Mac mini RAM upgrade kits undercut Apple

It would appear that the Mac mini from late 2018 is quite a bit more versatile, hardware-wise, than most other Apple products. Today the folks at iFixit revealed they'd been working on a set of RAM stick replacements for those delivered with the most recent Mac mini release. They suggested that they'd seen such opportunity when their community-made RAM replacement guide saw tens of thousands of hits in a very short amount of time.

OPPO’s next phone could have 10GB of RAM

OPPO’s next phone could have 10GB of RAM

It might not be long until the first phone with 10GB of RAM is on shelves. Though there have already been a couple of manufacturers rumored to be working on 10GB phones of their own, OPPO might beat them to the punch. That's what new regulatory filings suggest at any rate, but unfortunately, the first handset with 10GB of RAM may not be entirely new.

Galaxy Note 9 could have new 10nm 8GB LPDDR4X RAM

Galaxy Note 9 could have new 10nm 8GB LPDDR4X RAM

Samsung has been rather conservative with RAM in smartphones once it hit the 4 GB mark back in 2015. In fact, it was only last year that it added 6 GB of RAM to its flagships. It might be long overdue another upgrade and it may already have the silicon ready. The company just kicked off the mass production of its new 10 nm-class 16 Gb LPDDR4X memory and, considering the timing, it might very well be what’s inside the Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung announces industry’s first LPDDR5 RAM, ready for 5G

Samsung might be best known for its smartphones and consumer electronics but it might surprise you to know that its most steady and most profitable business as been from its silicon, particularly its memory and storage products. Samsung has admittedly been in the lead and it’s not trying to widen the gap even further with the industry’s first 8 Gigabit (Gbit) LPDDR5 DRAM, preparing for a future when 5G data connections and AI services are the norm.

Ram 1500 Classic is the old body style selling alongside the new

Ram 1500 Classic is the old body style selling alongside the new

Automakers are beginning to learn that just because they roll out a new body style of a vehicle that doesn’t mean demand for the old-style wanes. Nissan did that with the Rogue when it rolled out its new body style years back selling the old and new together. Jeep has done it with the Wrangler selling the Wrangler JK (the old body style) alongside the new Wrangler JL this year. Now Ram Trucks is doing this with the Ram 1500 Classic.

Truck fans will recognize the 1500 Classic as the old body style truck that was popular before the rollout of the new 2019 Ram truck. The Classic will be sold right alongside the new truck and presumably will be cheaper making trucks more affordable for the masses looking to buy. Ram says that the 1500 Classic is known internally as the DS model while the 2019 Ram 1500 is known as the DT.

Ram specifically says that the 1500 Classic is targeted directly at entry level and commercial buyers and that it is keeping the old truck on to not "walk away" from those two buyer categories. Along with the old body style, the trucks will also feature a new "Classic" badge on the fenders. There will be four trims available with Tradesman, Express, Big Horn/Lone Star, and special services vehicles.

There are three packages for those trucks including Chrome Plus on the Tradesman with chrome bumpers, body-color upper front fascia, 17-inch wheels, remote keyless entry, and carpet. Tradesman SXT will be offered on the Tradesman trim adding chrome bumpers, body-color front fascia, 5-inch radio, fog lamps, dual exhaust for V8 models, and 20-inch chrome wheels.

An Express Black Accent package is available on all Express trim colors and has black wheels, black headlamp bezels, and black badges. 1500 Classic buyers can choose bed and cabs including Regular Cab with 8-ft. bed or 6-ft., 4-in. bed, Quad Cab with 6-ft., 4-in. bed, Crew Cab short bed (5-ft., 7-in.) or Crew Cab with optional 6-ft., 4-in. bed.. Both 4x4 and 4x2 models will be offered with 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine or a 5.7L Hemi V8. A 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel will be offered later. Ram 1500 Classic will launch in Q4 2018 with pricing unannounced for now.

What better, then, to challenge one fossil-fuel burning dinosaur than another: the Ram Rebel TRX Concept is going into production.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is proving “production hell” isn’t just a Tesla issue

The 2019 Ram 1500 is giving Fiat Chrysler a painful reminder that Tesla isn't the only automaker facing production delays, with the hotly-anticipated pickup failing to roll off the line at the rate hoped for. Revealed at the Detroit Auto Show 2018 in January, the new Ram 1500 borrowed a Model S-like huge touchscreen dashboard from Tesla, among other things, but unfortunately picked up its manufacturing headaches along the way.
