    According to news reports, the hackers sent a letter to various media outlets saying they were going to sell the info if the banks in question did not cough up $1 million. They included the details of 2 customers at the end of the letter including names, dates of birth, SIN and account balances...

    Tesla Model S Hits 300,000 Miles in Two Years, Saving $60,000 on Fuel Costs

    The linked article is very short on detail, including what IC-powered automobiles they were comparing the Tesla's operating costs to.

    Company 3D-Prints House in 24 Hours

    The $235/m^2 (~$22/ft^2) was the cost to build a more traditional square house using the same 3d printing machine. A traditional wooden frame house, as built in the US and Canada, would cost far more than that. I built a house some 25 years ago, with average materials, that cost me ~$700/m^2...

    PC Gaming Remains More Profitable Than Console Gaming, Mobile Gaming Surpasses Everything

    Wow. Talk about being overly sensitive. Did I personally insult you? No I didn't. You were neither the OP nor the author of the article. I suspect it is people like you who demand "safe zones" where nothing is allowed to be said that might hurt your feelings or make you feel uncomfortable...

    PC Gaming Remains More Profitable Than Console Gaming, Mobile Gaming Surpasses Everything

    One is possibly a typo. The other is copying and pasting without actually paying sufficient attention to what was copied and pasted. The first was done by someone who presumably received some form of compensation. Is that being a dick or merely expecting somewhat higher standards from those who...

    PC Gaming Remains More Profitable Than Console Gaming, Mobile Gaming Surpasses Everything

    Steam Winter Sale: Recap By Valve

    Now if only there was a way to filter out all those god-awful Japanese anime "games" from the suggested games queue since, apparently, selecting not interested has no effect on more appearing. Contrary to what Valve may believe, my taste in gaming isn't going to change to the point I would ever...

    Stupid Criminal of the Day

    Well that is 1:09 I won't get back. Ignorance and stupidity are not the same thing. Perhaps most Ecuadorians aren't quite so self-absorbed as to walk around with a selfie stick.

    Google Self-Driving Car Cut Off Rival Self-Driving Car

    Some of you have an odd idea of what constitutes being cut off. That two vehicles wished to move into the same lane at the same time and one yielded to the other does not constitute being cut off any more than if it had happened with human drivers.

    The Apple Watch Reviews Are Brutal

    Has there ever been a wrist watch that, except for the basic function of checking the time, did not require you to use your other hand to access whatever additional functions it offered or to look at it while doing so? Hell, the first LED watches required you to push a button to see what time...

    Battlefield: Hardline Trailer Launches Rockets, Cars, Game

    RadioShack Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

    Of course it was Circuit City that bought Radio Shack Canada, only to discover that they had bought the stores and not the Radio Shack name, forcing them to come up with "The Source" as a name. Since Circuit City went bankrupt in 2009, The Source has been owned by Bell Canada Enterprises...

    3D Printed Shelby Cobra

    Not in any pictures I've seen of Shelby Cobras. If you actually compare the car in this video to a real Cobra, the lines aren't quite the same, especially those in the side view around the doors.

    Young People Can No Longer Fix Gadgets

    $500 for an oil change in a 3-series BMW? Either the dealer is doing more than just changing the oil or else he is ripping off the owner. The last time, and only time, I took my '05 M3 to a dealer for an oil change the charge was around $260. That was for 1 hour of labour at $120, a filter, and...

    The 20 Scariest Google Street View Sightings

    WoWP - World Of War Planes

    YouTube Tries To Fix Its Comments

    Only Clear Skies On Google Maps and Earth

    How can anyone find the lack of clouds on Google map creepy? Having a portion of Google map that interests you, say your hometown, obscured by clouds would make the thing as useful as having a paper city map that had big blank patches on it. It is bad enough with all the conspiracy theorists...

    Xbox One FAQ

    I'm still trying to figure out the point of enabling "live" TV via the XBox . If you want to watch OTA broadcasts, your tv's tuner should be able to do that. If you are using a satellite or cable STB, why would you want to stick an XBox in the signal path? Chances are, if you have...

    Accident Would Shut Down Google's Driverless Car Experiment

    An Android Phone Can Hijack An Airplane?

    Aircraft don't rely on external sources for information such as current altitude and speed. For altitude they have radar altimeters (<5000') and barometric altimeters, both of which can feed the autopilot. There is no lying to the aircraft about what altitude it is at, merely lying to the...

    An Android Phone Can Hijack An Airplane?

    Given that virtual planes have virtual pilots, I'm not surprised that he could make the virtual planes "dance to his tune". To say that you could hijack an airplane is pure hyperbole. You may be able to send spoof messages to change headings and altitudes, but real pilots have radios and...
