I really like that digital foundry spent 30 minutes dissecting a 90 second GTA trailer. "As you can see from the reflection in the puddle underneath the florida man grabbing his crotch..."

Tired: make your password "I committed murder" so the fifth amendment protects you from revealing it.

Wired: make your password "rigged election" to force liberals to confess to their crimes.

Or just tether your phone, whatevs.

Got an unexpected email that my recent credit card purchase qualifies for "easy pay" which is somewhat alarming because usually that's for large purchases, and I couldn't remember anything, but it turns out to be just a magazine renewal. Nah, I think I can handle this in one payment.

The things one finds in the elevator.

1. Pine needles.

2. A print out of the Philadelphia fire code, section F-806.1.1 Restricted occupancies. "Natural cut trees shall be prohibited in all buildings."

@pony I guess? I've never used bluetooth tethering because it's always a pain to connect, and it usually involves weird stuff like phone calls being redirected to the laptop, or contacts syncing, or who even knows. I just want the network part, please.

I didn't ask to pair the MacBook and iPhone, they just seem to know about each other. I think google devices can do the same, but haven't experienced it.

You know, if this keyboard had been designed by a real engineer, the little dot that indicates caps lock is on wouldn't let the backlight bleed through it.

Apple fudged their photo here to hide the dot.

Anecdotally, it seems tethering the MacBook to the iPhone is much more sparing of iPhone battery than other laptops. Not sure if reality distortion field or if they're actually switching the radios to a lower power mode.

(As I type this, it occurs to me that maybe it's using bluetooth instead of wifi?)

lol, AMD CPU refresh drops clock speeds for the same segment number. This will be popular with the forum dwellers after a year of screeching about Nvidia and Apple downgrading products.

The number of Android users complaining about iPhone users complaining about green bubbles is easily 100x the number of iPhone users complaining about green bubbles. I've never actually seen a green bubble complaint, only whining about some mysterious other, just out of frame, who has made such a complaint.

All I want for Christmas is to import my Skyrim character into Starfield.

Should have called it Cyberpunk 2177.

Apple should make a laptop with a notch on the bottom, too, for the dock.

Ran go get -u and committed the result. Do a million eyeballs really need to inspect these dependencies for problems? I think 999,998 review balls will be sufficient.

@evan I think it would be very helpful to follow a Note to receive updates and replies. Even, or especially, in cases where I'm not interested in following everything the author does.

I imagine this working as looking up the note's attributedTo actor, then sending the Follow to their inbox. I'm not sure if that's technically wrong in some sense, but it worked for me.

I diffused a stable on the MacBook, and now it's using swap!

Tesla says an add-on “range extender” could increase Cybertruck range to 470 miles or more.

Oh, man, I remember the days when you could install a RAM doubler on your PC and just like that, 2MB is now 4MB.

I've decided to replace the word salad with salat. It's got a much crisper sound.

I hope there's a full FDA and CDC investigation into the woman who vomited at her wedding because somebody took her picture with an iPhone. Sounds dangerous!

"If you're so smart, how would you organize this 4000 line css file?"

I would simply not have 4000 lines of css to style a button.

"We suggest at least one USB-C Expansion Card to charge the laptop."

If any other laptop vendor charged extra for a charging port, people would lose their goddamn minds.

lol, credit card denied my Ars Technica subscription as being fraudulent.

Bought a USB-C portable monitor because the cyber sale capitalism gods commanded it. The quality is quite good. A few years ago I would have been in awe of this thing. The screen size is also ridiculous (16") which is much bigger than my laptop, but that's what they had. It's also exceptionally light (without the janky pleather cover stand, which weighs more than the screen). I do wish the stand was a bit more solid, instead of the floppy cover. It's the HONGO 2.5K.
