    A California Company Believes It Has Invented a Viable Marijuana Breathalyzer

    I understand people not wanting dangerous people driving on the road with them, but I think the people driving under the influence of Marijuana are near the bottom of that danger scale. Also, seems like people are relating smoking weed to alcohol, which is quite far from the truth for just...

    Why Smartwatches Failed

    Samsung has lte in one model of the gear s3 and it works quite well away from the phone. Girlfriend has one and I don't think I have seen use her regular cell outside the house since. A small, simple yet functional and long lasting watch may be a good selling product.

    So, about that Samsung Bixby Button

    I love my S8. Screen to body is quite amazing. I hope to use this thing for at least two or three years. Originally thought the screen would suck and be totally gimmicky but I really ended up liking it. Best screen so far. You can also just disable the Bixby button and not worry about it? No...

    James Cameron Is Still Very Bullish on 3D

    I have tried 3D so many times and in all different venues (Theater, IMAX, Home, etc.) and always hate the experience. I'm sticking with 2D movies for the foreseeable future. If the new Avatar happens to be 3D and not require glasses, I will try again, but not expecting much.

    Logitech Announces POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System to Recharge Wireless Mice

    Your statement would imply that physics is the only limiting factor in mouse technology but that is not the case. Drivers, software, sensors, etc. starting adding different latency to the overall input of any more. Many things are involved and the overall response time will vary greatly among...

    Logitech Announces POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System to Recharge Wireless Mice

    I recently decided to try all wireless keyboard and mouse again (for the 3rd time) and love it so much this time I will never go back. The last few times I tried I just don't think the technology was up to snuff but that is no longer the case. My mouse is the G900 and it works as good, if not...

    Geoff Keighley: Project Scorpio Is $499

    Strange, I purchased the Xbox One S as a UHD Blu-ray player but some how ended up buying 15+ games? Seems like it is an easy way into the home, and when you have it, you might as well buy some games to play on it. Now Sony lost out on all those game sales from me only because they didn't...

    i7 7700k - what will you be able to upgrade to ?

    Friend needed a system so I sold him my 6700k system and built a 7700k system for myself about a month ago. I will be selling the motherboard/CPU and getting i9 7900x as soon as it is released. 6700k to 7700k did nothing for me, only helped my friend. More cores for me please.

    Geoff Keighley: Project Scorpio Is $499

    If PS4Pro had UHD Blu-ray I would have bought one. With a PC, I can't justify buying a console just play console games anymore. My PS3 was my Blu-ray player, and it was nice that it would play a few games. When I heard about the PS4Pro release I thought it would be my next system, but no...

    I Hate Bixby - You Hate Bixby - We All Hate Bixby

    I have the S8. You can remap the button to Google Now or whatever else you like (dedicated camera?) with an app from the Play store for free (root access not necessary). Alternatively, you could even just disable Bixby and the button doesn't do anything, which is what I did (long press on...

    High Performance to Noise Ratio in Noctua's Next Generation A-Series Fans

    Been running the brown fans from Noctua for as long as I can remember. Great fans. I really do look forward to replacing all of mine with the new ones. The color never bothered me at all, but if the color bothers you, put your computer in a server case inside a rack-mount chassis and the...

    Hollywood Fights Billionaire's Plan to Let You Rent Movies Still in Theaters for $50

    I have a 40" on my desk and a 55" that sits above that. Yes, I would have gone 65"+ but I have no room to mount it as the set would have hit the ceiling or protruded into the doorway. Projectors are not my jam so that doesn't make sense for me. The policy might be for, like you said, people...

    Hollywood Fights Billionaire's Plan to Let You Rent Movies Still in Theaters for $50

    I used to think the sound made the story more enjoyable for me, but it doesn't. I used to like the huge screen size because it added more immersion but also does little for me. I get by just fine with my 55" TV at home under 3ft away with none of the crazy people. Large screen and...

    BOGO.. Samsung S8 direct from Samsung

    Yeah that is a good deal. The return on the rebate is much faster than Tmo and one less line mandatory activation. All good things. I may have done this deal if I saw it sooner but I also would have had to wait on shipping. I deiced to just go with Tmo BOGO and the instant gratification of...

    Samsung UN43KU7500 43" Curved 4K - $449 - BACK ONE DAY ONLY on 5/13

    Samsung UN43KU7500 43" Curved 4K - $449 - BACK ONE DAY ONLY on 5/13

    This is super temping at this price. If I saw this before I purchased 3 of the 6290's, I would have bought 1 KU7500 and only 2 of the 6290s. I am still not sold on curved. Previously I had a Samsung UN40JU7500 and I hated it because of the curve and horrible VA shift. It was also not so...

