Kanye West Explains Why He’s Begging Mark Zuckerberg to Help With $53 Million Debt

There he goes again. Kanye West jumped back on Twitter on Monday, February 15, to explain his rant from late Sunday, when he begged Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to help bail him out of $53 million in debt.

West first revealed his massive financial woes on Valentine’s Day, February 14

His cries for help continued in several follow-up tweets. “Mark, I am publicly asking you for help…one of the coolest things you could ever do is to help me in my time of need

New dad Zuckerberg has yet to respond to West’s pleas for help.

  SC Justice Antonin Scalia dead aged 79
Posted by: gstanford - 02-14-2016, 10:40 AM - Forum: News & Politics - Replies (15)


Finally Reagan's conservative war horse is gone.

President Obama has declared he will appoint a replacement prior to the next election.

The republicans are all but guaranteed to outdo themselves in their efforts to filibuster and obstruct whatever choice Obama makes given they have just lost a senior conservative.

Hillary Clinton said in a statement that she "did not hold Justice Scalia's views, but he was a dedicated public servant who brought energy and passion to the bench."

But, she added, "The Republicans in the Senate and on the campaign trail who are calling for Justice Scalia's seat to remain vacant dishonor our Constitution. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility here that it cannot abdicate for partisan political reasons."

  Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120 AIO CPU Cooler
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 02-13-2016, 10:13 AM - Forum: General Hardware - Replies (5)


Quote:Now we are convinced that Arctic Cooling is trolling every other maker of AIO coolers. Seriously, why would you buy anything else unless you absolutely couldn't fit this thing in your PC.

The Liquid Freezer 120 is one of the quietest coolers that also happens to be one of the best performing coolers and is additionally, one of the least expensive coolers. You know that saying "Performance, silence, and price, pick two." (I might have just made that up but follow me here) Arctic Cooling let's you have it all with the Liquid Freezer 120.

With the best value, quietest sound levels and highest level performance of any 120mm AIO I happily award the Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120 the [H] Gold Award.

(Editor's note: At time of publishing this, the street price on the Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120 has dropped to $69.99 at Amazon with Prime Shipping. Obviously this makes the AIO just that much more of a value.)

  Trump saves 1,000 Indianapolis jobs that Carrier was going to move to Mexico!!!
Posted by: dmcowen674 - 02-12-2016, 05:27 AM - Forum: News & Politics - Replies (82)

Update: 11-30-2016

Trump is not even President yet and he saved jobs from leaving the U.S.

Getting more details and official News conference will be tomorrow 11-31-2016

President-elect Donald Trump and Carrier have reached a deal that will keep nearly 1,000 factory jobs in Indiana

Carrier poses an early critical test for Trump, who promised during the campaign to keep American jobs from fleeing to Mexico.

Trump and Mike Pence, the vice president-elect and current governor of Indiana, will be in Indiana on Thursday to announce the deal, Carrier said.

The company, which is owned by defense contractor United Technologies, announced in February that it would close two Indiana plants -- a Carrier plant in Indianapolis that employs 1,400 workers and a United Technologies Electronic Controls plant in nearby Huntington, Indiana, that employs 700.

Carrier did not elaborate on the terms of the deal, but it is on the record, as are most other major multinational businesses, as wanting to see a cut in corporate tax rates, especially as it applies to cash earned overseas.

The fate of the more than 400 remaining jobs in Indianapolis was not immediately clear. Nor was it clear whether the 700 jobs at the Huntington plan would be saved.

Carrier to relocate 1,400 Indianapolis jobs to Mexico

Chris Nelson, president of HVAC Systems and Services North American, issued the following statement:

    “This move is intended to address the challenges we continue to face in a rapidly changing HVAC industry, with the continued migration of the HVAC industry to Mexico, including our suppliers and competitors, and ongoing cost and pricing pressures driven, in part, by new regulatory requirements.

