    Lukewarm: Steam Winter Sale [H]as started

    Redout is selling for $7 this weekend. Any thoughts? I don't VR; not sure if that's really needed to fully enjoy the game.

    Grand Theft Auto V 5 - Great White Shark Card Bundle PC for $11.99

    I'm surprised that this still hasn't dropped at < $10 on Steam yet despite all these years.

    Perpetual Free Steam Codes Thread

    Hi Lateralus, I'll take the Bastion Steam key if it's still available. I already have Sins. Thanks!

    Lukewarm: Steam Winter Sale [H]as started

    Is Dirt Rally worth it for $8? It has very positive reviews, unlike Dirt 4. I have a feeling that over the past couple years, the cheap Steam keys one can buy or get for free with sites like Humble Bundle and GMG take away from the winter and summer...

    That guy's got some skills. He might not be Eminem or Mac Lethal, but still pretty fly for a white guy.

    Tesla Owner Sues Over Sudden Acceleration

    I'm going to file this under YAFL (yet another frivolous lawsuit) unless I see some substance behind this claim. LOL at the "damn, son" memes.

    Steam Top 100 Best Sellers of 2016

    Pretty good list, some of the games which I picked up over the year when they went on sale. I'd also like to see how the top 100 match up with their Steam ratings.

    Steam Winter Sale starts on the 22nd of December.

    Normally, the summer and winter Steam sale threads have dozens if not scores of pages of posts. This one petered out at 3. I guess the sales weren't that good. I found better deals on GMG and CD Keys. Steam needs to up their game!

    Do You Pronounce it GIF or JIF?

    The GIF that keeps on giving. :p And it's hard G gigawatts, not "jiggawatts" just b/c that's how Dr. Brown mispronounced it in Back to the Future!

    USPS and UPS shipping rip off

    If you ever ship something via USPS and they ask you what's in the envelope, it it looks like it might just be documents, tell them that's what it is. The rate is a lot cheaper than telling them you're shipping parcel.

    Steam 2016 summer sale is here! runs from June 23rd to July 4th!

    A friend told me Euro Truck Simulator 2 (which is on sale today) is really good. For those who have it, which option do you think I should get, just the bare game or one of the expansion pack packages they offer? FWIW, I've never played a truck simulator game. TIA.

    QNIX QX2710 27" 1440p Monitor $200

    My Overlord monitor hits 120 Hz but slightly whines on certain white screens. I think these QNIX monitors are similar in build material as my Overlord.

    Steam Winter Sale

    Great to hear you'll be back to run such a thread. Yeah, sucks about Steam/Valve doing that this time around. Honestly I've been getting way more games via things like Humble Bundle or free Steam keys that are given out every so often on Slick Deals.

    Why People Are Giving Up On The Apple Watch

    True about the chest straps being a PITA to wear. Well about the kinetic power part. I have a Seiko dress watch whose battery doesn't need to be replaced b/c it runs on kinetic power; the swinging of my wrists. Now obviously that uses a lot less power than a smart watch would. But maybe...

    FrozenCPU Shuts Its Doors

    Funny how the FrozenCPU site is still live. I guess it will continue to be until they stop renewing the domain. Perhaps the ModMyMods folks should buy out that domain and redirect the traffic to their new site.

    USPS and UPS shipping rip off

    Just to update the thread (and it's been a while), I shipped my package via USPS in early Dec. It was 1 lb and 14 oz, so just under 2 pounds. From TX to MD, it cost $8.70. Damn, that was a bit pricey. Dimensions were about 2/3 of a shoe box, basically large enough to hold a pint glass and I...

    Why People Are Giving Up On The Apple Watch

    How accurate is the heart rate monitor for these smart watches? A couple friends who have Fit Bit that have this feature say it's crap. The only reliable ones seem to be those Polar devices that hug one's chest. I guess tracking your sleep can be equated by how much you toss and turn during...

    Why People Are Giving Up On The Apple Watch

    That's good. You have a smart watch so you found out its usefulness. I'm not sure what brand of smart watch you have, but I guess a waterproof one if you use it in the shower. Are the Apple SWs waterproof? Just mentioning Apple since the thread did. If a smart watch could fully replace a...

    Why People Are Giving Up On The Apple Watch

    I'm trying to think how often it would be the case for someone to have a smartwatch on them but not a smartphone. More and more, people are literally tied to the hip with their smartphones. So a smartwatch just seems like a waste of money for redundant notification/alerts.

    MPAA Drops Movie Theater Anti-Piracy Bounty

    Damn, that's a horrible law. I'm also guessing it depends on the state or even city.

    USPS and UPS shipping rip off

    That sucks, but now you know. :( On that note, does anyone with shipping experience with USPS or UPS know how much would it cost me to send something about the size of a shoe box that weighs 2-3 pounds from TX to MD? (Even 1-week shipping will suffice.) I'm guessing $5-10, but wanted to see...

    But if the contract ended, then it should be possible, right? This looks like a pretty nice phone, but killer deal if you can get it at this price.
