    Office 365 Pro-Plus to Change Chrome's Default Search Engine to Bing

    I actually use bing probably 90% of the time, works great. Don't like that they would auto install a plugin to do the switch though.

    Nintendo Switch “Pro” GPU to be Based on Volta Architecture; 4K Support, Massive Performance Improve

    Switch is the only console worth owning IMO, switch + great gaming PC is pretty much all you need. Also, should note for those that only read title, assuming it cut off , it is NOT expected to get big updates according to this.

    Switch From Windows to Linux

    I've been running both since the Athlon 64 days. Can pretty much run most games on both at this point, granted at a speed difference. Pretty much switch back and forth depending on what applications I'm running.

    PSA: electric scooter rental can get you a DUI...

    Yes, you drive impaired you should get the punishment. The same goes for any powered vehicle. Bikes, I'm a little iffy on, yes if on a road, yes if on a sidewalk near a road, no if on a trail , but that tends to fall under park service things, and could be a felony anyway.

    Intel Recalls Quad Core Xeon CPU because of inadeqate stock cooler

    Oh yea, and even in that platinum style . My inside sales team screwed up and purchased me a USC C240 with a Xeon Platinum 8156 instead of the Gold version I wanted with a bunch more cores for a lot less money. Was pretty angry, but still did the job for the traffic generator for the Cable...

    Stadia not so good after all?

    1. No It isn't, just isn't exactly setup well yet , low latency docsis and some other things in the pipeline are making things interesting 2. Um, no.
