12:38 <MTughan> I wouldn't like a 5% tax added to that... Just a few years ago, we used to pay 15% on just about everything. Now it's 13% on most stuff, and soon it'll be 13% on everything.\

12:38 <MTughan> And that's generic sales tax alone. Nothing specific.

12:39 <MTughan> That's Ontario residents only, but all of Canada has similar tax, somewhere between 5% and 20%.

12:40 *** licensed has joined #boinc

12:55 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

13:28 <PovAddict> meh :P

13:29 <PovAddict> we have had 21% VAT since I remember, and a few months ago a new tax was added to imported consumer electronics (realistically, that's all of them)

13:30 <MTughan> PovAddict: Is the VAT added to your advertised prices? Or is it charged in addition to the advertised prices?

13:31 <PovAddict> hmm I'd say "depends"

13:31 <PovAddict> usually the price you see in ads is the full price

13:32 <MTughan> Okay. No one here adds the tax in the advertised price, and they're all absurd prices like $199.99. Why do you just say $200? Beat's me.

13:32 <PovAddict> but sometimes (more common for services than for goods) they do "$99 <small>+ VAT</small>"

13:32 <MTughan> Some retailers make their prices nice with tax though.

13:32 <MTughan> &math 7.08 * 1.13

13:32 <Romulus> MTughan: 8.0004

13:32 <MTughan> Price for an item at a fast food restaurant around here. $8 exactly after taxes. :P

13:33 <PovAddict> ISPs, for example, used to advertise their prices confusingly like that

13:33 <PovAddict> large "$49"

13:33 <PovAddict> then "(+VAT, for the first 6 months; after that $99)"

13:33 <PovAddict> they're more reasonable nowadays

13:34 <MTughan> Oh, that reminds me of a commercial we saw yesterday... Was for a US pharmacy that was advertising a program that covered a lot of medications for diabetes patients.

13:34 <PovAddict> heh

13:34 <PovAddict> I read that US ads for medications are insane :P

13:34 <MTughan> But in small print at the bottom of the screen, it said it excludes prescription payments. Which insulin, the most common medication needed for diabetes, is.

13:36 <PovAddict> here we have TV ads for aspirin and stomach antacids, and not much more

13:36 <MTughan> Ah...

13:37 <MTughan> Well, as a generic specification, every 3 out of 4 US ads is either for law attorneys ("we'll sue the pants off of anyone!"), or for pharmaceuticals.

13:37 <MTughan> :P

13:37 <PovAddict> o.O

13:37 <PovAddict> that matches well the news I see

13:38 <PovAddict> endless health care discussions, and frivolous lawsuits

13:39 <MTughan> Eg, the woman in Utah who sued Google for wrong directions from Google Maps.

13:39 <MTughan> They told her to take a highway in walking directions. She did, and was hit by a truck.

13:39 <PovAddict> yup

13:39 <PovAddict> she should have got hit harder imho

13:39 <MTughan> Okay, so the directions are wrong. So is your common sense, it seems too.

13:39 <MTughan> lol

13:41 <MTughan> Now there's a difference in engineering designs... TechReport has an article on 80 Plus Gold PSUs at Computex. Enermax is showing off 1100+W models, where it should be rather easy to hit the 80 Plus Gold standards.

13:42 <MTughan> In comparison, Seasonic is offering 400 and 460W models, where it's much harder to hit those levels. And are a hell of a lot more useful too.

13:42 <MTughan> And those Seasonic models are efficient enough that even their 460W model is fanless. :D

13:44 <MTughan> Heh... Also, MSI is showing off a 16" "ultraportable". Even with a very thin profile, since when is a 16" laptop an ultraportable?

20:25 <PovAddict> I expected something more automated

20:25 <PovAddict> someone has to go and manually put in the tested RAM into the mobo?

20:28 <desti> i think this is only for long time testing and not the standard manufaction testing

20:28 <PovAddict> so they test small samples?

20:29 <desti> thats what i would think
