    Ai Bots that can do School Homework

    The way they advertise Grammerly on youTube you'd basically think writing your own work was for losers at this point................

    Quebec judge authorizes class-action lawsuit over 'addictive' Fortnite game

    I am with you on the concept of Marketing in general. Wanna solve half the worlds problems? Time to take Applebee's, Pizza Hut and every other chain restaurant to task for selling shit-tier drugs to the public...seriously I wonder if all of those companies are funded by the secret Diabetes...

    DDR5-8000 coming soon to an Intel server near you

    Needs RGB and some sharp-edged heat spreaders to really impress, though...doesn't matter if they're in a server rack buried in a data center or not, flashing lights and sharp edges sell ram, this is fact.

    Quebec judge authorizes class-action lawsuit over 'addictive' Fortnite game

    Respectfully, No. :) We could debate this for hours so let's not, but if you had friends...IN COLLEGE....who failed out because they could NOT stop playing Counter Strike, that makes them (and their parents) *fucking useless* and the world is better off without them in the post-collegiate work...

    Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won't let them return the cards

    Scalpers around the holidays will buy anything and try to scalp it......toilet paper, breath mints, GPU's..anything that might be considered an impulse or desperation buy for an Xmas Present....tit might be hard to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X now...but the second or third week of January there...

    Why IBM chose the 8088.

    Very interesting article, I had no idea that the 68000 the Amiga 500 used was actually developed nearly a decade earlier.........those were the days when as a kid an adult would find out you "liked computers" and would then hand you a copy of BYTE magazine....which is akin to finding out someone...

    One Weird Trick Relaunching RTX 4080 12GB as 4070 Ti

    The real crime isn't the name *correction* they are implementing.....and I'd argue this isn't even a Ti part but a standard 70 series card.......the real crime will be their pricing model :)

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    Couple of things.....I've only ever bought my Amazon devices off WOOT refurbished on the cheap. And I only have 1 echo device, its in my kitchen where it's welcome to eavesdrop on all the conversation it wants to, I really don't care...I don't discuss private matters in the kitchen cuz I know...

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    They have a problem with marketing the features of these devices. I'm a nerd and even I have a hard time getting the pairing and security set up (having to first even see if there is a skill, and if not if there is a hack to create the skill I need the thing to do)........but then the problem...

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    I don't believe we were arguing percentages or likelihood just that, to make a statement like "It's not a thing anymore" is not true. I cited a few examples of problems, including an LCD that I managed to break.....and yes I know that was as much of a "WTF?" moment for me as anyone else and I'm...

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    Newsflash: Any display technology is inherently prone to premature aging, which is another way of saying burn-in/static image retention or uneven pixel/phosphor wear. Now, how you USE your display and will it affect YOU....that's entirely dependent on your relationship with the technology...

    Seagate’s Second Gen Mach.2 Drives Are as Fast as SATA SSDs

    Understood, but pretty sure your media streams just fine off 5400 rpm drives, no?

    Seagate’s Second Gen Mach.2 Drives Are as Fast as SATA SSDs

    Its 2022, Hard Drives should be archival.....they shouldn't be operational, we have better parts for that (see comments above, namely anything solid-state). While I applaud this, I'm not sure who the market is....if all drives eventually become this technology, then cool, but between you, me...

    Microsoft cancels "new" console

    I think Microsoft must be balancing the issue of having to provide adequate cloud hosting for the VM's they'd need to support the platform while looking at the Xbox Series S probably becoming a $199 part pretty soon considering its age and fairly lackluster performance (In some ways its better...
