  • What a nimble company

    does Wilee Coyote only realize there is no ground beneath him when he looks down. You can shout at the television all you want. He'll never hold up that little sign that says " Uh Oh!" until he is already plummetting towards the ground. I guess all you people out there are liars until Apple admits there is a problem and only then is it to tell us somebody lied to them.

    Do you know what "culpability" means? I think not.

    None of the manufacturers who used these chips had any
    'culpability.' Only nVidia did.

  • Replace? With what?

    So far all the notebook makers are replacing only
    chips that have actually gone bad. Yet, they are
    replacing with identical components. What happens
    when the replacement goes bad and the notebook is out
    of warranty?

    Note to self: Don't buy any refurbished notebooks with
    nVidia chips in them...
