Apple limits third-party browser engine work to EU devices
  • Can they do that? I'd love it, but I don't think they can really force Apple, or any company to do something globally can they? (USB C was probably managed this way because of logistic and pricing matters).

  • streaming or torrenting today vs. 5 years ago
  • Does it have trakt integration or similar equivalent?

    It has a subpar integration, if you care too much about this kind of stuff (getting a whole working multimedia center, and thinkering in general) and have a proper device that can handle Kodi in a lagless manner, I'd say you stick with it.

    If you want a set it and forget it kind of solution and have less sophisticated hardware Stremio + a Debrid provider is golden.

    (My Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019 struggles with Kodi and a Debrid/streaming setup, also is significantly slower than Stremio).

  • Twitter/x.com is now forcing you to disable Firefox's Enhance Tracking Protection.
  • while still being able to use your own DNS/wireguard VPN/proxy...

    Wait, I thought the "downside" of this app was that it used your VPN connection, compared to NextDNS or the built in DNS feature of Android.

    I also use AdAway rooted version and not really looking into changing it, but if you could clarify about this I could happily see it as an alternative :)

  • Video Game Execs Are Ruining Video Games
  • patient gaming is the best way

    I think being a patient gamer makes more sense nowadays (or at least since PS3/PS4 days) than it did before.

    Many games are unfinished, unoptimized or need patches, and all this annoying experience is for the users which I like to call "unpaid beta testers" then when all the needed fixes arrive we can fully enjoy the best experience, at the best price.

  • What drew you to the high seas?
  • Hmm, this is an interesting question, as I live in a 3rd world country it is hard to pinpoint exactly which event drove me to this beautiful world.

    With that said, the first console that we ever had (sis and I) was a PS1, it came with Gran Turismo and DBZ Ultimate Battle 22, I think.

    Anyway, I was probably 6 years old, and my dad took care of chip it (took it to a place, it is common to do that in Mexico) and then I got the pirated games for dirt cheap in flea markets and such, a similar event happened with the PS2.

    But when I truly sailed the seas for myself, at least in a gaming scenario, happened when I got my Nintendo DS phat, I quickly knew about a R4, and managed myself to find ROM sites, homebrew, heck I used to use Windows Live Messenger in that little thing lol (DS Lite at that time).

    I mean, I pirated software for PC and possibly burned some games for the PS1/PS2 before having the DS, but having unlimited portable fun with the DS (and then the PSP) was when I turned into a no return point.

  • It’s always with my best shirts
  • Hmm, this is kinda funny to me, where I live we usually don't have or don't use dryers, we have "ropes" where we hang all the clothes, laundry is usually done at weekends and the clothes can stay there all day if needed (which most likely don't).

    I mean, we have a freaking imponent sun right now, we better use it (36 Celsius right now).

  • Nintendo Switch hacked to run Windows 11 on Arm, and it's just about as awful as you can imagine
  • Safe values will hardly make any significant temps increase, and still give you a better experience.

    What is wrong with the OLED version BTW?

    I have the original Switch and that thing can be hacked with a paperclip lol and after many years of usage and OC my battery and unit still performs well, according to some homebrew tools the battery is like at 90% of its lifespan, granted most of its usage is docked, but the "additional heat" is there yet.

  • Nintendo Switch hacked to run Windows 11 on Arm, and it's just about as awful as you can imagine
  • The performance is adequate for the typical Nintendo games but you can’t tell me the recent pokemon games or Zelda TodK run great, barely hitting 30fps.

    I think you might know this, but a hacked Switch can be overclocked (to both safe and unsafe values) and you can pretty much fix most of the bad performing games (you can't fix ass broken games such as Batman Arkham Knight though).

    So yeah, still many games will look and behave better somewhere else, but OC the Switch can lead you to good results, if you have any over there and wanna give it a try (newer models require hardmod, which sucks, but once this annoyance is sorted out, a new true era will begin for the Switch lol).

