To be honest, they are all on similar levels as so long as you know what you’re doing. The Yeti works just enough across all platforms easily and quickly. Easy and friendly controls will get you quite far in life. Read more

Seems crazy and stupid for 99.9% of us, but I’m sure there are some PC builder nerds out there with deep pockets who would rather dump money into a currently rare bleeding edge graphics card instead of putting that towards a supercar. I could picture Henry Cavill eyeballing this bid thinking....”if I sign a contract Read more

I’m very tempted to upgrade my current PC, but I’ve got a GTX 1070, and a small-ish case. So I’d definitely have to get a new motherboard, too. I ordered separate parts and assembled my current build. Read more

You are oversimplifying the human condition.

It can be true that someone has the open, adaptability traits in some aspects of their personality, yet also be stuck with irrational, stubborn personal hangups for specific things (many times stemming from negative experiences they’re not ready to heal from).

My first computer was a Packard-Bell running their tweaked version of Win95 with that bookcase-type shell over it... What a crap computer, and way too expensive.

Ha, good read. I gotta say, as more of a software person, my personal tech journey has certainly been more flexible. The funny thing is OSs/computers have a been a cycle for me. My mom was a teacher and used to bring her Mac home during summers and I would mess around on it. Through high school I was a Mac user by Read more
