โ€œThe certain knowledge that Kevin Roose is a credulous dumbass who makes a jingle-bell sound if he nods his head real fast only does so much to moderate the obscenity and offensiveness of his ascribing โ€˜playful intelligenceโ€™ and โ€˜emotional intuitionโ€™ to a predictive text generator.โ€

OnlyFansโ€™ top earners have a hard time keeping up with their customersโ€™ demands. Remember that next time youโ€™re chatting with your favorite online influencer girlfriend. Because the person youโ€™re talking to may in fact be one of a rotating cast of low-wage workers. Wired has more in this captivating account by Brendan I. Koerner, a writer who went undercover to unveil a sordid netherworld that, according to at least one lawyer, defrauds customers, generally men, out of thousands of dollars.

@cory ever since I left the birdsite, Iโ€™ve been spending more time on forums (message boards) so Iโ€™ve basically come full circle. I need to dust off my old HAM radio and make sure it still works before the downfall of civilization.

@shwnwllms a HAM radio sounds like a good idea at this point โ€” I'm honestly glad social media cracked up the way it has.

OnePlus 12 WiFi Mystery! Why is my phone connecting to an Network?

https://somegadgetguy.com/b/45G

CONTROVERSY! It's a little concerning. My phone keeps trying to connect to a mystery network, listed as an ISP WiFi that (to my knowledge) doesn't do business here in California. Has anyone else seen something like this? What's going on?

sslaia,

@SomeGadgetGuy O gosh I hope this isn't another spyware similar to the ones you uncovered on the mini pc.

Remember when tech CEOs whipped us into a frenzy about generative AI changing everything? Those days are long gone.

Google and OpenAIโ€™s latest demos show the bubble is deflating, but theyโ€™re still going to seize as much power as they can before the crash.

โ€œLet Them Eat Cakeโ€ is a truly incredible, dark comedy & anti-capitalist short film. You should watch it before they get sued out of existence, because they speak the truth.

(Also Iโ€™m so glad that โ€œGmod faceโ€ has become a genre staple.)

Wireless charging sucks!
(Sucks more power that is.)
My buddy Ricky and I did a one-off experiment comparing wireless charging to FAST cabled charging. You can watch part one here https://somegadgetguy.com/b/442

I was pleasantly surprised that Qi charging had improved and kept case temperatures better in check, but we still saw elevated temperatures for roughly two hours on a full charge.

Now, iFixit delivers even more data on wireless charging, and it's not great. You're trading a lot of waste and heat for some mediocre "convenience"...

@SomeGadgetGuy Well.. That's not a novum. These are simple laws of physics that are taught in school. A circuit not galvanically connected will always need more energy to transfer it than a connected one. It's a thing well known for years, since the beginning of the electricity era.

SomeGadgetGuy,
@SomeGadgetGuy@techhub.social avatar

@MartinBe in tech influencer land, there's been this push for the "convenience" of wireless charging, but that seems like it's all been built on phones that charge slow over a cable. "It's basically the same".
Apple and Samsung perpetuate this battery anxiety where the phones charge so slow, you need to be topping them off every time you set them down.
That means more accessory sales, and Qi pads are more expensive than USB cables.
