    LinusOnLine got a reaction from lewdicrous in Opinion: Apple isn't ripping anyone off   
    It is amazing how many people they have managed to fool in to thinking this is actually ok and even needed
     
    If they do not want to do something or charge insane amount of dollars for something that is totally ok. What is not is how they try to force everyone else to not do repairs.

    LinusOnLine reacted to mr moose in Apple Fires Back at Spotify in official press release   
    https://www.extremetech.com/mobile/276066-netflix-experiments-with-bypassing-apple-app-store-subscription-fees
     
    So it seems if you buy through the app store (either brand) you get charged extra for the privilege.  
     
    EDIT: Also I don't care which company is charging it, 30% is a lot for this case,  Apple/google are essentially only processing a transaction, they are not streaming the service,  organizing content or a part of that content distribution.   30% for an admin fee (especially one that is automated) is way too high.

    LinusOnLine reacted to mynameisjuan in LAN port speed on Expensive vs Cheap router   
    Yes and no. 
     
    Most consumer routers cannot handle a gig, most seem to cap around 400-500mbps. This is because of the firewall and CPU shitting the bed at full load. Turn off the firewall and most can suddenly hit a gig or close to it. 
     
    Shitty CPU in consumer devices just cant handle the 5-10 simple rules to keep up with a gig.

    LinusOnLine reacted to minibois in Why is AMD the Budget Option for Gamers?   
    I hate this title.
    This just feels needlessly clickbait. It's now "Is AMD for poor people?" while you could have made a much more honest and interesting title by calling the video something like "Is AMD the budget option? A look at Intel vs. AMD budget value" or something similar.
    That is a much more honest and straight to the point title.
     
    I can't wait for the next video from you guys, "is Intel for bozos that like overpaying???" /s
     
    Separate from the title, I felt the video was neat, I liked it. More PC builds, especially in these type of price ranges please!

    LinusOnLine reacted to jagdtigger in Spotify banning ad blockers   
    For many that wont matter, the damage is already done and no amount of blocking/banning going to do any good.....

    LinusOnLine reacted to jagdtigger in Spotify banning ad blockers   
    Adblockers exist because of the obnoxious ads they created. Instead of thinking they opted for even more ads which lead to the spread of said blockers. Even now they refuse to think rationally, instead they spectacularly failed again with their anti-adblock efforts.... (Just like with piracy, they are the ones who are bitching about it, even though they themselves created and escalated the problem.)
     
    /EDIT
    Oh and since malvertising is a thing adblockers become part of many ppl's "security tool-bag"...

    Your first point is a false equivalency. Having knowledge of the industry and paying for music are not mutually exclusive and one does not lead to the other.

    Then you straw man me, no where do I say that all music is garbage.


     
    False equivalency again, music’s worth is not tied to a right to listen


      Then you prove my point, since streaming started revenues are up more people are paying less and more people are on spotify’s free tier than any other premium.  Music today has little to no value. Deal with it

    LinusOnLine reacted to LogicalDrm in Whelp, I'm not buying Arctic garbage again   
    LOL. This is what I call being bs about something. You are so hard trying to keep Arctic in good light when its obviously is issue at their quality control/packaging end. Bent fin place where it is and everything else isn't something that would be left if packaging is fixed after some issue. ANYONE who takes quality seriously would check contents when switching package. The fin damage would mean that box needs to get big hit.
     
    RMA is a thing. But having to do it is enough to degrade company's trust, in my eyes at least. Also, issues from factory are a thing also. You could have used that as argument. But rather than doing that, you are making excuses and trying to find another reason. Every company makes mistakes. But their fans are usually blind to those mistakes.

    LinusOnLine reacted to UnidentifiedGold in school‘s wifi not allow use steam,how to solve?   
    Have you heard of this cool thing called a “Firewall”, schools have group policies and unless you have direct permission from IT administrator, tampering with blocked services can get you in trouble...

    LinusOnLine reacted to Peskanova in dog thread   
    My family owns a dog hotel, we never let dogs interact with eachother (We do if both dogs know, ie: family / neightbours , and they specify say to do so) .
    Like 3 months ago, a close friend called me asking advice because a relative went to a dog hotel( I said wtf you just could come here, but his relative didnt knew) and they losted the dog.... long story short, they use to walk all dogs together without leash, and they assumed that the dog would return (I think they killed the dog just letting on a field with another dogs on some fight).
    My(family) dog hotel has 4 parks with grass and trees but we made 4 not 1 because of that... We use to let the dog run free on the park(fenced) like 40min or so... 3 times per day. You can say that its easy to join male-female without any risk (of bite), but male-male, female-female it needs time and each dog is different, you cant just say my dog wont bite, it depends on the other side too  

    So for me its easy(working + dog owning) , when me and my gf have a busy week (like 2 hours of free time) I go to the dog hotel (for me its free, but its 15euros/day).
     
    Last a recent sneaky photo that my gf did yesterday.

    Best thing with doggy daycare is to put them in it as puppies. That way they learn to socialize with other dogs. Some even train your dog while they are there. Have a friend in the UK that did that to her Bedlington puppy and that dog is almost like a circus dog now  Cost can be high though.

    LinusOnLine reacted to Lurick in My TP-Link range extender doesn't detect my 5.8Ghz WI-FI   
    5.8GHz is equal to channel 161 and 165. It's part of the 5GHz band though.
     
    OP, I suspect you need to change the channel on your router and that the repeater doesn't support that channel for some reason.

    LinusOnLine reacted to Kallahan11 in What do you do....   
    You should talk to your doctor about not seeing any improvement on fluoxetine. Pills are not all the same thing, they do not all work the same way. The reality of depression is any one treatment has like a 30-50% chance of success and they generally take 4-6 weeks before anything happens. It's a matter of taking the time to find the right treatment, a psychologist is a good starting point as CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) is a good non-drug starting point.

    I'm sorry for your loss, not all anti depressants are addictive, I go on and off mine depending on if i'm coping or not. There are different types that affect people differently.
