Samsung 800GB Z-SSD
  • 1,128

These days, typical hard drive news is pretty boring. Drive speeds for the average personal computer or media applications servers are "good enough", but we fail to observe the importance of hard drives for the use of the Internet of Things and for the use of Artificial Intelligence. Samsung just released an 800GB Z-SSD. At first, I was expect something faster than an M2 and it is to a much...

Initial Lidarr Impressions

So many off us have across various forums that talk about Lidarr. Almost sounds like an odd ball cousin of Radarr and Sonarr. If that is what you were thinking, you are not wrong. I held off on it for quite awhile due to how poorly headphones performed, but I cannot complain about what is for free.
