    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Assuming this passes into law, which it won't, and then assuming it passes a first amendment challenge, which it won't, all it will mean is that Facebook won't offer its services to anyone residing in Florida. Same for every other social media platform.

    MLB Tests Trackman Computer System to Inform Umpires of Balls and Strikes

    I like it. Watch any game with the box that shows where the pitches land and its obvious that there's a ton of missed calls, and a lot of time, just bias, whether unconscious or conscious. An truly impartial judge of the strikezone will only help, assuming it doesn't forget to call pitches.

    Windows 10: New Study Shows Home Edition Users Are Baffled by Updates

    And I will never install that operating system on my hardware. I will sooner completely firewall off Microsoft's update servers from my network so that my computer never even knows that an update is available than let my computers be updated at the whim of anyone else. I'll temporarily remove...

    NVIDIA and AMD Are Shipping Fewer GPUs as Retailers Sit on Inventory

    I also use the G9X still, had a G9 that I wore out before this. I remember when the "Call of Duty MW3" version was $15 cheaper for the exact same mouse as the regular Logitech version. Now they're all ridiculously priced on Ebay and out of print by Logitech.

    Zilog Z8000 Architect Passes Away

    My family's first computer was a Heathkit H88; my dad took over the ping pong table in the basement to solder it together. It used the Z80. And we never got the ping pong table back, from then on it was used as a very large storage table. My dad still has that computer, but it hasn't worked in...

    To paraphrase Sigmund Freud, sometimes toxicity is just toxicity. And I'd definitely say this is one of those times. I mean come on, this woman gamer is virtue signaling, to herself?

    They have a huge cushion of cash that ensures the game will get made. That's the real headline, sorry if some of you can't handle the truth. They bring in a very consistent amount of money every year, the only way they're in any sort of trouble at all is if that suddenly stops. And there's...
