TP-Link Archer C5400X Review (Page 1 of 5)

"One day, I will stand up in front of this room and teach a class at this university," I joked with my friend back when we were both in our second year of undergraduate studies in 2010. We both laughed at this idea, knowing full well it is a pretty unlikely reality. As fate would have had it, I recently received an opportunity to teach a course at the University of Calgary this semester. Who knew such an impossibility would happen within the same decade of me making that joke? Teaching a class at the university has always been my dream, and I am more than grateful to be able to be in the position I am today. The funniest part is this is not even an entry level class. I am teaching is a fourth year electrical engineering class in computer networking, which is not only something I am interested in, but also closely related to my research specialty. What makes computer networking so interesting? I would say the sheer novelty of seeing a packet making it from my house here in Canada to a town as far as Australia with each node only knowing the next hop in the route. The way internet backbone equipment handles traffic to the performance of local wireless access points in modern times is also mind boggling. In fact, consumer wireless routers have come from boxes that could barely crack a megabit per second in real life to modern equipment faster than wired networks of yesteryear is downright impressive. Take a look at the TP-Link Archer C5400X, for example. With a 1.8GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU, three co-processors, 1GB RAM, triple bands for a combined 5334 Mbps theoretical bandwidth, and built-in antivirus protection, just how amazing is it?

NZXT H510 Elite Review (Page 1 of 4)

It seems nowadays a lot of famous people are often monitored and judged by their social media content. Worse yet, media and news sources often scour into their past to dig up the dirt. I think it is fair to say all of us have made questionable choices, and these are often put on full display, as if to say that the person should have known better when they were younger. As such, I decided it was good for me to go through my Facebook timeline just to look through my own questionable choices. Thankfully, I really do not have anything to hide, but it was more for the entertainment value. After digging through my Facebook data spanning back to 2011, I can say there are quite a few things I cringed at as well as some real achievements I made. While I saw all my cringe moments in my teenage years, I was seemingly more willing to talk in a public setting, at least between Facebook profile pages. Some achievements I recalled included saying "pika" before I sneezed, waking up and getting on a bus within a five-minute time period, and catching a falling leaf between my eye and my glasses while walking outside. Another worrying trend was that most of my "liked" posts were of puns I posted back and forth between my friend. Unlike some of the politicians and celebrities, I think most of my social media content is worth sharing again, even if it clearly displayed a younger, less mature Aaron. When NZXT announced and sent us their H510 Elite, I definitely felt a bit of deja vu. It was only earlier this year when I reviewed the H500 and yet we already had a replacement. What is NZXT bringing that is new to the table that gives it the "Elite" status? Can we see growth by NZXT as a case manufacturer? Let us read on to find out!

Google Chrome is getting way better tab management soon

From The Verge: If you’re a Chrome user who likes to have 50 tabs open at a time, Google is making things slightly easier soon. Tab management in Chrome currently requires you to hover over each tab and wait for a description of the tab or to simply spot one visually via the tiny favicon. This can be difficult when you’ve got a lot of tabs open, so Google is addressing it with a new preview that will allow you to hover over tabs quickly to get to the right one.

Samsung Is Promising 'Never-Die' SSDs

Mozilla steps on the gas, cuts time between Firefox upgrades in half

From ComputerWorld: Mozilla on Tuesday announced it would accelerate Firefox releases by reducing the interval between upgrades to just four weeks.

Firefox has been on a relatively rapid release cadence - an upgrade every six to eight weeks - since 2011, when Mozilla shifted to a faster schedule, a move seen at the time as reaction to the then-up-and-coming Chrome from Google. Prior to that, Mozilla spent up to a year - and longer - between upgrades.

Now, it'll be just four weeks.
