Getting ready to build a new gaming PC? Amazon Prime Day is the perfect time

Prime Day 2020 is right around the corner, after getting delayed because it’s 2020 and, well, literally everything is getting delayed. However, by launching the giant sales event now, there’s a wealth of PC components that should be getting some pretty massive discounts.

We’ve seen Nvidia Ampere launch in September, and we have AMD Zen 3 processors and RDNA 2 graphics cards launching later in October – not to mention 10th-generation Intel processors, which launched way back in May 2020. For the first time in awhile, Prime Day is arriving right when a lot of still-good last-generation hardware is going to be moving. 

But before you whip your wallet out to buy the first components that get a shiny new deal on Amazon Prime Day, we thought it would be a good idea to point out what’s going to be worth your time, so you don’t waste money on hardware

3 “Perfect 10” Stocks With Momentum on Their Side

The market’s main indexes are climbing back above key points, after posting losses in September. The S&P 500 has climbed back above 3,400, the Dow Jones is back above 28,000, and the NASDAQ is over 11,300. Since the indexes hit bottom on September 23, trading has been volatile- but trending upwards.

By appearances, the market has corrected itself, and looks to be returning to the bullish tendency it showed through the summer. The September jobs report showed that the economy continues to recover, albeit at a slowing pace, from the coronavirus-inspired downturn of the spring. President Trump’s COVID diagnosis threw investors for a day, but his return to the White House and his path to recovery offer a calming effect.

In all, it has investors looking to buy back in. And for those investors who are still nervous, Wall Street’s analysts have picked out stocks with plenty of momentum propelling

Cocktail Chemistry: 10 Science-Backed Tips for the Perfect Drink

To the average cocktail lover, the action behind a bar counter can seem full of magic and mystery. There’s a quick sprig of this and a small splash of that, followed by loud, vigorous shaking or a few stirs, then out pours a perfectly formed beverage. At first sip you know: There’s no way you could make anything this good at home. 

Lately, with the weather getting cooler, and no end to this pandemic in sight, many of us are missing our neighborhood haunts. Though some bars are selling cocktails to go, many of us are on our own. If we want to drink a perfect Negroni this Halloween, we’ll have to make it ourselves.

Luckily, making cocktails isn’t magic, it’s science. A great bar is just a chemistry lab; each cocktail, a perfectly replicable concoction.

To help unravel the science of drinking, Discover talked with Kevin Liu, author of

Why No One Understands Agile, SCRUM & DevOps & Why Perfect Technology Abstractions Are Sure To Fail

The problem with Agile, SCRUM and DevOps – and all abstract solutions – is that expectations are always set too high toward unachievable goals.  Requirements management and applications development are just parts of a continuous journey, not the destination, because there is no final destination. Agile is a strategic attitude, not a CPA exam.

It Always Sounds Better Than It Is

Whether it’s Agile, DevOps, SCRUM, enterprise architecture, digital transformation or even cloud computing, we always wax poetic about how they will save a fortune, generate new revenue and, OMG, change everything.  Technologists write business cases, sell them to non-technology executives and then proceed with unjustified optimism.  This time it’s Agile methodology and its cousins SCRUM and DevOps. 

Agile projects fail almost as much as all the others.  Yet we still sell “Agile” as an elixir:  “If we only had an Agile environment, an Agile team

Microsoft Confirms Critical Windows Server ‘Perfect 10’ Zerologon Attacks Have Started

Just days ago, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a rare emergency directive instructing all federal agencies to apply a Windows Server security update before midnight on Monday, September 21. That directive spoke of the need to take immediate and emergency action in order to mitigate the risk of a critical Windows Server exploit called Zerologon.

The exploit, which enables an attacker to become an instant administrator, is so serious it rated a perfect 10 on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) and Microsoft itself determined it to be of critical severity. CISA also urged local and state governments, along with organizations in the private sector, to patch their Windows Server domain controllers as a matter of urgency. Now the Microsoft Security Intelligence team, a

The Use of Modern Technology in Outdoor Advertising | by The Perfect Media | Aug, 2020

The Perfect Media

From the first hand-painted outdoor signages, we’ve come a long way since then in regards to technological advancements in the outdoor advertising industry. Through modern technology, billboards now have the ability to connect and interact with consumers through many creative ideas and strategies: payment systems, data trackers, edible billboards, real-time messages, augmented reality, virtual reality, QR technology, and so many more. These advancements have also paved the way for collaborative advertisements between outdoor and mobile advertising by allowing consumers to participate in billboard advertisements through their smartphones and gadgets

One of the greatest advancements in the industry was the installment of LED screen billboards dating back to 2007. In 2008, The Perfect Media even built its own LED screen billboard at Queensway Shopping Centre for Nike’s 2009 Human Race. With the entrance of digital signages, automation and data technology also saw advancements. Digital billboards are flexible with the types of

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro review: The perfect wireless gaming mouse is here

Razer DeathAdder V2 ProSource: Windows Central

The Razer DeathAdder needs no introduction. If you’re even remotely interested in PC gaming, you’ll be aware of it. The DeathAdder is Razer’s most popular gaming mouse and with good reason. I’ve been using one for years and will continue to do so. It ticks every single box I look for in a mouse.

The DeathAdder V2 Pro adds another box and then ticks that one. Wireless PC peripherals are so much more convenient, so much tidier, and easier to live with, but traditionally wireless hasn’t been a friend of the PC gamer. Razer has poured some serious research dollars into perfecting the wireless mouse, producing products that are almost completely indistinguishable from their wired counterparts in design and performance.

Despite my partner’s disdain for pet cameras, it makes sense that I, the neurotic dog mom, would want one. Every time we leave the house for several hours, there’s a small part of me that’s convinced our furballs have died gruesome deaths due to freak accidents. I imagine their ghosts staring at me dolefully, asking why, oh why, did we let them die disconsolate and alone? So even though he explicitly told me not to, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to review Petcube’s budget pet camera, the $40 Petcube Cam.

You did not misread. The Petcube Cam is only $40!!! That’s a fraction of the price of other pet cameras, which can go for as much as $200. Another thing Petcube’s trying to emphasize this time around is online Vet Chats. As in, if your pet has explosive diarrhea in the middle of
