The only pragmatic option for any hopeful contender challenging the Android—iOS duopoly is to bet on the Web.

You might say, “I don’t need official apps. Those services have public APIs and I can build a Linux client.” Except for Twitter, I haven’t used a third-party app better than the official app. And many companies—like Fitbit—explicitly prohibit recreation of primary experiences.

I love what Purism is doing with its Librem phone, but I do not believe native Linux apps are a viable strategy. If Microsoft could not convince major app makers to support Windows Phone with its incredible UWP developer experience, I do not have hope for native Linux apps.

I still want a Firefox OS tablet with stylus, like a Surface or iPad Pro, running a Firefox-powered Chrome OS with optional developer mode to run VS Code and related Web dev tools.

People like to complain about Google AMP for good reasons, but have you tried simply not using Google for search? DuckDuckGo answers 95% of my searches effectively these days—and no AMP!

“I thought wasn’t it a good thing that Eve did, isn’t curiosity a valuable quality? Shouldn’t she be praised for risking this? It wasn’t, after all, that she was after money or gold or anything, she was after knowledge. What could possibly be wrong with that?” —Philip Pullman

I can’t wait to visit America in a few weeks to try this ✌️White Claw✌️ the Internet memes have informed me about all summer.

Equifax appears to be trying to get out of its cash settlement offer by requiring additional information long after claims were filed. Check your email.

A friend uses Facebook Messenger. I proposed a restaurant for dinner. Facebook would not let me share the restaurant’s website because it said it violated its community standards. I wonder if it showed something offensive like a woman’s nipple or a terrorist training video at some point. /s

Yo , can you please add the ISO 8601 week number to the Date object? I am kinda surprised it’s not already there.

It’s 2019 and Google Chrome and its bloodline (Edge, Brave, Opera) still do not support SVG favicons. bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/i

OH: "I'm surprised more dads aren't upset about climate change, since I've seen how angry they get when anyone changes the thermostat."

Do you know of an open source alternative to SketchUp? (Blender is not it.) Bonus points for being Web based. All of the iPad apps are monthly subscriptions.
