Funny enough, when I did live in an apartment, the building next to mine burned down. The people in that apartment smelled "something burning" for two hours before the fire but called no one.

Viagra was not designed to improve erections. It was a heart medication with an interesting side effect at first. That does not mean that it has no use.

"There we go, that should do it."

Well, it is the difference between the "Fiction" and "Non-Fiction" sections, so in this case it does do it. (Yes, I know that lately all "News" is a bit of fiction, but that is another story...)

Submission + - Sony TVs have high input lag, Sony allegedly censors posts about issue

SB5407 writes: Sony's 2015 and 2016 TVS have clearly documented issues with high input lag, but now reddit user GivingCreditWhereDue points to Sony's fourms, where Sony is allegedly censoring any and all customer discussion of the issue, just in time for the busy holiday buying season in the US. It is especially concerning because Sony reportedly advertised the laggy (58.8 ms with 4:4:4 color and HDR) X930D as being "perfect" for their customers that actually stand to lose the most: PS4 gamers.
