    CtW got a reaction from PeterT in Experiences with non-techies   
    Recently when I was at a party, I told the group of adults i was talking to that I had built my own PC.
     
    These were the responses: (one in particular is funny)
     
    A few people: "Wow! I had no idea that you could do that! That is really cool! How do you do that?"
    Me: 'It is basically adult legos, It is a ton simpler than you think."
    Those people: "How much have you spent on it?"
    Me: "~$1600"
    One of the people: "Can it do word processing?" (MS Word)
    -When that person said that I mentally facepalmed EXTREMELY hard.-
    Me: Of course it can, any new computer is able to do that. Of all things you can possible do with a computer, using MS Word is one of the least intensive. How could a computer that I have spent that much on not do word processing?
    That person: "Oh really, that's all I do so I was just wondering. That's pretty cool. What video chip are you using?"
    After that, the person and I began to discuss some things and I found out that he dealt with hardware in the 90's and is essentially stuck there when it comes to tech knowledge,

    CtW got a reaction from J.b091 in What do people hate about Apple?   
    The things that bug me about apple are are:
    Lack of open-ness Lack of ability to customize/upgrade hardware  Amount of proprietary standards for software and hardware Stubborn-ness in regards to the adoption of features that have become standard in the industry (cough NFC cough) Some of their marketing Patent trolling  Lack of window snap on OSX (not having it pisses me off so much when ever I try to use a Mac) Staying with OSX so long that people call it "O-S-X" instead of "O-S-Ten" and not at least hinting at OSXI (OS 11)

    CtW got a reaction from Speaking of Spaces... in Discord is now asking for your money in the form of "Discord Nitro".   
    Well they have to make money somehow. At least they are just adding new features rather than charging for ones that were previously free.

    Just going to add that Project Veritas is a fucking awful publication known for misleading people (ref: Washington Post Vs Project Veritas)

    I went by an audio equipment store the other day that had a sign by a window that read: "We will make your iTunes sound better!"

    i try to avoid her as best i can.
     
    Here's a more recent story (its from Monday)
     
    Over the last week, my family and I went to visit my grandparents in Arizona and my sister happened to for get her mouse at home. She then begged me to let her use my mouse (a Razer Orochi that I love dearly) so she could play TF2 (i'm really proud that I have gotten her to play it a ton). I walk into the main room of our hotel room (its like a condo so there are 2 bedrooms and a main room) and find my mouse with the micro USB cable that connects to it stuck in at a MASSIVE angle sitting on top of her closed laptop. You could imagine how pissed I was. After I yelled at her she said that "It didn't work when I plugged it in so I left it there and went on my phone." ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?! YOU BORROW SOMEONE'S MOUSE, NEARLY BREAK THE CONNECTOR AND JUST LEAVE IT THERE AFTER IT DOES NOT WORK??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
     
    Over the rest of the vacation, she complained about me not letting her use it. She clearly has no idea how trust works.

    CtW got a reaction from owluitar in [OC3D] Thermaltake is copying more than just CaseLabs products   
    This topic could be seen as an extension to the previous one about the same issue (link http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/379036-vice-president-of-caselabs-calls-out-thermaltake-for-directly-copying-their-designs-computex-2015/)and will go into more detail about things detailed in the OC3D article as well as TTL's thoughts on the issue.
     
    Source http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/thermaltake_designs_at_computex_2015_look_familiar/1
     
    This article will basically cover the issues besides the caselabs one as well as some QC issues. It's a big, but important read.
     
    The article goes on to talk about some alarming quality issues with Thermaltake's liquid cooling products.
    TTL made a lengthy video about this, covering everything in the article.

     
    Edit: DazMode (seller of liquid cooling and modding supplies) has put out a shorter video on the same topic. The video does contain some strong language so don't watch it if you get offended by that stuff.

     
    Now for my opinion:
    I completely agree with what the author of the article as well as TTL have said in that Thermaltake has blatantly ripped off other companies' designed and, in regards to their liquid cooling products, have made some harmful design choices in the name of cost cutting. As many people have stated in the other thread, this is just unacceptable and needs to be dealt with. I could understand if Thermaltake wanted to work with some manufacturers as OEMs to create a cheaper product that was more accessible to end users while still giving credit where credit is due, but this is wrong. I think that this has definitely left a huge hole in their reputation as a company and will probably lead to some form of litigation from CaseLabs and maybe Fractal Design. 
     
    TL;DR: Thermaltake ripped off designs and made some really bad liquid cooling products.

    Who actually gives a shit. I don't think people will be forgetting what phone they have. This does nothing for the phone other than remind you you have decent audio components. This logo isn't news.

    CtW reacted to dizmo in LG's newest Phone has a serious branding problem   
    This post is ridiculous, as are many of the things you've said.
    They've done next to nothing to earn their logo on the phone? They've been a long time partner with LG, they include B&O headphones in the box. You even quoted "LG even makes some unspecific claims about B&O Play contributing to tuning the audio system." I'd say that more than warrants some kind of logo on the device itself.
     

    Does this mean that they value a single product instead of their own company?
    No, it doesn't.
     
    Where else do you think they should have put the logo? On the front? LG logos have always been on the bottom, so should they change how they design the exterior of the phone to accommodate a logo? That to me says more than what they've done.

    More than happy to take my content elsewhere for you instead.  I understand there are no exceptions, but at the end of the day the staff on this site need to decide if LTT wants to be taken seriously or remain a back yard for youtube and that professional modders say "wait you post there?" to.
     
    All sponsored mods are advertising.  So by allowing them you allow major companies to advertise in this space, but a personal website link in a signature is deemed too far.
     
    Don't need to deal with moderators happy to wave a stick so that they can feel more important than they really are.
