  1. Thank you, finally someone who gets it. It's honestly disappointing to see all the people blaming it on the yOuTuBe AlgOriThM to defend the practice. It has nothing to do with the algorithm. I personally know people who were actually affected by the algorithm, which turned off commenting on their videos, drastically reducing their audience, and they're no longer able to make enough off YouTube for a living, actually having to change their career path and only doing YouTube as a hobby for their remaining fans and small Patreon supporter group. THAT'S being affected by the algorithm.
  2. While I do understand this, a lot of other large content creators on YouTube (including in tech) do as well, and they still haven't felt the need to resort to clickbait titles and thumbnails. Yes there's overhead and revenue, but there's still having respect for your audience and viewers. As with everything there should be a line between ethics and profit, even if it swings a lot more towards the latter, rather than just being greedy as possible.
  3. Though I haven't been on the forum much if at all the past few years, I still continued to keep up with the main channel and videos that I thought were interesting. The video titles and thumbnails started to contain catchy taglines, but still clearly explained what the product is and the video was about (ex. "I'm DONE covering for NVIDIA - RTX 3070 Review"). However, as of the past few months, there were more and more videos with absolutely nothing in the title or description that explains what it is about, and more and more often they are just downright clickbait. Who came up with
  4. What's the background of your question? Do you already have a board and everything for it laying around, or are you starting from scratch?
  5. If any of these services did. At least ones that are free.
  6. You SHOULD get a board with VRM heatsinks, but you don't necessarily NEED one in all cases. With a 3100 you'll be just fine.
  7. Given that they're the same speed & latency, 2x16. Ryzen is only dual channel, so you'd just be limiting yourself for future upgrades.
  8. Actually just got one the other week for the miss to do her photo and video editing on. It's a great laptop for if you need the power and is light for a gaming laptop, but if you don't, it's pretty hefty to lug around all that extra weight you won't take advantage of. The charging brick is impressively small though.
  9. Stock recoveries won't allow access to internal storage, only aftermarket ones like TWRP will and I believe it's the only one that will connect to MTP automatically without confirmation. There was only a certain period of Android devices where they would automatically enable storage access upon connecting to a PC, when they first switched from USB mass storage to MTP. However, due to security risks of this with public USB outlets at airports and whatnot, this quickly became frowned upon and now pretty much all devices require user confirmation in order to enable phone storage to be
  10. Will they actually show what it looks like is the big question
  11. Somehow they still managed to see a need to produce a 240W PSU But hey, it's got RGB!
  12. You could also go to the junkyard, get a car battery, and toss a wrench across the terminals
  13. Possibly as the latter models were developed later on. Intel's chip lineup is just so unnecessarily fragmented and over the top right now that it's like buying a sedan from General Motors in the mid 2000s, ridiculous. They need to slim the roster.
  14. Thunderbolt 3 is the important part that you're looking for, so at the moment you'll need something Intel. If you're not doing anything graphically demanding and just research/writing work though, you shouldn't need discrete graphics. Pretty much any Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptop will have a good enough iGPU to do high-res for just productivity.
  15. Unfortunately you need an NTFS partition to install Windows on. You could do what others above have suggested of shrinking the partition and creating an NTFS one in the empty space, but honestly that's just as much time and effort as you could be spending just backing up the files to somewhere and doing a fresh install on a clean drive. It's much less cluttered that way and less likely to run into weird issues or poor performance afterwards.
