    New World Amazon Studios MMORPG

    made it to lvl 25 and so far I like it. As much as I want to hate it for being owned by Lex Luthor I cant. The trading post interface needs work but that is the biggest complaint I have about it. My RX580 is only getting me 35-40fps in town and 50-60fps out of town, so I may need a upgrade at...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    This seems cheap. I'm looking at $2000 for a tower and dish, plus $75 per month for a local WISP provider. speed for that is 15Mbps If it can perform, then $500 is worth every single penny. And if they dont pull the "introductory price" then double the price after the first year (BS that...

    Microsoft says yes to future encrypted DNS requests in Windows

    I wonder if this will impact PiHole? I'm guessing some master DNS server that holds the keys to everything? I'll have to read up on it.

    Picard Will Lead "Radically Altered" Life in New Star Trek Series

    Not something i'm interested in. Swords? really? When I watch ST I want to seen ingenious uses of tech, not LOTR in space.

    Former NASA Engineer Makes a Box That Tortures Package Thieves

    Would not surprise me if he gets hit with a lawsuit. "Chemical bomb gave my kid asthma attack that hospitalized them!" My opinion is that if your not going to really go all out and make it a small explosive device, why even bother and risk a lawsuit. If your going to make a boobytrap make one...

    Australia Passes World's First Anti Encryption Law

    Easy way to handle this. Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc all just say they cannot comply with the law and give the ultimatum that they will pull out of Australia entirely if required.

    Venom Is a Waste of Tom Hardy's Talent and Your Time According to Reviews

    Yup. Needs the spiderman backstory. A whole spiderman movie could be made with the symbiote bonding with Brock at the end. Then do a Venom movie. And the Venom movie should be labeled a horror movie its so scary. Hardy would have gotten 2 movies out of the deal, and if it worked well...

    Venom Trailer #2 Is Out

    Maybe. If the story is worthy I can over look a lot. The CGI quality isn't nearly as important to me.

    Disney Wants to Dump Star Wars Boss Kathleen Kennedy, but There’s a Problem

    HOW has no one made an reference like "Time for Order 66 of Kennedy and her followers". You guys are slipping. I'd expect a Order 66 meme with Iger by now.

    Apple Signs Deal With Volkswagen for Driverless Cars

    Wonder if Apple can help them hide their emissions cheating better? At the very least it will be good to have the Apple brand take some of the blame on any future scandals, especially if those scandals are cars running people down. Now that I think about it. Apple could put some code into...

    Consumers Turn Against Skype Since Microsoft Acquisition

    I hate most of what Microsoft has done lately, but I honestly cannot gripe about Skype. I do wish the GUI had a font size control. But after I changed the default contact list to 'name only' it really helped clean it up. But the amount of space between lines/contacts is a waste of real...

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    I cant listen to him talk without getting annoyed. Congress might actually do something to him, if they have to listen to that for hours on end. I do find it hilarious that selling user data has been going on for well over a decade by almost every country and organization you could name...

    Glorious Madman Stuffs a Tesla Drivetrain into a 1981 Honda Accord

    The President Is Sending NASA Back to the Moon

    Going to the moon takes humans outside the magnetosphere of the earth (at times), and that is mostly uncharted territory. Yes the humans that went to moon went outside it, but not for any real length of time. Having a moon base opens up a TON of experiments that will be needed for any mars...

    J.J. Abrams to Write and Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

    Correct. And I might want to let that slide if it didn't have so many characters from the last (Ep6) movie. Its obvious they want you to think of this as a continuation of the story, but they want your imagination to fill in the gaps. IMO that is just crap story telling. Its obvious the...

    J.J. Abrams to Write and Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

    The vast majority of his movies are not good. I have not liked a single one of his ST movies and TFA was pretty much crap. The story left TONS of holes about the state of the galaxy, and the "super weapon" was an unimaginative insult to anyone with half a brain. The comparisons that it was...

    Scrap Dealer Finds Apollo-Era NASA Computers In Deceased Engineers Basement

    Those would be great for an IT/man cave! (or woman cave, for you IT girls) I bet they are worth quite a bit! And a CRANE??? Seriously!? 4 guys that are not weaklings can move a lot with a dolly.

    I AM BANE!!! I Break People, Mom

    I can see this being used at work. We have a lot of doctors/pharmacists lined up in cubicles doing telehealth Skype calls. Office space cost a crap load of money, and if this helps keep us hippa compliant then I bet they buy them. Even if its just as an excuse to say "we bough these for...

    Samsung Galaxy 8 Launches Today and the Tame Apple Press is Terrified

    I disagree. Their #1 weakness is the shitty software!! I would rather have exploding phones than deal with the Samsung UI/crapware they install. I'm done with Samsung solely because of that. I love Qi charging and that was the only thing keeping me on Samsung, but now I've had enough. If...

    San Francisco University Lays Off IT Workers; Jobs Head to India

    I would have transferred the jobs to another part of the country. Move them to OKC and pay them 90-100k. Other than moving they wouldn't have much to bitch about. Cost of living would drop drastically and they wouldn't have to deal with being in CA. OKC would benefit from suddenly having a...

    Fire Department Faces $73K Fee From Verizon To Move Phone Cable

    If it really is a 1200 pair cable and some fiber cable, then 73k might be a tad high, but not to bad. The real question is why does a small VFD have a 1200 pair POT cable ran to it? Hell, at work we routinely pay ATT 5 figures just for installation fees. (ASE circuits). and that's no where...

    Can Windows 10 Survive In A World Of Free Operating Systems

    What kills me for Linux is I still cannot find a solution for it like Active Directory. Being able to manage GPO & GPP for desktops is mandatory, and without something similar for Linux is just a joke.
