On the upshot, he can start the digital download now and it may actually be finished by the time he gets out of prison.

Interesting that they pretty much went with standard HD, albeit at closer to 21:9. Maybe to keep up frame rates? I think the Galaxy S30 has ultra-wide QHD and 120Hz for comparison. So lower refresh rate, but higher resolution. I think I’d lean towards Samsung’s compromise, but I’m not much of a phone gamer. Maybe I’m Read more

How did CHUD become such a cultural icon? Everyone seems to know about it. Hell, both Simpsons and Family Guy have referenced it more than once. Read more

Holy shit...this hit home so hard. I’m thinking, “what am I even looking at”, then slowly sank into the realization that I’m no longer “with it” enough to know. Read more

I would like to see all those figures audited for how much of the user base is on the “free” tier.

I find “Continue where you left off” to be buggy. Makes the program hang sometimes after I close out of all instances, so when you re-launch Chrome, your last state shows up. I keep Chrome light weight in terms of extensions, so it’s probably this feature causing issues.

If the 300dpi on a 7.8 screen = 1,404 x 1,872, then at 100dpi, that’s 624 x 468, just for some perspective on what this actually means. That’s sub VGA. Not great when modern comics are 300-600 DPI, but might not matter as much for anything prior to the 90's, where comic print was relatively crude and dithering dots Read more

Towing and direct payload can not be compared apples to apples. That’s why the two figures are so drastically different. Weight distribution over axles has a lot to do with how effective your brakes (and everything else) will be. When towing, you’re only getting about 10-15% tongue weight from whatever you’re towing Read more

I’m less surprised about volume and more surprised about the weight. 27 people at, say, 150lb each is 4,050 lbs, or about 2,400 lbs or so over max payload for a late model Expedition. And that’s being very modest with per pax weight. I’m amazed it could even run with the suspension all bottomed out. Brakes wouldn’t be Read more

I wondered that myself. Maybe globally? If it does well in it’s home country, then it stands to reason it would do OK in Japan and China as well, so there could be some meaningful numbers globally.

Not necessarily a boss fight, but Tyrant showing up unexpectedly in Resident Evil would really get my adrenaline up. I think that’s the first time I’ve experienced actual “holy shit...get to the door” fear in a video game. Then a lingering dread that it could happen again at any moment.

But why? Neat party trick, but $400k neat? I’d probably just leave it unfolded 99% of the time, at which point a regular TV makes more sense. If the need to display your wealth is that great, just put a basket with $400k worth of cash on your TV stand next to your regular TV.

I don’t either. It was from an first responder AMA, but who knows if that was real. I did say “anecdotal”. However, it is still plausible in my mind and seemingly backed by at least the one study above. Read more

I doubt it will be cancelled. Google is an information broker. Their money is made on adds. They sell more and/or higher tier adds when they can prove effectiveness. So knowing what and when you shop is huge, and that’s not even getting into any money they may or may not make from the contactless format directly. Do Read more

I saw some anecdotal evidence on Reddit from a supposed first responder who said that cats are way more likely to eat your dead body than dogs, if you die with them locked in the house and no one notices you for a long time.

I updated mine literally in a line at a grocery store when I realized I forgot my wallet at home. Went to use the app and it started off asking me to log in and went through a new app walkthrough. I was kind of worried because I had all my stuff on the belt already, but after the walkthrough, all my cards where there Read more

Google Pay (formerly Android Pay) has been around since 2011, pre-dating Apple Pay. I’m not trying to say this for some type of platforms arms race or fanboyism. Just a comparison to what I would acknowledge as the more prevalent example. So I don’t think they’re losing interest this late in the game. Plus, knowing Read more

My perception? Did you not read the above article that suggested 60-90 day password changes? I’m just being realistic in saying no one will change every distinct password, and more likely most people have the same password for every website.

I agree with you, but there are some instances where it could be beneficial. That’s when someone uses the same password for everything, and the lowest hanging fruit (one off online retail from a small storefront) will get compromised, thus giving up the farm on your entire online presence. There, periodic password Read more

Agreed. Most “smart” TV interfaces are a mess. Some of that is the OS. Some of that might be skimping out on processing power. Some of it is poorly ported 3rd party apps. Read more
