    Zephyr Gaming Mouse

    I wish they had a variant that was slightly larger and incorporated a slightly larger fan too (30-40mm). My relative with hyperhidrosis also has basketball player hands (long fingers and wide palm) and this would have otherwise been perfect to help cut down how hot his hands get just after 20...

    Samsung Joins Arm Foray, Eyes Stakes Instead of Buyout

    In a related bit of news, the Co-Founder of ARM doesn't like the idea of NVIDIA potentially buying ARM and under American control, and commented that at least under SoftBank, they were at least neutral. He'd rather have the UK buy back ARM and make it central to making the UK a powerhouse.

    NVIDIA in Advanced Talks to Acquire Arm from SoftBank

    From Nikkei, seems like SoftBank intends to keep majority stake in ARM even if they sell it, probably taking a controlling stake in NVIDIA or whomever they sell the IP to, effectively owning both.

    Steam Updates Pricing Restrictions to Combat VPN-based Exploitation of Regional Pricing

    I fail to see how this will stop middlemen (like "forum buddies" or "internet pals") from just buying the game on someone else's behalf, or buying "cheaper" off some ebay seller willing to gift the game over.

    ENERMAX Launches MarbleShell RGB Computer Case Series

    Marble would make for a nice minimalist accent when paired with all the boring black or white square edged cases, similar to those cases with a bit of wood or wood-like finish and texture. Granted, it'd be heavy, even if it was just a thin, half-cm thick layer.

    Electronic Arts Reports Strong Q1 FY21 Financial Results

    But are they still in the top 5 of the most hated companies ever?

    Konami Joins the Desktop PC Market with 3 New Models

    Not for 1000; that's InWin LE Case territory. For 150 or so after all import duties and the like. Similar to some of the region-specific and sometimes novelty cases one could find on Ebay or Aliexpress or TaoBao that usually for about that much for a similar ATX case after S&H + taxes.

    Konami Joins the Desktop PC Market with 3 New Models

    If they just sold the case, I'd definitely buy it.

    SoftBank Reportedly Considering Selling Arm Holdings

    I suspect this was just unofficial watercooler talk; like they've discussed it just for financial planning reasons but haven't seriously considered doing so. ARM is currently a hot bit of IP to own, what with Amazon, Google, Apple and others going all-in on ARM-based chips for their respective...

    Chieftec Announces CM-25B-OP Case from the Classic Series

    The only thing this case needs is a 120mm fan mount on the side panel and maybe being a bit wider to accommodate the 120mm and a simple GPU.

    Chinese Manufacturer ProArtist Solves AM4 CPU Mounting Problem with New IFE2 Bracket

    I could see Noctua probably being one of the first to do this; if not AMD themselves by modifying the plastic, stock cooler retention "bars" to also include a hold down bracket (or setting a separate CPU holding bracket below the two bars, so that the cpu holding bracket can be reused with other...

    CORSAIR Launches iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers

    You know, it would be hilarious if these could be used with VR tracking tech. Don your headphones, grab the stand, and it becomes a weapon in your VR game.

    Microsoft Moves to Permanently Close Physical Shops

    I saw a few MS shops at the malls in Dallas and Houston while visiting relatives way before COVID hit. They each had a Kinect Xbox unit set up to a flatscreen that was back to back with another inside a display column outside the shop. One Xbox was always Dance Central, and the other was some...

    DeepCool Launches New Unique X-Frame MF120 GT A-RGB Fans

    I wonder what took them so long to bring these to market, despite having been teased alongside the "frameless" variants and also having marketed them with the poorly-named Fryzen cooler. That aside, I'm a bit disappointed these (or their Frameless ones) don't come in 140mm; I have a case that...
