      Interestingly, CRT TV's used to measure the whole-tube size, including the approximately 10% of border+mounting that didn't show any picture. When flat screens came out, the manufacturers actually switched to measurements based on viewable area, and not counting any bezel or mounting brackets around the panel. I was honestly shocked by this pro-consumer move.

    Yes, I have been harmed by tech company lies.
    Back in 2015 I was in the market for a mirrorless camera. At the time, the best options on the market was the Sony A7, Panasonic GH4 and the Samsung X1. Yes, Samsung made a mirroless camera and it was way ahead of its time. The camera division was rather new but they had the whole road map for new lenses that were going to be launched. So, I bought the Samsung camera.
    Soon, the launch dates for these lenses and accessories were being missed but Samsung said not to worry, they were still going to deliver.
    Eventually, they just quietly shut it down and the thousands of dollars I paid to buy into there system was meaningless.

      end of the day, i would prefer a usable camera that takes good photos and videos- day & night, ultrawide is an option, and optical zoom is a novelty. Just a solid camera with OIS should be more than enough in day to day clicks. But as we know companies & their tech have never reached to that optimum, so they r trying to distract us with more cameras.

It would definitely make an interesting video on how people have paid $3-10k for "full self driving" feature that early marketing promises presented as L4+ autonomy. Elon Musk has for years confirmed FSD to be L5 autonomy and that it will be shipping "next year". Yet, feature continues to be vapor ware and Tesla refuses to refund FSD purchases while not giving any official timeline for delivery.

      Marques is pretty unique. He is incredibly successful on youtube, without clickbaity reaction crap. There's a difference screaming "TELSA LIED; UBWUBUBUB", and calmly explaining that yes, their numbers are real, but also kind of deceiveful. You can absolutely criticise rich and powerful people, you just have to do it the right way. In this example, Elon would absolutely not be offended by Marques telling people this. They even write it on their website. And it is definitely not cause for outrage. It's just marketing, and in all honestly, definitely not the worst deceiveful I've seen by a long shot

      about the sensor issue (or the acceleration question)... it is a question of standards. if everyone is following that standard, it is ok and it is not a lie but if one company decides to use s different standard to get to those figures and doesn't tell you that, then it is deceiving.

    *I think we are all missing the point of having a car on the streets to get from A to B. The point is getting from A to B in the safest way possible, not the fastest way. A zero-to-60 acceleration rate less than 2 seconds is about as useless as speeds over 100 mph; you can't really use them very many places. Tesla is focusing so much on the performance of its cars that it there is not much left of its attention to affordability.*

    This intrigued me so I used the chart from the donut video and googled transmission and differential ratios to make a better chart that compares the roadster to its competition using the same metric. In case anyone is wondering, the roadster is direct drive meaning there isnt a transmission. There is a planetary gear reduction however as seen below.
    Roadster: 8.27:1 overall ratio x 819.89 Lbft (shaft) = 7376 Lbft wheel
    Lamborghini SVJ: 3.909:1 1st gear x 3.39:1 diff x 530 Lbft = 7037.6 Lbft wheel
    Mclaren 720s: 3.98:1 1st gear x 3.30:1 diff x 568 Lbft = 7460.112 Lbft wheel
    Shelby GT500: 3.14:1 1st gear x 3.73 diff x 625 Lbft = 7636.35 Lbft wheel

    With the 1 inch sensor thing I think it more of a different type of measurement system. As long as they compare sensor to another sensors with the same criteria then it’s not a problem. As long as they are not saying “look our competitors have a sensor that’s .6 inches long diagonally but our sensor is a 1-inch sensor” then it’s fine
    Edit: think it like a nautical mile vs regular mile. Inch sensor vs regular inch. As long as you don’t mix the two measurements then it’s fine.

      @Kaizen And the excuse I hear is "well it's so that variations in speed can be more accurately defined" or whatever they're saying...is the internet that slow so that a single bit slower is THAT important??! Especially if the data storage unit is in bytes you might want to have them both be the same so that we can imagine how many mobile games we could download in a few seconds for example (sometimes the argument that "it's the unit of internet speed, that's how it is" like... aren't you supposed to define these units?? Everyone's would've followed the market if they defined it!!). It's also subtle because they're basically expecting you to know that Gigabits is Gb and Gigabytes in GB so if you've been screwed, it's your fault.

