  • So it's been a while since we've done one of these.

  • It's a question and answer session.

  • I asked over on Twitter a couple days ago, what questions you have for me, and here are

  • a couple of them.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • So the first question is kind of a weird one...unique I should say.

  • 'What is your parents' daily driver?'

  • My dad is currently using the Galaxy Note 9.

  • And then my mom is using the LG G7.

  • I come from kind of a large family.

  • My older sister is using a One Plus 6T.

  • My brother is using a LG V30.

  • And my younger two sisters are both using iPhones.

  • Right.

  • I'm currently using my two year old Galaxy S8.

  • It's still running like a champ.

  • I'm probably going to keep on using it for a while, I don't really see a need to upgrade.

  • But that might change.

  • Who knows.

  • Two years into the phone...might be time for another one.

  • We'll see what happens.

  • 'What is a recent tech product you regret buying?'

  • So I have a good one.

  • It happened relatively recently.

  • So I ride motorcycles.

  • I've had a bike ever since I was 16.

  • I've been riding for a very long time.

  • And recently I saw an ad for a smart helmet that costs $1,800.00.

  • I was like, alright, the commercial looks good, I'm going to buy it.

  • $1,800.00n later it finally gets here, and it is a complete piece of junk.

  • I am planning on making a full review video about it as soon as the snow melts.

  • But it is an absolute terrible product, and it costs $1,800.00.

  • So I have quite a few things I want to say about it.

  • It's kind of like, you know, just to understand the concept, it's kind of like Google Glass

  • back in 2013....but worse.

  • So buckle up for that video.

  • It's a waste of $1,800.00.

  • 'What phones are you most looking forward to tearing apart in 2019?'

  • And I think we all know the answer to this.

  • Samsung just announced a foldable phone with a very unique hinge system between the two

  • halves.

  • So I'm excited to see how that works.

  • The jury is still out on whether we'll see the insides of the phone during the durability

  • test or during the teardown, but either way, we're going to see the insides of it.

  • 'What is your viewership distribution with different countries?'

  • I think I've gotten this question before, but it's always interesting to see, you know,

  • where traffic is coming from all over YouTube.

  • You know, it's a worldwide platform.

  • And my audience currently is 24% from the United States, 14% from India, and then we

  • have 7% from the UK.

  • And then Indonesia, Philippines, and Canada are right behind them.

  • I do have 10 views from someone over in Liechtenstein in the last 30 days.

  • So...I see you over there!

  • Hope you enjoyed.

  • Thanks for watching!

  • And my female demographics have improved slightly.

  • I'm now at 8%.

  • Probably a little thanks to Cambry on that one.

  • I think most people interested in tech or repairing things usually happen to be males.

  • 'How many times has someone recognized you in public as Zack, the YouTuber?'

  • So I don't get recognized very often as Zack.

  • Usually people think my name is Jerry.

  • I did a different question and answer video about why I chose the name JerryRigEverything

  • for my channel, so I'll link that so you can see what happens there.

  • But usually people are like, 'Oh hey, you're that Jerry...Jerry...You're Jerry!'

  • And I'm like, yeah, I am, and we just kind of roll with it.

  • But I would say, usually when I'm out in public, like maybe 30% of the time, whether I'm at

  • the movies or eating out, someone will stop by and say hi, which I super appreciate.

  • It's always fun to meet someone who likes watching my stuff.

  • 'Do you like pineapple on pizza?'

  • Yes, it's probably my favorite topping.

  • You know, the Hawaiian pizza when you get Canadian bacon and pineapple on there.

  • So good.

  • 'I found your Tacoma videos pretty good.

  • Will you make more in the future?'

  • And yes, I will.

  • Vehicles and, you know, electric vehicles I feel like are the future and I plan on doing

  • more in-depth videos about those, including electric trucks in the future.

  • But I have done a lot of modifications done to the Tacoma that I bought last year.

  • And those are on my second YouTube channel called ZacksJerryRig.

  • Things are quite a bit more chill over there, and that's how we like it.

  • So if you want to see, you know, some of the side projects and things that I've done to

  • my truck...ZacksJerryRig.

  • 'Have you pre-ordered an electric car?'

  • And yes, I have.

  • I have given my refundable thousand dollar deposit on the Rivian electric truck, which

  • should be shipping in 2020.

