I think he's entertaining. The problem most /g/tards seem to have with him is that they are at the same average IQ level as this guy. Thus they can't fathom how someone as mediocre as they themselves can make money with a hobby while they need to work low wage jobs to get some budget GPU.
If you've got a higher IQ (1 or 2 std deviations higher) and thus have a lot of money to spend you can see the guy for what he is: an entertainer.
I enjoy his channel just as much as I enjoy watching taytay music videos.

I don't think people here care as much as you imply and i don't think people here actually hate him, obviously i can't know for sure.

We have all kinds of people here and many are here mainly for their very niche interest. I usually don't post outside of /dpt/, /tpg/, /fglt/ and shitpost threads (like this one) but when i do i only shit in the things i don't care about. It's not because i hate those things but because i don't care and maybe i will get to make someone mad, i would probably not act like that outside 4chan.

What happened to Tek Syndicate?
>>
Every time he does a sponsorship video, he downplays problems and basically lies for money to underage people on YouTube;
often contradicting things he previously said in the past (like the CPU temperatures shit).
I guess you could say that's the point of sponsorship, but still, the man makes a living by lying to kids about tech which translates to kids making hefty mistakes spurred by a shill. He's human trash.
>>
Linus Shill Tips is
80% >>>/v/
20% >>>/g/
Whether he should be posted on /g/ is debatable.
It is a fact however that:
- He leans more towards entertainment than being educational (even if it is 9gag level entertainment for retarded people).
- His reviews are geared mostly towards gamers and 13-year-olds rather than actual tech enthusiasts.
- He doesn't actually know much about tech beyond the level an average gamer knows.
- He is mainly a marketer and brand shill, rather than a tech(nician) or a tech hobbyist.
A tech hobbyist is interested in much more than just the narrow gaming tech field.
A /g/ related Youtuber should at least be involved in actual projects and wikis or reverse engineering and repair,
tangible and defined involvement like Wendell for instance.
That is to say: His reviews of hardware are shallow and scratch the surface, and the same goes for software,
because that is his maximum capacity and any more would end up with him looking stupid with every word (and he already has instances of speaking stupidity on the shallow level of hardware discussion).

I believe that banning LTT from /g/ would increase /g/'s general quality pertaining to the board's main topic: Technology.

I also believe that moving LTT to /v/ would also increase /v/'s general quality pertaining to video gaming since getting a bit educated on how gaming hardware works would reduce stupid GPU/CPU wars threads.

Linus can theoretically be a shill of everything /g/ loves, and /g/ will still rightfully hate him because mutual agreements on certain products don't magically invalidate that he is a dumb faggot shill who should be posted on the dedicated containment gaymer board for tech retards instead of /g/.
>>
LinusShillTips isn't /g/. It's >>>/v/.

He is a dumb label reader.
He doesn't know even basic physics, math, or coding.
He doesn't have, and never had, a legit tech job.
He doesn't have any tech related degree/diploma/course certification.
His Linkedin is full of management bullshit, swimming instructor, and boyscout.
Yet in spite of all of this he acts as if he knows anything, and as if he represents the tech collective.

He is a fucking marketer. His hardware reviews are about as informative as reading the fucking PDF.
The average Joe is more likely to get fucked over by listening to his idiocy.
His "humor" is 9gag level.

He is so fucking tech illiterate that he had to employ a special writer for his TechQuickie channel because he's too stupid himself.
The same faggot who tried to push a spiritual book as a solution for Carpal Tunnel or something.

His group is a marketing group, not a tech group.

He had to Internet beg for money in order to move to an office, which he managed to get ripped off on because he is a dumb faggot (admits it).
A fucking hotel cleaner in Las Vegas who gets paid on average $2400-$2700 a month can sooner or later afford what Linus has to beg for on the Internet, or beg to the manufacturers and labels.
He depends on his wife's BJ income, and she looks like those roach monsters from Terra Formars (pic related).
He pays his faggot employees minimum wage [admitted in the WAN show discussion between him and Luke], his ad revenue has halved in the meantime, and YT revenue is shit in the first place.

If you want computer case angles and proper feature description with objective reviews, you watch those faggots HardwareCanucks, who even go as far as reviewing fucking dust filters.
If you want to post on-topic /g/ related YouTubers, you post people who actually have tech jobs, tech education, and practical application; like Wendell from TekShitdictate, or Louis Rossman for board repair and reading blueprints.

Fuck off to >>>/v/.
>>
He is prosumer trash that appeals to the same audience as CSI: Cyber. They're both packed with about the same amount of useful information.

He couldn't make his Cisco router work. He couldn't make his pfSense router work. He couldn't build a 1u server so "1u servers are teh sux". He clipped parts off his 2u server to get components to fit. He tried to build a NAS. He did that terrible 10Gbe LAN implementation. And He tried to water cool his house with hilarious results.

He is as amateur as they come but he's too stupid to see it. His viewers are ignorant fools if they take him seriously. Good on him for fleecing them but anyone who follows his bullshit is dumber than Linus. I've only ever seen part of one of his videos and I thought it was an April fool's day show until someone pointed out they were all like that. I've gotten wind of all his other fuckups second hand.

If someone advertises in his show I won't buy their product. I'm assuming it doesn't work and they have to pay someone to shill to the ignorant masses.

His show looks like a high school project that didn't work and he's always trying to figure it out at the last minute while the judges are watching.

His wife looks like a Japanese urban legend monster. I know she's probably Korean or Viet but she looks like something out of Japanese lore that greets you on the street after dark and eats your skin if you don't tell her where her dead daughter is buried.

>>
>>63320421
>and shows the results no matter what they are.
Shows the results that end in him removing a video after actually knowledgeable people shit on him for it, like the oven baking retardation.

Unfortunately, the point is to avoid that video coming into existence in the first place before the damage is already done by influencing clueless kids to destroy the ovens of their parents, and potentially make things even worse for the GPU since various components have various melting points and fixing the circuit doesn't mean other healthy components haven't been fucked as a side-effect now.

Sadly, it's not that retards are allowed to post on YouTube, it's that retards are then being socially "accepted" by even bigger retards and given free legitimacy as a result, to the damage of the whole sector and its reputation.

Him making money doesn't impact my life in any way.
But his content is bad.
He does not know how to review anything, so if you classify him as a tech reviewer, he is a bad one.

/g/ has two choices:

a. Idolize a married man with children who actually made computers, knows technology, is worth hundreds of millions, and teaches children how to use computers rather than selling children products through scam and deceit.
Steve Wozniak.

b. Idolize a manlet who had no choice but to marry the uglier Asian sister of his past female co-worker, who doesn't know shit about computer beyond what an average gaymer does, is barely worth a million, and scams children for sponsorship money by trying to sell products that he himself doesn't understand the workings of.

I hate to say something so aggressive, but you probably actually don't belong here if you can't tell from his videos. How many have you watched? If you just watched one, maybe you won't see it, but I was actually subscribed for a while, and it didn't take long for me to lose all patience with him.

I should really let you form your own opinion properly, but to sum it up, he's surprisingly bad at everything he does, constantly making poor decision. It's very normie-friendly content, in the worst way possible. He has aggressive advertising in every video, always making deals with audible.com, some mattress place, intel, etc. It's like a generic reality TV show that happens to be loosely about technology.

Very very old webm. She's no longer involved with the show, but the channel does exist. Literally only Logan is still the same. He's picked fights with everyone competent and had to get a whole new crew. They seem worse, but they still often seem more knowledgeable than him.
