I enjoyed this video discussing future plans for LTT. The process they have to in familiarizing and introducing new hosts to the viewers and how they slowly inoculate that person from the wave of petty negative comments.

It's also nice to see Linus the person and not the character he plays.

Christ he's such an easier person to listen to. Don't know why he doesn't just do this.

e: Just finished it. I feel bad for hating on the dude so much because he actually seems like a really cool person to work with, not just tolerate. Thanks for postin this.

This right here is all of GamersNexus/Steve distilled into why I love him so loving much. Just a relentless calling out of AMD's bullshit about the 110C junction temperature poo poo.

At the same time I feel so bad for them cause their audience is comprised of people who label/self-identify themselves as 'gamers' and I really wish they were in a position to rebranding themselves. Like maybe call themselves TechNexus or just Tech Jesus.

He's part of a section of Youtube of very good technical people who have bad opinions. There's a few of them that seem great at first then you notice their opinions and how they're subtly in all of their videos because all of the technical info is great and right and they're not making social commentary videos but it sneaks in with weekly (or daily) half hour videos they need to fill time in. I don't want to call any of them out because they're not explicitly making social commentary videos and the technical info is good.

Just yesterday I upgraded the HDD, ODD, battery and RAM in a friend's late 2011 Macbook Pro. Apple's current policy of 'solder all the things' is egregious as gently caress and that's ignoring the fact that their lovely keyboards failing constitute replacing like 50% of the laptop by volume.

I wish Rossman didn't swear so much so I could watch his videos when my kids are in the same room but I think I have mostly droned out enough of what he is doing to not feel paranoid about his political point of view. I think he sperges out a lot, like one video where he was talking about how he uses soap and water to wipe his instead rear end instead of just dry toilet paper like a normal human. If you care that much about cleanliness get a bidet or wipes. . . I'm glad he is advocating for right for repair shops but I fast forward large parts of his videos just because they are kinda boring.

Anthony's the best thing to happen to LTT and actually got me to watch them on a regular basis, because I can't stand Linus' character. Linus actually seems pretty chill when he's not "on" (like when he's in Gamer'sNexus videos with Steve), which is a shame.

I don't find him particularly unreasonable considering the poo poo Apple pulls sometimes, but then I haven't seen his bidet video apparently. But he is pretty much who I was referring to in my previous posts, just listening to him ranting can be tiring.

On the other hand, have you tried the guy I linked previously? Sorin is like the opposite of Louis and pretty PG rated. Here's a decent example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLffdWhBfFU

All the Gamers Nexus stuff becomes "collectible", and new stuff sells because people want the new stuff.

Besides, it's all generic online store crap that could be made with a different name inside of a week.

Here it is. The video that made me finally say "gently caress this channel" and unsubscribe from Linus.

Far be it from me to be a fanboy of any product when it comes to Apple vs. Android but the way Linus always loving stretches some point super thin just to get some dig at Apple in any way he can its bizarre.

Like the whole "Hey, Apple offers 5 years of support for their devices but oh wait it's actually only 5 years from the launch of the phone so it's actually some sort of cloak'n'dagger bullshit!!" point was just insane. What is this dude's loving problem? Christ. He's reaching Louis Rossman levels of seeing shadows where there's not and that Adored guy's hatred against nVidia thinking they're the third reich's GPU division.

A bit of googling and that appears true. But I also couldn't help but laugh at the top result for " How long does android support phones:
"These phones are designed, sold, and maintained by Google, so they get updated when the latest versions of Android are available—on time, every time. Google also guarantees that level of supportfor at least two years for all majorAndroid updates, and an unprecedented three years for monthly security updates.Dec 19, 2017"

Either way, I think you are overreacting to Linus.
