Whatever it turns out you are

slated in mused, mainstream at 8:44 pm

One of my favorite lines from The Magicians is “I’m the official sidekick to whatever it turns out you are.“ I like it for several reasons, and I like that the show is such a ridiculous and realistic and absurd mash of relationships and people and friendships and sexual experiences and even the ones that despise each other still come through and protect one another and it’s real friendship and love, never mind where they are in which official whatever relationships.

iPad offered me news. It started by telling me about a gun going through an airport undetected by TSA and the nonsense surrounding that; then told me that video games are more available by indie developers now due to accessible game engines; then told me about a gas station police standoff involving gasoline, threat of fire, and a drone delivering a vape pen. What the heck, News! What the heck!

Better on the outside

slated in consumed, mainstream at 1:20 pm

I don’t like the new interior of the entrance. Now instead of “bigger on the inside”, it’s “extra-dimensional addition that couldn’t be seen/accessed from the outside”.

And why are the words repeated inside and wrong way right readable? In case someone inside forgets what the outside looks like?

Maybe they’ll explain some brilliant reasoning for all this. Until then, I don’t like it.

Side-by-side Comparison: Google Pixel 2 XL (2017) vs. Pixel 3 XL (2018)

slated in consumed, mainstream at 1:20 pm

Spreadsheet to Compare Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 3 XL phones by Google.

128gb storage capacity is perfectly respectable as an option, however as a maximum option for storage capacity it is simply pathetic in 2018. It was woeful in 2017. I also wonder what it will take for them to up the ram; it’s not like their efficiency with 4gb has been impressive.
Otherwise, (and totally ignoring the notch, which would not have been my route) it’s still the best available phone.

‪@apple brings me some joy and a lot of grief; the lows are too low. Apple ID, no listing, individual privacy control, no data control.‬

I put 12 socks in the washer and only 11 came out. This happens a lot. Where does the missing sock go?

Intelligence is not consciousness. Intelligence is the ability to solve problems. Consciousness is the ability to feel things.

Reddit does not understand the internet. Closing older articles to any new comments, just as a matter of elapsed time, is so much nonsense I don’t know how to even.

Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T LTE verzion..

slated in mainstream at 4:38 pm

“There is a dual-core Transformer Pad version heading to US with LTE as the quad-core processor is not yet compatible with LTE network.” —webtechpoint (July 18, 2012)

What on earth?!
What kind of ridiculous….
Unacceptable trade-off.

That’s more information I’ve heard about the expected LTE version of the Infinity than anywhere else, at least, albeit being negative info.
