Instead of a one time $15 purchase you're now offered a discounted subscription. Won't be long before the os is subscription based.

It will not be subscription based

Yes, my annoyance with the wires dangling and touching my cheeks and neck is definitely some personal issue specific to me, never said otherwise. But this is probably only a problem because I have just one wired earbud headphones with stiff cables that have constant tension in them unless I spend time to unwind them.

But most of your list has nothing to do with not being able to have an adapter on the headphones to plug into the phone usb port instead of 3.5mm port

Ok, I can agree on the batteries part, although it has not been a problem for me with bluetooth since I am not a heavy user.

The drawbacks are that the wires are constantly getting tangled together and also it can be annoying when they touch my skin.

But my question still stands: why can't you just have an adapter for the phone permanently attached to the 3.5mm plug on the headphones and enjoy the benefits of portless phones.

Can somebody explain to me what the big deal is regarding the headphone jack?

If you really like wired headphones, can't you buy an adapter and have it permanently attached to them?

I am not a frequent user of headphones but I have Bose bluetooth noise canceling at work and Apple airpods to use in bed, so I don't use my wired headphones anymore.

That Reddit post is total bullshit, I think the dev response in it is pretty good actually.

That gunsmithing feature looks really good, will be interesting to see how many options we can have and more importantly what practical effect they will have on the gun handling and feel. This is one feature I really like about Escape from Tarkov and they apparently have just copied that functionality. In EFT you have an economy that limits you from always going for the meta-build, will be interesting to see how COD will handle that.

Microsoft Criticized For VPN-Breaking Windows 10 Update.

ZDNET criticism on the Forbes artice

The Windows 10 update FUD continues... and Forbes is losing all credibility by being reduced to being a simple blog page for various freelancers.

Villeneuve To Helm "Dune" TV Series Pilot.

Oooh yeah.. I just loved his Blade Runner 2049 and I read all the Dune books back when I was a teenager so I am quite hopeful that the story will be properly handled this time.

Trials with juries is the dumbest thing ever. Probably makes for better TV shows (don't remember any courtroom based TV shows outside of US) but having to convince a bunch of idiots about the validity of your cause not the best way to achieve justice.

so.. they have revenue 2011 - 2018 for approximately the same amount as Fortnite brought in for the first 20 days of May this year. Why is the money spent on this game so hot topic?

"Buying batteries from ebay" is precisely why no flagship phone has easily replaceable batteries anymore. When they blow up (or fail in other ways) it's not the dodgy battery manufacturer that gets the blame, but the phone manufacturer.

The same applies to memory cards, the SD cards are failing all the time so it's better for any phone manufacturer who likes their reputation, to lock everything down.

I gave daredevil a chance for one season because a buddy of mine recommended it, and I hated it. Permanently extinquished any interest in superheroes for me. Too much drama and too little awesomeness.

I doubt any of the original buyers will mind too much since the watch is already collecting dust somewhere.

Also, it's not "ruined", it just doesn't get the latest version of the OS.

The website and this story are truly horrible.

Nobody is replicating this guys results, so there is definitely something off about his test. Everybody else is reporting small difference on the same test app.

Edit: here is a link that confirms what I am saying https://yalujailbreak.net/ios-1122-update-slowdown/ where they even measure increase in speed compared to previous version.

Altered Carbon might just be what I need to flush Blade Runner #### from my memory.

Funny how split people are about Blade Runner 2049, I personally loved it. Even went twice to the movie theater to watch it, something I haven't done to any other movie for at least 20 years.

But looking forward to Altered Carbon, looks amazing.

Thanks, that was actually a really useful post. I haven't really put an effort into understanding the latest outrage with this game since I have pretty much lost interest in the whole multiplayer FPS genre.

Nice to see that players are not putting up with this Pay2Win crap anymore.
