    Poor Apple TV App Sales Letting Down Developers

    They really priced it too high vs. the competition. What does this thing do that Roku/FireTV/Etc or game consoles can't do? In fact, I believe the new Roku & FireTV have some 4k capabilities, and the new AppleTV doesn't. That's a blown opportunity there.

    Problem setting up RAID in Windows 10

    If neither is your boot disk/system drive, then you could also use the 'Storage Spaces' feature in your control panel instead.

    No More WoW Numbers

    The basics are still the same. There are pretty major shifts between xpacs in terms of new features, but I wouldn't exactly call an xpac a sequel.

    Playboy To Drop Nudity As Internet Fills Demand

    YouTube Star Buys $4.5M Home

    I still don't recognize the name.... As far as "via trust" goes, probably not a trust fund in the sense you are thinking. He established a trust and that entity actually bought the house instead of him personally. That's not a terribly uncommon practice. If you've any form of personal...

    Netflix Raises Price Of Most Popular Plan By $1 Per Month

    Still much cheaper than cable. Sling/Prime/Netflix/Hulu(no commercials) runs me under $50 per month. I'm only keeping Sling for football season, so it drops to under $30 most of the year. To drop those and go to cable would mean $85/month all year and I'd have to deal with commercials. No thanks!

    Amazon Rolls Out $50 'Mass Market' Tablet

    I need to get a new remote for my Fire TV anyways. The 20 dollar difference will make itself up over time vs. the cost of battery replacements for the voice remote. That thing chews through some AAA's.

    Razer Wants To Sell You A $150 Controller For Xbox One

    Perhaps for the Sabertooth it was, but I had the predecessor to that one and it was great. It breaking was totally my fault, not the quality of the build. I'm also typing this on a Blackwidow keyboard that is very well built. No issues with the build quality on it whatsoever.

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    For business use, nope. Its too new to know how things will act with it. I have upgraded one of my home PC's (months ago) and did a fresh install of it on a new build I did Friday night. I don't see any issues with home use or even light business use - if you don't rely on anything but...

    Competition? 99% Still Rent Cable Box

    I haven't had cable in years, but just reading the thread made me wonder if I could 'add tv' and get a discounted price on it and my internet vs just the internet I have now. Well, I tried to look at the package offers, but it wants me to turn off the pop-up blocker. OK, no problem. Turn that...

    The Evolution Of Modern Game Controllers

    Using a standard 360 style wired controller, but would like to find something newer. The Dpad is on its last legs. I used to use a Razer 360 controller, which was brilliant. There was, however, an accident with it that may or may not have involved copious amounts of whiskeys. They apparently...

    Apple Ads Claim 99% iPhone Satisfaction Rate

    I'm not sure 99% is accurate, but I don't think its too far off, either. I've tried a couple android devices and have gone back to the iPhone as well. The closed nature of the iPhone is probably ultimately what takes me back to it. In may experiences, I just encountered way to many bugs in apps...

    Microsoft Rolls Out Windows 10 Build 10166

    I'm currently on 10130, but the Desktop window manager service has a memory leak. Could anyone on the new build confirm this is resolved? How much memory is your dwm process using?

    Skylake -k confirmed for August/September

    I'm more than likely on board to move to Skylake from an i5 4670k / Z87 Its not that I need more processing power or better pci express - I need more memory capacity.

    H170 vs Z170 Motherboards

    I can't seem to find the max memory configuration for the new Skylake boards. I just maxxed out my z87 today at 32GB, and it may not end up being enough :eek: Hoping that Skylake will be at least capable of 64GB. May have to pony up for X99 otherwise :(

    Not bad looking, just not for me. I'd honestly love to see an outstanding enthusiast class board, with all the bells and whistles, but no 'bling'. Just a plain old green pcb. The Asus deluxe boards are pretty close to that, I suppose.

    Internet Customers Surpass Cable Subscribers At Comcast
