First Person Shooter, or FPS, games are one of the most common gaming genres out there, but when it comes to gaming mice designed specifically for the genre, there is surprisingly very few out there. Of course, if you ask any professional FPS gamer, it’s easy to understand why. As FPS gaming relies almost solely on the quality of the main switches along with the accuracy of the sensor, FPS gamers typically select simple mice with quality switches and ultra-accurate sensors making gaming mice such as the Zowie EC2, Razer DeathAdder Elite, Logitech G Pro, or SteelSeries Rival 300 some of the most popular gaming mice for FPS gamers.

In this day and age of hackers, government spying, and Nazi ISPs putting down arbitrary rules on who gets full speed to view which service, having a VPN service is by far one of the most important things to have for anyone on the internet.
While I’m sure we would all run VPNs if we had the choice, the problem with VPNs is that it costs money. At the end of the day, VPN provider needs to pay for bandwidth, servers and technicians to run the VPN server. While the costs for a decent VPN service are generally under $15 per month, paying for a VPN is a bit like paying for insurance. You just don’t really want to do it until it’s too late.

Firefox version 54 finally adds multi-process support, bringing it in line with the modern browser process design.
Before version 54, Firefox had all of its tabs and extensions running on one process. When one tab stops working in the process tree, the problem could manifest other tabs or cause the whole session to shut down. In contrast, browsers like Google Chrome separates each tab into its own process which makes Chrome blazing fast and more stable, but it comes at the price of using more memory and resources than other browsers.
Recognizing the need for multi-process, but also recognizing the drawbacks of allowing unlimited processes to be created, [...]

High data users, rejoice! T-Mobile’s “unlimited plans” just got slightly more unlimited as a T-Mobile employee recently notified the T-Mobile sub-reddit community that T-Mobile raised the threshold for data de-prioritization for unlimited data users from 28GB to 30GB.
T-Mobile adopted a data de-prioritization strategy several years ago, during a time when the industry accepted practice was to throttle data speeds for high data users. In response to the displeasure many wireless customers voiced across all carriers in regards to throttling, T-Mobile instead began de-prioritizing data for users who surpassed a certain data threshold. Previously [...]
When everybody else has a better unlimited plan than you, you need to figure out why yours sucks and how you can be a bit more competitive. In a recent announcement, AT&T did just that.
AT&T will not have two unlimited plan tiers which will include Unlimited Choice and Unlimited Plus.
Unlimited Choice will be cheap, slow, and all around pretty bad, but it will be unlimited and it will be cheap. Priced at $60/mo for one line, $115/mo for two lines, $155/mo for four lines, etc. the Unlimited Choice plan will include unlimited talk, text, and data, but data will be limited to 3Mbps and streaming video is capped at 480p with a maximum bitrate of [...]
