MKBHD is one of the biggest tech YouTubers on the platform. He expanded into reviewing cars because he saturated the tech field already.

Also, it's a 'back to basics' channel for him,. He shoots only on phones for this channel, tho I dunno if he edits on his big suites. Here is the intro on the first Auto Focus video

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

I knew who it was from the subject line.

I'd seen it when I was looking at some other videos of his, probably the AVP videos.

And your link was purple, so I'd been there before.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

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

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.

While I really like MKBHD, I did not expect to watch the whole review of a car I have no interest in. But that was crazy.

The first 8 minutes had me thinking this car did so many things right; I wondered where he was going with this. But then everything unraveled. So much promise, but so many weird decisions, and a level of bugginess that should scare people. The headline was justified.

I can’t help but wonder what happened to produce such buggy software. Software to car usage has never been particularly good

For the record...

Fiskars is Finnish and makes those scissors.

Fisker is Danish and tries to make cars (see Fisker Karma).

I'd guess the bigger news to me is that he uses a Samsung phone. I thought he was hot on Apple.

MKBHD is the only youtuber i follow. his insights and the quality of his vids are outstanding. not a car person so i don't regularly read AutoFocus but otherwise Marquess is my go-to guy.

This car was actually on my list of candidates for the next purchase. It still seems to me that all of the relevant (to me) issues can be solved through software. Will see by the time I am ready to pull the trigger, right now it seems Ioniq5 or VW ID4 are at the forefront.

Be forewarned that Fisker is a small company and has a poor track record.

Fisker Automotive - "...founded by Henrik Fisker in 2007.... it repeatedly missed production deadlines and production of the Fisker Karma was suspended in November 2012 with about 2,450 Karmas built since 2011 and just over 2,000 cars sold worldwide."

Fisker Inc. - "...founded in 2016...is the successor to Fisker Automotive."

Actually this can be fixed by software. Just disable those buttons when you turn, only enable the buttons when going straight.

The commenters almost all say this is old news and that OTA updates have fixed the problems. I would actually be surprised if what they say isn't true.

My favorite thing about MKBHD is the balance of his reviews, pros and cons presented, and he explains why he likes or dislikes something without saying anyone else should or shouldn't like something.

He doesn't tell me what to buy, only what I might like and dislike about a product.

And aside from a video thumbnail, there's no hysterics, no mugging, no goofball stuff.

A grown up talking to grownups as grownups.

That's a pretty scarce commodity among reviewers.

If you like a good tech discussion, his waveform podcast is a great watch every week. Hell, I like all his channels.
