    Samsung makes Controller changes the right way

    Similar, the big difference to me is the Intel parts always seemed to get better - likely due to manufacturing process maturity, the products did not go backwards. G0 stepping was better than B3, but it came out after B3. Hard to complain about products getting better as time goes on...

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    I've soured on them somewhat. I had two 450 watt Seasonic Focus Gold +'s fail. No real power load on them, media center PCs without a dedicated video card so they had a pretty "easy" life, not cooped up in a closed box either so heat wasn't an issue. One at my home and one at my parents...

    Intel 12900K benchmarks leaked

    Meh, I'll stick with my 7700K. I did want to upgrade my MB/CPU/Video card but with the vendors chasing short term profits over prioritizing availability for long term customers, F em', I'll spend my money elsewhere.

    Right to repair executive order

    I'd replace the battery in my 3.5 year old phone and keep using it but i can't. Verizon att and tmo are shuting down their 3g networks at the end of the year. My phone uses 3g for calling and 4g for data. It doesn't support volte so my only choice is to get a damn new phone or not have voice...

    Domino's Delivery Robots

    Just what we need.. a slow ass vehicle that has no qualms about driving down the center median of the road. Oh, and the whole point of ordering delivery is so I don't have to go out in the rain etc. to get it. With this I'll still have to walk out to the curb and get soaked.... Thanks, but...

    EA Frostbite engine and FIFA 2021 source code allegedly stolen in hack

    Hope the hacker offers them the opportunity to not release the source code for a "micro transaction". Maybe after a few days they can shut down that version of the microtransaction software... and offer to sell them the newest version of source code hack (2.0!) with a new no release source code...

    Here's to hoping they square the escape velocity and sq. root the fuel needed for return calculation.

    Amazon sharing your internet without consent

    Ok. I'll give you a reason or two you don't want this.... Let's start here: Amazon isn't just intending on giving their devices access to make services better. They're opening it up to other device makers... and selling access to it. A...

    What are some Ubiquiti Unifi Alternatives? or Z's Ditching Unifi for Good Thread

    Have you tried updating your motherboard bios? I had issue with a 280X a ways back, updating the motherboard bios fixed it.

    New Router Recommendation

    I'm not hard set on UBNT and in fact I don't like how their newer stuff requires a cloud controller. I like running my own stuff inside my network. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll keep PFsense in mind, was hoping for something more prepackaged than rolling my own device, but if that's what...

    Networking with Ubiquiti

    I almost never reboot my ubi gear. The only firmware I update is for the edgerouter 3 from 2014 and that is because it's exposed to the Internet. The rest of the gear is still running the shipped firmware and an old controller. For an idea of how old some of it is, I have the original UAP pro...

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    If you think Gamestop's stock run has been because of increased demand for gaming and increased sales then you haven't been paying attention.
