2 billion dollars, early start in development, should have been released in Q4 2014, and yet they still couldn't release this in Q4 2015 for the holiday season?! Q1 2016 either means March 2016 or it gets delayed to Q2 2016. Steam's HTC designed VR looks pretty good. So I wonder how these 2 will compete in price and function.

Since the earliest days of the Oculus Kickstarter, the Rift has been shaped by gamers, backers, developers, and enthusiasts around the world. Today, we’re incredibly excited to announce that the Oculus Rift will be shipping to consumers in Q1 2016, with pre-orders later this year. The Rift delivers on the dream of consumer VR with compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for v...

I didn't link the direct Channel 4 interview video because they don't deserve all the attention they are getting from this. Robert was professional about everything. And I am shocked Robert didn't exit the interview sooner. The interviewer had clear indications both verbally and body language telling him that Robert did not like where the questions were going. It was a contracted 7 minute Avengers movie promotion interview. And it should have stayed on course.

Likely the case here, but the interviewer should have given Robert the questions that would be asked, before the interview was even scheduled and accepted. And so the interviewer shouldn't be surprised if the interview is cut short when deviating from the questions. Kudos to Robert for being professional. I am happy he exited.

I am so tired of THIN phones. Why keep making them thinner and thinner? I would rather have a thicker phone with a bigger battery and stronger casing. I am not saying phones need to be old bar phone thick. But it's getting out of control!

Is it really a "trick" or "dup" when the seller didn't know what it was worth? The seller clearly says he didn't know it was worth more. So how can he go on to say he was tricked? If the buyer knew it was worth much much more and didn't tell the seller, is that really a trick? If he told him what it was worth, then the seller would have sold it so cheap. It's called negotiating. If the seller was smart, they would have looked for another opinion on the value. Are we suppose to feel bad for this seller?

This is still my favorite wireless mouse. Whether I travel or not. Desktop, laptop, HTPC, etc. It's often on sale way below it's $30 MSRP. It's a steal at $15. And it sometimes drops for $10-12. I own multiples. The Blue tracking works great on everything I use it with. Great size for me. Wheel is just right. Clicks are quiet. All around great wireless mouse.

Noooooooo! 

I love lego games. But Lego is now joining the money grabbing tactics of Disney Infinity and Skylanders style games that use NFC tagged and over priced toys to add characters and items into a virtual world. Want to play as Marty McFly? Not only do you have to buy the character, you have to make sure you don't lose the physical minifig and then you need to swap physical objects to change virtual characters and vehicles. What a marketing ploy! Also known on Nintendo as amiibo. From a business view, it's pure profit gold! From a collectors view, it's yet another thing to collect. From someone that just wants to play the game with the ability to unlock all the characters for 1 low(ish) price with lots of replay value, this is terrible!

Normally I enjoy the Vsauce channels. I really do like that they have The Muppets​ on this episode! My main issue with this theoretical question, is that the proposed answer doesn't take into account the low volume of air moving or the possible aerodynamics of Quicksilver. Still great to see the Muppets. :)

Free for home use. An easy way to view your Windows Dump file created when a BSOD occurs. My system is usually stable, but I had 2 BSODs in the last 30 days. Using this tool, it looks like my AMD video driver is causing the issue. I like the straight forward report of this freeware tool. And it also is a clean download right from their website. Which is a nice change as so much freeware is now including malware such as Opencandy, toolbars, etc. This one is clean.

WHY?! At $500 this is still a very over priced device. It is nearly identical to the Surface 2 which currently sells for $399 with the same size SSD of 64 GB. But this $100 premium only bumps you up to the Full version of Windows running an Atom quad core, versus the RT (ARM) version of Windows with a Quad core ARM CPU of the Surface 2. I don't think that difference alone is worth $100! Maybe if it came with 128 GB SSD, 4 GB of RAM, and the type cover keyboard at $500. But that combo is $700 for a tablet style device with Netbook performance! Even at $500 it would only be a moderately priced device that might be worth it for the form-factor.

Microsoft is back with a brand new Surface 3 tablet, but this time things are a little different. While the original Surface RT and Surface 2 tablets didn’t let you run traditional Windows...

I just went to Bell Honda for the first time. While it is closet to my home, I have generally been going to another Honda Dealership close to work. I took my 2003 Odyssey to Bell Honda for recall work and transmission fluid exchange. While I have had good experiences with various Honda Dealers and Service centers, my service advisor Brian Appleton, and the tech that worked on my van, Jacob Murillo, really made this visit stand out. I wanted my transmission fluid exchanged per the maintenance schedule as I am going to Disneyland in the near future. With service schedules in mind, I was asked about my timing belt. I didn't have that listed in my personal records as I am the 2nd owner. Brian was very helpful by contacting a dealership in California. Where he pulled up more records and found that the last time the belt was replaced, was also the first time. Back at 86k miles. Since I am at 161k miles, I was way overdue for a new timing belt. Had Brian not taken the time and effort to ask about my maintenance history as a new customer to their dealership, I could very well be stranded on my trip to Disneyland. At the same time, he was helpful in making sure other items were inspected and replaced using the same labor cost under the timing belt replacement. This of course is nothing new for any good shop to provide, but he also made sure they were competitive with non-dealer prices so I could do everything at one time. Which not only made sure I didn't spend more than I had to, but also that I didn't have to deal with more time without my van and going all over the place. Likely duplicating labor cost. Jacob Murillo, the mechanic, spent extra time at not cost to me, to make sure repairs where done correctly. While he did run into an issue, he made sure that was not an excuse to rush things. Both Brian and Jacob showed me what quality service and repair is all about. And that is something that really stood out to me above my other experiences. Which those Honda experiences where great as well, but this one was even more and I appreciate the extra effort that came from both of them. As much as I have had good experiences at Honda service centers, I really want to thank Bell Honda for having people like Brian Appleton and Jacob Murillo. It does make a noticeable difference, even when it's excellence all around from Honda service centers.
