Excellent coverage of AMD and Intel NVMe RAID stories.
If you get a chance, please ask AMD if they plan to
support NVMe RAID on their EPYC platforms e.g.
Gigabyte MZ31-AR0 (rev. 1.0).

And, you already know how much we appreciate
your superior testing and reporting of
these NVMe RAID developments.

Pixel/Google section seemed to be missing anyone who actually watched the announcement.

The Clip camera that everyone was talking about is not internet connected in anyway so worrying about it getting sent out completely missed the entire section Google had on their focus of privacy and security around this device. It looks like a camera so people know what it is and has a light so you know when it's recording. It does video, changing focus to where that action is via use of AI, and takes pictures as well when the AI believes something worth getting a snippet of is occurring, we'll have to see how well that part works.

Yes the Pixel dropped the headphone jack, but are including a dongle in the box. I was one of those people who laughed at Apple for dropping it till I read a tech piece where someone explained why. USB-C has the necessary connection and you save a lot of extra space on the internals of the phone allowing for any number of extra internal components including more space that could be used for a bigger battery.

Hey Scott, what do you think of this for Blender 3D rendering.

"Slipping under our radar back during the recent Linaro Connect event in San Francisco was word that Linaro, Gigabyte, and Socionext are coming together to produce an interesting microATX-based, 24 x ARM Cortex-A53 desktop / developer box.

The three companies are working together to build this 24 core ARMv8 box using Socionext's 5 Watt SynQuacer SC2A11 SoC. GIGABYTE manufacturing the board is building it to 96Boards' Enterprise specifications. This micro-ATX motherboard will also have replaceable DIMM memory modules and PCI Express slots..."(1)
