Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Feds Dropped the Hammer on Huawei and ZTE, Will This Have Any Real Effect?

Yesterday the U.S. Federal government pass a new appropriations bill for Nation Defense and included it it was the banning of federal employees, contractors, etc, for using ZTE or Huawei devices or components in government equipment.

Obviously the first thought is how will this affect these 2 Chinese tech giants?

In truth, this will have little to no effect on Huawei since without a direct USA carrier supplier they are still the number 2 smartphone selling mfg on earth!

ZTE may have a few issues figuring out ways to get its Axon9 into the US market. Time will tell, but neither of these companies will be hurting much due to the new legislation.

Below is a short video explaining the situation…

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Unboxing And Review Of The 2018 MacBook Pro 13.3 Inch Notebook.

The new MacBook Pro’s have a few improvements, which of course one of them is NOT the price, but they now offer 8th Gen Intel processors. This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers all the specs.

If you are willing to cough up about $1800 for a notebook, then this might be the one for you.

I have also watched a few videos on the new MacBook Pro 15 inch with the Intel Core i9 processor and that one, unlike this version, has some serious heating issues. It will probably be very popular in areas north of the arctic circle where it can be used as a space heater. But that is not an issue with the 13.3 inch version, which runs quite cool.

So make sure to check out the video and also to check out Andrew’s channel! So let us proceed directly to that video.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Speed Up Your Old Laptop Get an SSD!

If you have one of the newer notebooks from China, or perhaps an older laptop or notebook with a 2.5 inch Hard Disk, you might be looking for a way to make it faster and more power efficient. The answer of course is an SSD or an M.2 2242 SSD depending on the device.

Below are the links to the NewEgg pages I used as a reference in the video and the video I mentioned.
2.5 inch SSD: https://goo.gl/iddz24
M.2. 2242: https://goo.gl/o4s5Xa
My previous video on inexpensive notebooks.

So I just thought I would let folks know that you don’t need an expensive SSD to speed up your PC, or build that barebones mini PC.

That is all I have to say, since the video pretty much covers it all.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Full Review of The Lenovo X1 Carbon Laptop (6th Gen)

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the 14 inch Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen , 14 inch laptop/notebook. This is a high end business class device that is perfect for large business and productivity.
