Razer Mouse Security Flaw Can Give Admin Access to Non-Admin PC Users
"There was a rather disturbing story about how this security researcher was able to take over. Someone's computer t- basically live plug in the right kind of mouse now. This case that happens to be a razor mouse And there was actually a steel series mouse. That turns out had the same problem. But the problem's not with these mice the problems with microsoft windows so. This is an article from. Tom's guide and realize that there was actually a previous article to this. But talk about both of them so chronologically. It's gonna feel weird but just hang with me in the article. Explain both of these cases as we go a day. After the world learned that razor gaming mice could be used to take over windows. Pc's there's news at the same trick. Works with steel series gaming keyboards. Mice headsets and even mouse pads as with the razor mice. It's actually the windows. Desktop application that causes the trouble. That's because it gets system wide privileges during installation without first asking for a system administrators permission. This flaw was discovered by security researcher. Lawrence amer who was inspired by the razor issue. A militias human using or mauer. That's already running on a windows ten. Pc and presumably this applies to windows. Eleven to as a low level user during the installation process can leverage this flock to gain full system control and cybersecurity terms. This is called privilege escalation or escalation elevation of privileges it's when processes or users gained powers. They shouldn't have however. This law isn't the fault of steel series or a razor. Those companies are just trying to get their software and stone quickly. This is instead of microsoft issue because windows isn't distinguishing between hardware drivers which normally don't need admin permissions to install and peripheral related desktop software which should need edmund permission microsoft needs to fix this privilege escalation situation before more problems like this pop up as they almost certainly will. So what can you do about this to avoid having your p. honed by gaming peripherals. Make sure you lock the screen of your workplace. Pc when you step away from your desk home. Bc's are under less threat from this kind of attack due to there being fewer potential users around. But you might want to shut off your pc when you've got a lot of company over to really make sure that this can't happen to your machine log.

Senate Panel Votes That Women Should Register for the Draft
"Alright, Here we go. Senate defense budget. Their bill would require women to register for the draft. Have you heard this one? Mr List? My Catholic Italian. Mr. Producer says. Oh, yeah, I don't blame him. Oh, he is right. This is from New York Post They Senate panels. Newly approved defense budget includes a provision requiring women to register for the draft. There were a number of Republican senators on this committee. Who either did not vote. They weren't present or voted for this, and we're trying to figure out which ones Now those of you forget about PC and all the rest of the crap those of you with a daughter. Those of you with a little girl. Do you want that little girl to register for the draft? Of course you don't. Changes to the draft, officially known as the Selective Service system, were made official in the National Defense Authorization Act. The annual military budget bill, which the Senate Armed Services Committee announced it had approved on Thursday. The N D. A amends the military Select Service Act to require the registration of women for selective service. The U. S military has not instituted a draft since the Vietnam War, and Pentagon officials have repeatedly said they intend to keep US armed forces. All voluntary star men between the ages of 18 and 25 are legally required. Be registered with the Selective service system.

The change was originally proposed by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jack Reed of Rhode Island
Will Valve's Steam Deck Really Change How PC Gamers Play Games?
"Week's show if he visited any gaming sites within the last few days, you've likely seen some sort of a headline talking about the valve steam deck, which is kind of like a Nintendo switch. But for PC games, Robbie was the stream that Robbie esteem Dick really changed the way PC gamers play games. Oh, that's a little bit of a loaded question. There may be well, let me just say my favorite headline that I saw since you mentioned that it was on a gaming websites. It was like a satire website like the Onion, but it said, uh, steam announces the new Nintendo switch pro. That's sort of what's happening. So Robbie tell us a little bit more about what the steam Deck even is to be good. Yeah, So I mean, look, if you're familiar with the switch, that's essentially what you're looking at, right there looking to create the same experience that you get from the Nintendo switch. But instead of you know, the switch games have to develop games specifically for that platform. Anything that's playable on computer should be playable on the steam deck. So you know, portable hand hand held claims to be able to run the latest triple A games, which, obviously not every Triple A game is going to be on the Nintendo switch. They say it completely your steam library anywhere. The doc is going to be sold separately. So if you wanna be able to play it on your T V, you will need to buy that. Whatever the price ends up being the deck is releasing in September and the cheapest version is going to be $399 now has a 70 screen. Same as what the switch does. Controllers don't detach, and some of the tech specs in it are actually comparable. To even the Xbox series X

