Fry’s Electronics has finally shut down. At the stroke of midnight on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, the website made it official with a front-page memo. After 36 years in business, Fry’s Electronics ceased operations for 31 stores in nine states. Management blamed online shopping and COVID-19 for this sudden but not unexpected shutdown.
But online shopping and COVID-19 didn’t kill this zombie retailer.
An earlier announcement took place the day before. Planning documents filed with the city would turn the San Jose headquarters store into a tech campus. If you watched my previous videos, real estate deals resulted in store closures in the last 18 months. This real estate deal was so big that it shut down the entire company.
You just jumped off the Battle Bus in FortNite when the loading screen reappears. A moment later, you get an BattlEye (anti-cheat) error screen for Corrupted Memory #0. No how many times you restart FortNite and/or reboot your PC, you continue to get this error message. If you have an MSI motherboard inside your PC, this is a simple fix. Uninstall the Dragon Center/MSI SDK software and reboot the PC. You shouldn’t get the error message after that.
NOTE: If you need change the Mystic Lights (RGB) in the future, install the Dragon Center/MSI SDK software, make changes, uninstall software, and reboot.
On February 18, 2021, NASA’s Perseverance Rover landed on Mars. This is the first rover with WORKING microphones to record the sounds of its own landing. While NASA presented a picture perfect landing in its official video, the audio in this video reveals a different story.
Last year I posted two videos about the Be Quiet Pure Loop AIO 240mm Liquid Cooler. The first video I had to mount the AIO with the fans on the inside of the Cougar MX330-G ATX case. The long screws that came with the AIO weren’t long enough for the recessed screw holes in the front panel. The second video I used 20-year-old motherboard spacers to mount the AIO and the fans in the front of the case. Mounting the fans in front frees up space inside the case and RGB fans can shine through the front mesh panel. Since Be Quiet doesn’t make RGB fans, I got the Phanteks Halo Lux RGB Fan Frames to go on top of them. I’ll compare the RGB lighting on the white Shadow Wings 2 fan against the black Pure Wings 2 fan that comes with the AIO.
In a previous episode of Front Page Tech, host Jon Prosser accidentally set his house on fire while trying to stay warm during the cold. His fiancé, Corina Garcia, comes to his rescue with a fire extinguisher and asks if he can do the show without burning down the house. This is the #ToiletSquad edit.
My first impression of the Black Sugar Vanilla Milkshake at Shake Shack. The milkshake is black sugar and vanilla frozen custard, topped off with whipped cream and black sugar syrup. Contains milk and eggs and 960 calories. Black sugar is healthier than regular white sugar. Not any sweeter than the regular vanilla milkshake. The overall flavor tastes like French vanilla.
In a follow-up tweet, he’s doing fine, his team’s safety is a priority, and he forgot how to operate a camera. We are one year into the coronavirus pandemic and he’s only now social distancing his studio?
