Unhappy luddite

I love the march of technology, but I can see we're heading in the wrong direction. I am not happy to have to think like a luddite, but it's necessary for survival. Sometimes you need to know when to say "Stop. This ain't good".

I see they're selling DNA manipulation kits for 100 dollars on the internet. Can't be good. If there's one thing we don't need it is antibiotika resistent E.coli bacteria created by some derp in his home.

The calm before the storm: AMD's Zen bears down on Intel CPUs

NanoMeter

I've been using AMD since 2001

And has been pleased with the cost/performance ratio. I own an FX-6300 at the moment which I want to replace with a Summit Ridge processor if the price and performance is right. Intel i7-4790K is an alternative which I might also consider if the price drop after the Zen release.
