It costs ~$20 in fees to send $100 of USDT‽ Ethereum is garbage.

I’m the proud new owner of a loft with 5m ceilings. Now, how do I install lights in the middle of the room? Are there at-home scaffolding systems or scissor-lifts or just really wide ladders?

Magicplan, Polycam, and Canvas all failed me today. I tried so hard for 2 hours, but the results are not useful.

I’m going to try the hybrid manual process with Magicplan one last time, but its “scan the corners of the room”guidance doesn’t really work with a giant loft space.

Why do techbros keep trying to make VRML happen?

Elton John invited a bunch of my other favorite artists and created “The Lockdown Sessions”.

It’s his best album in years. I’ve listened to it twice this evening.

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.

I just had a pleasant customer service experience with the California Franchise Tax Board.

The representative was courteous, knowledgeable, and—most importantly—empowered to correct an egregious error on the FTB’s side.

(This is not me. I'm all-in on Thunderbolt and the only memory card I have touched in the last 5 years was for my Nintendo Switch.)

I prefer to use separate cables for my monitor, power, and peripherals.

I prefer to use physical media cards because my other equipment still doesn't have gigabit Wi-Fi.

Who am I?

The professional Apple pandered to in creating the new MacBook Pro.

Linux on the notebook now means getting an inferior OS, inferior CPU/GPU, inferior battery life, and inferior display.

This is what the open/libre ecosystem is up against now. Unless you’re Snowden, no one would accept these tradeoffs.

Intel keeps getting its ass handed to it by Apple silicon.

There’s nothing remotely close to comparable to Apple’s notebook line.

Lots of companies *could* do what Apple does, but no one does. It’s not even a competition at this point.
