    Logitech M185 and Other Mice are Vulnerable to Keystroke Injection

    UK Online Pornography Age Block Triggers Privacy Fears

    *except* This is stupid. I found my dad's porn magazine stash when I was like 13... preventing teens from finding porn or having sex is a lost cause.

    Best CPU for Asus X470 Prime

    Don't upgrade to the latest BIOS. PBO doesn't work unless you use Ryzen Master. The BIOS from December worked fine.

    America and Canada Ground All Boeing 737 MAX Planes

    I understand the reason for the new system (new characteristics because of new engines), but they should make turning off that system REALLY easy and apparent when the pilots can easily tell the plane is heading straight for the ground. Why are there no redundant sensors for that critical...

    "No Survivors": Second New Boeing 737 to Crash in Four Months

    Automation is exactly probably why this and the other 737 Max crashed. A faulty sensor confuses the automation or makes it think everything is alright. Meanwhile, a human can just look out and see what's what. I'm going to guess it's the same issue as the other 737 Max accident; but this...

    EA Will Skip the E3 2019 Press Conference

    They have nothing to show. At this point, they just have FIFA. Respawn should take all the praise for Apex.

    UK Will Require Age Verification for Porn Sites in April

    UK arresting people for twitter posts UK firing teachers for questioning halal meat UK arresting people for plastic knives UK arresting people over TV licenses Now this... what a joke. Before the internet, underage kids still found porn.

    The End of Blu-ray

    I think Blu-ray will be around for a long time. There will always be a market for physical media. Not everyone has broadband internet. Internet service or services on the internet don't have 100% up-time. Don't get me started on the horrible compression quality of streaming services.

    Activision Blizzard Layoffs May Cause Key Talent to Leave

    You need to know your own worth and never stop keeping an eye on the job market. For the vast majority of publicly owned companies, they won't bat an eye firing you to make some arbitrary quota.

    Man Who Made Hoax Call In Deadly Swatting Seeks 20-Year Term

    I agree. I also think "no-knock" warrants should be illegal. Who wouldn't get their gun and start shooting when people are trying to break into their houses in the middle of the night.

    Steven Spielberg Is Gunning to Make Sure Netflix Never Has Another Oscars Contender

    It's too easy to make Oscar-bait movies and get awards. It's all a sham anyways. Just like Hollywood and entertainment in general; it's a popularity contest.

    The Biggest Problem with Triple-A, Open-World Games: "They're Boring as Hell"

    Studios saw the open-world design as a way to save money... just like "shoot & loot" online games like destiny and anthem... Just make a cookie cutter sand-box and hope players are entertained. Meanwhile CD Projekt wrote and built many, many, many interesting side stores and quests almost making...

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    PEGI Rating Confirms Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remaster

    Is there a way to buy COD4 remaster by itself? Modern Warfare 1 and 2 were great. But by the time 2 ended, I could see what Activision was trying to do with the franchise. MW3 was the last COD game I bought or played.

    "Criminal Conduct": NYPD Asks Google to Scrap Waze's DUI/DWI Checkpoints

    Actually, I believe the supreme court ruled that cops have to have signs warning of DUI checkpoints, and turning around cannot be used as an excuse to check you out, or give a public notice in a newspaper. So what is the difference between that and an "APP?" The cops know very well WAZE and...
