    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Agree. Now also do what I'm doing. I won't buy a used card no matter what. Make them eat the hardware cost. It will discourage them from going bonkers again.

    Tarrifs Reduced on GPUs

    The answer to that is they can suck my toes... that way my heel will be in like with their throat.

    Frustrated Father Accidentally Takes Down Town's Internet

    Was going to say basically this. I have two kids. The rule is no "entertainment" electronics (laptops, tablets, phones, etc.) in the bedroom after bed time. Period. Non entertainment electronics are fine, ie. an alarm clock. It really is that simple. Set up a rule. Enforce it. Done.

    Bill Gates predicts our work meetings will move to metaverse in 2-3 years

    Like most things "internet", if it gets used for porn successfully then it will be successful overall.

    Was cautiously optimistic since they had a good long time to put this together (matrix 4). The caution was warranted. This movie was boring to the point I didn't even bother finishing it - Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    Ring me up when you can buy a GPU for a reasonable price. Until then - whatever.

    Who wants some? Shake it baby.

    Retailers Paywall Consoles, GPU's, Black Friday Deals Behind Expensive Annual Passes

    If you're going to charge me a fee beyond the cost of the product to simply shop at your store then I won't buy anything there. It's really that simple. Big one on that list is Target. They just lost all of my weekly business.

    What's a computer?

    Yeah, screw that literacy and writing nonsense. Who needs that anyways?! :whistle:

    What's a computer?

    Not surprising. This is what you get when your computing devices are "magic" and "just work". Kids get tablets and they use a touch interface to Launch colorful apps (not executable programs). They never interact with or even see the folder structure so why is it a surprise they don't know...

    Samsung makes Controller changes the right way

    Similar, the big difference to me is the Intel parts always seemed to get better - likely due to manufacturing process maturity, the products did not go backwards. G0 stepping was better than B3, but it came out after B3. Hard to complain about products getting better as time goes on...

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    I've soured on them somewhat. I had two 450 watt Seasonic Focus Gold +'s fail. No real power load on them, media center PCs without a dedicated video card so they had a pretty "easy" life, not cooped up in a closed box either so heat wasn't an issue. One at my home and one at my parents...

    Intel 12900K benchmarks leaked

    Meh, I'll stick with my 7700K. I did want to upgrade my MB/CPU/Video card but with the vendors chasing short term profits over prioritizing availability for long term customers, F em', I'll spend my money elsewhere.

    Right to repair executive order

    I'd replace the battery in my 3.5 year old phone and keep using it but i can't. Verizon att and tmo are shuting down their 3g networks at the end of the year. My phone uses 3g for calling and 4g for data. It doesn't support volte so my only choice is to get a damn new phone or not have voice...
