First of all, if you’re here as a Josh Foodie Fan, turn back now.

As if this isn’t enough to excite you into a frenzy, AMD is announcing a livestream in which they will announce new CPUs that you can eventually buy at a later date!

Gaming updates are right next to the hottest zero day vulnerabilities from some of your favorites like Apple and Chrome also.  Yum.

Thank you to our Patreon members both new and current ones that are bumping their patronage!  Could not be doing this without you all!
