@nolan I really try to defend Apple as much as possible, when pitted against Android... but _why_ Apple hasn't spun-off Safari into its own individual app, updated through the App Store (like Chrome, on Android) is beyond me.
If you were to say they're doing it on purpose, to hamstring browsers so you're forced to use apps, I would believe it.
scorching hot food take
@srol I don't know -- I maybe used to think this until I experienced some really authentic Indian food. Then I learned that, despite food being full of flavor, having tons of dipping sauces is just fun!
@baldur Huh. So 1) hucksters 2) critics 3) old fogies stuck in the past.
This must be why so much of what people do with tech today bores me.
@evilscientistca M57! One of the first big stellar objects I saw in a telescope as a kid. Will always remember that.
@fribbledom I love voice mail for this reason. Even if I recognize the number... sometimes I just let it go to voice mail anyway. 😆
I'm always busy, so weirdly if I even answer a call, it's usually on my watch.
That sounds like a very useful kind of test, and I am surprised I've never encountered this before. :\ (I've even been involved with hiring for about 7 years now.)
@ajroach42 I don't know what an IC1 codetest is, but I've always found the best way to learn code is just to jump right in, with a purpose (like when I wanted to build an automated light using a Raspberry PI -- all the code was in Python).
Is this tech a "self-starter?" A "Raspberry PI + some sort of light" might be a great place to start.
@nolan Wow -- that read was _depressing_. 😩
This person dreamed about Twitter in the same way that someone who struggled with alcoholism probably dreams about giant liquor bottles.
And the saddest thing? They're probably back on Twitter now.
@ajroach42 Haven't heard anything about this -- is there a certain case you're thinking of?
I agree with what another commenter said about the Oracle v. Google case not being great for the "little guy" in the end -- as much as I dislike Oracle... that take isn't incorrect.
