  1. In the other day i actually made a stupid post regarding laptops and how they are ending nowhere. I'm happy to see laptop makers inovating since it's been long overdue since the normal form factor is older than me.. I actually liked the video, linus script was well written (despite the obvious apple-youtube-gime-views) and the inclusion of Taran and his words was great and made me rethink some things.. This laptop seems really great to have it around for gaming, productivity or just multitask-procrastination (i'm coining this sentence right here). Did laptops manufacturers arrived on time? I think that depends on what services popup and how existing ones and new ones evolve. The way mobile phones or better saying, mobile phones hardware evolves might open doors to new ways to interact and i do not think we are far. But damn, thats a nice looking pc. Mmm..
  2. I HAD THIS THICK TEXT AND EFFFFF IT. GODAMIT. just pasting a LTT youtube link breaks all and even erases text. bullet points it is: > less and less people using laptops (living in major city in central europe; except apple laptops, its hard to buy one) > makers are dumping laptops and they don't even have enough marketplace to sell > everyone underestimated the work you can do in a mobile phone > Stuff like Stadia or even PS4 Remote Play are changing how you perceive handheld devices. > makers do less and less laptops > Can't wait to hook my mobile phone to a screen and etc and be just one "desk-top" PUN [android already do that; resurgence of ipads and stuff because they already have a screen????!!!!) > PORTABLE LIGHTWEIGHT SCREENS > The group of people that move around with a laptop is decreasing; except programmers buying thinkpads. AS i see it, laptops are dead, either for basic use or even gaming (when we talk in about the general use). What we should push is really is Super SoCs. PS: i'm sorry for this badly made post but was trying to post a video from LTT and all i got was hell. I give up.

    LTX virus eh

    Wendell from Level1Techs and Steve from GameNexus both sick after LTX, coincidence?!! TATATATUMMM.. Probably, just thought it was funny to point out. Will probably try next year to fly from europe to get the same virus, stonks! Quickedit: meet&greet to avoid :£
  4. Well, when i was doing a javascript and ionic course i had this one colleague that brought along is windows pc (while we used local imacs) and had many problems installing and running packages on homebrew and some node stuff just because it was windows while worked perfectly on mac. And is was pain in the butt when trying to troubleshooting, google kungfu, etc, Never thought of it but makes sense. I used to own a Windows XP sp2 PC, then went on with macbook pro, imac, iphones.. And i just love it, all mac experience (except thermal throttling ofc, fuck that), i love it. All of the points Linus talks in this video are spot on; and that said, i do love watching LTT and all of his content (and wish to build a hackintosh soon + buying macbook pro and bootcamp and living in both worlds) but i can't shake the feeling that talking about Apple without a firm stance on neutrality like MKBHD will bite LTT in the butt as the like/dislike ratio shows on this video. Maybe they have a plan on how to talk about Apple? Go or leave it? Because, September coming..
  5. 2 days ago TechLinked: "HA! No One's Buying iPhones!" didnt take long.. Any LTT video does contain helpfull info, but there are so many cases where they spread false information like the "save image". And in the end all i'm saying, LTT is aggressive toward a minority (damn who would thought) and helping a monopoly. IOs has its problems, android has its problems, macOS has its problems, windows has its problems... BUT AS A TECH YOUTUBE CHANNEL, the ratio doesn't quite fit, and because the percentage of windows users is bigger i do understand they go for a 'VS' video. But in the end they are not helping anyone. Even the Linux videos are full of "ehhh you can, but". LTT is now becoming a survival youtube channel and it's noticeable. Specially when talking about apple. When apple isn't TECH BIGGEST PROBLEM.. ffs Tech savvy users? No, i don't think so.
  6. Let gets start with windows/linux/macOS and android/windows/ios statistics: google them. You read it all? Good. Now, do you want a full market Android? Do you want a full market Windows? I feel we are digressing.. Joke on meta, channel super fun, or whatever, but you guys are taking too far the anti apple sentiment. Windows phone are dead, diss on apple and you are left with.. and you try to please anti-apple 'sheeps'? Look at the damn statistics. ffs
  7. And here i was, me, thinking, making my second post in this forum, asking for LTT to slow down or stop talking about apple (because, look at comment sections across social). Valid points and i think (living in the other side of the atlantic so i don't know) that are a lot of things apple could change in terms of pricing politics, but that can be said also about the rest of tech companies. But this part is plain wrong "goods or services are readily obtainable in a similar transaction by like consumers". Story time. Young me loves PCs, young me goes Athlon Xp 3200. Loves is first build. Loves XP. Young me not young anymore. The ready and avaible is a messy place. Because of the GIGANTIC DIFRENCES in offers from CPU vendors like intel or amd, GPU, Cases, RAM, etc etc, all stores have major percentage on their built rigs. And this is where the problem lies and many people seem to not think about. You go to a Apple store and you have that, period. People often tend to criticize apple about RAM or Storage pricing models, but that's where they also earn their bucks. Besides that, nothing much changes. So you want a PC but you don't know what is capable or what not; AND i'm not talking about ilterates, i'm talking about common folks that likes tech but don't want to spend weeks searching every store, every build they have, every comparison and every benchmark there is on internet and just want a pc that works, good, and has a terminal. Where do you go? Like the video said, R&D and store locations take a lot of money, side And LTT didn't even talk about custom hardware, something Microsoft avoids touching afraid of losing PC market (to linux?). We could go on forever, but i guess, as a tech enthusiast, just leave apple alone so we can maybe avoid all the hate for hate stuff? I mean, i'm writing this in a iMac pro from 2015 and been searching for parts for my first waterbuild ever, but everytime LTT does stuff like this, i just bookmark all tabs and come back later (because i really like LTT!!!!!) PS: You don't know what DDR4 they use, and MAC ram availability is not that sure in canada i believe (besides craiglist?) Edit: I'm guessing i won't receive many replies since the logic of this post is straight human and based on social experience. Going off. To a third post!
