  1. Have considered getting a projector for several years now but its always seemed like a big hassle to set one up. A short throw projector like this would be absolutely perfect for a home setup so you wouldn't have to run crazy long cables up the wall and across the ceiling. Finger's cross that I win one of these bad boys.
  2. I've got a CODE Keyboard with MX Clears that I can't imagine replacing with anything. But this keyboard would be great for my brother.
  3. Just want to jump in and give a big shout out to LinusTech for taking all the extra time to come in here and respond to everybody that he has and to try to clarify what is going on as much as he can. I should also remind him that he probably needs to get some sleep because I understand that they are filming the new Scrapyard Wars all week this week and he needs to get his rest so he doesn't forget to factor in the cost of the whole machine, and not just the GPU when determining price to performance :). But seriously, when i saw the the new Vessel pay thing yesterday I was only slightly "upset" because I wanted to know if there was a better way to give LMG my $20 instead of giving it to Vessel. But if their partnership with Vessel means that they are able to create something that they otherwise wouldn't have been able to fund then I saw that is great news. Anybody that is acting entitled about not getting shit for free need to grow up, stop acting like a spoiled 12 year old. Seriously. If you don't think Linus and all the people at LMG don't work their ass off to create content then you are out of your mind. Do they make mistakes? Sure. Could they make more stuff? Maybe. Could they make better videos? Probably. But this is the real world, its not perfect. They haven't even been in their new office for a year and they have had a lot of growing pains. It wasn't that long ago that the whole show was Linus and Slick in a garage wearing multiple sweatshirts and a jacket talking about computer stuff. They have come a long way. Just want to add that I hope you guys keep up the good work. I have really enjoyed watching a lot of the content that you guys put out. Scrapyard Wars are an absolute joy to watch. Holy Shit and the Workshop are both great newer formats that I have enjoyed. That Fallout build was crazy, not to mention the Christmas build with glitter. Just keep doing what excites you and I am sure that excitement will shine through.
  4. Appreciate the response. I can understand technical limitation in terms of being tied to using different platforms. My guess would be that the only way around that is to start hosting video files on your own servers to either stream video or allow people to download them and that is obviously just not an option. The only other partial option would be to keep videos unlisted and send the links to Patreon subscribers but those links would just immediately get shared everywhere so it would negate itself. Maybe a year from now YouTube will have more options on how content creators can provide videos to subscribers. I could easily see myself paying another small fee to subscribe to specific channels for extra content, not sure if that is the direct YouTube even wants to take, though. I guess for now paying the $20 to Vessel isn't the worst thing ever. Also, am I the only one that find the teespring sweatshirts unwearable? You keep mentioning (and wearing) that fancy new sweatshirt from whatever fancy manufacturer with that fancy logo and fancy pockets. Is that ever going to become a thing? I totally want to buy one.
  5. At the top of the forum under "more" you can go to the Store page. There are bronze, silver, and gold badges that you can pay for.
  6. I think $20 a year is a totally reasonable price but I just wish there were other/better options to give me the same benefit as getting LMG content on time rather than one week late. I support ChannelSuperFun on Patreon, have purchased a sweatshirt (though that sweatshirt from Teespring has to be the worst sweatshirt I have ever purchased, literally can't even wear it), pay for YouTube Red (watching LMG as well as a dozen plus other people's content in addition to music streaming), donated to the big crowdfunding campaign to move into the new office, etc. etc. I am not opposed to paying for content, especially quality content that I enjoy and spend plenty of my time viewing. I just wish there were a better option than to give that money to Vessel and continue to use their crap platform to watch LMG content on. Sure, they have come a long way in the last year but they are still ages behind Youtube in pretty much every single way, especially when attempting to use on my phone. Removing ads for paying is a huge step. I really just wish there were I way I could pay Linus the $20 directly and get the content on-schedule. More than likely I will wait for my free year to expire and get sad when I realize I have to wait 2 whole weeks to get a new piece of content (outside of WAN show) and end up paying the $20. I won't want to, but I won't have any other choice.
