    Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Might Make its Way to Steam Someday

    Yeah, it's called remove the DRM from the game and click "add to steam library". You can do that now.

    Lucasfilm Rumored to Ditch EA for a New Game Publisher

    Ubisoft isn't based in america, that's why. America is significantly more anti-consumer, taxes on the rich are much lower, and worker's rights are in the shitter. It's a whole culture that's built around putting the rich on a pedestal while fucking over everyday people, and that most certainly...

    AMD's PlayReady 3.0 In Polaris, Vega GPUs, APUs to Enable 4K HDR Streaming on PC

    Oh praise be our corporate overlords that they allow us to view 4K, even though tablets and smartphones can do it but for some reason it's now a "perk" on our fucking high end PCs.

    Intel Unveils Discrete GPU Prototype Development

    This isn't Raja's first step. He just joined the company last month, no way he did these designs in a month. Raja will have a hand in their next gen architecture and current / future drivers.

    AMD Ryzen 2000-series "Pinnacle Ridge" CPUs Get Soldered IHS

    Lol, what? You do know that Zen engineering samples ran at 3.0 - 3.2 GHz right? Their clock speed don't mean squat to the final product.

    Windows 10 UWP Protection Kicks the Bucket

    Who doesn't like GOG? Games are cheap, super easy to download, and they even provide additional extras like what steam does. DRM free means you can play without internet and don't have to load up an additional piece of software each time you want to play. Keep a copy for backup too if you want .

    Intel Core i5-8500, i5-8600 (non-K), and Celeron G49xx Listed on Newegg

    Isn't this also cherry picking? FM2 CPUs work on FM2+ motherboards. Ditto goes from AM2+. FM1 was only used for low end APUs and athlons. You'd have to include all of Intel's low end BGA and atom sockets if you included that. Why don't we just put the semantics aside and simply agree that...

    Microsoft Launches the Surface Precision Mouse for $99.99

    I'm not a fan of Apple but this mouse actually makes them look good in comparison. In either case you get medicore quality but at least with apple they are smart enough to know ease of use is important. Microsoft was so cheap here they couldn't even bother to put in a USB C port. Who wants to...

    Google To Integrate "Not Secure" Tag in Websites Sans HTTPS

    Yeah, I agree on that point. My only worry is that we aren't staying ahead of the curve. Hackers at some point will have the resources and we have to be prepared. If I've been taught anything by the last 2 years, it's that you want to be proactive with your security measures.

    NVIDIA Turing is a Crypto-mining Chip Jen-Hsun Huang Made to Save PC Gaming

    So either I'm missing something or there's not many details here. I'm looking for release dates. This don't mean much if it's launched 2 years from now and the coin bubble has popped.

    Google To Integrate "Not Secure" Tag in Websites Sans HTTPS

    HTTPS is great as a basic level of security but it's time we move past it. It's already been proved hackable with multiple different methods, including tools used by the NSA. Once these methods become more common place, they will become a real issue.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    I think we all know you are talking to yourself here. For example: http://www.zdnet.com/article/todays-most-popular-operating-systems/ And a funny excerpt from the article "NetMarketShare and StatCounter are both popular for their operating system and web browser measurements, but their...

    AMD Intros the Wraith Prism CPU Cooler

    Amazon reviews aren't reliable. I haven't seen anything on forums or the AMD subreddit about this issue.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    You might as well have qouted breitbart news as a good source, that's the quality of the website you linked. I pointed out errors and you couldn't refute them. " but you would likely just rationalize and disregard it" Oh noes! I'm a rational person! Whoa, I must be bad in the era of fake...

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    The source for that data is StatCounter, a web analytics tool you use in conjunction with your website. There are three problems with that 1. Websites that use StatCounter are not an accurate representation of OS Marketshare. There are a billion variables in the way of a clear analysis and...
