OWC Vindicated!
Posted by: anonymouse1
Date: January 19, 2021 11:01PM
You may remember that last week I posted about problems Marco Arment was having with getting full ethernet speed from an OWC Thunderbolt dock not reaching full speed, as described in the usually fine Accidental Tech Podcast. [forums.macresource.com]

But the problem was not with the dock, as Marco confesses in the follow podcast: [atp.fm]

Starting about 14 minutes in, we have a FULL CONFESSION from Mr. Arment that indeed, the problem was NOT from the fine OWC dock, but due to something in his wiring.

So props to OWC for having fine products, and to Marco for being willing to own up when he was wrong.

And all's well that ends well.....

FULL CONFESSION?

Sounds like you've been spending waaaay too much time somewhere else.

Or do you have some kind of tech conspiracy theory you'd like to float.




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It’s just a little humor. I thought it was fun!

Most of the popular Podcasters are pretty light on technical skills and quick to jump to conclusions without research or testing. I figured they were wrong in the first place.

Mr Arment is not your typical podcaster: He wrote the excellent Overcast app!

I’m Marco Arment, and I’m a web and iPhone software developer, writer, and podcaster in Westchester county, New York.

I know plenty of programers who couldn't reinstall the OS on their laptop, build a PC, troubleshoot a network issuem, or install Visual Studio to save their lives. Just because he is good with one aspect of computers doesn't make him an expert in all aspects. An Electrical Engineer that can build a laptop PCB isn't going to be able to write a desktop app. Completely different skillset.
