Source 2: http://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc/3023-aib-partners-to-gn-yes-vega-price-will-change

  • Post by Gibbo of Overclockers suggested that launch rebates and MDF would be expiring from AMD for Vega

  • Gamers Nexus spoke to sources from different companies, and learned that the AMD rebate expiry and price jump is true

    • AMD provided top retailers and etailers a $499 price on Vega 64, coupling card with rebate to reduce the spend

  • Rebates were included as a means to encourage retailers to sell at a lower $499 price

Update

  • AMD has released a statement regarding the supply issues of Vega

“Radeon RX Vega 64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega 64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega 64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega 64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega 64 including the standalone cards and Gamer Packs over the next few weeks, and you should expect quantities of Vega to start arriving in the coming days.”

Maybe Americans don’t need fast home Internet service? FCC suggests

Source 1: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/819696-fcc-determining-us-ips-dont-have-to-provide-hardline/

  • By doing this, FCC could conclude that broadband is already being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion

The mere fact that Linus is having trouble using a MacBook Pro's multi-touch trackpad means I have to take a grain of salt for his future MacBook reviews.

@nicklmg Since the WAN show are sponsored by GFuel and Savage Jerky, I wonder if there's a coffee shop like Starbucks or a coffee brand like Folgers approched LMG for sponsorship? I know Starbucks will be unlikely to do any sponsorships but if in an unlikely event that they'll do, a Starbucks discount would be very cool. xD

CRTC is like: um you have to install fibre and let other companies use it also you have to share your mobile network with virtual ISPs and virtual mobile providers and you have to

 

also you can't throttle the speeds

 

 

 

also you aren't allowed to use any AWS on things other than 4G (also 3G for some bands) unless your plans are really cheap

The problem with streaming services is not having to remember all the logins.. or having 1 interface, thats an inconvenience but not a problem. It's the fuckin money involved. Now Disney will be charging 15.. 20 bucks per month, crApple will probably be 15 to 20,  HBO is 15,  Netflix is 10, Hulu is 10, this is 10, that is 10... by the time you are done you are damned near a cable bill if not exceeding one. Everyone trying to do the same thing differently is expensive, and the consumer is absolutely fucked as the content is pay walled.

That would be pretty legit - I would use the crap out of a Starbucks discount code too :) 

Doubt that would happen, but never know about Folgers etc :P
