we don't have any desktop environment choices. All we have is that crappy bland 1980s theme in Windows 10. XP and 7 were so much nicer... Microsoft has always sucked when it comes to third party themes. They could support and embrace it, but instead, they just...

    Windows XP Hard To Kill, Continues To Gain Market Share

    Using XP here on my 2009 atom 10" netbook. Works great with 2GB RAM and a SSD. Still going strong in 2017. And yes, I'm online with it. I think the whole XP being so easy to hack is just a bunch of non-sense they use as propaganda to get people to use an OS with more backdoors in it (Windows...

    2016 Sees Internet Explorer Usage Collapse, Chrome Surge

    Each browser has so many bugs too... it's a wonder websites mostly work. Web development is such a messy profession due to a lack of standards, too many complexities, and different markup handling by each engine. And then, meshed in are new features. Browsers have to be the most complicated...

    Google Won't Fix Flaw That Can Lead To Malware Download

    This really isn't that big of a deal. Google probably thinks there's no way an infected file can end up in Google Drive. Also, if you're redirected after signing in and are prompted to download a file, you should probably use common sense and NOT download it. If you do download it, well that...

    100Gbps DDoS Attacks Now Commonplace

    Nothing is wrong with an open highway until it's abused. In my opinion, abuse comes from people with no empathy (sociopaths). The internet could be fixed if we fix society first, but those in power who are running the show are usually sociopaths themselves. :(
