    Motorola Moto X Force XT1580 32GB Black (FACTORY UNLOCKED) Switched to Project Fi so I have a new Pixel, but this phone was awesome while I used it. FWIW, my single (positive!) Heatware review :)

    Comcast 1TB Internet Cap Is Becoming A Reality

    Not going to happen, at least not for the next 4 years. Not trying to make this a political post but... this is inherently politics. The FCC was headed by a majority body of people (led by Tom Wheeler) that distinctly had public interest in mind. In each and every dissent, Ajit Pai and Michael...

    Google Has Scaled Back Self-Driving Car Ambitions

    I really like the stuff Google does, but they have really piss poor follow through when it comes to nearly all hardware and a lot of software. Project Fi, Google Fiber, Nexus phones, Nest/Protect/Dropcam, Google Voice.... They're too wishy-washy and it seems like every time a project hits a...

    AT&T: Letting Us Buy Time Warner Will Be "Good For Consumers"

    Exactly. And as long as Verizon and Comcast exist as "competition" then the anti-trust suits have little leg to stand on. Pay no attention the illegal collusion between the companies, right?

    Eavesdropping Toys Send What They Hear To A Defense Contractor

    I'd credit Nuance for selling Dragon, but not for creating it. That's a whole other interesting story about Goldman Sachs screwing over people (as usual).

    Consumer Group Wants 'Autopilot' Term Banned From Tesla Marketing

    So your appeal is to dumb down the language to the lowest common denominator, eschewing personal responsibility of ownership and education? That's how you end up with a world described like the Up Goer Five. Alternatively, not all facial tissue is 'Kleenex', not all...

    Why Can’t Silicon Valley Solve Its Diversity Problem?

    How to fix it? For each recruiting event you hold at MIT and Cal, hold one at Howard and Morgan State. For each recruiting event you hold at Barnard and Spelman, hold one at Hampden-Sydney and Morehouse. If you're only recruiting from a very small college pool that YOU "think" is only the...

    Consumer Group Wants 'Autopilot' Term Banned From Tesla Marketing

    So tired of hearing this crap. Bunch of a-holes that can't bother to read a user manual that complain that the word is confusing them. Even Autopilot in a plane doesn't offer "complete route control and avoid all collision possibilities", it requires the pilot to remain aware of his...

    Cyber Monday Is Now Pretty Pointless

    I got a Fitbit Charge 2 for $40 off on Amazon on Cyber Monday, also an Anova Sous Vide for $126 (normally $200). They were both things that I was specifically looking for though, so I was pleased when I saw the price drop. I think just the amount of stuff is overwhelming to search for deals...

    Mark Zuckerberg: Identifying The "Truth" Is Complicated

    This entire election, and culture battle of the last (shit...) 15 years has been what criteria exactly constitutes a "fact." As soon as we as a population started allowing there to be a difference between "liberal facts" and "real facts" in Western media, that was the beginning of our downfall...

    Most Young Millennials Love Piracy and Ad-Blockers

    I really hate how they keep moving the goal post of what a "Millennial" is to suit whatever shit they want to post/gripe about us "young people" keep breaking or not conforming to. Some places it's 18-24, others it's 18-34. I thought I used to be Gen Y, but now I'm in the cusp of the Millennial...

    PC Gamers Are Like Racist Arrogant Twits

    Help Request - pfsense on VirtualBox

    Two virtual NICs in Vbox, but I'm pretty sure I haven't set up VLAN tagging yet. I'm still at the "configuring at command line" phase of things. I've set up DD-WRT on other routers to where I could access their UIs via the network when set up as bridges or APs, and was hoping to do the same...

    Help Request - pfsense on VirtualBox

    Basically what I'm looking to do is to get pfsense running on a VirtualBox instance on my home server just to play around with the UI. I'm brand new to it, and based off reviews I think it would be great to have as my next router solution. At this point I don't want it to actually route...

    Why Isn't it Called No Woman's Sky?

    The "article" was honestly written as satire, but it just wasn't funny. Because it comes from Jezebel it's taken at face value, but they really should've applied their sarcasm tag.

    Almost all Apple products are made in China by Foxconn. We're actually on good terms with South Korea, much better than with China currently from a Cybersercurity standpoint.

    100Gbps DDoS Attacks Now Commonplace

    Part of the problem with banning IPs and people screaming "PATCH OR DIE" is the people that I'm sure a lot of us on this site support. You know the ones. The ones that point to their computer chassis and call it the CPU. Or when you tell them to turn their computer off and back on they press...

    Video Card Vendor Ranking 2016

    Everything I find about Palit is usually from a .fr, .ph, or otherwise out of North America. This isn't supposed to be a "North America only" poll. Four days after creating the poll PowerColor, Sapphire, and VisionTek had zero votes, yet now they do. Vote. Don't vote. I don't care. The people...

    As stated in the OP, they literally wouldn't fit - 10 selections max. As you can also probably tell the list is in alphabetical order and both XFX and Zotac and well, X and Z are at the end of the alphabet. :)

    Video Card Vendor Ranking 2016

    I haven't come across any recent lists of the actual ranking of the vendor/manufacturer of video cards.

    74% of Netflix Subscribers Would Rather Cancel Than See Ads

    Not gonna lie, I stopped using torrents and usenet for movies because of Netflix and Redbox. They offered the content I wanted to see at an affordable price and how I wanted to watch it - Ad free. My incentive for NOT using Usenet again would vanish with a quickness if I had to deal with Ads to...

    Intel X86s Hide Another CPU That Can Take Over Your Machine

Especially in an office where people tend not to put...
