RTX 30 Series crashing flaw
2020-09-25
Is your 3080 or 3090 card crashing when boosted?

Then its probably built with 6 cheap POSCAPs and no MLCC capacitors, founders edition is built with a (POSCAP 4:2 MLCC) ratio of these capacitors. It’s speculated that the cheaper capacitors are not filtering out surrounding interference adequately at higher frequencies (when boosted).

This may not be the only corner that’s been cut by some of the manufacturers, only time will tell.

If this turns out to be a hardware flaw, experts believe they will release a patch that will lower the boost capability of your card to make it more stable. As long as the card is still capable of hitting 1.71Ghz (3080) or 1.70Ghz (3090) boosted, consumers won’t be able to do a lot about the nerf.

Major Twitter Hack
2020-07-16
A large scale Twitter hack eligibly using Twitters own admin tool has targeted and taken over many high-profile accounts including the YouTube gamer MrBeast.

The accounts were then used to scam people into giving thousands of dollars in BitCoin, believing that they were going to receive double the amount back. Some of the main bitcoin accounts used were
(bc1qxy2kgdygjrsqtzq2n0yrf2493p83kkfjhx0wlh) and had received 12.86 BTC (approx. $118,000) totalling 373 transactions. Just $83 worth of Bitcoin remains in the account.
(bc1qwr30ddc04zqp878c0evdrqfx564mmf0dy2w39l) had received 0.55 BTC (approx. $5000)

Some of the other major Twitter accounts hacked were Apple, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, George Wallace, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffett, Mike Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos, Uber, Twitter Support, Coindesk, Binance, Coinbase, Gemini, Floyd Mayweather, Square’s CashApp, Tron Foundation, Kucoin and probably many more to come.

This is a big nightmare situation for Twitter. Personably I can’t believe that people still fall for this kind of scam.

Amazon New World
Beta delayed until spring 2021
2020-07-02
After much feedback from the Alpha player base, AGS have realized that the game is not ready for release, and decided to delay the beta until spring 2021.

As an alpha player myself, I believe this is a good move. Due to NDA I can’t really say much, but I do feel that the game does need a little more work. I also think that Covid-19 has played a big part in this delay, with most of the dev team working from home.
