Lexus Hoverboard is Here

While the world is all getting excited about the Lexus hoverboard (and it IS cool), the technology has been around for quite a while. It's simply Maglev that uses liquid nitrogen cooled semi-conductors that are combined with a magnetic surface and the result is a device that repels gravity. It is pretty cool.

 

Deepcool @ CES 2016

If you haven't heard of Deepcool before, after this CES, you will probably be trying to find someone who sells their products here in North America. Deepcool brought some interesting designs to their suite this year. One of such is the Tristellar case and by looks alone one could almost say it was out of a Star Wars movie. The graphics card is contained in the top one of the three "wings", while the PSU is in the lower left "wing" and lastly the ITX motherboard and CPU are housed in the lower right. There is also enough room to stick one of Deepcool’s liquid coolers in the case as well.

The Images will show the Tristellar S white case however this is a special Bill Owen MOD case with only 50 made globally; the normal version of the case comes in black.

The Genome which will be hitting the market later this year is more than just a case, it's an extreme liquid cooling system. The case and liquid cooler are designed to fit seamlessly together all the while bringing some interesting design elements in along the way. The cooling solution is a 360mm radiator with 3 PWM fans, a helix reservoir, and all the while using the new captain design CPU block and pump. Depending on the final price when it hits the market it really could be worth looking at when building a new rig.

To top it all off DeepCool was demonstrating a PSU that was liquid cooled which is something not too many people have worked on. Who knows if it will become a mainstream item or not, but it's always cool to seem something new and different.

Linux Mint 18 is the Best Desktop - Period

According to quite a few people - Linux is one of the best operating systems ever. The thing is, they are probably right as far as security and ease-of-use goes. The big downside though is compatibility - and that's where Linux struggles. If you want a stand-alone machine for someone that won't install programs, or play a lot of games, Linux is a solid choice. Of the many distributions of Linux, Linux Mint 18 has been crowned the best desktop OS - period. Yes, that includes the other small guys like Microsoft and Apple.

Despite these changes, Mint still runs on old computers you have sitting in your garage. You only need 512MBs of RAM to run it, although 1GB is recommended. You can fit Mint on a 10GB hard-drive, although 20GB is recommended. As for a display you can run it on 1024×768 resolution or even lower if you don't mind using the ALT key to drag windows with the mouse.

Microsoft Moves to the Cloud

Microsoft has come a long way and they've had some great successes and some horrible blunders. Often, it appears that just when they are ready to break through a market, they cancel the product and leave people hanging. They did this with Zune and I'm pretty sure that their mobile platform is all but dead. Their cloud service - Azure - is alive and very well however. In fact their cloud service grew by 7% and netted them $6.7 Billion in revenue. Clearly, they are doing something right.

The earnings report is particularly interesting for Microsoft, as it's the first since its $26 billion LinkedIn purchase. That was Microsoft's largest deal ever, and despite making plenty of synergistic sense, many considered it a curious move for a company that's trying to double-down on its productive relevance.