    • Viki Ai
      Viki Ai Vor 4 Monate

      ​@Hr Gwea Yes. Also, serial lines are traditionally measured in bits per second because they originally transmitted 1 bit at a time (various more 'modern' transmission protocols manage to squeeze multiple bits in a wire cycle, or multiplex over multiple wires, I am talking back in the days of RSC232c and 75-300bps modems).
      It is also (and still today done that way) because the line rate doesn't necessarily match the data rate due to the above mentioned protocol overhead which varies the data speed possible on exactly the same wire depending on what protocol is used, so the wire itself tends to get a bitrate measurement as that is the only thing that is independent of transmission protocol choice.

      @Adam Ross They are actually short changing us as 1MB is 1,024,000 bytes. So a 1TB hard drive should actually have a capacity of 1024MB not the 960MB it actually has.

    You make some good points on measurements, and yes it would be nice if industries would adjust their naming conventions to more accurately explain sizes. Regarding Tesla and Hummer both claiming their torque figures at the wheel instead of the crank, yeah, use the standard, or explain why they measured at the wheel and compare those numbers with what the competing vehicles achieve at the wheels... Apples to apples measurements...Oh, with your advertising picture, maybe put both Tesla AND Hummer in the picture so as not to mislead people, seeming to imply Tesla is the only "bad guy" in the story.

    I want to share my personal experience with Tesla regarding this. I got delivery of a new Model Y last month and just recently discovered on my own that the front console USB-C ports are missing and that the wireless charging is not functional. After doing some googling, it appears this has been a common issue over the last few months due to the supply chain issues. My gripe is that this was never communicated to me when I picked up my new vehicle (which I paid full price for in good faith that it was a fully functioning vehicle as advertised), and I had to discover this on my own. I'm currently going through the process of getting this serviced, but am getting the run around on if I can get any sort of restitution for this (ex credit for 1000 free supercharging miles) which would go a long way to restore good faith.

    Another misconception: Transistors.
    When a company markets their product to have a new 5nm technology, 14nm, 28nm, etc… its usually a marketing tool. If you were to cross-section these chips and measure their nodes (using a high magnification electron microscope such as SEM, TEM, STEM), you would get varying results +/- 10nm. Meaning, it is possible to measure ~10-15nm for a transistor that is claimed to be 5nm,

      Perhaps using 5nm FinFETs is a bad example from my original comment due to its more complex structure. However, say I had to determine that a certain chip uses CMOS architecture 45nm process. Generally, when I cross-section these, I could measure 51nm, 55nm, at its gate. And then it is up to our best judgment (based on the average measurements) to determine its process. Since no manufacturer would use the naming scheme 51nm process, the closest number we can say is 45nm process (since this is how the part was marketed).

    • Sam
      Sam Vor 8 Monate

      @Nova Yup!

    • Sam
      Sam Vor 8 Monate

      @jxmiie Yes, you are correct. The term "5nm process" is simply a naming scheme and is not a reflection of their geometry.
      Generally, with CMOS transistors (>28nm), you would measure its gate length to approximate the chip process (more straight forward). I would see those more often in the lab.
      With today's new FinFETs (3D structure), measuring its "fin" alone is insufficient. For instance, to determine a 14nm lithography process, you would measure the Fin pitch, width, and height (example: theoretically, intel's 14nm should have 42nm pitch, 8nm width, 42nm height; Samsung's 14nm should have 48nm pitch , 8nm width, 37nm height.). However, these measurements would often vary when you start measuring them (depending on which part of the chip you are looking at, manufacturer, etc.) .
      I guess what I'm trying to convey here is similar to MKBHD - a lot of these "names" are mere tools and is not a reflection of its actual geometry.

    The 1" sensor issue is completely arbitrary. It is a comparison to the functionality of previous technology. In this context, the 1" is nothing but a naming convention that corelates to a sensor size that performs in a certain way. You wouldn't even have a frame of reference to distinguish the capabilities of the industry standard "1inch sensor" to one physically measuring 1 inch.

