Problem, poor starving people?

I really have to wonder about these tech magazines that constant spout unconfirmed nonsense. Like in the one talking about Gigabyte cards coming out, they consistently refer to the 3070 being faster than the 2080ti and I after looking at the 3080 test results that compared it to the 2080ti I have great doubts that it is true.
Personally I see the 3070 somewhere between a 2080 super and the 2080ti at best. Nothing worse than constantly spouting marketing nonsense.
One thing that is blurring these lines now is "traditional raster", "rtx", "dlss". Perhaps one can cherry pick a situation where the 3070 can equal a 2080ti. I no yesterday I read a lot of "NV lied the 3080 isn't x faster than a 2080TI", well in some cases it is.

Steam's latest hardware survey shows how unpopular RTX 2000-series GPUs are
The reality is: Not a lot of people have that sort of money spare for a video card.
Not really... it just shows that nobody wanted to upgrade from the 1xxx series.

It seems that the expected number of deaths from old age, heart attacks etc is way down this year, Because the dogwhistle is killing those people.
So the rise in the deaths isn't as large as some people are making out since those people would have died anyway. But its also not as small as the 6% that Trump is claiming.

This is really confusing, I thought AMD said Zen 3 was coming this year, this press release says Ryzen 4000 is still Zen 2.

Years ago, I used to work at a job that provided Aeron chairs for everyone. It was without question the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in, before or since. I've always wanted to get one of my own, but I could never justify the high price.
Before the pandemic started though, I was more seriously considering it. I was trying to decide between the Aeron and the Mirra 2. I know the Embody is supposed to be great as well, but it was always even more expensive, and since I've never sat in one, I didn't consider it.
During the pandemic I'm seriously considering it. Odds are I'll be working from home 2-3 days a week for the remainder of my life, just seems to be how every major company is planning right now. And I'll be working from home for the next 6, anyway. So may be worth the investment.

Facial recognition can't identify people most of the time, so thinking it can predict behavior of any kind, let alone specific behavior, based on an image of a face is beyond ridiculous.

There is not a single fucking thing preventing ANYONE else of any race, creed, color, or religion from going out and competing by starting their own business.
People who say “you mad?” and call others “snowflakes” got upset about an option in a video game for children.

Big, good, RPG's... only CD Project is making them. So imo they can take their sweet time to make them perfect. For me that's about the only games that are must-buys.

I don't think they could get away with just making up numbers with several multi-billion-dollar companies involved as sponsors.

Interesting choice of words, "unforgettable," as I seem to have all but forgotten my BioShock experiences to date....;) I own them all, but they're not that memorable.
Pretty much the only thing I remember about the first one was how I had already figured out the plot before the big reveal, and how I got bored with it and never finished it. I never played the second one, but somehow I own it on Steam. I got Infinite for free, I think it was a freebie for voting in one of those game award deals. It was as predictable as the first, but I did manage to finish it.

If EA got them? Not long. Not sure about XBox's track record on snapping up and ripping apart.

AMD Drivers still suck, that's a thing going back all the way to the ATI days in the dawn of the 2000's.
I still have to run Google Chrome and Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled. Because the drivers fucking suck.
But if you don't mind a few quirks then you certainly get a lot of power for your money.

It's an absolute pile of sh1t. I have nfi what use it is within the dev world, but if it works there then great. But for my day to day stuff, like migrating users into O365/FSLogix/new Citrix, or doing some app layering...how the hell does "Agile" help? I spent more time trying to fill "sprints" and "epics" in the sh1te that is Jira than doing the damn work. I left that place after 3 months (I'm a contractor).
When will the software industry just admit that Agile development is a crock of shit?
But then nearly 25 years in IT has me jaded about all this new fangled stuff like "Scrum", "Agile", "The Cloud" (I actually do Azure/Citrix/Nutanix...so, that last one is more an annoyance at the name tbh). Roll on retirement Now...back to Factorio
Maybe that's why Epic's Roadmap was cr@p too? "Agile".../smh
