Right out of the gate the media is trying to paint a false narrative that he's completely unpopular, so unpopular that nobody showed up for his inauguration. It's the media that are acting childish in this case.

I didn't take it that way at all and watching non-fox outlets it wasn't a major point, but it was mentioned as a matter of fact in comparison. Typically bigger or smaller, it is said and forgotten, but the thin skinned one(s) get offended and that is the same person/group that says to others... stop being so offended all the time. Fucking mess.

My getting into HDR I think will be a common way. One of my current TV's have failed and needs replaced. Hopefully by that time, HDR will be standard at next to no additional cost. So in general they would have got the same money from me either way, I'll get better quality at that time. But I'm not out today looking for better quality TV, satisfied in full with what I have and totally paid for.

HDR is a nice feature but not something I need to early retire what I currently have. 3D to me is/was the same way, came with my projector for free, I use it, however the negative is the loss of brightness. The tech at least on projectors came with one fairly sized negative, loss of vividness because of the shaded glass. That said, I still have some movies and their cool to watch, if I had no brightness loss at all, I'd be really satisfied.

It's funny how all these Trump supporters want everyone to suck it up, live with it, etc when they were denouncing Obama as a Muslim terrorist, or the root of all American problems, or just going for the "typical" blatantly racist stuff, nonstop, for 8 years.

I love to remind friends and family of this, they all want us to now sit in kumbaya, but they would never with Obama and every petty issue they somehow stuck to him. "Well it's because that was true", they say, eyes roll. They can't see a pattern if it was laying right in front of them, written "I'm a Pattern!"

They didn't replace anything, control panel is still there in all it's 20 year-old glory, it's just accessed a different way (still multiple ways to access control panel).

And I think that anyone being honest with themselves can agree that there's probably a better way of doing most stuff on an OS. Computing, home computing in particular is so young. I'd be sad if we just locked ourselves in a cage that nothing can ever change as far as UI goes, because "that's what I'm used to". I can promise that the layout of 50+ different icons in control panel is not the most efficient way of doing anything... unless you've been doing it that way your whole life.

Look at OSX, that shit hasn't changed in like 12 years. "it just works", BOOOO. 12 years ago Facebook wasn't a thing, smartphones weren't a thing, mobile internet wasn't really a thing, cable-cutters were freaks... and today we live in a world of $200 3D printers and self-driving electric cars. But OS design on Macs hasn't moved more than an Inch. Windows on the other hand moves 2 steps forward, 3 steps back, 5 steps forward etc... unpredictable, but actually trying new shit. At the end of the day, I'm all for innovation that actually makes interacting with a computer more efficient.

And before people jump on me, no, I don't think that the Win 10 settings menu is that solution, but philosophically I'm not against change. And I hope the change continues until it gets it right.


I agree with your point certainly. I'm not sure if they are long term planning getting rid of most of the legacy settings and making a PC - Consule UI. As long as there is a viable way to get things I need done, done. I'll figure it out.

Well, on the bright side, in 6 months when the Trump supporters realize that he's done nothing to actually help them; Is a lying, misogynistic, white supremacist, anti-Islam, hate mongering, bigot with an agenda that only helps millionaires, perhaps then we'll all finally be united again as a country and agree to hate him.

Will have to axe those people first, but then yes united!

I can assure you 2/3's of family/friend repubs are too damn stubborn.

Man I hope there are more protests, I need to get in on them, just having the #'s is all it takes to rattle the thin skinned one.

Trump got the Republican and redneck vote, the redneck was what he needed to win. Yep I'm lucky to have family and friends of both. If anything I would blame more the Republican family and friends because they say country first, but really mean party first, will die before they ever admit and their man isn't a Repub either, like he isn't a demo, but Party Name First! But then I saw Hillary on the other side, the anointed one by party insiders, OOOPS, got what you deserved there. We were doomed. He will always be an asshole by his words used , but maybe he can do some good.

I'll wait and see before I totally throw my hands in the air, but today he shuts down a parks dept from further tweets because they tweeted a pic of 2009 vs 2017 inauguration attendance, man has the thinnest skin imaginable. What terrible ratings the vanity whore got yesterday, just awful!

Republican's continuing their assimilation agenda, they have poor mail order bride Melania even saying "Make America Great Again" when she talks. They will never understand this won't work, man will always find a new division.

Republican's just put out an inauguration speech that was basically. "It's not what you can do for your country, but what the country can do for you". That sounds very democratic. And then to think a democratic said the exact opposite...

Love me some politics when the shit gets all twisted up like this!

One of my favorite current thoughts is, he wants to help the middle class, like big time, right? And he'll make it cheaper for companies to do business, in hopes of trickle down. HOPE. What we have seen for a good while is all trickle leftover goes to boosting stock prices. He's also against a minimum wage, a way to make sure the worker gets theirs, they've gutted middle classes champions the Unions, which he's against... again go figure. So how does he get business to actually give more to their workers to make the middle class great again?

