Why do car repair shops always assume you can leave while they work on your car?
  • Businesses that can get by on convenience, natural visibility, and first-time clients alone don't need to have good quality.

    Businesses that are inconvenient to reach will die quickly unless they have something else (i.e. price or quality) to make up for the inconvenience.

  • Should half naked pictures of anime characters be marked NSFW on Lemmy?
  • It's not belittling anyone. It's about having an actual line and not making NSFW into a meaningless term.

    Seriously, if you define "NSFW" as anything ANYONE won't want to be caught doing at work, all of Lemmy is NSFW. Your personal definition of "I might get embarrassed by it" is equally meaningless and, again, would result in the entire website simply labeling everything NSFW.

    Oh, what if I work in a conservative workplace and don't want to get caught browsing a liberal sub? Guess everything liberal or left leaning is NSFW!

    Oh wait, I'd be embarrassed by people knowing I have relationship problems, so any relationship advice is now NSFW.

    I don't want my co-workers to think I'm a dumbass, so anything like NoStupidQuestions or ELI5 is also inherently NSFW.

    You want to broaden the NSFW term to the point of being meaningless, and have everyone else moderate their posts to your ill-defined benefit. It's so meaningless that the tag may as well not exist at that point.

  • Should half naked pictures of anime characters be marked NSFW on Lemmy?
  • That's a you problem, not a content problem, though.

    Are we obligated to mark SpongeBob SquarePants as NSFW because you're worried co-workers are going to be judgemental if they caught you watching it at work?

  • NASA and Boeing say Starliner astronauts ‘are not stranded,’ but will be on the ISS for a few more weeks
  • Lol. People want Boeing to fail, because they're corrupt, lying, poorly engineered pieces of shit riding on bribed politicians. They've already deliberately caused the deaths of hundreds of people due to willful and deliberate negligence to save a buck.

    Nobody's wanting the astronauts to die. And they won't, they're safe on the space station, and there are multiple options to get them home safe even if they have to abandon the POS Starliner to do it.

  • Begging for all the Lemmy Audiophiles recommendations on computer speakers!
  • Honestly just keep your old ones.

    Speaker technology hasn't exactly advanced by leaps and bounds like graphics. The greatest innovations have mainly been adding RGB lights and manufacturing then more cheaply.

  • Are you going to need an unlimited data plan to use The 8 Pro's Video Boost feature?

    From my understanding, the P8P's video boost can't be done in the phone itself, but it's actually uploading the video to Google's servers, processing it there, then downloading the finished product back again. In fact, it probably uploads two videos, one at high ISO and one at low ISO to get the full HDR range.

    For anyone who wants to take lots of videos, this sounds like it'll blow through your data caps very quickly.

    Leaked prices: Pixel 8 $699, 8 Pro at $899

    Leaked prices: Pixel 8 $699, 8 Pro at $899

    Big jump for the regular 8 but no increase at all for the pro?

    Pixel 8/pro camera features leaked - no main sensor upgrade?

    Looking at the details listed from this leak, it looks like all the previous leaks were wrong. The specs for the main sensor are the same as the P7, the Samsung GN1 sensor.

    Also rumors of the IMX787 ultrawide appear to be incorrect as well, only 48MP instead of 64.

    Still waiting for Canoo to produce a consumer version, but at least they've made the vehicles for NASA. Maybe the publicity from this will help them get enough interest for the initial production and sales?

    I'm guessing it's still a production line test unit, but it seems like the design is finalized and volume production could actually begin by the end of the year

    Can't wait to see more of these. I hope that Rivian eventually makes an RV/camper version of this, it would go well with their adventure vehicle branding
