  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah I kinda feel them, but at the same time I think is their fault. Just wait till price drop imo. I dono, that what I usually do unless a game is worth buying, even that I played a few hours or so and meh.
  3. I normally don't pick them up until they hit the bargain bins...I've have such a back catalogue of games I've only purchased a handful of games on Day 1 because I thought they were that good and worth the money. Same here!
  4. Vivo was the first, and now hundreds of Chinese brands already have such devices in the market, including the recently released Huawei Mate 20 Pro. That said, so far all of these companies have been using optical based sensors, and Samsung will be the first to use the much more secure ultrasonic based variant. interesting. thanks. did not know that They're all the same under BBK Electronics parent company which also own Oppo and Realme.
  5. Blockchain engineers are now paid the same as experts in AI by Paul Hill Support the technology or not, blockchain knowledge is now being sought after. According to the firm, Hired, blockchain engineers are now making between $150,000 and $175,000 which is above the $135,000 salary of a typical software engineer in San Francisco. The wage which blockchain engineers earn is equivalent to that which developers who specialise in artificial intelligence can expect to achieve. Mehul Patel, CEO of Hired, speaking to CNBC, said: “There's a ton of demand for blockchain. Software engineers are in very short supply, but this is even more acute and that's why salaries are even higher. There's a mindset here of taking a long-term view of planning. If you're going to build blockchain technology, you have to get that talent.” The wages for those specialising in this sector have spiked as companies such as Microsoft begin using the technology, although they could fall if the supply of blockchain engineers increases. According to Hired and CNBC, blockchain engineers should have skills in networking, database design, and cryptography. Typical languages used by these engineers include Java, JavaScript, C++, Go, Solidity, and Python – but others are used too. So while the jury is out on whether investments in blockchain-based products like cryptocurrencies will see a beneficial return, those building products with the blockchain backbone certainly are getting a hefty reward for their efforts.

  6. I'm not sure I understand their frustration. If you want to play the game straight away then you have to be prepared to pay the full price. Seems silly to get annoyed that it drops in price after a month when you've had that entire month to play the game rather than waiting. Like dipsylalapo said, I've got such a backlog of games anyway that I don't mind waiting for it to drop in price or become available as part of the PS+ membership.
  7. uh-huh lol. How else would you describe it?
  8. What's with the 80s style clip art?
  9. Hello Neighbor, Outlast, and more arrive to Xbox Game Pass celebrating Halloween by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe Instead of the usual injection of games that happens on the first day of every month, Xbox Game Pass program has now gained four new games, all as a part of Microsoft's 2Spooky for Halloween event. Although the surprise was ruined a couple of days ago by early unlocks, we now have an official announcement from the company. The four spooky-focused games that are now part of the Xbox Game Pass are as follows: Hello Neighbor Hello Neighbor is a stealth horror game about sneaking into your neighbor's house to figure out what horrible secrets he's hiding in the basement. You play against an advanced AI that learns from your every move. Really enjoying climbing through that backyard window? Expect a bear trap there. Sneaking through the front door? There'll be cameras there soon. Trying to escape? The Neighbor will find a shortcut and catch you. >observer_ The year is 2084. You are Daniel Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. To gather evidence, you must relive their darkest fears, and, finally, face your own. Outlast In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy… until now. Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse experience of a lifetime – and now more beautiful than ever. Caught in the midst of an epic zombie outbreak on the tropical island of Banoi, your only thought is: Survival! Note that Hello Neighbor is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning Windows 10 PC players also have access through the Xbox Game Pass, and all save games, achievements and other stats are shared across the platforms. Moreover, Microsoft has made a handy collection featuring a variety of games fitting the Halloween theme, and all of them are also available to play through the Xbox Game Pass. We will have to wait and see if another batch of games is planned to be introduced to the program on November 1 as usual. If it is, look out for that announcement in the coming days alongside the November Games with Gold reveal.
  10. I disagree. Given that these scams have only been around for a few years, you'd think that the generation that grew up with tech (millennials) would be more savvy to them and on the flipside you'd assume that the generation where tech was new (boomers) would be more susceptible. I don't assume any relationship between technical literacy and the ability to to spot a scam. They are very different things in my mind. The millenials grew up with tech and so they're more technologically literate compared to boomers whereas the boomers are more likely to spot scams, online or not, probably due to having had more opportunity to read about them or hear anecdotes.

    Firefox Quantum 63.0 (offline installer)

    Yes it does, its not Google Chrome! Cool! I know it's not Google Chrome but was just wondering if this off line installer was as stupid as Chromes! Personally, I see absolutely no sense in installing a browser that purposely removes the update feature! I think, google guys assume offline installer for offline peoples, but then what's the use of browser? Intranet.

    Greg Kroah-Hartman, not Torvalds, pushes Linux 4.19

    I thought Linus was taking a break. So, he couldn't have made it?
  14. I use to think that too until I actually talk to a few of them. They are really quite computer dim. Probably due to just using cellphones.
  15. I used to buy games at launch but realized just waiting 30-60 days sometimes cuts the cost in half and gives me a more stable version of the game. That means I can buy almost double the games for the same annual cost for just being a little patient.
  16. StarLink has moved out of its original office to buildings here Google Maps...

  18. Don't have a link yet, but Intel is working on this too.
  19. What if you just want to look down at your arm to see the time, without having to move or wave it around like a crazy person? It is essentially your example of being able to easily look at your phone without doing anything. Just to be clear here... Most people don't move their arm to look at the time on their watch. Ever been in a conversation or a meeting or at a person's house and want to see the time without being rude or just being able to catch the time/information out of the corner of your eye? I agree that it is less egregious not to include it on a watch than a phone, but why argue or defend not having the option when it is something that most people would use? (Showing my age now... I actually remember my aunt having one of the first LED digital watches - it was blank and she had to press the button on the side. It was annoying as ######.) Also, iPhone still doesn't offer this either, so if you are sitting in a meeting with your iPhone and a Apple Watch and want to know the time without being obvious about it - then what? They may just need to improve the ability to detect that movement. "Most people don't move their arm to look at the time on their watch." Do you have a source for that? I've owned a number of watches and have always had to move my wrist/arm to a degree to see what the time is. I don't think I've ever just sat there with my arms in front of me I'm not arguing, just providing an opinion. Rich mentioned that it's a big missing feature on this gen of the watch and I'm saying I don't think it is. Agree that with the situation that you've shown it's a problem. I don't have either so it hadn't even crossed my mind!

Also, iPhone still doesn't offer this either, so if you are sitting in a meeting with your iPhone and a Apple Watch and want to know the time without being obvious about it - then what? You rotate/tilt your arm to look at it like any other watch. If you are worried about not looking like a dbag during a meeting looking at your watch, then uh, don’t do that. That goes for any watch.
  21. This is a welcome competition as I am sick of Adreno and Mali crappy GPUs. They seem like they are stuck at "almost" same performance levels since last 2-3 years. Would love to see a jump like Apple had between A11 and A12.
  22. Oh wow. This is a terrible report. These tech support scams have only been going on for, what, less than a decade? If the scams had been relevant to Boomers when they were young too then we might see a very different result. As it is, we're comparing millenials' behaviour when they're young against Boomers' when they're a lot older.
  23. Some titles are being added to Xbox Game Pass today Dead Island Riptide DE Outlast Hello Neighbour >observer