Are Smart Phone Apps Ripping You Off?
"Both apple and google are being sued all over the place for how they run their stores. The app store the play store and what these two have been doing. Is they use their shared monopoly control over the ecosystem of phones to put up tollgates to rip you off a lot of cases. You're not even aware how much you're being ripped off their when you download an app that comes with this subscription or purchases. It's marked up an additional thirty percent for the toll that they have to pay the app. Developer has to pay to google or apple and this is so different than the era of the pc. The mac book the windows. Computer the chromebook that when you go to a website you use any function on your computer apple and google and the people who manufacturer chromebooks and all that they don't extract a toll and so the cost of anything you pay goes to who built that service now. This is a huge deal with apple self-dealing trying to rip people off on pandora and especially spotify to try to get iphone users to use apple music. It is true self-dealing where apple is able to grab all this money and google just as guilty in this area and microsoft who quietly has become one of the most valuable companies in the world again. I mean nobody really thinks about microsof- but microsoft has come up with a way to get around this on phones. That probably has google and apple. People furious where they've got a platform they've developed. Where on a phone. You'll be able to access things web-based that operate like apps and avoid the rip off thirty percent. Add on that you have to pay right now in the app store or in the play store and so no that with apps you're using that you're paying usually much more than you have to

So, but unfortunately, you still have to buy the instinct if you want all of the additional features and optimizations abor, some no hundreds look for a bios hack. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. How how is it that word like an hour end now? And we thought owes going to be a short show, and we're. Halfway through. Because we talked about sound cards for way too long. Her boasts. Yeah. And seeing very little I know I was saying very little I was trying to not go in depth. And it just kept talking. Right. Did. I don't know. Sure next podcast. More drivers exactly it's driver week at PC perspective, and we test drove actually haven't and saw these yet in video released the G force four eighteen dot ninety one driver. And this is important because it coincides with the battlefield five update which adds the L S support to the game. Then we've obviously at this point you've seen if you read our site or Harto CPA or any of the other sites out there. You've seen coverage of the L S.

"And they said that it was going to be an update was going to be made available available to the board partners. And was going to be released through a dot com, which that's nice. Well, of course, they have to because they're also one of the partners because they're selling the card themselves. So as soon as that update is available. I don't believe it's available yet. Not yet. Then I was going to go ahead and flash that new bios on this card and hope for the best. But. Other than it means. The the salt Peter lining to the pile of was that it resume chatting about earlier this week. The pro driver is actually gonna work with radio seven. So a bunch of stuff because that was one thing like even your benchmarking you saw as a workstation card. It's actually pretty damn good for the price. So by going the opposite way of what we call them the video. Who are specifically blocking any of that professional level stuff from the retail cards, all of a sudden India sort of you know, possibly by accident. Hopefully, not allowing you to some of the advantage of the radio on pro driver on your radio on seven, which is kinda neat. As long as they stick with it. And I hope they do it kind of hurts their current professional Elena cards, which hasn't really been refreshed yet. But it it it gives you a reason to buy it other than the gaming performance. We all know where it sits on the charts. I feel like I feel like you're just setting yourself up for more disappointment. Jeremy y'all I think I am because they clarified their stance on the professional drivers. It was reading is non tech who wrote this particular one that I saw there, basically, enabling the whole one driver thing..

