    Niksa got a reaction from jake9000 in PewDiePie Exposes T-Series for selling Pirated Bollywood Songs when they started.   
    After all Crunchyroll started as a pirate anime site and it is now a leading legal anime provider. So what if they started as pirates?
    Also, the Youtuber which starts with p is IMHO only relevant for his fan base and no one else.

    Niksa got a reaction from Alexandru Costache in BIAS FX vs BIAS FX 2 - is the new version better? And which other similar programs are you using and why?   
    I would go with version 2 just because of the added rack gear emulations like Dyno-my-piano chorus etc. and guitar matching (playing with whatever and sound like you are using Gibson, Fender etc.).
    Personally I am using Fortin Nameless and Waves PRS pack. They are not feature rich as BIAS-FX, but they sound killer.

    In Japan you can order stuff from Amazon to the convenience store instead to your home address and even pay for the package upon delivery in there. And you are able to that for years now. Also, no extra charge for those services.

    Niksa got a reaction from Bensemus in The Dark Side of NetSec - Researcher Assaulted after Disclosing Vulnerabilities   
    I know a similar story about one guy who managed to find a serious vulnerability of the web banking site of his bank at the time just by accident. By just editing URL he managed to see other people's transactions without knowing to whom those accounts belong. Being a nice guy he sent a mail to the bank with the description of the issue just to receive a month later legal threat from the bank's legal team that, paraphrasing, "it is not vulnerability on it's own because no one discovered it before. So, since he discovered it, he made that vulnerability a real vulnerability so he should fix it". What I know is that he just replied them with some links about web security and definition of the word "vulnerability" and that on the following day he closed his banking account at that bank.

    When i first subbed to the channel several years ago i watched literally every video he posted but something changed when he got bigger, now its all about the bold/colorful words, Linus pulling a stupid face and some type of click bait type title, i probably watch 20% of the content now  
     
    I get that he has people relying on him now and with the way YouTube crap works he pretty much has to pull all that shit to stay ahead of the game but it's a huge turn off for me.

    Niksa got a reaction from Tarun10 in is my new new Microphone a good one or....?   
    None of those devices are amps. They don't amplify anything. All of them are audio interfaces. You connect passive output devices to amps like headphones and speakers. 
    Back to the topic, from 3 which you listed I would go with Steinberg (Yamaha). They are known to have decent hardware and they also produce industry standard DAW software.
    All of them have DACs inside. Basically DAC is electronic circuit which translates zeroes and ones which come from your PC in this case via USB to the analog signal which can be later amplified and sent to speakers or headphones. Basically, all PCs have DACs inside and the connector where you connect your speakers or headphones is a DAC output (analog signal).
     
    There is no audio interface in the world which will do noise canceling. There are some software solutions, but I can't guarantee for any of those. Also, for that application you are looking completely wrong type of microphone. You should stay away from large diaphragm condensers (Yeti, AT2020, AT2035, even super expensive Neumann U87 would be a bad choice in a noisy situation) and go with dynamic microphones. Shure SM58 is a standard and it is not that expensive, but for the best results I would go with Shure SM7B or Electro Voice RE20. Rode Procaster is also a nice choice.

    Niksa got a reaction from KnightSirius in USB or XLR   
    Not necessarily. XLR is a standard for connecting microphones to the mixer, soundboard etc. It has nothing to do with quality. Also XLR microphones are much more flexible than USB. Quality wise eg AT2020 is THE SAME regardless the connector. The only difference is that USB version has internal microphone preamp and ADC. Cheap microphones will not benefit that much from higher end preamps and there will be little to none improvement for just streaming purposes especially without having adequately acoustically treated room (read studio). 
     
    Second thing, Scarlet 2i2 HAS phantom power and the author DOESN'T need it because he wants to use DYNAMIC microphone.
     
    Finally person who did a homework regarding microphones 
    I would only recommend to look at SM58 instead as well. It has the same capsule as SM57 and it is more optimized for vocals (and indestructible). SM57 is also a nice choice nonetheless, so I think that setup wise you are good to go with either of them. Some people may suggest windscreen, but it will mostly get in a way with SM57/58 without adding much benefit.

    Niksa got a reaction from Sabir in Yamaha HS5 or JBL 305P MkII ?   
    Not necessarily. You can use onboard sound card, but studio monitors should be used with something that has balanced outputs for the best results.
     
    Also, studio monitors have really flat response which may not be the best for gaming.

    Niksa got a reaction from JabroniBaloney in Trying to get rid of mechanical keyboard sounds from my mic   
    What you have there is large diaphragm condenser microphone.  And I will have to repeat myself for millionth time:
    - those types of microphones WILL pickup clicks from mechanical keyboard. O rings will help a little to none. There is no way to completely isolate keyboard noise, you can just make it a slightly less annoying. They are just way too sensitive.
    - get a noise gate (software one is ok). Think of it as a automatic mute button which will engage if the sound input is below the certain level. It will help to eliminate any noises while you are being silent, but will NOT eliminate surrounding noises while speaking.

    Niksa reacted to huilun02 in Japan cyber security minister admits he has never used a computer   
    This is an example of the situation in many Japanese organisations. Their leadership being full of old Japanese men often too uptight to let go of their old ways and being overprotective of their existing mode of business. The structure being strictly heirarchical with younger members at the bottom having no power to question their superiors or initiate change.
     
    This is why we have companies like Konami and Nintendo behaving in a ways that are hostile or out of touch with their audience. Japanese companies led by old men and struggling to do much more than making the same thing over and over again.

    i'd argue that facebook conducting psychological experiments on users without their knowledge (source) is a lot worse than apple making devices difficult to repair.

    It's news when it happens to Apple. Not even two weeks ago an S7 exploded, we did get no news. It can happen to every manufacturer, one isolated case is really not news worthy. The bomb note 7 and Apple bandgate were news. This is aimed at media.

    I like how we've turn the word racism from something that requires hate and abuse, to just being biased against in dating. Since when can we not date who we are attracted to, and if we are more attracted to one race over the other why is that racism?
