May the Fourth is coming up and Instant Pot wants to get a head start with some interesting Star Wars-themed deals. Right now you can get an Instant Pot Duo pressure cooker with either an R2-D2 theme or a Darth Vader theme on sale for $59.98. These custom designs are very limited and never go on sale. Today's deal is only the second time we have seen either one of these Instant Pots drop from their regular $100 street price, and this is the lowest they go. This is a great price for a fantastic pressure cooker, and the Star Wars theme is just a little bit extra if you happen to be a fan. There are some other themes available, but they aren't on sale. You can get the BB-8 version for just $79.99, but that's also a 3-quart Instant Pot instead of a 6-quart pot. VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 … [Read more...] about Cook some Tatooine street meat with an R2-D2 Instant Pot on sale for $60

Just as America's stash of black-market Four Loko dwindles, a new form of intoxicating soda has risen like a phoenix from its ashes: pot-laced soda. But while Four Loko has been recalled amid reports of alcohol poisoning and accidental deaths , the worst side effect of overdoing it with marijuana soda might just be a really bad tummy ache. California-based entrepreneur Clay Butler has developed a line of cannabis soft drinks that will hit the shelves of medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado in February and California in the spring. Each 12-ounce beverage which will come in such varieties as Canna Cola, Doc Weed and Orange Kush will contain 35 to 65 milligrams of the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But how much is that compared with, say, the amount of the drug in a marijuana joint? And how does Canna Cola's intoxicating effects stand up to Four Loko? According to a report by the World Health Organization, a typical marijuana joint may … [Read more...] about Pot Soda vs. Four Loko: Which is More Dangerous?
The federal government has announced it is ploughing an additional AU$130 million into the "hugely popular" Regional Connectivity Program (RCP) ahead of handing down its budget on May 11. The funding is broken down into AU$106 million for a second round of the RCP, of which AU$45.6 million has been "quarantined" for Northern Australia, and almost AU$25 million for additional "shovel-ready" projects in round 1.

Bottom line: In addition to the quarterly reports on HDD failure rates published by Backblaze, the cloud backup and storage company has now added SSD boot drives to its data starting with Q1 2021. As Backblaze notes, these drives are fairly recent compared to their HDD counterparts (fewer drive days). However, even this preliminary data - for the latest quarter - shows a noticeable difference between annualized failure rate (AFR) for both categories, standing at under 1 percent for SSDs and just over 10 percent for HDDs. For its latest quarterly report on hard drive reliability, Backblaze notes four models that stood out with zero drive failures through the first three months of 2021. Among these are Seagate's 6TB and Toshiba's 4TB disks, which have an average age of almost six years with lifetime annualized failure rates - April 2013 to March 2021 - coming in at under 1 percent. The other two drives are much newer additions to this testing, and include the Toshiba 16TB MG08 … [Read more...] about Backblaze’s latest storage reliability figures add SSD boot drive failure rates to the mix
Spring means two things to me: grills and gardens . There is no better time than now to get your garden or grow space planted for the best possible returns when that sunshine really hits. As much as we all love Lowe's garden center, making fewer trips to crowded stores helps keep cases of you-know-what down. (We're almost there, people.) Instead, dig into these online seed, plant and bulb delivery services and garden box subscriptions that send seeds, seedlings, flower bulbs, chutes and even full-grown plants along with care instructions, gardening accessories and safe growing aids to your door. For the green-thumbed, buying quality seeds, seedlings, bulbs and chutes online from these subscription services will help maximize your yield. Many of them function as sprawling online bulb, plant and seed marketplaces, but if you're indecisive -- like me -- you can simply input your growing goals and sign up for a monthly subscription to receive shipments of flowering plants, seeds … [Read more...] about 8 garden box subscriptions and seed delivery services for 2021
