    Google Pixel Heads to T-Mobile

    If it wasn't for the battery dying, I'd still be using my original Pixel XL.. Got a refurb Pixel 3 XL for $500. So far it's a great phone. I thought I'd miss the analog port more than I am, but I bought a nice set of bluetooth headsets and all is well so far...

    MSI Betrays AMD's Socket AM4 Longevity Promise: No Zen2 for 300-series?

    I originally bought my X370 for my 1700X, and when I upgraded to the 2700X, I also bought a X470 mobo to go with it. I had planned on migrating the 2700X to the X370 for the wife, and get another motherboard for the 1700X to put in use for the kids machine. As long as I can use the 3xxx chips...

    According to TechPowerUp: MSI Betrays AMD's Socket AM4 Longevity Promise: No Zen2 for 300-series? I don't know about you, but if this is true, then that's some baby-back bullshit right there.

    Intel CPU Shortages Are Expected to Worsen in Q2

    My wife's rebuild will be an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X (coming from a 4650k). She won't be missing Intel in the slightest.. Then my kids will get rebuilds of the same 2600X's (replacing 2500k's). Again, they won't know the difference. Meanwhile I'll be saving a bundle.

    773 Million Records from Massive Data Breach Uploaded to Have I Been Pwned

    I've only got windows machines, and KeePass fits the bill for me. The DB file can be used by keepassXC if I choose to use it on my phone, so there's a plus there. I store the DB file on my NextCloud server, and it gets synced across all my machine.

    Ryzen 7 2700X $264.99 on Amazon

    No experiences with MSI boards, but I have used the ASUS products in the past. If you could muster up the additional $$ (about $30 additional), I'd get the ASUS TUF or ASUS Prime B450 mobos.

    Ryzen 7 2700X $264.99 on Amazon

    I am trying my hardest to NOT pull the trigger on this one. I have the 1700 already (OC'ed to a modest 3.75Ghz) and my system is fine right now. I just have to keep telling myself, "Zen 2... Zen 2... Hold off a little more..." Who am I kidding??? I'll probably convince the wife to let me...
