    Popular video conference software zoom found to contain lots of vulnerabilities.

    Hope they can fix all the problems with this increased scrutiny. Microsoft Teams is the other popular one, but not many other options.

    AMD Processors No Longer Crippled with Latest MATLAB MKL Update

    Hotfixes for regular software like Chrome? Push one update every day no problem. Hotfixes for Nuclear Reactors? Make sure they check every damn interaction before pushing the updates through.

    Prices will come down in due time - not long ago we were struggling for cheap 1tb drives. Samsung S9 launch price was ~$720, now you can get it for $430 in Newegg - how is that costing more? S10 prices are also dropping.

    What are the PCIe-1 connectors?

    Budget gamer for new PC gamer

    AMD Flaws, Fastforwarding to 2020: Any concerns with Zen 2 / x570 Chipsets?

    Intel to Announce Advanced Cooling Solutions for Project Athena Laptops

    Will be interesting to see how this matures. Ultrabooks took some time to become competent, I don't expect Project Athena to be a hit immediately.
