    Intel to Deploy Management Engine Lock to Prevent Disabling, Rollback

    I'm thinking it was because the story started out that way, essentially, and he didn't fact check it.

    Do you let your HDD go to sleep during operation?

    Define "longevity" in this case. My, although somewhat rarely accessed, HDDs have a few thousand starts after several years. The drives will fail for other reasons long before the motors give up. But as you said, that depends on how agressive the sleep state is. Didn't the WD Green drives of...

    Intel Announces New Pentium Silver and Celeron Processors

    It is, but not in places most consumers would look. I really would like to know how the Goldmont chips performs, or even Cherry Trail.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    Well I got through Warlords of Draenor on a c2d e8400 and a GT530 (same card)... The GDDR5 version of the GT730 wasn't all that bad tbh, and that was reviewed on some smaller sites. As for this, it's an issue if there's no way of telling pre purchase what you're getting, and if the price is the...

    AMD Develops GDDR6 Controller for Next-generation Graphics Cards, Accelerators

    I'd say it does. That Intel+Vega thing has HBM and there it makes perfect sense.

    Microsoft Launches Windows 10 for ARM, Always Connected PCs

    They ditched RT ages ago, didn't they? In some markets (Italy being one iirc) they reached 15%. Then they just dumped everything.

    So NCIX Is Bankrupt.

    That wasn't humor, just an expression of hope. All well and proper. EDIT: And if you consider that "humor" I can see how you find him funny. As for the store, never heard of them, speaking as a european.

    AMD Second-generation Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" Confirmed to Support AM4

    I've obviously not followed the thread, but This matters less now than when you could upgrade from a low end Athlon II to an AMD FX on the same motherboard, but it's still a nice thing to have.

    Pricecheck on my old pc.

    And everyone's talking about how Sandy/Ivy Bridge is still good enough but LGA1155 motherboards are scrap? The same goes for DDR3. Is supply really that high in the US?

    Pricecheck on my old pc.

    More than that, at least where I live, at least if you part them out. Decent LGA1155 motherboard, 4GB DDR3 sticks... They don't come for free. Even the GPU has some life to it, especially least if it's GDDR5.

    What are you playing?

    Well I lost the Dwarf Fortress save, so going for Stellaris for relaxation. I had massive amounts of hematite on the map after several embark sites with no iron at all (but lots of useless gold). At least there's no piles of vomit in Stellaris.

    Weird sound and pc stucks?

    I'd say for sure it's a hardware problem anyway. And how would you define "breaking" if not causing this problem? Could be a faulty motherboard, or RAM. Or was it the GPU? I seem to recall it being the PSU though...

    Weird sound and pc stucks?

    I've had this, turned out to be the ... PSU iirc.

    Microsoft Office Makes it to Chromebooks, Still Eludes Other Linux Distros

    "Fully functional" depends alot on what you do. Personally I find everything except Excel to be annoying, and that is even when I now I have used Libreoffice and its terrible UI for quite some time. For many users they are just not cutting it, some of the reasons are because everyone else is using.
