  • Below was the concluding paragraph of an official blog post from AMD just last week. While it's nothing specific it does still (re)confirm that we should see the next gen sometime before the year ...
  • 2FA has little to do with securing your home network. Username/password credentials for services you use can be exposed if there is a data breach or you fall victim to a man-in-the middle attack. Y ...
  • For me personally, I have a desire to secure accounts with financial institutions and healthcare with a 2FA solution that isn't SMS-based. From what I've seen, most of the big names of these types ...
  • I'm curious if anyone here is using a non-SMS independent solution for two-factor/multi-factor authentication while they are using their home desktop PC. If so, which solution is it and what ...
  • @Sirandar Stars can actually exhibit color even to the unaided eye. There are a fair number of variables at play which may need to fall in your favor but the color is there under the right...

  • Ahh…I forgot about that. Thanks for mentioning it. Even with that in mind I would throw in the additional caveat of trying the sorting action in a store before purchasing. The “sliding tile” ...
  • You should probably be aware that iOS Photos.app sorts images based on their metadata and there is really nothing you can do about it. If you want to have your images displayed in an order of your ...
  • As a customer of the early creative plugin products that Topaz Labs became known for, it pains me to see what the company has become.
  • The Autonomous ErgoChair seems to be a popular choice in the “mid-range” price bracket. JayzTwoCents did a reasonably objective long term review of it a few months back. The comments for the video ...
  • Windows File Explorer itself is capable of doing work with metadata on certain files. I hesitate to say “make changes” or “modify” metadata because I honestly don’t know what the limitations are. I ...
  • I’m guessing when you mentioned “PCIE power socket on the m/b” that was more in the context of casual conversation than literal terminology. Regardless, I just wanted to mention that 8-pin ATX_12V ...
  • Objectively false. …and “your way” puts other people at risk by potentially making your computer into a vehicle for transmitting things it becomes infected with.
  • @ilza By what criteria do you assert that radio waves aren't light? Just because human eyes can't see them? Our eyes also can't see infrared and ultraviolet and yet we make images out of those...

  • Did you even bother to look into how it works before slinging the “dumb” and “over complicated” accusations? Here, you go: https://www.apple.com/euro/mac/shared/docs/Apple_T2_Security_Chip_Overview.pdf
  • My understanding is that the manner in which Apple's T2 security chip does storage encryption could not be done with an SSD in an M.2 connector or standard SATA bus. You may not like that or think ...
  • I don't think it will end up being as short as 2 or 3 years where macOS support is concerned. Apple has been holding true to their policy of "the most recent three" since basically the entire ...
  • I’ve not posted the list publically and don’t wish to do so. I’ve sent it to you via private message here though.
  • My somewhat foggy memory from IT days tells me that is typical behavior for something in the networking path not actually doing jumbo frames. Typically this would be the Ethernet switch that ...
  • I’ve also made up my mind that I will be moving off of the Apple platform. I’ve been compiling a list of things about it that bother me. No single one of them would be enough to make me want to ...
  • I would say the odds drastically favor Morris' suggestion that your difficulties are network related. Here are a couple of additional thoughts in the event networking improvements don't provide ...
