The nuts who claim that online time is bad are the same people who watch gameshows 8 hours a day. I find the stimulation of online activity and gaming to be immensely more enjoyable than sitting still and watching a screen.

That's not to say you should do nothing but browse and game, as academics and physical health are important, but this lynch mob needs to stop.

I think this is about kids that are addicted to their phone, rather than the internet OP. Why so mad?

All i need in a phone is to be able to call people. maybe sometimes texting. so a nokia 3310 is like nasa to me

While what you say is true (I can attest to what you're saying because I've noticed it myself), it goes both ways.

 

My brother who turned 20 recently has his life revolving around the internet. This isn't a "work and play" life, this is nothing but playing and shit talking people on the internet. He's been like this ever since I was forced to share my Xbox 360 with him when I got Xbox Live and Modern Warfare 2. His attitude got worse as time went on and now he has absolutely no respect for me or my parents.

 

No, the internet didn't do this to him, he did it to himself, and that's what the article is talking about. It's not specifically saying the internet or online interaction is a bad thing, it's saying take it in moderation because it can get to the point where it's unhealthy.

 

Back to my brother, he's 20, doesn't have his driver's license, hasn't gotten any education post-public school (online courses, college, what have you). He just wake up every now and then to eat and play League of Legends.

 

He's not even good at it.

 

 

 

The difference between him and my parents who do nothing but watch Fox News and play on their phones and tablets when they're home from work is that my parents have jobs and pay the bills. My brother just sits around doing jack shit.

Completely agree, people who claim to have *no life* without the internet are the ones who need help. and that actually get angry over losing internet, they are also the same people that get physically violent over it. like honestly. have you guys heard of the New game? It's called outside you fat fucks, and if you get the dlc pack it comes with a soccer ball. it always saddens me when i walk past the local park to see everyone staring at their phones. but a little bit of technology is fine, i know we all incorporate it some way in our lives. but being on that shit all day is a bit much.

Did your brother drop out of highschool or something? Is he taking a gap year before college? I honestly don't understand why your parents would enable him to do that, doing nothing but gaming for years without working out, learning, etc. makes you a complete potato.

I know few who actually check their email and are addicted. My dad checks his email maybe 30 or 40 times per day, but that's because he has a job and the responsibilities that come with that.

Don't let this trigger you, but If I were your parents, I'd kick his ass and tell him to go get a job and a life. He seems respectless.

He's the baby of the family, so he got his way. They swear he has a learning disability, but I'm not buying that bullshit because he's just a lazy person and my parents allowed him to get like that. He wouldn't do his work in class when he did go to public school, so they let him drop out and do homeschooling. They spent all of this money on him and he doesn't even do his work. He just eats all of the food and then bitches at my mom for the most absurd things. I got in his face one time a few years ago because it got so bad and told him that our parents are working their asses off while he's here doing jack shit to help out. Didn't help any because he started crying and I got in trouble for it.

 

But yes, he's a potato. I told my mom recently that if they don't do something about it, he's going to end up being a man child and not know what to do once my parents are gone.

Linus won't teach you anything about math, or make you smarter. If you're smart enough to be able to go through school with little effort, then fair enough, but if you ever have to choose between entertainment and failing a year, trust me, don't fail the year. Realistically speaking, what you learn on the internet by itself is unlikely to ever give you a good paying job if any at all.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
