    RMA my gtx 680?

    You flashed a Zotac w/ an EVGA BIOS, and want to RMA a perfectly running card? Warranty likely voided. Also, don't be a douche. RMA is for a broken product. It screws up legit customers and Fry's, higher prices and repeal of warranties for those w/ a legit need. :rolleyes:

    AT&T Offers User A Settlement in Throttling Case

    I'm conflicted here... Feck AT&T, but I know the guy in the story,if I saw him today, i'd deck him. ps he was popped for a gta in the early 90s, maybe 89'ish (got off as a minor I think though). also stole parts off my relative's car while it was@ the high school auto shop (reason for said decking).

    Google Combining Your User Data

    Yeah, if you have a bit of disposable income to help shield yourself, domain registration costs are minimal, especially if you go for very obscure names/TLDs.... And a cheap hosting package to get the email/SMTP stuff (email only hosting perhaps), minimal yearly outlay there. To use GoCrappy as...

    Ford Adds Mobile Phone Blocking to My Key

    Depends on what your definition of is, is, I suppose. I can't speak for the rest of the country, but it's mentioned in the DMV handbook in CA that going slower than traffic is a) illegal/ticketable and b) dangerous. Unless it's wet, icy, foggy, etc, there's absolutely no reason to be going 20mph...

    The Truth About Steve Jobs' License Plate

    It's got nothing to do with paying registration fees - that's always done @ point of sale. Considering the secrecy around his life, and Apple for that matter, the why's are pretty clear... He simply didn't want to put 2 metal targets on his car to identify him driving around. Douchey, but hey...

    SAPPHIRE TOXIC HD6950 Video Card Review @ [H]

    And for anyone wondering, I checked back into an old review (inc. a 580), the review rigs are the same/very close, and w/ the 580, ref./stock clocked, the rig pulled 505w, vs. the 463w quoted here for the 1536 shader BIOS.

    T-Mobile Drops Throttling for Overage Fees

    Well, at least they're capping it at $30 :(. Better than a $20,000 bill. Seriously though, the people that are elected to serve us need a swift kick in the ass, 10c per meg, probably cost them 10c per gig, if that. The Bells were broken up for much the same reasons that make it high time to do...
