Our second installment covering our AMD Radeon R9 Nano in a Small Form Factor chassis is finally done. We will upgrade the case to a Corsair Obsidian Series 250D Mini ITX PC Case and compare the R9 Nano to price competitive video cards that can be installed. We game at 1440p and 4K for the ultimate small form factor experience.
Li-Fi, a super-fast alternative to Wi-Fi, is finally moving from research labs to the real world after an Estonian startup implemented the technology within a commercial context. Velmenni, a recent finalist at the Slush 100 startup competition in Helsinki, revealed that it has begun trialling the technology within offices and industrial environments in Tallinn.
Men are to blame for this. I don't know how or why, but men are to blame.
The decline was due to layoffs from the restructuring of the phone businesses Microsoft acquired from Nokia last year, Gwen Houston, Microsoft's general manager of global diversity and inclusion, wrote in the report. As part of the restructuring, the company eliminated many manufacturing jobs at factories outside the US. Those jobs were held by a high percentage of women, she said.
In 2008, DHL abandoned its domestic shipping operations in the United States, putting thousands of employees out of work and leaving behind a very nice air cargo facility at a decommissioned air base in Ohio. A company started using the base recently, shipping unspecified "consumer goods," but no one will identify who it is. One likely suspect is Amazon.
The alternative OS gurus over at Phoronix put AMD's Radeon Software Crimson Edition to the test and came away disappointed.
While leaked slides indicate AMD was planning better gaming on Linux for Crimson, in the end they really didn't deliver. Even for their mentioned games, when testing various Linux OpenGL games on three different systems the performance was largely unchanged.
You guys might want to read up on the three judges that hold the fate of the internet in their hands. It's kind of scary when you think about it.
Three judges from the D.C. Circuit have been named to hear the oral argument on Dec. 4. Much like the Supreme Court, the very makeup of this panel could subtly shape the course of events. What do we know about the judges? Are they familiar with the issues? How might they vote? Below, get briefly acquainted with each one ahead of the big day.
Now might be a good time to check to see if your Amazon account password has been reset. Mine wasn't but, just to be cautious, I reset mine anyway.
In the email, Amazon said it "recently discovered that your [Amazon] password may have been improperly stored on your device or transmitted to Amazon in a way that could potentially expose it to a third party." It adds: "We have corrected the issue to prevent this exposure." The email said it has "no reason" to believe passwords were improperly disclosed to a third party but issued a temporary password out of an "abundance of caution."
Wearable producers such as Apple, Fitbit, and Pebble will ship more than 76 million of the devices by the end of the year, according to market research firm IDC. Some doctors and researchers, however, remain unimpressed, They question the value of the particular metrics tracked, as well as the validity of the deluge of data these gadgets produce.
With the Space X team getting a bit of bad the press lately over failed landing attempts, it has to chap Elon Musk's ass that Bezos beat him to the punch like this.
Launching from Texas on Monday, Bezos' New Shepard crew capsule and propulsion module blasted into space with no passengers on board. After reaching its planned test altitude of 329,839 feet, the vessel returned to Earth, landing upright just four and a half feet from its launch pad, according to Blue Origin.
SilverStone sent over their latest iteration of the mini-ITX "Z" chassis. Based off of the Raven RVZ02, today we have a chance to look at the Milo version: the ML08B-H. Following the same internal layout the Milo ML08 squeezes the same component clearances into an even slimmer chassis with some new tricks. New tool-less drive trays, a more accessible interior and two completely thermally isolated compartments identify this HTPC-oriented "Z2" case.
As far as public perception goes, I think creating a safety advisory board is a smart move for Uber. Whether or not it will make an actual difference remains to be seen.
The six-member board is made up of outsiders such as former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis; former deputy executive director of the Texas Department of Transportation John Barton; and National Network to End Domestic Violence executive vice president Cindy Southworth. They will advise Uber’s internal safety and security teams.
While I enjoy using the device, and it's an impressive piece of technology, I have come to the conclusion that like all other iPads that have come before it, the unit is totally inappropriate and undesirable for enterprise use.
It looks as though Cox might have suffered a bit of a setback in its case against Rightscorp. This is what Cox had to say to the judge about the ruling:
"Rightscorp and Plaintiffs tried to abuse Cox’s system," Cox told the judge. "Rightscorp sells shady services to copyright holders. It shakes down ISP customers for money without regard to actual liability, and it tries to enlist ISPs in its scheme. Cox explained it would not accept Rightscorp’s wrongful notices and asked Rightscorp to fix its notices. Rightscorp refused, instead dumping thousands of notices per day on Cox. As a result, Cox blocked Rightscorp’s notices. This suit is Rightscorp’s retribution, with Plaintiffs’ complicity, for Cox’s refusal to participate in Rightscorp’s scheme."

Bethesda's VP of marketing, responding to questions on Twitter, says that console commands are not supported on the PC version of the game and that the company has already seen save files that have been corrupted up by use of console commands.
What? You didn't order a security hole with your new laptop? That's okay, Dell gave you one anyway.
A pre-installed program on some newly purchased Dell laptops that can only be removed manually by consumers makes them vulnerable to cyber intrusions that may allow hackers to read encrypted messages and redirect browser traffic to spoofs of real websites such as Google or those belonging to a bank, among other attacks.
What was the first thing that popped into your head when you read that headline? CEO? That's what I thought too.
The Sunnyvale, California-based Web giant lists roughly 60 products and services in the US, but the portfolio is in such disarray that Yahoo itself can't keep track of it. Clicking on some services, like Contacts, yields a broken link. And there are links to other services, like Profiles and Directory, that have already been shut down.
At first I was like "who uses LifeLock for anything?" Then I read this.
Imagine you found out that your former spouse had opened a fake LifeLock credit monitoring account in your name, and then used it to follow your every financial move for two years? Then imagine that no one at LifeLock will take your query seriously, even after the police get involved.
Hey, did you guys know that the professional guessers out there seem to believe the adoption rate of Windows Free will be faster than all those other version of Windows you had to pay for. ASTOUNDING!
Half of all organisations will have commenced their Windows 10 rollout by January 2017, putting it on track to be the most widely installed version of Windows ever, according to Gartner. "For businesses, we expect that implementation will be significantly more rapid than that seen with Windows 7 six years ago."
Nowadays it almost feels that wherever I look I see manufacturers doing their best to cover even the last person in the market with their products. Take AIO liquid CPU coolers for example. As I type these lines in the market there are numerous such models from a large number of manufacturers not only with different length (120/140/240/280/360mm) and thickness (25/27/30/32/38/43/45/49mm) radiators but also with different type of tubes (rubber/FEP) and various performance pumps (2400/2500/2600/2800/2900/3600/3800RPM).
