using duck duck go and thinking about how to best get rid of gmail... but I can't find any decent email hosting that is not in the US... Europe has many, but they are all listed in the NSA documents are "easy to pwn" or they cost money. And I will NEVER pay money money for emails.

If you build your own server box, install uBuntu on it. And then proceed to make your own email server. its quite a process though

But that'd require a 100% stable internet connection.. which I sadly don't have. Though it is stable most of the time, it changes IP every 24hr and that means any server needs to constantly keep some redirect service up-to-date with IP and be linked with dynDNS or something alike.

It's not just quite a process, it's a huge hassle

And I doubt I could do a better spam filter than google...

That piece of glass cost 450k? What a waste!

Does it need said again? Don't buy Alienware.. you just pay a premium for them to put the cheapest hardware they can find in a cool looking case. You're essentially paying an extra grand for that cool case.

Isn't that true for all "pre-assembled" desktop pc's? I have never seen one that's priced competitively.

Maybe now AMD can produce proper CPU's again that aren't total crap compared to Intel's I7 line....

With the direction the market is moving I'm not sure it matters that much anymore. Companies seem to care more about power and IGP performance. They're slower than Intel but still good enough for most practical purposes. I hope mobile leads to better battery tech or something because we're seeing a fair amount of stagnation in other traditional performance areas.

The problem is that AMD is pretty awful in competing on power also.

And with that, heat. Which is really why they can't compete in performance.

You can't believe how sad this makes me, I want AMD stuff to be good but I will never buy inferior hardware. If I upgrade my CPU, it's state-of-the-art or nothing. And state of the art, is not AMD.

I'm sure they'd be happy to if they had even a fraction of Intel's R&D budget...

Yeah, but how will they ever get to that point.... If I wanted a state-of-the-art system now, my choice would be, Intel's So. 2011 ... and that's it. AMD isn't even in the same generation when it comes to CPU's.

And while the ATI gpu's look pretty tight in performance, who the heck wants 3 tiny noisy fans on their extremely overlength GPU...

It's just depressing.... Intel is under no pressure to lower prices because AMD is not even competing anymore.... sigh

Sorry but you're wrong. The radial menu in _this_ game does not work like that. At all. Did you actually watch those videos?

Also, if you that think replacing a radial menu with a litany of single-purpose buttons is good UI design and "sux less", then you must probably love WoW

Not sure why you'd think that a radial menu won't work with the mouse. That's just crazy talk. Especially since the UI was designed to be completely idiot proof.

I said they suck, not that they don't work... Sure they work, slowly. And that is great when idiot proofing a GUI for tablets, but it's annoying as heck for anyone who wants to get things done quickly Every time you "right click on a dude to do X" that could have been a single button and a click on target instead (on PC)

That said, mneh! I don't really care.. you make your games and you can do whatever the heck you want...

Haven't played WoW for ages, but I love XCOM Enemy Within.... and single purpose buttons of course not, why would they be single purpose. Hotkeys are assigned to slots, each character has different skills in slots, yeah that requires a skill bar but it does not require single purpose buttons. And a skill bar is faster than radial menus (except for touch interface)

I don't like radial menu is all. Never seen good ones, and the ones I have seen all sucked. X Rebirth for one.... ;p Maybe what you make is better.. who knows.

Linux users "completely disable" "permission"? I'm not sure what you mean, but if you're trying to say that most Linux users run as root to avoid typing in passwords, you don't know many Linux users.

I know plenty of users who run Ubuntu as root.... maybe that's the ones who really should be using Windows heh....

What use are these fucking documents when the most important information, like who is being investigated, for what reason, and why is [REDACTED]?????!!!

Because journalists are not in a position, nor do they have the right, to decide who should be named and who shouldn't. Greenwald said it, they can not take the responsibility to name anyone, innocents could have their life ruined, or criminals escape from justice... that is not something journalists should do.

I won't touch a pad interface with a stick.... only with a mouse... and with a mouse, radial menus suck donkey tails.

Aside that... indifference Doesn't look bad, doesn't look awesome. Just looks.. nmeh.. think some people will enjoy it

Bah! Ship now fix later was one of the things that turned me off of PC gaming in the first place... now it's standerd practice across all platforms, and of course software companies are never held accountable for shipping unfinished products.

This is Capcom we are talking about.... no surprises there.

Hey look! Researchers finally discovered what everyone in the linux industry has known for the last umpteen years - that linux is the most secure OS!! Hurray!

Oh wait! Hurry go back to your Microsoft Office and WinWhatever -- we don't want our gravy train spilled...

If you believe what a GCHQ sponsored study says you haven't been reading the news these past months... even if Linux is more secure simply because of permission (which average users completely disable for ease of use and to prevent obscure problems) this study only found that on Windows 7/8 the RISK is higher, because it's 98% of the OS market. Security wise both OS tested equal.... which is why you should never, never, never believe what headlines say without clicking on the link first.

I see Star Wars MMO will actually be profitable, it wasn't a failure.

But.. but... what about all the fools that were saying SWKOTR was a giant failure that wouldn't even be able to recoup a fraction of it's cost? I thought they knew everything about games and business. They sure acted like it.

Huh? What is SWKTOR .... are you talking about KOTOR or SWTOR ??? DECIDE And gameplay wise SWTOR is a giant failure.

The CESG is part of the British Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ)

And as such, this research is completely worthless.

OpenBSD has the problem that nobody believes in the security of monolithic *nix anymore. Especially not OpenSSH after one can assume the relevant standards body is essentially NSA pwned.

If you are truly paranoid, you should be using Tails https://tails.boum.org/ anyway...
