Not really a safety device, more like Big Government controlling your life. Disabling the device will make some people rich.

Funny, the human eye cannot tell the difference beyond 200 fps.

No doubt, "the book is better." But plenty of series and films took liberties with the source material that turned out well. Examples include The Neverending Story, Forrest Gump, The Princess Bride, The Shining, and Jurassic Park. It's not fair to say everything that deviates from the source material sucks. GOT is an example of what happens when you try to merge two different writing styles that clash. A.I. Artificial Intelligence was another example where Stephen Spielberg's style didn't mix well with Stanley Kubrick's, and the difference became jarring, especially at the end.

I agree with your point(s) but I think the DEGREE of liberties taken factors into this a lot for more (for me at least). Jackson's Lord Of The Rings trilogy was good enough that I could overlook the few notable discrepencies with the books (e.g. Arwen sub-plot, elves at Helms Deep, changes to Faramir's character etc.). Even with those niggles, I enjoyed and appreciated what Jackson had achieved. But with the Hobbit adaptations, there was far too much unecessary made-up filler that made them more of a slog then enjoyable (and it seems pretty evident that breaking a fairly short book into three sprawling films was obviously Warner Bros milking it for all the cash they could get). I'm incredibly dubious about the Amazon show because they are trying to wring seasons of TV out of some brief appendix notes from LotR - which means most of what they'll be presenting will not only be massively condensed chronologically, but it also won't essentially "be Tolkien" because the stories they are trying to tell weren't even (mostly) written out as proper narratives by Tolkien himself.

I have to disagree Braden, as long as the stories are entertaining I do not see any problem with them. For me Tolkien's books are mere guidelines to construct your story around. I say have at it.

A graphics card is not very good without good drivers. It seems that Intel has the hardware working, but the software drivers need far more attention. Probably going to have to really discount the cards until they get some decent drivers.

I thought the writing on the new Star Trek lacked. Take for example the pirate episode, they have the ship enter a known pirate area with no preparations for pirates and calmly let the pirates take over the ship. It is almost as if they want to paint Pike and his crew as a bunch of fools..

GM's CEO Mary Bara seems bound and determined to bankrupt the company again. They are way behind everyone else on EVs and can't even make batteries without a government handout. Then they top it off with a $1500 mandatory charge on their top models? I would hesitate to invest in any GM stock until they get a new CEO.

I feel sorry for any GM stockholders. Mary Bara is a joke as a CEO. If she is promising something you had better run the other way.

It should be a wake-up call to both AMD and Nvidia to at least attempt to invest in homegrown chip facilities. If China invades Taiwan it might be tough to get their chips made. TSMC is building a facility in Texas, but I am not sure what capabilities it will have.

Highly doubt many school districts will be dropping Chromebooks as there is really no alternative at that price point currently and as secure.

His family owned an Emerald mine, and basically had unlimited cash to be a financier.
He's more like alexander graham bell, takes credit for others ideas.
Sorry I have to disagree. His genius is in taking an idea and implementing it. He knows how to put the right people in place to get something built. That is a skill few have.

Water is a problem in the west, but it is a man-made one. I spent some time in California and worked for people whose entire purpose was improving such. They did manage to get a desalinization plant eventually operating in Carlsbad California, but it took over 10 years of lawsuits from the environmental lobby to achieve such. More plants get refused approval mainly because the idiots running the California coastal commission are beholden to the environmental lobby. If done right, there are no environmental issues and most of these plans are drawn up to eliminate any such issues. It does not matter though, most plans still get rejected and those that actually get approved face a long series of lawsuits. The trick to making these plants very feasible is to include renewable energy construction to provide the needed power. This is extremely doable until you have to factor in the environmental lobby. So the lack of water in California at least can be placed in the laps of the nutty environmentalists because desalinization is only expensive when you have to spend so much time defending the project.

Oh and Blue you are blessed to like the Rangers. We have to suffer from the Columbus Blue Jackets whose modus operandi is to trade away any stars before they get too expensive and receive little in compensation. The rest of the league loves them as the league development team.

Being ‘fully vaccinated’ but not boosted won't stop Omicron

What the article really says is that having vaccines but not the booster still offers "significant and lasting protection against serious illness, hospitalization and death".

However, the lack of booster doesn't have much effect against getting a mild infection.

The LA Times headline on this this was flat out false "Being ‘fully vaccinated’ but not boosted doesn’t help against Omicron, study finds".

Journalistic standards continue to slide downwards into the toilet.

Anyway, yeah, get the booster.
Yep very confusing article. Guess it is hard to find reporters that can write anymore. We got the vaccination, but none of the boosters since everyday you read about someone getting covid that had many boosters. Each to their own.

The thought that the 4090 could cause AMD to worry is rather funny. High-end graphics cards like the 3090 and 4090 represent only a very small portion of the market, The mid-range graphic card market is where the money is to be made.

I am glad Nord is moving those servers, I was about to drop them. As to Gates, I do not think you can ever trust him. For ever good thing he has done, he has done some disreputable things.

I am still running an Nvidia 960. I have been putting off buying a new card, but throwing $700+ at a new card is not currently in my budget.
Using a GPU that is in a server at a remote location still has huge issues with latency. Not sure why people still attempt to push such as most internet hookups just will not support it.

8k resolution is really one of those ideas that look great on paper, but not so in reality. Unless you work on a huge monitor on your desk the chances that you can discern the difference between 4k and 8k is minimal. I have a friend with an 8k TV and even with PS5 games that support such a resolution neither he nor I can tell the difference sitting on the couch about 12 feet away. 8k is still more of a gimmick than something that is needed.
