      [quote<]When going through the logs of the crashes, it seems that the reason behind the issue is T2 chip’s BridgeOS. [/quote<] Still blaming this on Intel failing to get 10nm products out this year.

      why would anyone cite wccftech? They’re the TMZ of the tech industry.

    There should be aquifers all over Mars if there is overwhelming evidence of surface water in the distant past.

      Does Mars have geothermal energy? If not, then I’m guessing that’s some pretty chilly water.

        [quote<]Does Mars have geothermal energy?[/quote<] By definition: no. But it might have [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_of_Mars<]areothermal[/url<] energy.

      Intel’s ice lake and Mars Ice lake have a lot in common….

      We hear about both and told that they exist…

      But we will never see either.
