Intel Discontinues Performance Tuning Protection Plan for Overclocking Warranties
After a 9-year run, Intel today has begun to wrap up its Performance Tuning Protection Plan service, the company’s optional extended warranty for CPU overclocking. As of today, Intel is no longer selling new PTP plans, and the program will be shifting to servicing existing warranties while those are still active. Intel’s warranty service was quite unique throughout the industry; given the potentially destructive nature of overclocking, it’s almost unheard of to be covered, even by optional warranties.
Intel originally launched the Performance Tuning Protection Plan back in January of 2012, right in the middle of the heyday of Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPU overclocking (ed: has it really been that long?). At the time, for anywhere be...

12 hReport: Semi Demand 30% Above Supply, 20% Year-on-Year Growth
Semiconductor foundry offerings are thriving due to unprecedented demand for semiconductors and processors in recent quarters. Analysts from TrendForce believe that in Q1 2021 foundries will increase their revenue by 20% year-over-year as their capacities are fully loaded. Since the demand for chips is projected to continue to exceed the constrained supply for several quarters, market observers predict that manufacturers will be busy for a long time, and beyond this, will take a long time to catch up. This is good news for foundry revenue, and may encourage others to widen their foundry offerings. Warnings however about fab equipment are coming into play - being fully loaded means equipment now wears out faster, which increases risks of ...
4 jLaunching Today: NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 - Aiming For Mainstream At $329
NVIDIA this morning is launching their previously announced GeForce RTX 3060. First unveiled back at CES 2021, the latest member of the GeForce RTX 30 series is continuing NVIDIA’s ongoing top-to-bottom launch of Ampere-based video cards, with today’s card in some respects being the most popular one. Aimed at the mainstream market, the RTX 3060 is designed to be a more balanced option for the larger market of gamers who probably aren’t trying to drive high-end 4K displays, but still want the latest graphical features on a 1080p or 1440p display. RTX 3060 cards will go on sale a bit later this morning – at 9am Pacific – with prices starting at $329.

Meanwhile for the full fiscal year, NVIDIA has recorded just under $16.7B in revenue, with a net income for the year of $4.3B.
5 jAMD To Unveil Next Radeon RX 6000 Video Card On March 3rd

5 jHP is Acquiring HyperX for $425 Million
In some unexpected news today, HP and HyperX (formerly a division of Kingston) have jointly released a statement that HP is to acquire HyperX gaming peripherals portfolio, and the brand, for $425 million USD. Kingston retains the DRAM, Flash, and SSD products (those that are branded HyperX will probably be renamed). Perhaps it is indicative that Kingston wants to remain focused on the memory and storage markets, and divest away from a variable commodity market, while at the same time HP is looking to boost its presence in the space alongside its HP OMEN branding.
Pending regulatory review, the deal is expected to go close in Q2 2021, with the acquisition accretive on a non-GAAP to HP in the first full year. The HyperX peripheral line-...

5 hTalk of the notch's demise next year could be good news for Touch ID fansWhere would Apple put the Face ID magic if the notch is no more? Today saw a new Ming-Chi Kuo research note suggest that Apple plans to do away with the notch as soon as the 2022 iPhones. That's next year for those who are struggling to believe we aren't still in March 2020. Replacing the notch? A hole-punch. But that hole can't possibly be big enough for Face ID, can it? The notch was first introduced in 2017 when Face ID and iPhone X made their debut and that bathtub-looking thing was very much needed. It was needed so Apple had somewhere to put the cameras, sensors, and pixie dust needed to make Face ID work so well and in a secure manner, and that's still the case four years later. Face ID has gotten better, but that notch remains....

With a sprawling, epic story that'll see player decisions shape the outcome, it could end being one of the best Nintendo Switch games available.

DxOMark has finished its camera review of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (using an Exynos-powered unit) and the results are not good – the overall score is just 121. Not only is that low, but it’s less than the 126 points awarded to the Galaxy S20 Ultra from a year ago. Note: the S20 Ultra was retested with Version 4 of the review process, so the scores should be comparable. Let’s look at the breakdown. The 2021 model received 128 points for photography, 76 for zoom and 98 for video. The older phone matched the 128 photo score, but is ahead in the zoom (88) and video (106)...

Hackers break into far-right social network Gab, collect a slew of private data
Remember when archivists collected every post on the conservative social media platform Parler earlier this year?
A similar thing just happened to another right-wing online platform, Gab, as hackers claim to have broken into the social media site. But this intrusion is even worse.
On Sunday, a hacktivist collective known as Distributed Denial of Secrets (DDoSecrets) announced "GabLeaks," over 40 million posts that the hackers claim they pulled from the platform. The archive doesn’t just include public profiles and posts, it also includes posts and messages from private accounts, private groups, group passwords, and some hashed user passwords.