"But if you have a need for this. If you're worried about taking your tax forms to the accountant, you don't want to leave him unencrypted, if you've got people if you're gonna company environment, you don't trust people to deal with offer encryption. It's something to take a look at. It's not the only product out there the market, but it's it's one of a handful that do this sort of keypad base. No Soffer required encryption and all things being equal. It's it's pretty good. He can get them now from Amazon in the the US prices ranged from sixty dollars two hundred and forty five again, not the best price, but you're paying you can't think about it. It's interesting paying for capacity you're paying for security. So if it's valuable to you in that context, it's worth taking a look has it compared to iron key haven't haven't used them. So I I don't know any a-. A firsthand impression. This is the first style. Of product like this that I actually ever got a chance to use hands on. So I don't have a better answer that I've had I I was given an iron key for my job. Three years ago. And yeah, it's it's all kind of software base you got installed iron key software. You gotta make sure you remember your decoding password. Otherwise, you just reform at the whole damn thing. But you have the price was high and the performance was. The perfect combination. Okay. Real quick. We'll look at the pulse. Fire corps is hyper mouse by took a look at last week and just to give you the basics. This is kind of it sits at the forty dollar price point. That's the full Emma Sarpi. And if you look at what hyper already offers, they have a f PS mouse, which is round thirty dollars enough PS pro which is sixty and then they're high end pulse. Fire surged I think is around sixty nine dollars has the three hundred sixty degree RGB lighting in the the higher end own run switches, but the in the pulse. Fire core. What you're basically getting is like an F PS that somewhere in between the F PF PS Perot. So it's like, maybe like the pro junior or an F PS. Plus, so if you the obstacle sensors a little bit higher and model that goes up to sixty two hundred DP, I. So the max speed is higher. The acceleration is the same. The pulling rates the same a lot of this is a little bit smaller product, though, it's actually much closer to the size of the surge mouse. So it's a it's a symmetrical design. I my biggest takeaways from this were it's very very light. Like, it's the the entry level mouse for corsair. They just you just review this one. Jim what is their entry level? The. Which they they had heart harpoon, though, they had the harpoon wired which they had on the market already. And then they just the Hyperion wireless. Okay. They also have the iron claw as well. At the same price point. I think okay. The harpoon I think is around eighty seven or eighty five grams sexually lighter than this. This is only eighty seven grams, which I'm used to a mouse, it's around one hundred. So this felt extremely light. And it has big pads on the bottom that are very smooth. And it was like you could throw this thing off your desk with you know, as you're moving around, very, very light. If you're okay with that actually found that the blend of the sensor that they use with the default resolution settings which they move up and increments of like four hundred or eight hundred you can set it anything you want in the software. This is one of those mice that is software enabled like you. Go into the software you can change the little logo to any color you want or turn off the color. You can change what any of the seven buttons are assigned to you can create macro 's and save them to the mouse any of the buttons. So it's very flexible and. The actual form of the is great like the exhilarated felt good. Like like, I said it to a lower sensitivity setting. I kept minded around twenty four hundred DP..

"Highrise music kind of replacing the need to have dedicated external devices, I think a lot of people who are really into high end audio. Does that take banana cable? Kibble? Oh, no. There's no there's no speaker outputs on this. Josh, let's set big thing in the middle headphone, Jack O, the big headphone, Jack, not the three and what three three point five millimeter. But the big. Big one. The big big one with the black around is the quarter inch headphone, Jack. Yeah. Okay. There's also a toss link out you can you can pass digital sound out of this. If you wanted to send sound to like your theater receiver like if you're using this as an HD PC, and you wanted to do five point one surround out but toss I mean, anybody who's into this probably knows like that's very limited like the obstacle. Coaxial a better connection if you wanna do higher bit rate sound because you're you're limited to digital. And I I'm pretty sure you cannot do on compressed multi channel sound you can do like unimpressed linear, PM stereo or two point one channel. But don't think you can do five point one on compressed on optical. You got to be coded. But yeah, it can. But eating writes, the you'll DVD standard six hundred and forty KP s per channel. Which is fine. It's like double the highest quality MP3.. But no, you're not doing like uncompetitive multi-channel pass through over optical, actually. Yeah. I don't know. I see in the chat asking what format the? Obstacle supports. I believe it's just whatever the stream is is just a straight passer. But I'll test that I don't I have not tried that yet I was focused just on the analog output out of this thing and the sound from this is fantastic. And I've I've used a bunch of different sound cards. I I've been using extra card from creative x fi HD USB cards, and I specifically bought it to do recording. It was going to digitize some of the few like actually all analog records that I have and make resins them in the analog to digital converter in that creative card is actually pretty good. But one of the reasons I chose that over something else was because I thought it had dual oscillators would have like clock generators for both forty four one in forty eight kilohertz strived like. Sample rates, and it physically does on the board. But it's not enabled and software. It's it's maddening. So I've seen a few of them. I know Seuss makes at least like their current high end. All you hearts have loss leaders at least one of them does. And this one does that was one of the things I was asking all these questions because this is like right up. My alley when I was E G A M like the engineer from audio. No, the UK like audio file hi-fi component company that helped design this was there. And basically the breakdown I got was that this is pretty much a USB three point oh card. It's it's bridge to expresses in. S media bridge chip in here, and it's essentially a high end external sound card four express. So it's it's kind of interesting..

