    Fallout 4 Recommends an AMD RX 490 for High Resolution Texture Pack

    FO4 sucked. No level of graphics will ever compensate for it's shit dialogue system and lack of impact from player choice.

    Gaming Hardware Needs to Grow Up

    I can see gaming mice as a legitimate thing, more buttons for mapping, etc., but overall I hate the "gaming computer" market BS, especially on things like motherboards. Seriously an extra flashing light or weird shaped motherboard heatsink isn't going to do squat all for making your gaming...

    Microsoft Kills The Ability To Uninstall Stock Apps From Windows 10

    While I agree it's not a hack, it's pretty far from an option where the average person can go, "I don't want to any updates, I'll just click the turn off windows updates button". Most people need help configuring their email client, if you think they would be aware of the command line option to...

    Who's planning to buy Zen?

    From that Article: .....I've seen rumors of 6-core parts with 12 threads, similar to Intel's $600 Core i7-6850K retailing for around $250 and the SR3 - potentially a 4-core part with 8 threads has been rumored to land at around $150.... If that turns out to be true and has Haswell IPC, I'll be...

    Microsoft Kills The Ability To Uninstall Stock Apps From Windows 10

    I stopped updates with windows 10. I don't accept the permission for MS to irreversibly change shit on my PC at their whim, such as removing policies from user access, or like in this case mandating that you are unable to install software you don't want.

    Microsoft Kills The Ability To Uninstall Stock Apps From Windows 10

    I removed all of MS's shit then locked them out of my gaming boot partition. I use Mint most of the time, only use windows for games and VMware vSphere. MS can go eat a dick if they think I'm going to let them push changes to my PC. The first two policies solve the issue, though I have the...

    AT&T Raises Phone Activation Fee Another $5, Now Charges $25

    They waive it if you give them a hard time. A while back it was cheaper with my work discount to get ATT then an MVNO, after spending 45 minutes setting with the sales rep discussing everything they say, the final thing is the Activation fees. I told them, "nevermind, I don't pay activation...

    5G Will Be A Game Changer, Generating Trillions By 2035

    Wireless sucks. If I was offered 100 mbit symetrical ethernet or 1gigabit symetrical wireless (of any variety), I'd take he 100 mbit wire every single time.

    Microsoft Waves “Early Goodbye” To Windows 7, Pushes Windows 10 Upgrades

    Will Mark Zuckerberg Be Our Next President?

    HAHAHA... you think Facebook is a social media company? Facebook is an advertising and data aggregation company. Their goal isn't to make a social media platform, it's to collect data and monetize it. You say Zuckerburg is "what's wrong with facebook", you couldn't be farther from the truth...

    Faux Cat 6 Cable Sold On Amazon “Could Start A Fire”

    CCA (Copper Clad Aluminum) being foisted off as network cabling isn't something new. CCA doesn't meet specifications. Any CCA sold as Cat5e, Cat6, etc. is falsely advertised. Period.

    Woman Having “Bad Day” Drives SUV Into T-Mobile Store

    She claims to have had T-mobile phone insurance. I'm not sure if T-mobile made a mistake such as saying she didn't have it, or if they even offer insurance for phones and if so what the parameters of the agreement are, so I can't comment on that. That being said, the phone dispute and deciding...

    Kaby Lake 7700K vs Sandy Bridge 2600K IPC Review @ [H]

    What can't I be serious about? That I upgrade when the performance difference is large enough and time is not a large factor? Give me 50% more performance and I'll upgrade. If it takes you 8 years to do it then you won't see a penny from me until that time. If you do it in 3 years then I'll...

    Kaby Lake 7700K vs Sandy Bridge 2600K IPC Review @ [H]

    Honestly makes me wonder why Intel doesn't make larger improvements. Is it that they are incapable or that they choose to? I get the feeling it's choice, which doesn't make sense to me. I'll upgrade when something much better comes along, meaning Intel isn't only competing with AMD but is...

    AMD's Ryzen CPUs will launch at or before GDC 2017

    Hoping for a $300 6 core or $380 8 core with Haswell level IPC or better. If that happens I have my money ready. If not, my 2500K will keep chugging along. I have spare a Sandy/Ivy Mobo as well, so I should be able to use this platform for 3 more years if needed. Also, apparently over on...

    RYZEN Demo At CES 2017 Was Running At 3.6 GHz Base Clock, F4 Stepping Can Turbo to 4.0 GHz

    All I can say is that if Intel lowers their prices by a lot to match AMD Zen on price/performance, I will buy the AMD chip. If Intel was gouging just because they could, then I will buy the competitor product for that reason alone.

    Comcast 1TB Internet Cap Is Becoming A Reality

    http://www.autonews.com/article/20160314/OEM/303149977/fiat-chryslers-quality-conundrum It was more a lighthearted reference to the overall general reliability of Chrysler, not your particular vehicle in the driveway. that being said, I'd recommend something from Toyota in your budget :P

    Comcast 1TB Internet Cap Is Becoming A Reality

    How accurate is their measurement? Does the consumer have visibility into the measurement to assure accuracy? What counts as transferred data - IP level headers? transport headers? Then you have to define the quantities - what's 1 GB - 10^9 or 2^30?? What about dropped packets? How about...

    are you going to abandon intel for ryzen?

    How do you expect anyone to answer that question? Outside of it's pending launch soon, Ryzen is an unknown at this point. We don't have prices. We don't have performance data. Your question might as well verbatim read, "Chevy is making a new car, will you buy it?"
