    The End of Blu-ray

    Samsung isn't the only manufacturer to stop making BD players. OPPO was the first to quit making them citing lack of profit (at $600 per). I'm hoping this isn't a trend, but the downward trend in Blu-Ray sales doesn't sound promising. I have a great quality 75" 4K display (Sony Z9D), Atmos...

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    I'm aware of the emails and have read quite a few of them. The fact that he hasn't been indicted yet is either because our justice system is extremely corrupt OR they don't have enough evidence to indict. I suspect it is the former, but I don't know it for a fact. I also suspect that if the law...

    Well anyone who takes Alex Jones seriously isn't paying attention. The man is a straightup nutball.

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    Let's not let facts get in the way. First off John P is not nor has ever been an elected politician. He "might" very well be a slimeball, but I haven't seen any proof of that yet. He hasn't been indicted for anything just yet. Playing loose with facts is one of the many things that has this...

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    A good example would be the Dennis Prager videos. Many of them were removed from Youtube. They are all fact based, but many are apparently objectionable to the YT powers that be. Watch them at http://prageru.com and judge for yourself.

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    So it sounds like no real change in their BS policies of what will be taken down, just a different way of implementing the take down. Got it - if it leans the slightest bit to the right it gets a strike then it's gone.

    Best motherboard for 2700x

    For what it's worth I've been running a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi with a 2600 for the last 5 months or so. I don't game much so take this with a grain of salt. When I first built it I ran the typical stress tests and memory testers for a few days and had zero problems. For normal use I...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Uhhhhh, being Red Pilled generally refers to those who were on the left leaning side of things waking up to the reality that conservatives are actually (mostly) on the side of truth and are correct about quite a bit more than one previously believed (no one is perfect and both sides have their...

    White House Mulls Antitrust Probe on Tech Giants

    Exactly this! Lefty speech no matter how offensive is OK, but much that is conservative is blocked, deleted or shadow banned. A good example is many of the Dennis Prager videos being deleted on Youtube. His videos are definitely not hate speech in any way, but because they don't agree with...

    California Launching Their "Own Damn Satellite" to Fight Climate Change

    I moved from Commiefornia so I've seen its decline firsthand. Gov Moonbeam and his leftist administration have no idea how to budget or spend money effectively. When your state is so grossly in debt how can you possibly justify frivolously spending money on things that will make absolutely no...

    California Launching Their "Own Damn Satellite" to Fight Climate Change

    Temperature and CO2 measurements going back hundreds of thousands of years show similar rise and fall of temperature and CO2 over a much longer period of time than is typically used. CO2 rise generally lags temperature rise - think about that.

    If only Nolan would pay as much attention to audio as he does to video. The 5.1 clipped audio mess in his movies is unacceptable, Dunkirk for example.

    AMD GPU Generational Performance Part 1 @ [H]

    I'm not real familiar with AMD video cards. Where do the RX 570 / RX 580 fall on the performance spectrum? I'm guessing between Fury and Vega?

    GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review @ [H]

    I'm using the Gskill FlareX AMD specific memory - Kyle just recently posted a review of it. All I had to do was change it to run Profile 1 in the BIOS and it has been running at 3200 Mhz with no problems. It is more expensive, but read the review as to why it might be worth it. [H] review...

    GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review @ [H]

    I haven't built a computer in 7 years or so. Got mine running, but in the process I did my best to kill it. After the initial assembly I didn't realize I had plugged a 6 pin PCI Express power connector into the 4 pin ATX power slot which applies 12v to ground (how did they even manage to key...

    FBI Hacker Says Apple Are “Jerks” and “Evil Geniuses” for Encrypting iPhones

    Maybe if we had any assurance that our own gov't agencies weren't already illegally spying on us encryption wouldn't be so necessary. They should need a warrant to access anything encrypted anyhow. US Constitution anyone???

    Hyperloop Co-Founder 'Very Serious' About California Secession

    Fellow Coloradan here. I would laugh except they've ruined this state politically. Why do these morons move here to get away from the mess that is California and then vote the same way they did there? Did they somehow expect it was going to turn out differently here than it did there???

    Bill Gates Skipped All His Classes But Got A's Anyway

    Maybe they've changed the ASVAB since I took it, but when I took it in the mid 80's it was mind numbingly simple. I was shocked when I went through AF Basic training and saw all the composite ASVAB scores on the roster sheet. There were two of us out of 50 that had 98 / 99 percentile scores and...

    Microsoft: New CPUs Will Require Windows 10