"Friendly. Moving on how this was interesting that I I won't go too crazy into this. Because I've probably already talked more than I should on twitch. So if you wanna hear about ten more minutes of us talking about audio, Patrick, and I went into great links discussing audio with the introduction. They got into sound cards. We'd seen EV J teasing something new on Twitter. And it was like this coroner shot of something with a lens flare behind it. Like like, this is looks like a video card, maybe a cooler. I don't know. And then it sound car when they invited us out. And they said, you know, we're gonna unveil a new product category. And all I thought was please don't be gaming chairs. Please don't be gaming. Thank god. You don't want to carry that home? No, no. Thank god. It wasn't gaming shares. And not only wasn't given shares. It was something pretty cool. You know? I just thought of something. Jim just interrupt for moment the ultimate CAS swag gaming chairs just collapsed one down strap. It's your back in the walk around with it for the rest of the day. Although I gotta say after trekking around CS, my my first CBS getting one of those little motorized scooters if so if a company were to give me a little motorized scooter that I could get around in. That'd be pretty cool. I think you know, what not only that. But you know, I hope they are lines aren't listening to our podcast, but you know, one of those scooters would give preferential seating on the plane you'd be one of those passengers who needs a little extra time. I don't mean. Like, the rascal. I mean like you stand on the rascal or go home. No, the ones that kids use like that fold up, but. You know, have a little bit of a motor at him. And you kick like the one that Owen Wilson us in Zealander. Oh god. I don't remember seeing that has slowed. Of like, the razor scooter trays and like tricks with his raiders razor scooter like flipping around the base of it and stuff anyway. You know, what they anybody could offer that would piss ninety percent of the people off. That's the ES. Their own branded roller bag that when you walk around the show with all your stuff and the roller bag behind you and cutting people off and smashing into ankles. They put a stop to roller bags like the new security like I think two or three years ago. I don't see any roller bags anymore. Oh, well, that's be new to me. I saw some don't Mark. Thank you. I don't remember. If I saw them in the expo center if it was just between the casino like it's all just like shoulder bags stuff now anyway back to back sound cards. And this is I I love it at the same time. I'm like worried that they're not going to get a lot of traction necessarily at this price. This is a premium product. So he look at it from from two different sides. And there's another product we're talking about shortly. That's the same argument. It's from the audio file side. It's a bargain and for the consumer side while this is really expensive. So it's two hundred forty nine dollars. Did we say the name? Is the EV g a new sound renew audio sound and you knew audio. It's a discrete PC. I expressed sound crime sound card. It's PC. I expressed. Yes. Actually, technically internally it's USB device. That's bridge to be expressed. But it's it's. Like three D, you processing, it's just pure audio. It's pure two channel audio and one and I was loving it. And I was talking to founder who is a big audio file himself and has like a vintage system with like literal theater. Nineteen thirties theater. Speakers in his listening room with an all tubes at up and just just wonderful to talk to him. And to learn about his interest in audio and how this is translated into a new product category for them. But this is there's a company called audio note in the UK. And. They make high end audio stuff where their entry level, you know in. If you read like audio file, magazines and things are you go to any of these websites that sell the products, you know, that like a a a deal on an integrated amplifier from auto companies like two grand, and you're gonna be paying two to four thousand dollars for a pair bookshelf speakers, but they had essentially an entry level system for for them on display, and it was literally just being driven by a PC. Just a built P C J case running all EV J stuff, including the sound card and the sound was phenomenal. Of course. And it was like walking into a suite at like an audio show the way that it was kind of setup. And when you sat in the sweet spot by the nice stereo imaging and stuff. It reminds me of why positional audio like three D DSP stuff is it makes such a huge difference. When somebody enables. It because very often if you're using motherboard audio or a less expensive sound card. The sound is so narrow and flat in stereo that you pretty much have to enable some sort of spatial effect for it to sound really wide and really engaging. So this thing that I did some headphone demos listening to on the speaker. And it's it's it's really really good. It sounds like a component like you. I like you'd almost expect there to be a dedicated adak under the table, and it was just coming out of the back of the sound card. So I mean, you can read the review or not the review the preview on the site. The the little news post that I wrote up that shows some of the different pictures, they they have of like internal components and things like the really fancy capacitors and power regulation and stuff and it uses it uses a high end Dak it's an AK M AK forty four ninety three and high end op amps and all that good stuff. So if you're interested in like loss, Luis music or just really. Really high quality and the numbers like I wonder if these numbers are on their site somewhere, but they were showing those audio precision measurements that you'd seen like a stereo five magazine, they took these thing on the output and just crazy like singles noise ratio of over one hundred twenty with very very low distortion well beyond the audible spectrum like minus one hundred thirty db, virtually no inter modulating distortion just incredible numbers for even a a standalone Dak coming out of a sound card. So at that point, I'm thinking to fifty is a bargain, but for the average customer pricing out a build, this is a very very high end options focused. Yes. So for somebody like me they've found their market. But the I'm I'm weird. I admit it. Yeah. I faced that. And they mentioned too that this is an area because it's such a passion for the founder and for lots of the people in the company. This is just the start. Of what they wanna bring. They wanna focus on audio. So this is something that that is an introduction to a new area for them, which I think is very well, they could come out with a lower cost version. They could come up with the USB version. I mean, internally this already is USB. So that I'm sure we'll see down the road. It's just it's interesting VGA, they they weren't like a pioneer in like the add in board market. But when they came in. They started making compelling stuff VGA is one of those sorta Goto brands for for graphics cards, and motherboards and things. So it's it's interesting interesting to see them get into sound, but moving on Jim you met with riven networks. I believe. Yeah. The killer networking people, and they have I know in the past there. We've talked about kind of like the obviously there's ten gigabit, but then on copper you can go to like five two and a half. Yeah. So there's it depends on on the the controller that you're using. But there's there's ten and then there is controllers that can negotiate at two point five and five as well as ten and sometimes just a two point five, and that's what we've got here it. Okay. The killer brand has been around since the early two thousands. It was initially independent company that released a discrete card network card that you had mixed reviews. Some people say that didn't do anything some people said it had its own heat sink. Yes. And but the point was offload your network processing so that you can ensure that your computers CPU can is dedicated to the game. So you're not wasting any processing on your networking, and then that evolves made sense because this was a time. Mercy pews were single core. Yeah. And dual core was just coming out in what two thousand five two thousand six. And so they later on got acquired by Qualcomm, and they had some product releases with them, and they started to focus more on. The software side is still hardware solutions, obviously. But more about software and doing like U S, but gave gaming focus Culas making sure that the priority is is off your game packets. And then, but they've been gigabit they've been gigabit and they've had wireless products as well. And their wireless products actually use Intel harbor now. So it's not the the old days whereas like choose between Intel and one of these others. It's you know, you get killer software with into hardware. But this new new processor coming out, which is a wired Nick, where do you think? I'm sorry. I'm being accosted by a cat here.

