    Oculus Quest

    Yeah I will probably get one just for when i travel so i can have something to do. Wonder how you get it on Hotel wifi generally those have a click x to agree to our terms before they let you on. Not that you would need their for games but never know.

    Oculus Quest

    So I will confess I have not search as hard as i could but how is setting up the Quest done? I assume requires a phone but then does it just use your wifi for things like streaming netflix or does it go through your phone to do that?

    Rift S

    I personally dont see myself buying the rift s. My current one does all i need it to do. Although passthrough sounds nice. I may get the quest though just to have a portable way to play with while traveling.

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    It probably will fragment the population a little bit, but if you look at the private realms i want to say they had about 500k playing on them give or take. So my estimate is initially blizzard will have over 1mil on them but after the first month will probalby hover around 3-400k people. not...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    I am looking forward to it personally. I hope it will restore some community to at least some of the player base. Back when you had to know people on your realm, and didnt worry about all this phasing/sharding going on. While I know i will miss some of the quality of life improvements made to...

    Two-factor authentication

    Just looking at two factor authentication for tacacs in a mixed environment. I have read the cisco items and they seem straight forward enough but cant find much on Juniper. would like to keep as vendor neutral as possible so regardless of gear installed could be used. Youbikey seems to have...

    Two-factor authentication

    So i am reading up on these Yubico devices, and I am trying to see if they could be used for TACACS like Cisco, Juniper etc. So far I cant seem to find anything on their site about it or from searching either. Has anyone done this with them yet and can provide a little insight?

    JP Morgan's "Digital Coin" is Not a Cryptocurrency

    I am having a hard time trying to grasp the why of all of this. I mean if it is only used internally how hard is it to just transfer money from account a to account b already? my first thought and I could be way off is maybe this can be used to hide certain transactions by saying we didnt...

    Activision Blizzard Begins Cutting 8 Percent of Its Workforce

    As a WoW player I am seeing a few of the CMs tweet they have been laid off, not sure how those are sales and administrative?. Makes you wonder if Mike Morhaime saw all this coming and it factored into his decision to retire and leave.

    17% of Americans Use Smart Speakers

    I use mine for alarms, timers, playing a few podcasts, music, weather, and so on. I could do all these with other device before but this makes it a little convenient. It helps me multi task a few mundane items so i can keep doing other stuff while having information provided to me. I will...

    Cisco NAM replacement

    Sorry I guess I should have been a little clearer. Basically I use it for packet captures when troubleshooting issues. 99% of the time to show customers yes your traffic is passing through all these devices just fine it is your server that is causing the issue. The CISCO NAMs also do other...

    AT&T Launching New Streaming Version of DirecTV

    I would cut the cord and do something like this if my ISP, who is not ATT but a local small town company, didn't have caps and overage charges. My question is for those that have cut the cord and use these types of streaming services how much data are you using with your ISP? Do you have...

    Certification suggestions for intrusion detection/Snort

    I agree, to me CISSP is more of a management type thing because it is so broad. If you want to go more red team type I would say maybe consider the OSCP cert. It would be a tough test from what I have been told.

    Anybody out There Still Listening to Music on AM or FM Radio?

    I personally listen still in the car. I have a few local sports stations and NPR on the drive into work. Also I generally enjoy the commentators for one broadcast for a local college team way more than national broadcasters, so when i watch their games I just put the tv on mute and listen to...

    Ready Player One Sneak Peek at SXSW 2018

    I love the book and now based on the above need to get the audio version as well. I just went through and read it again last week preparing for the movie. I am sure the movie will take many liberties and make changes but that's any movie really.

    High-end Smartphones Killing Off High-end Smartphones

    They used to be subsidized by the carrier as well, now they realize we can charge full price and either it is paid upfront or over installments so they have a constant revenue stream.

    40% of Americans Predicted to Cut the Cord by 2030

    I personally believe as more people do slowly switch from paying for cable to streaming services those prices will begin to go up slowly, along with ISPs deciding to either not raise data caps so they can bill you for the "overage" you use each month or sell an addon for your ISP pacakge of...
