iBurley writes in: “I’m looking for a good solution for a portable soldering iron. To be honest the butane ones seem oddly risky so I was hoping for battery powered, and I was wondering if you had any experience or recommendations.” We talk Hakko’s FX-901/P i battery powered soldering iron, rechargeable batteries, our fave butane model, and the best soldering station we know of!

Charles wants to know, “If USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0, why do MoBos (and PC case for that matter) still include USB 2.0 ports in the rear?” We talk about Intel’s chipsets, bandwidth, and why USB 2.0 won’t die anytime soon!
