LTT's newest video is amazing. Alex is an absolutely perfect complement to Linus.

He's very sweaty by the end of the video. Which is weird.

In that situation, Linus didn't break a seat, need tyres or oil, he took the car apart and then did pikachu shocked face when broadcasting him voiding his warranty to his YouTube channel bit him in the rear end.

Opening A Machine Cannot Void The Warranty.

Apple was being a bunch of dicks about it.

It wasn't that it was opened, it was that it was abused, which it was. they destroyed the thing when they opened it. I'm not an Apple defender either, but there's no way the repair should have been covered by warranty.

Also, Linus wasn't even trying to get a warranty repair, he was willing to pay full price just for a repair but Apple doesn't really do repairs, they do replacements and a replacement was going to be very very costly.

Yes. Linus basically said I BROKE IT, PLZ FIX, BILL ME WHATEVER IT COSTS. Apple denied it out of some kind of rear end in a top hat bullshit principle.

Because he only took it apart to beef it up, something that does in fact void the warranty.

Also untrue.

I'm not rewatching that dumb video again, but from memory he just had a pile of retail keys no a shelf and went "see we got keys! We good!", ignoring the fact there's no way he's complying with MS's licensing terms, there's way better ways to license it as a business that would be 100 times easier to stay in compliance and actually activate them.

But then, he is also the guy that had a dumb giant RAID monstrosity that he had to pay a shitload of money to recover data from when a disk died.

Microsoft licensing also generally allows use of products in dev and test environments without paid licenses. At least if you have a corp SA agreement.

The idea that you should activate a copy of Windows installed for 3 days on a test machine for a video or validation is insane.

Every time I use my iFixit screwdriver I unironically find myself thinking "what a quality product, I'm so glad I bought this". It's a solid metal handle, feels well constructed. The bits haven't shown any sign of damage.

100x this. It's at the perfect intersection of price and quality. You can absolutely buy better screwdriver kits, but you cannot get a better value.

I feel like propping up criticism onto his race's stereotype is a bad crutch when the dialogue isn't funny to begin with. Maybe there is some sort of joke I'm missing but it just seems like a thinly veiled way to talk poo poo about something without wanting to seem like the bad guy.

This. Any stereotyping bullshit aside, the comedy is completely missing and uses the LOL FUNNY ACCENT as a crutch for extremely thin and easy jokes. It's worse than when a comedian brings a guitar or piano or guitar on stage to "sing" jokes that aren't funny and need life support.

So this random video popped up in my feed, and I do kinda get a bored kick out of watching home gamers build garbage benches and furniture.

I am sitting there thinking wow, this dude sounds so much like 8-Bit Guy, it's scary.

And then look who pops in at 8:30. The world is too small.

Really? Is there some kind of 'me too' sort of stuff going on here?

I've never been able to watch the guy because he looks like a sludge monster and has the posture of a turtle, but he certainly looks like the kind of guy that would be a sex offender registry so nothing would really surprise me.

Thatís some pretty aggressive extrapolation. You can just say heís a nerd with questionable hardware restoration/analysis ďpracticesĒ and some broader political opinions you donít dig and a bizarre need to performatively get weird in Subways.

I mean I find his taste in sandwiches at least as alarming as his need for a rifle in there.

As an enjoyer of silence, I actually really dig the concept here. I wonder how a card with a lower TDP than a 3080 would hold up here.

I want this badly. I will not pay $900 for it though.

So she hosed up and didn't reply to emails when she thought she did and then went to accuse Linus of ghosting him. It turned into a huge clusterfuck.

I think Linus's response to Naomi on today's WAN show was reasonable and he acknowledges that Naomi was completely within her right to not agree to a meeting for a lot of reasons and how he responded later in the worst ways to her.


That tweet is not public.

I googled it because I donít know who this guy is but I find the 3070 in a definitely-OEM computer case hilarious. But yeah itís him, whoever he is. More power to him. Unless he sucks, then less power to him, but you canít go lower than EVGA bronze.

He sucks. Generally one of the driving philosophical voices behind US foreign policy posture for the last 40 years, namely meddling in everything everywhere at all times. He's softened up a bit but still sucks because he still advocates for the "end of history" and the creation of a monopolar world with the US as its center even as he's lost his taste for achieving that with military force.
I am sure a goon will show up and tell me he's brilliant and I am dumb, but whatever.
