SSD Manufacturer OCZ Preparing For Bankruptcy

Konster Re:...and (182 comments)

They had loads of issues with their early drives for a few years.

They got rid of the CEO, and changed their approach to quality, but it was too late. Their Vector drives are pretty decent, but they had no one to buy them.

SSD Manufacturer OCZ Preparing For Bankruptcy

Konster Re:Is this the same OCZ that sells memory? (182 comments)

They used to sell memory, but the margins could support their high rate of rma replacements, so they gave up.

I'm surprised they never turned around their rather cavalier approach to QA since it cost them a lot of money for years and years.

Only corks make that cool popping sound when you pull them out, and this is why they are still used.

As AOL Prepares To Downsize Patch, CEO Fires Employee During Meeting

Konster Patch? (248 comments)

I wonder where I've been. I've never heard of Patch until I read it here just a few minutes ago.

Also, the CEO was an unprofessional cock. There were 9000 other, better ways to handle the firing of that employee. This was the wrong way.

You could always sublux the inverter through the phase array, which is a faster way of corrugating the tachyons than simply reversing the polarity.

Elon Musk Will Usher In the Era of Electric Cars

Konster Not so much (336 comments)

The tax payers saved Tesla from the brink of oblivion, not Musk. Nearly half a billion dollars, at that.

Not to mention, the number of cars that Tesla has to sell in order to become profitable is a tall order for any company, not just one selling expensive boutique electrics to a very small niche.

AMD Reportedly Preparing Massive Layoff

Konster Re:They are setting up the company for a takeover. (286 comments)

Except that anyone buying AMD won't be getting any of their x86 stuff because there's a lot of cross-licensing with Intel that won't get transferred on a sale.

Anyone who buys AMD at this point will only be getting their GPU division, unless by some miracle the purchaser works out a licensing deal with Intel for x86 stuff. Fat chance.