  • Felan
    Felan Vor 2 Monate

    Same principle as the one inch sensor goes for the mft sensor. Micro four third. Yes, that sensor has a 4:3 ratio and that's why the name still fits but it comes actually from those old tubes too.
    Fun fact: the mft sensor comes closer to the ratio of old photo film then the current full frame sensor does which is called full frame (if I remember it correctly) because it is as large as said 35mm format film.
    And if you turn that 35mm film sideways, you get the area of an aps-c sensor (1.5x or 1.6x crop) which was used for filming back in the days.

    The sensor size measurement is exactly similar to how we still use "horsepower" as a unit for measuring power. As new technology/devices comes out, we still need a way to compare it to existing one. The problem is that after a while those old techs are not relevant anymore.

    2. Tesla's mission is to accelerate sustainable energy. It doesn't make sense to put all those batteries in a car that barely gets used. Much better off going in multiple every day Tesla's like the Y.
    3. They simply don't have enough batteries to produce all the cars they want. There is so much demand for their cars that they sell literally every single one usually before they're even produced.
    4. That being said I do believe that when it comes out it will be absolutely insane. Just bonkers. Don't end the reservation 😂

    I guess the bottom line is that you cannot define a two dimensional object size (image sensor) with a line. Area is square inch (or mm), not inch (or mm). Or perhaps you can, if you use a very old standard for cameras.

    For me the lack of transparency is the biggest annoyance. Like when Intel/AMD/Nvidia make claims like "Our new CPU/GPU is 30% faster than the closest competitor*." without being clear about the circumstances in their testing.
    Also the first thing that came to my mind was a Nokia commercial which claimed that the entire video was shot on their new phone with PureView OIS, but in the ad you could see a reflection of a full sized film camera being used to film the scenes. :D

    As a linguist and an English teacher, this "1-inch sensor" thing is right up my alley! Just the other day I was telling my students how "turn on" ended up becoming "switch on" because of technological advancements, from a knob, which we would turn, to a switch. And nowadays we have "power on" on our cellphones. Studying languages and how and why they've changed is just so much fun!

      TV and radio shows use to say they were 'transcribed' when they weren't broadcast live. Now we say recorded. We still commonly say that we are 'filming' when recording with digital media. Ads for televisions use to refer to the tube size, now they say picture or screen size. Most people still refer to the accelerator pedal as the gas pedal, but that will change as we make the change to electric vehicles. The '1-inch' sensor should go away as well.

    Once a plaid model s went 0-60 in 1.98 sec before and I do believe it can do that even with out foot roll out cuz the distance between the Lazer is still quite small and GPS is not the best at response times.
    in the right conditions they did go only a little faster than the advertised speed look at the model X plaid and the model s plaid weighs over 4,000 lb and last I heard they might use the plaid platform the 4680's and the carbon sleeve motors and it will be a lot lighter which means it will go beyond 0-60 in 1.9 if they haven't electronically limited it which I think there doing with the Plaid's top speed because with the acceleration that thing has it can do more!

    To be fair, no information is actually valuable by itself, and anyone who knows enough to care about the actual dimensions of the physical photosensitive portion of the device would know it’s not actually one inch. Since we can compare the size of sensors on one product relative to another product and they are always using the same measurement, there is no problem.
    Plus, if you imagine two companies, both with 1 inch sensors in their devices it would be ridiculous for one of those companies to be the first to switch to advertising their sensors as .67 as to the general public it would appear smaller and thus less desirable.

I feel like it doesn't really matter as long as it's the industry standard. If the camera industry and photograph industry uses a different terminology and calls it a 0.56" sensor and smartphone companies are calling it a 1" sensor then yeah that's really misleading. But as long as they are the same it's not only harmless but it's accurate and not a lie at all.

