    70 inch Samsung $549 @ BB

    I've been looking at 75" TVs the last couple of weeks and considered this Samsung 70". After reading reviews of other Samsungs, more expensive, it kind of scared me off. There seems to be a lot of problems with Samsungs. If I get something, it will probably be the 75" Hisense Best Buy has had on...

    Upgrading to Windows 10

    What is the current state of going to Windows 10? I know that even after the free period ended you were still able to do it, and every time I've installed Windows 10 from scratch I've been able to use a 7 or 8 key to activate it. My nephew wants me to install 10 on his wife's notebook that has 8...

    Antec HSG750 Bronze or something else?

    I ended up going with the Antec since no one had responded shortly after posting. From what I gathered the Antec is made by Seasonic. When reading reviews it gets confusing because even though I hear how good Corsair and EVGA is, I read several on the problems people had, too. Hopefully it will...

    Antec HSG750 Bronze or something else?

    I'm looking to buy my son a new power supply. He's running a Ryzen 1700 and an RTX 2070, 2 x 8gb RAM, 2 hard drives, and an m.2 SSD. I was looking at the Antec HSG750 on newegg, It doesn't have...

    EVGA 2070 blackouts

    Only on a TV. To me, faulty and glitchy is not the same. Faulty means something is failing. Glitchy means there is a problem with drivers, bug in software, etc. I've had plenty of problems in the past with different hardware that was fixed by driver updates, Windows update, or game update.

    EVGA 2070 blackouts

    My son decided he wanted to replace his 960, so he decided on the EVGA RTX 2070 Black Gaming card. After playing some games he's told me that he has experienced random black screens. He says it will go black for a few seconds and then return to normal. He is using the latest nvidia drivers. He...

    Electric Cars Likely Won't Save You Money

    Unless it's a truck. Those damn things hold a value like nothing I've ever seen. In 2014 I had to replace a Mountaineer that was totaled, and I decided to replace it with a 4 door truck. Every truck I looked at was high miles and high dollars. I ended up getting an 07 Honda Ridgeline with...

    Not really. They didn't do enough with it in my opinion.

    Is Netflix Planning the Ultimate Super Bowl Surprise with “Cloverfield” Sequel?

    I just read the description of the movie on Netflix. I don't understand how you take 3 movies that are supposed to be related and none of them deal with any of the same material.

    Overwatch League Pro Suspended for Homophobic Insult against Opponent

    The remarks were not homophobic or anti-gay. They were just inappropriate trash talk. If he had said, "Go eat twat," would it have been labled anti-hetero?

    NVIDIA Wants Retailers to Sell GeForce GPUs to Gamers, Not Miners

    I applaud nvidia's comments here, even though they may not mean much. I wish they could somehow bork their cards for mining, or somehow make mining-speccific cards. I don't really get the increased prices. New consoles are always scarce upon release but their price doesn't increase just because...

    Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Are the graphics on this game bad? I played a demo of this in Target on a Switch they had set up, and it looked terrible. It was not what I was expecting. I don't know if something was wrong with Target's display or what. The game was kind of giving me a headache. Trees were rendering as I ran...

    Microsoft Resumes Meltdown & Spectre Updates for AMD Devices

    Last week I had my PC on and as I was walking through the bedroom I noticed it was updating. Afterward, I started having trouble with my mouse being intermittent. I'd move it across the screen and it would pause and then jump over. After a restart it was fine again, until it wasn't. At first I...

    Which NBA 2k game is best?

    I bought NBA Live 18 for PS4 for less than $20 with GCU from Best Buy before Christmas. I saw it in the PSN store for $10 a few weeks ago. I don't play a lot so I figured for the price I would go with it over the $60 2k game.

    Microsoft Meltdown/Spectre Patch May Bork Athlon Systems

    I just looked at an article online written March 1, 2016 that talked about AMD announcing the Athlon x4 880k. It hasn't even been 2 years since it's release. While I know they may not be manufacturing the chips any more, I don't think it should be considered obsolete at this point. AMD supported...

    Microsoft Meltdown/Spectre Patch May Bork Athlon Systems

    I tried using Linux last year on some old PCs that I was given, and I was going to give them to some people for Kodi. But they did not run any better than they did with Windows. I think I tried Mint and maybe Ubuntu. Someone mentioned 7 vs dad's Core 2 Duo running 7 would come to a halt...

