Who Still Plays PC Games? . . . Only About 1.2 Billion People . . .

The 1.2 billion number reflects PC gamers.   There is another group that mainly or just plays via a gaming console (more folks use the PC than the consoles).  The combined total is about 1.8 billion.

This is the main reason Intel decided to get into that market and start challenging Nvidia and AMD.   Additionally, the “Workstation” PC users (at companies, organizations,etc.) are needing more processing power for video, CAD, complex graphic simulations, etc.

Microsoft Should Name Windows 10 Updates After Dogs . .

Currently, MS-Windows update names are . . . really . . . blah!   Not much marketing or creativity there.   But everyone (almost) LOVES dogs!

And, if they would adapt the method Ubuntu uses . . . the next update might just be “Collegial Collie”. . .

Intel gets into high-end GPU’ing . . . Competing with nVidia & AMD

Well, it’s about time – – would like to see more competition yet.

While current Intel gpu chipsets do fine with 90% of 3d accelerated graphics, they don’t handle high-end graphics “efficiently” (high-end gaming, extensive media editing, etc.).

Containerizing Facebook via Firefox Extensions . .

Per the folks at “MakeTechEasier” – – Firefox users can now disable Facebook privacy intrusions (especially tracking of browsing history from your other open tabs).

This is done by “containerizing” Facebook so it doesn’t have view, save, write, etc. capability outside of the container.

See this article for more specifics (note – – this is easy to setup but it disables some FB features).