5 hA bunch of juicy iPhone rumors just dropped
We've been waiting for Apple to jack up the iPhone's refresh rate for a while now. If the latest round of iPhone 13 rumors are to be believed, we won't have to wait much longer.
The new claims come courtesy of MacRumors, who got their hands on research notes from market analyst and popular Apple prognosticator Ming-Chi Kuo. By Kuo's estimation, the 2021 iPhone (which we'll call the iPhone 13) will have smaller notches on the front and bigger batteries. Some of them could also have a 120Hz display.
If you aren't up on tech lingo, the refresh rate is how often a screen can refresh itself, or "blink," in a second. Up until now, iPhones have shipped with 60Hz screens, meaning they refresh 60 times in a second. Going up to 120Hz would obvious...
7 hDavid Dobrik's photo app Dispo relaunched with an ad imagining him as an old man
David Dobrik's new photo app that reimagines the old way photography worked has launched a new version of the app with an ad that dresses the YouTuber up in an old costume.
Dobrik's app is called Dispo. It's essentially a digital version of an old-school disposable camera. (Get it? Dispo.) A new ad features Dobrik as an old man, crying and flipping through old photos of his partying with influencer pals. The spot was directed by Mark Romanek — director of the film One Hour Photo, which does not feel accidental — the makeup was done by Oscar- winning artist Kazu Hiro. It's super realistic.
Right now Dispo remains invitation only and people are fighting to get in. Basically you take pictures through a small aperture with a crude zoom fu...

Seth Rogen announced the launch of his cannabis brand and the internet loved it so much, the site immediately went down.
The actor/filmmaker/stoner and his longtime creative partner, Evan Goldberg, announced the launch of their cannabis company Houseplant on Monday. The name combines the brand's two main products: "House" goods like ceramic ashtrays and lighters, and weed (plant) strains curated by the two Pineapple Express writers.
"If you know anything about me at all, it's probably that I really love weed," Rogen said in a video announcing the brand's launch. "But what you probably don't know about me is that I've been working on my own weed company for the last ten years." Read more...More about Weed, Seth Rogen, Culture, and Web...
8 hTaylor Swift and fans call out 'Ginny & Georgia' for 'lazy, deeply sexist' joke
The crafty, scheming Ginny and Georgia may have finally met their match: Taylor Swift fans.
The mother-daughter duo had more than enough problems to deal with in the first season of Netflix's newly released drama, which started streaming on Wednesday, but now they can add a displeased Taylor Swift and an army of outraged Swifties to their growing list of drama.
For those of you wondering what Ginny & Georgia did to unleash the unforgiving rage of Taylor Swift fans, your answer lies in a joke from the Season 1 finale, "The Worst Betrayal Since Jordyn and Kylie."
At one point in the episode, Georgia (Brianne Howey) inquires about the dating life of her daughter, Ginny (Antonia Gentry), and Ginny, rude as ever, replies, "What do you care? Y...
10 hNetflix's 'Operation Varsity Blues' trailer is deliciously dramatic
Operation Varsity Blues, otherwise known as the college admissions scandal of 2019, was one of the rare news stories to unite gobsmacked viewers as it broke, and the Netflix version — complete with dramatic reenactments of FBI wiretaps — is poised to do the same. Based on the true events and FBI investigation into wealthy families paying for their kids' college admissions, documentary feature Operation Varsity Blues dials the drama up to 11.
Matthew Modine plays ringleader Rick Singer, who brags about his hundreds of "side door" operations and ends up enticing clients like Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman. Interviews in the trailer recount the blatancy of the scheme — students pretending to be athletes in sports they had never playe...
10 h9 of the best ellipticals for your home gym
For those looking to work out at home, elliptical machines are the top choice for many fitness fanatics who prefer to keep the gym as close to them as possible — AKA their home.
Most ellipticals don’t take up that much space, and they provide really comprehensive cardio workouts for even the most dedicated gym rats. But for some reason, ellipticals aren’t as well-respected as other cardio-based workout machines — we presume that’s because not everyone fully understands the benefits of using one. (More of a yoga person? Try this.)
Clair Mason, a co-founder of elliptical-based gym Elliptica, prefers the Keiser elliptical because it’s well-made and really easy to maintain. But at more than $2,000, it might not be the most practical buy for...
