    SenKa got a reaction from ItzCopiouz in Dear LTT, please stop hating Apple   
    Where are people even getting that linus or anyone at LMG specifically hates apple???
     
    Linus' daily earbuds are airpods pro Linus' daily smartwatch is an AWS5 Alex was INCREDIBLY close to swapping his daily to a Macbook Air, and Linus didnt almost strictly because of the butterfly switch. Atleast 2 of their editors are macOS users, though i dont recall who by name. I also recall quite a few iOS users. LMG has at minimum 2 Mac Mini's deployed at their office  
    The only truly critical reviews of Apple devices i can recall in the recent past are... the 6 core MBP 15" (justified), and uhh... thats actually about it. That and i guess some people can take the iPad Pro 2019 and 2020 videos as critical? I dont, they critique apples utterly confusing stance on what the iPad Pro is, make a couple "whats a computer?" memes, and end off saying android tablets still suck.
     
    EVERY flagship android smartphone video since the 11 Pro/Pro Max's launch has drawn a comparison to it and many have fallen short per LMG's own admission. If you scroll down through the new video feed to your right on the forum, the latest SC video is titled "Why cant anyone compete with apple?" You're really, REALLY grasping at straws here by making some claim that LTT is presenting any sort of bias against or for apple...
     
    EDIT: I have used macOS and Windows interchangeably throughout my life, starting with OSX 10.1 and Windows XP and up to macOS Catalina and Windows 10. They both do what they are good at VERY well and anybody who says they hate one with 0 objectivity are genuinely part of the problem.
     
    You can dislike macOS, iOS, Windows, Android, whatever it is; you can dislike the company because their morals dont line up with yours, you can dislike the products because you have experience with them and its missing this or that feature, or whatever. Some people hate iOS with a vehement passion because of apps snapping to a grid so you cant have empty space. Thats totally valid. What ISNT is never laying hands on a product in your life and saying you hate it. I cant go around saying "Windows phone was the worst thing ever!". Why? Because ive never used one in my life.
     
    For your sake, and everybody elses, speak to what you know people. Having an opinion on something you have 0 experience with is incredibly short sighted and just undermines your own point.

    The apple pencil is STILL hailed as the best of its breed, so taking notes hand written for things such as law or math classes where there are lots of special symbols and notations will be a treat in tablet mode, and for that 8AM lit class you got fucked taking the keyboard (which i pray is the same magic keyboard on the new air/16" pro) should prove great for writing that research paper due to the much improved maturity of Office 365 on iOS and multi-app support

    Uhh, most toxic...
     
    Probably some kid in For Honor using an open mic (keep in mind, on my team). Claimed he was rich and one of the best players in the game, and that i was trash, getting carried, ect... Then out of nowhere pulled out a race card and said "you're probably a n**** the way you play". Im mixed, and told him that. He responded with "I hate n***" and continued calling me that word and telling me how much he hated them. Just kept my cool and replied to him in text chat whenever i could without affecting my team.
     
    He was playing like trash as well... think he managed to go 1-10 or something stupid. The mode i was playing has games that normally last under 10 minutes and has a 20-ish second respawn delay. You can do the math as to how incompetent he was. I played a flawless game, and ended up with the best score on my team 😛

    SenKa got a reaction from GNU/Linus in Apple screwed this up... - iPad Pro 2020 Review   
    ?? The only feature im aware of that isnt in macOS that is present is window snapping, which is a necessity... They added features on top of *iOS* to make iPadOS
     
    This isnt special to iPad OS whatsoever,  even within apples ecosystem.
     
    iPad OS is not a desktop operating system whatsoever, stop calling it one and stop comparing it to one.
     
    Contradicts the point above. You started that it is more feature rich and advanced than macOS, but there are things you cant do on an iPad that you can on macOS???
    Also, what features are you missing out on that arent requisite of a tablet (rear facing cameras)? Actually curious
     
    I am a very heavy macOS user myself, and do just about everything i could imagine doing on the go with my 2014 air. I would LOVE to know what im supposedly missing out on. But in no particular order iPad OS is missing-
    Something similar to 2 finger swipe on macOS where i can cycle between full screen windows Proper handling of background app management, on apples mobile devices it will simply shut down an app in the background if you are near RAM capacity. This is especially annoying with youtube where you will just lose whatever video you were on. Remote Desktop Those are just three random features i cannot live without on my main device, which is why my main device is not an iPad. Though, there are others that are honestly unrealistic such as wired internet support that I would kill for but know will not happen.

    i think people just dont like when you criticize the brand that they like or have been with for a while, in the apple reviews where he doesnt recommend the product they question why he hates apple, and in his recent s20 plus review they called him an apple fan boy since he didnt recommend the Samsung product, 
    and he has daily driven apple, samsung, even a windows phone, so its not like he is extremely biased, there are people that just like to project a bias

    Who the fuck cares? Honestly, why do you get so emotional when someone doesn't like the same things that you do?
    If they have certain opinions towards a company's products, why do you have to cry about how their opinion is "wrong" just cause you don't feel the same?
    If you like videos of people fixing stuff without the constant rant, then I suggest 'Adamant IT' and 'FFcossag'
    Cherry picking at its finest; they can be on their knees praising Apple for the duration of the video, but they'll still get bombarded with "you hate Apple" if they mention anything that's wrong with the product.
     
    The funny thing is, people call them Apple shills when they critique Android and Android shills when they critique Apple.
    These fuckers will never be satisfied, they feel as if they're personally getting attacked when someone says something "bad" about a product that they like.

    SenKa reacted to Arrogath in RTX 2080 thermal throttling or not   
    just the way the boost algorithm is set up. It doesn't throttle in the traditional sense, it operates by increasing the frequency and voltage according to its curve until it hits either the power limit or the temperature "limit", as the card warms up and cools down the clocks change dynamically, and you don't have an overheating issue if your boost clocks are still high

    Hard to unlearn years of Intel hard thermal throttling experiences I know

    SenKa got a reaction from Curufinwe_wins in Apple launches the iPhone SE "2"   
    The limitation with Apple is largely RAM on older phones. This is moreso an issue with iPadOS where the 1GB of RAM the early 64 bit iPads shipped with simply wouldnt have been enough. Though, the 3GB on the 6s still more than suffices on normal iOS and I agree that cutting support is 100% artificial. Same goes for cutting support for the 2014 Macbook Air after catalina, when the 2015-2017 model is THE SAME LAPTOP.
     
    Still salty about it, as I own a 2014 air myself.
