Q:

Hey Greg, I was wondering what you recommend to do when trying to get good answers from brands such as CoolerMaster, Thermaltake, and NZXT. How do you ask them questions and what are your experiences with the major companies? Also a cool video idea would be to show how to make a front panel wifi card. By that I mean use pcie riser cables, and mod your case to have the antennas stick through by usb ports, but keep the rest of the wireless adapter in the case.

A:

I have great relationships with a ton of Tech companies. Most of them are pretty relaxed and understand that they can't "buy your opinion", though some have tried.


Q:

Hi Greg! To someone going into the world of IT as a career, do you have any recommendations or tips on how to go about that? I've been looking into several programs and I was curious if you had any insight. Thanks a bunch man!

A:

Get started. IT has little to no barriers to entry. Start learning, start experimenting. Almost anything you want to know can be found on YouTube/Google.


Q:

What made you decide to become a youtuber while still going to school? As well as was it hard to gain the trust of the various tech companies to be able to get sample/demo items for review(if they do give you any)

A:

If you take a look at earlier videos, it started off as a Science focused channel. I grew into Tech and realized that I really enjoyed it. As the channel has grown, companies started reaching out asking us to advertise or review their products. You can see my ethical stance for YT here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFKhlxgoU58&


Q:

Hey Greg! Do you like Marmite?

A:

I prefer edible food.


Q:

Hey Greg, My question to you is: The consoles like Project Scorpio and stuff give the similarly priced computers a very tough market. So why doesn't such scaling and such a level of optimization reach out to PCs?

A:

Console game systems have a complete vertical platform. XBox and Playstation own the hardware, software, and game companies produce content that will work on specific consoles. PC games have to support hundreds of different configurations.


Q:

marty friedman or chris broderick?

A:

chris broderick

Selling your soul every day, the curtain starts to rise


Q:

Is your youtube channel dying?

A:

I hope not, it's feeding me! :P


Q:

Do you have a job outside of your YouTube?

A:

No


Q:

Did AMD paid you to suddenly changed your mind about Ryzen?

A:

I've been found out! On a serious note, I've never been paid by AMD or Intel for any CPU or GPU reviews. I don't accept $$$ for reviews. I am working with Intel to promote an upcoming storage offering, but those videos are clearly marked as sponsored and a "paid promotion".
