NVIDIA Launches New Midrange Maxwell-Based GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Card

oic0 Re:Weaksauce (114 comments)

I just swapped from a AMD to a GTX 970 (I needed HDMI 2.0 for 4k). I would not say the Nvidia drivers are better. Not by a long shot. Alt tabbing out often leaves my screen tinted a funny color until I change resolutions and back. A few of the driver options either don't work or mess things up (attempting to change color modes scrambled my screen even on compatible settings). Oh and my cursor is all sorts of messed up. Yes I uninstalled the AMD drivers and ran a cleaner. There are some features I really like, like the target frame rate option so my card doesn't work too hard playing old games, but the drivers are darn buggy and this hard power limit on overclocking sucks. 106% is the max. Since when has an overclocker ever cared about power consumption.

NVIDIA Launches New Midrange Maxwell-Based GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Card

You can get a used 280X for cheaper that will wipe the floor with it. The dual fan models are very quiet. They use a bit of power, but not at idle... so unless you game 24/7 and live in a super pricy electric area OR have a garbage PSU, its the far better deal. The plain ol 280 is also better.

Elon Musk Plans To Build Hyperloop Test Track

oic0 Re:He didn't say that (165 comments)

Louisiana for example you would likely run across some ditch classified as wet lands. California you would probably cut down a tree with an endangered mosquito colony... etc... I could see Nevada or New Mexico though.

Windows 10 Gets a Package Manager For the Command Line

oic0 Re:Oh boy, another infection vector (230 comments)

Um... you can already install silently on pretty much all versions. MSI is really good at it and installshield can do it with an answer file. I do it remotely from command line all the time at work.

Fuel Efficiency Numbers Overstate MPG More For Cars With Small Engines

oic0 Re:Well DUH! (403 comments)

I love motorcycles because you can drive hard and still come within a couple mpg of what you would get babying it and highway / city doesn't matter much. My ZX6R gets 42 babying it highway, 40 flogging it city. My VTX1800 gets 32 babying it, 30 not My WR250X was an exception and got worse on the highway due to lack of power and poor aerodynamics but still managed 58 highway, 65 city.

How do you connect to it over light years of distance? ping time measured in years would suck.

Sapphire Glass Didn't Pass iPhone Drop Test According to Reports

oic0 Re:Reminds me of cars until the 1950s (207 comments)

Or just have easily replaceable super hard glass over a more tough glass. Glass offers better optical transmission and a better surface. I've been using a tempered glass screen protectors for the last year and mucn prefer it. In reality phones are alreadtly built this way. The front face plate is very cheap. Its just hard to remove since its glued on.

CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"

oic0 Re:Correction (462 comments)

Yep. There is no good outcome when you let them search your car. Best case scenario they waste your time and violate your space. Worst case scenario they find some way to screw you while they are in there.

AT&T Says 10Mbps Is Too Fast For "Broadband," 4Mbps Is Enough

oic0 No longer able to advertise (533 comments)

Where this would hit then is in advertising and semantics. Their competitors would be able to advertise "we are the only broadband provider in your area! Call now". That would hurt them.

Some Core I7 5960X + X99 Motherboards Mysteriously Burning Up

oic0 Same thing happened to me with AM2 (102 comments)

I bought one of the first AM boards and they said it was rated for high watts. I made the power regulator shoot flames 10 minutes after I had it together. They lowered the rated power handling and refunded me but lame Newegg made me pay return shipping...

Fish Raised On Land Give Clues To How Early Animals Left the Seas

I doubt they're viewing any on going development, likely the thing already had genes present to allow it to develop differently if given a season with less water available.

Robotic Suit Gives Shipyard Workers Super Strength

oic0 Re: Only geeks... (125 comments)

Average weight of a south Korean male is 70kg, so almost 43% of their body weight. I agree though, wimpy. I can't imagine bothering to put it on. Even if it's additive to your current strength, it would be a waste of time. If you are constantly moving stuff that heavy you could do it faster with a forklift. If you are constantly moving lighter stuff you can do it faster without the suit.

Amazon's eBook Math

oic0 They are neglecting over time proffit (306 comments)

Its likely best to start a book at 15 and slowly drop it down, just like like every other entertainment medium.... and like they already do by releasing hard backs first. The price thing is true though. I read a lot, I probably buy 2 or 3 books a week and when I am digging for books to buy I give a lot more consideration to cheap books. More expensive books are given much lower priority when I am considering what to buy. I wouldnt even consider a $15 book and a $10 is barely within consideration. $3 is more like it and $6 being a stretch.
