    Are the "USB 3.1 Tpye-C" and "USB 3.1 Tpye-A" ports enhanced due to the typo?

    I shall have to watch for an IoT label turning up on our cat, they seem to be everywhere else already. I mean really, this isn't a thing that embeds a computer, it just is a computer.

    i have built several gigabyte brix systems and they always go down well and i may get one of these to see what the performance is like. i liked the cubi too, it was a nice looking box.

    Your cat has an embedded computer? Do you at least use it to derive the optimal catfood dispensing velocity? The world needs to know.
