How the Game Genie worked ☠

This was truly an awesome product.

Apple cheated with the M1

This is cool.

If it is difficult to do with the tool you have you probably need a new tool.

RISC-V performance

This is a good comparrison – performance per watt is a great measure of true performance.

Go on ARM

The future is ARM – or at least the future is an environment of more than one processor architecture!

RasPi doorbell ?

This project is awesome!!! ?

The history of macOS

The NeXT was truly amazing. A machine for the future.

Home Pi Cluster

Start with a heartbeat! Cool little project to get a Raspberry Pi home cluster up and running.

Let’s get physical! ?

This article is fantastic!

It shows you how to get started with a Raspberry Pi and a breadboard to make some cool Python code.

Programming physical stuff is cool! ?

SkyNET much?

I’m pretty sure this is the plot of some sci-fi movie where we all end up dead.

Making better and smarter robots sounds cool though.

Hummer + Unreal Engine

Of course!

Unreal Engine and Unity are actually very great at building user interfaces.

When to upgrade RAM

It is actually a good point: Identidy the bottleneck in your PC before spending any time and/or money to upgrade.

SEGA Master System

I love these teardowns of older consoles. I had one of these!

Old computers ?

Fixing up old computers is like fixing up old cars but needs less space.

The right ? for the job?

Maybe it shouldn’t be “all or nothing”… Serverless has it’s place, as well as beefy racks of metal!

Adding numbers on computers

Why is 0.1 + 0.2 != 0.3

Board game platform

This is cool.

Physical board games with pieces you can touch and feel is good. This is useful and can be made very accessible.

Volume up!

I love hardware projects and this one is no exception!

PS5 Tech

This is a good runthrough of the tech in the PS5.

Inside the PS5!

Fantastic video!

This hardware is truly amazing! Next gen!

Alternatives for the RasPi

It is always fun to experiment with other distributions and ways to set up the Raspberry Pi – it is truly capable of being a real computer for most of your work.

Hacking Coffee Maker ☕️

8 MHz can hurt too ?

It’s all in the software

Like it or not, this is an example of the fact that software is eating the world.

Reverse engineering ?

This is a fantastic piece of work!

Strong ARM future?

This article has a nice case for the future of ARM processors running everything now that Apple has decided to switch their laptop and desktop machines from Intel to ARM based processors.

Disk Partitions ?

The story of disk partitions is long and …. quite simple ?‍♀️

Monitor info for devs! ?‍?

A good monitor is key – after all you are looking at it 30-35 hours per day ?

On Rosetta2

The Rosetta layer is a fantastic peice of engineering!

It was good when it let you run PowerPC applications on your Intel processor – version 2 will let you run Intel applications on your future Apple Arm Silicon.

The most excceptional thing about this is the translate-at-install function – you’ll never know the difference!

N64 was glorious ?

This article takes you through all the architecture of the Nintendo 64 machine.

It was a glorious time.

Mechanical Keyboard Guide

This is a very comprehensive guide.

I like my mechanical keyboard so much!

A lot of pie

These Raspberry Pi clusters are truly amazing.

And they take up so little space – every home should have one.

Old hardware archeology ?

Truly fascinating!

I remember this hardware! ?

Build a phone ?

I think that most everyday users would have a good time building their own tools.

A phone might not be the most obvious candidate though ?‍♀️

CSI in the machine ?️‍♀️

This is a cool story about some forensics!

This story has it all! It is some cool learning about how filesystems and the Zoom device works – along with some learnings about audio/wave files.

I remember debugging a FAT12 driver for Linux back in the early 2000’s – fun times!

Hot CPU ?

This is a very interresting question!

Can you actually overheat your computer by running the CPU at 100% workload??

Noice cancellation on-a-chip

It makes sense to have noise cancellation as a part of the standard chips that is produced and used in everything.

Quallcom seems to have a leg up on everyone in the business and constantly seem to be embedding new features into they chips ??

PS5 Controller ?

I absolutely adore the controllers for the whole PlayStation console lineup. Since the first launch the design has been very consistent.

When you pick up the first analog PlayStation controller (the dual shock) you can easily see the evolution – instantly recognizable.

MacBooks bricked ?‍♀️

This is really bad.

The hardware stack is full of software ?

This still shouldn’t happen. Really not.
