    Microsoft Claims the iPad "Isn’t a Real Computer"

    I'll bash M$ with you any day of the week. But this time they speak the truth. https://www.macworld.com/article/3254653/consumer-electronics/5-reasons-why-ipad-pro-wont-make-you-ask-whats-a-computer.html And that's a "pro" apple magazine bashing the thing....

    Tesla Achieves Production Goal of 1,000 Model 3 Cars per Day

    They look alright on the outside, but that minimalist interior is crap. You ever try to poke a button on a touch screen while bouncing down the highway..... yeah give me hard switches, buttons and knobs please ( on a related note, did you see that vid where a cop pulls one over and says "you...

    Fallout 76 Bug Made a Player Effectively Immortal

    Yeish, with this and everything else, no wonder that guy destroyed a gamestop after being denied a refund. Seriously, someone need to make these devs understand that crap like this is not tolerated.

    Meet the Chatbot That Trolls Telemarketers

    Blocking numbers is useless, as its soo easy to spoof fake caller ID's. Need to whitelist, not blacklist.

    HRE Wheels and GE Additive Collaborate to Create the First 3D-Printed Titanium Wheel

    Can you imagine just trying to clean the brake dust off those. When an actual track race car is using them in competition, I'll call it innovation. But as is, it just looks like more bolt on flash.

    RPG Game Suggestion For Girlfriend

    Not RPG in the purest form, but the latest 2 Assassin's Creed games, Origins and Odyssey are fairly good looking adventure games.

    Blizzcon 2018

    Once you realize you are no longer their customer, and that they are now targeting your kids, it begins to make more sense. Still not happy, but not really that surprised either.

    Homelessness Tax Would Target Rich Tech Sector in San Francisco

    as nutzo said: It is that black and white. I'm more for subsidizing the homeless for relocation to another city where they can get a job and be a productive member of society. But no god damn handouts for doing nothing. We don't need more homeless.

    DICE Made Nvidia’s Ray Traced Gaming Dreams a Reality in Just Eight Months

    From my understanding, the tensor cores are used for either: DLSS or nVidia's new AI based AA, or an AI de-noising of the raytracing samples being done. (look at nVidia's demo videos where they show 1spp noise vs ground truth and such, showing what's being fed into the AI algorithms to get the...

    Netflix is the Latest Company to Try Bypassing Apple’s App Store

    Far as I know, the apple store tax for subscriptions is 15%, it used to be %30 but I think they lowered it in September 2016 for subscriptions, everything else is still 30%. Regardless, when you consider credit card merchant fees from banks are something like 3% (a good five times less), what...

    Doom Eternal

    Don't forget, they added an arcade style score attack mode to doom 2016 post launch. They could have been showing footage from that mode instead of the normal story driven campaign so as not to spoil anything, which would explain the extra life pickup, and lack of NPC dialog.

    #QuakeCon2018 Keynote with DOOM Eternal Gameplay Reveal

    Showed a lot more doom than I thought they would. I'm still surprised after all that to not have a release date announcement, but I still am guessing were probably less than 1 year away. Spring of next year is my bet.

    The Path of Exile Delve Trailer Depicts an Underground Labyrinth of Fear and Torment

    Well, there was also that Darkening of Tristam event they did to celebrate diablo's anniversary, and I can't remember when exactly the class set dungeons appeared...but yeah I agree, no real new content on the d3 front. I kind of wish bliz would just add controller support to the PC version...

    GOG Offering No Man's Sky Refunds

    From my understanding, and I cannot verify its accuracy, but I believe it to be true. The steam version of NMS uses some steam libraries and API's to help handle the networking. GoG's Galaxy client has no such equivalent library, which would mean Hello Games would haft to write their own which...

    Anthem May Not Support Text Chat on PC

    I used to drive a city bus in Austin. One year during SXSW, my bus was beyond capacity (think I had like 75+ people onboard) I pulled up to a pair people in powered wheelchairs on Lavaca. I opened the door and said sorry, I'm full, they of course started to bitch about them being ADA and all...

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars to Return With New Episodes

    While the series as a whole took a while to get going, the last season of Rebels had some damn good moments in it. Much better than the latest movies. Now if only we could get them to continue with Tron Uprising.

    Graffiti Targeting Amazon, Jeff Bezos Illustrates Animosity toward Tech Giant in Seattle

    I don't believe college education isn't the fix. There's a lot of positions that "require college education" on their applications that really don't need a college education to perform. Its just when you have so many applicants, you got to weed it out quickly, and that is just a fast checkbox...

    Roborace Autonomous Hillclimb Run at Goodwood

    Closed, pre-programmed in course in ideal conditions, I wouldn't call this fully autonomous driving. Also seems like its hitting up against a speed or rev limiter on the straights. My guess is they probably aren't truly pushing the limits because they don't want to accidently wreck the car, and...

    NVIDIA Looks to Gag Journalists with Multi-Year Blanket NDAs

    I don't know, it all seems fairly boiler plate. Without other company NDA's to compare it too, I'm not really sure how over the top this one is. (Not that I don't trust Kyle when he says it's bad.)

    SHOCKER - Autopilot Buddy Deemed Unsafe

    You cannot use just the wheel to change lanes, it fights back with weak force very briefly before it gives up and completely disengages auto-steering. The only way to get it to change lanes is to use the turn signal with the autopilot system engaged. When initiated, tt will look in the...

    SHOCKER - Autopilot Buddy Deemed Unsafe

    Yes your right. But like I said, with the regenerative braking manually driving a tesla is not like driving a normal ICE vehicle with an automatic transmission. Hence it promotes a different driving style of ignoring the hydraulic service brakes the majority of the time. (don't believe me? go...

    SHOCKER - Autopilot Buddy Deemed Unsafe

    I actually am fortunate enough to own a model S, and yes, I did pay for "autopilot". I'm also a Class A CDL holder who has driven a lot of different vehicles and I'll just weigh in here and say, I don't like it, and use it sparingly. My biggest beef with it is that while you can turn the...

    Gigabyte Unveils New Accessories at Computex

    Actually, looks like everybody is trying to get vendor lock in with their proprietary RGB lighting solution. Gigabyte Aorus, Asus Aura Sync, Corsair iCUE, MSI Mystic Light, Razer Chroma...etc. Sucks because it means instead of buying what actually performs best, people are just going to buy...
