IBM, dominance, and big tech · OSNews https://www.osnews.com/story/133713/ibm-dominance-and-big-tech/
Recently, I was contacted by #Apple ahead of an appointment at the “genius” bar. At the end of the conversation I asked where exactly the store was located and the rep was like: you can easily find it on Google Maps…
“Apple may be looking to make a less expensive big phone in 2022”
Whereas what I want from them is to make a more expensive (or at least more fully-featured) small phone…
Dear #Apple, please think of me for the next product line updates. I’d like:
• an iPhone Pro mini. In purple
• an Xserve M1
• a Wi-Fi 6 router
• a Mac Pro Cube
• macOS for iPad Pro
• modern HyperCard
Aus taktischen Gründen will der Bund sehr relevante Fragen zu den technischen Standards der #eID erst per Verordnung regeln: Interoperabilität, Haftungsfragen oder das Sicherheitsniveau für verschiedene Anwendungen sind für die Stimmbevölkerung unklar.
I created a #Signal sticker pack from the Little White Lies’ Movie Memory Game (https://www.laurenceking.com/us/product/the-little-white-lies-movie-memory-game/)
Call me old-fashioned but when I subscribe to anyone or anything, I do so using #RSS feeds or not at all.
So #Plex is testing support for HDR tone mapping: https://support.plex.tv/articles/hdr-to-sdr-tone-mapping/. That’s nice!
But I’ve been waiting for support for #3D-MVC (e.g. for use with Plex VR) for much longer (and that’s much older technology).
DRM is such a shitshow. https://www.reddit.com/r/netflix/comments/jq9wdb/netflix_capped_at_166mbps480p/
Star Trek Discovery S03E04, light spoilers
Forget Me Not was first ever Star Trek #Discovery episode that scratched my Star Trek itch. And yet there were so many weird continuity mistakes I was left scratching my head. It seems like art department had all collectively watched DS9’s Equilibrium but the writers hadn’t. Or else they would have known that “nearly half [trill] population is capable of being joined”…
