    Rise of Skywalker

    I don't disagree with anything you've said. Just want to point out that Luke was a whiny little bitch in A New Hope also. I didn't notice it when I was a kid, but watching it now makes me cringe. I want to reach right through the screen and throttle the cunt at least 5 times during that film.

    Intel Internal Document Details How It Will Counter the AMD Threat

    Depending on your specific use case, AMD may offer a superior product and/or greater value....or not. I do find it a bit odd that you've not even considered AMD's recent offerings. Even if you choose something else in your final decision, refusing to consider options seems a bit off.

    Prominent tech reporter charged by the FBI in connection with attempting to solicit sex with minors.

    Being 'pro' a bunch of things that already exist and are already punishible by law if an outlier is found. Edgy. We should be focusing on the individual, not the group, when discussing suitability or anything else for that matter. Treating all members of any arbitrarily assigned or...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    Jesus, you're dense. Read once again the earlier post. You made no statement in that post as to if or if not anything could happen. I think your fundamental issue comes from the fact that you seem to be thinking I replied to something I did not. I commented exactly on what I quoted originally...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    Wait...wut? Doubled down on what? How am I dragging you into any direction? If you don't wish to respond to something, then don't. It's not complicated, Bucko, I honestly think you may be the only one who knows what you're even going on about at this point. PS: I guess I can see how you got...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    I'm not insisting anything, you're being unnecessarily defensive. We're not in any form of disagreement that I see. Misunderstanding perhaps. My post did not disagree with yours, in fact, in the post of yours that I replied to you didn't state anything to argue or disagree with. /shrug I'll...

    Newegg to start charging sales tax to eight new states starting July 1st

    Do you really think so? I don't. You may very well be right, and I'm not arguing...just giving my opinion. I think the ease of making purchases and selection available online plus the convenience of making purchases without getting off your ass instead of dealing with traffic will trump a bit of...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    Short Answer: No. What happened in S. Korea could not have happened without a degree of freedom (personal, economic, and otherwise) that the CPC will not allow its citizenry. If the CPC ever got their filthy boots off of the collective neck of the Chinese people...amazing things would be...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    How much has it really changed? Perhaps not as much as some would like to think. Most changes are a thin veil covering the same ugliness. You can cover a pile of shit with gold leaf but it's still a pile of shit. Just marginally less repulsive at first glance. The movement of citizens is still...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    As I've said before....those who are 'white knights' when it comes to China generally have never lived there or had many dealings with Chinese people. Actual Chinese people. Not those in Taiwan or Singapore or even HK. I'm talking about the 1.4 billion Mainlanders who lie, cheat, and steal in...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    Uh...I hope that was sarcasm that went over my head because China has been and is currently banning numerous tech companies and countless other companies. This is nothing new. You been living under a rock or something? Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Google and everything related to Google...

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    I think you'd be very hard-pressed to find an honest person who knows anything about how things operate in China who thinks doing business with a Chinese company is a good idea. Some may consider it a necessary evil but I think that's just a bullshit excuse to chase profits in the short-term.

    Huawei Ousted from Associations That Create Global Standards

    Evidence? Huawei is a Chinese company. Full stop. By Chinese law that means they must comply with anything the Communist Party of China orders them to. By Chinese law, Huawei must have members of the CPC on-site to nudge them to actions which will benefits the CPC. Not what benefits Huawei. Not...

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    I know. I know because you've mentioned it more than once. On a tech website. If you have something to say, then say it. I find it rather difficult to respond to meaningless posturing.

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    Of course that wouldn't fly. Nobody wants to see garbage like a trans Max Payne. I'll even include those who are not really trannies but just lonely little losers with otherwise empty and meaningless lives who pretend to be trans for attention in that group. Even if all the real trannies and...

    Ubisoft donates 500,000 Euros / Assassin's Creed: Unity free for a week after Notre Dame fire

    Good. I don't care if the French gov't owns the building. I don't care if the fire was intentional or not. I despise the Catholic church and don't believe in any god or gods. That said, if there is any way to repair/reconstruct what was lost....we absolutely should do so and do so to the best...

    Help finding new Hardware News Site

    This was one of the few sites I visited where things felt balanced in the forums. Sure, they tried to keep politics out of the FPN but it was an uphill battle in many instances. Here, there certainly were leftists, some raging leftists even....but they rarely shouted down or otherwise silenced...

    Yes and no. They gave a bit of marketing nothing-speak. I have no doubt you're right about their intentions expanding.

    Our culture is dying. I am sad. The 'west' is going to get its collective ass kicked by a bunch of young men from anywhere who went outside to play sports with their friends as boys.

    Amazon will launch thousands of satellites to provide internet around the world

    This isn't for what some seem to think it's for. If you have a reliable internet connection....this probably isn't aimed at you. If you already purchase from Amazon frequently.....this probably isn't aimed at you. If you can currently stream fake titties at 1080.....this probably isn't aimed at...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    Give me a fucking break. Look at the graph YOU provided! Poverty rate in 1965 - 15.2% Poverty rate in 2017 - 12.3% 22 Trillion well spent? I'm sure some economists could make a graph showing that the poverty rate *may have been* higher without those expenditures but imaginary numbers don't...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    Look at the poverty rates before our 'war' on it and today. Pretty f'n close to identical. And no, I'm making the argument that our 'poverty' isn't poverty in most cases. Pretty far from poverty actually. If you were making the argument that people who cannot feed themselves and who have nowhere...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    No, it isn't. Being poor in the US isn't really *poverty* for most. I've seen poverty. I traveled through Central America for a year and have lived in China for nearly a decade. The homeless in the US have it better than many in poverty elsewhere. If poverty by itself causes crime...how does it...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    You have a hard time keeping up with your own words? You said not having a job creates bums or criminals. It's not a strawman to argue that criminality generally comes from somewhere other than the unemployment line. Poor or not, as I said earlier, does not matter. Not having a father or...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    I think you have some serious misunderstandings about how the world actually works. In general, criminals are not criminals because they don't have jobs nor because their trying to feed/house/clothe/be responsible for others. Life is not a movie. Criminals are not all Jean Valjean. Poverty does...

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    I cannot tell you how strongly I disagree with this without using words I shouldn't. 1. I highly, highly doubt you'd see businesses choosing their clientele based on race. It makes exactly zero sense to do so and will hurt only the business itself. I really don't know where you live that you...

    That's complete silliness. And...for the record...I would not give half a crap if some mass murderer referenced me somehow. I'd sleep soundly and not be bothered. Not that that has anything at all to do with the conversation though. I cannot control what others think. I cannot control what...

    Health Apps Sell User Data

    I was with you until you mentioned single-payer as some kind of positive. I will agree that our healthcare system needs some work but single-payer certainly is not the answer. Unless of course, your question is..."How do we fuck up healthcare for everybody in the States?"

    Google Fined $1.7 Billion Over Monopolistic Practices

    The article stated that it's the smallest of three fines levied against them by the EU. I'm curious as to how much of their fines have actually been paid. I'm not curious enough to look into it though.
