    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    LOL. You're funny. As you argue this point, did it occur to you that the electricity for the computer, mobile devices, website, internet, and everything else used by everyone on the planet is likely more usage than the smattering of EV out there? With your logic, I hope to fuck you live in...

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    So instead of embracing what is clearly the way forward from an energy perspective, you'd rather dig in and hold us back? Because they'd never develop an electric based truck, right?

    Microsoft to Kill Off OneNote’s Desktop App

    Tesla Autopilot Nearly Recreates Fatal Crash

    You know what system of transportation has great autopilot? MASS TRANSIT. We need more light rails and other similar options. Or sure, continue to figure out how to pack an ever growing population into one car each and have roads/infrastructure to support it.

    Self-Driving Uber Car Kills Arizona Pedestrian

    Live in the PHX area and can tell you Tempe is probably a tough challenge for ANY driver, automated or human. There are a ton of ASU kids who walk and ride around that area, and I can assure you not all of them know or follow the rules. Add to that the fact they get drunk in the same area and...

    Youtube Bans Bump-stock Gun Mod Videos

    Everyone brings up Australia, but we have a shitload more guns, a large industry built around recreational shooting, and a few other considerations to deal with....including the Constitution. But it's easier to say Australia did it and toss shame around I guess.

    Microsoft Claims 71% Of Windows 10 Users Are Happy With Telemetry

    I'm sure our org will bring that number down a bit when we roll ~10k systems with it OFF. :) (correction - set to 'basic')

    NVIDIA White Paper Details Multi-Chip Module GPU Design

    From a 30,000 foot view, perhaps. However, I would fully expect a design to be tailored to the desired end result. There is likely low expectation of CF/SLI in GPU design currently - it may get used, but by and large you'll see single GPU deployments. So why waste a TON of design time, just make...

    NVIDIA White Paper Details Multi-Chip Module GPU Design

    Ehh, it's a bit different. Ryzen/Threadripper were built around the fabric architecture, whereas CF/SLI is just allowing two separate entities talk/work in tandem. Even the smallest Ryzen/Epyc CPU has the fabric, whereas in the other scenario you'd just have a single GPU.

    It's Still Difficult to Just Buy a Google Pixel Today, and That's Insane

    No Samsung fuckery with the UI (or other vendors for that matter), near instant updates at release, and in general a reliable experience that doesn't degrade much over time. Any hardware running Pure Android (the Pixel being one) offers this, but the Pixel has the added benefit of being...

    As Streaming Booms, Songs Are Getting Faster

    I think more or less what I'm getting at is that the shortening of songs has nothing to do with art and more to do with getting wider airplay to make money. This is pushed by the industry obviously, which I think is a shitty way to influence music.

    As Streaming Booms, Songs Are Getting Faster

    I did think before posting - I would rather hear a song as an artist intended, not something chopped down to appease the ever falling attention span of folks like yourself. But glad you are happy with your 2 minute jingles.

    Tesla Model X Driver Blames Autopilot for Insane Collision with Semi-Truck

    Aircraft autopilot systems don't really avoid collisions - more like cruise control + navigation. They have the means to detect (TA/TCAS/doppler/transponders/etc.) and that does get fed to AP, but really it's meant to cruise and the pilot should be observing at all times to quickly take control.

    Tesla Model X Driver Blames Autopilot for Insane Collision with Semi-Truck

    Worked on aircraft - autopilot is a function pilots turn on from the seat, and they stay in the seat (at least one at all times). Autopilot on aircraft also kicks off in certain conditions, so remaining alert is crucial. So it was never meant to mean "fully autonomous" as people think.

    AMD’s Vega & Ryzen “Capsaicin & Cream” Live Event

    Given HardOCP existed well before reddit did, I'd say they've been a good source of info for far longer. And there is a dedicated AMD forum at H, in case you missed it. It's been there for a very, very long time. Two even, if you count CPU and Video Card.

    Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” Release Candidate 4

    I have Plex in a dual core VM and have two FireTVs - transcoding has never been much of an issue. It does have the support to transcode ahead of time. Sounds like maybe your source material was more the issue?

    Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” Release Candidate 4

    I've always felt Kodi is a lot of work vs. Plex is damn near zero touch. I understand Plex doesn't do everything Kodi does, but if you have FireTV, 90% of the media options are already there. Add an HDHomerun device and it's even better it seems.

    Building a Budget PC with the Radeon RX 460: Part 1

    Definitely. I bought a Dell 780 SFF from Ebay for $160. i5 2400, 4GB, 250GB, w/Win 7 Pro. My use case was for an ESXi host, but definitely options out there.

    Amazon To Start Selling Actual FireTV TVs

    Google Reportedly Launching Huawei-Made 7″ Android Tablet

    XFX Radeon RX 460 Double Dissipation Review @ [H]

    So vendors aren't considering processor count, memory count, etc. when determining models and where they fall in the lineup? I think what you meant to say is "In my opinion....". The industry clearly has a way of grouping cards into classes based on other metrics and assigns model numbers that...

    You do realize that the cards are slotted into classes, and that all three are in the same class? Or was bitching just for the sake of bitching more important?

    Microsoft Will Make Steam "Progressively Worse" With Windows 10 Patches

    You are comparing in game UI development to the underlying code. They've had to do multiple UI's for a long time now. What I'm talking about is the same underlying code for all systems - something that has not been used as of yet to my knowledge. Up until the current gen consoles, you'd have 3...

    Microsoft Will Make Steam "Progressively Worse" With Windows 10 Patches

    Ah, but now we have an environment that if you have a universal API that provides decent performance on mobile/PC/console in one shot...very worth the time. And that is more the case these days with consoles being x86.

    Microsoft Will Make Steam "Progressively Worse" With Windows 10 Patches

    SCCM downloads via WSUS, and then distributes and installs them on lots of systems (in my case about 10k+). If this process took hours people would lose their minds. Perhaps there is something up on your systems that is causing the delay? Or slow ISP?
