  1. I usually do it every 6-8 months depending on what kind of environment I'm in. When I lived at my father's we had dogs so it needed to be cleaned every 3-4 months because of dog hair and dander. In my apartment, I get virtually no dust whatsoever.
  2. A company seeking to offer low-latency broadband from satellites yesterday received a key approval from the Federal Communications Commission. Source
  3. 32TB of unreleased, private Windows 10 builds, along with source code for certain parts of the driver stack, have been leaked to BetaArchive, reports The Register. Source
  4. For longevity and whatnot, I usually dump a hefty amount into a base build ($1.5K +) which I'll upgrade components like RAM, SSD/HDDs, GPUs and maybe some other peripherals, but I won't ever dump money on another socket change until my board and CPU doesn't offer a technology I want or is obsolete. I think I could probably deal with my 6700K for a while before I have to change sockets or even brands again.
  5. 113F without constant need for hydration.
  6. I was in Phoenix last year for work and it was 107F when I got off of the plane. I can only imagine it right now.
  7. The United States is inching closer to involvement in the Syrian civil war after U.S. forces shot down a Syrian fighter jet on Sunday. Source
  8. Last year, Colorado father-of-five Tim Farnum gave his two youngest sons smartphones—and immediately regretted it. But he didn’t just take the phones away; he took the extra steps of forming a nonprofit called “Parents Against Underage Smartphones,” or PAUS, and drafting the nation’s first proposed measure that would ban smartphone use among preteens.

  9. An American university student who had been held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months died at a Cincinnati hospital on Monday, just days after he was released from captivity in a coma, his parent said. Source
  10. Probably bought out as a subsidiary.
  11. Definitely this and Battlefront II.
  12. The Syrian army said it would suspend combat operations in the southern city of Deraa for 48 hours from Saturday, as mediators announced two separate attempts to convene new peace talks early next month. Source
  13. The issue also lies in the problem of Afghanistan law enforcement and the socio-economic situation outside of major cities. A lot of the tribal regions of Afghanistan outside of the cities handle affairs internally and there's often mafia/cartel rule from insurgent groups over the tribes for protection and income. If you think about it, the insurgent groups are very similar to that of cartels with the exception of ideology/moral beliefs.
