    Laptop recommendation

    BHKim raises a point: give us price point so we can narrow now your options. Combining lightest weight with low cost makes it a bit more challenging. And do you have a MicroCenter near you?

    Laptop recommendation

    Not the absolute lightest (3.25 lb), but this 14" i3 HP for $279 at Costco is a steal because many units are shipping upgraded to i5 10th gen G4 Iris Plus CPUs: https://www.costco.com/hp-14%22-laptop---10th-gen-intel-core-i3---1080p.product.100511171.html If you're handy, upgrading the RAM is...

    Tech Bargain Thread: Post Your Deals Here!

    Costco has a really good price on a 10th gen G1 i3 1080p HP laptop at $279. Except the label and CPU ID confirm that it's actually a 10th gen G4 i5 with Iris Plus graphics, which makes it a steal (sale price on a similar i5 would be $350-380). Just wish I had some use for it...

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    Yeah, he Streisand'd it. It would have blown over in no time if he'd just let it. Pretty heavy on his use of "morons" so many times. And nice how he avoids the very simple explanation of why they didn't fix it in post IF it happened: no one noticed until it was pointed out by one of...

    Worst Parent Stories

    I’ve told this before: we had a teen in our town who was in 3 or 4 Bway shows including a full blown musical, but who quit reffing because of the crap dished out by the 20 or so parents who’d show up at any given rec games.

    I realize that this isn't tech, but I figure we must have some DIYer weekend mechanics around here: Advanced Auto Parts is clearing out all their Mobil Super motor oils. Prices vary from store to store, but I got 5 qt jugs of blend for my wife's Tahoe for 2.75, and 5 qt jugs of full syn for my...
