    If my life depended on it, I couldn’t tell someone what you were saying in your post.

    A alu box.....
    An aluminum box?

    PT right a suker....
    Put right a sucker? Part right a sucker? Physical therapy right a sucker? It still makes no sense how I’m writing my “translation”....

    I cannot make sense out of your post and how it relates to the amd processor testing video I posted let alone what you were trying to type.

    That apple tower doesn't cost 12 grand. The video shows new 32" 6k resolution displays for professionals who do color grading/video editing etc along with high end computers. Those computers will be purchased in large quantities by film studios, editing companies, and so on. If you want both items it's 12 grand.

    If you build a windows pc with hardware from Dell, the price goes to $6,300—which is still more than the Mac Pro tower.

    you're also not professionally editing 6k or 8k video footage for clients. The "value" is when you have a log of clients waiting on work, and you can do things faster to put out more work and make more $ off higher end hardware. There are numerous youtube channels that even run Red video cameras. The same channel I linked to above on the amd processors spent 140 grand on their video camera for youtube videos.

    he needs to see that not everyone can get by with a $500 computer or monitor. Maybe this will blow his mind.

    Phone numbers for as many as 419 million Facebook users were found in plain text

    Phone numbers linked to as many as 419 million Facebook accounts were recently found on an online server that was not protected by a password, according to a TechCrunch report on Wednesday.

    Facebook told Business Insider that there was no evidence that any users had their accounts compromised and that the number of affected users was likely around half of what TechCrunch reported, as its team analyzed the data set and found duplicate records. Facebook would not put an exact number to the users it estimated to be affected by the exposure, but half of the reported number would be around 200 million users.

    The database was brought to TechCrunch's attention by a security researcher, who discovered the information sitting in plaintext — meaning it wasn't encrypted at all. This information appears to have been gathered by a third party, who left it exposed to the internet. The database was taken offline after the web host was contacted, TechCrunch said.

    The information in question, according to the report, included users' Facebook IDs — which are strings of numbers used by the company to uniquely identify an account — and the associated phone number for each account. Some records are said to have included the user's name, gender, and country in which they resided.

    TechCrunch reported that 133 million of the 419 million records discovered on the server were associated with American users.

    The issue, a Facebook spokesperson told Business Insider on Wednesday, stemmed from a feature, which has since been shut down, that allowed users to search for friends by their phone numbers. Facebook said malicious actors were able to use this feature to scrape information, including phone numbers, from users' accounts.

    Facebook shut down the ability to search for friends by phone number in April 2018.

    "This dataset is old and appears to have information obtained before we made changes last year to remove people's ability to find others using their phone numbers," a Facebook spokesperson told Business Insider. "The dataset has been taken down and we have seen no evidence that Facebook accounts were compromised. The underlying issue was addressed as part of a Newsroom post on April 4th 2018 by Facebook's Chief Technology Officer."

    The finding is the latest example of data-protection issues surrounding the social-networking giant. Just last month, Business Insider's Rob Price reported that Facebook was launching a review of hundreds marketing and advertising firms amid indications of widespread misuse of Instagram user data, including data scraping of users' public data without their consent.
