Except that Apple wants to write most of the driver, you'd be right. Nvidia doesn't get to write the driver for the Macs, that's why there are never any direct graphics driver updates from any GPU provider for Apple hardware, it all goes through them. Apple gets the blame because they're the ones doing the development.

They don't. The pressure rating for Skylake is the same as Broadwell, 50psi. Which ensures a good contact. What is likely happening is that some aftermarket coolers used more pressure because they're huge, heavy hunks of metal and needed more force to keep from lifting away, and those worked with the stronger substrate that Broadwell and earlier had, but not with Skylake.

That shouldn't be a point of pride. "Thick skin" should not be necessary for a daily discussion, people should be able to act like adults, even when emotionally invested in their technological baby. It's one thing to have an argument, it's another thing to have to gear up for an argument for every single discussion.

That's an assumption that'll get you killed.

Lots of cops playing army without as much danger of being actually shot at. Lots of forces operating as for-profit gangs that do whatever they want. They'll shout "stop resisting" as they de-escalate the situation with violence.

I'm not saying that there aren't any, or not even that most cops aren't good. But it doesn't take very many to poison a whole department, only a few in the higher ranks to run out the good cops.

You can do your own doctoring, just like you can drive on your own roads.

If you want to participate in the benefits of society, such as healthcare and maintained, safe roads and such, you pay your part. The biggest problem is the super rich and the corporations that have bought their way out of paying their part.
