This guy is an idiot and got what he had coming to him. He should be thankful it wasn't worse. Not sure why he thought Gabe had anything to do with his less-than-impressive game. On the other...

Shhh!!! What are you doing!? We need people to get rid of IE6, not find reasons why it's still ok to use it!

I use dropbox, though rarely. I use it explicitly to share files, and to store my archives. I use OneDrive to backup my Documents folder simply because it's readily accessible in Windows 8, but...

I think the opposite is exactly why AMD has been failing. Read helped "duct tape" AMD to working condition but he was focusing too much on the company being a business. He came from Lenovo, and a...

I have never used a Belkin router that I liked. I don't encounter them often but when I do, there's something wrong with them. Twice I've encountered Belkin routers where the wifi "died" within a...

I've never played Myst but I've heard good things about it, and I've heard that it was more of an interactive graphical story than a game. I think a TV series would be cool, and if they do a good...

On a laptop, I find the context menu key to be useful. On desktops, I pretty much never press it ever. In many programs you can substitute it with F10. That key, along with scroll lock, and...

Actually yeah, graphics and CAD definitely makes a lot of sense. 4K WOULD be good for gaming if GPUs could handle it, and they're not good for videos unless you have something recorded in that...

But that completely defeats the purpose. 4k screens are pretty much ONLY good for gaming or the rare 4K videos, but nothing else. Running a 4K screen at 1080p just for gaming is like a vegan who...

Lol I never said it made sense or should be that way, I'm just stating that PC has an edge with RTSs and the average PC user, according to Steam, has a crappy GPU.

Actually I think the real issue here is HDMI, DVI, and DP - the bandwidth is too high for many of these connectors, and GPUs have to be designed to be compatible with them. I think the average GPU...
