    I'm sorry but idea of review embargoes isn't just good for coroporation product of which you're reviewing. It's actually best thing ever for media. Say there's new card release. Nvidia sends it to LMG, and it gets delayed. Oops, LMG is behind the curve already. Or even if it arrives on time... Competitor can 'break the news' with an iphone, while LMG is busy editing their 8K video. Or competitor can just shove card on test bench, run some shit and call it a day while actual benchmark with proper methodology are days away... again, buried by first-is-best approach.

    I'm actually in an area where we have only a single choice for an ISP. I have called several other ISPs and all of them have told me they only need to run ~600 feet of line to provide us service and both of them refuse to do it for some unknown reason. I have even offered to pay for the cost of them to run the line and they still won't do it...

    Wow, some incredibly fragile petals here. Honestly, the banter between Riley and Linus in this video was tame af. You lot should see the banter seen regularly within my group of friends, you'd likely be horrified lol. If you got upset watching this G rated banter between friends, I suggest you steer well clear of Australia, because we really rip into each other just for fun.
    Maybe it's an American thing, getting offended so easily and by pretty much everything. Even getting highly offended on behalf of other people, sometimes people you've never even met lol. I mean, there's a thread here almost 60 comments long full of people who got so triggered that they're calling Linus names. Linus obviously has a different sense of humour to those of you who got offended on Riley's behalf, but instead of trying to understand that, you lot just went off the deep end calling him a dick, which is hypocritical af.

    Do you realize that you don't need that condenser mic in the middle of the screen and that it doesn't look good as a set prop at all? It could be placed discreetly off screen and it would still work perfectly and wouldn't be an aberration in my field of view. You don't see that kind of crap on tv, but apparently RU-clip is a parallel universe with Ikea plants, Edison hipster light bulbs and huge ugly condenser mics apparently. Sigh

    I'm really sad for sheeps that are so simple and naive to believe that whatever Linus or even Riley says to the public has to be correct while ignoring the most basic human interaction skill which is reading body language, it was clear as the sun that Riley was heavily offended and his facial expressions show this. You can believe whatever you like but I assure you that he was offended and that you are sheep.

    Why is the FCC making a decision that only helps ISPs and makes no sense from a public standpoint?
    Because 3 of its 5 members in particular are wholly bought and paid for by those companies. The current chairman was a lobbyist for Verizon before, and likely will be again after - only with a much higher paycheck, and no actual work. Congress could stop them easily, but won't because the current ruling party has made it very obvious over the last 20-40 years that they don't value the public, and _want_ to consolidate wealth in the hands of very few people. Cartel-like monopolies are great for that, as are stock buybacks. Everything they do leads to that same goal.
    Don't try too hard to rationalize every one of the decisions they make when the _one_ answer that fits in all situations is that they're fully compromised and corrupt.

    I thought your company is in Canada? The corporate tax rate in the us was 10% above everyone else. It was required for competition with other global companies. And was right to do. FCC ruling I am not sure the effect that will have. they Net Neutrality rule was not very old. And I would imagine that the isp's wont be doing much to throttle because likely they will be replaced by ones that wont

    I do not need your theory's or point of view of the American tax cuts. Also only a communist would make a comment concerning how someone else is using their money. Did you forgot to mention your last sponsor, The Communists Party. I have been a fan of yours a very long time but a couple of your videos promote socialist and communist views about business, utilities and taxes. Please don't make me smash that unsubscribe button. Still love ya but you should leave politics to the many tics sucking the life out of Canada and the u.s.

    So if Linus gets a massive tax cut for increased profit to his business then he would not increase the wages paid to any of his staff.
    It truly shows you the kind of person he really is that I've suspected all along. It's kind of sad; actually.
    I would make damn sure my employees were taken good care of first and foremost as a business owner.

