  • Micron's 960GB BX500 SSD is just $119 at Newegg.  (Tom's Hardware)

    The link in the article says $199, but I checked and $119 is correct.

    This is a low-end drive, but it's 3D TLC flash, not cheaper QLC, and should work just fine in most applications.

    You can also get a 512GB Intel 760p - a pretty good M.2 NVMe drive - for
    $103
    .

  • Extinct Formosan clouded leopard spotted in Taiwan.  (Taiwan News)

    Spotted all over, in fact.

  • Micron says me too.  (Globe Newswire)

    The object in question being another 1TB microSD card.  Available Q2, no pricing yet.

  • Need 512GB of RAM on a mini-ITX motherboard?  Supermicro has you covered.  (Serve the Home)

    8 core Epyc 3251, four DIMM slots (two channels on the 3251 though), four SATA ports, four 1GbE ports (plus another one for the BMC), two USB 3.0 ports, VGA out, one M.2 slot, and a x16 PCIe slot.  66W system power at full load, which isn't bad at all.

1 I really need to remind myself to stop buying games for a month or two so I can get some more storage for them. 2TB seemed like so much space four or five years ago...

2 Re: the Micron drive.  It's DRAMless, which is why it's so cheap.  Meanwhile, Microcenter's selling a 1TB NVMe PCIe x4 drive for $144.99, and it's not an in-store-only price.  I just picked one up this weekend to put in my son's computer to replace a smaller SATA drive.  I love the Inland drives--they're not the fastest out there but they're plenty fast enough for home use, and they're dirt cheap.

3 "The place where the harmful event occurred must be intended not as the place where the infringing content was uploaded, but rather as the place where the damage is felt, that is where the victim resides or exercises its economic activity."
This strikes me as a pretty dangerous precedent.

4 That's a great price for an NVMe drive.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