    As anyone who is a car enthusiast and follows car new (and for some reason now we need to make sure car enthusiast is defined distinctly from Tesla enthusiast or electric car enthusiast) can see Tesla's "lies" are pretty egregious and unprecedented in modern cars and often on par with Fords Lies about the Pinto. The most prominent but not the worst is the buggy mess that is "full self driving" that has put real world people at risk in both Tesla owners who don't know that it is not full self driving but treat it as such, because of the name, and the pedestrians and other motorists the Elon is endangering by using them as unwitting test mules in his Beta. Full self driving causes more anger among enthusiasts then anything else I have seen of late as far as industry lies go. Part of it is because virtually all major traditional auto makers do all of this testing on closed loops and don't endanger anyone.
    Another that comes to mind is what the Federal Government is investigating Tesla for as illegal business activity when it comes to issuing Lemon Law refunds to those who pay with Bitcoin. Tesla has included a bit of fine print that says they will pay you back in what ever currency is of lower value. Which is where the illegalness comes in. The way most laws are written is that the full dollar value of the vehicle or the full sales price must be refunded with a set deduction for mileage. (in dollars btw) But you cant pay less then what the vehicle was sold for minus the deduction. However with Tesla's refund practiced if Bitcoin has lets say lost 1/3 of its value, they will pay you back in bitcoin, and if it has gained value they pay you back in Dollar equivalent. So you may be in a position where on 2/3 of the price of the vehicle was refunded because they paid in bitcoin, (and remember the value is calculated in dollars) which is where it is illegal.
    I could go on and on about Tesla refusing to issue safety recalls until forced by the government, illegally ignoring required warranty service and the Moss Magnusson act. and getting sued by a number of states, and their constant violations of right to repair laws, as well as their illegal disabling of features (heated seats to the ability to charge) of second hand sold cars which is currently working its way through the court system.
    Oh and don't get me started on the violations of regulations and traffic laws allowed by stupid shit like "assertive mode" and changing your horn sounds, just to generate headlines.
    Oh and when Elon personally canceled some dude's tesla preorder, because he got into a twitter fight with, and didn't refund the deposit.

    The 1-inch sensor thing is, I think, harmless. The reason being that people don't actually care about the physical size of the sensor itself, but rather the images it produces. Would a sensor that is actually 1-inch in some dimension produce better images? Yes, of course, but that sensor wouldn't be called a 1-inch sensor it would be called something bigger, the only people who care about the actual physical dimensions of the sensor are engineers designing and building electronics.

    One good example that comes to my mind are the units used for measuring data transfer and storage. There's connection speed which is measured in Mbps as opposed to what we would actually like to know: MBps. I have seen many people get confused when they only receive about an eighth of advertised speed. Another one is when storage devices like hard disk advertise 1TB of storage but we get only about 930GB of usable space because of how the hard disk companies calculate TB (1TB=1000GB) vs how our devices do. (1TB=1024GB)

    Really interesting. Always wondered about the electric car torque numbers. Well done!

      @G. Reaper so it's clearly not our fault for it to be confusing as a battery pack isnt even a battery pack 💀 if it doesn't contain batteries 😑 and why is there a difference in battery and battery pack if a battery pack is a single battery

      @Muriël Veneman and a battery pack is comprised of indivdual cells, just like a battery. 18650 is simply a specific form factor of a cell. It is not a battery.
      Cell: a single unit that contains a electrolytic solution to generate electricity. Examples include AA, AAA, C, D, and 18650 cells, commonly incorrectly called batteries.
      Battery: A single unit that contain multiple cells, which commonly cannot be separated from each other. A standard car battery is an example of this.
      Battery Pack: A single unit that is comprised of multiple cells, that can be separated individually, and are called batteries for short. RC/drone battery packs are an example of this.

      @G. Reaper their battery packs basically just are 7000 18650 batteries

    Great video, just a minor point the list shown at 5:05 (and at least one other scene) - I wish this was a linear-scale bar chart showing the difference. In this format you have to sort on your own, which isn't helped by the fact that the Bugatti has a thousands-separator and the Roadster doesn't...therefore making the number 7376 look smaller than 1,180
    sorry I do realize that's insanely nitpicky feedback but figured I'd point it out for suggestion. otherwise, keep on crushing!

    You may also be surprised to learn wood is measured as a 2x4 when its actually like 1.5x3.5 same for all new wood today compared to the old stuff

    I have another one for you, the plaid model s is advertised as having 1020hp at the motors, however someone has just done a 4 wheel dyno that bolts to the axles and not on the tyres and low and behold it has 1102hp at the wheels which equates to about 1300bhp at the crank

      It still has reduction gears as well so the drive train losses are still there but not as bad as having a transmission
