COVID-19 Causes PC Demand in the US to Soar Back to 2009 Levels

Apple warns customers not to close its laptops with a camera cover attached. Though it might strike some people as obvious advice, Apple has published a support page that warns MacBook owners not to close their laptop with a camera cover in place. Damage like a cracked display could result, according to the company, because “the clearance between the display and keyboard is designed to very tight tolerances.” MacRumors spotted the advisory, which Apple posted on July 2nd.

Great sales for Persona 4. Hopefully that convinces Sega and Atlus to bring more Persona games to PC.

Looks like people got bored during lockdown and decided to use their PCs for something more than work. Or replaced their old ones that couldn't even do that.

I've seen people not closing their laptops but almost smacking the display into the lower part of it. That some are breaking them doesn't surprise me in the slightest. But Apple's may be more prone to break...

Wtf is going on with you Nvidia

Remember how AMD "stole" the X399 chipset for Threadripper when Intel had been using the X99 and X299? Well, Nvidia doesn't want any of that, so they've secured the rights to use those names in the future. Nothing surprising in that.

The text is a Chinese translation as you can see in the leftover Chinese text. As far as I know my Kanjis depending on context you can use the same symbol for both "very far" or "isolated" and "polar". I assume it's similar in Chinese. It might be a translation error or a word play.

Thank you.

They should have also trademarked "3070", "3090", "4070", "4090", "5070" and "5090" then, just to be sure.

Although it would be funny if AMD counters a "RTX 3080" with a "RX 3090".

It would be weird, but also stupidly amazing, to see AMD launchig a new set of cards going RX 6500, 6600 and 6800, with a striking 3070 in between just for the sake of it.

Took me way too long to figure out what's wrong here.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Erm... and how much was "way too long"? I'll admit that I didn't notice the first picture, but the second one triggered all the alarms.

Thanks for the reminder :) Tuning in for free game lol



Unless there's a lot of inventory left of Nvidia's 2xxx series, when do you think we should expect the new cards? My guess is around September like most rumors say.

And, I'll try to watch the Ubisoft conference, but not really for the game (I still have to play more than the 10-15 minutes of the first Watchdogs).
*Edit* Scrap that. It looks like there's a lot of people interested in either the conference or the free game, because I can log in to ubisoft nor UPlay.

I was wise in advance and logged in to uPlay hours before the stream started. Turns out it doesn't help at all, because when you try to open the stream in uPlay, it gets stuck trying to load the stream and opens the stream in browser instead. Of course I didn't think of logging in in the browser beforehand, so the stream in the browser is useless for getting the free game... Not exactly a good performance from Ubisoft, although I'm not very surprised.
