@cypnk Camera makers really screwed themselves by not putting usable network devices & editing software in the camera, so cell phones with 1mm thick cameras ate their business.
@mdhughes Yup. Prosumer market would have killed to get WiFi, if not Bluetooth and wireless charging. But no. Let's shove them some glass at markup while bumping up megapixels (which, bedsides for marketing) most people don't even notice once they upload it somewhere anyway
Android could have been running on cameras all this time
@cypnk also available in 1993 Tokyo: American pop music from 1988 in the background (I caught “Stop Dragging My Heart Around” and “King of Wishful Thinking”)
@dustin They had some refined tastes ;) Really, I think it's the best balance of being good to listen when focused while also blending well to the background when not
@cypnk Bring back bespoke devices!
There's absolutely value in dedicating a device for a certain purpose - the phone does everything okayish, but I want to see devices shaped by their purpose, not through being applicable to anything.
For one, I would really like to see a dedicated note-taking device for instance, an "org-moder", or one that incorporates the features of the current crop of note-taking software (Roam, Notion, etc.)
@cypnk No way! I'll be following for sure.
I've seriously wanted to hack something like that together too, but mostly I couldn't find a reasonable keyboard to use and designing one from scratch felt a bit too bike-sheddy.
(Maybe it wasn't though?)
A hackable platform sounds really exciting :)
