    Microsoft Out to Destroy Steam: Epic's Tim Sweeney

    No, it's not. You can run non App Store apps on a Mac, you'll have to go through Gatekeeper on the first startup, but after that it runs just fine. MacOS is not iOS.

    Smart TV or cheap media center PC?

    Your NAS supports Plex (according to WD), it could be as simple as getting a Roku/Fire TV or Stick/4th Gen Apple TV/Chromecast whatever and plugging it into an HDMI port for as low as $30-40 and streaming to it. Before spending that money you could even test it by enabling the server and testing...

    [FS][US] 2 x ATI 5770 1GB pci-e Apple version

    I can't speak to more recent machines, but in the past they had different firmware, I have an old BFG 7800 GS (I think?) that I flashed to work in a Rev A. Power Mac G5.

    Sure, I'm in for the very generous giveaway, a little found cash towards replacing an older machine is always nice.

    Yeah I'd like an X minute snooze and a simple preference switch to change from one usage preference to another, it's annoying to go and modify the setting when I just want a free core or two for a while.

    Will GTX 980Ti fit inside my current system specs?

    Speaking specifically of Witcher 3, running it on my system (780ti, 1080p) I've actually taken running Bonic @100% settings while I'm gaming and the only actual slowdown between crunching and not crunching are slower load times and a slight jerkiness for about 5 seconds after a zone load. Other...

    A Memorial to Kreij - Holiday 2017 PC build and Giveaway- Congrats to the Winners!!!

    @Deelron Opting in for myself (Grand Prize, + Prize 1), a more modern system would be spiffy. The old machine would be able to crunch a bit more, all my machines crush while idle anyway. Holiday moments in the past were good, but my son is now 3 and a half and the concept of the world is just...

    Pro's and cons of updating to ios9

    I haven't had any problems on my Air 2 or the 1st gen Mini in my house (along with other extended family menses I long distance tech support), in particular the mini hasn't shown any (more) of the slowdown that it did going from iOS 7 to 8 (which it shouldn't given what the update is, but...

    Does ad blocking herald the end of the free internet?

    After hearing Marco talk in a few different places it's not surprising he pulled it.

    Ipad sucking too much bandwith

    This is the actual answer, it has nothing to do with the device and everything to do with HD video services monopolizing bandwidth (I've seen the same issue from Amazon streaming on an Amazon device on a 12/1 connection before I changed to a more robust 105/15 one). Just be careful not to set...

    Has everyone read: Reasons We Share Personal Data section in Windows 10 Microsoft Privacy Statement

    Oh absolutely, just a decent amount of what can be done right now with some of the internal data mining can do things like track my child's rough age and frequently visited places by season through Google photos which in principle is sort of neat in one way but in the wrong hands it'd be similar...

    Has everyone read: Reasons We Share Personal Data section in Windows 10 Microsoft Privacy Statement

    Google was on his list, I'm quite sure they make more then kickbacks from showing "relevant" ads, which is a very different use then say, Apple's or Microsofts use of similar data (at least so far).

    Has everyone read: Reasons We Share Personal Data section in Windows 10 Microsoft Privacy Statement

    They all don't do "it" (particularly to the same degree), and they all don't monetize the data they do happen to collect via third parties, unless you believe some companies are lying to the SEC and their own investors. This everybody does "it" blanket statement is simply not true.

    Streaming PC >- TV?

    In theory, yes you can do that via DLNA (both the PS3 and your Router support DLNA) which should allow the most basic of streaming from a USB drive plugged into your router directly. That being said, I recall some problems some people had back with that particular router getting DLNA to work...
