MSI 1070 TI $529 on amazon HOT
Not when a non-Ti was going for less than $350, when 1080s are as low as $550, and when Vega64 is less than $540.

Have you not heard of that murder case where they nabbed a suspect because their relative submitted a DNA test to one of these services? It wasn’t specifically government that got the data, it was easy to get for anyone because they sell it.
Looks like we have a serial killer in the house! Give it up for ... a serial killer!!!

The idea is that is just a very public example. One example. There are infinite possibilities of your DNA info being used that could happen without you knowing.... Beforehand.
Well, aside from all the illegal ones thanks to Canada's anti-distcrimination DNA laws... And the well documented "selling anonymized DNA data to drug companies to help gene therapy studies"... I'm curious what exactly you think they're going to do with your DNA?

looking for a source that implicates 23andme as the other poster suggested
Yeah, it wasn't 23andme or Ancestry. it was GEDMatch, per this post earlier:

that was with a GEDmatch which is a completely public dna database where people have shared their genome. and it required a lot of investigative work behind it to find relatives

I don't know what the 23andme policy is for privacy but the typical tests they do don't even sequence at that level of detail iirc

Can anyone recommend decent but not overpriced UHD 4K cables?

There's like 4,000 of them on .ca and unlike on .com, we can't filter by seller.

Doesn't get much better than Monoprice Certified Premium High Speed HDMI Cable
Monoprice is the only HDMI cables I ever bought that were defective - as in insufficient bandwith for 1080p back in the day of PS3. And multiples, not just one. I'd go for Amazon branded certified cables instead.

There's no such thing exactly, all recent HDMI cables are the same. If you got one that was 5+ years old then maybe you'd have a problem.

Got it. Yeah, last ones I bought besides specialty cable (USB C to HDMI and an adapter ) were probably years ago.

So AmazonBasics high speed will do?
