  • If you have an Asus anything, better hope it doesn't need to be repaired.  (Tom's Hardware)

    There's a video at the end of the post providing background, but among other scams, Asus wanted around $2700 to replace just the power connector on an RTX 4090 - a well-documented problem with these cards - and $200 for a literally microscopic scratch on an Ally Z1 gaming device.

    In that case the device was sent in to repair a broken joystick, and not only did Asus not offer to repair the joystick, they threatened to send the device back disassembled if the customer didn't cough up.

    This didn't go down too well because the customer in question was a hardware review channel with more than two million subscribers.

Asus RMA Fail Video of the Day



Never get into an argument with a man who buys shampoo by the barrel.



Vtuber Music Video of the Day



My single favourite song from Hololive, and they've recorded a lot of songs.  The English branch by itself has something like 400 entries on the playlist.

Amazing that this came out of the mouth of a rat who even speaks Japanese with a thick Australian accent.


Disclaimer: A lot of things can happen in a year.  The king might die.  I might die.  And maybe the rat will learn to sing.
