Don't watch this.

This is the most fucking stressful thing I've ever seen.  Why the fuck are kids such fucking dipshit retards?  PUT THE MOTHERFUCKING PHONE DOWN.  Jesus christ this got me so riled up I just want to punch a bag of infants.

+Thomas Olson Right? I have no intentions of dying yet. I'm still a virgin hahaha. But seriously, it's not just their lives at risk. The people on the road with them are also at risk. Selfish asses.

+Kevin Danger Powers​ yeah mine were the old Force series F120. But they were free, and they worked great for a couple years til I replaced them.

Edit - oops I'm thinking Corsair, not Crucial. They both start with a C. Ha! My bad.

Rly tho?

Thanks, mister truck driver, for flipping your semi in the middle of the road and causing the closure of a major highway.

And thanks to you Sounders for playing a game, and all you fans for adding to the conglomerate pandemonium and turmoil.

I guess I'm fucking stuck here FOREVER.  I'm just going to starve, because there's no way in Satan's ballsack that I'm going out in that madness.  :`(

So, I ordered this 40" 4k monitor last week, along with an Ergotron monitor arm mount.

Currently, this monitor is seeing limited availability in the US, due to the fact that it's only just now been made available in North America.  Therefore, I'm in for a bit of a wait, but it's going to be so worth it!

There's a super-long thread on HardOCP forums (http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1838713) regarding this new monitor.  It's looking like the new big thing is going to be this 40" 4k display trend, as it sits in the sweet spot for size and pixel density at 4k resolutions.  A few other manufacturers are starting to develop their own 40" 4k monitors now, too.

21:9 aspect ratio monitors are great, but then you have this stubby little screen that you can hardly fit anything on, and chances are you'll run into a lot of applications and games that don't support 21:9 aspect ratio.  With this monitor, not only do you have a ton more pixels to play with, but you have the option of running in 21:9 if you want, with black bars on the top and bottom.  I'm totally okay with that. :D

And this is why I held out with a 5 year old videocard.  AMD's got nothing that can begin to compete with this.
At GTC, the GPU Technology Conference, last year, Nvidia announced its new “next-gen” GPU architecture, Pascal. Yesterday, at this year’s conference, NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang rev

New toy!  Nitecore EAX Hammer LED flashlight.  This bad boy is BRIGHT!

It's got several modes of operation, including a turbo mode, which boosts the output to its full 2000 lumens, but even on medium, it's bright as hell.  There's ultra-low, low, med, high, and ultra-high (or turbo mode).  Also, it has a number of strobe operating modes, one of which I can see being a total eye nuke to an assailant.

I can't really show brightness on a camera, but just looking at the reflecting light, not even in the brightest modes, it will burn hot spots into your vision for a while afterward.  You can shine it into the trees in full daylight and see it.  It houses two Cree LEDs--really amazing pieces of technology.

Oh, and it's got the added bonus of being able to operate as a bludgeoning (or life-saving, I guess :P) device, hence the "Hammer" name.  This thing seems extremely well built.  Oh, and it's waterproof for up to two meters!

It operates on eight AA batteries and is supposed to be the world's brightest flashlight that uses AA batteries.  There are brighter flashlights out there, for sure, but I seriously cannot imagine ever needing more than 2000 lumens.  Holy shit, this thing feels like it could burn holes in the atmosphere.

I use Eneloop rechargeable batteries, with the latest gen wall charger (Panasonic BQ-CC17) that charges them pretty quickly.  Supposedly, these can be stored with 100% charge and still retain 70% after 5 years.  Fantastic batteries.  And now I finally have a use for them. :D

I did shine it up at the stars a few times. :P I could see the light beam through the air but the sky was clear.

This TV is currently $500 for the next 11 hours on Amazon.  Three off them wouldn't break the bank.  This is friggin crazy and actually quite tempting. :D

Fix my phone!  - 
 
Anybody else having this issue?

I recently got the OTA update to Android 5.0.1 on my Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 4.  Since then, I've noticed various bugs and annoyances, but this one is a show-stopper.

Some apps fail to update or install, stating that "Package Access Helper" has stopped.  I haven't had this happen with Play Store apps, only the Amazon Appstore.

I had 2 or 3 others do this when they received updates, but uninstalling and reinstalling them fixed the problem with those apps and they installed fine.  However, with Badland, Amazon told me it had an update, but this error occurred.  I uninstalled it and now I cannot reinstall it.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Appstore as well.

I've read about this error online but it seems really rare and only apparently in custom ROMs, which I do not have.  WTF?

Any ideas?

This is nutty.  PC gaming with three 40" 4k monitors, triple SLI GTX980s.

That monitor (TV, technically) is normally $1200, but is on sale on Amazon for $500 for the next 11 hours or so.  Tempting. :P
