@tapi yeah, if you really just need one I think Apple replaces it for $50 (in the US anyway).

@tapi mine last about 20 minutes. I’ve had to stop using them but am not ready to replace them until the new ones come out.

have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?

simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!

because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!

check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

@JPEG are you still working on timeline positioning during updates? Really hard to focus and continue reading when the list jumps when new posts load. Also still sometimes jumps way ahead in the timeline.

If anyone could use remote contract or p/t help with content strategy, copywriting, a company blog, social media, or documentation, please hit me up. I specialize in tech and distilling complex stuff for regular folks, and I have experience writing for myriad voices and audiences.

@Berserkhippo ah, yeah, that’s specifically a deal in the iOS App Store only. Good deal.

@Berserkhippo not sure what you’re referring to. We’ve had 1Password for Business (which used to be called Teams) for over a year now. 1password.com/business/

AeroMexico, the country's largest airline, is trolling racist Americans with its latest commercial and IT IS HILARIOUS.

Trust me. I mean, you probably don't know me from any sufficiently self-aware AI, but... just try to get through it to the payoff.


That's over about 8 years time since the first project I backed fwiw.

Wowza, just backed my 100th Kickstarter project. Six failed to deliver but were relatively inexpensive. I'm also waiting on a couple that are now about a year late but still show progress. I think that's a pretty good track record and I really enjoy seeing behind the scenes on this stuff.

You very much have to go into it with certain expectations. Always research and get a feel for the creators, add ~2x the time for delivery estimates, and remember you're backing an idea, not buying a product.

Has anyone seen a good review/comparison of 3.5mm to 3.5mm headphone cables with inline mics and controls? Would love to find one with a high quality mic.

@pragmaticcode would love to see Linky for Mac! Would make a really nice menu bar app as well as in the OS share menu.

@JPEG happy to help and looking forward to the update to reverse the load more position! (notice me sneaking in my own pet feature request in a Toot instead of a store review 😉)

@JPEG fwiw I just went and gave it another 5 star to help counteract that. Really want to see you keep pushing it forward and happy about working on it!

@chartier shoptagr.com is really close but it only supports specific websites. It supports a lot of sites but I like a lot of indie stuff and need a way to add absolutely anything even if I have to manually enter thumbnail, price, and link for some things.

@chartier @ukhaiku also I really want the preview to just be of the thing, not the whole web page.
