    NVIDIA Warns of Headwinds Due to Lower Gaming Revenue in Preliminary Financial Results

    Many businesses saw Covid lockdowns cause a huge surge in sales and like idiots they extended the line on the graph for another 5 years. Now that people are going outside again they are scratching their heads at the downturn in sales. Top Men

    This is not about NFTs but if you fall for a phishing scam you were not hacked. No security in the world can save you if you give your keys to the thief.

    It was just an intro macroeconomics class. When the professor of the class wrote an equation on the board and then graphed it he began talking about the slope at various points. I raised my hand and asked him why not just use the derivative of the equation. When the other students started to...

    Well sure, it works both ways. Investors can think a company has intrinsic value were there is none and investors can pass on companies that they think have no intrinsic value that become big successes.

    I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics and a graduate degree in engineering but I took a class in economics. I have a low opinion of economists for a wide range of reasons that is way off topic. Milton Friedman is a Nobel prize winner, what do you think of him? BTW Not all expertise is...

    Sigh, I never said the stock market has no value, stop claiming that I did. But you seem unwilling to admit that there is amazing wrong with it. That companies can be over valued, that their stock market value can go to zero, that those companies have no intrinsic value, and because of that...

    There is a good way to determine how relevant RT is now, hold a survey that asks people buying a new GPU how important RT was in their decision. I'm sure that study has been done.

    My point is that the stock market is extremely flawed. What once was used as a means to finance a new or a growing company has now become a plaything. The stock market as designed was an extremely useful tool. However, it is now filled with speculators (i.e. gamblers) that ruined the...

    I think NFTs are stupid but there IS a way to justify them. The art market is just as phony but the notion that I can prove that I own the original is the same. Just as you can sue and prosecute people that deal in forged art people will sue over NFT ownership. Here is legal analysis on that...

    My analogy is not perfect so let me try to improve it. I could pay an expert forger to reproduce an art masterpiece to the smallest detail that would fool most people but an expert could tell the difference. While on the surface it is true that there is no difference between the JPG that your...

    Apple sure, but ask people that invested in Enron or Theranos. There is way too much speculation in the market and many companies' stock valuation is way over their true value.

    Funny but that is true to life. Many art masterpieces are lent to museums so you just own the certificate of authentication and people can buy an exact replica in the museum gift shop. Remember something is only worth what people will pay for it. If I can sell an NFT for a million dollars and...

    Just to play devil's advocate the NFT concept is not unique. Take the art world. Only one person can own Van Gogh's The Starry Night but hundreds of people can own high quality reproductions and thousands can own prints but the original will still retain its value.

    The Streamline is a Lie

    I believe his claim was Mantle finally forced Microsoft into launching DX12. The fact that Microsoft was working on that behind closed doors and released it only after AMD announced Mantle still can be true.

    $199 Totaltech Paywall Helps Scalper Snag 20+ GPUs From Best Buy

    Maybe you can answer a question that I have had for a long time. I often see USED items on Ebay selling for MORE than the price of NEW items in stores. Are Ebay users stupid, lazy, or is there another reason (maybe shipping or non availability of the item where they are located) ?

    3090 Ti RTX FE release date

    Well the 3090 Ti RTX FE will be just as impossible to get as the 4080/4090 so if you are going to tear your hair out trying to buy the 3090 Ti RTX FE you might as well wait 8 months and get the better card. Besides supply MIGHT be better by then.
