    • Microsoft announced a new Surface device last night, the Surface Go.  The announcement felt forced as leaks were dropping all over the place so it looks like the Surface Team just said, "what the heck," post it! 
       
      It's a confusing addition to the family. Remember Surface 3?  The Go is a much improved device but I'll have to get my hands on it in order to fully judge it.  I loved the 3 and still own it with a dock.
       
      It starts at $399 which is great but the hardware is a bit limited at that price point.  It starts with the Pentium Gold 4415y processor. Here is a comparison to show you some characteristics versus the Core i3. It also starts at 4Gb of RAM and a 64Gb eMMC drive.  It's only 1.15 pounds and will have LTE options in the future.
       
      I've read a ton of posts on this device where there is "target market" confusion.  Read it for yourself straight from Microsoft's mouth. "Empower your workforce with the lightest, most compact Surface yet"

       
       
      Here is the announcement post - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-go
       
      Most articles are comparing it to iPad's and Chromebooks and although i think it will be a good alternative to the Chromebook I don't think it is a direct compare to the iPad nor targeting it.  I think it is a build that came from direct feedback from the working market.  A light portable with pen ability that doesn't cost $1500 if it is dropped. Pretty simple.
       

       
      My biggest disappointment is the keyboard.  Yup, gotta add $99 if you don't want to type on glass.
       
      Will enthusiasts buy it? Couch PC? Reader by the bed?  This little Surface has a lot of merit on paper so we will see how it holds up when it ships on August 2nd.  Let me know down below if you are going to get one.

    • How to get Cryptocurrency without mining or buying a thing
      Brave Browser and the Basic Attention Token (BAT)

      This one is new to me but the coin is not.  BAT Coin may sound funny but it is a serious "ALT" coin.

      Synology C2 Backup Now Available to US Customers
       
      This is a data backup service that Synology released to EU customers last year.  I remember trying to get it to install and it wouldn't take my CC# because of location.  Fair enough, will it now and how much will it cost?

      Thank you for your response 3-5 machines i will add a ssd on the odd, but i understood two things :   1) that i can't boot from it (and i have to use an sd card to move the bootloader to it) 2) i have to put the B120i to AHCI, otherwise, ssd will not be visible   is this true? what are my options for having a raid? Software in windows?   Thanks, M

      Couldn't find any information on the forum about the brand "nemix", does anyone know if this will work in a Gen8 microserver: https://www.amazon.com/PC3-10600-Apple-Mac-Pro-Mid/dp/B07662THF8/ ?

      How many VM's are you planning to install on Hyper V Server? Physical or virtual, I still recommend the OS to be installed on a seperate partition from the data drives. Depending on what you are looking to achieve, I would look at adding an SSD to the server for the OS drives of the VM's.

      Nope, nothing from the charger at all, same with the dock, just doesn't light up at all, will try something to draw from the PSU via USB and see if that sparks (pun intended) it into life..
