  1. Six months? Alder Lake isn't scheduled to go into volume production until the second half of the year, assuming there are no delays. If it even manages to launch this year it won't be until Q4, maybe super late Q3. 2022 is entirely possible for Alder Lake at this point.
  2. Basically, Intel has to. They need to keep investors happy and the only way to do that is to keep releasing product. They also need to appease system integrators and retail parents. Not to mention that simply not releasing Rocket Lake would mean tens of millions of dollars just flushed down the toilet from a completed design never being used. Plus, these things will sell. With AMD’s stock still being rough and the Intel name, Rocket Lake will push units. It will give them time to, hopefully, get something competitive to market. Leaving the market bare for an entire cycle would be disastrous.
  3. I appreciate the summary and that it super shitty of Amazon. From a customer perspective, a good refund policy is great but, really, what's the purpose of having a refund policy THAT "generous". It almost feels as if Amazon designed it intentionally to screw over publishers and allow them to keep money with no risk. At max, the refund policy should be 90 days or after you've finished a book whichever comes first. And the publisher should only shoulder their portion of the refund. Amazon's policy here is so bad that I even feel bad for the shitty major book publishers, not to mentio
  4. Replacing screws is a band-aid, not a fix. Especially as they don't issue warnings with new versions of the case not to use metal screws. Nylon screws are incredibly prone to breaking or stripping. Given how long cases are in service for, there is every chance a nylon screw could break or get replaced down the line. NZXT is doing the absolute bare minimum possible to "address" the issue, without actually fixing a damn thing. I mean, fuck, the only way anyone would even know about this issue was if they saw it reported on social media or were following tech news. It is NOT the user's responsibi
  5. Concerns are valid here, but I think the fact that certain politicians were first in line for It should speak to how confident they are in it being safe.
  6. Facebook doesn't count as research. There are definitely concerns, but I see absolutely nothing wrong with mandatory vaccinations (with exceptions for the incredibly small group of people that can't get certain ones). For COVID they really do need something that can't easily be faked. I don't think an app on a phone is a great solution though.
  7. You can always leave if you don't like it. The forum has rules. They're plainly stated. Deal with it. On topic: Eh. Outside of them screwing up the FAQ and not saying they were changing lines this is a whole lot of nothing. The devs weren't happy with the lines, they changed them to something they liked better. Meh. Don't see any reason to get all pissy and worked up over a few line changes when it was the original developers themselves choosing to make the change.
  8. I'm not going to jump to conclusions, but there is a lot of stuff going on with MSI right now that is VERY suspect. That said, I hope no one got hurt (or worse) from the fire.
  9. That's why you back up important things BEFORE there is a need to do data recovery. There really isn't an excuse for people not to have some kind backup for important data in this day and age. This has been a common sense for decades.
  10. Don't get exposed? Do you know how easy to is to find people's information these days? Especially if that person is even remotely known. You don't even have to do anything wrong yourself for your information to be out there. MS wouldn't handle this themselves. It would be up to Rare's community team. As for the "streaming service". HA! No chance. Twitch will prioritize making their big partners happy over anything else. They only care about ad revenue and refuse to punish big streamers for anything, unless it becomes unprofitable to continue ignoring it.
  11. The quality of EVGA's RMA refurb units can be suspect at times, but I've never had a single problem with their CS and getting stuff replaced if needed.
  12. Nintendo generally doesn't seem to mind the open source projects existing. I imagine they keep tabs on them and use their findings in order to patch security holes in their systems. As long it's kept open source, free, and as long as the community at large remains anti-piracy their existence seems to be tolerated.
  13. And what's thew price of other consoles in South Africa? Why do people always assume that a supposed (it might not even be the final price) in one country means something will be the same price in all countries?