  • And the specs on this thing and the price are pretty incredible, you know, for what

  • you....you get a lot for what you pay for.

  • Amazon as well just dropped seven hundred million dollars into Rivian, which kind of

  • gives it a little bit of a boost.

  • So I'm pretty confident that they're going to hit the 2020 or 2021 delivery date with

  • their trucks.

  • I'm also following a company named Bollinger, which they have a kind of boxy looking electric

  • truck.

  • A little bit slower.

  • Almost the same price, but they're quite a bit behind schedule with their development.

  • So I think it's pretty much just between Tesla and their unannounced electric truck, versus

  • Rivian.

  • And so we'll see which one comes out on top and which one's better.

  • But I probably will be buying whichever first electric truck comes to market, whether it's

  • Rivian or Tesla, it's probably going to be one of those two.

  • Tesla does have the upper hand with their super charging network, but they haven't announced

  • their truck yet.

  • I might make a video more in-depth on the electric trucks that are in production right

  • now, or are planning on being, you know, in production, but that's where we're at right

  • now.

  • We'll see what happens.

  • 'What is the thing that makes you get up in the morning?

  • Elon Musk has Mars.

  • What about you?'

  • So for context, Elon Musk is the guy who kind of started Tesla.

  • He also has his own rocket company, you know, with the main goal of putting people on Mars.

  • And Elon says he does want to die on Mars someday, just not on impact.

  • That's kind of his life goal.

  • So for me though, what gets me up in the mornings...it's kind of always been I like being productive.

  • I like accomplishing things and helping people.

  • And that's kind of like the theme of my YouTube channel for the last 7 years has been tutorials

  • and like projects I'm doing, and ways that I can help people out, you know, through the

  • internet.

  • Lately, ever since I've made that off-road wheelchair video, I've noticed that, you know,

  • the pricing on accessories and off-road chairs for people who are in wheelchairs is ridiculous.

  • Like, you know, for an off-road wheelchair, it can cost anywhere from $10,000, $20,000,

  • $30,000 and that's just like not sustainable or obtainable to anyone.

  • Whether you're in a chair or not, like that is a lot of money to spend on, you know, something

  • that's not a car.

  • So ever since I built the first off-road for, you know, about $3,000 by combining 2 electric

  • bikes, that's always just kind of been in my mind, and I want to make something on a

  • larger scale that's easier to get in and out of, that's accessible to everyone.

  • So that's been something I've been working on a lot lately.

  • Mass producing something in large quantities takes quite a bit of time, but I think we'll

  • have a complete version by this summer in 2019.

  • So I'm pretty excited about that, and I have a couple other projects in the works as well.

  • [Construction sounds]

  • This is like a proof of concept... ha ha, this is sweet!

  • So that's...that's what's getting me out of bed in the mornings lately.

  • 'Would you ever consider using an iPhone as your daily driver?'

  • So, yeah, the last time that I used an iPhone as my daily driver was back in 2011 I think,

  • with the iPhone 4.

  • I used it for a couple months, and then made a huge long list of things that I didn't like

  • about the iPhone, and then switched back to Android.

  • Then in 2016 I decided to give it another chance.

  • I tried it out for a couple months and it wasn't bad.

  • I didn't die, but it also was not my favorite.

  • It kind of had the exact same list of problems that I had with the iPhone 4 back in the day.

  • To like summarize the experience, I feel like I'm paying a lot of money and not getting

  • the return on my investment when I'm using an iPhone.

  • Granted, I was not using the Apple ecosystem.

  • I didn't have, you know, the watch or the AirPods, or the computers.

  • I was just using the phone.

  • And I think the benefit that comes with the Apple ecosystem is when you're using all of

  • it, but also you're paying a lot of money for that, you know, convenience, which just

  • isn't really worth it to me.

  • You know, my two year old Android phone still has more features than some of the recent

  • iPhones and it's just not worth it.

  • You know, whether you pay $500 or $1,000 for your, you know, smartphone that you're using,

  • the majority of people are just going to run, you know, Facebook, Instagram, and you know,

  • browse the Internet.

  • It's still going to make calls and text messages...it doesn't need to cost as much as it's costing.

  • And I think Apple's wallet has been hit with that for the last year or so, and hopefully

  • we see some changes in the future.

  • But yes, I would consider using an iPhone as my daily driver again, but probably for

  • a short period of time before I go right back to Android for the third time.
