Dont even need to. ALL of the components have power scaming features. That 600 watt gaming pc uses less power than its monitor when youre browsing the web (50-75 watts). People seem to not understand that the power ratings are maximums, not constant.

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.

Here is something really depressing, I bought some for my wife for $450. Then I found some stupid website that gives a coupon code I give to the pharmacist that makes it $20. Im like.... so because I didnt know the magical coupon code yall took me for all I was worth? Basically the coupons sites give out just get them to charge you what they charge the insurance company. Now if I could only find something similar for doctors who rip off everyone paying cash. Insurance price for visit $125, paying customer price for visit $500. WTF
