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

    NewEgg just burned me by declining to return/refund a damaged out of the box motherboard because I had slotted RAM into it before noticing the dent on the back plate.

    Destiny 2

    In a few hours from about 6-10pm I got from 965 to 1000 just doing the new public events and the new questline steps in Means to an End. So, now I'm basically caught up to all my friends or very near it. I'll probably have to grind a bit in the back end but it seems to have really allowed me to...

    Destiny 2

    Right? Totally missed out on this... hugely annoyed with the 'core-economy' right now, I'm 700 and always have near 0... so I never get to infuse/use the guns I want to try out at max level..

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" Launching July 7

    Very excited to see how these fare. They're probably a better fit for me than Intel's lineup right now with the higher core counts/price points in comparison.

    The Official MSI Radeon VII 16G Product Page Is Now Live

    It seems that part of the page is in relation to MSI's partnership with BlueStacks for playing Android/Mobile games on Windows... so ostensibly that's some mobile game? But I don't recognize it myself, and yeah, what a weird way to set up the shot...

    2018 Macbook Pro Refresh FINALLY!

    I'm pretty excited about the refresh, I'm probably picking up the 2.6/16/512/560x, going to swap out my servers for a simpler NAS solution and just... simplify stuff. Think I'll try and old out until Mojave ships on them natively.

    Surface Go - Thoughts? One way switch out of Windows - S - Awesome?

    It's definitely not a device I can imagine using, I've got a Surface Pro, it's interesting it's not built as a companion device to the existing surface line up such as the iPad is positioned to iPhone/Mac ecosystem.

    Looking for height adjustable desk

    Most of these standing desks are almost the same top and legs. I ended up with an L shape UpLift Eco model because of a coupon I had, but many other brands have almost the same legs, capacity, tops, etc..

    New Microcode for Broadwell and Haswell CPUs

    Lenovo updated my TS440 bios right away, turns on they pushed a bad update prior to that one and anyone attempting to upgrade from a certain bios revision ended up with bricked mobos... So, they (after much back and forth) sent out a tech with a replacement board free of charge. So...

    Phones At Apple Repair Center Are Calling 911 Multiple Times a Day

    With 'Call with Side Button' and 'Auto Call' enabled, it will call (with countdown) after 5 clicks of the power button (I mistakenly said 3), the volume button is not required for this. I just did it to verify. We were kinda both off on this one.

Which was punishing, but really made for some tense combat and strategic engagements, it's all run and gun and blow...
