      I got an even better idea, since the OLED is bendable we can make concentrical layers, like a lot of sphere one in the other and since from what you have showed, from the back of the clear TV display we dont see nothing, then everyone watching the sphere TV will see only his prespective and also his own background since it wont be visible from the back(the other sides of the sphere). its a really cool topic tho. And its already possible specially the first one (transparent TV + 3D tv tech of few years ago) Make a video on this or holograms in the future including this linus!

    The point of the GPU USB card thing is you use a single PCIe lane while mining. These types of things were legit going for more than $100 when that was popular.

    I used EVGA’s upgrade guarantee to go from 7800 to 7900, big mistake. The tiny fan looked sweet, like it was going to be super effective, but the secret was they just let the vram melt. I think I went through three of those under warranty. They had huge recalls, but evga handled it like a champ, they actually ended up sending me an unbranded reference card because stock was so low, but yea those cards got hot, so sorry aboot your finger

I would replace a Sata HDD but I need the storage space and I can't get an m.2 and I'm sure you don't need any mSata ssd's cause they kind of aren't good enough. Amirite my buddy?

    I have a 'light it up' fan card. It's been running for 2+ years on high and does light-up. I just use it to push air around inside the case. I think it was $4.59 at microcenter. I had a credit and it was either the card, or a Monster drink. I chose the card.

    When pci and serial ports were standard, massive crt monitors, ball mice with no mouse wheels or lasers. A hardrive that was IDE used master and slave jumpers and was louder than anything.
    If you bent cpu pins they were easy to fix. When quake and unreal, half life. UnreaL tournament. Before broadband we used dial up connection.

Plus all of them are obviously useless tools who learned nothing in their chosen community colleges and decided to come out to the world shitting on THE most important business currently in the world by making a total piece of crap they call a video.
