FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

ArchieBunker Media blackout (512 comments)

There is no media blackout because the media does not care. How could you even condense this whole shit show down into a one minute news story? Outside of the gaming community nobody really cares.

Ask Slashdot: What Can I Really Do With a Smart Watch?

ArchieBunker Your job (217 comments)

Are any of your reasons for needing your phone related to your job? Can you not go through a workday without playing with your phone? If you need outside communications from the clean room then your employer should provide them.

Eizo Debuts Monitor With 1:1 Aspect Ratio
