    So they admit to try to manipulate how something looks to make it seem better than it is. Manipulation is manipulation.
    Regardless if they admit it or not, glad they got banned.

    Of course it was entirely intentional, the dev is just salty that Valve reacted this quickly. I am one of the people who reported the dev a couple of days ago.

    IMO it's deserved. They clearly knew what they were trying to do. The saying of "play stupid games, win stupid prizes" really rings true here.

    matrix07012 reacted to GoodBytes in ChromeOS surpasses MacOS/OSX market share. Now second most used OS in the PC space.   
    Sure, if it makes you sleep better at night. In my opinion, it has been modified so much that Linux part is nearly unrecognizable in the user desktop perspective.
    ChromeOS addresses a mass number of issues that the Linux community has been very against in tackling (at least in all big distros). If they did, maybe a Linux based OS (not modified to a point of being unrecognizable, I mean), could probably be more used than Windows. But anyways, that is of course, just my opinion.

    The fact that these digital currencies appear SO volatile just makes me trust them even less.
    All it seems to take is one man and a news article to rocket the price.

    I wish they would stop pushing wireless charging, it's just a stupid idea. It's wildly inefficient and barely any more convenient than its wired counterpart.
    Also I would be surprised if this ends up working as intended, the physics are just not in its favor.

    Bad bot but at least they resolved it quickly and hopefully they updated their bot to take more context into account than just looking for lone words. Also I'm not surprised that extension came from the anime subtitle community.

    matrix07012 reacted to itrr14 in YouTube has deleted SemperVideo, a 13 year-old educational German IT channel   
    YouTube has deleted SemperVideo, a 13 year-old educational German IT channel, after they received three strikes against their channel for questionable reasons. SemperVideo had a wide variety of tutorials ranging from Raspberry Pis to Samba.
    The first strike came from a video where SemperVideo showed viewers how to install a VPN using the command prompt and the reasoning for the strike was "showing hacking instructions" (Source). The second strike came when SemperVideo uploaded a video showing how to access a "hidden" Windows 10 2004 start menu, which involved importing a registry tweak. Their official blog post about the situation can be read here. (This was using Google Translate).
    This isn't the first time a channel has been striked due to teaching "hacking". The Verge made an article in 2019 about Null Byte who received a strike for using Wi-Fi to launch fireworks for July 4th, which YouTube later said was a mistake.
    From SemperVideo's Too Dangerous for YouTube (translated):
    Team YouTube has responded on Twitter:
    My thoughts
    This is concerning as there are countless tutorial videos on YouTube that involve using the command prompt or making registry tweaks, with such as LTT and Level1Techs.
    The Twitter post by Team YouTube doesn't bring much hope as SemperVideo mentioned in his video post about their first strike and how they were assigned a specialist to analyze the reason for the strike, and it was upheld.

    matrix07012 reacted to Nineshadow in NVIDIA to reintroduce the RTX 2060 series into the market   

    Among the GPU shortages of these days, NVIDIA has plans to reintroduce more RTX 2060 and 2060 Super cards into the market, even though the 3060 is planned to be released next month.
    The prices are expected to hover around 300 EUR for an RTX 2060 and around 400 EUR for an RTX 2060 Super (in France).
    My thoughts
    I've wanted to upgrade my GPU for quite a while now, but I, like a lot of other people out there, don't want to spend a big amount of money on a GPU. Right now, most mainstream video cards, such as the 1660 super or the RTX 2060, are either out of stock everywhere, or sold by scalpers at insane prices. The only cards that I see available are 600+ Euros and that leaves a lot of budget gamers with no GPU options.
    This news brings some hope of finding a decent GPU at a reasonable price. However, it remains to be seen if it will be effective. The new GPU stock could be gone really quickly, or it could be sold at inflated prices.
    On the other hand, this also hints at issues with the RTX 3060. NVIDIA might not be able to release it on time (unlikely), or NVIDIA has issues with supply and their partners won't be able to sell them at launch price (likely). Considering the new stock of RTX 2060 Super is expected to cost more than the MSRP of the RTX 3060, I think it's the latter.

    matrix07012 reacted to Kilrah in Nvidia Fixes Their Driver Issues (it's not just AMD who has driver issues)   
    I don't see how the comparison with AMD makes any sense, fixing security issues is good but that's not something users will notice or usually care about unlike crashing and non-working drivers where people aren't able to use their GPUs correctly...
