Imagine having him as a boss

Whenever they're vlogging their office for some project and they go into the editor den to announce they're doing something, none of the staff seem happy. Hmmm

I don't have a link but Steve mentioned on one video I remember that he he chose the name for the site 'very early' and basically regrets it now

He should really just buy a new domain, rebrand, and have the old domain redirect to the new one. He can change the name of the youtube channel too. This stuff isn't written in stone

I like Jay, he seems like a decent person. In his most recent video he made a build for a friend who's a special ed teacher.

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

Wait what the gently caress

Watched the first couple of minutes and I honestly don't know if he's being sarcastic or not when he literally goes "So Eaton said we have to have a bunch of clearance behind the UPS for airflow I guess so I knocked out a wall and made this space behind it, which is great cause now I can store all this poo poo in there!" and also still having 3" thick sound deadening still there where the wall was.

It looks like the sound material is gone by the end of the video and he only stores a little stuff so maybe someone explained this to him by the point

lmaoooooo

e: this reminds me that way, way, way back long ago in some video Linus unironically used the word "feminazi". For the life of me I can't remember what video it was

You would be if you'd just buy a modmat!

I bought their poster that's a metro-style map of the x570 chipsets I/o lanes, and their toolkit. Figured I should support Steve's hairstyle

Yes, because the purpose of his channel is not to provide useful information - it is to entertain. If you want to be advertised to while being entertained, watch MKBHD. If you want useful information, watch Steve.

But what's entertaining about a video that's entirely advertising the phone? And passed off as some sort of meaningful review, even. It's bizarre

Merch has always been everything in the creative scene. If you ever wanted to actually support a band buying their CD is cool and all but going to their gig and buying their shirts is way better. It's not surprising that Youtube creators have discovered the same.

Yeah that's why I bought a few things from the GN store. Steve's hair product won't pay for itself

Always touch anything that could possibly be live with the back of your hand so that if you muscle spasm you won't grab it tighter

When working on tube amps(guitar kinds) generally you only probe with one hand and leave the other behind your back. The tubes can get 400-500v going on.

Yeah while wearing rubber soled shoes too. You want as much resistance between you and the ground as you can get

It's great that Linus (who is arguably the most shilly of techtubers) feels the need to declare that he's" not an anticapitalist activist" in his pro Right to Repair video to reassure the chud section of his fanbase.

bourgeois liberals and chuds are not the same thing
