I can't wait for Linus to go on vacation again so his staff can do whatever they want for a week again.

LTT did that already. Mustard won. Nutella not so much.

I wouldn't say any specific bit of my iFixit kit has a significant amount of heft. The driver base is heavier than, say, a standard plastic handle screwdriver but that's about it.

I mostly only pull mine out for when I'm doing maintenance on my desktop and so far the bits have held up a lot better than the previous driver kit I bought.

well why not posted:

The gold controller is cool. Absolutely awful use of money, but if you watch LTT and expect him to be responsible with cash that's on you.

I mean the man has a personal goal of making sure every employee of his can afford to buy a house. Even if he doesn't pay the best in the business, compared to most business owners he's already being irresponsible with his cash in, uh, maybe a good way?

Not going to lie, I wish I had an employer that was hell bent on making sure I could afford to buy a house.

Number of Steam games owned.

Sounds like they'd like Floatplane.

The trick is that character's name isn't the title of their game.

That's Link.

i have to admit when they suggested that i thought "someone, somewhere, has built water cooling out of a faucet somehow."

LTT did just this during a week when Linus was on vacation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFXyyJyEtVI

The only piece of LTT merch I've ever purchased was one of their beanies. It shrunk so bad after the first wash that it no longer fit on my head.

$500 RGB gaming keyboard just makes sense but a luxury kitchen appliance, just a bridge too far. Next week LTT will review a Rolex.

They did rightly review it pretty negatively in the video, at least. $500 for a toaster that can't even toast bread evenly is pretty damning, especially when you can get a toaster that toasts just as well, if not better, for $20-$30 from your local Target.

horst had obviously watched this video and was trying to talk about how actual good toasters worked but no one would engage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OfxlSG6q5Y

I am a happy Patreon supporter of Technology Connections and that very video made me go out and buy an actually decent toaster that toasts things evenly and does it well.

It was still considerably cheaper than that $500 touchscreen monstrosity.

Hell for the price of that touchscreen toaster you could buy TWO (2) backpacks from LTT STORE DOT CUUUUUUUM!!!?!

Lighting just one of them on fire could toast as many slices of bread as you could throw at it until you put it out and exchange it for a new one via the "just trust us" warranty.

*just trust us warranty does not actually cover making toast with the backpack.

Osprey will send a new backpack back and couple of slices of perfectly toasted toast.

For $250 that backpack better be able to make a perfect slice of toast and write my shitposts on these forums, with a warranty included. :colbert:

Steve won't gently caress you unless your PC benchmarks well and doesn't use a power supply that is a fire risk.

But I guarantee he'll start doing schlieren imaging testing of your PC in the afterglow.

Slumming it in Linus' basement like people do in internet cafes in Japan so Linus can afford to pay his mortgage.
