Podcast #767 – Intel Foundry Loses Billions, XZ Backdoor, Thermaltake CTE C700 TG Case, SSD Pricing, RX 550 or April Fool’s?

We aren’t too proud of this technological terror we’ve constructed, because the ability to record a podcast is insignificant compared to the power of the Schwartz.   Intel Foundry news, SSD pricing, a new RX 550?, TSMC is quaking, and a bevy of security scares!

Sorry this is posted really late this week!  Moving things is time consuming.

We send out a huge THANK YOU to our generous and ever faithful Patreon members. New folks and current ones that are bumping their patronage are greatly appreciated.

This show cannot go on without you – you know who you are, please consider helping our efforts. It most definitely helps keep us on the air. And helps Josh buy burgers. Thank you!
