Avast Exposed for Selling Browsing Data

Avast's free antivirus software has just recently come under fire for selling it's user's browsing data to companies like Google, Microsoft, Pepsi, Sephora, Home Depot, Yelp, Intuit, and many others. Interestingly Avast's data collection includes searches on Google and Google Maps, YouTube videos, LinkedIn searches and profile visits, as well as what users view on PornHub. It should be no surprise though that this is the case with Avast as anything you get free now on the internet such as Facebo

Temtem? Pokemon? Huh?

Pokemon fans have been asking for it for years, most of us have wondered what it would be like and well..here it is! There's one thing though and that is that it's not made by Nintendo! Temtem was created by a game development company by the name of Crema based out of Madrid, Spain. This massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure was successfully funded in a Kickstarter campaign on June 3, 2018. The game is published by Humble. Temtem is still currently in development but was released t

Microsoft Leaves 250 Million Customer Records Exposed Online

Anyone with a web browser would have been able to access the data with no username or password before it was just recently patched. The records went as far back as 2005 but the exposure lasted only two days and was caused by a misconfigured internal customer support database.    "This issue was specific to an internal database used for support case analytics and does not represent an exposure of our commercial cloud services." - Microsoft   Most personally identifiable inform

Death to RGB!

More and more we are starting to see a showing of people who are over RGB themed cases, GPU's, Fan's, AIO Coolers, and so on. They want to start seeing things back to the more simplistic time with less lights and froo froo. Getting back to the basics means less cost when manufacturing hardware too. Like the excerpt pictured above I pulled from an add I got this morning there is a movement in the industry getting back to the basics as well. This makes a lot of sense from an economical stance but

BlockFi - Earn Interest on Crypto

You can buy crypto and hold it so you can watch it grow into the future, or you can buy it and move it to BlockFi and watch it gain interest on top of it's normal future growth. I've chosen the last option as currently no other bank offers interest like this at 6.2% per year for Bitcoin and 4.1% per year for Ethereum. Interest is compounded and payed at the beginning of every month and in case you worried about the legitness of BlockFi, know that it is backed by Coinbase, Winklevoss, and Fidelit

For us gamers though there are some great deals on every platform and Epic has been giving out free games every day on top of endless $10 coupons. Green Man Gaming is also running some of the cheapest deals I've seen including RDR2 for $43.19 as well as many others quite a bit cheaper than normal. Of course we can't forget Steam's Winter Sale also, which needs no introduction. If you've be

Sorry for the lack of updates lately folks. I've been pretty drained lately from the back issues I've been having and by the time I get to a computer I can't concentrate on much. This reminds me though, if any of you out there would be interested in writing on the site, let me know! 😉

Red Dead Redemption 2 - My Impression

It's sometimes hard to sound objective when you yourself are having no real issues while many others are running a video game. Currently the web is littered with complaints about crashing, stuttering, etc. in RDR2 but I'm not having that problem. What I am having are a few disconnects for whatever reason. It's not that frequent but it's there. I finally had to speak up at a couple of sites online stating that I was having a blast and the game is worth but that's a hard pill to swallow for many w

Move Over Ogame!

Remember all those good times paying Ogame when it wasn't P2W? So many of us were playing it off and on several of us always wondered what it would be like to have a fully 3D game like Ogame but better and not P2W. Well here we have it! Outscape is just exactly what we had always hoped for and imagined and you can grab it on Steam right now for 22.49 until October 29th but not to worry, it's only 25.00 normally so you could always pick it up later if you can't afford it now. I myself don't have

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I know the following trailer came out a couple of days ago and I'm just now posting it but if you haven't seen it yet you should really watch it if you are any type of Star Wars fan. I've already pre-ordered tickets and am going to watch it at a local theater with some friends. For many this is kind of an emotional experience as it is the last of the movies. Star Wars helped me fall in love with Sci-Fi, space, and the idea of there being other life out there besides us on Earth. Are you going to

Red Dead Redemption 2 - Release Info

I have a feeling that some of the people I know might be playing this when it hits on PC finally.  In a PC Gamer article, the author who's played it on console said "It's basically a massive cowboy RPG". I have to admit my interest is peaked after reading this article. Rockstar set the release date of November 5th with their own launcher including special bonuses available to players who pre-purchase through the Rockstar Games Launcher starting October 9th.

Surface Neo (Tablet) & Surface Duo (Phone) Show Off Folding Abilities & More

The Surface Neo, Microsoft's newly announced dual screen folding tablet is eye catching and features a 360-degree hinge for it's dual 9 inch displays so that it can be used as a small sized tablet that is capable of having it's screen size doubled.     Even more surprising is the details about a fold-able phone! You might be thinking why would they even try that again after their last fail in the mobile market but to make this even more interesting, it's going to be usin

Altice Mobile Offering $20 Unlimited Mobile Plan for Suddenlink Customers

More competition is always better especially when you can get an unlimited cell phone plan for $20 a month. The question is if the service is actually reliable and not full of hidden fees. Non Suddenlink/Optimum customers will have to pay $30 instead of the discounted $20 price that Suddenlink and Optimum customers get but personally I think I'll let early adopters test this before I jump on the bandwagon. Below is their plan details:

It looks like we'll see ice and snow for the first time as well and a train filled with loot making it a challenging in motion object to land on and fight for. I don't about you but this looks like fun and I hope I can get some of you to join me in checking it out when it hits October 1st!

PCIe 4.0 Spanks PCIe 3.0 - Comparison

In a comparison done by techspot.com the numbers clearly show a huge spankin done to PCIe v3.0.

PCIe 4.0 SSDs that "never die"?

Samsung will be releasing two new SSD lines both utilizing PCIe 4.0 granting faster speeds but also are fail proof. The PM1733 and PM1735 series will sport 19 different models  using the HHHL (card-type) and 2.5-inch U.2 formats. The average person will most likely not be able to afford these as there were designed to be used in data centers and servers ranging in storage sizes starting at 0.8TB to a tantalizing 30.72TB! They are said to perform at sequential write speeds of 3,800MB/s. The U.2 D