"That twenty five hundred dollars steelcase. So it's kind of interesting like you have more options. And then you have the option of one that has memory 'cause I know the idea was just up and down, and we had one we those infiltrators had one at the old office. That was the studio desk was nikea basic up and down desk, and it was fine. It wasn't didn't feel sturdy as this one. And the other thing is is that it was loud and the motion was very. Abrupt rough I should say where motor sorta jerk. I it wasn't that bad. But it was just it wasn't. You felt it shake, and it was loud. You could hear it with this one. It's you can hear it. But it's very smooth. And it's got this kind of nice ramp. So very slowly ramps up to speed. And then when it comes to stop it slows down, it's just it feels like a premium product. But it's at a price point. That's at least the last time. I was shopping for this stuff those price point. That's that's well below the comparisons the competitive, I've looked at erga mic monitor stands with like keyboard. And mouse attachments that were more than this. So. Yeah, that world it gets very very very pricey when it's business oriented. Yeah. I've never liked those ones sort of tach -ment that that all and keyboard, go up they they never feel. I've tried a couple of I've never felt right? All right. Jeremy? Well, as a man once famously misquoted fool me once shame on me fool me twice won't get fooled. Again. I love I love that quote. It is it's still a brilliant one. So last year those who bought the large tech hub for the smart home. We're giving a wonderful Christmas surprise where they're told that Yar sercurity certificate expired, and we're not gonna bother to renew it. So you're gonna have to buy a new piece of hardware from us. This was not well received strangely enough. They did back off and offered a significant discount to anyone who was going to upgrade to the new harmony hub, which was released in twenty nineteen. Going back just a couple of days ago. They did it again. Similarly, anyone who is using their harmony hub with a variety of XM p p plug ins. So that they can control things that weren't Logitech products on our homes were suddenly locked out. And boom anything that wasn't specifically Logitech API and a logic product. You simply couldn't do it. And most people by smart home, screw around with it. That's why you get it. You can make strong bad lights from your light bulbs and do all sorts of fun things. So taking all that away was pretty nasty again they backed off for it quickly and said, okay. Well, we'll make it a beta program you have to opt into. And if you do all of your old stuff will work, which in a way is kind of nice because it means that people don't really know what they're doing Arkan often to they won't have to worry about nasty strangers installing it. It's just this is the second time that Logitech done this. So because I couldn't find a pick. I'm going with an anti pick. Which is honestly if you're looking for a smart home hub Logitech pretty much said that it's not the way to go. I love their mice. I just don't understand what they think they're doing. And I'm not looking forward to what happens next Christmas. So if you're shopping around I strongly suggest don't don't buy it. It's the best way to discourage them from doing. This is just not by their thing until they stop doing this sort of thing. All right. Well, okay. Something Josh, which you get what do I have?.

