    Sony removes Cyberpunk from the PS playstore

    I know this was a pro-console post but still was a good jump point.. The Switch has, quite surprisingly, been the perfect console for me. I'm not gonna go upstairs to use the computer when all four animals and the husband are downstairs, and my energy of activation to turn on a console is in...

    Engineer Gives Interview After 28 Core Debacle

    Funny parody video... Hopefully no one actually thinks this was about anything to do with tech.

    Building Blocks of Life Found on Mars

    So you "believe" the big bang, which you so flippantly linked to, happened a few million years ago? Keep in mind that the farthest observed star is >10 billion light years away via red shift parameters.

    Facebook to Spend Actual Money to Prevent Abuse

    Links to the ads the US government has bought, pretending to be a member of another country in order to promote a political candidate? I only ask because you make a declarative statement that we have done it, and as much as I've seen the news (i.e.: US news while saying "We're the US news")...

    Facebook to Spend Actual Money to Prevent Abuse

    Yeah, why would advertising have an effect on peoples' choices? LOL! What a stupid industry. Another thread that will get locked by page 3.

    Facebook: 126 Million Americans May Have Seen Russia-Linked Political Posts

    Because that's adult.... Wait.. what? You have people bombing people and running vehicles through crowds but your goal, after the election is over and she's lost... is to see Hillary burned to death? Based on what? Things you've see on YouTube or read on Fox News or its conglomerates...

    Facebook: 126 Million Americans May Have Seen Russia-Linked Political Posts

    If Russians running ads isn't a big deal (to the majority of the people who have responded so far), then why not just say they are Russians running ads? Why would they pretend to be US Citizens or US political groups? Obviously there was something to gain by pretending to be US Citizens/groups...

    Google Uncovered Russia-Backed Ads on YouTube, Gmail

    I'm not sure what the major issue is, nor who decided what is and isn't a major issue... I just see opinion in your post. I think that's the point -- post something fact based and I'll decide what is or isn't a major issue and to what extent. Until then I just shrug and say "Maybe." Again I...

    Google Uncovered Russia-Backed Ads on YouTube, Gmail

    You must have replied to the wrong person. I'm not interested in Facebook or Google or even Russian motives. I think I can figure that out on the back-end. I am interested in how many Russian or other government-backed accounts on social media sites pretended to be American and posted...

    Wouldn't you rather see AMD do better? So that there's actual competition and reason for NVidia to continue to innovate and advance? -Still Running a 1070

    Google Uncovered Russia-Backed Ads on YouTube, Gmail

    No intellectual curiosity to know what the extent of it was? I.e.: If a few of the known Russian government-controlled groups on Facebook had their (re: Russia's) politically targetted ads shared and liked over 300 million times, and we still don't even know how many groups or accounts there...

    SNES Mini Already Hacked to Play Downloaded Games

    5MB?!??!! Super Mario 64 was 8MB.. SNES games are on the average far less than 1MB. There are some that are up to 4MB. Super Mario World is ~300kB. That's right... 300kB fucked your whole shit up.

    Vega Rumors

    So rather than contend that the Vega is a better product, you instead contend that it doesn't matter that it's worse because you, subjectively, can't really tell the difference...?? Even giving a game-by-game explanation of why it being a worse product doesn't subjectively matter to you...

    Here we go...W10 updates broken

    I find it to be both normal and acceptable for a human to become frustrated and express said frustration over something not simply working out-of-the-box...

    Barclays: Nobody Wants to Buy a $1,000 iPhone

    This... if something is offered at a monthly payment and interest free, you are actually costing yourself money by paying full price up front. I mean in general investing the extra $950 up front will only make you another $200 over 2 years, plus 3%/year inflation that actually decreases your...

    Airbnb Host Who Canceled Reservation Using Racist Comment Must Pay $5,000

    Maybe you'd have an easier time understanding it if you took off whatever direction-facing race blinders you have on and just read it like a normal person. You clearly don't have all the facts. It's unfortunate that you think after reading one source--all sources, by the way, have a bias; have...

    Vega Rumors

    Nice guy. I think the mental point of his post was that a card comes out a year later which runs slower and offers nothing over the current options and, whether or not they matter to you, has some apparent handicaps. Which engenders the question, "Why pick it?" The answer would seem to be...

    Tesla Introduces New Performance Enhancements to Model S and Model X

    You can keep your 7-seconds-to-60 car. I mean I don't go crazy with supercharging and changing the exhaust and race chip, but I definitely appreciate the sub-5 second range. If you like cars at all and spend decent money on a car it's actually rare to be able to find one that slow... even a...

    Vega Rumors

    So they'll price it competitively to make it attractive to people who don't want to spend >$400 on a video card. $350 for 1070/1080 hybrid performance. You'll need liquid nitrogen cooling and a nuclear power supply, but hey.

    So you admit TDP isn't "wholly immaterial," and that having poor TDP is a handicap, i.e.: Vega.

    Not as much as creating an inferior, slower, hotter product unable to gain market share will bite AMD.

    Vega Rumors

    Freesync is an open architecture and can be "served" by Nvidia. So far they haven't had a reason to since they've completely dominated AMD. Again, even laptops use G-Sync screens and Nvidia GPUs. There simply isn't a market share advantage to supporting Freesync.

    Vega Rumors

    So you're under the (mis) impression that mobile versions of Nvidia/AMD are created de novo and have nothing to do with the underlying architecture? That's not true. It's wholly material that their top-of-the-line product is hotter and slower than the competitor. They most certainly do find...

    Inauthentically pretending that power efficiency is "wholly immaterial" is, as the internet likes to say, willfully ignorant. Cooling architecture, laptop-ability, SoC applications, etc. Not to mention the fact that some people don't want a mega space heater in their office fighting their AC...
