I'm wondering if the total Stadia subscriber count is so low that all these refends and free games don't amount to any real dollar cost for Google or Ubisoft : )

Listening to relaxing music can improve cognitive performance, study suggests
I'm not sure what exactly they're classifying as "relaxing", though. One of the categories is "piano". I can certainly think of a number of piano pieces that were made to be anything but relaxing.

The paper doesn't list the pieces of music used in the study, but does have a 15-minute sample of the thee styles in a google drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15HkqrUIAkzy-ZyKfCVeg4Yc7dNunO93K . The jazz is slow and mostly piano, and the piano piece sounds sort of jazzy to me :)

Supraland is amazing! A massive world, even if it is only one yard square. Many varied puzzles and mechanics, and the whole thing was written by one person.

I've never grabbed one of these even though I've got Prime.
I've avoided Far Cry 4 because of the ubi crap login.
So this is probably a dumb question (my specialty) do Amazon games require 3rd party logins?
They usually don't, but the ones that do say so. The Far Cry tile says "Far Cry 4 on Ubisoft Connect", and there's a little Ubisoft logo in the corner. All the other games just have a little crown in the corner, which means the games are Prime-native and don't require any other logins.

But Twitter has never given an estimate on the bot percentage of total accounts - only the bot percentage of daily active users, which is the only number that advertisers care about (i.e. how many of the ads I'm paying for are not being read?). For all we know, 95% of the total accounts could be bots that registered, tweeted once, and never are used again. But does that number really matter?

Life's too short to give a crap about your PC's cable management.
Gah! This clickbait worked... I'm triggered!
I really like the Velcro thin ties for cable management. Any place there are two or more cables running, they get velcro'ed together. Extra cable looped around itself? Velcro. And it's easy to undo when you need to add or remove a cable.

Not going to lie, I lowkey want that Azza pyramid PC case no matter how ridiculously limited it would be. I would stuff everything RGB I possibly could in to that thing, too.

Between the taskbar and the TPM requirements, no, I'll pass on Windows 11.
Personally I wished the UI had stopped at Windows 7. I was even OK with Windows 8.1.
I'm sick of the constant UI revisions.
I prefer the Windows Classic UI myself, and built a custom Stardock Curtains theme that brings it to W10. The 3d borders make it obvious where overlapping windows end, and it's a lot easier to tell whether a window has focus. I can't tell you how many times I've watched a co-worker type something into the wrong window on his W11 machine because he didn't know which window was active.

I think this is the first time Amazon has added games from their Luna service, too. They all say "Play until April 1", though, so they're not quite as free as the other titles.

Wouldn't temporarily removing the masts be the cheaper solution, or are they not just bolted on? It's not like they're trying to sail the boat down the river.

So far I haven't heard anyone say whether this show is going to be remakes of the original episodes, or all new ones. The first teaser included a lot of references to the original, but a lot of them were late in the series so they could have just been one-off 5-second bits for the teaser. Also Edward is conspicuously absent and some of the episodes would be hard to do without her. All-new episodes set after the original series wouldn't have that problem.

Farscape was good, but maybe should have ended a season early. I remember a lot of bad Scorpius episodes.

Part of the EU proposal is unbundling chargers from sales of all devices, since most people already have too many of them.

I bought this game a few years ago on Steam. Totally unique gameplay - the only pinball metroidvania in the world, and the music is excellent.
