    I think Walmart sets the standard tbh, so shopping at Amazon is a bit more palatable.

    In any case, when you have a company with fantastic customer service, cheap prices and mostly free shipping, you know somebody is getting fucked over. You can't have it all. Not my fault if China hates its own poor people.

    It's more the warehouse workers in NA getting fucked; this article is a bit dated, but I can't imagine they've loosened things up: http://m.motherjones.com/politics/20...rehouses-labor

    It's not terribly well written but is an interesting firsthand account.

    I've only heard (anecdotally) that WalMart is your more standard soul crushing min wage job.

    Apparently Amazon has added a lot of automation to their warehouses now, where robots do the vast majority of the work. I think people still pack the boxes though, at least for the time being.

    Holy fuck, I could only make it through so much of that person's whining. If you don't like the job, don't work there. Omgz someone is mean to you at work?! The audacity!

    I am addicted to Noctua.

    Will be installing 2 Noctua intake fan s on the side and 1 rear exhaust fan this week on my pc.

    By the time I am done with this addiction I will be rocking 10 fans in my case (includes those on the heatsink)

    So I checked on my Newegg shipment last night, and it said it was on the way and supposed to arrive today. I check today, and they updated it to say that it hasn't even left the courier's facility yet, and now won't arrive until the 11th. I know this is a busy time of year for the couriers, but FFS. I ordered some stuff from Amazon (I don't have Prime), and that shipment got here last Friday...

    Anyone see any good deals on laptops this week? I'm not into gaming or anything so just a basic every day one will do just fine. Don't want to spent more than 1k.

    Purolator fucking blows. No idea why Newegg uses them. I'm in the same boat, Newegg shipped my shit from Richmond Hill and Memory Express shipped from Calgary on the same day. I have an expected delivery of tomorrow for my SSD from Canada Post and still no expected delivery from Purolator.

    Honestly, had I known they used Purolator, I'd have just driven to Richmond Hill to pick it up.

    At least it's Richmond Hill. Mine was shipped from Richmond BC (and I'm in Ontario). Additionally, although not a shipper issue, my order from Amazon in the States was made on 27th, and 3 of the 4 items haven't shipped yet either (all were in stock, fulfilled by Amazon). I guess this time of year just sucks in general.

    That is a good deal. I assume that's in US currency so it would be around $640 Canadian.
