GeekNights Monday - Buying the Right Tech


#1

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider how one should choose the right technology. Need a new NAS? Trying to decide which video card to buy? Do you really need a 4k monitor? My NAS Research and this episode can help guide you through the process. In the news, Pokemon Go killed some people, a crazy spreadsheet ostensibly models New York transit, and we'll be live at both MAGFest and PAX South 2018!

Much like clipping coupons, that only makes sense if you are low on money. I’d rather pay an extra $20 than go through all the hassle.


#9

You went to a castle.

To look at the tapestries.

They did it again, this time with a meat expert.

I watched that, and it’s really good. I was going to post it here but forgot.
