Tech company lies exist on a spectrum. How far is too far?

The 1" sensor doesn't reallyt matter, as long as it's relatively correct. We don't think of a globally ideal sensor size and then search to buy it. We see one camera (e.g. Red) and wanna see in comparison how good another one is. As long as they all make the same "mistake". it cancles out

Reminds me of a story from years ago when 1gb thumb drives were still the largest sized around. Met a dude who said he went to China and found Chinese brand 4gb thumb drives! So he bought a bunch to give out to his colleagues. Then the colleagues started asking why did their drives only have 1gb capacity. Apparently the brand was called "4 GB", but the capacity itself was only 1gb. Hahahahaha technically they weren't lying.

And most lies live on due to human stupidity, to have supper fast cars with super strong engines is just silly and pointless for most folk will never use it, but to brag about it is what we want, so big numbers is what sell, best way to understand this is by megapixel, like my phone 12mp but the quality is crap, but I never edit photos I take with my phone and I often display the images on a screen that's is not even 6 mp. So we want those lies and they sell, so they will not go away until the humans start to smart more 😀

Not just the one-foot rollout, but they used a track covered in a grippy glue designed to aid hard drag launches. Plaid is simply not a sub 2 second car, but it is incredibly fast. I think it's a shame they need to lie to promote something that's incredible in its own right (apart from the stupid yoke).

For me Your video is first on YouTube which is not getting cropped a lot while zoom in to fit on screen and looks 16;9 too Is this is possible while shooting by giving much headroom space ? Or in post production? Which aspect ratios you guys are using 😅

A product planned to come to market is not a lie even if it never comes or even comes to market slightly below spec. Market demand, profitable, and so on... many reasons they don't come to market. Those issues about the camera though and being vague/misleading about technical specs is harmful. There are many people even sharp people who would be duped from those specs. It is false advertising. Tesla definitely skates that fine line... I am more disappointed with those camera specs and substitute photos to be misleading about the capabilities of a camera. This kinda shit. Needs to stop. I wish I could make it my full time job to go after patent trolls and technical spec misrepresentation.

It’s like buying a car that comes with a “spare tire”. It’s not really a spare tire - as that would support having a 5th tire of the set currently on your car - but an emergency use wheel/tire assembly that is good in case your wheel/tire assembly break. Honestly, it’s semantics - not necessarily dishonesty. If an expert testimony can testify for semantics in a space, then it’s legally not misrepresented as a product.

Porsche lowballs their power and speed numbers and gains great respect for their numbers as a result. Tesla is the opposite. It’s the fake it til you make it Silicon Valley mentality. It’s too bad because If they were more honest with their performance stats it would change the conversation from how fake their numbers are to how actually fast they are.

If you were to film a follow up, you could explore F-stop vs T-stop. How two companies F2.8 isn't the same (can be as much as a stop different in extreme cases) but a T-stop is a more universal and accurate measurement, hence why it's used in Film and TV.

11:24 why do they showing an icon representing the size in diagonal if it is not 1” diagonal? That’s a lie then. I might be wrong, feel free to correct me.

Companies lie and a lot of the lies aren't illegal. I'm with Verizon for my phone service and they are the best. T-Mobile commercials though make it sound like they're the best by saying (we have the biggest 5G network). People hear that and think T-Mobie has better coverage than Verizon, but even though T-Mobile may have the biggest 5G network, Verizon has the best coverage with their 4G network. So here in So Cal the overall coverage of Verizon is better than T-Mobile, call wise and internet coverage even though Verizon's higher coverage is with 4G. So T-Mobile doesn't lie, but they just omit that their 5G coverage ven though it covers more of the US than Verizon is still way weaker than Verizons 4G. Companies do this all the time on commercials or to your face and it's immoral but unfortunately not illegal.
