What's funny is Newegg is now calling him.
This story is not done yet.

The part that I am most entertained by is that Steve is not stupid. He researches everything meticulously, sits on the facts and then lets a company just hang themselves over and over again with the same rope, just so he can pull out the next piece of data and refute the most recent excuse when it is clear they are doing PR spin and not addressing the root cause.

I've seen it in action. It sucks. Take a paperless workforce who is all currently working remotely. Now put all the tax documents in place where they can *only* be accessed digitally via a company front end that requires a company laptop and a VPN. Remove any ability to print documents from that laptop to any source other than PDF or an in office printer -- and then make the in office printer inaccessible.

Now, set up the MS365 system to flag any outgoing traffic that contains PHI on it (like a Social Security Number), and immediately after you do so -- migrate your entire payroll system over to a new software platform, thereby making sure that anyone who actually wants to file their taxes has to download their documents RIGHT NOW if they want to have them available for use.

How does this story end? Well, imagine hundreds of employees making PDF's of their personal W2 forms, and forwarding them to themselves at home...

I'm glad. The world-building and game-play were top notch, and it deserves every success given how much fun it was in spite of the terrible writing. I hope that this success allows them to bring on folks to help take the burden of script-writing away from the director and allow them to create stories around characters that have a little more depth to them, and don't leave you frantically trying to find a way to mute the dialogue in order to keep it from ruining the experience.

Now, don't be like that. Surely locking 5 series behind 5 different paywalls and on top of it you STILL GET ADS (on some of them) is exactly how you solve piracy! ;p

My personal favorite is when you buy a full season of a program from someplace like the Apple store or Amazon, and then the production company decides to hold back the finale a few extra days in order to drive people to their AMC Plus app.

TV piracy is up? I'm shocked! I wonder what could possibly be driving people to seek out media sources that don't require they pay obscenely large subscription fees to seven different sites in order to view content (often with ads) that they were previously able to view for free in a single convenient location (with ads) or for a reasonable fee without?

Not an upgrade to the card I got in 2019 -- but at the same price point as the card I bought in 2019. Underwhelming, but not insulting.

The internet didn't get anything wrong about the 6500 XT. It was trash, and they called it trash. And then they called AMD trash for selling it at that price point.

And this should be the end of Kotick's reign. It is extremely doubtful that Microsoft will let him stay.

First it needs to get approved, which may or may not go smoothly.

But if it does, in spite of the boiler plate 'we're leaving the existing management structure in place' language that goes into every company purchase/merger -- I give it 6 to 8 months tops before they quietly shove him out the door once complete.

I'm amused that someone engineered a 'mouse mover'. Whenever I'm running a long project on the work machine, and I can't afford to let it time out before the job finishes -- I just put it on the record turntable platter, weigh down the cord, and let it run at 33 1/3 rpm to keep the cursor bouncing around.

I'm shocked... SHOCKED that a brand new engineering sample that is not available on the market has outperformed a two year old chip that has already reached end of life status and is no longer being produced.

"Wheel of Time" Could Go For Eight Seasons.

And like the books, everyone will lose interest by the middle of Season 5.
