Nice show guys, the amount of silly was very entertaining
I think patreon, indigogo, kickstarter, etc. are amazing. There is a limit where it becomes begging which I do not like, but if people give something back to the supporters (be it a youtube show, game, fisical product or just a laugh) I think it is great. It basically makes it easier for people be inovative, creative in some way which isn’t supported by massive corperations and makes it easy for you to vote with your wallet.
Poor Stuart I think you fell in love with the wrong phone, because it isn’t built to last. That is what I think is the biggest problem with oneplus phones. Tech support is crap, so if your phone breaks you’ll probably have to buy a new one. Also as you mentioned, their team is small. I do not see their software updates last much more than a year, because they do not have the reasources to keep it up. Maybe I’m wrong but that is how I asume it is going to happen. The advantage of course is that the phone is so cheap that replacing it isn’t an issue, but still. I think the design is okay, but not that exceptional. Yeah the back looks nice… For a few months because scratches. Maybe I am a bit harsh on the phone because I do not trust oneplus 100%, but I think that there is a company which outclasses the industrial design of the oneplus x. Fairphone, with their fairphone 2, not because it is pretty, but because it has a screen that can be replaced toolless. I really like the fact that the phone itself has a protective case built into it and that (As far as the forum seems to know) it will be relatively easy to root, without losing warranty and possibly an option in the future to install alternatives to android. their intensions are to make it last for 5 years which I don’t think they’ll reach, but you already have a warranty for 2 with good tech support.
I hope Apple wins. Not because I like Apple, but simply because I think the DOJ is part of an evil system which aims to abuse our fear to gain power.
begging < earing money through crowdsourcing
fairphone 2 > oneplus x
Apple > DOJ