    “Relocating our operations to a region where we have existing infrastructure and a strong supplier base will allow us to operate more cost effectively so that we can continue to produce high-quality HVAC products that are competitively positioned while continuing to meet customer needs.

    “This decision is difficult and we recognize the impact on employees, their families and the community. We are committed to ensuring that our employees are treated respectfully and to working closely with their representatives throughout this transition.”

Mayor Joe Hogsett releases this statement on Carrier’s announcement:

    “Today’s surprise announcement was without warning and incredibly disappointing. While I am obviously concerned about the economic impact, my top priority is the well-being of the hardworking families affected by this decision.

    A job lost in any part of our community affects us all, and I believe these are the times we must come together as one city to lift up our neighbors. That is why this afternoon I will issue an Executive Order to create a task force that will convene local, state, and federal resources and direct every tool at our disposal toward supporting these workers in the days ahead.”


Trump says he will tax Carrier 35% for every Air Conditioner they ship to the U.S.


Trump: If I'm president, Carrier won't move to Mexico

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump says if he's elected president, Indianapolis will keep the 1,400 jobs being lost by Carrier's move.

The presidential candidate told supporters at a rally in Louisville Tuesday that the company's bosses won't move to Mexico if he's elected.

Trump says the other option Carrier will face is a 35 percent tax on products it plans to produce in Monterrey, Mexico.

Trump's statements come on the same day he won the majority of GOP Super Tuesday primaries.

  Intel Skylake CPU hits 7GHZ - Intel then stops overclockers
Posted by: dmcowen674 - 02-09-2016, 01:56 PM - Forum: General Hardware - Replies (3)

[url=http://hothardware.com/news/skylake-breaks-7ghz-in-intel-overclocking-world-record]Skylake Breaks 7GHz In Intel Overclocking World Record

Equipped with an ASRock motherboard, G.SKILL memory, and a beefy 1.3KW Antec power supply - not to mention liquid nitrogen - Lam managed to break through the 7GHz barrier to settle in at 7025.66MHz.

As impressive as 7GHz is, it's not the highest frequency we've ever seen. Over at HWBOT, we can see that the overall world record belongs to The Stilt, who pushed an AMD FX-8370 to a ridiculous 8,722.78MHz. And interestingly, that didn't require the disabling of cores as all 8 were left functional. Back in October of 2013, WYTIWX submitted a result of 8,543.71MHz with his Intel Celeron 352.

It's official: Intel shuts down the cheap overclocking party by closing Skylake loophole

The cheap overclocking party is over. An upcoming microcode update from Intel will close the door on a loophole that let users goose Skylake CPUs that weren't meant to be overclocked. 

The company confirmed to PCWorld on Monday that an update would “align” the CPUs in question.

”Intel regularly issues updates for our processors which our partners voluntarily incorporate into their BIOS,” an Intel spokesman said. “The latest update provided to partners includes, among other things, code that aligns with the position that we do not recommend overclocking processors that have not been designed to do so. Additionally, Intel does not warranty the operation of the processor beyond its specifications.”

That’s basically a kinder way of saying: You shouldn’t be overclocking these CPUs, so stop it.

Why this matters: Since December, overclockers have been able to run lower-priced CPUs above their rated speeds by cranking up the bclock setting on a chip. Intel normally charges more for such capability, so budget-minded overclockers were overjoyed. That party, though, is about to end.
It was great fun, but it was just one of those things

Such a move by Intel shouldn’t come as a shocker, nor is it unprecedented. The company previously shut the door on overclocking with cheaper H-series and B-series chipsets, which pushed people to pricier Z-series chipset motherboards.

Exclamation Intel Announces Intent To Betray CPU Progress After 2021

Unbelievable. They intend to betray the end users and progress itself, in the name of reduced power consumption, just because that's trendy. They just gave AMD a golden opportunity to catch up after 2021.

It's pretty good. Suffice to say that crowdfunding isn't enough for smartphone development these days.
