Comment Re:Cheating more of an issue for diesels (Score 3, Interesting) 203

Motorcycles cheat like crazy. Almost all of them. They severely lean out portions of the fuel map that get used in the test and leave other portions at optimal or even a little rich to reduce warranty claims. First thing most owners do is buy an exhaust system for the sound, often eliminating the cat, and a tuner to fix the horrible EPA test cheater fueling.

Apple and Nike Settle FuelBand Lawsuit 14

An anonymous reader writes: Nike and co-defendant Apple have reached an agreement to settle a class action suit that alleged false advertising from the two companies indicating that the FuelBand fitness watch had capabilities to track health. The two companies agreed that Nike would pay $2.4 million out to customers who purchased a FuelBand between January 19, 2012 and June 17, 2015. Apple was a co-defendant in the case, but only Nike has been found liable for falsely advertising the wristband.

Comment Re:no hdmi 2.0 = useless for big screen gaming (Score 1) 77

Correct. There is no such thing as an adapter. At some point someone may make a display port to hdmi one, but at the moment there is no way to get 4k at 60hz on an hdmi tv except to buy an Nvidia card. I researched a ton and then ended up selling my existing AMD card and buying a 970 when I got tired of 30hz.

UO:R didn't kill it. EA did. It was just time for a sequel, it was getting dated. There was a sequel on the pipeline, but EA bought Origin and axed it in favor of making low budget expansions and milking what was there instead of risking a sequel. I hate EA to this day for that. They killed the beat mmo franchise to ever exist.
