Reminds me a lot of the gun ownership issue, but that's a topic for another day.

While this is a pretty nasty bug, I doubt there are too many people who are actually affected by this. Linux Steam users fall between 1-2%, of all linux users I'm sure 99% of them never used this...

With electric cars getting more popular, it makes sense. These cars require a little more precision processing to put use to every watt drawn from the battery, but that being said, that calculation...

I think in the case of using an APU on a 21:9 monitor, you'll want to use that strictly for movies. Once 60FPS movies become more common, an APU will be unbeatable in terms of price vs performance....

An effective cheap way to do a curved ultra-wide setup is to get 2 projectors and a warped screen. A couple of 1080p projectors will get the job done just fine.

For gaming purposes, I think 3...

If I weren't a touch-typist, used multimedia hotkeys, and were more into MMOs, this would be very appealing to me. But since I pretty much never look at my keyboard, I don't really care enough. I'd...

I'm guessing what makes this "Special Edition" is the fact that it should run on Windows 8 without the need of patching or compatibility mode?

This was a pretty cool game for it's time, I had a...

I wouldn't say MIPS is that uncommon. Maybe for PCs outside of China it's rare, but MIPS has had pretty strong linux support for years.

Anyway, I'd say the price point of Creator is pretty...

I don't use xbox, but seeing as most games are forcibly tied to the internet/Live, this is actually a legitimate issue for them. Of course, you could argue that they just simply not play the games,...

I really don't understand the point of this hacking. Many hackers who did something malicious did it for a good reason. Not usually a great reason, just a good one.

I can see the appeal of this compared to the ARM sticks, as long as it came with Windows. I'm not favoring Windows here, but IMO, if I'm running a computer stick on x86 instead of ARM, I'm doing...

COD4 is the reason the franchise has so many titles that I lost count.

Kind of a shame this franchise is what people care about so much. The games aren't poorly made and they are admittedly fun,...

For yet-another-pixelated-indie-game, I'm surprised they're really looking for $375000, but, I guess they know they can mooch off the success of the old game.

That may be true, but AMD getting into the mobile market would help them. Part of AMD's problem is they're a name that nobody is familiar with. If they made a competitive high-volume product, their...

In terms of producers, I forget the guy's name but he does most of Blizzard's cutscenes, and those are almost always phenomenal; often Hollywood quality.

I said it before and I'll say it again - x86 should not be a one-size-fits-all architecture, and intel just keeps insisting that it can be. Meanwhile, AMD realizes this and that is probably one of...
