Speaking of listening on headphones, something I wonder on their videos, especially ones with Linus, why does the audio sound all weird and choppy? I presume it's hard to notice or they would have done something about it. Is it an audio compressor they are using? Or are they auto-tuning Linus's voice?

He seems pretty serious about this.

When I clicked it he was talking about if he died tomorrow his wife & kids would be taken care of and there were a lot of people saying "Don't do it" so I probably clicked at a really awkward time.

They didn't say it wouldn't be a big deal, they said "buy a computer NOW" was a stupid sentiment, and that if you had an adequate PC running out to panic buy new poo poo was stupid.


I'm pretty sure that's what Linus's video actually said too (not gonna lie the title is clickbait), just that if you were gonna upgrade do it now. I don't feel like watching the video again to confirm exactly what he said though.

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.

Yeah on a serious note, I've watched one of his videos, it was "cool tech" or something like that where he reviewed some compact Bluetooth speaker, and said the company also has a 5000W (or something) literally impossible rated speaker and didn't question it. Like the most you can get out of a N American outlet is 1440W, and no you're not going to be storing that much power in capacitors in a tiny cube. It's a loving scam.

Here, I found it, Dope Tech.

You're wrong about this. Plenty of appliances (most hairdryers, many electric kettles/coffee makers, high end microwaves) are 1500W+. Normal power outlets are 15 amp, which is 120Vx15A=1800W, and 20 amp outlets are not uncommon, which is 2400w. That said yeah, you're still not driving a speaker with 4500W output off a normal outlet, it's a fundamentally ridiculous thing to say and any tech expert should pick up on that instantly.

Also two 4500W speakers in a room would not be "over 100 decibels", it would be "I instantly became completely deaf and also died from a brain hemmorhage."

In some cases at least max continuous draw on a 15A circuit should only be 12A, 1500W is 12.5A which is probably close enough, I am not an electrician however, just know that usually for continuous use the breakers are 80% of capacity so that's why an EVSE on a 14-50R with 50A breaker only charges at 40A.

If the clip was carrying any significant amount of current itself it would get super hot pretty quick, but not as fast as it blew itself up. Yes I might happen to have had a paperclip shaped mark on my finger for a few days 😂

The merch revenue is way higher than I expected. No wonder they push it so hard.

I don't get the appeal of merchandise, unless it's a charity organization like Saveafox or something. Especially underwear. Yikes. I couldn't get into a YouTube channel that much that I'd want other people to know I watch it. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I appreciate that he said he changed manufacturers of their shirts or something because the working conditions at the factory were not okay.

I’m really loving tired of Linus‘s teeshirt lottery scam.

He’s doing another limited run of T-shirts and people are straight up asking if this one has a prize connected he’s like” oh no no no no no I would never do such a thing but if you buy the shirt something might happen.”

They deserve to have Canada‘s legal arm up their rear end for this, it is obvious what’s going on here.

I'm Canadian and I worked for a visual effects company and you can read between the lines and see what a miserable place that could be to work. The misery in the editing dept any time they're shown is palpable. Linus constantly jokes about how he's the boss and his is the only opinion that matters. The whannock server saga, the time they thought they could dump all their backups to google drive, the "why we don't license windows" video that I refused to watch, they're operating as a fly by night but have a sizable number of staff who are constantly putting out fires due to jerry rigged solutions.

Yes having Intel pony up for a 5k USD home tech upgrade is dope AF but it was like 5 on-camera personalities that got that treatment.

LOL
Don't know what the whannock server is, but I know they've crashed without backups, yeah that's dumb.

They didn't actually think they could use Google drive as a backup.

If you watch the license video you will see they license Windows properly.

It's insane how jealous Linus makes people.
