Intel Core i9 vs AMD Threadripper

Jul 18, 2017 by Paul White

Finally AMD and Intel are again competing for consumers business.  Intel has released its Core i9, which was previously its Extreme Edition CPUs, and AMD is about to release Threadripper its scaled out version of Ryzen.  My First generation Intel I7 no longer cuts it, especially after upgrading to windows 10.  Even upgrading the air cooler and overclocking it from 2.6 Ghz to 3.6 Ghz is not enough.  Editing 4K video is near impossible.  So I am ready to build a new workstation.  I have had my eye on the latest from AMD and Intel, and I think I have mde up my mind.

How Tough is the DJI Mavic Pro Drone

Jun 8, 2017 by Paul White

I recently bought a DJI Mavic Pro Drone.  Plan was to use it for Ariel Photography and video for both personal and commercial purposes.  Yesterday I was testing some of the advanced fetures like tracking, and I ended up running my drone into a light pole.  After that all I can say is Mavic Pro is one tough drone.

Nike Air Max 2016 Covered by Warranty

Nike Air Max 2016 Covered by Warranty

Feb 17, 2017 by Paul White

I bought a pair of Nike Air Max 2016 a little under 2 years ago.  They have been great, with the exception of the Fly Wires.  Which seem to have a design flaw, causing them to break.  To me this didn't seem like normal wear and tear, So I did some research and found that Nike does have a warranty on their shoes.

Jan 25, 2017 by Paul White

With Trump now in charge.  Liberals are attacking him from every angle.  One issue that Liberals often bring up is womens access to healthcare.   It would see that when all these liberals were getting their Liberal Arts degrees, a course on economics was never a pre-requisite to graduate.  So let me explain the basics of economics and how it relates to healthcare.

Does Google Fi Cell Phone Service work in Lincoln Nebraska

Nov 17, 2016 by Paul White

Before the move I had been a relatively happy customer with T-Mobile.  Unlimited everything, though it was costing me about $90 / month.  Unfortunately T-Mobile doesn't have towers in Nebraska, so the coverage sucks!. So I have decided to give Google Fi a try.

Beware of Paypal Scams when selling on Craigslist

Oct 17, 2016 by Paul White

I have always been skeptical of transactions through sites like Craigslist.  Recently I posted a bunch of items for sale.  It wasn't long before the scammers started to contact me.  However I have worked in computers for a long time, and seen enough spam emails, virus infections, and fraud attempts to spot these from a mile away.  So before you sell to someone on craigslist, check if your conversation was going like this, and if it was avoid it.
