    8:35 to me all the stuff that has the word GAMING is sold at people that don’t really game, I have a stupidly expensive RBG keyboard and mouse but it been RBG isn’t for when I’m gaming as I don’t look at the keyboard when gaming, the RBG lights on it are for when I’m not gaming so it looks pritty, my mum loves her RBG keyboard because it looks nice in the table.
    Oh word of warning Corsair RBG keyboards have a massive open hole under the spacebar that’s great for dumping dirt or water into the keyboard without you knowing or thinking you got most of it, I didn’t know about this dumb design fail til I had to take one apart to fix it, I don’t know what Corsair we’re thinking leaving it open like that.
    Back on topic I think Gaming is suffering from boy racer syndrome were the main point of the car is to show it off not actually use it for its intended purpose, leading to cars with speakers so loud they can break the windows if used with the doors closed.
    38:40 I can’t believe this passed (I’m from the UK) and I didn’t hear about this till it had already passed, this is one of the dumbest things I have heard of and was clearly done by people that don’t understand what they were voting on.
    It will force me into using a VPN.

    The Eu was built on the idea that "all" of Europe would come together in the spirit of free trade, environmental laws, human rights, economics and the right to move and work freely.. problem is that 95% of the citizens in the EU have no idea, or simply doesn't give a shit about the laws that are imposed on them. The EU is a good idea, it's just run by a bunch of fucktards, governed by people who doesn't give a shit.

    Um... you know that this means 60% less people looking at ads on the net... if they just stop us from seeing content... Just get a cheap/free VPN and watch the content you like... I mean, piracy of games and movies is still a big thing, even after 20+ years, I don't see how they will stop us from watching content from Europe unless they make all of the videos locked and you have to have an account linked to a phone number or an ID card in order to stop the majority of the people from seeing content

    Regarding the EU bullshit policy, It's really a shame, it's typical in politics right now where you have people who don't really understand how this works. In principle the law is good - It will never work and do far more damage than good though, and it's a classic case of old people...

As for me, I'm taking a different approach using some (at first) limited AI proactive help. On another subject, you guys get a ton of cool hardware to play with. Some of your audience members are specialists in Computer Science fields such as programming, data science, and IT. Have you ever considered doing a collab video with members of your audience to do something cool that you lack the in-house expertise to do alone?

    About the eu subject: I am glad that you say what you wanted to say about the Art. 13 subject. Because the previous video talking about this was just horrendous.
    Now, about the details: I get that it is a lot of work to look at all the comments made on CHclip en the LTT forum, but the simple fact is that the Europeans don’t care. This is due to the fact that the amount of hate speech (doesn’t matter whether that’s against Muslims, Jews, disabled, women, or any other “minority” group) is really high Europe. The EU tries to counter this by passing the bill, because specific EU countries tried to beat this by passing law but didn’t succeed. Please be aware that you guys are now describing a clash of between the United States of America 🇺🇸 (and Canada 🇨🇦) and the European Union 🇪🇺

  • Rikorage
    Rikorage Před 7 měsíci

    This whole Article 13 issue looks like a way for people who are losing their power of influence to people who are influential on platforms like CHclip, to be completely censor them, to the point where those small individual creators won't be able to produce or be a part of something that could have an impact on a large audience anymore.

    The people of EU need to actually have a discussion with the sheltered individuals you "elected" into office, and let them understand this: If they continue to stifle the freedoms of the people, and deny their freedom of speech and expression, there will be a backlash, and it will not go well for them. It's not a threat, it's a premonition. You can only poke a wild animal so much before it turns to claw out your eyes, and the Internet and it's populace is one of the biggest animals there is, and I doubt there will be enough justification or rhetoric to prevent the inevitable backlash of dissent from those who are currently being pacified by the content on the Internet if it's damn near taken away.

    I also wanted to add, that Laser James is a crucial asset to your business, Linus, so you better not lose him for something stupid. Like money.

    Google like: Yeah, FU EU... we can still use your loopholes to not pay taxes, right?
    (search for Double Irish, Dutch Sandwich)
    And consumers like: FU EU for protecting consumers' rights...
    So Google is going to charge for their play store? Samsung have their store, and there is also Amazon Appstore, what if manufacturers just preinstall those? Then they loos their cut for paid apps, in app purchases...?
    I mean I understand the pressure, most users will expect the play store to be there (and probably more importantly CHclip, Maps, Gmail), but it seems strange that "so we cannot have only our apps preinstalled - but we make money from those apps and some people might not use them - then you cannot have them at all" What?!
    I understand "If you want us to give the option for users to install other services instead of our then you have to pay money" but here it's more like "if you want to heve our service - from witch we make money - then you have to pay money" ...
    so it feels like Google is not using their Android market share to force their apps on users, but using popularity of their apps to force money out of manufacturers... Maybe I'm missing something.

    Article 13 is the dumbest idea the EU had in a while. Since people can be liable for things placed on large platforms, it means that some random terrorists could tweet/fb/yt their next terror action and the platform can be liable for those terrorists' actions because they were posted on their site.
    No platform in the world would risk that.

    Can't you just host and support from outside the EU. Free from its Draconian influence? The internet can easily relocate material outside the area of influence, making it irrelevant. Until the focus on access points and restrictive practices like some of the more overtly controling countries. That's going to make it hard for them to talk about freedom and peace when they are as bad as some of the most restrictive governments in the world.

    On Article 13: I wish Linus (and most people commenting) would put in a little more effort to research controversial topics like that prior to commenting on them. Finding out the following details just took about 2 minutes of reading the Wikipedia article about this.
    In this case larger for-profit companies (>50 employees or >10 miillion euro turnover) have to implement "effective and proportionate measures", act "expeditously" and "prevent [the content's] future availability". Quite vague, isn't it?
    Small businesses (LMG could grow another 150 % in employees to still be considered small) only have to act "upon notification by rightholders". It adds that "different measures may be appropriate and proportionate per type of content". So you will probably not have to watch all videos posted by your users in the forum.
    Let me add that I am still very much concerned about the implications of the possible outcome that big companies will implement measures to automatically scan all content being uploaded which can have huge implications to freedom of speech in the long run.

    Not understanding EU legislation doesn't give the part about EU legislation a lot of weight, tbh. But great job at spreading the fear propaganda sold by Google. If ever there was a company that needs to be dealt with due to monopolies, it's Google and how they drive the narrative.
