  1. Mh, I have no questions about 5g and none of my questions were answered. Perfect. There has been nothing so far that makes me excited about 5g. Sure it is probably faster, but it is just so limited in its use if you are not a heavy mobile user. At least it seems that way.
  2. Good luck with the new channel. Could be nice, could just be a shill channel with cheaper prices. But without content, this is just cynic guesswork. But it already has ~70k subs
  3. Take a break, go on vacation with your family and work it out with them and yourself.. A month or two, no problem. The channels work well enough while you are on a break, just dont let Riley jump around in front of the camera all the time ?
  4. Clickbait titles make consumers unwilling to watch the videos at some point. Clickbait titles generate an expectation that is above the expectation thata normal title would generate. And if you promise the latest, greatest most fascinatingest regularly but you don't deliver, in relation to the expectations you set, people tend to leave. A hypothetical headline: Did LG just create the best alround gaming monitor for the next decade? Content: LG created a monitor with an isp panel without any backlight bleed. Viewer: Is aware that the title is clickbaity, or at least hyperbole. The viewer would normally expect a video about a really good monitor. But because of the title, he now expects at least a really really good monitor, maybe even a really really really good monitor. Even if it is just subconsciously. And even if he is aware of the clickbaity nature of the title. But what the viewer gets is a video about a decent 1440p IPS monitor without backlight bleed. But with terrible I/O and below average setting options. But it only costs $250. And while this would definitely be a very good monitor for gamers on a budget, it is not what was promised in the title. It wasn't completely wrong, it just wasn't right either. Just because a statement has a shred of truth, elevating this little piece of truth to be the main focus point is bad manners at best, or misleading at worst. Repeat this often enough and people grow tired.
  5. Yes, that's the point. LTT either can't change it due to reasons like the algorithm, or won't change because they dont give a fuck while also having a memory like a sieve. But at some point your options as a viewer are exhausted. You can complain, critique, recommend, ignore, or just leave. Maybe thinking about clickbaity titles is like a drug and James, Riley, Alex and the other writers are just heavily addicted. Trapped in a nonsensical bubble. I probably wrote something similar like the above in the last topic about it too. Oh well.. they can still try and advertise this as another benefit of Floatplane: "nO cLiCkBaItY TiTLeS oN fL0AtPlAnE". But I dont have Floatplane, not sure if there are clickbait titles as well.
  6. Don't like it? Just unsub. If there is decent video coming around then youtube will likely put it into your recommendations anyway. Or into the "tech tab". Just step back for a while and check the channel maybe once a week. And although saying something like this in an official forum is not nice, it is the only other option you have. Deal with it or step away. You can change, but LTT surely won't as long as they don't see the sub- or viewer numbers decreasing. You as the viewer don't have to care about the algorithm, you as the viewer just care for the informational value and entertainment you can get out of it, and how much you are willing to put up with. If it annoys you to such an extent, then just stop. Youtube doesn't give a flying F about you, and its algorithm doesn't care about your opinion, Data driven decision-making or something like that.
  7. Thanks for the advice, that is something I didn't really consider. I have a gtx 1060, so depending on who you ask the answers are a flat no or a mixed yes, but not at max settings. I am not playing the latest and greatest, so that wouldn't be too much of a problem. The bigger factor is budget as I can't really go over 300€, and for most 27" in that category that is about the starting line.
  8. My current one is a BenQ G2420HDBL, a 24" 60hz monitor. I read several articles and comments that 27" 1080p might be a bit pixelated compared to the 24" version but didn't get around to actually taking a look and compare the resolution in our electronics stores. My face is ~ 70- 80cm (~2,3 feet) away from the screen. I am also not entirely sure if I necessarily want to go bigger, but i definitely want to go with a 144hz monitor as my new main device, compared to my 60hz one. I will keep mine as a second monitor, that's why i also tend to favor a new 24" monitor, for uniformity reasons. But that is also just a minor nitpick and neglectable. I don't want a curved one though. Yes there are different vendors but they have the same delivery time for the monitors.
  9. I have been looking for somewhat budget gaming monitors for a while now and found the aoc 24g2u and the 27g2u. 144hz, ips panel, good prices. Seems perfect. I am not sure yet if the pixel density on the 27" version will bother me compared to the 24" monitor, as both are 1080p monitors. And I am not sure if I can find proper comparison screens in our local stores. But when I looked at the delivery time, amazon as well as other stores have a delivery time of 2-3 months. I am not in a dire need for a new monitor, but I finally want to upgrade my old 60hz monitor, for gaming. Are there maybe some decent alternatives coming in the next months? Waiting 2+ months for a new monitor just to see better alternatives to arrive in the 150-250€ budget range is something I would like to avoid.
