  Windows Store Is A Haven For Media Piracy Apps

This is how low the Windows Store has fallen. Gaben must be feeling really foolish for thinking this store was ever a threat to anything.

  Microsoft Working On Steam/Windows Store Crossplay On Rise Of Nations
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-19-2017, 08:19 AM - Forum: Gaming - No Replies

https://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-is...cross-play
Wow. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this crossplay between Steam and another similar service is a first for PC gaming, period.

Quote:Rise of Nations: Extended Edition arrived on the Steam store back in 2014, bringing a remastered version of 2003's critically acclaimed real-time strategy title, Rise of Nations. Today, Microsoft announced that the game is now on its way to another platform, this being the Windows Store.

However, unlike previous games that have arrived for both the Windows Store and Steam, Rise of Nations: Extended Edition will allow players from both platforms to play together in multiplayer. While games with Xbox Play Anywhere functionality have allowed cross-play between Windows 10 and Xbox One users, adding Steam users into the mix is a first for the company.

Oh, no.

Quote:August quotes for RAMs used in VGA graphics cards have risen to US$8.50, up by 30.8% from US$6.50 in July. Both RAM industry leaders Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix have allocated part of their VGA RAM production capacities to producing memories for servers and handsets, fueling the price rally.
...
Although Samsung is rumored to be expanding its VGA RAM capacity in the fourth quarter, the sources pointed out that the related product sales in the fourth quarter will still be seriously undermined as most of the production is done in the third quarter.

  480 Hz Monitor

Quote:A prototype true 480 Hz monitor has found its way to the hands of Blur Busters, who aptly tested whether or not that feature made their blur busting name irrelevant at some point in the future. The verdict? While 480 Hz refresh rates do offer a visible difference in step distances and blur reduction, things can be improved further. But we're talking about a refresh rate where most high-end monitors typically achieve 144 Hz - so 480 Hz is a totally different beast.

  I Hate HTTPS. Here's Why.
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-12-2017, 08:25 PM - Forum: Software & Programming - No Replies

I hate HTTPS. I hate going to the Internet Archive. So many of its webpages are broken thanks to HTTPS. They will not load in Firefox. They will not load in Chrome. No matter how many times I hard refresh with Cntrl+F5, it won't solve the issue. The admins are responsive to reports of the issue, but there are so many broken webpages that I can't report them all, and usually don't report them at all out of frustration. I hate going to Encode dot ru to look at the place. I can't get past the home page, since its subforum pages are broken and will not load, thanks to HTTPS. I sent an email to the admin, and haven't gotten the common courtesy of a response. Hathi Trust Digital Library webpages will occasionally refuse to load thanks to HTTPS, though unlike the other websites, refreshing the webpage solves the issue.

Emailing the admin is not the solution to the problem. You are at the mercy of finding the admin's email address. You are at the mercy of your email not getting caught in the spam filter. You are at the mercy of the admin giving a flying fuck about the fact that their website is broken.

I used to be a supporter of HTTPS, as I like having secure web traffic. Not anymore. HTTPS just adds one more thing that can go wrong. There is enough that can go wrong with web traffic as it is, without HTTPS making it worse for us.

  T-Mobile Now Has the Best Wireless Network

T-Mobile Now Has the Best Wireless Network
[/url]
8-2-2017

Verizon has built its business on charging more for its wireless service because it offers the best network.

That's a claim that has generally been proven by third-party research including the company coming in first on the recent RootMetrics Mobile Performance in the United States report. Verizon has taken top honors with RootMetrics eight straight times on the twice-annual report, something the company has celebrated in television commercials.

A second widely accepted independent report from OpenSignal, however, has shown somewhat different results. In the February version of the company's State of Mobile Networks study, Verizon and T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) were in a virtual tie, with each scoring first place in four of the eight overall categories.

In the latest OpenSignal report, released Aug. 2, things have changed. T-Mobile has moved into the top spot, taking first place in all eight categories.
