    Android App Locks Your Phone If You Use It Too Much

    It seems stupid at first glance but some people need a crutch, to sit an bitch about someone creating a crutch when there's demand.. just as silly. I have no problem engaging people using a phone, maybe the topic is boring? I don't care if people look at shit when the topic isn't interesting...

    Wired Hates Far Cry 5 - No One Cares

    I thought it odd they wanted to sneak up on sleeping children and families at night. Not considering that having such aspects in the game would cause a media riot. Maybe it's a bucket-list thing?

    iPhone X Face ID Again Unlocked with Mask, Even with “Require Attention” Turned On

    Wouldn't police or a robber just point the phone at your face after they carefully clubbed the back of your skull? Never the front, duh.

ExFat is good for cameras and CE devices.. no implied security when you can pop out the drive and shove it in your TV or printer kiosk...

    Logitech Flow Lets You Control Three Computers with One Mouse

    Another vote for synergy, osx, windows and *nix for long enough I can't remember exactly when I switched to it. I do remember having to maintain my own ssh tunnel scheme to keep everything encrypted for at least a decade.

    Stanford Economist: All Fossil-Fuel Vehicles Will Vanish in 8 Years

    Actually, I'd take an electric driveline for one of my wranglers. It's gotta be able to take harsh conditions and have the ability to swap out batteries on the trail. Ideally lighter than a diesel swap. I'd need consistent torque over a long period of time... But this guy's 8 year theory is a...

    I really enjoyed Farcry Primal, but the thing that got my attention was mention of Guillemot. Anyone else own a 3D Prophet 4500?
