How about a how long will the Google Pixel be supported and receive security updates from Google test?
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+long+will+google+pixel+get+updates

Thanks, but we all knew the answer already. It was one thing when they charged $350, but at $650 it is a bit rich for a device that will be abandoned in two years. (2 years if you buy now, less for everyone else.)

CCleaner hides a Chrome install and changes your default browser now. It caught me by surprise. I reviewed the install options and the custom install options. It doesn't give you a choice not to install chrome.

I just checked mine going from 5.22 (7.86mb installer) to 5.23 (7.89mb installer) and didn't get anything else installed?!

I know a lot of programs are using chrome now to render an options window or something, but ccleaner is not one of them.

This is not normal trading or market place transactions.. it's gambling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_gambling

Valve claims they can not control it, which is quite a convenient argument to defend their bottom line.

The planets are first procedurally generated using seed information. Then an artist goes in and can paint on biomes on the macro to normal level. They can also place down objects. These objects could be fully hand crafted landing zones, or just trees, rocks and people.

Chris wants no planets, or moons that are just procedurally generated. He wants at least some artist sculpting, even if it is a barren rock moon.

The terrain generating tech is 10-15 years old so it's really nothing new. It does strike me as disingenuous to label the video Procedural Plants, when 95% of what they displayed was artist created and scripted (only the section between the landing pad and the first wreckage looked procedural). Remove all that and it's NMS 2.0.

It's all about hat/skin revenu, and whatever they are pulling in from item gambling these days. The patch will probably add paid sprays like CS:GO, or some other non-gameplay related cash grab.

Never thought I'd say it.. but Valve sucks at making games now. Everyone talks about HL3, but at this rate it'll just be Pokerstars, Valve edition.

Way to have an open mind about things .... totally your choice but what if the gameplay is good with some new freshness to it and is a lot of fun? Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Anyone who is playing want to give us some feed back.

I know that there is some issues currently (locked 30fps and some talking about crashing - that can be true for some and not for others) but the game does still seem interesting to me.

Any views (about the game) good or bad, would be good thanks. (Unless your purple, I don't like my Bluesnews comments from people who are purple )

Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Well ya said it , why does everything today have to be black or gay or free breast , just ain't into all this politically correctnes it ruins more than it helps Clown Nothing helps if ya force it onto people....nothing!

Playing a black guy in this context is very interesting. What I hate is the disclaimer at the start of the game, apologizing to nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers and SJW.

Imagine a history teacher apologizing for talking about slavery back in the days.

It seemed like a well worded disclaimer to me. Of course it triggered someone.

Just pop for another 512M SSD. They're only about $100, and black Friday is coming up soon. Does your machine have room for only one drive?

500Gb 850 evo in Canada is about $220 now.. great idea on black Friday however. Samsung usually has some good deals.

80GB! Doom and DX:MD are taking up 110Gb with no DLC, another 10Gb for Overwatch and my game drive is just about tapped out.

I need to rethink my future game storage if this keeps up. I was thinking of a 500Gb SSD for both Windows and games, but at this rate 750 Gb or higher might be needed.

(Not to mention 80Gb is 1/4 of my monthly bandwidth..)

I spent yesterday going back to 8.1 on my work Macbook. After the Anniversary Update the system just became lethargic. I also noticed a lot of system settings were changed back to default for some reason and apps were reinstalled.

8.1 with security updates only for now. I hope MS can right the ship.

You know.. I get it. The last 30 years has sucked for the middle class and poor. The nuclear option is somewhat attractive as opposed to the status guo. What's bizarre to me is how someone like Donald Trump could represent that solution.

The debate said a lot to me.. He is barely articulate but somehow manages to command this online 4chan/Russian/wikileaks/400 lb basement dweller social media army. It's the ultimate manifest of the worst online behavior.

I bought U6 when it came out. Spent about half a day trying to free up the 600k base ram to allow me to run the game, before finally realising that the "Amstrad 1512" I was trying to install it on only had 512k base and no amount of buggering about with config.sys or autoexec.bat would get it to run.
I was gutted.
Kept the game though. Still got the box on the shelf, cloth map and moonstone included

The first computer my parents had was an Amstrad PC5120 from Radio Shack.. in glorious CGA. I still have some Big Blue Disks and some TSR D&D games laying around somewhere.

Here is the Doom 2016 soundtrack.. Excellent piece of music if you're into the genre.

UPS, USPS, and to a lessor extent Fedex, are probably the better services in the US. In Canada the best service is usually Canada Post (but pricey). UPS Canada and DHL Canada are just not well run here.

I kinda feel bad for them.. it's a pretty experience, but not much of a game. It could have been viable with some simple fixes I think, even in it's current state. I just don't think they had the know-how or the vision to do it. It's like how Doom 3 was an excellent tech demo, just an awful game.

I have far more frustration with micro transactions, in-app purchases, DLC, season passes, third party launchers, creating accounts to play a game, online only games that aren't multiplayer, etc. Puke

She is situational and much easier to use with a little set up time on defense.. I can only assume the changes mean an offensive Symmetra? This will be interesting.

Oppo makes some of the best featured prosumer Blu-ray players on the market, and for very reasonable prices considering the hardware and inclusion of rs-232. Xbox/PS, or people who buy the cheapest of whatever, are not who these are market toward.

Still rocking a BDP-83 SE here!
