Black Knight: Affordability improves for first time in 16 months | 2019-08-29

After months of declines, home affordability finally improved in July, according to the latest data from Black Knight. The national affordability landscape improved in July after 16 straight months of declines, according to a first look at the Black Knight Home Price index, which will be released later this month. The improved affordability is due to falling interest rates, which worked against rising home prices. But while home prices increased, the rate of increase slowed, Black Knight data showed. Home prices increased by 0.34% monthly in July, and rose 3.9% from July 2018. July’s home price increase marked the 87th consecutive month of annual home price growth. In fact, July’s HPI shows year-over-year home price growth in all 50 states as well as 99 of the 100 largest U.S. housing markets. The chart below shows the rate of home price appreciation has been steadily decreasing since the beginning of 2018. San Jose, the most expensive market in the country, was the lone exception; home prices there were down 6.4% year-over-year. Another report released Wednesday by CoreLogic showed home prices in the San Francisco Bay area fell 4.7% month-over-month in July and the total number...

Overclocking the Radeon RX 5700 XT: 2.1 GHz on Liquid Cooling

After testing the AMD’s new Radeon 5700 GPUs and Nvidia’s RTX Super answer, we are particularly happy about the value offered by the latest Radeons. While GeForce RTX boards still dominate at the high-end, the $400 5700 XT is very attractive at the designated price point. But what if we pushed the new hardware to its limits? Leveraging EK’s new Vector water-block for Navi we are about to find out, as they were kind enough to send one over right away for this test. In our day-one RX 5700 series review we noted that increasing the fan speed of the 5700 XT to an ear bleeding 100%, we could boost the GPU from ~1800 MHz up to 2050 MHz. Shortly after that, Igor’s LAB published an interesting piece detailing users’ findings on how it is possible to bypass AMD imposed overclocking limits at the BIOS level. Some simple yet genius Windows registry modifications allow us to circumvent AMD’s limits and increase the GPU frequency as high as 2300 MHz, while also increasing the power limit. Of course, the GPU silicon has to be good enough to do 2.3 GHz and sadly neither of our retail cards were capable to run at even 2.2 GHz. We saw the limit at 2.1 GHz which is still a ~18%...

That cramped narrow space. Those unsightly beige tiles. The mildewy marble sink and countertop from the

That cramped narrow space. Those unsightly beige tiles. The mildewy marble sink and countertop from the 1980s. Yes, my old bathroom has a long way to go before it’s worthy of Architectural Digest. So recently I decided to tackle the problem, flipping through books of wallpaper samples and perusing local contractor listings. It wasn’t long before visions of burly men wielding sledgehammers filled my mind. Instinctively I knew I couldn’t handle a gut renovation — much less part with the $9,000 to $15,000 the average bathroom remodel tends to cost. So I tapped a couple of savvy designers for their take on renovating on a budget. The challenge: bring it up to 2019 standards for under $1,000. Though I wouldn’t be able to swap every item — here’s looking at you, heinous bath tiles — I could at least improve the bathroom to the point of being able to tolerate it. Designers tend to think of fixtures as jewelry for interiors — they may not seem like a lot on their own, but they can totally change the mood of a space. Lexi Tallisman, a New York designer with Greyscale Interiors, recommends streamlining all the plumbing fixtures — “everything from the toilet flush handle to the faucet,” sh...

Microsoft OneNote vs OneNote 2016: Which OneNote Should You Use

Microsoft has created a mess with multiple Office products that mostly perform the same thing, but have different names. Case in point is OneNote. New Windows users are being greeted with two versions of OneNote pre-installed on their computer — OneNote and OneNote 2016. Users aren’t sure what’s happening with their favorite note-taking app. Which one should they use? While OneNote is not going away for sure, it points to the fact that Microsoft is making a lot of changes. Let’s see what they are and what they mean for us, the end-users. OneNote 2016 is the legacy version which comes pre-installed with Office 2016 suite of apps. Microsoft designed the Office 2016 for desktop. Meanwhile, Office 365 is a cloud version that works online. Microsoft released a new version of OneNote for desktop and calls it OneNote or OneNote for Windows 10. Microsoft wants to phase out OneNote 2016 eventually, and port most its features to the newer universal version. To give users some time to make up their minds and make the shift, Microsoft will continue to fix bugs and provide security patches for OneNote 2016 until October 2020. All new features are now added into the new OneNote. Office 2019 i...
