    Black Holes

    Ok, here is my theory. It incorporates black holes within the line of thinking. Think of a universe as a sphere, that comes from a point (big bang). Now think of several sphere universes, all overlapping. Now think that our own 'observable universe', here on earth, occurs within several...

    U.S. Government Shutdown Hits Several CES Exhibitors Hard

    As the delay became obvious, why couldn't they just put a few) people on a plane, with their xx number of prototypes, shipping from place of manufacture, to the location of CES? A few plane tickets, with excess baggage isn't that much if you have to have something there in time, and normal...

    Absurd GPU Prices

    With the current 20% off sale, a few sellers have the gigabyte 1080ti wb them for $1135.20 (0.8 x 1419). https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/410705 I also saw a gigabyte one with the rad attached going for I think 1150 or so, when futu and such have their 20% off tech sales.

    Absurd GPU Prices

    The mining boom late last year inflated the price of gpu's for a few months, til the difficulty rose enough, and the price of the coins dropped so much, that it was no longer economical to mine. This left a glutton of 1060's, 1070's and 1080's in the market, used and new. And because AMD...

    Party Like It's 1998: Winamp to See New 2019 Release With Modern Features

    As above, I use aimp on android. It's about the only one where u can line up anything in your playlist easily, similiar to the original winamp on pc (2.95 version etc). The android version of winamp is a travesty, as it's nothing like the original pc version. I still use winamp on pc :) All...

    Philips Launches the 356M6QJAB/11 1080p, 35" FreeSync Monitor With Ambiglow Tech

    It would be great if manufactures put out a 36" 1440p 144Hz monitor. 36" @ 1440p has the same dot pitch as 27" @ 1080p. It would suit alot of people I think.
