Cloudflare WARP 126.96.36.199: Free VPN??? Cloudflare promises that WARP is not an April Fools joke: they're really adding a free VPN service to their 188.8.131.52 app for Android and iOS. We were impressed with the 184.108.40.206 DNS resolver when it launched, a review the current Android and iOS app is in the video!
Computer Power Supply Upgrade! Chris messaged us on Patreon about motherboards, then asked, "How about PSU brands? I currently have corsair that emits an electrical buzz when under load. So I would like to find something else that doesn't have that noise." We talk coil whine, how to fix it, 10 year warranties on power supplies (and HardOCP’s testing of 10 year old PSUs!), 80+ PSU certifications, and, of course, picks from Seasonic, EVGA, and Corsair in the video!
Riding In Waymo Self Driving Cars! This weekend Shannon was flown out by Google to see and experience the Waymo self driving cars in action during a brand ambassador trip to Phoenix Arizona. What was it like riding while an AI drove the car? Watch the video!
Cold Reboot Your Cable Modem - Or Anything - Automatically! Want to restart that cable modem/ISP box (or anything that runs on 120V automatically? @roughlyandrew tweets, "On the podcast you discussed periodically restarting devices. There are some devices to help, including Kasa Power Strip & the 3Gstore Switch. The latter pings regularly & restarts the cable modem if the net connection is lost." Thanks Andrew!!!
