    WoW Classic 8/27. Beta is May 22–Thurs May 23

    I think you're thinking of the Wotlk Argent Crusade currency in the jousting arena area. I think the other person was thinking of the Argent Dawn currency you used to get in vanilla wow by equipping an item in a slot that awarded you currency for killing undead in the plagueland zones and was...

    FTC Crackdown Stops Operations Responsible for Billions of Illegal Robocalls

    PC Sales to Decline in 2019 Amid CPU Shortages, Weak GPU Market

    Because Intel and Nvidia are the only sources to supply those 2 components. No really, that article never once mentioned AMD. I do know that my company is prepping to do a desktop refresh at many of our locations at the end of this year to get rid of our 10+ year old PCs before upgrading...

    Activision Blizzard Layoffs May Cause Key Talent to Leave

    I will probably be wrong on this prediction (I hope I am to a degree), but I have to wonder if this year might be another year of Blizz skipping a Blizzcon. The last year they skipped was blamed on nothing worthy of revealing. After last year's debacle, I can certainly see them not doing it...

    Visa, Mastercard Mull Increasing Fees for Processing Transactions

    Well, if they want more money, fine - improve the service. Give incentives to merchants to upgrade card readers to chip readers. I, as a consumer, want a card that has a chip that is linked to my mobile bank's app that approves every damn purchase. Alternatively, it should approve online...

    NVIDIA Releases Its Financial Results for Q4 and Fiscal 2019

    Weren't we just reading an article last week of suspicion that Nvidia may have lowballed their true earnings during the height of cryptocurrency to hold back revenue in order to inject into future earnings so as not to cause a stroke with investors when future earnings would get released? I'm...

    Activision Plans to Cut Hundreds of Jobs Next Week

    Well, from a business standpoint, it would make no sense to have folks in those positions to support a brand that is no longer a part of your product line. Sucks, but if you want to point the finger, it would be at Bungie for splitting apart (the reason for the split is a different subject)...

    Netflix Supposedly Poaches Activision Blizzard's CFO

    You all might be onto something here. With the recent release of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, maybe you'll be prompted to purchase alternate storylines with the next show they do like that.

    A.I. Powered Self-Checkout System Identifies the Food on Your Plate

    And I'm sure that going over your government mandated caloric intake level won't have any effect on one's social credit score, right? Or maybe your plate selection will get denied. No, surely it would never be used in such a way to promote controlled resource consumption of its populace.

    Panel Makers to Shift Focus to 8K LCD in 2019

    Wasn't there a report about a year ago stating that 8k OTA signals would introduce a forced targetted content advertising? This might be the motivation for this movement. Ah, here it is So I'm going...

    Amazon Black Friday Deals week started today

    Not sure how anyone feels about the Ring products, but I noticed the 8piece kit for the home security is cheaper than the 5piece unit. History shows it dropped $80 2 days ago
