I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you don’t need a blockchain to license GIFs or even to host them. NFTs are just a speculation vehicle and closer to subprime mortgages than value creation.

It seems like whatever law the UK wants to pass, every other country should do the exact opposite.

What’s the best iPhone app to do a 3D LiDAR scan of a home interior? I’m moving next week and want to do a scan when it’s empty to help with future remodeling and decorating.

The WebExtensions API standard supported by Firefox and Safari may have started as a copy of Chrome’s extensions API, but it has evolved in more feature rich and thoughtful ways that make developing a Chrome extension frustrating by comparison.

@movonw Apple has done something unique combining the system on a chip and making the OS smartly balance workloads to the appropriate cores. I don’t think we’ll see anything close in open ecosystem within a decade.
