    Best option for adding more sata ports

    If you plan to go really big, this is a good start. You can eventually get a retired SAS Expander board ( ex: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-IBM-46M0997-ServeRAID-Expansion-Adapter-16-Port-SAS-Expander-US-seller/142748488909?epid=18024864157&hash=item213c7914cd:g:JSoAAOSwD31ayGAc ) for about $30...

    How Intel's changing the future of power supplies with its ATX12VO spec

    Kinda like the BTX? I still have a BTX case. I could be wrong, but this might be Intel looking for something to patent so they can control the standard and/or make royalty off of it for every PC that uses it. It's the same tactic that Nvidia uses.

    AMD Drops Ryzen 3000 Pricing by up to $50

    This seems good, but the prices have been down on e-tailers for a bit, so don't expect a drastic change if you were recently looking. I looked last month and they were this low for the 3600/3700 stuff. It was surprising to me because the 3-series and 2-series were pretty close in price. Seems...

    CD Projekt Red Confirms a "The Witcher" Title Will Follow "Cyberpunk 2077"

    Doesn't surprise me after the success of the Netflix series, they'd be silly not to get a new title out.

    Cox wants to turn your home WiFi into a public hotspot.

    I'm surprised to hear they don't already do this. It's common these days for companies that lease you the hardware to have this sort of stuff enabled. I see "COX wifi" at businesses all the time. It's usually alongside that businesses WiFi .. always figured this is what is going on. It's not so...

    On paper GPU in Xbox Series X faster than RTX 2080 Super

    Can't argue with that, some games (to me) are more enjoyable on a console in front of my TV while sitting on the coach. Others are more enjoyable at the desk with a mouse & keyboard. And yes, my PC lives at my desk.

    EK has a new fan. It's fast, expensive, really thick and...

    I have a server 120mm Delta on my radiator, if you tune it correctly it's hardly noticable and allows for the computer to really pump air if it needs it. I rarely hear louder than a low hum unless I'm really pressing the machine on a hot day. So they have their purpose. The key is to make sure...

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    Is it? Google extended the P2/P2XL warranties because of all the launch issues, it should still be good for a few more months at least. https://www.androidauthority.com/google-pixel-2-xl-extended-warranty-810519/

    Google's product cancelling is killing their reputation.

    Wait, they're going to kill Google Play Music or just rebrand it as YouTube Music? The company runs like a person with ADHD. They fixate and develop something quickly, but get figgity and distracted, so they never finish it. Years ago they killed the Google Journal note taking app and...

    Apple's Reinvention as a Services Company Starts for Real Monday

    That Spotify v. Apple [EU anti-trust] complaint just got a tad bit more juicy. If what Spotify is claiming is true, I'd imagine there will now be more complaints from the companies they're going to compete against here.

    PS5 spec leak shows 8 core CPU and 24GB of RAM.

    20Gb of GDDR6? In a console that's not a ton of money? Right. These seem like wish list specs by someone who doesn't understand engineering to a price point.

    VRoamer Generates On-The-Fly VR Experiences While Walking Through Buildings

    With co-op, so we can all feel a tad better together as we move into shanties.

    Health Apps Sell User Data

    Seems the big players have made steps to be HIPAA compliant. https://healthitsecurity.com/news/how-does-hipaa-apply-to-wearable-health-technology Says it doesn't have to be HIPAA for "personal use." You'd think that the transfer of the data to servers outside of your control would make it...

    Intel Shows Off Graphics Card Designs at GDC 2019

    I kinda think Intel will target mid-tier and low-tier for their first generation. It's hard to leapfrog anyone on a 1st Gen product unless they're doing something completely unheard of. Especially given their foundry problems on smaller nodes. If they had a working/production 7nm, maybe they can...

    Obsidian Employee is Remaking Star Wars Dark Forces

    Does his page really say that? He's banking on them just removing the content and being done with it, but that statement removes any doubt that he knows he's violating IP, so if they sought compensation, it wouldn't go over well.
