    Powerbeats Bluetooth Headphones stuttering audio

    I have a pair of Powerbeats bluetooth headphones. When synced to a Windows 10 PC the audio stutters about once every 10 seconds. The BT receiver on the PC is an Iogear GBU421 bluetooth 2.0 device purchased in 2009. I am wondering if the bluetooth protocol is too old to function properly with...

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    For anyone shopping right now I recommend carefully comparing the prices across models. For instance, I just checked and a 3070 FE is available at Bestbuy for $500 but could find no 3060 ti models below $500. Obviously the 3070 is a better GPU.

    Celebrate: I beat a game at the arcade! SF4.

    Just the credits, and they do not even let you enter initials for a high score. Still, it was such an achievement that we immediately left the arcade. Had to leave the place on a high point, lol.

    Celebrate: I beat a game at the arcade! SF4.

    So I was off on vacation for a couple of days with the wife. We went into a video game arcade in Santa Cruz, CA. Now, I had already played SF2 and SF 4 in the past, the latter on Xbox 360. So of course I knew the basics (combos, specials, super specials, etc). I managed to beat the game with...

    Gigabyte 6900xt $900 after rebate newegg

    Not to get off topic but since people are commenting on Newegg being an unethical seller. Watch these for background info. I have never had a negative experience with newegg but have a family member who did.

    Anyone else got a 6700XT?

    How about some benchmarks? I was in the market for a 6700xt, but lucked out and got a 3060 ti instead. EVGA queue, only took about a year!
