I like Nexus for how in depth it is but the guy sounds so disinterested when he speaks.

But he does sound enthused? Just not fake-overdone enthused.

Seriously though, do you have any idea what I can search google for if em, a friend wants to build a shock box? I doubt "shock box" or "electrocute yourself" will get the desired google results.

Seriously, the modern ones you see in arcades use vibrations, instead of electricity, because actually zapping people is a giant liability. Their machines probably some sort of static generator?

Problem is, he didnít need to use it beyond, at most a still frame to make the video he did. That puts it under a different light copyright-wise.
Heís also got a history of misusing copyrighted material.
Also, heís fash garbage, but thatís more of a CSPAM thing.

Should I keep watching it? The first claim about heatsinks being pointless made me pause immediately, considering the VRM drama back with with the Core i9, because the mainboards lacked heatsinks and the manufacturers scrambled getting some on there right before release.

Thatís got more to do with the i9 being a)an Abomination That Should Not Be and b) on the Not-So-Little node that couldnít.

Found a guy who does teardowns of chargers. Not too Big Clive, but opening up a chargers did involve a rubber mallet and I'd not personally be happy pointing at stuff on a board with a metal spatula, even once I'd disconnected the battery and discharged the caps.

The guy made many mistakes, but the biggest was buying from the business section from Dell, the only people that buy from the business section are IT departments of businesses and universities, I can't really fault Dell for making their business section unfriendly because they all are.

The difference being that if youíre that size, Dell is far more friendly. They donít want to upset the applecart on a big contract.

I'm bit worried that they're moving things around; youtube video compression was already right on the line where it can sort-of handle ~most~ things, but it's surprisingly easy to make it give up and just display garbage.
If they're going to switch, I'd at least like to see statistical and perceptual similarity comparisons between the source, the old compression, and the new compression - although I doubt we're gonna get that.

Youtube is a lot more hostile against ISPs than Netflix is, though; the latter has the OpenConnect Appliances that any ISP can setup in their datacenter racks, which functions as a cache for Netflix content.

I've seen a lot of people say it's better, and it may very well be - but where are the SSIM and PSIM comparisons?

I know a little less about video compression than I do about audio compression, but anyone with a confetti cannon or the equivalent After Effects filter can demonstrate how quickly things can get bad the same way that songs (even officially-uploaded ones) can end up sounding like vocal fry:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtyi1vvXxKY
(Towards the end of the song, the crescendo is so powerful that it breaks most audio compression algorithms, and certainly all the ones offered by youtube - if you listen to a good FLAC rip of the song you'll hear very clearly what I'm talking about)

This video is not available?

Linus talks a lot about how much QA/due diligence he does when ordering new merch on The WAN Show, so it probably shouldn't be a surprise it's decent quality for what it is.

This would be the same Linus who did his QA/due diligence about advertisers and then promoted offshoring brexiteers, RAID shadow legends and nicehash?

His judgement is highly suspect.
