    25:00 You overestimate people. I don't think most of them knew it would fail. I don't think people think, or care in that way. But assuming they did, it goes like this as well. You're a young engineer, and want some experience. Why not go work for a soon to fail product? It is still experience, it pays your bills, and who knows? Out of sheer dumb luck, it could actually work!

    poor Jibo thexvid.com/video/25bSlY8JkEA/video.html He was more then just a stupid virtual assistant, he was a AI companion. They wanted it to be a companion, not something for microsoft or Amazon to use to sell people stuff.

    On the topic of designer babies, you both should watch Gattaca if you haven't already. Great film starring Ethan Hawke, Jude Law and Uma Thurman; it essentially envisions a world in which designer babies are the norm and those born naturally are now oppressed, discriminated against and unable to find work in desired fields.

    Retail computer sales is a whole different ballgame now, at least in the US. In the US, there is basically only Best Buy left, and the retail sales experience there is awful. It's good if you know what you want.

    Jibo is an amazing idea for the "delivery" mechanism of a home assistant. Google and Amazon should really be looking into replicating it for later-gen devices. If they can deliver something with that kind of personality for under $400 or so then they could really take lead in the market against the opposite company.

    The Jibo thing reminded me of Juicero. Overly expensive, it doesn't do anything of actual value to most if not anybody, and there were better and much cheaper alternatives. Don't back anything with an O at the end of its name I guess.

    The pseudo-leak of the rtx-Titan is a joke.
    It is terrible to see a professional losing his professionalism and becoming a vicarious agent of the NVidia PR department.

    I guess Linus doesn’t understand the value of outside investors have with innovation. The Jibo may be no good, but there are plenty of investments where people all say it will never work but then turns out to be a positive invention/innovation.

    I've had no interest in TheXvid Originals since I have no interest in paying for TheXvid. uBlock Origin removes ads just fine, so there was nothing I'd get out of paying. I may actually start watching Originals if they are just like every other video.

    Oh no, my bad, different stuffs : Jibo was useless but actually working but Tellspec could have been usefull while physically impossible to work. ^^

    I've had TheXvid Red for the ad-free watching since it was available in the US. Eight months ago, I actually started using Google Music at my other job. I have never seen a TheXvid Originals episode. Some of it sounded interesting, but not enough so as to bump it up in my viewing queue to go out of the way to watch it now.

    I liked the hardware of Jibo, the AI was behind the time though, they should have released it before hand so they could work on it live to improve it. but that would have been a large leap in spending.

    Dude, a lot of the stuff produced by youtubers blows TV and Hollywood (Netflix/Hulu...) productions away... I'll probably catch a lot of flak for this, but when was the last time you watched a series that wasn't completely cliche in the "drama" ... yes, a lot of youtubers try to do this too, but there are exceptions here in youtube. There are no exceptions in the big production studios. The script writers are freakin awful. I could write a book.. but last comment on this, your (Linus Media Group) production quality is great and over the past decade I see the improvements you've made; that is just icing on the cake though because it's the content that is interesting... that's where the big production houses fail and their production quality does nothing to fix that. Keep it up, I'm a huge fan!

    I lost Linus on his reasoning for Jibo. If anything, the fact that Siri was already out there and the success of other smart home devices is proof that if Amazon and Google hadn't outcompeted the creators, Jibo had a very good chance at success.

  • Igor Berezin

    seasonic killed my mobo after 1 year brand new with warranty seal sticker. Why did it kill my mobo? I opened it up and saw a white wire that was overlapping the circuit board which was crushed against the circuit board and it just happens to be punctured by one of the onboard components pins where they are soldered and were never cut down to size. so over time the point of the component on the board bored through the plastic jacket of the "patch" wire they put in to replace or make a lead on the circuit board that it shorted itself out from vibration sending high voltage from 120V area into 12V pin connectors frying most of the components in pc. Be ware. this was S12II or something like that power supply. Seasonic didnt take responsibility for their poor build quality and did not resolve the issue they caused and damages to my system which I had to rebuild from scratch back in 2015 which was a brand new 1yearold 2,000 usd pc build.

    I had to drop out of school too, highschool though. Passed all my course work & state exams except for one, math. I kept trying longer than anyone else did at Primavera Online Highschool. Had tutoring & every bit of extra help I could get to understand Algebra 2, Trig & Calc. Between just not getting it though & some of the course work actually being wrong, I never knew when I was actually right or not. If I wanted to continue trying, even though my Math AIMS scores were getting lower each time. I'd of had to pay & that's just ridiculous, to pay for more failed attempts at getting a diploma where I score worse each time? No thanks, I tried my best & proved it.
