Why is my Twitter feed full of right-wing content when I don't consume political content?
  • Unfortunately many of these platforms treat a block as an interaction.

    There is no way to ignore these posts without triggering an interaction.

    As others said, it is truly the goal of these sites to make you angry.

  • iPhone users, what's stopping you from switching to Android?
  • I’ve used both for years. iPhone is simply the better device compared to any Android phone I’ve tried, including Pixel and other high end phones.

    iOS is a better OS for me. I’m a software eng, and so I’m able to do all sorts of things to androids, and some things to iOS, but at the end of the day I want my phone to work and that’s it. I don’t tinker in my free time because I tinker all day at work.

    As others have mentioned, the Apple ecosystem is pretty fantastic.

    Finally, I’d rather buy hardware/software from a hardware/software company than an advertising company.

  • ‘The Movement to Convince Biden to Not Run Is Real’
  • Running Kamala would be making the same mistake they made back in 2016. She is polarizing, and extremely unlikeable. Anyone that worked with her or her department when she was in law in CA has nothing but bad things to say about her.

    Running Kamala would be giving Trump a second term.

  • New York’s Fat Beach Day gives plus-size people a space to be themselves
  • And the issue can be spun in many different ways, but it always comes back to a single simple source, overeating.

    That is all there is to it. Not if you can cook or exercise. Not if you buy fancy feasts or a bag of carrots and dip. It is only about overeating.

  • Supreme Court strikes down Trump-era ban on bump stocks, gun accessories used in 2017 Vegas massacre
  • Did the truth ever come out around this shooting? The whole thing seemed very suspicious and the news story seemed to go away pretty quickly compared to other similar events.

    Or I’m an ostrich and just completely missed everything to do with it.

  • What's the dumbest blockbuster movie you have seen that somehow received high praise?
  • And if you watch the matrix today for the first time, everything is cliche and done to death.

    The reason for this is that every single action movie after the matrix has copied it. When it released, it blew people away. No one had seen anything like it. I remember going to see it after an event because of how much people wouldn’t stop talking about it. Even overhyped, I was blown away.

    The Matrix defined action movies for a decade+

  • Microsoft to test “new features and more” for aging, stubbornly popular Windows 10
  • This is it. Everything “just works” on windows. Until that exact same experience is available on Linux it will never take over. And no, I don’t mean “there is an app you can install for a distribution that makes it easy to…”. That is an immediate failure. It needs to be easy to do everything, out of the box, with no additional setup.

    I say this as someone that uses windows, Mac, and various flavors of Linux every single day. I want this for Linux, but it isn’t there.

  • GOP senators warn judge against sentencing Trump to prison
  • He would absolutely not be in a jumpsuit on the side of the road doing community service. He would be assigned 1000 hours and then “work” with a charity putting his “skills” to use.

    I’m speaking from experience. I had 120 hrs of community service and I did computer work for a well known charity.
