    Perhaps they could use some of that cash to fix their execrable software
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Letting shareholders in? Is this the start of the rot to destroy quality and decent warranty etc in the name of "margins"? Hope I'm wrong, but hey.

    Re: Corsair files for $100 million Nasdaq IPO

    Also "digital athletes" ROFL. In the original greek perhaps, with its base meaning of someone who competes. But in the modern-day sense of
    "a person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength; a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical skill."
    Hardly. The physical aspect is clicking your fingers. If we're saying that hand dexterity makes you an athlete then by that definition a flutist is an athelte, as is a chef with good knife skills, or a touch typist from the sectretarial pool etc. Call it an esport is bad enough, but athletes? Do me a favour. All the real work is done by the machine in a virtual environment. There is nothing physically taxing here. It's up there with darts as being one of the only "sports" that can be played by massively overweight middle-aged people with no real stamina or strength. Athletes my RS.

    Maybe Corsair could purchase someone like eVGA which would give them access to motherboard and GPU technologies also.

    Indeed. The problem is you need it if you wish to control things like fan profiles on their coolers. I love the hardware but the software is so bad that I coulcn't recommend them to anyone

    Yuk. Luckily my motherboard controls fan profiles and my keyboard light schemes/macros are done on the board without software.

    It's difficult when you start to look at snooker players or dart players in that sense though. Skilled competitors but do they meet your condition of athlete or sportsman?

    No, I think it's quite simple. They are not athletes. They do not do athletics nor the level of physical exertion required to be called as such. They are skilled, yes, talented, yes, requiring effort and practice, yes. But in the same way a chess grandmaster is not an athlete, nor are they. Athletics is a subset of sport, but sport <> athletics. Otherwise anyone skilled at something who enters a competition becomes an athlete. That is not correct. A good singer who enters Britain's Got Talent does not become an athlete. A child who enters a spellbee does not become an athlete. Call gamers what they are. Professional gamers. Talented, skilled, GAMERS.

    Corsair should focus on the actual hardware instead of the RGB nonsense. Who actually buys the pointless crap like the iCUE LT100 advertised on this site?
