    BitDefender Researchers Discover "Terrifying" Security Vulnerability in Intel CPUs

    That's exactly why an adblocker should be standard for every web browser. I wouldn't browse the Internet without an adblocker these days.

    BitDefender Researchers Discover "Terrifying" Security Vulnerability in Intel CPUs

    Oh this is good... as much as I hate referencing The Verge, Intel is currently facing 32 lawsuits regarding Spectre and Meltdown and that was back at the beginning of 2018. (Source) How much do you want to bet that the number of lawsuits is much larger now? Yeah...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    It's the world we live in, it's the price we pay for a "free" Internet where there's no paywall everywhere you go.

    Microsoft continues to back off of UWP programs, Win32 re-"elevated to full status"

    Which bothers this living shit out of me!!! TV is landscape, video should be landscape. Get with the program people! I'm happy to see UWP dying, I just hope that .NET doesn't go with it. .NET is a pretty useful framework.

    Remastering "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" with Machine Learning

    Oh yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' about! That's a significant visual upgrade! The first video I was like... meh. This one, I genuinely had a "Holy crap, this looks good!" moment.

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    And yet Google and their GMail product does it all the time and nobody bats an eye. But again... Google good, Microsoft EEEEEEEVIL. And besides, I've looked at the data through the data viewer app and that kind of data isn't being sent at all. OK sure, an inventory of software that's installed...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    Have you actually looked at the data in the Diagnostic Data View app that Microsoft themselves provide? I have, I have looked at the data it collects and sends to Microsoft and I see absolutely nothing in it that is nefarious, bad, evil, or whatever other kind of scary sounding word you can come...

    Win7 EOL Jan 2020!!! really??

    Turn it to Basic Mode and it's fine, even the European Union and its GDPR (which is one of the strongest privacy laws on the books anywhere in the world) say it's fine. If the EU and the GDPR says it fine, who am I to argue?

    Microsoft continues to back off of UWP programs, Win32 re-"elevated to full status"

    Win32 is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good in the sense that you can do a lot of things as a developer and make your program do great things but Win32 can also be used to do A LOT of bad things. Your average user here may disagree with the idea that there should be restrictions in place...

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    Nothing. A lot of the Internet likes to hate Microsoft just because it's cool to hate Microsoft. Even if the Son of God Himself came down from on high and blessed Edge people would still hate it because it's Microsoft.

    PC Sales to Decline in 2019 Amid CPU Shortages, Weak GPU Market

    Blame Intel for that happening. If they didn't sit on their asses and actually innovated there would be a reason to upgrade. Oh but no, Intel was shoveling the same four core-eight thread warmed over garbage for the last five years. Like really, what are we on now? 14nm++++++ (give or take a...

    I can't really tell the difference either.

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    The point I'm making is that because Chromium is open source we don't have to worry about things like back in the old Internet Explorer days. Again, if you don't like the way things are going then fork Chromium and go your own way and change it to fit your project's needs. Look at Vivaldi as an...

    Win Some, Lose Some in Qualcomm vs Apple Saga

    I'd say that it should then be considered to be a FRAND patent because of the absolute necessity of the world that we live in.