What else is on here and only okay security now almost this thing called this week in computer hardware, and listen to that.

I'd give it up computer hardware for probably three or four years at one point just working all the time. And I had started on like the socket a era.

"That's a nice upgrade path that puts Ray, tracing and more people's hands. Because that's where we're at. We're at that point. Now where this is the future. I mean, right. It's it's that's how long it takes to get. There is a question, but the more Ray tracing capable views. We can put the more GP's with dedicated Richardson, hardware, we can put into the market the better. I agree with you on being the future. Because if you think about the the story of three D, it's always seems like what we had available to us on the P C was a very very small subset of what was being used in like professional production for like three D visual effects. And then, of course, three d animated movies starting with Toy Story in the mid nineties. So Ray tracing is of course, used for big budget three d effects and movies. But it's like rendered over time. The idea of doing it in real time at home is kind of crazy still, and I I need a I probably see a lot more titles that support it before, you know, it really becomes a mainstream thing. But right now, we have battlefield five course is the one that everybody's using the test this we have a dedicated Ray tracing benchmark coming which will be nice. But what else is out there what besides battle? Five where are you race racing? Raider rarely does. Okay. No. It's already a pretty good-looking game to actually. That would be. All right. I'll have to look at that. There's so many things I'm gonna try try this OC scanner thing. And I wanted to try a bunch of, you know, special effects and things, but. In the brief time that I've served as editor chief so far I've had very little time to actually play with anything like I took those architects twenty eight and twenty seventy cards home. And I haven't been able to do anything with them yet. No shadow of the tomb raider for me, unless it's to staring at a benchmark. Yes, you will do much of that. This is your life now. And I know. It's it's cool to have hardware, but it's not as cool to actually, you know, test and write about it ad nauseam. Right. I just feel like I'm being punished because I got it home. And then it was like get ready for the holidays. And then it was the holidays. And now, it's the s I played no games. Of course. My do play games. I'm playing stuff that would run on probably a relatively powerful calculator. So like matrix mystique? Yeah. Yeah. I do want our audio listeners just briefly check out the video of this this episode and look at Sebastian setup. 'cause you if you've watched our episode video shows you've seen where he's in the same location. He has always been. And you wouldn't know it. It's it's those special effects. We're talking about. I'm actually being Ray traced right now in this three D rendered environment. Wow. So that's actually your basement now. Yeah. Wow. That's good. That's fast paint job. You got on there and new Ikya, desks? And well, those are the same ones I've had before this is what I what I've actually tried to do is recreate the office that I used to have before my son was born and kicked me out of my office is my wife insisted that he had his own room. Like why he's so small isn't need his own room. Well, we're seeing the basement basement. Yeah. Yeah. You could. Speaking of speaking of the basement little anecdote for everybody here. My son I found him down here yesterday. I lost him in my house. I have a very small house. It's seven hundred and eighty square feet. I couldn't find him. What's that? You've got a very small son to I do and I couldn't find him anywhere in the house. And I started to freak out the front door is still closed. Locked back door is closed. The I walked to the basement door was closed, and it has one of those like safety handle things on it. So we can open it. I couldn't find him. And I finally just went down to the basement, and he was just walking around. He had an iphone, and he was watching octa noughts, and he was just messing around with stuff down here..

