    Gateway 14.1 and 15.6 1080p notebooks for $99 and $139

    I have good memories of that phonebook. Bought a lot of good stuff out of it but also a lot of junk. That was the wild west.

    Do you remember your history of smartphones?

    I keep phones for a long time, so here’s them all, smart or not: Uniden CP4600 (mid ‘90s) Uniden PCD2000 (late ‘90s) A few Nokia candy bar phones. Don’t remember the models but what everyone had back then Motorola Razr v3 Can’t remember what came between here iPhone 3G Motorola Atrix Galaxy S4...

    Digitaltrends Top 6 Nvidia Cards of All Time List. Agree or disagree?

    Fully agree with the 8800GTX. Coming to that from a 7900 GT, I don’t think I ever had such a quantum leap in gaming ability from a one-generation upgrade before or since. Closest would be going from an ATi Rage Pro to a GeForce 2 Ultra, but those were very early generation cards. The others are...

    Yes. Looks like an AK-12 to me, which is the current Russian army rifle.

    Rare Apple-1 Computer Signed by Steve Wozniak Up for Auction

    Didn’t have an Apple-1, but definitely did have that Panasonic tape recorder when I was a kid. In fact I think everyone I knew had that tape recorder.

    Google replaced the White Noise on Nest speakers so people can't sleep

    Somewhere along the line someone confused white noise generators with white trash generators, then it was turtles all the way down after that. A bitch of a sitch!

    Google replaced the White Noise on Nest speakers so people can't sleep

    Getting some asleep assistance via background sounds was why the universe invented Bob Ross. I had 75% of everything he ever did downloaded a decade before it became available on YouTube, for that reason.

    Earth's Black Box Climate Warning Box for Future Generations to Study.

    Same! Mine had every issue since 1974, and sold it at an estate sale a few years back without telling me. Probably 15 linear feet of NGs.

    Yup. For equal graphics power these thin laptops are significantly louder than a desktop. The price we pay for portability.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Good news! I switched to Big Picture exactly once, fooled around a bit with a confused look on my face, and switched it back immediately. Glad the Deck UI will be more like a variation of the regular Steam UI.

    RTX 30 Laptops

    Looks like a nice one. Wish I had your CPU but wasn’t an option with AW at the time I bought. Having fully moved to mobile pc gaming due to life in the last year, I’m really impressed with the mobile 3080 performance. It’s somewhere around 2080 Super/3070-ish performance in a reasonably sized...

    RTX A2000 announced - fastest low-profile GPU

    Is there really that much demand for SFF design workstations? I mean, I guess there is or NV wouldn’t make these, and if nothing else NV knows their marketing. My question just comes from the fact that I’ve never seen anyone use one. All the designers I’ve worked with that had a need for Quadro...

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

    For me, this as well. I haven’t bought a non-Seasonic PSU in the better part of the decade. Not that there aren’t probably units that are just as good depending on the model, but I have never had one of these fail on me, and the oldest still running is 11 years old now.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    That would be amazing. I normally “wait and see” with this type of thing, but these ideas have me abnormally excited. I was 10:04 order time and my availability says December 2021 now as well. Seems like about 5 min after open was the cutoff time for December availability.

    My order for a 512 went through at 12:04 Central, or 4 min after it opened, and still just says Reserved on Fri, July 16th with no expected date. Hope that’s a good thing.

    How do they look?

    Nice rig! If that’s your computer audio I’d love to see your home audio! I’ve always loved KEF as well but my last ones were 104/2s from 1989. My audio-fu has grown weak.

    240W Extended Power Range USB C

    “ could theoretically charge an full-fat Alienware m17 gaming laptop over USB-C” Nope. Not till we get 330W USB-C. The Verge’s lack of basic research remains amusing. I would love this as well. I don’t see us getting away from the 3 lb power bricks for high performance laptops anytime...
