A whole slate of new laptops are coming, and of course, manufacturers are trying to impress us with THINNESS! What about test driving a machine at the complete OPPOSITE of the thinness spectrum? https://somegadgetguy.com/b/45T

It's so rad to do a sponsored video like this, and the first thing they ask is "Can you blast our laptop with a hose?"

It's big, thicc, and chunky, but there are SO MANY things on this Getac I wish I had on "regular" thin laptops...

A woman attempted to commit suicide due to being trolled on social media. Trolling is dangerous nowadays, it spreads hearted and take lives of innocent people!

The Kilpauk police on Tuesday arrested three YouTubers, including a woman anchor, on charges of driving a 23-year-old woman to attempt ending her life after they posted an interview of her without her consent.

Quelle surprise. But what's worrying is how apparently 'tech 'n meeja' savvy young people are so easily taken in by propaganda - err, I mean 'hype and marketing'.

"...Very few people are regularly using "much hyped" artificial intelligence (AI) products like ChatGPT, a survey suggests...

"...But the study... says young people are bucking the trend, with 18 to 24-year-olds the most eager adopters of the tech..."

"In 2018...the 5bn YouTube hits for the viral song Despacito used the same amount of energy it would take to heat 40,000 US homes annually.

This is a hugely environmentally destructive side to the tech industry. While it has played a big role in reaching net zero, giving us smart meters and efficient solar, it’s critical that we turn the spotlight on its environmental footprint"

Today I spent several hours trying to help a friend think up ways to take control of the messaging for his dance organization. It's more or less just him running it at the moment but it's on the order of 100 people who are interested and sometimes come to his dance events. Right now it's communicating mostly through Facebook and Instagram. We talked about ways to make a website, forum, blog, sell subscriptions, calendaring 1/

In this article, which was adapted from an excerpt of the book, he details the varied Chinese input systems of the 1960s and ’70s that renounced QWERTY altogether."

This is super interesting. It's just a conversation with a research about a study on LLM actual potential. It's only a 13min video, but basically the study shows that most likely AI can't have infinite growth because there is a limited amount of data available to train on.

There's a finite amount of data & no matter how they mathed it out, it's not a J-curve or linear growth of AI's capabilities, but an S-curve every time.

There’s a difference between being useful and being a usefool.

A usefool is someone who launders their legitimacy to benefit corporate interests for short-term gain. They do so even if, ultimately, it’s against their own interests and those of others in the longer term. (1/3)

All this to say, don’t be a usefool.

There has been a lot of talk lately in tech circles and on YouTube about
how to get out of receiving AI-generated suggestions when you do a web
search -- which is now increasingly the default on Google.

While sometimes convenient, AI suggestions have 3 main problems:
a) They are often wrong,
b) They make you scroll way down the page to see the actual websites, &
c) They use all the earth's websites as their database, thereby stealing
everyone's content and rendering visiting the actual content creator
websites mute (unless AI answers wrong).

Here are some ways to turn off the AI in web search:

  1. https://searx.tuxcloud.net/search -- This site is part of a network
    of privately hosted sites using the same open-source search software. I
    notice that you can not do a site-specific search like in Google or
    DuckDuckGo ("site:microsoft.com Outlook questions"). See also
    https://searx.space/ for a list of other search URLs in the network.

  2. Set your default search engine to Wikipedia:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search

  3. Change your Google search default to: *
    https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&udm=14*

You probably can't edit the existing Google listing, so you'll need to
create a new search shortcut. Some directions on how to do this can be
found at:*
