Facial recognition can't identify people most of the time, so thinking it can predict behavior of any kind, let alone specific behavior, based on an image of a face is beyond ridiculous.

Phrenology in techbro clothes.

There is not a single fucking thing preventing ANYONE else of any race, creed, color, or religion from going out and competing by starting their own business.

Have you ever had a single introspective moment where you sat back and thought, "Perhaps I, a straight white man of a certain age, do not have a monopoly on truth and experience? Maybe a person not like me has experienced life differently? Maybe sometimes things happen when I am not looking? Maybe even when I have witnessed things, I interpreted them differently than others? And perhaps, even, my interpretation was incorrect?"

People who say “you mad?” and call others “snowflakes” got upset about an option in a video game for children.

Hahahaha that is a magnificent line.

Big, good, RPG's... only CD Project is making them. So imo they can take their sweet time to make them perfect. For me that's about the only games that are must-buys.

Larian? Both Divinity: OS games were amazing.

I don't think they could get away with just making up numbers with several multi-billion-dollar companies involved as sponsors.

Facebook straight-up lied about ad impressions by up to 900% for 2 years.

Interesting choice of words, "unforgettable," as I seem to have all but forgotten my BioShock experiences to date....;) I own them all, but they're not that memorable.

Pretty much the only thing I remember about the first one was how I had already figured out the plot before the big reveal, and how I got bored with it and never finished it. I never played the second one, but somehow I own it on Steam. I got Infinite for free, I think it was a freebie for voting in one of those game award deals. It was as predictable as the first, but I did manage to finish it.

I did enjoy snapping my fingers to set people on fire in the first, enough that I did finish the game. But the gunplay in the series was so atrocious that I only got about 20 minutes into Infinite before I put it down and never went back.

Maybe they should increase performance per dollar by more than 20% over 4 years ago, if they care so much about my FPS.

AMD Drivers still suck, that's a thing going back all the way to the ATI days in the dawn of the 2000's.

I still have to run Google Chrome and Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled. Because the drivers fucking suck.

But if you don't mind a few quirks then you certainly get a lot of power for your money.

I also have to run Chrome and Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled, on my GTX1080. For a while this was because nvidia's drivers would straight up crash, but with newer driver versions it's because they make dwm.exe crash.

When will the software industry just admit that Agile development is a crock of shit?
Indeed; I work in IT, but not software, and it seems The Management are trying to make everything "Agile". It's an absolute pile of sh1t. I have nfi what use it is within the dev world, but if it works there then great. But for my day to day stuff, like migrating users into O365/FSLogix/new Citrix, or doing some app layering...how the hell does "Agile" help? I spent more time trying to fill "sprints" and "epics" in the sh1te that is Jira than doing the damn work. I left that place after 3 months (I'm a contractor).

But then nearly 25 years in IT has me jaded about all this new fangled stuff like "Scrum", "Agile", "The Cloud" (I actually do Azure/Citrix/Nutanix...so, that last one is more an annoyance at the name tbh). Roll on retirement Now...back to Factorio

Maybe that's why Epic's Roadmap was cr@p too? "Agile".../smh

Scrum and Agile have been around for 25 years too, so not exactly new-fangled.

Ballsy move to not include Legendary Axe, Keith Courage or Splatterhouse on the TG16 mini. It's a bold strategy Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for them.

Still, I feel like this is the first one of these min-systems I might pick up. Good selection!

All this white male bashing is the real racism and bigotry.

Yup, ladies and gentlemen, here we are. Cutter literally, unironically, said the real victims of racism an sexism are the white males.

Technically... he's right.
There is a small percentage of freak groups like "neo nazis" and the "kkk", but all white males (especially ones that disagree with socialistic policies)are labled as "white nationalists" and "racists".

That's like saying every <insert minority race here> is a criminal.

It's bullshit.

The stereotyping needs to fucking stop.

All this "white priviledge" crap also needs to stop. It's taken folks many years to work up to what they have, and saying it's all "white privelege" diminishes what they ACTAULLY EARNED / ACCOMPLISHED.

Which is also bullshit.

I'm a white male, and somehow I have gone my entire life without anyone calling me a white nationalist or a racist. Am I doing something wrong?

GRMM should just hand over everything to Scalzi and let him finish it. At least we wouldn't have a type of dinnerware mentioned fifty million times in one book.

Ugh no thanks. Scalzi has no hand for characterization, wooden and every character has the same "voice". Old Man's War was decent but I haven't liked anything he's written since and hes certainly no one to fill Martin's shoes. I don't begrudge him his success but he writes like a Whedon script fetishist.

Joe Abercrombie doesn't have the same stylistic prose as Martin but he definitely shares his penchant for layered plots involving kingdoms and character deaths. Steven Erikson is way too technical and desperately needs a new editor.

As long as no one suggests Mr Magic System Brandon Sanderson then we're cool though

I think Sanderson has already said somewhere he wouldn't do it if asked. Let's get Patrick Rothfuss on the case!

Oh yeah, Rothfuss is great at finishing series.

Eeew. I like Scalzi as a guy, but his writing is the sci-fi equivalent of twinkies. Empty calories, light and fluffy.

Reminds me of something I saw in a science show recently. They were talking about a new telescope and how each scan/picture which was 6 GB of data. The plan was to do that every 15 seconds for 10 years. And my immediate thought was, that's a lot of data to store and keep "safe".

Sounds like the LSST? Super excited by that one. But man it's a long time coming.
