someone tell them You can't eat a TV
Let them eat 4K(ake)
ding ding ding WINNER
Winner Winner TV dinner
Not with that attitude you can't! [/sarcasticjoke]
WEF : when we said "Let them eat bugs", we meant the electronic kind too !!
you cannot eat a TV. a TV is an electronic device that is not edible and does not provide any nutritional value. additionally, attempting to eat a TV can be very dangerous as it may contain harmful materials such as glass, plastic, and metal, which are known to the State of California to cause serious injuries if ingested. it is important to only consume food and beverages that are safe and intended for human consumption.
Umm, ChatGPT knows that you capitalize the word at the beginning of a sentence.
Obviously, this is the impostor, ChadGPT.

kek. you caught me
I know several "computer scientists" that don't pass the Turing test themselves.
They can watch food videos though for hunger therapy
You can't eat a TV but you can watch shows about food!
Or you could watch The View so you're not hungry anymore
No electronics are NOT defying inflation.
Because of inflation in energy prices combined with tons of crypto pump and dumps bitcoin mining is no longer viable. So all these chinese shitbags that have been buying up all the graphics cards for near a goddamn DECADE are quitting the game. So they are DEMAND is crashing.
That's why electronics are not rising AS FAST despite muh chip shortages. Because people are not spending money on LUXURY GOODS no more.
This guy PC builds..
my thoughts exactly...and I sympathize, I can't wait for the 4090 prices to drop to a price thats close to msrp
Honestly don't even see much need over a 3090 or even 3080. Hell, even the older 3080s now you can get at bargain-bin prices if you don't mind sacrificing the 2gb less in VRAM from the newer 3080s. On my older one I can pretty much run any game in 4k, well over 60fps, usually max settings, ray tracing, etc. I was considering rushing to the new series but decided it wasn't worth it. Would rather upgrade CPU at this point
Rocking an AMD R9-390X over here. It's doing fine, it's like an old dog. I am outmoded as of last year for sure. Some games are now unplayable. But it's okay. I don't have time for them anymore really. This video card and my PC is one of my proudest builds.
It was at one time benchmarking top 10%, and I completed the build at $800 circa 2015.
So it has done very well. I'll miss it. I feel like I got away with something special now that I took for granted back then, seeing the prices these days.
Yeah prices are absurd now. I was super happy I was able to get a prebuilt, the summer before last, for $1800 just because it had a 3080 in it lol (and basically rebuilt it anyway because I still wanted to build my pc)
I definitely wouldn't upgrade if I had a 30 series card like yours then. I have a 2080 super though, so I am gonna pull the trigger on a 4090. I have heard that the 4080's are not so good so it's down to the 4090. Cheers Pede
I doubt it.
It’s proof that these metrics are intentionally and deliberately misleading and manipulative. What good is the CPI when half of it going up just pushes the other half down? The purpose is obvious: when the shit hits the fan and essentials go through the roof, the metric self-corrects in order to fool people into thinking everything isn’t so bad.
Much like graphic cards, they went into a thirsty market that was spending. I think they really overproduced on the new models and demand fell into the toilet. As long as your name isn't Henry Ford then that would mean prices will be slashed just to move goods.
Nobody mines Bitcoin on GPUs, it hasn't been profitable to do so in over a decade. Right now it's the clouds and AI that buys up all the GPUs.
The post-lockdown crash is what ended the bitcoin mining. Not "over a decade".
GPUs can't compete with ASIC devices which are up to a million times faster for the same energy input. You can verify this yourself by computing SHA256 hashes on your own GPU, notice how you only get around 200Mh/s and nowhere near Th/s
GPUs can compete against ASIC, that's why so many of them were using them instead of building their own ASIC platforms. You get many more hashes when you're running in parallel across multiple GPUs, which is what they're doing.
Especially since all the tools to run parallel run out of the box for all linux/unix/bsd and windows implementations. It requires some ass scratching and head pounding for ASIC.
ASIC are over a million times faster on SHA256 than any GPU, for the same energy input and price. If you want to use a GPU for mining you need to mine something with a different algorithm, like scrypt, ethash or whatever ASIC resistant algorithm Monero is now using.
