    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from dalekphalm in Dolby Labs: Old Photoshop? That's a lawsuitin - Adobe warns of potential lawsuits for users who don't update.   
    You missed the cloud part.
     
    To fix your example: You rented the dell. The company never took it back, but drops you a letter that the windows license expired and offers you a shiny new dell, wich you already paid rent for.
     
    All you have to do is say yes and get a NEW dell with an active license.
    But you refuse, even tho you already paid the money for it,...
     
    Kinda dumb, isn't it?

    Or just trying to convince devs and Mac users to transition to Windows, since Windows will now be able to natively support Unix.

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from cj09beira in AMD Releases NEW Ryzen Embedded CPUs today. "3X performance per watt..."   
    Just wanted to say:
    The level of Click Bait is getting annoying enough that I stopped reading some articles here and started to look for alternatives to get my tech news.
     
    Not claiming that I am important enough for mods to start doing something about it, but I would certainly hope that this gets addressed at some point. 
    Would be lovely if this happens before i actually delete my bookmark for the news forum. This topic certainly brought me closer.

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from dalekphalm in [Followup] SEC asks federal judge to hold Elon Musk in contempt   
    Only in america can it be illegal to talk about your own company. Glad you are at least allowed to shoot people left right and center, unless there is boobs involved, then you have to shut your eyes!
     
    America really feels more and more strange, the longer I follow US news the less I believe there is hope left.

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from ATFink in [Followup] SEC asks federal judge to hold Elon Musk in contempt   
    The US has a strong emphasis on "making a case" when it comes to laws.
    Laws by definition are very open and broad in the US. So there is plenty of room for interpretation, "to be able to make a case".
     
    Germany for example does not have that at all. There is law. Period. We barely have any room to bend the law at all. You look into the law books, find the section that fits your case and the ruling is right there. No case to be made.
     
    Why do I mention this?
    Because Elon Musk could tweet about having a MAJOR cold and feels like dying.
    People would start "making a case" that this is tempering with the stock market, as people could fear he would really be dying and Tesla stock would drop like a rock without him.
     
    It is crazy easy "to make a case" under US law. Whatever he tweets, there is almost always a way to make a case on why it could affect someone, just to be able to sue for another few millions.
     
    "I had a car accident, feeling ok, thanks for the wishes!" - OMG. Elon Musk crashed, likely in a tesla. He is not allowed to tweet THAT!
    "We are pushing out a new Software Update somewhere next month. It will update the security of your auto pilot 2 fold!" - OMG, he is claiming stuff to happen. He is not allowed to tweet THAT!
     
    Think I am exaggerating? 
    Get yourself a beer and read the comments under his tweets once in a while. Basically the moment he sends a tweet, there is the crowd of people trying to "make a case".
    I was really sad to hear, that he would not pull Tesla from the stock market. So many stuff and regulations that push Tesla back. I am sure he could be making even more amazing stuff, if it was not for this silly Stock Market and all the silly people trying to get rich by suing other people for words.

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from Zannah in Epic Games could popularise Exclusivity deals in the PC ecosystem   
    I actually enjoy having all my games on Steam and not having to deal with all the new and upcoming Launchers that are way inferior anyways.
    And the most hated "feature" of Consoles for me is exclusive games that only run on one of them.
     
    Granted I am working now, so I don't mind just buying all the consoles plus a good PC, but i still dislike the practice and remember how hard it sucked to own a PS2, when the game I wanted only showed up on XBOX. And vise versa, when I bought an XBOX the next generation.
     
    Yeah, for PC this would not suck as bad, due to just being able to install the other launcher, ... but honestly: I really gave GOG a chance. And I hate the launcher tbh.
    There are about 150 games in my GOG library and i honestly just forget about them, due to only opening Steam when I want to play a game. I went as far as rebuying games, just so I could run them via Steam. Workshop being one of the main reasons, lack of proper reviews and forums being the close second. 
    Reinventing the wheel (and failing at it!) is something the gaming industry keeps getting away with. And i hate it.

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from mr moose in Titan V ray tracing (almost) like a RTX 2080 TI   
    People keep demanding new stuff. 
    And people expect wonders every 1-2 years.
     
    Also people: Not willing to pay more for all the stuff, expecting prices to stay the same.
     
