    Microsoft Doesn’t Want Windows 10 Users To Switch To Chrome

    Yeah, Microsoft, I'd love to give Edge a shot. But right now it doesn't have the one feature I most desire in a browser: Adblocking. Give me that and I might even switch over permanently.

    Minecraft Creator Is Unhappy Being A Billionaire

    Can I get 1000hz polling rate in Windows 10?

    I guess that answers my question. Thank you very much. Oh, one more thing, did you have to apply a fix or do some sort of tweak on Win10 to get the 1000hz polling rate?

    C.H.I.P. - The World's First Nine Dollar Computer

    It's a nice project, sure. Personally I'd rather pay a bit more though to get more power, seems silly and out of proportion to spend 9$ for the processing and much more on input devices and display.

    GTA V PC Patch 350.1 Notes

    It's a pretty solid port all around. Runs well after fixing stuttering issues by disabling the shader cache and increasing process priority. Oh and I needed to disable some shitty Nvidia process related to the shield tablet too. The only problem I had was the game crashing when you...

    Windows 10 Delivers Updates Using Peer-To-Peer Technology

    I don't like this because I'm on ADSL and that means that if I upload at more than 50% capacity, it means my download speeds and latency tank hard. I'll have to find a way to disable uploading.

    Another Death Reported at Foxconn China Plant

    In another, older thread about the Foxconn suicides, someone said that it was statistically insignificant since Foxconn employed such a huge number of people, and that the actual suicide rate was below the chinese average. Not sure if that's true though, just putting it out there.

    Chinese CE Factories Treat Workers Like Prisoners

    Naive view: We've got all these factories churning out stuff, we've got lots of productivity, but all that stuff is being exported while a few people on the top of the chinese power hierarchy rake in the profits. There's got to be some way to redirect that productivity to benefit the chinese...

    The problem is not the low pay itself, it's that these people have no choice but to work these terrible jobs. It's either that or die of starvation.
