  1. I remember I was absolutely trash at the battle plaza, but it was pretty fun.
  2. I thought the high failure rates was something that was disproven.
  3. I think people are forgetting the main point of the original post. It was that it's a shame that USPS isn't starting out with a higher percentage of electric vehicles, not that USPS isn't going all-electric. There are plenty of edge cases and difficult situations where an ICE vehicle could be better (at least for now), but for large portions of urban and suburban areas in the US, an electric vehicle makes plenty of sense. Nobody expected USPS to go all electric from the get-go, it's just disappointing they didn't start out with a higher percentage of electric vehicles, considering a lot of pla
  4. Am I stupid or is this math wrong? 20 post offices/day * 365 days/year * 4 years = 29200 post offices 29200 post offices / 1 post office/day / 365 days/year = 80 years OR 1 post office/day * 365 days/year * 31000 years = 11315000 post offices 11315000 post offices / 20 post offices/day / 365 days/year = 1550 years So do we have 29200 post offices or 11315000 post offices? I'm going to take the smaller figure since if you use 11315000 post offices as the correct number, both rates will take over 1000 years to implement. If we use 2920
  5. Well, seeing as this is a "100-day review" and doesn't actually break any soil, I fail to see how this is a problem. As for outsourcing production and insourcing cheap slave-wage labor, I fail to see how you could do both. If you outsource production, there isn't any demand for labor. If you insource cheap labor, there is natural incentive to insource production due to lower labor costs. Building fabs in the US builds production with the incentive to hire cheap labor. Even if you look at it from the "politicians" point of view, it doesn't make sense to do both, unless you believe that politici
  6. If the whole world is going insane, then its completely within the realm of possibility that the Indian Government can think totalitarianism can be a successful endeavor, especially if they think it's best for their country.
  7. Really? That's pretty sad for something that's supposed to be competitive with any of Apple's processors from the past 2 years.
  8. Very true. Both sides of the argument on Tesla are pretty spot on imo. They are definitely not that profitable right now, but they also have vast potential. I'm thinking another decade before Tesla blooms or withers to their lofty expectations.
  9. I mean in this case, the interests of the big corporations are actually in line with the interests of American consumer, which is reduce reliance on East Asian semiconductor supply lines and have some increased semiconductor supply that is not completely dependent on Korea/Taiwan.
  10. I guess my plan to not buy hardware until 2022 has paid off. Maybe by 2H or 3Q 2022 AMD and Nvidia can solve some of these supply issues.
  11. Building an good, viable competitor to CUDA is like building a good viable competitor against x86. It took years of development by the largest companies in the world, thorough planning, good execution, an amazing software ecosystem, and a large, loyal, profitable fanbase. It's very grim since the whole industry practically runs CUDA as a standard. Why go with something that is new, unproven, and not even as performant?
  12. Yeah, I think if Apple released a VR focused chip based off of their current architectures, with their hardware and software being hand in hand, it wouldn't really need any stupidly powerful GPU in order to run things other than VR gaming. Maybe more professional or prosumer workloads for the first iterations.
  13. I don't know if it's the Aussies themselves that actually want this issue addressed. Looks to me its more like Australian media corporations lobbying their government to legislate in their favor.
  14. Another case of YouTube's reporting system and algorithm failing for everyone except the top 1% of channels (even then being a terrible experience) and being easily abused.
  15. I'm not disagreeing, I'm just rationalizing reasons that the current administration has put these tariffs in place and future ones might still employ despite it not being effective. I'm aware tariffs in general are not a good tool for much of anything and I agree that especially in the case of US tariffs on China, its pretty pointless. It's not like there are currently tariffs against China for no reason, its just the reasons given are flimsy as hell.
