And Steve gets to listen to the CEO of EVGA's insane audiophile sound system:

What's the point? Of course he's not going to say anything bad about it even if it actually is.

Not bad Youtube, only took me 5 times of flagging not interested and 5 page refreshes to get rid of Linus in my recommendations just because I subbed a retro PC channel.

...and now he's back again in the list.

I feel like Unbox Therapy also doesn't really know anything about the things he talks about. His videos are just like "omg look how cheap this Android phone is" and the entire video could just be summed up with the thumbnail.

At least Linus knows some stuff.

That fucker shows up in the recs in any video that is remotely consumer tech related. YT really likes pushing their megamillions yet trashy low-effort superstars.

If you are into old PCs then PhilsComputerLab is a really great channel, he has lots of videos with benchmarks and building tutorials that are super helpful.

Here's him building a 486 with a modern power supply and flash based storage:

Well, he's the only PC hardware guy I subscribed on YT.

I could care less about his gimmick, I just want to stop seeing his clickbaity face over and over in my YT recs whenever I watch aything tangentially related to PC hardware, despite flagging him as not interested for the zillionth time.

These YouTube channels with a gently caress-ton of cash flow seem to be about one advertising algorithm change away from bankruptcy. Especially as they move away from being original content that people want, and towards being popular for being popular.

I hope that day comes ASAP since:
1. The tears from clickbaiters who tied themselves up to a non-guaranteed source of income will be delicious
2. Without them anyway, there will still be no shortage of creators making actually good content