"But as I continued reading it kind of hit me, this is arm with SM t that this is they've never done that before Dave from never arrived that as an option. So it it seems like this is actually kind of huge, especially if. Moving forward. They have any kind of presence or desire to kind of presence in like the desktop world. Like, I've I wonder how long it will take before this shows up in mobile, first of all or what systems will be able to take advantage of SMTP or if they already can I think it'd be that hard for Android. Yeah. I think they're already they can support us some tea, but you know, it's S T. It's a it's a strange kind of bird. It especially when you're talking mobile stuff because you've got these you know, kind of pipelines the clock up and down. And when you're doing S, M T type processing. Are kept at full utilization. Or is you know as as utilized they can. And so you don't get any of those kind of power savings that we see with mobile, so in Yellen theory, it could eat more our, and, you know, have a higher Durham lend below just because you're you have a greater utilization of the CPU's. And yeah, it it. It's going to really depend on the application and why they put it in with cars. Not such a big deal. Have an extra threads is a nice thing having greater utilizations find in the cell phone. I mean, that's why we've got big cores little cores. And if you add SM tea into the mix, it's going to make things a lot more complex. I mean, if you really think about it. So. It's nice to have that there. There's more tricks to get Nissim t to work well than than, you know, just kind of adding it in. I wonder if this is not really destined for mobile so much as it would be well, obviously, this is server servers servers and cars would be fine. Is this is I'm I'm looking for actual there's no actual power numbers here. This has to take up a lot more power than the abbot. A lot of power for arm doesn't even come close to minimum power for amd ear Intel. True. Anyhow, if you're interested. There's quite a bit of information about that arm has published a paper about this, apparently, which is the source that article so check it out just thought it was kind of interesting. You know, here we have our which is looking more and more just like a regular, you know, kind of processor option and not just a mobile low-power part. A very interesting conversation with to my cousins, which are financial advisers. They were for investors group and handle millions and millions of dollars. And they were actually asking me about arm because all of a sudden it's popping up on their investment portfolios as something you want to invest it. And then like what I've never heard of these guys before the hell are you talking about like? Like one of the biggest frost a company on the planet. You just don't know it and to try to explain how they're meeting like they're trying to get into the server industry by raising the amount of powered raw them power. They're producing versus everyone's favourite AMD and Intel which we've heard about trying to lower their power draw. And also, I think they're going to be looking into it because like this sort of product from arm really does make them attractive not just as techies, but you know, as companies looking to invest in the future. Although I'm not looking forward to trying to figure out which of the hundred and twenty processors in a big array was the one that died in I need to replace it. But it will die the whole rack. Point. Well, it's only forty bucks, but the hell rice. This is disposable cards at this point, you pull it out this it looks like a stick memory system. Whatever the traces on the curb word like that. That's kinda neat. Well, I don't have a clever transition, but another piece of interesting news that was actually came out a few days ago. Nvidia OC scanner this is an API that they released with their RT X series of cards that was already in you know, MSI after burner for automated over clocking. And no likes to let you overclock things. You're not supposed to this. They do and I have always appreciated it. But now apparently the latest beta it's a after burner. Four dot six dot zero beta ten. Offers full PASCAL support..

"And the problem is that you can't just get the two hundred and overclock it or can you which is the follow up story here as Jeremy posted. And Jeremy you had said what was it MSI? I wonder if this has already been corrected if if they've sent out a bios update. But if that bios version is still available, or if you know someone who was smart enough to grab it, right? You will be able to unlock these g processors, which is something that was not allowed before. And we kinda thought maybe this was based on the processor in the processor itself wasn't going to be able to let you overclock. But it's on one hundred percent proven that if you're running a before fifty or three fifty from MSI, you can update their latest bios, and all of a sudden you can unlock it and jump bumping that the fifty five dollar two hundred g that we were just talking about up to three point eight gigahertz base for free is a little bit nicer than pan to a, you know, an extra twenty bucks for bit more frequency, and we haven't seen the two forty or the to twenty. So we don't know if they can get a little bit better as well. So I mean, if you see the bios grab it hold onto it, you might need it or friend might need it. So is this multiplier unlocking you're talking about? About changing the multiplier and getting the free overclock that way or is this like brace basically Quincy like based clock. It was. Well, I mean, it looks like it's multiplier. They didn't get show. Interesting is I was hoping they'd show pictures of the of the bios and they dent, right? They're using the MSI click by all center face, but you can see there. The ratio is what they were changing. Okay. So the assumption is that's what it is. It's not that you can actually change your the actual bus beat on it. That's odd. Because you'd think well if it's multiplier locked that's at the CPU level. You think reminds me of core unlocking, which was my favorite thing about AMD processors back in two thousand eight nine pencil required. Well, even what was it. I bought a Semper on one forty. I think it was the one just a single core like thirty thirty five dollar processor. And you could unlock the second corps, and then overclock the snot out of it. So I was running at close to four gigahertz pretty stable my windows XP machine with two cores. But yeah. Well, this this didn't something like this happened on Intel side a few years ago to. Remember the ships. That's one one motherboard had an update that accidentally enabled it. And it was I think this was back in the days when they were going to try and charge you for that little unlock card to let you overclock your CPU by a little bit. I think it was. I mean, it was something to do with like it was a non K part. But. On this particular board, and with that particular firm where it could be unlocked, and it wasn't that let me it was within the last five years. I think. But yeah. So. Not official though don't count on it being they're getting if you can't. It. But yeah, if you can hey free free speed on a fifty five dollar processor pen in the two hundred Gs the only one available currently so simulate that two forty right now. Another bit of kind of a blast from the past was Dell which this is this news is a week old now, but del without an IPO is now once again a publicly traded company. It was kind of interesting weird laws down there. Yeah. This scenario apparently something about their holdings in VM ware and through this buy back or able to. I won't even pretend to understand exactly how this happened, but it did happen, and they opened up at forty six dollars a share. Rough time of year to do that pretty volatile lately. Year for all the people used to be stockholders until Michael Dell bought it back and suddenly alley. Let's invest in this again. Well, hey, your investment would pay off because they're currently trading at forty seven dollars and twelve oaks..

