As much as I like to mock the Verge's PC build video, it was probably his first computer build. When I built my first PC I installed a Pentium 2 @233 without a cooler on it, thus burning it out within minutes of use. The first PC I bought had a Pentium 90Mhz in it and one of the updates was to flash update the bios which I always did whenever I reinstalled the OS. One time I got frustrated and shut off the PC during a bios update, thus bricking the machine.
That being said if this was the guys first PC and the Verge didn't care enough to watch his video for mistakes that's on them. Nobody was watching me or helping me build a PC for the first time so that's on me.
Right, but this was also supposed to be an instructional video. We all make mistakes, we all learn, and we’re all at different stages, but when you’re a large media organization attempting to produce what essentially is a tutorial, then you better make sure you get it right.
