Blue’s Yeti X hopes to turn everyone into a pro-grade streamer or podcaster

We might have to amend that headline a little -- Blue's Yeti X hopes to turn everyone into a pro-grade streamer or podcaster, provided you're willing to shell out at least $170 (R2,500 or thereabouts) for the newly-announced mic. And provided you're able to find it here. It's possible to source the company's gear locally but we might be in for a bit of a wait.

It's not surprising, what with many recent data breaches, misuse of user information, and abuse of its live-streaming functions leaving black marks all over the company.
