Ads for the free version? Oh, I have to pay them to get rid of the ads? Free OS but give us a few bucks here and there... great.

I reviewed the Fury X. It's pretty great, even if it's not a walk-off home run for AMD. The dumb GPU Tach thing mesmerizes me.
 
tl;dr AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X kicks ass. 
The long-awaited Radeon R9 Fury X is packed with power and loving design touches, but it's not quite a walk-off home run for AMD.

Don't buy into the notion that attention is a commodity. Your attention belongs to the people you care about, the task that you are engaged in, and the arts that you enjoy. Your gaze is not a commodity any more than is your touch, or your affection.  You must navigate a world in which corporate interests treat attention as a commodity, but there is no requirement for you to participate actively in this deception.

I'm sideloading an OTA update on a watch because this is just the world we live in now.

Not entirely unexpected, but still a bit surprising. +OnePlus just broke up with us over +David Ruddock's editorial.

No more review units, no invite giveaways that I promised you guys, and likely no further communication (though I hope they at least respond to technical questions).

I'm glad respecting editorial integrity and reception to criticism is high on their list of values. But remembering that part about respect at the end of http://andp.lc/1h9bXjO title, I shouldn't be surprised.

Now that it's out of Early Access I need to buy this to play with my kids. It's the first perfect score we've handed out in years.
 
Kerbal Space Program is more than just an outstanding space sim. It’s the embodiment of everything that’s noteworthy and valuable about PC gaming.
Kerbal Space Program isn't just a fantastic space game. It's one of those games that makes you glad you play on PC, because it could only come to exist on PC.

I'm sorry, I can't associate with you until you buy this game and successfully reach orbit. Goodbye and good luck.

This video of a monkey shooting cars from a gun and then flying away in GTA V is everything glorious about PC gaming and the modding scene.

Introduction
I'm an electronics enthusiast who is lucky enough to make a living as a senior editor for PCWorld. I was a longtime freelancer before that, with my work appearing in Maximum PC, Laptop Magazine, Wired, Gizmodo, FoxNews.com, MSNBC.com and many, many others.

When I'm not writing, I'm usually either reading, listening to music of all types, or neglecting my family by playing waaaaaaaay too much Wasteland 2.
Bragging rights
Biggest beard this side of ZZ Top (and that homeless guy down the street).

Absolutely tremendous food, but loooong wait times. It's totally worth the patience, but you may want to place a take out order if you have young kids in tow. Prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality, too - $10 to $20 for entrees, $8 to $10 for sandwiches, including half-pound burgers. Get the Buffalo tenders!
