    Walmart PC Price/performance

    Its a problem if the inconsistency is common enough because this targets people who don't know much about computers and they might not realize they paid too much for what they got (pay for gtx1080 and receive the 1070) but its good to make it easier on people to get their feet in the door cause Walmart is definitely more known by the common folk then iBuyPower or whatever other company that does all in one.
  2. It is for everything now. I gave up a long time ago trying to stop that. When you buy something at a store, those companies get informations too. Information is the most valuable currency since the 80s maybe because of computers that are capable of stocking one phone number to every detail of a person and for a lot of people.

    Marathon Gaming - Twitch under microscope

    Sure Bravado can be a thing for some people who have no self control. Like any kid in highschool who will chug alcohol to do like the other he thinks are cool. It just realy realy realy irks me when people start blaming the hobby or the vehicle of the problem instead of the person doing it. Because once that kind of thinking takes off, you start regulating and limiting/punishing those who aren't idiots. If he did feel sick/not good ... then I mean ... do you realy need a babysitter to tell you to go to sleep/eat? Its realy sad that it happened
  4. Pretty sure it is not just the haters that are the problem. Fanboys are as bad when they lose their mind in front of any celebrity.
  5. Value is not purely dictated by the end user. If you can find similar functions that works for cheaper, it is not the best value. The end user can buy whatever he wants, but don't tell me its always about the best value. Apple has a brand recognition and it will always sell more for what it is like Nike and all those brands. If you try to justify those price premium, you are lying to yourself. The only points I will agree on is that Apple stuff works and isn't pure crap but its rarely as exceptional as the amount of units it sells would suggest. Selling 2 millions units in under a month can't be related to careful purchases and cost analisys for the functions you get. Its a lot about hype. Hype shouldn't be a factor in any purchase but my view of things doesn't seem to apply to the majority so its only my opinion.
  6. Ill never understand the crazyness happening when something Apple launches. Its always overpriced, always just "ok" and people buy it ... in masses.
  7. You should never buy full price. Nowadays you can get game a lot cheaper a lot faster.

    NCIX a good place too shop?

    I buy most of my stuff on NCIX canada, never had unresolved issues. Some took a while but all ended ok. Customer support is their weakness for sure because someone I know had some problems with them.

    Star Wars: Battlefront 3 will run at 60 fps on console

    I hope its true ... but we all know that the truth can be streched a lot ... like adding black bars on top and bottom to make it "more cinematic" or whatever else to justify the reduction of the picture. We will see soon enough anyway.

    Jurassic World - Official Trailer

    Ill see it, but its a bit sad for the franchise because I don't think any Jurrasic movie can beat the first one.

    How to overcome "Must have the best" mentality?

    You have to learn self restraint. If it bothers you that much, you'll do it, otherwise you'll say "next time" like any junky does. Everyone has something like that. For me, its magic cards right now. I spend too much on that shit. Before that, it was games that I never played or completed and etc. My addiction changes over the time. You have to know when too much realy is. Other than that, who cares if its your only hobby and it makes you happy as long as you have the money, its fine. If you spend more than you can pay back (credit and all that) then you might have to consult professionals because no one on the Internet can make you stop spending your money if it goes overboard.

    About Death and Dying.

    I am weird, I fear death, yet I don't want to live forever or anything past 80. I think your quote from Hawking is pretty much what I think.
