  1. I bet they wanted dental included in their contracts. No one wants to talk about their compensation negotiations.

    Of course product reviews are dangerous as in the US a company can still sue for damages even if their product was proven faulty. You know, potential customer may have loved a flawed product anyway. RFIDs and fingerprint scanners are for convenience and not for safety although that is suggested all too often. Even your wireless car entry system can easily be defeated electronically. Guess also tested is making money from advertising so I hope a bit of truth is retained in the reviews.

  2. I would hope that you’d notice that a lot of people look up to you. Wear a mask. Your family and fans will thank you.

  3. I recall Adam stating that the ending of Mythbusters ment the end of the cooperation with Jamie Hyneman. Still Tested is called “Jamie & Adam Tested”. Would this mean that for tested Jamie and Adam will cooperate together?

  4. Saw this one at SVCC. I hope you post the Going to Mars talk he did with Andy Weir soon. I missed that one.

  5. This was a great video. But I was not every impressed with your “Buffering” joke at the expense of someone who was obviously very nerves. You ran off a fan for a crummy joke! You should apologize.
    You can be better than that Adam! 🙂
