When Will Ugly Computer Cases Disappear?

Filed under
Hardware

"A few years ago when companies began introducing their pre-modded computer cases, it is safe to say that the majority of the enthusiast community was quite excited to see something unique being brought to the market. These new cases were aimed at the person that did not possess the skills or have the time required to perform tedious case mods. Up until that point, all computer users had available were basic, bland beige (or similar "colored") cases to store their precious system components. These new cases brought along some attractive and interesting concepts and designs. Aluminum, instead of steel, and high quality construction became the norm. Gradually these wonderful designs began to change. Either the market became flooded with hundreds of pre-modded cases or the manufacturers started taking advantage of the community and began producing rather shameful, mostly steel cases, wrapped in monstrous looking plastic shells."

Strangely though the one platform where I've found Ubuntu 20.04 hard regressing so far is with the Dell XPS 7390 Ice Lake. Read more

  • My home DSL link really is fast enough to make remote X acceptable

    Of course, running X remotely over a DSL link that's only medium fast doesn't measure up to running it over a 1G Ethernet network, much less the local machine. I can certainly feel the difference (mostly in latency and responsiveness). But it's much more usable than I might have expected, and I've had to change my work habits less than I feared.

  • Killed by Apple: Dark Sky isn't alone in Cupertino's Android app graveyard

    Unfortunately, Android users are no stranger to the effects of Apple’s spending spree. Over the years, Apple has bought some of the best and most beloved apps and left Android users twisting in the wind with no alternative other than to switch to an iPhone.

    And sadly, this won’t be the last time it happens. Apple has a history of buying and killing (or crippling) Android apps and services over the years with a smile, and with a ton of money, lots of clout, and a billion-plus customers, there isn’t much Google can do to stop it.

  • How to exploit parser differentials

    The move to microservices-based architecture creates more attack surface for nefarious actors, so when our security researchers discovered a file upload vulnerability within GitLab, we patched it right up in our GitLab 12.7.4 security release. We dive deeper into the problems that lead to this vulnerability and use it to illustrate the underlying concept of parser differentials.
