Guys anyone up to speed regarding if this purchase is linked to your account and what it means if you want more Decks say a year later?

I was one of the first getting this reserved. At first I wanted it for myself, then I went into the drone cinematography business which I'm in the middle of investing in atm, and now I don't really want to waste my money on a next gen Atari Lynx. So I am thinking of buying it for a buddy of mine but I don't want to shoot myself in the foot.
Probably the same thing that happened with the Index. You may have to wait a period of time until the pre-orders are fulfilled before ordering another Steam Deck, but eventually (ignoring chip shortage) you should be able to order another.

Hah! How much do you think you should be paid for playing video games? This isn't real QA like you see with security/military HW/SW. When you can ask any schmoe on the street if he wants to test games for a few hours for minimum wage you'll have zero shortage of people for that. Hell they can get online volunteers for nothing. Essential role? This isn't a skilled trade. Looks like the QA department at Raven is done.
That's a pretty short sided view of testing in games. People should be paid their worth, and respected. No matter the role. Have you ever heard of an SDET Cutter?

Nintendo has nothing to do with Kingdom Hearts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_Hearts
Sure it's been on some Nintendo handhelds, but Square Enix, Square, Jupiter, h.a.n.d., BitGroove Inc., Success, indieszero that have worked on the games. They have worked out some license agreement for the properties from Disney.

The full list of Super Nintendo games available on Switch Online are as follows:
Brawl Brothers.
Breath of Fire.
Demon's Crest.
F-Zero.
Joe and Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics.
Kirby's Dream Course.
Kirby's Dream Land 3.

Blizzard to fans:
Do you guys not have Cell Phones?
Do you guys not have Free Speech?
Do you guys not have other games to play?
Do you guys not have brains?

I'm way less interested in Diablo after Immortal was announced. for a couple reasons: The way they treated fans, and they way they treat Diablo 3 players and fans.

I am glad I decided to not go to blizzcon this year, i'm usually super excited to go, last year kind of took the wind out of my sails for this year. the more recent stuff just made it apparent that I made the right choice for me. (I bought the virtual ticket before the most recent crap)

How can this even be considered a step back? It's along side BfA. (Battle for Azeroth: latest retail expansion)

If they shut down the latest stuff, I could see that be steps back.
One subscription for more. PCWorld c'mon.

Sometimes just being able to talk about trauma at all is a start.
I haven't been in that situation but have dealt with other trauma, and once you can talk about it, it's easier to work through and move to action.

I think the show writers did very well for trying to tie up as many loose ends as they did. While it's not my favorite and I will be reading the books when they come out. They did a good job of providing a meaningful ending to this story.

There is plenty left that was not tied up, and I'm not sure if it's because George RR Martin wanted to write spin off series for these other characters or if he intends to continue to write more about them before finishing A Song of Fire and Ice.

Some of the characters outgrew this particular story, which I think is why they weren't mentioned as much / revisited in the TV show.

That anthem with dlss article might as well be a paid shill article. NVidia gave them a copy and a 2080ti.
The charts they show are 1-2 fps difference, but they're skewed so heavily it looks like it's a huge game changer. such bullshit.

I think it's important to note that the playing field is not level. Steam has had a huge time advantage (And they've begun to squander it by no longer curating the service.)
Exclusives (like HL2 / CS) propelled Steam to where the juggernaut resides in marketplace dominance.
Epic is trying to gain market share, and this is a tool in the box. It's not inherently evil or contrived, it's business.

Posit: If Epic Games Store becomes a level competitor to Steam it's likely to be best for everyone as they both will have to compete for market share.

How Epic reaches that point is an uphill battle with only Valve to lose ground. Arguably Valve has already opened the door on several fronts for this to happen.

4:3 monitors have their purpose. (emulation, portraits, flexibility for mastering content.)
This is the same old argument about widescreen vs fullscreen. artist creative intent and all that jazz.
There's also something to be said about reusing old hardware and repurposing it, rather than destroying it for no real reason.

Hyperbole battle go.

Why would Apple make these kind of statements publicly...is there a psychological strategy for doing so...or are they just stupid?

What do you want me to do for you Apple...cry you a river?

There's weak demand for anything a consumer feels is unnecessary or overpriced. DDR4 falls into this category also.

But instead of dropping prices and re-establishing good will between consumers the DDR4 industry wants to keep production low and keep selling at criminal prices.

I have a Samsung Galaxy phone that 5 is generations old now and while I've thought about going up a generation or two I don't really find it mandatory to do so.


They have a legal responsibility to report publicly to their shareholders.
from sec.gov:
The annual report to shareholders is a document used by most public companies to disclose corporate information to their shareholders. It is usually a state-of-the-company report, including an opening letter from the Chief Executive Officer, financial data, results of operations, market segment information, new product plans, subsidiary activities, and research and development activities on future programs. Reporting companies must send annual reports to their shareholders when they hold annual meetings to elect directors. Under the proxy rules, reporting companies are required to post their proxy materials, including their annual reports, on their company websites.