  • iPad Pro with M4 chip boasts impressive performance jump compared to just-released M3 MacBook Air
  • It is, but it would be like saying Android is just another Linux variant.

    What I want to stress in my initial comment is that the OS is so heavily modified and focused on optimization and RAM management, that it can't hardly work for power users when multitasking is on the board.

    Interesting that they ranked Phantom Hourglass as number 1, nowadays it is considered one of the worst Zelda games... And I don't agree at all.

    PSA you can use Scaled and Controversial sort types in Sync for Lemmy even if it hasn't been integrated in the app if you set them as your default sort type in the web page settings.

    Hi, as soon as I noticed this was a thing I headed to this community to let anyone else know that you can use the newest sort types in the Sync for Lemmy app with that nice workaround... But I just found a lot of "Sink and Sync threads" here that I actually thought the sort bugged my app/feed lol, what a good timing.

    Anyway I hope this is useful for you guys until the new update arrives... Soon ^TM

    It kinda sucks that my favorite format, handheld is so low compared with the other hardware (yeah, I'm not considering mobile as handheld lol).

    Is Lemm.ee a bit slow for you guys?

    I have been noticing it taking longer loads times since today...

    Tested using Sync for Lemmy mostly, but also happened with Voyager.

    Is anyone experiencing this high background usage with Sync?

    3 hours in the background seems a lot to me.

    I started the app clean and configured it from the start (it was a pain in the ass because I migrated my settings from Sync for Reddit lol) and the issue still remains, having this huge background usage prevents my phone from going to deep sleep properly which lends to a bigger battery drain.

    EDIT: BTW the issue is gone when I set the app to restricted battery mode instead of optimized... But I'd rather keep it in optimized as it closes less often in the background, that is how I had it with Sync for Reddit, which on average its active background was several minutes only.

    EDIT 2:

    This is the process that Battery Guru/BBS says shows

    Are there any people who hates music?

    I'm not saying particular genres, we all have our less desired musical genres, I mean music in general.

    When I was a child I was very confident to say that I hated music, all kinds, and my cousin used to say that was not possible.

    Turns out he was right, and I only hated the teenage music my sister from the 90s used to listen to.

    Secretly I enjoyed soundtracks and OSTs from several media, such as animes (digimon openings and battle themes for example) and some TV shows or even videogames.

    Then my taste "evolved" and pretty much stayed at rock, heavy metal and alike.

    So that little memory lane inspired me to ask about this.

    Join us on the Jump Ultimate Stars Discord if you'd like to try out this fantastic Super Smash Bros-like game for the Nintendo DS!
    discord.com Join the JUMP Ultimate Stars (Wiimmfi) Discord Server!

    Check out the JUMP Ultimate Stars (Wiimmfi) community on Discord - hang out with 365 other members and enjoy free voice and text chat.

    !

    Jump Ultimate Stars was a very popular game (overall in Japan) thanks to its big roaster, game mechanics and combos potential.

    Maybe it went under the radar from some people because it never got out of Japan... but many people got it from different ways... (It also helped that the DS is retrocompatible).

    Currently it is possible to play this again thanks to Wiimmfi (yeah, shocking Nintendo ending official servers right guys?).

    Anyway our discord is getting pretty active as of lately, and the server not needing to patch the ROMs (you can play with original hardware) and some emulators like MelonDS being able to interact with original hardware makes it widely easier to play this day.

    Here I share some YouTube accounts where you can see how we play this game:

    If you want to give it a go be sure to join us in the Discord, or perhaps you are not interested in playing with others, if that is the case you can enjoy the main campaign as many folks find it very good too and talk about it there!

    Brought my Chromecast with Google TV to a Hotel, TV is framed.

    Fuck my prior preparation day with the Chromecast with Google TV before the hotel checking....

    I don't travel too often so my Chromecast needed some tweaking (AKA updating system and apps etc), I like to take it as a travel companion and found out this shitty frame around the TV.

    It is the first time it happened to me, I can see this being annoying for frequent travelers.
