I will keep my trackball and wireless keyboard, both of which use the unifying receiver.


That. Also... not enough buttons. And no adjustable grips? That's no gaming mouse!

Its cordless so only a non-gamer would attempt to game with it anyway
They say it is latency improved and faster than some corded mice but in the chart they show mid range mice from their rivals. Lets see them put the numbers up their from their top of the line wired gaming mice and see where this new fangled 'faster wireless' mouse falls. Thats what I thought, nothing to see here, now move along.
Its easy to know what you are against, quite an honour to know what you are for.

More details on that SUV going through the wall of a parking structure and landing upside down here. The video from which that GIF was snipped is here.

The driver escaped without any significant injuries.

I was going to try to post the pic from the first link but it was rather large and took too long to post here. It shows that the SUV fell about 40 feet.

I thought it rather bizarre to have a venetian gondola in a building in Quatar . . . with a sign in English. It fits the kitsch of Vegas though. ;)

Evidence of a huge battle during the Bronze Age near the Baltic Sea coast which has been all but forgotten:

Image


This arrowhead embedded in the humerus (the bone of the upper arm) found 1996 eventually led to more extensive searches of the area. Making back-of-the-envelope estimates: there may have been something in the range of 4000 fighters involved in this battle. Lots more details and more reasoning to put together the story makes a fascinating read.

Mach 6 capability. Though I suspect we'll have to double that estimate of 1B each.

Though I think the most remarkable thing is they now say they can build it. Those prior tests must have been considerably more successful than originally mentioned.

Maybe they're planning on using it, or an upgrade later, to refuel the AWACS. Though it doesn't appear that way now.
