Police Bust Bitcoin Mining Operation

So, the police thought they were raiding a cannabis factory, based on their clues and knowledge. It turned out the facility was a bitcoin mining operation with more than 100 computer units. As they were stealing power from the local grid, it was illegal, but at least they weren’t growing Cannabis.

How to Choose Great Coffee

I like to have a proper coffee break. A bit of ‘me’ time with a nice cup of mocha or cappuccino always makes my day. This video can be a good starting point for anyone who isn’t into the world of coffee yet. Here, in Hungary, there is no real tradition of it. Of course, we drink espressos, cappuccinos or lattes, but more for the caffeine and not for the pleasure. It is changing now, however.

The Lost Symbol Trailer

I liked this trailer very much. Dan Brown is one of my favourite writers, and I’m looking forward to seeing this movie!

Immaterial Sculpture Sold for 15000€

When I read the article, I was like, ‘WHAT?’. Salvatore Garau sold an immaterial sculpture for 15000 euros. How much would you pay for nothing?This is incredible. I read another article where a chicken nugget was sold on eBay for 100000$ because it was shaped like an Among Us character. Who pays that much for nothing? Why???

Chip Manufacturing

It is a very interesting video about chip manufacturing. I can recommend it to everyone, no matter the hardware experience. Microchips are the foundation of modern life, we use them everywhere: in cars, computers, mobiles, TVs and even in doorbells these days.
