    This vlogger asked for free accommodation (in return for "exposure") and when she didn't get what she wanted she (basically) told her followers to harass the hotel.
     
    The hotel's response is amazing though:
    lmfao, she got served.

    I bet that no retailer is going to do that, because: 
    Miners buy GPU for 2x more than their MSRP How are retailers supposed to know if the GPU is going to be used for mining or not?

    Quick reminder why Facebook is cancer.
    Most comments on a PUBG PC vs Xbox One X graphics comparison video:
    A good PC costs 8x more than an Xbox One X (Yes, 8x. So off the mark it's not even funny) The PS4 Pro has better graphics than the Xbox (Even though the Xbox One X has better graphics and you can't even get PUBG on PS4) Facebook comments are too damn stupid.

    Well, the awareness of Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities is still very very low in where I live. No one even knows what are they and they never update Windows and drivers (including BIOS). Most ppl only know how to USE a PC. That's all.

    You know in reality the whole mining craze isn't actually creating anything. We are building computers to just work really hard to spit out digital bits that represent a currency. And in the act of doing so, we have produced absolutely nothing of value while burning about a weeks worth of fossil fuels for a single crypto transaction to take place. At least with gold I can hold it, and use it as currency if the power goes out. Can you do that with crypto, hell no. 
     
    crypto mining is just a massive waste of energy IMO. It burns valuable fossil fuels while producing absolutely nothing of physical value. At least powering your house with electricity you can do things like turn on lights, run a stove and furnace, but crypto mining yields nothing. I can't eat, drink or use the crypto I mined as a source of shelter, so it is intrinsically worthless. 
     
    Also yes I know cryptocurrency can be used to heat a house, but that would make an extremely expensive space heater. A space heater so expensive it wouldn't be practical to run unless you know it could make money. 
     
    That being said I still know fiat currency isn't real either. But fiat currency doesn't consume astronomical amounts of power just to be used. If everyone used crypto, imagine how many miners there would need to be to keep up with the transaction demand? We would probably burn through all the coal, oil and gas on earth just to have some transactions verified. 
     
    I don't like the way our government prints money into oblivion, but at least it doesn't consume massive amount of non-renewable resources to do so. 
     
    Also I trade crypto, not mine it. So much easier and cleaner for a person that has a skill to spot value.

    Why the hell are GPUs so expensive again. I know it's mining but what caused it to boom so much this time? Is it because ethereum pretty much doubled in the last month? Why did it double?

    Honestly, I'm not mad:
    PUBG's loot boxes are MUCH better than Battlefront 2's loot boxes, as cosmetic only microtransactions do not affect gameplay and this loot box system is better than paid DLC IMO, because it doesn't split the player base.

    TBH, I don't get the point of AMD's Platform Security Processor and Intel's Management Engine. I get that they can be useful, but both of them don't seem very safe. I mean, new vulnerabilities are found all the time, so I wish they just stopped adding these things to their CPUs.
