arecheese got a reaction from dabestofdabest in Feenix Collection Giveaway
The Feenix Autore Keyboard just looks amazeballs! It doesnt look too tacky like other gaming keyboards so I can even use it as a work keyboard and won't be looked at weirdly by my co-workers. The clean minimalist design is just up my alley and the detachable cable is perfect for me to transport it to and from work without having to worry about the connection being bent in my backpack.
arecheese got a reaction from nicklmg in New Platform Launch Feedback & FAQ
I think a lot of what I want to say has been said:
1. slow loading site and videos tend to buffer slower (youtube 1080p is fine but 720p on vessel gets stuck every few seconds on the same line)
2. no specific control over video quality (Hd on or off only? really?)
3. no android or samsung smart tv app
but a lot of this is vessel's problem. I understand that LMG has to make some money some way since google is messing things up so I'll still go on vessel and run it in the background so you guys get the ad revenue then wait for it to come to youtube (double revenue for you guys yeay~) but the platform really needs to buck up. You guys are still awesome and we all appreciate you forwardness and honesty with your fans!

WAIT HOLD UP. WE DONT WANT LINUS'S PERSONAL PC. The case has a lot of meaning to him guys. It was a gift from his wife. I believe it was the first gift from her too.
EDIT: Thanks for all the likes guys! Hopefully Linus or someone from LMG will read this and this will make Linus keep his build. Even if the goal of 100k is made we should convince Linus to do another build maybe, with signatures from the whole LMG family and maybe even his wife. This would let Linus keep the build he has with the special case his wife gave him. Besides, his personal PC would be more special to him than us.

Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate it.
One thing I really want people who long for the good 'ol days to consider is this: Have I really changed, or have you changed?
The timing of this post is particularly interesting since it comes RIGHT AFTER I uploaded not one, but two motherboard videos in just a few days... What is more "classic LTT" than a motherboard overview video? Yes, it's better shot, and I have a chance to gather my thoughts BEFORE the video rather than during it (scripting), but is it POSSIBLE that you just don't need to hear about every motherboard anymore since there just isn't really that much to say about them?
The reasons you see me branching out are not due to a focus on money, but because I believe in the longer term it will be better for the audience. #1 is that I try not to say or do the same thing twice if I can avoid it. If that means that I don't unbox all three capacities of the same power supply the way that I used to, then so be it. #2 is that I let my own personal interests and projects guide the direction of the content because if I'm not actually passionate about it, you guys will clue in for sure and then this is all just pointless.
I'm sorry to those folks that aren't as interested in headphones as I am, but the content will continue to be about the things I think are interesting, not just PC tech.
Also some of the complaints here seem to be pure bandwagoning... The folks that are saying that *I* have sold out to ASUS because *Logan* made however many ASUS videos with JJ... Are you for real? CES coverage aside, I've made 5 ASUS product videos this calendar year. FIVE. If anything you guys should be hounding me about not adequately covering them given what a MASSIVE player they are in the PC space...
And frankly many of the other criticisms are like that... Calling what we do a commercial compared to the older-style unboxings is laughable. GO WATCH THE OLD STUFF. I'M LITERALLY READING THE BOX ON CAMERA. I have no prior experience with the product. It is PURE commercial. Now go watch one of our recent reviews (bear in mind not everything we do is something I'd consider a review) like this one:
Not a commercial. Contains many comparisons to other products. Ends with a recommendation against the product in the video.
As for us not going to Computex, quite frankly it's the viewer-base that spoke on this one. Last time I checked our Computex coverage last year got 1/2 as many views as our CES coverage, and cost our sponsors well over twice as much. You guys didn't care, so we aren't going this year.

Computex 2013 coverage: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8mG-RkN2uTyJKThbEAxoGGi8uXxNqnbb
edit: one more thing. Don't take the fact that I'm presenting my arguments here as a dismissal or to mean that I don't care about the viewpoints of my viewers. I truly do. If I didn't care, I would just be like every other YouTuber and ignore your message. I want our videos to make every one of our viewers happy. It's just not always possible
