  1. I might try THEIR forums for this one... Pretty "out there" goal.
  2. basically. NVIDIA's features (especially NVENC which is awesome) have become part of our workflows for lots of things. It would take a significant performance advantage for AMD for me to consider foregoing the features NVIDIA offers for a personal build. YMMV.
  3. When your postal service is heavily subsidized to stimulate your export-based economy, you have these kinds of options. In Canada there *is* no 6-week option for $2 or we'd offer it. Sorry
  4. No, it's because you derailed the conversation to talk about speedrunning lol. Anyway in response to the OP's question, BS1, then Infinite. I wouldn't recommend playing 2. It's basically the same game as 1, but without a soul. I was sooo bored.
  5. Went from Stealth to new Stealth, ended up hating the keyboard. Using XPS 13 2-in-1 now and on the fence about not having a USB type A and an HDMI port...
  6. I disagree the Pixel 4 is 'objectively worse'. For many people Apple's OS and business practices are back enough that they would consider a Pixel 4 to be a better option.. and having a chunk cut out of their display might be the final nail in the coffin. So we're left with "was the statement inflammatory to a misleading degree?". After reviewing again and taking community feedback, I decided it was. Sorry. All I can do is fix it at that point, but naturally another subset of the audience will be pissed off about that. The silent majority doesn't care about any of this... We react to it because we care about the general sentiment in our community because positivity and interacting with our awesome community is one of the best perks of our jobs and we want to make sure we protect it.
  7. The review contains both positive and negative components. Also, punctuation is important. For the 'corner cut' title, we added a question mark to reflect a question many of our viewers seemed to be asking about the Pixel 4 in the video comments. SEO/click-through optimization is more art than science, and we're constantly learning new things that work/don't work, and make people happy/piss them off. It's a super-fine balancing act. The first day of click-through on that video (~10%) was better than we've had in ages. But people were salty, so we've found new techniques that work, and a line that a portion of our community doesn't like crossed. That's good to know, and we'll file it away with the rest of what we've learned over the years.
  8. The title and thumbnail are designed to get people to watch the video. They are not the content. The title was changed because people accused us of using clickbait. I re-watched the video and felt like it was a fair criticism, so I changed it. The content inside the video didn't change. There's no psychological warfare going on here
  9. I wasn't aware of any of these issues, and the rest of the streamers we collaborated with were chosen by NVIDIA. Frankly I don't think any of this affects the results of our test, but I'm disappointed that Grimmmmz used copyright law for something other than what it was intended for. With that said, if someone was physically driving by my house honking their horn to interrupt my filming session (and potentially use the recording to dox me) I would certainly understand the temptation to use any means I could to get that clip pulled down.. I can see this one from both sides...
  10. You say that as though the apple dialer also takes number entry seriously. I have to enter ALL 10 digits of a number that's in my address book rather than just entering the first few and letting it auto-complete. Why would that be? These features cost nothing to add and could easily be disabled for people who find them confusing.
  11. Yes, it's coming back soon!! Definitely something we're exploring (along with a larger water bottle), but nothing firm to share yet.
  12. YT doesn't necessarily provide all transcode options for archived (infrequently-accessed) content.
  13. As you've already pieced together, there are a lot of different types of sponsorships (affiliate programs, direct video sponsorship, product placement, pre-rolls, etc) but honestly speaking, you should be in channel building mode rather than worrying about any of that right now. At a couple hundred views per video you haven't broken through the threshold where sponsors will want to talk to you, and even if they do, it could negatively impact your growth. Think of it this way: at a $3-4 CPM, even if a sponsor paid for mentions in 10 videos a month on your channel, that's like $5. They would spend more paying someone to fill out the cheque and mail it than they would be paying you. Keep at it, and good luck though.
  14. Unfortunately we cannot ship from the US at the moment We're working on better shipping options but it will take some time.
  15. It's not enough water for a whole day. It's more "outing-sized" We'll do a bigger one eventually, but personally I don't find there's a one-size-fits-all water bottle size so I plan to just use both sizes regularly once we get that sorted. Sometimes I don't feel like lugging around a huge thing.
  16. Let me find out where that video is. Floatplane is still beta and I know what happened with that tech linked episode is the site uploaded was down... Linus
  17. Honestly I don't get why people are attacking the OP... I didn't wear my nerdiness on my sleeve when I met my wife. Why would I? For a large subset of the female population, that ain't sexy. And that doesn't mean they're bad people or something. Every situation is different, and every social clique has different norms. Chillax. Edited an epic typo... Said "neediness" instead of nerdiness (though both are probably true...)
  18. Mack Weldon's underwear IS excellent. It's even more expensive than ours last time I checked though
