    Web Cryptocurrency Mining Evolves: Now Keeps Running After Closing Browser

    I suppose viruses nowadays target other vulnerabilites, maybe going with a really outdated OS is not that compromising, I don't know. And about the second part I don't think it was safer before, my mother had her money stolen from her bank account about 15 years ago and was because her laptop...

    Web Cryptocurrency Mining Evolves: Now Keeps Running After Closing Browser

    Ah, the memories. Then you would go clicking making things worse. I feel like I'm 15 with all this shit happening. I suppose with the growing awareness of virus, don't going into strange sites and using antivirus there is a lot of people who forgot or don't know the basics.

    Microsoft Xbox One X Falls Short of Expectations in Japan - Again

    They have different game tastes, if you don't offer something appealing to them of course they will pass. The 360 started to be noticed when an exclusive about idols was launched, it became a pretty popular series even spawning an anime. The psp and vita survive there thanks to a massive...

    EA Forces Shut-Down of Fan-Run Servers for no Longer Supported Battlefield Games

    They could have gone the Unreal 3 way: release a patch allowing creating and joining customs servers and let the community do the rest. If Epic can do it for a single game, EA can do for his entire franchise, almost a million users is not something to scoff at.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Overclocked to 4.1 GHz With Liquid Cooling

    Almost no existant input lag with those, those exist because people wanted vsync without input lag xD. The only moment they can lag is below low fps threshold and those type of games aren't usually very demanding, in fact is common to quit eye candy.

    Where's My Bitcoin? "Cerber" Ransomware Starts Stealing Cryptocurrency Wallets

    The problem started when the barriers and balances were taken out for the sake of "freedom". What common people didn't realize is when some of these people shouted "freedom" they really meant "law of the jungle", as they are the modern predators. And now if you try to put some sanity through...

    How to keep fans of Asus Gtx 970 always in action?

    Probably you considered this already, but stoping fans is not just for having less noise, it extends its lifespan by using them only when needed. And nowadays automatic temp control is very advanced, your card isn't going to suffer if it stops the fans when unneeded. Just a reminder.

    Blizzard in Process of Remastering Diablo 2, Warcraft 3

    I think is the one that needs a remaster more than any other oldie. Old 3d games age like shit, 2d not so much. Even warcraft 2 doesn't look bad compared to nowadays standards in indie games.

    Xbox One X Hardware Specs Give Gaming Desktops a Run for their Money

    That's why console fps have autoaim and have bigger hitboxes? Comparing widowmakers in console and pc can be a painful experience. But whatever. You know, this is what has happened every single time a console was released and lasted for a few months. The only reason this time it will last for...

    ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini Pictured

    Because in my case the gpu slot is very close to the side panel, there is no room for 3 slot cards unless I quit the side panel but I can fit larger gpus with enough room. That's why I said it depends on the case you use, you can fit big gpus in many mini itx setups.

    Good free security combo

    Wow, didn't expect such quick answer, thank you all. Yeah, I tried it. Is just the interface has changed so much and has ads it backed me out at first. But is the same as always, so in the malware department I'm right. I've been toying with the codomo firewall and once I uninstalled the...

    Good free security combo

    I've been using kaspersky for years since it offers enough security and discounts for being a recurrent user, so I have been out of touch of free security solutions. I have an old pc that I will use from time to time for office and little else but I don't want to pay another kaspersky license...
