Windows 10 Best Laptops To Buy

Windows 10 is awesome... but don't buy a new Windows 10 laptop right now because there are new processors coming that will be worth the wait.  A desktop is a different story.  Those are bigger and usually contain bigger and better hardware to begin with but since laptops are so compact and contain a battery you want to maximize performance and battery life.

Could this be Fallout 4? No. -- Golden Ratio Tech Solutions. Laptop and Computer Repair. Made Simple in Ottawa.

Anyone been waiting for the next Fallout game? Here it is…

Unfortunately for fans of the Fallout series it is not Fallout 4... yet!  Bethesda has released an addicting mobile game for your time-wasting pleasure.  It's interesting to see something new after so many years, but this mobile craze of time-waster games is starting to really bug me.  At least with PC and console games there is the potential for more immersion but these mobile games where you just collect resources (or pay money to get some) is crazy.  Let [...]

What other technology from past sci-fi do you see becoming [...]

How long have hackers know about this intel x86 exploit?

I love the title of the article... "Old Intel chips are vulnerable to a fresh security exploit".  I read that and wonder what they mean by "old".  I then read the article and find out what they mean by "fresh" and "old"... Old in this case means a good 50% of intel based computers in existence on the planet. Fresh means something that was likely discovered by someone long ago and used to exploit governments or big corps without [...]
