The New Switch Lite Will Be $199

The GaneMaster loves the original Switch. This sounds like a lighter, “dumbed down” version.

Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, cheaper Switch built exclusively for handheld play

The Verge – By Andrew Webster – “There’s a new Switch on the way, and it’s a whole lot smaller. Today Nintendo revealed the Switch Lite, designed as a less expensive alternative to the original tablet / console hybrid. It comes in at $199 — $100 less than the base unit — and for that price you get a streamlined version of the Switch, but also a few caveats. The Switch Lite is designed explicitly as a handheld: you can’t connect it to your TV, and the Joy-Con controllers are built right in. ‘The two systems will complement each other and co-exist in the marketplace,’ Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser tells The Verge.

There are a number of improvements with the Switch Lite. It’s significantly lighter, for one thing; I played with one for around 20 minutes, and the difference was noticeable, particularly when you pick up an original Switch afterwards. The Switch Lite also feels more sturdy since the Joy-Con controllers are now part of the device. The controller layout is largely identical on the Lite, though the new Switch has a proper d-pad, replacing the not-so-precise directional buttons on the original.

Nintendo says the Lite features ‘slightly’ improved battery life — the company wouldn’t get any more specific than that — due to a more power-efficient chip layout, as well as the lack of additional batteries in the built-in controllers. The Switch Lite also does away with the device’s controversial kickstand.”

IBM Buys Red Hat

IBM Red Hat

I was one of Red Hat’s first 100 customers! Now, IBM has purchased the company for 34 Billion dollars! Wow!

TechCrunch – “We’ve known it was coming since late last year, but now it’s final: IBM has wrapped up its $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat, completing what is one of the largest tech acquisitions of all time.

IBM originally announced its intent to acquire the Linux developer in October of last year. The U.S. Department of Justice gave its stamp of approval in May, and the last big potential roadblock was removed when the EU gave its unconditional approval at the end of June.

IBM says that Red Hat will stay under the watch of CEO Jim Whitehurst, with Whitehurst joining IBM’s senior management and reporting directly to IBM CEO Ginni Rometty.”

The Brave Web Browser

The Brave Web BrowserMy ol’ buddy from where I used to work, the “other Computer Curmudgeon,” shared this with me. I had looked at it briefly many years ago, but he insisted I look again, to “break free of the evil collective that is Google!” Here’s what the folks at Brave say of themselves:

“You are not a product. Why use a browser that treats you like one? Enjoy private, secure and fast browsing with Brave.

Load pages 2x faster on desktop and up to 8x faster on mobile.
Watch Brave in action, head-to-head-to-head against Chrome and Firefox. Brave loads pages twice as fast out of the box with nothing to install, learn or manage.

Experience unparalleled privacy and security.
Brave fights malware and prevents tracking, keeping your information safe and secure. It’s our top priority.

We’re not in the personal data business.
Our servers neither see nor store your browsing data – it stays private, on your devices, until you delete it. Which means we won’t ever sell your data to third parties.

Customize your shield settings
Choose your settings on a per-site or browser-wide basis. See how many ads and trackers are being blocked by Brave every day on the New Tab Page.

Security meets simplicity
If you’re willing to research, download, and install multiple extensions, and carefully configure and correctly maintain settings in both the browser and extensions, you can match some of Brave’s privacy and security.

Brave does all that work for you. Simple, right?

Whenever possible, Brave automatically upgrades to HTTPS for secure, encrypted communications when an ordinary browser would use an insecure connection.

Defaults that matter
Browse confidently with default settings that block phishing, malware, and malvertising. Also, plugins, which have proven to be a security risk, are disabled by default.

Sync your devices bravely
Brave Sync, currently in beta, can be enabled to encrypt and synchronize your preferred settings and bookmarks. However, Brave does not have the keys to decrypt your data.

Features:

Shields
Ad blocking
Fingerprinting prevention
Cookie control
HTTPS upgrading
Block scripts

Configurable global shield defaults

I was able to add back in my favorite Google Chrome extensions:

LastPass

Adblock Plus

ColorZilla

Slick RSS

uBlock Origin

Privacy Badger

minerBlock

My buddy likes that it disables auto-play on videos and such… a much quieter experience! There is also the fact that Google has been discovered to value certain search results over others that reflect their political views. You can be swayed in your opinions if you “believe” Google results out-of-hand. I find this quite disturbing! A search engine should be totally neutral when it comes to reporting results. Maybe it is also time to look at “Duck Duck Go” as well!

It also has a built-in BitTorrent client that is safe, and easy to use. I used it while downloading the latest version of Ubuntu Server to install. Pretty cool! This browser gives you greater safety, and greater personal control.

Boy, do I feel safe now! I have made Brave my default browser now! I have been using it for a while! Everything I need to do works. Check this one out!