    Wow it is so painful to hear a Canadian talk about American politics, like really freaking painful lol. First of all only your not a real capitalist if you think a tax break is a bad idea, in America there isn't even supposed to be a corporate tax! Capitalism is based on freedom really, freedom from the government to run your business how you see fit. Sure, tax breaks benefit rich people and stock holders even, but they actually DO benefit literally EVERYBODY!!! I am 18 years old, I work at a small town bank in Oklahoma and I am being transitioned into the IT department, anyway this year my pay is probably around 27-28K a year, so I am definitely lower middle, and being a single male I get taxed through the roof compared to my dad and others, since the Trump tax breaks have gone into effect I have on average an extra over $100 per month, sure it may not sound like much, but this is also the first time I can remember that stuff actually has gotten cheaper and not more expensive, gas is not $4 like it was when Obama was in office, etc. Also when people get their tax returns next year they are gonna be huge compared to what they have been, and just upper class, literally everyone got a tax break. Higher taxes actually DO harm the economy because people have less money to actually go out and spend at stores and put into the economy, not one policy that has gone into effect thanks to our current president has harmed this country, but has helped. I could go on and on about the pluses of a tax break but I really do not have time lol, basically less regulations and lower taxes ARE good for the economy. Just the observations of someone who actually lives here. :-)

  • Brad Small

    Linus doesn't have the whole story on stock Buy Backs . I don't agree with them from the reasoning that reinvestment in the company would do more for the consumer.; IE they could use capital towards R&D and long term goals. The devil lies in that it's is a free market publicly held company, and thus is not limited to a short list of individual investors, but a large and ever changing multi national group of large, medium and small investors... The earnings reports are quarterly, and the CEO and anyone involved in the board and company get paid and gauged on those reports.
    What's the incentive to the controlling interests in the company to do anything other than increase the company valuation. It's raw Capitalism, nothing but ! {{ Basically , as a CEO, if I look out for anything other than Stock Price, Dividends,and Short Term Growth , I will be removed and the common denominator will be put in place}}
    If I have a high valuation company (lean , and growing, "laymen terms") that provides Videos/Merch/Information, and advertising ... This is an example of Linus Tech Tips . They're a privately held company, and have a duty to, only the (usually small concentrations) of shareholders. In this example ; Linus or, his LLC company, and any other parties that invested and are still holding private shares.
    Linus thrives due to Capitalism. He worked his ass off, made a name for himself , was a resounding voice and visual personification of how this "Geek" ; I know shit about the world is catching on. Having said that Capitalism in it's current form... Sorry , as its past 30 year history has made us aware .. We're getting the shit end of the stick in this scenario. ++ Apple ++ Highest Valuation Company Ever++ ..... You'll always see the highest valuation company as an economy grows and the system allows companies like Apple to off Shore funds through , low , if not $0 tax country shell haven "companies".
    If I made $100K a year, and could make my real after tax salary $92K , who wouldn't I do that? ....... Yes Apple produces jobs; how many are above the median poverty line?... Ok ... Should an American company be able to "divert funds"(Profits) to tax havens? Yes the stock buy backs look bad, the whole reason the corporate tax was reduced in the US, was to bring some of this capital back in.... The longest bull market on record; do you not think companies are going to reserve cash?
    What I'm trying to say is that the fundamentals of a buy back are not bad. They give the publicly, and or privately held company an option to buy back equity in their company. If Linus had initial investors in LMG, he may want to pull back ownership to reduce outside influence, or leverage on his business in the future . So in that case he would buy back those shares. He will pay more than what they paid for them initially, but they got their return handsomely profiting by selling due to an increased price over the "market value" of those shares to date... " I'll buy you out for 20% above what the valuation is". Same scenario. Buy back are not bad , and they actually don't increase the price of the stock at all. It's a fact!
    What is bad?? What's bad is that a company that operates i the US , can funnel money (profits) to 13 other countries to reduce it's tax burden. Meanwhile the lower-class, middle-class, and upper class in that area are taking on extra societal/economic costs, due to a major Corporation with Human rights, Laws, and obligations to the society it operates in , can behave as a Sociopath, and limit it's "exposure" to the very community that helps it thrive.....

    Linus, after the tax break multiple large companies gave $1000 bonus to all their employees and said they were investing it back into the U.S. economy to expand. No company would make their products cheaper from a tax break, its not what was hoped for and it wasn't what anyone wanted.

    Linus, for a tab monster like you. For Chrome Browser you can try "The Great Suspender" plugin for unloading from memory your old tabs. It has various settings for how many days of inactivity to suspend tabs at. Also, just recently they upgraded their screenshot option that captures the whole page to be displayed in the suspended tab, so it shows a lower footprint image instead of an actual loaded page.
