@dajbelshaw @daibarnes I’m enjoying the return of TIDE. Glad the mention of Homo Deus didn’t turn into a complete spoiler, as I’m about halfway through it at the moment. Taking a break from it to read American Gods, but I intend to go back to it despite what you said! I rarely if ever give up on a book. Probably should have given up on a few over the years, though. I’ll be able to listen to rest of TIDE tomorrow.
@dajbelshaw Yeah, I’m thinking hybrid might be the way to go. I have a 60-70km round trip each day. Some hybrids seem to be mostly petrol, with only a small bit coming from electricity. Toyota seem to be about the best option. I have a Civic, so I like Honda, but their Insight hybrid is something like 90hp from Petrol and 10hp from battery.
Who has one?
Anyone with opinions and advice to share?
@dajbelshaw (2/2)... But one could accuse Apple of fragmentation now. Even iOS 11 behaves differently depending on which device you’re using. I remember a time when all Apple keynotes had a dig at a Android fragmentation, but this was a glaring omission on the latest keynote! Personally, Apple still offers a better experience for me, but I’m not in any rush to buy a new iPhone. My “6” is coming up on 3 years old and it’s fine.
@dajbelshaw That’s very true. For the most part, though, then usually improve on how others have done it. Or at least, the tech becomes more mainstream when they do it. FaceID will be the norm in a while. Likewise AR will be far more ubiquitous now. I just wish they were more consistent with the UI and cables across their devices. iPhones were at their best when there was just 1 or 2 models on the market at a time. It was a strength, compared to the fragmentation of android....(1/2)
@dajbelshaw nice title for the week that’s in it! As an Apple user (and fan, for the most part), I have to say they seem a bit disjointed at the moment. Too many products each with a slightly different UX just seem like the “Apple way” to me. I think Steve is turning in his grave. There are definitely issues with FaceID, but given a couple of years, it’ll be everywhere. 1st iPhone was the same.
@dajbelshaw interesting read. I see you’re interpreting the “new” T&C as being “new” too, although I’ve been told on a number of occasions here that they’ve actually been like that for a good while now. I like the link to the sunk cost fallacy. I hadn’t heard the term before, but of course I’m very familiar with the concept!
@econproph I’m reasonably careful about what I tweet these days anyway. I don’t put anything up that I wouldn’t want the world to see. I was thinking more about perhaps artists that tweet their original work, and how the ownership maybe be affected under the T&C (which although not new, are effectively new if people are only realising now....I’m not the only one that is just becoming aware of it).
So, has the birdsite changed the T&C again??? I read something yesterday about ownership of tweets. I *think* it means that no matter what you tweet (inc. original artwork/photos), you hand ownership to the Big T. Pretty crap for anyone sharing their own artwork there. Will this be the last straw and boost Mastodon numbers?