"Dollars. You can check it out over at the wounding dot IO website, hooting, his w OT. I n g. Deeply they're not calling the follow up the tooting. It has some interesting the possibilities. I guess analog. You would think that via software you could have very fine control over actuation point. Maybe since they're measuring the the reflections measuring the height somehow. I mean, you can have it is, you know, instead of you know, like in racing games. You can be an actual keyboard racer because you'd have control over breaking in exceleron. Yet, you you can't adjust the actuation point. But the total travel distance is very minimal. So in any said, you get used to it. But if you're gonna if you switch between keyboards often, or your I sit down to it, you you you have to really have a feather touch in order to truly take advantage of the of the space, you have to depress the key in and get that that level of of input that you're looking for. Yeah. I mean, I've been married for twenty years. And there's a reason for that. Oh, terrible. Yeah. We know what isn't terrible sheep AMD processors. AMD announce availability of their Athlon processor with Vega graphics API users and based the two hundred g e series, although thus far only the two hundred GE is for sale anywhere that I've seen actually on new right now looking and I don't see the two twenty or. Just the two hundred. But what these are. You're basically getting dual core for thread parts with. I think these all have the same graphics core. They'll have a three see you graphic score running at one gigahertz. These are all thirty five watt parts. So what these kind of looked like to me is this this is in at thirty five watts. That's like high end mobile where you know, Intel's high end mobile stuff goes up to forty five watts. I think the h k or is it H Q parts. So this these almost could be notebook parts or small form factor. PC parts many PC parts if they're actively cooled, but certainly for some sort of lower power application, it provides some interesting possibilities in the market, depending on exactly what form factor, you're going. After what you're building with it. But. That's a nice little. It's a nice little option for only fifty five bucks for two hundred GE. And of course, you know, when they when they start, you know, pumping these things out, and it's going to be cheaper three point two gigahertz is not exactly extremely fast. But for the kind of application, you're looking at it's still going to be of decent gaming processor. It's. You know going to have graphics on there. I mean, if you want to build a little machine for mom and dad, then this is certainly something you can do and be extremely inexpensive. And I, but you know, still snappy. It'll to still have good three d capabilities and support you get up there with the two twenty in to forty. Yeah. Yeah. And the only difference is just the clasping team up was he goes up a little bit. You're paying ten bucks for two hundred megahertz base..

"Switching between a controller and a keyboard. Most AAA titles do but you may encounter some. That don't also in terms of the the what you get it's one hundred sixty dollars and the keys that come with. It. Chris noted are not great key caps. They're single single shot a thin plastic. You can buy better. He's so there's an option for an upgrade there. But you're going to have to factor factor in that cost because you're probably not going to be happy at this price point with the keys. You get. Another another option is you can you can customize RGB and stuff, but they don't have like per game macro support yet. And they've been promising that for I think he said over a year, but they have at least to get. So you're not for a gaming because this kind of the feature set here is like hardcore gamer and. You'd think that they would kind of support that stuff. The macro stuff is is pretty pretty crucial to that market. But they don't have it. So that's going to be a limitation there as well. Again. It's not that they couldn't implement it. It's it would be a software thing. But they haven't gotten around to getting that software out in there already promoting the replacement through this the wounding to but overall he says he likes it. It's if you're missing that analog input that that sort of precise gradual ramping of your your movement and games. Check it out. It's a ten kilos keyboard one hundred sixty dollars, but because of its limitations because it doesn't work with every game because it is ten kilos you might want the number pad, and because the lack of macaroni and stuff you may want to skip on this one. But but so it didn't win an award or anything, but it's something to consider. It's a very unique and promising development in the keyboard market, which has been pretty stale in terms of like there's lots of features lots of. Software, all kinds RGB's, but the basic here's how you input through a computer earth or keyboard into into a computer that hasn't changed in years and decades, and this is a big shift there. So this is the first step not perfect. But something to check out and that's the wounding one analog optical keyboard one hundred sixty.
