What Linus said should they do.

  • TheGreatGazoo™ Dec 02, 2017 12:33 AM
  • Yup, I supported them to the end. Linus has some very interesting and very important things to say. Hope many of you can see this before it is no longer available.

    Edit - go to 41:40 to get to the meat of it. Linus takes the high road and says the good stuff and what could have been better.

  • What comes around....

  • For the record, I'm pretty sure I planted that strategy into Linus' head. But Linus always made things work or happen.
  • MisterKnowItAll Dec 03, 2017 08:08 AM
  • It was some interesting comments to be sure. I think Linus was very considerate and professional in what he said.

  • We discussed it together, FA :p

    I had a few ideas that I added when I pitched to Steve and you hated when I pitched a store in Kamloops iirc!

    But yeah I think between the old team we could have ironed out the details.

    Definitely. Not rocket science or hard, like building a video and media channel. Now that would be hard. Oh wait!!! NVM

  • Hey Closet Gamer!!!
    How can I get ahold of a couple of your Closet Gamer Edition Noctua Fans???
    I have one, but want more, because the color scheme matches my orange BeQuet case perfectly!!!
    Do you have any kicking around still???????
  • ClosetGamer Dec 04, 2017 08:55 AM
  • It's spilt milk at this point I guess..

    As for the fans, Jimmy, sorry I don't have any left :(

  • I've got 6 of those Closet Gamer 140mm fans in push-pull on my rad. I have some stickers if anybody ones them!

  • Linus's idea regarding setting up mall kiosks just for delivery and tech support sounds like it would have actually been a fantastic way to go. Certainly seems like for the price of one of the store in the States they could have set up 10 or more of the kiosks and that would have worked well.
  • TOAOnet Dec 05, 2017 11:07 AM
  • It was a decent idea, but I would have fixed the inventory control and warehousing systems first. You need a solid foundation before you can build anything.

    Of course, hindsight is always 20/20. :)

  • linus is smart, thinking about being bought out by amazon... they are bigger now than 5-7 years ago so it makes total sense giving the situation today.


    This company could be bought for millionsssssss

  • I guess this means my Greasemonkey script is broken, I totally missed Linus posting. Should of looked like ^--

  • lord wu only has a big head but small brain. he is surrounded by yes men and nothing else. it's his way or the highway and indeed we have lift off. after reading Steve Jobs autobiography he had a relevation that he is the next coming of jobs, MA, Zuckerberg and bezos. at times the Lord believed his app will have more user base that Facebook wechat and weibo combined.
