    A Class Action Lawsuit from 2015 against AMD over the misleading labeling of their FX CPUs as 8-Core Chips is finally accepting claims for a proposed settlement
    In August, AMD Agreed to come to a settlement over the lawsuit regarding misleadingly advertising the FX Chips as 8-Core CPUs when architecturally they could be classified as 4-Core CPUs
    However one of the caveats to the settlement is that only customers who purchased an FX CPU while residing in California, or purchased it on AMD's website, are eligible for a claim.
    If you live in California and purchased an AMD FX CPU, or you purchased an AMD FX CPU on AMD's website, you have until January 3, 2020 to file a claim

    syloui got a reaction from Tieox in "DataSpii" Leak Exposes Browsing History and Embedded URLs Containing Private Data of 4M Users, including Apple, Tesla, Intuit, and Blue Origin   
    SOURCES:
    ArsTechnica's Original Article
    Deep Dive into DataSpii by ArsTechnica
    Extensive Documentation of the Data Leak by Sam Jadali

    Warning: The original article is quite a long read, but I highly recommend reading it if you have the time, it explains the matter better than I could. I will attempt to summarize the key points here.
     
    For the last 7+ months several Browser Extensions for Chrome and Firefox have been collecting and exposing millions of people's browsing data, and sometimes even including embedded URLs that contain files with private information. The leak, coined "DataSpii" by researcher and founder of hosting service Host Duplex, Sam Jadali, was discovered through extensive research into Nacho Analytics, a paid service selling this data in "near real-time", and advertises itself as "God Mode for the Internet".
    The leak resulted in the publishing of sensitive, private, and personally identifiable data from the effected users:
    And has also affected over 50 businesses leaking internal information:
     
    Sam Jadali found numerous extensions that resulted in eventual publications of tested URLs on Nacho Analytics:
     
    If you've previously used any of these extensions and want to know more about the leak, how it happened, and how it effects you, I highly recommend reading the full ArsTechnica article. And if you want to go deeper into the data leak, please check out Sam Jadali's work, he's done an amazing job documenting his research into the matter.
    I noticed while I was digging around the forums in google that several users have recommended extensions like Hover Zoom in the past, so if you know anyone who might be effected by this please spread the word!

    even if you do purchase one of these, considering ebay's priority buyer protection system, and lack of seller protection, you should be fine in getting your money back

    I'm not surprised, considering Ryzen is absolute garbage.
     
    And 'Threadripper'? Who the fuck needs that many cores? The 22 core Xeons have enough power on their own, so why even bother?
     
    Seriously, Threadripper is just 4 desktop dies glued together,

    syloui got a reaction from TetraSky in Microsoft begins to integrate Android and iOS into Windows 10, starting with Android   
    RIP Windows Phone, you were great, lag and crash free, and had the best keyboard. Only thing that made people not want you was the lack of app support. By the way, whatever happened to that class action lawsuit against google regarding them purposefully choking out third party app ecosystems by not giving them google play services support (which a large percentage of apps use on both android and ios)?
     
    I used my WP until the few apps we did have left stopped getting updated and APIs changed so the old versions didn't work much anymore. I still use it as my alarm clock, and it still has the best touchscreen keyboard.

    Nice move since a lot of iPhone users that I know are PC users. So this is Microsoft's subtle way of saying "fuck Windows Phone, let's focus on the two platforms that will pay us money more".
