If google and amazon take recouping costs so seriously then why do they destroy drives instead of wipe drives and resell them? I think I'm far from delusional. It isn't complete disposal, recycling metals is very easy with near 100% recyclability and often leads to carbon credits that the company can then use or sellYOU wouldn't. Your opinion does not reality make.
Your understanding of IT infrastructure needs improvement. Companies as large as Google and Amazon take the idea of recouping expenses and costs very seriously. And if they see an opportunity to recover some of that cost through reuse and recycling, they do it. The cost of wiping and repurposing/reselling drives is small in comparison to the costs of complete disposal.
That is a blatant lie. No you haven't, I've never said that. EVER. I actively promote and encourage people to buy GPU's that were used for mining. Mostly because there is little to nothing to worry about and card used for mining are a solid value.
So do you have anything at all to share that is not based in the delusional and fanciful?
Irony (yeah, I can do that too)
