    I have been known to put a few scoops of Publix Coffee ice cream into a heavy glass, microwave it for 15 seconds, and stir vigorously to make my own coffee milkshake.

    If you can't trust Entrust, who can you trust?

    And those NASA cubes REALLY look like they were inspired by someone playing Portal!

  • I would want to know how you would keep an i7 on an SBC cool without compromising the form factor. But that looks really legit and I would so totally want to tinker around with one of those.

  • That credit card sized board would make an awesome router. I have a Protectli Vault4 port and would like to get something a little beefier. I hope they incorporate something like that into one of their devices. Or maybe the next Gen SteamDeck :p

  • When I was much younger, my foray into the world of coffee started with a local ice cream shop. They made an amazing treat that included ice cream, real coffee, whipped cream, etc. After getting that treat many times, I actually started drinking real coffee. Now, many decades later, I can't get my day started without mulitple cups.

  • No comments about the printing, huh?  I guess we've all grown to accept the real "print nightmare" this has become.  Might has well throw all of them in the trash.

  • It feels like Microsoft have spent the last 18 months doing their bit for the paperless office by breaking printing with their updates. I'm all for it personally...

  • Is the coffee milkshake the same as putting coffee in a protein shake? 
    I usually get enough coffee just drinking it but sometimes I have poured some coffee into a protein shake.

  • I'm really big into SBC's as of lately.  4x4 boards like #ASRock iBox for fanless industrial PC's (also cue OnLogic), and even slightly bigger USFF PC's like HP EliteDesk DM (desktop mini) are what's in.  I would also like to see way more x86-64 SBC's.  Once the supply chain gets a grip on itself, maybe we can not only get these available but at reasonable prices.

    Intel 11th gen mobile chips ('U', 'UE', and a few others) are hard to get a hold of because of 10nm's failure to launch, but it does make for cool and efficient chips.

  • Another day, another Windows printing issue. I still maintain that Microsoft's constant breaking of printer functionality is their passive-aggressive way of getting people to move toward paper-less, which I fully support.

    That tiny i7 computer looks cool.

  • This credit card-sized PC board can use an Intel Core i7

    Ok that thing looks fun to play with. Would be super cool to see what people can build with one of these all maxed out. This would make for a real nice microcomputer.

  • Finding decent x86/amd64 SBCs with the right layout is harder than finding a place with RPis in stock. I've found some that aren't quite right, but close enough that I think I can make them work for what I want them for, but I just haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    The harder part will be getting to a zero-G environment to use it! Don't think they fly too well otherwise.

    Gave me Terrahawks flashbacks, although they were spheres to be fair.

  • In New England, a milk shake is just ice cream and milk.  Feh.

    A frappe is ice cream, milk, and a complementary syrup.  My go-to is a mocha frappe, which is milk, coffee ice cream, and chocolate syrup.  There is no substitute.

    First, Microsoft required you to replace every PC in your organization in order to use Win11.  Now, Microsoft is essentially saying they will no longer support printing and you're on your own.
