I can understand shoddy cable management, but all the other stuff is bad. I mean if someone followed their build they will probably have a non functioning computer in a year.Once he mentioned 'tweezers' you knew this was going to be a horrible PC build. Everything he did was wrong and the cable management was a disgrace. What a shit show, but it was fun to watch the numerous fuck-ups.
Yup. That starved for air power supply will probably die before anything else.I can understand shoddy cable management, but all the other stuff is bad. I mean if someone followed their build they will probably have a non functioning computer in a year.
Surprised accusations of racism didn't find their way into this. You know that was certainly part of the discussion at Vox HQ.
the ironing is delicious.
Time to use the dislike button on all of the verge's videos...
This is my understanding of it, but;I feel a bit weird saying this, being a European (so somewhat sceptical of "US suing culture"), but: either youtube and/or the affected youtubers really should sue for damages.
Not to mention ligation will bleed the youtubers dry because they aren't getting revenue from their channel because its been striked. Verge has reserves to last until the individuals are broke. Corporate bullying tactics, the big guy can out last the little guy.This is my understanding of it, but;
Are there any damages to sue over?
In such a suite, the plaintiff is going to have to show that they suffered damages, usually in the form of lost money, in order to be awarded anything. In fact,if they can't substantiate any damages the suite might get thrown out entirely.
Technically, its a legal defense. You use fair use as a defense in a lawsuit to argue that you didn't violate someone's copyright and the judge or jury (depending on the trial) has the decide whether or not that defense is valid in the specific case.Fair use is a legal right.
I don't see how Capital One can be blamed for anything. They sponsored a video of a computer build by what is ostensibly a technology site; they could not have guessed what a disaster it would have been. Hell, most people couldn't believe what they saw even after watching it.Everyone goes after the video, which was abhorrent, yet nobody seems to remember that the original article and video was sponsored by Capital One.
Any time a major mainstream media source posts anything technology related, I always take it with a boulder of salt because most of the time, you can tell their “recommendations” seem to be more influenced by advertising dollars than benchmarks or objective criteria. In the majority of those kinds of articles, the superficiality, lack of rigor, and lack of important details is obvious.I've read a few article from the Verg and always leave wondering if what i read was correct. Watching this video and seeing their reactions to criticism tells me that im not to far off from what I thought. I don't watch or read their stuff anyway but for some reason my google article feed keeps wanting to push this shit into my feed.
People whining and complaining instead of fighting for justice and their rights is pretty typical. I mean, even those working at Verge are being whiny little bitches by abusing Youtube's strike system in the first place.I feel a bit weird saying this, being a European (so somewhat sceptical of "US suing culture"), but: either youtube and/or the affected youtubers really should sue for damages.
I blocked a channel recently, but it was a slightly involved process. Had to click the three vertical dots, then click not interested. After you click that, some options appear where the video was, one of which is "Tell us why". Click that, and you can click "Not interested in this channel." I did that with Watchmojo a few months ago and have not seen any Watchmojo recommendations since.Too bad Youtube no longer allows you to block channels. Verge is garbage IMHO.
Yes and no. The US is the worst in that the plaintiffs don't have to pay back the defendants in the case that they lose. In the EU, the loser of the court battle has to pay all of the legal fees for the winning side, which makes such battles much rarer. There's a reason more than 70% of the world's lawyers are US lawyers.Welcome to any justice system, friend.
did you watch the original video of The Verge it it was very bad (and it got past 12 people before it was posted, as they was credited i believe in the end of it lol)I never did get the fuss over the Verge or Vox - their content never was outstanding. Now they pull this crap? How principled of them