A CPU from 10 years ago will be faster doing SHA256 if that's all you're being forced to calculate. They were more mathcore heavy then even the ones today which have offloaded complex math to GPUs.
No, no, ASIC > GPU mining for btc
Seems like they broke that about two years ago. Which is why everyone went with GPUS away from ASIC.
nvidia quadros aren't gaming GPUs. I use those to run accounting software on a 6 monitor setup
Don’t worry about nvidia. As the retail video card market fades, the data center/ai boards become more and more popular among institutions.
Consumer electronics are the market we are talking about. Not specialist electronics.
Nvidia makes specialty electronics that only amd has been able to compete with barely.
Okay.... what's specialty about a video card available in retail stores?
Which is why the tech hardware industry is laying off.
Ready for the punchline?
The TV is on its way to being dead - folks are watching shows on streaming apps on PCs/Laptops/Phones. I know in our house the only point of the TV is for the Playstation.
Try buying computer components and tell me how they are "so cheap" spoiler...they are not.
The resolution is shit on tablets and phones. Kids don't care and can't tell the difference, but having a quality 4K TV is leagues better than that garbage.
The best way to go is plugging a Chad PC into a Chad TV.
That's what I'm working towards now. Shit like "Roku" and whatnot are cool in concept, but forget using it for youtube browsing. The ads are atrocious without adblock and whatnot.
A monitor will always be better than a big TV, because you can make a closeup monitor take up the same space in your vision as a large TV, while also being able to see more detail, while also having way more options in features like refresh rate.
The TV only makes sense if you have multiple people viewing it at once from a couch, but even then, a decent 34 inch sized ultrawide monitor setup closer will look better than a 70 inch across the room, the only difference is making it all look good. The TV has a wall for a backing. All you need is an island style monitor setup in front of the couch, like how those TV's come up from inside of a box at the end of a bed. An artificial wall or a coffee table that has a backing on the opposite end to hold the monitor up, easily takes care of the aesthetics. Run that bad boy from a mini pc, that is also wifi'd in to your main PC or smartphone for control, and you've got a solid setup.
It's cool, but not a good setup for anyone that cares about audio and wants to use an external source for surround or even decent stereo. Need the whole room for good imaging and soundstage. And the audio, at least for me, is the most immersive and best part of watching any movie or show
TV usually has mediocre latency for games as well. Although modern ones are sometimes a little better than in the past.
except for poor gen z kids, nobody I know prefers to watch movies or tv shows on a tiny laptop or phone screen. We like huge tv's for that, and gaming as well. lots of us have projectors and home theatres. the TV is far from dead.
Amen. A good movie or show deserves a good home theater. A laptop or tablet will never replace my HT room, which has a 7.2.4 Atmos setup (complete with in-ceilings, EQ calibrated room, etc) and a big 4k OLED tv, as well as a separate system (same location) for stereo/audio for music listening. Hell, that was one of the first things we looked for when considering our home purchase (ensuring a good entertainment room to setup a dedicated home theater and hifi). I'm younger but not gen z, and I'm not an outlier/most of my peers feel similarly. It's far too immersive and engaging for me to ever consider replacing that experience with a tablet.
Plus I like having physical media to own, so I have all physical copies of everything, then backed up digitally on a home server with Plex (that part I do know I'm an outlier on, though, as everyone seems happy to ditch owning their media for the convenience of streaming, unfortunately).
I have 82 tb of media, and another 54 tb of backup (redundant servers) - I don't backup sci-fi or cooking shows.My kids bedrooms are all turned into Blockbusters with thousands of DVD's I have stored. 9k+ last count. I'm like the Gen X version of the weird old boomer who had bedrooms filled with records in the 70's. ---------------------Also, Fuck you Millenials and Zoomers. May your lives be as pathetic and painful as you made ours. Reagan and Trump Forever! You will never inherit what we worked for. We sill spend your inheritance on cocaine and hookers.You deserve to eat bugs.
I remember going to our neighbor's house to watch Star Trek in color on a 17" screen during its original run.
