Re: Deaf man sues Pornhub over lack of closed captions

Be honest. Most watch with the sound muted anyway. I did look up the first video the guy is suing over and it now has 1 million views on p0rnhub. He doesn't have a case as the intent of the ADA is reasonable accommodation. The sites also have a filter for closed captioning. I hope that the outcome i...

Re: Cooler Master Redesigns its TIM Packaging so Parents Don't Think Their Kids are Doing Drugs

I like that design too. I keep an old cvs key-chain card for spreading. If I ever need to buy new paste, I'd buy Cooler Master just for the convenience. I just looked and I have ~1 CC of MX4 left.

Re: Here's your fake news: Facebook

It's sad that among most of my Facebook Friends, I've had to unfollow them because they post so much crap. It's also amazing how many racists still have Facebook pages. Of course, everything is weighed against ad revenue. I still don't understand why Zuckerberg didn't sell Facebook years ago and was...

Re: Sony 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player UBP-X800M2

I left a review on Sony's page and got a followup. Note that Erin linked me to the troubleshooting steps for the X700. I looked at these steps and don't think holding the power button for 10 seconds is an acceptable solution to a player randomly freezing. I did check the firmware for the X800M2 befo...

Re: 4K Monitor Question

This site is super helpful. The reviews also state if they monitor is HDCP compatible or not.

Re: Steve McQueen's 1968 "Bullitt" Mustang sells for $3.74 million at Mecum

I saw on Motor1.com that nobody knows who bought it. The winner was anonymous.

I was also under the impression there was more that one car used for the movie.

Re: 4K Monitor Question

Thanks FP. I'm still not sure what I want to do. It may depend on how the Panasonic player I ordered to replace the Sony I'm returning looks on my current monitor. Hopefully it's like the Sony and all I have to do is plug it in and set the output to 1080P 60. I know that I'm not buying a new video c...

4K Monitor Question

I'm considering a new monitor. I'm currently on an HD with a GTX 1080 (non-TI) and have my PS4 pro, Switch, and Ultra HD Blu-Ray player hooked to to it through an HDMI switch. I'm considering this one: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B074PK4R2H/?coliid=IW5EKMA55UCQM&colid=356EQG6FQWXHN&psc=1&...

Asuka Elected In Taiwan

https://kotaku.com/cosplaying-politician-elected-in-taiwan-1840984735 I think this just what Taiwan needs to fight the Chinese. The 27-year-old Democratic Progressive Party candidate won a tight race in New Taipei City’s 12th District over the weekend. Taiwan News reports that Lai defeated former T...

Re: Sony 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player UBP-X800M2

I like Samsung too but they stopped releasing players in the US last year. I didn't see one except through third party sellers. One perk of buying through Amazon is the return window. https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/16/samsung-exits-blu-ray-players-in-us/ There's not many manufacturers left. Stream...

Sony 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player UBP-X800M2

Back in December, I decided I wanted a dedicated Blu-ray player rather than use the PS4-Pro. On December 9th, I ordered a Sony UBP-X800M2. The unit is very quiet and the picture looks great at 1080. I don't yet have a 4K monitor. So, why buy a 4K player? I couldn't find a new Blu-ray player that rev...

Re: For tech-weary Midwest farmers, 40-year-old tractors now a hot commodity

I understand locking the computer for liability purposes but it's BS that a 3rd party can't work on them. I think legislation stating that the 3rd parts assumes liability would be sufficient. I look for this to get worse as cars transition to electric.
