  1. There’s no main thread discussing the ethical implications of LMG doing this. Please put this back.
  2. So Linus just disclosed that he invested $225,000.00 in Framework. He then goes on to say if all goes well, you can sell these private shares once they go public "for way more than you paid" (He's talking millions upon millions if they blow up). He then goes on to discuss whether or not he will recuse himself from journalistic laptop content, since there are obvious ethical conflict of interest issues. One would assume that he would follow that up with an obvious "In light of this, LMG will cease reviewing notebooks since I have a significant financial interest in a com
  3. What? That’s literally how it works. Plug in the iPhone and browse the DCIM folder in explorer. Or you can mass import with the Windows photo app. Whoever you’re talking to has no idea what they’re talking about.
  4. Yes, what a fool to skip out on the daily memorization of every other CEO in existence. The audacity!
  5. None of their market shares come remotely close to being monopolistic.
  6. What use do you have for the Quadro? I hope it's not creative work because that display is really, really bad. Almost offensive that it doesn't even cover sRGB for $3,000. It's likely targeted at scientific workloads or stuff like CAD, otherwise it would have a passable display.
  7. It's where crash dumps go. If you ever have issues, you'll never be able to diagnose anything with it disabled. Also if you have a random memory leak in a game or wherever else, your entire system will hard crash without it. Why do you want to disable it?
  8. You're not reading what I said. You're literally agreeing with me. "In some way", which obviously, means in one of many different ways. You're not an LMG employee, you're an unpaid forum moderator. You're just as much on the outside as the rest of us. This is factually incorrect. FTC regulations are freely available online to read. You should check them out for yourself because it seems like you're misinformed on the subject. Do you think ads/informercials/paid product showcases presented as journalistic content on television put "THIS IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT" on
  9. I missed that he said "sent over", but even then, it's highly questionable with zero disclosure in the description. Why should they they be transparent about doing paid advertisements? Are you really arguing that?
  10. Linus took free stuff from Ruckus and didn't disclose it whatsoever until waaaaay into video. Not in the title, not in the description, not disclosed at the beginning of the video... That video is actually particularly egregious in how blatantly they're deceiving the audience. They're not even following YouTube policy at this point, let alone actual law. I missed the part where he said "sent over". Still though...
  11. I totally agree. You know how YouTube shows "Ad" in the corner of ad videos on the thumbnail and overlaid on the video itself? That's because they're required to by law. If LMG was following the same regulations that YouTube has to follow, they would put the term "Ad" or "Advertisement" in the video title or thumbnail. In addition I think they should be forced to put the "PAID ADVERTISEMENT" text permanently in the video as well, just like TV ads have to do if the ad is presented as journalistic content.
  12. They should just follow consumer regulation and follow FTC law. For example, these "showcase" videos should plainly display "PAID ADVERTISEMENT" along the bottom or top of the video just like they do on television. They need to stop gaming loopholes because they're unregulated on YouTube if they want to continue virtue signaling for "the consumer" in their videos when they whine about other companies.
  13. I went back and forth with a lot more information in this thread: Explains the situation a lot better, I just don’t have the energy right now to retype an essay in this thread, lol. You’re going to have issues on this forum getting your point across on this because it’s filled with fanboyism and people that don’t understand the laws and regulations that content creators are able to dodge.
