I agree with some of the prior sentiment stating that Nina's story thread wasn't really going anywhere, yet I don't think I've ever felt so bad about the death of a TV character. Her reaction to the...

GTC is not really a consumer focused event. I suspect that Nvidia will have plenty ready for the consumer segment by the time Computex hits. For now, they will give their AIB partners more time to...

I wonder what yields will be like for that Pascal-based P100 monster. I suppose it doesn't matter since the enterprise segment allows for tremendous markups.

This still makes me even more...

It did become a much more fascinating show to me as the season unfolded. While the depiction of Chip's perils is considerably more extreme than that faced by the average American, I think a lot of us...

It will be interesting to see how this season fares without Iannucci. I'm guessing it will do well given the people behind it.

I forgot who it was, but I heard someone on TV say that Veep is the...

I want to clarify that the Red Bull comment was not a dig at you, but rather a joke about the stereotype surrounding us gamers.

In one of the more interesting coincidences, I just noticed that...

I'm also done with SLI and refuse to embrace 4K at this time. I've seen SLI technically improve over the years, but its value proposition has largely waned with me.

As for resolution, 1440p is a...

It does seem to me that Philip may be able to change Sandra's opinion of Stan, which is of paramount importance as the last thing he and Elizabeth want is an angry top FBI guy constantly keeping tabs...

Respect for the victims and their families is always a concern with these shows, but I think "American Crime Story" did an adequate job in casting a sympathetic light on the Goldman family and making...

Yup, that is the key point that igreg and I were trying to hammer home earlier. The way the defense was able to leverage that was perhaps the knockout blow.

I'll just say that it was another top-notch episode, and that the additional dramatic creations such as F. Lee Bailey's address to the southern appellate court put it over the top.

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)
The French Connection (1971)

Are you still watching this show? Speaking for myself, anything that I deem average or not highly entertaining is not worth my time. I would have dumped this show long ago if I felt that way.

I recall reading that Hurricane Katrina will be the focus for next season. There's a whole lot of possibilities for that. Ray Nagin and others ought to brace themselves. ;)

What’s funny is that I did not even think about the import of the F word’s usage on FX until I saw others bring it up. I guess I overlooked it as use of the word is second nature in the real world....
