How to watch international coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics

The 2018 Winter Olympics are in full swing, but watching online via NBC can be more pain than its worth. Fortunately, there are other ways of watching your favorite sports: You can use a VPN to view streams from Canada, Australia, and (for some), the United Kingdom, as long as you don’t mind coverage not focused on American competitors.

How to find your motherboard’s Spectre CPU fix

Operating system patches alone can protect against the nasty Meltdown flaw affecting Intel processors, but fixing Spectre—Meltdown’s nasty sibling, which affects all CPUs—requires firmware updates for your hardware.

But fast-forward 40 or so years, and oh, micro—how you have changed! Indeed, most of the acceleration toward super-small in desktop PCs has happened over the last five years. Of course, it’s still easy enough to find ordinary business boxes and hulking power towers packed…

Let’s just lay our cards down at once. AMD’s Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G APUs are everything budget gamers have been praying for: surprisingly decent gaming performance at a shockingly low price. In years past, such a statement would be met by skepticism and dismissive “whatever” animated GIFs. But AMD actually over-delivered on its Ryzen CPUs last year, so talks of combining those same Zen cores with the latest and greatest Radeon Vega graphics cores has cash-strapped gamers…