    Microsoft Meltdown/Spectre Patch May Bork Athlon Systems

    But aren't the FM2+ x4 cpu's called Athlon, which would still be usable. I believe my AM1 Kabini cpu is an Athlon.

    Intel's CEO Sold $24 Million In Stock After Learning About Security Flaw

    Yes, I know the definition of insider trading. That's what I'm saying; it would be hard if someone opens your door and says, "Hey boss, just discovered our product has a huge flaw that is going to cost us big time...I'm going to lunch," that you just have to take it on the chin.

    Intel's CEO Sold $24 Million In Stock After Learning About Security Flaw

    What are people in these situations supposed to do? If you knew you may lose a lot of money you're supposed to just sit there? It's like knowing you're going to get punched in the face and instead of moving left or right you just take it.

    PS4 Jailbreak Might be Coming Soon

    The PS4 remote is not as good as the PS3. I've read a lot of reviews on the PS4 remote, and it doesn't control some apps. It also will not turn the PS4 on. This fact alone makes it inferior to the PS3 as a media player. They recently released another remote for it that corrects a lot of the...

    Former Pentagon X-Files Chief: Existence of UFOs “Proved beyond Reasonable Doubt”

    I assume he was talking about alien UFOs since it mentioned that he "warned nations". I assume nations would always be alert of any kind of terrestrial aircraft.

    “The Last Jedi” Is the Most Divisive Star Wars Movie Between Fans and Critics

    It seems a lot of other people have the same feelings as me on the movie. Here's the making the movie that Johnson made it boils down to the simple fact that he was selfish. 99% of Star Wars fans could have came up with certain elements to put in the movie that would've been...

    “The Last Jedi” Is the Most Divisive Star Wars Movie Between Fans and Critics

    For me, it was the way she went back to the ship. It just did not look right at all. I think it would have looked a lot better if she had pulled the ship toward her rather than looking like she was flying in space.

    “The Last Jedi” Is the Most Divisive Star Wars Movie Between Fans and Critics

    It seems to me the people behind the movies are intent on not giving the fans what they'd like to see. "We know you'd like to see 'this', but we're not going to do that." I waited since Return of the Jedi to see what happened afterwards, and we end up with the First Order who is almost a carbon...

    “The Last Jedi” Is the Most Divisive Star Wars Movie Between Fans and Critics

    This was by far my least favorite Star Wars movie. If this wasn't Star Wars, I'd give it a thumbs down. But just for the fact it's Star Wars I'll say it was enjoyable. It made me realize how much I enjoyed the prequels. There is so much either wrong or out of character (Hux and Poe's...

    Japan Hopes “Go Home” Drones Will End Country’s Overtime Binge

    I worked for a company here in Virginia that was owned and operated by the Japanese. There were 3 or 4 of them, and they'd get there about 7 am and would stay long after we left at 4 pm. We also weren't supposed to talk the entire 8 hours.

    Netflix Is Not Going to Kill Piracy, Research Suggests

    When Netflix started offering it's own content it was OK to have an alternative to the shows you already knew. Now everything that shows in my tiles are Netflix originals. I think eventually it's just going to be their stuff. At that point, I'm out.

    Employee Uses Snack Bags as “Faraday Cage” to Hide His Whereabouts

    I like it when people find a way to circumvent the system like this. The company I used to work at installed this program on our PC that was supposed to keep us off websites. The only thing was it screwed up Outlook Express for some reason. After you checked your email once, if you tried again...

    Black Friday 2017: More Consumers Want Laptops than Smartphones

    No one I know buys a phone outright. They wait until their contract is up and then sign up for a new deal and finance a new phone. Tablets don't intrigue me any more. At this point it's like seeing a DVD player for sale. But to be fair, I don't hear anyone saying they want a laptop either.

    Tesla Is a “Hotbed for Racist Behavior,” Worker Claims in Suit

At first, my thoughts were, "Terrible". But at this point when it's someone different every time it...

    New Star Wars Trilogy Announced, Created by Rian Johnson

    I never read any of the books. To me, if it didn't happen on-screen, it didn't happen. So I don't have a problem with them coming up with a new story (even if people say it was a copy of A New Hope). I like see characters I know. So even though I liked Rogue One, I want to keep seeing how the...
