ASUS Prime Z270-A Motherboard on PCPer









ASUS Prime Z270-A Motherboard Review

on PCPer Website





The Prime Z270-A motherboard is one of ASUS' initial offering integrating the 

Intel Z270 chipset. The board features ASUS' Channel line 

aesthetics with a black PCB and white plastic accents. 

The board's integrated Intel Z270 chipset 

integrates support for the latest Intel LGA1151 

Kaby Lake processor line as well 

as Dual Channel DDR4 memory. 

Offered at a price-competitive MSRP of $164, 

the Prime Z270-A offers a compelling price point with 

respect to its integrated 

features and performance potential.

The Drive to make things More Difficult


Bits and Pieces of  8 

(the dogs that ate my homework environment) 

Trying to Work with Google Drive?  

Here are Some of the Gotchas

Forget about Picasa and Learn Files and Folders




It's all about the New App Culture and that just
Can't be good.

Welcome to the Land of  Way Too many Conversions

On Windows I use notepad for most of  my quicky notes.  And over the years that functioning program has served me quite well thank you. different

Enter the World of Google Drive and it's
"Let's throw out this baby with the bathwater"
and use something different

(somehow that sounds so Monty Python to me)

"You don't have to Fix It if it Really isn't broken, Dude!"

But engineer's are always changing things, aren't they?

This mentality is the result of too many

"Kooks" in the Kitchen.

Some things Work,
Other things...
Not so  much.

And so it Goes...

A New Cordcutter makes a Point



===================
Cable was Out last night and yet 
life went on...

With a little gadget called 
Raspberry Pi
the show went on.
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

Of course with my new add on YouTube TV
and my Chromecast connector, I could still
watch 'live' network tv.  Thus I was able to 
see the Clippers win game 6 with Utah and
force a game 7 on  Sunday.

Lucky me, I had just set up my desktop 
computer running Win 7 with the Chrome
browser and had access to my new 


YouTube TV Toy.

-----------------------------------------------

Afterwards, using the Raspberry Pi
We watched old episodes of  Dark Matter
season 2. Which switched on the ABC
pluugin that has a list of  ABC shows
both old and new.  We watched a couple 
of episodes of  The Middle, whose comedy
is not from left field.

Xiaomi Mi 6 is now official; phone will be released on 
April 28th with SD-835 and 6GB of RAM

Posted: 19 Apr 2017


============================

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is now official. Introduced by Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun this morning, the eagerly awaited handset features a 
5.15-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. 

The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood with an 
octa-core 2.45 GHz CPU, 
and the Adreno 540 GPU. 

The handset will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 
128GB of native storage. 

A 3350mAh battery is charged with keeping the lights on. Because the Snapdragon 835 SoC is 25% more efficient than the Snapdragon 820, 
the Mi 6 should provide users with outstanding battery life.

Saturdays Post on Working with my new YouTube TV





YouTube TV  The Good Part:

YouTube TV is working very well now.  Saw live broadcast
on my windows 10 laptop of  the Clippers and the Jazz in 
game one of the first round semi-finals.

The Bad Part:

The Clippers lost with a last
second shot of the game.

And so it goes.

MC2backup And the Screens Just Keep On Coming






A New Phase of TV that comes over the air: 

YouTube TV  from Google.

Starting with 39 basic channels of  CBS NBC ABC FOX and ESPN and many more in Live Feed and the ability to record everything (like 3 simultaneous channels to watch later. ) 

The $35 dollar entry price is very tempting.

Google TV And Why is Everyone saying "Game Over" ???







I'm just getting up to Speed about Google's New You Tube TV app.

The chatter about it started (where else?) 
on Leo's Sunday TWIT Show. 

With more info added  on Tuesday's

All About Android  (AAA)
episode 313.


About 40 minutes into the AAA podcast.

Is it the Bees Knees?  

Is it the TV Interface
that Jobs was looking for?


So far, at first Blush, it does Look Pretty Good
