It fits with what BernerBraun does and what we're seeing on Tested now. (As an aside...does anyone think that either Adam or Jamie even know who the hell Will or Norm even are, or that they knew Tested.com was a thing before this whole deal happened? After seeing the site launch yesterday I suddenly understand where all of this is going. Sorry, Wil, but I don't buy any of that. @forkboy: I like the idea of the Tested guys and the Mythbusters guys "working together" too - but I doubt that's going to be the case. Plus, the surprising things we learned from iFixit's AirPods Max teardown, and the return of a Moment of Science! I hate admitting that as I'm a natural pessimist, but I just think the negative spin on all this is past the point of absurdity. I also think Will & Norm are very dazzled by this new celebrities and not seeing the big picture here. Yeah, your'e right. @ Will or @Norm - Social Network integration Created by Leekspin on March 15, 2012, ... it can be turned off in your user account settings but I'm not always logged in at work or at home and its just really annoying. And if that causes Will and Norm to get shunted into the shadows, fuck everything. I guess people have every right to be cynical when corporations are involved, but still... Jamie and Adam are two very busy dudes, why wouldn't they want two content producing nerds, Will and Norm, to work on the site and then chime in from time to time? A lot of us are pissed because in the video, Jamie and Adam made it seem as if it was "their" new site. TechTV and G4 was the same way. To wrap up the year, we present our annual tradition of sharing our favorite things from the year, including gear tested, tools discovered, and projects completed. I could be wrong, though, as we all could be. It should be a great thing for the site. Sadly, my prediction is that Will and Norm will be relegated to nothing more than staff writer positions and will eventually leave to explore better opportunities, as will most of the existing Tested community. I find Norm annoying. Annoying office jargon has now become the norm at the dinner table as millions of Britons work from home, a new study has revealed. The prospect of this is something I am THRILLED about. Yep, BernanBraun is working with Adam and Jamie on their new show, Unchained Reaction. I wonder what happens when Mythbusters eventually gets cancelled. A lot of the supporters of this merge are just like "OMG JAMIE AND ADAM!! It sucks to just have to wait and see. I like Tested. Rather, it just creates anxiety in people that would not normally be as anxious or worried. Which, of course, is natural: those guys are TV stars and have bigger things to worry about than content for a website, but that website happened to be the site we read and loved for years. ---------------------------------------------------------------------. I think that is kind of my issue. By John Phillips Jamie and Adam aren't just TV personalities. The Mythbusters already got their pictures up, so why the naming? Would recommend Tested to anyone, particularly the videos hosted by only Adam. http://www.tested.com/forums/general-discussion/topics/43269-please-everyone-take-a-breath/?p=28, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. Norman Montgommery Chan was born on August 23, 1984, just moments after his parents stepped off a Chinese junk that sailed from Hong Kong and beached on the rocky shores of the Lincoln Park Golf Course in San Francisco. (not saying that this thread did this but most of the new posts on the forums of all the sites have generally been doomsday posts). (If we want to keep this metaphor rolling, he could provide me with proof I'm colorblind (i.e some actual content) and then maybe I'll start believing him.). Well, whatever happens - I just hope for the best. Tested was Will & Norm's baby. It is very selfish of them to do this quickly like this. We want you to stay active.". Seems to me that Will and Norm were just starstruck by the idea of working with them. Psychological testing - Psychological testing - Test norms: Test norms consist of data that make it possible to determine the relative standing of an individual who has taken a test. What does the Mythbuster show have to do with tested? The way that video was presented was just terrible, I really couldn't believe it. They may be genuinely happy, but even if they weren't what would they say? The Mythbuster guys want to attract their fanbase to the site. Also, yeah, @Mirado: people just eating up what Will's saying without questioning it in the slightest need to understand he's very likely contractually obligated to not fully speak his mind regarding this change. Norm's reviews are always in-depth and very helpful, but one thing he kinda glossed over was the VR image quality. I don't want to be all "the sky is falling" but even if that is the case, it sounds like they're throwing them a bone. After 8 years of recording the podcast, we're refocusing our energies on other Tested projects including the bi-weekly livestreams. Learn more. Adam and Norm have an announcement to make--this will be the final episode of The Adam Savage Project. If they're still employed at Tested a year or two from now, I'll happily eat my words. I like the Mythbusters guys. We were compensated very fairly for our work at Whiskey, but we didn't get paid off, bought out, or anything like that. It strikes me as something that Shelby would do - "Hey, I'll sell you my company, but you have to take care of these guys for at least a little while.". It's not their site. I like the idea of them working together. Norman Chan is one of Tested.com co-founders (along with Will Smith). I wish Will & Norm the best, I'm just too much of a realist for my own good and I'm trying to read between the lines a little. I LOVE MYTHBUSTERS!! Tested was Will & Norm's baby. I took this off of Will's reply from this thread here: http://www.tested.com/forums/general-discussion/topics/43269-please-everyone-take-a-breath/?p=28. When Will's talking about how he "hopes" they can sit down with Jamie and Adam to do a podcast or a video where they address the community but that it might not happen because those guys are so busy, it just makes me think that this isn't REALLY Jamie and Adam's website. But sounds like that show is still loved so yeh. They are the community that made site popular. If Will and Norm are still a part of Tested in a year I'll be pretty surprised. I think they're genuinely happy, working with the Mythbusters is a huge deal for them.. but they've lost their site in the process. If I was Will or Norm I think I'd want to cry right now, I … Their site was stolen. I posted over in the original thread for the announcement video that I didn't understand the orgasmic response to having the Mythbusters on the site. Neither has Norm's. I don't think people are reading too much into the video and home page redesign of Tested too much at all. I'm not saying that W&N are getting tossed out in the street, but that's a bit of a big focus shift, now isn't it? However we, on the outside, see it clear as diamond... Yeah, everything is clearly not going to be fine, or the same, and I don't think things are going to turn out quite as well as Will is saying they will. "Hey, you guys can stay on, but you just post some news to fill in the non A&J gaps? That's only assuming Jamie and Adam's company won't just use Will and Norm until they are done with them and then toss them away like wadded tissues. I can verify that you aren't third in line for the throne in Denmark. Yes, they're saying everything will continue as normal, but just how long will that last? That's the thing from Tested for me. I expect that they will go off and either work for another company or start their own thing again (either together or otherwise) when it truly becomes Jamie and Adam's Tested just like those two are already saying. Think! We don't know any of the background facts yet and most of our fears and worries stem from pure speculation. It was like..."Hey, this is Jamie and Adam and we have an awesome new website, we guess! Kinda worrying, eh? Will and Norm can rationalize it all they want, they got hornswoggled in my view. After watching the video, I was left with the impression that a producer shoved a camera in their faces and told them to record something and that was the first they had ever even heard of their "new website." But what if they don't toss Will and Norm away? It seems more like PR and less like "tell it like it is" to me. he said that will had them say that, so the new people who are coming in who only know jamie and adam stay and become fans. Really rubbed me the wrong way. Why not just start up something with your own people in that case? And "We were really short on time so we wrote that it's Jamie and Adam's website" is a really weak excuse. I LOVE MYTHBUSTERS!! Sure shadows and textures will look good, but far distance visibility is kinda up in the air right now. That's the whole fucking point behind all of this: they needed their own website that lets them talk about non-Mythbusters related topics and shows, here's a tech site that's running on the platform that we just purchased, so just drag and drop. Whose faces are the top of the site? I mean, there's plenty room up there for them. I feel like people need to chill out. Meh. Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Knight Lighter! Norm might have a twin. I don't think Jamie and Adam knew what Tested was before their involvement, and I doubt they have any sort of grasp (and probably don't care) about the drastic changes the site and it's users are currently going through.
