And you thought the lines at Costco were long
First of all, shout out to all the people out there on the front lines dealing with this pandemic. Whether you're a medical professional or the grocery store cashier, I appreciate each and every one of you out there. Please be safe and if anyone here is or knows someone who is out there every day, please send them my love and respect. Yep, random dude on Razer Insider says he loves and respects you. I stand by it.
This morning two of our team members had difficulty logging in because of internet troubles. Bandwidth is being eaten everywhere because many people are working from home and flooding all the data tubes. Netflix and YouTube are defaulting to standard quality. Steam is limiting auto-updating of games to the three most recent played. It seems that companies everywhere are doing their part to lessen the load of data being squeezed. It's so easy to think of data as being this magical thing that seems limitless with wifi and the cloud, yet we see caps all the time, whether it's monthly mobile data or even your ISP connection.
What if it got so bad we had to ration data? In 1979 during the oil crisis the United States rationed gas. What would you do if you had to ration data? Imagine only being able to use data - mobile, wifi, any form of internet, on the weekends only, or Monday-Wednesday-Friday only?
What would you do on a non-data day?
This is the Thread of the Week. Good engagement may get you some Razer Silver.
