vent: #NotEnoguhRAM & ads 

LTT recently launched a video on avoiding 8GB or RAM and going straight 16GB as the new minimum or even 32GB.

What are we doing with so much RAM? The same things as before, but with increasingly fancier webviews instead of native UI elements? Custom proprietary UI language that matches nothing in the system? An unified unblockable ad-viewing framework?

Are we paying better computers so we can see increasingly complex digital pamphlets?
