    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    Thing is, Sweeny knows that Fortnight's revenue stream will dry up (it's already peaked). Can't easily reproduce that lightning in a bottle that was Fortnight, don't make stupid money selling engine licences, and don't make stupid money on internally developed games. EGS has the potential to...

    Well, I WAS looking forward to The Outer Worlds...but not now.

    Ubisoft Will Prevent Third-Party Digital Stores from Selling "The Division 2" after Release

    Well, I have a free key (AMD Ryzen promotion), but doubt I'll be using it. Steam and Origin are about one too many game stores installed on my PC already.

    New Essential Phone an Essential Failure

    I've been rocking mine since '17, just now about to move to a GS10+. Considering I only paid $145 for it all-in (crazy Sprint flex-lease deal), I have absolutely no complaints. Then again, the only things I take pictures of are whiteboards and my thumb, so the camera was a non-issue.

    Microsoft Workers Protest $480M Army Contract with Tech "Designed to Help People Kill"

    There's always the "Reality Winner" types to consider. Or the Mannings. They exist, they're proven to exist, and they will continue to exist. Those type of high functioning idiots would post source code and think they were doing something noble.

    Huddle House Affected by Data Breach in Its Point of Sale Systems

    Ain't none down here that I know of. EDIT: Reckon there are some about 60 miles north of here. Chain is based out of Atlanta.

    The Original Ghostbusters Cast Will Return for New Movie

    Leslie, it's not a dick move. It's a movie with dicks. Yes, it's true, the last movie had no dicks.

    Google and Facebook Cross "The Creepy Line"

    Far in the future? How about now? Lobbyists already have an inordinate amount of power, and most of that is wielded by big corporations. That's before "big data" increased and concentrated that power by orders of magnitude.

    No Price drops on cards for Cyber Monday

    I jumped on the Amazon BF deal on an EVGA 2070 XC for $485, $518 with FL tax and next-day shipping. Also jumped on their HSN-style payment plan of six payments, so it was only $130 out of pocket on Friday, and $99/mo interest free for the next five months. Huge upgrade for me, as I'd been...

    RTX 2080 - 2080 Ti - 2070 Full Specifications Revealed

    Reckon I'll be hanging on to my 780ti a bit longer, because my plan on getting a "good deal" on a new 1080ti probably ain't gonna happen, since there's no downward price pressure from the new generation.

    San Francisco to Future Tech Workers: Your Days of Free Lunch May Be Numbered

    So this puts staff cooks and food service workers out of jobs (and probably well-paying with good benefits) and puts them back in the "$15 minimum wage" pool with shit benefits. Which means they'll probably be a drain on the SNAP program and other state/federal "freebee" handouts (including...

    Venezuela President Maduro Survives “Drone Assassination Attempt”

    Looking like a false flag, not a drone attack: Maduro needs a war with somebody, and a war with Columbia won't result in certain defeat like a war with the US would.

    Amazon Now Lets You Finance Gaming PCs and PC Parts at Zero Interest

    You guys know HSN and QVC have been using this "equal monthly payments, no interest" thing for decades, right? Millions of housewives and insomniacs have taken advantage of this, and it's a core reason why the TV shopping networks were successful and still around in this internet age. Amazon...

    Sony Reinvigorates the Megapixel Race With IMX586 Image Sensor Announcement

    A super awesome camera is my least important feature. If I take any pictures at all, it's either of my pocket, my thumb, or of a whiteboard. If it can read a QR or UPC code, the sensor is generally good enough for me. So obviously I could give a hoot about camera performance, and think more...

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters Official Trailer

    It's an apt analogy. "We are doomed, unless we let monsters save us." is the unwritten mantra of a certain group of people. And as far as monsters go, Godzilla has a higher cool factor than, say, monstrous governmental intervention, when it comes to a cure that's likely worse than the disease.

    James Gunn Fired from “Guardians of the Galaxy” Franchise over Offensive Tweets

    New Essential Phone an Essential Failure

    The first and dumbest mistake armchair pundits make is assuming a new company can come in and get major carrier shelf space, marketing and training time competing against the major manufacturers with billion-dollar product release budgets. So don't blame Essential for not being able to pick up...

    “Star Trek 4” Rumored to Feature Female Villain, New Female Hero

    Star Trek has always been SJW. TNG and the spin-offs just ramped it up, and because it was syndicated instead of airing on a major network, it gave Rodenberry and his acolytes more freedom to proselytize. Which is why I kinda like the reboots better than anything since TOS, because Lensflare...

    3D-Printed Gun Files Can Be Shared without Legal Penalty

    This. Can't be a prohibited class (that includes "short barreled rifles" or "short barreled shotguns", bores over .50 caliber if it's not a muzzle loader, a few other things, and of course no full-auto). It also doesn't free you from the burden of state-specific regulations on possession...

    Elon Musk Calls British Diver from the Thai Cave Rescue a “Pedo Guy”

    This coming in a week where he's about to be excommunicated by the progressives for donating to the GOP (when he actually donates to BOTH parties) and a spate of speculative articles this past week that Tesla cars will stop selling without subsidies, because they've hit the tax credit production...

    Youtube Making Sure You Youtube Correctly

    Just let the Southern Poverty Law Center handle all the story vetting, and things will be fine. I mean, they're Southern, so they can't be leftists, but they're supporting the poor, so they can't be right-wingers, and they're a law center, which implies lawyers, and we know we can trust those...

    Netflix Removing Online Reviews in August

    I'm hoping they retain at least the thumbs up/down system, even if they pull the user-written reviews. The real problem for me isn't the user reviews, it is that by removing the thumbs up/down thing, and with the rather extensive category filter removed some time ago, I can't self-filter shit...
