      They clarified their position after the announcement.

      “While it was announced today that the POTATO HEAD brand name & logo are dropping the ‘MR.’ I yam proud to confirm that MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD aren’t going anywhere and will remain MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD,”

      While I generally don't like brands attempting to capitalize on hot-button social issues to sell more units, their spud based pun took the wind out of my sails.

      I'm not going to applaud this move, but I  cant poo-poo it either, as I think they navigated this one correctly given the context. 

  3. Why the hell does Microsoft not have a PDF reader/editor?

      Then they used old Edge.

      that one was decent, especially highlighting feature.

      I couldn't use that one at all. It didn't handle secure PDFs very well and that's 90% of what I handle.

  4. The simps have raided Techlinked.

  6. Uhh think you got a typo there bud. You should go for the Ryzen 9 3900 instead of the 5600x since it has double the cores which would significantly speed up your workload.
  7. Supposed to be Steve Job’s 66th birthday today.

    R.I.P

  8. I found the best video on Instagram. 151724010_758584131700706_2545688569960924134_n.mp4
  9. The Frostflow will perform better and it is free aswell.
  10. Its a program that you can run on your PC that runs calculations to help the scientific community find cures for diseases, similar to bitcoin mining but instead of getting money you help the world.
  11. Later on in the video Mr. Boom explains some DIY methods.

      probably the Radeon card. my MacBook Pro did that too but for the Mac there is a pretty easy software fix, maybe you can do that for your laptop too...

      Oh nope. What I think happened is that one of the mosfets responsible for power distribution on the mobo blew up due to overcurrent. The battery being so old had some issues and when I tried to power it on after a year it did not like it. I checked the suspected component with a multimeter and yes it was shorted. I could replace it but I don't think it would be worth it.

      ah ok interesting... i mean that laptop is worth saving, a quadcore i7 is still very nice. even if you have no use for it you could give it away or something... 

  13. If the program does not know the vendor of the chip it automatically defaults to GenuineIntel.
  14. That sounds like ransomware. AFAIK you cannot get the data back unless you pay the ransom which is very sketch or unless you have a backup.
