    Was there anything you simply had to have, or perhaps something that blew your mind?

    Ring Doorbell's. They work great and are easy to install/setup.

    Fire is quite handy. And the Wheel. Actually the Wheel.

    I already have a doorbell, so no need to pay money for another one.
    I am inclined to say the new GFX cards from AMD, first they put the hurt on intel on the CPU side, now Nvidia are feeling it too.

    And both are pretty nice for us consumers.

    So i have build a complete new AMD machine, and i upped from 4 old intel cores to 12 AMD cores, and from a 570 GTX to a 5700 XT, and from 32 GB RAM to 64GB + a nvme drive.

    Ring??? I totally get it, I just can't justify paying to be big brother's eyes.

    I'm loving how much NVME M.2 SSDs have come down in price. I grabbed a 1TB one. I'm also finally going to move from a 1080p 60Hz panel to a 1440p 144Hz panel.

    AMD changed the game, but I'm gonna wait for the next gen Ryzen 4000 series.

    Well, Haptic eSkin would have won if it were available now.

    Them nanowire backscatter power harvesters sound like something Geordi LaForge would calibrate, so they're pretty high on the list.
    Couple of the TRX40 motherboards look awesome, although the Aorus RGM RAM (now with MOAR LEDs) is a serious contender for obvious reasons...

    64-core Epyc?
    Valve Index?
    Anduril drone killer?

    Nah, I'd probably go with foldable screen devices. Once they get the creases ironed out (literally), I can see that becoming default tech very quickly!

    You mean the company that's been in the news recently due to it's users having their date leaked..... and to be fair the doorbell's also been around since before 2019 so not sure you can really class it as best tech of 2019.


    For me it would be something and assuming it can include items not for sale yet...
    If I was to pick something 'pc' it would be amd ryzen 3/epyc cpu's...
    If I was to pick something 'tech' it would be Lamborghini Terzo Millennio if I'm being honest, more for pushing the boundaries on what is an 'electric' car than anything else. It's using a supercapacitor rather than a battery for it's power supply which is pretty unique at the moment.

    Oh, if we're allowed a second vote for non-computery stuff, including concepts... The Peugeot e-LEGEND is far more in the realm of something I'd actually choose to own, at least aesthetically. The Lambo looks like it was designed to be a CoolerMaster case!!

    It wasn't so much about the looks, although I do personally like the lambo (I think lambo's should be a little more 'out there' design wise), it was more about the tech involved in making it.
    I quite like the 'retro mod' trend for cars at the moment too, the issue is that by the time they hit market they've been tamed down in most cases.

    Definately going to say CPU's from AMD really has rocked out this year, they give us what intel has failed to provide us for years and better too more bang for the bucks instead of slight increasements and sell a body part on the black market to be able to keep on affording from intel... now we just need the same bang for GPU market and the circle is complete, yet though in the GPU market I wish for a more neck to neck... so the prices go down... we get good products.... and whether going team red or green not so much of matter, also compatibility

    It's definitely pretty and I do like it... I just wouldn't want to own it!!
    TBH, the Peugeot suffers similarly, albeit less so. My issue is that much of its content will not make it to the final version, and likely including the features I actually like.

    Re: QOTW: What was the best tech product of 2019?

    That Lamborghini Terzo Millennio are hideous, like most other modern sports cars are IMO.

    I would however spend that kind of money or more on a very good looking classic car, but that leave out LAMBO cars as when you get back to the good looking ones from that brand, then they are not really that kind of money to buy.
    SO ! i would have to focus on other brands, and probably a car made in the 60ties just like myself.

    A 33 stradale would do me just fine, but then i have to max out the euro jackpot solo :-)

    Pretty much the Zen 2 product line, no? Quite literally the biggest paradigm shift in the CPU industry at almost every level since Sandy Bridge.
