Is it by chance when someone's using the microwave? That fucks up bluetooth for me.

Not sure, next time it happens I'll go check if someone is using it.

Logi g900, and until the internal battery wears out, this is the last mouse I'll ever buy.

The G900 is what I'm using as well. I cannot tell the difference but the wired and wireless most of the time. Once in a while, every few days, there's some interference coming from somewhere and the cursor gets janky and I have to plug it back in. I'm not sure where it's coming from.

Not a bad looking mouse, far less gaudy than most. 2400 dpi is impressive, although a lot of these mice just use a multiplier to get "higher dpi", resulting in a cursor that cannot be moved pixel-by-pixel. Hopefully Biostar didn't do that, but...most mice at this price do that.

Yep, looking at DPI numbers is pretty meaningless. All you really need to know is what sensor the mouse is using. The PMW3366 is considered the best. There are several other good sensors as well.

Other than that, all there is really to know about is build quality.

Another thing is that a lot of people are under the false impression that Laser is better than standard Optical sensors. It's better at one thing: Tracking on shit like glass desks with no mousepad. But laser sensors all have built in smoothing and poor precision.

Given that we severely restrict those recreational drugs, isn't it time that we start restricting recreational products like chips, candy, and soda?

Yes, we do restrict those drugs. We don't sell them and levy heavy taxes on the addicts. An argument can be made for banning the sale of certain health hazards to the public, but there is no argument to be made that sin taxes are moral or ethical.

Bans at least target sellers. Taxes target addicts who need help.

Sin taxes are revenue generators, and despite your hopelessly naive idea that these taxes will be put to good use, they'll mostly just be another tax on the poor and uneducated, like the lottery, and the funds will be squandered.

The poor already pay too many taxes in this country, and I won't ever support a tax that will effectively target them.

Which would be fine if my insurance didn't go up because of them! Make unhealthy people pay more for insurance and I am all on board.

You're making faulty assumptions.

You assume being an unhealthy eater to the point of being a medical burden requires nutritionally hollow foods. If it has calories, you can eat too much of it and become fat. Plenty of fat people out there who don't care for sweets but are sucking down huge plates of home-cooked steak, pasta, fries, etc. You want to put extra tax on meat, noodles, and potatos too?

Second, your insurance rates are high because the medical industry and insurance industries in this country are made up of unethical criminals.

"Blame the fat people." is their latest deflection designed to make you believe that they need insurance rates to be high just to be solvent. Meanwhile they are cleaning you out and the equally corrupt doctors are cleaning them out.

Here's the thing about "sin taxes." They don't protect anyone. They aren't designed to protect anyone. They are designed as a revenue generator for the government, which they then line their own pockets with or kick back to some of their cronies in the private sector.

Sin taxes are especially unethical and deplorable when you are talking about addiction. You cannot solve addiction by raising the price of the drug, whether it be alcohol, tobacco, heroin, or Twinkies.

Soda and sweets and chips should be taxed like tobacco.

Yes, because all the taxes we already pay are used so wisely. Stupid idea. Away with your nanny state bullshit. People can make their own decisions about what they put in their mouth.

Who cares. Its a thing I'll log into once and then probably neverhave to log in again for like 2-4 years when I build a new rig.

I'm certainly not going to cut off my nose to spite my face and buy some underperforming AMD space heater.

I'd like to see the Ezio collection for the PC if it looked better. Never did finish the last one.

Yeah it's a shame it's not a full remaster. Then I'd definitely be in for a PC version.

The guys behind the unproven "infinite detail" rendering tech released a new video, showcasing work theyre doing towards making hologram gaming centers and new ways to bring real world laser-mapped environments into VR:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uYkbXlgUCw

They also have started work on getting animation working. It's rather telling that it's shown by itself and not in a voxel environment, so again I'm skeptical by their claims, but I must admit that I would very much like to visit one of their gaming centers.

I wonder if it'll run on the BitBoys GPU in my Phantom gaming console.

Heh, 4k is overrated. For gaming, it tanks your framerate too much except on older games or a very high end PC. And even on the high end PCs there isn't much wiggle room. Once games get even a bit more demanding, you're turning down settings to run at 4k, or condemning yourself to yearly $800 video card upgrades.

As for watching video, native 4k source material isn't really omnipresent, much of it that does exist is of questionable worth due to compression, and you have a lot of idiots buying 4k screens too small for the distance they sit from them.

The size of your screen isn't directly relevant to the worth of 4k, but the relative size of your screen in your field of view is. In a small room at 6 feet away from your 60-65" screen, 4k is great for video if you have a quality native 4k source. If you're 12 to 15 feet away? Hope you have a 90", or a giant projection, or you're wasting your time and money on 4k and 4k material.

If you've got a smaller screen like a 50" or even smaller, you need to be sitting at PC monitor distances.

And this all assumes you've got 20/20 vision acuity.

Today on Blue's: People bitch about a game being too niche and ask for it to be dumbed down and mainstreamed to appeal to them.

Way to flip the script.
