    Why they have to release new phones and system versions every year? Looking like they is not so big spec upgrade from year to a year today. It's like PC/console market today. Why not do new phone every 2-3 years to make it look like bigger upgrade for a customer?

    Idk, I think youtube music is okay, can do everything I want it to do from play music and a bit more. Such as detecting new music I listen to on RSloft and then adding those songs to mixes. Also the RSloft music app on pc is a bit more convenient than having to open play music in a browser

    By the way, you can still use a phone after 3 years of updates. I know a lot of people that use phones with Android 7 to 9! There is no problem, you can do the things you want and paying for longer update cyclus is dumb because nobody wants to pay more than the phone itself and the tariff! The only option is introduce Android Fuchsia and forget about Android and use Phones like Windows devices that are not fragmented! Every Fuchsia in every phone will be the same and no fragmentation! Like Windows devices! And updates as long as the device works!

    Someone in the stream comments kept spamming about bringing back Napster. Rhapsody bought Napster, and then recently rebranded back to Napster. It's always been around, and has a different set of songs that are exclusive to their platform. How do I know? My Mom won't shut up about Rhapsody rebranding. She is a subscriber.

    Disagree with Linus with the "pay as you go" model for continued support... However, YES companies need to realise that 3 years is bullshit. We already go months and months without continued updates that improve the user experience anyway, so would that help... No I do t think it will. So basically your saying a user should pay to continue to get support for their device?? How about companies stop cutting off their users and "soft locking" their phone into a corner just because they use it longer than the manufacturer expects. That's the same shit that happens with TV's, not all smart TVs support the same apps and not all streaming services have an app for the TV you want to use... So should the user pay again to have something they most likely already PAY for... no that's incredibly anti-consumer. We live in a world we're companies complain their users use phones longer than they expect just to cut support for them a few years later... What if Microsoft did that with Windows 10, required you to repurchase a licence every few years... That's a solid F U to everyone who spent money to use it in the first place. But yes their does need to be another solution... Which is DON'T ARTIFICIALLY MAKE YOUR PREVIOUS GENERATION RUN WORSE OVERTIME JUST TO GET THEM TO BUY THE NEW ONE... If the OS won't run on the old thing, don't bring it to the old thing. Just add the same feature set like the skin and other functions that already exist on the device. Personally I'm sick of it, Huawei intentionally added more visual noise to their camera in a firmware update to make it look worse than the newer one... That's horse shit, even for them

I only started following the cabal of tech youtubers lately because I was finally in the market to build, holy crap the boner, I mean bias, for AMD is crazy. Completely different environment than ~5 years ago. What I think is crazy is everyone is geeking out over AMD chips that are just marginally better than Intels current older chips (referring to gaming performance, because let’s be honest it’s the only thing that really matters)

    I agree with Linus on this. I got a Pixel C tablet that no longer gets updates and that was not a cheap tablet. I am at the point now where I wont buy any more android tablets and will likely buy a surface next so I know I can have support for more than 3 or 4 years. At least I have Ubuntu touch running on my old Nexus 7. The clock is ticking on my Galaxy S9+.

  • Atis Zvirgzdins
    Atis Zvirgzdins

    In regards to phone software updates, why not get rid of all of the manufacturer bloat and have it function like an OS would on a PC? PCs don't have the security update problem, because they're all standardized. Why couldn't phones do the same? They're basically computers anyway. And if the manufacturer bloat stops getting updates then it should be possible to just get rid of it instead of being stuck with an insecure brick. As you said, the performance is at a point where only a small percentage of users even care about it anymore, so any updates to the Android OS itself shouldn't render the phone unusable anytime soon. Heck, even Luke, who's a tech enthusiast, doesn't care much about performance upgrades. If a PC can last 10+ years with updates, assuming you don't need the latest and greatest for pretty graphics, why isn't that an option for phones? The flagship phone prices have gotten so ridiculous that you could get a very good laptop cheaper and never suffer the 3 year planned obsolescence. There are reskin programs available on PC too, but no one uses them, because they cost performance and cause other problems, yet for phones each and every manufacturer has their own reskin which costs performance and causes serious, obsolescence inducing problems, yet everyone's okay with it. The phone companies have to realize that to justify exponential performance upgrades there has to be a need for them. Maybe it's about time where they take another look at the shitshow that is mobile gaming and take steps to cull it of trash, so that apps which actually push the hardware can get into the limelight, though at this point it will likely take as many years as it took to screw it up to get it even remotely functional.

