Mozilla has announced that the new version of Firefox will introduce Total Cookie, which is a feature that will lock cookies to the site that created them and prevent other sites from seeing what you are doing elsewhere.

  4. NVIDIA announced the RTX 3060 GPU quite awhile ago but we now have a MSRP and a release date. The card is going to drop on February 25th (one week from today) and will be suggested to be listed at $329. This card is designed to be a “budget” card in the 3000 series along side the more expensive, and more powerful, 3070, 3080, and 3090 cards. If you did not know, NVIDIA GPUs currently uses the first two numbers (30) for the series and the last two numbers (60) as essentially a performance mark with the higher number being more powerful. Also the Ti versions are more capable than the non-Ti

  6. The NZXT H1 is a premium small form-factor PC case that has been in the highlight as of late for shipping with a faulty PCIe riser cable that has exposed wiring touching the metal screw used to attach the cable to the case. The riser was designed poorly and lacked reinforcement where the screw is inserted, which allowed the screw to break down the board material and come in direct contract with the internal wiring and create a new circuit. This screw would then heat up and cause a fire. NZXT stated this was an extremely low probability issue and shipped out nylon screws to customers to
  7. The latest Bloomberg Innovation Index report lists South Korea as the world’s leader in innovation after suppressing Germany, which was the last leader and has now fallen to 4th place. South Korea leading in innovation is not uncommon as they have led seven out of the nine years that Bloomberg has published the index. Much of the data used in the index was obtained before the COVID-19 pandemic, although the chart does seem to indicate that the top innovators have done the best at handling the pandemic. The Index does note that China received a large boost due to Wuhan’s impressive abili

  10. During the current pandemic in-person press conferences and major release events, not to mention major tech events, have all but come to a halt. Microsoft is planning to deal with these hurdles by separating their large events, that often have numerous types of product launches and announcements, into smaller focused virtual events. Microsoft plans to separate it's events into individually focused virtual announcements with more individualized categories such as cloud computing, gaming, or Windows. It also sounds like the company might be having more corporate based events that focus on secu

  12. Plex, one of (if not the most popular) home media streaming systems, has announced the release of Plex Arcade which will allow users to stream games via their Plex account and applications. The streaming app provider has stated that it will utilize Parsec to let users stream retro titles from a host computer to a variety of different platforms. This is very similar to Plex’s standard home theater streaming for movies and TV shows but will require a subscription cost due to the utilization of Parsec and cloud partnerships. So far it has been reported that Amazon Fire TV, Android and Androi
