Tech treats for Christmas or anytime.


Recommended Posts



I was hoping to get one of the new Nvidia RTX 3080 series video cards for the holidays.  None have been available—they have only been shipping in small quantities and quickly bought out by scalpers who are selling them for 2-2.5× the price, and that is not behavior I am supporting.  I am not a huge gamer, but I have had a 4K monitor for a while and I thought it would be a nice upgrade to see some of the games I play with friends in more detail.


I ended up purchasing a television stand. 


I have not had a television (or cable TV service) for a number of years now, and the last time I bought a TV was 15 years ago, when CRTs were still common.  Having been home full-time for the past year, I thought it would be nice to rebuild my home entertainment system, and that means getting a new TV.  I am kind of on the fence about getting cable TV service, but I figure between OTA, Netflix and Amazon Prime and my DVD and blu-ray discs I should have enough content to keep myself entertained.

The 3080s should be going down in price soon (after the holidays). As far as getting cable, don't do it. There are way too many ways to stream what you want versus paying for thousands of channels you won't watch.
