It’s the hump day before a holiday weekend, which means it officially feels like time is moving the slowest it possibly can. There is one solution to speed things up, though: get a fast SSD for your PC or PlayStation 5.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but hear me out. You don’t want to spend your precious hours waiting on slow load times for applications and games.

That extra “pro” sale is a savings of $95 off MSRP, while the rest of us plebs are still saving a respectable $60.

That $10 discount is generally as good as it gets for the best streaming device you can buy right now.
Now, while this Chromecast does offer a lot of great features like an …….
