    Google Fined $1.7 Billion Over Monopolistic Practices

    My apologies then if I missed your sarcasm, I see that argument so often used and it is very baffling to me how someone can think that would be a realistic business option.

    Google Fined $1.7 Billion Over Monopolistic Practices

    Wow, this again: Do none of you have any business sense whatsoever? Do you realize how fast Sundar Pichai would be removed if he were to propose your idea to the board of directors? The shareholders lawsuits would come so fast it would make your head spin. To paraphrase Boromir: One does not...

    Google Fined $1.7 Billion Over Monopolistic Practices

    Oh yes that argument, somehow it always shows up ... indeed they should pull out of a 18+ trillion dollar market, I'm sure no major competitor will take advantage of that. That would be one heck of a business decision. :rolleyes:

    Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset Review @ [H]

    If I understood correctly (not guaranteed since it's 2:30 am here :confused: ) this headset is amazing for consuming media (videos, movies etc...) but a big meh for gaming. In this case would you say it's worth it, if media consumption is the primary goal? Or would high quality $400 headphones...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    Hahahahahaha...sorry I could not stop laughing when I saw this review and realized it's posted way earlier than anyone else. Guess choosing not be an industry shill does pay off after all. Awesome job Kyle :cool: About the card: While it is interesting from a technical standpoint, from a bang...

    Elon Musk's Flamethrower Tested

    So they discovered that a product called "Not a flamethrower" is not actually a flamethrower ... guess on the next episode we'll find out if you get wet when when swimming in the ocean (y) e-thugging in progress ... :ROFLMAO:

    Stars Wars Spaceships Were Not Designed for Air Travel

    I think there are quite a few strong arguments against the F35 IMO they should've kept the F22 line open then developed the electronics package currently installed in the F35 for them. The end result would've been a far superior plane for far cheaper. Then just build a flipping dedicated plane...

    Stars Wars Spaceships Were Not Designed for Air Travel

    To be more accurate the main reason he was able to fly was still due to aerodynamics in particular the F15 has a lifting body design: (and enough remaning control surfaces of course) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifting_body However as you mentioned, having massive thrust does indeed help...

    The EU Hates Memes

    Way to completely put words in my mouth, the US has absolutely been a positive force in Europe and it will still probably be in the future, who said anything to the contrary. Like you said it looks like we are not much in disagreement. This is one of the areas the EU really needs to improve...

    The EU Hates Memes

    Is the EU perfect? absolutely not. There are many many things that can be improved. My argument is that as a concept is still solid and it should be improved not scrapped. However this tread is about that stupid copyright law so let's not derail it by going on a tangent. I will not waste my...

    The EU Hates Memes

    While hello there crazy conspiracy theorist guy. Did you even read in my post that I am strongly against this law. As a matter of fact I am very strongly pro freedom of speech, and what I posted is not misinformation is simply verifiable fact: The MEP proposing this law is to the right...

    The EU Hates Memes

    While this is clearly a stupid law that will hopefully be struck down or amended (it's not final yet). You might want to consider informing yourself before posting stupid things. This law has been pushed by lobby/interest groups and not by ideological groups. As a matter of fact if you would've...

    Thanks, unfortunately it looks still visibly worse than the original. I need a place to host my pics that keeps the high quality up (I read that smugmug is a good place for this) Maybe it's different for Canon sensors (i'm used to Sony ones) but I take the opposite approach, I underexpose to...
