I'm still rocking a HTC one from 4 years ago, mainly because I simply will not buy a phone without a headphone jack, SD card support and ideally a easily-replaceable battery.

Samsung Galaxy S9 has a headphone jack and SD card support. Also no notch and reasonably sized. No removable battery, but good luck finding a phone with that. I recently upgraded to a S9+ because most web sites are so full of slow javascript these days that the old phone was barely coping when loading pages. Always having a decent camera on me is also nice.

I don't understand the parameters here. Some of these games came out years ago.

I agree that Beat Saber will win, but only because it's the "cool" game that all the kids are playing. I've spent far, far more time in Skyrim VR. Beat Saber isn't even a tech demo compared to the amount of content and gameplay in Skyrim.

Even if Google were bias, is that illegal? They made it so corporations are people, and people can have political bias.

They qualify as a monopoly, so they do have additional regulation applied to them in regards to what they can do. I don't know if political bias is one of them.

As a long-time fan of Daredevil, I also thought the Netflix production was great. Head-and-shoulders above the rest of Netflix's Marvel shows. I'm pretty sad to see this happen.

I'm pretty sure this is due to Disney's new streaming service. It's not like Marvel/Disney isn't above this type of pettiness, like when they cancelled the Fantastic Four comic just because they didn't have the film rights.

I remember even for the time that the graphics in Half Life were unimpressive. Not Jedi Knight level bad, but still behind the curve. That intro sequence more than made up for that.

Heads up that the Samsung Odyssey+ is on-sale for $299. This is a Black Friday deal, but they've started it a bit early.

After reading the article, it sounds like the head of ACE has a significant personality disorder. These kind of people only get more extreme when you attack them, so ACE is probably dead as a mainstream organization. Too bad.

True. It's much smarter than most real autopilot systems that just keep you level and pointed in the same direction.

CCP Games released a mediocre multiplayer only game for a high price, and exclusive to Rift. They deserved to fail.

As to VR in general, I truly do not understand why every person on this site doesn't already have a headset. This is a gaming site, and VR is the biggest advancement in gaming since 3D accelerators. Most people here already have a PC gaming rig that's capable enough, and you can pick up a headset for under $400. Adjusted for inflation, that's cheaper than 3DFX card was when they were released.

Trump never called nazis fine people.

His quote was : "You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides"

The meaning of his comment are extremely clear to everyone. Only one side had Nazis. If you're marching with Nazis, then guess what - YOU'RE A NAZI. Naziism isn't an ethnicity you have to born to, or a club you have to sign up for. It's a social movement. If you support a social movement, then you are part of it. So yes, Trump did say Nazis were "very fine people".

Looks like the i5-9600K is the current sweet spot.

So let me get this straight....first it was the Russians for botnets and now it's Saudi Arabia? Puh-lease!

Are you incapable of holding the thought in your head that more than one country is capable of running a botnet?

This should tell you all you need to know about the Bing article:

"Anecdotally, it feels less burdened with ads."

I though Wired hired actual journalists?

What real VR headset is that cheap and doesn't need a $500+ phone?

Lenovo Explorer. Same resolution as Oculus Rift and Vive and head-tracking is just as good. No IPD adjustment, but apparently the optics are better than Rift/Vive. It's another $70 if you also want tracked controllers.

*nods in approval* Thanks!

How ironic. A good part of the article is about people blindly taking the word of random people on the internet. Read the article yourself. Don't be part of the problem.

Until people decide they no longer want the 2nd Amendment

People have already decided we don't need the 2nd Amendment. We're just arguing on the margins at this point. If you go with the interpretation that the 2nd Amendment applies to everyone, and not just Militia, then we already have massive restrictions on arms.

If people realize that the 2nd Amendment is already moot, there's a chance it could get repealed.

Seems like Daneel would be the "person" to follow, since he's around for the entire series.
