An update on the somewhat-widespread RTX 2080 failures reported in very late October. Initial findings may indicate sub-par or poorly-contacting/conducting thermal padding on some cards.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

With the Note 9 released, here is an article detailing the newest device. The blue looks ok, but the pink-purple really pops! I wonder why Samsung is migrating away from white phones in the US - not even black was an option over here for this model.

The first computer I was old enough and cared to know the specs on was my father's work laptop circa 1996; it sported a whopping 200 MB hard drive. Now we have phones that have internal storage of 512 GB and are expandable to 1 TB. It's amazing the speed at which tech advances!

I forget what chip my first build had, but my second was a 90 micron P4. It's amazing how far the technology has come in just 12-14 years.

In this article, Intel explains their cpu timeline and hardware features for the upcoming years.
