    Steam Link App for iOS Rejected by Apple

    They cater to non techies first. And a lot more people are non techies out there than there are techies. Though that's not the only explanation.

    Philips 436M6VBPAB Monitor Gets DisplayHDR 1000 Certification

    My gut feeling tells me these HDR400/600/1000 certifications are being handed out like cookies. Probably to create the impression there's HDR capable equipment out there and entice producers of HDR content.

    Steam Link App for iOS Rejected by Apple

    It would let you buy games from something else than the app store, denying Apple's 30% cut.

    Philips 436M6VBPAB Monitor Gets DisplayHDR 1000 Certification

    Weird, as even HDR600 requires local dimming. HDR400 only needs global dimming. As expected, Philips=crap.

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 397.93 WHQL Drivers

    Ne Neah, my PC is not collecting dust. I have a tablet for a quick browse, but I will not trade my 24" 16:10 monitor for anything. I'll trade it for a 32" at some point, but they need to come down in price quite a bit before that happens.

    Acer Launches Two Premium 13-inch Chromebooks Designed for Business Use

    I wonder what's "business" about a Chromebook when most companies shun the use of Google's cloud.

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 397.93 WHQL Drivers

    Yeah, the moment I realized I simply don't have time for games anymore is the moment I no longer needed to boot into Windows. This was followed by the moment I realized my printer is just an expensive paperweight for Arch Linux :D

    Steam Link App for iOS Rejected by Apple

    You're not in their target segment, that's why you do see things the same way. A non tech savvy user can both be mesmerized by things that appear to magically work and completely oblivious to the fact their device may have missing features or is making them jump through unnecessary hoops. And...

    Steam Link App for iOS Rejected by Apple

    Isn't whining about Apple's ecosystem being a walled garden a bit redundant? People are an interesting bunch on their own, though. Windows adds an app store, nobody wants it. Apple adds an app store (with no possibility to bypass it), people flock to iOS. Just try to come up with a business...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 397.93 WHQL Drivers

    Meh, I'd have to boot into Windows to check all that :P

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 397.93 WHQL Drivers

    You know, you can simply choose custom install and uncheck the whole GFE thing. Problem solved. (I also uncheck the 3D crap I don't need) And if you want the absolute minimum installed, do not install anything and let Windows install just the graphics driver. Both of the above are more sensible...

    Philips 436M6VBPAB Monitor Gets DisplayHDR 1000 Certification

    Well, reviews don't cover QC or long term reliability anyway. And when it comes to backlight bleed, there's always the "ymmv" phrase included.

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 397.93 WHQL Drivers

    Funny how today we get drivers from both AMD and Nvidia, but they don't include optimizations for the same titles.

    Philips 436M6VBPAB Monitor Gets DisplayHDR 1000 Certification

    If it performs. I expect all sorts of backlight bleeding and QC issues from these guys.
