    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy threatens employees to return to office or "things are probably not going to work out for you"

    My bad, I meant annual leave not sick. I barely tapped into either. Left with 320 hours of SL balance and almost 400 hours of AL which I was going to lose almost half of at the end of this year. And on the vacations I took during lockdowns I made sure I had wi-fi service lol. Not going to lie...

    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy threatens employees to return to office or "things are probably not going to work out for you"

    My cushy government job wants us back in the office full time by the 18th. I put in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. Had no plans on leaving (money is great and so are the benefits) but received an offer I couldn't refuse and removing our WFH was the final straw for me. It was a great 3 years...

    Same, I had a 200lbs Sony WEGA that just didn't move so I listed it for free, first come first serve. RIP the last HDMI CRT.

    Samsung Profits Plunge by 96%

    My Frigidaire range does too but it goes 1-9 then High then Power Boil but the jump from 6 to 7 is significant, everything from 2-5 is roughly the same and I don't see a difference between high and power boil. I wish there was a standard or some temperature display, probably just a cheap range.

    Anticipating the Ethereum merge causing a GPU dump? If that's the case then demand will definitely plummet for retail.

    Nvidia : Market Manipulation

    I have and will continue to wait this market out. I am sick of this pandemic economic strangle. I will continue to eats beans and pasta until something gives.

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    Digital contracts are more powerful than you can imagine. Everything that can be digital will be and in the hands of the individual rather than some bank or financial agent. I can go into explaining all the little details and facets but the internet has done plenty and contrarians that post this...

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    I love coming here and seeing all the boomer talk about NFTs and crypto. You guys better jump on before you get left behind in the next few years. Easy money to be made here as someone who's been on the internet since a kid in the mid 90's, you're in for a revolution. Also Gamestop just...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Scalpers gonna scalp. It makes sense to go with the highest end model in production or just get what you can get.

    Bill Gates predicts our work meetings will move to metaverse in 2-3 years

    My office would send out a top 10 "data users" list every 3 months to try and shame those who just Youtubed/Netflixed all day. Funny thing is I was in the top 3 and still the most productive.

    Yep, I had one of these bad boys It was pretty great until it would randomly stop working on boot up then I just did away with soundcards all together now.

    Tesla Full Self-Driving System's Beta Developer Settings Leaked

    Failure is the mother of success. Nothing gets done without attempting it. It's easy to simulate something on computers, it's different putting in practice.

    Cyberpunk 2077 - Collector's Edition - PC

    I had an issue where the order I placed with Gamestop over a year ago wasn't authorizing the payment method before shipping. Had to call them up to get it fixed, I wonder if that's why Gamestop suddenly has availability.

    New feature to calculate 'productivity scores' turns Microsoft 365 into an full-fledged workplace surveillance tool

    It's disgusting but it would be funny to explain. "Oh John spent all week plotting the same data from the provider on excel? Yeah I just ran custom zone based OCR to capture the fields then used a script that automatically placed all the fields/values into a sortable table." It's an unfortunate...

    New feature to calculate 'productivity scores' turns Microsoft 365 into an full-fledged workplace surveillance tool

    If I do more than an hour of work a week that's a busy week. Haters gonna hate but I've reached peak job efficiency, am the highest paid in my position and constantly praised by how fast I operate. As the old saying goes, work smarter not harder.

    Death Stranding bundled with RTX

    Yeah I can't see this game translating well to KB/M considering how the core mechanics of the game work but we'll see. I'll probably still play with a controller. I can see why a LOT of people would find the game boring, I watched for about 4 hours (20min of gameplay? lol) before I stopped...

    Creative introduces the Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus Pure Edition in a white finish with added RGB effects

    I have $500+ in sound cards just sitting in the closet because the driver issues and random BIOS problems that cause it to sometimes boot disabled were pissing me off.

    How Does the GTX 1080 Ti Stack Up in 2020?

    Launch day 1080 Ti owner here, probably one of the best GPU investments I have made in a long time. Only one I am holding out for is Cyberpunk since I really want to run that one with RTX so will wait for benchmarks on that.

    WTB: Zune 30GB/80GB/120GB

    There was a large homebrew market when it first came out. I remember having emulators and custom apps on it. You can probably still run the Microsoft tools on it and a few programs will sync DRM free music to it. It's still probably one of the best MP3 players I ever had and such a smooth interface.

    comptia opposes right to repair bill

    Yeah a lot depends on the branch of government as well. The DoD tends to function with decades old software that's patched just barely enough to function on a secure level. Where I worked we were constantly involved in beta deployments for the OS and various applications so we weren't more than...

    comptia opposes right to repair bill

    The wording on the ending part is what leaves it open. 90% of government jobs are worded like this. I can tell you from experience they don't care if you have a G.E.D. as long as you have the skills/experience/questionnaire knowledge to hit the high point criteria for your resume to be...

    comptia opposes right to repair bill

    Not to mention your job tends to evolve with tech. The guy who's been doing database work from 2010-2020 who hasn't redone his certs since 2005 would probably be more if not just as qualified as the guy with 5 years of experience and certs from 2015.
