  • On the Mac, I can run MacOS, BSD Unix, and via VMware, Windows and Ubuntu.

    On phone/tablet, I can build an app that works on every mobile device of that class shipped in the last 6 years.

    On Windows and Android, I have to test apps across a massive combination of features, and even then, there are some with strange configurations that will break the app.

  • YouTube looks to be testing server-side ad injection to counter ad blockers
  • After seeing all the edge-AI stuff being shown by Apple at WWDC, I started wondering how long before people created apps that can download video in background, detect ads using AI, and then create a clean, cached version for consumption. Since it's all device-side, there would be no way to detect or block it.

  • A cool guide for job interviews
  • Other things not mentioned that may come up:

    • Describe a time you had to deal with a difficult co-worker. How did you deal with it?
    • Explain a time you disagreed with a decision made by management.
    • How would you deal with a situation where your contributions were overlooked?
    • Was there ever a time you felt things were going in the wrong direction? What did you do?

    On the positive side:

    • What accomplishment were you most proud of?
    • How did you and your colleagues celebrate a success?
    • How would you go about measuring individual vs team success?

    If you are interviewing at a BigCo, they'll also ask indirect questions trying to suss out your 'soft skills.'

  • using GitHub CoPilot leads to the obvious consequence
  • I actually tried letting ChatGPT-4o write some tests the other day.

    Easily 50% of the tests were wrong. They ignored DB uniqueness constrains or even datatypes. In a few cases, they just hallucinated field names that didn't exist.

    I ended up spending just as much time cleaning up the cruft as writing them. I could easily see someone just starting out letting the code go through.

    A gaggle of television camera operators and smartphone-toting residents trained their lenses on San Francisco’s newest public toilet in Noe Valley Town Square on Sunday, where a party was underway celebrating its completion after prolonged controversy.

    Janell Pekkain was tempted to test out the celebrity toilet that made international news for its original $1.7 million price tag, but she demurred, daunted by the media spotlight.

    “I don’t want to be filmed,” Pekkain, 61, said. ...

    Save-by-date coming in Lemmy back-end

    Voyager sure helped the transition for many of us moving off Reddit.

    But one thing that has made it difficult to use is that saved items could only be retrieved in the order of original posting. That meant if you saved an item, then went back to look for it the next day, it wouldn't be there. It could be filed under the original post date which could be days, weeks, or months ago.

    This was apparently a problem with the Lemmy back-end. Well, it appears that has been solved: https://lemmy.ml/comment/9233196

    Hopefully, it'll roll out to servers soon and eventually make it to Voyager. Huge props to the devs!

    PS: one of the last things Apollo added was 'save folders.' I didn't get to use it enough to get hooked on it, but it looked like it was a good way to keep things organized. Even better would have been tagging and smart folders, so items could be saved under multiple categories. Just leaving it here... 😁
