    aerandir92 reacted to Jet_ski in Facebook suspends Signal from it's advertising platform   
    Summary
    The people behind the messaging app Signal decided to have some fun at the expense of Facebook. They created an ad campaign on Instagram that showed users some of their data that Facebook has collected on them and is selling to anyone.
     
    The ads made headlines quickly and Facebook decided to take action by suspending Signal’s advertising account from their platform. Because user data can be sold, but not shared with the users themselves.
     
    The following are a few examples of the ads shown to Instagram users, each user saw their very own extremely personalized ad.

    My thoughts
    More negative publicity on Facebook’s data collection. As if anything stops the zuggernaut.
     
    I actually saw mine but I didn’t read it. I can skip ads in my sleep now. I wish I had paid attention.

    aerandir92 reacted to Jet_ski in AT&T fights back against California’s net neutrality law   
    But that’s not really the point here. AT&T structured their offering to unfairly incentivize people to subscribe to [HBO Max], a subsidiary of their parent company, instead of other services. But they are trying to frame it as if they were doing people a favor. They weren’t, it was a self serving thing to boost their own business by breaking net neutrality.

    aerandir92 got a reaction from Ash_Kechummm in MTX is the future - Ubisoft to shift focus away from AAA development   
    This could in be a good thing, in regards to the quality of their AAA games. When a company no longer heavily relies on their AAA releases to make them money, they can actually slow down the development of those games, and give them more care. So fewer but better crafted AAA games. I'm all for that, if that is what this means.
    Also, AAA isn't exactly dying, they still make a ton of money, when made right. Just look at all the PS4 exclusives that have made absolute bank, and Sony says they'll continue to focus on that. Ubisoft them selves earns a lot on their AAA games, so it's not like they're going to abandon that marked.

    well, i'll continue to play games I like and not play games I don't like. Not like video games are some limited source, so I don't see what it matters if a company makes a bad game or whatever.

    aerandir92 reacted to Humbug in DerBauer hardware survey highlights issues with max boost clock on Ryzen 3000 "It's worse than I thought"   
    AMD should have just advertised the clockspeeds as 100Mhz lower. People are happy with the performance which is what matters.
     
    What is the point of this? Do they think that they will lose sales because some people don't unerstand that clockspeed is only one factor in performance.

    The following list is based on facts, ranked on power delivery and known problems. The list will include modern motherboards for both Intel and AMD chips From Asus, Asrock, Biostar EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, NZXT and Supermicro (chipsets will be listed). We’ll include the recommended chips we would do with the boards.

    AMD (AM4 Althlon 2xx, Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9)
    All current draw figures are based on Prime95 small FFT with AVX unless otherwise specified, in other words the worst case scenario. Only the top end SKU of CPUs in the same generation and core/thread count configuration is named, others share the same rating. Zen scales down frequency and voltage according to EDC (current limit) and TDC (thermal limit) settings of the motherboard so in theory you won’t cook the VRM of any board at stock, you just lose frequency.

    Thanks for the tips! I hadn't thought about how close the GPU would be to the side panel, I just assumed that it would be fair distance. Maybe not vertical GPU mount then.
    Also yes, I'm expecting that the cooling performance will be degraded, but that should be fine

    Dark base 700 then is clearly the answer
    WARNING!!!
    be quiet! cases are not the best when it comes to performance cooling, so if you're gaming hard and generating a lot of heat and you dont have a good amount of fans, you're going to have a bad time. You also wont get anywhere near the cooling performance of your old HAF X
    I also only advise the use of a vertical GPU mount with a watercooled card, as air cooled cards will be starved for sir against a side panel and overheat under a heavy load.

    Just want to correct the common mistake, Zen 3 and Ryzen 3 is not the same. Zen is the architecture and Ryzen branding of the consumer CPUs based on Zen. The CPUs coming this year is based on the Zen 2 architecture but is the 3rd generation of Ryzen CPUs. Zen 3 is targeted for the 4th gen Ryzen CPUs, to release next year.
    Also, don't fall into the trap of calling it Ryzen 3, it is Ryzen 3rd Gen or Ryzen 3000, as Ryzen 3 is a "tier" of Ryzen CPUs (the same way Intel has Core i3).

    I'm all for trying out higher framerate on movies. I enjoyed the Hobbit movies at 48fps, they are the most comfortable movies to view on a big screen I've ever seen. But some stuff felt a bit off at times, so clearly it is a challenge to make the movies look good at higher framerates.
    With today's 24fps movies I frequently get uncomfortable during movies when there is a lot of movement going on, it becomes a blurry mess that my eyes try to focus on, causing strain and discomfort. It is not a big deal, but the only way to fix this is to go for a higher framerate, or really slow down camera movement and movement by actors/objects

That DDR3 1333mhz memory already used with your ancient FX CPU? if it works it works right? throw that in your case and order your i9 9900K already, don't forget you'll need a cooler so grab a Pentium Stock Cooler for maximum cringe goodness!

    aerandir92 reacted to kirashi in PSA: A reminder on why you should maintain copies of movies   
    Apple isn't the only one who has to succumb to the DRM & copyright moguls of the MPAA and RIAA - Google Play Music & Movies must also comply as well, just as cable TV providers must as well when it comes to On Demand content disappearing overnight. The reality is that there needs to be a way for consumers to maintain their licenses to this content even if you can no longer purchase new licenses on these cloud platforms. Solution is to allow users who already own an appropriate license to re-acquire a copy of the media, but prevent any new purchases from being made.
    Spotify (and Apple Music) subscriptions are different since you don't purchase rights to an individual track or album - you subscribe to a media library that varies based on your geographical location because something about exclusivity rights still makes sense to copyright holders, and totally most definitely doesn't contribute to piracy because you can't listen to or watch something that your friend in another country can. Nope, not at all.