Well, that...and the fact 8 year old me had a huge crush on my friend's mom. She was a hot, leggy, showoff blonde from Germany and she KNEW she had me in the palm of her hand.
I disagree but not for the reason most might think.
I think TV is on its way out due to the real-estate it takes up. If given the choice of a HD display for a PC...or a 10' bigger TV; most will probably go with the display - especially when you consider the newer generations are not moving into homes where a home-theater is a viable option. Having a amazing sound system for example is pointless if you cannot use it because it upsets the guy in the pod next to you. Folks of my Gen atleast have homes where we can make those impressive set ups; but anyone that follows will likely not have that sort of set up.
Sucks to be the younger generation. My home theatre rocks. 12' screen. hella bass, and a commercial popcorn machine. Gen X worked for this, and we will enjoy it until the day we die.
Oh by all means - but it will likely die with us.
I mean, if you don't give a shit about quality, then sure, but plenty of people still want at least one decent TV in the house for quality alone. I would never watch a movie on a pc/tablet/phone, and will always have a dedicated home theater room. And I'm not an unusual outlier, either. A huge reason movie theaters are going under is precisely because of how affordable it's become to set up a theater in your own home with competitive audio and video.
And even putting quality aside, people will always want a TV (or at least a "screen" with an HDMI input, which I think is what most will consider a TV nowadays since you can hook up nearly any input) in their living room, and likely bedroom, to be able to stream off [insert preferred streaming box], even if they are using a laptop or tablet as the input to that screen. Imagine everyone gathering around the living room couch to all put eyes on a 10 inch tablet. Won't happen. They'll cast/airplay, at the very least, from that tablet to the tv/screen in the living room.
Also you don't have to buy massively overpriced popcorn or put up with riff-raff talking during the movie. Or get dressed up and drive there.
Absolutely! One of the best parts about it for sure!
Only thing I haven't gotten around to yet since moving is putting the transducers/bass shakers in the new couch. We had them installed at our last place, which was awesome especially since we were in an apartment (so I could turn off the woofer but still get some bass without blowing the neighbors away), but I guess I've just been too busy with other stuff since buying our first home.
Still, finally having a dedicated theater and music room, with no worry about annoying any neighbors with loud noises, has been the best part about finally owning, and was honestly one of the primary motivations for me to get a house.
It won't be any time soon, but I've been watching a lot of videos from people that have built their home theaters in large sheds or some variation of a separate building from their house. I don't have a ton of land, but enough, and this is something I'd love to do some day.
the biggest reason I'll want a TV is basically because of the ergonomic appeal of a couch or recliner compared to a computer chair
I told the wife we didn’t need seven hens. Now I have more eggs than I can possibly eat.
I’ve had the same TV for several years now. I hardly watch it anymore. I need a new one why?
I will gladly dispose of your excess eggs.
Learn me how to mine hens I need to eat 4 dozen eggs per day
Gaston did nothing wrong
Everyone jumped on the chicken bandwagon around me and now they can't get rid of their eggs for $3 a dozen, especially now that the price is back down under $2.50...
That sounds like a good problem to have.
Instructions unclear, I now have a melted ipod stuck to my frying pan and still no breakfast.
This is always what happens in the beginning of high inflation. Necessities become expensive so people spend less on frivolites like electronics, thus pushing those prices down. IIRC it is called Stagflation and it can lead to hyperinflation if it persists.
Oh goody ...
Mind control devices are subsidized.
These idiots can't die of VAIDS fast enough me.
WaPo is just straight propaganda.
This is beyond the fucking pale.
The Consumer Price Index is bullshit precisely because it includes televisions and other optional items along with food, energy, and shelter. When prices for essentials soar, nonessential items stop selling. When inventories for nonessential items reach critical mass, those prices start falling. Why? Because no one has money to buy them. It doesn’t matter how cheap TVs are when you’re struggling to put food on the table and keep the lights on. So the nonessential prices go down, and suddenly inflation is going down! It’s a self-correcting equation, which is why it’s useless for determining the situation on the ground for actual consumers. If TVs and other nonessential goods drop by 75% in price tomorrow, “inflation” would disappear - but you still might not be able to afford food, shelter, or energy.