    That would work, if we would wait 5-8 years between generations, like consoles! Do we want console like performance for 8 years? No? Well, guess we will have to pay more then.
  11. Agree
    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from ne0tic in Titan V ray tracing (almost) like a RTX 2080 TI   
    The interesting part is not that it runs on a Titan V. 
    Since DXR is a clean DX12 thing, no one that knows how this works was expecting ANY GPU not to "run" it.
     
    The point is that a Titan V runs it well. Very well actually.
    Granted: The same User confirmed less impressive results on other maps, but we are still talking about playable framerates, which where sold as not being possible without RT cores. And honestly, since RT has been done for a good while now, we never saw any "playable" implementation up to now. I mean, it is not like people doing this for work did not try to make it go faster or something. 
     
    It seems like Tensor Cores are indeed very capable of RT work. The real question is: How capable are they really? Could RTX go without RT by having more Tensor?
    More Tensor would make it vastly superior in other tasks as well,...

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from SlimyPython in Michael Pachter confirms he hasn't got a clue what he's talking about, claims PS5 will be capable of 4K @ 240FPS   
    I swear, the console fanatics believe in magic. 
    Just a few days ago another of those blind fanatics wanted to get into an argument with me about his XBOX being a true 4k piece for 300 bucks. He also claimed my shit PC would never reach that quality, even if i invested 3k into it.
     
    Seriously, i have no idea how to properly talk to the console kids these days. They really buy the marketing and don't seem to notice it when playing. Or they lie to themselves?

    Tech Enthusiast got a reaction from NunoLava1998 in You thought GTX 1060 was confusing? You've seen nothing. Enter RTX 2060 and 6 variants of the same card   
    So, lets assume they would have done the opposite and only used one version.
     
    RTX 2060 GDDR5X 3GB The Internet: "OMG, only 3gb is not enough in 2019! Also not even GDDR6!"
    RTX 2060 GDDR5X 4GB The Internet: "OMG, not even GDDR6!"
    RTX 2060 GDDR5X 6GB The Internet: "OMG, not even GDDR6 and it won't be able to actually push 6gb anyways. Could have been cheaper!"
    RTX 2060 GDDR6 3GB The Internet: "OMG, only 3gb is not enough in 2019! Also, GDDR6 is hella expensive, should have used GDDR5x!"
    RTX 2060 GDDR6 4GB The Internet: "OMG, GDDR6 is hella expensive! Should have used GDDR5x!"
    RTX 2060 GDDR6 6GB The Internet: "OMG, GDDR6 is hella expensive! Also it won't be fast enough to push those 6gb anyways. Could have been so much cheaper!"
     
    Also the Internet: "OMG, enough choices so all the common complaints don't fit. IT IS CONFUSING!"
     
    On a more serious note:
    Vacuum cleaners are confusing. They have plenty of versions, but you can't look up a benchmark to know which is faster. This holds true for almost everything that is not a benchmarkable tech item. For GPUs you actually can do that. It takes all of 2 minutes, if you read some text as well. Less if you just look at the bars.
    I seriously don't get how Nvidia could win here, due to the internet bashing on everything they could have done. Going with all possibilities for an easily comparable item is not exactly the worst idea, no?

    Why is WW1 and WW2 dragged into this now?
    Both did not have anything in common with the topic in question. Not at all.
    Also: a "few" years between now and then, so maybe, just maybe.... Hitler (who was not even german to begin with) is not in charge anymore?
     
    If we would be going by that strange logic all US reputation would be void and gone for the next hundred years due to Mr. Orange Guy.

    To be quite frank here:
    When was the last time the US offered proof for anything they claim? At least Germany tries not not fuck over companies for shady reasons, without any evidence whatsoever.
    Honestly the US just dislikes Huawai, because they are not native and surpassed Apple now. It is a strictly economic thing for the US and as per usual they hide that behind defamation without anything to back it up.

    I was at the microsoft event in which the announced the visual studio 2019 preview and a lot on where they talked about this.  They use open source github repositories for some features including a new (and incredible) feature called Intellicode for AI assisted intellisense.  Private is not open source.

    They offered the capabilities to add your own private codebase so it can learn your own habits (such as business) and that learning only applies to you. It does not share that with others.

    Wow.. how did you twist that one up?
    All it says is that the coming up Visual Studio has a feature that allows you to to simply put a URL of a git project and import it for you to get started more quickly, and configure Visual Studio coding style with the one detected.
     
    This has NOTHING to do with buying GitHub... It just executes Git clone command on the back to fetch the project for you, and guess the coding style it puts to configure your Visual Studio to follow. It is just a quick starting feature.
