    Generally speaking, as long as you stick to the following core principles you should not find yourself subject to disciplinary action:
    Ensure a friendly atmosphere to our visitors and forum members. Encourage the freedom of expression and exchange of information in a mature and responsible manner. "Don't be a dick" - Wil Wheaton. "Be excellent to each other" - Bill and Ted. Remember your audience; both present and future.  
    The following is not an exhaustive list of the rules and guidelines that must be followed when participating on Linus Tech Tips. The moderation team reserve the right to terminate any and all accounts or remove any content at any stage without prior notice. The rules outlined below are only the minimum expectations of members and not every issue can be predicted and addressed here, so conduct could still be considered out of line even if it isn't explicitly covered here. The instructions of the moderation team must be followed at all times.
     
    No harassment, discrimination or abuse of any kind. This includes insults and accusations (fanboy, troll, shill etc). No pornography, sexually explicit or illegal content. No thread dumping (posting a thread in the wrong section). Check the forum for the most appropriate location for your thread before posting. No spam LMGTFY (Let Me Google That For You) links or comments in the same spirit. Post count / reputation farming. 'Ask Me Anything’ threads. Shortened links (bit.ly etc) without the permission of staff. No trolling or flame-bait. This includes topics such as AMD vs NVIDIA, "company X sucks", and religious debates No political content, regardless of your views. If something spans politics and tech, the discussion must remain clearly within tech and must not descend into politics This covers all parts of the site, including status updates No advertising of any non LTT/LMG material. eBay/trading sites, personal websites or businesses except where appropriate. (e.g. "Who can do data recovery in Vancouver?", "Anyone know where I can get this part?"). No affiliate links unless created by Linus Media Group. Note that the LMG affiliate code will be automatically added to Amazon links. Twitch/Youtube links are only allowed in your own status updates; posting them on other users' profiles or updates is not allowed. No begging for free or discounted things, asking for donations, GoFundMes, or any similar content.

    Whiskers reacted to LAwLz in One More One More Thing - Apple Unveils AirPods Max   
    550 dollars for a pair of headphones are not unheard of, and Apple makes so good audio products already. I wouldn't be surprised if they have really good audio quality.
    I wouldn't want to pay 550 dollars for these headphones though.
     
    They are ugly as balls.
    The case you get with them seems really bad. It barely protects the headphones at all. I would much rather have the case from the Sony XM3 or Bose CQ 35 II. Those cases protects the entire headphones. This case only protects the earcups and leaves the (probably) fragile headband completely exposed.
    Are they completely wireless, with no option to plug them in? I like the option of using a wire. Also, why do they use the lighting port? That sucks ass.

    WKD is correct. All you calculated was the percentage of the whole US population that has already died to COVID, at apparently 0.08% (I haven't done the math, so I trust you on this one). This is different from the mortality rate of COVID, which is the number of people who died from COVID divided by the number of people who got COVID.
     
    The first number is definitely a valid data point to look at, but it doesn't really tell you anything meaningful about the virus beyond the wake it's left so far. The second one tells you approximately the chance that you'll die if you contract the virus. That's why wkd says you are misusing the numbers, because the calculation you did does not imply what you says it does (that the virus is less harmful than the media makes it out to be). It's already killed between 5 and 20 times the people the flu normally kills per year in the US, and the virus hasn't even been spreading in the community for a year, nevertheless ignoring the potential long-term side effects that COVID has had on people that the flu does not. 
     
    Think of it in the extreme situation, let's say there's a virus with 100% mortality rate, but only 10 people have gotten it, and only 5 of those people have died so far. What ratio seems the most relevant? That it's killed 5 in ~300M, or that it's killed 5 in 10 people? Obviously the 5 in 10 people statistic, because the other 300M odd people are out-of-band and contribute nothing to any meaningful analysis. 
     
    And let's be clear, there's no conspiracy about the media trying to scare you. Every day nearly a 9/11 worth of deaths occurs in America due to the virus, and American is handling it nearly the worst out of any country in the world. The US gets more cases daily than China has had in total. The US has over 21% of the entire worlds COVID cases despite not even having 5% of the world population.

    Please keep in mind this thread's rules (and indeed those of the Community Standards), and try to avoid political discussions and arguments as much as possible. Whilst President Trump's diagnosis is relevant to this topic, discussion on his politics and those of his supporters is not.
