I've been eyeing this one for a while. At $1200, it ain't cheap, but the specs are pretty impressive. However, its screen is only 60hz. For that price, it should have at least 90hz, if not 120hz. I've never owned a Sony smart phone and doubt this will be my first...

Right now, you can get this excellent mouse from Amazon for $20 off the regular price of $79.99. This is the wired version. I have the wireless Viper and love it. I just bought one of these wired Vipers as a spare...
I've been using a Crown Audio power amp to drive my KEF LS50 speakers, but 2 of these amps have died in the last 6 months. I'm thinking I should look for something other than pro audio gear.
I'd like to find something in the 200-250wpc range. Just a 2-channel, stereo power amp. No more D...
This is a very under-rated 3rd person shooter. Well worth the $6 bux.
I don't watch GOT, but, as my namesake suggests, I'm a huge fan of the ME trilogy. Forbes posted this piece, earlier today, that likened last night's GOT episode to ME3's Citadel DLC.

I hate soundbars and ain't interested in anything like a home theater. Found this Fluance Ai60 powered speaker system and gave it a shot. I'm very pleased with the sound and simplicity.
Fluance Ai60 $299
I was a skeptic of OLED burn-in until today. It took Tiger's red Nike shirt to convince me that burn-in ain't no joke. My LG OLED B7A is only about 1.5 years old. I run the pixel refresher every night, but obviously it didn't protect my screen. :(
Amazon has a pretty good deal on the Bloody B930 tenkeyless keyboard. Bloody uses optical switches instead of mechanical. Keyboard is normally $139.95, but Amazon has a $45 discount running.
At long last, iMessage is now available for Android. The app is called AirMessage. It requires a Mac computer but looks pretty good.
According to this article on CNET, Samsung has a 43" QLED on the way! It's the Q60R. :)
I got this desk pad from Amazon, today. It's thin artificial leather, measuring about 31"x15". It's the smoothest mouse surface I've ever used that also provides good control. Not bad for just $16 bux. Available in several colors besides brown...
Found this article that claimed the Pixel 4 may be sans notch and chin. If true, it could be the best selling Android phone of the year, depending on its price, of course. I certainly would list my 3XL on Swappa and grab a 4XL if it's anything like this...
Work has given me a choice between a new Dell XPS 13" or Surface Pro. Budget limit is $1500. I can get a pretty damn nice model of either one at that price. Anyone go from a laptop to Surface? Pros/cons? I need to make a decision by the end of this week.
Any/all comments appreciated!
According to this piece in Forbes, answer is yes.
Massdrop began shipping their new CTRL keyboard, last week. Got mine, yesterday. On the positive side, the build quality is very solid. Keyboard has a good weight to it. I love the magnetic feet. Nice touch!
Sadly, things go downhill from there. The aluminum body is a very light shade of...
Two days after being dropped in the ocean, a scuba diver found an iPhone when an incoming text lit up the still working display.
I've received quite a few messages/comments about my Emotiva Control Freak volume knob. It's one of the best audio purchases I've ever made, but Emotiva discontinued it several years ago. I've noticed some hissing and skipping with my CF, as of late. From what I've read, this usually means the...
