  1. Appreciate you folks covering the Verge story I posted this week. Interesting read for sure. And if it makes you feel better @RILEYISMYNAME this story makes me feel old too. Keep up the great work you guys!
  2. This was the surprising thing for me when reading this article. Whilst I was using a PC well before we had our first IT classes in primary school, those classes still taught me a lot of the fundamental computing principles at a young age and skills that would serve me well into the future. Is it too outlandish for modern classes to teach junior students some of the basics of how to use a computer? I think the pros outweigh the cons here.
  3. Summary In this recent article from The Verge, (yes, I know the infamous "Verge"), Monica Chin describes a changing climate for professors and teachers as many technological concepts deemed common knowledge for previous generations of students is found to no longer be the case She interviews several professors and lecturers who detail their experience of asking students to retrieve files from certain folders from their PC with a response of blank stares and puzzled expressions from their pupils. Quotes It seems this is not exclusive to psychology and physi
  4. Regardless of what people think of NFTs, surely Banksy is extremely liable for this? Even more so after being warned about his website’s vulnerabilities.
  5. I think you summarise Google's rational on it very well. It's not in their best interest to allow this service to keep going, it's not like adverts play during the queue either, these bots circumvented Google's ads. This assumes all your friends use Spotify too, not to mention they'd actually all join in on Spotify listening session. From my experience it's just easier to get wider adoption if everything is in one service without having to use other applications or program. iMessage for example, is so popular because it's baked right into iOS there's next to no setup. That's why
  6. Anyone play Uncharted 3 free to play multiplayer on PS3? Naughty Dog did a similar thing. I remember seeing dozens of Last of Us adverts, (this was shortly before it's release) and adverts for other Sony titles/products if I'm not mistaken. I can somewhat see the use case for F2P titles, if this eliminates pay to win and other shady microtransactions then that's a plus, but if we're being honest...we know it won't.
  7. Yeah I find this really interesting too. For reference, I'm sitting on barely used Steam Controller and I'm tossing up whether to sell it now or wait 2 or 3 years and see what the value is then? What do you guys think? Because I know the fandom for all things Steam and Valve does run pretty deep for a lot of PC enthusiasts and their first delve into hardware surely has some value. But what value is the question
  8. It makes sense, we don't know the long term ramifications of COVID and whether it could change operation of some businesses permanently, i.e. adopting remote work full time. The way Windows 10 works as a live service means they constantly need to be optimising it so these kind of improvements are welcome imo.
  9. I was surprised to see them release the iPhone SE 2020 amidst this pandemic. They've clearly had the iPhone SE 2020 in the works for some time and had little to no choice to release it now. And I agree with @Bombastic only a month is impressive, I wonder though, whether it is delayed further. This pandemic can be unpredictable and volatile.
  10. Yeah I think this is the point. I know it's cliche, but the technology just isn't there yet. It's an inferior product compared to owning the actual hardware and there's no cost benefit at the moment. If the service became cheaper to use than I could see it appealing to some people. I don't like this move from Apple either. Like @BuckGup pointed out, I think it'll be temporary. Either legislation will force them to change their guidelines or they'll come round to it like in-home streaming. Sometimes they'll do this when they're waiting for their own implementation of a similar servi
  11. Clearly they should have just delayed it. Especially considering it's a remaster Blizzard and it's fan should want to do the original justice.
  12. Oh how the mighty have fallen, Blizzard just isn't the same company it once was.
  13. This CCPA is definitely a step in the right direction. It makes me wonder though, if the public has a direct say in whether or not their data is sold won't this mean massive financial loss for companies relying on harvesting people's data? It doesn't surprise me that Google is not implmenting this nation-wide, it's not in their best interests. My assumption though, is that opt-out will be in a menu of a website or application where your average user does not go to and only the educated tech users will take full advantage of the act.
