Why is a shoplifting incident at a Trader Joe's for maybe $150 worth of goods national news?

2 years ago, Trader Joe's got slapped with a $1.6 million fine for wage theft, and no one on this show thought it was worth mentioning. twitter.com/TheRevAl/status/14

Google FLoC is dead! Google has decided to scrap FLoC after "a bunch of great feedback from the community, as I’m sure you know" 🥳

blockchain decentralization is fake anyway. it's a datastructure that works SO HARD to create a single unified perspective over a distributed datastore, and the only way they can do this practically is by introducing enormous costs and ridiculous latency. divergent perspectives are an unavoidable part of distributed computing! pretending otherwise is just a part of their scam.

Earlier today, #Microsoft pushed a promotional message to early adopters of #Windows 11. The promo intended to promote the upcoming operating system’s integration with Microsoft Teams.

I never want to hear about ease of use or fragmentation holding any other OS back. Windows obviously isn't keeping it's market share on actual merrits.

a real phrase I just read with my own eyes on the internet "Not only is she risking lives, but also people's ability to graduate? How selfish is that, that's a lot of money on the line."

Some folks priorities have been inverted.
