“If you see a stylus, they blew it.” - Steve Jobs

Pencil and Paper were already popular products, but the news for FiftyThree is probably bad as companies that get out in front of Apple in terms of innovation usually get run over.
The guys at FiftyThree can't catch a break. First Facebook named its biggest and best app Paper, copying the name of FiftyThree's earlier iPad drawing app, and now Apple has named its new stylus a P...

I for one am getting a chortle of watching Jobs' decisions get reversed.

3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Dear +GIGABYTE,

Please work on your RMA process.

Specifically in the following areas:

1. I had to pay to ship my card to be serviced.

EVGA and Sapphire have always sent me a pre-paid FedEx. Even Sony sent me pre-paid UPS for my PS3 warranty return and that can't have been cheap.

2. Communications blackout during the process

I had no idea what was going on until I got the email saying it was shipped. Even then, nowhere can I find what was found to be the problem or what was done to rectify it. I can only guess that it was a repair because I got a card with the same SN back and it no longer .

3. I had to pay duties and brokerage to get UPS to release my card

This is probably more on UPS than you, but $13.92 in brokerage to assign $0 in duties and taxes? Had the import sheet been marked correctly as a warranty return/repair, it should have just sailed through customs with no fees.

4. Not everything was returned to me

I sent my card with all of it's blue plastic I/O covers on it and received literally none of them back; DVI/HDMI/DP/PCI-E/Crossfire covers are all gone. The retail box sleeve also apparently didn't warrant returning. This is just outright laziness on the part of the techs.

I love your products because they rarely go wrong, but this has literally been the worst RMA experience I have ever had in over 20 years of building computers for myself and others...

All of the life-or-death commands have physical controls instead of being accessed through the glass cockpit (which could be more easily damaged).
Crew Dragon was designed to be an enjoyable ride. With four windows, passengers can take in views of Earth, the Moon, and the wider Solar System right from their seats, which are made from the highest-grade carbon fiber and Alcantara cloth.

The tech is still in it's infancy, but researchers have learned how to grow carbon nanofibres from the CO2 in the air for a pittance. While I find the fighting climate change aspects a bit dubious, anything that opens the door to advanced composites to the auto industry is right up my alley.
