No shit right? For those that like the term "Fake News" (a hilarious term, I guess its the new "Conspiracy Theory" term), I remember quite clearly when fake intelligence

Fake news is a thing, there are people that have come forth and told us how they did it, why and how you can make money at it. These aren't political parties or official entities. They created fake news out of thin air to rile people or push an agenda, but the bottom line to get clicks and money. That is different imo.

Microsoft has started porting their console exclusives to the PC and has redoubled efforts to unfuck the Windows Store. Spencer constantly mentions the PC platform now, its getting a lot of attention. What else were you looking for?

Right. The question is will they do a good job? Probably not. But we'll see over time.

I wonder if any thought of the mental effects this stuff is going to have on people.

You mean like 24/7 news, electronics and water supplies?

Note that their idea of "crystal-clear 1080p 60FPS" is bs. OnLive claimed the same thing, and in reality, because of the way the internet works, your stream is constantly going to be losing data, and thus you're not going to be looking at a crystal clear 1080p. In reality, you'll be lucky if you're looking at the equivalent of 720p.

It's hard to state an equivalent because we are talking penalization, stutters, smears, etc. I rather have perfect 720p vs hiccuping, pixelated blurring screens. They do have a free time, I should try a couple games though to see first hand where they are at with all this.

There are, by reports, like 12+ full planets you can investigate and several small outpost like sections, so where that's concerned it should be fine. Also, ME1 had just as much combat as ME2/3, it was just shitty combat versus decent combat, so eh.

Wait for reviews. I'm planning on getting it day one, so I will post a review a few days later.

The real question is, did they just DA:I this game? I saw a lot of "collect resources and upgrade your stuffs!" bullshit in the previous trailers. What do you think of this game so far?

Is that called DA:I'ing a game? Tons of games have that stuff and people like to craft... so you gather to craft, no?

First I had a good belly laugh when Trump got voted in but the best laugh came with the wailing, moaning, gnashing of teeth sour-grapes of the Hillary supporters. None of whom have any idea how to go to the fridge and pour a glass of "suck-it-up-you-lost-now-get-over-it" juice.

I find hilariously ironic that the "progressive/leftist/sjw's" who promote and push tolerance the most are the LEAST tolerant of all when they don't get their way.
ROFLMAO.

There are more people than not imo that aren't either Trump or Hillary Supporters.

Don't discount the Conservative whine, themselves they went in total gridlock mode immediately when Obomber came into office. And their fans, they've been posting every issue in the world being Obombers fault every day on facebook and the like that entire time, they still talk about Hillary to. I judge Trump on being Trump.

We're all fools is most probable.

And after that, the cycle will start again because we homo sapiens do not learn from our own history.

And just think 1/2 of America has been programmed by a specific 24/7 news channels to truly think the other half is retarded, whom part of that 1/2 are the progressives. Some learn, but it is hard to overcome opposition numbers some time.

As for this specifically its about price and caps, will big business win where they make more money if you stream vs pay for more cable etc? I'm assuming that is what the biggest of boys want, where it isn't cheaper to stream content.

I don't get the complaint. They're not saying anything about hacking related to Fallout, just using it as the stock photo. It's really that or The Matrix.

What other stock photo can quickly convey "hacking" to pretty much anyone that sees it?

Yep. I see it as funny, but nothing more, as you say it could have been matrix #'s that have been used since the first movie and no one bats an eye... show them a fallout hack screen.... lol

Still don't get why AMD is so hung up on HBM2... considering no benchmark showed any benefit of it.

As a mini-ITX user, I'm hoping HBM gives us smaller graphics cards like they're saying. The only current gen enthusiast class cards that would fit in my case were reference cards or an EVGA 1070/80 and they're only going to get longer and fatter with GDDR.

There are some mini-versions out there.

REGULATION IS TEH BADZ. STOPPING TEH INNOVATIONZ AND STUFFZ.

Meanwhile, countries with working regulation merrily go along with dramatically faster speeds, at dramatically lower prices.

But, I know, their innovation must be stifled SOMEHOW.

Yep, if there wasn't other countries doing things differently and being successful in doing so, giving people more protections and rights, then I could write this all up as me be a hopeless dreamer. But what came out a couple days ago? A couple euro countries making it illegal to email employees after hours and expect them to work, to answer. To me that is a good healthy thing as we can see bosses/employers always over-stepping their bounds. Great we created tech to make us work more in ways we never expected.

Boo on vive... that is not how you start up a new tech by keeping prices high and models stagnant. That is how you don't do it.

Delaying them doesn't equal "killing" them.
Also, you can delay quite a bit in Enterprise, so this may be an extra tweak for enterprise.

I think it's very doubtful MS will let most people have control on this.

Stop BITS and Update Service. Done.

If you use their new Settings style screens, you've basically took 20 years of PC experience and threw it out the door. That is console level control, fuck those screens, go back to core controls, not this shit. Don't be a noob and ignore beginner level articles that only talk about these settings.

Cars, as you mention, spend the vast majority of their lifespan sitting unused. With a network of self-driving cars, this changes. You don't own a car, you just hire one to take you from point A to point B. Each trip will cost you more than if you owned the car, but now you don't need to buy or lease one, and don't need to park it (think about how much of America is taken up by sprawling parking lots.)

How will long road trips work? No clue. But all transportation will likely be public-ish. Smart routing will even make shared pooling simple and unobtrusive, though people will certainly pay to avoid it at times.

Sounds cool, you'll need strong progressive politics, the old-school will fight this in some way. Alt-Wrongs will talk about freedom of owning a car and all that and they'll never give in! Good times ahead.
