The LG V30 is shaping up to be a serious Note 8 competitor

LG has always been a bit of an oddball when it comes to smartphone design. Sometimes its designs are too wacky for the mainstream, others they’re too boring. Even the G6, which uses the oh-so-common metal frame and glass back look, was somewhat reserved compared to the competition. But the V30 actually looks pretty gorgeous. Ever-reliable leaker Evan Blass shared the clearest look at the device we’ve seen yet, showing it from virtually all sides. It looks like the G6 and S8 had a baby, but LG se...

Preserving electronics: vermin, leaky batteries, melting rubber, brittle plastics, dribbly capacitors, fungus and dust

Benji Edwards's guide to preserving vintage electronics is a fascinating look into all the ways that even solid-state gear can go off in long-term storage: a lot of stuff (batteries, capacitors and even rubber) can leak viscous, electronics-destroying liquids; plastics break down in UV light; mold and corrosion eat your gear from within; spiders, crickets and roaches make their nests in old gear; and of course, dust gets everywhere.
