    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    And yet if they didn't have the data then they couldn't lose it. Ie. It's a perfect example of why zero trust is a thing.

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    Positions like this is how we end up with data brokers like Equifax handling tons of very sensitive data while having the databases connected to the internet and protected by the username / password combo of "admin / admin"...

    Gateway 14.1 and 15.6 1080p notebooks for $99 and $139

    Ebay has lots of good newly used stuff. I bought a laptop there for $189 shipped about 3 weeks ago. Dell 5400 with an i7-8665u, 16 gb ram, 256 ssd, 14 inch 1920x1080 ips, a good battery and charger. RAM was in single stick configuration so once it arrived I pulled the model number with cpuz...

    AMD B650 motherboards are now available, pricing starts at $159

    Wrong. 2019 wasn't over a decade ago. Order Details Ordered on February 17, 2019 The board was cheaper elsewhere, I just wanted to get it all in one shipment, but it was below $95 back then through non-amazon stores.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    No thanks. I'll just opt out and keep my 1070. Just because I have money to spend doesn't mean I'm going to be stupid about it and overpay. They can take their robbery prices and stuff them you know where.

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    Oh well, sounds like their problem, not mine. At the end of the day they need my money more than I need their luxury item. I have a list of interests longer than my finances allow, so I just cross off PC gaming and do something else, no skin off my back. I still say this whole thing is...

    Gamers Nexus investigates Rise and Fall of Artesian Builds prebuilt PCs

    That's ridiculous on the face of it alone, not saying you are lying, but it is ridiculous. A bit of common sense should prevail here. If it's a facility that *only* produces new goods or whatnot, then it's likely the contents/products inside the facility are all owned by the business and would...

    Gamers Nexus investigates Rise and Fall of Artesian Builds prebuilt PCs

    How the hell does a company get the balls to tray to sell things that don't belong to them? Like, if a auto repair shop folds up while my car is there they don't have the legal ability to sell my vehicle to somebody else.

    JustGPU.com - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    Yes, but they were also doing a lottery to try to keep a couple people from sucking up all the cards. Doesn't excuse the extras thing, but still...

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    This isn't a typical market though. Hordes of used cards are available now. Way more than in the past. The value depreciation of a card (new or used) this cycle is greater than in the past. If they don't want to go 50% off MSRP, that's fine, I'll keep my money and they can keep their card...

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    100% They can go to hell. Cards available for MSRP? Who cares, it's 2 year old tech at this point. I'll buy a "new" 3000 series at 50% off MSRP, otherwise go jump in a river. I'm not going to pay MSRP for old tech, end of story. You (nVidia) abandoned us gamers for miners, so why don't you...

    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.
