    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    I'm buying a big screen OLED TV before this. Next year, the good ones are going to be under $1K. Been waiting, ever since people dumped plasma for crummy LCDs.

    Seagate’s Second Gen Mach.2 Drives Are as Fast as SATA SSDs

    Thanks, I could have phrased my point better. I am aware Seagate started making SSDs. However, they waited far too late to get into the market and they still have very few options. They need to start developing more drives and marketing the hell out of them. Slash resources on traditional...

    Seagate’s Second Gen Mach.2 Drives Are as Fast as SATA SSDs

    You made a great point here, that I think people should see. Actuators are essentially what makes a drive fail and this has two. Also, I have used Seagate many times over, but there last batch of drives were loud, grindy and ran hot (8TB Ironwolf Pro?). Lots of reports of premature failures. I...

    Samsung 980 Pro 2TB Nvme drive 4 x 4.0 $179.99 @ Amazon and Microcenter

    Thanks for the add. I paid more for that for the 970 Pro awhile back. ^ that link didn't work for me. Spread the money around. BH Photo has it at same price with free shipping. Unlike Amazon, they also have the one...

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    I've been to that Microcenter. The one in Tustin/Irvine. Address on side of building. Those are diehards. No, I am not lining up for the 4080.

    Apple Sued for Allegedly Deceiving Users With Privacy Settings

    Only if you accept their products. US is fast becoming like China and people don't even care.

    The Chinese GPU Invasion

    ...or stealing engineers. Ya... no. China has been very guilty at it. They wouldn't even be competitive, if they hadn't stolen to the point where they are today. There was just an article on [H]ard about them stealing CPU tech. They magically made a 3 generation(?) leap to 7nm. Apparently...

    The A16 chip is expensive to make

    SMIC magically jumped to 7nm, of couse, ripped off TMSC again.

    It's Dead, Jim.......and by Dead I mean Stadia

    Isn't that the XBOX model? Google cut out the crappy console hardware. People buy into that ecosystem. Unfortunately for Google, latency made this DOA. Very true. "You will own nothing and be happy." Unfortunately, the invisible hand trumps this. The majority of people have already given away...

    Rumor: Google Stadia May Be Getting Shut Down

    Normally it's a short list (1), but when you have as much money as Google has to throw around, yes, they can throw alot of money into the failure fire.

    Guy buys a 3090ti from Amazon gets Sand instead

    I don't buy much from Amazon, because I don't want them taking over the world... something like Acme Corp, Weyland-Yutani, MomCorp or the McCandless Corporation (see if you can get all those references). My wife insists on keeping Prime and feeding the monopoly. The only things I buy from...

    Thanks. AT&T banned non-US variants by specific model number, presumably to remove your ability to remove their preloaded tracking software and potential spyware. The one I am selling is the Latin America version that has all of AT&T's bands, but is otherwise banned by them. They are not the...

    Guy buys a 3090ti from Amazon gets Sand instead

    He doesn't seem surprised... Even if the weight seemed off, I wouldn't have expected that. He could have opened the box from the bottom and put the sand in himself. Video never shows the bottom of the box. There is conveniently a sheet of paper underneath the card that blocks the view of any...
  18. S - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    Great idea. If handled by their normal ordering process it makes an easy interface for the average consumer. Edit: It literally just links you to Newegg.

    Paypal Changes?

    There used to be a website "" for that exact reason. That's how much they were loathed. PayPal sucks. Here are a few reasons: 1. Automatically refunding a buyer's money when the buyer lies about the item with no recourse for the seller. 2. Arbitrarily confiscating a seller's money...

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    I'm for crypto. ...but NFTs are stupid. The concept might make sense if there was one cryptocurrency and there wasn't the ability to simply copy the file and list it somewhere else - there is no uniqueness about them! Great, there is an ape at XXX block on the AVAX blockchain. What's to stop...
