The NVIDIA advertising fiasco – link dump


It’s all over the web. I don’t even care about it, but lots of people do. NVIDIA has paid an advertising firm to pay people to go in to techie forums and praise NVIDIA products. Big deal? Well, some people are bothered by the fact that these praises are coming from people paid to do so who are not advertising their relationship with the graphics card manufacturer in their post.

Rather than write a lot about it, here’s a link dump of some of the sites covering the incident.

I think Bill’s write-ups at Dubious Quality are very well done.
