    Apple to make the App Store less intuitive with more prompts to level the playing field, accidently rolls it out ahead of ruling.

    I know it's not happening and all, but what a great way to teach those stupid Europeans to stop voting for politicians that Apple can't buy.

    Oh Samsung, you had one chance to redeem yourself......Tech cuts guy's TV to void warranty and Reddit removes video from the post.

    Samsung seems to be in a fast race to the bottom with LG these days. They have a ways to go before they make the kind of garbage that LG does, but they're trying!

    Goodbye Origin - EA App is now in session

    I guess this is a necro, the amateur forum cops might hunt you down but.. I found the thing to be utterly unusable. I couldn't get it to be stable enough to run the games I own. Thank goodness the game that lead me to reinstall it was purchased through Steam. I never got to play it.

    OK, so apparently, as of now there are people that have lost their jobs that still don't know it. edit: Now is 2024-01-26 3pm eastern That's disgusting, there are less awful ways to do awful things. This isn't it.

    Microsoft Lays Off 1,900 Activision Blizzard And Xbox Employees

    Serving two masters when one of them has no voice in the company yet would paralyze any team. Forget the fact that Blizzard has had a very hard time making games for years now.

    Microsoft Lays Off 1,900 Activision Blizzard And Xbox Employees

    Think of all the publishing and corporate roles that were duplicated. It's going to be interesting to see where the axe fell. Duplication doesn't mean equivalency of course, dumb slashing can gut very specific and capable institutional knowledge, I'm assuming(hoping) they didn't rush this for...

    Microsoft Lays Off 1,900 Activision Blizzard And Xbox Employees

    ABK had a ludicrous number of employees before the buyout, I read 17k(?) total or some silly number. I don't know which divisions are laid out by these, or how many were there right at buyout time, but there will have been a shit-load of duplicate divisions between MS and ABK. Again, I don't...

    Apple wants $73 million from Epic

    Kidding aside, I think the Google loss has something to do with how inconsistently Google's fees are applied to various companies. Like, sweetheart deals to "convince" large companies to not set up their own stores on Android or some such. I think it came down to Google leaving a paper trail of...

    AI Accelerator Cards in Desktops?

    Once all the sleaze bag grifting calms down machine learning will be an incredibly powerful tool for people. In the meantime grifters will use AI to make almost everything a little worse than it was before.

    The Apple Vision Pro goes on sale in the US on February 2 for $3,499

    I think they'll make a lot more money off of the "new maxed out iPhone every single year" set than they will developers, that's why they've made it so public and available. Apple has had some great products, god knows I own a bunch of them. There's a certain subset of Apple customers that are...

    Some Microsoft hardware is coming back

    I used to love those buckling spring keyboards, especially back when they were still called "Catastrophic Buckling Spring". I still have a couple of them, one's in the box. Today's mechanical switches have surpassed them, but it took 30 years.

    It could be sampling, or sample control. I seldom assume the worst of a person with a quality reputation. I do, however, always view the actions of a corporation with suspicion. Even great companies can have shitty people on board. I'm not saying it's either, but we can wait a little while...

    Intel "Core Truths" calls out AMD rebranding of old CPU architectures

    The only thing I can't figure out is which tech company has the most (deliberately) confusing naming scheme. They won't get one over on us very often, but these deliberately misleading product names are to confuse or outright fool the off-the-shelf BestBuy sort of shoppers.
