      He does his own thing but there is a cool WAN episode with Wendell as a guest. He talks about what he does now and his day job (youtube is just a side thing for him).

    what's missing from this youtube debate is the viewers. you produce content that we watch. you stop producing that content, we stop watching, they loose there ad stream, youtube dies. the rest is in fighting and penny pinching

    Trump will decrease the USA tax rate to 15% from over 40%. How does that push people to go to Canada?
    Also, UN control of the Internet will mean some awful country like Saudi Arabia can just silence their political opposition by taking out their websites from DNS.

    honestly if kain and wendell make their own youtube channel. tek syndicate is pretty much done. I'm pretty sure everyone watched tek because of wendell

  • awesomeferret
    awesomeferret 3 years ago

    What made me unsubscribe from Tek Syndicate was one video in which they were talking about speakers and they were looking at a pair of speakers with carbon fiber cones, and they said it was fake because "it wouldn't work". And of course, the video is still live with no edits or retractions. That's what you get when you never read your comments, I guess.

    Wendell and Qain are the reason I watched. Their knowledge far exceed what Logan and Pistol can ever dream of. Wendell and Qain need their own channel!

    I still think TheXvid's Advertiser-Friendly guidelines are a form a censorship, but not directly. Instead, I think it is a form of censorship through dissuasion. This means TheXvid is making people not want to make certain types of videos by taking away their monetization on that video.

    Burst would be a more appropriate term for catastrophic battery failure. Then again it is quite incendiary so maybe erring a bit on the side of overstatement is the point.

  • Chaitanya Soni

    Linus, FYI. Lithium ion/polymer batteries (i suspect they are using polymer), which are used now a days in our phones allow for a much higher continuous draw and charge currents. Its unit is C, which is a multiplier for its mah content, so if a battery is 3.7v 2000mAh @ 10c draw and 5c charge, you could draw 2a*10c= 20amps of current till it hits 3.2v and you could charge it at 10amps till 3.7v. What the phone companies are doing is pretty modest.
    And Li Po's are much cheaper to make which exceed the standards of a conventional Li Ion version

    Rocket Insurance IS a thing. But it only covers any costs after liftoff of the rocket. I believe SpaceX or posted something about this a few days after the explosion.

    bring wendell over he would be a credit to your channel, if he was willing anyway

    I bet linus is glad wendell is gone from tek syndicate, that guy actually knew his shit! Logan just read headlines and doesn't even really comprehend what he is reading now. Pistol was just something to look at, I never found any thing she said of value. Qain had good information but just seemed like someone I wanted to punch in the face all the time. I bet your subs will go in the void that was left. Until wendell makes his own channel!?! Honestly though I love this channel as well. Thanks for your hard work.

    1:35:42 ICANN handles standards, really the most threatening important thing they're in charge of is DNS (the resolution of domain names to IP addresses), but if they fuck it up, it is totally possible to just create an alternative system of DNS that uses the existing internet infrastructure, but doesn't listen to ICANN.

  • WindowHero

    1:08:33 Unfortunately, you can be aware of these sensitivities, but you need to be a certain size before you can do anything meaningful about it. You can be very business savvy, but without an existing large audience, planning most of these alternate income systems is impossible.

    "What is American culture?" asks Linus, as he sits there in blue jeans and a T shirt, discussing American technology, using a computer running American software, on an American website, with two Americans. Later he will likely eat an American food while watching an American movie or listening to American musicians. And he will be entirely oblivious. American culture has so permeated the world that people don't even realize that its American anymore.

    anyone who gives North Americans shit for not knowing what countries are or aren't in the EU or UK better know each and every state/province in America and Canada since they're obviously more globally versed.
    Rant over.

    For me it's just that all those companies started to realise TV is less and less relevant, so they want to advertise on TheXvid. But instead of embracing it they're like: "sup, we've arrived so now change all that shit and make it like TV". And I understand that everyone wants to make money, but TheXvid completely screwing their creators, some of which have been with TheXvid for a decade nearly since it's creation and who built that side from nothing with their content, just to please old, stupid companies and make a little bit more money is just wrong.

    Speaking as a *former* Tek Syndicate Patreon contributor, a long time forum member and fan... Tek syndicate forum *is* still a wonderful place to meet knowledgeable people and learn. The problem is Logan, it has always been Logan... Ward is a sneaky, greedy, selfish troll who censors the community and is *unfortunately* the owner of Tek Syndicate. Unless people band together and create a new community... Ward Hale will burn it down around him to preserve his ego.

    Oh my god, after listening to not knowing if Ireland is a part of the UK I just need to turn my computer off. Just FYI first many Irish people don't feel that Apple owes Ireland the money and it's about jobs not 1% tax. US tech companies employ 10% of the Irish population and indirectly another 10%. Plus Irish companies pay taxes for each employee not included in that 1% and it's not just call centers Ireland is the international headquarters for companies like HP, Microsoft and Apple

    I like the idea of the U.S. government getting out having a monopoly on controlling the internet, but frankly I think the U.N. would be worse. For starters, the U.S. is by far the largest funder of the U.N, so not much will actually change except for it introduces the potential for pettiness and less direct accountability.

    I'm guessing most people that get these behemoth laptops end up trading them in after less than a year. I had an Aorus with a GTX 970m that I traded in for a desktop and cheap ass Inspiron 14, and an Aorus isn't exactly massive. Even if laptops get to the point that they have the same performance as a desktop, they will still be more expensive and will be bulkier than a pleb notebook.
