    It's not a conspiracy if it's a known fact to begin with. And we all know what happened every single procreating time with these guys, nothing will be different this time.

    I work with a soon retired engineer that was selling pcs and macs through the 80s and 90s and even he says "problems always happen when prices are low every x years like clockwork"
    so for all the nay sayers he has 40+ years of computer retail experience you don't have

    they don't need to invent a problem but "maximizing" it to recoup the 3-4 weeks of downtime that they can do

    If they're in it together like the RAM manufacturers are then it actually is a conspiracy and not a theory. It seems likely given how prone to wrongdoing the industry is.
