  • Life support for a monster set aside as insurance against the day that the monster needs it.

    Agreed entirely, Mozilla doing nothing would be far preferable to me here then them helping extend our current experience with advertising by working towards a future with a minimal set of meaningless concessions that Meta's involvement with suggests would not meaningfully negatively impact their business in any way.

    To my mind, fixing advertising means making advertising a much less lucrative business. Doing anything else is only making the already dire problem worse.

  • Z Fold 6
  • I don't disagree with your point, I just bristle against it given what I have had in the past.

    I'd rather live back in the world where expensive phones didn't necessarily require a case. Glass backs suck. It hurts to hold my phone to my ear for long conversations (fold5), and this one is actually better that most recent phones I've had.

    Now, the bamboo back of the moto X 2013... Man, best phone I ever had, bar none. Admittedly, that phone in particular had a curved back that worked wonderfully for hand feel, so maybe my problem with a wobbly back phone is more that it doesn't really provide a benefit for it to be designed with bumpy cameras just to have a "ultra thin!!!!! (*Excluding cameras)" do-nothing selling point.

    Extend the back so that the cameras are flush and fill the extra millimeters with battery, or make it curved to fit the hand more comfortably, but a camera bump for the sake of fake thinness just feels absurd to me.

    They made phones more fragile to allow for more stylish case designs that making them more fragile necessitated. It's maddening to me.

  • New IMAX poster for "Deadpool & Wolverine"
  • Oh, I very much enjoyed Loki, I guess I just wasn't expecting to see a reference in this movie poster for some reason.

    Edit: considering the material, it very well could be the Tennessee Valley Authority though.

  • New Sentinel nuclear warhead program is 81% over budget. But Pentagon says it must go forward
  • They have devices in them that break over time as all devices do, and those devices have parts and designs that were contemporary before the people working on them today were alive likely with architectural and design decisions that were operationally required back when things were being drafted that no longer make sense to do today. Likely the nuclear materials will be reused, but that's me thinking with my brainbox and not actually a thing I know.

    For an example of what happens when we continue to rely on tech that really deserves to be updated and/or replaced, see the United States banking sector as compared to basically everywhere else.

  • Announcing the Ladybird Browser Initiative
  • Depending on your use case, maybe you should. If your use case is "using the internet today securely", then you definitely should.

    I'm not trying to create a logical puzzle that teasing the right details out of will solve, I'm not even advocating for or against their decision, discord fuckin sucks shit and I can't wait for element to continue to mature towards enough feature parity that a switch is seamless so that I can actually convince my friends to switch too, I'm reporting a reality of life on the internet today.

  • Announcing the Ladybird Browser Initiative
  • As someone who uses BSD licensed modified code at work and relies on it quite a lot, it's crucial to me choosing which projects I'm able to use in the first place.

    Personally, I prefer a license that allows for commercial use in the way that companies need them to, and if my own work ever can provide a patch back upstream I'd be happy to do so, but most of what I do is just tweaking things that exist to suit my purposes which doesn't really help anyone but my business rivals which I personally am not interested in doing if I don't have to.

    I prefer to have the freedom to do as I wish with the code, as compared to being bound to do as the author wishes and essentially just not using that code in the first place because I can't. I'm not in a position to change what I can and can't do because of the requirements of the business I work for, and I'm grateful to those that choose licenses that allow me to use their work.

    They're creating a new browser because they want to. It started as an OS building project that the lead dev did to help stay sober.

    They use discord because it's popular. Insert Ouroborus argument here, and at the end of the day it's still the most popular app.
