    ARM Revokes Huawei's Chip IP Licence

    Isn't everyone? Why should I -and practically half the world- as a third party, count this against the CPC alone? We could play this whatabout game forever, and I'm pretty sure neither of us would have shortage of cases and incidents to back their arguments with. There are no rules. At least...

    ARM Revokes Huawei's Chip IP Licence

    Who said anything about domination? We should avoid this false dilemma. I'm hoping for the threat to monopolies that is "alternatives." But if we entertained, for the sake of argument, the idea of the CPC helming things, for Africans at least, the differences are either insignificant or giving...

    Microsoft Advocates for Tighter Governmental Regulation of the Tech Sector With "Strong Enforcement Provisions"

    ARM Revokes Huawei's Chip IP Licence

    It's refreshing to see that the UK's still following the Blair era whoring to the US. </s> On a more serious note, I really hope Huawei/China start fighting this with all the -economical- teeth and claws they have. Not really a fan of this de facto monopoly the US has on the tech world, and...

    U.S. Tech Industry, Including Google, Microsoft, Intel, and Qualcomm, Ban Huawei

    The "operating system" is not the issue here, never was. Huawei would be adding too much cost if it went for its own OS, when a free(!) one is available and maintained by some of the brightest minds the industry has. Exporting their homegrown, Gapps-replacement services is probably the safest...

    Which Camera apps do you use?

    Stock camera, but I keep Open Camera installed and configured for when I'm looking to take shots that I don't want to be found easily when the phone is searched... For general point-and-shoot photography, I really don't see a need to have something other than Google's cam. But of course, OEMs...

    Is it a bad habit to keep hibernating PC instead of shutting it down ?

    Afaik, hibernation is an ACPI state, not something Microsoft exclusively controls to dictate whether the concept is desktop thing or a laptop thing. Sure, laptops see more practical uses for it, but that doesn't really prevent anyone with supported desktop hardware -which is practically all...

    Is it a bad habit to keep hibernating PC instead of shutting it down ?

    Well, technically speaking a lot do load on "startup," unless of course you're not having any software (besides the OS itself) running when you hibernate, which imo defeats the purpose of hibernation. :| I personally use hybrid sleep. Shutdowns are only for maintenance stuff (updates, hardware...

    Apple Reports Second Quarter Results: Services Revenues Reach $11.5 Billion

    You pay a lot more than hardware's cost for a phone these days, your identity and very soul, for example.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    The new UT does and the rest came before the EGS was a thing, but that wasn't my point. My point wasn't about which platforms those titles were published on, my point was that Epic has a considerably high brand recognition and are a well-known, major player in the video games industry. Even...

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    As much as I like Sweeny and Epic, this over-the-top idealism is provoking my cynisim. Still, if the major stakeholders in this fiasco, the developers, seem to be on Epic's side, even with all the features that make Steam a "significantly better platform" (c'mon now, do achievments and other...

    Digital Storm and TechPowerUp Present Lynx Gaming Desktop Giveaway

    So is this merely a matter of shipping or does the participant HAVE to be, officially, a US/CA citizen? I mean, is it possible for a non US/CA resident to participate and have it shipped to a north American address (e.g. a relative's)?
