Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Just do a whole bit on LAG in general.  Different types and how to avoid them.  Types of connections to the web.  Wireless or cabled mice.  Refresh rates and response times on monitors.  Types of switches in keyboards that reduce input lag, if that even matters.  If frame rate limiting games helps.  How to determine if you or the server you are connected to is the cause of lag on the web.

 

Hard core gamers or wanna be hard core gamers would love this.

Maybe one about the buffer effect of aio coolers.  For example, if all you do is basic web browsing and office work, you can keep the fans way down.  It takes so much heat to get the water temp to climb that the fans won't ever have to ramp up and down to keep up.  Keeps the dust out of your computer and the noise down.  If you are a hard core gamer, you will get amazing temps, but then as time goes on and heat builds, then you end up with decent temps still, but the fans have to ramp up to keep the temps down just like an air cooler, effectively gaining you..not much over an air cooler.  Then after you stop gaming it takes a while to get the water temperature back down because it takes quite a bit to pull all that heat back out of water.

 

Also WHY in the world do the fans on an AIO cooler ramp up based on CPU temp instead of Water temp, that is so annoying and pointless unless you are running it hard for a long time, it's stupid.

Just watched TQ - file formats, want to repeat my comment from YT,

 

Quote

Jon does a really good job here of explaining a lot of technical data to the viewer, dare I say that Linus or Luke might of been the incorrect choice of host for this one?

Yes to more in this series, Audio, Video, documents, gaming etc

 

And maybe even something about dead pixels, most noticeable as Jon's right nipple at 4:16 when you switch to negative.

Can you explain frame pacing and how it contributes to smoothness in games. This could also be tied into an ltt channel video where you compare old/new intel processes and ryzen with their frame pacing.

1- The history of USB or data connections in general. You could throw in firewire and even go over some of the strange serial connections on older machinery! Also, the history of video inputs could be neat 

 

2- I don't know how you would title this, but I would love a video about Women in tech/Women in gaming. It would be neat to have a video talking about why the culture against women online exists (or the absolute sexual creepiness). I think it is fascinating how women in tech can enrage so many members of the community! . Shoot, look at the comments about Max!

 I imagine the comments section would be very angry... No matter what you would get comments about #feminazis but, It is important to make a statement of "don't be a jerk to people on the internet."  We are building a community here! 

 

3- I would love videos talking about careers in tech! The philosophy of service for IT staff, how a non-LMG film crew works, or just what it is like to work in software/hardware.

 

4-  I would love a video about variation within device manufacturing (or device failure rates). I work in IT so I have 100 laptops that are exactly the same and out of the box they have substantially different speed, screen clarity and performance. I imagine higher end products have less variation but it would be a neat video!

"Misused Technology Terms"

 

How about

  • "Quantum Leap"
  • "Headphones" vs. "Headset" (also "in-ear" vs. "earphones")
  • "Authentication" vs. "Authorisation"
  • "Window" (Frame) vs. "Application" vs. "OS" vs. "PC" X "Crash" vs. "Freeze" vs. "Error message" vs. "Incorrect behaviour"
    • People talk/write about every possible permutation while they actually may mean any other possible permutation

I appreciate your suggestions.

 

However, I'd like to quickly speak on this as I've had this suggestion pop up more than once.

 

As long as I'm running Techquickie, we're not going to touch anything like this.

 

You're asking us to advocate for one side of a complicated sociopolitical issue people have very strong feelings about in both directions.

 

The few times we've covered anything that could be taken as remotely related to politics, we've taken great pains to be as even-handed as possible - see, for example, our video on net neutrality.

 

The closest we've come to something like this is our episode on cyberbullying, which we were extremely careful to present in a factual, data-driven manner, instead of coming across as lecturing our viewers about how to treat people online.

 

It was difficult enough coming up with a way to cover the GENERAL phenomenon of people being horrible to each other irrespective of race, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, etc etc while keeping things neutral and evidence-based. Advocating for a specific group, by contrast, is even more difficult to the point where I consider it an absolute minefield.

 

I have my own personal feelings on this matter, but other than saying I don't condone harassment of anyone online (or off), I'm not sharing them and in this case they're irrelevant anyway as taking sides on issues like this is, in my view, a bad idea for most YouTubers, especially those who don't comment on or poke fun at larger societal issues as part of the core of who they are.

 

Regarding the last bit of your quote, if someone actually needs to be told not to be a jerk on the Internet, a video from us isn't going to convince them.

 

Thanks to all who have suggested topics. Keep them coming, I do read them and I've seen some good ones.

This would be better suited for LTT, but "Whole House RGB". Christmas lights, interior lights, pc lights, anything and everything that could possibly be linked together to RGB a whole house.

PSU Sizes, and why we're still using standard ATX sized PSUs after so long.(i know there are smaller sizes becoming more mainstream right now, would love to know how they make the stuff smaller, and why it took them so long to start making smaller PSUs for customers)

maybe an episode/couple of episodes talking about the "smallization" of tech in general, from CPU dies to Motheboard form factors(is smallization a word? i dont think so)

 

EDIT: also, debunking/confirming the myth of driver installation order making a difference would be nice