    I have three 6290s and none of them look anything like the images you posted. You probably have a bad unit and need to get it replaced as that looks abnormal. Best of luck.

    34" Ultrawide isn't THAT amazing...

    I don't think ultrawide is trash but definitely overpriced. When I use my computer, I always use more than just one window/application. Ultrawide is nice to have two documents, web browser windows, or different projects up side by side. I don't think this abnormal by any means. Also, you...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Okay, well I'm sorry I don't know all the brands and model numbers of the TV's with the AU panel. I do also understand that it is the panel we are after here to make this work and that panel may be in some other TV's. I can also tell you the listings on Amazon or most other retailers don't list...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    I have two questions; Should I buy a 39" Seiki sometime soon, for example, when I find a good price, since you are close or would it be better to wait until the project is closer to completion (4K30hz is unusable for me so it would sit until I received your kit)? and, will this be 4K120hz...

    8K TV's available worldwide in 2018

    8K is coming for sure, but I know I'm personally not all that excited about it. This looks to be directed towards "broadcasting" 8K and, unless I missed it and that includes "streaming" (which is where I get all my content), I won't get to experience it anyway. If I was able to receive fiber...

    GameStop: Nintendo Switch Sales "Phenomenal," Could Outpace Wii

    I haven't been able to pick up a Switch anywhere. I'm on the nowinstock list and they sell out faster than I can get to them. Recently purchased an Xbox One S to watch 4k Blu-ray and play some games with the girlfriend. Biggest problem I found is the lack of local two player games for the...

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    So the Xbox supports all of those specifications yes, but doesn't implement them them all concurrently. It will utilize some of those features depending on your current use case. Keep in mind that the current Xbox One S also doesn't support playing video games at 4k, but only 1080. That...

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    No HDMI cable will allow 4:4:4 10bit 4k 60hz from my understanding. Currently HDMI does not have the bandwidth to support it. You can only get 4:4:4 8bit 4k 60hz or 4:2:2 10bit 4k 60hz.

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    I tried that, and tried it again as you suggested. No difference. Taking it out of PC mode just messes with the colors/brightness and changes nothing with the overscan. Oh well.

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    I did choose "PC" mode in my initial setup already and it still has the "overscan" so I can't see the underline with taskbar on bottom.

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    So far so good, but I have one little tiny issue. I can't make out the small blue underline in Windows 10 for open/active programs that are pinned to the taskbar unless I get my eyes way down to the desk perpendicular to the screen. Even then the blue line is super super thin and small as if...

    I picked up two of these yesterday, one for my girlfriend and one for my dad. Made my dad upgrade from a 27" Yamakasi that I gave him years ago as he would always complain about needing more "real estate" on is monitor, and so far he is very unexpectedly pleased. Also, I can confirm it does...

    Xbox One Outsold PlayStation 4 Again

    I wasn't trying to imply that those who buy them don't but I think having it do MORE than just games is important at this point. It isn't like they can't so for the price I think it should. That is all.

    Xbox One Outsold PlayStation 4 Again

    The PS3 played Blu-ray while the 360 did not. The new Xbox One S plays HDBlu-ray, and the PS4 Pro does not. These are the reasons why I purchased a PS3 and will now buy the Xbox One S. I don't think I am alone but I guess I could be? These days I can no longer justify buying a console for...

    Mushkin Previews $500 4TB SSD

    I have a 1TB SSD now and I'm constantly offloading and shuffling stuff to make space. Wish I could have a solid 4TB SSD (Samsung 950 Pro?) for about $500 because there is no way I can justify spending over $1k that it is currently priced at. Just have to wait for prices to drop I guess. PS...

    Anyone who has used both 27/28" 4k and 32/34" 3440*1440 pls

    Yeah, I can't handle 4:2:2 as it bothers the crap out of me on the desktop and 37.3ms was also too much input lag coming from basically zero. 21.1ms is not bad but I don't know why Samsung couldn't figure out how to get 21.1ms input lag AND 4:4:4.

    Anyone who has used both 27/28" 4k and 32/34" 3440*1440 pls

    If I'm not mistaken it has low input lag with 4:2:2 or high input lag with 4:4:4. You get one or the other but not both which was very disappointing to me. Hope I'm wrong. Good luck.

    27" and 4k - I've been somewhat enlightened

    So I totally understand this idea you are describing which is not my issue. My issue is that it doesn't make much sense to think or implement everything this way and it doesn't get implemented in practice like this either. And if I could, I would resize things on my real world desk to be much...
