  1. yopmail has almost 4 million monthly visits and over 70% are direct connects. I love that word of mouth websites still exist 

  2. You can buy all the JBL speakers off Alibaba for ~$23 and just slap the logo on but I wouldn't really call that fake either as that's exactly what JBL is doing
  3. LinusTechTips is all about clickbait content. They moved away from informational videos when they moved to the warehouse so most content you'll see is in your face over the top sponsored material. GamersNexus and Level1Tech provide videos with a lot more details targeted towards information rather than entertainment.
  4. I personally would get an ultrabook and then build a desktop for the dorm or at home. Gaming laptops have come a long way but they still sorta suck for college. Ultrabooks can do 100% of anything you will encounter in Computer Science or a Software Developer degree track. The only exception is if you are doing machine learning as you will need a high end Nvidia GPU and maybe lots of storage depending on your data pool. At which point you have your gaming PC in your dorm to use for that as I really wouldn't train on a laptop. The decision is up to you but for the same maybe ~$300 more you coul
  5. Gonna try and cop some nothing ears

  6. I hate internet censorship with a passion. 

  7. My friend gave me his 390 which looks like it is bent from GPU sag or something but there's a slight downwards curve. He said the only way to make it work was to bend it slightly in a specific way which he actually attached a string around the cooler shroud to make it work continuously without him holding it. When I plug it in the LEDs light up and the fans spin. I can also see the device in Afterburner but it says microsoft display adapter so I installed the AMD Adrenalin drivers which it did install so it was able to see there was an AMD device installed. But after installing the drivers I c
  8. Unigine heaven or valley, Firestrike, superposition, or cinebench R20
  9. There's essentially like 2 cooler designs AIOs use. They mostly are all Asetek due to some copyright dealio. I personally don't think Corsairs AIOs are trash. Maybe not top shelf but they are also inexpensive and have a hardware warranty
  10. I bet it's hell to work at intel. Hey that's sorta catchy but seriously, I bet managers are breathing down engineers necks demanding more yesterday and most just quit or find a job somewhere else
  11. You could try PXE if your system support it. Otherwise a CD will work too
  12. People are so angry I'm hyped for a titanium phone though. I loved when they introduced stainless with the X. It's one of the reasons I opted for the white phone and phone itself. So a squared titanium design will probably feel amazing in the hand and be incredibly scratch resistant.
  13. I think the shortage is about to get a lot worse. Internally at my work the ETA for new servers is January 2023...

      Yeah.

      Some supplier already give you dates for 2025. If you are lucky the shipment for µC are now in Q1 2021 for some parts you don't even get an estimated delivery date and fakes are now more then ever a problem.

      To make it clear the overall situation is horrible and serious problem will show up.

      I don't think it will be that bad as it's always using projections currently as you can't really predict the future. So I would imagine we will have a slow roll into a tipping point at which massive changes will happen to accommodate it and try and fix things.

      You can't predict but it is fair to assume that all of these price increases have and will be forwarded to the buyer. If the historic trend continuous the wealth gap will grow with all of the implications.

      For the decision makers this is an balancing act. On the one hand you have more demand then supply. On the other building new facility's takes time and by then there might no longer be that much demand.

       

      For the tipping point I don't know. A lot depends on consumer spending habits. Either there will be none/it goes smoothly or it will be as bad as with Covid vaccination where you shifted from waiting list to no appointment needed within a couple of weeks.
