Great Britain Decides to Leave European Union at ~52% to 48%

Wow, even at that close of a margin, it makes me glad that in America big decisions like this require more than 66%, no matter how legislatures are dysfunctional. I hope they have an exit strategy implemented right now because yikes.


While You Buy Your Shiny New Guns to Protect Yourself, Make Sure You Take Precautions

15 June 2016 - 10:47 AM

Because the consequences are very serious. http://www.motherjon...ence-in-america

 

People rarely get killed in mass shootings, but accidents are a dime a dozen. While you find the best deals on guns, I hope you use the savings for that one day you won't have to go to the hospital for a gunshot wound.


Apple Opposes the "Right to Repair"

12 June 2016 - 08:21 PM

The Huffington Post reports on Apple's efforts to stymie laws against repairing your iPod, trying to make sure they're the only company fixing these products. This is despite the fact that the company charges an astronomical amount for repairs, and like that old notion of the company and their computers, you might as well buy a new one. Some people are definitely against Apple's practices, especially when it can clearly generate lots of e-waste. http://www.huffingto...4b0ed593f14fdea

 

"Right to Repair" bills are being considered in a few states, and if you visited ifixit in the past year, you may have noticed their desire to have you support this bill. Generally, it's you break a thing you own, you should be able to fix it. But tech companies have made it increasingly harder for repairmen and hobbyists to do so, especially if you've seen how unnecessarily tiny things can be.


Best Buy Deal of the Day Thread

22 May 2016 - 10:22 AM

I guess if the Video Game Deals forum has one, this one might as well need one.

 

Add your deal to this thread, or use the wiki tools.

 

For May 22, 2016, the Complete Teenage Mutant Ninja Series on DVD in that van set is $50, and comes with a $10 Gift Card. http://www.bestbuy.c...0&skuId=4788000


PSOne LCD Screen Used $7 on Ebay Shipped

20 May 2016 - 11:12 PM

I saw this on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/...=item464e57a3d7

 

I bought one of these last month from TotalConsole on ebay at a higher price and it works great. You can also use the screen for other things like a DVD or NES if you buy a cheap camcorder cable with female to female RCA adapters.

 

Worth a try, even if it's exactly not clear what it is. I expect this order to be cancelled.
