I don't get to see it often, but I just had to use a browser without an ad-blocker installed. I can't even begin to fathom how people can live without one.

What a horrid, ugly mess the web has become 😫

Ohhhh so it’s okay when you wake me up in the middle of my sleep, but not when I do the same to you?

It’ll do. Not the cleanest win, but it looked really rough there at the start.

User: "I love apps!"

Dev: "Great, here's an app for $5!"

User: "Well I don't love apps *that* much..."

Dev: "Okay, here's an app for free with ads instead!"

User: "Ads are disgusting and immoral."

Dev: "Oh, uh, here's an app for free with in-app purchases and no ads!"

User: "In-App purchases are a cancer that's destroying the industry!"

Dev: "Well I'm out of ideas. No More app."

User: "Damn greedy devs stopped updating the app I paid for 5 years ago!"

What does OLED black smearing look like? In this example, the dark grey square seems to be lagging behind the light grey square, but they’re locked together. (Needs to be viewed on an OLED screen.)

Heh, just tried using the split keyboard mode in iOS 12, and it doesn’t seem to work with any of the fancy new password auto fill stuff. Guess nobody at Apple uses this mode!

Apple CEO Tim Cook calls for Bloomberg to retract their SuperMicro supply chain attack story.

“We turned the company upside down,” Cook said. “Email searches, data center records, financial records, shipment records. We really forensically whipped through the company to dig very deep and each time we came back to the same conclusion: This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.”


When I see a tech writer seriously refer to T-Mobile as “the uncarrier”, I immediately dismiss anything that person has to say about anything, ever.
