    Cool - maybe
    Beastly - probably
    Fuck Ugly - definitely

    (not that it matters really, I know, but damn that hunch back design is ugly)

    had a full post to each of these quotes, but instead decided, nah, lets not go there.

    What i will comment on, have bolded, same boat. i Will spend my money how i please.

    And if other users think i am moron for spending my money how i want too, then good for them. That is their opinion and they are entitled too it. Doesn't mean they have to share it. (falls on deaf ears anyway, i will do what i want, when i want, because i can)

    trippinonprozac - haters gunna hate. Kinda tempted to buy one as well just to trigger some snowflakes

    The Note 7 that kept blowing up was obviously worse and those "hoverboards" that did the same would also count if you consider them "tech". Google Glass and the Windows Phone were also terrible. Just having a slow release of product isn't really that bad in comparison to those, the Blackberry implosion, Sony Vita, Juicero or the Steam Machines etc

    Not really mate. We have to be careful to not use Australian prices as a point of reference, we are a small market and retailers here are smoking crack most of the time,

    I made this chart to look at RRP in USD adjusted for inflation. If anything the only anomaly in the past four generations was the last - which was a failed experiment in greed by NVidia.

    Your card has come in 35 times, 20 have been provided to "a guy" who is selling them on eBay for $800 profit, and the rest have gone to the poor customers who signed up later at the more expensive price because you know... supply and demand apparently makes shitty behaviour ok.

    I forgot the 737 plane that fell out of the sky because of software failures.

    Of course we do.

    We live here.

    We consume here.

    US prices are irrelevant now thanks to Gerry's brown paper bags.

    I have an order with them for the same card. It's been sitting in "In Processing (Will be updated in 1~2 working days)" status for nearly a month.
    Wondering what their working days are...

    You know, I've always thought that - especially on a Friday night, after about 5 beers :D

    HT following mwave trend link

    Would this purchase count if you make a price protection claim? :Pirate:
