Technology is a promising field and has been since time immemorial. It is amazing how innovations keep coming up every other day. When you thought the world is saturated with creations that no man can think beyond the current inventions, something spectacular just comes up. Even with these creations, there are levels of quality, pricing, and many other classification criteria consumers use to settle for a product. The best decisions are made based on concrete information available. One source of this critical data is Linus Tech Tips. The YouTube channel is all about technology and is one of four created and managed by Linus Sebastian.
About the Channel
Linus Tech Tips has about eleven million subscribers. The growing platform has had over 3.6 billion views since its launch in 2007.

What was the inspiration behind the formation of these channels? The founder was a presenter at NCIX between the years 2007 and 2015. At the moment, NCIX is defunct.

This recognition wasn’t a mean feat. It is 2020, and the Linus Tech Tips youtube channel comes fourth in the list of the most-watched tech channels.
