I took a look at the comments on that Pokemon article, and then quickly ran away. Despite the occasional dumb-ass, it really makes me appreciate the community here.

For TVs, the HDR isn't simulated. They can physically get brighter with higher light output. To qualify as HDR, the TVs must support a certain contrast ratio and brightness level. Even without HDR content, HDR TVs in general are going to look better since they have better contrast ratios.

My main TV already gets blindingly bright in a dark room, so I'm not really itching for an upgrade just yet.

1. Stealing login credentials.. Sep 8, 2016, 18:14 Bodolza
 
Emulating a NIC over USB is creative, but there's not much to see here. They're just grabbing hashes. NTLM has been known to be vulnerable for over a decade. Anyone with a recent OS is going to have NTLMv2 hashes, which are basically uncrackable, unless you used a simple password that's vulnerable to rainbow tables attack.

I was holding out on getting the PS4 until the new one came out with 4K blu-ray support. Now it looks like I'll be skipping this generations of consoles entirely.

I know people love their porn, but 800,000 accounts on a forum to just talk about a different website is crazy.

I just hope this update doesn't break compatibility with the thousands of community-made tracks on customforge.

Are you calling Hollywood some minor, cult industry?
No, I'm referring to your Fangoria example, which is pretty much the definition of a cult magazine.

the bigger sites today also have professional journalists and editors

So, are they professional publications with journalistic standards, or are they "enthusiast media" filled with "corruption and cronyism"?

Ahem. Bullshit.

Gaming is on of the largest entertainment industries in the world. It's not some minor, cult industry. More than twenty years ago we had real gaming journalism with magazines like CGW that had professional journalists and editors. The current state of gaming media is due to people like you, who accept, embrace, or support the status quo.

The only way to get back to real journalism is to stop supporting these lazy, hack writers.

Uh 4th Amendment anyone?

The Supreme Court has decided that the Constitution doesn't apply if you're within 100 miles of the border.

These all look pretty good, so hopefully these are real, full-length games and not just more 2 hour tech demos.

Your first link is total trash. Their 4 "facts" are pure speculation and opinion. You should be ashamed for believing and posting such nonsense.

The Binney post isn't much better. He has no evidence - just opinion. "Binney raised the possibility" "Binney surmised"

I keep a big wad of beef fat from trimmings in the freezer in a ziplock, and use that to oil the grill. I just rub it straight on the hot grates. It easy, free, and works great.

I'd just like to point out when the founders wrote the 2nd ammend. single shot rifles were all that the military had as well.

There's some disingenuity on the pro-2nd amendment side. They claim a strict interpretation of the amendment means that ordinary citizens are granted the right to bear arms. "Arms" means all guns, cannons, rockets, bombs, and anything else the military has should be available to all.

If that's not your stand, then you don't actually believe the 2nd amendment should be enforced as written, and think that citizens should be restricted in what arms they can have.

I've been running both Win7 and Win10 concurrently for about a year now, and I see no reason to "upgrade" to 10. Unless you're using a tablet, there's just no advantage to running 10 right now, and plenty of disadvantages.

The UI is a step backwards in every way. It's uglier and more confusing than ever. It's a mish-mash of 7 and 8, so finding any given setting is always a guessing game. I also find Aero much better looking. Most importantly, Win7 doesn't require modifying a bunch of settings and constant vigilance to keep MS from invading your privacy.

Metric making so much more sense, the continued use of antiquated standard feels embarrassing.

Agreed, except for temperature. Since Fahrenheit is based on human body temperature, and it has finer whole number values, it more relate-able and usable than Celsius. Unlike a lot of other imperial measurements, it's also base10.

I guess that guy knows moray eels are venomous right?

No, they aren't. Also, this is at an aquarium, so the guy is probably a Marine Biologist, who know more about the eels than any of us ever will.

If they're pushing it back this close to release, it means massive play issues or game-killing bugs. They might fix the big bugs, but this is EA, so don't expect any of the small ones to ever get fixed.

Seriously. In my experience, BMW and Prius drivers are the worst on the road. If I'm dodging a vehicle, it's usually one or the other.
