    Google Helping To Protect Fair Use on YouTube

    Agreed. It's hard to not have some interest in some way. I don't smoke marijuana, but I support full legalization because prohibitions don't work, for one.

    Struggling to play video games .

    For me, it comes and goes. Sometimes, I'm just too busy with life (married, 3 kids, being a responsible adult), or I just don't feel like it. Sometimes I've not gotten into something intially but later gone back and "OMGWTFBBQ! This is AMAZING!". It's a hobby. Doesn't mean I'm doing it every...

    Xbox One November Update Adds New Dashboard And Backward Compatibility

    It comes down to what games you're playing and what platform you have people playing them on. The Xbox One is not a straight gaming console. It's a media system and that's the angle Microsoft went with it. I know more people on the Xbox than Playstation, so between that and having access to Halo...

    Can Apple TV Shake Up Living Room Gaming?

    They have some clout. It may not be in this area, but if they fuse iGame and Apple TV and pull it off, that could make it a good competitor for the Xbox and Playstation as a media device. Content is going to be a huge thing if they have CoD and Battlefield versus Angry Birds and Bejeweled. I'm...

    Windows 10: Your thoughts so far?

    While I haven't gone through everything, everything that I have tried works without issue. Two Windows 7 systems were upgraded without issue. Now, once my wife's Windows 8 laptop gets it, that will be better.

    Using iPhones As Brake Pads

    More money than brains, apparently. I'm no car expert, but I'm pretty sure they figured out the brake pads some time back. Especially the Germans.

    Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag Pretty good so far.

    New Zealand Makes Cyberbullying A Crime

    Coming from the religious end, I can't see this ending well. If you have free speech, you run the risk of something being said that you don't like. Trying to shut that down ends up being worse because it's only certain things that have protection and the whole thing snowballs. You don't have...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda

    I'm stoked! While I couldn't get into the original so much, 2 & 3 have been a blast for me, so I am definitely waiting for a new entry.

    Things To Do For Memorial Day

    "I don't normally have a hamburger, a hot dog and a bratwurst, but it is the 4th of July. It's what the Founding Fathers would want!" Jim Gaffigan Working in retail, this means beer sales. Time for you bastards to get mad about them A-rabs that don't like the flag, but let me dry my ass with...

    Would You Rather Lose A Finger Or Your Internet

    Same here. But, I do wonder, and I did not read the article because I just woke up, if this factors in people that need access as part of their job. I have an e-mail account, but unless I'm covering one role, it's not necessary to do my job. If I am, I absolutely need to have these reports...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I've been putting some time in Galaxy at War in Mass Effect 3 for a better EMS rating. I only have 2 more missions this game, and I still thoroughly enjoy it.

    Switching Operating Systems Is Almost Never The Answer

    The article is right. Switching just to switch is a bad idea. To say, no, never do it is foolish as well. XP had a good run, but with support from Microsoft gone, you're asking for trouble. I don't think there's that one OS to rule them all. What you're going to do and familiarity with an OS is...

    Sony Sends Pre-Emptive Threat Letter To Journalists

    Sony has bad PR, like the rootkit debacle. I think they have the right to protect their products and IP. They do not, however, have the right to damage my property in doing so. Unfortunately, that combined with clumsy and/or bad PR and other press, it doesn't exude anything svelt.

    HX520 to 330W Antec unit for Haswell?

    I have a project I'd like to do, but I don't want to do a lot of work for nothing. Basically, I have an Ubuntu 14.04LTS box running the Gigabyte 1037U mITX motherboard with an integrated Celeron and NM70 chipset. I have a couple hard drives, a 4GB 1066 DDR3 Mushkin RAM, and an optical drive...

    Gears of War in developement yet

    I'm hoping for a good GoW game myself. Loved 1-3, but Judgement was disappointing. I'm definitely keeping my ears up for any news on the next game now that I have an Xbox One.

    Most and Least Respected Game Companies

    I like most of what I've seen from Visceral Games, although BF:Hardline was pretty unimpressive. I know people here really dislike EA, but a lot of the stuff I've been playing has been from the EA umbrella. The games themselves keep beckoning me to play and play again. Just got off my Mass...

    Running XFire with 7850 & 6750?

    I know that AMD is fairly liberal with what cards can be run in Crossfire, but I wasn't sure if I could run my 6750 in Crossfire with the 7850 I have in my main rig now. I've seen some charts, but it was only on whether a bridge was required. I don't have a bridge, but I don't see acquiring one...

    Share Your Intel Pentium G3258 OC and Settings

    I have mine done {S}oft with OC Genie at 4.3GHz. I haven't really messed around to get a higher clock. But I know the Command Center app will allow me to adjust it on the fly if I feel like doing something for no good reason. Totally unnecessary, but awesome all the same.

    Card reccomendation for 2.1 and front panel header

    I'm considering putting in a sound card to avoid some noise coming through on my speakers. I have a set of Creative 2200 2.1 speakers and use the front panel on my Fractal XL R2 if I use headphones. As long as I have a front panel connection, I'm not picky either way.

    The [H] Post Pictures of your ManCave

    Yeah, it was my wife's, but it became a full-fledged diaper depot when we started having kids. We're looking at the end of that road, so about a year ago, I commandeered half of it for console stuff. It feels much like Sauder furniture, but I'm not sure if it is or came with the package. :D

    Government having more control of the internet? Yeah, no thanks. They let the Comcast/Time Warner thing go through, and somehow, you guys think Net Neutrality is going to make it better?

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Is that the original Deus Ex or Human Revolution? Either one is good, but I still think the original had the most depth. Dead Space right now.

    FAA Finally Outlines Drone Regulations for Commercial Use

    Weekends=people won't notice. I would suspect the FAA has only begrudgingly done it or didn't want to set off waves with the airlines. Or just didn't see the reason for the fuss.

    Chevy to Produce the $30K Tesla-Fighting Bolt EV

    IMO, until you have a decent sedan or SUV EV, it's not going to really get past a niche stage. However, I do understand that's not the immediate goal. The direction we want to see in an EV isn't there yet, nor is country-wide infrastructure like we have with gas stations.

    Motherboard Brands? MSI a good one?

    I've found MSI to be a solid choice through the years and have had a few of them along side Asus and Gigabyte and always end up returning to one of those brands. I'm not one to be exclusively one brand, but I do go with ones I feel are reliable options. MSI is one of those and would recommend...

    Do you think too many videogames out there will put themselves out of the Market

    I agree. It seems that if you casually play MP on CoD or BF, if you drop out for a few months or, like me, pop in and out occasionally, BOOM! the community has moved on.
