    Real World Weather Will Effect Future Pokemon Go Gameplay

    I quit playing a long time ago, mostly because they kept lowering the max speed until it was too slow for me to get any credit on my bike. Hell, you can't even jog at a decent pace and get credit anymore. I understand they are trying to keep people from driving and playing, but its gotten...

    Bitcoin Price Soars above $5,000 to Record High

    Really wish I had just left my BFL miner going for another year. It may have been mining at a loss for a while, but even if I managed another coin or 2 it would have been worth it.

    Bitcoin Price Soars above $5,000 to Record High

    Oh I'm sure. To be fair, the last bitcoins I had did pay for all the Christmas presents for the kids that year (2013)

    Bitcoin Price Soars above $5,000 to Record High

    I first got into bitcoins shortly after the first peak around $32 watched it drop down to around $2 when I shut off my miners the first time. Sold off my 250 bitcoins for about $1000 when it got back up to around $4. Continued to mine for quite a while, wound up getting out when the ASIC's...

    Bitcoin Price Soars above $5,000 to Record High

    If I had treated my bitcoins as an investment and left it alone I would be sitting on over $1 million right now. I had too much paranoia with market fluctuations that I was always watching the price, buying/selling. Never had the stomach for it. That and I bought a lot of things with them...

    Minnesota Woman Fatally Shoots Boyfriend in Failed YouTube Video Stunt

    I wouldn't trust someone to fire either at me, even if there were a 1/4" steel plate behind the book "just in case". Person could miss, could break a rib or in the case of the .50 BMG, it would likely go through the steel plate too.

    My wife has a LG v20 and I will likely get one soon too. Either that or another phone with a type C connector. I am also building a new desktop PC for my son soon which will have it too.

    CoolerMaster Makes Building PCs Harder

    I was hoping it was full sized too, for $40 I would definitely buy one to put an actual PC in it. Would be a great base for a mod project.

    Stupid Tech Invention of the Day

    Honestly I think you are more of the problem than you realize. If you NEED a phone to remember things, the phone is officially replacing your memory. People don't think they need to remember facts or math anymore because of technology and only getting worse as time goes on.

    Apple Selling $300 Book Containing Photos Of It Products

    A genius idea to show how little Apple products change over time. The pictures will be current for many years to come.

    Comcast 1TB Internet Cap Is Becoming A Reality

    Just a thought, I just did the math and by their justification I can only use my Internet at 100% utilization for 2.4 hours a day max. That is with my sorry ass 30meg connection. So others with faster connections can use much less. I figured max throughput at the theoretical maximum to be...

    Hulu Drops Monthly Price To $5.99

    I don't mind Hulu, just share the sub with my sister in law. Also, on my TV I can skip the commercials simply by changing the stream quality (even to the same setting).

    Walmart Is Developing A Self-Driving Shopping Cart

    Aldi's is great, but I don't usually do the shopping, my wife does. Whenever I wind up going I usually will get there and realize I forgot to check the car for a damn quarter for the carts. I is a great idea, just pisses me off sometimes since I don't normally drive the car so I don't know...

    Awesome Home-Made Wooden Counterweight Desk

    It wouldn't take much to get rid of that flex that you see, even when he gets on it with the weight at the end. A couple of braces going from the front to the slides, and possibly a slightly thicker main support board.

    343 Industries Explains 20GB Day One Patch

    Just start releasing games on custom USB drives with drm built in. No need to install, because you get better performance off the stick drive than the installed hard drive. All the hard drive would be for is patches, dlc, digital downloads, and saves. They could even leave some room on the...

    Facebook 'Dislike' Button 'Too Complex' To Introduce

    Hell, I'd be happy if the dislikes were invisible and just moved the post off your feed (and ranked the post down for relevance) Nobody's feelings hurt, just their posts never get seen by anyone eventually.

    11 Facebook Posts That Will Get You Fired

    Much of why I never post anything about a current or FORMER employer. Sometimes you won't get jobs for being a dick online to your employer (or acting like a fool). I only use my Facebook account to keep up with my family events and rarely ever post a status. It's been almost a year since my...

    TigerDirect Now Accepts Bitcoin Payments!

    I feel your pain (and then some) cashed out about 250 coins a while back to do a computer upgrade for $1000.... I could really kick myself for that now. But like any investment, at some point you are going to get out. No way too know what the future will bring. That and I wouldn't have had...
