    Adobe to Launch Photoshop for iPad in Strategy Shift

    I don't see it as a matter of speed. Diminishing returns have come some years ago that it doesn't matter much the platform you run Photoshop. It's still a big deal what medium you use to perform duties with it. Mouse or pen versus fingers, there's no contest. Mouse or pen win every time versus...

    PC Shipments Grew for the First Time in Six Years

    I'm in IT and I make a living with browsers and many tabs. My Core i5 makes no difference to me than my Core i7. I'm sure there's a difference if you run benchmarks, or hell, even by simply noticing it, but in a "who gives a damn" point of view, it makes no difference. I'm not in a hurry to...

    Silicon Battery Technology Breakthrough to Dramatically Increase Electric Vehicle Range

    That might be true ten years ago but we have Elon Musk that might take Norway up on their breakthrough, then other automakers will follow. I hope Elon never dies.

    PC Shipments Grew for the First Time in Six Years

    Diminishing returns. My rig's a 3rd-gen Core i5, 8gb RAM and a Geforce 420 (I think it's called, lol), and with a Samsung SSD it's still a pretty fast machine. I still have no plans to upgrade in the next few years. The last games I've played was WoW and Counter-Strike and it's been about 5...

    Walmart Patents Audio Surveillance Technology to Record Customers and Employees

    meanwhile Walmart's prices go up another 10% while their employees' wages are stagnant because they're wasting their money on R&D over something that'll never fly with privacy advocacy groups.

    ASRock: Coffee Lake CPUs Not Compatible with Z270 Motherboards

    Eh, doesn't bother me overmuch. I tend to build a computer every half decade. I'm still sporting a third gen i5 with a Samsung EVO and it's as fast as I need it to be. I don't upgrade fast enough to care about drop-in compatibility.

    Homeless People Lose Internet Access Over Illegal Downloads

    That's a very large brush you're painting them with. Most homeless people are vets with PTSD or felons who aren't capable of integrating with society again. We need to fix those underlying issues that caused them to be there in the first place.

    Homeless People Lose Internet Access Over Illegal Downloads

    So let me see if I get it: the powers that be thought that giving homeless people internet where they can access things they cannot afford anyways will not access them. :confused:

    Bing Keeps Growing As Google Declines YOY

    I wasn't giving them a pass. I'm just saying that Google being compared to Bing's being thrusted on us isn't the same when it comes to Windows because you actually have to download and install Chrome. You chose to use Google in Windows whereas you don't chose to use Google by default unless you...

    No because you have to install Chrome as opposed to already having a browser in Windows. But yes on Android phones.

    Red Hot Nickel Ball Versus Tinsel

    Lawsuit Demands The Right To Resell Steam Games

    Sure. Ever heard of Gamestop? Me, I don't care either way. The point of Steam for me is to get games at dirt cheap prices when they're on sale. You won't ever catch me paying $49 or $69 for games. Hell, I haven't bought games over $12 for a very long time.

    Microsoft Apologizes For Late Payments To Indie Games Devs

    I'm not one to defend the government, but it's usually if you send in your tax form early, you get your money rather quickly - usually 3-4 days to direct deposit for me. But if you wait til the last minute like 99% of the population... well just remember there are 300 million of us.

    Michigan Joins List Of Tesla-Hating States

    that's a myth. Despite lost cost of manufacturing overseas, items are STILL marked up exponentially in our market. Do you think it really cost them $699 to make that iPhone? Korean cars cost the same as American cars too. Unions may have their faults, but this isn't one of them.

    Michigan Joins List Of Tesla-Hating States

    suit yourself, they were examples. There's a lot of regulation-supporting Democratic and Independents out there that wants to put Wall Street and Big Oil in their places. That's why we're an oligarchy, not a plutocracy. Not to mention the increasing numbers of what the right likes to call...

    Yes they do have an enormous waiting list, one factor in our decision not buying one. We'd have to wait over three months before getting our car, if that. Tesla's factory was also on the verge of being partially shut down at the time I was shopping for a new car, so their production rate was...

    Michigan Joins List Of Tesla-Hating States

    Perhaps, but I read somewhere a few months ago, I think in greencarreports.com that despite union and dealer middlemanship, mainstream cars are only marked up by 6% while Tesla, despite being sold direct, are marked up by a whopping 25%.
