I still think that Festool have some brilliant tools but things are changing and it is very disappointing that they have chosen to neglect the FOG and, at the same time, disadvantage their long term distributors by dealing with the box shifters who often offer very limited customer service.

Come on Festool - do you really want this?

"Is FestoolUSA putting their tutorials on Instagram instead of YouTube these days?  That might be worth me trying to figure out how to use it."

I hope not, YT is the place for such content I think. Easier to access from various paltforms. I can sit and watch YT videos on my TV using the YouTube app right on the TV. Don't need a computer or smartphone or tablet.

Video can't be searched, making it completely useless as a reference.

Also regarding facebook and similar kinds of brain AIDS: I hope it dies, ideally instantly, as everything endless-scrolling that is optimizing the feed for rage (as that gives more clicks) is a crime against humanity.

You sound a little cranky today  [unsure] but I agree with you  [mad]

Not understanding what you saying here.

Do you mean it's not possible to search within a video, or that it's not possible to search for video on a specific topic.

I can ctrl-F a text (or grep a whole bunch of them in bulk) for keywords to locate relevant sections quickly, skim or cross read it, copy&paste and print the sections I need later, yada yada...

All not possible with video as it's an inherently linear medium. While it has its uses the effective overall bandwidth, in regard to information density, is quite low - at least for me (but I'm a somewhat quick reader).

Just as an FYI, this was announced about an hour ago on Facebook and I just happened to come across it.  Might be interesting for some.

Just a thought but maybe Festool could use the forum as an 'aggregator' of sorts.
Honestly I have neither the time or inclination to go traipsing all across the internet to see if FESTOOL has posted something new somewhere. A post from FESTOOL with a url however would be, in my opinion, GREAT!

Just a "Hey Sedge just dropped a new youtube video" or "check out this latest trick on instagram".

 [2cents]


For clarity: I am not referring to links about Festool, I am referring to things from Festool.

If this were to come about it might benefit from a topic area of it's own.

Yes. And I was thinking a 'lockout' feature like the classifieds have so no one can post there. just a running topic of links.

I totally agree with locking it, there is always that one guy that says something stupid or someone that goes off topic.. good idea
