I thought Android phones were supposed to be cheaper in exchange for your data/tracking information?

Does any other phone "throttle" like apples?
When is that amazing battery tech gonna reach the consumer?


Any tech running off a battery has pretty robust set of power management features, CPU throttling being one.

Can anyone enlighten me on how reappropriating a political hashtag can be classified as transphobic?

It's seen as delegitimizing the intent of the message.

It's like McDonalds posting an ad with the hashtag #Ihaveadream on the day MLK was killed. Or someone saying 'all lives matter' in response to 'black lives matter'.

The only way I could see FB being responsible is if they presented the job in a light that made it seem less toxic than it was. Of course you are going to have to read bad things and see bad images as an internet moderator. It's like a zoo landscaper saying, "NO one said I'd have to work around animals!"

Beheading videos are as common as animals at the zoo for you? Really? I'm pretty sure most people that moderate sites don't expect to come across that garbage often, if at all.

Someone had to write a book about what everyone, except right wing terrorists, knows to be true.


You need to watch Active Measures.. it's a bit ahead of the news cycle curve.

It'll be outsourced like Facebook and others do. These people burn-out and/or end up with mental health problems pretty quickly. I can't imagine Valve wants those types in their health insurance pool.

FDEV should have understood that people outfitting their ships for exploration would be royally pissed over having to deal with Thargoids... my guess is most of the ships probably weren't outfitted with any weapons and/or shieldless. Maybe FDEV is just trying to reinforce the "Dangerous" part these days.

The Dangerous in Elite Dangerous is for dangerously unqualified developers.

I think I rage uninstalled this. it was after cheesing a hard fight in a sewer and then opening a door and everyone exploded or death fogged out. Game mechanics are fun, but when you have to spend more time on Youtube learning how to progress without ruining quests, it wears thin.

I know they were fighting to label crate/key gambling schemes as "in-game purchases". I guess this, plus some legislator payoffs, will keep the gambling geyser flowing.

Lyft is teaming up with the Urban League, TurboVote and others to offer free and half-price rides on Election Day

Good on Lyft. I know corporations always serve their self interests, but at least in this case there's an ancillary benefit to society.

So you can find out quickly that your voter registration has been purged!

But although the researchers did find low levels of drinking offered some protection from heart disease, and possibly from diabetes and stroke, the benefits were far outweighed by alcoholís harmful effects, they said.

Well of course their are pros and cons to booze. It's the same for virtually everything else. Booze thins the blood and combats atherosclerosis. Red wines like Nebbiolo - actually it's only Nebbiolo - has high levels of resveratrol which has all kinds of benefits. I think any study which tells people consume anything in large amounts or abstain entirely are suspect. Hence the old adage about moderation in all things still being the soundest wisdom of all.

I myself maintain my daily moderate dose of snorting asbestos.

Apparently Rage 2 and future Bethesda titles will follow this as well. Can't say that I blame them. Steam has been rent-seeking for the past 10 years at this point. Valve's focus is on gambling crates and Lord of the Flies internal jousting.

It's within the free speech rights of Comcast to selectively block mentions of 'Mueller' while pushing articles from Fox News and Info Wars. Doesn't seem too far fetched in the current political environment.