  7. I can't speak for long term for the OPO as I have only had it for a bit over a month now. In terms of receiving updates it has been slow to get 5.0, but there is an Alpha build available from OnePlus (not Cyanogen). Of course, the OPO is very easy to unlock and root and install custom ROMs on, and it doesn't even void your warranty so it is likely that you will be able to keep the phone up to date for quite a while as there are already a handful of different builds including CM12. In terms of ease of keeping it up to date, and the duration of receiving those updates the iPhone would likely be the phone to go with, but if you aren't worried about getting into custom ROMs or aren't worried about getting updates ASAP then the OPO would be a good choice. As an alternative you could pick up a Moto G for $180 and a bridge device. I used one for a couple of months after my Nexus 4 broke while I waited to be able to get a OnePlus One. While the Moto G is definitely slower than the OPO it wasn't so slow that it bother me at all, and it has an amazing set of features for the price. Front facing speakers, microSD slot, solid 5" screen, acceptable battery life, and some nice little Motorola apps; easily better than the Nexus 4 in every way. You could get away with using the Moto G for 6+ months until something comes along that you really want to get as soon as it hits the market. Just throwing out some options.
  8. Tutorial Link This is the tutorial that I followed on the One Plus forum. It has all the steps needed as well as links to everything you need to download, pretty straight forward. The only additional piece of advice I would offer is to utilize the ability of "Shift + Right Click" to add a "open command window here" option to the context menu so you don't have to type something like "cd Desktop/android-sdk-windows/platform-tools" to change the directory to run the fastboot or adb executables from the command prompt.
  9. It all depends on the circumstances. The way tech and mobile tech goes you can always wait another 2-3 months and there will likely be a better phone. What phone do you have right now. Do you need a new phone today, within a couple of weeks, or can you wait 4 months? Outside of the ASUS Zenphone I'm not really sure what is coming in the next few months, tbh. What I can say from having the OPO is that I haven't found another phone on the market right now that I would prefer to have over it. For the price, it absolutely beats everything out there. I was worried it would be a bit too big but I adjust to the size within the first day. I am actually worried I might have to find a different phone as I am moving states next week and Tmobile coverage is terribly spotty where I am moving but am really really hoping AT&T coverage will be good enough so I can keep using the OPO. Worst case scenario is that I have to move to sprint at which point I really don't know what phone I would choose. For me the OPO just hits all the sweet spots that I like in a phone: very close to stock Android experience, feels great in the hand with the textured back, plenty of storage that I don't have to worry, 5.5" display is more enjoyable than expected and 1080p is good enough as I have never been crazy about stupid high PPI, which also results in better battery life. I have gone two full days of normal use without charging. Is the One Plus One still worth it to buy right now? Absolutely yes. Is it the most "future-proof", highest resolution, fastest, most RAM? Nope.
  10. I also have a phatom glass protector for my OPO and from my experience I didn't have any bubbles in the center but on each edge I could see tiny little squiggly bubbles in each of the corners for teh first day before they went away on their own. The downside is that the side of the screen literally cracked in the first hour, I just pulled it out of my pocket and it was chipped. I am planning on requesting a replacement but I since I am moving states next week I am going to wait until I get a bit settled as it works great otherwise. I am sure everything will go well as my first experience with their support went well.
  11. Invite sent to thekeemo. The ASUS Zenphone 2 looks like a pretty compelling buy. Do we know when they are coming out?
  12. I have an invite to anybody who wants one. currently have less than 3 days left on it.
  13. This happens every year leading up to award season, a bunch of studios send out a bunch of DVDs with movies to get buzz going in hopes of getting nominations and awards and somebody gets a hold of them and puts them online. It is a part of the year that I always enjoy. With online streaming becoming more and more popular, it would be interesting to see if the Academy could put together a streaming site, or go through an existing service and sell some sort of "Oscar Ticket" where you could watch all the movies that are nominated in all the different categories. It would be especially useful for finding foreign films, shorts, animated, and documentaries that are often much harder to even find in a store or online. Even if they charged something like $50 I would personally probably pay for it every year because I would go through and watch the majority of the content. Of course getting licensing agreements from all the studios would be the hardest part, I just think it would be beneficial the everybody as it could also remove the need to mail out any DVDs which would prevent those movies from leaking. Of course, somebody would then just be able to rip the video stream using software so there is that whole issue.
  14. RAM disks have been around for a while and it seems like the major set back of it being simply too expensive still holds true, especially with SSDs these days. You can buy 32GB of RAM for about $275 + $30 for software leaving you at $305 total. There are a handful of SSDs in the 500GB range available around $300, that would seem like a much smarter investment in money for general use. Especially consider the fact that a lot of games coming out these days are bigger than the 32GB would allow you to load you will still not be able to load full games into your RAM. Furthermore, if you are really going after massive speed consider getting a PCI-Express SSD. They are more expensive than SATA SSDs but if you were considering paying $300 for 32GB of storage I don't think it would be much of a stretch to pay $200 for 128GB or $380 for $256. Of course it would be interesting to see some benchmarks. Compare and SSD to PCI-E SSD to the Dimmdrive and see how much loading times actually increase.