  10. It didn't feel they had much pressure. A good amount of cash and enough manpower per team. If you would go to a seller and ask if they can put 3 gaming rigs together for $1,8k, with peripherals and all, they might have gotten a decent deal. And they showed that they can get chairs/tables for free or dirt cheap. I was a big fan of the last one, where they were limited to old means of communication only, because that was something unique. I didn't mind them buying prebuilts, but they just had too much money available which made this not as interesting. My suggestion would be to buld a machine "through the times", where each part of the pc must be x years older than the previously used part. Case from the 80s, monitor from 85, mouse from the 90s, etc. or something similar to that. A different location would be nice, maybe during one of Linus' trips to various international conventions, building a limited rig on a different continent. Even the US would probably ok. Even if it is just so they get away from their known and trusted merchants. Maybe a collab with another techtuber? This way Linus wouldn't have to bring too much manpower with him.
  11. Heh. yea... More like 1080 full hd. But at that point i probably just take the cheapest 144hz they have, just to get it over with. I am so done with looking at monitors.
  12. A monitor. But I don't know what. I am dreading tomorrow when I have to go to our local electronics store to check them out.
  13. I liked the idea, and the first two episodes were interesting. But it wasn't super exciting. Maybe the budget was too large? Maybe there was just not enough to do for three people per team to induce some sense of urgency? My idea for another scrapyard wars would be to build a pc with parts from different "decades". For example that all the parts need to be 5 years apart in terms of age: Case from the 9180s, monitor from 1985, mouse from 1990, gpu from 1995 and so on. Or however you want to scale it for a more entertaining experience. I hope for more scrapyard wars in the future, it is fun to watch after all.
  14. Gleamio is sketchy anyway. Giving that website a hefty chunk of personal information without even getting to participate because of that stupid region limitation is super shady. And LMG does this time and time again.
  15. Very interesting video. But I could have watched it completely muted with a simple subtitle of "Linus enjoys a highly developed sound system", and would have gotten the same information out of that. But thats an inherent problem with videos about audio equipment. At least I now know that something like this exists.
  16. After 10 years, I thought a monitor upgrade would be nice, and I finally get a second monitor as I don't intend to throw the current one away. But looking through reviews, youtube videos and recommendations, I am more confused than ever, especially when it comes to what I want or need, for a budget of ~250€ ( $277 ). I am currently looking at three monitors and I am going to our local electronics store this weekend. I can read reviews and watch videos as many as I want but I also need to see them in action. My pc is a Ryzen 5 with a Palit GTX 1060 GPU. More than good enough for the games we regularly play: Rocket League, League of Legends, R6 Siege, Warframe and Final Fantasy 14. Good looking but not extremely demanding. My current monitor is a BenQ G2420DBL. The main uses are gaming and watching videos. My little brother also uses it for drawing and some photo/video editing. None of us is using it for anything professional. The most professional thing is the occasional office work. I want a 144hz monitor with good refresh rates. And if it comes with good color accuracy that would also be a nice plus. The monitors I am currently looking at are: Asus VG279Q This is the monitor I am most interested in buying, even though it is a bit above my budget. 144hz, good reaction times (like all those monitors) and apparently good color accuracy. I have read various comments about their motion blur reduction feature being unnecessary or not working properly. Or I might have misunderstood what they meant. Samsung C24FG73 It seems pretty good but has apparently a higher reaction time of 20ms? Maybe I am mixing it up with input lag, I am not entire sure if this is the same. AOC Gaming C24G1 144hz, good price for the 24" full hd version. I am not sure If I need a 27" monitor. I also never used a curved monitor. I heard they might not be too good for photo/video editing, but then again, we are no professionals. Just clips and memes lol. It has a TN panel, so color accuracy or saturation might not be the best. But as fas as I know now, my current BenQ monitor also has a TN panel. I read several comments about pixel errors and dead pixels in the amazon reviews. And as mentioned above, I am going to look at monitors this weekend in my local store. I doubt that they have any of the mentioned monitors, except for the AOC. Do you have any advice for me when it comes to what I should look for in the monitors they will show me? I accompanied my dad last year when he went looking for a new tv, and the differences in saturation, colors, blacks and sizes were a complete sensory overload and I fear that this might happen again. ?
  17. Either they had an argument in LMG, couldnt decide on a title, and now two people are trying to force their opinion onto the other one. Or they ridicule us viewers. Or whoever was in charge for the youtube upload copy/pasted the wrong title. Or whoever was in charge for this picked the wrong forum topic title. Pick one. Either way, those title changes are annoying.
