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.

Is his audience actually self identified gamers though? He has like zero content catering to that subset. It's literally all benchmarks and teardowns (of cards and companies)

Hasn't Linus said before he only does Apple videos because the profit margin is insane?

Doesn't Gamers Nexus have all that too? Granted his sponsor spots are better (EVGA CLC hair cooling and cat website still make me smile) but he also does merch plugs if he uses the modmat or tool set

Yeah, but he does it organically as in "hey we're gonna use our tools and our mod mat to take this thing apart" instead of Linus' oh BY THE WAY BUY MY UNDERWAR/AWTER BOTTLE AND ALL THIS poo poo in your face every loving time.

True, I guess it doesn't really bother me

GN did some pretty interesting stuff recently with that bizarro motherboard they found in the Chinese market along with the lovely triangular case.

I love when GN does random Chinese stuff. Might explain why I'm a big fan of Strange Parts too

I think Steve died a little when he had to say Anime Waifu Edition GPU.


All of you are complaining about Steve's dry delivery, but this video is amazing *because* of the dry delivery of all the waifu puns and entendres.

That's the first LTT video I actively avoided. Like normally if it's a dumb concept I'll at least keep it as background noise in case something dumb/interesting happens. But this was a misstep

Linus mentioned in this latest live stream about not driving his Volt enough to use gas in a while and he wants to add fuel stabilizer. I really hope he doesn't do that, fuel management on that car is 110% managed by the car itself and he'll probably break something :(

Endymion FRS MK1

What I wanted to get at is the Volt being one of the few very well engineered GM cars. He's worried that since his trips are short enough to only be on battery, the fuel in the tank will go stale. Problem is, the Volt (even the first gen ones) was designed to prevent this. The fuel tank itself is pressurized for one. Second, if it detects only battery usage for six weeks, it'll automatically run an engine maintenance mode to make sure everything is running properly and burn a tiny bit of fuel (If mine runs it's around ~0.05gal). It'll run this every six weeks after with no fuel usage. And finally, if the system detects an average of a year with old fuel it'll run a fuel maintenance mode to burn old gas. The manual even states adding fresh fuel then allowing fuel maintenance to run will maximize time between this happening.

Combined with the fact that I'm pretty sure he's going to be commuting with gas within the year he literally has nothing to worry about

Edit: Not saying anyone above me is wrong, you're all correct, just clarifying that the Volt is a special case in that it's somehow more idiotproof than normal

Haven't watched it yet but we got another Angry Steve video. I'm glad that he seems to feel secure enough in his place in the industry and his connections to be taking shots at people who deserve it.

Yessssss

MKB on the other hand, I don't understand how anyone can watch. Guy's had no problem exposing himself as willing to openly shill for outright scammers, IDK how anyone can bother watching anything he does after that.

I used to enjoy him but for some reason this year it feels like something changed. Like everything is much more corporate and a glorified infomercial. As weird as this sounds I think I started noticing when on his podcast he offhandedly mentioned Apple's style guidelines about not using an article with their products. For example, "The camera on iPhone is amazing". The more I watched the more I realized he does it to other phones as well and it drives me nuts.

I've switched to GSM Arena for actual reviews and Mr Whose The Boss for reviews/entertainment

Edit: Yes that definitely soured me on him. His recent Zuck interview has me very much thinking of finally unsubscribing.

Agreed. I want to see more Buick's, more 5000W bluetooth speakers, and more $50k+ worth of used engineering/prototyping/CNC equipment to make horribly stupid ideas because all the writesr are hacks not to mention more videos' of going into Anthony's basement apartment filled with furry poo poo.

I mean unironically I do want the bolded. LTT is goofing off with tech and the occasional tip and I love it. If I want serious advice I'll watch GN or HUB

Are they actually decent? All the photos and videos of them kinda made them seem pretty cheap. On par with your typical low cost house brand toolsets from big box hardware stores.

The printing of the labels on the drivers were kinda trash but I think they fixed it in newer runs? The tools themselves are solid and feel great

I want Anthony to have a nice mantlepiece where he can place all of his probably furry related plushies. I also just want him to get a regular series where he talks about more technical things but that's likely the coldest take at this stage.
