Tl;Dr: They’re saying pretty much what we expected.

Well, it does jive with what all the tech folks expected since it follows how OSs have always deleted files by deleting only the meta data. This is how recovery programs are able to recover corrupted and deleted data. This is obviously a simplified version but you get the idea.

And that’s the biggest issue so far with “AI.” It’s about as intelligent as a newborn.

Sounds great expect that most small business owners do a shit job of running the operations of a business. At best they stumble through it. It’s just not their passion to deal with legalities, OSHA, taxes, payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, etc.

The problem with MBAs is that they have little or no practical experience with the business they’re running (seasonality, how to motivate employees, etc). There are some good MBAs out there but there are so many more poor ones. They aren’t looking at the human factor at all. It’s a space that the universities don’t teach for. Everything is KPI related instead. That’s their ultimate downfall.

Not sure why this was posted here. It’s not surprising an elderly lady had that opinion.

First wedding dresses are traditionally white. After that they aren’t. She wasn’t wrong but standards have moved on without her.

Netflix Windows app is set to remove its downloads feature, while introducing ads (www.techradar.com)

Netflix has managed to annoy a good number of its users with an announcement about an upcoming update to its Windows 11 (and Windows 10) app: support for adverts and live events will be added, but the ability to download content is being taken away....

This is part of why I like Apple TV+ so much. I watched two episodes of Slow Horses in 1080p HDR on my iPhone while in an airplane. It was fantastic.

Eero’s home network ad blocker paired with AdGuard. Works well enough. Although so many people have blockers now that even my favorite sites, which I whitelist, are tough to read because of the amount of ads keeping them in business. ArsTechnica I’m looking at you. Yeah, I could subscribe but I’m a cheap bastard. I’d rather be able to retire than pay for a site.

At the end of the day, Xi Jinping has blundered his way into a strategic cul-de-sac.

Well said.

Don’t get caught up in the phrasing, which should be tailored to each individual need in the moment. Instead, look at what they’re saying, just ask questions and actively listen. They should do more of the talking and people love to tell stories, especially of loved ones. This isn’t going to be the best approach for everyone but it will be for most people.

“People buy based on emotion, not logic.”

Great advice for the sales world. And let’s face it, everyone, including you, is selling something.

4ish years ago when I bought a house I was convinced not to get a house inspection, would it be crazy to get one now just to make sure it's all good?

Was 25 and super nervous, so when the realtor was like “oh yeah they just check for basic stuff, but I looked around and it looks great” I was like “Oh okay, this is so astronomically expensive every penny saved is good…”...

And don’t be surprised at the prices on actual fixes not just shitty band-aids. They’re crazy expensive.

Ex. My home builder didn’t put a sump pump in our new build (and honestly, they should’ve forced us to have a few) and we didn’t know this would be an issue. In the monsoon season we got flooding, yay. A permanent fix with a lifetime warranty of 3 sumps was $25K. If we had put it in during building it would’ve been a few thousand. Peace of mind is typically gonna cost you.

If you have a basement I’d recommend they check the foundation. Have a plumber check your system (PRV, expansion tank, water heater, valves, toilets, drain lines). If it’s an older house have them check the electrical panel and wiring. They don’t last forever and can cause fires. How is the roof doing? HVAC system? Etc. Find an inspector that can do a thorough inspection because they’re are some lazy ones out there or people who just don’t know what to really look for. Ideally you contact each trade to give you an in depth diagnosis.

Amen. Art is about making statements. Well, it definitely does that. Not into it.

It does not look like a F-150. Maybe a Nissan Frontier.

That’s interesting. On average the stock market rises ~8%/yr so only Obama’s 1st term outpaced. Biden just kept up. Trump … well, lol.

Honestly Apple Maps is better in my area by a decent margin. It’s up to date sooner and that matters in a rapidly growing city. Google still beats it in search but even then AM finds things it doesn’t at times. i just wish they’d move on from shitty Yelp. I vastly prefer AMs navigation over GM as well.

I don’t remember my dreams most nights. I also have a terrible memory so it doesn’t surprise me. I go to sleep blissfully and wake up realizing time has past but not remembering anything I dreamt. Sounds awful but I don’t typically like the dreams I do have (usually brought on by me being too hot while asleep).
