  1. Please get unRAID to do some type of Hackintosh support. 

     

    I want to run OS X, Windows, and Linux side by side by side. 

     

    Please. 

  2. Actually sometimes I use one to make the soundcloud version of the WAN Show. In this case there is no legality issue because while I am breaching the terms of service of YouTube I am not breaking any copyright laws.. just saying
  3. Yeah unfortunately this would put a lot of our partners in a kind of awkward position. Probably not going to happen.
  4. teleprompter remote.
  5. Pardon my brevity, I'm on a campsite with my kids (9m, 2.5y, 5y) without a computer at the moment (trying to take a week off but it never really goes that way) and I'm on my phone in between crises. It's always uplifting for us to hear stuff like this. Not just for me, but for the whole team. Its easy for us to get consumed by the negativity - especially in the YouTube comments - and to obsess over the like:dislike ratio on a video.. but posts like this remind us that while a few hundred career complainers are always going to be out there pressing thumbs down or saying we don't make enough videos or whatever there are folks out there who really *get* what we are trying to do : make FUN tech content. We strive for these things, but FUN doesnt always have have to teach, it doesn't always have to make sense, and it doesn't always have to appeal to everyone.. but that's what we are trying to do. And if you're having fun while you watch, then you get it. Im glad to hear we had a positive impact on your life. That kind of stuff means a lot to me. I know what it's like to not be able to get out of bed in the morning because you lack passion. PCs was my way out too
  6. We did say our content would always be free and I have backpedaled on that here. I think its it's an important distinction that this content is not of the same type as our normal stuff - the best analogy I can come up with is that it's kind of like bloopers or extras on the DVD release. No one expects to get that stuff when they stream on Netflix. Not everyone will agree that that matters. Some people will still be mad. But business realities cause us to change our course sometimes. In a span of months we had ~30% of our monthly revenue pulled out from under us last year. This year the sponsored video business is way way down for a variety of reasons including that there are just a lot more influencers than there were last year and there is only a finite number of brands. And we are not the most sponsor friendly YT channel out there. I could just lay people off, but that's not the direction I want for Linus Media Group. And WHO would you have me abandon? People here are people, not "headcount". All I can do is say "sorry", learn my lesson about ever making a 100% promise about our business direction, and move on.
  7. Those videos don't really have a place on YouTube. They are very raw and would hurt the channel algorithmically. At this time we are planning to keep these quick&dirty cell phone cam videos exclusive to the platform. Its behind the scenes content akin to DVD extras, not the main event. We did say in the past we would upload everything to YouTube but with the way YouTube plays games with the algorithm burying the channel if we put up stuff with less mainstream appeal and with us looking for ways to give extra value to Floatplane subscribers without hurting the regular content this was a single stone that hit both birds. Everything I didn't mention was "okay". For my part I'm trying to focus more on the experiential aspect of finished goods devices these days. There are literally a hundred publications where you can get this other info. We aren't trying to be XDA. We want to be supplementary tech entertainment that gives you a good look at the product and discusses more of he high level positioning in the market. Plz see above.
  8. Hi IO noticed JayzTwoCents has an "Industry Affililiate " tage under his name. How do i become one? I run a growing tech channel on YoiuTube and have 133 Subscribers. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/megabittech

      Couple snippits from the CoC. Not entirely sure what did make jayz an industry affiliate... But sorry to say its probably not happening for a beginning youtube channel :/

  9. Not that simple. Eyeballs are eyeballs.. and my "tech savvy" audience is (in some way) worth a LOT less than a more mainstream one. A view on LTT is not worth more than a view on some other tech channel.
  10. Good news! You live in Vancouver now. You can't afford one anyway
  11. Today I also: - trimmed hedges - reorganized shed - bought new kitchen faucet at Home Depot - played with kids - replied to 60+ emails - put seat covers back in car now that they've had the vomit cleaned off them - cleaned up cat pee - also I think I ate at some point...
  12. People who don't run businesses often say this as though it's some kind of magical free pass to get stuff You still have to earn the money. The only difference is that you don't have to pay INCOME TAX on the money you earned that you spent on it. Also, not everything can be written off immediately. Equipment and construction - anything that you'll be using for several years is never fully written off. You write a chunk of it off the first year, then a chunk more the second year, etc etc etc, but you never get to write off the full value. Don't imagine "writing things off" means you don't have to earn the money to pay for them
  13. We invest heavily into our staff/business operations because I have a particular set of "end game" goals that MIGHT be different from other content creators. Making great content that gets a ton of views doesn't take a huge team. Trying to build a sustainable business operation that (if all goes according to plan) could be capable of running seamlessly without yourself someday does. There is a ton of merit to both approaches. Neither is "correct". And to be clear, this is not an announcement or even a HINT that I'm going anywhere anytime soon. It's just the kind of thing where if I were to get hit by a bus tomorrow I would want my family to inherit a strong, sustainable business, and I would want all of my staff to still have jobs.
  14. Hello, Linus, I`m a Chinese college student from Beijing Institution of Petrochemical Industry and also I`m an enthusiastic of tech things. Now, I`m hurrying doing my semester task, we`ve been asked to analyze how factors can influence the whole in mathematical ways in this week. It`s called Analysis of Variance or ANOVA. This can show how much a factor influences the whole.

    I choose to analyze how much CPU and GPU can influence overall performance. I`ve got though your videos to find date but obviously that`s not enough. So I`m begging for some benchmark result to calculate on. I will also email you back when I get result which can show you how much those influence are. So, I need some CPU and GPU bench mark which every situation have been done for more than 4 times. Never mind those CPUs and GPUs are, I just need them to be different.

    You`re testing results for old videos will be fit perfectly. You are so nice, please email me those data.

    Data in Table1 better to be test result from only CPU soft wares like CPUZ,Fritz Chees

    Data in 2 better to be test result from only GPU soft wares like 3Dmark

    Data in 2 better to be test result that combines, like Crysis sky frame rate test,Heaven or something else.

     

     

    And I need something like this(format isn`t impotant, I just need those data ,thank you very much)
