Can Trump Really Slam the Brakes on Electric Vehicles? He has vowed to shred President Biden’s E.V. policies and has threatened that “You won’t be able to sell those cars.” (www.nytimes.com)

While a Trump presidency couldn’t slam the brakes on the E.V. transition, it could throw enough sand in the gears to slow it down. And that might have significant consequences for the fight to stop global warming.

Best Buy Membership "discount" (lemmy.world)

So I was shopping with my wife today and I said “oh let’s see if my membership helps out.” So we went and added the same item to each of our carts, and to our surprise, the total was the same! So what is it exactly that I’m paying for in this membership if the items “original price” is higher for me than it is for...

I go there and do their price match for harddrives when I need them day-of, which surprisingly they still honor. So that $90-$100 nonsense is usually $60-$70 for me as it should be.

Edit: brain fart, that’s Office Depot. I have no clue if Best Buy does price matches anymore

Local Mom’s Wine Club Cleverly Disguised as a Book Club, Fools No One But Themselves (lemmy.world)

In a quiet suburban neighborhood where minivans outnumber streetlights, a group of women have been ingeniously disguising their love of wine as a book club. While their intentions may be transparent to everyone else, these winos insist that their guise is a stroke of genius. “It’s a sophisticated literary club that explores...

This is starting to shift from blaming the GQP/rapists to applying a stigma to the children themselves. I’d be a little careful with this phrasing.

I’m willing to bet $100 this ain’t happening.

Except study after study shows it isn’t the cause.

Online radicalization is by far the central issue here. It’s one’s peers that are the issue. Violent games are at worst an indicator of tendencies, not a cause.

that is also not a conclusion we have seen from studies

If you don’t shoot anyone your cover is blown and they kill you. So you either skip or don’t play the game

Edit: wait no I made that up

Go use Adobe audio enhance and tell me AI is a scam lol

Yes most of it is trash but I use probably 3-4 AI tools a day in video editing right now. Audio AI tools are unbelievable across the board in my experience. Topaz Labs does video upscaling like I’ve never seen in my life no matter how experienced the professional at the wheel.

It really is an industry to industry situation.

Harambe became famous because of what happened IIRC so is that really applicable?

Still never liked those jokes tbh. Very sad event.

I didn’t realize there was a problem. So did all the streaming services fuck up the colors or something?

I enjoy dark satire as much as the next person, but it's pretty easy to explain why a magazine would not want him to write again after that. They got a fictional tale about a man beating his wife than killing himself when they asked for a review of sims DLC lol

I mean, he clearly saw what was coming. It has come to pass lol

I really do get all of this (with one caveat), but if I was running that magazine, EA pressuring or not, I would have to have a talk with that writer. I also imagine this is not the first time they had done something like this. I feel like we are missing a lot of context.

I do not agree we should encourage self harm because of somebody’s social/class status or wealth.

he did it on 2016 too. He’s always preparing to control the narrative regardless of the truth.

All I know is I booted Mint OS after getting several reccs for it, and the first thing I was greeted to was my Wi-Fi card not working, my keyboard couldn’t light up, and no right click lol.

I have since learned more and am enjoying Linux. But let’s not pretend it’s just some sort of fire and forget solution. Which a lot of people want at the end of the day. Even booting onto an older Intel Mac can be a real pain in the ass.

My dude it was the lemmy and mastodon communities that pushed me there lol

yes, it’s currently dual booted on my Intel Mac. Took about 10 minutes of effort then a bunch of waiting around. Had a Valheim server running that day as well as a few other games installed and tested. No drivers needed, though I’m sure that happens to folks. This was windows 10 about 2 years ago

The transcripts are fully available. All the information is there.

After MTG paraded around photos of Hunter Biden’s penis to Congress I wouldn’t want them to have all available media to use at-will either.

I said some people. If that’s not how you operate then you have nothing to worry about.
