  1. If understand the above correctly, it's an extra $4000 per PSU and an extra $2500 per rebrand? Spread over the units sold over the product's life, it can't add that much?
  2. As an old geezer of 41, I probably remember the 90s better than most on here. The positives; Terrorism not much of a concern, we had the IRA in the UK, but they were moving towards peace by the mid 90s. The Western world has been on a Terror alert for 19 years now, so an easy win for the 90s there. No cameras on nights out, you can have more fun when you're not being recorded. Some people took disposable cameras out, but this was frowned on for a proper night out. Couch multiplayer gaming, N64 the king here. Tech didn't have to go in the bin just because securi
  3. When I watch videos like this I wonder, how is there anyone left alive in Russia?
  4. The 3DS XL is a bit big, admittedly still a lot smaller than a Switch. If I'm going out and I know I will have to kill some time I'll grab my DS Lite over my 3DS XL, just because the Lite fits in my pocket.
  5. It has been suggested that the PS5 and Xbox series has used up a huge amount of AMDs fab capacity at TSMC, causing the shortage of Zen 3 and likely 6800s.
  6. It will be fine, you will be boiling it for 10 min or so.
  7. Do they still make that? I haven't had a can of pussy for years. I don't remember it being that great, though not as bad as Redbull. My preferred energy drinks are some of the fruity flavoured Monsters. Pipeline Punch and Ripper being my favourites. Khaos was very nice too, but sadly seems to be discontinued in the UK. That said as a result of the great plague of 2020, I've been working almost exclusively from home since late March, and haven't touched a drop since then. The extra hour in bed, that would otherwise be spent commuting, is really helping me. I think I'm ru
  8. If you can just mash the throttle and let the car sort it out, it takes away skill and involvement and therefore fun. And sometimes it's fun to break traction, especially on corners. It's a great solution for most cars, but not lightweight sports cars which should be playful, rather than chasing the fastest 0-60 time, or fastest lap. It's like the RWD vs 4WD and the manual vs automatic (let's not restart that one, it's just an example) discussions. Just because something is measurably better, doesn't mean it's more fun.
  9. The whole point of a Caterham is that it's light weight, so a BEV would entirely miss the point. The Honda E, not a large car, is over 1500Kg! And that before you consider where you could put the batteries in the Caterham, it's proper tiny. Nor in a light weight sports car do you want abundant, instant torque, you'll just break traction. You want a low torque engine that produces power though high revs to give the driver the necessary level of control. EVs need traction control that cannot be turned off, which is not very sports car. Sure in a big heavy saloons/sedans or SUVs, EV d
  10. I guess like the 3000 series, it's been so long since a big GPU release. Combined with the 'optimistic' pricing of the RTX 20xx cards, there are a lot of people out there desperate for a GPU upgrade. Waiting to build inventory would have been nice, but I guess they really wanted them available for Christmas. It's disappointing, but not surprising.
  11. It's why houses have massively increased in value across the western world. Higher salary multiples on mortgages have increased, increasing buying power leading to higher selling prices. We're taking on more debt than previous generation did, to buy what are often smaller houses. But if you can't buy a house you're still paying rent past retirement. This may well be impossible as the rising cost of buying a house has brought the cost of renting one up with it, outpacing wage growth. Never taking debt is a nice idea, but unless you're born into a very rich family, or h
  12. Yeah, they still exist. Though at the cheaper end the market I'm not sure why. If you don't have room for a separates system a Yamaha, Denon & Cambridge Audio mini HiFi still makes a good substitute.
