    Family Opens Fake, Wooden PS4 Christmas Morning

    About a decade ago when I worked returns at a big retail store, it was common for people to return boxes with a phone book inside instead of the device. When employees stole things, they "fell off the truck." I don't remember an employee ever leaving behind a box or anything like that.

    Man Sues Bethesda Over 'Fallout 4' Addiction

    I'm somewhat "uncoordinated" and I have some personal experience in this "spilling coffee on oneself." Never once have I received a 3rd degree burn. At worst my skin is red for a little while. I like my coffee hot, not scalding.

    X-Men: Apocalypse Official Trailer

    Isn't it normal in stories for the bad guy to call himself "God" or "a god" only to be shown his place by mere "mortals?" I think it's actually a pretty good lesson in there: No matter how powerful you think you are, you are not God.

    Apple Now Selling $800 Lightning-Based Headphones

    "I don't understand something. It must be stupid!" :p I'm actually pretty sad someone here in the [H] comments didn't pick up on this earlier. The article is just sensationalizing the fact that the headphones, made by a totally different manufacturer than Apple, are not using a 3.5mm jack...

    20% Of Americans Use Internet 'Almost Constantly'

    Statistics you say? Burn that shit with fire lol. Nah, I actually did that crap for a living for a while. I'm super picky about *broad* samples. There's really no indicator here of where the samples came from. Was it just one town? Was it people all over the nation? I see they mentioned...

    I like it. Those new laser weapons the US Military is using would work great for taking down drones as well.

    20% Of Americans Use Internet 'Almost Constantly'

    Despite Windows 10, Windows Phone Is Doomed

    There simply isn't room for a third OS. Developers don't have a desire to develop for 3 different platforms. I know I don't. =|

    Nintendo Unveils Its First Smartphone Game "Miitomo"

    The original Wii did really well. It's the Wii U that tanked. I'm not sure how Wii Fit activities are not exercising? It's certainly better than twiddling your thumbs on an Xbox controller. You seem awfully angry that people like to exercise in different ways. :rolleyes:

    Nexus 6P Performs Poorly In Durability Test?

    I am more concerned about the screen cracking after a scratch test than I'm concerned with the bending. With enough effort, you could bend any phone. The screen cracking that easily shows a major weakness in the product.

    Government iPhone Unlock Request Is Like Forcing Lethal Injection?

    Use the command sharknice gave to you. There's one thing you have to do before it will work. You need to turn hibernation off completely from the command prompt: powercfg -hibernate off Once you've done that, his command should do what you're looking for.
