    Square Enix Market Value Plummets By $2 Billion After Final Fantasy 16 Release

    I think this is somehow a plot from Sony so they can buy them up cheap. I love the Dragon Quest games. FF games haven't had me hooked since FF7. Most of the rest of their games just do not interest me.

    4060 Ti 16GB due to launch next week (July 18th)

    The 4090 and 7900 XTX give good performance for the price, everything else has been pretty awful. The 6700 XT was a better purchase a year ago than anything near it now. The fact that with a specific (awful) sale on Newegg a 7900 XTX was only $800 today make the 4060Ti 16GB for $500 worse than...

    FCC wants to hear about how internet data caps affect peoples lives.

    I have never had a cap on my home internet connection. I had uncapped DSL (Slow but reliable) where I know there were months where I exceeded what the cap would have been with the local cable ISP. Now we have fiber also with no cap. My family did go over the data cap on our phone once or twice...

    Nvidia's AI Software Tricked Into Leaking Data

    But we all know that information will be fed to these "AI" systems because it's easier than actually doing it the right way. Yes they created a rigged test, probably because they know this is how other people/companies using these systems will do it also. It's just a matter of time before we...

    Tesla is off the hook for allowing gaming while driving

    I don't really care for Tesla, but this has to be on the drivers. If you can't drive without playing a game you shouldn't be driving. Also the fact that they know how many people are sitting in the car would keep me away from them. Though I expect that that will be much more common in all cars...

    Nvidia shares soar nearly 30% as sales forecast jumps on 4060 Ti beat

    My favorite comment I read about this said Nvidia's market cap jumped higher than all the revenue they have ever earned.

    Mullvad VPN raided by law enforcement

    I can pull 400-500 mbps through the app at all times on my computer. Not as fast as my Google fiber can connect, but faster than most websites load without it. I like not being tracked and with Google as my ISP there is too much tracking.

    Epic doing Epic things?

    Look into Legendary ( It allows you to run the Epic Games Store without the launcher installed at all. You can just go to the website and pick up the free games. Epic still knows you are playing the game, but they don't get to track your entire computer like...

    Twitter shut off its internal Slack, and now ‘everyone is barely working’

    Jack was not the CEO at the time Elon bought it. Twitter was also earning enough to pay it's debts and making money. Not a lot, but enough that if it had continued that way it would have been fine. What ever Elon did after taking over, Twitter does not work correctly the way it used to. I block...

    Creative founder Sim Wong Hoo, the man behind Sound Blaster, has died.

    I remember hearing midi played through an AWE32 when I was a kid and having it actually sound like an instrument was playing the notes. I also remember the pcb of the card being so long, probably about the length of the 6800XT in my computer right now.

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    Watching those videos reminded me of the upgrade on the 386 my brother and his friends did to the family computer. Since the case was an 80s desktop case the expansion slots were horizontal (like the case). So the new motherboard with a modern PCI layout (no daughterboard) had to be installed...

    Clearview AI aims to put almost every human in facial recognition database

    Their comment about it being protected by the First Amendment is bizarre. Unless collecting photos/data is a religious or press thing it just doesn't make sense. To me at least. It would be nice to have a rich person fight for individuals rights instead of against them. Now that's a pipe dream.

    Nvidia’s new G-Sync monitors let you switch between 1440p and 1080p

    This is the only advantage CRT had over LCD. Changing the resolution changed the resolution of the monitor and you would just resize it to fit if needed. I can't tell the difference between 60 Hz and 170 Hz. So I don't think this would be a feature I would ever shop for. I also can't see the...

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    This is why I am looking into Linux to, replace Windows in the future. I can only see any Windows version getting worse as MS tries to catch up to Google, Facebook, and Apple with the data collection. I understand why MS is doing it though. A few years back they were earning more money from...

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    Edge is just Chrome with a different skin (and less spying than Chrome for the moment). I blocked the stupid Edge new tab page with a Chrome plugin. Just find an extension theme in Chrome you like and add it in Edge.

    Microsoft opens up its store to 3'rd party storefronts

    If a game has an update it will tell you when you try to launch it. Then I just go into the command line and run the update.

    Microsoft opens up its store to 3'rd party storefronts

    I have 3 games from the Microsoft Store, they all work fine, but I would not want to use the Microsoft Store for anything else. I can get the free Epic games on their website I don't need a different store/location to access them. You don't have to use the Epic launcher at all if you use a...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    I'll upgrade to this only when I have to. For the first time on my personal PC a Windows and/or Office 365 update broke things that worked just fine before the update. I don't trust Microsoft's internal testing for their OSes anymore. Also if you like minesweeper check out Globesweeper on Steam.

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    There could be another side to this for the CMP products. They might have so many (enough) defective dies that can still mine, but not be usable for graphic cards that they are doing this to sell off the defective dies.

    I picked up the SXFI Air over the holidays. They can do audio via the USB C cable, line in, Bluetooth, or a microSD card. I have been impressed so far with them. They are going to be great when I have to mow the lawn and can just use the microSD card to listen to music.

    NVIDIA Bans Reviewer for Concentrating on Rasterization Instead of Ray Tracing

    So nothing that HardOCP received for free was ever honestly reviewed? This is such a stupid take. Every article on HardOCP was for views and attention too, Youtube is just a different platform and format for reviews. Just because you don't like watching videos reviews doesn't mean everyone else...

    NVIDIA Bans Reviewer for Concentrating on Rasterization Instead of Ray Tracing