  • Obake

    At the prices charged for these mobile devices longer term support should be a given. 5 years, no extra charge. More than that, sure go ahead and charge. Though I don't know what sort of demand there would be for that. You call the status quo unsustainable, I call it a scam. I'm totally with Luke on the phone specs too. I'm still running a Nexus 5x, and the only reason I'd want to upgrade is to get more storage. All I do with it is email, text, and browse the internet. I don't game on my phone. Touch is a terrible interface for gaming, though I could maybe get over that if mobile games weren't all ad-infested gacha trash.

    I bought tesla at $200 not because of youtube, but because of business news clearly not knowing a god damn thing about the company. Musk's vision got my attention and the relentless "FUD" content made it crystal clear there's money to be made by calling bullshit on the mainstream image of the company. I like you cuz you're funny and you get in nice zingers. You're a relatable dude. You make a strong case for buying Tesla, but i'd be a fool if i invested based off of one dude (or media conglomerate) analysis. If they want to blame someone for manipulating stock prices, they need go no further than CNBC and their ilk. When a punchline of a journalism cabal attacked Pewdiepie as a racist, i knew right away he was onto something and not a racist. I then watched my first Pewds video and i LOVE that dude. It's conditioning. They lie, we see, we assume they lie. By assuming they lie, I'm up 900% this year. It's just obvious if you look - silly that they dont.

    Still using an iphone 6s (5 years and running) It continues to do literally everything I need a phone to do. There's the random thing here or there that could perform a little better, but those are very few and far between. Phone performance by the iphone 7 was basically excessive for doing phone things, and by the 8 it was way overkill. All I've had to do is replace the battery once. Added bonus, still having a headphone jack. Honestly, if I could get a made to order upgrade, I'd want a current chip with about iphone 8 performance (and the massively increased in battery life that would give) in the body of an iphone 5s.

The AMD and Cyrix CPUs performed better than Intel's clock per clock operating minimally 200 MHz slower. This with the architecture, including reduced instruction set advatage enabled Cyrix 686 a Pentium substitute to perform like Pentium Pro also a reduced instruction set processor. As a marketing person you want the buyer to ask why down frequency processor outperforms the up frequency processors which Intel on cartel associate network competitive mitigated and eliminated. mb

    Google is the big company that wants to brag about having a "startup culture", with the caveat that unlike the other companies that simply fail at that because of corporate strictures, they're just successful enough to prove why big companies shouldn't *try* to act like startups without userbases and product lock-in. Yeah Amazon has corners of its website that appear to have not been updated, at least visually, in 10-15 years, but at least those corners tend to *work*, instead of everything getting API-broken internally and discarded because no one wants to spend time doing maintenance.

    24:00 Linus, there are people in the USA that are more concerned about the balance books of a Million Dollar Corporation over the health of their neighbours; They'll argue giving away 'free' products would be bad for a competitive business and people would stop buying the phones... As they sit there with their 5-year-old Android not knowing that their Congressperson have a deal with Blackberry to keep the security of their phones up to date.

    I use the standard Google pixel 4a using the nova luncheon, it's great and I don't see any point in getting the 5G version. and there are a few quality mobile games, especially the paid ones in the Google play store like Stardew Valley. Because it's a real PC game, and I was pleasantly surprised what a great job they did porting it over to mobile, then made the controls work really well with a touchscreen. Of course it also has controller support which is doubly great. Terraria is pretty awesome as well. I haven't tried it yet, but apparently there is a mobile port of that popular PC game that's currently trending called Among Us that you mentioned near the end of the podcast. I'm curious to find out how good it performs on mobile devices

    RSloft Music fails because it is just a jerry-rigged version of RSloft - it was an afterthought and it feels as such. I will never use it because Spotify has already expertly honed in on what people want in a music streaming app.

    There also enterprise editions from common phones like samsung galaxy a40. You get 4 years of security updates for little bump in price.

    Considering nvidia announced 3080 3090 shortages into 2021. Things don't look good for the 3070. I wonder if the delay was due to freq being to high on the aisle. That would make to much sense....

    G2A was giving out Ashes of Singularity with their lootboxes that you get from buying for certain amount. 95% that it. It was the most common game you got. I got one as well.

      Okay so the Humble Bundle as well. Which makes sense for them being in lootboxes as well.
