    Hello Louis, i just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are an incredible man and a model of integrity and altruism. I watched many of your video this morning, the one where you speak about your company, your failures, your friends and family ... I know this is gonna sound crazy and i don't want to go too deep in it but i just wanted to tell you that you really helped me to get through this shitty day (more like weeks) ... you literaly saved my life by giving me hope ... i just had to tell you (that was awkward but honest ... ). Thank you very much ! This world need more people like you ! Also : your the best electronic specialist i know ! Your de-snagging method is true wisdom ! From a new subscriber !

    Louise: Regarding the charging chip that is proprietary, you could actually buy renewed iPhone Smart Battery cases like the one linked below, and desolder the chip that's also used there:

    i am having Issues with the new Macbook Pro Baseline Model(128Gb Variant)-
    The Screen Flickers Green Intermittently while Watching Video Content.
    The whole Video playing area shakes sometimes.
    The Lower area of the Screen was showing Vertical areas of bright and shadow regions (seemed like someone has put on lamps from below the screen)
    It's in Warranty...but the service centre said there is no issue with the hardware.
    I am running MacOS Catalina... and i don't think it's a software issue.
    Anyone Else facing this issue?
    what should i do?

    Why is Apple XYZ it working anymore, despite X mA:
    Because it has been engineered to fail. The idea is for you to buy an overpriced doodad not just once every few years but regularly, at least once a year. That's why everything Apple makes is particularly fragile and prone to break down. And don't forget about that Apple-exclusive Intersil power management device that is engineered to be right in the failure rate and mtbf average that is most profitable for Apple. In other words, the chip nobody but Apple has access to, nobody else can get, and that dies mostly just in time for the next macbook generation.
    They say that the lottery is a tax on the stupid. I say that Apple is yet another tax on the stupid with too much money to spend.
    Why spend $2500 on a notebook that is fragile, prone to break down and specced like competing notebooks in the $800-$1300 range? Because the case is shiny? Because the guy presenting it was wearing a black turtle sweater? I really don't get why people do what they do here. I really just don't. Why give good money to Apple?

    Hey Rossman, I think you should start a PeerTube instance. It's sorta like TheXvid but if it was torrents. You're smart enough to make one or hire someone to do it, and it would help get people more interested in the Fediverse too
