If you want to opt out of My Health Record, you have until tomorrow night to do so. An amendment was passed by the Senate today to extend the deadline to January 31st of next year, but I'm not sure when that actually becomes effective. Anyway, if you're wondering why you might want to opt out of receiving an automatic My Health Record account, read this article and this article, and consider the example of Singapore's equivalent being hacked earlier this year. You may have connectivity issues as there's a bit of a rush to opt out at the moment. Discussion continues in this thread.

Stan Lee, creator of many iconic superhero characters, has died aged 95. It's difficult to overstate Stan Lee's impact on popular culture. In the space of a few years, the comic author created a series of characters ó Spiderman, Hulk, and the X-Men, among others ó whose adventures were followed by generations of fans. More than 50 years later these creations, via the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), are driving hordes of people to movie theatres around the world. Discussion here.

TechSpot wondered about the recent Core i9-9900K reviews, particularly in regards to power ratings. So the problem we have here is motherboard makers for the most part arenít abiding by either of these power limits, instead they are targeting the clock multiplier table. You could say motherboard makers are cheating but we donít think that is it... we still feel Intel is cheating their own spec. There is simply no way all board makers did this on their own, what a mighty big coincidence that would be and surely Asus, MSI, Asrock and Gigabyte all work alongside Intel engineers to create their Z390 motherboards. Long story short, they have now re-reviewed it while adhering to the Intel spec.

Meanwhile the i9-9980XE has arrived, with reviews on HotHardware, Tweaktown, Tech Report and LegitReviews. Last month, Intel announced the "Basin Falls Refresh" for their Core X-Series HEDT processors. Seven new parts were announced with the flagship of the series being the Intel Core i9-9980XE 18-core, 36-thread processor that is the successor to the Intel Core i9-7980XE 18-core, 36-thread processor launched just last year. Architecturally, the Core i9-9980XE is very similar to its Core i9-7980XE predecessor, but is made on the latest 14nm++ manufacturing process. The improvements on this node along with the switch to solder thermal interface material (STIM) have allowed Intel to increase base/boost clock speeds.