  18. Are you willing to make a contract with me to prove your sales pitch is true? The last keyboard I will ever need? No? Thought so much. Credibility issues? The blind test wasn't really all too helpful. It helped the testers more with finding out which keyboard they prefer, without being biased. It is hard to test quality with a blind test. And the argument that people that use keyboards daily for work and gaming "can always figure out which is our really good keyboard, even in a blind test" is nothing more than an empty sales promise. On the other hand, if they had just used that one simple trick to improve keyboard quality, they might have gotten really good results. The price point is nice for what you get, if you like this type of keyboard. And if you find one that actually feels nice to you, while also heaving a high durability, what more could you possibly want for basic needs.
  19. This video is 450 seconds long, and shows roughly 40 seconds of the monitor in action, rounded up. including them changing settings and showing its I/O and flexible articulation. That is less, or maybe about the same time they used for their sponsor calls, merchandise ad and subscription tease. Maybe I forgot a clip that ads another 5-10 seconds, but even then it is quite lousy disappointing. I appreciate the explanations about back light strobing, motion blur reduction and variable refreshrate but this could have been done without that monitor, too.
  20. I noticed the competition to win a laptop. Is gleam.io. competition save? This looks hella sketchy when I see what privileges I grant that app. It reads as if it (more or less) owns my twitter account afterwards. Maybe I misunderstand something, some clarification would be cool.
  21. Maybe it is the EA strategy: 3 steps forward, 1 step back. Now they see it was a mistake and learned their lesson and they listen to viewer feedback. And now they will only do 2 ad videos and one cool video per week, instead of 3 ad videos and 1 cool video every 2 weeks ? I will probably just go back to lurker mode, and watch the interesting LTT videos once a month instead of LTT and TQ videos regularly when they release. It is a lot easier to filter out the uninteresting stuff this way. But I also don't know how to make an advertisment video about battery banks interesting. Then again, I am also not getting paid to think about that.
  22. How much do sponsors normally pay for something like this?
  23. Today I learned: TechLinked doesn't give a fuck about tech news. Nobody at TechLinked is even trying to do a good job hosting it because the idiots will watch whatever they produce. because they are all always learning anyways. Just like EA when they try to shift the microtransaction goal post. And that TechLinked doesn't actually use monday. Tongue in cheek? Maybe. Nonetheless, those small fragments of how all this works behind the scenes are always interesting to me.
  24. I shouldnt have added that sentence or rewritten it, sorry.
  25. I am an absolute amateur. I can clearly see who has the skills of a photographer and who doesn't, just by looking at how most of the pictures were arranged. But I have a hard time identifying why the better camera makes for a better photographer, except for a few pictures here and there. Most notably for this are the pregnancy pictures. Linus also has the advantage that he works very well under stress and pressure. From my pov, I prefer Brandon's picture of the professional athlete James over Linus' picture. The baseball caps are hard. Probably Linus > Brandon for me. Both pictures combined would make me buy the cap. Each on their own is lacking. One lacks the model, the other the logo. But damn, Brandon's picture looks sharp. I didn't like the hoodie photo. The water bottles are a clear win for Brandon. It was neat to see the trick he used so Colton would have a cheerful expression, by making him react to something he truly enjoys. I was mostly excited on how they would use that dog sculpture, but Linus had to use his signature skill and knocked it off the table. Thanks. Linus is the clear winner for me in this one. This was probably Brandon's worst photo in my opinion.. I get the impression of a photoshooting of a baby, surrounded by its toys. But the baby is a bowl of dog food. And the bowl looks like dry food where somebody did a huge dump on. But I would buy Brandon's dry food more than I would buy Linus' wet food. The headshots were both good. If it weren't for that light reflection on the windshield I would prefer Linus' over Brandons. Maybe if both photographers had the same goal, besides a headshot, this might have ben a better comparison. Maybe a set expression of the model might have workded as well, This way I feel you compare apples to oranges. The pre-natal photos are the ones were I as a beginner can clearly see the difference in cameras and the photopgraphers skills. Brandon's arrangement was great and if he had a camera that allowed him to better adjust to the colors of the sky and the grasses, his would have been infinitely better. I mean you can't really blame Brandon that his models weren't into it, looking like a sad couple that says farewell. But Linus' picture of the walking couple is the winner for me on this last challenge. But also not because his camera was better but because he took the right photo at the right moment and his models actually looked like they enjoyed it and. My guess is, if Brandon had taken this photo he might have picked an version where you can see more of the blue sky, instead of completely grey one, that is fully covered in clouds. I probably haven't enjoyed a video as much as this one for quite some time and hope to see more of or similar things like that. Bit of a shame with the upload- and resolution troubles.
