@kuba Apple na przykład:
- komfort - brak interoperacyjności.
- kontrola - cenzura na App Store i brak możliwości instalowania aplikacji z innych źródeł.
- spokój - na pewno nie ducha.
Ale za to wszyscy o mnie dobrze myślą bo mam iPhona $latestRelease co kosztuje tyle co nerka.

Śmiem nawet twierdzić, że większość prestiżowych rzeczy nie jest luksusowa

Martwi mnie, że ludziom się miesza "luksus" z prestiżem. Rzeczy luksusowe to komfort, kontrola i spokój, a rzeczy prestiżowe skupiają się tylko na tym, jak widzą cię inni. Ważne rozgraniczenie.

Oni na serio mają problem ze zrozumieniem roznicy pomiedzy "nie zaleca się" a "zaleca się nie"?

When you buy a gallon of gas, who pays for the pollution, the carbon it emits, which heats the planet? Right about now, nobody does. But over the next few decades, someone’s going to have to.

Can you believe these colors!?
I like colors a lot in fact. My black and white challenge is a side project I started in order to work more with values cause I don't understand them enough.

Study reveals scale of data-sharing from Android mobile phones:

Even when minimally configured and the handset is idle, with the notable exception of e/OS, these vendor-customized Android variants transmit substantial amounts of information to the OS developer and to third parties such as Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Facebook that have pre-installed system apps. There is no opt-out from this data collection.

I happen to be using /e/ OS for the last ~2 years on all my #android phones and quite pleased to read it.

Web dev be like:

"I want to detect if a CSS variable has been changed"
"Sure, here's a very hacky solution with very specific requirements that are a pain to implement because there's no official way to do this"
"I want to detect if a user is sitting in a >3m² room, alone, and hasn't blinked in the last 2 seconds"
"You can use this 1-liner that utilizes the RoomSizeUserPresenceAndEyeBlink API Google pushed into standards to totally not improve their tracking of users"

i want people to stop using the word "content" to mean literally every kind of work or any kind of creative endeavour that was persisted in any kind of medium

And, btw, i realize that we used to have a different word for the same concept: whether it was a song, a newspaper article, a theater play, it was "a piece"

so why does "content" feel so much worse?

a lot of people my age don't have TV because we realize the value proposition of "wait I pay for your service, and you STILL advertise to me?" is complete horseshit

there is no such thing as a "labor shortage". there is only an unwillingness to raise wages

Please donate to Mozilla Corporation, their CEO is trying to scrape by on just a little over $3,000,000/year. I’m sure you can all relate to how hard that can be so, please, dig deep this giving season.

Recently, there has been misinformation about #Mozilla's browser #Firefox claiming that a new feature called #FirefoxSuggest would send any address bar inputs to advertising companies by default.

This is not true.

In reality, all sponsored suggestions are given offline by default, meaning that no additional user data is sent anywhere. Online suggestions are strictly opt-in.

Please do not spread false information.

I'm here for like two weeks. It feels much better than constantly being on Facebook. I'm calmer and more present.

But I really miss my #yarn and #handspinning tribe. I have noone to really share this passion with in real life, and there seems to be like I'm the only mastodon user in this niche.
Maybe I should not care and just create. It just feels a bit lonely like this.

Or maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate the #fediverse. But I'm really not that geeky Person...
