Micro Center apologizes for insulting AMD graphics cards

What kind of nonsense is that?! In a post explaining how to choose a graphics card, Micro Center said that AMD products “require periodic changes or maintenance to function as intended,” while Nvidia products are “plug and play.” The CEO of Micro Center has since apologized.
