Doesn't look like they've upgraded the graphics engine at all since I last played it a decade ago. This should run great on my Voodoo Rush.

Wouldn't a faster wifi router do the trick?

It's hard-wired to a 50 MBPS connection. The issue is latency, not bandwidth. Connecting to a server farm 300 miles away is always going to feel laggy in fast-moving games. Stuff like "Stacking" or Lego games are good. Not so much with fighting games or FPSs.

As a Shield TV owner, Apple TV got a big yawn from me. I didn't see anything I didn't already have, plus free (for now) GRID gaming, 4K support (Daredevil looks fantastic), and it works out-of-the-box with my Harmony remote.

GRID is a bit laggy for action games, so next video card upgrade, I'll probably get an Nvidia card so I can stream from my PC to the big screen.

Since bringing my case, I discovered that the court system today is not well-designed to address these [workplace discrimination] issues, either. First, to win in California court, discrimination has to be intentional...

You're narrowing the definition of EDM to fit your point of view. It stands for Electronic Dance Music.

Back in my day we played gee-tar the way the real gee-tar heroes told us to play. None of this new-fangled dub wub wub shtup crap!

EDM has been around since the 60's. That's 50+ years, so most of us have been listening to it our entire lives. If you're under 50, saying most current EDM is crap is a valid opinion. Of course, 90% of all music has always been crap, so that's not really saying much.

For me, the most interesting thing about the cable article is that the cheap Amazon cat6 cable was bad, prompting this quote:
"This is quite typical of Chinese Cat 6 that we see, most of which does not pass 5e," elaborated Denke.

Apparently cable category classifications are useless, since companies aren't being held to the standard.

$20K was for the home theater system, so the actual cost was $30K for the remodel. Around here, that's not bad for a full basement remodel.

That's not passwordless. He used his phone to login, so you either have a password on your phone, or anyone who has your phone can log in as you. This is a step backwards from 2-factor.

I'm guessing it will go for $499 unbundled. You heard it here first.

Rift will be DOA at that price. It would remain a niche product with limited application support, which means a quick death. The only way this is going to take off is if it's an easily justifiable purchase by the masses, which probably means under $300.

The system worked as expected. You had to supply multiple pieces of personal information to create an account. The "hackers" were able to create the accounts because they'd already stolen that info from other sources.

Unless the US rolls out some sort of secure individual authorization system to every citizen, this is always going to be a problem. I'm sure the people that are complaining the loudest about this "hack" are also the ones that would be most opposed to the solution.

It had the 6th highest opening for an R-rated film in May, and 24th for any month. PP2, meanwhile, is 22nd for PG-13 films in May. I also expect PP2 to drop off a lot next week. My guess is Mad Max will make more than PP2 next weekend.

Giant Star Wars LEGO Super Star Destroyer Shattered at 1000 fps

Looks more realistic than the actual shot in ROTJ. So much great SFX work in that movie, then one of the biggest explosions is one of the most obvious model shots in the series. I really wish they had fixed that in the special editions.

According to the article, no need for an anti-desktop RWD site - just a mobile site would be enough.

A mobile site would be nice, as long as Blue avoids "Responsive Web Design". That stuff is a plague on the internet.

I continue to be underwhelmed by what I'm seeing. People constantly complain about George's dialog, but his dialog is one of the primary factors in making something "feel" like Star Wars. It's why the TV shows and games always seem a bit off. Without Lucas's script, I think the movie is going to seem more like EU material than another Star Wars film.

My main concern, though, is Abrams - who has a bad habit of dumbing everything down. The giant plot holes in the Star Trek movies ruined them for me, and I don't see much to indicate that things will be different. Lucas spent years working out the stories and scripts for his films. I doubt we're going to be seeing the same level of care with the new movies.

I mean, look at this design: http://media.aintitcool.com/media/uploads/2015/merrick/tfacel14_large.jpg
Stormtroopers had a hard enough time seeing as it was. How is that even remotely functional? And the lightsaber. http://media.aintitcool.com/media/uploads/2015/merrick/newkylo1_large.jpg He's about 2 inches from skewering himself.

Congress already requires all video distributors to include close captioning, and all IP distribution to include CC on television content. Basically, the only major thing left out was movies over IP delivery. This lawsuit was trying to close that loophole. Do you really consider that abusurd?
