    LMG was NEVER owned or operated by NCIX. not appropriate to call it ex-NCIX.

    the founder of LMG, Linus, was an employee of NCIX, and he was tasked with creating the NCIX Tech Tips channel, which he did.

    Linus decided to branch off and start his own channel, not operated by NCIX at all, called Linus Tech Tips, and when it got big enough, he formed LMG and quit NCIX completely. the NCIX channel continued separately until they closed their doors when they went bankrupt.

    No. Source: have a chinese friend who utilizes one when he goes to china. Cheaper to stay here and get a high end escort, even more so once you factor in traveling expenses. lol.

    NCIX is a Canadian computer/electronics retailer. kind of like tiger direct. they went bankrupt earlier this year. it's likely most people here in the states might not have bought from them ever. i know i didnt. but still news worthy and crazy that they didnt even encrypt their files.

    Bought a fan from ncix us a while back (3 addresses ago and a different cc). The way I understand this, it's likely only Canadians effected. More so if you were ever an employee since the Canadian equivalent of i9/w4 data was also there.
