    Tips for interview preparation

    You need to spend some time learning about the company! There are lots of good interview prep videos on Youtube - check them out.

    GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080? Or should I wait

    I totally agree. Get an old used card for now if you must. Give it a few months and see what happens.

    GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080? Or should I wait

    Pascal cards are getting very old. I would wait, personally.

    gtx 970 enough for 144hz 1080 p ?

    Your setup will do OK. A lot of people think you have to be pinned at 144 fps to fully enjoy your display. Not true. You'll adjust settings to get a satisfying balance of quality and speed. Your next upgrade should probably be CPU

    Apple sells fewer iPhones, but profits rise.

    I have no issue with luxury products. But the reason Apple profits are soaring while sales are diminished is because their markup on the iPhone X is massive. Yes, it's a good product and worth of a high price, but currently the price is astoundingly high, and people are still going for it. Smart business move (in terms of turning a bigger profit), but it only makes me dislike Apple.

    lol this is not surprising. iPhone X is a RIP OFF!

    Now even YouTube isn't safe from cryptocurrency miners

    Lol this is hilarious and so clever!
  8. This is great news! This way the market will provide it better and cheaper. Awesome.
  9. I think the whole point of his video was to call foul on PCper's practices. Are you suggesting there is more context that AdoredTV missed, and that PCper did not do anything wrong?

    Loot Box Regulation Bill Introduced by Washington Senator

    I'm definitely with you on that. Loot boxes are the worst and the trend can't die fast enough!
  11. That is a fair point, but there is constant temptation to push the line of impartiality for financial gain. Thus it is with journalism in all industries. The more reputation you build, the more you can cash in on it. Many of the big media outlets (CNN, NYT, etc) struggle with the same thing. In many cases, their entire business model is based on building a viewer facing brand that convinces viewers they are trustworthy, while behind the scenes they don't give two seconds thought to actual ethics.

    Loot Box Regulation Bill Introduced by Washington Senator

    Fine, I'll grant you that point. But what does it have to do with the government? What legitimate role could government possibly play here? Should they now be responsible to regulate video game content production? In so doing we would find prices skyrocket, quality diminish, innovation stifled.
  13. Shrout made serious errors. AdoredTV caught him and published it. Shrout should have taken this as an opportunity to clean up his work and improve. The work AdoredTV is doing is messy but necessary. He is becoming the Project Veritas of the tech industry.

    Typical. Government officials just can't keep their greedy paws off anything cool or interesting. That's a nice little game feature you got there, it'd be a shame if something were to happen to it...
  15. It's up to the game devs to control cheating. Throwing video game cheaters in prison is pure communist evil.
