    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Honestly, if you are going to completely let the political leanings of actors dictate what you watch, it's time to turn off the TV - 99% of actors are leftists. They're just not all preachy about it. Yes, I already knew SPS is crazy leftist. Don't care. He's an awesome actor. I watched it. I...

    On a 3900X... The Wraith Prism matched the performance of the Noctua NH-14S (1015g / $75). It beat the performance of an Arctic Freezer 13 (700g / $30) It is relatively quiet. AMD did good with the stock heatsink.

    Tim Cook to Investors: People Bought Fewer New iPhones Because They Repaired Their Old Ones

    I've gone for 15 years with whatever phone has the best camera and, like it or not, the iPhone 11 brings a better camera/filtering software than everyone else. It also has a second wide-angle camera, like the LGs. ...and a zoom, if you have the Pro. There may be phones with better lenses and...

    Intel Corporation Appoints New Chairman With Experience

    So you're telling me he was brought in to buy or merge with another company? Who would intel acquire or merge with to dig them out of this hole? TSMC? HP?

    The Original Star Wars IX Script Has Allegedly Leaked. And It's Much Better Than The Rise of Skywalk

    Killed his father in Ep. 7. Force ghosts are going to save him? I watched 7 and was dragged to 8. I skipped 9. Vote with your wallet. Disney should have made the Thrawn trilogy instead of this rehashed, "metoo" PC crap.

    The man who made Wolfenstein

    I guess I'm a pessimist, but id made Wolfenstein a thing. It looks like the only thing they really got from this was the name.

    Ripped off on Black Friday

    FKA as, which was always shady. Just because it was purchased by a Japanese megaconglomerate, probably doesn't change its spots.

    Musk is a douche, but I agree with this. P.S. Don't sue me, Elon.

    The Simpsons is finally ending after 30 years, according to show's composer

    There are a lot of "get off my lawn" types in here. Admit it, you got older, started having more responsibilities, smartphones and streaming TV sucked away your free time, the show's formula wore off on you and you just no longer had time for the Simpsons. Millions of other people are still...

    Intel Xe GPUs will only appear as reference cards with AIBs not willing to cooperate

    Having worked at small companies and big companies, I have found that big companies become more political as they grow as the sharks eat the smaller sharks. This encourages them to retain the kiss asses with mediocre ideas. Smaller companies have to hire the best talent or they will not survive.

    Why 8K TV is a non-starter for PC users

    I agree. 1080p is fine for most desktop monitors for gaming. You lose 3x the processing power on making lines less jaggy, when other visual improvements would have a much bigger impact, as others have said.

    AMD's Ryzen 3000 Boost-Fixing BIOS Leaks out

    It looks like it is due mostly to a cryptominer algorithm change, stressing the CPU more and not the revision.

    AMD's Ryzen 3000 Boost-Fixing BIOS Leaks out

    Anyone else seeing a major temperature change after the boost fix? On the pre-boost fix AE1 BIOS for the MSI Gaming Plus X470 and 3900X, my temps were 80°C. I flashed to the latest AF1 bios from MSI and temperatures went up to 90°C. I also tried a modified AE1 BIOS with the boost fix microcode...

    Private Internet Access sold to Kape Technologies (a shady company known for bad privacy ethics).

    I used PIA. Once they sorted out their software (about a year ago) it was fantastic. Unfortunately, I switched to NordVPN. Supposed to be one of the best performing, lowest price, Netflix compatible and servers located in a privacy oriented country. However, I don't know if my cable provider...

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    I switched to their service a few months ago from PIA, because of increased security (based out of US), however their service is SLOW! I frequently connect to IPs where I get no connection. Not sure if my ISP is blocking those servers or what, but I never had problems with PIA.
