Tech Report: All Over The Board
Have you seen the hype on Nintendo Labo? According to the maker: Nintendo Labo combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY creations.
A review by Engadget asks: Nintendo Labo - Overpriced or innovative? Why not both?
Polygon offers 10 alternatives to Nintendo Labo that you can already buy, saying Nintendo is behind the curve when it comes to STEM toys — and these aren’t made of cardboard.
My favorites: Makey Makey, & Piper and Kano.

From Mashable: Remember Spectre and Meltdown?
Thankfully, Intel offered up a partial fix — so all good, right? Well, not exactly. It turns out the patch that was issued by Intel has a few problems of its own, things are so busted that the company is telling some of its customers to avoid the official patch altogether.
CNET explained: (Intel) told manufacturers and users to "stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior," said Intel Executive Vice President Navin Shenoy. "I assure you we are working around the clock to ensure we are addressing these issues."
