    iPhone XS Not Charging

    This is generally kind of smart. Not just with phones, but with cars or other tech items too.

    Microsoft will sunset Skype 7 in September

    Skype got rid of me years ago due to malicious ads. FB Messenger is the best cross-platform system right now imo
  4. There literally is a competitive mode for TF2 where you can only use the pan. Not joking.
  5. The level of detail provided by me and my sources obviously overburdens you. I don't see the point of the meaningless accusations you throw around here, without any sources to absolutely noone's surprise.
  6. This is utter nonsense. Go read what I wrote before and all your questions will be answered.
  7. Ask Volkswagen (and their brands, Audi and Porsche). They have been cheating, the others have not.
  8. You say "on over 11,000" cars like that is a lot. It is not. BMW alone makes over 2,000,000 cars every year. Stop scandalising please. If you want more details: The engine in question (N57) has multiple variants, which require different firmwares. The N57D30S1 variant, used on 7 series and 5 series cars and not in production any more, does not feature an AdBlue system, which caused it to emit higher than normal amounts of NOx, since the applied firmware assumed that there was an AdBlue system present. And could you elaborate on what you mean with "should have been found on the next service"? The time that this problem has existed for is way shorter than the normal time between services.
  9. This is nonsense. What actually happened: In the wake of the VW scandal, BMW updated some of its car's firmware to even more reduce emissions, which were never over the limit to begin with (trust me, since the VW thing, numerous instances have closely inspected BMW engines and never found ANYTHING). Unfortunately, some workshop employees installed the wrong firmware on 11 700 vehicles (so, not a lot), leading them to behave in a way that could result in increased emissions. This was an accident! Very important: This was found by BMW themselves and then immediately communicated to the authorities. Of course, this raid is bad press now, and with the OP for some reason hating on diesel engines, a topic needed to be created in the LTT forum Source (in German, deal with it): http://www.bimmertoday.de/2018/03/20/razzia-bei-bmw-diesel-software-im-fokus-der-staatsanwaltschaft/

    Apple sells fewer iPhones, but profits rise.

    How do you know they bought one the year before? ... I have never in my life bought a new phone yet. Always used. And guess who I bought the used phones from. Right, people who had bought a new one. If there hadn't been a used one, I would have had to buy a new one. See the balance?
  11. U.S. ITC rejects Boeing injury claims on Bombardier ... Told you https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-itc-ruling/u-s-itc-rejects-boeing-injury-claims-on-bombardier-idUKKBN1FF2MF
  12. Because so many options! I think building a PC, even though current RAM and GPU prices make it expensive, was never as easy and as customizeable as today. The alternative would likely be Nvidia graphics on the Intel chip, so no, this is probably the best way to go for AMD.
  13. Intel published information about the chip on its indian website. AnandTech also compared this against current Intel chips: Good times ahead, if you ask me. Better than the recent years, at least when it comes to the CPU side of things. Source Edit: Thanks for all your replies! There are some obvious questions that I didn't have the time to cover yesterday so here is some more info. I think that this is not going to be a problem for AMD's APU sales. The reason for that is that Intel was going to make these kind of processors anyway, and if AMD had not worked with them, they would have used an Nvidia GPU instead. I actually assume that there were negotiations with both GPU makers with AMD winning, probably because of their pricing, but that is speculation on my part. If someone has more info, feel free to correct this. A little more about the graphics chip: There is a little confusion about how the thing will actually look like, since it is listed together with socketable desktop processors, not mobile chips, while the renders show a product that looks like it would be soldered to the motherboard. Also I'm not sure how cooling is going to work with this arrangement of heatspreader surfaces.
