The Internet is becoming genuinely unusable without an ad blocker
  • What’s ironic is that the big players only got the mainstream attention by providing an ad free experience at first.

    Back when Internet was just hitting critical mass, there were paid sites, free sites with ads, and big players. The big players didn’t rely on ads or pay to use their web services. They took money to provide their core service and the website was a “free management tool”.

    Now that they have killed the ad only business model (can’t pay for a website with simple and ignorable ads), and convinced a lot of people you should pay for just digital services, they are finally free to enshitify everything, make people pay for digital only services now that it’s normal, and try to maximize ad revenue. Truly the enshitification model!

  • Unfortunately, Bethesda are the only ones in town who are capitalising on "Bethesda style games".

    I thought a lot of games are like that now. I personally love the fallout universe but hate the game style. Hate now things like horizon zero, Witcher, Elden ring, assassins creed and all those games have slow pace open world with huge RPG elements.

    More like Bethesda game style become an industry standard. That’s my perspective though, im sure those who like the format don’t agree.

  • There has been instances before where LLMs gave up clues as to what source it used. When that happens, they can be sued.

    Im okay with people using our data for whatever, since it’s all open and it should be. But I rather put a little bit of effort to make for profit use technically illegal. It’s better than nothing.

  • Apollo would be proud of both

    They are honestly both good, but can’t beat the native ios experience.
