    Major ouch. At Frys they used to tape actual different processors on the display board behind the enclosed glass with prices next to it. One Athlon socket A processor was on the surface inside. It must have fell off the board. I asked an old Asian lady employee if I could buy that hoping to...

    $65M? I googled that and found out. This is the man who gambled Frys piggy bank dry: Ausaf Umar Siddiqui. Loved that Roseville Fry's train theme!

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    Going thru my tech bookmarks and Hard|OCP's layout is best than all and is easier on my eyes. Black background, some red trims here and there makes a great layout. Most other tech sites are too blight white. Guru3D has a nice blue background, also easy on eyes. My next bookmark to read is...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    Why impose 112 mph on a Volvo capable of doing 150+ mph? Why not make a Volvo 112 Sunday Edition for those who don't mind buying that?
