    Sid Meier's Civilization III Free Humble Bundle

    Requires linking a Steam account with Humble, now owned by IGN, allowing them access to your gaming activity/statistics/achievements. Sigh.

    Twitter Testing Extending Character Limit To 240

    This is hilarious considering Evan Williams (Twitter co-founder, not the bourbon) was on a BBC soundbite complaining about clickbait and how Twitter is being used as an avenue for it which is causing everything to be "dumbed down." Dude, Twitter created clickbait because of that very character...

    New Nissan Leaf Will Have One Pedal

    So is [H] going to continue resorting to entirely incorrect clickbait headlines? It will not have one pedal but the option to use only one pedal as evidenced by the button they show in the first fucking 20 seconds of the video. Also ITT, a bunch of babies that can't be bothered to actually...

    Hard Drive Cost per Gigabyte

    Well, personally, I'm now streaming from my own library of misbegotten backed-up CDs, DVDs, Blurays and family photos/videos. Granted, it'll still be a while before I fill up nearly 11 TB on my NAS.

    China Will Block All VPNs by February 2018

    The Chinese had been enjoying a bit too much freedom in the past few years. It was bound to happen. Gotta keep em under your thumb! Next up, congress and parliament trying to do the same goddamn thing.

    Developer Deletes Entire Production Database First Day on the Job

    I saw the original Reddit post a week ago and it contained plenty of details without giving away his identity. He was following a manual that gave step-by-step instructions for setting up a VM dev environment and the instructions included a script containing the production DB and credentials...

    Netflix Gives Controversial "13 Reasons Why" Series More Viewer Warnings

    You assclowns making mountains out of molehills saying it's violating safe spaces or a parent's job to review everything or that it's nanny state bullshit can fuck right off. It's nothing more than a warning for people that either don't want to see or to specifically give them the opportunity...

    Apple Investigating Wireless Charging via Wi-Fi Routers

    At CES or something similar a few years (2-3) ago, a company was showing off Wi-Fi charging via the router, and it worked. What happened to it?

    Senator Concerned AT&T - Time Warner Merger May Create Net Neutrality Violations

    Wargamers, generally so caught up and mired in pedantic statistics, arguing over something like a hitpoint or two a Sherman should have, so yeah I used this out of normal context, but in the hopes that someone with intelligence might understand I'm calling the cynics a bunch of old armchair...

    Senator Concerned AT&T - Time Warner Merger May Create Net Neutrality Violations

    Great googly moogly what a bunch of cynical grognards. Believe it or not guys, there actually are a few politicians that have listened to constituents or, dare I say it, actually understand what Net Neutrality is all about and think this information gatekeeping shouldn't be allowed.

    86 Year Old Lady Accused Of Pirating Metro 2033

    Read the article, it's sick shit. Short version is that it's a shotgun scare tactic being used by a 3rd party company for cash grab. In the US these fucks would be sued and some D.A. would probably have a good case for extortion charges.

    Bruce Dell of Euclideon & Holoverse Interview @ [H]

    Okiedokie, I made this argument in the wayback machine during the last "reveal" and I'll basically make it again... The laser scan point mapping of course looks fantastic, but it will mean nothing until the software can make it move and change lighting (as AMoody mentions). You may have a...

    Halo 5 Forge Free On Windows 10

    Well, either I fed the troll or you are just amazingly naive. There's nothing remotely tinfoil happening, it's a plainly obvious business tactic, and has been obvious since the first attempt to "persuade" users into Vista with Direct X 10 a decade ago. Also, I suppose you pointedly ignored all...

    Halo 5 Forge Free On Windows 10

    Careful, strawman, you might burn yourself. There's no reason at all that DX12 and this game couldn't run on Windows 7 other than MS trying another method to force adoption of the new OS.

    NVIDIA's GeForce Experience 3.0 Released

    I take it that this is the update that finally requires a login to download drivers? My intarwebtubes are severely limited at the moment else I'd find out for myself and (probably) uninstall GFE entirely.

    LG Put Windows 10 On A Fridge

    I can't believe no one has thought about the amazing overclock potential with the thing being *in a fridge*. But no, what'll actually happen is a forced update will brick your fridge overnight.

    EFF Concerned About T-Mobile's New Unlimited Data Plan

    I'm sure it didn't help when the CEO basically told the EFF to fuck off when they outed T-mobile for their video throttling before. I switched to T-Mo to get away from this kind of BS from Verizon. I don't have many options left for a wireless carrier that I don't utterly loathe due to these...

    No Man’s Sky Has Already Lost 78% Of Its Playerbase

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update – Heaven for Power Users

    After the usual 45 minutes of "change privacy settings/uninstall bloat/disable services/modify GPO" crap for every major Win10 update, it runs great on my SP3 (i5) and is also fine on my HP Envy dv6 laptop. They finally listened and made Dark mode which would be spectacular if things like f'n...

    T-Mobile To Let You Stream Video Without Using Your Data Plan?

    Yes, yes it is. Because this means that everything NOT Netflix or HBO Go/Now is effectively limited. Which is in direct violation of the rules the FCC set.

    Samsung Serif TV Preview

    You keep jerking your knee off like that, you'll go blind. Some people, like myself, don't use their fireplace. Ever. And this design, with its tiny footprint would be great on my mantle. My couch is also at least 8 feet away from my fireplace so looking up a whopping 10 degrees isn't...

    It’s Time To Build The Private Web

    No, the people that don't understand how things work on the back-end are the ones that "want" Google, Siri and Cortana datamining their entire lives.

    Download Windows 10 Here

    Assuming it's the same ones that appear in 8.1 now and what I saw in the 10 Tech preview, they are limited to the default Metro apps like MSN News reader and the like. It's still an utterly contemptible practice for applications shipped with an OS to be adware, but it's not like ads are in...
