Why did Microsoft skip Windows 9?
Microsoft can't count.
Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox 1
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.
I'm a little surprised they aren't calling it Windows One.
Acer Launches First 4K Panel With NVIDIA G-Sync Technology On Board
It will probably be a year before any monitors come out with the VESA standard Adaptive Sync. You can get GSYNC monitors now.
I used the GSYNC upgrade kit on my VG248QE in January and since experiencing GSYNC I could never go back. Everything is much smoother at all frame rates without stuttering or tearing or any of the added input latency standard VSYNC adds.
I can't wait for non-nvidia support, but it is a long ways out.

Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?
Our school computer lab used iMacs without any logins, OS6 or something. I made a million copies of the trashbin and spread them all over the desktop then hid the real one on one of the computers. Someone couldn't figure out how to eject their disk and had to have the teacher come over and help. He thought it was funny too.

eSports Starting To Go Mainstream
Why would they show eSports on ESPN when they can reach a wider audience and offer a much better experience with streaming? Traditional TV is going the way of the Dodo, everything is moving to streaming. It is like saying Soccer won't be mainstream until it is on the radio.
eSports Starting To Go Mainstream
Cool story grandpa. You played some shitty game with shitty physics so all games must have bad physics. You used IM instead of voice and video chat so the only form of online communication must be through text. You played some shitty game at a low level so hand eye coordination and reflexes don't matter in any game. You didn't make any friends playing online that you keep in contact with and meet in real life so no one must be able to.
Your failure isn't stopping it from becoming the norm.

Why China Is Worried About Japan's Plutonium Stocks
They were quite dedicated
In 1944, Lt. Hiroo Onoda was sent by the Japanese army to the remote Philippine island of Lubang. His mission was to conduct guerrilla warfare during World War II. Unfortunately, he was never officially told the war had ended; so for 29 years, Onoda continued to live in the jungle, ready for when his country would again need his services and information. Eating coconuts and bananas and deftly evading searching parties he believed were enemy scouts, Onoda hid in the jungle until he finally emerged from the dark recesses of the island on March 19, 1972.
