I read it.You didn't read the NDA did you? Anyone who actually reads the NDA and who is just your average consumer will come to the conclusion that it is a censorship deal...
Post #20 above is my first take after reading it for the first time, and I didn't come to that conclusion.
Common sense doesn't suggest anything nefarious. Only short circuited thinking leads to that conclusion.
Since I read it, I stumbled across this video, where GN talked to a couple of lawyers, and another lawyer on camera:
Talking to an Actual Lawyer on NVIDIA's NDA
Bottom line according to the Lawyer:
There is nothing at all to be concerned with. All the ranting about the NDA is totally wrong. You can review NVidia products under this NDA and say whatever you want once the embargo date passes.
Often in tech whoever is on top a lot of anger/hate. I remember back in the day was it was IBM when the PC started dominating, then it was Microsoft when the were dominating, lately its mostly Intel and NVidia. It gets way more out of control today with a lot of internet hive mind attitudes.
Note: I am not saying NVidia does nothing wrong. They do lots of anti-consumer/anti-competitive things.
But people need stop substituting anger for reason, whenever anything NVidia (or Intel/Samsung/Apple/other company that makes you mad) related comes up.
