    In your video "How does Linus make money? - 2020 Update" you said that you don't let companies pay for influence. But you let DriveSavers pay you to spread their false claim that they found the fix. As many other comments pointed out that it was actually Ipadrehab that found the fix. I really hope that this is a simple mistake, and that you will right this wrong.

  50. Tivnator SJT

    Tivnator SJTMonth ago

    It wasn't DriveSavers who discovers how to solve that problem it was iPhone Rehab. You should clarify that, Linus. They are adjudicating themselves something they only learned from people who freely teach how to repair their equipment. That's totally unfair...

    Would highly recommend anyone watching this video to check out Louis Rossmann's video titled "A word on big brand names in the repair industry ". Highly informative about why you don't necessarily need Drive savers and their $2000 Data recovery. Edit- And I despise any company that takes credit for someone else's findings, like they did with Jessa's solution from Ipad Rehab. Atrocious.

    This show is becoming one giant advert, o and by the way, have you seen the Louis Rossman video?

  76. leaky bean

    leaky beanMonth ago

    @Max Korinth I get you Max but disagree, for me bottom line, aside from the show becoming one giant advert, i think also LTT seem to be aligning themselves with the manufacturers and in this particular video drivesavers, of which there are many horror stories of price inflation for data retrieval. As regards MSI Jayztwocents and gamersnexus called it out for what it was Scalping, in a more upfront vocal videos instead of it being hid in the wan show. I have been watching Linus for years and love tech and also wish him all the best but i don't like the current direction of the show

  77. Max Korinth

    Max KorinthMonth ago

    @leaky bean not really, it's not something they've done in the past (or at least with any sort of frequency) and imo it's a much smaller deal than people are making it out to be. That's also basically the point of the wan show, to cover topics like that

    Hey Linus. Please make a correction to your video around the 10 minute mark. You gave credit to the wrong person/company. Jessa Jones from iPad Rehab figured out the solution to the speaker ic that caused boot looping; not DriveSavers. Check out Louis Rossmann's video here: for more details. He does not find you at fault, but I believe that credit should be given where credit is due because of all the hours Jessa Jones put into that solution. Thank you nonetheless for your videos on tech. This is one of the many sources I use to learn more about technology. Edit: Jessa Jones was not the only one to help come up with the solution. She had help and credited the correct people in a video. I still believe there should be a correction to your video, since DriveSavers had nothing to do with that solution and they only knew about it due to a text that they received from Jessa herself.

    Too bad the only quoted prices are $2000+. However if your data is that critical, that should be a small price to pay to recover your phone... Literally just watched Ipadrehab express this company quoted $900 to replace a screen. on oddly an iPhone 6 or 6s. Fairly old tech, I'd think this service would be expensive, not EXOTIC! :P However if everyone was Lunus, Everyone would get cheaper rates, maybe? While this company is very reputable, and the service is probably 2nd to none.... The prices will have you finding several 3rds if you know more than the common Joe, especially if you are relying on a stimulus check to fix your 10 year old phone...
