What just happened? Sheng-Chang "Charles" Chiang, president and CEO of Taiwanese technology company Micro-Star International (MSI), reportedly fell from a building to his death earlier today. The circumstances behind the fall aren’t known at this hour as police are conducting an investigation according to a Google translation of a story originally published by ET Today.

Per the report, Chiang had taken over as MSI CEO in January 2019. According to TechPowerUp, he was responsible for overseeing MSI’s recent turnaround in the desktop hardware space. Guru3D notes that Chiang graduated from the Institute of Electronics, Jiao Tong University, and had “previously served as Yangzhi Technology Associate and General Manager of MSI Desktop Platform Business Division.”

Unfortunately, the Google translation of the ET Today article is spotty at best. As a breaking story, there just isn’t much else to go on as of the time of this writing and MSI has not issued a statement as of press time. A rep for the company reportedly told Tom's Hardware that they will be issuing a statement later today.

That said, the situation certainly merits further investigation as this isn’t the first time a person in the tech sector has fallen from a building in the region.

Our thoughts are with the family of Chiang and all of those affected by the matter at MSI.

Yeesh, 2020 is a horrible year. My condolences to the family. I can only hope that this black cat of a year turns around at some point.
It won't and after the election result is announced in November and regardless of what that result is, America will spiral into chaos the likes of which the world has never seen in the biggest domestic conflict in human history.

Stop being such a doomer. America made it through the race riots and bombings of the 70s, vietnam survived the vietnam war, japan survived being nuked TWICE.

Besides, "biggest domestic conflict in history" really? REALLY? Just in america that isnt true, the civil war was a "domestic conflict", globally so was the cultural revolution and the soviet purges. History is littered with incidents of political violence that far dwarf the college kids LARPing as revolutionaries from Mommy's basement, and after all this america will be far less welcoming of additional rioting in november. Without the social media arse-patting this "movement" if you call it that would have died in a few days.

Besides even BLM themselves couldnt keep up the momentum in 2016 after the elections, only portland and seattle burned. Things will return to normal sooner or later. The economy will not let the lockdowns continue indefinitely, and now another texan, this one an owner of medical clinics int he state, is blowing the whistle on corona testing and case severity. The deaths are not following the case numbers, and once politicians stop being able to justify the shutdowns (or get voted out) and people get back to work support for the movement will utterly evaporate.

The cycle is:
Strong men create good times
Good times create weak men
Weak men create bad times
Bad times create strong men <-- You are here.

Things will get better.

What about strong women? Or does your mind not comprehend that? Social cultural change is inevitable, at one point working class weren't allowed the vote, women, and in America's case Black people. These social revolutions will happen in society for many centuries to come. Get with the times, you sound like you don't like freedom or something.

Wisest and most intelligent comment I have read in a long time. Bravo!

As succinct and informed a reply as I've ever seen.

'Men' as in people. Like saying 'For all mankind'... 'Man' being a classic term for people / the human race.

You're either being pedantic, or purposefully obtuse to somehow insinuate misogyny where there was none. So fix your panties... They're in a twist.

...support for the (BLM) movement will utterly evaporate....
The upbeat, "it'll all get better" post, derailing a thread about a man's tragic death into a right wing rant. Feel better?

He had some arguments with his family recently, he went through a heart surgery last year, and was taking medication which included anti-depressant, nothing is for sure, but a great guy indeed, been with MSI for 20 years, one of the key figures who brought MSI and PC gaming to where it is today. It's our loss really. RIP.

MSI CEO was well-respected globally. He made it to the top through hard work (and graduated from a good university, having not cheated at any tests to get in). All of which make him the exact opposite of the Orange Twitler.

On the PC games front: We need a remastered "Redneck Rampage".

Where were the suicide nets?
I thought only apple had to use those and a couple other technological factories here and there in China. And plus this is Tawian not China even tho I am postive China would disagree as well as the UN and WHO on that one. But in all fact of the matter apple is the only tech company in the "area" of this occurrence although be it mainland that had to have nets installed at all factories due to rapid increase in jump rate. Being serious here and not joking or ripping on apple for any trolls off their leash.
