I used Opera Next for about a year (it's just Opera flavored Chrome) and went back to Firefox recently. The Ublock Origin add-on is pretty good.

I left Opera because it kept updating and changing things I didn't want changed.

Not all states have all legal protections. In some states employers can ask you for a FB password - most states actually. What they see when they go there, though, can get tricky as to whether or not they can really use it - so I doubt many companies are doing this.

The privacy protections in the US are actually pretty poor.

BYOD is a big problem for IT so remote wipe is kind of necessary in a lot of environments.

The article isn't as paranoid as it sounds but it's not 100% accurate either. +4 accuracy, +6 fear-mongering

I skipped backing this one.

After backing a few of the other "old big names" I came to the conclusion that they had fallen out of favor / the industry for a reason.

Did nobody watch The Matrix?

Matrix was (scientifically) bullshit. Humans need to take in way more energy than they emit

Whooooooooooooosh

I wish I could debug with crystals and herbs. That would be awesome.

That didn't last long. Maybe they'll just give up and finally put ME3 on Steam. I might actually play it finally.

There's not really anything new there, but I'm sure there will be later.

Fans have already picked apart the videos. There's a lot of speculation that skills have been ditched in favor of a ranked perk system since none of the UI elements appear to have a skills selection.

I'm generally okay with that since a lot of the skills mostly just operated on a lock - so 51 was basically the same as 72 when it came to actually doing anything special or useful.

Some fans think there'll be more at Quake Con but I would expect that mostly to be about the new Doom game.

I noticed the new deathclaw appears to have a few different attacks - including a headbutt.

I hope they bring centaurs back just because they were so gross.

The only reason I can think a game would hard lock at a certain FPS is if the developers were too lazy to program in a proper timer.

And given that the code for such is freely available everywhere that is pretty lazy.

Tupperware and buttery broccoli are not topics I ever thought I'd discuss on Blue's and yet here I am - kinda thinking about vegetables.

Yeah, I actually switched to glass containers for leftovers around Christmas when I noticed everyone was yelling about bad things in plastic.

Daedric princes don't really die. They can harass each other in significant ways - Jyggalag for example. Mortals can fling them back to their places in Oblivion, but eventually they come back.

I get the impression they are immortal and sort of bored.

I played for about a year but it's starting to wane and this won't bring my attention back.

The PVP is really broken right now. Everyone goes around in a mob stacking enchants and while it works, it is no fun at all.

I "beat" the game and unsubscribed. Now I just dink around accumulating gold waiting for FO4 to come out.

Making everyone have a battery is a half-assed solution. Battery + solar panel maybe.

I've been through plenty of natural disasters where the phone line was okay but power was out for a way more than 24 hours..

I'm already down on PVP from ESO's current disaster.

That's kind of weird about Amazon but I need to see it from more sources before I'll believe it.

If a bunch of indie authors come forward with the same story then I'll get mad. If it's just this one then I'm thinking click bait hoping for a viral.

Is it like STO where you can get special items and ships if you pay but you can still do okay in fights (and even win) if you have skill and do some grinding / missions?

Or is it truly $ = you win button?

I mean, they're giving the game away free so money has to come in somehow.

I don't mind paying if it's not a fortune to get something decent.