My job I work with a lot of different business, owners aren't seeing that any new gains in less taxes and regs go right into workforce wages and benis, in fact I got some strong remarks and laughs against such a thought. So it will be interesting what is done here to make the workers get more. One leader in the clubhouse would be, by making all these jobs in America, that competition for the worker will raise prices, that could work, we'll have to see if we get that many new jobs for that to be a factor.

Looking forward to Redstone 2, read an article detailing all the new stuff coming down the pipe, it's definitely a dense update. Quick virtualization, native HDR support, and the game mode thing stand out.

Although apparently they're taking away the "control panel" from the "right click start button" uber menu, which sucks... not sure why.

Oh also, screen resolution is now right in display properties, not buried under advanced menu, which is gud.

They're trying to replace legacy screens and all the little things we could control, with more dummy console like settings screens. Yeah this is something I'm not fond of 10. But if I can still get there, I'll be fine. Not sure if the long game is to take out and remove the functionality in full. That said, I haven't upgraded to the latest version and may not upgrade to this, depends on results that I care about.

You're going to keep buying Nvidia products because they make the best performers and no one really cares about making a fucking login, its just online whining.

Of all the things Nvidia has done over the years, this is what people choose to care about. Fucking hilarious.

Well I'm going to, because it is price/performance for me. I just load the drivers anyway so still no login required. I'm not buying second rate over this. But if someone decides the opposite, well not much care here. I get it to a certain point the other side, but to me this is a read the room type issue. Johnny do you smell that? That's the future Johnny.

OK, well... Snowden didn't even do that by your definition. Only Manning did.

Glad you found one more way to hate on Obama though, you'll be pretty bored come Saturday.

And on top of that his man also told the Ruskies to hack us and he doesn't trust his own intelligence agencies. Mixed up, messed up, fuck'd up world... No words can explain the madness.

Right is right when it can be determined and wrong is wrong, the same.

You are correct in a political sense, but perhaps not in a right/wrong world.

If Satan ran the US, those who oppose are treasonous or right?

Fucking comment of our times...

"We do not currently have a policy in place to offer any refunds," DirecTV Now reps tell annoyed users.


That is how you beat the system, never program in things that can cost you, then you can't service such requests. This isn't a first, but perhaps saying it like that publicly is.

LOL First world "problems".

Pretty much. To those saying well it could be better if they didn't. Well it could be better if the cards were just given to us for free. I deal in "it is what it is, this is business and their rules". These aren't crippling, that said we all have our opinions and standards and ultimately choice of continuing using the product. If it really gets you buy an AMD, perhaps they won't do this. Fuck my mouse sort of requires a login for updates. I've been data-mined more than Paris Hilton was fucked in the '00's, that concern has long sailed, because I'd be an utter mess worrying about it otherwise.

My previous car's windshield was a chip and crack magnet. Must have been something about the design that made windshield strikes more likely to crack it, maybe the angle. And $60 is pretty cheap to replace a windshield, at least around here, so at least you have that going for you.

I believe that's the price to repair the crack. The insurance company says they will cover replacing the windshield if it comes to that.

Windshield replacement is one of those things that have gotten very easy and affordable. Good! Mentioning Insurance covering it, I would be impressed you have a policy that has that low of a deductible to even come into play or perhaps you drive something exotic.

As for VR, VR is a nascent industry with several problems and obstacles to overcome before it becomes a commodity item.

You are probably correct, but I'm not an investor in the tech so I really don't care. Face it, if it became thee thing, many would hate it for that reason then. We suck as people. All I need is for it to be great, be reasonably priced and be supported well, not super duper well.

What I want is v2 at a cheaper price, I need to have that at this point. Feeling since I waited until 2017 that if I were to buy today, I just paid top dollar when something better is right around the corner (sucker), I can't feel alone here? Valve and Oculus aren't consumer electronics enough to drive a market like this early. Sony and Samsung are, but I need them driving it on the pc.

As for Gabe's AMA, wow snooze. Questions, Eh. Answers, Double Eh.

What's funny is that ArcheAge is pretty much the best mmo to come out in years

Unfortunately when I read that, it still sets very low expectations from me. How has this game broke the mmo mold that is as stale as... insert a crusty underwear reference here? I wanna believe!

As for this game... not feeling it, maybe that mix would have been good for me 5+ years ago.

I'd like to think lessons possibly learned. Be interested to see how this turns out.

Totally agree with the comments on making sure you use the strengths of the medium and make tough calls for the greater good, but you know there will always be purists that will make it sound disastrous and if enough, that will become popular opinion to even by-standers.