What makes this article so fucking insidious is that it is promoting the greatest flaw in CPI as a feature. These people are evil.
People don't have money to buy TV's because the eggs are so expensive! So the price of TV's drop because nobody is buying them!
Don't count your TVs before your eggs hatch?
Sorry kids, it's TVs for breakfast again.
I've heard it be called Washington ComPost before but that's an insult to compost, because that has value.
That’s silly, having TVs for breakfast. When I was a little girl, my mom served us TV dinners.
Just got an 85" for 2 grand...BOOM
Big Mike's charging a premium now?
Tastes great with bacon.
Hmmmm, the one thing they feed your brain with passive propaganda that doesn't rise in price ... Wonder why?! 🧐
Samsungs over easy? Doesn't sound too good.
"Instead of eating healthy, nutritious eggs, buy a TV so you can sit there all day, and become even dumber, and more brainwashed from watching their programming."
The tv will tell you that you don't need to eat so you'll save lots of money in the next year lol......oh, wait.....
"Diane, could you explain that to the committee? Doesn't your husband own Comcast?"
Fuck your goddamned rectangle of death that makes people into retards and unwitting suicide victims suddenly
Look at SUPER HIGH-DEF eggs on this 8K TV!!!! Images so amazing, you'll think you can reach out and grab them
No matter how delicious OLED's may taste, TV's are still more expensive than eggs by the pound.
TV's offer what benefit?
Clearly you aren't looking at 4080 prices.
Prices are low on many non essentials because people are struggling to pay for basic costs of living and arent thinking about buying a fucking tv. Demand for many non essential consumer goods is going to go WAY lower.
That and tech is on a downtrend now. I can't tell the difference between 1920 x 1080 and 4k! What are they going to add to the equation?! Don't get me started on actual software available today. No one has any good ideas and that's probably to be expected, but grocery stores are raping everyone with their bullshit pricing. An Amish store was selling eggs for $2.97 a dozen. We're getting fleeced in the name of covid.
We grow enough food to feed 1 billion extra people, after covering our own food needs. Prices should not be high. But they are, because it's by design. We're paying for all the discounts Biden is giving to China for our food, because there's no fucking way you can sell soy beans to a country that food has always been cheap in and expect them to pay more on top of all the overseas shipping cost. First world farming, first world costs....selling to third world shit holes that only pay third world prices.
So they're effectively selling it to China at a loss, and we're paying the difference. Same with all the other countries we ship food to. Another trick China does is pretend to be a buyer, then backs out and waits until the food is near the point of rotting, so they can scoop it up at an even lower price, basically stalling US farmers until the last moment, when it's either accept the bottom barrel price or risk their harvests rotting away and getting nothing. And they can do this because of the sheer volume that gets reserved for them. At that point you can't even find another buyer for that much volume, nor can you deliver a much lesser volume, because they will refuse to buy then too.
The entire consuming device industry is subsidized by the content creation (mind poison) industry. No shit TVs are cheap, how else will the inject that bullshit directly into your kids?
I can’t eat a fucking tv nor do I want to watch their propaganda
Of course TV’s are cheap, they make the money off of them selling your data.
Is this the new "eat bugs"?
author https://www.c-span.org/person/?133611/ShiraOvide Why do they always have that look? WARNING: If you watch that video for 35 seconds, you may be stupider.. Oh and don't look into the eyes, you may have a spontaneous abortion (yes even if you're a Man).. Oh and just watching that video for 14 seconds will make your hair 400% more greasier.. ew.
Problably the vaxx
These kind of idiots should be forced to drive long distances with a battery car that is 12+ years old and so they'll have to wait at "charging" stations for 4.5 hours at a time, 3 times during the trip.
They're made of cheaper and cheaper material. Also, they're distractions to pacify you from noticing the country is run by satanic pedophiles that have robbed this entire country and they still aren't done doing evil shit.
There ain’t no rest for the wicked.
Nobody wants a television because television is cancer.
